Does life have purpose and meaning? This question is a fount of anxiety that plagues mankind. No one has yet provided a definitive and believable answer that will allow humans to live in mental harmony. "Angst and Evolution" is a pragmatic investigation into life. It attempts to reveal and make sense of the struggle for human potential. Evidence is gathered and synthesised from the scientific, mythic, literary and cultural experience gained by our presence on planet Earth.224pp. N.B. Small dent to head of spine and D/J spine.

Twyman, Michael
In the last few decades lithography has become the major book production process, but its versatility and potential for short-run, "do it yourself" publishing were first exploited early in the 19th century. The arrival of desk top publishing has stimulated an interest in this once neglected, but now very relevant, area of printing history, and Twyman's meticulous research presents the reader with a minute account of the subject. He describes the design and production of a wide range of publications, from a broad variety of sources, for whom lithography promised a flexibility unobtainable from letterpress. However, some of his most interesting accounts and demonstrations are of hopes disappointed and a return to letterpress. This text is a study of the potential of lithography for "do it yourself" publication in the 19th century by the military (manuals), antiquarians (catalogues), by those needing special types (Champollion on hieroglyphs, Pitman on shorthand) and by publishers mixing text with illustration and tables. There were a great variety of users whose output is later mirrored in the "camera ready" books of the 1960s and 1970s. 374pp. N.B. Very very slight fading to top edge of boards and spine.

Edited By Booij,Geert and Van Marle,Jaap
The Yearbook of Morphology series, published since 1988, has proven to be an eminent support for an upswing of morphological research, since it contains articles on topics which are central in the theoretical debates which are frequently referred to. "The Yearbook of Morphology 1999" focuses on diachronic morphology, and shows, in a number of articles by specialists, how complicated morphological systems develop in the course of time. In addition, this volume deals with a number of hotly debated issues in theoretical morphology: its interaction with phonology (including Optimality Theory), the relation between inflection and word formation, and the formal modelling of inflectional systems. A feature of this volume is an article on morphology in sign language, a new area of research in linguistics. The relevant evidence comes from a wide variety of languages, amongst which Germanic, Romance, and Slavic languages are prominent. 319pp.

This yearbook aims to provide an intellectual forum for the systematic analysis and scientific dissection of issues of international law as they apply to Africa, as well as Africa's contribution to the progressive development of international law. It contributes to the promotion, acceptance of and respect for the principles of international law, as well as to the encouragement of the teaching, study, dissemination and wider appreciations of international law in Africa. The yearbook examines the tensions underlying the State in Africa, and examines the causes of the fragility of African State institutions so as to facilitate the identification of appropriate remedies. The tension and interrelationships among issues such as territorial integrity, self determination, ethnic diversity and nation-building are addressed. Development, human rights and democratization in Africa are also the subject of attention and examination. The special theme of this volume is "Refugees and Displaced Persons in Africa". 541pp.
