  • Dominée par la fabulation et l'émotivité, soumise aux diktats de l'information en continu et des clips de 30 secondes, la politique semble avoir perdu la raison. Dans ce texte écrit expressément pour Nouveau Projet, Joseph Heath et Andrew Potter présentent leur solution pour que notre univers politique retrouve la raison: le «slow politics».

  • This book focuses on the  circumstances  that lead to the marked increased
    vulnerability of seniors and are most challenging to clinicians including the
    presence of multiple chronic medical conditions, variable losses of
    physiological function, and heterogeneity among individuals.  Written by
    the experts who lead the initiative to deliver high quality surgical and
    medical care to the elderly, Geriatrics
    for Specialists is the first book of its kind to provide the comprehensive knowledge
    specialists and associated generalists need to deliver quality health care to
    seniors.   With topics on important cross cutting issues like frailty,
    delirium and polypharmacy and specialty chapters on emergency medicine,
    anesthesia, many surgical and medical disciplines and  rehabilitation,  this book provides clinicians  the knowledge and tools needed to evaluate,
    treat and manage the unique needs of seniors.


    Geriatrics for Specialists was created as a resource for  specialist, generalists and allied health
    professionals and their students and trainees  who care for elderly patients.

  • This timely book brings readers up to date on the wide range of advances made in fisheries science since the publication in 1957 of On the Dynamics of Exploited Fish Populations (Beverton and Holt), regarded by many fisheries scientists as one of the most important books on fisheries yet published.
    Traditional fishery subjects covered include historic declines and changes in fishing fleets, fisheries management and stock assessments, data-poor situations, simulation and modelling of fished stocks, fisheries economics, assessing reproductive potential and dispersal of larvae, fisheries for sharks and rays, and use of marine technology. Additionally, related subjects of increasing importance now that ecological approaches to management are coming to the fore are presented. They include benthic ecology, ecosystem changes linked to fishing, life history theory, the effects of chemicals on fish reproduction, and use of sounds in the sea by marine life. Several chapters offer stimulating philosophical discussion of the many controversial areas still existing. This significant book, edited by Andy Payne, John Cotter and Ted Potter and containing contributions by world-renowned fisheries scientists, including many based at Cefas (where Beverton and Holt's original work was carried out) is an essential purchase for fisheries managers and scientists, fish biologists, marine scientists and ecologists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where fisheries and biological sciences are studied and taught are likely to need copies of this landmark publication.

  • Geriatrics for Specialists Nouv.

    This book aims to be a single point of reference for advances in the care of geriatric populations across medical and surgical specialties. The aging population is a unique demographic with its own health challenges. Geriatricians are specifically trained to address these challenges but few medical students or residents enter geriatrics, even as the demand for geriatric expertise increases. The practices of many medical and surgical specialists are dominated by older patients who may themselves see many specialists but rarely visit geriatricians. This updated edition elucidates the most common medical conditions seen in aging patients and translates approaches to those conditions for physicians across specialties. Divided into three sections that assemble crosscutting issues, medical specialties, and surgical and related specialties, this book serves as a guide for clinicians of all backgrounds who will work with older patients as the demographic ages further.
    This second edition of Geriatrics for Specialists expands the number of specialist chapters to reflect growth in research in aging and clinical care for older people in dermatology, plastic surgery, and behavioral neurology. All original chapters from the first edition are extensively revised and updated to reflect the rapid growth of new knowledge in the field.
