Sleep Medicine by Michael S. Aldrich (£20.50)Publisher: Oxford & New York: Oxford University Press — 1999Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 0195129571]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Number 53 in the series. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Tables;

From the cover: “This book provides accurate concise information concerning the evaluation and the treatment of patients with sleep problems. Because management of sleep disorders requires an understanding of sleep itself, the first portion discribes aspects of normal sleep. The remainder of the book follows an approach based on the clinical method, in which the chief complaints (the symptoms and the signs) and the psychosocial and the medical background of the individual are used, in conjunction with an understanding of the neurobiological and psychological basis of sleep disorders, to formulate a clinical assessment.

The results of polysomnographic studies and other laboratory tests supplement and redefine clinical information and assist with consideration of treatment options.”

Eveolution: The Eight Truths of Marketing to Women by Faith Popcorn & Lys Marigold (£18.00)Publisher: Hyperion — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0786865237]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Description: 2nd impression. [First Edition: 1999]

From the cover: “Faith Popcorn’s name is synonymous with prediction: She has accurately foretold the business and personal trends that have defined our lives for the past two decades. Her frequent media appearances and groundbreaking national best-sellers, The Popcorn Report and Clicking, have made her familiar to most of the world. Called "the Nostradamus of marketing" by Fortune magazine, Popcorn now turns her incredible acumen to one of the most important segments in marketing: the female consumer.

Every day we read about a new scientific study that confirms the physiological differences between the sexes: how women’s brains are different; how they see, hear, acquire and use language differently. What we haven’t heard is how these differences manifest themselves in the marketplace — until now.

Today, women make 80% of all purchasing decisions. In EVEolution, Faith Popcorn shows you that you cannot succeed in business or successfully start one without understanding how to market to women. Whether you make cornflakes or concrete, pillows or pixels, she reveals why women must be your chief target. Even if you just want to understand the landscape of tomorrowland, this book is a must read.”

Explanation and Power: The Control of Human Behaviour by Morse Peckham (£15.50)Publisher: The Seabury Press — 1979Binding: Paperback (Uncorrected Proof) Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. Gently faded at the spine with some soiling of the wraps. A slightly dog-eared copy. Cutting pasted to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Explanation and Power proposes a radical theory of meaning; that is, meaning as response. Meaning is not immanent in word or sign, natural or man-made. Human behaviour depends on interaction, and interaction depends upon the stabilization of the meanings of verbal and non-verbal signs. Ultimately meaning can be stabilized only by explanation and when explanation fails, by force.Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 297 pages.

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".

In Praise of Roses by Harry Wheatcroft (£9.50)Publisher: Barrie & Jenkins — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0257651446]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper ruffled with a 1" closed and tape-repaired tear at the head of the upper panel and a small patch of laminate lifting near the join. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned and slight musty.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Throughout the world the name means roses and in this book he distils his fifty years experience with the greatest of all flowers. It is like no other rose book ever written, for though naturally Harry Wheatcroft gives his own tips on cultivation and his own extensive selections of the best varieties, it is primarily a study of how roses are grown, of rose growers, and above all, of the roses themselves; their raising, naming, history, disasters and triumphs. It is a record of a lifetime’s love and care for the roses which now grace the gardens of the world.

The list of recommended varieties is a particularly useful feature for the practical gardener. Divided into types and their colours, it lists 260 varieties and gives all the information about them which any grower can ask. Several of the varieties are not yet even on the market and may well become leaders in the 19703.

160 superbly printed colour photographs are supplemented by 77 informative black and white.

The history of the rose industry is full of extraordinary and romantic stories. Harry Wheatcroft knows them all—has indeed participated in many of them. He is a friend of the great raisers and hybridisers of Europe and America and has been intimately associated with many of their successes: the two foremost varieties of our time, Peace and Super Star, owe their popularity here to him. Anyone who grows roses will find pleasure and instruction in his book. For the rose enthusiast it will be a permanent and treasured possession.”

Nutrition in Nursing The New Approach: A Handbook of Nursing Science by Lynn Fraley; Betty Kamen; (£9.50)Publisher: Keats — 1987Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0879833874]Condition: Poor. A copy for reading rather than admiring, generally shabby but text complete and acceptable. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the covers and spine. Upper wrapper slighty curled, both wrappers have light creasing. Light reading creases to the somewhat faded spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Physicians direct the course of medical treatment, but it is the nurses who are in constant contact with the patient and whose care and professional skill most directly affect the course of recovery. Now there is a new dimension to nursing, profoundly influencing not only the patient’s fight with illness but his or her lifetime health — nutrition.

Whatever the medication or treatment, optimum nutrition will enhance it, strengthening the immune system to resist disease and fortifying the body against the stress of surgery or injury, and sustaining the patient through the debilitating experience of illness. An outstanding nutritional educator and an experienced nurse and teacher present in this book the essentials of nutrition and how it applies to nursing patients — including a clear-sighted examination of the “political” and professional considerations necessary in applying this knowledge in settings where it is new.

Deeply informed and informative, Nutrition in Nursing is a landmark book and a means of enlarging the scope of the most intimately involved of the health professions.”

Radiations And Living Cells: An Introduction to Radiation Biology, in Which the Action of Penetrating Radiations on the Living Cell Is Described, With Special Reference to the Effect on Cell Division in Human Tissues by F. G. [Frederick Gordon] Spear (£9.50)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1953Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heaving fading at the spine and many small nicks and chips, heavy creasing and some loss to the head of the lower panel. Price Clipped. Spine of the book faded, as are the margins of both the boards. Leans. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “This book is a first attempt to give, from the experimental angle, a concise account of the effect of penetrating radiation on normal and diseased tissues in man. It is written for those who are interested in the ever widening frontier between physics and biology, particularly that part of the frontier concerned with medical physics and radiation biology. It collects information at present widely scattered over specialist literature, much of which is not easily accessible to the ordinary reader.

Each section of the book begins with a short description of an unirradiated tissue for comparison with the changes brought about by exposure to penetrating rays. In simple language, it gives some account of what is known about the effects of penetrating radiation on the cells composing human tissues, of how information of this kind of biological reaction is being acquired and a few of the experimental methods that are in use for increasing knowledge in this field of science.”

Sex and Civilization by [Edward George] Paul Bousfield (£9.50)Publisher: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. — 1928Binding: Hardback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently faded at the spine. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Heavy toning to the blanks. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned with some light spotting.Description: 2nd Impression. [First Edition: 1925] From the cover: “It is well-known that the present economic condition of women, who out-number the men in England alone by some two millions, is a poor one compared with that of men. To some extent, this is the result of prejudice and of legal disability. The question naturally arises: « Is this all? Supposing the prejudice and legal disability were completely swept away, would woman in general be able to take a place in the economic field in any way equal to that of man? »

The reply of a. large number of people is that she would not ; firstly on account of her physical disabilities, and secondly, on account of her temperamental disabilities.

On examination, however, it is found to be very doubtful whether her physical disabilities are nearly as great as are commonly supposed. The examination also reveals that her temperamental disabilities certainly stand very much in her way at the present time, but that with a different method of up-bringing, an altered set of ideals from childhood upwards, it might be possible that these would completely disappear. Research into the matter tends to show that her chief psychic disability is largely due to waste of energy, and, curiously enough, her excessive expenditure of energy is largely in the sexual field, although popular opinion is to the contrary. The chief psychic difference here between the man and woman is connected with the fact that the man largely concentrates his erotic energy on what may be termed the normal acts of sex (which occupy in a concentrated form a comparatively short period of time and a comparatively small amount of his psychic energy), while the woman’s sexual activity on the other hand remains in an infantile form that is spread throughout her whole life in such a way as to occupy an immense amount of both her time and her energy. This, of course, is mainly due to the extra repression which social customs have for various reasons forced upon her from early childhood, and the lack of suitable non-erotic substitutes from the same cause.”

The Sixth Man: A Startling Investigation of the Spread of Homosexuality in America by Jess Stearn (£9.50)Publisher: Doubleday & Co. — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with short tears at the spine ends. Leans. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Boards somewhat dust-stained. Tanning to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “According to police records and the statistics compiled by many health officials and doctors — and from surveys by homosexual groups — every sixth man in America today is a homosexual. This startling fact is the subject of an eye-opening and revealing study and one which is based on exhaustive research. It shows how the sixth man operates in present-day America, how he makes his contacts, and how he is often trapped by blackmailers. Jess Stearn spent months talking to homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians, social workers, and police officers, and in THE SIXTH MAN he shows how homosexuality has spread through such professions as modelling, designing, interior decoration, art, music, the theatre, films, and even in general business. It describes homosexual weddings, the special ways in which homosexuals communicate, and gives an account of the confusing life of the bisexual. There is a chapter on lesbians, and there are several chapters which explain the homosexual from a psychological and physiological point of view.

The author takes up the problem of the aging homosexual and describes the large homosexual club which flourishes openly in New York City. And, of course, he distinguishes the different kinds of homosexuals, from the gay boys who love to appear in “drag” to the sedate businessmen who keep their personal lives to themselves, and the male movie stars who are infinitely discreet. THE SIXTH MAN is a serious and authoritative book about a very real problem which confronts America and one which we cannot afford to ignore.”

Food Science, Nutrition and Health by Brian A. Fox; Allen G. Cameron; (£7.50)Publisher: Edward Arnold — 1993Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0340496754]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Upper wrapper and first few pages creased at the top corner. Leans slightly. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: 5th Edition. From the cover: “The study of food and nutrition has become increasingly sophisticated with the development of the food industry over recent years. There is now growing interest and knowledge of the relationship between diet and health and disease. This new edition of a popular text has been rewritten and updated to reflect the changing attitudes towards healthy eating, placing considerable emphasis on what constitutes healthy eating rather than just analysing food to discover what nutrients it contains. The authors still provide a comprehensive account of nutrients and the foods which contain them, covering elementary chemistry, biochemistry and physiology relevant to the practical applications of Food Science. Nutritional guidelines for healthy eating, as recommended by bodies such as the National Advisory Committee on Nutritional Education (NACNE, 1983) are fully explained. The use of food additives (including E numbers), methods of cooking, food spoilage, food poisoning and food preservation are covered, along with new chapters on fruit and vegetables, and drink, including alcoholic drink. The emphasis on nutrition and health makes this text interesting and valuable reading for all concerned with the production, cooking and preservation of food, and the need for a healthier diet.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 408 pages.

Pages deeply tanned by age. Slightly fragile now.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Assessment in clinical psychology offers an introduction and a framework to some of the main issues of assessment. Throughout this account of the practical contribution of the clinical psychologist, the author stresses the need for and the advantages of psychological testing, but he also draws attention to many shortcomings. The author describes some of the problems with which psychiatrists and others present the clinical psychologist. These problems include diagnostic assessment, evaluation of the effects of treatment, quantification of personality characteristics, determination of intellectual level, speed and persistence and their appropriateness for a particular treatment or occupation, and many others.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½").

Sense and Nonsense in Psychology by H. J. Eysenck (£4.00)Publisher: Penguin — 1966Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. Pages deeply tanned by age.Description: From the introduction: “There are many topics in modern psychology about which speculation has been rife for hundreds of years. Much has been written on the powers and dangers of the hypnotic trance, the wonders of telepathy and clairvoyance, the possibility of the interpretation of dreams, the nature and assessment of personality, and the psychology of beauty. These early views, while often amusing, have little value because they are not based on scientific facts. In recent years, much experimental evidence has been collected regarding all these topics, but few reliable accounts have appeared which would acquaint the interested layman with these facts and their possible interpretations and implications. This is what the author has attempted to do in this book, by carefully reviewing and sifting the evidence, by frankly acknowledging ignorance when the facts are still in dispute, and by boldly putting forward a definite point of view where the evidence appears to justify it. Throughout the book emphasis is laid particularly on the detailed discussion of the facts, leaving to the reader the decision as to whether the conclusions drawn are justified.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½").

The Social Psychology of Industry by J. A. C. Brown (£4.00)Publisher: Penguin — 1969Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. Heavy reading creases to the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned. Slightly fragile with age now.Description: From the cover: “In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that the classical approach to industrial psychology is inadequate. This approach regarded the worker primarily as a machine to be studied by the techniques of physiological psychology and as an isolated individual whose aptitudes caused him to be suited or unsuited for a given job. The results obtained are bound to be incomplete because the ‘isolated’ human being is a fiction. Since each individual is a member of society and each worker a member of a working group, the attitudes of these groups are bound to play a large part in influencing his behaviour both as citizen and worker. The author has tried to discuss such fundamental questions as: what is human nature? What causes men to work? What is morale? And what influence has the nature of industrial work upon the mental health of the individual worker and his community?”Notes: Illustrated by Derek Birdsall. Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 309 pages.
