THE POORING OF AMERICA Competition and the Myth of Free Trade, Batra, Dr. Ravi
241 Batra, Dr. Ravi THE POORING OF AMERICA Competition and the Myth of Free Trade
Collier Books 1994 0020165552 / 9780020165552 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Excellent condition, light corner wear, a little corner curling, and light scuffing of cover. Clean & tight, no markings. From a Reviewer: "...Batra explains clearly why free trade has not been as beneficial as advertised. Though tariff cuts are generally seen as a tonic for the economy, Batra reviews statistics which show that real wages have fallen during the same era in which tariffs have been cut. In fact, Dr. Batra makes it clear that free trade can make the real GDP rise -- while simultaneously leading to the impverishment of the working class. Like a good economist, Dr. Batra realizes that tariffs are not a cure all. He intelligently points out that domestic competition behind tariff walls has historically been more important than international competition in spurring innmovation and productivity increases. In this light, he combines recommendations for tariffs with recommendations for an aggressive anti-trust and anti-merger policy. Even more interesting is Batra's focus on trade's negative environmental effects...." (400) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall

TAMSIN, Beagle, Peter S.
250 Beagle, Peter S. TAMSIN
Roc Trade 2001 0451458206 / 9780451458209 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Clean and unmarked, small remainder marking bottom edge. Very light edge and corner wear to cover, light scratches across rear of cover. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 288 pages; Like his enchanting The Last Unicorn, Beagle's newest fantasy features characters so real they leap off his pages and into readers' souls. Tamsin Willoughby, dead some 300 years, haunts ramshackle old Stourhead Farm in Dorset, England, an ancient 700-acre estate that 13-year-old Jenny's new, English stepfather is restoring. Thoroughly American Jenny, miserable at being transplanted from New York City to rural Britain, finds a suffering kindred spirit in Tamsin, a ghost who is mourning Edric, a love she lost during Dorset's punitive Bloody Assizes under King James II. Tamsin leads Jenny through an engrossing night world inhabited by an array of British spiritsAthe Black Dog, a braggart Boggart, ominous Oakmen, the shapeshifting Pooka and a marvelous mystical army-booted Earth Mother. To save Tamsin and gentle Edric from eternal torment, Jenny faces evil personified: demonic Judge Jeffries, who sentenced hundreds of people to brutal execution during the Assizes. Slipping effortlessly between Jenny's brash 1999 lingo, the raw primeval dialect of ancient Dorset and Tamsin's exquisite Jacobean English, Beagle has created a stunning tale of good battling evil, of wonder and heartbreak and of a love able to outlast the worst vileness of the human heart. Fantasy rarely dances through the imagination in more radiant garb than this. [245-osl? ]

251 Beamish, Paul W JOINT VENTURING
Charlotte, NC Information Age Publishing 2008 1593119658 / 9781593119652 First Edition Softcover New 
New book, 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]

252 Beans, Bruce E. EAGLE'S PLUME The Struggle to Preserve the Life & Haunts of America's Bald Eagle
University of Nebraska Press 1997 080326142X / 9780803261426 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Only light wear overall - light soiling outer edge of pages, interior clean and tight, b/w illus. ; 8vo; From Publishers Weekly: Since 1970, action by government, organizations and individuals has brought the bald eagle from the brink of extinction to a measure of recovery; it is now listed as threatened instead of endangered. Environmental writer Beans here spins a captivating story of the eagle's significance in American culture and its current status in the American wilderness. In Florida, a retired Canadian banker spent more than 20 winters banding eaglets; in a New Jersey swamp, a biologist built an artificial nest to attract nesting birds; in the West, undercover agents of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service pursued a widespread traffic in eagle parts and feathers. Beans charts the eagle's comeback in New Jersey, Virginia and Florida; problems of habitat destruction and pollution remain. In Alaska, he finds the nation's greatest congregation of eagles on the Chilkat River, now a bald eagle preserve. An inspiring volume for the environmental bookshelf. (425-noto)

It's hard to think of a better format for introducing gardeners to the great variety of annuals available today and their many possibilities in the garden. " (475-noto)

Increasingly, medicine is recognizing the special relationship between pets and people as one of the most powerful weapons in fighting disease and treating chronic conditions. In fact, many doctors are routinely "prescribing" pets for their patients. In The Healing Power of Pets, Dr. Marty Becker, Good Morning America's veterinary correspondent, blends revolutionary scientific discoveries with deeply moving, personal stories of pets and their owners.

Stoddart 1997 0773758887 / 9780773758889 Softcover Very Good+ 
Stoddart edition, same ISBN. Very nice condition. Pages clean with no markings. Cover has a little scuffing and a couple small light creases. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 184 pages; "This impressive first novel is pure, scary excitement. For classmates Emily and Craig and their teacher, genteel Miss Potts, summer begins routinely enough: Emily tends her rambunctious brother, Craig decides to look up a friend, and Miss Potts closes down the classroom. On one of the desks she finds a mysterious old playbill. Soon, all three are beset by frightening premonitions. Something dangerous, something connected with the past is about to happen. As tension builds, the characters' separate stories come together, seemingly forced by the evil designs of a strange magician who appeared in the town some 50 years before. Together or alone, they must resist him. No deeply embedded meanings are uncovered by the end; this is simply a well-told story of horror. The characters are sharp, the plot is solid, and Bedard has a wonderful way of dropping vivid details, like clues, along the way. Ages 10-14. " (156osl)
