  • On the border between France and Spain, fought over for centuries, littered with castles, monasteries and tiny hilltop villages, divided by rivers and gorges, is the département of the Pyrénées-Orientales. Dominated by Canigou, the magical, mystical mountain, it is a sun-drenched land of vineyards and olive groves. Blessed with spectacular scenery, it is rich in art and history and, for walkers, cyclists, skiers, sailors, divers, swimmers, windsurfers and mountaineers, a paradise.
    Jane Mann and Kate Hareng work together to produce P.-O. Life, the quarterly Anglophone magazine of the Pyrénées-Orientales. Both are passionate about the multi-faceted region in which they have chosen to live and know it intimately. In their book they invite you to explore and enjoy this southernmost corner of France, from high Pyrenean peaks to sparkling Mediterranean sea.
    Jane has researched, photographed and collected a book-full of diverse and exciting places of interest for people of all ages and tastes to visit. Her descriptions are interspersed with Kate's useful vocabulary, French exercises, `Did-you-knows', tongue twisters and jokes.
    Lavishly illustrated, the lively blend of information and essential facts make their helpful and instructive guide a must-have for visitors and residents alike.

  • This fascinating account brings to life the history of Port-Vendres, a vital Mediterranean port from antiquity to the present day. This deep water harbour has always been a key location, close to the border between France and Spain, where the Pyrenees drop down into the Mediterranean. It has sheltered Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths and Moors, the French, the Spanish, as they traded and fought their way around the Mediterranean coast. Soldiers, sailors and fishermen have landed here for centuries, making this small town a veritable mirror of the Mediterranean world.
    Author Jane Mann has been researching and observing it all from her vantage point facing the entrance to the port, and offers a delightful and intriguing picture of a place she has come to love and call her home.

  • OECD's comprehensive review of rural policy in Italy. On average, rural regions in Italy have some of the highest GDP per capita among the OECD countries, yet unexploited potential remains. This analysis of rural Italy reveals heterogeneous economic conditions, an increasing elderly population and a diminished focus on environmental concerns. This suggests the need for a broader rural policy approach that reflects the changing demands upon rural resources and that considers other aspects of rurality including health, education and quality of life.

    OECD's review of investment policy in Zambia reviews the country's investment policy, investment promotion and facilitation, trade and competition policy, tax policy, corporate governance, policies for promoting responsible business conduct, infrastructure development and other aspects of the policy framework for investment.

  • Damages to economic assets resulting from natural disasters have soared in the past fifteen years, and climate change models forecast intensified exposure to extreme weather in many OECD countries. This OECD review of risk management policies focuses on Japan, because the geography, topography and climate of its national territory subject it to serious natural hazards, especially seismic activity and typhoons. The report looks at Japan's policies in the areas of monitoring, preparing for and responding to floods and earthquakes, seeking out and identifying good practices and areas where improvements could be made. The case studies consider several issues of particular interest to policy makers, such as how to take climate change into account for long term policy planning related to large scale floods, and Japan's unique earthquake insurance scheme for damages whose probability and impact are hard to accurately assess.

  • Discover Paris in a whole new way!

    Gaze upon the jewels at Place Vendôme, soak in the souk vibe at Marché des Enfants Rouges, kick back in the Roman Lutèce arena, eat a burger in front of Molière, dance on an open-air terrace at Quai d'Austerlitz... Uniqueness, ephemerality, limited seating and, most of all, being one who's in the know (or who claims to be) is what is most attractive to Parisians. Adopt a French attitude and hop from private terraces to funky hole-in-the-wall spots and gorgeous rotunda-shaped underground spas. When wandering through a covered passageway, give into the temptation of irresistible goodies at a neo-bistro or be seduced by rare finds at a trendsetting concept-store. The best stroll, the tastiest galette, the funkiest second-hand shop and the most glamorous hotel: Judith Ritchie found them all for you. Get off the beaten path and dive into the City of Light's effervescent whirlwind with 300 Reasons to Love Paris!

  • Quebec, founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608, became the capital of New France in 1663.

The destiny of the lower town has always been tied to the rising and falling fortunes of the port. Evidence of Quebec's evolution as a maritime city remains visible at almost every corner, waiting to be discovered by the observant eye. It is a story that is told in brick and stone.
