Japanese shipping and shipbuilding in the twentieth century the writings of Peter N. Davies by Peter N Davies( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Britainʹs foremost scholar of the international shipping industry, based at the Centre for Port and Maritime History, University of Liverpool, here examines the growth and development of Japanʹs modern shipping and shipbuilding industries across a wide range of topics, through the pre-war, Pacific War and post-war periods, to the transfer of shipping technology, the role of bulk carriers and world trade and the organization and structure of the Japanese merchant navy. Prompted originally by his research into the decline of the British industries in a global context, his focus inevitably turned to Japan which in the post-war years had replaced Britain as the worldʹs largest ship operators and ship owners and remains so today

Markets for schooling : an economic analysis by Nick Adnett( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years many countries have experimented with extending the role of market forces in their state schooling systems. These changes have often produced fierce debates about their rationale and consequences, not least because of their origins in a specific political and economic philosophy. The basis of this philosophy is economic liberalism: a belief in the efficiency of the market as a rationing and allocative mechanism. This book examines the appropriateness of this belief for schooling markets. Nick Adnett and Peter Davies develop an economic analysis of schooling markets, emphasizing both the strengths and weaknesses of orthodox analyses. They explain the economic and social contexts that have generated the widespread desire to reform state schooling and develop a systematic analysis of the key policy components examining both theory and international evidence. The authors employ a unique framework based upon economic analysis that is informed by research performed by educationalists and other social scientists
