Book Summary:

All of human experience flows from bodies that feel, express emotion, and think about what such experiences mean. But is it possible for us, embodied as we are in a particular time and place, to know how people of long ago thought about the body and its experiences? In this groundbreaking book, three leading experts on the Classic Maya (ca. AD 250 to 850) marshal a vast array of evidence from Maya iconography and hieroglyphic writing, as well as archaeological findings, to argue that the Classic Maya developed a coherent approach to the human body that we can recover and understand today. The authors open with a cartography of the Maya body, its parts and their meanings, as depicted in imagery and texts. They go on to explore such issues as how the body was replicated in portraiture; how it experienced the world through ingestion, the senses, and the emotions; how the body experienced war and sacrifice and the pain and sexuality that were intimately bound up in these domains; how words, often heaven-sent, could be embodied; and how bodies could be blurred through spirit possession. From these investigations, the authors convincingly demonstrate that the Maya conceptualized the body in varying roles, as a metaphor of time, as a gendered, sexualized being, in distinct stages of life, as an instrument of honor and dishonor, as a vehicle for communication and consumption, as an exemplification of beauty and ugliness, and as a dancer and song-maker. Their findings open a new avenue for empathetically understanding the ancient Maya as living human beings who experienced the world as we do, through the body.

Book Summary:

Looking down at the familiar, pale and lifeless face floating in the salty waters of the marsh, her blood freezes. It’s a face she hasn’t seen for years, but used to know so well… When Detective Casey White is called to a murder scene in the Outer Banks saltmarshes, she’s devastated to find the strangled body of her ex-husband—father of her missing daughter Hannah. And nearby, an older, unidentifiable body is buried too… but how are these bones linked to her ex? Painful memories flood back as Casey desperately searches his apartment, surrounded by photos of them happy with their little girl. Finding a notepad with the name of the hospital where Hannah was last seen scrawled on it, Casey realizes her ex recently discovered something about their child’s disappearance. But who was trying to silence him? Then forensics show the bones belong to a sweet young nurse who worked at the same hospital. Delving into hospital records, Casey is shocked to learn she once held Hannah as a little baby… Her boss insists she can’t work such a personal investigation, but Casey is in too deep. Interviewing all the staff at the hospital, she’s sure one of the doctors is acting suspiciously… and that night, Casey wakes up barely able to breathe as flames devour her home. Now she’s in the killer’s sights. To finally catch this twisted monster and learn what happened to her stolen girl, Casey will have to risk everything… An absolutely unputdownable thriller that will have you gasping at the twists and turns. Fans of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and Robert Dugoni will be completely addicted. Read what everyone’s saying about B.R. Spangler: “WOW!!!

Book Summary:

Bone Remodeling Process: Mechanics, Biology, and Numerical Modeling provides a literature review. The first part of the book discusses bones in a normal physiological condition, bringing together the involved actors and factors reported over the past two decades, and the second discusses pathological conditions, highlighting the attack vectors of each bone disease. The third part is devoted to the mathematical descriptions of bone remodeling, formulated to develop models able to provide information that is not amenable to direct measurement, while the last part focuses on models using the finite element method in investigating bone biomechanics. This book creates an overall image of the complex communication network established between the diverse remodeling actors, based on overwhelming control evidence revealed over recent years, as well as visualizes the remodeling defects and possible treatments in each case. It also regroups the models allowing readers to analyze and assess bone mechanical and biological properties. This book details the cellular mechanisms allowing the bone to adapt its microarchitecture to the requirements of the human body, which is the main issue in bone biology and presents the evolution of mathematical modeling used in a bone computer simulation. Each chapter covers a core topic in bone biomechanics Provides a multidisciplinary view that effectively links orthopaedics, cellular biology, mechanics, and computer simulation Draws an overall image about bone biology and cell interactions, for identifying cell populations that are crucial for the remodeling process
