Editor Blanpain,R.
Globalization is unravelling and reassembling the fabric of labour relations in ways that are more affected by local conditions and business requirements than by international standards. Drawing together a group of concerned delegates, a special International Conference in Leuven, Belgium, on 2-3 May 1999, was sponsored by the Euro-Japan Institute for Law and Business. The participants included prominent members of the international legal, business and academic communities, as well as representatives of the International Labour Organisation, the Organisation for Economic Development and Co-operation (including its Trade Union Advisory Committee), the European Union, and the International Employers' Association. This book is the record of this conference. It publishes the reports presented by the various delegates, and also includes the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (1998) and its follow-up. As an additional feature, it publishes codes of conduct for several multinational enterprises. The text investigates four channels that are available for monitoring social change and promoting social progress in today's world: labour conventions legally binding on signatory states, international guidelines and statements of social policy imposing voluntary standards on multinational enterprises, international declarations of rights recommending agendas for legislatures, and internal corporate codes of conduct. The reports evaluate the effectiveness of these channels, how they operate in practice, their impact on day-to-day reality, and the extent of coherence and consistency they manifest as instruments of social change. 386pp.

Turnbull, Michael T.R.B.
This is a local search for God in the holy places of Edinburgh and Lothians. The first section deals with the past, touring the stones, statues, spires, churches and ancient monuments which crowd the city and its surrounds. It is an appreciation of the people whose collective efforts over the centuries have moulded the spiritual heritage of the Lothians today - the women and men of faith, the city fathers, the architects and the artists, the saints and even the sinners. The second part of the book looks at the present and the future.170pp.

Larsen, Robin; Larsen, Stephen

Their discussions with each other and interviews with five successful couples take readers deep into man-woman psychology and spirituality.

Cheesman, Clive and Williams, Jonathan
Slight crease on back cover.Throughout history, individuals have pictured themselves becoming emperor, king, queen or president. Some have proved successful, others not, while some were pure fantasists. Many produced coins, banknotes, stamps and heraldic devices as proof of the status they claimed. In exploring the issues surrounding political legitimacy, this volume brings together evidence for an amazing variety of would-be sovereigns and phantom countries, rebel states and royal imposters, ranging from ancient to modern times and from the Orient to the New World. The extraordinary personalities, their individual stories and the images they employed are interesting in themselves, but set in a wider context they also demonstrate the changing tradition of pretence and rebellion. The authors examine fundamental concepts of loyalty and group identity in a commentary on the nature of legitimate power and established sovereignty. Their analysis reveals the convenient fictions, collective myths and pseudo-histories inherent even today in the construction and maintenance of a dynasty or modern nation. 192pp.

Abu-Amr, Ziad
As the Palestinian Liberation Organization engages in negotiations with Israel toward an interim period of limited Palestinian self-rule, this timely book provides an insider's view of how the growing hold of Islamic fundamentalism in the West Bank and Gaza challenges the peace process. Working from interviews with leaders of the movement and from primary documents, Ziad Abu-Amr traces the origin and evolution of the fundamentalist organizations Muslim Brotherhood (Hamas) and Islamic Jihad and analyzes their ideologies, their political programs, their sources of support, and their impact on Palestinian society. With a solid grasp of the dynamics of these movements, Abu-Amr charts the struggle between the fundamentalists and the PLO to define the identity of Palestinian society, its direction, and its leadership. 169pp. N.B.
