Subject: Ecology and Empire

Subscribers to ISHPSB-L might be interested to know that Edinburgh
University Press in Scotland has just published a new book called _Ecology
and Empire:  The Environmental History of Settler Societies_, edited by
Tom Griffiths and Libby Robin.

_Ecology and Empire_ examines the relationship between the expansion of
empire and the environmental experience of the extra-European world.  For
the first time it moves the debate beyond the North American frontier by
comparing the experience of settler societies in Australia, South Africa
and Latin America.  From Australian water management and the crisis of
deforestation in Latin America, to beef farming in the Transvaal, this
topical book provides a broad comparative historical approach to the
impact of humankind on the ecological systems on which settler societies
base their livelihood.

If you are teaching a relevant course with at least 12 students, we will
happily send you an inspection copy of this book.  Email your details,
including course name, number of students, and course level to

Subject: Physical Theory in Biology

We are pleased to announce the publication of the above-mentioned book
which probe into the physics of life and why it matters.

The book is a scientific adventure in which biological understanding is
enriched by physical theory without losing its own inherent traditions
and perspectives. The book explores organic complexity and
self-organization through research applications to embryology, cell
biology, behavioral neuroscience, and evolution.

The book is suitable for physical scientists, biologists, engineers,
applied mathematicians and philosophers.

We are always eager to bring the book to the knowledge of more
researchers and academics and would like you to help. Should you have any
mailing lists or contacts to whom we might be able to send our
information to, please kindly send them to us. Also, should you know or
attend any good conferences at which we could promote our book, please do
let us know.

In addition, you might want to purchase a copy of this book for your own
reference. Please do not hesitate to contact me at [log in to unmask]

Thank you for your kind assistance and we look forward to hearing from
you soon.

Yours sincerely

Er Bee Eng
Marketing Executive

Available by e-mail - "LETTER TO MOTHER ** about the age of the earth".
A 'tract' describing the geology and geomorphology of the Niagara gorge
and environs. From the succession of events - erosion of the gorge using
an erosion rate by the falls of one metre per year, the erosion and
filling of the buried St.David's gorge, the bedrock exposed in the gorge
walls, and the thickness of sedimentary rock encountered by drilling into
the subsurface - the logical conclusion is reached that EARTH IS OLD.

_Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences_:

_Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences_
is a new journal whose first issue will be published at the beginning of
1998.  The journal will be devoted to historical, sociological,
philosophical and ethical aspects of the life and environmental sciences,
of the sciences of mind and behaviour, and of the medical and biomedical
sciences and technologies.  The period covered will be from the middle of
the nineteenth century (the time of the so-called "laboratory revolution"
in medicine and the life sciences) to the present.

The editorial policy will be in line with the policy of the parent
journal, _Studies in History and Philosophy of Science_: contributions
will be drawn from a wide range of countries and cultural traditions; we
shall encourage both specialist articles, and articles combining
historical, philosophical, and sociological approaches; and we shall
favour works of interest to scientists and medics as well as to
specialists in the history, philosophy and sociology of the sciences.  The
table of contents of _Studies in History and Philosophy of Science_ is
available at the Elsevier Science Ltd website at the following address:

The editors are seeking original English language articles in the field of
the new journal.  For these the word limit is c. 10,000.  They would also
welcome proposals for 3-4000 word essay-reviews.

Prospective authors should submit copies of papers in duplicate, typed and
double-spaced (including quotations and footnotes) on quarto or A4 paper.
They should retain a copy for the purpose of checking proofs.
Illustrations are encouraged; authors should be prepared, if their paper
is accepted, to supply good quality copies of any illustration and any
necessary permissions for reproduction of copyright material.  All
articles and volunteered essay-reviews will be blind refereed.

Contributions and proposals should be sent to Dr Marina Frasca-Spada,
Associate Editor, _Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and
Biomedical Sciences_, Department of History and Philosophy of Science,
University of Cambridge, Free School Lane, Cambridge CB2 3RH, U.K., email
