Dear Adam,

Do you have a contact address for Penny Bayer. The BL EThOS service has the following note:

"Although University of Warwick participates in EThOS, this thesis cannot be supplied from the EThOS service. The reason given by the institution is: uni unable to locate author for permission."

It would be really good if she could contact Warwick & give her permission
