Phillips, Anne
Democracy is the central political issue of our age, yet debates over its nature and goals rarely engage with feminist concerns. Now that women have the right to vote, they are thought to present no special problems of their own. But despite the seemingly gender neutral categories of individual or citizen, democratic theory and practice continues to privilege the male. This book reconsiders dominant strands in democratic thinking focusing on liberal democracy, participatory democracy, and twentieth century versions of civic republicanism and approaches these from a feminist perspective. Anne Phillips explores the under representation of women in politics, the crucial relationship between public and private spheres, and the lessons of the contemporary women's movement as an experience in participatory democracy. 183pp. N.B.

"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.

This text contains papers from members of the Italian Group for the Study of Liver Cirrhosis and Viral Hepatitis, formed in 1980 on the basis of recognition and financial support from the Italian Ministry of the University. The primary initiative of the group is to combine experimental and clinical approaches in the study of liver pathophysiology. We have gathered specific experiences of all the centers included in the national program. Each group was required to present an update in its own field of research, rather than specific or recently obtained results which could have been reported only in relationship with data already published by others. This volume affirms the specific competence of all the participants and summarizes the most important updates in liver pathophysiology. The volume is divided into 5 sections dealing with different aspects of liver pathophysiology. Many contributions focus on the pathophysiology of liver injury and on clinical and pathogenetic aspects of hepatitis C virus infection, which today are representative of emergent fields. Other important aspects include the pathophysiology of liver cancer and clinical and therapeutic approaches in liver cirrhosis.336pp.
