Freedom and Limit: A Dialogue Between Literature and Christian Doctrine by Paul S. Fiddes (£128.00)Publisher: Macmillan — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0333491424]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “Writers of novels, plays and poems use their imagination with an evident freedom; by contrast, makers of Christian doctrine seem to impose limits, reducing the open-ended meaning of images to exact concepts and summing up the loose ends of stories in one unified Story. But the author of this study sets out to show how images and stories in literature can actually help the theologian to make doctrinal statements, while at the same time careful theological thinking can assist the critical reading of literary texts. Such a dialogue is worked out in studies of the poetry of William Blake and Gerard Manley Hopkins, and the novels of D. H. Lawrence, Iris Murdoch and William Golding. Here the tension between the freedom of imagination and the limits of doctrine is seen to be only a part of more far-reaching tensions of freedom in human life, which account for a sense of ‘fallenness’ and which a dialogue between literature and Christian doctrine can do much to illuminate. In all this, the relationship between imagination and revelation is never far from the centre of discussion.”

Conflict of Norms in Public International Law: How Wto Law Relates to Other Rules of International Law by Joost Pauwelyn (£68.00)Publisher: Cambridge & New York: Cambridge University Press — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0521824885]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “One of the most prominent and urgent problems in international governance is how the different branches and norms of international law interact and what to do in the event of conflict. With no single ‘international legislator’ and a multitude of states, international organisations and tribunals making and enforcing the law, the international legal system is decentralised. This leads to a wide variety of international norms, ranging from customary international law and general principles of law, to multilateral and bilateral treaties on trade, the environment, human rights, the law of the sea, etc.

Pauwelyn provides a framework on how these different norms interact, focusing on the relationship between the law of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and other rules of international law. He also examines the hierarchy of norms within the WTO treaty. His recurring theme is how to marry trade and non-trade rules, or economic and non-economic objectives at the international level.”

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").

It was an upset in the routine of 12 Regent Crescent, but she maintained to herself that she had enjoyed it.

She bought herself a new hat to wear when she went to meet the child at the station. The hat was to be a symbol, something that marked the beginning of the change that must come to the house with Elisabeth’s arrival.

Henry, her husband, would see her in her new role of aunt, a being set in authority, a fount of comfort, for of course she would soon establish the right relationship with this unknown child.

It was a good thing, it must be a good thing, that she should have charge of Grace’s daughter for a while…”

Architecture and the Environment: Contemporary Bioclimatic Buildings by David Lloyd Jones (£24.00)Publisher: London: Laurence King — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1856691039]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Publishers shrink wrap, now removed, has caused light rippling to the head of both panels. Dust wrapper slightly tanned on the verso. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Cutaways; Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “Sustainable building has commonly been seen as separate from mainstream architecture and has been accorded the status of worthy but dull design. Adopting the term bioclimatic in preference to green to describe buildings which are inspired by nature and have a clear strategy for minimizing environmental depredation, this book seeks to revise this judgement. Introductory chapters trace the history of bioclimatic design in architecture, exploring the relationship between architecture and the natural environment.

An examination of three projects currently under construction points to future directions in bioclimatic architecture. The contemporary projects featured in the main section of the book are diverse — from office buildings which flaunt their measures for energy conservation in the form of external solar shading, wind towers, glazed atria and photovoltaic modules, to a church built from tubes of recycled paper and a museum constructed in timber and inserted in a woodland setting. Architects whose work is featured include Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban, Edward Cullinan, Foster and Partners, Herzog and Partners, Glenn Murcutt and Arata Isozaki.”

Logic Circuit Design by Alan W. Shaw (£20.50)Publisher: Fort Worth: Saunders College Publishers — 1993Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0030507936]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Diagrams;

From the cover: “With Shaw’s conversational writing style, sophomore engineering and computer science majors will find this text’s coverage of combinational and sequential logic design easy to understand and a pleasure to read. The text is remarkably clear and provides extensive examples. Shaw maintains an ongoing relationship with industry, which is reflected in the text’s primary goal of preparing students for entry into the workplace — ready to design.

The text’s design-first organization allows students to master a simple systematic design process, then move to design and analysis of more complex circuits. The use of polarized notation offers students an easy-to-learn notation that clarifies the thought process in design, allows a simplification of the sign process, and improves documentation. Software simulation is stressed in all designed circuits, allowing students to test circuits before committing them to hardware. An early introduction to programmable logic devices reflects their importance in design.”

Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “MANKIND HAS enjoyed a unique relationship with the horse from time immemorial. No other animal has provided such intelligent, loyal service, whether as a worker, conveyance, status symbol or -in today’s times — a leisure occupation. The horse has even generated an entire industry from which many people make their living. The horse has offered humans his strength and loyalty, and in return, we have bestowed upon him a status which is perhaps above that of all other animals.

Differences in terrain, climate and man’s requirements have shaped and developed the wide variety of types and breeds of horse existing today, most of which have been extravagantly portrayed in Spirit of the Horse. Here you will find the tiny Shetland and the massive Shire, the wild horses which — despite modern-day domesticity — can still be found in every continent, the Thoroughbreds and European Warmbloods — scientifically bred for competition — as well as a fascinating variety of native ponies. The unique and much-loved characteristics of all these and more have been faithfully researched by equestrian journalist Nicola Jane Swinney and imaginatively captured by the renowned horse photographer Bob Langrish.”

The Road to Prosperity: An Industrial Policy by Ernest Marples (£19.50)Publisher: Staples Press — 1947Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a triangular tear to the head of the spine, short closed tear to the foot of the same and soiling to the lower panel. Top edge of the text block tanned. Tanning to the blanks and endpapers. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: From the cover: “THE ROAD TO PROSPERITYsays this book, is Industrial Co-partnership, the essential ingredients of which are Joint Consultation, Employee Shareholding and Profit Sharing. There can be no true Co-partnership whenever these three features are not working in effective combination.

The author argues that Co-partnership is the key to production, and therefore to prosperity. He rests this claim on the belief that, though human beings need material incentives to labour, they need also a satisfying spiritual climate in which to perform their labours. This satisfaction cannot be attained unless all concerned, from highest to lowest, feel for their enterprise not only an essential responsibility, but a common pride and pleasure in its success. When all have become partners, sharing the rewards and, within limits, the risks of what they do, a new relationship arises between them and a new sense of their fellowship as men. Thus, in every undertaking, spiritual and material incentives can be made to work in the same direction, and the resulting benefit will accrue not only to man as consumer but to man as man.

The author denies that there is anything Utopian in this, and the body of the book is mainly concerned to show what are the points to be watched in establishing a scheme of Industrial Co-partnership, what dangers must be avoided and what precautions taken. He draws freely on the experience of many concerns which are already operating such schemes successfully, and has reproduced in outline some of the more notable. Nor is he content, like so many, to put his trust in exhortation alone, but, like a practical statesman, suggests a way by which the tax machine can coax both sides of industry into the practice of Co-partnership.

As a politician in a democracy, he seeks also to recommend his ideas politically. They accord, he maintains, with the true philosophy of Conservatism, namely, the spreading of power and property in many independent hands, as against the Socialist philosophy, which is the centralisation of both in the small area of London known genetically as Whitehall.”

From the cover: “This superb work traces the early recruitment of Gorkhas into the East India Company’s Bengal Army and is based on sound research and documentary evidence, a significant par of which has so far been unpublished. The work centres on the friendship of two Highland Scots: David Ochterlony, an army officer with a penchant for diplomacy, and William Fraser, a civil servant with a hankering for military command. Both were involved in the Anglo-Nepal war of 1814- 1816. Ochterlony, commanding an army division in the Cis-Sutlej Hills, employed the skills of Gorkhas and other hillmen captured from the Nepalese Army. Impressed by their military discipline and efficiency, he took the opportunity of his enforced capitulation of the Nepalese Western Army at Malaun in 1815 to enlist some 4700, of whom perhaps 1500 were Gorkhas, into the Bengal Army.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Major General D.

From the flap: “This new volume of stories explores the complex, mysterious relationship between love and its frequent betrayal. Its world is a desperate place and the betrayal of love — or, anyway, of marriage — contributes substantially to this desperation. Marital infidelity is a theme, though not necessarily the main theme, in perhaps a majority of the stories, and its causes are meticulously probed.

From the cover: “Europe is in the grip of the Ice Age. Its harsh but spectacularly beautiful terrain supports many varieties of animal but few people. They are Cro-Magnons — the first anatomically modern people — and Neanderthals, the other race with whom we shared that cold, ancient land.

Ayla is a Cro-Magnon child who lost her parents in an earthquake and was adopted by a tribe of Neanderthal, the Clan. The Clan’s wary suspicion was gradually transformed into acceptance of this girl, so different from them, under the guidance of its medicine woman Iza and its wise holy man Creb. But Broud, the Clan’s future leader, becomes an implacable enemy, and causes her exile Forced into dangerous isolation, she eventually finds her soul mate and fellow Cro-Magnon, Jondalar.

Their epic journey across Europe is complete and Ayla and Jondalar join his people in the region now known as south-west France.

Settling into the rhythm of life in the Ninth Cave, the couple find much pleasure in their baby daughter and in being reunited with friends and family. Ayla plays a vital role in the area of healing: her knowledge of plants and herbs, gleaned from her days with the Clan, strikes awe in her new tribe. They are also both impressed by and wary of her uncanny affinity with long-time companions, the mare Whinney and Wolf.

But, torn between her desire to concentrate on her new child and the rigours of her training as a Zelandoni acolyte, Ayla finds her relationship with Jondalar moving into stormy waters. Can she manage to balance her sense of destiny with her heart?”

Vivien Leigh by Hugo Vickers (£19.00)Publisher: London: Hamish Hamilton — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0241125367]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Vivien Leigh won international acclaim at the age of twenty-six when she crossed the Atlantic and walked off with the coveted part of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind under the noses of some of Hollywood’s most famous stars. For this part alone she has earned a lasting place in film history. She was hardly ever in a bad film or a bad play and she tried a wide range of parts — scoring notable triumphs in A Streetcar Named Desire, as a convincing Lady Macbeth and as Sabina in The Skin of Our Teeth.

There have been many biographies of Vivien Leigh, invariably Hollywood filmographies, most of which have been inaccurate and incomplete. Hugo Vickers approaches his subject as a human being, according her the same detailed research that the readers of his Cecil Beaton and Gladys, Duchess of Marlborough have come to expect of him. He examines the previously uncharted story of Vivien Leigh’s antecedents, making surprising new discoveries. He is able to bring Vivien’s parents to life as real people with the help of a great number of family documents, letters and diaries, made available by Vivien’s daughter for the first time. These give the first clear account of the atmosphere in which Vivien was raised.

He traces the progress of her relationship with Leigh Holman, from their first meeting, through the period of their engagement, marriage and divorce, and shows how they formed an important, lasting friendship, helped by the complete series of letters Vivien wrote to him between 1932 and 1967. He has made extensive use of the Oswald Frewen diaries, an essential source not only on that marriage but on Vivien’s elopement with Laurence Olivier and their subsequent adventures.

Hugo Vickers also examines Vivien’s film and stage career, writing of her as a person and not as the “property” of a film company or a name on a contract. He examines her films and, drawing on a great number of interviews with famous figures of the stage, he recreates her part in the life of English Theatre in the 1940s and 1950s. An important feature of the book is, of course, her love for Laurence Olivier and their twenty-year marriage, so much of it made difficult by recurring bouts of tuberculosis and manic depression. Hugo Vickers, drawing on many hours of conversation with her devoted friend, the actor John Merivale, explains how Vivien re-established her life after the divorce.

Vivien Leigh emerges as a more real and more intelligent person than in previous accounts, a spirited and courageous actress brought down by ill-health.”

In a Summer Season by Elizabeth Taylor (£18.00)Publisher: Chatto & Windus — 1973Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0701119772]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper and onto the margins of the panels. Previous owners' inscription to the pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this edition. [First: 1961]

From the cover: “In A Summer Season is one of Elizabeth Taylor’s most subtle and satisfying novels. The theme is the love which grows between a young man, Dermot and Kate Heron, a wealthy charming widow. Their special relationship is strong enough to withstand pressures and criticism from without but there appears an enemy within which threatens to tear the marriage apart. In a moving and powerful climax Elizabeth Taylor reveals human loving to be the thing it is: tragic and often piercingly funny.

When this novel first appeared, the Sunday Times’ reviewer commented: ‘Elizabeth Taylor’s new novel swings, like the deftest weathercock, between humour, tragedy and ironic observation; most of it is quite exceptionally funny, and bright with the author’s acute susceptibilities… It would be hard to find a novel more consistently accomplished and entertaining’.”

Initial Teacher Training: The Dialogue of Ideology and Culture by Margaret Wilkin (£18.00)Publisher: The Falmer Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0750705558]Condition: Very Good. Description: From the cover: “This book provides a highly readable account of the relationship between successive British governments and the profession of initial teacher training over the past three decades. In the 1970s, the Robbins Report led to the introduction of a curriculum which both structurally and substantively represented the ideology of the day, that of social democracy. More recent government initiatives have recreated training in the image of the market. Currently this relationship is seen as one sided, the government apparently dominating the curriculum through a series of legislative measures.

The author, however, suggests that a long-term view of this relationship may reveal a very different picture: (i) that government intervention has brought professional benefits and that the profession has selectively claimed ownership of ideological interventions; and (ii) that access to the curriculum by the government of the day has been facilitated by the ideological principles of the centre. Thus although the current situation appears to favour the government, the relationship is interactive and beneficial to both sides and it can therefore be regarded as a dialogue..”

Aaron Copland and His World by Edited by Carol J. Oja & Judith Tick (£17.00)Publisher: Princeton & Oxford: Princeton University Press — 2005Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9780691124704]Condition: Very Good. Upper wrapper slighty curled. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Facsimiles; Musical scores;

From the cover: “Aaron Copland and His World reassesses the legacy of one of America’s best-loved composers at a pivotal moment — as his life and work shift from the realm of personal memory to that of history. This collection of seventeen essays by distinguished scholars of American music explores the stages of cultural change on which Copland’s long life (1900-1990) unfolded: from the modernist experiments of the 1920s, through the progressive populism of the Great Depression and the urgencies of World War II, to post-war political backlash and the rise of serialism in the 1950s and the widespread cultural turbulence of the 1960s.

Continually responding to an ever-changing political and cultural panorama, Copland kept a firm focus on both his private muse and the public he served. No self-absorbed recluse, he was very much a public figure who devoted his career to building support systems that would help composers function pro-ductively in America. This book offers multiple critiques on Copland’s role in these shifting contexts.

The contributors include music historians long associated with Copland scholarship such as Vivian Perlis, Howard Pollack, and Larry Starr, as well as newer voices to Copland, among them Elliott Antokoletz, Leon Botstein, and Martin Brody. The book also gives voice to younger scholars: Emily Abrams, Paul Anderson, Elizabeth Crist, Melissa de Graaf, Neil Lerner, and Beth Levy. And it offers interdisciplinary essays by the dance scholar Lynn Garafola, the art historian Gail Levin, and the cultural historian Morris Dickstein.

The topics range from Copland’s role in shaping an American school of modern dance to his relationship with Leonard Bernstein; his homosexuality, especially as influenced by the writings of Andre Gide; and theoretical explorations of cultural nationalism. Copland’s rich correspondence with the composer and critic Arthur Berger, who set the parameters of Copland’s reception for much of the composer’s lifetime, is published here in its entirety, edited by Wayne Shirley.”

J. B. Fischer Von Erlach by Hans Aurenhammer (£17.00)Publisher: Cambridge: Harvard University Press — 1973Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0674469887]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Previous owners' name to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Chronological tables [1]; Black & white plates;

From the cover: “Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach was one of the greatest Baroque architects. His spectacularly dramatic buildings are familiar to all who have visited Vienna and Salzburg, for he was the virtual creator of the Austrian Baroque style. In them may be seen reflected the rise of the Habsburg Empire to the status of a European power, that sudden, delayed efflorescence during the period of peace and prosperity which followed the defeat of the Turks in 1683. The style was internationally based. Fischer was trained in Rome, travelled in northern Europe and England, and was familiar with contemporary architectural developments in France.

In this book — the fullest study of his work yet published in English — Dr Hans Aurenhammer sets Fischer in the context of his time, artistically, socially and philosophically. He takes into account not only the surviving buildings but also the temporary structures designed for festivals, his idealistic and often fantastic architectural projects, and his influential publication on the architecture of the world. He examines the symbolical meanings of decorative elements in Fischer’s palaces and churches and shows how they express the desire of the Emperor and his court to create a new Rome on the Danube. He investigates the possible relationship between the work of Fischer and the philosophical writings of Leibniz. But above all, and as a result of studying Fischer’s artistic debts and sources, he reveals this great architect’s true originality — his inexhaustible inventiveness and his mastery of mass and space. The book includes a full list of Fischer’s works, including his drawings.”

The Seven Keys to Colour Healing: A Complete Outline of the Practice by Roland Hunt (£17.00)Publisher: The C. W. Daniel Company — 1958Binding: Hardback First Edition. Condition: Very Good. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding, slightly faded appearance. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned and with some underlining to the contents list.Description: From the introduction: ‘The manuscript of this book comes into my hands at a time when gallant England is crucially involved in a fight for life, and indeed, civilization as we know it, when so much chaos and destruction have been loosed upon the world by the forces of darkness. In these circumstances, and with all the attendant difficulties conspiring to upset the normal rhythm in writing and publishing, it is remarkable and utterly praiseworthy that such a splendid constructive healing effort, carrying the torch of Light and Colour, should be put forward to relieve and raise stricken humanity. I therefore extend to Mr. Hunt and his publishers my admiration for their courage and resourcefulness in presenting this timely and urgently needed work to ‘fill the breach’ for ‘Using Colour.’ I can but add — ‘that which is done in times of stress is doubly done!’ Colour-breathing, mentioned for the first time in this book as an integral part of the prescribed Colour-treatments, is in fact the greatest of all advanced methods and is destined to restore the coming New Race to its God-given physical perfection.” Er, right… no, I have no idea either…Notes: Foreword or introduction by Ivah B.

John Major the Autobiography by John Major (£16.50)Publisher: London: HarperCollinsPublishers — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002570041]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “John Major’s autobiography is one of the most personal and revealing ever written by a former British Prime Minister. Eagerly awaited, the account of his childhood, rise and fall is scrupulous and unsparing.

Major’s early life was extraordinary; his rise through Parliament meteoric. Soon a favourite of Margaret Thatcher, he became Foreign Secretary and then Chancellor of the Exchequer. When Thatcher fell, he fought and won a shrewd campaign to succeed her.

With the difficulties of the Gulf War and the Maastricht Treaty behind him, and the Poll Tax abolished, John Major went on to win a remarkable victory in the general election of 1992. He brought down inflation and ushered in a solid economic recovery. He made the most decisive steps for a generation towards peace in Northern Ireland. Yet within months of the 1992 election his government was in troubled waters. John Major is candid about his fight to keep sterling in the Exchange Rate Mechanism and for the first time makes public his reactions to defeat on ‘Black Wednesday’. He is frank about the civil war that emerged within his own party over Britain’s relationship with the European Union. He is honest about what he won and what he lost, and about friends and foes within his party as well as outside.

In his leadership of his party and his country and in facing up to the new order after May 1997 John Major acted with a dignity rare in politics. The Tories’ continuing internal struggles since their defeat serve only to intensify interest in his leadership through the Conservative Party’s last period of power this century.”

The Oxford Illustrated History of Britain by Edited by Kenneth O. Morgan (£16.50)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 1986Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0192851748]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Single reading crease to the spine. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly age-tanned at the margins.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “This beautifully illustrated volume tells the story of Britain and her peoples over two thousand years, from the coming of the Roman legions to the present day. The dramatic narrative of developments throughout the British Isles is taken up in turn by. ten leading historians, who offer the fruits of the best modern scholarship to the general reader in an authoritative and attractive form.

From the authors’ exploration of the relationship between the political, economic, social, and cultural transformations in British history there emerges a vivid and sometimes surprising picture of a continuous turmoil of change in every period. But consensus, no less than conflict, is a part of the story: the authors emphasize the elements of continuity in British cultural and social ideals, bringing out that special awareness of nationality and patriotism which has been such a distinctive feature of British society.

By relating both these strands in the British experience, and by exploring the many ways in which Britain has shaped and been shaped by contact with Europe and the wider world, this comprehensive work brings the reader face to face with the past, and the foundations of modern British society.

The book includes over two hundred and fifty illustrations, of which twenty-four are colour plates, all specially chosen to illuminate the text. For easy reference the book also contains a consolidated chronology of events, genealogies of monarchs, and a table of prime ministers. An annotated guide to further reading is provided at the end of the volume.”

Many business books look at new companies and how they have become successful. This book bases itself in the reality in which most business people find themselves daily — working in companies which have been established for some time and which are faced with legacy people, legacy processes, legacy systems, legacy channels and an existing culture.

Some minor wear at edges of DJ. Corners gently bumped.Description: As The Phenomenon of Man considered man in his natural context, its author here considers him in his supernatural context. Though as he maintained in the earlier volume, man is a phenomenon like countless others in the evolutionary series, he is not only that: he is also unique in it in that he can reflect upon it and thereby not only to an extent control it but recognise it to be part of a larger, non-material process. By transcending the purely experimental, he was able to arrive at the concept of cause and direction - in other words of a purposeful creator, of God. It is in this relationship that the author places him in the present volume.Tags: Spiritual, testimony, philosophy

[ISBN: 9780224071260]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ.Description: Illustrated with B&W photographs. Based on a decade of research, and on interviews with many of Mao's close circle in China who have never talked before - and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him this is the most authoritative life of Mao ever written. It is full of startling revelations, exploding the myth of the Long March, and showing a completely unknown Mao: he was not driven by idealism or ideology; his intimate and intricate relationship with Stalin went back to the 1920s, ultimately bringing him to power; he welcomed Japanese occupation of much of China; and he schemed, poisoned and blackmailed to get his way. After Mao conquered China in 1949, his secret goal was to dominate the world. In chasing this dream he caused the deaths of 38 million people in the greatest famine in history. In all, well over 70 million Chinese perished under Mao's rule - in peacetime.Notes: Size: 9½" x 6". 814 pages. Tags: mao china communism shanghai

The Ordeal of Power: A Political Memoir of the Eisenhower Years by Emmet John Hughes (£15.50)Publisher: MacMillan & Co. — 1963Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little light soiling to both panels. Price Clipped. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First British Edition. [First Published: U.S.A., Same Year] From the cover: “This thoughtful and penetrating study of what constitutes the executive role in the American hierarchy of political power is approached through an analysis of the Eisenhower years. Emmet John Hughes was close to Eisenhower, first as a speechwriter for his initial political campaign, then in the same capacity throughout the first term of office, and finally as special consultant in what the author sees as the tragic second term. This book has been written with access to primary source material, cabinet records, texts of letters and speeches, and memoranda throughout the years.

The picture of Eisenhower is built up by an analysis of the varied men who surrounded him and his relationship to them, and by a reconstruction of the episodes and crises at home and abroad that beset him during his terms of office. Much light is thrown upon the principal actors — Nixon, McCarthy, Adams, Humphrey and especially Dulles — in the drama of Suez, Little Rock, The Geneva Conferences, the Sputnik and the U-2 incident. Eisenhower himself emerges at one and the same time as both a greater man and a lesser executive leader than either his supporters or his opponents supposed.

Emmet John Hughes has written a fascinating political document which reveals the ordeal imposed on any man who is elected to the Presidency of the United Slates.”

Benson and Hedges Cricket Year Fourteenth Edition September 1994 to September 1995 by David Lemmon (£14.50)Publisher: Headline — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747214719]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “This fourteenth edition of the Benson and Hedges Cricket Year has been revamped to make it even more compulsive and essential reading than ever before. There are controversial and outspoken articles from Alan Lee of The Times on England’s Ashes tour, from Derek Pringle on the future for English cricket, and from Frank Hayes on the relationship between the captain and selectors.

The section on England has been greatly enlarged and is now presented by competition rather than chronologically to make it easier to follow how each tournament has progressed. Pride of place in the domestic season goes to the visiting West Indies, whose six-Test tour drew capacity crowds. The form charts for each first-class side are a popular feature of the book, while the limited-overs statistics are given in an easily accessible manner. And all the major issues of the season are discussed.

Full coverage of first-class cricket throughout the world is maintained, and, as in previous years, scorecards and reports on all Test matches and limited-overs internationals played around the world in the past twelve months are given. But it has been a dramatic period for world cricket, with allegations 6f match-fixing and bribery throwing the sport — and Pakistani cricket in particular — into turmoil. While the Australians continued their revival, beating both England and West Indies in quick succession — the first side to win in the Caribbean since 1972-3 — to lay claim to being the best side in the world.

Graham Gooch, who retired from international cricket during the year has written a lively foreword that will provoke much debate and comment. While the World XI, selected by the editor on the basis of performances over the year, always includes some controversial choices. A new feature provides a statistical answer as to who have been the leading nations in Test cricket and limited-overs internationals in the past twelve months.

Unique in style and content, Benson and Hedges Cricket Year is available within six weeks of the end of the English season and is the first book to detail all the major events of the year. Its combination of uninhibited comment, lavish photography and comprehensive statistics from around the world makes it an essential autumn purchase for all cricket fans.”

Just As I Am - the Autobiography of Billy Graham by Billy Graham (£14.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0551031166]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Pages lightly age-tanned, more heavily at the margins. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Billy Graham has touched the hearts and souls of millions with his message of faith. Now, for the first time ever, Dr. Graham tells his life story in a momentous work of insight. Hailed as the world’s preacher, his calling as an Evangelist has taken him to every nation, from Europe to Asia, from major capitals to the most remote outposts. His Crusades have spanned fifty years, and he has been part of history in the making and friend to every president since Eisenhower. A pioneer in social issues (he refused to preach to segregated audiences in the South), he has led by his extraordinary example of integrity.

In Just As I Am, Billy Graham looks back at it all with down-to-earth warmth and candour — remembering his dairy farm upbringing, his early preaching experiences, and the overwhelming international response to his public ministry based on his unshakable belief in Christ.

Billy Graham Crusades have reached more than 200 million people in person, and millions more have heard him on radio, television, and film. He has been welcomed behind the Iron Curtain, into China and North Korea, and on every continent. And, at a time when many public figures seem scandal-prone, Dr. Graham maintains an unimpeachable reputation and powerful presence by managing his organization scrupulously, limiting his personal earnings, and urging cooperation rather than competition among all religious people.

Just As I Am reveals Billy Graham to be as forthright and engaging as ever as he reflects with plainspoken immediacy on his private life. As he shares his own spiritual journey, he writes movingly of his everyday joys and struggles, and of his profound commitment to his wife, Ruth, and their family.

Discussing his relationship with heads of state as diverse as Queen Elizabeth II, the Shah of Iran, and Kim II Sung, Dr. Graham also shares such memorable encounters as his plane trip with civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , when an engine caught fire, and his tragic unsuccessful attempt to warn President John F. Kennedy, Jr. , about the danger of his trip to Dallas.

Dr. Graham details his friendships with nine U. S. presidents, beginning with Eisenhower and including Johnson and Nixon and continuing to this day with Bill Clinton. As Dr. Graham points out, When a president of the United States, for example, wept in my presence, or knelt with me to pray, or privately unburdened his concerns about his family, I was not thinking about his political philosophy or his personality but about his need for God’s help.

This is an inspiring story of how a man of God grew into a man of great influence. Examining his life and ministry from the wise and humble perspective that has made him one of the world’s most beloved and respected leaders, Billy Graham’s Just As I Am is an unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere.”

The National Wealth: Who Gets What in Britain by Dominic Hobson (£14.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0002559137]Condition: Very Good. Edges of the text block lightly soiled and tanned otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “This is the most comprehensive, lucid and authoritative account of the state of the nation since Anthony Sampson’s classic Anatomy of Britain. Starting with a simple question — ‘who owns Britain?’ — Dominic Hobson has created a colossal tour de force: a book which not only ranges across every aspect of wealth and income in Britain today, but also explores the relationship between money, power and status from the Norman Conquest to New Labour. Huge in scope, masterly in presentation, The National Wealth reveals the social, economic and financial (rather than the political or bureaucratic) workings of Britain. It tells us who has the money, and how they get it; and, ultimately, who owns Britain today. The author describes the draining away of money and power from the great estates of the realm such as the Crown, the Aristocracy, the Church and Oxbridge; the aggrandisement of the State in the post-war socialist era, followed by the greatest transfer of ownership in Britain since the Dissolution of the Monasteries — the privatisation of the nationalised industries; the origins of the greatest personal fortunes and the psychology of the truly rich; the rise of the industrial Fat Cats and the new professional elites of the City and the Law. The book concludes with a probing analysis of the relationship between the PLC (the dominant form of social organisation in Britain today) and the great institutional investors who have become the most influential repositories of the national wealth. Throughout, the narrative concentrates on people as well as organisations: on people as voters, taxpayers, patients, students and parents as well as people at play and at work — MPs, civil servants, judges, dons, clergymen, farmers, lawyers, bankers, accountants, architects, doctors and dentists, teachers, army officers, managers, journalists, shopkeepers, publicans, sportsmen, charity-workers and pensioners. The National Wealth is a magnificent summation of Britain at the turn of the century, a panoramic and trenchantly expressed overview of the division of the spoils, and a searching examination of the gap between rhetoric and reality in public and private affairs.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 1350 pages.

The People's Peace: British History 1945-1989 by Kenneth O. Morgan (£14.50)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0198227647]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Front flap is creased at the fold. Top edge of the text block lightly spotted. Half-title page is lightly marked and a light crease runs the corner of the first few leaves. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “The People’s Peace is the first comprehensive study by a professional historian of British history from 1945 to the present day. It examines the transformation of post-war Britain from the planning enthusiasm of 1945 to the ethic of Thatcherism. Its themes include the troubles of the British economy; public criticism of the legitimacy of the state and its instruments of authority; the coexistence of growing personal prosperity with widespread social inequality; and the debates aroused by the process of decolonization, and by Britain’s relationship to the Commonwealth, the transatlantic world and Europe. Changes in cultural life, from the puritanical ‘austerity’ of the 1940s, through the ‘permissiveness’ of the 1960s, to the tensions of recent years, are also charted. Kenneth Morgan examines the paradoxes of life in the modern United Kingdom: the growing affluence and internal peace of mainland Britain, with its underside of disillusion and discontent.

Using a wide variety of sources, including the records of political parties and the most recently released documents from the Public Record Office, Kenneth Morgan brings the story right up to date and draws comparisons with the post-war history of other nations. This penetrating analysis by a leading twentieth-century historian will prove invaluable to anyone interested in the development of the Britain of today.”

[ISBN: 0787974137]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Front flap has a light vertical crease otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “Why A Book About Wizards And Warriors as models for leadership? Because, as Peter Drucker once said, everything you learned is wrong — at best, it is misleading and insufficient. You typically learn in school, workshops, and seminars that if you can manage the work and serve the people, you have what it takes. It's not true. Maybe you have enough stuff to be a pretty good manager, but it takes a lot more to be a good leader. The Wizard and the Warrior gives leaders the insight and courage they need to take risks on behalf of values they cherish and the people they guide. Great leaders must act both as wizard, calling on imagination, creativity, meaning, and magic, and as warrior, mobilizing strength, courage, and willingness to fight as necessary to fulfil their mission.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

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.
