Edited By Kaplan, E. Ann and Sprinker, Michael
On his death in October 1990, Louis Althusser remained one of the most controversial of the "master thinkers" to emerge from the Parisian intellectual scene of the 1960s. "The Althusserian Legacy" is a collective attempt to draw up a balance sheet, not on Althusser alone but on the questions that his work pushed to the forefront of Marxist theory. It brings together writing in history, philosophy, economics, sociology, and literary criticism, all of it deriving from or significantly inflected by Althusser. The volume contains an interview with Jacques Derrida, long-time friend and colleague of Althusser at the Ecole Normale in Paris, and concludes with two obituaries by Derrida and Gregory Elliott. The contributors include - Etienne Balibar, Alex Callinicos, Michele Barrett, Alain Lipietz and Gregory Elliott. 245pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Reading crease to spine.

Markham, Leonard
York is one of the most visited cities in Europe, and in this book well-known Yorkshire author Len Markham explores many different facets of its long and extraordinary history - characters, institutions and achievements. We meet a Swiss confectioner who came to England to seek his fortune; on arrival in London, unable to speak a word of English, he was directed to the wrong station, boarded the wrong train and found himself in Yorkshire - where he founded the best-loved teashop in the country. We uncover the far from holy antics of York's former archbishops. We discover what prompted Hitler to order York's destruction. We shiver at the most haunted city in the world. And we learn all about 'Charlie Artful' - a detective who solved more murders than any other officer in the Murder Squad. This really is history with the boring bits left out - and anyone who lives in or visits the beautiful city of York will enjoy the tales that Len Markham tells. 151pp.

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.

Orton, Peter; Fry, John
Health systems throughout the world are undergoing tremendous change and this is particularly true in the United Kingdom, where the reforms over the last ten years have had a major impact on all aspects of how health care is planned, delivered and managed. This work selects, interprets and puts into context the vast amount of information available on health-care systems both in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Key points include the illustration of trends over time, comparisons with other countries and systems and the coverage of all aspects of health care, both public and private. The result is a single source of facts, figures and, most importantly, interpretation of the vast amount of scattered information available on the UK health care system. The book should be of interest to all those involved in the provision of health services: patients, doctors, nurses, managers and policy makers. 178pp.Slightly marked at base of spine.
