Humphries, Christopher
This is a book that answers all the ancient philosophical questions: about the good, the right, the true, the nature of mind and soul, divinity, immortality, and free will. It does so not by windy argument, but by the discoveries of the forbidden sciences created by Toynbee, William James, C G Jung, Dr Humphrey, and many others. For every question, there is some realm of experience which can provide an answer, using the essence of scientific method: reproducibility and ruling out the alternatives. If you want to know the solution to the classical problem of evil, don't ask a theologian; ask a mystic, one who has experienced cosmic consciousness, and has seen the pattern that runs through all things. These new sciences are forbidden in the universities, but they flourish, nonetheless, including the study of UFOs. Are they real? Why don't they make contact? How is it possible to jump hundreds of light years in an instant? If ETs are at all common, why didn't they colonise the Earth? The answers to these questions provide the unifying theme of this book, our own journey to the stars by levitation and teleportation. We take our first step to those powers by attaining spiritual maturity. We begin our spiritual evolution by learning the answers to the perennial philosophical questions. If it seems impossible to do all this in 280 pages, then read carefully, for Dr H does not waste words or repeat himself. If you think it impossible in any number of pages, read his chapter on 'The Function of Philosophy'. Dr H knows what that is, while those who scoff are often mere sophists or professional sceptics. 280pp.

Editors Crossfield,Anne and Heemann,Manfred
As the transnational character of banking and finance activities becomes ever more pronounced, there is a clear need for lawyers in the field to become conversant with pertinent legal developments in national jurisdictions other than their own. This book takes a major step towards fulfilling that need. It not only provides essential orientation in the banking law of nine countries in which international financial business is commonly transacted, but also offers experienced, high-quality insights into developments and trends in each of these jurisdictions. With origins in the discussions of the Banking and Finance Commission of the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), this work examines the main areas of banking and finance law across a broad spectrum of areas of law from project finance to financial services regulation. Most of the chapters were originally presented as papers at a conference on "Managing Banking Risks and Combating Fraud" which was jointly organised by IBC and AIJA in London in March 1998. These papers have been updated for inclusion in this work, with the addition of a General Report and a new paper on the United States which takes into account the new Financial Services and Modernization Act (FSMA). Each chapter follows a predetermined outline, so the reader can easily make a comparative analysis across the countries covered. 270pp.

Blinkenberg, Lars
One of the most persistent area of conflict since World-War II, the Indo-Pakistan troubles, "celebrated" their 50th anniversary in the second half of 1997 without there being any solution in sight. Since august 1947, when the two new states were created out of British India, there has been almost uninterrupted conflict between India and Pakistan. On three occasions, in 1947, in 1965 and 1971, it has led to war. The first volume of India-Pakistan is a study of the historical background to the conflict, while the second volume provides analysis of the many structural factors, in particular with regard to the political background in India during the first period of conflict. Differences arose out of a post-colonial settlement which was driven by the old British policy of "Divide and Rule", but which was effected in a special way due to the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru´s and to the suggestions of the Viceroy Mountbatten. This volume also includes interviews with many, politicians and journalists among them, who have been deeply involved in and have an intimate knowledge of the subcontinent and its recent history. 433pp.

Edited By WTO Secretariat
This work brings together the background papers on major service sectors prepared by the WTO Secretariat for the WTO's Council for Trade in Services, in preparation for the new round of negotiations which started in January 2000. Following an analysis of the economic effects of services liberalization, 19 chapters on individual service sectors consider the issues which WTO Members need to consider when framing their negotiating positions and objectives for the new round and preparing their industries for a more open trading environment: the economic importance of the sector; the manner in which it is regulated and traded; problems of definition and classification; and the pattern of commitments undertaken by Member governments under the GATS. Many of the papers also identify prevalent forms of trade restriction or discrimination and suggest areas for further work. In addition, the work includes a detailed description of the structure of services commitments as submitted by WTO Members with respect to the four modes of supply which constitute the definition of trade in services under the GATS. The contributions have been provided by experts of the Trade in Services Division of the WTO Secretariat, with responsibility for the services or subjects in question. 704pp.
