Tunney, Sean
Labour sought to develop policies regulating newspaper ownership and the role of journalists. It endeavoured to both correct what it perceived as press bias against the Labour Party and to address the broader issues of political and cultural diversity. "Labour's & the Press, 1972-2005" provides a lucid analysis of how Labour's policies on the press sit within the context of the party's overall development - from Harold Wilson, through the party's flirtation with Robert Maxwell, to the robust approach of Tony Blair. It offers a fresh insight into New Labour's concern with press management and political communications. The author demonstrates how tensions of the past shed new light on Labour Party practices of the present. 212pp.

Anderson,Duane
Rain gods and their relatives developed out of an earlier tradition of larger hollow clay figurines, the earliest of which was collected at Tesuque Pueblo in 1879. They continue to be produced at Tesuque Pueblo to this day, constituting the longest continuous figurative art tradition in the Southwest. This book traces the evolution of the rain god from tourist art to Indian self-identity and self-expression. Importantly, it studies a popular form that has heretofore failed to earn the serious attention of scholars and collecting institutions and further the discourse on how art is defined and valued.144pp.Rear cover corner slightly creased.

Blinkenberg, Lars
One of the most persistent area of conflict since World-War II, the Indo-Pakistan troubles, "celebrated" their 50th anniversary in the second half of 1997 without there being any solution in sight. Since august 1947, when the two new states were created out of British India, there has been almost uninterrupted conflict between India and Pakistan. On three occasions, in 1947, in 1965 and 1971, it has led to war. The first volume of India-Pakistan is a study of the historical background to the conflict, while the second volume provides analysis of the many structural factors, in particular with regard to the political background in India during the first period of conflict. Differences arose out of a post-colonial settlement which was driven by the old British policy of "Divide and Rule", but which was effected in a special way due to the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru´s and to the suggestions of the Viceroy Mountbatten. This volume also includes interviews with many, politicians and journalists among them, who have been deeply involved in and have an intimate knowledge of the subcontinent and its recent history. 433pp.

Sharp, Dennis
Known as the 'Big Eye', the Oita Stadium is one of the chosen venues for the next World Cup in 2002. It will be reused for the second stage of the Japan Inter-Prefectural Athletic Competition in 2008 after the World Cup, continuing to grow in the future to become a large-scale all-purpose sports park for Oita. The whole site covers an area of 225 ha and has several facilities outside the main football stadium. These include general fitness, training and lodging centres, a botanical pool, two multipurpose athletic fields, two rugby and soccer practise pitches, a softball field, tennis courts and other game areas. The main stadium features an open track for athletic events as well as the football pitch. It can also be used year-round for public events aided by its retractable roof. For soccer matches, spectator seats are placed right up to the edge of the pitch to bring them close to the action. To change over for track events a retractable seating system was developed. The stadium sits elegantly on its site, enhanced by the gentle curves of its spherical design. The choice of the sphere, Kurokawa says, is 'an expression of abstract symbolism'. This spherical shape also enables the retractable portion to move along its curved surface. The use of Teflon membrane panels with 25 percent light permeability obviates the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours. In order for the pitch to get proper exposure to sunlight the elliptical roof opening runs along the north-south axis. A main arch with perpendicular horizontal sub-members follows the elliptical shape of the roof opening. Between the roof and the spectator seating below the surrounding mountains can be seen from a slender ventilation clearstorey set just below the roof line. This slit of space is designed to create a feeling of openness inside the stadium. Since the original design, an idea emerged for a moving camera to be located on the main beam to deliver special dynamic images for television audiences around the world. 43pp.
