13 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book re-evaluates Lloyd George's part, crucial but enigmatic, in the 'lost peace' of Versailles. Each chapter examines a separate episode between 1919 and 1940. The first chapters review Lloyd George's protean role at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, his strategy of 'making Germany pay' and the part played in it by Lord Cunliffe, ex-Governor of the Bank of England; the causes and consequences of Lloyd George's abortive guarantee treaty to France; and the emergence at the conference of the phenomenon of 'Appeasement' - the 'worm in the bud'. The final chapters reassess the two episodes commonly considered most damaging to Lloyd George's reputation: his visit to Hitler in 1936 and his bids to halt World War II after the fall of Poland and France

Harris); Institut de Programmation of the Faculte des Sciences de Paris for the troisieme niveau. the courses in the Written for purely didactic purposes, this Introduction to Formal Grammars makes no pretense to any scientific originality. Large portions of it have been borrowed from the fundamental and "classic" works cited in the bibliography, such as that of M. Davis, Computability and Unsolvability [9], and those of N. Chomsky, among others Formal Properties of Grammars [6]. Ineluctably, there are numerous borrowings made during a course, and the authors would like to acknowledge their debt to J. Pitrat for his lectures given in the Centre de Linguistique Quantitative mentioned above, and to M. Nivat for his work in connection 2 and transduction
Mr Justice McCardie (1869-1933) : rebel, reformer and rogue judge by A Lentin( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the Law Journal in 1932, 'No present-day figure on the Bench is of greater interest than Mr Justice McCardie'. A High Court Judge from 1916 to 1933, no twentieth-century judge was more conspicuous or controversial. To his critics, he was a 'rogue judge' whose headline-hitting pronouncements often angered his fellow judges, called down the ire of the Churches, provoked calls in Parliament for his removal and earned a public rebuke from the Prime Minister. To his admirers, he was 'a Crusader on the Bench', a pioneer who denounced outdated laws, strove to make the law meet the needs
