Primary and secondary school teachers will find here a book filled with practical suggestions from a wide range of subject-specialist viewpoints. These highlight opportunities for developing economic and industrial understanding (EIU) and economic awareness through work in the other cross-curricular areas, through the National Curriculum core and foundation subjects and through other areas of study. Whatever the shape of the National Curriculum in years to come, this book and its companion volumes provide – for heads and deputies, teachers engaged in curriculum coordination and delivery, school inspectors, advisers, initial teacher trainers, INSET providers and those in the community – a wealth of ideas to embed cross-curricular issues into the whole school and its curriculum.
In 1675, when the English hold on New England was still fragile, one Indian, King Philip, organized the seperate Algonquin tribes into one powerful, military force with a single objective - to drive the English settlers back into the sea. King Philip's War almost did just that.
For a year Algonquin forces terrorized English settlements. Out of ninety New England towns, fifty-two felt the ferocity of the Algonquin attack. Twelve were completely destroyed before the English regained the upper hand. To the settlers, King Philip represented all that was despicable about the Indians. They considered him a wicked savage, a devilish scoundrel.
But to himself, he wasn't even King Philip.
He was -
Metacomet - sachem of the Algonquin. But he did agree with the English on one thing. This was his war.

Starting by introducing concepts of modern immunology, the clinical applications of immunotherapy are then discussed. The reader will learn about the three broad classes of immune therapeutic agents: cell-based treatment; antibody therapy; cytokine application and the key effector cells and mechanisms which might cause tumour rejection. The reverse side of this equation, the genetic and molecular mechanisms which the tumour can use to escape immune control and regulation, is also discussed. Through reviewing the most up-to-date evidence, this volume provides an overview of the important scientific lessons learned from past failure of immunotherapeutics in the clinic and highlights more positive recent data, coupled to practical guidelines for clinical usage.
