The therapeutic handling of autoimmune liver disease is limited because basic mechanistic insights into immunologically mediated pathophysiology have not yet been translated into standard pharmacological treatments. A future expansion of the incidence of autoimmune liver diseases is anticipated because of growing rates of exposure to an increased variety of xenobiotics of dietary, pharmaceutical or environmental origin. This book, the proceedings of an International Falk Workshop held in Konstanz, Germany, January 23-24, 1997, aims to share thinking among immunologists, biochemists, pharmacologists and clinicians in order to better understand the aetiology of this liver disease and its relation to extra-hepatic factors. 118pp.Fading to d/j spine.

As new but with slight bump to corner of front board.Take the snowiest mountains in Canada, add two Austrian immigrants, an army of adrenaline-addicted skiers (kings, queens, billionaires, average people and everyday ski bums) and throw a helicopter into the mix for an unforgettable story of mountain adventure. The tale begins when two childhood friends - Hans Gmoser and Leo Grillmair - leave post-war Austria and travel to Canada in search of adventure. They stumble upon employment taking skiers across the vast glaciers and through the thick forests of Western Canada. When skiers start asking the immigrant mountaineers if it would be possible to use a helicopter to reach the best high-altitude powder, the two find themselves catapulted into a project brimming with more adventure, success, tragedy and fame than they could have dreamed.Complete with archival and contemporary photos, this is the inside story of the people, thrills, accidents and innovations behind the evolution of a sport from a dangerous, ramshackle and lawless enterprise into a multi-million dollar industry offering reliable access to one of the world's most exciting forms of recreation. 293pp.

This text contains the papers presented at the 1998 Vancouver IBA Conference. The leading experts in international commercial arbitration presented their point of view from their respective countries on the situation of arbitration in Latin America. They reached the conclusion that international commercial arbitration in Latin American countries is in a state of good health, after analyzing: the general ratification of the international arbitration regulatory conventions; the legislative amendments enacted in the different parliaments; and the judicial activity in Latin American countries, in which case law, with its inevitable surprises, follows the lines of the best case law in countries familiar with arbitration. Many ad hoc arbitrations are being held, but, above all, the statistics from the arbitration administrative institutions demonstrate the importance of arbitration in Latin America. The usage of bi- or multilateral treaties of international public law to protect investments, as a basis for setting up the arbitral proceedings for international private law, confirms the prosperity of arbitral proceedings in Latin America.120pp.

Crime prevention should be rational and should be based on the best possible evidence. Decision-makers should weigh heavily any available evidence on what works best. How can a program that has produced no discernable evidence of effectiveness, as shown through numerous evaluations, be considered for implementation? Unfortunately, this happens all the time. Evidence-based crime prevention attempts to overcome this and other obstacles by ensuring that the best available evidence is considered in any decision to implement a program designed to prevent crime. This book is about evidence-based crime prevention. A project of the Campbell Collaboration Crime and Justice Group, "Preventing Crime" brings together the leading scientific evidence on what works best for a wide range of interventions organized around four important domains in criminology: at-risk children, offenders, victims, and places. It is the first book to assess the effectiveness of criminological interventions using the most rigorous review methodology of the systematic review. It is an indispensable guide to the leading scientific evidence on what works best to prevent crime. 243pp.

Head of spine bumped with rubbing to corners of boards. This collection of 20 essays examines cultural encounters between - and within - China, Japan and the West. Rather than engaging in the theoretical debate of the cultural concepts as such, the authors present new research on a wide range of topics, from linguistics and literature to the worlds of sociology and political science. Despite the diversity of topics and approaches, the common focus is on the processes of cultural interaction and the dynamics of reception and communication. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, this book includes contributions by scholars associated with the institute, as well as by scholars from Europe, America, China and Japan who have been temporarily attached to it. 496pp.
