This volume contains the proceedings of the Falk Workshop on "Bile Acids in Hepatobiliary Disease", which took place at the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) in London, UK, on 29-30 March 1999, and was held in association with the Section of Measurement in Medicine at the RSM. The main interest in bile acid therapy has been recently in cholestatic liver disease. The proceedings of the workshop not only discusses this, but moves on to examine its possible use in alcoholic liver disease, and moves back to re-examine its role in biliary disease. Leading world experts attempt to define its mechanism of action, and the current role of other non-surgical treatments in biliary disease. The physiology and pathogenesis of cholestatic and alcoholic liver disease and cholesterol gallstone disease is also examined. 339pp.

Leckie,Scott Editor
More than one billion people around the world do not have adequate housing. How far does human rights law help to remedy this problem? What measures must governments take to protect people against housing rights violations? What are the strengths and weaknesses of human rights law in the housing area? Is the current law enough, or are new laws necessary? These and many other questions are addressed in the various chapters contained in this volume. While most coverage of economic, social and cultural rights has tended to focus on international standards and principles, this volume examines the more challenging question of how housing rights are implemented at the national and local level. Chapters from recognized housing rights practitioners from Brazil, Canada, India, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria, Philippines, South Africa, the US and elsewhere provide some of the first national-level legal analyses of the implementation of housing rights standards recognized under international law. 314pp.Base of spine slightly marked. Corners of boards bumped.

Hoeppner, Ken
The development of agriculture in Alberta owes much to Arnold W Platt, who set out to plant a seed of positive change. Whether as a plant breeder, an organiser for the Farmers' Union of Alberta, or a commissioner for the McPherson Royal Commission on Transportation, Platt applied his inventive and creative thinking to problems of rural development in twentieth century Alberta. In "The Ordinary Genius", Ken Hoeppner pays homage to the accomplishments of this modest man, whose life's work continues to resonate in farmlands across the Prairies. This detailed and thoroughly researched story will appeal to western history enthusiasts, agriculture specialists and farmers.308pp.

Uno,Kimio and Bartelmus,Peter
The global community is increasingly preoccupied with the concept of sustainability, to the extent that the traditional measure of gross domestic product (GDP) is sometimes giving way to a "green GDP". Many attempts have also been made to measure the degradation of the environment and the depletion of natural resources. This book presents a comprehensive picture of the research issues in the field, based on the experience of many countries with the introduction of integrated environmental and economic statistics, including physical accounting methods for material flows and spatial accounting for land use. Theories on the concept of sustainability are also discussed. The 20 chapters in the book have been written by representatives of international institutions, national statistical offices, research institutes and universities in Europe, the USA, Canada and Asia. N.B.Bottom edge of front board slightly bumped.
