New to metal detecting? Want to start hunting without a long learning curve? This QuickStart Guide is short and to the point, intended to get the reader familiar with metal detectors, their operation and accessories, then into the field to find great stuff. Those who already have a detector and a few accessories can start reading this book over breakfast and be out in the field hunting productively before lunch.

This isn't an exhaustive guide to everything you'll ever want to know about metal detecting. It's not a complete course in treasure hunting. It's a quick but thorough read from a detectorist who's been swinging a machine long enough to know how to do it successfully, but who hasn't forgotten what it feels like to be just beginning and needing a way to start smart.

The 108-page softcover contains everything you need to get out there for a productive hunt:

  • a helpful glossary of terms
  • an overview of the hobby and various specialization options
  • information about equipment, hunting safety and etiquette
  • how and where to find places to hunt
  • cleaning, preserving and displaying your finds
  • a special bonus section contains resources about the hobby
  • nine black & white photographs and illustrations

The handy pocket-sized book is intended to be used, not just read. It has a film-laminated cover, providing greater durability for use in the field, and its 5 x 8 size is easy to fit in your field bag. It retails for $7.95 and readers will find extended information at its website, Detecting101.com.

Paramagnetic transition metal ions provide the opportunity for application of a wide variety of spectroscopic techniques. Although spectroscopic techniques are not as well known as conventional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), they provide detailed information centered on the active site itself. This book describes the application of paramagnetic resonance techniques to a number of important systems in metallobiochemistry. Simultaneously, this volume provides information on novel experimantal methods and theoretical approaches to understanding the structure and function of metalloenzymes and other metallobiomolecules. The specific techniques described include electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, and its derivative techniques, electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) and electron spin echo envelope modulation (ESEEM). These latter two techniques directly probe the nuclear environment of the paramagnetic active site, without interference from magnetically active nuclei that are not involved in the active site. Magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), which links magnetic resonance and oprical spectrospoy, is also described. The application of MCD to problems in metallobiochemistry is growing rapidly, yet uhere are few sources that clearly describe this complex technique. This volume provides several approaches involving MCD. Finally, this book also includes a wide variety of biological systems including heme proteins, iron-sulfur proteins, molybdopterins, manganese proteins, and copper proteins, as well as non-protein biological molecules, such as ribozymes.


Detecting Detection

RRP $62.99

We indulge our fascination with detection in many ways, only some of which occur in the detective story. In fact, modern fiction regularly uses elements of a detective narrative to tell another story altogether, to engage characters, narrators, and readers with questions of identity, with examinations of moral and ethical reasoning, with critiques of social and political injustices, and with the metaphysics of meaning itself. Detective plots cross cultural and national boundaries and occur in different ways and different genres. Taken together, they suggest important contemporary understandings of who and what we are, how and what we aspire to become.

Detecting Detection gathers writing from the UK, North and South America, Europe, and Asia to draw together instances of the detective plot in contemporary fiction. It is unique not only in addressing the theme-a recurring one in modern literature-but in tracking the interest in detectives and detection across international borders.
