Michael Kitson 1
R547 R424 Discovery Miles 4 240 Save R123 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Veganism has recently moved from fad to mainstream, and in the last year many more men have realised that it is possible to carry on enjoying the food they love to eat on a vegan diet. The surge in popularity is a national phenomenon, with plant-based food festivals and businesses booming from Bristol to Inverness, restaurants featuring new vegan menus, and the huge success of Veganuary, with 168,000 people signing up in January 2018. The vegan demographic has also changed, with many more young people deciding that they no longer want to eat or use any kind of animal product, and showbiz magazines and websites and full of lists of vegan celebrities and sporting heroes arguing that it is possible to get enough protein and be happy in a world without meat. Focusing mainly on food, what to eat, what to avoid, and staying fit and well fed, this book is full of delicious recipes and cooking ideas for the modern vegan man. It also explains the wider vegan world, covering the ethical background and core principles of this growing global, multi-faceted movement. Each aspect of living a happy and healthy vegan life is explored, what the arguments are, what benefits vegan lifestyles have on the natural world, and how to avoid ingesting or exploiting any kind of animal product - from what you wear, drive or ride, to cleaning products, toiletries and sports equipment. Most importantly, the book is packed with recipes men will love to cook, creating fabulously tasty and tempting dishes that avoid all animal products without losing anything on flavour, zest and satisfaction. Learn how to make nutrition-packed breakfasts, amazing main courses, and satisfying sweet treats, using an impressive variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, oils and pulses. Adding a more male perspective to what has in recent years been a female dominated movement, this book is aimed at all those interested in living vegan, whether experimenting, switching or committing.

Rembrandt (Paperback, 3 Revised Edition): Michael Kitson Rembrandt (Paperback, 3 Revised Edition)
Michael Kitson
R182 R147 Discovery Miles 1 470 Save R35 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-69) transcends any period or social milieu: he is one of the world's great masters and though his works reflect the confidence of newly independent Holland, his vision extends far beyond these narrow confines. A deeply perceptive artist (his many self-portraits show his continued interest in the study of human nature), he sought to go beyond superficialities, to endow his biblical paintings, historical narratives, genre scenes and portraits with psychological depths hitherto unknown in Dutch painting. Impatient with conventionally stiffly posed group portraits, he produced such masterpieces as The Night Watch, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Tulp and the Staal Meesters, while his studies of Saskia, his wife, and his mistress Hendrickje Stoffels reveal his deeply sensuous, compassionate nature. Michael Kitson has revised his highly successful book in the light of the most recent scholarship on Rembrandt, making this the ideal survey of the career of a much-loved genius.

Protectionism and Economic Revival - The British Inter-war Economy (Paperback): Michael Kitson, Solomos Solomou Protectionism and Economic Revival - The British Inter-war Economy (Paperback)
Michael Kitson, Solomos Solomou
R833 Discovery Miles 8 330 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The impact of protectionism is currently a contentious policy issue. This book evaluates the effects of protectionism on the British inter-war economy. In contrast to most studies of the period and the conclusions of orthodox economic theory, Kitson and Solomou show that the introduction of the General Tariff in 1932 provided a substantial stimulus to the domestic economy--a stimulus that can help to explain the trend improvement in British economic growth in the 1930s. The authors show that the tariff made domestic products more competitive, encouraging import substitution and macroeconomic expansion. The empirical evidence is examined at two levels. First, a sectoral study shows that the newly protected sector of the 1930s saw an improvement in performance following the introduction of the tariff. Secondly, the large fall in manufacturing imports generated favorable effects on macroeconomic performance by helping to reduce the import propensity of the economy. The policy implication of this study is that trade policies should be constructed in the context of prevailing economic conditions and not solely with reference to sometimes inappropriate theoretical perspectives.

This volume contains twenty essays and reviews, chiefly concerning Claude Lorrain, but also including one on Gaspard Dughet, two on Nicolas Poussin (including the latest piece, an authoritative review of the 1994 Poussin exhibition), and a comparison of Lorrain and Poussin in landscape. The writings range considerably in scale and scope, from closely focused analyses of one or two paintings, or a group of drawings, to reviews of exhibitions and catalogues raisonnes, and the introduction to the 1969 Hayward Gallery exhibition, which introduced a wider public to an appreciation of Claude and ideal landscape. There is an introduction by Dr. Claire Pace covering the work of Professor Kitson, and a comprehensive index.

Regional Competitiveness (Paperback): Ron Martin, Michael Kitson, Peter Tyler Regional Competitiveness (Paperback)
Ron Martin, Michael Kitson, Peter Tyler
R840 Discovery Miles 8 400 Special order

There is now a wide spread interest in regions as a key focus in the organization and governance of economic growth and wealth creation. This important book considers the factors that influence and shape the competitive performance of regions.

This is not just an issue of academic interest and debate, but also of increasing policy deliberation and action. However, as the readings in this book make clear, the very idea of regional competitiveness is itself complex and contentious. Many academics and policy makers have used the concept without fully considering what is meant by the term and how it can be measured. Policy formulation has tended to rush ahead of understanding and analysis, and the purpose of this book is to close this important gap in understanding.

This book was previously published as a special issue of Regional Studies.
