Small 8vo, illustrated pink and white card covers. “I think that every point of the policy is here adequately explained, and every criticism of it fully disposed of. I have dealt in a friendly spirit with those critics who entirely reject my policy, but I have not been sedulous to placate those who believe it in their hearts but reject it with their lips because they are afraid of being called"food taxers." That I propose to tax foreign food I have stated over and o ver again, because such a tax is the keystone of the system; but I also propose to draw the food supplies of this country from the greatest free-food area in the world—the British Empire as I see it in the near future.”- fromthe Preface.

Papadakis, International Law of the Sea: A Bibliography 1471; McConville and Rickaby, Shipping Business and Maritime Economics: An Annotated International Bibliography 2798.

Foreword by Myres S. McDougal.

"This book presents.the first comprehensive discussion of the problem of flags of convenience - the flags of Panama, Liberia, Honduras (Panlibhon), as well as others under which many foreign and American-owned ships are registered. The issue is of particular interest for the United States because of its effects on labor unions and defense planning.

Before embarking on his major subject, the international legal aspects of foreign registry, Mr. Boczek outlines the origin and growth of the practice, giving the present size and composition of the various fleets. He gives the reasons why ship owners have been deserting their national flags and why they have preferred to register under a particular Panlibhon flag. For American owners the principal answer in the first case is to reduce operating costs, and in the second to escape taxation.

For international law the basic issue is whether the nationality granted to ships by the Panlibhon states should be recognized by other states and be conclusive for all purposes of international law. After an analysis of this problem, the author treats, among other issues, the matterof labor jurisdiction on Panlibhon ships, the relevant advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice of 1960, the concept of 'effective U.S. control,' and the notion of 'genuine link,' as it was introduced in the International Law Commission and formulated at the 1958 Geneva Conference on the Law of the Sea in the still unratified Convention on the High Seas. In a concluding chapter, the author suggests that the solution to this highly controversial issue in international shipping should be sought on the economic and fiscal levels of the states concerned." - from the dj [not with this copy].

"The discovery of and extraction of oil and gas from beneath the cold, murky floor of Northern seas makes for one ot the most rivetting, dramatic epics of this century. The bookis an extraordinary compound of industrial courage, of scientific research and guesswork, of danger, of human wit challenging nafure for mastery, and honest-to-goodness know-how. The oil venture has cost human lives as well as milli ions of pounds. The authors, whose preliminary book (1966) established their authoritative knowledge of the project, now depict the events, includuding mishaps and perils on a giant scale, that have made success possible. The opening chapter, 'The Oilmen', paints a picture of life on an oilrig. The allocation of concessions and the block system is discussed with outlines of the various provisions made by different countries to deal withthe complex problems of taxation, nationalization etc. c. There follow sev eral general chapters about the special problems that confront oilmen when drilling underwater in the North Sea, and the general enormity of the task of extracting the oil from the sea bed - how it is located, how tests are made, the methods of drilling and constructing oil rigs, the means ot pipingoil to the mainland and the growing onshore developments needed to cope wi th this. With the recent enormous rises in OPEC oil prices, the discovery and production of oil on our doorstep has assumed new, wide-reaching importance and the consequences can leave no one's lite untouched. But even more than this, The Adventure of North Sea Oil tells a exciting and compelling story - the adventuremof Man's dramatic confrontation with the nrelenting forces of the North Sea."

COOPER, Bryan and T.F. GASKELL. The Adventure of North Sea Oil. London : Heinemann, (1976). First Edition. Pp (10),[1]-293,(1). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Foreword by Sir Eric Drake. "The discovery of and extraction of oil and gas from beneath the cold, murky floor of Northern seas makes for one ot the most rivetting, dramatic epics of this century. The bookis an extraordinary compound of industrial courage, of scientific research and guesswork, of danger, of human wit challenging nafure for mastery, and honest-to-goodness know-how. The oil venture has cost human lives as well as milli ions of pounds. The authors, whose preliminary book (1966) established their authoritative knowledge of the project, now depict the events, includuding mishaps and perils on a giant scale, that have made success possible. The opening chapter, 'The Oilmen', paints a picture of life on an oilrig. The allocation of concessions and the block system is discussed with outlines of the various provisions made by different countries to deal withthe complex problems of taxation, nationalization etc. c. There follow sev eral general chapters about the special problems that confront oilmen when drilling underwater in the North Sea, and the general enormity of the task of extracting the oil from the sea bed - how it is located, how tests are made, the methods of drilling and constructing oil rigs, the means ot pipingoil to the mainland and the growing onshore developments needed to cope wi th this. With the recent enormous rises in OPEC oil prices, the discovery and production of oil on our doorstep has assumed new, wide-reaching importance and the consequences can leave no one's lite untouched. But even more than this, The Adventure of North Sea Oil tells a exciting and compelling story - the adventuremof Man's dramatic confrontation with the nrelenting forces of the North Sea."

DOERN, G. Bruce. Red Tape, Red Flags : Regulation for the Innovation Age. The 2007 CIBC Scholar-in-Residence Program. Foreword by Allan Gregg. Ottawa : The Conference Board of Canada, 2007. First Edition. Pp [i]-xvi,[1]-196. 8vo, illustrated red and white card covers. "Making and enforcing regulations and rules is at least one-third of what governments do. This analysis ofregulation in the innovation age makes some broad comparisons between regu lation, taxation and spending, in order to discuss a strategic gap in Canada’s governance: the lack of an overall federal regulatory agenda. The author advances three central arguments: that the red-tape and red-flag issues that concern Canadians are no longer as diametrically opposed as they once were; that current federal policy is based far too much on a one-regulation-at-a-time approach; and that the federal government needs to develop a strategic approach to setting priorities for new regulations, similar to agendas for taxation and spending. He also argues that Canada should establish a Regulatory and Risk Review Commission to provide arm’s-length expert advice. The study includes case studies of the complex regulatory regimes governing three fields: pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and energy." - Conference Board of Canada. Very good. 12.50
