Spalding, David A. E.; Oke, Kevin
144pp.The southern Gulf Islands between Nanaimo and Victoria are among British Columbia's greatest scenic treasures, projecting an appeal so powerful as to make nesomanes (island lovers) of the most unromantic souls. Ranging in size from Saltspring (pop. 12,000) to unoccupied D'arcy, they first began to attract European settlers in 1859 and have been home to a special breed of freedom-loving denizen ever since. Author David Spalding and photographer Kevin Oke are both members of this unique tribe and in this book pay tribute to their chosen region with the sensitivity and insider knowledge only long-time residents can provide.Brimming with gorgeous colour photographs by Oke, "Enchanted Isles" begins with a historic overview detailing how the islands served as a favoured hideaway of some of BC's most distinguished eccentrics. Remittance men and other escapees from British stuffiness form one stream of islanders, but there have been many others. A census of Saltspring in 1895 included a Patagonian, Germans, Portuguese, Hawaiians, Americans, Shetlanders and Scandinavians. Today you may expect to find individuals from virtually anywhere in the world. "Enchanted Isles" showcases local wildlife, captures local character and history and offers insider tips for visitors. It is a spectacular coffee-table book that shows why the Gulf Islands rank with Whistler and the Pacific Rim as one of the most popular tourist destinations in BC.

Edited By Duchmann,R Etc
This book, the proceedings of Falk Symposium 133 on Mechanisms of Intestinal Inflammation: Implications for Therapeutic Intervention in IBD', held in Berlin, Germany, on 10-11 June 2003, summarizes present knowledge in the area of unspecific and specific immune reactions in the gut, recording the gaps in our knowledge and, in particular, presenting the possibilities of targeted intervention. The link to inflammatory bowel diseases - Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis - is always in focus. Chapters by an international panel of basic scientists, clinical researchers and clinicians also record the problems which can originate through today's possible modulation of the immune reaction, setting the basis for review of clinical problems. This book is valuable readings for all scientists and physicians, who, from different perspectives, have an interest in research on IBD and in the clinical management of these diseases. 220pp

Inman, Henry J.
The Rubber Division of the American Chemical society was founded to promote the education, professional growth, and betterment of those individuals associated with the rubber and associated industries. In 2009, the 100th anniversary of the division will be marked. Over those ten decades, the elastomeric profession has undergone innovations, improvements, re-tooling, and re-thinking. This book traces the history of the division and details how it became the forum for the many people who ultimately impacted the advances in the rubber industry. Started by twenty-eight rubber chemists in the early 1900s, the Rubber Division has grown substantially. Its story reflects how people of simple backgrounds, working together, have propelled advances in natural and synthetic rubber materials and applications, polymer engineering and manufacturing, thermoplastics research, and chemistry. "The Rubber Mirror" reveals the heart and spirit of individuals. Their chronicles are primary documents in the history of the Rubber Division. 287pp.

On the occasion of the 80th birthday of Dr. Herbert Falk an international symposium was held in Freiburg, Germany, on 16-17 October 2004. The aim of the meeting was to look back, to assess progress made and to look forward speculating on the development of the field of gastroenterology and hepatology. The symposium was divided into four parts: oesophagus and stomach, liver, pancreaticobiliary tract, and small/large bowel. Internationally renowned speakers contributed to the symposium, many of them also contributed to this book. The organizers of the symposium hope that this volume will maintain the memory of a remarkable meeting in honour of an even more remarkable person. 329pp.
