Edited By Qureshi,Asif H.
Economic activity, Professor Qureshi insists, is a visible manifestation of the human condition. Therefore, the laws that regulate it and develop its norms must be deeply human. International economic law must be ever-vigilant in its efforts to represent the economic needs of all strata of humanity - it must not allow the cultural imperatives of any one group to predominate. To investigate the validity of this deeply-held conviction, in May 2001 Professor Qureshi and the University of Manchester School of Law brought together a conference of major IEL scholars to elicit as broad a diversity of perspectives as possible. This book, grew out of that conference, with contributors and other scholars focusing and augmenting their standpoints in essays that crystallize the critical perspectives from which IEL may be viewed. Issues and topics that arise in the course of the investigation include the following: globalization and its institutions; the survival of the nation-state; the role of the International Court of Justice; sustainable development; developing countries and dispute settlement; developing countries and trade negotiations; regional integration; human rights and the "untouchability" of IEL; and the gender bias of basic IEL institutions and rules. There are also clear presentations of specifically Marxist and Islamic perspectives, and an analysis along lines of "fairness" as developed by Thomas Franck and John Rawls. 338pp.

What is it like to be a professional in today's Nordic public sector organisations? This book describes everyday problems experienced by individuals in official positions. The authors' analyses are set against a background of rising rates of sick leave, more cases of mental burnout, decreasing resources and constant demand for professional improvement. Rapid changes in organisations, such as new forms of leadership, new technology and management by documents and the call for client-oriented practices are part of the professional's working life. The individual professional is the prime focus of this book.Tensions that arise between the individual and the organisation/profession are illustrated by a range of examples of problems that public officials, such as teachers, policemen and nurses, are confronted with on a daily basis. The authors discuss subjects such as increased individualisation, complexity in relationships, intensified pace and fragmentation of work. This title intends to signal an invitation to further the research about a dynamic field where today's professionals meet the requirements of their professions and organisations.371pp.

Edited By Sissons,J.G.P. Etc.
The immune system has evolved in large part to enable organisms to resist microbial infection. Micro-organisms have long been used as experimental tools by immunologists, and the study of the immune response to viruses and bacteria has contributed much to our understanding of basic immunological mechanisms. There are also important practical and clinical reasons for attempting to understand the immunology of infections. These include the rational design of vaccines, the pathogenesis of infectious diseases, the advent of AIDS, the rise in drug-resistant mycobacterial infections and the recognition of the infectious aetiology of peptic ulcer disease. The contributors to this book are all chosen for their active involvement and expertise in the fields. It bridges the divide between basic immunological research and clinical practice. 245pp.Slight fading to base of spine.
