Brown, Neville
Written by an experienced author with a strong background in both History and Earth Sciences, this text explores the philosophic implications of the dramatic developments now under way in astrophysics and astrobiology. How close may this progress, empirical and theoretical, bring us to a definitive understanding of ultimate realities? What could it connote for the future of the great religious obediences? What might it mean for the evolution of a planetary consciousness that could be the key to the survival of our overburdened world? Are there not alarming possibilities, yet also very positive ones? Discussion takes full account of hard science in a manner accessible to lay people, where the arguments and observations presented are set firmly in a deep historical perspective. A fundamental conclusion and imperative for the coming century is that there are some shaky but tangible grounds for believing we are poised to enter an era in which relations much improve within and between the great religious obediences; between them and philosophical agnosticism - to the many who subscribe to no established faith but who would lay claim to a broad ethical concern and spiritual aspiration; and between all of these and the natural sciences. Throughout, the author provides compelling examples of cosmic norms - rooted in Earth Science, Astronomy/Astrophysics and Historical Example - to demonstrate the issues mankind faces in coming to terms with the Universe, of which we are but a small part.367pp.

Rutkowski, Chris A.
UFOs are a truly global phenomenon. Although many of the best known cases have taken place in North America, amazing stories of witness' encounters with strange disc-shaped objects have come from every corner of the globe. From a floating platform watched by dozens in Indonesia, to a Saturn-shaped object that flew over a ship off the coast of Brazil, to a landing Down Under, UFOs have been baffling people and making headlines around the world. What are some of these most interesting cases and which ones seem most mysterious? And what can one the world's foremost researchers tell us about UFOs? 315pp.

Broderick, Terry R.
Information technology is continuing to transform global communications and the world economy with innovative products and services. In this dynamic environment, events tend to be market-driven and it may be difficult for the regulators to keep up. At the same time, there is a need for public authorities to promote effective competition within a clear, coherent, and predictable framework. This reference work summarizes the major rules and policies for information technology at European level. It describes the institutional framework and general policies for the "information society", examines the detailed rules for external trade, competition and intellectual property, and discusses the Internet and electronic commerce. It provides an excellent overview of the subject as well as a good starting point for additional research on particular issues. This work should be of interest to practising lawyers, corporate counsel, business executives, consultants, academics, and government or trade association officials. Base spine slightly bumped.104pp.

Edited By Cooper,D.K.C. ,Miller,L.W. And Patterson,G.A.
This second edition of the volume reflects the major developments that have taken place in the field of thoracic organ transplantation and replacement. With the exception of the historical chapters, every chapter has been extensively rewritten and updated and many new chapters have been added. The rapid growth of single and bilateral lung transplantation and the increasing use of left ventricular assist devices for long-term support are reflected in the text. Considerable emphasis has been placed on the current experimental and clinical developments taking place in both transplantation and mechanical replacement of organs, thus providing a preview of the clinical advances that are anticipated within the next few years. The volume contains 90 chapters that are grouped into four main areas: (i) general considerations of thoracic organ transplantation, (ii) heart transplantation, (iii) lung and heart-lung transplantation, and (iv) current and future advances in thoracic organ replacement. 824pp.

Edited By DePasquale,Paul W.
Is Canada truly postcolonial? Burdened by a past that remains "refracted" in its understanding and treatment of Native peoples, this collection reinterprets treaty making and land claims from Aboriginal perspectives. In the spirit of ongoing dialogue, essays by Sharon Venne, Patricia Seed, Harold Cardinal, Frank Tough, and Erin McGregor provide fresh insights to the interpretations of treaties and treaty-making processes, examine land claims still under negotiation, and reclaim the vitality of Aboriginal laws and paradigms in Canada, a country new to decolonisation.119pp.
