✏The National Lottery and Its Regulation Book Summary : The introduction of a National Lottery into the United Kingdom created a unique regulatory challenge. The response to this challenge is embodied in arrangements informed not by international precedent but by privatisation policies pursued by successive Conservative governments between 1979 and 1994 when the Lottery was launched. Dr Douglas assesses the success of the Lottery's regulation against the objectives set out in the enabling legislation: the upholding of the Lottery's propriety, the protection of the players, and the maximising of the funds to be applied to the Good Causes. Lessons learned during the initial Licence period will inform the new seven year Licence from October 2001, the operator chosen for the new term, and in particular the role of the profit motive within the new arrangements.

✏Scholasticism Book Summary : "No better guide over the thousand-year period called the Middle Ages could be found than Josef Pieper. In this tour de monde medievale, he moves easily back and forth between the figures and doctrines that made medieval philosophy unique in Western thought. After reflecting on the invidious implications of the phrase "Middle Ages," Pieper turns to the fascinating personality of Boethius whose contribution to prison literature, The Consolation of Philosophy, is second only to the Bible in the number of manuscript copies. The Neo-Platonic figures - Dionysius and Eriugena - are the occasion for a discussion of negative theology. The treatment of Anselm of Canterbury's proof of God's existence involves later voices, e.g. Kant. Like other historians, Pieper is enamored of the twelfth century, which is regularly eclipsed by accounts of the thirteenth century. Pieper does justice to both. His account of the rivalry between Peter Abelard and Bernard of Clairvaux is masterful, nor does he fail to give John of Salisbury the space he deserves." "The account is broken by the gradual replacement of the synthesis of faith and reason that had been achieved in the early Middle Ages by a new one that made use of Aristotle. Pieper gives a thorough and lively account of the struggle between Aristotelains and anti-Aristotelians, and the famous condemnations that put the effort of Saint Thomas Aquinas at risk. But the Summa theologiae is regarded by Pieper as the unique achievement of the period." "If the early centuries, the medieval period, can be seen as moving toward the thirteenth and Thomas's unique achievement, subsequent centuries saw the decline of scholasticism and the appearance of harbingers of modern philosophy." "The book closes with Pieper's thoughts on the permanent philosophical and theological significance of scholasticism and the Middle Ages. Once again, wearing his learning lightly, writing with a clarity that delights, Josef Pieper has taken the field from stuffier and more extended accounts."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

✏Personality in the Workplace Book Summary : Personality influences every aspect of our behaviour. Nowhere is this more true than in the workplace. From childhood to retirement, personality helps determine how we relate to others, how we approach our work, the level of our motivation, our ambitions and life goals, and our response to rules and regulations. Effective management, effective teaching, effective leadership all depend crucially upon our understanding of personality in others and in ourselves. Personality in the Workplace covers all aspects of personality assessment, personality development, and personality growth and change in a wide range of working environments, from the classroom to the office. Drawing upon extensive research findings and the author's personal experience as a leading psychologist, it discusses the major psychological theories of personality and goes on to examine how to get the best out of people, how to respond to their individual differences, how to understand the ways in which groups influence their members, how to recognise and respond to anxiety and to other inhibiting factors in people, and how to recognise serious personality problems. With its practical approach and easy jargon-free style, the book will be immediately accessible to students of organisational psychology and education, and will prove of great help to educators, to business people, to professional men and women, and to all those who have responsibility for the performance and wellbeing of others. David Fontana is currently Visiting Professor at the University of Algarve, Portugal, Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Cardiff University and Visiting Professor at Liverpool John Moores University. He is an educational and counselling psychologist with an extensive knowledge of personality in educational and occupational contexts. Among his many books, which together have been translated into 25 languages, are Managing Stress, Managing Time, Social Skills at Work, Psychology for Teachers and Managing Classroom Behaviour.
