The Health Services (1937). The Control of Rivers (1938). London Under Bombing (1941). Refugees in Britain (1944). The Unmarried Mother (1946). Employment of Women. The Opera in Britain (both 1948). The Football Industry. The Gramophone Record - industry and art. (both 1951). Social Security and Unemployment in Lancs (1951). Progress of the Gas Turbine (1953). The Menace of Air Pollution (1954). Graduate Wives (1954). The Cricket Industry (1956). Prospects for Nuclear Power (1959). Young Europeans in England. Housing Associations. Cartel Policies and the Common Market (all 1962). The Parliament of the European Communities (1964). [From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, whos was a member of PEP for four of its early years.] Political and Economic Planning (PEP) was a British policy think tank, formed in 1931 in response to Max Nicholson's article A National Plan for Britain published in February of that year in Gerald Barry's magazine The Week-End Review. The original members included Nicholson and Barry, the zoologist Julian Huxley, the agronomist Leonard Elmhirst, the financier Sir Basil Blackett, the civil servants Dennis Routh and Sir Henry Bunbury, the research chemist Michael Zvegintzov, and Israel Sieff, a director of Marks & Spencer. Sieff was Chairman in the 1930s, followed by Elmhirst in 1939 and by Nicholson in 1953. It was a non-governmental planning organisation financed by corporations. This prolific organisation was influential in the formation of the National Health Service, World War II and post-war planning, and the development of the African colonies. After the war it shared the offices of The Nature Conservancy in Belgrave Square, London, producing reports such as Opportunities in Industry (1957) and Advisory Committees in British Government (1960). In 1978 PEP merged with the Centre for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and became the Policy Studies Institute (PSI). [VERY HEAVY - POSTAGE WILL NEED TO BE INCREASED.]

In the Cities and Jungles of Brazil, Rambali, Paul
20 Rambali, Paul In the Cities and Jungles of Brazil
New York Henry Holt & Company 1994 0805030794 / 9780805030792 First Edition Cloth-backed boards As New As New 
Octavo, pp (4), 266, cloth-backed boards, an extremely good copy in dustwrapper, like new. [In the 1940s, Orson Welles set out to make a film about Brazil, entitled "It's All True". The footage, however, was lost. Such events have littered the progress of this nation built of dreams and misadventures. In a contemporary journey through space and time in Brazil, this book describes the tensions between colonial power structures and modern democracy, between Catholic saints and African spirits and between teeming cities and virgin rain forests. Swept along by the carnival fervour, the author of this book is lost amid contrasts, along streets where seven million urchins sleep at the feet of luxury apartment blocks - a place where TV is king. This is an informative travelogue covering the author's time spent in Brazil in the 1990s. The book covers various topics, including politics, culture, crime, energy, ecology and the many people he met while living there. This book is interesting to read both for its broad overview of the country, as well as its historical perspective on Brazil's psyche late in the 20th century.
