The author of "Melanin" is a scientist who has penned widely read scientific books, that have been published in several countries. The success of those works has been the clear and engaging writing style, which up to now has been enjoyed only by the very limited professional audience for whom they were written. Under the pen name "Carlos Suarez", the author has now entered the field of pure entertainment. "Melanin" is a short, action novel. It combines the explosive topics of racial tensions and attempted genocide, developing in a series of highly realistic settings that include among others, the inner workings of a medical school, and the luxury Caribbean villa of a business tycoon. The other work, brought out by the same publisher, is "Erotic fantasies". That one is for adults only. A collection of 20 short stories, spicy and explicit, but tastefully written.

Cattle, Priests, and Progress in Medicine was first published in 1978. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. The author shows that over the centuries many of the most significant breakthroughs in improving humans health have been closely associated with observations and experiments on animals other than man. Because human medical progress has been so dependent on veterinary studies, he urges that schools of veterinary medicine assume a much greater role in the training of persons for research in human medicine. To illuminate the historical link between animals and man in medical progress, Professor Schwabe recounts highlights in the history of medicine from ancient times onward. He describes the early history of man in terms of animal cultures, focusing on the prehistoric Nile Valley, and points to similarities in medical knowledge between present-day "cattle" societies in Northeastern Africa and the ancient people of the Nile. He discusses the comparative healers of ancient Egypt, the comparative foundations of Greek medicine, the Arabic contribution, Sicily and the beginnings of modern medicine, and subsequent developments through the Renaissance .Bringing the history down to modern times, Professor Schwabe emphasizes the role of veterinary medicine in medical research. He outlines specific reforms in the curricula of schools and colleges of veterinary medicine which would provide for the education of medical investigators.
The Debate over Unconventional Monetary Policy
Author: Gene Park,Saori N. Katada,Giacomo Chiozza,Yoshiko Kojo
Publisher: Cornell University Press
Category: Political Science
Bolder economic policy could have addressed the persistent bouts of deflation in post-bubble Japan, write Gene Park, Saori N. Katada, Giacomo Chiozza, and Yoshiko Kojo in Taming Japan's Deflation. Despite warnings from economists, intense political pressure, and well-articulated unconventional policy options to address this problem, Japan's central bank, the Bank of Japan (BOJ), resisted taking the bold actions that the authors believe would have significantly helped. With Prime Minister Abe Shinzo's return to power, Japan finally shifted course at the start of 2013 with the launch of Abenomics—an economic agenda to reflate the economy—and Abe's appointment of new leadership at the BOJ. As Taming Japan's Deflation shows, the BOJ's resistance to experimenting with bolder policy stemmed from entrenched policy ideas that were hostile to activist monetary policy. The authors explain how these policy ideas evolved over the course of the BOJ's long history and gained dominance because of the closed nature of the broader policy network. The explanatory power of policy ideas and networks suggests a basic inadequacy in the dominant framework for analysis of the politics of monetary policy derived from the literature on central bank independence. This approach privileges the interaction between political principals and their supposed agents, central bankers; but Taming Japan's Deflation shows clearly that central bankers' views, shaped by ideas and institutions, can be decisive in determining monetary policy. Through a combination of institutional analysis, quantitative empirical tests, in-depth case studies, and structured comparison of Japan with other countries, the authors show that, ultimately, the decision to adopt aggressive monetary policy depends largely on the bankers' established policy ideas and policy network.

So you're a practicing veterinarian, with a mind filled with the science of veterinary medicine. But there's a business side to veterinary medicine you were not taught in school, and it is relevant at every stage of your career. Just starting out? This book is essential to transitioning from your training to "the real world." It offers practical advice on crossing that bridge, including key ways to establish good citizenship in your new environment and guidance for building your own practice.

Not to mention guidance on career longevity, planning for retirement, and increasing your net worth. This book truly is a business manual for your entire career in veterinary medicine.
