This book explores the latent and sometimes overt undercurrents that have shaped the judicial history of Cameroon since the United Nations Trusteeship period. It is an insightful account by a critical observer privileged to serve as Director of Public Prosecutions and a judge in a post-independence context characterized by dual and often conflictual legal systems inspired by French and English colonialism. Justice Nyo'Wakai demonstrates how the conflict of judicial concepts, procedures and usages have led to the Francophone judicial system trying to impose itself on the Anglophone judicial system in Cameroon. Often reduced to toothless bulldogs by new constitutional dispensations informed largely by the French colonial legacy and Francophone realities, Anglophones have bemoaned the independence of the Judiciary identified with their Anglo-Saxon heritage. In the face of such domination and the highhandedness of the Executive, only mature cool headedness and the ability to bend over backwards on the part of Anglophone legal practitioners have contained the explosive situation and allowed for a gradual evolution of the Judicial System in Cameroon.

For more than thirty-five years, the Detail & Scale Series of aviation publications was considered one of the best references on military aircraft available. Focusing on the physical details of the aircraft, such as cockpits, engines, avionics and electronics, armament, landing gear, and more, each of the sixty-nine titles in the series provided the most detailed look at a wide variety of aircraft dating from World War II to the present. The “F3H Demon in Detail & Scale” continues the well-established and respected Detail & Scale format as the first digital title in this series. It covers McDonnell’s Demon, a jet fighter flown by the U. S. Navy in the 1950s and 1960s, in extensive detail. There are more than 340 photographs, and of these, more than 140 are photographs of details covering the Demon inside and out. All of the detail photos are in color, and almost all were taken specifically for this publication. The 340+ photographs are supplemented with more than 50 art profiles and illustrations, all of which were created just for this new title in the Detail & Scale Series. Every squadron to fly the Demon is covered along with information about their deployments aboard aircraft carriers of the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets. As with all books in the Detail & Scale Series, a special section is provided for scale modelers that reviews the model kits available of the Demon.

In Made for Each Other: A Symbiosis of Birds and Pines, Ronald M. Lanner details for the first time this fascinating relationship between wingless-seeded pine trees and seed-dispersing Corvids (nutcrackers and jays), showing how mutualism can drive not only each others' evolution, but affect the ecology of many other members of the surrounding ecosystem as well. In a complex process of mutual dependency, myriad species of both plants and animals - from Engelmann spruce, elk, and moose to red squirrels, bear, and fungi - advance the overall life cycle by taking advantage of the ecological terrain that precedes them. Focusing on the Rocky Mountains and the American Southwest, and ranging as far afield as the Alps, Finland, Siberia, and China, this beautifully illustrated and gracefully written work illuminates the phenomenon of co-evolution.

Edgar Frances Poree Jr., a lifelong resident of Louisiana, looks back at his struggles, disappointments, and successes in this memoir that examines the African American experience in the South. As a Black male, he dealt with deeply rooted prejudices, religious discrimination, and conflict with older members of the Black community. He constantly faced inner turmoil, but he remained steadfast in his focus to achieve his goals and navigate the transition from segregation to integration. Poree learned to be resourceful early, convincing the owner of a nearby grocery store to give him a job cleaning the store and organizing the shelves. He went on to start his own business polishing hardwood floors while in the seventh grade. His love for music eventually helped him earn a scholarship at Xavier University in New Orleans, and from there he was on his way. From his teaching career to his successes as a business executive and civic leader, Poree shares his memories of real people, real places, and real divisions. His hope is that you’ll be emboldened, encouraged and inspired to achieve your own dreams.

Lord Learie Constantine was an all-time great West Indian cricketer who found himself at the centre of race relations in 1940s Britain when, on June 30, he won a High Court action when he and his family were ordered out of the Imperial Hotel in Russell Square because white US soldiers objected. It led to the passing of the Race Relations Act in 1968 – an act in which he was heavily involved. Lord Learie was the grandson of a slave, a High Commissioner of Trinidad, the first Afro-Caribbean to become a Peer of the Realm, a BBC governor, a writer and, later, a pioneer in race relations during WW2 Britain and the Windrush affair. In cricket, Learie was a sporting icon, in politics, he made a discernible difference to equality in the UK. This book tells the important and sometimes overlooked story, of Lord Learie’s achievements – both in the field of cricket and in politics. His fight for equality, seemingly against the odds, is a story that remains highly relevant today. Brian Scovell ghostwrote Lord Constantine’s cricket commentaries between 1963-69 for the Daily Sketch, driving him around the country while attending Test matches. They formed a lifelong friendship culminating in Brian being invited to speak at the Houses of Parliament when the bust of Lord Learie was unveiled in 2019, marking the 50th anniversary of his being appointed as the first black Peer in 1969.
