Multilingual Matters Ltd, Avon, UK - first edition 1984 hardcover, 8 1/2" x 6", with dust jacket AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket INSCRIPTION SIGNED BY AUTHOR to ffep. Black cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine. Deals with some of the principles of pluralism in a modern Western society; starts with the concept of culture, then establishes how this comes under attack, becomes modified due to external forces, and concludes that for an ethnic group to survive and maintain its culture the group may need to establish some separate structures and institutes. In another theme, the dominant ethnic culture will try to resist such separatist tendencies in order to maintain its ideology and political hegemony. These principles are illustrated by case study material drawn from the Austraian experience, with Aborigines and with migrants.

Dillon Press Inc, Minneapolis © 1989 hardcover, 7½" x 8¾, with illustrated board covers Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Book in VERY GOOD condition Leeches are fascinating animals, simple in design yet capable of complex behaviour. They can walk like worms using both front and rear suckers, or stetch themselves into long, graceful ribbons and swim like miniature sea serpents waving slowly up and down. They sense motion, pain, light, and odor, hunt their prey, and reproduce. All of these activities are controlled by a very simple nervous system, spread the length of their body, which is not much more than a muscular tube. Leech saliva may have important medical uses.

GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket A play is heard rather than read, and a contemporary audience can be counted on to catch every allusion and to hear in full what is spoken only in part. An increased knowledge of the common currency of Elizabethan speech, the language Shakespeare 'found', will lead to a finer appreciation of the language he 'made'. This book is important in that its approach to the language of the plays is both literary and linguistic. No specialized knowledge is assumed and the material, although sometimes complex, is presented simply and without technical terms.
