Olander, Ann and Farley
Top corner of front board bumped otherwise New. Although Southern California's mountain ranges are only partially wilderness, they bring wonder into our daily lives even from a distance. I wrote this book to remind us of this wonder, to champion the mountains' beauty and inspire their protection. In addition, I wrote this book for people around the world to know a seldom heralded dimension of Southern California. Several years ago I couldn't find such a book to show Swiss friends. Also I've always wanted to show our mountains' beauty to friends and relatives across the country, to come and visit them vicariously. "Call of the Mountains" is for you who can't get to the mountains, but glimpse them from afar and feel their wonder. Last, I wrote this book for you who already know these streams, canyons and peaks. For you, the following pages will jog memories of special places and occasions that are yours alone. My Story - and the stories of people I met - takes us along trails to historic areas, sparkling waterfalls, pristine meadows and the highest peaks. 192pp.

Edited By Harris, Jonathan M; Goodwin, Neva R.
Presenting new and innovative perspectives on macroeconomics at the national and international level, the editors bring together contributions on a wide range of topics including: social, institutional and environmental perspectives; current issues of globalization; transitional economies; inequity; unemployment; national and international debt; and the relationship of macroeconomic policies to the environment. The contributors draw on expertise in a variety of areas to provide insight into debates on macroeconomic policy in the US and Europe, as well as in developing and transitional economies. Themes include: disequilibrium in the macroeconomy - analysis of the roots of instability and crisis in national and global systems; the evolution of macroeconomic institutions to stabilize and guide economic growth; the paradoxes of globalization, the dangers of unrestricted financial flows and the impacts of globalization on national institutional coherence; macro and institutional strategies for the transitional economies of Russia and Eastern Europe; distributional and equity issues, including employment, housing and homelessness; the impact of macroeconomic policy and debt on the environment; and long-term growth and its relationship to well-being and environmental sustainability. 259pp. n.B.

Edited By Friedman,Eli A & L'Esperance Jnr.,Francis A.Jnr
After a decade or longer, approximately one-third of individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes commence a downhill course in which decreasing renal function and failing vision define a renal-retinal syndrome, dominating all aspects of life and presaging early death. Only a generation ago, survival after onset of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in diabetes was limited because rehabilitation was pre-empted by blindness, limb amputation, stroke, and heart disease. By 1998, however, team management has improved the outlook, with preserved sight and return to work and home responsibilities, usually for a decade or longer, following kidney transplantation and laser photocoagulation. Recognition of the critical requirement for blood pressure regulation and metabolic control are central themes in management. In this book, the accomplishments of ophthalmologists, nephrologists, diabetologists, transplant surgeons, and basic scientists are blended into a strategic approach that may be readily applied by all those caring for diabetic patients. Each of 21 presentations suitable for primary care physicians, as well as for subspecialists concerned with macrovascular and microvascular complications of diabetes, is placed in perspective by an introductory editorial analysis. Promising near-term innovative therapies, including insertion of genetically engineered beta cells or polymer-coated islets of Langerhans, interdiction of kinins that promote retinal angiogenesis, and prevention of synthesis of advanced glycosylated endproducts (AGEs), are presented in detail. While comprehensive care of diabetic patients reflects multiple incremental advances which afford major benefit, this text envisions further remarkable changes likely to suppress and possibly entirely prevent the diabetic renal-retinal syndrome.284pp.
