History of Britain BODLEY HEAD

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'While Britain was losing an empire, it was finding itself...' The compelling opening words to "The Fate of the Empire", set the tone and agenda for the final stage of Simon Schama's epic voyage around Britain, her people and her past. Spanning two centuries, crossing the breadth of the empire and covering a vast expanse of topics - from the birth of feminism to the fate of freedom - he explores the forces that shaped British culture and character from 1776 to 2000. The story opens on the eve of a bloody revolution, but not a British one. The French Revolution never quite crossed the Channel, though its spirit of fiery defiance and Romantic idealism did, sparking off a round of radical revolts and reforms that gathered momentum over the coming century - from the Irish Rebellion to the Chartist Petition. The great question of the Victorian century was how the world's first industrial society could come through its growing pains without falling apart in social and political conflict. Would the machine age destroy or strengthen the institutions that held Britain together, from the family to the farm? And if the British Empire helped to make Britain stable and rich, did it live up to its promise to help the ruled as well as the rulers? On the way to answering these questions, "The Fate of the Empire" makes stops at both celebrations, like the Great Exhibition, and catastrophes, like the Irish potato famine and the Indian Mutiny. Amidst the military and economic shocks and traumas of the 20th century, and through the voices of Churchill, Orwell and H. G. Wells, it asks the question that is still with us - is the immense weight of our history a blessing or a curse, a gift or a millstone around the neck of our future? It is a vast compelling epic, made more so by the lively storytelling and big bold characters at the heart of the action. But alongside flamboyant heroes, like Nelson and Churchill, Schama recalls unsung heroines and virtually unknown enemies. Alongside the grand ideas, he exposes the grand illusions that cost untold lives. Schama looks head on at the facts and asks, 'What went wrong with the liberal dream?' The answers emerge in "The Fate of the Empire", which reveals the living ideals of Britain's long history, 'a history that tied together social justice with bloody-minded liberty'.

Great Walks of Europe FRANCES LINCOLN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the high-level route across the Pyrenees to the scenic Kerry Way in Ireland, from a descent through the Samaria Gorge in Crete to an ascent of Helvellyn in the Lake District, this book identifies the greatest walks in Europe: twelve of the best long-distance walks (taking from four to fifteen days to complete) and twelve extraordinary day walks. Among the long-distance walks are the incomparable GR20 in Corsica - a coast-to-coast journey through jagged peaks and deep, forested valleys; the ancient Ridgeway across English downland; the Jungfrau Horseshoe in Austria, which visits the best viewpoints of the Bernese Oberland's most famous alpine peaks; and the Kungsleden, or Royal Trail, through the Swedish wilderness. Short walks include the Snowdon Horseshoe, one of the finest mountain walks in Britain; a walk through the Verdon Gorge in France, Europe's equivalent of the Grand Canyon; and an excursion to the Inaccessible Pinnacle on the romantic Isle of Skye in Scotland. Richard Sale describes each route, explaining noteworthy features of all kinds and giving historical and cultural details as well as useful information about maps, statistics and the like. His lavish and spectacular photographs of landscapes and wildlife capture the walks' spirit and character. The book will be a boon and a delight to walkers, inspiring them to relive past adventures and tempting them to plan expeditions for the future.

Laura Secord. The Lost Canadian Heroine of the War of 1812 GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Cultural Studies - Canada, grade: A, , course: HIE 203: Canadian History, language: English, abstract: The outcome of the War of 1812 had major implications in the development of not only the United States, but as well on Canada. On 24 June 1812, Great Britain discovered via a messenger that the United States was asserting its power and declaring war against Great Britain. Although greatly outnumbered, Britain's small but well trained army, commanded by such senior officers as Isaac Brock and George Prevost, was able to fend off the Americans and win the war at the border.§§This victory was in large part the result of the supporting role played by the Natives and a former American woman whose allegiance to Britain was instrumental in the British maintaining their strategic position and stronghold in Canada. Specifically, Laura Secord, an American born loyalist whose family moved to Upper Canada, "lured by cheap land and low taxes", dramatically changed the course of Canadian history by playing an essential part in the British Victory at Beaver Dams.§§Nonetheless, if history affectionately nicknames Secord "The Heroine of the War of 1812", why did it take half a century to properly compensate and recognize Secord's instrumental role in supporting the British during the War of 1812 at Beaver Dams? This paper argues that Laura Secord's heroic actions in June 1813 played an extremely important role in the victory at the Battle of Beaver's Dam, and her efforts made a significant contribution in shaping Canada's future. More specifically, by analyzing Secord before, during and after her famous 32 kilometer walk from Queenston to Beaver Dams it is evident that Secord was a pivotal figure in securing the land that would have otherwise have been claimed by the Americans. Despite her vital role Secord was completely ignored by the British and her loyalist countrymen for almost half a century.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Even though the First World War had ended, the battle against Britain's enemies continued unabated during the period of the 1920s and 1930s. Buffeted by political interference and often fighting for their very survival, Britain's intelligence services turned to fight a new, clandestine war against rising powers Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany. Using recently declassified files of the British Security Service (MI5), The Secret War Between the Wars details the operations and tradecraft of British intelligence to thwart Communist revolutionaries, Soviet agents, and Nazi sympathizers during the interwar period. This new study charts the development of British intelligence methods and policies in the early twentieth century and illuminates the fraught path of intelligence leading to the Second World War. An analysis of Britain's most riveting interwar espionage cases tells the story of Britain's transition between peace and war. The methods developed by British intelligence in the early twentieth century continue to resonate today. Much like now, the intelligence activity of the British in the pre-Second World War era focused on immediate threats posed by subversive, clandestine networks against a backdrop of shifting great power politics. As Western countries continue to face the challenge of terrorism, and in an era of geopolitical change heralded by the rise of China and the resurgence of Russia, a return to the past may provide context for a better understanding of the future. Kevin Quinlan received his PhD in History from the University of Cambridge. He lives and works in Washington, DC.

The "Key Issues" series aims to make available the contemporary responses that met important books and debates on their first appearance. These take the form of journal articles, book extracts, public letters, sermons and pamphlets which provides an insight into the historical relevance and the social and political context in which a publication or particular topic emerged. The 1870s is a key decade in the evolution of British thinking about the nature, purpose and future of empire. Increasing economic competition began to disturb the assumption about Britain's leadership in technology and in the world economy. The growth of other countries, most notably the United States and Germany, also put a question mark over Britain's survival as a great power. These changes set in motion a reappraisal of Britain's empire and its importance to the motherland, and a debate as to whether colonialism and imperialism were a burden rather than a benefit to Britain. The discussions on the 1870s set the agenda for the debates of the next half-century. This text documents the writings that were central to this debate, and includes contributions by British thinkers, statesmen and officials such as J.A. Froude, Robert Lowe, Edward Dicey, Frederic Seebohm, Lord Carnarvon, Gladstone, Julius Vogel and Lord Blachford.

"In my opinion Peter Duffell is the most under-rated director we have had in Britain for a very long time. I am sure this book will be a great success and will help people to understand how films are made, particularly when the result is clearly the work of a highly skilled hand." - Christopher Lee British Academy Award-winning director and writer Peter Duffell has made films in many countries. His account of his life as a film director - and his road thereto - take us on a fascinating journey through years' worth of tales of the films and TV shows he worked on, alongside some of the leading lights of the entertainment world. Duffell's first feature, a horror movie that has become an all-time cult favourite, mirrored his future work in that it starred some of the great stars of the era, inc. Christopher Lee, Denholm Elliot, Peter Cushing and Ingrid Pitt. He moved on to write the script of a book by one of his great heroes, Graham Greene, which he shot in Yugslavia starring Peter Finch, Michael York and Michael Hordern - and although Greene famously loathed almost every production of his work he was delighted with Duffell's England Made Me and the two became lifelong friends. Berlin beckoned, alongside Telly Savalas, Robert Culp and James Mason, in the shape of a Warner Bros caper movie set on both sides of the Wall. Then followed plans for a prestigious thriller set in Istanbul with agreed international top name billing. Back in Germany Duffell makes the beautifully interpreted Caught On A Train with Peggy Ashcroft and Michael Kitchen that earns him the great admiration of peers like Fred Zinneman, together with a coveted BAFTA for Best Director. He shares highly entertaining stories of off-screen drama whilst filming the epic movie "The Far Pavilions" - a brilliantly directed love story set in India among racism, violence, heat and dust, featuring many of the major stars of the time, including John Gielgud and Omar Sharif.

After Hitler Hodder & Stoughton Export Edit

On 30 April 1945, Adolf Hitler committed suicide. The following day, his propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels also killed himself and the crumbling Third Reich passed to Admiral Karl D?nitz. The Nazis' position seemed hopeless. Yet remarkably, the war in the rest of Europe went on for another ten days. After Hitler looks at these days as a narrative day-by-day countdown but also as a broader global history of a European war that had seen some of the most savage battles in history. Relations between the 'Big Three' - the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union - suddenly plunged to near breaking point. This book reveals that tumultuous story.§After Hitler also looks at the wider canvas of the war and the terrible humanitarian catastrophe uncovered in Europe. It describes those who felt the joy of freedom, but also those who faced a highly uncertain future. As Red Army soldiers joined forces with their British and American allies, Stalin's East finally came face to face with Churchill's and Truman's West. After Hitler tells of their growing mistrust, but also of moments of remarkable goodwill and co-operation - the brief but poignant hope that these great nations could together fashion a new and safer future. This is a fascinating exploration of the brief but crucial period that shaped the emerging post-war world.

The book publishing industry is going through a period of profound and turbulent change brought about in part by the digital revolution. What is the role of the book in an age preoccupied with computers and the internet? How has the book publishing industry been transformed by the economic and technological upheavals of recent years, and how is it likely to change in the future? This is the first major study of the book publishing industry in Britain and the United States for more than two decades. Thompson focuses on academic and higher education publishing and analyses the evolution of these sectors from 1980 to the present. He shows that each sector is characterized by its own distinctive 'logic' or dynamic of change, and that by reconstructing this logic we can understand the problems, challenges and opportunities faced by publishing firms today.He also shows that the digital revolution has had, and continues to have, a profound impact on the book publishing business, although the real impact of this revolution has little to do with the ebook scenarios imagined by many commentators. "Books in the Digital Age" will become a standard work on the publishing industry at the beginning of the 21st century. It will be of great interest to students taking courses in the sociology of culture, media and cultural studies, and publishing. It will also be of great value to professionals in the publishing industry, educators and policy makers, and to anyone interested in books and their future.

Fourth Revolution ALLEN LANE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In The Fourth Revolution, John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge ask: what is the state actually for? Their remarkable book describes the three great revolutions in its history, and the fourth which is happening now. In most of the states of the West, disillusion with government has become endemic. Gridlock in America; anger in much of Europe; cynicism in Britain; decreasing legitimacy everywhere. Most of us are resigned to the fact that nothing is ever going to change. But as John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge show us in this galvanising book, this is a seriously limited view of things. In response to earlier crises in government, there have been three great revolutions, which have brought about in turn the nation-state, the liberal state and the welfare state. In each, Europe and America have set the example. We are now, they argue, in the midst of a fourth revolution in the history of the nation-state, but this time the Western way is in danger of being left behind. The Fourth Revolution brings the crisis into full view and points toward our future. The authors enjoy extraordinary access to influential figures and forces the world over, and the book is a global tour of the innovators. The front lines are in Chinese-oriented Asia, where experiments in state-directed capitalism and authoritarian modernization have ushered in an astonishing period of development. Other emerging nations are producing striking new ideas, from Brazil's conditional cash-transfer welfare system to India's application of mass-production techniques in hospitals. These governments have not by any means got everything right, but they have embraced the spirit of active reform and reinvention which in the past has provided so much of the West's comparative advantage. The race is not just one of efficiency, but one to see which political values will triumph in the twenty-first century: the liberal values of democracy and freedom or the authoritarian values of command and control. The centre of gravity is shifting quickly, and the stakes could not be higher. John Micklethwait is the Editor-in-Chief of the Economist; Adrian Wooldridge was its Washington bureau chief until 2009, and now serves as Management Editor and 'Schumpter' columnist. They have written four previous books together: The Company: A Short History of a Revolutionary Idea; A Future Perfect: The Challenge and Promise of Globalization; The Witchdoctors: Making Sense of the Management Gurus; The Right Nation: Why America is Different; and God is Back: How the Global Rise of Faith is Changing the World.

Excerpt: M*A*S*H is an American television series developed by Larry Gelbart, adapted from the 1970 feature film MASH (which was itself based on the 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, by Richard Hooker). The series is a medical drama/black comedy that was produced in association with 20th Century Fox Television for CBS. It follows a team of doctors and support staff stationed at the "4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital" in Uijeongbu, South Korea, during the Korean War. M*A*S*H's title sequence featured an instrumental version of the song "Suicide Is Painless", which also appears in the original film. The show was created after an attempt to film the original book's sequel, M*A*S*H Goes to Maine, failed. It is the most well-known version of the M*A*S*H works. The series premiered in the US on September 17, 1972, and ended February 28, 1983, with the finale becoming the most-watched television episode in U.S. television history with 105.97 million viewers (though one estimate said 125 million viewers); in 2010, Super Bowl XLIV surpassed the record with 106.5 million viewers. Despite the high turn out for the final episode of M*A*S*H, it struggled in its first season and was at risk of being canceled. However, season two of M*A*S*H placed it in a better time slot and the show became one of the top ten programs of the year and stayed in the top twenty programs for the rest of its eleven season run. The show is still broadcast in syndication on various television stations. The series, which covered a three-year military conflict, spanned 251 episodes and lasted eleven seasons. Many of the stories in the early seasons are based on real-life tales told by real MASH surgeons who were interviewed by the pr...
