Techniques in Protein Chemistry III compiles papers presented at the Fifth Protein Society Symposium in Baltimore on June 22-26, 1991. This book discusses the protein and peptide recovery from PVDF membranes; high-sensitivity peptide mapping utilizing reversed-phase microbore and microcolumn liquid chromatography; and capillary electrophoresis for preparation of peptides and direct determination of amino acids. The TFMSA/TFA cleavage in t-Boc peptide synthesis; applications of automatic PTC amino acid analysis; and identification of O-glycosylation sites with a gas phase sequencer are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the conformational stability of the molten globule of cytochrome c and role of aqueous solvation in protein folding. This publication is useful to students and researchers interested in methods and research approaches on protein chemistry.

This volume provides practicing clinicians and researchers with an update on treatments found to be effective in pediatric psychology as well as those that are emerging in the field and have promise of being proven effective as additional research is conducted. Several chapters contain descriptions of different treatment protocols as well as specific scripts for certain procedures. These materials will be useful to clinicians in their day-to-day practice and clinical researchers in implementing and/or developing research protocols. Leading pediatric psychology intervention researchers generously provide details of their treatments for a number of pediatric problems. This book provides a means by which treatment manuals and related data on the outcomes of interventions can be disseminated to practicing pediatric psychologists and to investigators. Readers can gain access to treatment protocols developed by leading pediatric psychology researchers at a website specifically developed for this book. Readers may use these manuals in clinical work or contact the manual developers if interested in using/adapting the manuals for research protocols. This website will be updated with additional treatment manuals for problems encountered in the practice of pediatric psychology.
Stanislavski’s ‘system’ has dominated actor-training in the West since his writings were first translated into English in the 1920s and 30s. His systematic attempt to outline a psycho-physical technique for acting single-handedly revolutionized standards of acting in the theatre. Until now, readers and students have had to contend with inaccurate, misleading and difficult-to-read English-language versions. Some of the mistranslations have resulted in profound distortions in the way his system has been interpreted and taught. At last, Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski’s huge manual into a lively, fascinating and accurate text in English. He has remained faithful to the author's original intentions, putting the two books previously known as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character back together into one volume, and in a colloquial and readable style for today's actors. The result is a major contribution to the theatre, and a service to one of the great innovators of the twentieth century.
