Fox, James
Drawn from the private family archive, this book recounts a family's dramatic reinvention and transformation on both sides of the Atlantic. "All of the Langhorne sisters are people one has to notice", wrote Eleanor Roosevelt from the White House in 1945. This effect and their great fame held sway first in the South, in Virginia, then the rest of America and England. High spirited, beautiful, clannish and adored, these five strikingly different women were mythologized in the plural long after their separate careers were a matter of history. Lizzie was the strict, puritan eldest sister, Irene was the flirtatious and golden southern belle. Nancy was flamboyant and powerful, and, after a disastrous first marriage, launched herself first on the stuffy ruling classes of England and then the House of Commons as the first woman MP. The luminous and melancholy Phyllis was a brilliant horsewoman and the only person Nancy loved all through her life. Nora was the eternal child, her life punctuated with seductions and boltings. This exploration of family myth unravels the darker stories: the tragic lives of Nancy and Phyllis's children by their first marriages. Placing his great aunt Nancy and grandmother Phyllis at its heart, the book looks at how their past lives and mistakes in America came back to haunt them. Told in their own intimate voices, selected from thousands of letters and journals, the book charts the attempts of two extraordinary women to transform themselves and to build new lives, and the chain of events that would destroy their family lives and happiness. Top edge of D/J slightly creased. Small tear to top corner of D/J on front wrapper. 578pp.

Gosling, Philip
Between 1980 and 2000, local authorities in the UK were required by the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980, and later by the Local Government Acts of 1988 and 1992, to demonstrate competitiveness in procurement through a statutory Compulsory Competitive Tendering (CCT) procedure regulated by the Secretary of State. Although CCT was abolished in January 2000, its intensive application over a 20-year period has left a lasting legacy in the conduct of local public procurement in the UK. In addition, the interaction of CCT and European law - in particular, that relating to public procurement and the transfer of undertakings - continues to have significance for local authorities throughout the EU. This book is the outcome of research into the effects of CCT on two English local authorities. Its detailed analysis examines the CCT legislation, the principal legal and practical issues that it raised both in the UK and for the EU, its effects on the two local authorities selected for study and the broader implications for local public procurement in general. 294pp.

Nielsen, Kai; Edited By Seymour, Michel and Fritsch, Matthias
Kai Nielsen has been the towering figure of Canadian philosophy over the last forty years. In this discussion and appreciation of Nielsen's work, highly respected specialists in the philosophy of religion, philosophical methodology (or metaphilosophy), and moral and political philosophy consider various aspects of his voluminous contributions and, at the same time, provide broad access to current philosophical debates. The volume contains not only twenty original papers on Nielsen's thought, but also his detailed responses to these critical essays. Among the outstanding contributors are Antony Kenny (philosophy and religion), Richard Rorty(methodology/metaphilosophy), Steven Lukes (Marxism), Norman Daniels (global justice), and Kok Chor Tan (nationalism). Despite the wide variety of these themes, Nielsen's body of work and his responses here show that it is possible to develop a systematic approach that links difference areas of philosophy within one perspective. This stimulating collection will thus attract readers in many different specialities. 431pp.
