"Water in the Middle East" presents historical and cross-cultural perspectives on water and conflict, prospects for future cooperation in the water arena among Middle Eastern countries, the political economy of water and technical solutions to water shortages in the Jordan Valley, and the relationships among water, agriculture, and environmental sustainability. Through case studies and essays, natural and social scientific water experts from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and the United States examine: The role of water in Middle East conflicts and the possibility of regional solutions to water scarcity requiring cooperation among states; Long-term prospects of various aquifers and other fresh-water sources, including desalination; current and future environmental deterioration of water resources; Breakthroughs and developments increasing regional agricultural productivity, depending less on high-quality waters while turning to lower quality resources, such as recycled and brackish waters; alternatives to current water-usage patterns, particularly with regard to agriculture and the possibility of redirecting water to tourism and other economic sectors. While this book highlights the complexities pertaining to regional water scarcity and inequitable distribution, the contributors offer no definitive conclusions or facile solutions; yet there is a broad consensus that regional solutions to maximize water resources must be pursued even as desalination becomes more viable both from technical/economic standpoints. The continuing deterioration of existing water supplies in terms of quantity and quality mandate that any solution must be achieved within a political/social framework of peace, enlightened economic policies, and the application of technical solutions that take due account of environmental concerns.249pp.

Edited By Pantel,Klaus
Distant metastases are the main cause of cancer-related death. The onset of the metastatic process can now be assessed in cancer patients by the use of immunocytochemical and molecular methods that allow the identification of disseminated carcinoma cells in regional lymph nodes, peripheral blood or distant organs. There is increasing evidence that the detection and characterization of tumor cells present in bone marrow or peripheral blood can provide clinically important information. In this book, leading experts in the area of micrometastasis research provide an overview that summarizes the current state of research on micrometastatic disease in patients with solid tumors. In each chapter, the technical aspect as well as clinical relevance of micrometastasis detection is discussed. The book addresses basic researchers as well as clinicians involved in the treatment of cancer patients.189pp.

Herschel, Wayne; Lederer, Birgitt
Wayne Herschel, in a culmination of 15 years of research on archaeo-astronomy, has unravelled an extraordinary secret. His journey begins in Egypt discovering that in all probability, all 50 of the pyramids of Lower Egypt represent a grand star map of the brightest stars forming a 360 degree circuit of constellations along the edge of the Milky Way. Even more importantly, the star map denotes the proverbial X that marks the spot. He also identifies the origins of a human blueprint code within the star map. In its context it claims cryptically that our human lineage is associated with what appears to be another nearby Sun-like star system. The human blueprint emerges at other ancient sites. The same star pattern found in Egypt is also found at Stonehenge, Tikal, and Angkor Wat when their nearby monuments are included. The earliest human cave paintings at Lascaux, the Sumerians and the Incas, as do many other ancient civilisations around the world, all appear to emulate the very same star secret with great obsession. In every instance it is their ultimate monument or an inscription that reveres the importance of one nearby Sun-like star. This star is in Taurus, the bull of the heavens, and the ancients passionately worshiped it as the place of their gods. Just when you think you have seen it all, the so-called pyramid ruins on the planet Mars reveal the unthinkable. This full-colour glossy book takes the reader on a riveting journey from one clue to the next, proving its theories at the hands of a whole array of forgotten ancient texts and artefacts. 292pp. N.B. Slight crease to foredge of front cover.

Fairlamb, Horace L.
The postmodern debate has been heavily influenced by often contradictory conclusions about the foundations of knowledge: hermeneutics challenges epistemology, politics challenges science, identity theory challenges critical theory, pragmatism challenges formalism, and so on. Horace Fairlamb contends that philosophy's foundationist quest has usually been misconceived as a choice between a 'super-science' and theoretical anarchy. Through an examination of the history of foundationism, and detailed analysis of the work of leading theorists including Fish, Foucault, Derrida, Gadamer and Habermas, Dr Fairlamb argues for a less reductive and less arbitrary conception of knowledge and meaning. The result is a sophisticated critique of contemporary theory with implications for philosophers as well as literary theorists, and an important contribution to the re-evaluation of theoretical discourse. 271pp. N.B Previous owners inscription to ffep. Slight crease to front cover.
