Good as an introduction to the very basic beginnings of quantum field 
theory, except that it has the unfortunate feature of using 'imaginary time'
to make Minkowski space look Euclidean. 

5] Wheeler, J and Zurek, W (eds.)  Quantum Theory and Measurement, 1983
On the philosophical end. People who want to know about interpretations 
of quantum mechanics should definitely look at this collection of 
relevant articles.

Mechanics

An exposition which has some gems on thermodynamics and probability.
Worth reading for this alone.

Volume 74 in the FiP series. The so-called "revised printing" is a

A non-traditional approach. A good place to get an intuitive feel
for QM, if one already knows the traditional approach.

20] Holland: The Quantum Theory of Motion
A good bet for strong foundation in QM.

For the more mathematical side of quantum theory, especially for
those who are going to be arguing about measurement theory.

22] Schiff, Leonard, L: Quantum Mechanics, 3rd ed., 1968
A little old. Not much emphasis on airy-fairy things like many worlds
or excessive angst over Heisenberg UP. Straight up QM for people
who want to do calculations. Introductory gradauate level. Mostly
Schrod. eqn. Spin included, but only in an adjunct to Schrod. Not
much emphasis on things like Dirac eqn., etc.

23] "Quantum Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei, and Particles" by
Eisberg and Resnick, 2nd ed., 1985. 
This is a basic intro. to QM, and it is excellent for
undergrads. It is not thorough with math, but fills in a lot
of the  intuitive stuff that most textbooks do not present.

24] Elementary Quantum Mechanics, David Saxon
It's a decent undergraduate (senior level) text.

25] Intermediate Quantum Mechanics, Bethe and Jackiw

'I'm sure Theresa May is trying to figure out [something like] The Instagram coverages of Liz Truss'.

your time MP Chris Bryant, Who is on the Commons foreign affairs committee, Said the pm should return the money and accused the PM of avoiding a promised crackdown on corrupt Russian officials.

he was quoted saying: 'Some of us have been wondering for long periods why the Government is dragging its heels on introducing a Magnitsky list.

'I'm beginning to smell a rat and my experience over the past decades is that whenever I've smelt a rat so far one eventually crawls out of the drain.'

The Magnitsky list refers back to the US law of the same name that was introduced to impose economic sanctions on Putin allies in light of the death of Russian tax accountant Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009.

His death came after he carried out a study into corrupt Russian officials.

A similar proposal has been forward in the UK but has not yet got saving money light.

Lubov Chernukhin (better half to Vladimir Chernukhin) should be pictured
