  • King's Mistress, Queen's Servantby Tracy Borman

    Random House 2010; US$ 15.98

    Henrietta Howard, later Countess of Suffolk, was the long-term mistress and confidante of King George II. She was also, as Tracy Borman's wonderfully readable biography reveals, a dedicated patron of the arts; a lively and talented intellectual in her own right; a victim of adultery; a passionate advocate for the rights of women long before the dawn... more...

  • Strange Bloomsby Jennifer Potter

    Atlantic Books Ltd 2014; US$ 14.57

    In seventeenth-century Britain, a new breed of 'curious' gardeners were pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and new plants were stealing into Europe from East and West. John Tradescant and his son were at the vanguard of this change - as gardeners, as collectors and above all as exemplars of an age that began in wonder and ended with the dawning... more...

  • A Very Personal Warby James Hamilton-Paterson

    Faber & Faber 2014; US$ 20.40

    A Very Personal War , first published in 1971, was James Hamilton-Paterson's first non-fiction book, and though out of print for many years it retains its force and relevance today. 'In 1969 my agent called me into his office to meet a mysterious man who wanted his story told. He was Cornelius Hawkridge, who had escaped from Hungary during the... more...

  • Henry Ford: pocket GIANTSby David Long

    The History Press 2014; US$ 10.19

    Why is Henry Ford a giant? Because he put the world on wheels. Henry Ford did not invent the motor car, nor for all the claims did he invent the assembly line or mass production. But more than anyone before or since he is remembered as the man who almost singlehandedly took an expensive contraption of doubtful utility and recast it as a machine which... more...

  • Cliveby Robert Harvey

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 8.99

    The real-life story of Robert Clive would be judged as wildly implausible if it came from the pen of a novelist. Clive of India was one of the most extraordinary and colorful figures Britain ever produced. The founder of Britain's Indian empire, he was also Britain's first great guerrilla fighter by the age of twenty-seven, conqueror of Bengal at... more...

  • America's Boyby James Hamilton-Paterson

    Faber & Faber 2014; US$ 18.94

    In 1986 the overthrow of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos by Cory Aquino's 'People Power' revolution focused global attention on the Philippines. Western media took their lead from the US, and the untrammelled denigration of the fleeing dictator and his wife served to tarnish the Philippines more generally. James Hamilton-Paterson, who knew the Philippines... more...

  • C. S. Lewis & Mere Christianityby Paul McCusker

    Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2014; US$ 14.99

    Mere Christianity is one of the best books of Christian apologetics ever written. Arguably, no book other than the Bible itself has had as much influence for the cause of the gospel over the past 60 years. The story of how that message came to be created, during the rigors of World War II in England, is fascinating in and of itself. But it also addresses... more...

  • Pope John Paul IIby Tad Szulc

    Scribner 2014; US$ 27.50

    Pope John Paul II is one of the pivotal figures of this century, the spiritual head of more than one billion believers and a world statesman of immense stature and influence. Yet, at the age of seventy-six and in the eighteenth year of his papacy, he remains a mystery -- theologically, politically, and personally. Now, through unprecedented access... more...

  • The Authentic Life of Billy, The Kidby Pat Garrett; Ash Upson

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 6.99

    Hankering for a mostly true tale about the hard-living desperadoes who inhabited America's desert Southwest in the mid-1800s? This biography of the ill-fated gunslinger Billy, the Kid was written by Pat Garrett, the sheriff who shot Billy down. Although some historians now question the veracity of some of the self-aggrandizing bluster Garrett and... more...
