Teamwork in Industry by F. J. Burns Morton (£63.00)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1948Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the head of the upper panel and closed tears to the lower. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Tanning and spotting to the blanks and endpapers. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “The author’s previous book, The New Foremanship, endeavoured to propound and analyse the problem of supervision in the light of present circumstances and likely trends. It was suggested that new methods of supervision were "necessary to bring social relationships, which in industry had remained static, into line with the great developments which had taken place in technical organisation; and further, what was needed in foremanship was also necessary in other managerial practices.

This present book, which is also addressed to all in authority and to those thinking employees who believe in the possibilities, of their jobs, sets out to show the direction of the second step. It examines the nature of better working relationships, and shows that harmonious, consciously directed working together leads to increased efficiency. Thus the name Teamwork in Industry.

The twelve chapters discuss such vital topics as the human factor and the influencing of human behaviour, co-operation and industrial relations, job satisfaction, selection and training of staff, incentives, leadership, supervision, discipline, absenteeism, working conditions and social organisation. The book concludes with a useful bibliography and index.”

Chinese Pottery and Porcelain: From Prehistory to the Present by S. J. Vainker (£49.00)Publisher: London: British Museum Press — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0714114480]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a vertical crease to the spint. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: Porcelain dish decorated with a white dragon, cobalt blue glaze.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [80]; Colour Photographs [100]; Black & White Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “Chinese Pottery and Porcelain is a comprehensive survey of the development of ceramics from the Neolithic period to the present day. Assessing the roles pottery has played in each dynasty throughout the history of China, the author also discusses its enormous impact on the ceramic industries of the rest of the world, where Chinese porcelain has been admired and collected for centuries.

From the earliest earthenwares to the exotic burial figures of the Tang, from the classic forms and subtle glazes of the Song to the famous porcelains created especially for export or imperial tastes, the book draws upon the extensive collections of the British Museum for lavish illustration.

The author considers the purposes for which the ceramics of each period were made, how their production was organised, and what effect local conditions might have had on their final forms. Incorporating contemporary commentaries, recent archaeological evidence from kiln sites and the most up-to-date scientific analysis, the book provides a valuable new account of China’s ceramic history.”

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").

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..”

Measurement of Responsibility: A Study of Work, Payment and Individual Capacity by Elliott Jaques (£33.00)Publisher: Tavistock Publications — 1956Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with several short tears, a little loss at the spine ends and a 1" closed tear to the head of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Small name sticker to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “THE MEASUREMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY presents perhaps the most funda mental approach yet achieved to the recurring individual and social stresses which disturb the industrial scene. Its theme is that one of the central factors underlying these disturbances is the absence of any objective and agreed method of assessing the re sponsibility carried by individuals at their work.

In the course of practical work by the author in collaboration with members of the Glacier Metal Com pany (an engineering concern), a re definition of the problem has emerged. What is experienced by individuals as level or weight or size of responsi bility has been observed to be con nected solely with the discretion they are required to exercise in doing their work. It has furthermore been dis covered that level of responsibility can be measured objectively and pre cisely by the maximum span of time during which an individual is expected to exercise discretion on his own account until his use of discretion is subjected to review.

By using this measurement — which he terms the time-span of discretion — Dr. Jaques has noted that individuals carrying the same maximum time-span in their work demand—quite independently — as a fair and just return for their work, precisely the same earnings and the same status, regardless of the type of work con cerned. He concludes from these findings that an unrecognized wage and salary structure is operated in tuitively in industry. But because it is unrecognized, departures from it are likely. And it is precisely such de partures which lead to trouble.

In the light of his findings, the author re-examines the meaning of work, of payment for work, and of the capacity of individuals to exercise discretion and discharge responsibility.

The methods described, and the results already obtained from their use, may indicate a route towards the resolution of some aspects of the industrial unrest and individual dis satisfaction with work which are such a crippling feature of modern industrial life. The book, in style as well as in content, is intended for economists, sociologists, political scientists, psychologists, and other social scientists — as well as industrial ists, trade unionists, government officials, and other administrators who are concerned with these problems.”

Red Hill: A Mining Community by Tony Parker (£28.00)Publisher: William Heinemann — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0434577715]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “The miners’ strike of 1984-5 was one of the longest and most bitter in Britain’s history, and polarised arguments and emotions with more force than any other industrial dispute for years. Six months after it ended, Tony Parker went to the north-east of England to discover the feelings and thoughts of a community around a coal-mine scheduled to be closed, but where there was still hope that the National Coal Board might reprieve it.

Talking with those on both sides of the dispute — miners, their wives, Union officials, policemen, shopkeepers, young people, Coal Board officials, schoolteachers and many others — he offers a truthful and moving portrait of life in a coalfield community today. If they close the pit, they’re closing down my life says a third-generation miner, one of 800 men there whose future, ten years ago, seemed completely secure. A nervous strikebreaker, ostracised by his workmates and feeling betrayed by the delay in transferring him to another pit, talks of the loneliness and isolation of his life. And an industrial chaplain denounces the blatant evil of government strategy during the strike. Tony Parker also talked with many miners’ wives: some of them felt they had discovered themselves for the first time and been invigorated and changed for ever by their involvement with women’s support groups, while others’ marriages had broken under the strain. From this wealth of personal stories, recorded and set down with characteristic sensitivity, a picture emerges of the strike’s causes and effects which is in sharp contrast to the view presented at the time by the media.

This is a vivid social document, giving an unforgettable portrait of Red Hill, a contemporary mining community.”

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.”

A study of the National Shipbuilding and Engineering dispute of 1957.

The College thereupon began to plan projects to be carried out within the terms of the grant, and work commenced in the autumn of 1956. When a national shipbuilding strike was called in March 1957, and followed by an engineering strike, it seemed such an important event within the field of industrial relations that other work was temporarily laid aside to permit us to concentrate on a study of the strike.

Bristol at Work by John Penny (£14.50)Publisher: Derby: The Breedon Books Publishing Company — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1859833551]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Small ding to the centre of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Facsimiles;

From the cover: “Bristol’s working life — the foundation of the economy of the city — has never before been the subject of a detailed, highly illustrated history. John Penny’s fascinating account of this vital aspect of the city’s past uses a remarkable selection of rare photographs and other illustrations to record the variety of businesses, trades, industries and services that generated Bristol’s wealth and gave a livelihood to its people. Although dealing with the origins of most of Bristol’s traditional industries, the starting point is really the mid-18th century when a number of concerns were established that flourished locally until the dawn of third millennium. He chronicles the rise and fall of businesses, processes and products that once fuelled the economy of a great city. Chapters are devoted to each of the main types of employment, within which are concise histories of the city’s most important companies and undertakings.

Over the centuries Bristol has established itself as a centre for industries as diverse as tobacco, chocolate, chemicals, brick-making, pottery, ship-building, motorcycles, publishing, banking, insurance, aviation and brewing. Throughout this time the city functioned as one of the foremost ports in the country. Conditions and processes in these trades and industries are described in vivid detail, and the author recalls the generations of Bristolians who spent their lives working in the city. Many readers will be surprised to learn of the huge variety of work carried out locally over the last 150 years and will be reminded of just how many well-known local firms have disappeared within their lifetimes. John Penny’s revealing, thoroughly researched and lively account will be essential reading for everyone who enjoys Bristol’s history.”

Modernity And Its Futures by Stuart Hall, David Held & Tony McGrew (£14.00)Publisher: Polity Press — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9780745609669]Condition: Very Good. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: A Later Printing. From the cover: “Modernity and its Futures is a major introductory textbook which examines the forces reshaping modern industrial societies and the new patterns, structures and relationships that are emerging in the contemporary world. The key debates about these changes are introduced and critically discussed: they include the transformation of Eastern Europe, the collapse of the USSR, globalisation, environmental challenges, post industrialism, cultural change and post-modernism. The book also looks back to the formation of modern societies, and of social science, to explore the character of ‘modernity’ and the relationship between ‘early-modern’ and ‘post-modern’ societies, and assess whether the paradigms and theories used to analyse ‘modern’ societies are adequate for social formations today. Designed as an introduction to modern societies and modern sociological analyses, this book is of value to students on a wide variety of social science courses in universities and colleges, and also for readers with no prior knowledge of sociology. Selected readings from major social theorists are integrated into each chapter, together with student questions and exercises..”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7¼". In the Understanding Modern Societies series.

Contest for the Heavens by Claus Jensen (£13.00)Publisher: The Harvill Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1860462162]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “In January 1986 the space shuttle Challenger, the latest and most sophisticated addition to a programme of space exploration refined over forty years since the development of the German V-2 rockets, blasted off from Kennedy Space Center only to explode 73 seconds into its flight. The bodies of the seven astronauts, two of them women, were later pulled up off the floor of the Atlantic. This many years into the programme, some thirty years after the Russians put a satellite into orbit, popular opinion accepted that American technological know-how had identified and mastered every key problem in putting hardware and humans into space, and riding a space shuttle was about as safe as getting on a bus. It was the Challenger disaster that prompted the big rethink. What the Presidential Commission of Inquiry discovered is that there is more to space technology than physics and mathematics: there is politics, public relations, finance, and a host of conflicting interests to reconcile. This investigation is about O-rings and tolerances, but it is chiefly about the people, the technologists, astronauts, industrialists and politicians who combined to send up the space rockets.”

Great Western Swindon by Tim Bryan (£13.00)Publisher: The Chalford Publishing Company — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 075240153X]Condition: Very Good. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs.

From the cover: “For almost 150 years, the influence of the Great Western Railway’s workshops in Swindon extended well beyond the great walls which surround much of the complex, which at its height, covered over 320 acres. Although the works has now closed, its influence on the town it helped to create is as strong as ever.

In this collection of old photographs drawn from the archives of the GWR Museum in Swindon, the reader is taken on a photographic tour of the great workshops and the huge variety of activities which went on in the factory are well illustrated with many evocative pictures mainly covering the period between 1900 and 1960.

Swindon was justly famous for the quality of the locomotives and rolling stock it produced, but this book also tells the story of the men behind the machines. Rare and unpublished photographs show something of life for the railway worker both inside and outside the works, and it is hoped that this selection will give the reader some idea of what it was like to live in what many see as the archetypal ‘Railway Town’.”

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with several short nicks and tears. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. Description:

From the cover: “The author of Sociology of an English Village has made a fascinating and readable study of some of the important crafts of the countryside: agricultural engineering, farriery, blacksmithing, thatching, and saddlery, etc. — and also of the organization, part governmental and part voluntary, which has been created in England to maintain and develop such crafts. The study describes and analyses in an objective way the craftsmen’s present conditions and forces which influence their development. Particular attention is given to the many serious problems which face the majority of rural craftsmen — both in those crafts which are flourishing and in the many more which are declining. An attempt is made also to predict future trends in each craft.

The Rural Industries Organization serves as the central theme of the study. This is the first attempt to examine from the outside an organization little known to the public and is the first major study of rural crafts in this country.”

A Golden Adventure: The First 50 Years of Ultramar by Paul Atterbury; Julia MacKenzie; (£12.50)Publisher: Hurtwood Press — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0903696355]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, more heavily so at the spine ends and corners, and slightly tanned. Boards slightly faded at the top edges. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Ultramar was formed in London in 1935 and 1985 is its golden anniversary. This book is the story of the Company — its Golden Adventure. From a small exploration company in Venezuela, it has grown into an integrated oil company operating on five continents.

Oil had been discovered by Ultramar in the hitherto unexplored llanos of central Venezuela just prior to the Second World War, but the outbreak of hostilities in 1939 cut off the availability of funds, equipment and expertise from Europe. Exploration and development came to a halt and the future looked bleak, but Ultramar, always resourceful, found an American partner and went on to develop the Mercedes field.

In the late 1950s, when all the teething problems had finally been resolved and the debts repaid, crude oil prices in the world plunged and Ultramar had to face the reality that there was more to the oil business than finding and producing oil and gas. A critical decision had to be made and typically Ultramar took a bold step. It decided to build and acquire refining, marketing and shipping facilities and become a fully integrated oil company. By the mid 1960s, this had become reality and it is the basic pattern which remains today.

Ultramar quite early foresaw the eventual nationalisation of Venezuelan oil and the consequent loss of its prime source of income. Through the 1960s and early 1970s, the Company gradually expanded its exploration and production activities into Canada, the U. K. , the U. S. and Indonesia. When the Venezuelan income was lost in 1975, Ultramar was able to take it in its stride. In fact, in the last two decades, Ultramar’s profits have risen steadily, and in 1984 attained a pre-tax profit of £285 million and an after-tax profit of £127 million.

The story of Ultramar is largely that of the men and women whose initiative, ambition and determination have made the Company a success..”

Millennium: Towards Tomorrow's Society by Francis Kinsman (£12.50)Publisher: W. H. Allen — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0491037449]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper at the head of the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: From the cover: “At the time of publication there are ten years to go before the year 2000.

Our society is divided into three groupings conveniently labelled agrarian, industrial and post-industrial. Each group reflects different values. The agricultural upholds yesterday’s beliefs in stability, changelessness and dependency; the industrial subscribes to economic growth, competitiveness, materialism and independence; whilst the post-industrial group is moving towards self-development, flexibility, protectiveness and inter-dependence as exemplified by the current Green revolution.

As we move towards the second millennium AD, these groups seem to be pulling against each other. We shall all have to decide which we want to belong to, irrespective of age, class, gender and region. But can our warring groupings collaborate to create a better society in the 21st century? Will the powerful business and political interests offer a lead in bringing them together? What can each of us do to make the next century a better place to live in and a hope for the future? These are tomorrow’s questions.

In this controversial and urgent discussion about the make up of our present and future society, Francis Kinsman forces us to face hard and unpalatable truths about what the human race must do if it is to survive into true adulthood.”
