To Find A Golden Pony by Amanda Gavin [Clodagh Micaela Gibson Jarvie] (£276.00)Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with corresponding grazing to the dustwrapper. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. A pleasant copy of an uncommon title. Description: From the cover: “This is a pony book with a difference. It deals sensitively with a young girl’s companionship with animals, and how she learns to manage them while at the same time developing self-reliance during a period of delicate readjustment. Jo Garrett is five when her mother dies, and her father wisely sends her away from his Suffolk farm to live with cousins in Sussex. So, until she is ten, she comes under the spell of ponies, caring for them as well as riding them. She then returns to the farm, and her father is pleased to notice what a self-confident child she has become, with definite ideas of her own as to what she wants from life. Jo’s personality is also contrasted with all the others in the story — both human and animal — who come fully alive as individuals in this entertaining account of country life. Finally, Jo’s slow adjustment to the idea of her father’s remarriage is described with understanding and insight..”Notes: Jacket designed by Elisabeth Grant. Illustrated by Elisabeth Grant.

Old Friends, New Enemies: The Royal Navy and the Imperial Japanese Navy: Volume 2: The Pacific War 1942-1945 by Arthur J. Marder, Mark Jacobsen & John Horsfield (£84.00)Publisher: Oxford: Clarendon Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0198201508]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a nick to the head of the upper panel and faded at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendix; Black & White Photographs; Maps; Tables; Portrait to the frontispiece;

From the cover: “This first scholarly account of the Royal Navy in the Pacific War is a companion volume to Arthur Marder’s Old Friends, New Enemies: Strategic Illusions, 1936-1941. Picking up the story at the nadir of British naval fortunes — everywhere weak and naked , in Churchill’s phrase — it examines the Royal Navy’s role in events from 1942 to the Japanese surrender in August 1945.

Drawing on both British and Japanese sources and personal accounts by participants, the authors vividly retell the story of the collapse of Allied defences in the Dutch East Indies, culminating in the Battle of the Java Sea. They recount the attempts of the ‘fighting admiral’, Sir James Somerville, to train his motley fleet of cast-offs into an efficient fighting force in spite of the reluctance of Churchill, who resisted the formation of a full-scale British Pacific Fleet until the 1945 assault on the Ryukyu Islands immediately south of Japan.

Meticulously researched and fully referenced, this unique and absorbing account provides a controversial analysis of the key personalities who shaped events in these momentous years, and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the Pacific War.

The Native Pinewoods of Scotland by H. M. [Henry Marshall] Steven & A. Carlisle (£64.00)Publisher: Edinburgh & London: Oliver & Boyd — 1959Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little fraying at the head of the spine. Blanks a little tanned. Description: Contains: Black & white plates [20]; Maps; Tables; Appendices [2];

From the cover: “The native pinewoods are one of the most important living historical monuments of Scotland. They are a unique survival of the native vegetation with their own distinctive flora and fauna. They are also important for current forestry practice as a reservoir of distinctive strains of Scots pine. This book discusses the native pinewoods from historical, ecological and forestry points of view.

The history of the native pinewoods from late glacial times to the present day is traced, with an outline from archaeological and historical sources showing the impact of man upon the forests of Scotland.

The ecology of the surviving native pine-woods is described in detail. Among the topics dealt with under this heading are: the relationship between the pinewoods and other woodland communities, the tree species and larger shrubs, the field layer communities, age structure, growth and stocking, pathogenic fungi and fauna. The problem of the natural regeneration of the pine is also discussed.

The forester will be particularly interested in the presentation of the results of a detailed investigation into the morphological variations of the pine in the native pinewoods. The different habit or crown types, the bark types, variations in buds, shoots and leaves including internal anatomy, and different cone types are described. This information is of importance to those seeking tree improvement by selective breeding, in this and in other countries.

The authors feel that the preservation of these native pinewoods is of such importance that they make a special plea for the co-operation of owners, both public and private, to this end.”

The Puritan Gift: Triumph, Collapse and Revival of An American Dream by Kenneth Hopper & William Hopper (£53.00)Publisher: I. B. Tauris & Co. — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1850434190]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Where does the Protestant work ethic come from? And how did America achieve such dominance in management for so long?

The Puritan Gift traces the origins and characteristics of an American managerial culture which, over the course of three centuries, turned a handful of small colonies into the greatest economic and political power on earth. It argues that the energy, social mobility, competitiveness and capacity for innovation, all of which lie at the heart of that culture, have their origins in the discipline and ethos of America’s first wave of European immigrants: the Puritans. Drawing lessons from their own extensive experience, the authors warn that, as America distances itself from the core values which underlay its commercial and economic success during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it puts its own future prosperity and security at risk.

The book also explores how American managerial culture has spread throughout the world. In particular it examines the impact of the US occupation of Japan on the social and manufacturing mores of that country and explains how America’s inherited style of management interacted with Japanese traditions.

This is an original exploration of the dramatic and far-reaching consequences of the Puritans’ ‘gift’ to America — the ethos which produced the early success of America and what came to be known as the American dream.”

Japanese Aircraft 1910-41 by Robert C. Mikesh & Shorzoe Abe (£51.00)Publisher: London: Putnam Aeronautical Books — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851778402]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with a few small indentations toward the top of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “Japanese Aircraft 1910-1941 will almost certainly come to be regarded as one of the truly outstanding works of aviation history. In the preface the authors state ‘For the vast number of Japanese aeroplane types that were built during the period covered by this book, it is disappointing that more has not been written in English about them’.

As a result of massive research the authors have now corrected this shortcoming. The names Kawasaki, Mitsubishi, Nakajima and a few others are well known but this work includes descriptions of the products of large numbers of companies and organisations that are known only to a few people outside of Japan.

The aeroplanes covered here range from the single type produced by the Awazu Flight Research Studio, include as would be expected the proliferation of Aichis, Kawanishis, Kawasakis, Mitsubishis and Nakajimas, and ends in alphabetical order with the products from the Naval Air Arsenal at Yokosuka.

Including early privately-built aeroplanes and those produced under licence, this work covers nearly 400 types. Appendices include aircraft of the Pacific war, a comparison of calendars, a bibliography and a glossary.”

Real Options: A Practitioner's Guide by Tom Copeland & Vladimir Antikarov (£34.00)Publisher: Texere — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1587990288]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine with a little wear to the dust wrapper as a result. Description: From the cover: “Determining the feasibility and the priority of potential investments is critical in business decision making. A new method for estimating the value of investments — real options — is gaining ground over the traditional approach of calculating net present value (NPV). Tom Copeland and Vladimir Antikarov argue that in ten years real options will replace NPV as the central paradigm for investment decisions.

This book offers the first practitioner’s guide for understanding and implementing real options in everyday decision making. The authors bring years of experience with dozens of corporations in implementing real options.

Copeland and Antikarov show how NPV is flawed and tends to undervalue investment opportunities. NPV is a static calculation that fails to consider the many options that management has over the lifetime of an investment project. Such options include expanding or extending the project if results are better than expected or scaling down or abandoning the project if it turns out to be worse than expected.

There are chapters that deal with valuing various types of simple options, such as deferral, abandonment, expansion, and contraction of projects, and more advanced options such as compound and switching options. Chapter 2 shows how Airbus Industrie uses real options in its marketing efforts and discusses the difficulties encountered in implementing real options. Chapter 7 shows how to write an Excel spreadsheet to value simple options, combinations of them, and compound options. Chapters 9 and 10 discuss ways of modelling uncertainties.

The analysis is enriched with case histories and case solutions. The end-of-chapter questions and problems provide both experience and additional insights into the application of real options..”

There is very little published material to help teachers deal with badly behaved children whilst delivering the National Curriculum. This book is full of strategies and photocopiable curriculum activities to help teachers change bad behaviour into good classroom behaviour. In a similar way the authors explore practical ways of helping children who display antisocial and bullying behaviour both outside the classroom and in the community followed by practical curriculum based activities.

Action and planning are difficult because of lack of readily available, reliable and useful data. To provide data in a simple diagrammatic form, the authors have brought together a selection of material from official publications such as Social Trends and Health and Personal Social Services Statistics and from other published and personal information. It should be compulsory reading for all members of regional and district health committees, for local and national politicians, for lay and medical administrators and for doctors and nurses working with patients. 271pp. Index.

The Treacle Mine Affair by D. E. Tucker (£28.00)Publisher: The Book Guild — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0863328407]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Slight tanning to the edges of the text block otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “One summer the inhabitants of Bincombe begin to behave strangely. They do not know they have been ‘pixillated’ by a peculiar effluent from the local disused lead workings, which include the oddly named ‘Treacle Mine’.

When Peg and Robin join their country cousins Helen and Adrian at Up-hill Farm for the holidays they form an intrepid team to unravel the fate of some stolen cattle and the mystery of the mine. They become entangled in an adventure much more dangerous and exciting than anything they had bargained for. For instance, Adrian’s Geiger counter shows such disturbing results on samples of water that radioactivity adds a frightening threat to the adventure. Strangers invade the village, headed by a master criminal called ‘The Octopus’. They are obviously up to no good and the daring quartet decide to infiltrate the Roman Cavern — scene of the crooks’ nefarious activities.

The boys make an horrific underground descent through a swallow-hole, but their dangerous attempt only raises more questions as to what dreadful scheme the gang are actually involved in. A good deal of hard work on a steam traction engine, plus the loyal support of their dog Shep, enables the cousins to penetrate the villains’ defences and uncover a wicked intrigue which threatens even more than the well-being of the village.

The final part of the adventure takes them into awesome underground passages, where stalagmites and stalactites provide a surrealistic setting for a crime which has distinctly contemporary significance. This thrilling narrative not only gives the reader an exciting mystery to solve — it also provides rich information on country living and on some of the environmental issues that concern us today.”

Upper wrap slightly curled otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: This updated edition of Understanding Object-Oriented Programming with Java develops the object-oriented programming skills of experienced programmers by showing them how to use Java 2, the latest release of Sun's Java platform. Dr. Budd provides a complete understanding of the philosophy behind Java 2 and teaches readers why the Java language works the way it does, unlike many other authors who focus only on how Java works. The book begins by covering the language-independent concepts that are at the heart of the Java world and then moves on to introducing Java through several example programs. This is followed by an in-depth discussion of inheritance and polymorphism. The book concludes with material on important features of Java that are not object-oriented. 396pp. Tags: polymorphism Java Sun Object-Oriented 0201612739

From the cover: “Junior doctors in the Accident and Emergency Department will find this an invaluable pocket book to assist them when assessing radiographs. It provides a concise and systematic approach whereby most radiographic abnormalities are readily and easily detected.

This book concentrates on radiological abnormalities which are significant, but frequently overlooked by the inexperienced doctor, who may have to make a clinical decision without the help of a radiologist. The majority of chapters follow a similar template and describe:
  • normal and relevant radiological anatomy
  • a systematic scheme for viewing the radiographs
  • common diagnostic pitfalls and sources of error
The book is based on a course developed over the many years that the authors have been teaching radiology to non-radiologists. Whilst it has been written primarily for the Accident and Emergency junior doctor, it also offers the trainee radiologist and orthopaedic surgeon an excellent primer of accident and emergency radiology.”

Learning and Teaching Social Theory by Edited by Jon Cope, Joyce E. Canaan & Dave Harris (£26.00)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".

At the end of most chapters, you’ll find a list of “Questions for Getting Started” that will help you to identify what steps you need to take — and what resources you may already have in place —t o accomplish the project segment presented in that chapter. In addition, throughout the book, the authors apply each principle and technique to a practical case study — a groundbreaking project conducted by a wedding-services business — with checklists and diagrams to clarify every application.

Frequently portrayed as an era of brutality and chaos, this book reveals the reality behind the legendary warriors of the period. What did King Arthur’s warriors really look like? Who were the mysterious pirate raiders from Ireland who ravaged Wales and Scotland? It also uncovers the considerable art of war in this period, the high level of craftsmanship achieved in the manufacture of all forms of arms and armour, from mail and scale defences to beautifully embellished helmets and swords. It shows how the achievements of the Roman war machine survived throughout the Dark Ages until the time of the Normans.

Drawing on the very latest discoveries and research, the authors create a vivid picture of Dark Ages warfare which will surprise many enthusiasts. Dan and Susanna Shadrake’s authoritative text is illustrated by 150 colour and black and white photographs, and world-renowned military artist Richard Hook has created four colour plates for the book.”
