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.

Pieters,D
The one-job wage earner, for so many generations a bulwark of industrialized society, has all but passed away. We perceive this as contemporary reality, yet it has not been easy to cite the facts and figures necessary to build a stable foundation for the social security of tomorrow's population. Now the European Institute of Social Security, a leading multidisciplinary research group dedicated to exploring the frontiers of social security, has taken the crucial first steps with an in-depth examination of the new and atypical work relations that are emerging. The research and conclusions in this book should help policymakers to identify the areas in which existing social security systems can meaningfully accommodate the new realities of work. The volume records the proceedings of the 1999 Conference of the EISS, held at Limassol in Cyprus, to consider the relations of atypical work patterns and social protection. Among the important issues raised are: the real extent of the atypical work phenomenon; difficulties relating to the assessment of the incomes of the self-employed; social protection of farmers in Europe; and the shortcomings of existing social security systems vis-a-vis self-employment and part-time work. The analysis of trends presented in this book should be useful and informative for anyone - whether in government, business or academia - concerned with the development and future of social protection systems, not only in Europe but throughout the world. 171pp.

Gullberg, Anders and Isaksson, Karolina
Traffic congestion in big cities is a growing problem, and in the Swedish capital of Stockholm a seven-month long trial period with congestion taxes was carried out in 2006. It has since been made a permanent system. In this book, the authors scrutinise and analyse the political and administrative processes of the first Swedish congestion experiment and its aftermath. The articles point to the fact that traffic policies are implemented for varying purposes, and differing interests can be premiered when designing congestion systems. The authors' analyses are mirrored against collective, international experiences and research. The authors describe the preoccupations, hopes and impressions that came along with the trial period, and how feelings fluctuated among the inhabitants of Stockholm before, during, and after the trial. The book shows how research can and should follow the general trends in societal developments closely. Flexibility is especially important in order to explain problems, and preventing gossip and preconceived ideas from gaining a foothold. The authors hope to provide tools for avoiding the pitfalls, and that the successes of the Stockholm Trial will be repeated in other contexts. 314pp.

Maas, Marnix C.
Molecular imaging techniques enable the visualization of biological processes in living organisms. These techniques rely on synthetic biomolecules ('tracers') that specifically target a physiological process of interest without significantly disturbing it, and that poses some property which allows them to be detected externally. If the detectable property is radioactivity, the molecules are referred to as radiotracers, and the imaging technique is referred to as nuclear imaging. The aims of the research presented in this work are to determine the spatial resolution experimentally, the energy resolution and time resolution attainable with monolithic scintillator detectors, to analyze the dependence of these detector properties on physical quantities such as the scintillator light yield, the APD gain and the noise characteristics of the front-end electronics, and to predict the performance of a small animal PET system based on these detectors. The research presented in this publication is primarily based on experimental work on prototype detector modules. Simulation studies have been carried out in parallel; these are presented elsewhere. Some of the results of these simulation studies are also used in this work. 168pp. N.B. Small crease to bottom corner of rear cover.
