Tunney, Sean
Labour sought to develop policies regulating newspaper ownership and the role of journalists. It endeavoured to both correct what it perceived as press bias against the Labour Party and to address the broader issues of political and cultural diversity. "Labour's & the Press, 1972-2005" provides a lucid analysis of how Labour's policies on the press sit within the context of the party's overall development - from Harold Wilson, through the party's flirtation with Robert Maxwell, to the robust approach of Tony Blair. It offers a fresh insight into New Labour's concern with press management and political communications. The author demonstrates how tensions of the past shed new light on Labour Party practices of the present. 212pp.

Blau, Joseph L.
History's first national party with roots in a mass electorate, the Jacksonian Democrats were not so much unified around a shared policy program as they were a patchwork of conflicting interests. They came together most vigorously in the name of what they opposed: the emerging financial and commercial monopolies, the old Washington dynasty, and any whiff of privilege or aristocracy. Yet they demonstrated how even unprincipled national parties could invigorate representative democracy and repair the growing rifts between Northern industrialists, the Old South, and the developing West. These texts show the Jacksonian movement as a cross-section of nineteenth century America. A picture of popular democracy in its infancy, they together form a study of unity in diversity. 383pp. N.B. Light scratch to rear cover.

Bergmann, Gustav; Edited By Tegtmeier,
The large majority of the papers in the present volume were collected by Bergmann under the title "Logic and Reality" which indicates the theme of an ontological foundation for logic or of an ontological analysis of analyticity. Actually, the theme is to be found in almost all of the papers of this volume. When Quine published his attack on the analytic-synthetic distinction, Bergmann defended it vehemently. In contrast to Carnap whom Quine criticised Bergmann takes "analytic" in the narrow sense of "logical truth". However, he later extended the area of the analytic a by including truths (falsehoods) expressing the intentional connection between mental states and the facts they purportedly intend. As can be gathered from Selected Papers I Bergmann is a dualist and became more and more interested in intentionality. Another element of the world's form usually not recognised and discovered by Bergmann is the exemplification tie or exemplification nexus which connects individuals and relational and non-relational universals. Intentionality and exemplification are brought together by Bergmann with logical conjunction and disjunction which he considers as connections in reality and not mere symbols. Moreover, Bergmann offers ontological assays of negation and quantification, of variables and their order. Bergmann holds that the recognition of the logical and categorial form of the world including the intentional connection is crucial to arrive at a tenable epistemological realism. 371pp.
