"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country."

Pp (4),v-xv,(1),1- 224. 8vo, red cardcovers. No.36 in the New Perspectives on Language and Education series. "In the complex, multilingual societies of the 21st century, codeswitching is an everyday occurrence, and yet the use of students' first language in the English language classroom has been consistently discouraged by teachers and educational policy-makers. This volume begins by examining current theoretical work on codeswitching and then proceeds to examine the convergence and divergence between university language teachers' beliefs about codeswitching and their classroom practice. Each chapter investigates the extent of, and motivations for, codeswitching in one or two particular contexts, and the interactive and pedagogical functions for which alternative languages are used. Many teachers, and policy-makers, in schools as well as universities, may rethink existing 'Englishonly' policies in the light of the findings reported in this book."- from rear cover.

"This succinct, technical reference of coastal-zone resource management is aimed both at students taking courses in coastal management or marine conservation and practitioners in these fields.

In response to a worldwide demand, Coastal Seas deals mostly with methodology and provides practitioners, scholars and students with the ideas, tools, materials and strategies needed to manage coastal resources and shoreline development.

Although tropical developing nations have the greatest need for this book, the principles are universal and will be of interest and relevance to all. " - from the rear cover.

"The life of Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, is one of those human romances which illumine and enrich the history of the British Empire. His youth was cramped by poverty. At fourteen he was already hard at work to help his invalid mother. But at twenty-four he got his chance and made the most of it. Appointed to a post in the East India Company's service in Malaya, he not only earned quick promotion by his industry and ability but he also acquired an exceptionalknowledge of the Malay people -- their history and language and life. He b ecame deeply attached to them and dreamed of their being rescued some day from anarchy and lawlessness and obtaining peace and justice and prosperity under British protection. This dream seemed to be beginning to materialise when, as an incident of the world-war with Napoleon, he accompanied the expedition which invaded and occupied Java, and was chosen to be its first British governor. Its retrocession to the Dutch at the end of the war was a bitter disappointment, aggravated by domestic bereavement and physical exhaustion. But his spirit was unbroken, and, a few years later, he was given a second chance. Commissioned to find a site for a new British trading-post, he selected Singapore -- then a derelict unknown village, now one of the greatest ports and strategic bases in the world. To-day Singapore and British Malaya are Raffles' dream come true." - from the dustjacket. Very good in nicked, rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 27.00

Financial Times Management Reports.

Enhanced-oil-recovery techniques allow a higher proportion of crude oil to be produced and will stretch recoverable world oil resources. Examples of successful thermal, chemical, and miscible techniques are already available in oilfield pilot projects and are ready for commercialization. The major topics covered in the report are world oil supply and demand; the formulae for calculating recoverable reserves and for determining the efficiency of the three techniques; and a geographic overview of enhanced oil recovery. A Delphi-type poll of industry experts summarizes industry's view in terms of prices, organizational barriers, and policies and offers a checklist of steps that need to be taken if enhanced recovery is to fulfill its potential.

Contents :
1. The Need for an Energy Bridge : Supply and Demand;
Scope for Change;
Making the Most of Oil Resources;
Prospects for Enhancing Production;
Oil Resource Base;
The End in Sight?;
Unconventional Oil;
Long-term Viewpoint of Potential Oil Supply and Demand;

FETHERLING, Douglas. Running Away to Sea : Round the World on a Tramp Freighter. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (1998). First Printing. Pp (10),1-245,(1). A few illustrations in the text. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Douglas George Fetherling (b. January 1, 1949, Wheeling, West Virginia). "At a low point in his life, the prolific Canadian writer Douglas Fetherling sought to clear his head by taking the kind of trip that many of us dream about - going round the world on one of the last of the tramp freighters. The four-month voyage carried him (and a handful of other travellers) some thirty thousand nautical miles, from Europe via the Panama Canal to the South Pacific, with a future as fragile as its past is romantic. There the ship, a converted Russian ice-breaker renamed The Pride of Great Yarmouth, traded at some of the most fabled - and some of the most disreputable - ports in the southern hemisphere. The return voyage, by way of Singapore, Indonesia, the Indian Ocean, and Suez, was just as memorable. Written with dash, colour, and droll humour, Fetherlings narrative is peopled by a rich cast of characters, from the Foreign Legionnaires of French Polynesia to the raskol gangs of Papua New Guinea. Most memorable perhaps are the men and women who continue to follow the millennia-old life of the sea. This is the world of Ordinaries and Able-Bodied Seamen, but also of hopeful young officer cadets to say nothing of, in this particular instance, a temperamental cook, a computer genius with a nose-ring, and a young Russian woman who believes herself the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. Fetherling captures the reality of life aboard a working cargo ship the boredom, the seclusion, the differences of nationality and culture that isolation and cramped quarters seem to exaggerate. But he also describes how the routine of loneliness or tranquillity is punctuated by moments of near-panic shipboard fires, furniture-smashing storms, even a brush with pirates in the Strait of Malacca. Running Away to Sea is literary travel-writing in the grand old tradition." - from the dj, which also carries a high recommendation from Bill Bryson. Chapters : 1. Taking Ship; 2. Panama; 3. Somewhere in the Pacific; 4. Polynesia; 5. Shipmates; 6. Suva to Santo; 7. Papua New Guinea: Rats and Butterfies; 8. Papua New Guinea: Volcanoes and Raskols; 9.
