    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...

  • Deterrence through Strengthby Rebecca Berens Matzke

    UNP - Nebraska 2011; US$ 45.00

    The notion of a Pax Britannica—a concept implying that Britain’s overwhelming strength enforced global peace in the era that began with Napoleon’s defeat in 1815—largely ended with the British Empire itself. Although most historians still view this period as a departure from the eighteenth century, when lengthy coalition wars were commonplace, critics... more...
