During this year's meeting the emphasis was on updating the database as well as knowledge of assessment methods within the group. At the beginning of the meeting a two-day course in assessment methodology was held. A separate section is devoted to each main group of species (sardine, sardinellas, horse mackerels and mackerel). For each of these, actualized information until 2001 is given on stock identity, the fisheries, catch and effort, biological data and abundance indices.--Publisher's description.

The Groupe Des Dombes
Author: Catherine E. Clifford
Publisher: Peter Lang
This book explores the unique and substantial contribution to reflection on conversion and Christian unity by the "Groupe des Dombes," a Reformed-Lutheran-Catholic dialogue in French-speaking Europe. Catherine E. Clifford traces the development of the dialogue from its founding in 1937 by Abbe Paul Couturier and its contribution to ecumenical consensus on eucharist, ministry, sacraments, episcope, the papacy, and Marian doctrine and devotion. The theme of conversion grounds the ethos of the "Groupe des Dombes," marked by a deep appreciation of the interdependence of common prayer, theological dialogue, and the promotion of ecclesial reform and renewal. The "Groupe des Dombes'" theological method, which leads to calls for the revision of both judgments of the past and of present theology and practice, suggests that the elaboration of ecumenical consensus, while significant, is but a first step toward the reconciliation of the churches. This is an important book for anyone engaged in ecumenical study and dialogue."

Author: Sophie Hénaff
Publisher: MacLehose Press
Suspended from her job as a promising police officer for firing "one bullet too many", Anne Capestan is expecting the worst when she is summoned to H.Q. to learn her fate. Instead, she is surprised to be told that she is to head up a new police squad, working on solving old cold cases. Though relived to still have a job, Capestan is not overjoyed by the prospect of her new role. Even less so when she meets her new team: a crowd of misfits, troublemakers and problem cases, none of whom are fit for purpose and yet none of whom can be fired. But from this inauspicious start, investigating the cold cases throws up a number a number of strange mysteries for Capestan and her team: was the old lady murdered seven years ago really just the victim of a botched robbery? Who was behind the dead sailor discovered in the Seine with three gunshot wounds? And why does there seem to be a curious link with a ferry that was shipwrecked off the Florida coast many years previously?
