Howells, William
Three individuals left footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on human feet, they had crossed a threshold in the long path of their evolution from vertebrates, mammals and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not entirely clear, spread out, flourished and disappeared; some became the people of today. Although we know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still more to be learned about where, when and how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans who co-existed with each other and who might be here today but are not. Now updated and revised to reflect the latest findings and their implications, renowned anthropologist, author, and educator, William Howells draws together here the latest from all today's sciences to tell the fascinating stories of our evolution. 266pp.

Gershon, Alik and Nor, Igor
San Luis 2005 is the most celebrated chess tournament of the decade. Bulgarian Grandmaster, Veselin Topalov triumphed and proved that he is a worthy successor to World Champions such as Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. In this ambitious work, Gershon and Nor analyse all the games from the tournament, but there is no danger of the reader drowning in masses of variations, as the authors clearly explain the ideas behind the moves. Tournament books used to be a familiar part of chess literature with Zurich 1953 a classic example, however such books are now rare because of the huge effort they demand from the authors. Gershon and Nor have risen to the challenge and produced a book that is destined to become a modern classic, a magnificent book worthy of an extraordinary tournament. Many colour photographs of the event and the surrounding Argentinean scenery help the reader feel what it was like to be at San Luis 2005. 442pp.

Edited By Guild,Elspeth
The origins of free movement of persons in the European Union are to be found in a conference held at King's College London, organized by the Immigration Law Practitioners' Association and the Centre of European Law at King's College, with the sponsorship of the European Commission. Published to mark the 30th anniversary of that conference, this book is divided into two sections, the first of which deals with the implementation of rights of nationals in the European Union to move, reside and pursue economic activities in other member-states. The second part looks at the development of European law regulating the movement, residence and economic activities of third-country nationals within the territory of the Union. The two sections are analyzed both by reference to the black-letter law and the social consequences attendant upon migration within the European Union. 175pp.
