Edited By Haussinger,D Etc
The hepatocyte adapts its metabolic and excretory function to changes in nutrient supply, xenobiotics, cytokines and hormones, which provides a basis for the role of the liver in the maintenance of the body's homeostasis. Such adaptations of hepatocellular function to the environment require not only structures for recognition of signal molecules and for the sensing of environmental alterations, but also machineries which transfer this information to intracellular effector sites. Considerable progress has been made during recent years with respect to the understanding of membrane-associated receptor systems and the molecular mechanisms by which signals are transduced from these receptors to the effector sites inside the cell, i.e. the nucleus and other organelles, the cytoskeleton and various enzymes. A complex signal transduction network involving a co-ordinated action of a variety of protein kinase and phosphatase cascades has been identified. Such signalling events are not only important for the understanding of the physiological regulation of liver cell function, but also provide new pathophysiological and therapeutic aspects. This text, the proceedings of a Falk Workshop on "Signalling in the Liver" (Part IV of the Liver Week Freiburg 1997) held in Freiburg, Germany, October 6, brings together an international forum of experts in both basic science and clinical applications.Slight fading to base of D/J spine.224PP

Sommer, Barbara W.
"Hard Work and A Good Deal" traces the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps, which supplied jobs to over 77,000 Minnesotans during the Great Depression. Nearly one hundred interviews contribute to oral historian Barbara W Sommer's lively narrative as the "boys" look back on their time in the CCC, during which many of them became men. African American enrollees tell of the segregated policies enforced in the army-run camps: workers for the CCC-Indian Division remember reservation projects that included rebuilding a fur trade-era stockade at Grand Portage. Together, these men give voice to early efforts that advanced the conservation of Minnesota's natural resources by decades in a few short years. 205pp.

Gold, Ron
This book presents three themes which are central to Piaget's description of cognitive development: development as increasing satisfaction of the double biological aim; as a progressive escape from domination by the most accessible perceptual features in the environment; and the profundity of cognitive developmental change. 174pp. N.B.

Boylston, James R. And Wiener, Allen J.
Slight nick on front of D/J. Countering the widespread historical persona of David Crockett as little more than a coonskin-capped, buckskin-clad frontier hero, this remarkable biography chronicles his life in politics, revealing him instead as an inveterate entrepreneur, advocate for the poor, and career politician with a talent for hardball campaigning. Through a careful review of his letters, speeches, and political circulars, this provocative and insightful examination provides a unique, long-ignored perspective on the man behind the legend and corrects inaccurate portrayals perpetuated by previous works, most notably John B Shackford's landmark 1956 biography. Following his political rise from justice of the peace and magistrate to two-term representative in the Tennessee State Legislature and three-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives, this account fully documents the elections of 1829, 1831, 1833, and 1835 and details the progress of both the Tennessee Land Bill (1829 -- 1830) and the Indian Removal Bill (1830). A truly exceptional volume, this exploration offers an alternative context for one of American history's most important figures and evaluates the political objectives for which he constantly strove. 336pp.
