Nevo, Joseph
Throughout the decade that predated the 1967 war, Jordan's declared views regarding Israel and the Arab-Israeli conflict were not basically different from those of the Arab consensus - namely, rejection of Israel's legitimacy. In the wake of the war, King Hussein was the first Arab leader to realise that in order to regain the recently lost territories, which he considered a most vital and urgent task, he (and the other heads of state) would have to offer Israel a meaningful quid pro quo. Hence the shift in Jordan's policy was twofold: a change of the traditional statements that had been made by the King and his officials prior to June 1967; and a change in the views expressed by Jordanian spokespersons vis-a-vis the declarations of other Arab leaders.209pp.

Edited By Arnaldi, Simone; Lorenzet, Andrea; Russo, Federica
Slight dent to front cover and fore edge of front board otherwise New. Nanotechnology seems to escape boundaries and definitions. The "Rush to Nanoscale" spreads throughout different sites and arenas, involving a multiplicity of actors, meanings and spaces in which they emerge. The 'uncertainty of nanotechnology' appears to be both a condition and a consequence of this situation. This volume adds to the collective effort of charting the multiple and heterogeneous dimensions that characterize nanotechnology, by analyzing the numerous modalities through which different stakeholders and actors provide definitions, attribute meaning and sense to nanoenabled innovations. The chapters of the book attempt to highlight how nanotechnologies, their discourse, and their actual and potential implications cannot be isolated in laboratories, factories, markets and separate discussion arenas. Also, the volume examines how it is apparently not possible to bind and/or confine the definition of nanotechnology by referring exclusively to present-day research and applications, as well as to geographical, cultural and even disciplinary boundaries. Considered together, this collection of essays suggests that the 'societal experiment' of nanotechnology has to be explored with a vocabulary that is not just scientific and technical, in order to cross the frontiers between multiple domains, actors, identities, translations and negotiation processes that occur in the nanotechnology field. 143pp.

Tolstoy, Leo
This book is an introduction to the high humanitarian ideas of the great Russian writer and philosopher Leo Tolstoy. It was inspired by the portrait reproduced on the cover dustjacket. The inscription on the portrait was written, in Russian, by Alexandra Lvovna Tolstoy, youngest daughter of the world famous writer and presented to the author, Michael Levin, on the occasion of his visit to her in 1977 at her home in upstate New York. In translation, the inscription reads: My father once said: 'Believing gives soulful peace; sense of divine soul gives power'. These words of his have always helped me in life. And I am happy that you helped people - tourists - when they came to bow their heads at his grave. 204pp.
