Martin, F. Lester
This book is unique as it presents a concise history of Great Britain as an island kingdom from the reigns of William I in 1066 to that of Queen Elizabeth II in the present century. The preface contains an overview of the hereditary composition of the monarchy, the coronation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, and a listing of the monarchs from 1066 to the present. The introduction contains, a brief history of the four countries - England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - and how they came to be united as the Kingdom of Great Britain. The monarchy is divided into ten houses, or dynasties. A two-fold page layout describes each dynasty from the Normans to the Windsors. Each layout contains: a listing of individual monarchs and dates of reigns; depiction of coins with monarch images; listing of historical events occurring in each reign with marriage information; and two-colour sketches with narrative description of architectural buildings of the period. Thus, there is a 1000 year history of the evolution of architecture from defensive to domestic usage. Signed by author on title page. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped.

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.

Benjamin, Andrew
Best known for his work The Postmodern Condition , Jean-Francois Lyotard is one of the leading figures in contemporary French philosophy. This is the first collection of articles to offer an estimation and critique of his work. While the various chapters deal with different aspects of Lyotard's writings, they are all concerned with the question of judgement. The importance to Lyotard of judgement, and how it is to be judged, is a recurrent theme throughout the entire range of his work. It is particularly evident in his continuing engagement with the work of Kant. Lyotard's own essay, Sensus Communis , which opens this volume, investigates through Kant the presuppositions of judgement. Other essays variously consider how in his writings Lyotard has rendered problematic existing forms of aesthetic, ethical, legal and political judgement. Judging Lyotard is an important collection that will re-introduce Lyotard to English-speaking audiences. 211pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Crease to spine.
