Edited By Osiewacz,Heinz D.
This Volume of the Series is devoted to aging at the organismic level. Different levels of organisation, ranging from single cell organisms (yeast) to humans are included. In addition to the currently most important model systems like yeast, filamentous fungi, Caenorabditis elegans, flies and mice, other systems like sponges and plants are discussed. Most importantly, research using different aging models can be expected to unravel the most important basic mechanisms of aging that are conserved in all species. In addition, a critical discussion of what can be expected from this kind of strategy for the understanding of aging in humans is included. This book serves as excellent reading for graduate students, scientists in medical research, medical doctors, researchers in pharmacological fields, researchers, biologists, and experts of this area.276pp.Biology of Aging and Its Modulation Volume 4.

Czaykowski, Bogdan (editor); LaSelva, Samuel V. (editor)
This collection of essays evolved from a colloquium held at the University of British Columbia in 1995 to honour the eminent political scientist and aphorist W.J. Stankiewicz. A theorist and consultant on political decisions, Stankiewicz has been noted for his ability to bring the classical concepts of political science into the decision-making rooms of everyday political action. He has written on concepts such as democracy, ideology, liberalism, equality and justice, authority and sovereignty, violence and social change, property and happiness. Among the distinguished Canadian and American contributors are Alan Cairns, Jean Bethke Elshtain, George Feaver, Barry Cooper, Anthony Parel, Arpad Kadarkay and Ian Ross. The contributors, some of whom were Stankiewicz's students, have not only explored and extended the central ideas of Stankiewicz's thought; they have also applied them to today's political situations. The volume concludes with two of Professor Stankiewicz's hitherto unpublished essays (on natural law and ecology, and truth in politics). 407pp.

Cohen, Yoel
This work is a charged revealing examination of the historical events surrounding the London "Sunday Times" headline of October 5, 1986: "Revealed: the secrets of Israel's nuclear arsenal". Mordechai Vanunu, was a former technician at Israel's secret nuclear research centre at Dimona, and had made public highly classified information about Israel's nuclear research program; for this he was kidnapped by the Mossad, subjected to a closed doors trial, convicted of espionage and treason, and subjected to an eighteen-year sentence. A careful and meticulous study of the Vanunu affair, this startling expose involves Israel's intelligence community, and draws from thousands of pages of court transcripts and testimony connected to the case. "The Whistleblower of Dimona" is compelling and strongly recommended reading - especially in light of contemporary international events in the Middle East. Some rubbing to rear board.368pp.

Edited By Birkenhager,William,H
This guide is concerned with the practical aspects of managing the individual patient with hypertension, including associated risk factors. It aims to bridge the gap between the vast expanse of modern hypertension research and the everyday confrontation with the hypertensive subject in practice. The text should meet the needs of practising physicians on the basis of a thoughtful equilibrium between quick orientation and a scientifically agreeable course of action. 195pp.
