The 9th edition of Hockly's insolvency law follows the expanded format of the previous two editions. The basic purpose of the book remains the same: to provide a concise, yet fairly detailed, account of the law of insolvency, winding-up and judicial management. The book aims at a wide readership. For the subject specialist, it provides an update of developments in the law relating to insolvency and winding-up; for students, it is a text for both undergraduate and postgraduate study; and for insolvency practitioners, it may be used as a guide and a quick source of reference. The appendices contain specimen applications, specimen estate accounts, the Insolvency Act, relevant extracts from the Companies Act and the Close Corporations Act, and the Cross-Border Insolvency Act.
A proper grasp of the law of insolvency can be acquired only by reading and digesting a sizeable volume of case law. This text, designed to complement Hockly's Insolvency Law, allows students and practitioners to come to terms with a broad range of insolvency cases.
Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109 CE), in his work Proslogion, originated the "ontological argument" for God's existence, famously arguing that "something than which nothing greater can be conceived," which he identifies with God, must actually exist, for otherwise something greater could indeed be conceived. Some commentators have claimed that although Anselm may not have been conscious of the fact, the Proslogion as well as his Reply to Gaunilo contains passages that constitute a second independent proof: a "modal ontological argument" that concerns the supposed logical necessity of God's existence. Other commentators disagree, countering that the alleged second argument does not stand on its own but presupposes the conclusion of the first. Anselm's Other Argument stakes an original claim in this debate, and takes it further. There is a second a priori argument in Anselm (specifically in the Reply), A. D. Smith contends, but it is not the modal argument past scholars have identified. This second argument surfaces in a number of forms, though always turning on certain deep, interrelated metaphysical issues. It is this form of argument that in fact underlies several of the passages which have been misconstrued as statements of the modal argument. In a book that combines historical research with rigorous philosophical analysis, Smith discusses this argument in detail, finally defending a modification of it that is implicit in Anselm. This "other argument" bears a striking resemblance to one that Duns Scotus would later employ.
In a major contribution to the theory of perception, A. D. Smith presents a truly original defense of direct realism--the view that in perception we are directly aware of things in the physical world.
"The Problem of Perception" offers two arguments against direct realism--one concerning illusion, and one concerning hallucination--that no current theory of perception can adequately rebut. Smith then develops a theory of perception that does succeed in answering these arguments; and because these arguments are the only two that present direct realism with serious problems arising from the nature of perception, direct realism emerges here for the first time as an ultimately tenable position within the philosophy of perception.
At the heart of Smith's theory is a new way of drawing the distinction between perception and sensation, along with an unusual treatment of the nature of objects of hallucination. With in-depth reference to both the analytical and the phenomenological literature on perception, and with telling criticism of alternative views, Smith's groundbreaking work will be of value to philosophers of perception in both the analytical and the phenomenological tradition, as well as to psychologists of perception.

I am A. D. Smith, an auth-I'm sorry but I cannot disclose this information. I've taken a major chance in just revealing my name. They may be watching. They could be anywhere, even as you read this. But I must tell the story as it was told to me. Now would you believe... There are those among us who are not as they appear. Demons walk this earth as mortal men. They are persuading many to join their uprising. The Persuaded have infiltrated every sector of society. Doctors, lawyers, politicians. They all wear the Shadow, and they bear the Mark. But every few generations, God chooses Three to assist Him in battle. Some even say Jesus' inner circle-Peter, James, and John-were the first. The Three are bestowed extraordinary powers beyond belief. The power to See, the power to Hear, the power to Heal, and the power to Fight. They are The Assigned. Tre Turner, Zeek Myers, and Gloria Torres are three young strangers from completely different walks of life until sickness, death, and family secrets find a way to unite them. Their lives are turned upside down as they deal with personal calamity, burgeoning relationships, as well as their newfound Gifts. Will this new Three of Three rise beyond personal anguish and accept their calling as warriors? Or will doubt and temptation slowly consume them? This story must be told. We must-shhh, I hear footsteps approaching, possibly two men. I've said too much...
These volumes present the results of two studies undertaken for the Directorate General of Employment, Social Affairs and Education of the Commission of the European Communities. The aim was to review available data concerning the metabolism of a selection of toxic chemi cals in man and to develop mathematical models representing this meta bolism. Volume 1 is the report from the first study and presents re views of the data for each of the substances and proposes models for their metabolic behaviour. Volume 2 is the report of the second study and contains a review of new data relevant to the development of meta bolic models for each substance. The modelling of uptake and retention by the two major routes of uptake (the respiratory system and the gas trointestinal tract) is also reviewed. The implementation of the models in a computer code is described and results are presented illus trating organ concentrations and rates of excretion for typical regimes of exposure. vi 1 Foreword This report contains the results of a study undertaken by Associated Nuclear Services (ANS) for the Directorate General of Employment, Social Affairs and Education of the Commission of the European Communities (CEC). This study was entitled "Models for the Metabolism of Chemical Carcinogens in Man." vii 2 Summary This report includes results of a review of the metabolism of selected actual and potential human carcinogens and proposals for pharmacokinetic models to represent that metabolism."

This study was entitled "Dynamics of Selected Toxic Materials in Man." vii 2 Summary This report presents results from the second phase of a study on the metabolism of selected actual and potential human carcin ogens. In the first phase of this work a comprehensive review of literature relating to the metabolism of these materials was under taken and pharmacokinetic models were proposed to represent that meta bolism. It was suggested that these models, and the reviews on which they were based, would provide information relevant to the development of monitoring programmes and in the interpretation of dose-response data. In the second phase of the study, attention has been concen trated on the implementation of the models proposed for the various substances reviewed, i.e. arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, lead, nickel, chromium, asbestos, benzene, vinyl chloride monomer, benzidine and its congeners, carbon tetrachloride and methyl iodide. However, this programme has been supplemented by an on-going review of the relevant literature on these substances and a detailed analysis of the applica bili ty of the pharmacokinetic models used for the organs of intake, i.e. the lung and gastrointestinal tract."

Originally published in 1892, this combination mug book/gazetteer was the first of its kind on the state of Virginia. The essays on the history, topography, geology, and natural resources of southwest Virginia were written by "well-known scientists and men of letters, and the facts set forth by them, while in some instances astounding, are correct." The biographical sketches are of "honorable men" from all walks of life. "Here will be found instances of men rising, by individual merit alone, from penury and obscurity to wealth and distinction; of many who, in pride and strength of young manhood, left the farm and the anvil, the lawyer's office and the counting-room, left every trade and profession, and, at their country's call, went forth valiantly to do or die.... Here, also, will be found men whose lives illumine the pages of a nation's history, and whose deeds in war and statesmanship reflect naught but honor upon a noble people - men in whose lives are united the glorious Old South with the unparalleled New."
