H.G. Wells and the culminating ape by Peter Kemp( Book )

38 editions published between 1982 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H.G. Wells's view of the world - and hence his writing - was strongly influenced by the biologist's training he received during his three years as a student at the Normal School of Science, South Kensington (now Imperial College, London). Those things which a creature needs in order for it and its species to thrive get particular attention in Wells's books. Tracing biological themes through Wells's work, as Peter Kemp does here, shows the pattern of his thought and brings to light the bizarre workings of a fascinating imagination. For the book's reissue in paperback, an afterword has been added

The new world order : report from the Danish Centre for Ethics and Law to the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs by Peter Kemp( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers the ways in which a cosmopolitan vision might constitute the ethical basis for the validity criteria of a new world order, and thus the basis for the validity of international law in a future global political reality. It examines the transformation of some of the fundamental pairs of concepts associated with the change of the concept of the state in our post-national epoch, and it analyzes the change of the perception of the legal subject and the new role of the individual person in international law after the Second World War. Finally, it raises a number of questions concerning a cosmopolitan democracy with a network of national and trans-national institutions."--
A view of the harbour / [by] Elizabeth Taylor by Elizabeth Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the faded coastal village of Newby, everyone looks out for - and in on - each other, and beneath the deceptively sleepy exterior, passions run high. Beautiful divorcee Tory is painfully involved with her neighbour, Robert, while his wife Beth, Tory's best friend, is consumed by the worlds she creates in her novels, oblivious to the relationship developing next door. Their daughter Prudence is aware, however, and is appalled by the treachery she observes. Mrs Bracey, an invalid whose grasp on life is slipping, forever peers from her window, constantly prodding her daughters for news of the outside world. And Lily Wilson, a lonely young widow, is frightened of her own home. Into their lives steps Bertram, a retired naval officer with the unfortunate capacity to inflict lasting damage while trying to do good
