Allum, Edward L.
This is an exploration of gold panning adventures in the 'Mother Lode' ( the 'Gold Country') in California. With humour, faith, optimism, and spirit, "The Fiddletown Journal" chronicles the daily struggles endured by miners of 1849 and it parodies the miners today. It is an inspiring story of five men who joined forces to search for gold. The book touches on the history of California's Gold Rush and many small mining towns. It is a useful travel guide for anyone who wants to visit the Mother Lode towns, restaurants, shops, and casinos. 79pp.

Edited By Brizga, Sandra and Finlayson, Brian
Only in Australasia can the effect of technological societies on river systems be truly analysed and this unique, accessible book covers key issues in river management from a geomorphological perspective. Australia and New Zealand were colonised only 200 years ago by central bureaucratic administrations. For the whole period of European settlement most river management activities have been carried out by government agencies and the record of their activities is relatively complete. These countries therefore provide good case studies for the impact of technological societies on river systems, having transformed their rivers in a short time from their 'natural' into a heavily managed condition. Geomorphology provides the scientific basis for much of our understanding of river behaviour and geomorphologists are now actively involved in the management process. This book provides a collection of case studies, the first to be produced to date, which describe the management of rivers covering issues of environmental flow, stream condition, mining and extractive activities, river channel change, river stabilisation, river regulation and urban streams. The book will prove invaluable to geomorphologists, river engineers, stream ecologists, river managers, and environmental impact assessors involved in river management and restoration.301pp.

Dubois, Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault, Antonio Gramsci, V.I. Lenin, Jurgen Habermas, Adolph Hitler and others. Its range and innovative character will assuredly make this anthology the major primary work in political theory for many years to come. 415pp. N.B. Corners slightly bumped.

McDonald, Lynn
Arguing that the beginnings of the social sciences extend much further back than is generally realized, this study traces the methodological foundations, research techniques, and basic concepts of the social sciences from their earliest origins to the beginning of this century. It provides empirical refutation of recent radical political, feminist, and environmentalist critiques that assert that the social sciences inevitably support the power relations of the status quo, are antithetical to the interests of women, and are inherently linked to the domination and destruction of nature. Covering the important eras in the development of the social sciences, this work deals with the early Greeks, the emergence of the scientific method in the 17th century (especially Bacon, Descartes, and Locke), the French Enlightenment (especially Voltaire, Diderot, Condorcet, and Germaine de Stael), and British moral philosophy (especially Hume, Smith, and Catharine Macauley). From the 19th century it includes figures such as Marx, Durkheim, Weber, Quetelet, Harriet Martineau, Florence Nightingale, J.S. Mill, Harriet Taylor Mill, and Beatrice Webb. 397pp. N.B.
