              If Better is Possible EBook (EPUB ebook)

              By Buchanan, John

              John Buchanan is perhaps the most successful cricket coach in history a remarkable achievement given that when he was appointed in October 1999 to replace Geoff Marsh, many people doubted him due his lack of Test level experience. He proved the critics wrong. Along with current c...aptain Ricky Ponting, John has led the Aussie team to unprecedented success, including a worldrecord 16 consecutive Test match victories, Ashes triumphs; the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup in South Africa; a victorious 2004 tour of India; and the team's firstever ICC Champions Trophy, and the recent 2007 ICC World Cup in the West Indies. Prior to coaching Australia, John coached Middlesex in the UK as well as five successful years at the helm of the Queensland Bulls, taking them to two Sheffield Shield titles and two Mercantile Mutual Cup wins. In his first book, he brings his innovative style, his leadership principles and his visionary drive to the wider community.

              In 1945 Japan had to adjust very rapidly to sudden defeat, to the arrival of the American Occupation and to the encounter with the English language, together with a different outlook on many aspects of society and government. This scholarly book is based on in-depth interviews wi...th people, now aged, who were school students at the time of the Occupation and who experienced at first hand this immense cultural change. The book considers the nature of the changing outlook, including democratization, the new role for the Japanese Emperor and all this represented for the place of tradition in Japanese life and the growing emphasis on individualism away from collectivism, discusses the changing system of education itself, including new structures and new textbooks, and relates the feelings of the participants as they came to terms with defeat and the language and culture of the former enemy. Overall, the book provides a fascinating insight into a key period of Japanese history.

              When John Buchanan was appointed to the position of Assistant Haematologist in the Auckland Hospital Laboratory in 1964, the high standard of work and fine spirit of the staff aroused his curiosity about earlier times. This book is the result. It traces the first 50 years of the ...Auckland Hospital Laboratory from the days when a series of parttime pathologists held the fort until Dr Walter Gilmour arrived in 1920. By the 1930s and 40s the demand for laboratory services soon expanded beyond postmortems, histological diagnoses on surgical specimens, and bacteriological testing. Two world wars and leaps in scientific developments meant pathology was expanding into new fields of clinical biochemistry, haematology and serology. By 1950 the laboratory was the academic heart of Auckland Hospital.
