The emergence of the terms ‘pink tax’ and ‘tampon tax’ in everyday language suggests that women, who already suffer from an economic disadvantage due to the gender wage gap, are put in an even more detrimental position by means of ‘discriminatory consumption taxes’. This book is the first conducting a legal analysis to establish to what extent this public perception is accurate. Does the practice of ‘pink tax’ effectively amount to a tax in the legal sense? Does the so-called ‘tampon tax’ genuinely constitute an anomaly within the general consumption tax system? Most importantly, can these two ‘taxes’ be legally qualified as discriminatory? This book provides scientific answers to these questions. It first cuts through the existent information clutter by elucidating the pertinent economic, sociological and psychological components of the practices referred to as ‘pink tax’ and ‘tampon tax’. It then proceeds with a thorough legal analysis of all relevant aspects to determine whether women are indeed subject to discriminatory consumption taxes. It is well-established that women earn less than men. This book investigates if they simultaneously pay more due to ‘discriminatory consumption taxes’.

Flesh and Bone offers the reader a solid background in forensic anthropology by out-lining some of the methods and procedures that best define the discipline. It introduces readers to the rapidly growing area known as forensic science, providing a comprehensive look at many of the participants in the field. Nafte avoids technical terminology whenever possible and includes updated photographs, charts, and illustrations to complement the text. The book evolves sequentially, beginning with a discussion of all things forensic, the broad field of anthropology, and the process of death, decomposition, and skeletonization. Chapter four is a photographic overview and description of the entire human skeleton for reference, followed by a variety of methods of identifying human remains, DNA analysis, and the reconstruction of biological identity. The final chapter deals with the modern application of forensic anthropology to human rights missions. This second edition will feature many new photos as well as updated information on DNA databases, electronics in the lab, and police services.

Human Osteology, Second Edition is designed for students and professionals who wish to advance their osteological skills in terms of accurately identifying human skeletal remains, however isolated and fragmentary. These remains can then be used to deduce information about the original lives of the deceased individuals. This book will continue to be an essential text for courses on the human skeleton, as well as a basic reference and field manual for professional osteologists and anatomists, forensic scientists, paleontologists, and archaeologists. Human Osteology, Second Edition includes nearly a decade of advances in osteological research since the first edition. Each chapter has been strengthened and updated, including a new chapter on molecular osteology and four new case studies drawn from more recent research. This edition also includes a valuable guide to electronic resources in osteology. Key Features * Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of exceptional photographs and drawings specifically designed to show a maximum amount of anatomical information * Based on nearly 25 years of teaching human osteology * Skeletal parts shown life-size for ease of study and use * Four new case studies emphasize the correct and positive identification of human bones and teeth, which is fundamental in paleontology, archaeology, and forensic science

Mit dem Blick auf die Feinstrukturen werden die Innenräume der Zellen und ihre Architekturen in der höheren Organisation der Gewebe lebendig. Die Autoren geben mit diesem Atlas der funktionellen Ultrastruktur Einblick in die komplexe zelluläre Innenwelt mit ihren vielgestaltigen Funktionsräumen, sowie in dynamische Funktionsabläufe, die für die Erfüllung der zellulären Aufgaben im Gewebe notwendig sind. Das besondere Anliegen besteht darin, dem Leser bewusst zu machen, dass es sich hier um diejenigen Strukturen handelt, in denen sich grundlegende zelluläre Lebensvorgänge und krankmachende Mechanismen abspielen. An Hand elektronenmikroskopischer Bilder, ergänzt durch Immunelektronenmikroskopie und ausführlicher Beschreibung werden in den Zellen die Beziehungen zwischen Strukturen und Funktionen aufgerollt, Details herausgearbeitet und die Organisation in den Zellverbänden der Gewebe präsentiert. Das Buch wendet sich an Medizin- und Naturwissenschaftsstudenten, Ärzte, Biologen, Zell- und Molekularbiologen.
