JAY, PETER
Road to Riches or the Wealth of Man
London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson. 2000, First. (ISBN: 0297643673). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped.xv + 383 pages. 68 illustrations. The book tells the story of the rise and the fall of whole economies and nations, the ascent - and frequent pauses - of mankind as the only economic animal, as producer, consumer and accumulator of wealth. It tells how we have grown from being one species among many on earth, to regard ourselves as the master species. It is a gripping story of triumph and iniquity, posing a stupendous puzzle: How and why did it happen? What were the decisive moments and advances? Why was progress so uneven? Was there a single recipe for progress? Have we finally inherited the earth? Peter Jay reaches beyond the narrow limit of economics for the answers that can explain the wealth of man and the road to riches. 14. Fine/Fine.

PEARCE, JOSEPH
Small Is Still Beautiful
London, Harper Collins. 2001, First Edition. (ISBN: 0002740907). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. A Fine uninscribed copy with Fine price clipped dustjacket. Foreword by Barbara Wood, daughter of E.F. Schumacher. E.F. Schumacher wrote his timely warning that the ramapant consumerism of the 1970's would result in gross economic inefficiency, pollution and inhumane working conditions. The author develops Schumacher's legacy whilst taking up the themes of economic and political 'smallness' for our day and continues Schumacher's clarion cry against the idolatry of giantism by highlighting the beauty of smallness. Pearce recognises that our ever increasing rate of global consumption is depleting non-renewable natural materials at an alarming rate and encourages us to ask the difficult questions and make the hard decisions. Will we continue on our present path, our foot on the accelerator, in pursuit of the bigger and faster and ultimate disaster or will we think again. 13. Fine/Fine.
