This unique volume records and interprets the revolutionary advances made in the understanding of hypertension during the twentieth century and provides pointers to the future. Many of the contributing authors are prominent participants in the major discoveries related to hypertension. This volume also draws together the different strands in the development of the subject: the scientific and clinical; the North American and European; the technological and the epidemiological. A particular focus is the clinical trial. The editors have encouraged controversial views especially in the criticism directed towards the limitations of meta-analysis, the defects (and virtues) of the currently fashionable large clinical trials, and the sporadic disingenuous interpretation of some trials. This volume of the Handbook of Hypertension series also serves to bring together the key contents and concepts presented in the previous twenty-one volumes. It will set a firm foundation for future volumes that will together continue to provide a major reference work on this important health problem.

Abstract : This big book recounts the march of the giants of 20th century English language jurisprudence, one aiming to bring progress to history by means of a sustained philosophical inquiry over time. My task in this CJLJ Book Review is especially to show, by discussing but a small aspect of each chapter, how valuable Postema's book is for a philosopher of law professionally. It is a story which for many well-practiced jurisprudes could spell, in a word, réanimation. That said: if someone early in the 22nd century writes a history of legal philosophy looking back on the 21st century, Gerald Postema's critical history which looks back on 20th century will surely be counted as one of the major achievements of the 21st—our time. Legal Philosophy in the Twentieth Century: The Common Law World is a brilliant book and, for the rest of us incapable of achieving anything like this (and I mean the rest of us ), it is simply breathtaking.

Postcolonial states and metropolitan societies still grapple today with the divisive and difficult legacies unleashed by settler colonialism. Whether they were settled for trade or geopolitical reasons, these settler communities had in common their shaping of landholding, laws, and race relations in colonies throughout the world. By looking at the detail of settlements in the twentieth century--from European colonial projects in Africa and expansionist efforts by the Japanese in Korea and Manchuria, to the Germans in Poland and the historical trajectories of Israel/Palestine and South Africa--and analyzing the dynamics set in motion by these settlers, the contributors to this volume establish points of comparison to offer a new framework for understanding the character and fate of twentieth-century empires.
