Edited By Wear,Stephen Etc.
This volume focuses on issues that will have a fundamentally pivotal character as we move into the third millennium, and its individual contributions all have a futuristic approach, in that they identify the nature of the choices or dilemmas these issues will present to us in the future, and the various resolutions that might be made regarding them. The three main topic areas in this volume are: the dilemma of funding health care; the Human Genome Project; and the physician/patient relationship. By examining these three topics, this edition thus focuses on: the societal options for financing and distributing health care; what may well be the area of medical science and research that most radically affects the nature of that care in the foreseeable future: and the most fundamental unit of care.326pp.

Rosenthal, Edna
This book examines literary modernism in its relation to the history of criticism by analysing the role of Aristotelian principles, primarily the notion of formal affectivism, in the critical writings of these three modernists who have invariably been thought to uphold incompatible aesthetic beliefs: where as Eliot saw himself as a classicist modernist, Stevens and Woolf shared a marked anti-classicist stance. Despite their initially incompatible attitudes to literary history and criticism, this study discloses their convergence on the Aristotelian notion of formal affectivism, demonstrated through specific conceptual shifts. The main feature of the book is its originality of approach, which seeks a 'diachronic' solution to a 'synchronic' problem - the debate about the Modern, reflected in the claims and counter claims made by the modernists themselves and by subsequent literary critics and theorists. This methodology was largely dictated by the nature of the subject: the adversarial critical orientation of three modernists, who have never been studied as a group before, and the attempt to reconcile their differences by reconfiguring them in terms of the Aristotelian critical tradition. The author demonstrates conclusively how Eliot incorporated central Aristotelian dramatic principles into his view of literary history and criticism, and, similarly, how both Stevens and Woolf, through historically determined conceptual shifts, endorse and use formal affectivism and dramatic criteria, which, as may be expected, they almost never refer back to Aristotle or to his foremost modernist defender, Eliot. 152pp.

This yearbook aims to provide an intellectual forum for the systematic analysis and scientific dissection of issues of international law as they apply to Africa, as well as Africa's contribution to the progressive development of international law. It contributes to the promotion, acceptance of and respect for the principles of international law, as well as to the encouragement of the teaching, study, dissemination and wider appreciations of international law in Africa. The yearbook examines the tensions underlying the State in Africa, and examines the causes of the fragility of African State institutions so as to facilitate the identification of appropriate remedies. The tension and interrelationships among issues such as territorial integrity, self determination, ethnic diversity and nation-building are addressed. Development, human rights and democratization in Africa are also the subject of attention and examination. The special theme of this volume is "Refugees and Displaced Persons in Africa". 541pp.

Biegman, Niek
To date, Nicolaas (Niek) Biegman has published nine photo books, all concerned with people: in the streets of Amsterdam, New York, Egypt and Haiti, performing Sufi rituals in Egypt, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Syria, oil wrestling in Macedonia and the painter Rein Dool. His work has been exhibited in Aleppo, Amsterdam, Cairo, Paris, Rotterdam, Skopje and Zagreb. This tenth book is the result of four years of walking and cycling around Amsterdam's streets and canals while mainly looking upward. Up there are the gables topped with exuberant wigs that are the trade mark of the city. The stone wigs contain the main living elements to be found in these photos: gods, dolphins, dogs, and lions. Additionally, the houses themselves show a human face to whoever wishes to see it. Biegman presents them as parts of the urban landscape, which attracts millions of visitors from all over the world, every year. Eventually, the visitors go home again. This book may help them to remember Amsterdam's peculiar architecture along with the canals and the streets where they discovered it. 133pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.
