Hand and Wrist Anatomy and Biomechanics: A Comprehensive Guide

$79.99 - $75.78

(as of Feb 11,2019 10:50:37 UTC – Details)

Overall, this is a very good book. The authors do an excellent job of presenting the relevant anatomy and tying it into kinematics and function.Doody’s Reviews (starred review)

There is a saying that “hand surgery without a tourniquet is like repairing a clock in a barrel full of dark ink.” Operating without a sound fundamental knowledge of anatomy can be compared to “stirring around in the soup.” Classic anatomy instruction covers only a fraction of the area of hand surgery: bones, muscles/ligaments, vessels, and nerves. The many different connective-tissue structures are often only briefly highlighted. The complex interaction of the various structures remains a mystery to most. This book presents the specialty of applied anatomy and is intended for medical professionals involved with the hand and its functionality: hand surgeons, trauma specialists, orthopaedists, plastic surgeons, occupational therapists, and physio-therapists.

Key Features:

  • Almost 150 illustrations, anatomical drawings, and photos of anatomy in vivo.
  • Part 1 deals with the anatomy and functional anatomy of the hand
  • Part 2 is dedicated to the surface anatomy of the structures of the forearm, wrist, and hand

The Time-Bearer (The Hirt)


(as of Feb 03,2019 13:22:19 UTC – Details)

Hey. Heather Marks here. Uh, they told me to write a short description to convince you all to read this, so here I am. I don’t really know what to say other than an annoyingly beautiful man with an army the size of Las Vegas is trying to take over the world by brainwashing everyone and we’re trying to stop him from doing that. But, see, we only have four random teenagers, one crusty old man, one girl who just wants revenge on her boyfriend, and me; a pathetically weak and sarcastic human being who was given just, like, way too much power. So, you see our problem. We wrote this to convince you all to come help us, you know, save the world or whatever. So go ahead and give this a read. Hopefully, we’ll see you soon.

Kept Secret: The Half-Truth in Nonfiction

$29.95 - $22.46

(as of Dec 03,2018 14:28:03 UTC – Details)

Creative nonfiction writers wrestle constantly with the boundaries of creative license—what to reveal, when to reveal it, and how best to do it. While the truth may inspire us to make confident assertions, secrets, lies, and half-truths inspire us to delve further into our own writing to discover the heart of the story. The pieces in this collection feature essayists who do this type of detective work. Each essay contains a secret, lie, or half-truth—some of these are revealed by the author, but others remain buried. Ranging from the deep family secret to the little white lie, from the shocking to the humorous, and from the straightforward revelation to the slanted half-truth, these essays ask us to appreciate the magnitude of keeping a secret. They also ask us to consider the obstacles writers must overcome if they want to write about secrets in their own lives and the lives of others. In short interviews following each essay the contributors discuss craft, ethics, creativity, and how they eventually decided to reveal—or not reveal—a secret.

Zoned in the USA: The Origins and Implications of American Land-Use Regulation


(as of Nov 25,2018 03:48:06 UTC – Details)

Why are American cities, suburbs, and towns so distinct? Compared to European cities, those in the United States are characterized by lower densities and greater distances; neat, geometric layouts; an abundance of green space; a greater level of social segregation reflected in space; and―perhaps most noticeably―a greater share of individual, single-family detached housing. In Zoned in the USA, Sonia A. Hirt argues that zoning laws are among the important but understudied reasons for the cross-continental differences.Hirt shows that rather than being imported from Europe, U.S. municipal zoning law was in fact an institution that quickly developed its own, distinctly American profile. A distinct spatial culture of individualism―founded on an ideal of separate, single-family residences apart from the dirt and turmoil of industrial and agricultural production―has driven much of municipal regulation, defined land-use, and, ultimately, shaped American life. Hirt explores municipal zoning from a comparative and international perspective, drawing on archival resources and contemporary land-use laws from England, Germany, France, Australia, Russia, Canada, and Japan to challenge assumptions about American cities and the laws that guide them.
