Whelan, Richard
Slight crease to the spine. Slight crease to head of d/j spine. The author describes the causes, events and consequences of a conflict he calls "a world war in miniature". He addresses such questions as why the Truman administration decided to intrude militarily in Korea after merely protesting when Eastern Europe and China fell to the communists, why the United States risked causing World War III to save a repressive regime and why the Americans settled for something less than the resounding victory they had come to expect. In Whelan's analysis, the war had momentous repercussions for NATO, the UN, Russia, China and the arms race. And it provided the prologue to America's next war in Asia - Vietnam. 428pp.

Barrett, Trevor
The Isle of Man snuggles cosily between the coastlines of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - yet is not part of the UK or the EU. Head of State is the Duke of Normandy - yet female. Crime rates are extremely low - yet use of a simple three-letter word in public is almost tantamount to treason. This book portrays the Isle of Man in a new light - a book to appeal not only to the people of this unique island nation but also to a far wider audience.168pp. N.B. Top edge of rear D/J creased.

Green, Roger and Trigoso, Joana
N.B.Top inch of book spine has been bumped otherwise As New.This book is copiously illustrated with archive photographs as well as high quality pictures depicting the Portuguese golf resorts developed under the Jordan Group banner, including photographs of many of the world's top golfers in action and famous personalities from sport, show-business, politics and business who attended the many major events organised by the Group. The main theme of the book centres on how the Andre Jordan Group changed the whole course of golfing history in Europe and boosted tourism in the Algarve by setting a new trend in golf and leisure resort development which others were later to imitate if not equal. Quinta do Lago, based on the American country club concept, was the first of its kind in Portugal and it became the blueprint for the future development of residential golf resorts in Portugal. The emphasis in the editorial is on creativity and innovation and especially the Group's commitment to strict eco-friendly principles in the design and construction or renovation and management of quality resorts (ie: Quinta do Lago, Belas Clube de Campo and Vilamoura) which today boast championship courses recognised as world class. The story also strongly underlines the imaginative marketing and new ideas that, for example, brought the Portuguese Open to Quinta da Lago in 1976 and helped to keep the championship on the European calendar at a very difficult time. A further series of seven Opens were to follow at Quinta do Lago as well as many other major tournaments such as the Algarve World Cup and the Taca Presidente da Republica. These events attracted worldwide Press and TV coverage, thereby promoting the region as a tourist destination and doing much to encourage investment. Some of the most prominent names in the world of golf have contributed information, recollections, anecdotes and commendations on the achievements of the Andre Jordan Group and this has done much to enliven and enrich the editorial. They include Arnold Palmer, Colin Montgomerie, William 'Rocky' Roquemore, William Hawtree, Ken Schofield, and, Peter Adams.248pp.
