Jacket Illustration by Roy Coombs. "Fast-moving, sophisticated and surprising, Bombshell is a superbly engrossing thriller. hen David Martini, an English investigator, learns that one of his friends, an internationalal jet-engine specialist, has been killed in a bombexplosion at his Zurich villa, he feels impelled to go to Switzerland to f ind the murderer. The explosion bears a curious resemblance to a rash of bomb outrages that have, within a small time span, killed thirteen West Germans of key importance. But the possible connection seems remote until Martini's plane is blown to pieces only minutes after he steps on to Swiss soil. Martini has little to go on but a mysterious telephone call and the appearance of a very beautiful young woman— who was thought to be dead. From such apparently disconinnected clues he manages to piece together a jigsaw of crime which. as it takes shape, staggers even theie hardened Martini: it is aplot capable of menacing the whole balance of power in the Middle East. A seductive newspaper-woman and a German police official join Martini in a deadly game of search and pursuit, leading them to a masked ball in Venice and to a forbidding fortress high in the Alps where, in savage action and memorable writing, the conspiracy is prised apart." (from the dj). Raymond Harold Sawkins (1923 - 2006) was a British novelist, who mainly published under the pseudonym Colin Forbes, but also as Richard Raine, Jay Bernard and Harold English. He only published three of his first books under his own name. Very good in very good dustjacket. 90.00

RAJAGOPAL, Indhu. Hidden Academics : Contract Faculty in Canadaian Universities. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (2002). Pp (6),[vii]-xvii,(5),[3]-330,(2). Figures. Tables. Index. 8vo, white card covers with green spine, lettered in black. " Over the past two decades, continual government cutbacks to higher education have forced universities to become increasingly dependent on full- and part-time contract faculty. This situation has reinforced the functional split in the academic labour force, a split that has resulted in dramatic differences in status, compensation, career opportunities, and professional development between faculty members.The author examines the multiple ways in which contract faculty have emerg ed as an underglass in academia. She explores the identity of the part-timefaculty, the nature of their work, and their feelings about their status w ithin the university. Central to these discussions is an analysis of occupational segregation and the feminization of the part-time workforce. In the course of the study, the author also looks at full-time faculty and their perceptions of part-timers, academic administrators reasons for hiring part-timers, and the future of the university in this contract."

Kumarian Press, Sterling, VA, 2009, ISBN:9781565492691 
RALSTON, Meredith, and Edna KEEBLE. Reluctant Bedfellows : Feminism, Activism and Prostitution in the Philippines. (Sterling, VA) : Kumarian Press, (2009). First Printing. Pp [i]-xii,(2),[1]-229,(5). Index. 8vo, illustrated blue and grey card covers. "Reluctant Bedfellows outlines key facets of the authors' five year development project on sex tourism and prostitution in the Philippines, and is a powerful reflection on the raging debates taking place among feminists about the Third World. Ralston and Keeble follow the history of prostitution in former military outpost Angeles City, the women and foreign men who live by the trade and the varied organizations attempting to deal with prostitution. Making a strong call for action, the authors encounter resistance and anger from Western feminists who claim any action by Westerners in developing countries is necessarily neo-colonial and ethnocentric. Academic feminist theorizing and identity politics, the two argue, has reached the level of "analysis paralysis" where women and women's groups do not act for fear of being pejoratively labeled. This has many negativeconsequences for rights-seeking groups, as Ralston and Keeble experience f irsthand in working to bring Angeles City and Canadian women's organizations together. Both an eye-opening picture of the workings of a community seeped in sex tourism and a sharp review of current feminist theorizing, Reluctant Bedfellows offers much-needed perspective on ways to bring disputing parties together and actually promote change." - from the back cover.

"Real stories, told by real sailors of real ships are uncommon in the literature of the sea. This is the story of a real sailor, Capt. Barney Burnett. It concerns real sailing vessels and takes the reader on genuine voyages to real places. Recounting the days when young adventurous boys were able to ship on sailing vessels, the reader is taken sboard the famous four-masted bark Astral. Loading at Point Breeze, Philadelphia with case oil and black powder she is bound for the legendary port if windjammer sailors - Frisco. Around Cape Horn, birthplace of storms, we sail with Barney Burnett. Down-East skippers. hardcase mates, and seasoned salts of many Cape Horn passages are our companions for this voyage. When his ship is smashed and dismasted at Cape Horn, Barney Burnett and the crew laboriously clear away the wreckage, rerig the Astral's shattered masts, and sail on to San francisco through the teeth of the gale. Back again on the East Coast we brave bitter North Atlantic storms and fire at sea with Capt. Burnett in ice-laden schooners. Earninghis sought-after license as an Able Bodies Seaman, Burnett shipped aboard of many vessels including the well-known Sewell bark the William P. Frye ofBath, Maine. He was a sailor aboard the Dirigo, the only steel sailing shi p built in the United States." - from the dj flap. Very good in rubbed, nicked but un-clipped dustjacket. 40.00

"It has been my endeavour in the follwing chapters to prove that the Catholic citizenof our country is a good citizen, and that the ideals underlying the Catho lic school movement are in perfect accord with the ideals of every Christian patriot worthy of the name in our land today. "For my purpose, I have taken a small square from the tapestry of present-day Canadian life. I have separated the warp from the woof, by selecting a couple of typical families, and a number of characters typical of those to be readily found in any Canadian community today. To the families, and to the various characters, I have applied the acid test of adversity: bereavement, poverty and loss of reputation: while I subjected the whole sample of fabric to the gruelling test of an industrial upheaval." - from the foreword.
