Baraka, Amiri Imamu; McEvilley, Thomas
In this publication, Thornton Dial's assemblages, as well as his watercolours and drawings, are presented in 128 reproductions - 122 in colour. Using a variety of materials - scrap metal, rope, carpeting, canvas, wood and paint - held together with industrial sealing compound, self-taught contemporary artist Thornton Dial creates powerful, richly textured narrative assemblages. His primary symbol is the tiger, with which he represents the African-American male, notably himself, encountering life. The text offers a multifaceted look at the artist's career. First, art critic Thomas McEvilley, widely known for his groundbreaking writings on post-Modernism, analyzes Dial's work as a watershed in the emergence of alternatives to Western art-historical conventions. Then, noted poet, playwright and essayist Amiri Baraka looks at the phenomenon of the African-American self-taught artist and the cultural tradition from which Dial emerges. Baraka also provides an interpretation of the artist's imagery. The illustrations are accompanied by extended captions that elucidate Dial's thoughts and working processes.160pp.

Edited By Geradin,Damien
The opening of the European postal market to competition is gaining ground as Member States transpose the 1997 postal directive into their national legislation and private postal companies expand their market shares. Moreover, changing regulatory trends (for example, the ever-lower weight and price limits delimitating the scope of the reserved area) encourage further growth in the continuing liberalization of this important network industry. In this informative symposium, 19 practitioners and academics expert in postal sector dynamics present detailed research findings, analysis, and recommendations. The book is based on a conference held in Brussels in February 2001, under the auspices of the Universities of Liege and Ghent and the Free University of Brussels. It provides an in-depth assessment of the challenges presented not only by the prospect of liberalization but also by the transition (of particular significance during the next few years) from the traditional monopoly system. Among the critical matters discussed are the following: terminal dues for international mail; remail provisions; the UPU and WTO constraints on the European postal market; EU Commission decisions and ECJ case law interpreting the postal directive; the effects of EC Treaty Articles 81 and 82 and the Merger Control Regulation; abuse of market power, especially by incumbent public postal operators; the "essential facilities" doctrine; and funding of universal service obligations. In addition, there are specific country reports from five EU Member States (France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and the United Kingdom) and Norway, bearing witness to the diversity of means adopted to implement the postal directive. Business persons and their counsel, regulatory officials, practitioners, and academics interested in the creation of an EU-wide postal market-as well as in the ongoing reliability and improvement of postal service - should find this text valuable. 415pp.

Mohiaddin, R.H.; Longmore, D.B.
Magnetic resonance is a safe, non-invasive technique which can be used to produce high resolution, thin tomographic slices in any chosen plane, or true three-dimensional blocks of information. It has become the method of choice for studying the central nervous system, the vertebral column and many joints, but has not yet gained general acceptance in the cardiovascular system, although there are techniques for overcoming the problems of cardiac movement to produce excellent cardiovascular images. The purpose of this book is to provide the student and radiologist with a reference which can be used to identify the major structures in the body, bearing in mind that in each region a more detailed high-resolution study can usually be obtained by specialized units. The illustrations, each of which is accompanied by an explanatory line drawing, are soft tissue images based on the water content rather than the familiar X-ray shadowgram of mainly hard tissues. 202pp.

Edited By Assmann,G.
The discovery that plasma cholesterol and lipoprotein concentrations are major predictors of risk has been one of the most important factors behind the dramatic and steady reduction in deaths due to coronary heart disease seen over the last 30 years. However, although the significance of lipids is now well understood, we have yet to identify the ideal way to protect patients, particularly those with inherited lipoprotein disorders, against atherosclerosis. New work described in this book sheds light on that important issue, especially on the role of the A apoproteins in HDL. For example, experimental gene transfer studies indicating that apoprotein A-1 may counteract the hyperlipidaemia and atherosclerosis found in apo-E deficiency suggest that we may soon be able to offer prophylaxis to patients whose risk of heart disease is greatly increased by a genetically-determined shortage of HDL.84pp.

Adams, Carl
This book is written to help adventuresome motorcyclists buy, ride, and enjoy dual sport motorcycles, those versatile machines that are equally at home on the street and in the dirt. It is organised into four sections covering motorcycle selection, set-up, riding skills, and specialised activities such as off-road touring and rallies. Several chapters include exercises designed to improve riding technique and impart new skills. Over 250 full-colour photographs illustrate the many options for gear, clothing, and after-market accessories which can add comfort, safety, and convenience to any motorcycle adventure.The book also contains many references and sources to orient enthusiasts to the sometimes overwhelming sea of information that is available. New riders will benefit from the clear explanations of dual sport gear, accessories, and techniques, while experienced riders coming to dual sport from a street riding background will find chapters covering advanced dirt riding skills, GPS navigation, and preparing for multi-day trips. All terms are explained and riding techniques are described in detail. Riders at all levels will gain a broader perspective of the dual sport experience, from which they can begin their journey to new motorcycle adventures. 192pp.
