Handley Page Aircraft Since 1907 Revised by Derek N. James by C. H. [Christopher Henry] Barnes (£56.00)Publisher: London: Putnam — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0851778038]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1976] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “First heard in aviation a few years before the 1914-18 war, the name of Handley Page became one to conjure with when strategic bombing of Rhineland armament factories began in 1917 as a counter-blow to the German submarine blockade of the British Isles. After the war an O/400 and a V/1500 were the first two aircraft to fly all the way from England to India, and soon afterwards Handley Page pioneered commercial air transport services across the English Channel and in China, India and South Africa.

A new generation of twin- and four-engined monoplane bombers — Hampden and Halifax — emerged to challenge Hitler’s ambition between 1935 and 1945, giving rise in turn to the Hastings and Hermes transports of the 1950s; finally the nuclear age produced the Victor transonic bomber, which remains in service as the RAF’s long-range flight refuelling tanker A new line of smaller civil transports began with the acquisition in 1948 of Miles Aircraft Ltd and from the Reading factory stemmed the very successful Dart-Herald.

This book contains photographs, three-view drawings and data of every type of Handley Page aircraft built and flown, as well as many historic project drawings not previously published, and completes the author’s trilogy, which already includes Bristol Aircraft since 1910 and Shorts Aircraft since 1900 in the series.”

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.”

Shorts Aircraft Since 1900 by C. H. Barnes (revised By Derek N. James) (£36.00)Publisher: London: Putnam Aeronautical Books — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0851778194]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1967] Jacket illustration: Keith Woodcock's original painting shows Short Sunderland MR 5 RN273 of No 201 Squadron, RAF, taking off one evening from Sullom Voe, Shetland, in September 1952. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “From the first spherical balloons made by Eustace and Oswald Short, the author traces the brothers’ progress as engineers to the Aero Club till Wilbur Wright’s arrival in France in 1908 and their consequent change-over from balloons to aeroplanes — a decision endorsed by their eldest brother Horace, who joined them to set up the world’s first aircraft production line.

Their rapid expansion as aircraft suppliers to the Royal Navy and their notable progress with deck-launching, folding wings, buoyancy bags and sprung floats led to enormous production of the famous Short Type 184 during World War I, in which period the firm also built rigid airships.

Oswald Short’s pioneering work with a successful series of metal hulled flying-boats is described and their operational histories recorded.

Appendices list all Shorts’ constructors’ numbers, serials and registration marks. The book contains specifications for all Short types and variants, and complete lists to date of type designations and preliminary designs.

For this new edition the section on unbuilt projects has been expanded and the post-1945 story of Rochester’s last days and Northern Ireland’s new industry has been carried down to the present. The Skyvan and Belfast chapters have been up-dated and the 330, Sherpa and 360 have been added to the aircraft coverage, as well as notes on the forthcoming Tucano.”

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..”

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 century was nearly half over when the nuclear age began and the computer revolution swept the world. Throughout the 20th century, oil has been the great enabler providing from one basic resource a rainbow range of products.

Based upon unrestricted access to company archives, A Century in Oil marks the 100th anniversary of The “Shell” Transport and Trading Company one of the parents of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group. By most measurements Shell is the largest oil enterprise in the world, and the largest organization of any kind in Europe. In a phenomenal industry, Shell could fairly claim to be a phenomenon in its own right — global in scope but always human in scale. Century in Oil tells the frank and dramatic story of a company — daring, inventive, and sometimes controversial — whose work has touched, and continues to touch, all our daily lives.”

From the cover: “While the design and service histories of warships are well covered in print, until now there has been no single-volume guide to the companies and state yards which built them.

International in coverage, the book is divided by country, by region and by yard, and is illustrated throughout with maps and plans showing the locations of the builders and the ground layout of the most important shipyards at significant dates in their history. The book also includes details of naval bases and repair facilities, while a general introduction points out the salient features of warship development over three centuries, from wood and canvas to the technology of steam, steel and electronics in order to explain the changes in the world’s shipbuilding industries. This comprehensive guide has a place on the bookshelf of any naval historian or enthusiast.”

The Trains We Loved by David St John Thomas & Patrick Whitehouse (£14.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715302922]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Do you remember the days when the train journey was the best part of the holiday? When the great named expresses, hauled by the most powerful steam locomotives ever built, ran to time-honoured patterns? When trains formed of yesteryear’s rolling stock criss-crossed the land on well-ordered branch lines, calling at strings of picturesque stations commanded by proud station-masters?

Although many hark back to an even earlier age, half remembered or known from tales handed down by father or grandfather, few would argue that the finest days of railway travel began towards the end of the steam era and carried on into the period of nationalisation. BR continued to build steam locomotives on a grand scale, even manufacturing machines to the old companies’ designs, while many pre-Grouping locomotives were still busily at work. In the last days of steam many expresses were both heavier and faster, and used by a much wider cross-section of the population. And despite the pressures to conform, traditional practices and the individuality of the different parts of the railways still persisted. It is this era that The Trains We Loved evokes: the sights and sounds — even the smells — of the glory days of rail travel in Britain.

David St John Thomas and Patrick Whitehouse have produced an expansive text, rich in atmosphere but based on sound research and with substantial reference value. Portraits of the six regions and Ireland alternate with fascinating insights into how rail traffic was affected by the seasons, and the significance of holiday and school specials. Glimpses into station life shed light on the operating problems faced by staff and the devotion that went into solving them. Older readers will surely exclaim: ‘Yes, that’s exactly how it was!’ while those too young to remember will marvel at what has been lost

But The Trains We Loved is also a visual feast thirty-two splendid paintings, many previously unpublished, by Philip Hawkins, chairman of the Guild of Railway Artists, evoke the period in his own distinctive and unerringly accurate way. One hundred of the finest black and white railway photographs by Philip Alexander, Eric Treacy and other famous names make their own substantial contribution.”

Kit Kat, Fruit Gums, All Gold, Butterkist have all been as much a part of British life as the York companies that made them: Rowntree’s, Terry’s and Craven’s.

This new book is the first to chart the history of chocolate and confectionery manufacture and marketing by York companies, from their origins in the eighteenth century, through to the recent takeovers by Nestlé, Tangerine and Kraft.

Revolutionary new products such as Easter eggs in the 1870s and chocolate assortments in the 1890s are covered along with such crucial turn of the century developments as milk chocolate and the chocolate bar. The significance to the industry of the Quaker movement is discussed along with an examination of the impact of the world wars and the intervening depression.

The book is fully illustrated throughout, depicting all aspects of production, quality control, distribution and marketing: the packaging, design and branding developed by the companies broke new ground in branding and became an art form in itself with iconic images that still resonate today.

The book is intended for anyone interested in social history and the history of the food industry in Britain, the Quaker movement and social reform and manufacturing and marketing history; residents of and visitors to York will find in the book a fascinating glimpse of an integral part of York’s past, present and future.”

Counter-Intuitive Marketing by Kevin J. Clancy; Peter C. Krieg; (£13.00)Publisher: Free Press — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0684855550]Condition: Near Fine - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ.Description: How Great Results Come from Uncommon Sense. From the flap: “The authors trace the high rate of business failure back to bad marketing strategy, and the even worse implementation of that strategy. Excess testosterone, they argue, compels senior managers to make decisions intuitively, instinctively, quickly, and, unfortunately, disastrously. In this informative and enlightening book, Clancy and Krieg confront these “over-and-over again” marketers, who don’t have time to do it right the first time, but endless time and a company bankroll to do it wrong over and over again. The authors draw from their decades of consumer and business-to-business marketing experience to business-to-business marketing experience to describe the intuitive decision-making practices that permeate business today, and demonstrate how these practices lead to disappointing performance.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The persistence of the nation of Israel through the centuries, leaderless, landless, fugitive, persecuted, yet always surviving. And often itself producing world-leaders is one of the outstanding phenomena of our modern world. But why only Israel? Why not her kinsfolk and neighbours, the Edomites, Moabites and Ammonites, for example?

[First published 1975 by Gower Press Limited] From the cover: “Since it was first published in 1975 this Gower Handbook has established itself as an authoritative guide to what is becoming a crucial area of management activity. It is written both for the senior functional manager with cost responsibilities and for the accountant or finance director who designs and maintains cost control systems suited to the needs of users. This new and enlarged edition represents a radical revision. The entire text has been brought up to date and new material has been added on management audits, cost reduction methods, productivity schemes, environmental impacts, output budgeting and the role of costs in pricing. The structure of the Handbook, however, remains the same. Part One explains the nature of costs and the principles of cost control. Part Two reviews the most important approaches and techniques in the management of costs, while Part Three demonstrates how to apply these methods to the main management functions. Each chapter is followed by an annotated list of further reading, and the Handbook concludes with a Glossary of terms and definitions.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

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

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

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

Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: 2nd edition. [First Edition: 1959] From the cover: “This is a new, revised and enlarged edition of a smaller work published in 1959, and appears at a time when there is a mounting interest in the role, powers and duties of trade unions in the British economy and in the standard of living of the working man.

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

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

Making Cars At Longbridge: 100 Years in the Life of a Factory by Gillian Bardsley & Colin Corke (£11.50)Publisher: Stroud: The History Press — 2011Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0752437410]Condition: Very Good. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles;

From the cover: “Containing unique images from the official company archive, this book charts almost one hundred years of car-making at Longbridge near Birmingham. The Austin Motor Company was founded here by Herbert Austin in 1905 and it has since been home to the British Motor Corporation, British Leyland, Rover Group and latterly MG Rover. Its products include some of the most famous British models ever produced: the pioneering Austin Seven of the 1920s; the classic Mini, introduced to the world in 1959 with in astonishing production run of 41 years and a final tally of over 5 million; the Austin Metro, trumpeted as the ‘British Car to Beat the World’; and in later years the best-selling MG TF and elegant Rover 75.

The factory has been a major employer and an integral part of the local community since its foundation. The sad events of April 2005, when MG Rover went into administration, will radically change the landscape. But the area is now looking to the future, never forgetting its long and proud tradition of manufacturing.”

The Microelectronics Revolution: The Complete Guide to the New Technology and Its Impact on Society by Tom Forester (£10.50)Publisher: Basil Blackwell — 1981Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0631125728]Condition: Very Good. Description: 3rd impression. [First Edition: 1980] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “The Microelectronics Revolution is the most authoritative and comprehensive guide to the silicon chip revolution available on either side of the Atlantic.

The contributors to this volume, all experts in their fields, explain in turn the origins and nature of microelectronics, the characteristics of the microchip industry and the growing use of chips in everyday products.

The book details the impact of the new technology on society: separate chapters deal with automation on the factory floor, the word processing revolution in the office, the consequences for employment and the implications for industrial relations.

In the final section, writers such as Daniel Bell ponder the problems of a microelectronic age — the ‘Information Society’. The energy crisis, faltering economic growth, the “collapse of industries” and rising unemployment give this debate about the future shape of society an added sense of urgency.

With a guide to further reading at the end of each chapter and a clear, concise glossary of terms, this book provides the ideal basis for management, trade union and college courses on society and the new technology. It brings together natural and social scientists in a positive way on a uniquely important topic..”

Yet, unlike business management, entrepreneurship remains shrouded in mystery — possibly because no one believes it can be taught. In Goldfinger, Robert Heller dispels the myths surrounding entrepreneurship and explores this unique area of business practice. At every stage — from initial thought processes, through planning to implementation and beyond — the entrepreneur can benefit from the examples of others, and from clear precepts and practices. There are entrepreneurs who have never needed a lesson, who have acted from instinct rather than intellect, but tracking their actions invariably reveals a pattern, based on logic and observation, controlled by methods which can be easily learned and followed.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Description: From the cover: “Based on numerous interviews, this book reveals exclusive new information about how Apple innovates, deals with its suppliers, and is handling the transition into the post Jobs era.

In Inside Apple, Lashinsky provides readers with an insight on leadership and innovation. He introduces Apple business concepts like the ‘DRI’ (Apple’s practice of assigning a Directly Responsible Individual to every task) and the Top 100 (an annual event where that year’s top 100 up-and-coming executives were surreptitiously transported to a secret retreat with company founder Steve Jobs). Based on numerous interviews, the book reveals exclusive new information about how Apple innovates, deals with its suppliers, and is handling the transition into the Post Jobs Era. While Inside Apple provides a detailed investigation into the unique company, its lessons about leadership, product design and marketing are universal. Inside Apple will appeal to anyone hoping to bring some of the Apple magic to their own company, career, or creative endeavour.”

Managing to Communicate: Using Telecommunications for Increased Business Efficiency by Martin P. Clark (£9.50)Publisher: John Wiley & Sons — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0471941883]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Library stamp to the ½ title page, no further marks, otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “How efficiently does your company communicate? Many companies consider improving communications as one of their top business priorities. But while the recent rapid evolution of technology has offered a wide range of new opportunities, many businesses have been slow to reap the full benefits, bewildered about what it means for them and what first steps they can take.

This book sets out to redress the situation by laying down a framework for the management of business communications and the best practice in the use of telecommunications technology. Features include:

  • How to assess business communications needs.
  • Best telecommunications practice for human communication — including telephone, mobile telephony, voicemail, electronic mail, videoconference, ‘private’ and ‘virtual private’ networks.
  • Effective data networking—Local Area Networks (LANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs).
  • Tips for effective international networking.
  • Prospects for revolutionising business through emerging telecommunications technology.
The style is simple and pragmatic. The focus is telecommunications management, methods and tricks. The foundation is a thorough understanding of the technology — its strengths and its limits — and how it can be made to serve business. It is a book to raise expectations of what can and should be achieved.

For corporate telecommunications managers, technologists and communications engineers it will be an indispensable source of practical ideas and management techniques. For the marketing as well as the technical staff of manufacturers, network operators and communications providers serving corporate networks, it will be an invaluable opportunity to better understand customer needs. For the general business person and senior executive it will be a comprehensive source of advice — ‘how can I improve our communication?’ — ‘which investments make sense?’”

Pride of Perth: The Story of Arthur Bell & Sons Scotch Whisky Distillers by Jack House (£9.50)Publisher: Century Benham — 1986Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0091509416]Condition: Very Good.Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Pride of Perth is not just the history of an organization but of a unique relationship between a company and a city, in which the prosperity of the one has contributed to that of the other in an unprecedented way. Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd was established in Perth, the ancient capital of Scotland, in the year 1825, where its founder, T. R. Sandeman, opened a humble whisky merchant’s shop. Now the company’s sales exceed five million cases annually, a figure that increases year by year. In the story of the company’s remarkable success four men stand out: Arthur Bell, the archetypal Victorian industrialist; his son, the vigorous humanitarian Arthur Kinmond Bell; the strong, colourful William Govan Farquharson; and the dynamic, resourceful Raymond Miquel. Bell’s story is, however, not just an example of private enterprise at its best but one of public benefaction as well. In 1937, Arthur Kinmond Bell founded the Gannochy Trust. He set aside a certain amount of his income to provide work and housing for the people of Perth during the Depression. As the Company itself thrived, so did the Trust, and it still has a large holding in the equity of Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd. Pride of Perth is the story of a company whose performance is an investor’s dream, and a tale of human enterprise which Jack House relates with warmth and humour which make it highly readable.”Notes: Size: 9¼" x 6¼". 348 pages.

[ISBN: 0563360097]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

All except Apricot Computers have a turnover of less than £100m a year but their individual profiles are varied. While Apricot and Tri-ang toy company compete in a tough international market, family enterprises like Stoke-on-Trent’s Churchill group, the Morgan car company and Copella Fruit Juices face critical challenges closer to home. And the problems of the Shropshire District Health Authority, Sir John’s other port of call, are formidable. How do you manage an organisation upon which people’s lives depend within the constraints of a tight, fixed budget? Sir John Harvey-Jones works closely with senior management in the six organisations he visits, focusing on the major strategy questions facing them. How can they increase production while maintaining quality? Should they seek a merger partner in order to expand? Is it sensible to diversify into new areas? Is it wise to go for international growth, albeit in the face of stiff competition?”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 192 pages.
