A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped.xv + 383 pages. 68 illustrations.

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.

London Harper Collins 2001 0002740907 / 9780002740906 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" 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.

Politics and the Pound  -  The Conservatives' Struggle with Sterling, Stephens, Philip
16 Stephens, Philip Politics and the Pound - The Conservatives' Struggle with Sterling
London Macmillan 1996 0333632966 / 9780333632963 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. xviii + 364 pages. The pound has haunted Britain's politicians for most of the 20th century, from Churchill's ill-judged return to the gold standard in 1925 through Harold Wilson's devaluation in 1967 to John Major's Black Wednesday, and it has been a symbol alternately of national pride and national decline. The malign neglect of the first Thatcher term brought the unprecedented surge in sterling's value which triggered the deepest recession for 50 years. Nigel Lawson's conversion to the European Exchange Rate Mechanism foreshadowed a fatal clash between chancellor and prime minister which first destroyed her cabinet and then her premiership, and an economic miracle dissolved into a mirage. Major's decision to join the ERM led in turn to an entanglement between the pound and Europe and ended with the humiliation of Black Wednesday. Financial times associate editor Philip Stephens provides the first authoritataive account of this explosive mix of economics and politics.
