Edited By Zhenghua,Tao and Wolfrum,Rudiger
Although all states agree that sustainable development must be provided for at the international level, it is still impossible to foresee which environmental problems are to be dealt with by the community of States rather than by states individually. The all-important debate over the development of specific measures enforceable under international law is just beginning. This book takes a major step in the progress of that debate toward a genuine global commitment to the protection of the earth and of future generations. The essays represent a confluence of expert scholarly opinion on this vital subject in two of the world's most populous and powerful countries. The outcome of a symposium in Beijing in September 1999, organized jointly by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the German Research Association, the book emphasizes the urgent need for international co-ooperation without losing sight of the inevitable restrictions on state sovereignty inherent in solving environmental problems. 200pp.

Banning, Lance (editor)
Liberty and Order is an ambitious anthology of primary source writings: letters, circulars, debate transcriptions, House proceedings, and newspaper articles that document the years during which America's founding generation divided over the sort of country the United States was to become. The founders' arguments over the proper construction of the new Constitution, the political economy, the appropriate level of popular participation in a republican polity, foreign policy, and much else, not only contributed crucially to the shaping of the nineteenth-century United States, but also have remained of enduring interest to all historians of republican liberty. This anthology makes it possible to understand the grounds and development of the great collision, which pitted John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and others who called themselves Federalists or, sometimes, the friends of order, against the opposition party led by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and their followers, in what emerged as the Jeffersonian Republican Party. Editor Lance Banning provides the reader with original-source explanations of early anti-Federalist feeling and Federalist concerns.373pp.

Maas, Marnix C.
Molecular imaging techniques enable the visualization of biological processes in living organisms. These techniques rely on synthetic biomolecules ('tracers') that specifically target a physiological process of interest without significantly disturbing it, and that poses some property which allows them to be detected externally. If the detectable property is radioactivity, the molecules are referred to as radiotracers, and the imaging technique is referred to as nuclear imaging. The aims of the research presented in this work are to determine the spatial resolution experimentally, the energy resolution and time resolution attainable with monolithic scintillator detectors, to analyze the dependence of these detector properties on physical quantities such as the scintillator light yield, the APD gain and the noise characteristics of the front-end electronics, and to predict the performance of a small animal PET system based on these detectors. The research presented in this publication is primarily based on experimental work on prototype detector modules. Simulation studies have been carried out in parallel; these are presented elsewhere. Some of the results of these simulation studies are also used in this work. 168pp. N.B. Small crease to bottom corner of rear cover.
