What's in a surname? : a journey from Abercrombie to Zwicker by David McKie( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surnames are much more than convenient identity tags; they are windows into our families pasts. Some suggest ancestral trades (Butcher, Smith, Roper) or physical appearance (Long, Brown, Thynne). Some provide clues to where we come from (McDonald, Evans, Patel). And some Rymer, Brocklebank, Stolbof offer a hint of something just a little more exotic or esoteric. All are grist to the mill for David McKie who, in What s in a Surname?, sets off on a journey around Britain to find out how such appellations have evolved and what they tell us about ourselves. En route he looks at the surname s tentative beginnings in medieval times, and the myriad routes by which particular names became established. He considers some curious byways- the rise and fall of the multi-barrel surname and the Victorian reinvention of embarrassing surnames among them. He considers whether fortune favours those whose surnames come at the beginning of the alphabet

The Election : a voters' guide by David McKie( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As well as the detailed analysis of the central areas of policy over which the Election will be fought, this book focuses on the key personalities, from the party leader to their respective spin doctors. It looks at the crucial marginal seats and reruns the 1992 result taking into account the boundary changes that have since moved voters around. It profiles the undignified scrambling in the chicken run - MPs in search of safer seats - and looks at the experience of all-women shortlists. With contributions from "The Guardian"'s political writers, it also takes a look at the MPs who won't be gracing the next parliament

Cosmopolis : prospects for world government by Danilo Zolo( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zolo criticizes this new cosmopolitan philosophy and rejects the idea of trying to eliminate international conflict through the use of centralized and superior military force. He seeks instead to develop a conception of international relations which takes account of their pluralistic, dynamic and conflictual nature. This conception moves away from the logic of hierarchical centralization, which so dominates the UN Charter, and towards the logic of a 'weak interventionism' and 'weak pacifism' which relies on self-organization, coordination and negotiation
Reflexive epistemology : the philosophical legacy of Otto Neurath by Danilo Zolo( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Danilo Zolo has written an account of Otto Neurath's epistemology which deserves careful reading by all who have studied the development of 20th century philosophy of science. Here we see the philosophical Neurath in his mature states of mind, the vigorous critic, the scientific Utopian, the pragmatic realist, the sociologist of physics and of language, the unifier and encyclopedist, always the empiricist and always the conscience of the Vienna Circle. Zolo has caught the message of Neurath's ship-at-sea in the reflexivity of language, and he has sensibly explicated the persisting threat posed by consistent conventionalism. And then Zolo beautifully articulates of the 'epistemological priority of sociology'. the provocative theme Was Neurath correct? Did he have his finger on the pulse of empiricism in the time of a genuine unity of the sciences? His friends and colleagues were unable to follow all the way with him, but Danilo Zolo has done so in this stimulating investigation of what he tellingly calls Otto Neurath's 'philosophical legacy' .
