Very large hardcover in excellent condition, clean and unmarked other than one very small tear to spine bottom. Jacket has light scuffing, light scratches, a little edge crinkling but no tears. Spectacular photos throughout. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 252 pages; Animals of Africa captures the unique beauty of the African natural world in 200 full-color photographs by four top wildlife photographers: Jim Brandenburg, Mitsuaki Iwago, Frans Lanting, and Michael Nichols. Against the backdrop of an exquisite landscape that ranges from desert scrub land to the savanna, the mountains, and rainforests, their extraordinary images feature the hunters, grazers, waterbirds, and strange menagerie of Madagascar’s isolated forgotten Eden. This exciting volume features up-close images of fearsome lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas; the gentle grazers such as wildebeests, zebras, deer, gazelles, and giraffes; the giant “untouchables” such as elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalos; as well as birds from flamingoes to vultures, water animals such as hippos and crocodiles, and of course the chimps and great apes. Animals of Africa brings its wonder to the armchair traveler in dozens of striking images. These powerful photographs will deepen your appreciation of the natural world, of the fragility and balance of life, and also bring to light how imperative it is to preserve these African animals and the wildernesses in which they live.

THE PLAYS OF MIRACLE & WONDER  Ipi Zombi? / iMumbo Jumbo / The Prophet, Bailey, Brett

South Africa Double Storey Books & Juta Academic 2003 1919930205 / 9781919930206 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
2003 first edition. Double Storey Books, South Africa. Pages tight and clean other than approx. 4 pages have a small amount of underling/writing. Cover has light scuffing and light edgewear. Illustrated in colour. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 200 pages; From a truly groundbreaking voice in African theater, these three plays have disturbed and transported audiences in South Africa and abroad with their depictions of some uncomfortable episodes in South African history. From witch hunts in Kokstad and the saga of King Hintsa’s skull to the prophecies of Nongqawuse and the ensuing cattle-killing crisis, these plays touch on shared neuroses and fears, blending the tragic and transcendent with the farcical. With accompanying essays and working notes, the playwright gives background and insight into each of the productions and outlines his own artistic development and vision. This richly designed book re-creates something of the funky energy, haunting magic, and colorful imagery of the plays themselves. [597]

JOINT VENTURING, Beamish, Paul W
10 Beamish, Paul W JOINT VENTURING
Charlotte, NC Information Age Publishing 2008 1593119658 / 9781593119652 First Edition Softcover New 
New book, clean and tight, no markings. 167 pages. B/w illustrations. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 167 pages; This short, reader-friendly book is about best practice in joint ventures: the factors and processes which lead to success. Every year, corporations establish thousands of joint ventures (JVs) , investing hundreds of billions of dollars. In fact, between 25% and 40% of all foreign investments take place via equity JVs. The use of JVs and strategic alliances has been rapidly growing. I've worked as a joint venture facilitator for Fortune 500 and other corporations for many years. The senior executives in these organizations often noted that the decision-making format I used with them would make a great book. This is it. The key purpose of the book is to demonstrate that joint ventures can work. They require however an open mind, and the willingness to work through a series of questions I provide. These relate to: testing the strategic logic; partnership and fit; shape and design; and operating the JV. Contrary to the perceptions of some, JVs can be just as profitable and survive just as long as wholly owned subsidiaries. They can in fact be effectively managed, and they are not going to cause a firm to lose its proprietary technology. Partnerships can work extremely well, and often, placing less emphasis on "control" is the way to go. If one is willing to acknowledge and respect that someone else (here a partner) has much to contribute, a stronger enterprise can result. True JVs can result in more stable and sustainable business, benefiting all partners, in whatever country they are located. The format of the book is intentionally conversational. It uses the Socratic method (question, answer, question, answer) which works so effectively in a case study classroom. Here the "classroom" is several business class seats on an international flight. This book is written for practicing managers and executives. Those contemplating the formation of a JV and those currently engaged in JVs will see improvement in the duration and performance of their collaborative ventures by following the recommended actions. A second audience is business schools and academics. The book is ideal for MBA, executive MBA and non-degree executive education courses or modules focused on JVs, alliances, cooperative strategies, etc. (*lower shipping options avail to some locations) [275-osl]

Black Looks,  Race and Representation, Bell Hooks
11 Bell Hooks Black Looks, Race and Representation
Toronto Between the Lines Press 1992 0921284616 / 9780921284611 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Between the Lines Press, 1992. Hardcover, NO dustjacket. Black cloth hardcover book in very nice condition. Pages clean and intact, with no markings. Cover is clean, with slight bumping at corners. ; 8vo; 200 pages; In the critical essays collected in Black Looks, bell hooks interrogates old narratives and argues for alternative ways to look at blackness, black subjectivity, and whiteness. Her focus is on spectatorship—in particular, the way blackness and black people are experienced in literature, music, television, and especially film—and her aim is to create a radical intervention into the way we talk about race and representation. As she describes: "the essays in Black Looks are meant to challenge and unsettle, to disrupt and subvert." As students, scholars, activists, intellectuals, and any other readers who have engaged with the book since its original release in 1992 can attest, that's exactly what these pieces do.
