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.

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. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Corners slightly bumped.

Schmiegel, W.; Scholmerich, J. (Editors)
Falk Symposium 109. Colorectal cancer is one of the most common causes of tumour-associated death in Western countries, and its incidence has been increasing in recent decades. The most important determinant for the course of the disease is tumour stage at the time of diagnosis. The detection of molecular changes in tumour tissue and in benign adenomatous polyps has improved our knowledge of colorectal carcinogenesis. Diseases with a high risk for malignant transformation, as well as family predisposition as an independent risk factor, have been identified. Furthermore, dietary and environmental factors, together with the intake of aspirin and other NSAIDs, influence tumour development. This implies new ways of specific testing for early diagnosis and new prevention strategies based on endoscopy and drug therapy. 282pp.

Joekes, Susan
In this book, emerging long-term trends in the world economy are analysed to show their effect on the economic position of women in developing countries. Stressing the interlinkages between the macro and micro levels of the economy, the book approaches the subject from the perspective of both wage earning women and those in roles of unpaid labour such as housework and farmwork. The book provides the first methodological synthesis of these approaches to portray women in developing countries as active participants in development. Analysing the employment trends for women by geographical region and by sector the author assesses how the emergence of a modern international economy has affected the economic position of women. 161pp. N.B.
