Biegman, Niek
To date, Nicolaas (Niek) Biegman has published nine photo books, all concerned with people: in the streets of Amsterdam, New York, Egypt and Haiti, performing Sufi rituals in Egypt, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Syria, oil wrestling in Macedonia and the painter Rein Dool. His work has been exhibited in Aleppo, Amsterdam, Cairo, Paris, Rotterdam, Skopje and Zagreb. This tenth book is the result of four years of walking and cycling around Amsterdam's streets and canals while mainly looking upward. Up there are the gables topped with exuberant wigs that are the trade mark of the city. The stone wigs contain the main living elements to be found in these photos: gods, dolphins, dogs, and lions. Additionally, the houses themselves show a human face to whoever wishes to see it. Biegman presents them as parts of the urban landscape, which attracts millions of visitors from all over the world, every year. Eventually, the visitors go home again. This book may help them to remember Amsterdam's peculiar architecture along with the canals and the streets where they discovered it. 133pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.

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.

Medland, A. J.
This text explores the use of computer-aided design (CAD) techniques in the solution of mechanical engineering problems. The numerous applications presented, provide the basis for a broad theory covering the creation and application of CAD systems in practice. This work has led to the generation of a more general approach to design theory. The second edition contains two new chapters covering the research and application of constraint modelling theory that arose directly from the work presented in the first edition. The book's general approach covers all aspects of mechanical design ranging from the design and control of assemblies to the remote operation of coordinate measuring machines via a CAD system. This book should be of interest to graduate engineers, designers, postgraduate students and research engineers. 248pp.Slight creasing to first few pages.

Edited By Lembcke,B.;Kruis,W. And Sartor,R.B.
This book, composed of the proceedings of Falk Symposium 98 held in Titisee, Germany, 25-26 May 1997, provides an analysis of the field of extra-intestinal manifestations of IBD, which gastroenterologists frequently see, but which require close contact with other subspecialities. The basic understanding of the pathophysiology of extraintestinal manifestations requires upgrading, based on recent advances in animal models or clinical investigation. While the intestinal manifestations of IBD are increasingly well characterized, the extraintestinal facets of IBD currently are best understood on the basis of sophisticated clinical description, thorough investigation and an excellent clinical standing. Modern techniques in immunology, microbiology, pathobiochemistry and new horizons in imaging methods as well as in surgery, however, have substantially contributed to this knowledge, and the book should therefore foster a mutual exchange between the basic or theoretical disciplines and clinicians, including a variety of different subspecialities in order to stimulate clinical and theoretical research topics. Accordingly, the book embraces both aspects: current knowledge on extraintestinal manifestations of IBD, as well as a definition of objectives and a path for future steps in research. 388pp.N.B.Fading to d/j spine.
