Young Continental soldiers carried a heavy burden in the American Revolution. Their experiences of coming of age during the upheavals of war provide a novel perspective on the Revolutionary era, eliciting questions of gender, family life, economic goals, and politics. "Going for a soldier" forced young men to confront profound uncertainty, and even coercion, but also offered them novel opportunities. Although the war imposed obligations on youths, military service promised young men in their teens and early twenties alternate paths forward in life. Continental soldiers’ own youthful expectations about respectable manhood and their goals of economic competence and marriage not only ordered their experience of military service; they also shaped the fighting capacities of George Washington’s army and the course of the war. Becoming Men of Some Consequence examines how young soldiers and officers joined the army, their experiences in the ranks, their relationships with civilians, their choices about quitting long-term military service, and their attempts to rejoin the flow of civilian life after the war. The book recovers young soldiers’ perspectives and stories from military records, wartime letters and journals, and postwar memoirs and pension applications, revealing how revolutionary political ideology intertwined with rational calculations and youthful ambitions. Its focus on soldiers as young men offers a new understanding of the Revolutionary War, showing how these soldiers’ generational struggle for their own independence was a profound force within America’s struggle for its independence.

Evidence-based Interventional Pain Practice
Author: Jan Van Zundert, Jacob Patijn, Craig Hartrick, Arno Lataster, Frank Huygen, Nagy Mekhail, Maarten van Kleef
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Unrelieved chronic pain is a worldwide epidemic Chronic pain has been subject to multiple international initiatives through the World Health Organization. Interventional Pain Medicine, use of minimally invasive techniques to relieve pain, is the best approach when simpler measures such as physical therapy or medications fail. However, these procedures can be associated with significant risk and expense. Establishing uniformity in diagnostic criteria and procedural performance can reduce both morbidity and unnecessary procedures, and hence healthcare expenditures. While other texts explain how to perform these procedures, little focus has been given to diagnostic considerations: if and when these procedures should be performed. Evidence-based Interventional Pain Practice uniquely focuses on how the establishment of an accurate and specific diagnosis relates to the effectiveness of the interventions. It provides the evidence for the use of interventional pain techniques across all areas of chronic pain including: • Head, neck and shoulder pain • Spinal pain • Pain in the joints and extremities • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome • Phantom pain Evidence-based Interventional Pain Practice provides essential knowledge for anyone who uses, or intends to use, interventional pain techniques.

Both scientific research and commercial interest in investigating the role of cell adhesion molecules in complex cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions are growing at a rapid pace. The recent identification and manipulation of an expanding number of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) provide an excellent opportunity for therapeutic and diagnostic interventions in a wide variety of disease processes including acute and chronic inflammatory diseases, vascular remodeling, autoimmune and thrombotic disorders, neurodegenerative complications, bacterial adhesion, angiogenesis and restenosis.
