FT BOOK OF THE MONTH 'A wondrous book' - Alain de Botton 'A wholly new perspective to finding balance and success' - Nir Eyal 'I highly reccommend it' - Chief experience officer, Publicis Group and author of How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design for a Digital Age Smash your targets * Annihilate the competition * Choose your battles Have you ever wondered why we use metaphors derived from war and conflict so often at work? What impact does that have on how we conduct business, our culture, our stress levels and ultimately our ability to succeed? For too long war has cast a spell on how we think about business, with negative implications for us, the companies we work in and on the planet. Drawing on the philosophy of Wing Tsun, an ancient Chinese martial art based on the idea that fighting is fundamentally bad, John Vincent and Julian Hitch challenge some of our deepest-held assumptions and show us how to unlearn many ideas and behaviours that are preventing our personal and professional growth. Instead of embracing force as the long accepted route to success, Winning Not Fighting offers as a transformational guide to work and life by inspiring positivity, simplicity and focus. "Unites business and martial arts in a realistic, practical and intelligent way. It's capitalism, but not as we know it." - Benjamin Zephaniah

This unique book reveals the existence of an advanced civilization where none was known before, presenting an entirely new perspective on the culture and history of Tibet. In his groundbreaking study of an epic period in Tibet few people even knew existed, John Vincent Bellezza details the discovery of an ancient people on the most desolate reaches of the Tibetan plateau, revolutionizing our ideas about who Tibetans really are. While many associate Tibet with Buddhism, it was also once a land of warriors and chariots, whose burials included megalithic arrays and golden masks. This first Tibetan civilization, known as Zhang Zhung, was a cosmopolitan one with links extending across Eurasia, bringing it in line with many of the major cultural innovations of the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age. Based on decades of research, The Dawn of Tibet draws on a rich trove of archaeological, textual, and ethnographic materials collected and analyzed by the author. Bellezza describes the vast network of castles, temples, megaliths, necropolises, and rock art established on the highest and now depopulated part of the Tibetan plateau. He relates literary tales of priests and priestesses, horned deities, and the celestial afterlife to the actual archaeological evidence, providing a fascinating perspective on the origins and development of civilization. The story builds to the present by following the colorful culture of the herders of Upper Tibet, an ancient people whose way of life is endangered by modern development. Tracing Bellezza's epic journeys across lands where few Westerners have ventured, this book provides a compelling window into the most inaccessible reaches of Tibet and a civilization that flourished long before Buddhism took root.
Edward Henry Stanley (1826-93) was a prominent British politician and a major landowner. His diaries provide interesting insights into the running of a Lancashire country house and the day-to-day life of a powerful aristocrat, as well as Gladstone's government.
This book contains a selection from the diaries of Edward Henry Stanley, 15th Earl of Derby, from the years between September 1869 and March 1878. The Diaries are a rich source for the politics of the 1870s covering much of the period of opposition to Gladstone's First Ministry and Derby's pivotal role in Disraeli's Second Ministry. This is also a central text for understanding Disraeli's personality and the Eastern Question. Professor Vincent's edition will be widely welcomed by all those interested in Victorian politics.
Chromium exists in nature as complexes of two stable oxidation states - trivalent chromium(III) and hexavalent chromium(VI). Although trivalent chromium is required in trace amounts for sugar and lipid metabolism in humans and its deficiency may cause a disease called chromium deficiency; hexavalent chromium is toxic and carcinogenic. As chromium compounds were used in dyes and paints and the tanning of leather, these compounds are often found in soil and groundwater at abandoned industrial sites, now needing environmental cleanup and remediation.
"The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium: From Biochemistry to Environmental Toxicology" takes a critical look at what the biochemical data indicate about chromium's role in the body and the biological mechanisms of its toxicology. Topics covered include: What do we know about the biochemical roles and mechanisms of chromium?Is chromium an essential element in the mammalian diet?Is chromium(III) effective as a nutraceutical, a therapeutic agent, and as a supplement in animal feed?What is the biochemistry behind the toxicology of chromium(III) and chromium(VI): the mechanisms of metabolism, genetic and epigenetic effects, and disruption of cell signalling?What are the current chromium(VI) policies and positions from regulatory agencies?
"The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium: From Biochemistry to Environmental Toxicology" is an important contribution to the bioinorganic and trace element biochemical fields which will find a place on the bookshelves of bioinorganic chemists, biochemists, inorganic chemists, toxicologists, nutritionists and regulatory affairs professionals.
