              Atlas of the World Economy

              Atlas of the World Economy (Paperback)

              By Freeman, Michael

              Originally published in 1991. The post-war period witnessed massive changes in the nature and operation of the world economy. This Atlas examines those changes under the headings of population, agriculture, energy, industry, national income, transport, trade, labour and multinati...onals. Not an atlas in the conventional sense of the term, this work is a heavily illustrated combination of diagram and description. Its approach is broad and consists of a sequence of self-contained modules which can be read independently or as part of a wider whole. One of the most prominent themes to emerge is the enormous force and influence of the capitalist economic system based in the West; a host of economic indicators demonstrates vividly the remarkable producing and consuming power of the capitalist world. Many parts of the developing world are tied in to the web of capitalist relations, but many fail to benefit adequately, as the statistics on food supply and national income demonstrate.

              Handbook of Children's Rights: Global and Multidisciplinary Perspectives (Hardback)

              While the notion of young people as individuals worthy of rights and freedoms is of relatively recent origin, over the past several decades there has been a substantial increase in both social and political commitment to children's rights, including those rights that, in the past..., were typically only accorded to adults. Contemporary thinking about children's rights is marked by a tension between the founding focus on children's protection and the emergent emphasis on children's participation and self-determination. This tension at the heart of all modern conceptualizations of children's rights precludes any simple consensus in the field, and a single, up-to-date collection that covers the major issues and policy debates that comprise the current discourse is desperately needed. The International Handbook of Children's Rights finally meets this need. The Handbook contains six sections ranging from a section on historical and contemporary perspectives of children's rights and the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC), to a section on the global perspectives on children's rights, to a section on children's own voices and perspectives. It features a fantastic mix of over 50 children's rights experts from over a dozen countries from five continents, including Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. The Handbook goes beyond conventional coverage of the CRC to delve deeply into the key issues and debates surrounding children's rights, including: * the best interests of the child * the evolving capacities of the child * states' rights versus children's rights * children's rights versus parental or family rights * children as citizens * children's rights versus children's responsibilities * the balance between protection and participation There is no volume like this one in its multidisciplinarity, its international range, its inclusion of both the qualitative and quantitative, or its steady attention to policy and practice as

              First published in 1985, this Atlas uses over 50 specially drawn maps to trace the rise and fall of the railways' fortunes, and is supported by an interesting and authoritative text. Financial and operating statistics are clearly presented in diagrammatic form and provide a wealt...h of information rarely available to the student of railway history. Freeman and Aldcroft provide the basis for a new understanding of the way in which the railways transformed Britain by the scale of their engineering works, by shrinking national space and reorganising the layouts of urban areas. Maps show the evolution of early wagon routes into the first railway routes, the frenetic activity of the `Railway Mania' years, and the consolidation of these lines into a national network. This exciting presentation of railway development will interest the enthusiast as well as the more general student of British transport history.
