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.”

Condition: Very Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper edgeworn and faded with heavier fading to the spine. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Later Printing. From the cover: “WRITTEN by a Professor of Political Science, this lively and critical book not only introduces the reader to the study of the British Constitution, but also presents a shrewd and provocative discussion of both the virtues and dangers of the English system. In his survey, Dr. Curtis deals with each of the organs of government from the Crown to the Commons, examining their merits and defects and making many suggestions for improvement. He has included as well chapters on the Voter and Public Opinion, the Commonwealth, Public Corporations, and a particularly stimulating section on the Civil Service, a much neglected branch of government. The author has kept descriptive and historical elements to a minimum and has tabulated his discussion so that the book is a model of directness. Many diagrams, illustrating the distribution of power and the administrative functions, are included for easy reference. This book will prove of especial use to students taking the Diploma in Public Administration and similar examinations. It will also be invaluable to anyone wishing to study our system of government, providing them with a handbook which is also sound critical analysis.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

The Nature of Politics by J. D. B. Miller (£6.50)Publisher: Penguin — 1971Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0140207368]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with a small sticker and reading creases to the spine. Ticket stub affixed to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “Professor J. D. B. Miller contends in this book that politics is a basic human activity. He writes: ‘If we are to understand politics, we must recognize that it consists of conflict (sometimes moderate, sometimes extreme) over the use of government; that this conflict is engendered by the many forms of diversity of condition, status and opportunity which exist; and that this is a permanent condition of mankind. It follows that there will always be politics of some kind or another.’ In a clear and penetrating analysis of his subject Professor Miller examines both the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of politics and shows how interests, institutions, and ideas operate to produce political results.”Notes: Jacket designed by Alan Aldridge.

When Shrimps Learn to Whistle: Signposts For The Nineties by Denis Healey (£6.50)Publisher: Penguin — 1991Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0140148086]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “All the major institutions of the post-war scene — NATO, the European Community, the United Nations — have been turned upside down. The stock-market crash of ‘Black October’ 1987 revealed the desperate instabilities of the global financial system. In this maze of intricate new problems and opportunities Denis Healey speaks with unique authority. A major political journalist in the late 1940s and 1950s, a leading player on the world stage for a quarter-century, he is now far and away the most distinguished Opposition commentator on foreign affairs. In an added new chapter he looks at the wider implications of the Gulf War, the unification of East and West Germany, and the continuing unrest in Eastern Europe. In When Shrimps Learn to Whistle he offers a typically trenchant set of ‘signposts’ to help us all face the key international issues of the 1990s.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 283 pages.

Race, Culture and Intelligence by Edited by Ken Richardson; David Spears; Martin Richards; (£5.50)Publisher: Penguin — 1972Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0140806504]Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps and slightly faded. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Are differences between black and white people in the kind of intelligence that 10 tests measure due mainly to genetic inheritance? Can social-class differences be explained in the same way? Few questions have stirred so much heated debate as the controversy, revived by an article by Arthur Jensen in 1969, over the origins of mental ability — and no question has graver implications for the individual, for educational policy, and for social justice. No answers, counter-questions (not least perhaps about the reasons for the question itself) can be attempted without first grappling with the concepts that lie behind it. The aim of Race, Culture and Intelligence is to do just that — to disentangle in turn the four central notions of intelligence, race, heredity and environment in contributions from psychology, biology and sociology that do not falsify the complexities of the issues, yet offer guidance that the non-specialist can follow.Notes: Jacket designed by Dered Birdsal.
