Guardians Of The Parks

RRP $332.99

Guardians of the Parks is the unique story of the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA).
Created on the heels of the National Park Service, NPCA began as a citizens' organization to keep watch over the nation's national parks. It was charged with the duty of ensuring that the National Park Service remain true to its original purpose: to preserve these wild spaces as "virtually the only places where humans could seek and find answers to questions about nature and their relation to it." This book chronicles NPCA's efforts from its founding to the present day. John Miles has given us an "inside narrative," a history of strong personalities - such as Robert Sterling Yard, Sigurd Olsen, Anthony Wayne Smith, and Paul Pritchard - all struggling to define their own organization and its goals, and also to develop a protected park system for all citizens to enjoy.
This book tells not only their story, their motives, and lasting influence, but also the story of the national park themselves.

The International Climate Change Regime

RRP $708.99

This book presents a comprehensive, authoritative and independent account of the rules, institutions and procedures governing the international climate change regime. Its detailed yet user-friendly description and analysis covers the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol, and all decisions taken by the Conference of the Parties up to 2003, including the landmark Marrakesh Accords. Mitigation commitments, adaptation, the flexibility mechanisms, reporting and review, compliance, education and public awareness, technology transfer, financial assistance and climate research are just some of the areas that are reviewed. The book also explains how the regime works, including a discussion of its political coalitions, institutional structure, negotiation process, administrative base, and linkages with other international regimes. In short, this book is the only current work that covers all areas of the climate change regime in such depth, yet in such a uniquely accessible and objective way.


Frozen Sparks

RRP $13.99

A collection of verses which describes the feelings of a young woman, who is tossed in the whirlwind of unrequited feelings, loss, rebellion and depression. Despite everything, she feels closer to home when she writes about the man she is in love with, who is blasphemously beautiful to her. Her thought processes develop as the poems advance, and eventually ends with a promise of a new beginning, bittersweet aftertastes and approaching happiness.
