Caraccilo, Dominic J.
Few American prisoners of war during World War II suffered more than the group that was captured on the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines. The men were forced to endure the infamous Death March, a series of overcrowded prison camps, and the 'hell ships' transporting them to Japan and Korea. Among them was Colonel Irvin Alexander, who recounts his harrowing experience as a captive of the Japanese. As a midlevel commander, he knew the politics behind the surrender in April 1942, but he also suffered with the rest of the men through a horrific confinement. This is the story of one man's struggle to survive a brutal, often unfathomable captivity.342pp.

Editors Elkin-Koren,Niva and Netanel,Neil Weinstock
Information and the marketplace are uneasy bedfellows. The dissemination of information via media can have many different and overlapping purposes, including entertainment, art, ideology, and research. It is particularly among groups that need to share information - the academic and scientific communities, for example - that viewing it as something that can be bought and sold is intrusive and even damaging. There are many other reasons why the commodification of information, which continues to move from strength to strength with the expansion of international free trade, must be carefully scrutinized. To this end, a conference of specialists with expertise encompassing the area of law and practice where intellectual property, communications, privacy, free speech, collaborative research, and international trade all intersect met under the auspices of the University of Haifa Faculty of Law in May 1999. This book presents the analyses and recommendations that emerged from that conference. As one might expect, a broad spectrum of views is expressed, from commercialism as the liberator of free speech to commodification as de facto censorship. 514pp.

Malvee, Sangeeta
Biotechnology is a technique that uses living organisms to create and amend a product, to develop plants and animals or to develop micro-organisms for explicit uses. Biotechnological means of genetic improvement is a modern and faster approach. Genome manipulations (Chromosomal Engineering) and gene transfer (Genetic Engineering) have been experimentally studied throughout past in many countries. To date genetic progress in livestock breeding programs has relied whichever on breed exchange or leading the conventional quantitative genetic approach of testing and selection.Under these circumstances the need to develop new technologies became imperative unlike in agriculture and veterinary farming exploitation of genetic potentials and utilization of genetically improved cultured varieties of fish is not a common practice in aquaculture all most all species of fish are genetically improved to the traditional selective reading and hybridization methods. Aquaculture is multidisciplinary activity. This book overviews Fishes and related biotechnology techniques. Reading this book will be beneficial for students of fisheries, researchers in this field and entrepreneurs. 471pp. N.B. Edges and corners bumped. Head and tail of spine bumped.
