A spin-off from the damming of rivers to generate power should be increased fish production in the new reservoir habitat thus created. But the native fish fauna of Southeast Asia is predominantly riverine, with few species adapted to living in still, open water. In contrast, Africa has many such species and long established experience of lake fisheries. This book brings together a wide spectrum of scattered and previously unpublished information which will be invaluable to the interchange of information on the management of tropical freshwater fisheries in both continents.432pp.N.B.TWO SMALL CLOSED TEARS TO TOP EDGE FRONT D/J.

When Charles Davenport published Heredity in Relation to Eugenics in 1911, he advanced his ideas of where genetics would go in the rest of the 20th century. In this volume, a group of prominent scientists take some of Davenport's themes-mental illness, human evolution, nature and nurture-and discuss them in a 21st century context. Davenport's original book is reprinted along with the essays. Contents: Complete facsimile reprint of Heredity in Relation to Eugenics by Charles Davenport; Additional Essays: Preface (Matt Ridley); Davenport Biography (Jan Witkowski); Davenport' s Eugenics (Elof Carlson); Human Variation/Evolution/Founder Effects (Douglas Wallace); Psychiatric Disorders (Daniel Weinberger and David Goldman); Behavioral Disorders (Lindsey Kent and Simon Baron Cohen); Using Genetics (Philip Reilly); Insights from the Human Genome: Genes and Variation (Maynard Olson); Genetics and Equality (Ronald Dworkin); Genetics and Human Nature (Lewis Wolpert).298pp.

Editors Crossfield,Anne and Heemann,Manfred
As the transnational character of banking and finance activities becomes ever more pronounced, there is a clear need for lawyers in the field to become conversant with pertinent legal developments in national jurisdictions other than their own. This book takes a major step towards fulfilling that need. It not only provides essential orientation in the banking law of nine countries in which international financial business is commonly transacted, but also offers experienced, high-quality insights into developments and trends in each of these jurisdictions. With origins in the discussions of the Banking and Finance Commission of the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), this work examines the main areas of banking and finance law across a broad spectrum of areas of law from project finance to financial services regulation. Most of the chapters were originally presented as papers at a conference on "Managing Banking Risks and Combating Fraud" which was jointly organised by IBC and AIJA in London in March 1998. These papers have been updated for inclusion in this work, with the addition of a General Report and a new paper on the United States which takes into account the new Financial Services and Modernization Act (FSMA). Each chapter follows a predetermined outline, so the reader can easily make a comparative analysis across the countries covered. 270pp.

Edited By Elliott, John
Teacher education and training in the UK is under attack from the New Right and government policy-makers have been sufficiently influenced by its ideas to threaten the very existence of higher education-based teacher training. The attack has been very much directed toward theory-based training which is accused of promoting progressive theories that are politically biased in favour of left-wing egalitarian ideology. The over all effect, it is argued, is a failure to raise standards. The New Right, aided and abetted by the tabloid press, wants to see the removal of teacher training from higher education, and for it to be unambiguously located in the schools, where it can be linked to the "theory-free" development of practical skills. Elliott and his contributors do not offer a defence of current practice, but do provide a rationale for the continuing role for higher education while at the same time moving toward a more experimentally-based professional preparation. They articulate in some detail that the practice of teaching is neither a matter of applying ideas derived from theory rather than experience, nor simply a matter of applying instrumental technical skills, learned on-the-job, to produce standardized and measurable end-products. Teaching is best viewed as a practical science in which the relationship between theory and practice is interactive. Practical skills are not simply technical in character, but structured by values and understandings of how to act consistently with them.Previous owner's signature on ffep.265pp.
