"The development of textiles as an art form between 1940 and 1976, and the extent of collaboration between artists and textile manufacturers at this time, is unrivalled in modern art history. Raoul Dufy was the first twentieth-century artist to become seriously and successfully involved in producing textile designs. His work influenced and encouraged many other artists and textile companies in Britain, on the Continent and in America. After the war this movement really flowered with the involvement of leading artists of the day: Picasso, Matisse, Moore, Nicholson, Warhol, Steinberg, to name a few. This book is an important and comprehensive survey of this art form in Britain and America. There are approximately 200 color images, many of which have never been seen before, alongside specially commissioned photography. Major artists featured: Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Henry Moore, Saul Steinberg, Eduardo Paolozzi, Fernand Leger, Ben Nicholson, Andy Warhol." -- Publisher's description.

The surface of a dental part is scanned by a probe, to obtain a digital model of the surface in a dental CAD computer system. In the digital model, first and second boundary lines are defined, above and below a portion in which the scanned data is missing or unsatisfactory. One of the boundary lines may correspond to a margin line between prepared and unprepared portions of the patient's tooth. A transition surface is generated in the computer system, extending between the first and second boundary lines. This improves the representation of the dental part in the digital model, which may subsequently be used for manufacture of a dental restoration.

"The development of textiles as an art form between 1945 and 1970, and the extent of the collaboration between artists and textile manufacturers in Britain at this time, is unrivalled in modern art history. Although there were a number of examples of artists designing manufactured and hand-made fabrics during the late nineteenth century, none really succeeded in the production of 'art for the people'. Even William Morris' strong socialist commitments could not prevent him from producing for a relatively small elite." "Artists' Textiles in Britain 1945-1970 is an important and comprehensive survey of this art form including a review of its roots in Europe and Russia from 1910, summaries of the most significant developments and exhibitions of the three decades post 1945, illustrations of over 100 colour designs of textiles by artists and brief biographies of artists and manufacturers working in this field."--BOOK JACKET.

This article examines the transition of the private medical sector in Britain from a mere appendage to the National Health Service to a significant business sector involving multinational enterprise. The author argues that private medicine continues to be in a state of flux because its degree of independence is limited by its links to the dominant public sector, particularly with regard to staffing, and is still vulnerable to attacks from the opposition parties. Private medicine, despite rapid growth in the late 1970s, is beset by mounting costs and intense competition.
