Ownes, Ron
This book addresses the historical, social and political contexts within which Solon of Athens instituted wide-ranging reforms to the Athenian constitution (594-93 BCE), the impact of those reforms on the growing political self-awareness of the archaic Athenians themselves, and the developing ethical and political philosophies that drove reform. It also provides, for the first time in 90 years, a detailed and comprehensive commentary on each of the 43 extant fragments of Solon's poetry. In the light of modern scholarship, Ron Owens sets out the story of Solon's life, and examines the nature of the entrenched and threatening political and economic crisis which led to his appointment to high political office; he discusses the manner and consequences of his appointment; seeks to identify both the underlying causes of the crisis and the general outlines of the reform measures adopted by Solon; and, explores both the philosophy and the concept of 'justice' that appears to have underpinned his reform agenda. The work fills a significant gap in archaic Greek scholarship, both nationally and in the wider academic world, in terms of historical analysis, political development and the beginnings of philosophy in the Greek archaic period generally, and at Athens in particular. Solon was an historical figure of great significance, quoted by some 115 classical and post-classical authors, yet in terms of recent scholarship no one since Woodhouse (1938) has written exclusively on him and not since Linforth (1919) has there been a commentary on each individual fragment of Solon's poetry. While recent scholarship has emphasised particular aspects of Solon's works, or particular developments at Athens in which Solon is said to have played a part, this book sets out in full his political and social achievements in the context of the philosophical underpinnings that appear to have privileged the socio-political changes initiated by Solon. 385pp.

Marin, Mihail
Here is a world-class chess repertoire for Black against 1.e4. As the title suggests, the repertoire is based on the respected Spanish Opening, or the Ruy Lopez, as it is sometimes called. In his previous book, "Beating the Open Games", Grandmaster Mihail Marin dealt with White's options up to 3.Bb5. Now Marin provides all the answers for Black after 4.Ba4. This depth of chess expertise has rarely been published for a mass audience before, as grandmasters usually prefer to keep their secrets. The complexity of the material could have been daunting, but Marin is also a master of explaining profound ideas to a wide audience. 232pp.

Reichman-Israelsown, Raymond
In search of the panacea to every ill, The Mind of God takes us on a journey towards the reduction of all questions, and all answers, to one. The universal common denominator - the one without a second, the Kingdom of God - the finding of which will 'add all else' unto us. The author tackles the 'impossible' task of describing the infinite with finite tools - words. He deals with the dilemma of transcending the limitation of words in an effort at expressing the inexpressible, the ineffable, the silence. Within transcendental meditation the word is rendered unnecessary. But words are needed to describe the ladder to reach the transcendent. The book seeks to reconcile the paradox of intellectual and physical work and effortless intuitive revelation and mystical creative realisation. The deepest and most meaningful of expressions do not lie in words, but in the pregnant omniscient infinity between words. The paradox of communication at this level is the necessity to use words to describe the 'wordless.' Exploring reality, creation and the fall of man, man emerges as an expression of God. The Path is the sum of all paths. All religions or spiritual paths lead us Home to Self-Realisation. 182pp.
