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.

Ottolenghi, Smadar
Since Smadar Ottolenghi first published her detailed analysis of Israel's new arbitration law in 1970, she has remained the unrivalled interpreter of arbitration law in her country, and a tireless theorist of improved arbitral procedure. Virtually every Israeli judgement with regard to arbitration in the last thirty years has drawn on her definitive Hebrew treatise, "Arbitration: Law and Procedure", which has been revised and extended twice, in 1980 and again in 1990. This book is Professor Ottolenghi's own English adaptation of her peerless work, and is in fact the most up-to-date edition, as it includes references to hundreds of judgements and other developments that have occurred in the ten years since the publication of the most recent (third) Hebrew edition. Anyone with the need or opportunity to arbitrate in Israel should find all the details they need, including expert guidance on such important substantive and procedural matters as the following: phrasing the arbitration clause; matters in rem; sole arbitration versus party arbitration; successors to arbitration agreements; settlement of labour disputes under arbitral agreements; The court's involvement in arbitration proceedings; responsibility for arbitrator's remuneration; limitations upon the arbitrator's powers; setting aside an arbitrator's award; effect of international conventions; and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. To enhance communication between English-speaking readers - lawyers, arbitrators, and other professionals and business people who should find this book immensely useful - and their Israeli correspondents, the paragraph numbering in this edition is identical with that of the third Hebrew Edition. Detailed indexes should add greatly to the book's usefulness by making it easy to find material through several different avenues. 563pp.

Bryan, Liz
Experience history and the outdoors in "Country Roads of Alberta", an intriguing new photographic guidebook that takes you to places you've never been before. Alberta's scenery is as diverse as its topography. Fringed along its western edge by high mountains, the land descends through foothills to stretch into undulating plains sculpted by ancient ice into ridges, hills and deep coulees. Under the changing light of the prairie sky, the rolling landscape reveals tipi rings and medicine wheels - remnants of the first people to call this land home - as well as marks of later civilisation: homesteads, old barns, churches and the graveyards of the first immigrants.Antelope, wild goats, moose, beaver, prairie dogs and birds are among the bountiful wildlife that flourish here. In "Country Roads of Alberta", Liz Bryan guides readers along the back roads of this beautiful landscape. In addition to driving directions and maps, Bryan includes snippets of archaeology, history, geology and other interesting information. The heart of her book, though, is in her magnificent, full-colour photos that celebrate Alberta's many landscapes - some still wild, and all most beautiful. 160pp.
