BOOK EXCERPT:

From Lionel Shriver, the acclaimed author of the National Book Award finalist So Much for That and the international bestseller We Need to Talk About Kevin, comes a striking new novel about family, money, and global economic crisis. The year is 2029, and nothing is as it should be. The very essence of American life, the dollar, is under attack. In a coordinated move by the rest of the world’s governments, the dollar loses all its value. The American President declares that the States will default on all its loans--prices skyrocket, currency becomes essentially worthless, and we watch one family struggle to survive through it all. The Mandibles can count on their inheritance no longer, and each member must come to terms with this in their own way-from the elegant ex-pat author Nollie, in her middle age, returning to the U.S. from Paris after many years abroad, to her precocious teenage nephew Willing, who is the only one to actually understand the crisis, to the brilliant Georgetown economics professor Lowell, who watches his whole vision of the world disintegrate before his eyes. As ever, in her new novel, Shriver draws larger than life characters who illuminate this complicated, ever-changing world. One of our sharpest observers of human nature, Shriver challenges us to think long and hard about the society we live in and what, ultimately, we hold most dear.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The only book to deal comprehensively with insect feeding was published by C. T. Brues in 1946. His Insect Dietary was an account of insect feeding habits. Since that time there has been a revolution in biology, and almost all aspects of our understanding of insect feeding have expanded to an extent and into areas that would have been unthinkable in Brues' day. Yet, our book does not replace Insect Dietary but, instead, complements it, because our aim is to bring together information on the mechanisms by which food quality and quantity are regulated. We deliberately focus attention on the feeding process; to include food-finding would have required a much larger book and would have moved the focus away from more proximate mechanisms. This book is dedicated to the late Vincent G. Dethier. As a pioneer in studying the physiological basis of animal behavior, he focused on regulation of feeding in flies and caterpillars. His work on the blowfly, together with that by his many students and co-workers, still provides the most completely described mechanism of insect feeding. The citation of his work in almost every chapter in this book illustrates the importance of his findings and ideas to our current understanding of regulation of insect feeding. The authors in this book provide many innovative and stimulating ideas typifying Dethier's approach to the study of feeding be havior.

This volume covers the remainder of the primitive weevils (Division Orthoceri), namely the families Brentidae, Eurhynchidae and Apionidae. It catalogues 43 genera and 173 species and features almost 2000 individual drawings and black-and-white photographs. These illustrations are augmented by 270 full-colour habitus photographs in Volumes V and VI. The volume also includes an important chapter on the Immature Stages of Australian Curculionoidea by Brenda May, New Zealand, which describes the larval and pupal stages of 158 species of Australian weevils and features overviews of larval characters and their nomenclature as well as of rearing and preservation techniques applicable to weevil larvae. More than half the drawings in the volume accompany this chapter.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Featuring hundreds of high-quality digital images, Atlas of Normal Radiographic Anatomy and Anatomic Variants in the Dog and Cat helps you make accurate diagnoses by identifying the differences between normal and abnormal anatomy. Expert authors Donald E. Thrall and Ian D. Robertson describe a wider range of "normal," as compared to competing books, not only showing standard dogs and cats but non-standard subjects such as overweight and underweight pets plus animals with breed-specific variations. This oversized atlas provides an ideal complement to Thrall's Textbook of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology, the leading veterinary radiography text in the U.S. Use this quick, visual reference for proper technique and interpretation of radiographic images, and you will make accurate diagnoses and achieve successful treatment outcomes. High-quality digital images show anatomic structures with excellent contrast resolution to enable accurate diagnoses. Radiographic images of normal or "standard" prototypical animals are supplemented by images of non-standard subjects exhibiting breed-specific differences, physiologic variants, or common congenital malformations. Brief descriptive text and explanatory legends accompany images, putting concepts into the proper context and ensuring a more complete understanding. Clear labeling of important anatomic structures includes cropped images to emphasize key points, and makes it quicker and easier to recognize unlabeled radiographs. An overview of radiographic technique includes the effects of patient positioning, respiration, and exposure factors. Radiographs of immature patients show the effect of patient age on anatomic appearance. A wide range of "normal" animals is described, to prevent clinical under- and over-diagnosing of clinical patients.
