About FELIX MARCHAND (from Wikipedia): ****** Felix Jacob Marchand (22 October 1846 - 4 February 1928) was a German Pathologist born in Halle an der Saale. He studied medicine in Berlin, and later became an assistant at the Pathological Institute in Halle. In 1881 he became a Professor of Pathological Anatomy in Giessen, and two years later garnered the same position at Marburg. In 1900 he succeeded Pathologist Felix Victor Birch-Hirschfeld (1842-1899) at the University of Leipzig. In 1904 Marchand was credited with coining the term Atherosclerosis from the Greek "athero", meaning gruel, and "sclerosis", meaning hardening, to describe the fatty substance inside a hardened artery. His name is lent to the eponymous "Marchand's Adrenals", which is theaccessory adrenal tissue in the broad ligament of the uterus. Among his written works is a 1915 textbook on pathology that he co-authored with Ludolf von Krehl (1861-1937), called "Handbuch der allgemeinen Pathologie".******

From the introductory Summary: "The history of the Three Gorges is long and complex, and it is one of the founts of ancient Chinese culture... The relative isolation of the Three Gorges due to complexity of terrain and difficulty of communications ensured a comparative absence of major upheval and calamity during the historical period. As a result. the region enjoyed extended periods of stable development, and moreover, was blessed with unusually favorable conditions for the preservation of cultural relics. According to the surveys carried out coordinate with the Three Gorges Dam Project there are over eight hundred localities with cultural relics below ground that will be either submerged or otherwise affected by the reservoir. These remains buried below the surface consist mostly of sites and tombs spanning a range from the Palaeolithic to the Ming and Qing periods. The sites are highly diverse in nature and include examples of settlements belonging to agricultural and fishing communities, walled towns and regional centres of administration, industrial sites such as salt wells and kilns, ancestral temples and other centres of religious activity, staging posts and trade routes, and defensive structures and fortified passes at strategic locations. The tombs are no less varied in date and form..." INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book will require additional shipping charges.
