Conflict of Norms in Public International Law: How Wto Law Relates to Other Rules of International Law by Joost Pauwelyn (£68.00)Publisher: Cambridge & New York: Cambridge University Press — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0521824885]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “One of the most prominent and urgent problems in international governance is how the different branches and norms of international law interact and what to do in the event of conflict. With no single ‘international legislator’ and a multitude of states, international organisations and tribunals making and enforcing the law, the international legal system is decentralised. This leads to a wide variety of international norms, ranging from customary international law and general principles of law, to multilateral and bilateral treaties on trade, the environment, human rights, the law of the sea, etc.

Pauwelyn provides a framework on how these different norms interact, focusing on the relationship between the law of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and other rules of international law. He also examines the hierarchy of norms within the WTO treaty. His recurring theme is how to marry trade and non-trade rules, or economic and non-economic objectives at the international level.”

An Ageing Population: A Reader and Sourcebook by Edited by Vida Carver & Penny Liddiard (£56.50)Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton — 1978Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0340233737]Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “At the beginning of this century, approximately seven per cent of the population was aged sixty or more. Today, the proportion is twenty per cent and is likely to rise still further, bringing with it an increased demand for the provision of services for the elderly, and placing new emphasis on the problems — personal, social, medical, economic — associated with old age. An Ageing Population examines these problems and the ways in which they affect the elderly individual, his family, the caring professional and the community as a whole. The papers in this book have been drawn from a variety of sources to provide a broad perspective on the needs and circumstances of the elderly. Thus extracts from the literature of sociology, psychology, medicine, social work and nursing appear side by side with personal accounts of ageing, disability and the activities of voluntary workers. Together, they reinforce the view that the problems and challenges associated with longevity require a community response matched with inter-professional understanding and cooperation. An Ageing Population, a set book for the Open University post-experience course of the same title (P252), will be invaluable to all those professionally responsible for the care of the elderly, as well as the concerned general reader.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 434 pages.

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.”

The Thatcher Era and Its Legacy by Peter Riddell (£48.00)Publisher: Blackwell — 1991Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0631182683]Condition: Good. Light reading creases to the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: First in this edition. [First: The Thatcher Decade, 1991] Jacket illustration: Mrs Thatcher leaving No. 10 for Buckingham Palace after resigning.

From the cover: “In 1989, in The Thatcher Decade, Peter Riddell provided the most wide-ranging and accessible analysis to date of the impact of Mrs. Thatcher’s government on the British economy and society in the 1980s. Now, following Margaret Thatcher’s sudden and dramatic departure from office in November 1990, he extends his classic account of the Thatcher years to include an assessment of her legacy and its consequences for Britain in the next decade.

Margaret Thatcher, one of the most remarkable of all British prime ministers, presided over a period of far-reaching change in Britain’s economy, industrial structure, labour market, society and place in the world. Looking beyond the personality of Mrs. Thatcher, Peter Riddell discusses how far these changes reflected the actions of the government, intended or unintended, rather than the influence of broader, longer-term trends common to other industrialized countries. Was there, in short, a Thatcher revolution? What are the consequences of her legacy?

The Thatcher Era is essential reading for all those interested in current politics.”

Text bright and tight.Description: From the cover: “This book grew out of a need at Gene Getz’s church, Fellowship Bible Church North in Plano, Texas. As the local economy slumped in response to the oil crisis, giving at local churches took a nosedive. Believing this to be indicative of deeper spiritual problems, Dr. Getz and several elders and laymen of the church united to search the Scriptures for the biblical perspective. Dr. Getz has been careful to cite only biblical truth about money, material possessions, and giving. This truth is framed in clear principles, leaving the reader to apply these principles in each given situation.Notes: Size: 9¼" x 6¼". 438 pages.

Greig Fester: A Story of Reinsurance by Antony Brown (£44.00)Publisher: Granta Editions — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857570332]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Jacket illustration: Map of the earthquake zones of the world illustrating the geography of catastrophes which form the basis of Greig Fester’s business. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Graphs; Tables; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “THE story of Greig Fester is the story of reinsurance — perhaps the most intriguing aspect of international insurance and the one most frequently involved in world news. Reinsurance is the means by which insurance companies insure themselves against the possibility of catastrophic losses. This is why the history of Greig Fester, one of the few Lloyd’s brokers to specialise in reinsurance, is often one of natural disasters ranging from floods and hurricanes to earthquakes. It follows the fortunes of the company formed 75 years ago by a remarkable Scots insurance man, and relates how it was later merged with a cosmopolitan firm whose European connections could hardly have been more in contrast.

Greig Fester: A Story of Reinsurance will, we believe, be a formidable addition to the growing library of books which guide the general reader through the mysterious and fascinating world of international insurance.”

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").

History of the Polish Air Force, 1918-68 by Jerzy B. Cynk (£41.00)Publisher: Reading: Osprey Publishing — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 085045039X]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper lightly sunned at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “This detailed account of the Polish Air Force — its birth in revolution, its brief but heroic period as the air arm of an independent nation, and its present status as one of the principal weapons in the armoury of the Soviet bloc — fills a serious gap in published aviation history. It is the first complete coverage of the subject to appear anywhere in the world.

The survey is divided into six parts: the birth of the Polish Air Force, up to 1918; the P. A. F’. s part in the fight for Poland’s independence, 1918-20; the inter-war developments, 1921-39; the air war over Poland, September 1939; the P. A. F. contribution to the Allied cause in France and Britain, 1940-45; and the P. A. F. of the Polish People’s Republic, 1943 to the present. In addition extensive appendices list data on aircraft supplies and equipment strength, operational records, commanders, bases, and losses and air victories in the two world wars. 250 photographs provide a unique record, and are of special interest to students of the early years of European aircraft.

Based on much information new to the West, exhaustively documented, and written with admirable objectivity, it amounts to more than a history of an air force. The author has taken such trouble to explain the historical, social and economic background that it becomes an important contribution to the history of Poland itself, and a commentary on the socio-political problems of air technology which are just as applicable today.”

The Barrier and the Javelin: Japanese and Allied Strategies, February-June, 1942 by H. P. Willmott (£36.00)Publisher: Annapolis: Naval Institute Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0870210920]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Distributors sticker covers publisher colophon on the title page. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “H. P. Willmott’s perceptive analysis of Japanese and Allied strategies in the Pacific war has set new standards for World War Two historians. The scope and depth of the research he did for the first book of his Pacific trilogy, Empires in the Balance, have earned him a reputation as a major chronicler of the period. With this second volume, Willmott continues to offer significant new material and interpretations that are certain to warrant further study.

The Barrier and the Javelin begins with a thoughtful assessment of the critical situation in which Japan found herself in the spring of 1942. Even by that early stage of the Pacific war, the fundamental weakness of the Japanese effort was evident. Japan had gone to war with little more than a five-month plan of campaign and the conviction that she could not be defeated by enemies who were her moral inferiors. Her intention had been to conquer territories essential to her economic survival and then fight a defensive war that would exhaust her enemies and lead them to a negotiated settlement. By the spring Japan’s leaders were becoming uncom-fortably aware that their enemies would not negotiate and that they themselves lacked the plans, and perhaps the means, to make them change their minds. Willmott sets out the arguments over strategy that plagued the Japanese naval command as it tried to formulate a coherent response to this potentially disastrous situation. In so doing he suggests that the weaknesses of the command’s decision-making process kept the Japanese from taking the one course of action that could have changed the outcome of the war, and were responsible for the ill-considered plan of campaign that began to fall apart in the Coral Sea in May’and ended in disaster four weeks later at Midway.

The book, however, is not confined to an examination of Japanese policymaking. Just as Empires in the Balance provides & critical appraisal of the moves made by all the combatants during the first five months of the war, so The Barrier and the Javelin places the Allied part of the February-June 1942 record alongside that of the Japanese. In doing so, it examines why the British and their dominions were totally unable to put together a proper Pacific policy in the opening phase of the war, and why the Americans came to accept a commitment to fight in the southwest Pacific when this area had barely figured in their prewar calculations. American intelligence gathering — Operation Magic — and its effect on the progress of the war are also described in full.

Willmott follows his assessment of the Allied situation with a detailed analysis of the battle of the Coral Sea and the action off Midway, which at last places these battles in their proper context. Debunking long-held beliefs about the com-parative strengths of the Japanese and Allied forces, he contends that in both battles the weaker fleet was defeated, not victorious as most accounts suggest. He further argues that if Japan was indeed fated to lose the war, then her defeat at Midway can hardly be regarded as the decisive battle so many claim it to be. Inevitability and decisiveness, he points out, are mutually exclusive terms.

Many readers will find Willmott’s treatment of the Japanese side of the battle of Midway an intriguing alternative to other books on the subject. He reveals some important new information that finally explains the inconsistencies found in previous accounts. His condemnation of Admiral Yama-moto’s inept handling of the entire fiasco is unusually clear and hard-hitting.

This view of the flow of events in the first half of 1942 provides one of the most comprehensive, balanced and readable studies of the period ever written. It will be of enduring interest to general readers as well as professional historians and students of World War Two.”

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.”

Out of the Crisis by W. Edwards Deming (£34.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0521305535]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge of the text block tanned. Description: From the cover: “This book examines two of the central issues facing industry — how to increase productivity without sacrificing quality, and how to capture markets from competitors. It is a practical book, with abundant illustrations, written for managers — whether in the manufacturing or service sectors. Dr Deming has a worldwide reputation for his work in establishing statistical process control techniques for quality as the route to competitive success in the new economic age. His involvement with Japanese managers is widely accepted as having contributed to their enviable reputation for quality manufactured goods.

The book provides a full account of Deming’s thinking on the primacy of management’s role in improving quality and productivity. He demonstrates what managers do wrong and how costs, dependability and quality can and must be improved. This is not just another manual of techniques; Deming provides a new theory of management which gets to the roots of the problems of industrial competitiveness which face managers today..”

Anybody Can Do Anything by Betty MacDonald (£33.00)Publisher: George Mann Books — 2001Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0704102439]Condition: Very Good. Description: A Later Printing.

From the cover: “One would suppose that during the terrible American economic Depression of the late Twenties and early Thirties there was not a lot to laugh about in the great U. S. of A.

All-pervasive helplessness and hopelessness, coupled with horrendous levels of poverty and unemployment would wipe the smile off anyone’s face — one would think. But one would be wrong.

Suicidal failed financiers might wait their turn to jump from the windows of Wall Street, but readers worldwide will already know that Betty MacDonald could always look adversity right in the face and spit in its eye. She did so when she and her young husband took a shortcut to bankruptcy called chicken-farming — hilariously described in The Egg and I — and she did so again when she went back to live with her mother with a failed chicken farm and a dead marriage behind her, desperate to find a living to earn in a country without any jobs.

But at least she had her indomitable sister Mary batting for her, running down every hint of a job opportunity, fixing appointments without consultation and catapulting Betty into one hilarious situation after another.

For Mary had always believed that ‘Anybody Can Do Anything — especially Betty’, and this joyfully funny book proves she was right!”

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier tanning to the spine and loss at the head of the same. Boards tanned and faded. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned and slightly spotted.Description: From the cover: “A study of current problems in sexual ethics treated as part of an historical dialectical process. The interrelation between sexual questions and economic or political questions and the paramount importance of facing the former in a spirit of scientific and moral honesty is the main theme. The broad theoretical sweep of the book is supported throughout by the quotation of practical examples. The author is courageously outspoken on such subjects as divorce, police-courts, abortion, Russia, home-life, nursery schools, and sex education. Although there is much trenchant criticism of existing stupidity and hypocrisy, he is by no means uncritical of the new schools of sexual morality. The book is a complete and penetrating statement of the present position in the field of sexual morals.”Notes: Size: 7½" x 5". Yellow boards with Red titling to the Spine & Upper Board. 144 pages.

Hong Kong's History: State and Society Under Colonial Rule by Edited by Tak-Wing Ngo (£32.00)Publisher: London & New York: Routledge — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0415208688]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated by way of: Tables;

From the cover: “Hong Kong’s rise from obscure fishing port to world city is usually put down to good colonial rule by Britain. This book challenges such a view and shows how the city’s success was shaped by the ruling elite and other native Hong Kongers.

Rewriting Hong Kong’s history from the bottom up, the chapters investigate vital, but hitherto obscured, aspects of the colony’s rise. They cover the Chinese collaboration with the colonial regime, legal discrimination and intimidation, rural politics, social movements, government-business relations, industrial policy, flexible manufacturing and colonial historiography.

Drawing together contributions from historians, sociologists and political scientists, the book highlights the role played by a variety of social actors in Hong Kong’s history and differs both from recent celebrations of British colonialism and anti-colonial Chinese nationalism.”

The Cistercians in the Early Middle Ages: Written to Commemorate the Nine Hundredth Anniversary of Foundation of the Order At Citeaux in 1098 Under the Patronage of Blessed Vincent Kadlubek, Bishop of Krakow (1208-18), Monk of Jedrzejow (1218-1223) by David H.

Bruised at the tail of the spine with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Maps;

From the cover: “The Cistercians in the Early Middle Ages seeks to portray the growth, conventual, cultural, spiritual and economic life, of a religious Order which was second to none in medieval Europe. Published to mark the nono-centenary of the foundation of the order at Citeaux in France in 1098, this volume concerns itself with the first 250 years of Cistercian history, sometimes called the ‘Golden Age’ of the Order, brought to a close by the Black Death.

No less than well over six hundred monasteries of ‘white monks’ spread throughout Europe, and into the Near East, and not only endeavoured to maintain an austere life of simplicity, accompanying the daily round of worship and prayer, but also played a significant role in bringing woodland and wasteland into cultivation. Sheep-farming was one of their noted activities, but they also participated successfully in industry and trade. In all this the monks were assisted by a large number of lay-brothers (known as the converse), who often outnumbered the monks by more than two to one, and who in practice undertook much of the manual labour.

The Cistercians left their mark in Europe in other ways, not least in some splendid architectural masterpieces, and in their contribution to annals and chronicles which tell of the political history, as well as of climatic and tectonic phenomena of their day. This volume endeavours to illustrate, with original maps and plans, much of the white monks’ activity, nor does it neglect the hundreds of Cistercian-affiliated nunneries which sought to emulate the male communities of the Order.”

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.

Forming Nation, Framing Welfare by Gail Lewis (£23.00)Publisher: Routledge — 2001Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0415181305]Condition: Near Fine. Plain white lable to upper wrap otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: This book considers the ways in which the development of social welfare in the UK has been intimately woven into the construction of the nation. The growth of the state's involvement in social welfare is at the heart of these processes, but the book also explores the ways in which the making of the family, struggles over social order and the rise of philanthropy played central roles in the construction of both nation and welfare. Drawing on a range of case studies dealing with the family, education, poverty and unemployment, this innovative book teases out the intersections between images of the nation and social welfare's purposes, providers and beneficiaries.Notes: Size: 4to Crown (25 x 19cm Approx.). 296 pages.

Regional Growth Theory by Harry W. [Ward] Richardson (£23.00)Publisher: Macmillan — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0333144279]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is a little rubbed overall. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd printing. [First Published: 1973]

From the cover: “This book develops a theory of regional economic growth that attempts to integrate space and distance into the analysis of the regional growth differentials. This requires an explanation of the phenomena of concentration and agglomeration in the space economy, and their force relative to dispersion tendencies. It is argued that a satisfactory theory must be capable of simultaneously explaining unbalanced growth in the interregional system and the spatial unevenness of development within each region.

The book also contains a review of the current state of regional growth theory. In particular, considerable stress is laid on the irrelevance of neoclassical assumptions in regional analysis. The theory developed places much emphasis on the concepts of agglomeration economies and locational preferences, the importance of which illustrates the inadequacies of the price mechanism as a spatial allocator of resources. It is also argued that it is vital to take account of the urban dimension of regional development and to analyse how the spatial structure influences resource mobility.

Although the analysis is primarily theoretical, the objective throughout is to shed light on the regional growth process in the real world and to make regional growth theory more relevant to policy-makers. In particular, efforts are made to structure the model in a testable form, while the problems of empirical verification and the policy implications of regional growth theory are also discussed.”
