    Langaa RPCIG 2010; US$ 29.95

    The world is regularly confronted on television and in other mass media with dramatic images of African boat migrants.

    Pen and Sword 2011; US$ 12.09

    Few modes of travel have the enduring appeal of steam railways.

  • Keeping Their Placeby Pamela Sambrook

    The History Press 2013; US$ 16.03

    In 1851 there were over a million servants in Britain. This book reveals first--hand tales of put-upon servants, who often had to rise hours before dawn to lay fires, heat water and prepare meals for their employers, and then work into the small hours. Yet there are also heart-warming stories of personal devotion, and reward, and of how the servants... more...

  • Masters and Servants in Tudor Englandby Alison Sim

    The History Press 2013; US$ 29.17

    Although life in Tudor England was ordered in a strict hierarchy and the divisions between social classes were firmly maintained, a life of service was common for all classes, and servants were not necessarily the lowest stratum of society.
