Comparison of type I and type II diabetes : similarities and dissimilarities in etiology, pathogenesis, and complications by Mladen Vranic( Book )
6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 253 libraries worldwide
Five years ago, a new system of classification of the various types of diabetes was proposed. This publication provides an inte grated picture of the latest information on the similarities and dissimilarites of two types of diabetes. It contains contributions from morphologists, physiologists, biochemists, immunologists, pathologists, geneticists, clinicians and epidemiologists. In the first section, the basis for the present classification and its limitations are discussed. In addition, there is a discussion of gestational diabetes and heterogeneity of some sub-classes of diabetes. The next section deals with genetics and immunology. The third section discusses abnormalities of insulin secretion and act ion on both the receptor and post ... receptor levels. The role of gastrointestinal peptides in Type I and Type II diabetes is also considered. In the last section, both types of diabetes are compared with respect to diabetic complications. The closing sec tion summarizes the present status and offers a stimulating view of future development. We hope that this book will be a useful source of information for both researchers and practicing clinicians. M. Vranic G. steiner C.H.

The poetry of thought : from Hellenism to Celan by George Steiner( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
From the distinguished polymath George Steiner comes a profound vision of the inseparability of Western philosophy and its living language. With his hallmark forceful discernment, George Steiner presents in The Poetry of Thought his magnum opus: an examination of more than two millennia of Western culture, staking out his claim for the essential oneness of great thought and great style. Sweeping yet precise, moving from essential detail to bracing illustration, Steiner spans the entire history of Western philosophy as it entwines with literature, finding that, as Sartre stated, in all philosophy there is "a hidden literary prose."--Back cover

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"A fresh, revelatory, golden eagle's eye-view of western literature."--Financial TimesEarly in Grammars of Creation, George Steiner references Plato's maxim that in "all things natural and human, the origin is the most excellent." Creation, he argues, is linguistically fundamental in theology, philosophy, art, music, literature-central, in fact, to our very humanity. Since the Holocaust, however, art has shown a tendency to linger on endings-on sundown instead of sunrise. Asserting that every use of the future tense of the verb "to be" is a negation of mortality, Steiner draws on everything fr
