  • Slim, Master of Warby Robert Lyman

    Little, Brown Book Group 2016; Not Available

    General W J Slim achieved something no one believed possible.

  • The Ludicrous Laws of Old Londonby Nigel Cawthorne

    Little, Brown Book Group 2016; Not Available

    London abounds with all manner of ludicrous laws, and not all of these curious statutes have been relegated to the past.

Laws are made in the capital because parliament is here; so... more...

  • The Long Weekendby Adrian Tinniswood

    Random House 2016; US$ 36.65

    There is nothing quite as beautiful as an English country house in summer.

Real life in the country house during... more...

  • A Walk in the Parkby Travis Elborough

    Random House 2016; US$ 26.78

    Parks are such a familiar part of everyday life. You might be forgiven for thinking they have always been there ? and that they always will. In fact, the roots of even the most humble neighbourhood park lie in age-old battles over land and liberty. From their medieval life as private royal hunting grounds to their modern incarnation as public spaces... more...

  • Woodrow Wilsonby Barry Hankins

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 23.99

    Woodrow Wilson was easily one of the most religious presidents in American history. Yet, his religion has puzzled historians for decades.

    Transworld 2016; US$ 36.65

    ?War is too important to be left to the generals? snapped future French prime minister Georges Clemenceau on learning of yet another bloody and futile offensive on the Western Front.
