5 AKAHA, Tsuneo Japan in Global Ocean Politics. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Hawaii Press , Honolulu, 1985, ISBN:0824808983 
AKAHA, Tsuneo . Japan in Global Ocean Politics. Honolulu : University of Hawaii Press and Law of the Sea Institute, University of Hawaii, (1985). First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xii,[1]-224,(4). Text maps. 8vo, blue cloth. "National enclosure of the world's oceans is one of the most important global trends to have emerged during the second half of the twentieth century. Awareness of the real and potential value of the ocean and its resources and recognition of the growing s carcity of natural resources on land have promptednation-states to claim and exert control over wide areas of the hitherto u nclaimed oceans and their riches. Japan in Global Ocean Politics is a detailed study of a mighty ocean nation's reaction to the demise of the traditional ocean regime based on the principle of freedom of the seas and its adjustment to the emergence of a new order characterized by national ocean enclosure. Japan's traditional maritime interests, particularly shipping and fishing, defined the country's role in global ocean politics until the middleof the 1970s; its posture was reactive, and even recalcitrant, on most law of the sea issues. In 1976-1977 Japan changed its policy in favor of accep ting extended coastal jurisdiction for others as well as for itself. The author explains why and intricately describes the process of policy making that took place amid competing domestic and interna tional pressures. In accommodating its diplomatic, economic, and security interests Japan imposed a formidable task on its public and private sectors, one that was accomplished with innovative policy adjustments, particularly in the manner in which the territorial sea limit and fishery jurisdiction were extended." Chapters : 1. The International Political Economy of Ocean Management and Japan; 2. The First and Second United Nations Conferences on the Law of the Sea; 3. Japan's Fight against the Proliferation of Expansionist Coastal States' Claims; 4. The United Nations Seabed Committee; 5. The Caracas-to-Geneva Session of the Third UNCLOS; 6.

Volume 27 in the Norwegian Forei gn Policy Studies series. "Norway is the only one of the four applicants of1970 which rejected EEC membership by a popular referendum. The decision w ill have far-reaching consequences both for Norway and the EEC. This book is an attempt to understand that decision of 1972 and to examine its effectson Norwegian-EEC relations in the following five years. The first part cov ers the period up to September 1972. Beginning with a description of the Norwegian economy, politics and foreign policy in 1969, it analyses post-war Norwegian attitudes towards Europe and European integration and the way theNordek debate of 1968-70 already revealed many of the themes and political positions of the subsequent referendum campaign. It then charts the intera cting course of domestic politics, membership negotiations and referendum campaign. [...] Part two covers the years 1972-77, its chapters describing in turn how the immediate post-referendum years of fast rising living standards and oil exploitation cushioned Norwegians economicall and psychologically from the full effects of their decision; how the Labour and Conservativeparties, defeated over the EEC, went on to win the post-referendum struggl e for control of the Political system; Norway';s relations with the EEC in fisheries questions, the main source of friction in these years; and the reasons why Labour's 'active European policy' failed to live up to its name."- from the rear cover.

Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1972, ISBN:0870703843 
AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.). Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements andProblems of Italian Design. New York : The Museum of Modern Art, in collab oration with Centro Di, Florence, (April 1972). First Edition. Pp (10),[11]-430,(2). With 520 illustrations (124 in color). 4to, white paper covered boards, black lettering to spine, in a printed glassine dustjacket with fivepieces of cut-out objects illustrative of Italian design inserted into jac ket as issued. "During the last decade, the emergence of Italy as the dominant force in design has had a profound influence in Europe and the Americas. This phenomenon is important not only becasue of the high quality and diversity of the forms produced, but also because it has generated a lively debate on the sociocultural implications of product design, raising questionsof vital concern to designers throughout the world. For many designers, th e aesthetic quality of individual objects intended for private consumption has become irrelevant in the face of such pressing problems as poverty, urban decay, and the pollution of the environment now encountered in all industrialized countries. Consequently, they are increasingly shifting the focusof their attention from the well-designed object to man's total environmen t, seeing the designer's function as one that can mold patterns of behaviorby creating new settings for freeer, mor adaptable life styles. [...] This publication, issued in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum o f Modern Art, is the first to deal comprehensively with these challenging developments. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past ten years have been selceted for the show and all are reproduced in color or black-and-white, as are the dozen environments by well-known Italian designers speciallycommissioned for the occasion."

Verso, London / New York, 2007, ISBN:9781844671045 
ARRIGHI, Giovanni. Adam Smith in Beijing : Lineages of the Twenty-First Century. London / New York : Verso, (2007). First Printing. Pp (10),[xi]-xiii,(1),[1]-418. Index. 8vo, tan paper covered boards, red lettering to spine. "In the late eighteenth century, the political economist Adam Smith predicted an eventual equalization of power between the conquering West and the conquered non-West. In this magisterial new work, Giovanni Arrighi shows how China’s extraordinary rise invites us to read The Wealth of Nations in a radically different way than is usually done. He examines how the recent US attempt to bring into existence the first truly global empire in world history was conceived in order to counter China’s spectacular economic success of the 1990s, and how the US’s disastrous failure in Iraq has made the People’s Republic of China the true winner of the US War on Terror. In the 21st century, China may well become again the kind of noncapitalist market economy that Smith described, under totally different domestic and world-historical conditions." (from the dj).

(BALDWIN, Stanley). BELL, Stuart. Baldwin and the Conservative Party : The Crisis of 1929-1931. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, 1988. First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xix,(1),1-266,(2). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The Conservative Party was the dominant political force in Britain between the two world wars. This book examines one of the most serious crises in its history. Whilst in opposition during the second Labour government (1929-1931) accumulated tensions within the Conservative Party erupted into the open. Defeat at the polls, disputes over key areas of domestic and imperial policy and growing anxieties about the weakness of the leader of the Party, Stanley Baldwin, combined to produce an explosive situation. At the same time Beaverbrook and Rothermere, the leading press barons, mounted their 'Empire Crusade' -- a public campaign to force the Party to change both policy and leader. The book is based on a wide range of primary sources -- including the private papers of the party leadership and backbench MPs and all traceable surviving records of the local constituency organisations -- permitting an analysis of a fullness and complexity not previously possible. Dr Ball provides a fresh explanation of the crisis and of the character and strategy of Stanley Baldwin, the most important politician ofthe interwar years. He sheds new light on the rise of Neville Chamberlain and the departure of Winston Churchill into the political wilderness. Two further themes are the role of the press and impact of the slump on British politics. Finally Dr Ball reassesses the controversial role of the Conservatives in the most important political event between the wars -- the collapse of the Labour ministry and the formation of the National Government in August 1931. This new analysis of a crisis which contributed to the reconstruction of modern British political life represents essential reading for historians of politics and of the press, and for political scientists." - fromthe dustjacket.

Fairleigh Dickinson University Prsss / Associaed University Presses, Madison and Teaneck / London, 2003, ISBN:0838639585 
BARNES, Celia. Native American Power in the United States, 1783-1795. Madison and Teaneck : Fairleigh Dickinson University Prsss / Londo : Associaed University Presses, (2993). First Edition. Pp (6),7-250,(6). Illstrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "As the United States took its first faltering steps as an independent reoublic. the Native Americans who occupied vast areas of the newly fonned nation devised slrategies to defend their own independence. The implications of the diverse and pervasive power of Native Americans during this period were tar-reaching. The United States was based on a precarious political structure, its central government facing widespread distrust and even hostility, and its integrity threatened by both foreign interference and domestic fragmentation. Its inability to resolve the problems in the West served to undermine its already tenuous credibility, and the Native American presence thus contributed significantly to the fragility of tne union. This study shows the Native Americansto have influenced the development of the United States so widely as to de serve a central place in early United States history. An evaluation of the complex function and operation of Native American power within Indian groups and their relations with outsiders forms an important part of this study.The diverse and fluid nature of Indian power and authority, so difficult f or Europeans to grasp, informed the Native Americans' experience and their relationship with the United States. Within the independent villages, each person followed his own path in accordance with the cultural imperative of individual autonomy. In the struggle to preserve their lands and independence, many leaders and villages adopted strategies based on local needs, while others sought to create a pan-Indian movement to achieve their goal. Attempts to strengthen their crumbling cultural framework also reflected the diversity of Indian groups. For many, a reconnection with their spritual protectors and denunciation of all white ways was the only effective means of regaining their earthly power, and for militant warriors this included consolidation of their physical force. Many others, however, believed their onlychance for survival as an indenendent people was through negotiation and a ccommodation backed by a united Indian diolomatic front. The resulting chaos characterized this violent period of Indian-white relations. Through an examination of archival collections held in the U.S.A., Canada, and Britain,this study shows how the Indian "problem" intensified the struggle to legi timize federal auinonty, establish national institutions, and create a cohesive nation. Certainly, the national government's inability to conquer the Indians, by either fforce or negotiation, exposed its weakness, but the issue also threw up fundamental questions about the central government's role,capability, and credibility. With scarcely enough funds to function, much less exert its authority, unable to secure the frontiers with settlements and orderly civil government or protect its citizens from Indian attack, Congress struggled to command the respect of its citizens, and many in the West contemplaed separation from the union. The alliance of Native Americans with Britain and Spain, both of which occupied United States territory with impunity, added yet another dimension to the power wielded by the Native American groups. Overall, the study reveals the Native Americans to have beenmore than mere passive victims of their fate, but rather significant polit ical players in early United states history." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. A Collision of Cultures. 2. In Pursuit of Land and Liberty. 3. The British Connection. 4. The Spanish Connection. 5. Indian Victory in the Northwest. 6. The Southwest Frontier. 7. The Collapse of Indian Resistance in the Northwest. Conclusion. Very good in dustjacket. 45.00
