8 Faces of Cyprus. Doros Partasides.
The Author. 2009 0956022707 / 9780956022707 First Edition. Hardcover Fine Fine 
A very good 240 page coffee-table hardback book. Inscription dated July 2014 by the president of the Famagusta Association of Great Britain, otherwise unmarked , unworn, and could pass for new. Photographs in the category of Close-ups; Village Life; Culture; Religion; At Work; Education; and Modern Cypriots. Doros Partasides was born in Cyprus in 1944 and joined the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation's film unit as a cameraman in 1966. His work was soon acknowledged to be outstanding and imaginative and he gained a scholarship for a post-graduate diploma in Film and Television at the Royal College of Art in London in 1971. He went on to produce some of Cyprus's most memorable documentaries. During the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus Doros was on the front lines filming and photographing the trauma of his country. Soon after Doros produced his first photographic book. Cyprus 1974: Days of Disaster, which also exhibited at The Photographer's Gallery, in London. The outstanding body of work has become one of the most important documents on the tragedy of the island. In the months after the invasion Doros moved with his family to Britain and settled in London where he continued to work as a London correspondent and cameraman for CyBC. Today he covers the major news and cultural events of the Cypriot diaspora in Britain and Europe. And his photographs appear regularly in the British and European press, including the Observer, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Both Doros's film work and photography has continued to attract acclaim in Britain and Cyprus and he worked on several critical documentaries for Channel 4, most notably. The Green Line, and Unemployment by the Unemployed, and Between Two Cultures. Also Crossing the Line, Cyprus, the Holy Island. Cypriot Diaspora, and Theogonies. Doros has also produced for several photographic books, including Rebecca is a Cypriot, The Portraits of Makarias and The Green Line —The Division of Cyprus. For Doros, living away from Cyprus has made his bond to the country stronger and it has become central to the work he has produced. Portrait photography soon became his specialism as he enjoyed the candid emotions he could draw from his subjects. The pictures in Faces of Cyprus are the results of a lifetime's work. Doros lives in London with his wife and family.

Labour & Rainfed Agriculture in West Asia & North Africa, Dennis Tully.
15 Labour & Rainfed Agriculture in West Asia & North Africa Dennis Tully.
Kluwer Academic. 1990 0792306872 / 9780792306870 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good No Jacket 
A very good 299 page ex-university library hardback book with the usual stamps. Completely unworn and, apart from the library stamps, unmarked. Appears to be unused. Part One: 5 regional overview papers; Part Two: 8 country review papers. Numerous tables. Rainfed agricultural systems are characterized by high seasonal variability in labour demand, and often by low productivity. As off-farm employment opportunities have grown, farm families often combine agriculture with other activities, even living away from the farm in some cases. This poses important challenges for researchers trying to develop new, more productive agricultural technology. Will labour of appropriate skill levels be available to implement new technology? What if new technology replaces labour? This volume describes the current state of farm labour in West Asia and North Africa and its relevance to technological change.
