There is no longer any doubt that public access to computer software and information is essential for the economic development of every country on earth, rich and poor. Yet it is precisely here, in this most forward-looking of technologies, that the ancient legal battle lines of private ownership versus public interest are being drawn again, with extreme intransigence, in the field of international law pertaining to intellectual property rights. In a situation bristling with ironies, it is particularly disturbing that the rampant software piracy in developing nations undermines local development of this crucial economic sector, halting growth and actually reinforcing the global dominance of a few US companies. It is urgently necessary to create a legal framework that not only protects licensors and makes piracy unattractive, but also fosters the growth of software and information industries in every country - and particularly in those emerging countries most desperate for economic recovery. This text presents the case for such a framework. 302pp.

Cook, Judith
This biography tells the story of a woman who lived totally outside the conventions of her time, Mary Bryant, a Cornish fisherman's daughter turned highway robber. Sentenced to hang in 1786, she was instead transported to Australia, from where she made a daring escape, only to be recaptured and brought back to London chained to the ship's deck in an open cage. Imprisoned in Newgate, and again threatened with death, her cause was championed by James Boswell, who was so taken by her that he defended her at her trial, winning her first a reprieve and then a full pardon. May Bryant's life reads like romantic fiction, yet this quietly spoken woman from a respectable home, who was not considered conventionally attractive, lived more dangerously than any fictitious heroine. Judith Cook has pieced together her life from various sources, including Boswell's diaries and archive material in Australia, Holland and the United States.256pp.

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.
