British Airports by Leo Marriott (£11.50)Publisher: Ian Allan — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711020760]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Small sticker to the first blank. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “It is a sobering thought that, around the world, over 1,000 million passengers are boarding scheduled airline flights every year and the figure is constantly increasing. Added to this are millions of charter passengers as well as others on private or business flights and all of these have one thing in common — they will begin and end their flight at an airport. Those with an interest in aviation affairs will inevitably concentrate their attention on the aircraft themselves, perhaps the most exciting machines ever invented by man, but from the very earliest days aviators have always been dependant on support from the ground. Of course, their original demands were few, any reasonably flat area would do for taking-off and landing and a few gallons of fuel could be easily carried in cans. However, early aircraft were fragile and at the mercy of the elements and so some sort of weatherproof shelter soon became a necessity. As aircraft got larger and heavier, they needed longer take-off and landing runs and so aerodromes became larger, although still very small by modern standards.

Since the early years technical improvements in aircraft design have forced airport authorities to provide better facilities such as longer runways, larger terminals, radar, runway and approach lighting, and instrument landing systems.

This book attempts, through the medium of photographs, to show some of the history of our airports and how they have grown and developed over the years. While all the major airports have been covered in varying detail, an effort has been made to include a large cross section of the many smaller or less busy airfields which, nevertheless, play an important part in the communities they serve. As far as possible aerial photographs have been used as these best show the airfield layout and are useful for comparative purposes.”

[ISBN: 0723006873]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dustwrapper.Description: From the cover: “Is “open government” no more than a slogan? What is a quango, a funding council, an executive agency?

In this challenging and authoritative new reference book, Michael Dynes and David Walker show just how profound the changes to government in Britain have been since the 1980s. Their detailed listings of the new offices of state and of the people who run them, coupled with their analysis of how and why these changes have occurred, make ‘The Times Guide to the New British State’ the indispensable guide to Britain in the 1990s.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Back to Basics: Arthur Daley's Anatomy of Britain by Andrew Nickolds (£10.50)Publisher: William Heinemann — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0434000213]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the flap: “Arthur Daley, national institution, super patriot and Olympic gold medallist in Ducking and Diving, takes a long, hard look at the state of the nation and asks: What is Occurring? Her Majesty the Queen forced to open up the hallowed portals of Buck House and become a Pentax-dodger; Her Majesty Mrs Thatcher roaming the seas singing for her supper, while the fate of the country is left in the hands of a Nerd-Do-Well and a Chancellor who smokes cigarillos; and even Her Holiness Lady Porter treated like some common shoplifter at Tesco! Fortunately Arthur is on hand. His brief, if you’ll pardon the expression? To hold out a beacon of light to hapless Brits lost in a mailroom of uncertainty, and to lead them back to the level playing field on top of the high moral ground. To bring the country back to basics on such burning topics as the Monarchy, Sport, Education, the Citizens’ Charter (the Arthur-ised Version), Europe, the Arts and the vexed question of Sunday Trading. In a dry roast nutshell, Daley’s Anatomy is a complete company report on Great Britain plc that makes the Doomsday Book look like a takeaway menu from the Fulham Golden Palace.”

Globalisation for the Common Good by Kamran Mofid (£6.50)Publisher: Shepheard-Walwyn — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0856831956]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “Today, despite many significant achievements in science, technology, medicine, transportation and communications, and a vast increase in world trade, the globalised world economy is facing serious socio-economic, political, cultural and environmental problems, of potentially catastrophic proportions. Despite numerous attempts to raise living standards through market economics and free trade, the dire poverty of billions of people and the widening gap between rich and poor, both within and between countries, point to the failure of these policies. Consequently, we face global crises of inequality, injustice, poverty, marginalisation, exclusion and environmental degradation. There has also been a huge rise in crime, corruption and now terrorism. Economic and political failures have resulted in mass migrations across national borders, causing further problems of xenophobia, fear, mistrust, racism and intolerance which are threatening the fabric of societies all over the world. So, what has gone wrong? The author, a professional economist, argues that the root of the problem lies in the way economics is taught, with its narrow focus on ‘self-interest’ and ‘competition’ as the sole motivating factors in economic activity. This ignores many important elements such as the common good and cooperation, which are essential for a prosperous and harmonious society. Globalisation today is regarded by many as a means of securing for richer individuals, corporations and nations an ever larger slice of the wealth produced, polluting the environment in their greedy pursuit of more, and locking billions into hopeless poverty. The author argues that, with different values, it is possible for everyone to have a fair share of the benefits of globalisation and sets out an alternative economic model with a firm theological, spiritual and ethical foundation.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 110 pages.

He’s a man who’s raised murder to a form of high art; whose deadliest weapons aren’t guns or knives but his uncanny knowledge of human nature… And Rhyme must combat both the hitman’s amoral genius and Percey’s headstrong determination if he is to save her.

Is Peace Possible? by Kathleen Lonsdale (£5.50)Publisher: Penguin — 1957Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. Wrappers a little tanned. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Most people find pacifists irritating because national pacifism seems to be so impracticable. Yet five years before the first atom bombs were dropped the Atlantic Charter stated that ‘All nations of the world, for realistic as well as spiritual reasons, must come to the abandonment of the use of force’. How urgent this is can be understood in terms of the fact that any nation able to develop nuclear power will also be able to develop nuclear weapons. In the world of the future, over-population, inequalities of population density and of living standards, the increase of power with the technical development of the Asian and African peoples, and the maintenance of international law and order, will present problems that cannot be solved by force, even if concentrated in the hands of an international army, still less by the continued practice of power politics. Indeed, war preparations exacerbate many of our difficulties and sow the seeds of new ones. We need to do some hard thinking about ways of tackling those questions that would face a world or a nation that did decide to abandon the use of force. Only then shall we see clearly how to attain such a world.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). In the Penguin Special series. 127 pages.

Now she’s the target of the Coffin Dancer. Brilliant quadriplegic criminalist Lincoln Rhyme knows the killer only too well. He’s a man who’s raised murder to a form of high art; whose deadliest weapons aren’t guns or knives but his uncanny knowledge of human nature… And Rhyme must combat both the hitman’s amoral genius and Percey’s headstrong determination if he is to save her. And keep himself alive.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 448 pages.
