Edited By Hunt,Richard H. And Tytgat,Guido N.J.
H. pylori infection, both in man and in the laboratory animal, has become a standard model to investigate fundamental problems in biology, such as microbial-host interactions, intracellular signalling, modulation of inflammation, mucosal atrophic metaplasia, and microbial resistance, to name just a few. The issues addressed in this book are grouped according to their leading theme. Topics include: the new Helicobacters, strain differences of H. pylori and their consequence on microbial-host interactions and the effects of H. pylori infection on the gastric mucosa. The role of H. pylori is explained in relation to: gastric carcinogenesis; gastroesophageal reflux disease; dyspepsia and long-term acid suppression. Eradication therapies are reviewed with respect to their global consequences and problems. The last two sections are devoted to a global update on therapeutic indications and finally on priorities for further research. These proceedings accurately reflect the state-of-the-art presentations delivered by world experts. This latest volume will further enrich this top-class series on H. pylori infection. 538pp.

Colitti, Marcello; Simeoni, Claudio
This work is an up-to-date analysis of the dynamics of petroleum resources. It covers such subjects as oil reserves, depletion policy, pricing strategy, technological factors, and consumer trends. Likewise, it addresses the constraints faced by oil industry planners, from production to third party sales and refining. In addition to in-depth analysis, this book proposes practical solutions to complex problems: for example, how the different objectives and interests of international oil companies and oil producing countries can be reconciled to their mutual advantage. Attention is also focused on development through cooperation beween producers, importers, and multinationals. This book ends by addressing the main challenges confronting interdependent economies in the near future. 164pp.

Jensen, Lionel M.
Could it be that the familiar and beloved figure of Confucius was invented by Jesuit priests? In "Manufacturing Confucianism", Lionel M. Jensen reveals this very fact, demonstrating how sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Western missionaries used translations of the ancient ru tradition to invent the presumably historical figure who has since been globally celebrated as philosopher, prophet, statesman, wise man, and saint.Tracing the history of the Jesuits' invention of Confucius and of themselves as native defenders of Confucius' teaching, Jensen reconstructs the cultural consequences of the encounter between the West and China. For the West, a principal outcome of this encounter was the reconciliation of empirical investigation and theology on the eve of the scientific revolution. Jensen also explains how Chinese intellectuals in the early twentieth century fashioned a new cosmopolitan Chinese culture through reliance on the Jesuits' Confucius and Confucianism.Challenging both previous scholarship and widespread belief, Jensen uses European letters and memoirs, Christian histories and catechisms written in Chinese, translations and commentaries on the Sishu, and a Latin summary of Chinese culture known as the Confucius Sinarum Philosophus to argue that the national self-consciousness of Europe and China was bred from a cultural ecumenism wherein both were equal contributors. "Manufacturing Confucianism" will have a major impact on studies of China, comparative literature, post colonialism, and Asian religions. For its insights into the history of modern Chinese nationalism, this path breaking study will also engage readers interested in contemporary Chinese affairs. 444pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to half title page. Corners slightly creased.
