Dreaming of an escape from the rat race? This is an inspirational and practical book perfect for anyone looking to make the move – or even armchair travellers and fans of property porn. This book offers advice on what to look for in a rural property, renovation and building, as well as transport and heating, running a rural business and the pros and cons of life in the countryside. The second half of the book is organised regionally, looking at the typical kinds of home you find in each place, the sort of landscape, local landmarks and days out. Features sprinkled through the book cover everything from dealing with listed building consent and public footpaths to how grow your own food and discourage deer from eating it first. It is beautifully illustrated throughout with the beautiful vistas to be enjoyed from the homes in the countryside, and gorgeous homes – from thatched cottages to stone farmhouses, restored mills and barn conversions. Jules Hudson is well placed to talk about conservation and renovation issues too, having trained as an archaeologist and renovated his own historic house. He has been a presenter on BBC’s Escape to the Country since 2007. The programme has run on daytime BBC1 since 2002, and is now in its eighteenth series. Each week it helps urban buyers find their dream home in rural Britain by showing them three specially selected properties. Along the way the programme tells us about the landscape and history of each area.

Handbook of Commercial Policy explores three main topics that permeate the study of commercial policy. The first section presents a broad set of basic empirical facts regarding the pattern and evolution of commercial policy, with the second section investigating the crosscutting legal issues relating to the purpose and design of agreements. Final sections cover key issues of commercial policy in the modern global economy. Every chapter in the book provides coverage from the perspectives of multilateral, and where appropriate, preferential trade agreements. While most other volumes are policy-oriented, this comprehensive guide explores the ways that intellectual thinking and rigor organize research, further making frontier-level synthesis and current theoretical, and empirical, research accessible to all. Covers the research areas that are critical for understanding how the world of commercial policy has changed, especially over the last 20 years Presents the way in which research on the topic has evolved Scrutinizes the economic modeling of bargaining and legal issues Useful for examining the theory and empirics of commercial policy

Plant engineers are responsible for a wide range of industrial activities, and may work in any industry. This means that breadth of knowledge required by such professionals is so wide that previous books addressing plant engineering have either been limited to only certain subjects or cursory in their treatment of topics. The Plant Engineering Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of an enormous range of subjects which are of vital interest to the plant engineer and anyone connected with industrial operations or maintenance. This handbook is packed with indispensable information, from defining just what a Plant Engineer actually does, through selection of a suitable site for a factory and provision of basic facilities (including boilers, electrical systems, water, HVAC systems, pumping systems and floors and finishes) to issues such as lubrication, corrosion, energy conservation, maintenance and materials handling as well as environmental considerations, insurance matters and financial concerns. One of the major features of this volume is its comprehensive treatment of the maintenance management function; in addition to chapters which outline the operation of the various plant equipment there is specialist advice on how to get the most out of that equipment and its operators. This will enable the reader to reap the rewards of more efficient operations, more effective employee contributions and in turn more profitable performance from the plant and the business to which it contributes. The Editor, Keith Mobley and the team of expert contributors, have practiced at the highest levels in leading corporations across the USA, Europe and the rest of the world. Produced in association with Plant Engineering magazine, this book will be a source of information for plant engineers in any industry worldwide. * A Flagship reference work for the Plant Engineering series * Provides comprehensive coverage on an enormous range of subjects vital to plant and industrial engineer * Includes an international perspective including dual units and regulations
