MICHAEL BARKER
Gladstone and Radicalism : The Reconstruction of Liberal Policy in Britain, 1885-94
London England, The Harvester Press, 1975. First Edition, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0901759279 Ex-Library Hardback. Ex-library with ex-library markings. Slight foxing to edge. The final decade of Gladstone's political life is the most controversial and yet neglected episode in a long and distinguished career. Those years are rife with paradoxes: why should it have been Gladstone rather than Joseph Chamberlain who obsorbed radical doctrines, stood in the van of many Labour and trade uniion issues, and extinguished the control of the landed Whig aristocracy. The author examines these paradoxes, and investigates the sources both of Liberal intellectual vitality and of political weakness. He understakes the first comprehensive survey of the composite nature of the party, which drastically influenced policy formation and its political fortunes after Gladstone's death. The author also offers the first widespread survey of Liberal pressure groups, stressing the manner in which the composite nature of the party drastically influenced the formation of policy. 308 pp. Plastic protective cover.

He examines the changing face of global power and the struggle for food, water and mineral resources which we can expect in the coming lean years, and reports on the role of the multinational corporations in the world employment crisis. In addition, he discusses the politics of a world in transition, the consequences of the growing industialisation of labour worldwide, and the absurdities of scarcity in a world of plenty. And, finally, he offers positive proposals for reorganising global resource systems to meet the needs of Earth's burgeoning population. tiny crease to corner front cover.

Soviet Freedom
London England, Picador, 1988. 1st Paperback Edition, Binding: Soft Cover, Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 033030268X Paperback Paperback. This book is a book with a difference.

Their combination of novelty and experience has created an engaging yet intensely serious account. They report on one of the most momentous attempts to change society since the Russian Revolution itself in 1917. This book is a travelogue of ideas. it takes us abck to the first reports from Moscow in 1920. It glances at the role of Brezhnev and the legacy of Stalin. Often funny, it turns vivid and polemical. Filled with the many voices of our contemporaries in the East, this book is the first book to assess what it might mean for us if Gorbachev succeeds. 345 pp.

MARK BARNSLEY
In the Hands of the Enemy. Mark Barnsley's Struggle For Justice.
Great Britain, Justice For Mark Barnsley, 2001. 1st Paperback Edition, Binding: Soft Cover, Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo 1873605897 Paperback Paperback. In the Hands of the Enemy. Mark Barnsley is one of Britain's 'Secret' political prisoners, a hostage of the State. In 1994 he was attacked by 15 middle-class students, and ended up sentenced to 12 years in prison for supposedly attacking them. This was no 'accidental'miscarriage of justice, but a calculated move by the British State to 'take out' a political activist, a long standing thorn in their side. This book takes over where Beaten Up, Fitted Up, Locked Up, the first Justice for Mark Barnsley pamphlet, left off. Using articles written by friends, comrades, fellow-prisoners, and by Mark himself, this book tells the story of a political prisoner described by Prisons Minister Paul Boateng as 'a major ringleader for prisoners unrest', and exposes the depths that the State will go to deal with it's enemies. If, no matter how light-heartedly, you've ever classed yourself as an enemy of the state, you should read this before it's too late, and you too find yourself In the Hands of the Enemy. Illustrated. 92 pp.

JOHN R. BARTLETT
The Bible : Faith and Evidence. A Critical Enquiry Into the Nature of Biblical History
London England, British Museum Publications, 1990. First Edition, Binding: Cloth, Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 071411717X Harback Hardback. Price clipped to D/J. The author's masterly survey of two hundred years of biblical criticism shows that the biblical writers were not concerned with history or natural phenomena for their own sake, but with the community of Israel or with the church of Christ. While the historical books of the Bible may not, therefore, be read as 'pure' history, they were undoubtedly rooted in the events of their times. The author shows how large parts of the Old Testament were inspired by the exile to Babylon, and how without the existence of the Roman Empire an obscure Jewish sect could never have developed into the dominating religion of the Western world. The complex relationship between faith and evidence and between history and faith is the theme of this far-reaching and authoritiative work. Wth 2 maps and 3 tables. 272 pp.
