Booij, Geert.; Marle, Jaap Van
A revival of interest in morphology has occurred during recent years. "The Yearbook of Morphology" series, published since 1988, has proven to be an eminent support for this upswing of morphological research, since it contains articles on topics which are central in the current theoretical debates which are frequently referred to. In the "Yearbook of Morphology 2002", a number of articles is devoted to the morphology of a variety of pidgin and creole languages which appear to have much more morphology than traditionally assumed. A second topic of this volume is the morphological use of truncation for the coinage of proper names in Germanic and Romance languages, in particular endearment forms, with highly interesting consequences for the theory of phonology-morphology interaction. Thirdly, this volume contains articles on how affixes are combined and ordered in complex words, and the complex linguistic principles behind these orderings. 324pp.N.B.Base of spine slightly marked.

Johnston, S.F.; Divall, Colin
Chemical engineering - as a recognized skill in the workplace, as an academic discipline, and as an acknowledged profession - is scarcely a century old. Yet from a contested existence before the First World War, chemical engineering had become one of the "big four" engineering professions in Britain, and a major contributor to Western economies by the end of the 20th century. The subject had distinct national trajectories. In Britain - too long seen as shaped by American experiences - the emergence of recognized chemical engineers was the result of professional aspirations and contingency, and shaped by a shifting ecology of institutions, firms and government. Drawing upon extensive archival research, this book examines the evolution of technical practice, working environment and social interactions of chemical engineering. It should be of considerable interest to historians, sociologists of the professions, and to practitioners themselves. Volume 20 in Chemists and Chemistry series.347pp.

Meier, Peg
Boys with a sprinkler, nuns at a ball game, proud hunters with their quarry - this collection of over three hundred pictures dating from the earliest cameras to the mid-twentieth century offers a trip back in time. Peg Meier, award-winning former reporter for the "Star Tribune", also shares excerpts collected from diaries and letters that allow Minnesotans of ages past to comment on pine tree vistas, harvest bounty, and the weather, always the weather. First published in 1993, the beloved "Too Hot, Went to Lake" promises a history of the state and its people that's easy to enjoy. 309pp.

Andrews III,William Lee
Outer space is in constant use. Most obviously, billions of "packets" of information travel through it every day, for the infinitely various purposes of countless people and organizations. Space platforms increasingly provide important research data for businesses, institutions, and governments. Taxation issues are inevitable. In fact, tax planners have for several years been engaged in designing tax incentives to enhance the development of space commerce. A significant focus of this book is an in-depth evaluation of the current US discussion of tax rules designed to stimulate space commerce in 2001. The debate is placed squarely in its complete context of historic developments and constraints, prevailing tax law (in this case the US internal revenue code), and the body of international and national space law that began with the 1967 Space Treaty. Comparative analysis is provided by examination of corresponding schemes evolving in Canada, Japan, Australia, and France. Specific events, developments, issues, and probabilities dealt with in "The Taxation of Space Commerce" include the following: the economic significance of the Challenger launch in 1986; the value of F.J. Turner's classic "frontier" thesis for understanding the "new frontier" of space; the Commercial Space Launch Act of 1984 (US); the role of the US internal revenue code's foreign tax credit; the 1979 Moon Treaty; remote-sensing and nuclear power; the 1998 Inter-Governmental Space Station Agreement; case law, especially Smith v. United States; multinational vs. unilateral taxation schemes; benefits of space commerce for society as a whole; and competitiveness and economic efficiency. As a major contribution to the literature of space law and tax law, this text aims to fill an important need. Beyond that, it is a work which should be of value not only for taxation specialists and communications industry executives and their counsel, but for any enterprise with an eye to the not-too-distant future. 144pp.

Edited By Lahteenmaki,Maria & Snellman,Hanna
The West has always been a resource for the Finns. Scholars, artists and other professionals have sought contacts from Europe throughout the centuries. The Finnish experience in Western Europe and the New World is a story of migrant labourers, expatriates and specialists working abroad. But you don't have to be born in Finland to be a Finn. The experiences of second-generation Finnish immigrants and their descendants open up new possibilities for understanding the relationship between Finland and the West. The Finnish passage westward has not always crossed national borders. Karelian evacuees headed west, as did young people from the Finnish countryside when opportunities to make a living in agriculture and forestry diminished in the post-war era. The legacy of these migrants is still visible in the suburbs of Finnish cities today. This book is a joint effort of the Department of Ethnology and the Department of History at the University of Helsinki. It was written by Ph. D. students supervised by Academy Research Fellows Maria Lahteenmaki and Hanna Snellman, in collaboration with colleagues abroad interested in current research in ethnology and history. 247pp.N.B.Two corners slightly bumped.
