2 ABRAHAM, Richard KERENSKY, Alexander Alexander Kerensky : The First Love of the Revolution. First British Edition in dustjacket
Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1987, ISBN:0283994762 
ABRAHAM, Richard. Alexander Kerensky : The First Love of the Revolution. London : Sidgwick & Jackson, (1987). First British Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xii,(3),[1]-503,(1), frontispiece + 32 pp plates. Index. 8vo, yellow cloth, giltlettering to black panel on spine. "In July 1917, Alexander Kerensky succe eded Prince Lvov as premier of Russia's Provisional Government, which was estabJished after the February overthrow of Czar Nicholas II. Kerenskv was himself deposed later that year by Lenin's Bolsheviks, causing him fo flee to Paris where he became an active propagandist against the Soviet regime. In 1940, he emigrated to the United States, where he lived until his death in 1970. In this innovative biography, Richard Abraham offers a comprehensive analysis of Kerensky's politics and an intimate portrait of the man and his turbulent times. Tracing the course of Kerensky's career from obscure political trials to open, conspiraionai organizations, leadership, and finally exile, Abraham demonstrates that Kerensky was the representative and charismatic leader of the rank-and-file of the Russian intelligentsia. His prominence in 1917 was therefore no accident, but the fruit of his unremitting commitment to revolution, and of efforts which almost triggered a revolution as early as 1915. The author confirms that Kerensky played a crucial rolein forestalling any rallying of the Right before the October Revolution an d reexamines the accusation that he and his Socialist Revolutionary comrades were responsible for the horrors of the civil war. Kerenskv's belief in parliamentary democracy is evident in Abraham's concise account of his fiftyyears in exile. " (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1. Inspector Kerensky 's Career. 2.

6 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.

In what ways does this dependence i nfluence the conditions, forms, and outcomes of colective action in those small countries, including the occurrence of revolutions and the institutionalization of political systems? To answer these questions, Risto Alapuro focuses on the experience of Finland. He provides an insightful political, economic, and social history of the country since 1809. Then, using two key events - the first parliamentary elections with universal suffrage in 1907 andthe abortive revolution in 1917-1918 - he analyzes the unique factors that govern politics in a small, dependent country. Although Alapuro points to the distinctiveness of the Finnish case, he also raises questions that willopen a whole new realm of inquiry in the study of relations among small an d large countries."

'I thinkmy books are my children,' he frankly concedes. In his autobiographical wo rks, 'A Sort of Life' and 'Ways of Escape' he does, it is true, lift a corner of the veil. But we have had to wait till the publication of these uninhibited, free-ranging conversations with the young French writer Marie-Francoise Allain to discover the hidden Greene. He discusses his childhood, his travels and encounters, the genesis of his novels and plays, his religion, his inner world with a freedom and candour which overcome his habitual reticence." - from the dustjacket.

18 ALLWORTH, Edward, ed. BRZEZINSKI, Zbigniew. RAEFF, Marc. Soviet Nationality Problems. Hardcover in dustjacket.

ALLWORTH, Edward, ed. Soviet Nationality Problems. Editor: Edward Allworth.New York & London : Columbia University Press, 1971. First Printing. Pp. ( 4),[v]-xiv,(4),[1]-296. 8vo, brown cloth with copper lettered black title block to spine. "The nationality question was supposedly closed within the USSR over forty years ago. It has, however, been dramatically reopened by fresh generations of educated leaders emerging among all the major Soviet nationalities. They have made obsolete the old Russian-Communist policy of extending token recognition to nationality groups officially differentiated mainly by reference to variations in language, folklore, or costume. Economicadvance and disproportionate population increases among many nationalities have added impetus to this awakening. With self-determination the watchwor d in most other developing countries, it is evident that the Kremlin leadership now faces an array of modern problems in its old-fashioned empire. Simultaneously, social and technological changes are forcing the Soviet nationalities to reconsider courses of action crucial to their future. The present volume demonstrates the extraordinary range of nationality problems besetting the USSR. The issues are considered broadly and their possible resolutions are examined from both a contemporary and historical perspective. The authors scrutinize significant problems through the methodologies supplied by key academic disciplines.

19 ANDERSON, Frank J. Submarines, Diving and the Underwater World : A Bibliography
Archon, 1975, 
ANDERSON, Frank J., (comp.). Submarines, Diving, and the Underwater World: A Bibliography. Compiled and Edited by Frank J. Anderson. (Hamden, Connecticut) : Archon Books, 1975. First Edition. Pp (4),v-ix,(1),1-238. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “In one alphabetical sequence, over 1,500 titles (plus authors and cross-references) cover historical works, technicaltreatises, biographical memoirs, official documents, bibliographies, and f iction for all tastes and ages. One- half the entries deal with submarines in war, but as naval combat is no longer their only use, the submarine and diving in scientific research, engineering and oceanology, and recreation account for the other titles referenced. Fundamental information on topics as diverse as ocean currents, salinity, bottom mapping; underwater archaeology; physiological and psychological experimentation; drilling, mining, and construction; underwater photography, marine life, and scuba diving as a sport; are integrated here with the victories, rescues, and disasters of battle, and the salvage efforts made in times of war and peace alike.” - from the dj. “Works regarding the technological advances made in man's 'mastery' of the sea are listed; such as accounts of bathyscaphe probes, underwater drift voyages, Sealab living, and deep diving with the use of the aqualung. The ocean's contempt of man's 'mastery' is also recorded in the literature of submarine disasters and the subsequent rescue and salvage attempts. The books in this list range over a period of more than 400 years of man's attempts to use the underwater world for his own ends. […] The books listed arewritten in various languages with English-language books predominating. Th ere is a good representation of books in French and in German. A few titlesin Russian and Spanish are included, along with a token representation of Dutch, Hungarian, Japanese, Scandinavian, and Turkish language books.” – p.vii. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 70.00
