A History of British Actuarial Thought

A History of British Actuarial Thought By Craig Turnbull
English | PDF | 350 Pages | 2017 | ISBN : 3319331825 | 4.03 MB

In the first book of its kind, Turnbull traces the development and implementation of actuarial ideas, from the conception of Equitable Life in the mid-18th century to the start of the 21st century. This book analyses the historical development of British actuarial thought in each of its three main practice areas of life assurance, pensions and general insurance. It discusses how new actuarial approaches were developed within each practice area, and how these emerging ideas interacted with each other and were often driven by common external factors such as shocks in the economic environment, new intellectual ideas from academia and developments in technology.

Conquering the Highlands: A history of the afforestation of the Scottish uplands

Conquering the Highlands: A history of the afforestation of the Scottish uplands by Jan Oosthoek
English | Mar. 6, 2013 | ISBN: 1922144789 | 208 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Deforestation of Scotland began millennia ago and by the early 20th century woodland cover was down to about 6 per cent of the total land area. A century later woodland cover had tripled. Most of the newly established forestry plantations were created on elevated land with wet peaty soils and high wind exposure, not exactly the condition in which forests naturally thrive. Jan Oosthoek tells in this book the story of how 20th century foresters devised ways to successfully reforest the poor Scottish uplands, land that was regarded as unplantable, to fulfil the mandate they had received from the Government and wider society to create a timber reserve.
