New Book Announcement –Perspectives in Lung Cancer

Perspectives in Lung Cancer compiles basic and advanced topics on lung cancer pathology and treatment in a single volume. Chapters introduce the reader to chest and lung anatomy followed by the biology of lung cancer. Subsequent chapters delve into diagnostic methods for lung cancer while progressing into treatment options. The book culminates into an explanation of the concept of the Lung Cancer Centre, which is a representation of the editors’ vision for organizing a lung cancer treatment unit.

Key features:

  1. -Organizes key topics covering both standard and avante-garde topics related to lung cancer
  2. -All contributions are presented by experts in lung cancer treatment
  3. -Addresses basic biology of lung cancer
  4. -Provides information about 3D surgical planning, a relatively new concept in the field of thoracic surgery
  5. -Addresses the standard method of resection, VATS and Mini VATS
  6. -Covers the role of radiation and systemic anti-cancer therapies in lung cancer treatment
  7. -Provides a glimpse of modern methods such as image guided surgery and therapy, laser therapy, and photo-dynamic therapy
  8. -Covers the role of palliative care for lung cancer
  9. -Presents information about a visionary organization of a lung cancer unit and treatment centre

The combination of carefully organised chapters covering a wide array of topics make this reference an essential reference for healthcare professionals interested in acquiring a broad perspective on lung cancer treatment with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

New Book Announcement – Changing Landscapes in Urban British Churchyards

Changing Landscapes in Urban British Churchyards

Authors: “Sylvia E. Thornbush”“Mary J. Thornbush”

This interdisciplinary reference work presents a linked consideration, to the reader, of physical-cultural (physicocultural) representations of headstones located in urban churchyards in England and Scotland. The geomorphology of landscapes relevant to these locations is explained with the help of detailed case studies from Oxford and Edinburgh. The integrated physicocultural approach addresses the conservation of the archaeological record and presents a cross-temporal perspective of landscape change – of the headstones as landforms in their landscape (as part of deathscapes). The physical record (of headstones) is examined in the context of both cultural representation and change. In this way, an integrated approach is employed that connects the physical (natural) and cultural (social) records kept by historians and archeologists over the years.

Changing Landscapes in Urban British Churchyards is of interest to geomorphologists, historians and scholars interested in understanding landscaping studies and cultural nuance of specific historical urban sites in England and Scotland. Read out the full version HERE

PREFACE:

The proposed book is a collaborative work between an archaeologist with research expertise in historical archaeology and a geomorphologist with research interests in applied (environmental) geomorphology and landscape change. As an interdisciplinary work, the book provides a linked consideration of physical-cultural (physicocultural) representations of headstones located in urban churchyards in England and Scotland, with detailed case studies from 13 urban churchyards located in six urban centres, including two coastal sites. The integrated physicocultural approach that becomes apparent by the end of the book addresses the conservation of the archaeological record and presents a cross-temporal perspective of headstones as part of deathscapes. The physical record (of headstones) is examined in the context of cultural representation and change. In this way, an integrated approach is employed that connects physical and cultural aspects of the material culture.
