Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, andresearch into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analyticalapproaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed-from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Cytopathology provides a wide-ranging overview of the microscopic study of normal and abnormal cells, showing how current visualization methods are used to study cell structure, and how early detection of abnormal cell pathology can lead to timely clinical interventions.

Es ist nicht immer einfach, einen Neuling in die Grundlagen der pathologischen Histologie einzuführen. Im deutschen Studienplan ist zu diesem Zweck ein eigenes Praktikum vorgesehen, bei dem der Student mit dem Objekt, dem histologi schen Präparat, unmittelbar in Berührung kommt. Leider ist es heute, da Semesterkurse mit 150 bis 200 Hörern an der Tagesordnung sind, nicht mehr möglich, den Studierenden eine eigene Präparatesammlung in die Hand zu geben: Wollte man nämlich jedem Studierenden bloß 150 Präparate mitgeben, so würde das pro Jahr die Herstellung von 2 x 200 X 150, das heißt 60000 Präparaten bedeuten. Dazu fehlt heute Zeit, Geld und vor allem Personal. Außerdem weiß man aus Erfahrung, daß diese Präparate zwar nach der Ablegung des Examens fein säuberlich aufgehoben, aber kaum je mehr angesehen werden - ich selbst schließe mich bei dieser Feststellung nicht aus. Trotzdem wäre es aber gut, wenn jene charakteristischen histologischen Bilder, deren Grundzüge der Studierende im Praktikum kennengelernt hat, auch weiter vor seinem geistigen Auge lebendig blieben und sich evtl. nach den Bedürfnissen des Tages erweiterten und vermehrten. Hier kann nun das vorliegende Werk einspringen, indem es Erinnerungen wachhält und in der einmal erlernten Sprache der pathologischen Histologie neue Bilder beibringt und erläutert. Kein Buch, keine noch so naturgetreue Abbildung wird zwar jemals die Anschauung eines Präparates unter dem Mikroskop ersetzen können, aber unter allen den möglichen Behelfen erscheint der vorliegende Atlas als der beste Ersatz für das Präparat.

The science of transfusion and transplantation demands a multifaceted understanding of immunology, haematology, and genetics from the biomedical scientist. Transfusion and Transplantation Science coherently synthesises the essential concepts of these subjects and presents them within the practical framework of the hospital banking and transplantation centre, thereby furnishing the reader with the knowledge and skills required to specialize in thisdiscipline. Beginning with an overview of potential immune responses to transfusion and transplantation, the text goes on to explain the aetiology behind these responses with a view tothe prediction, diagnosis, and mitigation of adverse effects on the patient. It then outlines issues of quality, but also regulatory and legal concerns, that need to be considered when collecting, preparing, and storing products for transfusion or transplantation.

Die Autoren haben beabsichtigt, diejenigen Gebiete der medizinischen Mikrobiologie kurz, exakt und in ihrem gegenwärtigen Stand darzustellen, die für die Infektionskrankheiten und ihre Chemotherapie von besonderer Bedeutung sind. Das Buch wendet sich in erster Linie an Medizinstudenten, außerdem an alle Ärzte in Krankenhaus und Praxis. Die Notwendigkeit für ein klares Verständnis der mlkrobiologischen Grundtatsachen ist in den letzten Jahren stärker geworden, da in Biochemie, Virologie und Chemotherapie so wie auf weiteren, die Medizin beeinflussenden Gebieten bedeutende Entwicklungen statt gefunden haben. Ein wesendicher Teil dieses Lehrbuches ist deswegen der Darstellung der Grundlagen gewidmet, wodurch sich das Buch auch für die Einführung des Studenten in den mikrobiologischen Kurs als brauchbar erweisen wird. Für die neue Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über Virus und Krebs neu geschrieben, und das Kapitel über antimikrobielle Chemotherapie wurde von Grund auf neu bearbeitet. Die Autoren freuen sich, bei dem Erscheinen der 7. amerikanischen Ausgabe von einer spanischen, deutschen, italienischen und griechischen Ausgabe, sowie von der Vorbereitung für eine serbokroatische Übersetzung berichten zu können. Die Autoren möchten nochmals allen danken, die ihnen bei der Bearbeitung dieser Auf lage behilflich waren, und die es ihnen durch ihre Kommentare und ihre Kritik ermöglicht haben, die in 2jährigen Abständen erscheinenden Revisionen dieses Buches auf dem neu esten Stand zu halten.

Managen beleuchtet den vielleicht wichtigsten Job, den es gibt. Seine Dynamik, seine Vielfalt, seine Rätsel und wie Manager ihn effektiv und gut beherrschen. Managen ist eine dynamische Tätigkeit, kein statische Wissenschaft. Mintzberg zeigt, dass Manager vielfach als überlegte und systematische Planer idealisiert werden und diesem Anspruch gar nicht gerecht werden können. Er skizziert Management als dynamischen Prozess. Mintzberg gilt als Enfant terrible unter den Managementvordenkern. Eine seiner Thesen: Management und Leadership sind Bestandteile des gleichen Jobs. Manager, die keine Leader sind, sind langweilig. Und Leader, die nicht managen, wissen nichts vom Geschäft. Die Trennung von Management und Leadership ist Unsinn. Mintzberg fordert auf zu einer längst überfälligen Diskussion über modernes Management: Wie kann man managen, wenn verlässliche Daten fehlen. Wie kann man eine Balance herstellen zwischen notwendiger Veränderung und Kontinuität? Wie kann man Dinge durchdenken, wenn die Zeit dazu fehlt? Effektive Manager sind nicht frei von Fehler, aber sie treffen die in der jeweiligen Situation bestmöglichen Entscheidungen.
