With an Introduction by Kathryn White. "He saw her wounded, and bleeding to death; saw her ashy countenance, and her wasting eyes ... turned piteously on himself, as if imploring him to save her from the fate that was dragging her to the grave..." Ann Radcliffe, author of 'The Romance of the Forest' and 'The Mysteries of Udolpho', is the high priestess of the gothic novel. In THE ITALIAN, first published in 1797, she creates a chilling, atmospheric concoction of thwarted lovers, ruined abbeys, imprisonment and dark passages, with an undercurrent of seething sexuality and presents us with a cunning villain in the sinister monk Schedoni. A contemporary review commented on, 'Radcliffe's uncommon talent for exhibiting, with picturesque touches of genius, the vague and horrid shapes which imagination bodies forth...' Radcliffe's work was hugely influential and H.P. Lovecraft, early twentieth century master of the uncanny, was impressed by the, "eerie touch of setting and action contributing artistically to the impression of illimitable frightfulness which she wished to convey." The novel remains a fascinating, engrossing and unnerving masterpiece of gothic fiction. AUTHOR: Although Ann Radcliffe did not invent the Gothic novel, she was a major factor in its development and popularity, and her work was very influential on many later writers, including Jane Austen.
This book bridges probabilistic risk assessment methodologies, including Monte Carlo and Bayesian, and practical application of these techniques to support food safety decision makers. Focused on a topic of increased international concern (for example, the 2008 e coli outbreak in US and Mexico lettuce), the book illustrates how methods are applied through chapter case studies on contamination in pathogen contamination in leafy greens, mercury contamination in fish, and risks of listeria. Its approach fits in with the 2008 National Research Council guidance on risk assessment.
