Dempsey, Eric
Covers the whole process of appreciating birds on a generic level to the specific methods of identifying different species of birds. It is illustrated throughout with stunning full-colour images taken by some of Europe's leading bird and wildlife photographers. Part one covers many subjects from choosing the right binoculars to a more advanced understanding of how birds use their feathers and beaks. It looks at Ireland as a bird-watching country, and examines the different Irish seasonal migrations.It explains how and why birds communicate, their various nesting strategies, why Ireland has lost some birds and gained new ones, and examines the concept of what makes a species a species. Part two begins with 'Eric Dempsey's Ten Steps to Bird Identification'. This is Eric's own original, tried-and-tested method for the identification of Ireland's birds. It provides the best techniques to identify all the species you might encounter, from garden birds to ducks and geese, from owls to warblers and gulls. Written in a relaxed and easy-to-read style, and rich with breath-taking photographs, "Birdwatching in Ireland" is the book for anyone who has an interest in Ireland's birds. 229pp.Slight bump to bottom right corners.

Lindsey, Gene
Saudi Arabia is the centre of religious life for over one billion Muslims. It is the birthplace of Islam, Wahhabism, Osama bin Laden and most of the 9/11 hijackers. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia controls over one quarter of the world's diminishing oil reserves and billions of dollars worth of investments in the West and is often referred to as the only 'family-owned business in the United Nations'. The way the Saudis think, express themselves, act, work and solve problems is of increasing and overwhelming significance to the world. This candid, penetrating view of the culture, history and evolution of Saudi Arabia offers a thorough understanding of how the country developed and why things are as they are. 410pp.

Said, Edward W.
A 'beginning,' especially as embodied in much modern thought, is its own method, Edward Said argues in this classic treatise on the role of the intellectual and the goal of criticism. Distinguishing between 'origin', which is divine, mythical, and privileged, and 'beginning,' which is secular and humanly produced, Said traces the ramifications and diverse understandings of the concept of beginning through history. A beginning is a first step in the intentional production of meaning and the production of difference from preexisting traditions. It authorizes subsequent texts - it both enables them and limits what is acceptable. Drawing on the insights of Vico, Valery, Nietzsche, Saussure, Levi-Strauss, Husserl, and Foucault, Said recognizes the novel as the major attempt in Western literary culture to give beginnings an authorizing function in experience, art, and knowledge.Scholarship should see itself as a beginning - as a uniting of theory and practice. Said's insistence on a criticism that is humane and socially responsible is what makes "Beginnings" a book about much more than writing: it is about imagination and action as well as the constraints on freedom and invention that come from human intention and the method of its fulfillment. 414pp. N.B.

Gershon, Alik and Nor, Igor
San Luis 2005 is the most celebrated chess tournament of the decade. Bulgarian Grandmaster, Veselin Topalov triumphed and proved that he is a worthy successor to World Champions such as Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. In this ambitious work, Gershon and Nor analyse all the games from the tournament, but there is no danger of the reader drowning in masses of variations, as the authors clearly explain the ideas behind the moves. Tournament books used to be a familiar part of chess literature with Zurich 1953 a classic example, however such books are now rare because of the huge effort they demand from the authors. Gershon and Nor have risen to the challenge and produced a book that is destined to become a modern classic, a magnificent book worthy of an extraordinary tournament. Many colour photographs of the event and the surrounding Argentinean scenery help the reader feel what it was like to be at San Luis 2005. 442pp.
