London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $40 AUD.

He uses different standpoints from science, economics, faith, psychology, communication, sociology, politics and development to explain why we disagree about climate change. In this way he shows that climate change, far from being simply an 'issue' or a 'threat', can act as a catalyst to revise our perception of our place in the world.

Australia's coal seam gas industry in rural New South Wales and Queensland carries unprecedented toxic environmental risks, but it could be the path to energy salvation by being cleaner than coal, safer than nuclear energy, and a complement to renewables. A balanced examination of both sides of the argument. While big oil and gas companies believe Australia could be the biggest liquid natural gas exporter in the world, farmers and environmentalists are united in their opposition to coal seam gas extraction from Australia's most fertile agricultural lands. Do coal seam gas wells poison our food resources? Does coal seam gas really aid in tackling climate change? Visiting drill sites, boardrooms, pipelines, parliamentary offices, and farm gate protests, the author demonstrates how coal seam gas extraction may be one boom that is happening too fast.

New Delhi: Manohar. 310 pp. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), pictorial cover, tables, minor edgewear. Deccan like the rest of British India had all the social economic and material ingredients for proliferation of epidemic diseases. Its population lived in unsanitary conditions, consumed contaminated water, and was crowded into wretched houses: extreme poverty, sunk in debt, and suffering from serious food shortage and malnutrition. The existence of mass poverty and its denial by the colonial state made the situation worse. This book argues that the reason for dysentery diarrhoea and bowel complaints was really malnutrition undernourishment and the general poverty of the masses. Even though the diseases were associated with poverty and malnutrition, the British imperial medical establishment continued to blindly adhere to its non-contagion miasmatic ideology. When the imperial state created hundreds of miles of roads and railways, diseases like cholera malaria, smallpox and plague proliferated everywhere. ISBN: 8173043140. Our Book No: 17457. $30 AUD.
