Previous owner's signature on ffep.These essays investigate the links between agency and race with regard to constructions of masculinity and femininity among radical groups resisting varied forms of political and economic domination.Building on the work of anthropologists, historians, sociologists, literary critics, and feminist philosophers of science, the essays in Women Out of Place: the Gender of Agency and Race of Nationality investigate the links between agency and race for what they reveal about constructions of masculinity and femininity and patterns of domesticity among groups seeking to resist varied forms of political and economic domination through a subnational ideology of racial and cultural redemption.280pp.

Benito, E.; Giacosa, A.
This book evaluates new data on diet and cancer and uses it to update the dietary guidelines produces by ECP and IUNS in 1985. It is the proceedings of the 9th Annual Symposium of the European Organization for Cooperation in Cancer Prevention Studies held in Madrid during October, 1991. The first section updates general background material (dietary carcinogens, animal studies), the second section concerns diet and cancer at specific sites and also specific nutrients in human cancer. The third section addresses problems with guidelines per se and the fourth the Mediterranean diet in relation to cancer. These chapters, together with the general conclusions reached in a parallel workshop, represent a review of the current status of diet and cancer and also provides the background to the conclusions that guidelines as formulated in 1985 can no longer be sustained and that they need to be replaced by guidelines that concern food groups instread of nutrients and are targetted at particular groups rather than at the population in general. N.B.Slight fading to spine,slightly marked at base of spine.198pp.

Cook, Judith
This biography tells the story of a woman who lived totally outside the conventions of her time, Mary Bryant, a Cornish fisherman's daughter turned highway robber. Sentenced to hang in 1786, she was instead transported to Australia, from where she made a daring escape, only to be recaptured and brought back to London chained to the ship's deck in an open cage. Imprisoned in Newgate, and again threatened with death, her cause was championed by James Boswell, who was so taken by her that he defended her at her trial, winning her first a reprieve and then a full pardon. May Bryant's life reads like romantic fiction, yet this quietly spoken woman from a respectable home, who was not considered conventionally attractive, lived more dangerously than any fictitious heroine. Judith Cook has pieced together her life from various sources, including Boswell's diaries and archive material in Australia, Holland and the United States.256pp.

Edited By WTO Secretariat
This work brings together the background papers on major service sectors prepared by the WTO Secretariat for the WTO's Council for Trade in Services, in preparation for the new round of negotiations which started in January 2000. Following an analysis of the economic effects of services liberalization, 19 chapters on individual service sectors consider the issues which WTO Members need to consider when framing their negotiating positions and objectives for the new round and preparing their industries for a more open trading environment: the economic importance of the sector; the manner in which it is regulated and traded; problems of definition and classification; and the pattern of commitments undertaken by Member governments under the GATS. Many of the papers also identify prevalent forms of trade restriction or discrimination and suggest areas for further work. In addition, the work includes a detailed description of the structure of services commitments as submitted by WTO Members with respect to the four modes of supply which constitute the definition of trade in services under the GATS. The contributions have been provided by experts of the Trade in Services Division of the WTO Secretariat, with responsibility for the services or subjects in question. 704pp.
