Spontaneous Healing by Andrew Weil (£9.50)Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0316876119]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned with some creasing to the top of a couple of the leaves.Description: From the cover: “Spontaneous healing is not a miracle or a lucky exception, but a fact of biology, the result of the natural healing system that each one of us is born with. This simple, but profoundly revolutionary, concept is the basis for this brilliant book by Dr. Andrew Weil, one of the most skilled, articulate, and important leaders in the field of health and healing.

As Dr. Weil explains, mechanisms of self-diagnosis and self-regeneration are embedded in every level of our biological organization, ready to become active when the need arises. Drawing on fascinating case histories from his own practice as well as medical techniques he has observed in his travels around the world, Dr. Weil shows how spontaneous healing has worked to resolve life-threatening diseases, severe trauma, and chronic pain. But it is also the essential element in the maintenance of our basic daily health. To this end, the book outlines an eight-week program that each of us can use to alter our diet, avoid environmental toxins, and reduce stress in order to enhance our innate healing powers.

The best medicine does not merely combat germs or suppress symptoms, but rather works hand in hand with the body’s natural defences to manage illness. Building on this fundamental truth and tapping into the intricate interaction of mind and body, Dr. Weil arrives at a major new synthesis of conventional and alternative medical treatments. At once practical and inspiring, Spontaneous Healing gives each one of us the power and the wisdom to draw on the sources of health we hold within.”

Unfashionable Economics: Essays in Honour of Lord Balogh by Edited by Paul Streeten (£9.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297001051]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper slightly frayed with two short, closed, tears to the head of the upper panel. Price Clipped. Top corner of the first blank clipped.Description: From the cover: “This book of essays honours Thomas Balogh in the year of his sixty-fifth birthday. The essays are written by distinguished economists who all share the experience of having been inspired by his wealth of ideas and encouraged by his example to question the orthodox and unfashionable presuppositions of economics.

One of Thomas Balogh’s main contributions since the war has been in the field of development economics, where he has stressed the importance of inequality and dominance in international relations. The first two sections of the book are devoted to this subject. In the first section — entitled International Inequality and Dualism — Michael Lipton contributes the first essay in which he discusses the effects of farm-price stabilisation on income stability and income distribution. William Barber reassesses the theory of ‘dualism’ as an analytical tool in the situation of post-colonialism in underdeveloped countries, and Thomas Balogh’s theories on the gap between the rich and poor countries and the factors working against a closing of differentials are given systematic statistical backing by Wilfred Beckerman and Robert Bacon in their essay. Keith Griffin suggests ways of tackling underdevelopment by internal reform in his examination of the Guatemala coffee economy, and Dudley Seers discusses the economic problems of graduate migration from underdeveloped countries.

The responsibilities of the richer countries and the problems involved in carrying them out are discussed in the second section on Aid and Trade. In the first essay Vijay Joshi examines the assumptions used in those economic models which make an analytical distinction between saving and foreign exchange restraints, and points out some dangers. Some optimal policies to promote industrialisation are put forward by the late V. K. Ramaswami and Michael Stewart and Jagdish Bhagwati consider the costs of foreign aid in their contributions. The section is concluded with an essay by Michael Posner on the relations between innovation, foreign investment and international trade, and the consequences for poorer countries of high investment capacity in wealthier economies.

In the third section — on the State and the Economy — Gunnar Myrdal sees the sociological factors in underdevelopment as reasons for harder government intervention in the underdeveloped economies. In his contribution, Michael Shanks gives his views on the use of economists in Whitehall, Roger Opie considers the effectiveness of monetary policy and David Henderson raises some issues and problems concerning cost-benefit analysis as it relates to policy-making in government, putting forward some of his own suggestions. Finally in this section W. G. McClelland outlines the causes and consequences of the recent increase in management education in Britain, and analyses its value together with the related problems of finance and teacher supply.

Economic theory is the subject of the last section, and Lester Thurow follows up Thomas Balogh’s thesis regarding the inadequacy of neoclassical production functions in his essay, while Richard Fortes considers the problem of inefficiency in the presence of externalities.”
