  • « Je suis dans ce métier depuis quarante-deux ans, et mon seul désir c'est de partager ce plaisir de recevoir, comme celui d'aimer connaître d'autres saveurs pour toujours se faire plaisir comme faire plaisir à ceux que l'on reçoit. »

  • Ce deuxième livre de cuisine est composé de recettes aussi simples qu'élaborées. Le plaisir est une chose à laquelle on ne prête plus attention, mais vous allez voir que cela en vaut la peine. L'envie de faire plaisir sera plus grande encore. Et vous allez même susciter l'envie dans ce domaine. Qui n'a pas déjà essayé de réaliser différentes recettes, même si ces dernières sont des recettes dites traditionnelles ? Ce livre est fait pour vous !

  • Le dossier « Détournement, imposture, falsification » de ce numéro 117 nous amène sur les pentes glissantes de l'art : quand il joue avec le faux. À l'image de la revue Adbusters dont Inter détourne le couvert, cette édition est riche d'éléments visuels, d'illustrations grand format et de montages graphiques. Sous la direction de Michaël La Chance, douze auteurs se sont commis sur ce thème : Brad Jersak rapproche les coups d'éclat des Pussy Riots et la scène de Jésus au Temple, Édith Brunette présente les Yes Men, qui transforment en farces les plus grands sommets politiques et économiques, Lina X. Aguirre fait un tour d'horizon de l'art piraté au Chili et Jonathan Lamy relate la suite et la fin de « l'affaire Dulac », entre autres. Hors dossier, une incursion dans le monde fascinant de Boris Nieslony et une rencontre avec Aapo Korkeaja.

    Atlas of Upper Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato Biliary Surgery covers in detail the technical aspects of all important procedures of the upper abdomen (esophagus, duodenum, stomach, liver, biliary system, pancreas, portal hypertension and spleen) including general, oncologic and transplantation surgery. Each chapter has been written by an expert renowned in his or her field and been reviewed by a second expert. All of the approximately 900 illustrations have been drawn by the same team of three artists of notable experience. The liver section follows the internationally accepted terminology of the Brisbane 2000 conference of the IHPBA. In this atlas experts of upper abdominal surgery share their experience and show how they do it -- step by step.

  • The first edition of this book was judged by many to be the best available atlas of upper gastrointestinal and hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery. The second edition builds upon this success by covering all of the significant intervening developments, including both new procedures and adaptations of established techniques. The atlas opens with an introductory section on the basic principles of operative surgery. All of the important surgical techniques are then presented in a series of sections devoted to the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum, the liver, the biliary system, portal hypertension, the pancreas, and the spleen. General, oncologic, and transplantation surgical procedures are described step by step with the aid of more than 900 superb illustrations drawn by a team of artists with extensive experience. The contributors were selected on the basis of their extensive experience in the procedures discussed and most are established educators.

  • Despite accurate preoperative assessment and adequate preparation, unexpected, and sometimes disastrous, situations can occur during vascular and endovascular procedures.
    This latest book in the European Vascular Course series provides vascular and endovascular surgeons with the skills and techniques needed to solve these unforeseen intraoperative complications.
    It includes thirteen chapters on aortic neck problems during open and endovascular repair, ruptured clamp sites, ureteral lesions, unintentional covering of side branches, totally calcified aorta and embolization. Accidental conditions during carotid and lower limb revascularization are also covered in six chapters and additional challenges are described in another seven chapters.

  • An all star cast of academic experts offer an important and timely analysis of the pursuit of autonomy. They argue that it is key to move beyond the primarily normative debate about the rights or wrongs of autonomous regions on the basis of cultural concerns, instead focusing on understanding what makes autonomy function successfully.

  • This book describes the latest research on nanopolysaccharides in the development of functional materials, from their preparation, properties and functional modifications to the architecture of diverse functional materials. Polysaccharide-based nanoparticles, including nanocellulose, nanochitin, and nanostarch have attracted interest in the field of nanoscience, nanotechnology, and materials science that encompasses various industrial sectors, such as biomedicine, catalyst, coating, energy, optical materials, environmental materials, construction materials, and antibacterial materials. 
    This book establishes a fundamental framework, highlighting the architecture strategies of typical functional systems based on nanopolysaccharides and integrated analysis of their significant influence and properties to various functional behaviors of materials, to help readers to fully understand the fundamental features of nanopolysaccharides and functional materials. Addressing the potential for practical applications, the book also covers the related industrial interests and reports on highly valued products from nanopolysaccharides, providing ideas for future studies in the area. Intended both for academics and professionals who are interested in nanopolysaccharides, it is also a valuable resource for postgraduate students, researchers, and engineers involved in R&D of natural polymers, nanotechnology, and functional materials.
