For fans of the Chronicles of Narnia comes the Wildwood Chronicles, the New York Times bestselling fantasy adventure series by Colin Meloy, lead singer of the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of The Mysterious Benedict Society. This collection brings together all three novels, each replete with illustrations, including a number of gorgeous, full-color plates. Wildwood: Prue and her friend Curtis uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval—a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood. Under Wildwood: Ever since Prue returned home from the Impassable Wilderness after rescuing her brother from the malevolent Dowager Governess, life has been pretty dull. Her mind is constantly returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of Wildwood. But all is not well in that world. Prue and her friend Curtis are thrown together again. To save themselves and the lives of their friends, they must go under Wildwood. Wildwood Imperium: The fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance, as Prue and Curtis draw closer to their goal of bringing together a pair of exiled toy makers in order to reanimate a mechanical boy prince. . . .

Public Procurement In The European Union

This book provides invaluable insights to one of the most difficult areas of European integration. Public procurement represents an instrument of policy choice for governments and its regulation interacts with a variety of policies, including the promotion of competition, employment, social policy, and environmental protection. The author vividly elaborates on the in-built flexibility of the newly enacted rules and provides a codified analysis of their interpretation by the EU judiciary. Finally, considerable debate is dedicated to future dimensions of public procurement regulation in the form of public private partnerships and concessions.

The Liberalisation Of Public Procurement And Its Effects On The Common Market

First published in 1998, Public Procurement in the European Community has been considered as the most-important non-tariff barrier for the completion of the common market and its liberalisation reflects the attempts of law and policy makers to enhance competitiveness in the public sector and achieve uniform patterns of industrial efficiency. The opening-up of procurement stresses the fact that the Member States must embark upon a process of changing their public sector management ethos and adopt more market-orientated parameters (value for money, efficiency, improved risk management, market testing, outsourcing, private finance, savings) in the delivery of public services, alongside the principles of transparency and public accountability. The book is addressed to academics and researchers in the fields of law, public policy and government studies, legal practitioners, policy makers, government officials as well as industry executives. It provides a multi-disciplinary analysis of public procurement law and policy and assesses its impact on the European integration process. It investigates the implications of the opening-up of the European public markets on other legal and economic systems in the world and analyses the regulation of public purchasing as part of the emerging Economic Law of the European Union.

Imagine a time when vast helium-fueled airships took the place of aircraft, and where the hunger for adventure and exploration took the human race into stranger places than we ever imagined. The Steampunk Tarot imagines this in an alternate-reality tarot where The Technomage is king and the Punk Diva is queen. Tumble down the rabbit hole into a construction of technology, machines, retro-art and culture, full of fantastic visions in a time and place that realizes an alternate world to our own. The world of steampunk combines Victoriana, the Gothic, and early invention with a huge dash of imagination and a tremendous sense of style. The Steampunk Tarot is a world apart: a nexus of opulence, innovation and alternate world-views that is reflected in 78 scenes. The 22 major arcana cards are the actors at the heart of the machine, the deos macninae or "the gods of the machine." Acting as mediators of the Gods of the Machine are the 16 court cards who are the Legates of the Omniverse, or ambassadorial representatives of the Four Leagues, comprising all the skills that maintain the Imperium: they are the movers and shakers—the Commander, Lady, Navigator, and Messenger, or King, Queen, Knight and Page. They oversee the other 40 cards of the minor arcana, who are the elemental worlds of Airships, Engines, Submersibles and Gears, or Swords, Wands, Cups and Coins. There are still things to discover and uncover in the Steampunk Imperium. Many new methods of spreading and playing with tarot cards are included, as well as methods of life-navigation by the use of skillful questions. The Steampunk Tarot is an adventurous tarot for the discerning diviner, to be appreciated both by tarot-users and steampunk fans the world over.. Tarot Cards are not included in the Ebook Edition.
