In 125 years Chelmsford has changed from a small county town dependent on the local agricultural economy into, firstly, a renowned centre for industry and now a rapidly expanding industrialised city. At their peak during the second war Chelmsford's big firms employed 30,000 people. A newcomer to the city will unfortunately find very little evidence that Marconi, Crompton, Christy and Hoffman were ever even here but this fascinating book looks not only at the lives of these men and the firms they established but how the latter affected nearly all aspects of life in the town. The book also deals with how the town adapted to the decline of its world famous firms and the mistakes made by planners and those running Chelmsford, which led to a markedly different evolution compared with other Essex and East Anglian towns and cities. The book includes all economic, social and political aspects of the town's development using a topic approach. It covers life in Chelmsford during both the first and second world wars. It will be of particular interest to the many people who spent their adult lives working for the big firms. The book has been written for the general layman rather than just those with technical knowledge of the town's previous industry. It is intended not only to be a work of reference but also a readable general history.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Originally published in 1871, this work contains information and illustrations detailing the important made discoveries during the excavation of the lost city of Pompeii. It includes chapters on 'The Theatres', 'Pompeian Art', 'Private Houses', and much more. This is a fascinating read for anyone interested in this wonderful but doomed ancient city. Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near the modern Italian city of Naples. It is famed for being one of the ill-feted settlements destroyed and buried by the massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii is of particular interest and historical importance due to its preservation under the several metres of volcanic ash and pumice, protecting it from air and moisture. This created a snapshot of a moment in an ancient civilisation that would otherwise have been eroded by time.

Tripoli: A History Signal Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It has been called a "Noble Possession", abused as "A Nest of Corsairs" and extolled as "The Pearl of the Mediterranean". This city of Tripoli, one of the oldest on both the Mediterranean and the fringes of the Sahara, and never deserted, has meant many different things to many different people over the past 2,500 years. To its first outside visitors, the trading Phoenicians, it was a safe haven and a market. To its later Roman colonizers it was an outlet for the low grade pastoral produce of its Saharan hinterland. Under Muslim Arab rule it became a wealthy transit market, trading with three continents, while under its Turkish and Karamanli rulers, it was notorious for its corsair galleys that preyed on the merchant shipping of the Central and Eastern Mediterranean. After the Napoleonic Wars the city took on a new role as a base for the trans-Saharan exploration and penetration of inner Africa, with British pioneers followed by Germans, French and Italians. In 1911 Italy invaded this last remaining Turkish possession in North Africa, soon transforming a neglected exiles' outpost into an imposing capital symbolizing Fascist imperial pretensions. Tripoli's fall to the British Eighth Army in January 1943 was seen as a turning point in World War Two, while in 1951 its role as joint capital of the newly-independent Kingdom of Libya marked the start of Africa's post- colonial era. Oil found in Libya in the 1950s and 1960s made Tripoli rich - and a prize that fell in 1969 to the rising forces of Arab nationalism personified by Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. During his 42 years of eccentric rule, Tripoli was transformed into a mega-city, one hundred times greater in extent and population that it had been a century earlier. But by 2015 continuing post-Gaddafi anarchy and depleting oil reserves made the city's future seem as precarious and uncertain as ever it had been. Mixing personal observation and research with accounts from foreign travellers and residents, John Wright reveals the reality of this unique, remarkable and ever-vibrant city: a city with special social, cultural and linguistic "flavours" that not even visitors from other parts of the Arab World can always understand or define.

Excerpt: ... (From a print in Anson's Voyage Around the World.) In his own narrative he tells how he beat up and down between Capes San Lucas and Mendocino until the galleon, heavy with her riches, appeared. She fell into his hands almost without a fray. She carried one hundred and twenty-two thousand pesos of gold and a great and rich store of satins, damask, and musk. Cavendish landed the Spanish on the California coast, burned the "Santa Anna," and then returned to the Philippines and made an attack upon the shipyard of Iloilo, but was repulsed. 177 He sent a letter to the governor at Manila, boasting of his capture, and then sailed for the Cape of Good Hope and home. There is an old story that tells how his sea-worn ships came up the Thames, their masts hung with silk and damask sails. From this time on the venture was less safe. In 1588 there came to Spain the overwhelming disaster of her history, - the destruction of the Great Armada. From this date her power was gone, and her name was no longer a terror on the seas. English freebooters controlled the oceans, and in 1610 the Dutch appeared in the East, never to withdraw. The City of Manila Three Hundred Years Ago. - We can hardly close this chapter without some further reference to the city of Manila as it appeared three hundred years ago. Morga has fortunately left us a detailed description from which the following points in the main are drawn. As we have already seen, Legaspi had laid out the city on the blackened site of the town and fortress of the Mohammedan prince, which had been destroyed in the struggle for occupation. He gave it the same extent and dimensions that it possesses to this day. Like other colonial capitals in the Far East, it was primarily a citadel and refuge from attack. On the point between the sea and the river Legaspi had built the famous and permanent fortress of Santiago. In the time of the great Adelantado it was probably only a wooden stockade, but...

This compact yet comprehensive account of Chicago's history links key events in the city's development, from its marshy origins in the 1600s to today's robust metropolis. Synthesizing a vast body of literature, Spinney presents Chicago in terms of the people whose lives made the city--not only the tycoons and the politicians but also the hundreds of thousands of immigrants from all over the world who have kept the city working. "City of Big Shoulders" sweeps across the colorful and dramatic panorama of Chicago's explosive past. How did the pungent swamplands that the Native Americans called the wild-garlic place mushroom into one of the world's largest and most sophisticated cities? What is the real story behind the Great Chicago Fire? What aspects of American industry exploded with the bomb in Haymarket Square? Did the 1920s in Chicago roar as loudly as Hollywood would have us believe? A city of immigrants and entrepreneurs, Chicago is quintessentially American. Spinney traces formative events in the city's history, bringing to life the people, events, and institutions that are most important for understanding Chicago's story. From Fort Dearborn to Cabrini-Green, Pere Marquette to Mayor Daley, the Union Stockyards to the Chicago Bulls, "City of Big Shoulders" draws together diverse threads of the city's development, shedding light on underlying social and economic causes of major events and, especially, on the roles of ordinary people. Engaging and highly informative, this account will interest students and teachers of urban history, as well as anyone looking for a brisk overview of Chicago's history. Historic photographs and informative tables illuminate the narrative.

In the New York of the 1970s, in the wake of Stonewall and in the midst of economic collapse, you might find the likes of Jasper Johns and William Burroughs at the next cocktail party, and you were as likely to be caught arguing Marx at the New York City Ballet as cruising for sex in the warehouses and parked trucks along the Hudson. This is the New York that Edmund White portrays in "City Boy": a place of enormous intrigue and artistic tumult. Combining the no-holds-barred confession and yearning of "A Boy's Own Story" with the easy erudition and sense of place of "The Flaneur", this is the story of White's years in 1970s New York, bouncing from intellectual encounters with Susan Sontag and Harold Brodkey to erotic entanglements downtown to the burgeoning gay scene of artists and writers. It's a moving, candid, brilliant portrait of a time and place, full of encounters with famous names and cultural icons. Critical Praise: '"City Boy" seems effortless in its tone; it is seamless, wise, funny and charming. The New York described in the book is history now, but history that has made an essential difference to the way we live now. Edmund White evokes the main players in the culture of the city, all of whom he knew, with clarity and with brilliantly-chosen detail and sense of the moment' - Colm Toibin.

Die beiden Jahrhunderte zwischen 1400 und 1600 sind - bei allem Fortsetzen mittelalterlicher Prägungen - von einem permanenten Wandel im Großen wie im Kleinen erfüllt. Exemplarisch zeigt sich diese Dynamik, zu der die Reformation wesentlich beiträgt, auch in der überaus komplexen Organisation städtischen Lebens im Übergang zur Frühen Neuzeit. Die in diesem Sammelband vereinten Tagungsbeiträge aus der Germanistik, Niederlandistik, Geschichtswissenschaft und Neueren Kirchengeschichte gehen der Frage nach, wie in dieser Zeit unter weithin maßgeblichem Einfluss der Kanzlei als zentralem Organ der städtischen Verwaltung und der in ihnen leitend tätigen Stadt- und Ratsschreiber, aber auch durch andere städtische Funktionsträger durch

The Doctor takes Romana for a holiday in Paris - a city which, like a fine wine, has a bouquet all its own. Especially if you visit during one of the vintage years. But the Tardis takes them to 1979, a table-wine year, a year whose vintage is soured by cracks - not in their wine glasses but in the very fabric of time itself. Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious alien scheme which encompasses home-made time machines, the theft of the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race, and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth. Aided by British private detective Duggan, whose speciality is thumping people, the Doctor and Romana must thwart the machinations of the suave, mysterious Count Scarlioni - all twelve of him - if the human race has any chance of survival. But then, the Doctor's holidays tend to turn out a bit like this. Featuring the Fourth Doctor as played by Tom Baker, City of Death is a novel by Gareth Roberts based on the 1979 Doctor Who story written by Douglas Adams under the pen-name David Agnew. City of Death is one of the best-loved serials in the show's 50-year history and was watched by over 16 million viewers when first broadcast.

Night and the City (1950) is a classic film noir, the story of a hoodlum on the make in post-war London. Adapted from a novel by Gerald Kersh, directed by Jules Dassin, it starred Richard Widmark, Gene Tierney, Googie Withers and Herbert Lom. Andrew Pulver's study of the film argues that it is the most important noir film made in the UK, offering a distinctively British twist on the classic noir themes of ambition, avarice and betrayal. In an original and insightful discussion, Pulver traces the film's development and production history, and its reception by British and American critics. He considers the film both as an example of British film noir, which was heavily influenced by the constricting social mores of the interwar years and the shattering effects of World War II, but also as a hybrid of contrasting American and European noir traditions, and explores how the film's score and editing differed in the British and American versions. Finally, he explores the film's representations of the dark underworld of London's Soho, at once the city's entertainment area, but also containing a subterranean life of criminality, prostitution and menace, and reflects upon its contribution to a long history of mythologising of this ever-shifting urban landscape.
