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'.

Wiltshire and the Great War The Crowood Press Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Soon after the start of the Great War, work hastily began on a series of hutted camps in Wiltshire for more than 100,000 men, and during the course of the war it became home to troops from Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as Britain. With soldiers forming a third of the population the effect on the businesses, farms, and indeed the morals of the county was dramatic. Even after the Armistice peace did not return, with mutinies and rioting in the camps because of frustration at delays in demobilization. Wiltshire and the Great War describes this turbulent, fascinating period in depth. It describes pre-war training, showing how inappropriate it was to future warfare, outlines the pioneering of military aviation in the county and describes the role of railways in moving tens of thousands of troops. There are accounts of shirkers, spies, escaped prisoners of war, prostitutes, the 'landship' that clanked across the county and the wireless station that pinpointed the position of Zeppelins. Also described are advances in military technology, the camp-building scandals that led to an inquiry by a Royal Commission, press censorship, and the blighting of the Stonehenge landscape.

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.

Once Britain's pensions system was admired around the world. Now it is in tatters, and vast numbers of us face the grim choice of enduring a poverty-stricken future or working until we drop. What on earth went wrong? In The Great Pensions Robbery, award-winning journalist Alex Brummer ventures into the corridors of power to find out how politicians bent on penny-pinching, a bullied and ineffectual civil service, and highly placed but unscrupulous individuals all played their part in fatally undermining a 100-year-old system. And, as he convincingly argues, the story is very far from being over.

Scattered Ghosts I B TAURIS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When two Hungarian Jewish refugees landed by accident in Britain in the winter of 1956, they had little idea what the future would hold. But they carried with them the traces of their turbulent past, just enough to provide the clues to their past. Scattered Ghosts combines memoir, investigation and travel to resurrect 200 years of wars and revolutions, from the Austro-Hungarian Empire via two totalitarianisms to contemporary Britain. It is the story of an all but disappeared world told through the eyes of a single family ruptured by great forces, and occasionally brought together by cherry strudel. Through haphazard and fragmented possessions - a blunt-pencilled letter; a final photograph; a hastily typed certificate; a protecting document; a farewell postcard from a distant place; a recipe - Nick Barlay retraces the footsteps of the vanished. There is the death march of a grandfather, the military manoeuvres of a great uncle, the final weeks and moments of a great grandmother deported to Auschwitz, two boys' survival of an untold massacre, and codenamed spies operating in Cold War Britain. The ordinary mysteries and emotional legacies still resonate today in the parallel lives of far-flung family members. Diaspora, division and cultural identity form the backdrop to the story of ancestors who walked barefoot from Eastern Europe to experience Communism and Nazism, and to outlive them both. Scattered Ghosts is a family history that explores the events, great and small, on which a family's existence hinges. How did one person survive and another die? How did a Soviet tank shell cause a revolution between sisters? How did two refugees escape an invading army? Where did successive generations end up? And, ultimately, where did the recipe for cherry strudel come from?

Secret War Between the Wars: MI5 in the 1920s and 1930s The Boydell Press

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.

Darkest Days Verso Books

The centenary of the outbreak of the First World War may be commemorated by some as a great moment of national history. But the standard history of Britain's choice for war is far from the truth. Using a wide range of sources, including the personal papers of many of the key figures, some for the first time, historian Douglas Newton presents a new, dramatic narrative. He interleaves the story of those pressing for a choice for war with the story of those resisting Britain's descent into calamity. He shows how the decision to go to war was rushed, in the face of vehement opposition, in the Cabinet and Parliament, in the Liberal and Labour press, and in the streets. There was no democratic decision for war.The history of this opposition has been largely erased from the record, yet it was crucial to what actually happened in August 1914. Two days before the declaration of war four members of the Cabinet resigned in protest at the war party's manipulation of the crisis. The government almost disintegrated. Meanwhile large crowds gathered in Trafalgar Square to hear the case for neutrality and peace. Yet this cry was ignored by the government. Meanwhile, elements of the press, the Foreign Office, and the Tory Opposition sought to browbeat the government into a quick decision. Belgium had little to do with it.The key decision to enter the war was made before Belgium was invaded. Those bellowing for hostilities were eager for Britain to enter any war in solidarity with Russia and France - for the future safety of the British Empire. In particular Newton shows how Prime Minister H. H. Asquith, Foreign Minister Sir Edward Grey, and First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill colluded to pre-empt the decisions of Cabinet, to manipulate the parliament, and to hurry the nation toward intervention by any means necessary.

"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 - 2854192549

After Hitler John Murray Publishers Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

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 Donitz. 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.

Ditherington Mill and the Industrial Revolution EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Ditherington Mill is rightly celebrated as having the first iron-framed building in the world. Its highly innovative structure provided a fireproof environment for industrial processes and is a predecessor of the technologies that today pepper our cities with skyscrapers. Around the Spinning Mill other early buildings have also survived, which together make the complex a remarkable example of a textile mill from the new generation of steam-powered factories that were changing the face of Britain at the close of the 18th century. The conversion to a maltings in 1897 gave the mill a new lease of life and added further significant buildings to the Shrewsbury skyline. When malting ceased in 1987 the future of the site became an issue of great concern, not only to students of industrial architecture but also to local people who had worked in the maltings or for whom the site had become a familiar landmark in their everyday lives. Historic England believes that a detailed understanding of Ditherington Mill's past should be a cornerstone of its future conservation and adaptation. Since its closure archaeologists and historians have examined every aspect of this internationally significant industrial site. This research has investigated the innovative technologies employed to create the factory's buildings and has cast light on the people - some of national renown, others now all but forgotten - responsible for the mill's construction and operation. The story which has emerged is a rich one and is summarised in this book, the publication of which is a further demonstration of a collective commitment to securing the site's future.
