• « Le développement de Cézanne » est aujourd'hui réédité dans sa langue d'origine. Il s'agit d'un article paru en français dans la revue «L'amour de l'art» en 1926. Roger Fry y explore le lent passage qui s'opère chez le peintre à partir de sa rencontre avec Pissarro, son aîné, son maître, son « cher Pissarro ». Les deux peintres vont travailler côte à côte pendant quelques saisons à Auvers-sur-Oise, et cette relation aura un effet réel sur le peintre provençal pour la suite de son parcours. De l'inspiration romantique et héroïque des débuts, il restera peu de traces après une très lente évolution qui le conduira à se retirer en Provence.

  • Surgical Education: Theorising an Emerging Domain delineates surgical (as opposed to medical) education as a new and emerging field of academic enquiry. This reflects profound changes in healthcare training and practice on an international basis. As such, this book introduces, examines and explores the contribution of selected concepts and theories to surgical learning and practice. The first four chapters consider core facets of surgical education, such as simulation, while subsequent chapters take a key idea, often well known in another field, and examine its relevance to surgical education.

    Of course, performing invasive procedures is no longer the exclusive preserve of `traditional' surgeons. Boundaries between surgery and the interventional specialties (radiology, cardiology, intensive care) are becoming increasingly blurred, especially as technology continues to expand. Changing work patterns and explosive technological development mark this out as a major growth area. New educational approaches (e.g. the use of simulation) are emerging. And all clinical practice is a team activity, where clinicians from many specialties (medicine, nursing, allied professions) come together with shared goals. For all the above groups, and their patients, education (teaching, training, learning and assessment) is of crucial importance.

    Yet the unique characteristics of surgical education have not previously been addressed from an educational perspective, nor have its possibilities as a new research domain been mapped. The domain needs to be theorised and its epistemological foundations established. There is thus both a need and a market for a definitive work in this area, aimed at surgeons, other clinicians, non-clinicians, educators, and others interested in this new domain.

  • Recent developments in biology and nanotechnology have stimulated a rapidly growing interest in the mechanics of thin, flexible ribbons and Mobius bands.This edited volume contains English translations of four seminal papers on this topic, all originally written in German; of these, Michael A. Sadowsky published the first in 1929, followed by two others in 1930, and Walter Wunderlich published the last in 1962.The volume also contains invited, peer-reviewed, original research articles on related topics.Previously published in the Journal of Elasticity, Volume 119, Issue 1-2, 2015.
