Nielsen, Kai; Edited By Seymour, Michel and Fritsch, Matthias
Kai Nielsen has been the towering figure of Canadian philosophy over the last forty years. In this discussion and appreciation of Nielsen's work, highly respected specialists in the philosophy of religion, philosophical methodology (or metaphilosophy), and moral and political philosophy consider various aspects of his voluminous contributions and, at the same time, provide broad access to current philosophical debates. The volume contains not only twenty original papers on Nielsen's thought, but also his detailed responses to these critical essays. Among the outstanding contributors are Antony Kenny (philosophy and religion), Richard Rorty(methodology/metaphilosophy), Steven Lukes (Marxism), Norman Daniels (global justice), and Kok Chor Tan (nationalism). Despite the wide variety of these themes, Nielsen's body of work and his responses here show that it is possible to develop a systematic approach that links difference areas of philosophy within one perspective. This stimulating collection will thus attract readers in many different specialities. 431pp.

Risjord, Norman K.
In "Shining Big Sea Water", historian Norman K Risjord offers a grand tour of Lake Superior's remarkable history, taking readers through the centuries and into the lives of those who have travelled the lake and inhabited its shores. Through lively, informative chapters, Risjord begins with the lake's cataclysmic geological birth, then explores the lives of native peoples along the shore before European contact and during the fur trade, showing how Superior functioned as an unusual "blue water highway" for Indians, early explorers, industries, and settlers. He outlines the development of such cities as Sault Ste.Marie, Michigan; Ashland, Wisconsin; and Two Harbors, Minnesota, and tells the fascinating histories of life-saving lighthouses and famous shipwrecks. In the final chapter, Risjord looks to the future, offering a clear-eyed account of the environmental and economic challenges faced by America's largest freshwater lake. Interspersed throughout the book are handy tips for travelers, highlighting historically significant sites that illustrate key pieces of Lake Superior's natural and human history, including national lakeshores, in the United States and provincial parks in Canada.178pp.

Edited By Schmid,R. Etc.
The advent of molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology has changed contemporary medicine profoundly. These new scientific tools have made it possible to identify and understand pathological mechanisms at cellular, subcellular and molecular levels which has added previously unimaginable novel dimensions to the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of a rapidly increasing number of diseases of the liver and biliary system. The title of this book expresses this epochal progress in hepatology. A series of acute or chronic diseases of the liver has been chosen whose modern clinical management reflects the impact of the new scientific insight gained from molecular biology. The book, the proceedings of the 87th Falk Symposium (X International Congress of Liver Diseases: Part II of the Basel Liver Week 1995) held in Basel, Switzerland, October 19-21, 1995, first presents an overview of the molecular pathology of the chosen disease, followed by discussions of the clinical inference which this new scientific information entails for diagnosis, management and therapy. This approach is expected to ease the readers' endeavour to connect basic to clinical science and to facilitate appreciation of the enormous progress but also of the inherent limitations and emerging questions which modern molecular biology has brought to clinical medicine.N.B.D/J spine slightly faded with slight mark to base of d/j spine.396pp.

Edited By Rutgeerts,P. Et al.
The format of the Falk Symposium 106 on "Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases", held in Brussels, Belgium, June 18-20, 1998, attempted to link the new insights into pathogenetic mechanisms with new therapeutic approaches, resulting in optimal information transfer. This book summarizes the findings. The classic therapeutic schemes were updated with a special focus on step-wise build-up of therapy. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease remain a great therapeutic challenge to the medical community. Knowledge about the pathogenesis of these diseases has progressed rapidly but the cause of the diseases remains completely unknown. It has become clear that dysregulation of the mucosal immune system is the basis for the chronic evolution of the diseases in a genetically susceptible population. 316pp.
