The aetiology of the chronic inflammatory bowel diseases -- Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis -- is still enigmatic. The therapeutic approach has therefore traditionally focused on anti-inflammatory principles, including corticosteroids and aminosalicylates. Since a significant proportion of patients is steroid-dependent or refractory and because of the problematic side-effects of long-term systemic steroids, active immunosuppression has gained acceptance in the field. The classical immunosuppressants azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine have long been evidence-based in IBD, but underused. Recently, methotrexate and cyclosporine have also been proven to be effective in certain situations. Newer drugs like tacrolimus, mycophenolate and others may be similarly useful but their potential is still unclear. Finally, the immune modifiers including IL-10 and TNF-antibodies have been successfully subjected to controlled trials. Other experimental drugs discussed in this book are on the horizon. This volume is the Proceedings of Falk Symposium 119 held in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, Germany, October 3--4, 2000, and covers systematically the field of immunosuppression in inflammatory bowel diseases. It is hoped that it will further the prudent use of these drugs in the proper clinical situations by increasing our understanding of both the mechanisms of action and the clinical benefit to the patient. 255pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of d/j spine.

Macnair, Peter L.; Hoover, Alan L; Neary, Kevin
This is a classic book on First Nations art and culture is back in print. "The Legacy" is so much more than an elegant art book. It is a delightful and informative guide to the continuing First Nations artistic traditions. A spectacular selection of colour photographs displays the work of 40 artists, and the authors present a detailed analysis of the culture that inspired their work. The authors also discuss the social function of the artists' work, and the different styles, techniques and materials used to create them. The book is based on an exhibition of the same name that travelled throughout BC and Canada and to the United Kingdom in the 1970s and early 1980s. The exhibition helped bring world-wide attention to Northwest Coast First Nations art. The first edition of the book was published in 1980, and in its Foreword, R Yorke Edwards, then Director of the BC Provincial Museum, says: '"The Legacy" has refused to stay on our store-room shelves. This book will ensure that it remains accessible in printed form to a wide audience for many years'. Prophetic words - for this book has been reprinted a dozen times and sold over 25,000 copies. "The Legacy" has become an enduring tribute to the continuing tradition of Northwest Coast First Nations art, and remains an important guide for scholars and art lovers. This new edition includes updates to the artists' biographies and First Nations' names. N.B Very slight mark to front cover. Base of spine slightly rubbed.193pp.
