  • Winston Churchillby Wendy Conklin

    Shell Education 2007; US$ 8.99

    When Adolf Hitler began raising his army, one of the first people who sounded the alarm was Winston Churchill. After France fell to Hitler, Churchill held strong and worked to build up his army. Time and time again, Hitler offered a peace deal to Churchill in hopes that Churchill would leave him alone and back out of the war. Each time Churchill refused,... more...

  • Richard III and the Murder in the Towerby Peter A Hancock

    The History Press 2011; US$ 5.99

    Richard III is accused of murdering his nephews (the 'Princes in the Tower') in order to usurp the throne of England. Since Tudor times he has been painted as the 'black legend', the murderous uncle. However, the truth is much more complicated and interesting. Rather than looking at all the killings Richard III did not commit, this book focuses on... more...

  • Thistle and Bambooby Shiona Airlie

    Hong Kong University Press, HKU 2010; US$ 40.00

    Colonial civil servant, Confucian scholar, and collector of Chinese art, Sir James Stewart Lockhart spent more than forty years in Hong Kong and Weihaiwei — the former British leased territory in northern China. His career reflects tension and upheaval in the emerging colony of Hong Kong and in a China rapidly giving way to civil war. In her vivid... more...

  • Riker Vs Gastonby Scott Tierney

    Andrews UK 2012; US$ 2.99

    Pointless conversations: a selection of daft, ridiculous and utterly pointless meanderings from the mind of Scott Tierney. If you’ve ever wanted to know the answers to why Superman is a coward, why Spiderman should technically be deformed, and if Superdog caused the death of Krypton, then these bite-sized comics will reveal all. The discussions... more...

  • Eigensinnige Geographienby Malte Bergmann; Bastian Lange

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 33.84

    Stadt ist im 21. Jahrhundert die zentrale Schnittstelle von vielschichtigen sozialen, ökologischen und kulturellen Verunsicherungen sowie gleichzeitig Ausgangspunkt bei der Suche nach neuen Formen der Alltagsbewältigung. Aufgrund dieser ambivalenten und oft paradoxen Ausdrucksgestalt, eröffnen die BeiträgerInnen die Frage nach den sozialräumlichen... more...

  • Liberty, Authority, Formalityby John Morrow

    Andrews UK 2012; US$ 20.99

    The essays in this volume are all inspired by the historical scholarship of J.C. Davis. During a prolific career, Davis has transformed our understanding of early modern utopian literature and its contexts, and compelled students of seventeenth-century English to re-evaluate the significance of movements and individuals who have had a prominent place... more...

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 29.00 US$ 23.78

    This book presents a realistic assessment of British priorities in the years before 1914. more...

  • Whatever Next?by Earl Ferrers

    Biteback Publishing 2011; US$ 15.99

    To say this is not a political autobiography would be an understatement. In fact, the author reckons it is not an autobiography at all. This book is more Downton Abbey than 10 Downing Street. It traces Earl Ferrers' aristocratic upbringing in the 1930s in the stately surroundings of Staunton Harold through his wartime childhood, national service in... more...

  • The Final Curtseyby Margaret Rhodes

    Birlinn 2012; US$ 10.99

    This is the intimate and revealing autobiography of Margaret Rhodes, the first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and the niece of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Margaret was born into the Scottish aristocracy, into a now almost vanished world of privilege. Royalty often came to stay and her house was run in the style of Downton Abbey. In the Second... more...
