Description:
Academic Press, 2014. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Editor Komoda's research handbook for physicians and medical scientists addresses in detail the biochemistry and pathophysiology of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. The history of HDL research is summarized in the introduction, including its labeling as "good cholesterol" and recent questions problematizing that label. The ensuing chapters discuss apolipoprotein A-1 mutations, diversity of high-density lipoproteins, reverse cholesterol transport, ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 and G1, sphingolipids, lecithin and cholesterol acyltransferase, cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitors, apoprotein mimetic peptides, oxidized HDL, paraoxonase-1, and use of proteomics techniques in HDL research. Molecular biology of the discussed targets is linked to clinical outcomes and epidemiology. (2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Description:
Langaa Research & Publishing, 2015. Paperback. New Book. Paperback. Fossungu, a native of Cameroon living in Canada, challenges Africans to "look at truth in the eye." Fossungu covers wide ground here, from the drinking practices of individuals of various nationalities to the politics of the Cameroon Goodwill Association of Montreal (CGAM), the activities of the Higher School of Four-Eyeism (HISOFE), to African unity. His arguments weave serious issues with a jocular, circumlocutionary style in which he uses invented words such as "biggeytitleism," "expibasketical," and "politickerizing," to make his points. Fossungu, ultimately, has an optimistic view of Africa's future and African unity. Distributed in North America by the African Books Collective. (2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Routledge, 2015. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Researchers in public health describe the scale up of HIV prevention and management during the past decade, and the potential that the effort will recede as other crises overtake the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the attention of the public and policymakers. Among the topics are community labor and the narrowing of care during Mozambique's HIV scale-up, HIV scale-up and the contemporary politics of knowledge in global public health, understanding and validating measures of governments; political commitment to HIV, who can sustain the HIV/AIDS response in Peru and how after the Global Fund, and assessing Namibia's human resource strategies in the context of decreased HIV/AIDS funding. The 15 studies were originally published in Global Public Health vol. 9, nos. 1-2 (January-February 2014). (2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Routledge, 2012. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Authors Boylan (economics, National U. of Ireland) and O'Gorman (philosophy, National U. of Ireland) address the economic methodology of Frank Hahn, a British economist. Hahn, famous for his criticism of the topic (he considered it essentially fruitless), nevertheless also developed a prescriptive approach to theorizing about the role and status of economic theorizing and economic theory. In what they say is the first book length study of Hahn's views and thinking on methodology, the authors explore two primary questions: what is distinctive about economic theorizing?; and what is the cognitive value of its results? The authors also discuss other elements of Hahn's work. (2012 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
