by A. Berthoz The publication of this volume, edited by Adriano Ferrari and Giovanni Cioni, is a major event for several reasons. Most importantly, it concerns an area of child pathology that has yet to be fully explored. In this context, the authors’ efforts to compile their observations as well as those of other clinicians and to elaborate their theories have resulted in an ess- tial step in the field of cerebral palsy (CP). The originality of the book is its very clear focus, while at the same time the authors have encouraged the book’s contributors to express their ideas and personal opinions. This leads sometimes to redundancy, but this is precisely one of the benefits of the book - cause the same problems are then exposed from different points of views. The reader is thus spared the normative attempts of many other pathology books, in which the compl- ity of a given disease is hidden by the authors’ or editors’ desire to impose a rigid taxo- my or epidemiology.
This new text is aimed at allied health professionals, nurses and students, helping them to make the links between health promotion theory and practice.

Addressing the pathology of the heart and cardiovascular system from a forensic perspective, Pathology of the Heart and Sudden Death in Forensic Investigations guides the pathologist toward the effective resolution of cases. It critically reviews pertinent facts by revisiting pathologic findings and comparing them to etiopathogenic hypotheses, proposing new ones substantiated by previously misinterpreted or ignored facts. It also presents recent findings on pediatric pathology. The book describes the basic functional anatomy of the heart, combining views on examination from clinical and pathological perspectives. It systematically examines patho-physiologic changes and specific heart diseases and emphasizes the benefits of communication between forensic specialists and clinicians in determining cause of death. The book also assists the forensic pathologist in the presentation and interpretation of the sequence of events in a court of law. Containing 150 color photographs that demonstrate forensic aspects of cardiopathology, the book offers a single source of pertinent information that is essential for every forensic pathologist to have when investigating a case.

To talk about nurse caring and to support the idea that a good nursing coincides with caring, it is necessary to develop an argumentation process able to show how caring is a complex activity, that requires "thinking, emotions and competence". Nurses who care for patients provide, in their every day practice, ethically and meaningful actions that are able to convey a sincere concern about patients. If the science of nursing corresponds to the science of caring, nursing research should explore the meaning of care to grasp what a good practice of nursing is. This book reports the findings of a theoretical and empirical research on caring in nursing starting since 2007, based on 240 narratives on caring written down by nurses working in different care settings. The research question that guided the whole investigation process was the following: what does good caring in nursing consist of? Gestures and thoughts of caring. A theory of caring from the voices of nurses is organised into five chapters. In the first two chapters we outline the general features of care in terms of eidos; this analysis may not meet reality in its tangible materiality, but eidos delineates, as its essential structure, a type of phenomena that concretely embodies care. Chapters three and four are dedicated to describe the empirical research process and the descriptive theory of a good practice of care mentioned by nurses involved in the research. Finally, in the last chapter we summarise the results of a literature's systematic review with the purpose of comparing the different methodological approaches to the study of caring and of comparing our research findings with those of previous studies on nurses' perceptions of caring.

When Agatha, who happens to be the PR person for the company, finds the council chairman murdered at the basin of the spring, tongues start wagging. Could one of the council members have silenced the chairman before he could cast the deciding vote? It is up to Agatha, still nursing a bruised heart, to investigate the councillors, solve the crime - and promote the water company in the face of all this scandal!
