Anti-semitism in the 21st century : the resurgence ( visu )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 212 libraries worldwide
Today, parts of the world are experiencing a dramatic resurgence of anti-Semitism--from hate propaganda to vandalism to attacks on Jews themselves. Reports from research groups indicate a major increase in anti-Semitic incidents since the year 2000, with the worldwide annual average number of major violent incidents nearly doubling from 1990s levels. It is particularly severe in Western Europe, where research shows that since the year 2000, Muslim and Arab youths were increasingly responsbile for attacks against Jews and Jewish properties. Meanwhile outside of Europe, in more and more Arab and Islamic communities around the world, there is an alarming increase in anti-Semitic rhetoric in the political and public arenas, espceially in the mainstream media. What is fueling the rise in anti-Semitism in the Islamc and Arab worlds today? What real threats does it pose? And how can history help us better understand what is happening?

"[This film] looks back at the all but vanished Jewish way of life that existed in eastern Europe before World War II.

Narrated by Elliot Gould, the film explores everything from the fascinating language of Yiddish to the style of dress and more
Surgical talk : lecture notes in undergraduate surgery by Andrew Goldberg( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
This textbook is an introduction and guide to undergraduate surgery. It has been a bestseller since its first edition in 2001. The philosophy of this book is to focus on the level of knowledge and the approach that would be expected of the better students reaching the end of their undergraduate training. Avoiding a book that is too cumbersome, we have tried to make this book readable and enjoyable as well as using various techniques to help the reader remember key facts. In addition to general surgery, the book contains sections on trauma, orthopaedics, urology and ENT making it the only comprehensive textbook for medical students wishing to learn top tips in surgery. Subjects that are poorly covered in all the main texts are dealt with in a tutorial fashion in this book, such as fluid balance management and minor surgical procedures and there is a section on how to problem solve even in the context of areas unknown to the student. This book is useful for medical students and also for junior doctors during their day to day working lives as well as those coming up to postgraduate exams. The text has been deliberately written in a tutorial-like story format as opposed to a set of lists, since this makes it easier to understand and remember. Each chapter is written by an authoritative author alongside the book editors who have ensured it remains in the spirit of the bestselling previous editions

Surgical talk : surgery for finals by Andrew Goldberg( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
As finals approach, medical students often become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of knowledge required to pass all subjects in one go, including surgery, medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, pharmacology and psychiatry. Clearly the students cannot know each of these subjects in as much detail as they did during their individual attachments and they need to concentrate on important topics rather than minutiae. Whereas existing textbooks cover many topics very well and in great detail, they are lengthy and difficult to read in a short space of time; also some subjects are poorly covered and giv

The chosen pariah : anti-semitism in the 21st century by Andrew Goldberg( visu )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This documentary discusses the 21st century resurgence of anti-Semitism worldwide, as is evident from hate-propaganda to vandalism, to attacks on Jews themselves. Examines also the history and origins of anti-Semitism, including comments from scholars and selected archival footage of historical events, pertinent to the discussion. Reports from western watch groups such as the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia, indicate a dramatic increase in anti-Semitic incidents since the year 2000, especially in Europe. There, the annual average number of such incidents has more than doubled since the 1990s. Research shows that since the year 2000, an increasing number of anti-Semitic acts in parts of Europe, particularly in France and England, are being committed by Muslim and Arab youths who live there. While in more and more Muslim communities around the world, there is an alarming increase in anti-Semitic rhetoric in the political and public arenas, especially in the mainstream media. Looks at the reason behind the rise in anti-Semitism in the Islamic world today, and the real threats it poses; and how history can help with the better understand of what is happening
An implementation of a combinatorial approximation algorithm for minimum-cost multicommodity flow by Andrew Goldberg( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The minimum-cost multicommodity flow problem involves simultaneously shipping multiple commodities through a single network so that the total flow obeys arc capacity constraints and has minimum cost. Multicommodity flow problems can be expressed as linear programs, and most theoretical and practical algorithms use linear-programming algorithms specialized for the problems' structures. Combinatorial approximation algorithms in [GK95, KP95b, PST95] yield flows with costs slightly larger than the minimum cost and use capacities slightly larger than the given capacities. Theoretically, the running times of these algorithms are much less than that of linear-programming-based algorithms. We combine and modify the theoretical ideas in these approximation algorithms to yield a fast, practical implementation solving the minimum-cost multicommodity flow problem. Experimentally, the algorithm solved our problem instances (to 1% accuracy) two to three orders of magnitude faster than the linear-programming package CPLEX [CPL95] and the linear-programming based multicommodity flow program PPRN [CN96]."
