The Mandibles


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

From Lionel Shriver, the acclaimed author of the National Book Award finalist So Much for That and the international bestseller We Need to Talk About Kevin, comes a striking new novel about family, money, and global economic crisis. The year is 2029, and nothing is as it should be. The very essence of American life, the dollar, is under attack. In a coordinated move by the rest of the world’s governments, the dollar loses all its value. The American President declares that the States will default on all its loans--prices skyrocket, currency becomes essentially worthless, and we watch one family struggle to survive through it all. The Mandibles can count on their inheritance no longer, and each member must come to terms with this in their own way-from the elegant ex-pat author Nollie, in her middle age, returning to the U.S. from Paris after many years abroad, to her precocious teenage nephew Willing, who is the only one to actually understand the crisis, to the brilliant Georgetown economics professor Lowell, who watches his whole vision of the world disintegrate before his eyes. As ever, in her new novel, Shriver draws larger than life characters who illuminate this complicated, ever-changing world. One of our sharpest observers of human nature, Shriver challenges us to think long and hard about the society we live in and what, ultimately, we hold most dear.

Atlas Of Normal Radiographic Anatomy And Anatomic Variants In The Dog And Cat E Book


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Featuring hundreds of high-quality digital images, Atlas of Normal Radiographic Anatomy and Anatomic Variants in the Dog and Cat helps you make accurate diagnoses by identifying the differences between normal and abnormal anatomy. Expert authors Donald E. Thrall and Ian D. Robertson describe a wider range of "normal," as compared to competing books, not only showing standard dogs and cats but non-standard subjects such as overweight and underweight pets plus animals with breed-specific variations. This oversized atlas provides an ideal complement to Thrall's Textbook of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology, the leading veterinary radiography text in the U.S. Use this quick, visual reference for proper technique and interpretation of radiographic images, and you will make accurate diagnoses and achieve successful treatment outcomes. High-quality digital images show anatomic structures with excellent contrast resolution to enable accurate diagnoses. Radiographic images of normal or "standard" prototypical animals are supplemented by images of non-standard subjects exhibiting breed-specific differences, physiologic variants, or common congenital malformations. Brief descriptive text and explanatory legends accompany images, putting concepts into the proper context and ensuring a more complete understanding. Clear labeling of important anatomic structures includes cropped images to emphasize key points, and makes it quicker and easier to recognize unlabeled radiographs. An overview of radiographic technique includes the effects of patient positioning, respiration, and exposure factors. Radiographs of immature patients show the effect of patient age on anatomic appearance. A wide range of "normal" animals is described, to prevent clinical under- and over-diagnosing of clinical patients.
