Candell-Riera, J and Ortega-Alcalde D. (Editors)
This book, which is based on the experience of a single hospital team, encompasses major issues in nuclear cardiology with a clinical orientation. It lays particular emphasis on everyday clinical problems and situations which particularly address technical, physical or experimental advances. There are three parts: the first is a review of technical and procedural issues; in the second the major clinical conditions in which nuclear cardiology techniques have an application are reviewed, with a critical appraisal of their uses; and the third part provides an overview of the statistical and epidemiological fundamentals which are relevant for a proper understanding and evaluation of the results of nuclear studies. The book is addressed to all cardiologists and nuclear medicine specialists. Faint marks to boards but otherwise like new. 401pp.

Wertz, Dorothy C.; Fletcher, John C.
Dorothy Wertz and John Fletcher pioneered the first international study of ethical and social issues in genetics in 18 nations. This book reports and discusses their second and more representative study in 36 nations. The survey focused on actual situations that occur in the practice of medical genetics, presented as case vignettes that can also be used in teaching and policy discussion. Among the issues discussed are privacy, prenatal diagnosis, patient autonomy, directiveness in counseling, sex selection, forensic DNA banking, "genetic discrimination," and "eugenics". This is Dorothy Wertz's final book, as she died in April, 2003. It is a one of a kind cross-cultural study of complex ethical issues in the uses of genetic information. No one else has attempted to look at the international aspects of medical genetics on such a broad scale. The results provide a resource for discussion both within and among nations. Much bioethical and policy discussion now occurs in an information vacuum. The survey showed that what people would do, and their reasons for doing it, differed considerably from what ethicists think they "should" do. Many will be surprised at the results, especially in nations where bioethical discussion is just beginning. "Genetics and Ethics in Global Perspective" is of interest to medical geneticists, genetic counselors, social scientists and anthropologists who study cross-cultural issues, bioethicists and bioethics centers and health policy makers.474pp.

Edited By Butler,Francis
The British Institute of Human Rights has long argued the case for incorporation of the European Convention of Human Rights into UK law. But how does the Human Rights Act achieve this and what changes will it make to the legal, social and political landscape? This book analyzes the historical and political imperatives behind evolving human rights legislation and provides a detailed examination of the interpretative record of the judiciary so far. The mechanics of implementation of the Act are explored in detail: who has rights, who has responsibilities and how these are enforced. There is in-depth analysis of three specific areas affected by the new legislation: criminal justice, equality and employment, and disputes within families. In each case, the potential in the Human Rights Act, assisted by Strasbourg decisions and other international jurisprudence, is tested against the prevailing position under domestic law. Finally, there is reflection on the UK's other international human rights commitments and scrutiny of governmental compliance with them. With contributions from leading human rights lawyers, jurists and thinkers, this book deconstructs the Human Rights Act and explains its meaning and significance.260pp.

Bronner, Stephen Eric
A collaboration of more than 45 thinkers who form the "canon" of contemporary political thought--from John Dewey and Walter Benjamin to Malcolm X and Judith Butler.

Designed for undergraduate and graduate students, this volume includes essays by major figures like Hannah Arendt, Simone de Beauvoir, Sir Isaiah Berlin, John Dewey, W.E.B. Dubois, Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault, Antonio Gramsci, V.I. Lenin, Jurgen Habermas, Adolph Hitler and others. Its range and innovative character will assuredly make this anthology the major primary work in political theory for many years to come. 415pp. N.B. Corners slightly bumped.
