Davey, P. J. , Freke, D. J. And Higgins, D. A.
This volume is a full report on three excavations carried out in Castletown: Castle Rushen (1989); Bank Street (1989); and Castle Rushen Stores (1992). The first, carried out by David Freke, is concerned with the medieval and post-medieval castle; the second, carried out by Andrew Johnson, and the third, carried out by David Higgins, reveal a developing urban archaeology in the 16th century and later. The Castle Rushen Stores excavation, in particular, is important as the first major urban excavation on the Isle of Man. An introductory chapter sets the context for the excavations in historical, cultural and geographical terms. Part 1 considers the Castle Rushen excavation, in general and in terms of a wide range of specialist information - bone implements, coins, clay pipes, flint, glass, ironwork, non-ferrous metal, pottery, and stone and plaster. Part 2 reports on the Bank Street excavation and presents the pottery evidence found on the site. In Part 3 a report on the Castle Rushen Stores excavation is followed by the specialist evidence - bone implements, brick and clay, coal, coins, clay pipes, flint, floor tiles, glass, ironwork, non-ferrous metals, pottery, and slag.177pp.

Sandham, Fran
"Traversa" is a fascinating account of the hardships and hilarity Fran Sandham experienced during his epic solo journey on foot across Africa, from the Skeleton Coast to the Indian Ocean through Namibia, Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania. Inspired by the legendary crossings of the great explorers, Sandham left the daily grind of London to undertake an extraordinary adventure. "Traversa" describes his brushes with danger in the form of lions and snakes, land mines and bandits, his 2-month battle with a syphilitic donkey, malaria and the everyday troubles that arise when walking across Africa. Underpinned with stories of the great explorers themselves - Livingstone, Stanley and Galton among others - "Traversa" is the written proof of Sandham's grit, determination and sheer obsession with the continent of Africa.

Tomasevski, Katerina
This volume maps out the response of states to human rights violations over the period 1946-1999 and offers a complete record for this period. Its starting point is that such responses are not established and accepted state practice. Traditional, if unwritten, norms of states' behaviour developed through centuries of silence and inaction; the prevalent reaction to human rights violations by another state remains the absence of any response. Furthermore, this book probes into evidence of active and passive complicity by reviewing aid to countries in which violations have been taking place and diplomatic initiatives undertaken to shield violators from public opprobrium. Since international law is generated through state practice, the book highlights the ongoing tussle between the pre-1946 heritage of silence and inaction and the 1946-1999 haphazard pattern of responses to violations. 420pp.

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.
