Kirsner,Joseph B.
Few human illnesses are as challenging, medically, scientifically and socio-economically, as the "nonspecific" inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD): ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. They often attack children and young adults and involve all bodily systems as well as the gastrointestinal tract. Originating several centuries ago but essentially diseases of the 20th century, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease have emerged in recent decades as among the more "glamorous" unsolved diseases, presenting unusual opportunities for insightful clinical and investigative study. Many of the prevailing concepts originated during the early and mid 20th century. The purpose of this book is to review these earlier studies and their evolution and to guide investigators and physicians through the challenging clinical and scientific maze of IBD.246pp.

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.

Le Quellec, Jean-Loic
African Rock Art is the only book of its kind to examine this particular form of art throughout Africa. The paintings and engravings discovered on African rocks are amazing works of art that hold clues to understanding the history of humankind. Jean-Loic Le Quellec offers an expert analysis of this primitive art form, supplemented by photographs that capture the originality of prehistoric man's creativity. He divides Africa into four geographical zones: the Sahara, the Horn and East Africa, Southern Africa, and the west and central continent. Each zone is characterized by a unique artistic and representational style, ranging from realism to modern symbolism. The author places the artworks into the context of their discovery by the great explorers and evokes legendary tales to elucidate these enduring traces of prehistory. 212pp. N.B. Small mark to ffep.
