"In 'A Dentist and a Gentleman', Tracey Adams examines the historical development of dentistry as a profession in Ontario from th e late nineteenth century to the end of the First World War to explore the significance of gender, particularly masculinity, in the formation of professions. Adams makes the case that gender was an important factor in the establishment of the dental profession. At one time considered a trade, dentistry gradually evolved and attained professional status. The early dentists worked to recruit, and indeed structured the professionin such a way as to recruit, middle-class white men into the professino. Gender and class divisions were drawn upon to legitimate professional roles and claims to professinoal status; by definition, a professional was a gentleman." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1.

October 21, 1996, Cleveland, Ohio). A biography of Mark Lemon (1809-1870), the firsteditor of Punch, published to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the found ing of the magazine in 1841. "A biography of Mark Lemon (1809-1870), the first Editor of Punch, has long been overdue, but Lemon has been fortunate inhis eventual biographer, Professor Arthur A. Adrian of the English Departm ent, Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, who has already shown hissympathetic understanding of the Victorian period in his life of Georgina Hogarth. Lemon is at last fully revealed as the man who was chiefly responsible for the survival of Punch in its early days, who edited the magazine for close on thirty years, and whose genial diplomacy and tact fused a miscellaneous band of writers and artists into the brotherhood of the Punch Table. Professor Adrian's researches have enabled him to present a fresh and absorbing picture of the early Punch collaborators; but he has done much morethan this. He has brought to light a representative Victorian of inexhaust ible energy and gusto, a prolific dramatist and author, an amateur actor famous for his Falstaff, the friend of Charles Dickens and Benjamin Webster, and not least a tireless philanthropist and public benefactor, whose own large family and generous temper kept him always impecunicous. It is a rich and readable study in Victoriana that Professor Adrian has given us to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of Punch in 1841." (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1.

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.
