Leckie,Scott Editor
More than one billion people around the world do not have adequate housing. How far does human rights law help to remedy this problem? What measures must governments take to protect people against housing rights violations? What are the strengths and weaknesses of human rights law in the housing area? Is the current law enough, or are new laws necessary? These and many other questions are addressed in the various chapters contained in this volume. While most coverage of economic, social and cultural rights has tended to focus on international standards and principles, this volume examines the more challenging question of how housing rights are implemented at the national and local level. Chapters from recognized housing rights practitioners from Brazil, Canada, India, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria, Philippines, South Africa, the US and elsewhere provide some of the first national-level legal analyses of the implementation of housing rights standards recognized under international law. 314pp.Base of spine slightly marked. Corners of boards bumped.

Fink, Paul M.
Beginning this volume with a chapter entitled "Prehistory," he goes on to chronicle the Indian troubles and other hardships suffered by those settling the frontier, their early government, development of trade and commerce, travel and the coming of the railroad, growth of churches and religion, as well as education and publications, and finally recording several pages of leftover bits of information under "Miscellany." His history of the oldest town in Tennessee was written in 1972, with financial aid through a Federal grant, and covers approximately the same period then under study for Jonesborough's preservation and restoration plans. In this "Second Edition", the original text remains intact, but more than one hundred photographs have been added along with a complete index. 203pp.N.B.Half inch closed tear to top left corner front d/j.

Edited By Salmasi,A.M. And Strano,A.
Arterial and venous diseases are major causes of morbidity and mortality in most of the world, especially in the western hemisphere. Not only of interest to angiologists, these illnesses are also of concern to most physicians in various fields ranging from cardiology, general medicine and cardiovascular surgery to physiology, pathology and clinical pharmacology. Specialists in diabetes, hypertension and epidemiology find these illnesses as challenging in their own fields of interest due to the gross interrelation of these diseases with their specialities. This book of 35 chapters contains an up-to-date discussion of various arterial and venous illnesses presenting major clinical applications ranging from basic pathology, haemodynamics and haemorheology to clinical features and management. Special attention has also been paid to epidemiology and prevention, discussing all the issues concerned. A special section on vascular emergency has also been included, thereby extending its usefulness to physicians and surgeons working in accident and emergency units. 526pp.

Ikeda, Daisaku
Beginning with the introduction of the religion into China, this chronicle depicts the evolution of Buddhism. The career and achievements of the great Kumarajiva are investigated, exploring the famed philosophical treatises that form the core of East Asian Buddhist literature. Providing a useful and accessible introduction to the influential Tien-t'ai school of Buddhism in Japan as well as the teachings of the 13th-century monk Nichiren, this examination places special emphasis on the faith of the Lotus Sutra and the major works of masters such as Hui-su, Chih-i, and Chanjan. From the early translations of the Buddhist scriptures to the persecution of the T'ang dynasty, this exploration illuminates the role of Buddhism in Chinese society, and by extension, in humanity in general. 194pp. Slight biro mark to front cover. Base of spine rubbed.
