Nielsen, Kai; Edited By Seymour, Michel and Fritsch, Matthias
Kai Nielsen has been the towering figure of Canadian philosophy over the last forty years. In this discussion and appreciation of Nielsen's work, highly respected specialists in the philosophy of religion, philosophical methodology (or metaphilosophy), and moral and political philosophy consider various aspects of his voluminous contributions and, at the same time, provide broad access to current philosophical debates. The volume contains not only twenty original papers on Nielsen's thought, but also his detailed responses to these critical essays. Among the outstanding contributors are Antony Kenny (philosophy and religion), Richard Rorty(methodology/metaphilosophy), Steven Lukes (Marxism), Norman Daniels (global justice), and Kok Chor Tan (nationalism). Despite the wide variety of these themes, Nielsen's body of work and his responses here show that it is possible to develop a systematic approach that links difference areas of philosophy within one perspective. This stimulating collection will thus attract readers in many different specialities. 431pp.

Pearman, Hugh; Whalley, Andrew
The Eden Project is the largest plant enclosure in the world. Its biomes have captured imaginations worldwide and become the visual trademark of a destination that attracted two million visitors in its first year of opening. The biomes are the work of Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners, a practice with an international portfolio including the Waterloo International Terminal and Berlin Stock Exchange. The practice has won over 100 architectural awards for its projects, which are characterized by structural legibility and integrity. This book tells the story of Eden's conception, design and construction and looks to the future of this ever-evolving project. Its carefully chosen photographs and drawings reveal the virtuosity and sublime beauty of the structures, while an authoritative essay places them in the distinguished tradition of the glasshouse. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped. Slight dent to front D/J. Corners of D/J slightly rubbed.119pp.

Edited By Qureshi,Asif H.
Economic activity, Professor Qureshi insists, is a visible manifestation of the human condition. Therefore, the laws that regulate it and develop its norms must be deeply human. International economic law must be ever-vigilant in its efforts to represent the economic needs of all strata of humanity - it must not allow the cultural imperatives of any one group to predominate. To investigate the validity of this deeply-held conviction, in May 2001 Professor Qureshi and the University of Manchester School of Law brought together a conference of major IEL scholars to elicit as broad a diversity of perspectives as possible. This book, grew out of that conference, with contributors and other scholars focusing and augmenting their standpoints in essays that crystallize the critical perspectives from which IEL may be viewed. Issues and topics that arise in the course of the investigation include the following: globalization and its institutions; the survival of the nation-state; the role of the International Court of Justice; sustainable development; developing countries and dispute settlement; developing countries and trade negotiations; regional integration; human rights and the "untouchability" of IEL; and the gender bias of basic IEL institutions and rules. There are also clear presentations of specifically Marxist and Islamic perspectives, and an analysis along lines of "fairness" as developed by Thomas Franck and John Rawls. 338pp.
