China At War by Freda Utley (£249.00)Publisher: London: Faber & Faber — 1939Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little loss, heavy damp-marking to the reverse showing slightly at the panels. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Endpapers and blanks a little grubby. Previous owners' gift inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Map to the rear slightly mis-folded. Description: Illustrated by way of: Frontispiece; Black & White Photographs; Fold-Out Maps [1];

From the cover: “Freda Utley, who has just returned from the seat of war in the Far East, gives us in this book a vivid description of the Chinese war, as she has seen it from the Chinese side, backed by a brilliant expose of the Chinese political situation. One of the very few British newspaper correspondents in the war zone (she represented the News Chronicle), the only Englishwoman to visit the Yangtze fronts, and a world-renowned authority on Far Eastern matters, Miss Utley is quite exceptionally well informed, as readers of her last book, Japan’s Feet of Clay, know. A trained and accurate observer, she allows her sympathy with the Chinese cause to warm but not to warp the truth. A naturally straightforward writer, she makes her story easy to read, deeply interesting, and therefore deeply moving.”

Italian Intervention In The Spanish Civil War by John F. Coverdale (£149.00)Publisher: Princeton University Press — 1975Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is faded at the spine and creased at the join of the upper panel. Boards a little faded at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Using hitherto unavailable material from the Italian foreign ministry, Franco’s headquarters, and Mussolini’s secretariat, John F. Coverdale traces the development of Italo-Spanish relations from the beginning of the Fascist regime. His analysis reveals that traditional foreign policy outweighed ideological and internal political considerations in Mussolini’s decision making. John F. Coverdale finds that while Italy’s support was essential to Franco’s victory, Rome exercised very little influence on his decisions. The author concludes that participation in the Spanish Civil War was less important than is generally believed in determining Italy’s entrance into World War II on Hitler’s side, and that it did not significantly weaken her armed forces.”

The Rape of Greece: The King, the Colonels and the Resistance by Peter Murtagh (£129.00)Publisher: London, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Singapore & Toronto: Simon & Schuster — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0671710389]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Pages gently age-tanned with light spotting to the blanks and pastedowns. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “IN the early hours of 21 April 1967, Greece, the birthplace of democracy, became the home of the most repressive military dictatorship seen in Europe since the end of the Second World War. A junta of army colonels espousing extreme right-wing views seized power, outlawed political parties and began a seven-year reign of terror.

The Rape of Greece is about democracy betrayed. In laying bare the atrocities of the colonels’ regime, it reveals how this small European country became a pawn in the Cold War ideological battleground, and how agents of the Central Intelligence Agency sought to control Greek politics through their infiltration of the Greek royal family and armed forces.

But The Rape of Greece is also about people fighting back and ultimately winning. When the tanks of the neo-fascist junta rolled through the streets of Athens in 1967, resistance was not far behind. Here is the story of one resistance group, Democratic Defence, its leaders under siege in Athens and their foreign helpers. In the face of a brutal dictatorship that tortured its victims at will, this motley group of men and women — from England, France, Germany, Scandinavia and America — tirelessly smuggled resistance activists out of Greece and bombs and propaganda in. Their astonishing story of bravery and commitment, failures and triumphs, appears here for the first time in print.

Peter Murtagh, who spent five years researching and writing the book, combines the analytical insight of an award-winning investigative journalist with the narrative drive of a natural storyteller. Filled with political intrigue, adventure and larger-than-life characters, The Rape of Greece is a startling and compelling read, and an important chronicle of modern history.”

Savonarola: A Tragedy [In Verse] by Alfred Austin (£68.00)Publisher: MacMillan & Co. — 1891Binding: Hardback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding with mottling to both boards. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Heavy tanning to first and last blanks facing the pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: 2nd edition. [First Edition: 1881] A play based on the activities of Girolamo Savonarola. Savonarola was an Italian Dominican friar and an influential contributor to the politics of Florence from 1494 until his execution in 1498. He was known for his book burning, destruction of what he considered immoral art, and his perception of what he thought the Renaissance — which began in his Florence and was at its beginning — ought to become. He vehemently preached against the moral corruption of much of the clergy at the time, and his main opponent was Rodrigo Borgia, who was Pope Alexander VI from 1492, through Savonarola's death, to 1498.Notes: Size: 7¾" x 5".

Princeton and the Republic, 1768-1822: The Search For a Christian Enlightenment in the Era of Samuel Stanhope Smith by Mark A. Noll (£54.00)Publisher: Princeton University Press — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0691047642]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “Widely viewed during the Revolutionary period as a champion of both republicanism and evangelical Calvinism, the College of New Jersey nonetheless experienced great inner turmoil as its leaders tried to support the stability of the new nation by integrating sound principles of science and faith. Focusing on three presidencies — those of John Witherspoon, Samuel Stanhope Smith, and Ashbel Green — Mark Noll relates the dramatic institutional history of what is now Princeton University, a history closely related to the intellectual development of the early republic. Noll examines in detail the student rebellions and the trustees’ disillusionment with the college, which, despite Wither-spoon’s and Stanhope Smith’s efforts to harmonize traditional Reformed faith with a moderate Scottish enlightenment, led to the establishment of a separate Presbyterian seminary in 1812.

As a cultural and intellectual history of the early United States, this book deepens our understanding of how science, religion, and politics interacted during the period. Close attention is given to the Scottish philosophy of common sense, which Stanhope Smith developed into an educational vision that he hoped would encourage a stable social order.”

The Thatcher Era and Its Legacy by Peter Riddell (£48.00)Publisher: Blackwell — 1991Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0631182683]Condition: Good. Light reading creases to the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: First in this edition. [First: The Thatcher Decade, 1991] Jacket illustration: Mrs Thatcher leaving No. 10 for Buckingham Palace after resigning.

From the cover: “In 1989, in The Thatcher Decade, Peter Riddell provided the most wide-ranging and accessible analysis to date of the impact of Mrs. Thatcher’s government on the British economy and society in the 1980s. Now, following Margaret Thatcher’s sudden and dramatic departure from office in November 1990, he extends his classic account of the Thatcher years to include an assessment of her legacy and its consequences for Britain in the next decade.

Margaret Thatcher, one of the most remarkable of all British prime ministers, presided over a period of far-reaching change in Britain’s economy, industrial structure, labour market, society and place in the world. Looking beyond the personality of Mrs. Thatcher, Peter Riddell discusses how far these changes reflected the actions of the government, intended or unintended, rather than the influence of broader, longer-term trends common to other industrialized countries. Was there, in short, a Thatcher revolution? What are the consequences of her legacy?

The Thatcher Era is essential reading for all those interested in current politics.”

A King Betrayed: The Ill-fated Reign of Farouk of Egypt by Adel Sabit (£47.00)Publisher: London: Quartet Books — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0704327112]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Dust wrapper has a strong faded line the length of the join of the upper panel, otherwise pleasant. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Tarouk is quite possibly the most maligned and misunderstood monarch of the mid twentieth century, writes Adel Sabit. As a cousin to the King, government official and diplomat, the author was unusually well placed to observe at first hand the course of a reign that began in high hopes with the accession of the personable teenaged monarch in 1939 and ended in disillusion and exile in 1952.

The subsequent view of Farouk has tended to owe more to propaganda and the art of the caricaturists than it has to established fact. Adel Sabit is concerned to redress the balance, to show that Farouk, while he had his weaknesses and blind spots, also ruled with considerable pragmatic skill and held incorruptibly firm to principles relating to his perception of his own country’s best interests and those of the Middle East in general. The seeds of the fall of the monarchy, the author suggests, were more closely concerned with the fragmentation of Egyptian nationalist politics and the intrigues of rival cliques.

Adel Sabit casts a shrewd, ironic eye on the events of the period, while his recollections of the heyday of the Egyptian court and its grand social occasions, dominated by the elegant figure of the queen mother, Queen Nazly, are presented in vivid vignettes. The result is an entertaining personal view of a past era that is also sharp in its analysis of events culminating in the disastrous 1948 war with Israel.”

From the cover: “This is the story of Larry Gains, the Coloured Heavyweight Champion of the World.

It tells of his life in the rings of the world… riding the night trains of Canada… working the cattle boats… gambling in the casinos of the Riviera… Paris in the Twenties, Cologne and the Charleston, Leicester and the long Indian Summer.

It reveals the secrets of the champions… the twilight world of the Boston Tar Baby… the amorous ways of Harry Greb… how Battling Siki saw the light… the feuding with Jeff Dickson… and the chasing of Jack Sharkey.

It recounts the stories behind Gains’ greatest fights… the big breakthrough against the smooth-as-silk Bud German… the magic night with Camera… the tactical battle with the wily Mike McTigue… the taming of Big George Godfrey… and the denting of Jack Dempsey’s ten-thousand dollar nose.

And finally it explains how the pride and the politics of the day combined to end Larry Gains’ quest for what had become the impossible dream… the winning of the official heavyweight championship of the world.”

It traces the geographical phenomenon of hide-clusters - network of priest-holes in houses linked by the kinship or friendship of their owners.

The Barrier and the Javelin: Japanese and Allied Strategies, February-June, 1942 by H. P. Willmott (£36.00)Publisher: Annapolis: Naval Institute Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0870210920]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Distributors sticker covers publisher colophon on the title page. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “H. P. Willmott’s perceptive analysis of Japanese and Allied strategies in the Pacific war has set new standards for World War Two historians. The scope and depth of the research he did for the first book of his Pacific trilogy, Empires in the Balance, have earned him a reputation as a major chronicler of the period. With this second volume, Willmott continues to offer significant new material and interpretations that are certain to warrant further study.

The Barrier and the Javelin begins with a thoughtful assessment of the critical situation in which Japan found herself in the spring of 1942. Even by that early stage of the Pacific war, the fundamental weakness of the Japanese effort was evident. Japan had gone to war with little more than a five-month plan of campaign and the conviction that she could not be defeated by enemies who were her moral inferiors. Her intention had been to conquer territories essential to her economic survival and then fight a defensive war that would exhaust her enemies and lead them to a negotiated settlement. By the spring Japan’s leaders were becoming uncom-fortably aware that their enemies would not negotiate and that they themselves lacked the plans, and perhaps the means, to make them change their minds. Willmott sets out the arguments over strategy that plagued the Japanese naval command as it tried to formulate a coherent response to this potentially disastrous situation. In so doing he suggests that the weaknesses of the command’s decision-making process kept the Japanese from taking the one course of action that could have changed the outcome of the war, and were responsible for the ill-considered plan of campaign that began to fall apart in the Coral Sea in May’and ended in disaster four weeks later at Midway.

The book, however, is not confined to an examination of Japanese policymaking. Just as Empires in the Balance provides & critical appraisal of the moves made by all the combatants during the first five months of the war, so The Barrier and the Javelin places the Allied part of the February-June 1942 record alongside that of the Japanese. In doing so, it examines why the British and their dominions were totally unable to put together a proper Pacific policy in the opening phase of the war, and why the Americans came to accept a commitment to fight in the southwest Pacific when this area had barely figured in their prewar calculations. American intelligence gathering — Operation Magic — and its effect on the progress of the war are also described in full.

Willmott follows his assessment of the Allied situation with a detailed analysis of the battle of the Coral Sea and the action off Midway, which at last places these battles in their proper context. Debunking long-held beliefs about the com-parative strengths of the Japanese and Allied forces, he contends that in both battles the weaker fleet was defeated, not victorious as most accounts suggest. He further argues that if Japan was indeed fated to lose the war, then her defeat at Midway can hardly be regarded as the decisive battle so many claim it to be. Inevitability and decisiveness, he points out, are mutually exclusive terms.

Many readers will find Willmott’s treatment of the Japanese side of the battle of Midway an intriguing alternative to other books on the subject. He reveals some important new information that finally explains the inconsistencies found in previous accounts. His condemnation of Admiral Yama-moto’s inept handling of the entire fiasco is unusually clear and hard-hitting.

This view of the flow of events in the first half of 1942 provides one of the most comprehensive, balanced and readable studies of the period ever written. It will be of enduring interest to general readers as well as professional historians and students of World War Two.”

Soviet Risk-taking and Crisis Behavior: A Theoretical and Empirical Analysis by Hannes Adomeit (£34.00)Publisher: London, Boston & Sydney: George Allen & Unwin — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0043350437]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper nicked at the top corner of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: From the cover: “Under what conditions is the Soviet leadership prepared to take risks in the conduct of its international affairs? Does Soviet behaviour in crises conform to the commonly accepted ‘rules’ or ‘conventions’ of crisis management? How important are threats, ultimatums and military pressure for the achievement of Soviet objectives? These are questions which have often been asked in the West by political leaders and academic specialists, but they have never been systematically analyzed. In this book Hannes Adomeit provides such an analysis.

Detailed examination of the two Berlin crises forms the empirical background against which comparisons are made with the role of the Soviets in other crises-in Cuba, the Middle East, in Vietnam and in Afghanistan -as well as with patterns of Soviet intervention in Eastern Europe. Dr Adomeit shows that successive Soviet leaderships, whether headed by Stalin, Khrushchev or Brezhnev, have acted as though guided by a set of firm ‘operational principles’. These principles and patterns of Soviet crisis behaviour are explained by the interplay of four factors: an ideology requiring constant political initiative; a wide interpretation of security interests; diverse and growing military power; and the centralizing features of the Soviet system. Together they add up to certain advantages over Western pluralist systems; in particular, they can result in successful strategic deception and surprise.

Soviet Risk-taking and Crisis Behaviour will help the general reader to understand the nature of the Soviet challenge in the years ahead and the practitioner of politics to chart the difficult but necessary course between dangerous complacency and equally dangerous over-reaction to Soviet initiatives. Above all, it will be indispensable for students and specialists in international and comparative politics, since it relates theoretical notions of risk and crisis to actual Soviet foreign policy-combining strategic analysis with bureaucratic models of decision-making.”

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 American Century: People, Power and Politics: An Illustrated History by Harold Evans with Gail Buckland & Kevin Baker (£30.00)Publisher: Jonathan Cape — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0224052179]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “The British may have claimed the 19th century by force, and the Chinese may cast a long shadow over the 21st, but the 20th century belongs to the United States. This is the premise behind Harold Evans’s robust, sweeping, spectacularly illustrated account of the people and events that gave rise to America’s political and cultural dominance.

Evans begins in the 1880s, when it was still uncertain whether America, with its diverse peoples, manifold beliefs and impossible ideals, would even survive its own democratic experiment or manage to reconcile an increasingly headlong materialism with the original virtues of the Republic. He shows how, from that time forward, the citizens of the United States saw increases in wealth and personal freedom unequalled in history, paralleled by the growing power and influence of the country abroad. He covers upheavals and victories with succinct and insightful prose, aided by a splendid array of 900 fresh, remarkable images. Here are the Presidents, nineteen of them, from a Civil War general to a movie star; here are Al Capone and J. Edgar Hoover, Martin Luther King and the Ku Klux Klan.

The American Century is an epic work, an incomparable telling of the rise of the most powerful nation in the world.”

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps [1];

From the cover: “Sunday 6th March 1966 was the saddest day in the history of the Somerset & Dorset Railway — the day when the Beeching axe fell and the final passenger trains powered their way over the Mendip Hills and across the Somerset Levels.

Forty years on, there is life again. No fewer than four separate organisations are working hard to preserve all that this cross-country branch stood for. And thanks to the continuing efforts of Alan Hammond to record the memories and images of those who worked on the line, more people than ever have discovered the magic of the S&D. This splendid fifth album of photographs and stories brings alive again what has made the railway so special for so many and provides a most fitting 40th anniversary celebration.

This was truly a family line, both for the many generations of different families who gave their working lives to it and in the spirit of unity which pervaded all its operations. It is that spirit which shines out from the wonderfully evocative photographs in the book.

Nowhere is that spirit of the S&D better displayed than in the accounts of the six young firemen as they learnt the joys and trials of coaxing their locomotives over some of the toughest terrain and in so doing established long-lasting friendships with many a driver.

Forty years on, too, we celebrate England’s great World Cup football triumph and it is fitting that one of the heroes of 1966, Alan Ball, should write the delightful foreword for this Celebration.”

First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The challenges of learning and teaching theory in the social sciences have been a subject of concern and debate since these subjects first emerged as a part of the higher education canon. However, in recent years, far reaching changes inside and outside the university have compounded such concerns in the minds of both students and teachers as higher education is re-organised within the logic of neo-liberalism. The authors in this volume discuss these contemporary contexts and reflect upon the difficulties and opportunities that arise in the classroom and beyond. This monograph enables authors from several nations — the United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand and South Africa — with a shared concern about the state of the university at present and the challenges that this offers for them and their students, to consider how engagement with social theory can help develop the kinds of critical evaluation skills that students will need in the world they enter after graduation. The book therefore represents essential reading for anyone considering how to encourage students and lecturers to consider the relevance of learning and teaching social theory for their appreciation of the world today..”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¾".

From the cover: “This book is based on extensive recorded interviews with two Spaniards who grew up in peasant villages of Asturias during the 1930s. Their account provides an unusual grassroots insight into the poverty and social tensions of local life which eventually led to civil war. The dramatic years of the war itself are followed by an account of the terrible experience of exile in French concentration camps after 1939, of their participation in the Resistance, the post-1945 opposition to the Franco regime and the eventual return to their home villages and a society transformed by decades of dictatorship. This stoical and often moving account of the experience of war and exile by two ordinary combatants provides a fascinating insight into the dynamics and long-term implications of the Spanish Civil War.”

Wisdom Of The Wild: How We Treat Our Planet by Anon. (£26.50)Publisher: Word Wide Fund for Nature — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Presentation plate to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “There is no turning back. There never has been in history. Two hundred million American citizens are not going to leave the USA just to give back to the Indians the land that was stolen from them. The Inuit in Greenland are not about to climb into their kayaks to paddle back up the river of history. The wisdom with which “wild” peoples have animated their world cannot be fetched back at will. Nevertheless, there is a great deal to learn. This, for example: how, on the threshold of the third millennium, can we live once again in a finite world without consuming it? Pedagogues tell us that children need elements of the wild and disorder in order to become mentally sound adults. The child in its den is said to be subconsciously remembering the feeling of safety which our ancestors experienced in caves in the childhood of mankind. In Sweden, they let children fly back to the beginnings of humanity on the wings of their imagination, as it were. The wild as a tonic.

Henry David Thoreau’s suggestion that every major city should have some wildness in its vicinity (because otherwise its inhabitants would revert to the wild) is almost one hundred and fifty years old — and highly topical in view of the frustration which people feel in our concrete bunkers.

An end must be put to the dominance of the right angle. Protection programmes for spacious areas of wilderness have one purpose, among others, namely to preserve the charm of untouched nature. Real-life magic! Magic, or rather cheap tricks — that is what our oh-so-en-lightened world thought of the healing knowledge of the jungle Indians for such a long time. Until, at the sight of the burning rain forests, they realised that the best pharmacy in the world was going up in flames.

The awareness of its utility should not be the rescuers’ sole motive, however. If we only take up arms in defence of the earth where our immediate living conditions are threatened, we shall soon be sitting amidst the ruins of a barren planet. It is (unfortunately, some would say) not the case that when the trees die, man also dies immediately. There are no trees in the Mongolian steppes, but they are still not dead. The fact is, as an Indian chief once said: “After the deaths of plants and animals, you will die of the great loneliness in your hearts.” An appeal has been filed against this death sentence. This book contains a few passages from the defence counsel’s speech.”

Description: From the cover: “The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing political transformation, loosely termed democratisation, at a pace unparalleled in history. This geographical grouping of nations with extremely disparate histories and cultures is also undergoing profound economic change.

The People’s Representatives surveys one defining aspect of political systems during a period of considerable stress. Twenty-three scholars from across the region examine the workings of the process by which competing interests gain a place at the bargaining table. In doing so, they indicate the points where traditional approaches to democratic governance are and are not meeting the demands placed upon them. They describe a moment in the development of new hybrid forms of political expression which test the capacity of current theories based on Western experience.

These studies place these forms of political expression within the context of their constitutional arrangements. They also suggest the extent to which countries in the Asia-Pacific region share common goals. They demonstrate how electoral systems play a significant role in reducing conflict in rapidly changing societies and thereby contribute to political stability and steadily expanding prosperity.

The nations of this dynamic region are playing a growing role in global politics. The People’s Representatives provides an understanding of their domestic politics and highlights some of the serious challenges that remain.”

Far Eastern File: Intelligence War in the Far East, 1930-45 by Peter Elphick (£24.00)Publisher: London: Hodder & Stoughton — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0340665831]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “During the 1930s the Far East was a fertile hunting ground for the espionage and counterespionage agents of many nations, especially for those of Great Britain, the United States and Japan, as well as of Germany, Italy and the USSR. Sometimes they worked in remote places on the border of Manchuria and Russia, or in the jungles of Malaya and Thailand; while others operated in Tokyo, Singapore, Manila and Hong Kong, not to mention that international melting pot and powder keg, Shanghai.

Throughout, the author emphasises the Japanese subversion and fifth-column activity; but in the background of operations were the spies of the communication airwaves, the so-called Signals Intelligence (or Sigint) operators who plucked diplomatic, consular, military and naval coded messages out of the ether and passed them to the cryptanalysts. At the centre of the British Sigint and intelligence co-ordination operations was the Far East Combined Bureau, a highly secret organisation, established in Hong Kong in 1935, which is here researched for the first time through recently released material from the Public Record Office and unpublished accounts of surviving officers. These reveal its impact and that of its successors on the eventual outcome of the Pacific war.

Using the latest published information, Peter Elphick illuminates fascinating new facets of many important issues including Britain’s appeasement policy towards Japan, the Melville Cox affair, the S. S. Automedon incident and the conspiracy theories which claim Churchill and Roosevelt had prior knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Peter Elphick’s unrivalled knowledge of the period and locale combined with his research into official intelligence material only released in the 1980s make Far Eastern File a book of unique importance and lasting interest.”

Freedom And Organization 1814-1914 by Bertrand Russell (£24.00)Publisher: George Allen & Unwin — 1934Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed with loss to the top edge of both panels and the spine ends. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “This book covers the period 1814-1914, and aims at showing the weakening of old forms of authority as a result of Liberal assaults and the more or less unintended growth of new forms of organization owing to economic and technical developments. Its subject is thus the interaction of theory and practice in the politics of the hundred years between the fall of Napoleon and the Great War. It opens with the Congress of Vienna and the Principle of Legitimacy, the Holy Alliance and the domination of Metternich. It then passes to economic theory from Malthus to Marx, as the outcome of early industrialism and the source of Radical and Socialist politics. American development is considered in two phases: the growth of democracy from Jefferson to Lincoln, and the transition from free competition to monopoly in the period from the Civil War to the Great War. Returning to Europe, the Principle of Nationality, as an outcome of Liberalism, is shown as a source of international anarchy. Bismarck, German unity, and German economic development lead to conflicts with Slav Nationalism and British trade; the British seek compensation in Africa, the Russians in the Far East. The growth of national monopolies in industry leads to economic imperialism, identifying economic and national rivalry, and increasing the importance of the State. Concentration of national power grows as International organization disappears, and war results.”Notes: Size: 9" x 5¾". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 528 pages.

Crime Or Disease? by Antony Flew (£23.00)Publisher: London: Macmillan — 1973Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0333114094]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier tanning to the spine. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Previous owners' gift inscription to the first blank. The pages are somewhat tanned, if tight, and a little musty. Description: From the cover: “Professor Flew here attacks the present gross over-extensions of the notion of mental disease on both sides of the Atlantic. He defends human dignity and responsibility against the suggestion that we are all, or most of us, ‘sick, sick, sick’. In particular, he challenges the paternalist pretensions of those who claim a right to push and manipulate people because these people are allegedly sick, and so irresponsible.

A key idea of this book is that, in a typical ordinary disease, it is the patient who complains of the disease rather than someone else who complains about the patient. Taking this as a paradigm, it is preposterous, Flew contends, to say that most homosexuals, for instance, are mentally ill. If an analogy with physical disease is to be the basis for urging that mental disease be similarly excused, this basic supposed analogy must not be forgotten when attempts are made to elucidate the concept of mental disease.

This may seem obvious, but the author is able to cite plentiful evidence to show that many who should know better get into great, and even dangerous, muddles over the nature of mental disease — and this through their failure to consider how what they propose to call mental disease does, and does not, resemble syphilis, measles, etc.

Flew seeks in this study to complement the work of Dr Thomas Szasz, looking as a philosopher at problems which Szasz discusses as a psychiatrist. Part I (Survey of the Logical Geography ) is of particular interest to students of philosophy and politics in that it relates modern discussion of the problem to the Plato of The Republic. It also takes note in this context of Samuel Butler’s Erewhon. The book will also be of direct relevance to students of Social Science (including penology), Social Administration, Philosophy of Education and Psychiatry.”

Hitler's Thirty Days to Power: January 1933 by Henry Ashby Turner, Jr. (£23.00)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780747530046]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Every one has heard of Hitler. Most know he was the dictator of Germany who caused the Second World War and the slaughter of millions of Jews. But how Hider got power is another matter. Few understand the way in which his dictatorship came about. Because Germany was a republic when Hitler became chancellor, many assume that he was democratically elected by a majority of the German people. Such was not, however, the case. His rise to power was far more complicated and, above all, more chancy. It was, in fact, a very near thing that could have been thwarted at numerous points. Much of Hitler’s story has been ably recounted in previous books, but no one has yet subjected to thorough scrutiny the dramatic events of the crucial month of January 1933, at the end of which Hitler became head of the German government. To tell that story is the task of this book.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". [XII] 255 pages.

From the cover: “HERE is the real-life adventure story of a man who landed in Africa at the age of thirty, disappointed in love, thwarted in ambition, and almost penniless. Destiny drew him adventuring to Lake Nyasa, where he organised a handful of traders and missionaries in their fight against the Arab slave traders and led them single-handed in a night-attack on the enemy stockade. Undeterred by a wound that pained him all the rest of his life, he blazed a trail to the Kingdom of Buganda, pressed on into virtually unknown territories further north, and, in a later journey, trekked to the heart of the savage Kalahari Desert. Then, at thirty-eight, he found his true life’s task in Nigeria, where he raised the West Africa Frontier Force, curbed the cruel and turbulent Emirs of the North and, in the years that followed, laid the foundations of good government on which the country has grown into a modern state with democratic institutions, looking forward to complete independence.

This man was Frederick Dealtry, Lord Lugard, the first and perhaps the greatest of Britain’s colonial administrators. Yet renowned as he was for his tremendous administrative achievements in West Africa, he was no ready-made governor, tailored in Whitehall. Nothing among his later successes is more vital and enthralling than the tale of those early African years — years of hardship and loneliness borne with incredible courage.

The story of these years under the harsh African sun is recounted in this stirring biography.”

From the cover: “Long before Alfred became King of England, there was a mighty Arab empire in the East. For the Arabs, inspired by the teachings of Mohammed, had swept out of the barren deserts of the Arabian Peninsula and conquered country after country. Their lands stretched from Gibraltar to China, and for a while Baghdad was the crossroads of the world. Fur traders from the steppes of Russia mingled with spice merchants from India and China in the great bazaars.

This authoritative book brings alive for children and their parents the Golden Age of the Arab Empire which ended violently many hundreds of years ago, but preserved for us much of the learning of Greece and the ancient world.”
