Skies of Parchment, Seas of Ink: Jewish Illuminated Manuscripts

The love of books in the Jewish tradition extends back over many centuries, and the ways of interpreting those books are as myriad as the traditions themselves. Skies of Parchment, Seas of Ink offers the first full survey of Jewish illuminated manuscripts, ranging from their origins in the Middle Ages to the present day. Featuring some of the most beautiful examples of Jewish art of all time―including hand-illustrated versions of the Bible, the Haggadah, the prayer book, marriage documents, and other beloved Jewish texts―the book introduces readers to the history of these manuscripts and their interpretation.

Edited by Marc Michael Epstein with contributions from leading experts, this sumptuous volume features a lively and informative text, showing how Jewish aesthetic tastes and iconography overlapped with and diverged from those of Christianity, Islam, and other traditions. Featured manuscripts were commissioned by Jews and produced by Jews and non-Jews over many centuries, and represent Eastern and Western perspectives and the views of both pietistic and liberal communities across the Diaspora, including Europe, Israel, the Middle East, and Africa.

Magnificently illustrated with pages from hundreds of manuscripts, many previously unpublished or rarely seen, Skies of Parchment, Seas of Ink offers surprising new perspectives on Jewish life, presenting the books of the People of the Book as never before.

Words and the Mind: How words capture human experience
The study of word meanings promises important insights into the nature of the human mind by revealing what people find to be most cognitively significant in their experience. However, as we learn more about the semantics of various languages, we are faced with an interesting problem. Different languages seem to be telling us different stories about the mind. For example, important distinctions made in one language are not necessarily made in others. What are we to make of these cross-linguistic differences? How do they arise? Are they created by purely linguistic processes operating over the course of language evolution? Or do they reflect fundamental differences in thought? In this sea of differences, are there any semantic universals? Which categories might be given by the genes, which by culture, and which by language? And what might the cross-linguistic similarities and differences contribute to our understanding of conceptual and linguistic development? The kinds of mapping principles, structures, and processes that link language and non-linguistic knowledge must accommodate not just one language but the rich diversity that has been uncovered.

The integration of knowledge and methodologies necessary for real progress in answering these questions has happened only recently, as experimental approaches have been applied to the cross-linguistic study of word meaning. In Words and the Mind, Barbara Malt and Phillip Wolff present evidence from the leading researchers who are carrying out this empirical work on topics as diverse as spatial relations, events, emotion terms, motion events, objects, body-part terms, causation, color categories, and relational categories. By bringing them together, Malt and Wolff highlight some of the most exciting cross-linguistic and cross-cultural work on the language-thought interface, from a broad array of fields including linguistics, anthropology, cognitive and developmental psychology, and cognitive neuropsychology. Their results provide some answers to these questions and new perspectives on the issues surrounding them.

Current Concepts in Diagnosis & Management of Arrhythmias in Infants & Children
This book is a "reader friendly" resource which will provide a ready reference for diagnosis and management of both simple and complex cardiac rhythm disorders in infants and children. It will be beneficial not only for the specialists in pediatric cardiology but also for those specialists in pediatrics, internal medicine, adult cardiology, critical care and emergency medicine.

The chapters on benign arrhythmias, syncope, long QT syndrome and pharmacological therapy will be of particular interest to the generalist. The specialist will find most helpful, the discussion of the newer managements of cardiac arrhythmias including radiofrequency catheter ablation and device therapy.

Because the book is organized as a self-teaching tool, it is replete with electrocardiographic and electrophysiological tracings and, as such, will be advantageous to the students of this discipline. The chapters are authored by many authorities in the field of cardiac arrhythmias in children. This book provides a consolidated knowledge base with balanced discussion of methods of investigation and treatment from a diverse authorship which enhances objectivity and reduces institutional bias.

This concise, single volume is a convenient, comprehensive resource for physicians and healthcare workers at all levels.
