The impracticability of a North-West Passage for ships, impartially considered by Peter Heywood( )

Peter Heywood (1772-1831) became known for his involvement in the 1789 mutiny aboard the Bounty. After evading a death sentence thanks to a royal pardon, he was able to advance himself in a distinguished naval career, achieving the rank of post-captain. The question of the North-West Passage, a sea route through the Arctic that would connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, remained an obsession for the British for much of the nineteenth century. Drawing on his experience as a naval hydrographer and writing under the pseudonym 'Scrutator', Heywood considers the question of the North-West Passage in this 1824 publication by surveying accounts of recent expeditions to the Arctic. While he does not dispute the existence of the much-sought route, he argues that the icy waters would not be navigable for ships. It was not until the early twentieth century that Roald Amundsen and his crew achieved the seemingly impossible

The government and politics of Spain by Paul Heywood( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Spain is virtually unrecognisable compared with what it was like when General Franco died in 1975. Spain was then very much a marginal power, condemned by nearly four decades of dictatorship to Europe's political periphery. Since 1975 the country has undergone a dramatic political transformation. Often seen as a 'model' for the former communist regimes of Eastern Europe, Spain's post-Franco transition not only established a vibrant democracy but also managed to keep in check the deep divisions which had characterised the country for centuries. Yet, although Spain's transition to democracy has been the focus of extensive political and academic analysis, far less attention has been paid to subsequent developments. This book provides the first comprehensive assessment of the government and politics of democratic Spain, setting its distinctive features in both historical and comparative context. The book pays particular attention to the devolved and regional character of Spanish government, the role of the monarchy and the constitution and the evolution of the political parties since the downfall of the dictatorship
HIV Modeling the Cost and Consequences by A. Mead Over( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three policies analyzed in this document include a minimalist policy in which the government strengthens private sector delivery, an intermediate policy of providing treatment for mothers who have AIDS and their spouses, and a generous policy of providing treatment to the poorest 40 percent of all AIDS patients. In January 2004 the Indian government adopted an AIDS financing policy which contains elements of all three of the hypothetical policies analyzed in this book. This study's projections of the total financial cost of the program and of the cost-effectiveness of the three options can help the government and its partners to plan the scale-up of the existing treatment program, to optimize the mix of components in order to improve its cost-effectiveness and to design monitoring and evaluation measures which provide feedback on program performance
