Best, Henry B. M.
Although Charles Best is known for discovering insulin, the story of his life neither begins nor ends with that one moment. Not only did he make many other discoveries, he was also one half of an extraordinary couple who, during their almost sixty years together, were involved in many of the significant events of the twentieth century. Margaret & Charley is the story of these two people from their beginnings on the east coast at the turn of the century through the years that followed. Through diaries, scrapbooks, photograph albums, and other documentation, the details of their lives are shared with the reader. 542pp. N.B. Some damage to rear board, bumped and a little warped. Staining and slight creasing to rear D/J.

Editors Heath,Christopher and Liu,Kung-Chung
Despite the harmonizing effect of TRIPS and intellectual property law in general, technology transfer remains firmly rooted in domestic contract law and public policy. However, similarities in legal culture across many national borders keep this problem to a minimum endash until we approach the technologically advanced countries of East Asia. For practitioners worldwide working with technology transfer in this culturally heterogeneous part of the world, Legal Rules of Technology Transfer in Asia is a godsend. For each of nine significant technology market jurisdictions--the PRC, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia--this nuts-and-bolts approach to the applicable national rules provides all necessary legal information and guidance. Country chapters by local authorities are structured to cover the following essential factors: + government policy on technological research and transfer; + intellectual property system; + licensing agreements; + registration and notification; + dispute resolution; + tax considerations; + transfer of patents; + choice of law questions; + franchising; + publicity and merchandising; + anti-trust rules. and many other in Two introductory chapters provide a much-needed perspective on technology transfer in the context of the world trade regime as it especially affects East Asia, with an emphasis on the trend to clarify and strengthen anti-trust rules. A concluding chapter surveys the market anthropology of the region and offers an expert assessment of the probable future development of technology transfer trade in the region. With its first-hand, in-depth, country-by-country analysis, and its firm grasp on a diversity of relevant legal and cultural issues, Legal Rules of Technology Transfer in Asia is unexcelled for desktop use in offices handling East Asian trade in technology products. 278pp.

Kennedy, Roger G.
"Historic Homes of Minnesota" is the engaging story of the evolution of architectural styles in Minnesota from 1830 to 1914 - from the influence of the early French traders along the Mississippi and St Croix to the emergence of the school of Frank Lloyd Wright. Through photographs and colourfully informative text, internationally known historian Roger Kennedy helps readers understand the unique styles of Minnesota's first homes, including the Mower House in Arcola, the first large house on the St. Croix; Alexander Ramsey's 'Mansion House' in St Paul, influenced by Pennsylvania Dutch virtues; the whimsical Charles C. Clement house in Fergus Falls, clearly Norse in spirit; and the Purcell House in Minneapolis, a fine example of the Prairie School design. On a broad plane, these architectural eras reflected social customs, politics, commerce, religion, and literature. On a personal level, they often revealed the national origin and character of the families that made the house a home. In short, this is in large measure a history of the people. Kennedy has considered their heritage and traditions as carefully as he has examined the architecture they created, and he offers a fresh, holistic approach to the study of our state's great houses.239pp.

Rudolph, Susanne Hoeber; Rudolph, Lloyd I.; Kanota, Mohan Singh
An engrossing narrative of a colonial subjects life contemplating his Imperial masters at the height of colonialism in India; based upon the first eight years of his life-long diary. Amar Singh, a Rajput nobleman and officer in the Indian Army, kept a diary for 44 years from 1898, when he was twenty, until his death in 1942. In it he writes about the Jodhpur court, the Imperial Cadet Corps, and the British Expeditionary Force in China during the Boxer rebellion. A century before hybridity, he constructs a hybrid self, an Edwardian officer cum gentleman and a martial Rajput cum manor lord. With the diary acting as alter ego and best friend, Amar Singh resists becoming a coolie for the raj when he finds the British to be racist masters as well as friends. He writes and reads extensively to keep himself amused, he says, and to avoid the boredom of princedom and raj philistinism. Here the authors focus on the first eight years of Amar Singhs diary (1898-1905), offering a rare and intimate glimpse into British colonialism from the point of view of a colonial subject. Illustrated with fifty photographs and facsimiles from Amar Singhs readings.633pp.
