Rock Art and the Prehistory of Atlantic Europe: Signing the Land by Richard Bradley (£33.00)Publisher: Routledge — 1997Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0415165369]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Along the Atlantic seaboard, from Scotland to Spain are numerous rock carvings made 4-5000 years ago, whose interpretation poses a major challenge to the archaeologist. This full-length treatment of the subject is based largely on recent fieldwork and asserts that these carvings should be interpreted as a series of symbolic messages that are shared between monuments, artefacts and natural places in the landscape. The author discusses the cultural setting of the rock carvings and the ways in which they can be interpreted in relation to ancient land use, the creation of ritual monuments and the burial of the dead.”

Law and Sexuality: The Global Arena by Edited by Carl Stychin & Didi Herman (£28.00)Publisher: University of Minnesota Press — 2001Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816638705]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. First published by The Athlone Press in 2000 as Sexuality in the Legal Arena

From the cover: “What does your sexuality have to do with your status as subject, citizen, or spouse? In our global political economy, this question has moved out of the domestic closet and into the world of public policy, human rights, and cultural norms, and is increasingly mediated, negotiated, and legislated in the legal arena. Prominent scholars of law and sexuality on four continents cross disciplines and national boundaries to explore provocative legal and political issues raised by the cultural, social, and political organization of intimate life. Encompassing a broad spectrum of perspectives, from literary analysis and postcolonial studies to feminist, queer, and race theory, their critical, skeptical, and often pragmatic analysis maps the current state of the global intersections between law and sexuality and social change.

Contributors: Heather Brook, Richard Collier, Derek Dalton, Pierre de Vos, Jonathan Goldberg-Hiller, Patrick Hanafin, Emma Henderson, Adrian Howe, Rebecca Johnson, Thomas Kuttner, Derek McGhee, Leslie J. Moran, Wayne Morgan, Oliver Phillips, Jennifer Spruill, and Claire Young.”

Learning and Teaching Social Theory by Edited by Jon Cope, Joyce E. Canaan & Dave Harris (£28.00)Publisher: C-SAP University of Birmingham, — 2006Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 190219134X]Condition: Very Good+. Description: Number 8 in the series. First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The challenges of learning and teaching theory in the social sciences have been a subject of concern and debate since these subjects first emerged as a part of the higher education canon. However, in recent years, far reaching changes inside and outside the university have compounded such concerns in the minds of both students and teachers as higher education is re-organised within the logic of neo-liberalism. The authors in this volume discuss these contemporary contexts and reflect upon the difficulties and opportunities that arise in the classroom and beyond. This monograph enables authors from several nations — the United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand and South Africa — with a shared concern about the state of the university at present and the challenges that this offers for them and their students, to consider how engagement with social theory can help develop the kinds of critical evaluation skills that students will need in the world they enter after graduation. The book therefore represents essential reading for anyone considering how to encourage students and lecturers to consider the relevance of learning and teaching social theory for their appreciation of the world today..”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¾".

Life of the Ancient Egyptians by Eugen Strouhal (£26.00)Publisher: The American University in Cairo Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9774242858]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white with maps. From the cover: “There is a wealth of literature on the kings of ancient Egypt, on the history of their reigns, and on their temples and pyramids. But of the ordinary, hard-working people who left us such awe-inspiring monuments as well as beautiful everyday objects, our knowledge remains hazy. Happily there is plenty of evidence, physical as well as literary and artistic, on which the author of this rare insight into everyday life in ancient Egypt has been able to draw, offering us the fruits of a lifetime of tireless research and fieldwork. He charts the progress of the ancient Egyptian step by step from cradle to grave, from children’s games to adult entertainment, from courtship to marriage and sometimes to divorce. The position of women in society is discussed in detail, as is fashion and the care of the body. The author describes the work of farmers, fishermen, and hunters, of artisans and builders, artists and scribes, priests and healers. In the closing chapter we follow the ancient Egyptian on the arduous last journey to the gates of the other world.

Few studies of ancient Egypt cover so broad a scope. The text is complemented by many illustrations of artefacts, works of art, and scenes of life in ancient Egypt as recorded in tomb reliefs and paintings and on papyri. Many of Werner Forman’s superb photographs were taken specially for this volume in Egypt and in the great public and private collections.”

Modernity and the State: East, West by Claus Offe (£19.50)Publisher: Polity Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0745616747]Condition: Very Good. Light reading creases to the spine. Lightly rubbed at the tips of the wrappers. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “This volume addresses the problem of how modern societies politically cohere and poses one of the most fundamental questions of contemporary political analysis: how can legitimate authority coexist with effective governing capacity? In addressing this question, Offe draws on a wide variety of material in both political theory and empirical sociology.

The book is divided into four parts. In the first of these, Offe explores general questions concerning the nature and stability of modern societies and critically examines contemporary approaches to political theory. In the second part he examines new developments facing the state and assesses new departures in state theory. In the third part, problems and policy prescriptions which have emerged in connection with developments in Western welfare states are addressed.

In the final part, Offe seeks to illuminate through comparative analysis many of the new questions facing political sociology in the light of the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. The result is a highly original account of developments in contemporary society both in the West and in the East. Modernity and the State will be welcomed by students and scholars in social and political theory, political sociology and East European studies..”

From the cover: “With improvements in communications bringing us into more rapid contact with distant lands, general interest has been aroused in the ways of life of their peoples. In a readable manner the author outlines recent developments in modem social anthropology, and demonstrates its uses in improving international relations. Most of the examples given are drawn from recent field-work, and do not appear in the usual textbooks; so far they have been available only in articles in periodicals. The author has much of interest to say on such controversial subjects as the brain capacities of different races, comparative codes of manners, and the ‘simple way of life of the savage’.”Notes: Size: 7¼" x 4¾".

Heaven's Mirror: Quest for the Lost Civilization by Graham Hancock & Santha Faiia (£17.50)Publisher: Michael Joseph — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0718143329]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, pulled at the head of the upper panel with a slight tear to the top corner of the same. Ding to the spine. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “In Heaven’s Mirror, author Graham Hancock continues the quest begun in his No. 1 international bestseller Fingerprints Of Thf Gods to rediscover the hidden legacy of mankind — the revelation that the cultures we term ancient were, in fact, the heirs to a far older forgotten civilization, and the inheritors of its archaic wisdom…

Working with the photographer Santha Faiia, his wife, Hancock traces a network of sacred sites around the globe on a spectacular voyage of discovery that takes us from the pyramids and temples of ancient Egypt to the enigmatic statues of Easter Island, from the haunting ruins of pre-Columbian America to the splendours of Angkor Wat, in order to crack the code of our lost ancestors. It is an odyssey that leads to sunken monuments and hidden chambers — a journey through myth and magic, and astounding archaeological revelations, that forces us to rethink our entire conception of the origins of civilization.

Much more than a sequel to Fingerprints Of The Gods, Heaven’s Mirror is a plunge into the spirituality of the ancients — a search for the revelation of a secret written in the language of astronomy, and recorded in the very foundations of the holiest sites of antiquity…

A secret which speaks of a mysterious connection between earth and heaven…

A secret which transforms temples into stars and men into gods…

The deepest and darkest secret of our forgotten past.”

On Understanding Japanese Religion by Joseph M. [Mitsuo] Kitagawa (£17.00)Publisher: Princeton: Princeton University Press — 1987Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0691102295]Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: A Later Printing. Contains: Chronological tables; Glossary;

From the cover: “Joseph Kitagawa, one of the founders of the field of history of religions and an eminent scholar of the religions of Japan, published his classic book Religion in Japanese History in 1966. Since then, he has written a number of extremely influential essays that illustrate approaches to the study of Japanese religious phenomena. To date, these essays have remained scattered in various scholarly journals. This book makes available nineteen of these articles, important contributions to our understanding of Japan’s intricate combination of indigenous Shinto, Confucianism, Taoism, the Yin-Yang School, Buddhism, and folk religion. In sections on prehistory, the historic development of Japanese religion, the Shinto tradition, the Buddhist tradition, and the modem phase of the Japanese religious tradition, the author develops a number of valuable methodological approaches. The volume also includes an appendix on Buddhism in America.

Asserting that the study of Japanese religion is more than an umbrella term covering investigations of separate traditions, Professor Kitagawa approaches the subject from an interdisciplinary standpoint. Skilfully combining political, cultural, and social history, he depicts a Japan that seems a microcosm of the religious experience of humankind.”

The Crisis of Indian Planning: Economic Planning in the 1960s by Edited by Paul Streeten & Michael Lipton (£14.00)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with nicks at the spine ends and corners. Price Clipped.Description: Issued under the auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs. From the cover: “Droughts, foreign exchange shortages, political separation, high defence costs — yet India’s planners expect the country to be self-sufficient in food by 1970-1, with farm output up 27 per cent from the 1964-5 level, and industrial production up 78 per cent. The prospects for India’s experiment in democratic planning, forced through crisis to fundamental change, are important far beyond the borders of India.

This book analyses the main aspects of Indian planning in the late 1960s. The introduction suggests that a big shift of emphasis is needed: from aggregate targets to comparative analysis of local situations within India. The book then considers the effects on the planning process of India’s federal democracy. The next four chapters assess planning and prospects in industry, agriculture, overhead capital, and energy. The human factor is then considered, with discussions of education and health, the family planning programme, and the contribution of social anthropology to Indian planning. The next group of chapters looks at three external constraints on Indian development: poor trade prospects, scarcity of aid, and big defence needs. The book closes with a statistical record of Indian planning and achievement.

Each main aspect of Indian planning, then, is analysed by an expert in the respective field. The book is not just a symposium; each author led a discussion of his chapter in April 1967, at a conference in Palmer, Sussex. The conference was sponsored by the Institute of Development Studies, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, and Sussex University, and was attended by political scientists, anthropologists, businessmen, officials, planners, and economists from India and Britain. The chapters have been extensively revised in the light of the discussion and of events since April 1967.”

Oceans by Paul Rose & Anne Laking (£12.50)Publisher: London: BBC Books — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The oceans are the single most important feature of our planet. They shape our climate, our culture and our future. But despite this, their depths have remained a mysterious and unchartered expanse on our maps.

This book, which accompanies a major BBC television series, draws on the most exciting stories from the fields of sub-aquatic archaeology, geology, marine biology and anthropology to reveal an astonishing landscape of forgotten shipwrecks, submerged volcanoes and hidden caves.

For Oceans, explorer Paul Rose and his team of expert divers filmed fluorescence in Red Sea corals for the very first time and explored the undisturbed waters of the ‘Black Hole’ off the Bahamas. They witnessed rarely seen behaviour in sperm whales in the Sea of Cortez and discovered a potentially unknown species below the Arctic pack ice. Undertaking thrilling and often dangerous dives, Paul and his team show why the oceans are so important to human existence, and the possible consequences of climate change on their delicate balance.

Beautifully illustrated with more than 150 colour photographs, Oceans unravels the mysteries of the deep and provides illuminating insights into this vast undersea domain.”

Whatever Happened to the Human Race by Francis A. Schaeffer; C. Everett Koop; (£12.50)Publisher: Marshall, Morgan & Scott — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 055100830X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with the laminate lifting slightly in occasional places. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Today choices are being made that undermine the right to life, the basic human right, this book examines this issue and shows how abortion, infanticide and the threat of euthanasia are growing at an alarming rate. It demonstrates how this destruction of human life is being sanctioned on an ever increasing scale, by the law, by parents and by silent Christians. It exposes how human life has been cheapened, as laws based on God’s standards have been replaced by laws based on man’s standards. Humanism is shown to be bankrupt. The book argues for a return to the high view of man, based on man being made in the image of God. It insists that there must be protest and action in the same way as Christians in the nineteenth century fought for the dignity of man in their battle against slavery. At the same time it emphasises the need for caring, practical alternatives to help, for example, women with unwanted pregnancies.”Notes: Size: 10" x 7¾". 212 pages.

Human Nature: Fact and Fiction by Edited by Robin Headlam Wells & Johnjoe McFadden (£11.50)Publisher: Continuum — 2006Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0826485464]Condition: Near Fine.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “What do we mean by ‘human nature’? Is there a genetically determined core of humanity that unites us all as members of a single species? Or is the thing we call human nature a social construct? And how do we explain the mystery of human creativity? Do great writers have an intuitive grasp of what makes human beings tick, or are they merely the mouthpiece of contemporary culture? It has been claimed that ‘the greatest enterprise of the mind has always been and always will be the attempted linkage of the sciences and humanities’ (Edward O. Wilson). This ground-breaking book marks the beginning of a new dialogue between the two. Rather than focusing on the division between what C.P. Snow called ‘the two cultures’, it shows that the sciences and humanities have much to learn from each other. Points of disagreement remain. Yet there is in this volume a genuine attempt to bridge the gulf that has traditionally separated the sciences and humanities and to reach a better understanding of what it means to be human. Human Nature — Fact and Fiction is a major new contribution to the debate on human nature, set to be required reading for anyone with a background in either the arts or the sciences who is interested in understanding what defines us as human beings — in what we are, and why.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by A.

The European Tribe by Caryl Phillips (£11.50)Publisher: Faber & Faber — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0571147135]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper slightly ruffled at the edges. Pages very gently age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “In 1984, the novelist Caryl Phillips set off on a journey across Europe in an attempt, as he put it, ‘to come to terms with what it is like to feel both of, and not of, Europe’.

To clarify this fundamental question of identity, Phillips visited almost every European country from Spam to the Soviet Union. In a series of fascinating snapshots, part travelogue, part autobiography, part polemic — he gives us a moving and subtle account of a journey of the heart and mind as well as of Europe today.

The European Tribe covers topics as diverse as the English on the Costa del Sol, Othello’s Venice, racialism in Mitterrand’s France, Irish missions to Nigeria, and black power in Moscow. It is an important and challenging statement from one of Britain’s most urgent new voices.”

Maya Monuments by Nigel Hughes (£10.50)Publisher: Antique Collectors' Club — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1851492941]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with slight fraying to the top corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Drawings; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Maya Monuments is a record of forty representative Maya buildings and sculpted monoliths, selected by the author to show the stylistic range of the Classic and Post classic periods of that remarkable and accomplished civilization. All are beautiful in their context, which is generally one of elegiac abandonment to the encroachments of nature. Resources are insufficient these days to protect them all, and many are now suffering from exposure to the elements, from ransacking and undermining by looters, and, in some cases, from the new pressures of tourism.

The book contains forty-one illustrations in colour by the author and numerous minor drawings taken from his site sketch books. The original paintings are large watercolours in the tradition of nineteenth century travelling artists such as Lear in the Levant, Roberts in Egypt and Palestine, the Daniells in India and, of course, Frederick Catherwood whose most celebrated work was in Mexico and Central America. The paintings in this volume have been exhibited to great acclaim at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico and in New York. The text consists of an introduction, thirty short essays on the culture, economy, beliefs and government of the ancient Maya, with an emphasis on the time of their greatest artistic flowering, and an epilogue. The paintings took five years to complete and the text contains many original observations and deductions arrived at during the author’s travels and studies.”

Culture and Society in Britain 1850-1890: A Source Book of Contemporary Writings by Edited by J. M. Golby (£9.50)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 1992Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0198711123]Condition: Very Good. Light reading creases to the spine. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Corrected reprint. From the cover: “In 1850 Britain was the most prosperous and industrially advanced country in the world. There were those, including the organizers of the Great Exhibition, who saw no reason why Britain should not maintain her dominance as long as the new advances in scientific knowledge were applied increasingly to all industries and the nation’s work force remained industrious. This confidence was not shared by all. Despite material advances, poverty had not been eliminated; the new industrial processes and the resulting division of labour had made jobs monotonous and, some felt, dehumanizing. The supporters of Ruskin also contended that the use of the new mechanical techniques debased art by encouraging ornateness at the expense of beauty. The contemporary writings offered in this anthology reflect these concerns and vividly convey a sense of mid-Victorian society and the changes undergone by Britain during these forty years. Culture and Society in Britain 1850-1890 approaches the period through the arts (high and popular), philosophy, religion, and history (social and political), in a way that will appeal to the general reader as well as to a wide range of students, including those following the Open University Arts Foundation course.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Number 37 in the series. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Established in 1947, the UBC Museum of Anthropology moved into its present location in May 1976.

The Museum of Anthropology’s collections include both archaeological material and ethnographic objects from around the world. MOA is best known for its collections from the aboriginal peoples of coastal British Columbia. The large red cedar ‘Ksan Doors, Great Hall of massive carvings, and famous The Raven and the First Men sculpture by Bill Reid are a few highlights. The Museum also houses the Koerner Ceramics Gallery, a unique collection of European ceramics, and collections of Inuit sculpture, Greek and Roman antiquities, and Asian arts. MOA’s Visible Storage Galleries present more than 15,000 objects from around the world for exploration by students, researchers and the public.

Health and Wellbeing: A Reader by Alan Beattie; Marjorie Gott; Linda Jones; Moyra Sidell; (£9.50)Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0333587170]Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Light reading creases to the spine. Text bright and tight.Description: Reprint [1993]. From the cover: “This volume chronicles a growing debate about health and wellbeing. Some new voices speak for lay experiences and values. Other new voices are health professionals seeking to challenge dominant medical perspectives from within.

Competing perspectives on health are shown in familiar areas of everyday life, focusing on the body, the home and the workplace. Conflicts about health are revealed in wider debates in social planning and policy-making, specifically in the marketing of lifestyles and in transport policies. Speculations on ‘alternative futures’ give us new horizons for health and show that prospects for health are bound up with political, economic and cultural wellbeing.

The book has been developed as a reader to accompany a new Open University second-level course, Health and Wellbeing. It will be an invaluable resource for all those engaged in health and welfare work, as professionals, students, volunteers or campaigners.”

Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping by Judith Levine (£9.50)Publisher: Free Press — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0743269357]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Reprint. From the cover: “The idea occurs to me, as so many desperate resolutions do, during the holiday season. I have maxed out the Visa, moved on to the Citibank debit card, and am tapping the ATM like an Iraqi guerrilla pulling crude from the pipeline. Convinced I am picking up no more than the occasional trinket… this atheist Grinch has managed to scatter $1,001 across New York City and the World Wide Web. And so, disgusted with the commerce in everything from pet cloning to patriotism, panicked over the fate of her finances and that of the trash-strewn earth, Judith Levine enlists her partner, Paul, in a radical experiment — to forgo all but the most necessary purchases for an entire year. Without consumer goods and experiences, Judith and Paul pursue their careers, nurture relationships, and try to keep their sanity, their identities, and their sense of humor intact. Tracking their progress — and inevitable lapses — Levine contemplates need and desire, scarcity and security, consumerism and citizenship. She asks the Big Questions: Can the economy survive without shopping? Are Q-tips necessary? Not Buying It is no primer on the simple life and how to live it. It’s the confessions of a woman any reader can identify with: someone who can’t live without French roast coffee or SmartWool socks but who has had it up to here with overconsumption and its effects on the earth and everyone who dwells there. The book will have readers discussing how and why they, too, might survive without shopping.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 273 pages.

A Nation in Waiting: Indonesia in the 1990s by Adam Schwarz (£8.00)Publisher: Allen & Unwin — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1863736352]Condition: Good. Wrappers unevenly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this, paperback, edition.

From the cover: “Spanning a wide variety of contemporary issues, this text offers a detailed glimpse of one of the world’s largest and least understood nations. It chronicles the economic development Indonesia has enjoyed under the 27-year leadership of President Soeharto, as well as the difficult challenges which lie ahead. Using first-hand information, the author gives life to the heated debates on economic policy, corruption and the controversial role of ethnic-Chinese entrepreneurs. The book analyzes the political demands of Indonesia’s Muslim community, the mishandled incorporation of East Timor, the emerging debate on human rights, and the thorny problem of arranging a smooth transition of power. The underlying theme is the widening gap between an increasingly modernized economy and a rigid political system that is struggling to keep up with the times.”

Dear Girl: The Diaries and Letters of Two Working Women, 1897-1917 by Tierl Thompson (£8.00)Publisher: The Women's Press — 1987Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0704340267]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition.

From the cover: “This unique record of a friendship takes us to the heart of early 20th century feminism in Britain, viewing what has been regarded as an exclusively middle-class movement through the eyes of two working women, whose enthusiastic experiments with sex, socialism and feminism will be irresistibly familiar to modern readers.

Ruth Slate was a clerk in a grocery firm in the City, Eva Slawson a legal secretary from Walthamstow. They met in 1902, and formed a loving friendship which Ruth called ‘the foundation of my life’. The letters and diaries they wrote over twenty years provide a first hand account of some of the great suffrage rallies, of leaders like Christabel Pankhurst and Charlotte Despard. They reveal a gradual disenchantment with orthodox religion and a commitment to pacifism which grew during World War I. Above all they show the valiant efforts of Ruth and Eva, despite poverty, sickness and loss, to respond and contribute to the great issues of their time.”
