Abstract

Praise for the First Edition "This book is easy to read and has many informative illustrations…I would strongly recommend this book to those interested in a broad introduction to the care and use of laboratory guinea pigs as well as to laboratory animal technicians, managers, veterinarians and scientists who do not have direct access to large, well organized animal resource units with extensive library facilities." —John D. Young, Contemporary Topics The Laboratory Guinea Pig provides a compact and well- illustrated introduction to research on the guinea pig. The second edition of this popular handbook facilitates quick reference to the behavioral and physical traits of the guinea pig, as well as practical information on its unique anatomical and biological features. Numerous tables and color illustrations help the reader identify features of anatomy and understand health issues and care requirements. Supplying a stepwise introduction to common laboratory techniques, the new edition of this trusted reference provides guidance that supports the humane care and use of guinea pigs in the laboratory setting.

Abstract

This volume deals with the children’s socialization on the Trobriands. After a survey of ethnographic studies on childhood, the book zooms in on indigenous ideas of conception and birth-giving, the children’s early development, their integration into playgroups, their games and their education within their `own little community’ until they reach the age of seven years. During this time children enjoy much autonomy and independence. Attempts of parental education are confined to a minimum. However, parents use subtle means to raise their children. Educational ideologies are manifest in narratives and in speeches addressed to children. They provide guidelines for their integration into the Trobrianders’ “balanced society” which is characterized by cooperation and competition. It does not allow individual accumulation of wealth – surplus property gained has to be redistributed – but it values the fame acquired by individuals in competitive rituals. Fame is not regarded as threatening the balance of their society.

Abstract

El presente libro versa sobre el papel de la Iglesia católica y sus misiones en los Imperios ibéricos del siglo xix y el primer tercio del siglo xx. En concreto, aborda las relaciones entre el poder civil y el eclesiástico en contextos coloniales en un período de intensa modernización de las estructuras imperiales. Con una perspectiva comparada entre los distintos espacios que componían los diferentes imperios, la obra refleja el papel que desempeñan los misioneros como un cuerpo intermedio entre colonizadores y colonizados, siempre en contacto e interacción con las poblaciones locales, así como la compleja relación entre el poder colonial y las misiones religiosas. El indudable apoyo mutuo partía de intereses que eran en parte divergentes, lo cual provocó conflictos en no pocas ocasiones. Todo ello en el marco de una relación Iglesia-Estado que, en las mismas metrópolis, no careció de importantes roces y dificultades.
