Maisch, B; Oelze, R.
During the last decades, progress has been made in the treatment of patients who survived myocardial infarction. Nevertheless, patients who survive an acute myocardial infarction are at high risk, with life expectancy half that of their peers who have not experienced similar events, and with increased risk for subsequent cardiovascular events and death. The risk of sudden death increases with severity of systolic dysfunction after myocardial infarction. In recent years, it has become clear that in addition to risk factors such as overweight, lack of exercise, smoking, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, psychosocial factors play a key role for prognosis in patients with myocardial infarction. Therefore, there is high medical need for drugs which lower the incidence of sudden death and have an effect on other risk factors such as depression. OMACOR[registered], a pharmaceutical preparation of highly purified and concentrated [OMEGA]-3 polyunsaturated acids, may present such a drug. It lowers the incidence of sudden death in patients with myocardial infarction and decreases depression. This publication focuses on the effect of [OMEGA]-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on different risk factors in patients with cardiovascular disease. In addition, aspects of prevention of cardiovascular disease, risk factors and pharmacokinetics of [OMEGA]-3 fatty acids ethyl esters are considered. 185pp.

Garebian, Keith
Christopher Newton has placed the Shaw Festival firmly on the map world-class theatre. His best Shavian productions are revolutionary re-interpretations of plays that are normally treated as Edwardian period pieces or didactic entertainments. In this first full-length study of Newton, critic Keith Garebian shows how the pairing of Shaw and Newton, that once seemed 'not bloody likely' has become one of the most exciting enterprises in Canadian theatre, with startling results. The book begins with a biographical section that sketches some of the most pervasive influences on Newton's artistic sensibility, and suggests what has particularly inspired his ever-growing fascination with Shaw. Successive chapters document Newton's concept of Shaw as a surrealist, and contain detailed descriptions of productions at Niagara-on-the-Lake from 1980-1990. Among other things, readers are shown a Caesar and Cleopatra set in a Shadow Box; Heartbreak House as a dream-play of the night and anarchy; Major Barbara as a double quest; You Never Can Tell as part comic romance, part farcical metaphor; the metatheatrical suggestions of Man and Super-man; and, a Misalliance as metaphor of a convulsive new age. As Garebian shows, Newton's approach for all its paradoxes, succeeds in making George Bernard Shaw our dynamic contemporary. 164pp. N.B. Slight mark to bottom edge of front cover.

This volume contains the proceedings of the William Harvey Conference held in London, 10-11 October, 1995. It covers the molecular biology and physiological functions of the cyclo-oxygenase enzymes, as well as the experimental and clinical aspects of the recently discovered inhibitors of the inducible cyclooxygenase. Particular attention has been directed at the discussion of the selectivity of non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs for cyclooxygenase-2 and their propensity to cause gastric and kidney damage. 248pp.

Cotterell, Arthur
The chariot changed the face of ancient warfare. First in Mesopotamia, then in Asia Minor and Egypt, charioteers came to dominate the battlefield. In c. 1286 BC at Kadesh in the Eastern Mediterranean - where the troops of Ramesses II overwhelmed the Hittites - 5,000 chariots were deployed. Its use is recounted in Indian epics and Chinese histories. Homer's Iliad tells of the attack on Troy by Greek charioteers. When Alexander the Great descended into the North Indian plain in early 326BC, he found chariots as well as elephants in the armies ranged against him. After its disappearance from the battlefield, chariot racing attracted hundreds of thousands of spectators. The Emperor Nero drove his own ten-horse chariot in the Olympic Games (he fell out but still won the prize). In Constantinople in AD 352 a three-day riot, ignited by a chariot race, left over 30,000 people dead after the Emperor Justinian had to send in troops to restore order. This unique book traces the rise and fall of the chariot right across the Old World, from Ireland, through Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt, India and China. Illustrated throughout and exploring the chariot's legacy.344pp.

Cheesman, Clive and Williams, Jonathan
Slight crease on back cover.Throughout history, individuals have pictured themselves becoming emperor, king, queen or president. Some have proved successful, others not, while some were pure fantasists. Many produced coins, banknotes, stamps and heraldic devices as proof of the status they claimed. In exploring the issues surrounding political legitimacy, this volume brings together evidence for an amazing variety of would-be sovereigns and phantom countries, rebel states and royal imposters, ranging from ancient to modern times and from the Orient to the New World. The extraordinary personalities, their individual stories and the images they employed are interesting in themselves, but set in a wider context they also demonstrate the changing tradition of pretence and rebellion. The authors examine fundamental concepts of loyalty and group identity in a commentary on the nature of legitimate power and established sovereignty. Their analysis reveals the convenient fictions, collective myths and pseudo-histories inherent even today in the construction and maintenance of a dynasty or modern nation. 192pp.
