Nansen, Ralph
Presenting a bold solution for global climate change and dependence on oil - and the threat of war over its diminishing supply - this visionary reference explores how developing solar energy could bring about unprecedented economic prosperity and opportunity on a global scale. By using existing technology in revolutionary ways, this new energy plan would have the potential to create jobs and revitalise the economy while offering a clean, affordable, and long-term solution. Asserting that the current generation can develop this innovative energy source to change the world economically, environmentally, and politically for the better, this stunning guide offers an unexpected new hope for the future. 203pp.

Baross, Zsuzsa
In 2004, Jacques Derrida gave one of his final interviews prior to his death. Regarding the future of his work, Derrida advanced two contradictory hypotheses: "I will not be read"; and "despite a handful of good readers ...I am yet to be read". This book is an homage to the spirit of Derrida, and seeks to grasp the significance of his death on the rich corpus of his work, in a voice that remains true to the 'faithful betrayals' of Derrida's own works of deconstuction. Two key journeys underpin Posthumously. The first is an exploration of both Derrida and deconstruction through the unusual prism of cinema and photography, bringing into play Gilles Deleuze's concept of creative repetition. In the second journey, the author embarks on a detailed engagement with Derrida's oft-neglected book on drawing, "Memoirs of the Blind", and provides a subversive reading of that text, arguing that its labyrinthine turns (confession, self-portrait, and mourning) obscure a secret ambition to stage the last battle between its own graphic trait and the image in full colour. Beneath this vivid canopy, Zsuzsa Baross brings together a collection of shorter pieces developing the meaning of the term 'posthumous' in the world of writing and literary criticism, interrogating Derrida's posthumous lesson on 'learning to live'. The final act in this unique volume analyses Derrida's last hand-written note; a note, the author argues, that reopens the question of the posthumous and provides an infinitely moving lesson on life. 164pp.

Chapman, David; Cowdell, Theo
In this text, the authors have examined the whole issue of the relationships between the public sector institutions and their various markets. They discuss how the public sector needs to fully understand the needs and motives of all its users before it can resource the many goods and services it provides and ensure ultimate user satisfaction. They describe how the application of market forces in the public sector is not solely about cost accounting but is significantly about the behaviour of individuals and groups in an informed society. The text recognises the complexity of the public sector and its markets. It uses a range of examples to demonstrate the applicability of appropriate marketing frameworks within the public sector context. 390pp. N.B. Corners slightly creased.
