Principles of Agricultural Economics: Markets and Prices in Less Developed Countries by David Colman; Trevor Young; (£43.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521336643]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Reprint. [First: 1989] From the cover: “This textbook addresses the main economic principles required by agricultural economists involved in rural development. The principles of ‘micro-economies’ or ‘price-theory’ are of relevance to economists everywhere, but this book reinforces the message of their relevance for rural development by explaining the theory in the specific context of the agricultural and food sectors of developing countries. Hypothetical and actual empirical illustrations drawn almost exclusively from such countries distinguish this book from other economic principles texts that draw their examples almost invariably from industrialised countries, and also from books more oriented to the issues of rural development. The first half of the book deals with the underlying principles of production, supply and demand. These are essential tools for the study and management of the agricultural sector and food markets. In the second half, supply and demand are brought together into a chapter of equilibrium and exchange. This is followed by chapters on trade and the theory of economic welfare. In the final chapter it is shown that much of the material in the earlier chapters can be combined by agricultural economists into a system for analysing and comparing the effects of alternative agricultural policies. The ability of agricultural economics to provide a consistent framework for the analysis of policy problems thus enables it to make a key contribution to rural development.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

Improved grassland management by John Frame (£34.00)Publisher: Farming Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852362463]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs, tables and charts. From the cover: “In all its diverse forms, grass is the renewable foundation feed for ruminant production — the green gold of many rural regions and, indeed, countries. Competition for agricultural markets, intensifying in a world growing ever smaller, together with a host of economic and political pressures, requires swift and flexible response and adaptation from grassland farmers to the challenge of change and improved efficiency of use. Precision of inputs, predictability of outputs and profitability are triple objectives.

Against this background, this book subdivides grassland management into its interrelated components before dealing with utilisation by grazing and by hay/silage. The approach taken is the application to practice of basic scientific principles using mainly British and European grassland as examples. Nevertheless, the principles can be applied to grassland elsewhere in the temperate world. Management in relation to the new surge of interest in extensification, forage legume use, nature conservation and environmentally sustainable systems of animal production is also covered.

Written in a reader-friendly, advisory style, Improved Grassland Management is a book for grassland farmers, extension officers, students of agriculture and land use and plant scientists — in fact for everyone with an interest in Mother Earth’s green carpet.”

A Horseman Through Six Reigns: The Reminiscences Of A Royal Riding Master by Horace Smith (£26.00)Publisher: Odhams Press — 1955Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed and rubbed with loss at the spine ends and tips. Boards sunned at the margins. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Horace (‘Cadogan’) Smith—the man who taught the Queen to ride — is known and respected throughout what he himself calls the “Horsey” world. He has lived and worked among horses for three-quarters of a century, and has won prize after prize at major horse shows all over Britain, from the International Horse Show at Olympia downwards. As a dealer he has bought and sold nearly twelve thousand horses during his lifetime. And as a judge of horses Horace Smith has been — and still is — in great demand at all the leading shows in Britain and many in Europe and America as well.

There is a strong sense of nostalgia about his brightly written autobiography. In these pages he transports the reader back through the years to a world that is no more, picturing spacious, leisurely days that had a charm all their own.

The horse was the normal form of road transport when Mr. Smith’s career began in the last decade of Queen Victoria’s reign. He joined his father in the well-established family business of W. J. Smith Limited, Horse Dealers, when he was sixteen. And many are the fascinating stories he has to relate of the cut-throat competition in the horse trade in London at the turn of the century.”

Freedom And Organization 1814-1914 by Bertrand Russell (£24.00)Publisher: George Allen & Unwin — 1934Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed with loss to the top edge of both panels and the spine ends. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “This book covers the period 1814-1914, and aims at showing the weakening of old forms of authority as a result of Liberal assaults and the more or less unintended growth of new forms of organization owing to economic and technical developments. Its subject is thus the interaction of theory and practice in the politics of the hundred years between the fall of Napoleon and the Great War. It opens with the Congress of Vienna and the Principle of Legitimacy, the Holy Alliance and the domination of Metternich. It then passes to economic theory from Malthus to Marx, as the outcome of early industrialism and the source of Radical and Socialist politics. American development is considered in two phases: the growth of democracy from Jefferson to Lincoln, and the transition from free competition to monopoly in the period from the Civil War to the Great War. Returning to Europe, the Principle of Nationality, as an outcome of Liberalism, is shown as a source of international anarchy. Bismarck, German unity, and German economic development lead to conflicts with Slav Nationalism and British trade; the British seek compensation in Africa, the Russians in the Far East. The growth of national monopolies in industry leads to economic imperialism, identifying economic and national rivalry, and increasing the importance of the State. Concentration of national power grows as International organization disappears, and war results.”Notes: Size: 9" x 5¾". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 528 pages.

From the cover: “THE TITANIC SET SAIL on her maiden voyage on 10 April 1912, the ship represented the essence of glamour, romance, high technology and not a little frisson of danger in an age when travel by sea could still prove hazardous. But the mythology surrounding the Titanic has overshadowed the fact that this ship also represented a new age of transportation when commerce, the rapid expansion of the US economy and mass migration from Europe to North America was forging a new travel industry.

The disaster of the Titanic in no way inhibited the rapid development of luxury liners. The 60 years that followed the saga of the Titanic are laden with the names of even greater liners — the Imperator, Ile de France, Normandie, Empress of Britain, Bremen, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, SS United States, France and many others.

This book surveys the colourful history of sea travel, from the early days through to the age when the great luxury liners of the twentieth century ruled the waves. It portrays the imposing presence of the Imperator, the haughty grandeur of the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth, the elegance and glitter of the Normandie and the France, the efficiency and style of the Bremen, the speed and the brash daring of the SS United States and finally the last of the great liners — the QE2, attempting, like Britain, to define a new role for itself without abandoning its traditions. Each great ship epitomised the designs and fashions of its age while at the same time representing the national aspirations of its flag nation. With national prestige at stake, competition between these ships — whether for elegance, luxury, technology or speed — was intense.

Through the pages of this lavishly illustrated book we not only witness the evolution of twentieth-century style and design which was encapsulated in the luxury liners, but also meet some of the icons of the century: the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin, Albert Einstein, Frank Sinatra.

No other book charts so beautifully the new generation of luxury ships that have inherited the seas. Today’s cruise liners, with names like Carnival Destiny, Pacific Princess and Song of Norway represent a new level of sophistication and have heralded a renaissance of interest in luxury ocean travel.”

Europe 1880-1945 by John Roberts (£20.50)Publisher: Longmans, Green & Co. — 1967Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper snagged at the head of the spine, a little faded overall. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps [8];

From the cover: “This book provides a guide to the most important changes in European history between 1880 and 1945. Not all of these are political in the conventional sense as they embrace cultural and philosophical ideas which are often neglected in more traditional books.

The core of the work is an examination of the process by which Europe, while displaying extraordinary vitality and creativity, failed to solve many of her own problems and therefore deployed many of her energies in self destruction. The clearest evidence we have of this is the way in which Europeans rejected the very ideas and institutions on which so much of the achievements of the previous half-century were founded: for example, tolerance, rationality, the belief in the individual and his rights, the common code of humanitarianism.

At the same time Europe was living in a world where other forces were beginning to appear which were also, in the long run, to help to undermine her power and influence; a dwarfing of Europe and the loss of her world hegemony is the major theme of international politics and this, too, owes much to Europe’s suicidal proneness to internecine struggle after 1914.”

Dog Training and Behaviour by Geoff Grinham (£19.50)Publisher: The Crowood Press — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1852237511]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Slight ruffling at the top edge of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The basis of all successful dog training must be an understanding of canine psychology and behaviour. In this book this vast and frequently misunderstood subject is tackled in a clear and accessible way, enabling anyone to grasp the essentials and use them to lay the foundations for a long-lasting, mutually satisfactory human/canine partnership.

The critical development periods of the puppy and the adolescent dog, establishment of rank order, canine language and communication, and the variables of temperament and disposition are explored before the author sets out in detail a comprehensive, easy-to-follow training programme. Working logically and progressively through each stage of the dog’s learning process, the handler is shown how to teach and consolidate each lesson, from the basics of Sit, Heel and Come, to the more advanced Search and Scent Discrimination exercises. Finally there are chapters dealing with individual behavioural problems, which explain how it is possible to retrain the errant dog and prevent future regression. Throughout, the practical day-to-day relevance of the various training exercises is emphasized, and the process by which mutual trust and understanding are achieved is made clear. Thus the book is more than a training manual; it is a complete guide to getting the most out of your partnership with your dog.

Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs and original line-drawings, Dog Training and Behaviour is both a practical step-by-step guidebook and a valuable source of reference for all dog owners.”

The Flight of the Creative Class: The New Global Competition for Talent by Richard Florida (£19.50)Publisher: HarperBusiness — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 006075690X]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. A pleasant copy.Description: From the cover: “For the first time ever, the United States is truly in danger of losing its most crucial economic advantage — its status as the world’s greatest talent magnet — argues best-selling author and economist Richard Florida. Where America was once the first destination for foreign students and the last stop for scientists, engineers, musicians, and entrepreneurs wishing to engage in the most robust and creative economy on the planet, it has now become only one place among many where cutting-edge innovation occurs. Burgeoning global technology hotspots. The outsourcing of ingenuity. Rising intolerance. A faltering education system. Cities torn by inequality. Disconnected political leadership. According to Florida, they all point to the looming creativity crisis that is causing the decline of American economic might. In the groundbreaking The Rise of the Creative Class, Florida introduced the United States to the rules of engagement in the creative age. Florida’s 3 Ts of economic development — Technology, Talent, and Tolerance — took him around the world and back again, sparking an international debate over the causes and effects of long-term prosperity, development, and innovation.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Planned Beef Production by Stephen Williams; C. David Edgar; (£18.00)Publisher: Crosby Lockwood & Son — 1966Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Ex-library with few marks. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a rough nearly closed tear to the leading edge of the lower panel. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THE production of beef cattle is complex and is becoming increasingly so. Technical changes have been applied to the once simple matter of having herds of breeding cattle in some places and yards of fattening bullocks in others. Sometimes they were on the same farm, but often there was a considerable distance between them and this was bridged by the cattle dealer and the store market. New concepts of breeding by artificial insemination led to the replacement of some dual-purpose cattle by some others. The reds and the roans became black and white, or just black; and the buffs are now making an appearance. Physical and chemical methods of dehorning have jostled with genetic advances in polling. Competition between the churn stand and the calf pen in a period of falling milk prices led to early weaning in its various guises and to the greater use of milk substitutes and the earlier feeding of concentrates. Multiple suckling, carefully supervised by expensive labour, has led to mass suckling with labour charges spread over more cattle. More recently there have been interesting developments with barley fed and battery beef with forage flowing untouched from silo to stock, a trickle of concentrates being fed on the way. The time has come for an appraisal of the multitude of methods in beef production and the many differing ideas regarding suitable breeds down to the introduction of the Charolais.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed, with inexpert tape reinforcements, and a little faded. Price Clipped. Previous owners' name to the first blank. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Pages lightly age-tanned. Pen ticks to a couple of items in the contents list. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise if slightly musty. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendix; Tables; Contents: The Problem Defined; High Water: The Pre-1914 Period; War And Reconstruction; The Troubled Years: The Interwar Period; Nationalism In Shipping In The Interwar Years; The Birth Of Liberty; The Prosperous Age: The Post-War Period; Enemies Of Competition In The Postwar Years; Flags Of Convenience; Economics Of Shipping Enterprises; Ship Owning And Resource Allocation; Labour Relations And Labour Costs (Basil Mogridge); The Conference System; The Structure Of The British Industry; The Question Answered; Epilogue: The Future; Appendix: The Contribution Of British Shipping To The Balance Of Payments;

From the cover: “It is only since about 1900 that the British shipping industry has had to meet severe and increasing international competition; and between 1900 and 1960 British-registered tonnage has declined from over 45 per cent to under 16 per cent of the world total. In this important study Dr Sturmey traces the history of the industry in its international context, examines the various explanations that might be advanced for its relative decline, and considers its prospects for the future.

He suggests that no fully adequate cause can be found in any of the factors external to the British industry such as changes in the underlying competitive situation, interferences with the competitive process, wars, trade changes, or the repercussions of government policies not directly concerned with shipping; and that the position in which the industry now finds itself is essentially attributable to the operation of certain internal constraints on growth, which must be removed if the industry is to recover its buoyancy.”

Europe Will Not Wait: A Warning and a Way Out by [Harold] Anthony Nutting (£14.50)Publisher: Hollis & Carter — 1960Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with light spotting to the same. Price Clipped. Tanning and light spotting to the start and finish, bright and clean otherwise.Description: From the cover: “As the vista opens on a series of summit talks and dealings between powerful economic groups of nations, Mr. Nutting’s book assumes a special relevance.

He calls it A Warning and a Way Out. The Warning stems from his close personal experience of Great Britain’s refusal since 1945 to respond to the call for leadership of the European revival. It is not too late to learn from mistakes, but they must first be fully understood — and Mr. Nutting sees to it that they are.

What is the Way Out, now that Europe has virtually decided to unite without Great Britain? In the face of mounting competition from Russia and Asia this division could mean disaster.

Mr. Nutting’s solution is a bold one. He would heal the division with a much wider political and economic coalition of the Commonwealth and the Common Market — and ultimately the U.S.A. Such a grouping is the only one large enough and flexible enough to meet the Soviet bloc on equal terms.

In an illuminating ‘Atomic Postscript’, Mr. Nutting suggests an Anglo-European nuclear pool as the essential military reinforcement for this community of the free world.”

Just As I Am - the Autobiography of Billy Graham by Billy Graham (£14.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0551031166]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Pages lightly age-tanned, more heavily at the margins. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Billy Graham has touched the hearts and souls of millions with his message of faith. Now, for the first time ever, Dr. Graham tells his life story in a momentous work of insight. Hailed as the world’s preacher, his calling as an Evangelist has taken him to every nation, from Europe to Asia, from major capitals to the most remote outposts. His Crusades have spanned fifty years, and he has been part of history in the making and friend to every president since Eisenhower. A pioneer in social issues (he refused to preach to segregated audiences in the South), he has led by his extraordinary example of integrity.

In Just As I Am, Billy Graham looks back at it all with down-to-earth warmth and candour — remembering his dairy farm upbringing, his early preaching experiences, and the overwhelming international response to his public ministry based on his unshakable belief in Christ.

Billy Graham Crusades have reached more than 200 million people in person, and millions more have heard him on radio, television, and film. He has been welcomed behind the Iron Curtain, into China and North Korea, and on every continent. And, at a time when many public figures seem scandal-prone, Dr. Graham maintains an unimpeachable reputation and powerful presence by managing his organization scrupulously, limiting his personal earnings, and urging cooperation rather than competition among all religious people.

Just As I Am reveals Billy Graham to be as forthright and engaging as ever as he reflects with plainspoken immediacy on his private life. As he shares his own spiritual journey, he writes movingly of his everyday joys and struggles, and of his profound commitment to his wife, Ruth, and their family.

Discussing his relationship with heads of state as diverse as Queen Elizabeth II, the Shah of Iran, and Kim II Sung, Dr. Graham also shares such memorable encounters as his plane trip with civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , when an engine caught fire, and his tragic unsuccessful attempt to warn President John F. Kennedy, Jr. , about the danger of his trip to Dallas.

Dr. Graham details his friendships with nine U. S. presidents, beginning with Eisenhower and including Johnson and Nixon and continuing to this day with Bill Clinton. As Dr. Graham points out, When a president of the United States, for example, wept in my presence, or knelt with me to pray, or privately unburdened his concerns about his family, I was not thinking about his political philosophy or his personality but about his need for God’s help.

This is an inspiring story of how a man of God grew into a man of great influence. Examining his life and ministry from the wise and humble perspective that has made him one of the world’s most beloved and respected leaders, Billy Graham’s Just As I Am is an unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere.”

From the arrival of the Europeans m the sixteenth century to the final defeat of the native Americans in the nineteenth, climate and competition for the resources of nature explain why men fortified where they did, campaigned as they did and were battlefields where the control drawn to the battlefields where the control of the continent was decided.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Dressage for the Event Horse by Ferdi Eilberg & Gillian Newsum (£13.00)Publisher: The Kenilworth Press — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1872082416]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: Mary Thomson and King William, Barcelona, 1992. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “It is now widely accepted that good dressage is a basic necessity for the success of any event horse. But many event riders find it difficult to produce a calm, fluent and accurate test on a horse who is bursting with energy and looking for the first fence.

Dressage trainer Ferdi Eilberg has worked closely with eventers for many years. He recognises the particular difficulties encountered by ultra-fit thoroughbreds and their riders. He explains that correct work on the flat is vital, not only because it provides the means of control but also because it enables the rider to develop his horse into the type of athlete the sport requires. A gymnastic horse can use himself better:
  • on the flat, by producing better balance and paces;
  • over jumps, by using his back correctly; and
  • between cross-country fences, by maintaining better rhythm and control.
Today, even at novice level, competition for a place can be fierce. So having a handsome lead after the dressage, or at least being up with the leaders, gives you a distinct advantage over your fellow competitors.

By following Ferdi Eilberg’s advice on training and competition technique, event riders from novice to advanced can significantly improve their horse’s performance and thereby their chances of beating the opposition in all phases.”

The first Cathedral Church of St. Michael was built at the time of the Norman Conquest: The second was destroyed by German bombs in 1940. Sir Basil Spence’s conception is the third to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes; and most people now agree that the selection of so imaginative an architect was indeed right. Here he tells the story of why he had always wanted to build a cathedral above everything else; of the Influences and experiences which moulded his thought (York, Gloucester, the great French Cathedral Albi); of his entering for the competition and his near-failure to submit his design. Then, when it was chosen, the forces of opposition began to arise against so bold a project, largely because it seemed to them too novel, too revolutionary; or perhaps just unexpected..”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6½".

Instead of the clichéd version of an Old Regime dying of infirmity and decrepitude, Schama shows us an ebullient country, infatuated with novelty and the cult of the new, where the crumbling of old distinctions between noble and commoner are evident. But France is the only power in Europe attempting to support both a great army and a great navy — the huge deficit opens the door to an aristocratic opposition, and the monarchy is forced to call the elections that begin its downfall.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 948 pages.

Boards dulled and somewhat bruised at the spine ends and corners. Edges of the text block lightly tanned and spotted. Leans. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “This book covers the period 1814-1914, and aims at showing the weakening of old forms of authority as a result of Liberal assaults and the more or less unintended growth of new forms of organization owing to economic and technical developments. Its subject is thus the interaction of theory and practice in the politics of the hundred years between the fall of Napoleon and the Great War. It opens with the Congress of Vienna and the Principle of Legitimacy, the Holy Alliance and the domination of Metternich. It then passes to economic theory from Malthus to Marx, as the outcome of early industrialism and the source of Radical and Socialist politics. American development is considered in two phases: the growth of democracy from Jefferson to Lincoln, and the transition from free competition to monopoly in the period from the Civil War to the Great War. Returning to Europe, the Principle of Nationality, as an outcome of Liberalism, is shown as a source of international anarchy. Bismarck, German unity, and German economic development lead to conflicts with Slav Nationalism and British trade; the British seek compensation in Africa, the Russians in the Far East. The growth of national monopolies in industry leads to economic imperialism, identifying economic and national rivalry, and increasing the importance of the State. Concentration of national power grows as International organization disappears, and war results.”Notes: Size: 9" x 5¾". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 528 pages.

Learn to Ride Using Sports Psychology: A Training Aid for Rider and Instructors by Petra Hölzel & Wolfgang Holzel (£12.50)Publisher: Vermont: Trafalgar Square Publishing — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1570760632]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Lightly rubbed at the tips of both the panels. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; First British Edition. [First Published: Franckh-Kosmos Verlags-GmbH & Co. , Stuttgart, 1995]

From the cover: “This book offers an exciting new approach — using the latest techniques of sports psychology. Through simple explanations and numerous illustrations the book sets out a dynamic learning system, which can be used to advantage by novice and advanced riders alike, and by instructors wishing to enhance their teaching skills.

Written by two top German riding instructors of international repute, the book explains how you can: overcome fear; focus the mind; employ positive thinking; eradicate established faults; enjoy trouble-free learning; make rapid progress; eliminate competition nerves.

Using a totally fresh concept, the book looks into the precise detail of how to ride, starting from scratch. It analyses the rider’s position at halt and in motion, in walk, trot and canter, and over jumps, and describes the aids for a variety of ridden exercises, including circles, turns, half-halts, leg-yield, half turn on the forehand and rein-back.

The instruction is so specific that in every exercise, the rider knows, even before he starts to ride the movement, exactly what he is supposed to be doing and how he should set about achieving it. Using feedback and mental rehearsal, he will also know how to repeat the movement successfully.”

Problems in Labor Relations by Benjamin M. Selekman; Sylvia Kopald Selekman; Stephen H. Fuller; (£12.50)Publisher: McGraw-Hill Book Co. — 1958Binding: Hardback Condition: Good+. Gently faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly soiled and tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: 2nd edition. [First Edition: 1950] From the cover: “When the first edition of this book was written in the tense atmosphere of the immediate postwar years, the question may well have been asked whether collective bargaining was an enduring institution. The year 1946, for instance, was marked by repeated, costly strikes in one basic industry after another. Indeed, in a reaction against this thrust of power on the part of new, industry-wide unions, the Taft-Hartley Act was enacted in 1947. It marked a reversal of the trend started with the validation of the Wagner Act by the Supreme Court in 1937. For now trade unions, too, were under surveil lance and could be made subject to charges of unfair labor practices as only management had been under the Wagner Act. Other restrictions were placed upon them by the Federal law, and a number of states enacted even more stringent legislation in the form of so-called “right-to-work” laws.

At this writing, ten years later, it can safely be said that, whatever legisla tion may still be forthcoming, collective bargaining has nevertheless survived as a permanent institution. Hardly any responsible managements would be willing to say now, regardless of their feelings in the past, that they preferred to function without unions or that they could do so even if they so desired. Problems still continue, some of them serious in nature. Whereas in the first five or six years after the war it was repeated strikes, some of an emergency nature, that troubled the nation, now it is “creeping” inflation. Indeed, many observers think that the continuous inflationary trend can be traced in large part to the periodic wage settlements, including fringe benefits, entered into by large unions and large corporations which establish patterns for the econ omy as a whole. The debate goes on as to whether unions are the primary cause of the inflationary trend or whether it is caused by corporations when they translate wage increases into price increases which, it is charged, are greater than just the wage component. To this management replies, ‘Well, surely, prices must be greater than the amount of the wage increase because our wage increase creates a cycle which makes everything we buy cost more. It costs us many times more to replace plants and machinery we built before the inflationary cycle began, not to say anything about raw and semi-finished material’.

The truth of the matter is that problems will always be with us: this or that issue will continuously arise in the highly dynamic industrial environment that characterizes this nation. Collective bargaining does not in itself solve major economic and social problems. What it does provide is a procedure by means of which problems can be identified and handled.”

Reaching For the Stars: The Illustrated History of Manned Spaceflight by Peter Bond (£12.50)Publisher: Cassell — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0304340898]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Jacket illustration: The launch of Space Shuttle Discovery from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, in September 1988. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “In 1961 the Soviet Air Force pilot, Yuri Gagarin, was the first man to go up into space; since then, over 250 men and women of different nationalities have joined the select band of astronauts. Reaching for the Stars is their epic tale, a testimony to one of mankind’s greatest achievements.

However, these heroic individuals are only part of the story. The book also describes the massive investment in technology demanded by the space programmes and the epoch-making events that marked the intense Super Power rivalries of the Cold War. This gave way to the brief period of détente which led to the Soviet-American handshake in space, and the competition in the space station and shuttle stakes during the 1980s.

The dramatic story concludes with a gaze into the crystal ball as it predicts some of the events which will enthral us all as the twenty-first century unfolds, among them being what US astronaut Harrison Schmitt calls in his Foreword ‘the next great human adventure, the settlement of Mars’. The lively text is complemented by a selection of some of the best space pictures taken during the last four decades, including some never before published, and by an up-to-date listing of all crew-related spaceflights.”

Trade Unions in a Free Society: Studies in The Organisation of Labour in Britain and the U.S.A. by B. C. [Benjamin Charles] Roberts (£12.50)Publisher: Hutchinson — 1962Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with rubbing at the tips of both panels and light soiling to the lower panel. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the pastedown. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: 2nd edition. [First Edition: 1959] From the cover: “This is a new, revised and enlarged edition of a smaller work published in 1959, and appears at a time when there is a mounting interest in the role, powers and duties of trade unions in the British economy and in the standard of living of the working man.

The original work attracted a great deal of attention by its penetrating analysis of the role of the trade unions, and by its courage in advising them to ‘come to terms with the market economy, which is an essential feature of a free society’. This edition was quickly sold, and it was decided to prepare a new one, bringing the argument up to date and comparing British trade unions with unions in America.

A reviewer in Economica said of the first edition of this book and also of Unions in America by the same author, published by Princeton University: ‘Mr. Roberts writes very well… One wishes the two works could be combined together, for they would make a first-class study in comparative industrial relations and the positions of trade unions in the world’s two chief democracies’. This has now been done.”

In ‘Learning Golf — The Lyle Way’, Sandy explains how to groove a consistently good swing into the muscle-memory. From grip to follow-through, from putting to power-driving, he shows the reader in practical terms how to build and improve his game. And more — The Lyle Way is designed as a total golf book. Beyond the mechanics of the swing, shot making variations and tactical choices, Sandy discusses a host of other topics such as practice techniques, the rules and etiquette of the game, how to help the youngster make a start, and the importance of fitness and even diet. Superb illustrations and clearly-written procedures make the book of enormous value to beginner and experienced player alike.”Notes: Size: 10" x 7¾".

Overcharge: How Electric Utilities Exploit and Mislead the Public, and What You Can Do About It by Lee Metcalf & Vic Reinemer (£11.50)Publisher: David McKay Company — 1967Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little wrinkled at the edges, somewhat marked and soiled at the panels with tanning to the spine. Boards lightly dust-stained. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. [First: Same Year] Illustrated / decorative end papers. From the cover: “The great blackouts in the Northeast and Southwest have dramatized how necessary electricity is to our modern life. Yet the industry is dominated by a few giant corporations called “I.O.U.s” (investor-owned utilities), that operate with the insolent grandeur of medieval princes.

It is widely believed that utilities, because of their privileged monopoly position and assured market, are not allowed to earn more than a 6% profit, and that government regulatory bodies see to this. But the return on the book value of common stock in many giant utilities exceeds 15%. Their net profit is more than 20% of their revenue — far more than is received by risk-taking free-enterprise businesses.

From 1956 through 1962, eight “I.O.U.s” each made more than $100 million in excess profits; one hundred and six utilities made a total of $3.4 billion in excess profits. For 500 kilowatt-hours of electricity, you pay $13.44 to Boston Edison, an “I.O.U.”, but only $5 to Seattle’s city-owned power system, which nevertheless pumps millions of dollars into the city treasury every year. Overcharges can cost many a family thousands of dollars during the breadwinner’s working life. This book names the companies that are exploiting the public and exposes the secrets of their financial operation. It reveals in documented detail the apparatus set up by utility companies, often paid for with the customers’ money, for the dissemination of propaganda through radio, press, advertising, and in our schools and legislatures. It also tells how electric consumers unknowingly finance extremist organizations, which receive regular contributions from the “I.O.U.s.”

The authors tell us how we can remedy these evils without injury to fair and profitable private ownership. They show us what is wrong with present government regulation and how to make it effective and helpful to both utilities and consumers; how competition can be strengthened, to the benefit of all — even in this mammoth, monopolistic industry.

Combining a broad background of legislative, judicial, and academic experience, the authors have presented the first definitive book to deal with the vast problems of electric power today, and the urgent need and opportunity for eliminating abuses.”

The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World by Niall Ferguson (£11.50)Publisher: Allen Lane — 2008Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781846141928]Condition: Very Good+. Slight reading crease to the spine otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Bread, cash, dosh, dough, loot: call it what you like, it matters. To Christians, love of it is the root of all evil. To generals, it is the sinews of war. To revolutionaries, it is the shackles of labour. But in ‘The Ascent of Money’, Niall Ferguson shows that finance is in fact the foundation of human progress. With the clarity and verve for which he is famed, Niall Ferguson reveals financial history as the essential back-story behind all history. He explains why the origins of the French Revolution lie in a stock market bubble caused by a convicted Scots murderer. He shows how financial failure turned Argentina from the world’s sixth richest country into an inflation-ridden basket case — and how a financial revolution is propelling the world's most populous country from poverty to power. Yet the most important lesson of financial history is that sooner or later every bubble bursts. And that’s why, whether you're scraping by or rolling in it, there's never been a better time to understand the ascent of money.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 442 pages.

Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: From the flap: “Has Britain really recovered from its decades-long industrial decline? What has to be done to maintain the recovery? And how did our industry become so uncompetitive in the first place? Here are the facts and the statistics behind the collapse of British industrial power and influence between the end of the Second World War and the late 1970s, and the subsequent return to apparent health in the Thatcherite years. Views vary widely on the causes of the decline; yet there is a remarkable degree of agreement as to what needs to be done to continue the recovery. Continue is the key word, for though the patient is off the critical list, he is far from dancing with rude health.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 388 pages.

And for the first time in his own words, he tells us how he came to achieve his extraordinary success and the hilarious journey that got him there. Growing up in his beloved Bolton, Peter spent his school days under the watchful eyes of the nuns who taught him as he whiled away the years trying to amuse the children around him. Peter dreamed of being a comedian from an early age and never had any doubt as to his true calling, whether it was performing impressions of Louis Armstrong and Frank Spencer for his family around the tea table or playing the role of the Lion in the school production of The Wizard of Oz, everybody knew what Peter’s destiny would be. Within a year of launching himself onto the comedy circuit, Peter Kay had won the 1997 Channel 4 ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ competition and was later nominated for the Perrier Award. From then on, his rise to the top has been meteoric. Eagerly anticipated, The Sound of Laughter is an unpretentious, warmly nostalgic and brilliantly funny.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The continent has come to exert a deep fascination upon him — its mixture of peoples, its history, its politics, its civilisation and its varied geography and military history have come to explain each other in North America as they do nowhere else in the world. From the arrival of the Europeans m the sixteenth century to the final defeat of the native Americans in the nineteenth, climate and competition for the resources of nature explain why men fortified where they did, campaigned as they did and were battlefields where the control drawn to the battlefields where the control of the continent was decided.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".
