Hirschl, Meta Chaya
The word yoga, first recorded in approximately 4000 BCE, is Sanskrit for 'union'. Typically it signifies a uniting of body, mind, and spirit leading to deepening states of happiness and freedom. This book places this ancient practice in a uniquely modern-day context. Interwoven with discussions about the eight limbs of yoga as presented in the original literature, including the core principles, Sanskrit Devanagari, mantras, poses, breath work, and meditation, are recipes, a derivation of terms, compassion ate communication guidelines, basic teaching principles, wisdom and photos of the great sages, and illuminating accounts by contemporary yogis. Throughout, readers are guided to connect to their inner selves, quiet the mind, and harness their power to achieve bliss and transcend fear, emotional turmoil, and attachment to the stresses of life. This informative reference features a highly visual format, including a first-ever historical timeline of yogic philosophies, texts, and key figures. Introduced too is yoga therapy for everything from low back or knee pain to depression. Each chapter concludes with specific invitations to delve further into the heart of yoga. Designed to enrich any chosen style of practice, this book is ideal not only for yoga students and aspiring yoga teachers but also for healing arts practitioners and their patients, as well as anyone seeking to cultivate a vibrantly healthy body, mind, and spirit. Slight crease to bottom edge of cover otherwise new. 300pp.

Edited By Whicher,J.T. And Evans,S.W.
Our understanding of inflammation has increased rapidly in recent years, due in large part to the impact of molecular biology and gene identification and cloning. This book brings together ideas from a number of different biochemical disciplines which are frequently not integrated. The first chapter gives a visual overview of the subject; the remaining chapters are organized into three themes: the affector molecules, the regulatory components and the processes of inflammation itself. This book is aimed at the busy physician or pathologist who wants to be up-to-date with recent developments in immunology as they affect the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. 313pp.N.B.Spine slightly faded.

Connors,Richard and Law,John M. Editors
This book analyses the principal events and processes that precipitated the emergence and formation of the law and legal culture of Alberta from the foundation of the Hudson's Bay in 1670 until the eve of the centenary of the Province in 2005. The formation of Alberta's constitution and legal institutions was by no means a simple process by which English and Canadian law was imposed upon a receptive and passive population. Challenges to authority, latent lawlessness, interaction between indigenous and settler societies, periods (pre- and post-1905) of jurisdictional confusion, and demands for individual, group, and provincial rights and recognitions are as much part of Alberta's legal history as the heroic and mythic images of an emergent and orderly Canadian west patrolled from the outset by red coated mounted police and peopled by peaceful and law-abiding subjects of the Crown. Papers focus on the development of criminal law in the Canadian west in the nineteenth century; the Natural Resources Transfer Agreement of 1930; the National Energy Program of the 1980s; Federal-Provincial relations; and the role and responsibilities of the offices of Justices of the Peace and of the Lieutenant-Governor; and the legacies of the Lougheed and Klein governments.N.B.Rear d/j cover slightly marked.
