Accident and Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide by Nigel Raby, Laurence Berman & Gerald de Lacey (£28.00)Publisher: W. B. Saunders Company — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0702019054]Condition: Near Fine. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Junior doctors in the Accident and Emergency Department will find this an invaluable pocket book to assist them when assessing radiographs. It provides a concise and systematic approach whereby most radiographic abnormalities are readily and easily detected.

This book concentrates on radiological abnormalities which are significant, but frequently overlooked by the inexperienced doctor, who may have to make a clinical decision without the help of a radiologist. The majority of chapters follow a similar template and describe:
  • normal and relevant radiological anatomy
  • a systematic scheme for viewing the radiographs
  • common diagnostic pitfalls and sources of error
The book is based on a course developed over the many years that the authors have been teaching radiology to non-radiologists. Whilst it has been written primarily for the Accident and Emergency junior doctor, it also offers the trainee radiologist and orthopaedic surgeon an excellent primer of accident and emergency radiology.”

Here to Stay: A Collection of Pieces on a Common Theme of Human Tenacity by John Hersey (£25.50)Publisher: Hamish Hamilton — 1962Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with a little spotting. Price. Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty.Description: From the cover: “In Here To Stay John Hersey tells of episodes in the past 20 years in which Man has courageously risen above desperate situations and shown his determination to survive despite the threats of the nuclear age.

Appropriately Mr. Hersey first tells the story of John Kennedy’s heroism in rescuing the crew of his P. T. boat, sunk by the Japanese, seventeen years before he became President. He ends with his famous Hiroshima, the story of the survivors of the first atomic bombing, written from personal investigation, with horrifying detail and compassionate indignation.

Between these two pieces we read of several wartime incidents, a Jew’s sufferings in Auschwitz, a crippled G.I.’s difficulties in adjusting himself to civilian life, the rehabilitation of a G.I. paralysed with fright, and the adventures of two Poles who survived persecution. In addition there are the extraordinary story of the old lady marooned on a rooftop amidst floods caused by a tornado; a study of that great American, President Truman, and a most moving account of an escape from Budapest in 1956.

All John Hersey’s books have had a serious purpose. A Bell for Adano drew attention to Italy’s plight; The Wall studied the Polish Jews’ struggle against tyranny; The War Lover exposed the war mentality; The Child Buyer showed up the exploitation of youthful talent. Here To Stay is a stirring reminder of our inherent ability to face the challenge of extinction which now faces the world.”

From the cover: “This remarkable book, now greatly expanded by the authors since their collaboration began in 1969, is the sum of the experience of two brilliant and highly literate anglers. It is a pleasure to read and vastly instinctive — illustrated throughout with hundreds of photographs and drawings. Every page bears witness to the authors’ angling skills, to their originality of thought and to their appetite for research. Throughout the book there are frequent — often substantial — quotations from angling literature ancient and modern, chosen not only for the merit of the writing but for the value of the ideas expressed.”

The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents by David Beaty (£19.00)Publisher: London: The Scientific Book Club — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Bruised at the tail of the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned with heavier offset to the endpapers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [2]; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Although considerable progress has been made in increasing the reliability of airplanes, very little has been accomplished in reducing the element of human error in aircraft accidents.

So said the first International Civil Aviation Organisation’s first volume of accident reports seventeen years ago. But in the interim the view that human error accidents are inevitable has prevailed. It is this view that David Beaty attacks in The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents. Investigating into an almost totally unexplored area, he has related aircraft accidents to known psychological concepts of fatigue, perception, laterality, conflict, frustration, learning and decision-taking.

This book takes a cool scientific look at the whole problem. Not at all sensational, but none the less of exciting interest, it tells the stories of aircraft accidents and interprets them in psychological terms. And at the same time, it suggests the prospect that, if psychological factors were properly investigated and better understood, a considerable cut would be effected in the now, rising aircraft accident rate.”

Contest for the Heavens by Claus Jensen (£13.00)Publisher: The Harvill Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1860462162]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “In January 1986 the space shuttle Challenger, the latest and most sophisticated addition to a programme of space exploration refined over forty years since the development of the German V-2 rockets, blasted off from Kennedy Space Center only to explode 73 seconds into its flight. The bodies of the seven astronauts, two of them women, were later pulled up off the floor of the Atlantic. This many years into the programme, some thirty years after the Russians put a satellite into orbit, popular opinion accepted that American technological know-how had identified and mastered every key problem in putting hardware and humans into space, and riding a space shuttle was about as safe as getting on a bus. It was the Challenger disaster that prompted the big rethink. What the Presidential Commission of Inquiry discovered is that there is more to space technology than physics and mathematics: there is politics, public relations, finance, and a host of conflicting interests to reconcile. This investigation is about O-rings and tolerances, but it is chiefly about the people, the technologists, astronauts, industrialists and politicians who combined to send up the space rockets.”

Learning to Glow: A Nuclear Reader by Edited by John Bradley (£13.00)Publisher: University of Arizona Press — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816519560]Condition: Good+. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Atomic energy has been cloaked in secrecy by government, industry, and the military, but for many Americans the effects of radiation have been less than secret. Just ask the radium workers in Ottawa, Illinois, the “downwinders” of Utah, or unsuspecting veterans of the Gulf War. When told from the perspective of ordinary people, nuclear history takes on a much different tone from that of the tranquil voices of authority who always told us we had nothing to fear. In Learning to Glow, writers such as Scott Russell Sanders, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver reveal the psychic and emotional fallout of the Cold War and of subsequent developments in nuclear science. Here are stories of and by ordinary people who have suffered the consequences of the decisions made by those in power — stories that will challenge readers to re-examine their preconceptions about the way we deal with issues of nuclear arms and radioactive waste.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 317 pages.

Pilot Error: Anatomies of Aircraft Accidents by The Editors of Flying Magazine (£13.00)Publisher: Van Nostrand Reinhold Company — 1977Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0442224516]Condition: Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with the price clipped. Edges of the text block heavily tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd impression. [First Edition: 1977]

From the cover: “A turn not taken, a landmark not seen, a decision not made, or a warning not heeded — small things such as these are often the stuff of aviation accidents. However many hours of experience he or she may have, however many licenses and ratings, however much respected by other pilots, there can come a time when a wrong move will be made, and the pilot perhaps posthumously — will be held responsible for, a crash caused by pilot error.

In these transcripts of actual transmissions between pilots and controllers just prior to crashes one can see the grim scenario of mistakes leading to more mistakes. One pilot casually flies into known bad weather and bit by bit eliminates his options for escape. Another becomes lost over the Caribbean and wanders helplessly as controllers try to help her. Another determines that he will land at a socked-in airport regardless of the danger.

These incidents carry vital lessons to pilots of all degrees of experience and skill. The reader often discovers that he has at times blundered as one of the pilots does in this book and is grateful for the warning.

Accompanied by expert analyses of the errors and how to avoid them, these dialogues make for gripping reading, which is partly why “Pilot Error” has long been one of the most popular features of Flying magazine. Here are some of the most dramatic and instructive articles in that series.”

Military Aviation Disasters: Significant Losses Since 1908 by David Gero (£10.50)Publisher: Patrick Stephens Limited — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 185260574X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the lower panel with a little rubbing to the laminate. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: A non-fatal but highly spectacular military aircraft accident occurred at the International Air Tattoo, Fairford, England on 24 July 1993 when two Russian Flight Research Mig-29s collided. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “The crash of a civil airliner is nearly always reported by the media, the degree of coverage depending on various factors. These include the number killed, their nationality and the location of the disaster. However, unless an aircraft in military service comes to earth in a heavily populated area and there is a high number of casualties on the ground, the incident goes largely unreported in the press. For example, the crash of a giant Antonov An-124 transport in Russia in December 1997 was widely reported as this resulted in more than 40 fatalities on the ground, including children. In contrast, the loss of transport aircraft over the sea or in jungle areas, are rarely reported outside the specialist aviation and defence press.

Here, for the first time, is a detailed record of hundreds of losses involving military aircraft. Each year, a staggering number of military aircraft come to grief including trainers, fighters and communications aircraft and in many cases the crew survive, often thanks to their ejection seats. This book, however, is confined to major disasters, principally where there has been a significant loss of life, whether civilian or military personnel. All types are covered, from single-seat aircraft that have crashed into populated areas, perhaps after the pilot has made his escape, collisions between troop-carrying helicopters, the giant airships of the First World War which came down in the North Sea with almost monotonous regularity, to modern turboprop transports downed in a war zone by surface-to-air missiles.

These incidents are placed on record with full details of the aircraft involved, its operator, route, loss of life and location and, where known, the reasons for the crash. Unlike civil airline disasters, which are of international importance with their investigative reports made widely available, governments are not always so keen to release information on the loss of their military aircraft, especially if these have been on clandestine operations. The author has therefore had to undertake a considerable amount of detective work to piece together many of the accounts that appear here.”

New Parents: A Guide to Pregnancy, Baby and Child Care for Today’s Mothers and Fathers by Edited by Dr. David Harvey (£10.50)Publisher: Hamlyn — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0600561615]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Dust wrapper a little age-toned but not unpleasant.Description: From the cover: “For today’s parents, the wonderful experience of bringing a baby into the world can often be spoiled by the anxieties and frustrations of coping with modern approaches to childbirth. High technology in our hospitals has produced a strong reaction from those who fear that childbirth is being dehumanized, while theories behind such important issues as breastfeeding, foetal health and post-natal depression seem to change with alarming regularity. It is small wonder that many new parents are both concerned and bewildered, and this book has been written both to inform and reassure, so that mothers and fathers on the threshold of such a momentous change to their lives remain in full command of their rapidly changing circumstances. Covering pregnancy, childbirth and childcare up to the age of five, New Parents is an essential work of reference for everyone concerned about how their baby is born and how it will grow and develop in the crucial years of early childhood. Chapters deal with every aspect, physiological and emotional, from antenatal care and the delivery itself to cleaning, bathing, nappy changing and potty training. Separate chapters deal with problem pregnancies, intensive care for newborn babies, and older children with special needs. There is also full information on pre-school development, from baby to toddler to child, while a section on the sick child covers safety and accident prevention in the home, positive health care and a full breakdown of common ailments in babies and young children, together with the appropriate steps to cope with them.”Notes: Size: 10¾" x 7½".

The Ice Master: The Doomed 1913 Voyage of the Karluk by Jennifer Niven (£10.50)Publisher: MacMillan — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0333776906]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: 2nd Impression. [First Edition: Same Year] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “It was to be the grandest and most elaborate Arctic expedition in history. In fact, it was to be the most comprehensive scientific attack on the Arctic of all time, with the largest scientific staff ever taken on such an expedition. Its leader, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, was celebrated for his studies of Eskimo life and with this expedition would find the evidence that proved his staunchly held belief that there was a last unexplored continent, hidden beneath the great polar ice cap. On 17 June 1913, the Canadian Arctic Expedition aboard the HMCS Karluk set sail from the Esquimalt Naval Yard in Victoria, British Columbia. Six weeks later, the Arctic winter had begun, the Karluk was trapped by the polar ice and those on board had been abandoned by their leader.

For five months, with the ship still frozen in a massive block of ice, the Karluk drifted further and further into the Arctic Ocean, further and further off course. On 10 January 1914, with a thunderous impact, the ice tore a hole in the ship’s hull and the Karluk’s redoubtable captain, Bob Bartlett, gave orders to abandon ship. With nothing but half the ship’s store of supplies and the polar ice beneath their feet, Captain Bartlett, twenty^ one men, an Eskimo woman and her two small daughters, nineteen dogs and one pet cat were now hopelessly shipwrecked in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, hundreds of miles from land. Nine months later, twelve survivors were rescued by a small whaling schooner and brought back to civilization.

The Ice Master is an epic tale of adventure, with a cast of characters as rich as any novel and with villains and heroes aplenty. Drawing on previously unpublished letters and journals, some of which have never been published before, Jennifer Niven has created a haunting and compelling account of the Karluk’s ill/fated journey and her crew’s desperate attempts to find a way home from the icy wastes of the Arctic.”

Monstrous Regiment: Women Rulers in Men's Worlds by Betty Millan (£9.50)Publisher: The Kensal Press — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “From Cleopatra to Thatcher, from Mary Queen of Scots to Mrs Gandhi, this book explores the perils and pleasures of being a woman ruler in a world of men. Between the accidents of dynastic and democratic methods of selecting rulers, women have carved a curious niche for themselves in the history of the civilised world. They have swerved between the cultivation of their traditional, seductive femininity in order to achieve their ends and the adoption of mannish characteristics. For in a world historically dominated by men, women in power have always had to struggle against patriarchal assumptions. This book examines the problems faced by women who tread the path of political power. The author argues that women have succeeded as rulers only by imitating men and suppressing in themselves the characteristics of their own sex. But this is not seen as a result of any inevitable female incapacity for government. Rather it is blamed on women rulers’ lack of creative vision in copying men and allowing matriarchal techniques to fall into disuse. And part of the blame lies with societies which have judged women adversely, subjecting them to discrimination and obliging women rulers to adapt to standards not naturally their own. The rise of women of power in modern democratic societies is placed in startling and illuminating relief against a broad historical background, painted brilliantly in bold strokes.”Notes: Size: 9¼" x 6¼".

Anatomy and Physiology is not treated as a separate, rather dull subject, but is shown to be closely allied to the diseases and treatments which the nurse encounters daily on the wards. The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study. Nurses should be encouraged to get into the habit of using them, since they establish links which connect one fact with another until a more complete picture of the subject is obtained. “Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

[ISBN: 9781849546669]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Light ding to the upper panel near the join. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “She was not expected to survive. She became the lady in the mask. In October 1999, Pam Warren’s life was turned on its head when she sustained horrific injuries in the Paddington rail crash. The casualties numbered thirty-one dead and over five hundred injured. Pam underwent scores of operations to rebuild her burnt body, and had to wear a plastic mask over her face for twenty-three hours a day over an eighteen-month period. Unwittingly, she became the public face of the disaster.

Over a decade on from that terrible event, From Behind the Mask charts the true inside story of Pam’s journey from victim to survivor and campaigner. Following the crash she became the UK’s leading spokesperson for improving rail safety, battling with rail management executives and the government — and winning. She was branded a troublemaker, but Pam and fellow members of the Paddington Survivors’ Group helped bring about great improvements on our railways. For years Pam remained focused on that campaign. Now, for the first time, she can tell us all what really happened. It is an inspirational story of determination and courage.”

Number 2 in the series. From the cover: “Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. And it’s not his attitude that’s the problem. It’s the trail of magical accidents — lately, disasters — that follow in his wake. Seph is a wizard, orphaned and untrained--and his powers are escalating out of control. After causing a tragic fire at an after-hours party, Seph is sent to the Havens, a secluded boys’ school on the coast of Maine. At first, it seems like the answer to his prayers. Gregory Leicester, the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and initiate him into his mysterious order of wizards. But Seph’s enthusiasm dampens when he learns that training comes at a steep cost, and that Leicester plans to use his students’ powers to serve his own dangerous agenda. In this companion novel to the exciting fantasy The Warrior Heir, everyone’s got a secret to keep: Jason Haley, a fellow student who’s been warned to keep away from Seph; the enchanter Linda Downey, who knew his parents; the rogue wizard Leander Hastings, and the warriors Jack Swift and Ellen Stephenson. This wizard war is one that Seph may not have the strength to survive..”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). In the Heir Chronicles series. 458 pages.
