    Lu Bo

    En août 1937, les tensions entre la Chine et le Japon arrivent au point de rupture à Shanghai, où des affrontements éclatent entre les deux armées. Cette ville internationale devient alors une zone de conflit qui verra des centaines de milliers de soldats se lancer dans une lutte acharnée.
    Très documenté, ce récit revient avec précision sur cette bataille qui préfigure le tristement célèbre massacre qui aura lieux trois mois après à Nankin.

  • En 1279, la Chine est pour la première fois sous la domination des Mongols. La dynastie Yuan, fondée par Kubilai Khan - le petit-fils de Gengis Khan - a en effet assimilé la totalité de l'empire du milieu... sauf la ville de Yamen, située sur le littoral sud, où un dernier bastion de l'ancienne dynastie Song lui résiste encore. Une des plus grandes batailles navales de l'Histoire s'apprête à avoir lieu...

  • Little Yu t.1

    ,

    La petite Yu quitte la ville pour vivre à la campagne avec ses parents. Confrontée à une nature préservée et mystérieuse, elle va découvrir tout un monde poétique, plein de nouvelles amitiés et d'aventures incroyables.
    Little Yu présente un touchant morceau d'enfance qui oscille entre le rêve et la réalité, et dont la lecture est aussi apaisante que l'ombre d'un arbre par un après-midi d'été.

  • This book is a comparative study of the critical factors in berth productivity in Chinese and South Korean container terminals. It first defines the concept of berth productivity, and then establishes a regression model to evaluate the productivity factor. With the results obtained for the leading Asian container terminals it identifies the relationship between critical factors for berth productivity and their order of importance. The findings provide guidelines for terminal operators to improve berth productivity.

  • This book helps to solve the problem of substantial waste and inefficiency in port production by analyzing operational efficiency at more than 30 Chinese and Korean leading container ports using three types of DEA model. In addition it offers a returns-to-scale analysis, which is particularly useful for port managers or policy makers deciding on the scale of production. The results provide port managers and relevant scholars with insights into resource allocation and operating performance optimization. This book was supported by the National Science and Technology Academic Publications Fund of China in 2015.

  • This book introduces the diagnosis of Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs), including newly emerging infectious diseases and also infectious diseases that show resistance to present treatments. Radiographic examinations are of great value in EIDs diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment efficacy assessment and prognosis evaluation. This book covers severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), human avian influenza (H5N1, H7N9), influenza A (H1N1), hand-foot-mouth disease, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), viral hepatitis, pulmonary tuberculosis. All seven of these EIDs are associated with high incidence and mortality. This book details the imaging techniques, radiological appearance and characteristics of EIDs, and diagnosis and differential diagnosis of EID-related complications. Considering the unique and in some cases only partially understood nature of EIDs, appropriate space is provided in this book for the detailed explanation of the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory tests, clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and prognosis of EIDs. As such, it will be a valuable resource for improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of EIDs.Editors Pu-Xuan Lu and Bo-Ping Zhou are professors at Shenzhen Third People's Hospital, Guangdong Medical College, China.

  • This book introduces the basic concepts, synthesis techniques, and applications of vertically-oriented graphene. The authors detail emerging applications of vertically-oriented graphene such as field emitters, atmospheric nanoscale corona discharges, gas sensors and biosensors, supercapacitors, lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells (catalyst supports) and electrochemical transducers. They offer a perspective on current challenges to enabling commercial applications of vertically-oriented graphene.
