Williams, Bernard
Although humanity has changed since the times of the ancient Greeks, this study claims that the differences are not to be traced to a shift in basic conceptions of ethical life. We are more like the ancients than we are prepared to acknowledge, and only when this is understood can we properly grasp our most important differences from them, such as our rejection of slavery. This treatise is directed towards writers such as Homer and the tragedians. At the centre of the study is the question of how we can understand Greek tragedy at all, when its world is so far from ours. 254pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Small mark to rear cover where price sticker has been removed.

Benito, E.; Giacosa, A.
This book evaluates new data on diet and cancer and uses it to update the dietary guidelines produces by ECP and IUNS in 1985. It is the proceedings of the 9th Annual Symposium of the European Organization for Cooperation in Cancer Prevention Studies held in Madrid during October, 1991. The first section updates general background material (dietary carcinogens, animal studies), the second section concerns diet and cancer at specific sites and also specific nutrients in human cancer. The third section addresses problems with guidelines per se and the fourth the Mediterranean diet in relation to cancer. These chapters, together with the general conclusions reached in a parallel workshop, represent a review of the current status of diet and cancer and also provides the background to the conclusions that guidelines as formulated in 1985 can no longer be sustained and that they need to be replaced by guidelines that concern food groups instread of nutrients and are targetted at particular groups rather than at the population in general. N.B.Slight fading to spine,slightly marked at base of spine.198pp.
