Africa and Asia in Comparative Economic Perspective by Peter Lawrence

Book Description

This collection compares the relatively unsuccessful economic development of Sub-Saharan Africa with that of the successful Asian economies, especially the Asian "tigers". It covers three main areas of comparison: the lessons for Africa from the Asian experience secondly, the comparisons of various aspects of economic development in Africa and Asia and finally, convergence: how far the laggard economies are catching up with, or diverging away from, each other.

Century of Submarines by Peter Lawrence Century of Submarines, Paperback (November 2009)

The first submarines to be commissioned by the British Admiralty were five 'Holland' class boats in 1900. Full realisation of the submarine's fighting capabilities did not come until the Second World War. This account of submarine history is complimented by nearly 200 illustrations, from the crude beginnings to the highly technological present.
