Justice - Freedom Vs Fit (Signed)

BBC
The seventh of Harvard professor Michael Sandel's famous lectures on the philosophy of justice looks at the issue of individual rights and the freedom to choose. If our place in society is determined by where we best fit, doesn't that eliminate personal choice? What if I am best suited to do one kind of work, but I want to do another?

The Oxford Colour Spelling Dictionary

Maurice Waite , Oxford University Press , 1996
The Oxford Colour Spelling Dictionary simply lists words and names (including all plurals, tenses, etc. even where regular) in a single, clear A-Z sequence. This second edition is completely up to date and includes names of people, places, companies, etc. Sound-alike words and names are glossed for clarity and the two-colour text is easy to use. A huge time-saver for anyone needing to check their spelling (especially for names which most dictionaries leave out), The Oxford Colour Spelling Dictionary gives full hyphenation for each word, making it indispensable for editors, typesetters, keyboarders, and anyone involved in desk-top publishing. In addition, both British and US spellings are given and cross-referred - vital for publishers and others importing text across the Atlantic. This book is intended for anyone who wants quick access to spelling advice.

Helen Warren , Oxford University Press , 1994
The Oxford Learner's Dictionary of English Idioms presents the most useful idioms in English and explains them in clear, simple language the intermediate student can understand. Improved design and cross-referencing makes it even easier for students to find what they are looking for. Useful guidance is also given to help with the correct pronunciation and the derivation of many of the more colourful idioms is explained to increase understanding. Study pages show how idioms are used in arguments, discussions and other typical communicative contexts.
