This is one of a series of annual publications of labour law judgements by the highest courts in a number of jurisdictions. They are intended primarily for the use of judges, labour law practitioners, industrial relations specialists and students who need access to authoritative information of a comparative nature on problems arising in the field of labour law and industrial relations. Each judgement reprinted in this volume is accompanied by headnotes and an annotation which sets forth, among other things, the legal issues involved, the basic facts of the case (if not included in the judgement itself), the relevant statutory provisions and judicial precendents, the labour law and industrial relations context in which the case arose, and the significance of the judgement in the development of the law. The book provides the reader with factual information that is not coloured by the personal views of the annotators. As a rule, judgements are printed "in extenso"; editorial discretion has been employed to delete or summarize portions of judgements that are purely technical or only of marginal interest. Volume 16 covers the period 1 October 1995 to 30 September 1996. N.B.Slight label residue to base of spine.

Walters, Kerry S.
Against the religious backdrop of pre- and postcolonial America stands the towering figure - and mind - of Benjamin Franklin. A Renaissance man in a Revolutionary time, Franklin had interests and knowledge not only in religion but in literature, philosophy, politics, publishing, history, and scientific inquiry, among many other disciplines. Kerry S. Walters examines Franklin's search for the Divine using a similar, multifaceted approach - and in so doing has created the first extended treatment of Franklin's religious thought in thirty years. Walters brings the same intellectual range and depth to the understanding of Franklin's beliefs that Franklin brought to his own quest. What emerges from this pilgrimage into the soul of one of America's greatest figures is a very human Benjamin Franklin who grew with the accumulation of knowledge to arrive at a 'theistic perspectivism', which provided him with a philosophical explanation for the diversity of religious faiths - and a justification for the liberty of conscience he advocated throughout his life. "Benjamin Franklin and His Gods" is an original and beautifully challenging spiritual and intellectual biography. It is destined to be a classic. 213pp. N.B. Fading to spine and spine edge of rear cover. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Edited By Rachmilewitz,D.
This book, the proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (Falk Symposium 101) held in Tel-Aviv, Israel, on September 22-24, 1997, is devoted to recent progress in diagnosing and treating inflammatory bowel diseases. The achievements of the years from 1948 to 1998, medical, surgical and in the basic sciences, are summarized in detail. Controversies with respect of the aetio-pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases are discussed together, with pending clinical controversies, such as the best way to monitor treatment, early versus late surgery, and post-operative maintenance and surveillance. A special section is devoted to an analysis of which of the available drugs is the drug of choice. Finally, a large section deals with surgical controversies, such as laparoscopic surgery in inflammatory bowel diseases, one- versus two-stage ileo-anal anastomosis and treatment of fistula in Crohn's disease. The last section outlines needs, both in the medical sciences and in the clinic. 239pp.Fading to d/j spine.
