From the cover: “Contraceptive steroids have been in use for the last thirty years and today some sixty million women use them. The importance of ensuring that regulations governing the development and use of new contraceptive steroids are appropriate is self-evident.

This book records the proceedings of a symposium organized under the aegis of the World Health Organization’s Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction. Experts from a wide range of disciplines review the risks and benefits to women of contraceptive steroids, the predictive value of toxicological studies, and the role of controlled clinical trials.

The book ends with a set of guidelines on the toxicological and clinical assessment, and the post-registration surveillance, of steroidal contraceptive drugs.

This important and authoritative compilation will be of value to all those involved in the development, testing and prescription of these compounds, and to those concerned with regulating their use in the public domain.”

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.”

From the cover: “This unique book is divided into three distinct sections containing comprehensive guides to the Zodiac, the Tarot and Palmistry, subjects that continue to exercise a profound fascination for millions of people.

Much of the current interest in the occult reaches little deeper than the horoscopes in popular newspapers and magazines, but beneath mere curiosity lies a deep and persistent urge to make sense of man’s life and his relation to the universe.

Modern science, though a valuable tool in understanding the physical world, has failed to satisfy this urge: it is still unable to unravel the depths of man’s subconscious or reveal the forces that shape his character.

All those willing to go beyond the popular image of horoscopes, will find here a fresh approach to traditional topics together with the essential balance of the historical perspective, will be fascinated by the unfolding of the mysteries of astrological science.

Superb colour plates appear throughout, with hundreds of black and white illustrations..”

A Manual of Clayshooting by Chris Cradock (£15.50)Publisher: London: B. T. Batsford Ltd. — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0713453087]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the reverse of the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 2nd printing, [First Published: 1983] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [90]; Diagrams [26];

From the cover: “Writing from a wealth of experience and a position of authority, Chris Cradock has produced a manual of techniques and hardware in clayshooting, comprehensive in scope and meticulous in detail. He has been involved with the sport for 60 years, and there are few aspects of its application both in Europe and the United States with which he is not familiar.

The book deals initially with modern shotguns and cartridges and the specifications of both for the various disciplines. There is then information on the try-gun, fitting and stock alterations. Buying a gun, suitable clothing and accessories are then discussed before the book covers the basics of the sport such as safety, stance and style. Shooting the various disciplines forms the basis of the next chapter. Much more general information is given in subsequent sections which deal with refereeing, shooting clubs, trap operation and control, coaching and maintenance. There is, finally, a chapter on the sport’s future.

In total, Chris Cradock has produced a work, both informative and readable, which will quickly establish itself as the reference manual for all those with an active interest in sport.”

Irish Georgian by Herbert Ypma (£12.00)Publisher: New York: Stewart, Tabori & Chang — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 155670707X]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Contains: Colour photographs;

From the cover: “During the late eighteenth century, the landed gentry of Ireland spearheaded the founding of a considerable Irish industry, dedicated to beauty in architecture, design and decoration. In all disciplines of style, Ireland set extraordinary standards and achieved many world firsts, including the first public building in the Neo-Palladian style; marvellously decorated copper-plate-printed fabric; silver and cut crystal; and the perfection of the mezzotint technique. Less pretentious than their English counterparts, Irish Georgian houses distinguish themselves not just by their wild and wonderful settings and inspiring classicism, but also by an extraordinary quality of workmanship.

Irish Georgian explores the simplicity, symmetry and unaffected elegance of the classical revival pervading the architecture of this era, celebrating its powerful appeal and renewed interest today. From grand country manors, genteel townhouses and graceful villas to simple rural cottages, Ypma’s investigation, along with photographs by Barbara and Rene Stoeltie, examines the inspirational houses, great and small, renovated by people such as Desmond and Mariga Guinness, Timothy Hennessy, and even the Stoelties themselves.

Irish Georgian will provide architects, designers, and those with an interest in the decorative arts with an illuminating look at a magnificent cultural legacy.”

Express Newspapers: The inside Story of a Turbulent Decade by Andrew Cameron (£11.50)Publisher: London House — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1902809440]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge of the text block slightly tanned otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Few have been closer to the centre of the British newspaper revolution than Andrew Cameron. As Managing Director of Express Newspapers from 1986 to 1996, he was at the hub of the industry. He worked with the personalities of the business, fought the battles with the unions and technological advance, took part in the circulation wars and the struggle for the centre ground of the British printed media, and watched the constant threat to the daily paper from other forms of communication.

This candid, controversial yet well constructed review of a remarkable decade in British media history pulls no punches but remains a responsible record of people and events. It is a valuable account of a unique industry in the midst of almost unbearable change, at a time when a dramatic ill-judged change of personnel or strategy was seen as necessary action and policies were changed ‘on the hoof. Good sense and order was always likely to be sacrificed on the altar of increased circulation. Andrew Cameron worked with Jocelyn Stevens, Max Aitken, David Stevens, Victor Matthews, John Junor and Larry Lamb, and he presided over many changes which are still impacting on newspaper production, design and marketing. His book provides excellent information for those with a professional or lay interest in the news industry, from printing and publishing staff to media students. It will also be of value to those involved with the presentation of news in all its forms and others following the influence of the media on our history and daily lives.”

Francis Warner and Tradition: An Introduction to the Plays by Glyn Pursglove (£11.50)Publisher: Colin Smythe/Humanities Press — 1981Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0861400836]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with rubbing at the spine ends and tips of the panels. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned, heavier so toward the margins.Description: From the cover: “Until now there has been no full-length study of all of the remarkable series of plays written by Francis Warner during the 1970s. That need is now met by the publication of this work. Francis Warner’s plays are startlingly experimental in their use of theatrical resources, but this study shows them to be deeply traditional too. The plays are examined in relation to such diverse traditions and disciplines as neo-Platonism and cerebellar anatomy, Jacobean tragedy and Pauline theology. The book explores analogies and sources in the works of, amongst others, Picasso, Ficino and Yeats. In a play by play account, emphasis is placed upon the continuity of Francis Warner’s dramatic concerns, as seen in the plays of the Requiem trilogy, their preparatory Maquettes, and their successors, A Conception of Love and Light Shadows. Detailed examination of the texts elucidates many of the references in these richly allusive works, as well as clarifying those patterns of image and symbol which sustain so much of Warner’s dramatic statement. The plays are seen as theatrical and poetic contemplations upon the survival of light in surrounding darkness, as affirmations of the enduring human spirit in a world where men are ‘wracked by doubts but capable of glimpses of perfection’. Pursglove has provided a lively and thorough guide that will enhance the pleasure and understanding of all viewers and readers of the plays.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

The Fundamentals of Riding by Lucy Rees (£11.50)Publisher: St Martins Press New York — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 031206750X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, slightly more heavily at the tail of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “The fundamentals of riding are not contained in a simple list of steps, like the rules for using a computer or fixing a car; the basis of riding is the symbiosis of two living creatures, horse and human. Riding is all too often taught as though the horse were a piece of machinery, with the result that riders, especially as they advance, have little understanding of the subtly different requirements of each riding style, or of why the horse responds as it does.

Lucy Rees’ approach is very different. She maintains that the key to riding is understanding how the horse adapts its movements in response to the rider’s. With the aid of superb, specially commissioned photographs and computer “paintbox” illustrations which demonstrate how an unridden horse moves naturally, she is able to show in words and pictures just how the horse reacts. She explains how to feel the horse’s movements when riding and the effect the rider can have on its movement and balance. With this understanding, the techniques behind the various riding styles and disciplines become clear and the rider has a chance to achieve harmony with the horse.

Over 300 exciting pictures and authoritative text combine to make a book that’s useful and fascinating to beginners and more advanced riders alike. It covers the basic movements in English and Western riding, jumping and dressage in a way that finally makes clear just what rider and horse are doing, and why.”

The Henston Guide to the Management of Coughing In Dogs by Peter Darke (£10.50)Publisher: Henston — UndatedBinding: Paperback [ISBN: 1850541043]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “Respiratory disease in the dog has, it would appear, received little attention in recent years when compared to diseases of other body systems. The disciplines of cardiology, dermatology and orthopaedics, it can be claimed, have many followers within the veterinary profession but few would profess to have a particular interest in respiratory medicine. As the science of veterinary medicine progresses, so do veterinary surgeons in general practice, veterinary nurses and clients want to know more about specific diseases they come across, no less the coughing dog. The care of a dog with chronic respiratory disease needs patience and understanding from all concerned and as with the treatment of other, more complicated diseases, few veterinary clinics cater for the time required to pass on the understanding required by all involved. As a follow on from our other Henston Guides, this small book is intended to provide a greater understanding of the processes of respiratory disease in the dog for those involved in its care. Armed with this understanding, it is hoped that they can manage the condition better and so improve the quality of life of the respiratory patient.”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¾". 38 pages.

Belief in God in an Age of Science by John Polkinghorne (£9.50)Publisher: Yale University Press — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0300072945]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “John Polkinghorne is a major figure in today’s debates over the compatibility of science and religion. Internationally known as both a theoretical physicist and a theologian — the only ordained member of the Royal Society — Polkinghorne brings unique qualifications to his enquiry into the possibilities of believing in God in an age of science. In this thought-provoking book, the author focuses on the collegiality between science and theology, contending that these “intellectual cousins” are both concerned with interpreted experience and with the quest for truth about reality. He argues eloquently that scientific and theological enquiries are parallel.

The book begins with a discussion of what belief in God can mean in our times. Polkinghorne explores a new natural theology; he emphasizes the importance of moral and aesthetic experience and the human intuitions of value and hope. He then discusses the common quest for truth in two disciplines when he compares science’s struggle to understand the nature of light with Christian theology’s struggle to understand the nature of Christ. He also addresses the question, Does God act in the physical world? And he extends his ideas about the role of chaos theory, surveys the prospects for future dialogue between scientific and theological thinkers, and defends a critical realist understanding of the activities of both disciplines. Polkinghorne concludes with a consideration of the nature of mathematical truths and the links between the complementary realities of physical and mental experience.”

People's Prison by Geoffrey Jackson (£9.50)Publisher: Readers Union — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Pages very gently age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “This is Sir Geoffrey Jackson’s absorbing account of his experiences in 1971 when, as British Ambassador to Uruguay, he was captured in Montevideo. First he describes how the tension built up and how, knowing what had happened toothers, he knew that his liberty, if not his life, was threatened. Then the shocking daylight snatch… and the best part of a year spent underground, in two successive dungeons, of a so-called People’s Prison.

His captors were the Tupamaros, a self-designated Army of National Liberation who had chosen the short cut of violence to bypass Uruguay’s economic troubles. His kidnapping without trace for over eight months was aimed at toppling the government to which he was accredited.

In this personal narrative he has abstained from political commentary and ideological analysis. It is a chronicle full of immediate insights into the new violence, and the mind and existence of the urban guerrilla. Yet he portrays his young captors with full respect for common humanity, and writes as one who indeed loves his fellow men, however he may detest some of their actions.

The author’s own fierce disciplines had their roots in faith and many other well-tended corners of his native tradition. His story itself conveys why he survived, often in solitary confinement and unspeakable hardship, to ‘come home’ — as his moving epilogue depicts — with his warmth and gaiety of spirit intact.”
