Mollison's Blood Transfusion in Clinical Medicine is an icon in the field of transfusion and the first edition was published in 1951. The book arose from the concept of the transfusionist, as both scientist and expert consultant. For many years, this text has provided the primary, and often the sole, reference for detailed information and practical experience in blood transfusion. The book is completely revised and updated throughout to include the latest advances and developments in the field.
Described as "captivating" by "The New York Times" and "unforgettable" by "TIME," "James and Other Apes" was first published in 2004 in a large format to critical and popular acclaim and is now re-published in this new compact edition. It features fifty close-up portraits of gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans, and bonobos, shot in the manner of human passport photographs. The images are so strong and the featured apes-all named, with personal histories-are so personable that the viewer cannot fail to relate to them. Includes a moving introduction by the world's leading ape expert and campaigner, Dr. Jane Goodall.
Now in its 10th edition, Blood Transfusion in Clinical Medicine remains the gold standard of blood transfusion and its application in clinical medicine. Beautifully produced and written with great clarity, the reviews, reputation and longevity of this book speak for themselves.
