The push towards greater autonomy is one of the three main trends in every modern educational policy, alongside quality assurance and quality evaluation techniques and the need to devote attention to special - and often disadvantaged - target groups. It is, however, difficult to derive a unified concept of "autonomy" from the comparative indicators which are published on a regular basis and it has emerged that there are significant differences depending on the specific area and the administrative organization of education in the country in question. During the discussions of the annual Congress of the European Association for Education Law and Policy (ELA) in Salzburg (1998) it was apparent that autonomy has to be considered in its various applications. Autonomy for school boards is realised through management, administrative mechanisms, management of staff and pedagogical options. Autonomy of administration requires competence, the willingness to establish an autonomous administration and awareness of each party's responsibility in the educational process. The contents of this Yearbook are an answer to the question of how legislatures are responding to the trend towards greater responsibility, decentralization and autonomy. It is an overview of the efforts made by the Member States of the European Union to apply the principle of subsidiarity. 448pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of spine.

Edited By Parkinson,Christopher Etc
The timing of toxicological studies in relation to the clinical evaluation of new medicines is a key topic for strategic planners in the industry and those involved with harmonization. Resolving the anomalies between different regulatory authorities should eliminate redundant testing on animals and improve the efficiency of the developmental process by encouraging single international strategies. To aid industry in reaching a consensus, the Centre for Medicines Research has brought together representatives of the pharmaceutical industry from Europe, Japan and the USA to give a comprehensive account of current international industry positions on the subject. The contributions in this text review the situation and address the clinical and strategic requirements of the pre-clinical programme. Personal and consensus proposals on the toxicity studies required to initiate clinical investigations, the timing of reproductive toxicity tests and the duration of repeat-dose studies to support clinical development are provided. Small mark at base of spine.128pp.

Burns, Kathryn
In "Colonial Habits" Kathryn Burns transforms our view of nuns as marginal recluses to one of central actors on the colonial stage. Beginning with the 1558 founding of South America's first convent, Burns shows how nuns in Cuzco, Peru played an active part in reproducing an Andean colonial order in which economic and spiritual interests were inextricably fused.Based on unprecedented archival research, "Colonial Habits" demonstrates how nuns became leading guarantors of their city's social order by making loans, managing property, containing 'unruly' women, and raising girls. The study also reveals, however, their active part in subjugating Incas and creating a Creole elite. Coining the phrase 'spiritual economy' to analyze the intricate investments and relationships that enabled Cuzco's convents to thrive, Burn explains how, by the late 1700s, this economy had faltered badly, making convents the emblems of decay and a focal point for intense criticism of a failing colonial regime. The book concludes with the nuns' post colonial retreat from their previous roles, marginalized in the construction of a new republican order. "Colonial Habits" will engage those interested in early modern economics, women in religion, Latin American studies, and the history of gender, class, and race. 307pp. N.B.

Green, Karen
Previous owner's signature on ffep.This important and timely book challenges the direction taken by much recent work in the field of feminist studies. It mounts a powerful defence of humanism - a tradition of which many contemporary feminists have been sharply critical.Many feminists have viewed 'reason' and 'rationality' with deep suspicion. They have argued that reason was constructed by male philosophers in a way that excluded feminine traits: the man of reason was a masculine fiction.But this rejection of humanism assumes that there is only one tradition of humanism and only one conception of the rational individual. By carefully re-examining the texts of a feminist humanist tradition, Karen Green uncovers a different conception of the rational individual - a 'female version of rationality'. She captures the specificity of women's thought through a careful examination of their writings and their differences from the work of their male contemporaries.On this basis, Green argues that we need to reconceptualize both rationality and liberalism. Maintaining the ideal of rationality is quite compatible with understanding ourselves as embodied, emotional creatures whose sense of self is made up of a mixture of reason and feeling. Feminist humanism can provide a firm basis for political action and a compelling defence of equal political representation for women and men.211pp.
