Who were the scientific geniuses behind some of the most innovative and important discoveries in modern medicine? Medical science in the 21st century is continuing to advance, but the character of that advancement is now governed by research teams and committees. Yet in the 19th century – a century when there were many great individual discoveries in medicine – the contributions of four individuals in particular accelerated developments in each of the main branches of medicine. This medical history by Thomas Dormandy focuses on these four individuals and their "moments of truth" - Laennec, a French physician; Semmelweis, a Hungarian obstetrician; Lister, a Scottish surgeon; and Walter Reed, an American army pathologist. They are not well known, compared with their contemporaries in other walks of life, yet their moments of truth transformed the lives of millions. Thomas Dormandy is a retired consultant pathologist (MD, PhD, DSc, FRCS, FRCPath). He is the author of over 300 scientific papers and two books aimed at a general readership, The White Death: A History of Turberculosis , which was short listed for the Aventis prize and RMS book of the month, and Old Masters, a work of art history.

The current financial and sovereign debt crisis of the European Union and the United States can be regarded as the most recent of a wave of financial and sovereign debt crises that have affected different regions of the world over the past quarter century. While there is a large and growing body of literature on the economic aspects of financial crises, its political elements remain surprisingly under-studied. Moments of Truth: The Politics of Financial Crises in Comparative Perspective fills this gap in the literature by looking at the political repercussions and policy implications of financial crises in comparative perspective, using case studies in Latin America, Korea, and Russia, as well as the contemporary crises in the US and in key European countries. Contributors to this volume look at the crises as critical junctures that generate high levels of uncertainty while calling for decisive action. The chapters emphasize structural or agency based explanations and give relevance to the role of ideas, interests, and institutions in explaining different outcomes. The questions addressed by the case studies include: how the crises were defined by key actors, the range of political and policy options available to deal with their impact, the role of ideas in policy shifts, how political and economic actors redefine their interests in contexts of uncertainty, how political institutions mediate reactions to the crises, what explains the choice of a certain option over other alternatives, and whether the crisis has (so far) resulted in significant political and policy changes or in incremental adjustments to the status quo. The first book to comparatively analyze the political dimensions of financial crises across different global regions, Moments of Truth will be highly significant for any scholars interested in the contemporary debate on financial crises.

From his childhood in the borderlands of what is now Pakistan, to his position today as the foremost teacher of acting – guru of acting – in India, the saga of Shri Roshan Taneja is not only the story of this remarkable man, but of India herself – vision, grit, struggle, and a never ending search for perfection. From his 13 years of teaching at the Film Institute of India, Pune, to today, the list of Taneja-sahib's students reads like a list of honour – Shatrughan Sinha, Jaya Bhaduri, Naveen Nischal, Rehana Sultan, Danny, Shabana Azmi, Mithun Chakraborti, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri – these are only a few of his students from the Film Institute; when he shifted to Bombay, he guided such fine actors as Anil Kapoor, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgun, Govinda,Tina Munim, and so many others. Roshan Taneja speaks of all of these artistes in rich, personal terms – but he also speaks of his struggle in the Hindi-film industry – including doing an impromptu improvisation with Meena Kumari – and, above all, his sojourn to the USA in the early 50's to pursue his dream of learning acting, a dream he pursues even today.

The authors argue that a paradigm shift is needed with regard to brand management. Many companies and organizations have seen brand management as a narrow marketing activity and this has resulted in weak brands. By contrast they argue for a holistic approach to branding with the brand at the centre of a value-based approach and the focal point of business strategy. They show how to develop brand strategy and brand engagement as part of a brand-centric organization.
