Ginat, Joseph and Perkins, Edward J.
There has been little progress on the refugee problem because of official Palestinian public positions, other Arab countries' approach to the 'right of return' of all Palestinian refugees, and the contrasting Israeli public policy of not allowing any refugees to return to Israel. Such polar-opposite approaches can never resolve this difficult and longstanding humanitarian problem. By working collectively, the world's leading experts from Arab countries, the Palestinian Authority, Israel, Europe and the United States have developed a chessboard of proposed solutions. The volume in part reflects the polarization that exists on the issue, and in part moves away from the political slogans of both sides, toward concrete proposals for negotiating a comprehensive agreement. 341pp.

Edited By Agius,Emmanuel and Basuttil,Salvino
In contemporary ethical discussion widespread concern about the potential risks of genetic engineering is raising new and fundamental questions about our responsibilities towards unborn generations. Newly acquired knowledge in genetic engineering techniques has brought about not only potential benefits but also immense risks for the well-being of both present and future generations. This text raises a number of ethical issues concerning the impact of genetic engineering on generations yet to be born. The four topical areas that constitute the focus of the volume, namely (1) from laboratory to germ-line therapy, (2) the concept of human nature: theological and secular perspectives, (3) genetic intervention and the common heritage view, and (4) social responsibilities of geneticists towards future generations, raise intriguing ethical and legal questions, as well as important policy issues. As much as any set of issues, they reflect the hopes and fears, prejudices and uncertainties that people associate with germ-line intervention and the future of human kind. 174pp.N.B.Slight marking to base of d/j spine.

Von Moos, Stanislaus
"Designing has less to do with inventing than with recombining stored architectural memories." By saying this, architects Heinz Hilmer and Christoph Sattler are trying to express that they are not inclined to give into the hope that is especially raised in Modernism of being able to invent something really new, but that instead they consciously take their bearings from constantly recurring forms of architecture and urbanism. They neither desire nor aim to design a quite different building or a quite different town, but to develop the building and the city as well as they possibly can from their particular context, literally building on the experience of the past. Another of the two architects' credos is that architecture is an independent discipline with its own laws, and that therefore it should not draw from other areas: "A building is neither a cave nor a tent, neither a tree nor an umbrella, neither a stand nor a machine, neither structure nor construction. A building is a building." Leafing through this book about Hilmer and Sattler's work over the last 25 years - from their first private house, built for philosopher Jurgen Habermas, a reflection on the white, cubic architecture of early Modernism, via the block-edge development in the centre of Karlsruhe and the Gemaldegalerie in the Tiergarten in Berlin down to the urban design for the area around Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, which helped to gain acceptance for the principle of the European city as a living tissue of buildings, streets and squares rather than an ultimately city-hostile agglomeration of high-rise buildings in this part of Berlin - what is conveyed as well as precision of detail, diversity and proportionality is above all the self-confidence of these two architects who are so sure of themselves. 243pp.
