The Venezuela-Guyana Border Dispute

By Jacqueline A. Braveboy-Wagner

Boulder: Westview Press. Trade Paperback. 1984. First Edition. Ex-Library: UK Ministry of Defense, Whitehall Library. Good; Near Fine other than the library markings. 349 pages. The expiration in 1982 of the Protocol of Port-of-Spain reheated a border dispute between Venezuela and Guyana that had been frozen since 1970, Almost at once, Venezuelan ultranationalists asserted the need to recover by force the Essequibo region of Guyana--two-thirds of that country--which Venezuela had long claimed. While rejecting force as a solution, the Venezuelan government has indicated that the Protocol will not be renewed, thus pushing the economically and politically vulnerable Guyana toward new and uncertain negotiations. This book describes the actors and their stake in the conflict, the capacity of each to develop the disputed region, and the implications of the Venezuelan claim for both sides. Incorporating a critical examination of the conflict's historical-legal background, Dr. Braveboy-Wagner chronicles the progress of the dispute through its various stages and describes the attempts of both sides to elicit outside support, especially from other Third World nations. Finally, she assesses the possibilities for a solution by force and by compromise and considers the potential for U.S. involvement. Contents: Territorial Nationalism and International Conflict -- Territorial Issues in Latin America and the Caribbean -- The Venezuela-Guyana Boundary Dispute: The Actors -- The Stake: The Essequibo -- History of the Dispute1 -- The Dispute: Legal Aspects -- Cooperation and Conflict: First Period, 1962-19661 -- Cooperation and Conflict: Second Period, 1966-1970 -- Maneuvering for Strength: Policies in the Interim -- A New Phase: The Reopening of the Dispute -- And Now ... Solutions -- Appendix A -- Appendix B -- Appendix C -- Appendix D

Miss Manners' Guide for the Turn-of-the-Millennium

By Judith Martin

New York: Simon & Schuster. 1990. Paperback. Very Good. Spine is square and tight. Interior is pristine. Cover is clean and crisp. Suitable for gifting. 768 pages. With the wit, tact, and wisdom that have made Miss Manners a household name, America's foremost authority on civilized behavior takes you through every aspect of your personal, professional, and social life with ease and charm. From somewhat classic queries: What do I wear to a job interview/felony trial/jacuzzi? Where does the soup spoon/seafood fork/butter knife go? To comments on truly modern phenomena: Call waiting is like a child screaming for attention, Leaky earphones are the equivalent of humming; To strictly personal do's and don'ts: Don't communicate everything in a marriage ("I had the wildest dream about a man at my office..."), Do continue the ancient custom of mealtimes, that is, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, And professional guidelines: Don't start grabbing company property after being fired, If a candy dish is on the visitor's side of a receptionist's desk, it is for visitors... Miss Manners offers consistently sound, sage advice to her Gentle Readers. With a tipping guide (including coat checks and pizza deliveries), sections devoted to both traditional and nontraditional households, details on protocol for ceremonies and celebrations, invitations and disinvitations, insights on courtship and romance, and much more, this is the comprehensive guide to a kinder, gentler, more civilized society.
