              A feminine meditation on death and absence: the absence of the heroine's husband Paul, of the intense life of her childhood in wartime Russia, and her youth in Moscow, of friends and family who have vanished behind the tundra of the Gulag, of parents who loved her.

              This carefully-designed textbook offers a brand-new approach to learning neuroanatomy for medical students and newly-qualified doctors, particularly those considering a career in neurology and neurosurgery. Promoting active learning and taking inspiration from other popular case-...based formats, readers are encouraged to overcome their inherent 'neurophobia'. The accessible text and practical examples, unencumbered by esoteric minutiae, support students and trainees in developing the necessary skills that will be essential in later clinical practice. Developed specifically in response to student feedback, the authors have succeeded in creating a novel, brief, and high-yield primer that offers a unique approach to mastering this challenging discipline. Case Closed! Neuroanatomy not only teaches students how to localize, but also guides them to solve successfully the problems that will reappear in their exams and in the clinic.

              'Language is a body, a living creature ...and this creature's home is the inarticulate as well as the articulate'. John Berger's work has revolutionized the way we understand visual language. In this new book he writes about language itself, and how it relates to thought, art, so...ng, storytelling and political discourse today. Also containing Berger's own drawings, notes, memories and reflections on everything from Albert Camus to global capitalism, Confabulations takes us to what is 'true, essential and urgent'.

              The workbook format is exactly what is missing from the current selections of neuroanatomy texts. It has been developed in response to student feedback specifically to address Neurophobia the term, coined by multiple international studies, used to describe the attitude of first y...ear medical students toward neuroanatomy. Neuroanatomical localization remains the most poorly developed skill in medical school, and neurophobia extends well into clinical practice. The skill of localizing neuroanatomically needs repeated practice if the student is to become proficient, yet most texts merely present neuroanatomy, complicate it with esoteric minutia, and occasionally demonstrate the skill of localization through limited examples. This passive form of learning is inefficient and frustrating. Case Closed! Neuroanatomy promotes active learning by taking inspiration from other popular case-based formats. The authors have succeeded in developing a brief, high yield primer that teaches students how to localize, challenges them to develop their thinking via cleverly designed and beautifully illustrated cases, and allows them to solve the problems that will reappear in their exams.
