Peter Berger

  • Dieses Buch vermittelt wissenschaftlich fundierte Grundlagen personaler und organisationaler Führung. Es bietet realistische Einblicke in die Praxis von Führungskräften und regt zur Reflexion etablierter Führungsleitbilder an.   
    Der Autor geht zunächst der Frage nach, warum sich erwachsene Menschen freiwillig fremden Autoritäten unterwerfen. Er untersucht die notwendigen Grundkompetenzen einer Führungskraft und beleuchtet die organisationalen Dimensionen von Führung. In beiden Bereichen bietet er umfangreiches Basiswissen und realitätsnahe Reflexionsfelder.

  • Qu'est-ce que le réel ? Comment le connaître ? Comment se produit l'articulation entre les faits objectifs et les significations subjectives ? Par quels processus un ensemble de typifications devient-il une réalité socialement établie ? Comment finissons-nous par vivre, au milieu de sociétés plurielles, dans un monde commun ? 
    L'importance et le succès durable de ce livre majeur du constructivisme  tiennent à la place unique qu'il occupe dans l'histoire de la théorie sociale.  L'ouvrage, présenté par D. Martucelli et F. de Singly, s'enrichit d'une introduction inédite qui facilite la compréhension de ce texte exigeant.

  • Surgical and therapeutic use of lasers began in human medicine in the early 1960s. Technology and equipment advanced rapidly. Over the last ten years veterinarians have been exploring the many potential advantages that various lasers provide their patients. Because laser light energy can be applied directly to target tissue or administered to distant lesions at a remote site through fiberoptic components, laser surgery has become an invaluable and growing veterinary surgical resource. Unlike many medical technologies, the size, reliability, and portability of lasers have improved so rapidly that they are now both economically and practically feasible for the general and specialty veterinarian. Routine laser use in veterinary medicine stands poised to gain large-scale general acceptance for everyday routine and specialty procedures.
    Written by experts in the field, Veterinary Laser Surgery: A Practical Guide strives to help general and specialty veterinary practitioners understand, implement and expand the use of laser energy in safe and rational ways for both surgical and therapeutic procedures to further improvement the veterinarians ability to enhance the patient's quality of life.
    PRACTICAL PICTORIAL GUIDE / ATLAS feature that includes 31 case studies of the most common laser surgery procedures. Broad spectrum of specific laser information, including chapters covering basic laser physics through specific laser surgery techniques and pain management.
    Special sections on CO2 and Diode laser wavelengths.
    Provides veterinarians with skills and techniques to improve the comfort and quality of patients' lives through appropriate laser use.
    User-friendly format makes referencing easy.
    A practical reference for specialty and general veterinarians.

  • Written by experienced authors, this book presents numerous natural everyday products with a high range of structural diversity. Twenty natural products have been arranged in five sections, describing three alkaloids, five colored compounds, three carbohydrates and glycosides, seven terpenoids, and two aromatic compounds.
    Adopting a highly didactical approach, each chapter features a uniform structure: Background, in-depth information about isolation processes and structural characterization as well as a Q&A section at the end. Alongside the theoretical information many practical hints for the laboratory work are also included. A comprehensive overview of UV-, IR- and NMR-spectroscopy as well as mass-spectrometry for every exemplified compound is provided and the understanding of these methods is supported by concluding questions and exercises.
    Educating and entertaining, this full-color textbook turns the learning process into a real pleasure, not only for students in natural products chemistry but also experienced professionals.
