Reeve, C. D. C. (editor)
In the early fourth century B.C., Plato founded his famous Athenian school, the Academy. Among the students who came to study there were two women, Axiothea of Phlius, who wore men's clothes, and Lasthenia of Mantinea. In five dialogues, inspired by those of Plato, C. D. C. Reeve imagines these women in conversation with one another, with Plato himself, and with their fellow Academician, Aristotle. The topics they discuss - women, art, justice, freedom, and the nature of reality - are all drawn from Plato's Republic. Their lively exchanges, which quickly engage the reader, are at once an exciting and accessible introduction to some of Republic's central themes and an exploration of some of the most controversial questions we face in trying to make sense of our complexly shared lives. 72pp.

A spin-off from the damming of rivers to generate power should be increased fish production in the new reservoir habitat thus created. But the native fish fauna of Southeast Asia is predominantly riverine, with few species adapted to living in still, open water. In contrast, Africa has many such species and long established experience of lake fisheries. This book brings together a wide spectrum of scattered and previously unpublished information which will be invaluable to the interchange of information on the management of tropical freshwater fisheries in both continents.432pp.N.B.TWO SMALL CLOSED TEARS TO TOP EDGE FRONT D/J.
