Gallagher, Peter
148pp.As the ultimate arbiter in the global trade regime, the dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a body whose workings should be known to business people and their counsel everywhere. Here is a book - reviewed for accuracy by the WTO but written independently - that provides an uncomplicated but thorough explanation of the system, its purpose, its rules, and the role it plays in the management of the international economy. Peter Gallagher, a former trade negotiator and a specialist in the Uruguay Round agreements, answers such questions as: what sort of disputes does the WTO deal with?; can business or citizens use the WTO dispute system?; is it possible to get a temporary injunction to stop some action?; how much does it cost a to bring a case?; how far can you keep on appealing a decision?; what processes does a Panel follow?; what does the Appellate Body review?; what process does the Appellate Body follow?; how does intervention by other parties affect a dispute? As a handy guide to "bringing a case" before the WTO, or responding to a case already in progress, this easy-to-use book should prove an ideal starting point for lawyers, business people, or government officials confronted with a disputable trade issue.

Oppenheimer, Paul
Guilt makes no compromises. One may be a little in love or a little bit angry, but the idea of degrees of guilt is meaningless. Any guilt, whether of the emotional, religious or legal variety, is fiendishly intense. The word itself points to a mysterious intensity of indebtedness, and this with an absolution extraordinary in human affairs. This book aims to go to the heart of the mystery. Its theme, that of the absolutism of guilt, is explored from a variety of different perspectives and through a series of anecdotes. The author examines the sources of the word "guilt"; languages and cultures without the concept of guilt; the religious importance and meaning of guilt, in Judaism, Christianity and other religions; psychological investigations of guilt, by Freud and Jung, among others; guilt and criminal behaviour; guilt and mourning; the effect of guilt as a creative stimulant in modern times, on literature, art, politics, law and film; and the mysterious persistence of guilt in modern secular societies Throughout, the text is supported with quotations from authors ancient and modern. 127pp.

Presenting new and innovative perspectives on macroeconomics at the national and international level, the editors bring together contributions on a wide range of topics including: social, institutional and environmental perspectives; current issues of globalization; transitional economies; inequity; unemployment; national and international debt; and the relationship of macroeconomic policies to the environment. The contributors draw on expertise in a variety of areas to provide insight into debates on macroeconomic policy in the US and Europe, as well as in developing and transitional economies. Themes include: disequilibrium in the macroeconomy - analysis of the roots of instability and crisis in national and global systems; the evolution of macroeconomic institutions to stabilize and guide economic growth; the paradoxes of globalization, the dangers of unrestricted financial flows and the impacts of globalization on national institutional coherence; macro and institutional strategies for the transitional economies of Russia and Eastern Europe; distributional and equity issues, including employment, housing and homelessness; the impact of macroeconomic policy and debt on the environment; and long-term growth and its relationship to well-being and environmental sustainability. 259pp. n.B.

Edited By Targan,Stephan R.;Shanahan,Fergus and Karp,Loren C.
The individual chapters in this book combine to form components of a detailed story of the local and systemic pathophysiology of intestinal inflammation, with a series of management strategies. The authors present research advances and current concepts of etiopathogenesis in the context of what is already known of the clinicopathologic features of these disorders. This book blends recent advances in the basic and clinical sciences as they relate to inflammatory bowel disease. This book is designed to illustrate the effectiveness of a team approach of basic scientists and clinician investigators in this field. It will give the reader a glimpse of where the field is moving and an idea of likely research directions in the future. 903pp.
