Irish Imbas Books
1

Ireland: 192 A.D. A time of strife and treachery. Political ambition and inter-tribal conflict has set the country on edge, testing the strength of long-established alliances.

Following the massacre of their enemies at the battle of Cnucha, Clann Morna are hungry for power. Elsewhere, a mysterious war party roams the forests of the ‘Great Wild’ and a ruthless magician is intent on murder.

In the secluded valley of Glenn Ceoch, disgraced druid Bodhmhall and her lover, the woman warrior Liath Luachra, have successfully avoided the bloodshed for many years. Now, the arrival of a pregnant refugee threatens the peace they have created together. Run or fight, the odds are overwhelming.

And death stalks on every side.

Based on the ancient Fenian Cycle texts, the bestselling Fionn mac Cumhaill Series by Irish author Brian O’Sullivan is a gritty and authentic retelling of the birth and early adventures of Ireland’s greatest hero, Fionn mac Cumhaill. [SPFBO Finalist 2016]

The Manual of Clinical Oncology, Ninth Edition, published with the International Union Against Cancer (UICC), provides a concise, accessible and feasible reference covering state of art multidisciplinary clinical oncology in order to meet the needs of clinicians caring for cancer patients throughout the world.

Edited by world-renowned practising oncologists and written by key opinion leaders, this book contains authoritative and up-to-date information on cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment alongside topics such as survivorship, special populations and palliative care.

Remodelled and revised for the ninth edition to provide practical information to oncology workers, the UICC Manual of Clinical Oncology is structured in two parts. Part 1 covers general principles of cancer diagnosis and management with additional attention to special settings in oncology, including supportive care and survivorship, and Part 2 covers site-specific multidisciplinary cancer management. The edition includes up-to-date summaries of all treatment modalities (medical, surgical and radiation) for all tumour sites. It also contains the latest TNM classifications outlined in the TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours.

The ninth edition includes:

Practical presentation with bullet points, tables, and flow charts intended to facilitate quick reference for day-to-day clinical practice in busy oncology environments,
Representation of multidisciplinary care for site specific management,
Evidence-based approaches to management, including specific treatment recommendations and investigations guided by clinical practice guidelines,
State of art evidence-based recommendations that take into consideration the lack of availability of certain medications or resources, as well as practice variations, in different and remote regions of the world, and
Contemporary topics on cancer treatment, such as cancer informatics, evidence levels, principles of prognostication, survivorship and cancer in pregnancy.

Oncologists, oncologists-in-training, nurses working with cancer patients and other health professionals responsible for treating and caring for those with cancers will find the UICC Manual of Clinical Oncology an indispensable and comprehensive resource.
