Tomasevski, Katerina
This volume maps out the response of states to human rights violations over the period 1946-1999 and offers a complete record for this period. Its starting point is that such responses are not established and accepted state practice. Traditional, if unwritten, norms of states' behaviour developed through centuries of silence and inaction; the prevalent reaction to human rights violations by another state remains the absence of any response. Furthermore, this book probes into evidence of active and passive complicity by reviewing aid to countries in which violations have been taking place and diplomatic initiatives undertaken to shield violators from public opprobrium. Since international law is generated through state practice, the book highlights the ongoing tussle between the pre-1946 heritage of silence and inaction and the 1946-1999 haphazard pattern of responses to violations. 420pp.

Martin, F. Lester
This book is unique as it presents a concise history of Great Britain as an island kingdom from the reigns of William I in 1066 to that of Queen Elizabeth II in the present century. The preface contains an overview of the hereditary composition of the monarchy, the coronation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, and a listing of the monarchs from 1066 to the present. The introduction contains, a brief history of the four countries - England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - and how they came to be united as the Kingdom of Great Britain. The monarchy is divided into ten houses, or dynasties. A two-fold page layout describes each dynasty from the Normans to the Windsors. Each layout contains: a listing of individual monarchs and dates of reigns; depiction of coins with monarch images; listing of historical events occurring in each reign with marriage information; and two-colour sketches with narrative description of architectural buildings of the period. Thus, there is a 1000 year history of the evolution of architecture from defensive to domestic usage. Signed by author on title page. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped.

Edited By Brizga, Sandra and Finlayson, Brian
Only in Australasia can the effect of technological societies on river systems be truly analysed and this unique, accessible book covers key issues in river management from a geomorphological perspective. Australia and New Zealand were colonised only 200 years ago by central bureaucratic administrations. For the whole period of European settlement most river management activities have been carried out by government agencies and the record of their activities is relatively complete. These countries therefore provide good case studies for the impact of technological societies on river systems, having transformed their rivers in a short time from their 'natural' into a heavily managed condition. Geomorphology provides the scientific basis for much of our understanding of river behaviour and geomorphologists are now actively involved in the management process. This book provides a collection of case studies, the first to be produced to date, which describe the management of rivers covering issues of environmental flow, stream condition, mining and extractive activities, river channel change, river stabilisation, river regulation and urban streams. The book will prove invaluable to geomorphologists, river engineers, stream ecologists, river managers, and environmental impact assessors involved in river management and restoration.301pp.
