Surgery: a case based clinical Review, edited by Christian de Virgilio and Areg Grigorian.

Cover image“The premiere resource to help prepare medical students for the surgical shelf exam and clinical wards. The second edition was conceived after listening to the feedback we received from students. We have added several new chapters and updated the others. This book continues to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of surgical diseases in one easy-to-use reference that combines multiple teaching formats. The book begins using a case based approach. The cases presented cover the diseases most commonly encountered on a surgical rotation. The cases are followed by a series of short questions and answers, designed to provide further understanding of the important aspects of the history, physical examination, differential diagnosis, diagnostic work-up and management, and questions that may arise on surgical rounds and on the shelf exam. The book is written in an easy-to-understand manner to help reinforce important surgical exam concepts. The second edition of Surgery: A Case Based Clinical Review will be of great utility for medical students when they rotate on surgery, as well as interns, physician assistant students, nursing students, and nurse practitioner students.” —

Austria before and after the Anschluss: personal experiences, observations, and comments, by David Lehr.

Austria Before & After the Anschluss

“Dr. Lehr presents an excruciating picture of life during this turbulent period, the horrific cost of racial prejudice, and a final tribute to those Jewish victims and displaced survivors who suffered so much at the hands of their own countrymen. His personal and historical expose has indeed fulfilled his heartfelt sense of responsibility to lay bare the tragic truth of the Austrian Holocaust.” —
