Edited By De Waal, Louise C.;Large, Andrew R.G. And Wade, P. Max
River rehabilitation has become an issue at the top of the agenda for water authorities and river managers in many countries throughout the world. This challenging topic involves a wide range of themes, many of which are brought together in this volume. They concern planning strategy, implementation and project appraisal for a number of different types of river systems including upland, lowland and urban rivers. Topic areas addressed include hydrology, geomorphology, ecology and economics as, to be successful, rehabilitation of freshwaters must incorporate all of these subjects within a holistic framework. This volume covers a wide range of countries, provides comprehensive and integrated coverage of factors concerning river rehabilitation and encompasses policy, planning and implementation. As such, the text will have a lasting reference value and practical application. Rehabilitation of Rivers combines prescriptive, analytical and reviewing contributions, covering a wide range of case studies from Britain, continental Europe, the USA, Australia and Japan. It also examines strategic issues such as catchment planning and integrated application of ecology and engineering in river rehabilitation. This book will be an important text for all water authorities and river managers as well as hydrologists, geomorphologists, ecologists and nature conservationists.331pp.

Freidenreich, Fradle Pomerantz
This title includes a book & a CD. A little-known chapter in the history of Jews in North America involves a wide network of Yiddish schools and camps that sought to transmit a distinctive, authentic sense of secular yiddishkayt. Over a fifty-year period at the beginning of the last century, about 1000 Yiddish cultural schools were established in the United States and Canada, along with at least 39 summer camps, sponsored by a range of organisations. Together these schools and camps comprised a vibrant, multi-faceted educational movement with lasting significance, often overlooked by historians. The founders of these institutions, Eastern Europe immigrants who sought continuity with the richness of their past, formulated new models for education. True visionaries, they were pioneering in their efforts often considered radical at the time emphasising Yiddish language and literature, Jewish values, folklore, and traditions in various interpretations, ideology and politics. They were full of passion, seeking to touch the hearts and minds of students, creating meaningful experiences that would teach both values and facts. Many of the teachers were trained in Eastern Europe; and quite a few were also Yiddish poets, cultural critics, and artists. This is the first comprehensive documented record of this movement. Through extensive research, Fradle Pomerantz Freidenreich reveals the far-reaching contributions of these institutions. She consulted many archives in the United States and Canada, tracked down the stories of hundreds of students and the professionals and laypeople involved. She looked at communities, national sponsoring groups, curriculum and publications in a process which can be described as educational archaeology. For the author, the project was person al and professional. The daughter of a well-known Yiddish poet and a Jewish educator, she attended and later worked at a number of these schools and camps. In this ground-breaking study, personal narratives and objective reporting are integrated. Freidenreich found more than 160 communities, ranging from large cities to agrarian colonies that were host to Yiddish secular schools and camps far more than she anticipated and she discusses the birth and evolution of these institutions and their sponsoring groups, with their ideological and political differences. She also reports on their eventual decline and the legacy they left to the educational institutions that would succeed them, describing their many progressive pedagogical innovations. These Yiddish schools and camps were the first to link programs providing continuity in year-round Jewish education in the belief that true education is much more than book-learning and classroom lessons. 498pp. N.B. Head and tail of spine slightly bumped.

Edited By Friedman,Eli A & L'Esperance Jnr.,Francis A.Jnr
After a decade or longer, approximately one-third of individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes commence a downhill course in which decreasing renal function and failing vision define a renal-retinal syndrome, dominating all aspects of life and presaging early death. Only a generation ago, survival after onset of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in diabetes was limited because rehabilitation was pre-empted by blindness, limb amputation, stroke, and heart disease. By 1998, however, team management has improved the outlook, with preserved sight and return to work and home responsibilities, usually for a decade or longer, following kidney transplantation and laser photocoagulation. Recognition of the critical requirement for blood pressure regulation and metabolic control are central themes in management. In this book, the accomplishments of ophthalmologists, nephrologists, diabetologists, transplant surgeons, and basic scientists are blended into a strategic approach that may be readily applied by all those caring for diabetic patients. Each of 21 presentations suitable for primary care physicians, as well as for subspecialists concerned with macrovascular and microvascular complications of diabetes, is placed in perspective by an introductory editorial analysis. Promising near-term innovative therapies, including insertion of genetically engineered beta cells or polymer-coated islets of Langerhans, interdiction of kinins that promote retinal angiogenesis, and prevention of synthesis of advanced glycosylated endproducts (AGEs), are presented in detail. While comprehensive care of diabetic patients reflects multiple incremental advances which afford major benefit, this text envisions further remarkable changes likely to suppress and possibly entirely prevent the diabetic renal-retinal syndrome.284pp.

Lacey, Michael J. (editor); Haakonssen, Knud (editor)
Written by leading authorities in history, philosophy, jurisprudence and political theory, the essays in this volume provide new insights into the variable and changing contents of the rights thinking and consciousness that lie at the core of American political culture and shape its central political institutions. Based on the current state of scholarly understanding and intended to provide a fresh sense of orientation into the complexities of the separate topics covered, the studies focus on two distinct 'moments' in the American experience: the eighteenth-century period of founding that produced the Bill of Rights as an element in the Constitutional settlement, and the contemporary moment, marked by a new historical consciousness of the difficulties of interpreting rights in changing contexts and thus by the continuing search for a properly grounded philosophical jurisprudence adequate to meet the ethical, social, and political conflicts of the present. 474pp.
