"In early 1812, as the British and the Americans were on the brink of war in North America, Fort St. Joseph was not thought to be of much importance to the British cause. It was disregarded as a useless, poorly located post. But when war was declared, the garrison at Fort St. Joseph pulled off a miracle : it captured the American Fort Mackinac, and for the remainder of the War of 1812 the British never relinquished control of the Upper Great Lakes. Built in the aftermath of the American Revolution, Fort St. Joseph played an importantrole in the defence of Canada. And yet, when the war ended, the fort was a bandoned, and almost forgotten" -- from rear cover.

It is a technical ly feasible proposition and economically sound. In a few years' time, Pariswill be only a four-hour train journey from London and cars will eb whiske d through to the Continent in well under an hour. It is, nevertheless, a vast project. In this new, comprehensive survey Deryck Abel abses himself on the extensive researches carried out from 1958 to 1960 by the Channel Tunnel Study Group. After an historical survey, covering the last 150 years, he explains the initiatives recently taken bny British, French and American interested parties. his technical survey includes teh conclusions of the geophysicists and an appraisal of engineering devices and techniques -- immersed tube, bridge, railway tunnel, road tunnel, rail-cum-road tunnel. He dealsalso with potential tunnel traffic and its conditioning factors, and final ly with the financial and legal problems involved. At a time when the Common Market and growing unity dominate European development, this book is an essential guide to a project that may well prove to be a turning point in Britain's relationship with the Continent." - from the dustjacket.

Philip Simon Coleman Lewis.

"The legal profession is one of the most discussed and least understood occupational categories in contemporary society. Are there too many lawyers wasting human resources and hampering political and economic activity, or are there too few to provide adequate representation for all? Does a career in law permit social mobility or has the profession remained a preserve of privilege? The essays in this volume offer readers inside and outside the legal system a solid sociological foundation for addressing these questions and many others." - from the dustjacket.
