Genes Involved in Plant Defense by T. Boller; F. Meins; (£64.00)Publisher: Springer-Verlag — 1992Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 0387823123]Condition: Good+. Ex-company library with lable to the spine and stamp to ffep. Mildly bumped at head & tail of spine and corners. Text bright and tight.Description: Many fungi and bacteria that associate with plants are potentially harmful and can cause disease, while others enter into mutually beneficial symbioses. Co-evolution of plants with pathogenic and symbiotic microbes has lead to refined mechanisms of reciprocal recognition, defence and counter-defence. Genes in both partners determine and regulate these mechanisms. A detailed understanding of these genes provides basic biological insights as well as a starting point for developing novel methods of crop protection against pathogens. This volume deals with defence-related genes of plants and their regulation as well as with the genes of microbes involved in their interaction with plants. Illustrated with B&W photographs, diagrams and tables.Notes: Size: 9¾" x 6½". 364 pages. Tags: Boller genes fungi plants bacteria crop protection agriculture

Human Nature: Fact and Fiction by Edited by Robin Headlam Wells & Johnjoe McFadden (£59.50)Publisher: Continuum — 2006Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0826485464]Condition: Near Fine.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “What do we mean by ‘human nature’? Is there a genetically determined core of humanity that unites us all as members of a single species? Or is the thing we call human nature a social construct? And how do we explain the mystery of human creativity? Do great writers have an intuitive grasp of what makes human beings tick, or are they merely the mouthpiece of contemporary culture? It has been claimed that ‘the greatest enterprise of the mind has always been and always will be the attempted linkage of the sciences and humanities’ (Edward O. Wilson). This ground-breaking book marks the beginning of a new dialogue between the two. Rather than focusing on the division between what C.P. Snow called ‘the two cultures’, it shows that the sciences and humanities have much to learn from each other. Points of disagreement remain. Yet there is in this volume a genuine attempt to bridge the gulf that has traditionally separated the sciences and humanities and to reach a better understanding of what it means to be human. Human Nature — Fact and Fiction is a major new contribution to the debate on human nature, set to be required reading for anyone with a background in either the arts or the sciences who is interested in understanding what defines us as human beings — in what we are, and why.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by A.

Fundamentals of Aquatic Toxicology: Effects, Environmental Fate and Risk Assessment by Edited by Gary M. Rand (£56.00)Publisher: Washington: Taylor & Francis — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1560320915]Condition: Near Fine. Remains in publishers original shrink wrap. Description: 2nd edition.

From the cover: “This text is divided into three parts. The first part describes basic toxicological concepts and methodologies used in aquatic toxicity testing, including the philosophies underlying testing strategies now required to meet and support regulatory standards.

The second discusses various factors that affect transport, transformation, ultimate distribution, and accumulation of chemicals in the aquatic environment, along with the use of modelling to predict fate.

The last section reviews types of effects or endpoints evaluated in field studies and the use of structure-activity relationships in aquatic toxicology to predict biological activity and physio-chemical properties of a chemical. This section also contains an extensive background of environmental legislation in the USA and within the European Community, and an introduction to risk assessment with case studies.”

[ISBN: 0300021461]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper.

From the cover: “In this fascinating history of the universe and its inhabitants, one of America’s most distinguished biogeologists leads us from the evolution of the cosmos to speculation on the future of mankind. Preston Cloud begins with the atom, the smallest known world out of which all other worlds are made. From the behaviour of protons, neutrons, and their satellite electrons, he turns to the behaviour of galaxies and the birth and death of stars, focusing on the life cycle of our solar system and our own small planet. Cloud describes the stages by which Earth, its atmosphere, and its oceans slowly became inhabitable by primitive, then more complex, forms of life. In considerable detail he explains the controversial chemistry by which life may have first been born into an inanimate universe. Tracing the evolution of plants and animals, Cloud demonstrates how the relatively recent development of a genus of primate mammals that calls itself Homo sapiens could have a disastrous effect on the planet. In a provocative final chapter, Cloud places mankind within the framework of this evolving global habitat and proposes a program for the survival of the human race.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Trouble Spots: The World Atlas of Strategic Information by Andrew Duncan & Michael Opatowski (£13.50)Publisher: Stroud: Sutton Publishing — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0750921714]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “The world in which we live is an increasingly dangerous place, subject to many widely differing threats that range from nuclear weapons proliferation to chemical and biological warfare, and from international crime to tribal genocide. Trouble Spots explains, through concise authoritative text and clear graphics, the causes of conflict — whether it is currently in progress, in abeyance or imminent unless preventative measures are taken.

Thematic problems such as global warming and weapons of mass destruction are reviewed, but Trouble Spots focuses mainly on unrest of a regional nature, such as in the Middle East, the Indian Sub-Continent, and in East and South-East Asia. Maps are used as a key to each topic, showing not simply the geographical features which influence military or humanitarian activity, but also the locations of the various factors contributing to the problem, for example population ethnicity or religious breakdown.

The authors give a short historical background to each problem together with a summary of recent events and steps taken by participants and third or international parties to bring about a solution. They do not attempt to criticise or offer answers, but instead concentrate on the advantages and disadvantages of possible options. They also assess the likelihood of violence spreading from the area of original outbreak. The trouble spots considered in this book are not necessarily areas of military conflict: several issues with purely political and economic implications are covered, for example the availability of vital resources such as oil and water.

Trouble Spots is meticulously researched and richly illustrated with specially commissioned maps and diagrams, and supported by a selection of evocative photographs from around the world. It is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the causes of conflict in the contemporary world.”

Preston Cloud begins with the atom, the smallest known world out of which all other worlds are made. From the behaviour of protons, neutrons, and their satellite electrons, he turns to the behaviour of galaxies and the birth and death of stars, focusing on the life cycle of our solar system and our own small planet. Cloud describes the stages by which Earth, its atmosphere, and its oceans slowly became inhabitable by primitive, then more complex, forms of life. In considerable detail he explains the controversial chemistry by which life may have first been born into an inanimate universe. Tracing the evolution of plants and animals, Cloud demonstrates how the relatively recent development of a genus of primate mammals that calls itself Homo sapiens could have a disastrous effect on the planet. In a provocative final chapter, Cloud places mankind within the framework of this evolving global habitat and proposes a program for the survival of the human race.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Guide to the Archaeological Sites of Britain by Peter Clayton (£12.50)Publisher: B. T. Batsford — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Fine - in Very Good DJ. Edges of DJ showing very slight shelf wear.Description: There are in Britain over 2,000 archaeological sites - mostly prehistoric and Roman - that can be visited. They range in size from the faint indications of a partially ploughed out barrow ( ancient burial mound) to complete circuits of wall like those at the Saxon Shore fort of Pevensey. What the visitor needs, when wandering around an ancient site, is some background information which will bring the past to life. And here it is.

Invertebrate Palaeontology and Evolution by E. N. K. [Euan Neilson Kerr] Clarkson (£12.50)Publisher: George Allen & Unwin — 1984Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0045600082]Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine. Top corner of the upper wrapper slightly dog-eared. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “This major new textbook aims to provide an authoritative and up-to-date treatment of those parts of palaeontology of greatest interest to the undergraduate geologist or earth scientist. It deals comprehensively with all the main groups of invertebrate fossils and introduces evolution and palaeoecology largely in the context of a systematic treatment of taxa which continues to be the essential basis of undergraduate studies.

Palaeontology has developed rapidly in the past thirty years. The traditional topics of palaeontography, taxonomy and biostratigraphy have been greatly expanded and refined. Details of form and structure have been elucidated and microstructure has been revealed in great detail since the advent of the scanning electron microscope in 1965. Interest in palaeoecology, functional morphology and global distribution has also grown strongly, such that they are now well established topics in undergraduate courses. This book presents an integrated treatment of all these aspects, based firmly on the continuing need for a sound knowledge and understanding of the organisms themselves which ensures that the exciting general concepts are properly anchored to geological and biological reality.

The book is profusely illustrated with fully annotated line drawings and photographs, all specially prepared for this particular purpose. Each chapter contains a carefully prepared list of references and further reading, each entry being accompanied by a helpful note to indicate its importance and usefulness to the reader.

Undergraduate students of palaeontology at the introductory and intermediate levels should find the book to be particularly helpful. It is likely to be of greatest interest to geologists and earth scientists, but zoologists, environmental scientists and others should also find it useful.”

Coming Out of the Kitchen: Women Beyond the Home by Una A. Robertson (£11.50)Publisher: Sutton Publishing — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

From the cover: “Until relatively recently it was generally assumed that marriage was the only career for a woman, after which she was confined to the home, immersed in her domestic duties. Achievement in all spheres was, it was supposed, the preserve of men only. In fact, as this new book clearly reveals, there were numerous women who, with minimal education, little financial independence and only basic domestic skills, pursued active and highly successful roles in the world outside the home. Well illustrated and beautifully presented, Coming Out of the Kitchen is the perfect celebration of three centuries of women's achievement, redressing the balance with more traditional history and scuppering for good the notion that the role of women began and ended with marriage. It will be essential reading for women, and men, everywhere.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Red boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 216 pages.

The Creation of Life: From Chemical to Animal by Andrew Scott (£11.50)Publisher: Basil Blackwell — 1988Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0631163360]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “One of the deepest mysteries in science is the question of how we ever came to be here — the mystery of the origins of life. The search for solutions to that mystery leads us into further puzzles and challenges. Is there life elsewhere in the universe? If we can understand how life began, can we recreate its origin in the laboratory? And can we then create new life forms based on our own designs?

The idea that life originated spontaneously on the early earth through a long sequence of chemical reactions has become an accepted part of modern scientific dogma. The seven days of God’s creation have been replaced with an account that starts with the big bang and a primordial soup, and leads on to ‘fishes’ that evolved their way onto the land eventually to give rise to us. This tale has been repeated so often and with such conviction that it has almost gained the status of scientific fact. Yet it remains just one — uncertain and incomplete — version of how it all began.

In The Creation of Life Andrew Scott casts a critical eye over the explanations of life’s origins and evolution offered by modern science, identifying both weaknesses and strengths. He discusses the ‘breakthroughs’ that have been made, both experimental and theoretical, as well as the many problems that remain unsolved; and he explains in vivid terms the intricacies of the chemicals of life. He also examines the possibilities of life existing elsewhere throughout the universe, and of mankind eventually creating completely novel forms of life.

Despite a ferment of new ideas and discoveries, the mystery of life’s creation is a biological detective story that is likely to remain unfinished for many years to come..”

The Silent Revolution: The Development of Conventional Weapons 1945-85 by Guy Hartcup (£11.50)Publisher: London: Brassey's — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 008036702X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The awful threat of nuclear war has tended to blind people to the great advances in conventional weapons technology that occurred in the latter half of the twentieth century. These were years of unprecedented investment in research and development, and despite the cost, of unparalleled scientific advancement. The Silent Revolution is the first book to chart the worldwide development of the whole spectrum of modern weapons systems since the closing years of the Second World War.

Guy Hartcup’s comprehensive study covers the many new weapon systems ranging from guided missiles to chemical weapons that have revolutionised air, land and sea warfare, and equally important, the scientific applications including electronics, communications and sensors, as well as the ability of the fighting man to handle new equipment. As a former official historian to the UK Air Ministry and the Treasury, he draws extensively upon official documents now released under the thirty year rule and upon the mass of unclassified material in the public domain covering more recent developments on both sides of the Atlantic. He has produced a unique study in which not only the weapons systems and their technology are examined but also the internecine strife between the services, each competing for a bigger share of the defence budget, and the impact of this and countless political cancellations on new projects.

The book ends on a timely warning against the dangers of succumbing to what the author calls ‘technophilia’, reminding us that, despite the widespread use of new technological wonders in the Gulf War, much of the weaponry used was based on technology going back tens of years.”

Rubicon: The Fifth Dimension of Biology by Anthony K. Campbell (£10.50)Publisher: London: Duckworth — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715624997]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with a couple of scuffs to the upper panel. Pages very gently age-tanned. A decent copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Rubicon is a startling new theory of biology. It redefines the science in a revolutionary new framework, enabling us to tackle the major problems confronting medicine and the environment.

The central argument of Anthony Campbell’s new thesis is that all real biological phenomena involve quantum leaps, or ‘rubicons’, the transition between each state taking anything from a fraction of a second to a million years of evolution.

Much has been learnt since the word ‘biology’ — the ‘science of life’ — was first used nearly two hundred years ago. But Rubicon argues that we still have not explained what life is really about. What happens when we get an inspired idea, or a headache, or we lose our temper? How can some people carry the AIDS or hepatitis virus without being ill and yet to others they are lethal? What really caused the mysterious disappearance of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago? Throughout nearly 4,000 million years of evolution rubicons abound, from individual molecules up to complete ecosystems; yet they have either been ignored or at least not been explained. An exciting technology using genetic engineering now enables us to view the chemical basis of Rubicon in individual cells.

Rubicon is aimed at a wide audience, and will also be thought-provoking to students and professional scientists. Difficult concepts are explained through analogy, humour and experiment. The book adopts a fresh, scholarly approach to biology and medicine, and recreates pathways of discovery made by distinguished scientists from the past. It knocks several icons on the head: Caia, the misconception of homeostasis, contemporary evolutionary theory and the scientific philosophy of Karl Popper. It also gives a new perspective on Darwin. If we are to solve the problems facing man and the environment in the four time-and-space dimensions, biology and medicine must first identify the fifth dimension — Rubicon.”
