I have just come across a reference to a book by RB that I have never
seen referenced bofore - Philosophy and the Idea of Freedom, Blackwell,
1991

I have looked it up and it does exist but is out of print.

Can anyone who has a copy tell me briefly what it covers. 
Why is it referenced so little in comparison with others/

The ref. was in an article by P. Lewis in the book "Critical Realism in
Economics" ed. S. Fleetwood and made reference to a distinction, made by
RB in the book, between "conversational referring (c ref)" and
"practical referring (p ref)".  This also is a distinction I have not
come across before.

What does anyone make of it and is there discussion in any other places?

BTW, two new books I have come across:

Realist Perspectives on management and Organizations, Ackroyd and
Fleetwood (eds), Routledge, 2000

Critical Realism and marxism, Brown, Fleetwood and roberts (eds.)
Routledge, 2002
