Lauren Owen: IMG The Other Vampire



It's a wild and thundery night. Inside a ramshackle old manor house, a beautiful young girl lies asleep in bed. At the window, a figure watches... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Traveling around England is in many senses a journey back in time. On all sides, and sometimes even under the road or footpath itself, there are fragments of the ancient past alongside the clutter of the modern world. Medieval villages, castles, ancient churches, and Roman villas are commonplace and take us back to the time of Christ. And far older, yet equally abundant, are the barrows, hillforts, stone circles, camps, standing stones, trackways, and other relics of prehistoric times.

Now, thanks to these three archaeologists--each a specialist in one of the three periods covered by the Guide: prehistoric, Roman, and medieval--readers have the chance to not only explore but to understand in context these fascinating sites and ruins. In addition to reporting on such well-known sites as Stonehenge and Hadrian's Wall, and cities such as London and York--which themselves offer a wealth of archaeological remains--the book also covers smaller, lesser-known sites throughout the country. An introductory section provides background to the monuments, and a reference section provides definitions, further reading, and information about museum collections. Finally, there are 200 photographs, plans, and maps that depict and describe these ancient remains in detail.

Book News Annotation:

Designed for the popular reader, this useful and thorough guide offers descriptions of a comprehensive selection of archaeological sites in England, with directions provided to each. The lengthy (68- page) introduction provides the reader with the history of England from the prehistoric era up to the Reformation, with a focus on the type of archaeology associated with each historic period. Many b&w photos, maps, and drawings are included. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This convenient laboratory manual covers the theory and application o f all the commonly used FISH procedures for both the research and clinical service laboratory. Readers are provided with the theoretical principles which underlie each procedure, and are then guided through the protocols in

a systematic, easy to follow manner. Because FISH procedures are particularly sensitive to background and subtle variations in sample quality, the trouble-shooting sections are invaluable to the beginner interested in developing FISH capabilities in their laboratory. Areas covered include probe

production and labeling; FISH gene mapping; murine, fiber, and RNA FISH; CGH and microchips; 3D FISH; SKY and M-FISH; FISH and microarrays; and FISH in clinical cytogenetics.
