Description : In a concise and readable 16-chapter format, ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY, 7th Edition, incorporates the most effective features of the sixth edition along with the latest and most important research findings from psychological science. Combining extensive pedagogical support with an emphasis on active learning, the text challenges students to learn by doing -- to actively participate and to think about what they are learning rather than just passively read written information. The integrated pedagogical program helps students master the material by supporting the elements of the PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Recite, Review, and Reflect) study system. Douglas Bernstein also shows how topics in psychology are interrelated and guides students in thinking critically -- including organizing select research studies around questions to help readers think objectively about research and results.

Description : This book is a practical guiding manual to explain critical clinical practice in three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. The use of this technology has been limited to certain pioneer imaging units, but with the advent of lower cost hardware it is spreading and reaching more users that will start to use it often without previous experience or formal academic training. This title provides these readers with a full review of the features, clinical indications and methodological aspects of 3D echo in a practical, “how-to-do-it” way. 3D-echocardiography techniques are becoming more diverse, as they are applied to transthoracic and transesophageal studies, 3D-wall motion tracking, fusion of echocardiographic and fluoroscopy navigation, fusion of wall motion tracking and coronary tomography. All these aspects are described and explained deeply in this book.
Description : By 1810, Napoleon reigned supreme over most of continental Europe. But the Iberian Peninsula remained unsubdued, particularly Portugal, which continued to resist. Napoleon ordered Marshal Masséna to crush this resistance with the Army of Portugal. Greatly strengthened, Masséna's army would drive the Portuguese and British into the sea. Facing the French were 60,000 British and Portuguese troops. No-one knew how the Portuguese would perform in battle, but on 27 September 1810, they received their baptism of fire. This title details the gruelling Bussaco campaign as French attempts to subdue Portugal reached their climax.
