|The Demon Under the Microscope: From Battlefield Hospitals to Nazi Labs, One Doctor's Heroic Search for the World's First Miracle Drug
Lowest new price: $9.99
Lowest used price: $4.44
List price: $15.00
Author: Thomas Hager
In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of sulfa, the first antibiotic and the drug that shaped modern medicine.
The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. Sulfa saved millions of lives—among them those of Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jr.—but its real effects are even more far reaching. Sulfa changed the way new drugs were developed, approved, and sold; transformed the way doctors treated patients; and ushered in the era of modern medicine. The very concept that chemicals created in a lab could cure disease revolutionized medicine, taking it from the treatment of symptoms and discomfort to the eradication of the root cause of illness.
A strange and colorful story, The Demon Under the Microscope illuminates the vivid characters, corporate strategy, individual idealism, careful planning, lucky breaks, cynicism, heroism, greed, hard work, and the central (though mistaken) idea that brought sulfa to the world. This is a fascinating scientific tale with all the excitement and intrigue of a great suspense novel.

|Superbugs: An Arms Race against Bacteria
Lowest new price: $24.99
List price: $24.99
Author: William Hall
Antibiotics are powerful drugs that can prevent and treat infections, but they are becoming less effective as a result of drug resistance. Resistance develops because the bacteria that antibiotics target can evolve ways to defend themselves against these drugs. When antibiotics fail, there is very little else to prevent an infection from spreading.
Unnecessary use of antibiotics in both humans and animals accelerates the evolution of drug-resistant bacteria, with potentially catastrophic personal and global consequences. Our best defenses against infectious disease could cease to work, surgical procedures would become deadly, and we might return to a world where even small cuts are life-threatening. The problem of drug resistance already kills over one million people across the world every year and has huge economic costs. Without action, this problem will become significantly worse.
Following from their work on the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, William Hall, Anthony McDonnell, and Jim O'Neill outline the major systematic failures that have led to this growing crisis. They also provide a set of solutions to tackle these global issues that governments, industry, and public health specialists can adopt.
|Modern Potting Composts: A Manual on the Preparation and Use of Growing Media for Pot Plants
Lowest new price: $128.62
Lowest used price: $41.00
List price: $29.95
Author: A.C. Bunt
The materials used in the preparation of composts for pot plants are changing rapidly. This book explains their nature and use as part of a range of new growing systems. Mineral soils, which formed the basis of the John Innes type of compost, are increasingly scare and expensive, and growers are having to deal with radically different materials such as plastic foam and shredded bark. Together with improved technology, these represent new systems of growing, and not simply changes of compost.The new materials give results which are equal or even superior to those obtained by traditional means, providing their individual characteristics and requirements are understood. They are likely to be used with new types of fertilizers, new methods of heat sterilization and chemical sterilizing agents. They are part of systems which rely increasingly on a technology of growing that has been subject to extensive change and development during the past two decades- glasshouses designed to give maximum light transmission, automatic heating and ventialating systems, carbon dioxide enrichment of the atmosphere, controlled photo periods enabling certain plants to flower at any time of the year, mist propagation techniques, chemical growth regulators, automatic watering and feeding systems... and these are only part of the story.Much of the information is based on previously unpublished studies made by the author at the Glasshouse Crops Research Institute. He also draws on his experience at the John Innes Institute and on the results of experimental work carried out in many countries, in particular the U.S.A., The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and West Germany.The book is written for the professional horticulturist, and a pre-publication review suggests that it is likely to be regarded as 'the nurseryman's Bible and the research and experimental worker's source book.' It is the only authoritative, up t date, book-length treatment of the subject in English.

|Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America: A Field-to-kitchen Guide
Lowest new price: $26.69
Lowest used price: $12.20
List price: $39.95
Author: David W. Fischer
Unusual shapes and colors make many mushrooms alluring to the eye, while the exotic flavors and textures of edible mushrooms are a gourmet delicacy for the palate. Yet many people never venture beyond the supermarket offerings, fearing that all other mushrooms are poisonous.
With amateur mushroom hunters especially in mind, David Fischer and Alan Bessette have prepared Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America. This field guide presents more than 100 species of the most delicious mushrooms, along with detailed information on how to find, gather, store, and prepare them for the table. More than 70 savory recipes, ranging from soups and salads to casseroles, canapes, quiches, and even a dessert, are included.
Throughout, the authors constantly emphasize the need for correct identification of species for safe eating. Each species is described in detailed, nontechnical language, accompanied by a list of key identifying characteristics that reliably rule out all but the target species. Superb color photographs also aid in identification. Poisonous "lookalikes" are described and illustrated, and the authors also assess the risks of allergic or idiosyncratic reactions to edible species and the possibilities of chemical or bacterial contamination.

|Staphylococcus: Genetics and Physiology
Lowest new price: $159.50
Lowest used price: $262.96
List price: $319.00
In the twenty first century, the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus continues to be a global threat to human and animal health. There is currently no vaccine for preventing S. aureus infections and the bacterium has developed resistance to many, if not most, antibiotics, hence the therapeutic options are rapidly disappearing. The genetic and physiological flexibility that allows this commensal bacterium to become a powerful pathogen and elucidating the myriad of mechanisms it employs to avoid the host and/or antimicrobials are important areas of research.
This book brings together respected S. aureus experts from around the world to provide a timely overview of staphylococcal research. Topics covered include: medical significance; genetic variation; virulence factors; metabolism; proteomics; cell wall assembly; antibiotic resistance; genetic regulation; and immune response.
Essential reading for scientists working with staphylococci. This text is an excellent introduction for entry level scientists, as well as those seeking a deeper understanding of this critically important bacterial pathogen.
