  • 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.

The discussions... more...

  • Liberty, Authority, Formalityby John Morrow

    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.

  • The Great Filthby Stephen Halliday

    The History Press 2011; US$ 18.94

    Victorian Britain was the world's industrial powerhouse. Its factories, mills and foundries supplied a global demand for manufactured goods. As Britain changed from an agricultural to an industrial ecomony, people swarmed into the towns and cities where the work was; by the end of Queen Victoria's reign, almost 80 per cent of the population was urban.... more...

  • Whatever Next?by Earl Ferrers; Earl Ferrerrs

    Biteback Publishing 2011; US$ 29.15

    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...
