Gaining Ground Second Edition from the Author: Jennifer A. Clack. Around 370 million years ago, a distant relative of a modern lungfish began a most extraordinary adventure—emerging from the water and laying claim to the land. Over the next 70 million years, this tentative beachhead had developed into a worldwide colonization by ever-increasing varieties of four-limbed creatures known as tetrapods, the ancestors of all vertebrate life on land. This new edition of Jennifer A. Clack's groundbreaking book tells the complex story of their emergence and evolution. Beginning with their closest relatives, the lobe-fin fishes such as lungfishes and coelacanths, Clack defines what a tetrapod is, describes their anatomy, and explains how they are related to other vertebrates. She looks at the Devonian environment in which they evolved, describes the known and newly discovered species, and explores the order and timing of anatomical changes that occurred during the fish-to-tetrapod transition.

Gaining Ground from the Author: Deborah James. Gaining Ground? Rights and Property in South African Land Reform examines how land reform policy and practice in post-apartheid South Africa have been produced and contested. Set in the province of Mpumalanga, the book gives an ethnographic account of local initiatives and conflicts, showing how the poorest sectors of the landless have defied the South African state's attempts to privatize land holdings and create a new class of African farmers. They insist that the 'rights-based' rather than the 'market-driven' version of land reform should prevail and that land restitution was intended to benefit all Africans. However their attempts to gain land access often backfire. Despite state assurances that land reform would benefit all, illegal land selling and 'brokering' are pervasive, representing one of the only feasible routes to land access by the poor. This book shows how human rights lawyers, NGOs and the state, in interaction with local communities, have tried to square these symbolic and economic claims on land.

Gaining Ground In Difficult Negotiations from the Author: Manon Schonewille. Experienced managers and lawyers know the value of being proficient in negotiations, which are executed every day on nearly everything. Most negotiators are continually faced with diverse and complicated situations, so it is important to have a set of tools for handling challenging situations, as well as for dealing with people who may be difficult to interact with. In practice, there is a common tendency to respond to difficult situations or people with a 'fight or flight' response. Many business negotiations and settlement agreements risk ending with suboptimal outcomes. This book has been compiled to accompany the training of Bruce Patton, one of the world's most prominent scientists and experts on negotiation. It contains the key tools that are necessary to deal with difficult people and tense situations. These crucial insights and skills will enable the reader to change negotiation behavior from 'instinctive' to 'strategic and in control.' The book also includes convenient summaries, practical checklists, worksheets, as well as interviews with influential negotiation scholars, in order to capture the key concepts.
