Werner, Frank R.
Hans Dieter Schaal is already something of a cultural institution in Germany. Trained as an architect, he always operates outside the "mainstream", designing and realizing stage sets, sculptures, cemeteries, parks, squares, spatial installations or book projects, which are often trend setters in their own field. In the last 10 years, Schaal has established a focal point that seems to be the sum of all his themes: exhibition architecture. He has provided expansive installations for the broadest possible range of exhibition subjects in such high-volume buildings as the Martin-Gropius-Bau or the Zeughaus in Berlin, the Haus der Geschichte in Bonn, the Kunstvereinsgebaude in Stuttgart, the Deutsches Postmuseum in Frankfurt am Main or the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome. His work was never mere "exhibition design" in these cases. Instead of this he was always concerned to tell spatial stories about the exhibits or their historical background. Of course he was able to draw on his experience in stage-set design here. Admittedly Schaal would not be Schaal, if he were not to use the whole stock of ideas from his decades of "lateral thinking" or his insatiable search for archetypes and images. On occasions this has meant that Schaal's exhibitions were admired simply because of their spatial sensations. It was only the very few people who were prepared to analyse the extraordinarily extensive and complex work more profoundly who found a carefully established subliminal relationship network of selected motifs running through all his exhibition installations like a central theme. Sometimes they come from his own early work, sometimes from literary or cinematic finds, then again from psychological-philosophical footnotes or even private obsessions. Such image particles constitute a thought-edifice - perhaps comparable only with Aby Warburg's legendary picture archive - which breaks right through the bounds of traditional exhibition architecture. 159pp.

Chapman, David; Cowdell, Theo
In this text, the authors have examined the whole issue of the relationships between the public sector institutions and their various markets. They discuss how the public sector needs to fully understand the needs and motives of all its users before it can resource the many goods and services it provides and ensure ultimate user satisfaction. They describe how the application of market forces in the public sector is not solely about cost accounting but is significantly about the behaviour of individuals and groups in an informed society. The text recognises the complexity of the public sector and its markets. It uses a range of examples to demonstrate the applicability of appropriate marketing frameworks within the public sector context. 390pp. N.B. Corners slightly creased.

Adair, John
With the rapid trend away from management to business leadership, there is a need for a new, broader understanding of leadership. This clear and authoritative guide answers the questions, 'what is strategic leadership?', 'what makes a person effective as a strategic leader?' and 'how can I develop my abilities as a leader?' The concept of leadership is relevant not only to organisational life but to all of us: everyone has to 'lead' their own life. To be a strategic life-leader means developing a vision and direction for one's life, identifying personal core values and fostering an informal team among colleagues and associates. 'Effective Strategic Leadership' is as important for unstructured careers as it is in large companies or organisations.

Flax, Jane
"Disputed Subjects" analyzes the assumptions behind contemporary notions of justice and knowledge and discusses why modernity cannot be emancipatory. The text explores the effects of gender relations in modern political ideas and theories of knowledge. The author identifies problematic aspects of discourses such as psychoanalysis, postmodernism and feminist theory. Special attention is paid to recurring difficulties with maternity, sexuality and race within feminist theory, and the inadequacies of postmodern accounts of subjectivity and gender. The book analyzes psychoanalysis to identify its particular organization of knowledge and power. Previous owner's signature on ffep.188pp.
