Cellular microbiology is an exciting new area of microbiology research which bridges the gap between microbiology and cell biology. Drawing on their own teaching and research experience, the authors have provided a timely and comprehensive introduction to the molecular and cellular biology of bacterial interactions with host cells, and their relevance to human diseases. Cellular Microbiology introduces the key concepts of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell biology, cell signalling mechanisms and current molecular biological techniques used in cellular microbiology before describing how bacteria interact with host eukaryotic cells during infections and health, and explaining the interactions with the immune system which enable an individual to recover from infections. This book will be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students studying microbiology, virology, pathology, pharmacology and cell biology. It will also be useful for those researchers interested in bacterial infection.

The Conscript - A Novel of Libya's Anticolonial War (Paperback): Gebreyesus Hailu The Conscript - A Novel of Libya's Anticolonial War (Paperback)
Gebreyesus Hailu; Translated by Ghirmai Negash; Introduction by Laura Chrisman
R271 R240 Discovery Miles 2 400 Save R31 (11%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Eloquent and thought-provoking, this classic novel by the Eritrean novelist Gebreyesus Hailu, written in Tigrinya in 1927 and published in 1950, is one of the earliest novels written in an African language and will have a major impact on the reception and critical appraisal of African literature.
The Conscript" depicts, with irony and controlled anger, the staggering experiences of the Eritrean ascari, soldiers conscripted to fight in Libya by the Italian colonial army against the nationalist Libyan forces fighting for their freedom from Italy's colonial rule. Anticipating midcentury thinkers Frantz Fanon and Aime Cesaire, Hailu paints a devastating portrait of Italian colonialism. Some of the most poignant passages of the novel include the awakening of the novel's hero, Tuquabo, to his ironic predicament of being both under colonial rule and the instrument of suppressing the colonized Libyans.
The novel's remarkable descriptions of the battlefield awe the reader with mesmerizing images, both disturbing and tender, of the Libyan landscape--with its vast desert sands, oases, horsemen, foot soldiers, and the brutalities of war--uncannily recalled in the satellite images that were brought to the homes of millions of viewers around the globe in 2011, during the country's uprising against its former leader, Colonel Gaddafi.

Signal Transduction and Human Disease (Hardcover, New): Toren Finkel, J. Silvio Gutkind Signal Transduction and Human Disease (Hardcover, New)
Toren Finkel, J. Silvio Gutkind
R3,768 R2,641 Discovery Miles 26 410 Save R1,127 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

The past few years have witnessed rapid progress in the characterization of mechanisms that underlie the generation and processing of inter- and intracellular signals. While there have been significant corollary advances in the area of signaling in disease processes, there is as yet no single resource that connects these advances with an understanding of disease processes and applications for novel therapeutics. Collecting chapters from the leading experts in their respective fields, editors Toren Finkel and Silvio Gutkind deliver a much-needed introduction to signaling and a fruitful discussion of promising directions for future research.

Signal Transduction and Human Disease capitalizes on the current emphasis on translational research and biological relevance in biotechnology and, conversely, the importance of molecular approaches for clinical research. Each chapter conveys the sense of a disease process, what it affects, how it presents, how common it is, and what the treatments are. Clinical descriptions are not exhaustive but rather serve as an outline regarding the diseaseís manifestations and current treatment options. Following this introduction, the authors present an in-depth discussion of one or two signal transduction pathways or biological processes relevant to the disease. The editors divide their study into five sections:

  • Cardio-Pulmonary Disease
  • Oncology
  • Endocrinology
  • Infectious Disease
  • Allergy/Rheumatology
  • Neurology/Psychiatry

Biochemists, molecular and cell biologists, immunologists, pharmacologists, and clinical researchers, as well as graduate students in a variety of scientific disciplines, will find Signal Transduction and Human Disease to be an invaluable addition to the literature.

There is a striking scarcity of work conducted on rural labour markets in the developing world, particularly in Africa. This book aims to fill this gap by bringing together a group of contributors who boast substantial field experience researching rural wage employment in various developing countries. It provides critical perspectives on mainstream approaches to rural/agrarian development, and analysis of agrarian change and rural transformations from a long-term perspective. This book challenges the notion that rural areas in low- and middle-income countries are dominated by self-employment. It purports that this conventional view is largely due to the application of conceptual frameworks and statistical conventions that are ill-equipped to capture labour market participation. The contributions in this book offer a variety of methodological lessons for the study of rural labour markets, focusing in particular on the use of mixed methods in micro-level field research, and more emphasis on capturing occupation multiplicity. The emphasis on context, history, and specific configurations of power relations affecting rural labour market outcomes are key and reoccurring features of this book. This analysis will help readers think about policy options to improve the quantity and quality of rural wage employment, their impact on the poorest rural people, and their political feasibility in each context.
