Tolstoy, Leo
This book is an introduction to the high humanitarian ideas of the great Russian writer and philosopher Leo Tolstoy. It was inspired by the portrait reproduced on the cover dustjacket. The inscription on the portrait was written, in Russian, by Alexandra Lvovna Tolstoy, youngest daughter of the world famous writer and presented to the author, Michael Levin, on the occasion of his visit to her in 1977 at her home in upstate New York. In translation, the inscription reads: My father once said: 'Believing gives soulful peace; sense of divine soul gives power'. These words of his have always helped me in life. And I am happy that you helped people - tourists - when they came to bow their heads at his grave. 204pp.

Edited By Booij,Geert and Van Marle,Jaap
The Yearbook of Morphology series, published since 1988, has proven to be an eminent support for an upswing of morphological research, since it contains articles on topics which are central in the theoretical debates which are frequently referred to. "The Yearbook of Morphology 1999" focuses on diachronic morphology, and shows, in a number of articles by specialists, how complicated morphological systems develop in the course of time. In addition, this volume deals with a number of hotly debated issues in theoretical morphology: its interaction with phonology (including Optimality Theory), the relation between inflection and word formation, and the formal modelling of inflectional systems. A feature of this volume is an article on morphology in sign language, a new area of research in linguistics. The relevant evidence comes from a wide variety of languages, amongst which Germanic, Romance, and Slavic languages are prominent. 319pp.

Flax, Jane
"Disputed Subjects" analyzes the assumptions behind contemporary notions of justice and knowledge and discusses why modernity cannot be emancipatory. The text explores the effects of gender relations in modern political ideas and theories of knowledge. The author identifies problematic aspects of discourses such as psychoanalysis, postmodernism and feminist theory. Special attention is paid to recurring difficulties with maternity, sexuality and race within feminist theory, and the inadequacies of postmodern accounts of subjectivity and gender. The book analyzes psychoanalysis to identify its particular organization of knowledge and power. Previous owner's signature on ffep.188pp.

Editor Atherton,Rosalind F.
This collection of articles is a reflection of the wide range of interests held by estate and trust lawyers. The issues discussed include: art law in the context of an estate or trust; questions of control over the body itself, including the futuristic issue of the status of frozen embryos in relation to an estate; broad trusts' issues, including the place and nature of the trust in both civil and common law jurisdictions; and the resolution of family property concerns in relation to matrimonial law, forced heirship laws, or family provision on death. Other articles consider practical questions such as transnational tax planning, planning for the transition of a family business on death, retirement planning and the management of collective investments. The work takes a comparative approach, examining each issue from the perspective of a number of different jurisdictions. This collection arises from the annual meetings and discussion of members from the International Academy of Estate and Trust Law. 963pp.
