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

Singer, Linda
The emergence of AIDS in contemporary culture has not only produced a vast discourse on the disease but has provoked an anxious proliferation of sites of erotic danger. In Erotic Welfare , Linda Singer argues that we are currently living in an "age of epidemic", fueled by a "panic logic" in which contemporary discourse on sexuality and on a variety of social problems - teenage pregnancy, prostitution, and drug addiction, have come to replicate the discourse of contagion. Singer traces the effects of epidemic on the growth of regulatory mechanisms for the control of sexuality, and explores the ways this development has affected women's efforts to secure reproductive freedom; the construction of femininity within the media; and efforts to displace the hegemony of the nuclear family in the cultural imaginary. Her work forms a trenchant critique of sexuality in an age of discipline, where bodies and their pleasures have become dense sites of regulatory power. 210pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Edges of covers rubbed. Head and tail of spine rubbed.

Windsor, Philip; Edited By Berdal, Mats
Philip Windsor (1935-2000) is widely acknowledged to have been among the brightest and most penetrating of thinkers in International Relations. This book brings together some of his most exciting and stimulating essays, covering many of the classic and most enduring issues in International Relations: the causes of wars; intervention and the use of force; the regulation of conflict; human rights and the tensions between order and justice. Windor's philosophical bias, together with his elegant prose and sheer breadth of knowledge, gave an underlying coherence and unity to all his writings. The essays include brilliant essays on East-West relations during the Cold War, arms control, Clausewitz's contribution to strategic thought, Henry Kissinger's scholarly contribution and the place of human rights and cultural dialogue in international politics. 246pp.
