Campaign Trading: Tactics and Strategies to Exploit the Markets by Jack Sweeney (£68.00)Publisher: John Wiley & Sons — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 047114150X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the head of the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. The boards and spine appear to have been "recovered" before the application of the titling with a small area of overlap of the cloth. Not unpleasant. Odd. Binding unaffected.Description: From the cover: “Success in the trading arena requires the ability to change strategies on a regular basis in order to accommodate moves in the market and shifts in investment preferences. And while having a solid trading system in place is important for attaining favorable and profitable results, it is equally important to have an overall approach that is flexible. After all, any given system is only effective for a certain period of time, under a specific set of circumstances. Campaign Trading gives you the tools you need to develop a strong trading style that can be adjusted, refined, and retuned, when necessary, to meet the demands of current market behavior.

Author John Sweeney, Technical Editor of the highly regarded Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine, has written a one-of-a-kind book that focuses on the “big picture”. He maps out a game plan with which you can win the trading war, not just the isolated battles. Covering essential topics such as the basics and anomalies of campaigning, reversing bad trades, reversing out of ranges, and using options to shift the odds, this invaluable reference shows you how to build a sound base for campaigning. You will learn what measurement techniques to use, how to test trading rules for effectiveness and how to pick the types of trades you will use in future campaigns.”

The Cuvier-Geoffrey Debate: French Biology in the Decades Before Darwin by Toby A. Appel (£52.00)Publisher: New York & Oxford: Oxford University Press — 1987Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0195041380]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [4];

From the cover: “For scientists, no event better represents the contest between form and function as the chief organizing principle of life as the debate between Georges Cuvier and Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. This book presents the first comprehensive study of the celebrated French scientific controversy that focused the attention of naturalists in the first decades of the nineteenth century on the conflicting claims of teleology, morphology, and evolution, which ultimately contributed to the making of Darwin’s theory.

This history describes not only the scientific dimensions of the controversy and its impact on individuals and institutions, but also examines the meaning of the debate for culture and society in the years before Darwin.”

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").

DJ a little scuffed and soiled, not repellant. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Internally bright and clean.Description: The characteristic feature of multivariate analysis is the consideration of a set of n objects, on each of which are observed the values of p variables. The set of objects may be complete or it may be a sample from a larger set. The variables may be continuous or discontinuous, and themselves may be a subset of a larger group. Given such a complex, we require to study it for a number of different purposes of which the following are the most important: Structural simplification; Classification; Grouping of variables; Analysis of interdependence; Analysis of dependence; Hypothesis construction and hypothesis testing; I have no idea what any of this means to be honest but thought you may care to have a brief excerpt from the introduction. 210pp. Index.

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..”

Persona Granada: Some Memories of Sidney Bernstein and The Early Years of Independent Television by Denis Forman (£32.00)Publisher: London: Andre Deutsch — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0233989870]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Slightest lean otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs;

From the cover: “When ITV first went on air in 1955, Granada Television soon established itself as the most innovative of the new independent television companies. Granada took risks, ignored conventions, and challenged conventional notions of how television programmes should be made. Coronation Street, the hard-hitting World in Action, adventurous drama productions — this was television that made people sit up and watch.

Denis Forman was there from the start, and in this richly detailed and compelling memoir he combines an affectionate portrait of Granada’s prime mover, the extraordinary Sidney Bernstein, with an insider’s account of the personalities behind the scenes and the triumphs — and occasional disasters — of this remarkable television company.

They were heady days. Granada defied the antiquated rules of political broadcasting with its ground-breaking coverage of a by-election which was to change the course of television’s relationship with politicians. There were frequent battles with the Independent Television Authority over investigative reports thought to have gone too far in exposing scandal and corruption. It was a time of creative ferment, a time when Granada’s team of talented programme-makers earned the company its enduring reputation.

Denis Forman charts the history of Granada with abundant wit and a refreshing candour. His own contribution to the Granada success story, culminating in his close personal involvement in the universally acclaimed The Jewel in the Crown, was immense. He is modest about his own achievements, and generous in his appreciation of the many colleagues — some of them later to become senior figures in television — who made Granada what it was. But as this engrossing memoir reveals, none of it could have happened without the towering presence of the original persona Granada, Sidney Bernstein: founding father, guiding spirit, and one of the most remarkable men of our century.”

Here is the first practical handbook that leads you through the entire process, ties it all together, and ensures not only success but excellence.

You’ll be able to: • Plot a project road map that everyone can follow. • Create self-directed work teams that meet or exceed expectations. • Demonstrate significant contribution to your company’s bottom line. • Master alternative methods of obtaining the expertise you need. • Encompass team members’ diversity, mobility, and flexibility. • Build in proven risk-management measures from the outset. • Use metrics to assess quality and reduce waste. • Incorporate network, web, and videoconferencing technologies. At the end of most chapters, you’ll find a list of “Questions for Getting Started” that will help you to identify what steps you need to take — and what resources you may already have in place —t o accomplish the project segment presented in that chapter. In addition, throughout the book, the authors apply each principle and technique to a practical case study — a groundbreaking project conducted by a wedding-services business — with checklists and diagrams to clarify every application.

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.”

Teacher Supply and Teacher Quality: Issues for the 1990's by Edited by Gerald Grace & Martin Lawn (£23.00)Publisher: Multilingual Matters — 1991Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853591556]Condition: Good. Rubbed at the tips of the wrappers. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: From the cover: “When Sir Claus Moser said in his Presidential Address to the British Association (1990) that “central to all school problems is the state of the teaching profession”, he was expressing a widely held view. The decade of the 1980s in many English-speaking countries has done little to improve the morale and work conditions of teachers in publicly provided education.

The gap between the public rhetoric which acknowledge the importance of teachers and the realities which teachers experience remains very great. With reference to England and Wales this timely and critically stimulating book examines the issues which have to be addressed in the 1990s. It provides an agenda for educational policies and practices which take seriously the importance of teachers as key agents for realizing equal educational opportunities for all. This agenda has relevance for educational policy in a wide range of societies.

Many of the issues raised are multicultural and international, not simply British..”

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".

Inside Japan's Power Houses: The Culture, Mystique and Future of Japan's Greatest Corporations by Kevin Rafferty (£19.00)Publisher: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297814540]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with a nick to the top corner of the lower panel. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “Exactly 50 years ago the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki left Japan defeated and in ashes. Today it has risen miraculously to be one of the world’s two economic megapowcrs and is demanding a role as a political great power. The story of Japan’s phoenix-like rise has often been told, but the economic culture of the country’s mega-businesses is still a mystery, and so are the powerful ties between businessmen, bureaucrats and politicians, the ‘unholy trinity’ of Japan Inc.

Kevin Rafferty, who has spent 25 years living and working in Asia, has been granted privileged access to the powerhouses of Japan’s economic miracle and has talked freely to the key figures, including grand opera singer Yoh Kurosawa of the Industrial Bank of Japan, Hampstead-born and Harvard-educated Minoru Makihara of Mitsubishi Corporation, shogi master Fumio Sato of Toshiba and the Toyoda car-making brothers, Shoichiro and Tatsuro, perhaps the most powerful men in Japanese industry. In a country where open and vigorous argument is often avoided, these men talk frankly about their achievements and the problems ahead.

But the author has gone beyond the powerful companies, like Matsushita, Nippon Steel, Toshiba, Toyota and the aerospace and banking giants. He examines the much-vaunted education system to assess the future challenge. He has also talked to the almighty mandarins of the finance ministry and the all too frequently corrupt politicians. The result is a cool appraisal of how different Japan really is, of the price paid for economic maturity and a strong yen, the need for political reform and — most vital for the rest of the world — whether Japan can become a ‘normal’ nation sitting at the top political table.”

Production and Inventory Management by Donald W. Fogarty & Thomas R. Hoffmann (£19.00)Publisher: South-Western Publishing — 1983Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0538070404]Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Light offset to the endpapers. Text bright and tight.Description: The book is divided into five major parts. The sequence of chapters and topics in Parts 1 and 3 generally follows the chronological order in which these activities take place in practice. Long-, medium-, and short-range planning, for example, are treated in that order. Following that logic, order release planning is examined in Chapters 4, 5, and 7; and actual order release is covered in Chapters 12 and 13. Although planning for all time horizons, execution, and control are all occurring at any time in an organization, these concurrent, diverse activities usually concern different periods. Treating PIM activities in the sequence in which they apply to a given time period facilitates the explanation, and hopefully the reader’s understanding, of these activities.

Asia Future Shock: Business Crisis and Opportunity in the Coming Years by Michael Backman (£18.00)Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0230006779]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “The transformation of China, India and much of the rest of Asia is seismic. Never has the region changed so much in such a short time. But change means opportunity and risk — big risk. Do you know what to expect? Is your business prepared? Are you ready?

The numbers are staggering:

Within ten years, funds under management in China will grow to at least US$1. 5 trillion; 100 million mainland Chinese tourists will pour out of China annually; Singapore will be a major haven for hidden offshore funds; Thai hospitals will be important providers of healthcare in Asia, the Middle East, and to underinsured Americans; and shortages of management talent in India and China will be even more acute.

Within 20 years, a billion more people will live in Asia’s cities than do so already; China will be a major sophisticated weapons exporter; Malaysia will have almost run out of oil; and divorce and family breakdown will mean that the size of the average Asian household will be substantially smaller.

Within 25 years, Japan’s population will have shrunk by 20 million; there will be 250 million more men than women in India and China; half the world’s nuclear reactors will be in Asia; the world’s biggest community of English speakers will be in China; and Asia-wide water shortages will see big hikes in food prices.

Asia Future Shock is designed for corporate strategists and scenario builders, to alert them to these and other major shifts, and to identify the opportunities and risks.”

From the cover: “Faith Popcorn’s name is synonymous with prediction: She has accurately foretold the business and personal trends that have defined our lives for the past two decades. Her frequent media appearances and groundbreaking national best-sellers, The Popcorn Report and Clicking, have made her familiar to most of the world. Called "the Nostradamus of marketing" by Fortune magazine, Popcorn now turns her incredible acumen to one of the most important segments in marketing: the female consumer.

Every day we read about a new scientific study that confirms the physiological differences between the sexes: how women’s brains are different; how they see, hear, acquire and use language differently. What we haven’t heard is how these differences manifest themselves in the marketplace — until now.

Today, women make 80% of all purchasing decisions. In EVEolution, Faith Popcorn shows you that you cannot succeed in business or successfully start one without understanding how to market to women. Whether you make cornflakes or concrete, pillows or pixels, she reveals why women must be your chief target. Even if you just want to understand the landscape of tomorrowland, this book is a must read.”

The Efficiency Experts: An Impartial Survey of Management Consultancy by Laura Tatham (£18.00)Publisher: Business Publications — 1964Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slightly tanned. A nice copy of a not-so-common title.Description: From the cover: “Are management consultants the answer to a businessman’s prayer? Or are they unprincipled rogues who, for an exorbitant fee, tell a company nothing it does not already know and saddle it with a lot of elaborate, unnecessary and expensive procedures?

To answer these extreme questions and many more between, Laura Tatham has obtained first-hand evidence from dozens of consultants and from as many clients, both satisfied and dissatisfied. This book is the result of her inquiries.

An impartial survey, The Efficiency Experts examines in detail what management consultants are, how they work and what they set out to accomplish. It suggests ways in which the businessman can make best use of consultants, and how he can assess whether or not a firm is likely to do a good job. A number of case histories describe both successful and unsuccessful consulting assignments.”

The Rebel Sell: How the Counter Culture Became Consumer Culture by Joseph Heath & Andrew Potter (£18.00)Publisher: Capstone — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1841126543]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “With the incredible popularity of Michael Moore’s books and films, and the continuing success of anti-consumer critiques like ADBUSTERS magazine and Naomi Klein’s NO LOGO, it is hard to ignore the growing tide of resistance to the corporate-dominated world. But do these vocal opponents of the status quo offer us a real political alternative?

In this wide-ranging and perceptive work of cultural criticism, Joseph Heath and Andrew Potter shatter the central myth of radical political, economic and cultural thinking. The idea of a counterculture — that is, a world outside of the consumer dominated one that encompasses us — pervades everything from the anti-globalisation movement to feminism and environmentalism. And the idea that mocking the system, or trying to ‘jam’ it so it will collapse, they argue, is not only counterproductive but has helped to create the very consumer society that radicals oppose.

In a lively blend of pop culture, history and philosophical analysis, Heath and Potter offer a startlingly clear picture of what a concern for social justice might look like without the confusion of the countercultural obsession with being different.”
