View: 1202
Evaluating small animals with neurologic disease necessitates a fundamental understanding of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Both clinicians and students alike can be overwhelmed by the complexity of the nervous system and its many functions. While it is always important to have detailed knowledge of the separate elements of the nervous system, it is most important for those in clinical practice to develop an overall understanding of how these distinct elements are integrated, interrelate, and interreact within the nervous system. Fundamentals of Veterinary Clinical Neurology offers a comprehensive yet practical overview of clinical neurology, providing clinicians and students with the unabridged knowledge they need to examine, diagnose, and treat disorders and diseases of the nervous system. Intended for veterinary students as well as for clinicians who want to refresh their basic understanding of veterinary neurology, Fundamentals of Veterinary Clinical Neurology covers all of the important considerations necessary for clinical evaluation of small animals with neurologic disease. Coverage includes basic concepts of nervous system functioning, clinical examination and problem identification associated with nervous system disease, neuroanatomical diagnosis, differential diagnosis (diseases of the nervous system), diagnostic testing, therapy, and clinical management of common and important neurologic conditions. Equips veterinary clinicians and students in veterinary medicine with the basics of clinical neurology Clear and comprehensive guidance through the nervous system and its functions Written by a leading expert in the field of veterinary neurology

Women on the Line


Author: Miriam Glucksmann aka Ruth Cavendish
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1134023839
Category: Social Science
Page: 232
View: 7388
Women on the Line is a pioneering ethnographic classic of the world of work in a British motor components factory. Miriam Glucksmann (aka Ruth Cavendish), a well-known contributor to the study of gender, work and employment, is for the first time revealed as the author, along with the identity of the company, product and factory. Recording the experience of migrant women from Ireland, the Caribbean, and the Indian subcontinent with the immediacy of a diary, this is a unique account from an observing participant of the daily routines of repetitive work, a strike led by women from below, and the temporalities of work, home, children and leisure. Glucksmann's vivid narrative of life on the assembly line is combined with an analysis of the intersections of gender, ethnicity and class that prefigures subsequent theoretical advances. This edition contains a new introduction situating the book in contemporary debates and developments and includes original photographs taken on the shop floor at the time.
