In Our Own Words: A people's commentary on life in the former Soviet Union

Joseph Fjelstad

In Our Own Words: A people's commentary on life in the former Soviet Union by Joseph Fjelstad

The Soviet Union collapse was both sudden and complete. The citizens of the former superpower were caught in a maelstrom of change seldom experienced outside of all out global war. This book captures the experiences of 60 individual citizens of the former Soviet Union for the reader to ponder. The human experience is universal and it is likely that the reader will find echos of some of their own thoughts expressed in these pages.

The following reviews of the first edition give testimony to the need to understand and appreciate the resilience of the human spirit under extreme duress.

Ipswich: Lost Inns, Taverns and Public Houses

David Kindred

Ipswich: Lost Inns, Taverns and Public Houses by David KindredDavid Kindred's book is a remarkable record of some 400 public houses, inns and beerhouses. The entries are organised into two sections: the first describes the public houses that have been closed since 1919 and includes photographs, while the second lists closures from the eighteenth century to the First World War punctuated with photographs where available. By consulting archives, borough records, period newspapers and the painstaking research of the late Jack Ruffles, David Kindred has successfully painted a picture of the evolution of the Ipswich public house. With interesting anecdotes...

Britain and Interwar Danubian Europe: Foreign Policy and Security Challenges, 1919-1936

Dragan Bakic

Britain and Interwar Danubian Europe: Foreign Policy and Security Challenges, 1919-1936 by Dragan BakicDanubian Europe presented constant and serious security risks for European peace and stability and, for that reason, contrary to conventional wisdom, it commanded the attention of British diplomacy with a view to appeasing local conflicts. Britain and Interwar Danubian Europe examines the manner in which the Foreign Office perceived and treated the antagonism between the Little Entente, comprised of Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Romania, and Hungary, on the one hand, and revisionist Bulgaria and her neighbours in the Balkans, on the other, and the impact that these local conflicts had in connection...

The Making of Consumer Culture in Modern Britain

Peter Gurney

The Making of Consumer Culture in Modern Britain by Peter GurneyIt is commonly accepted that the consumer is now centre stage in modern Britain, rather than the worker or producer. Consumer choice is widely regarded as the major source of self-definition and identity rather than productive activity. Politicians vie with each other to fashion their appeal to 'citizen-consumers'.

When and how did these profound changes occur? Which historical alternatives were pushed to the margins in the process? In what ways did the everyday consumer practices and forms of consumer organising adopted by both middle and working-class men and women shape the outcomes? This...

Hitler's Empire: How the Nazis Ruled Europe

Mark Mazower

Hitler's Empire: How the Nazis Ruled Europe by Mark MazowerDraw ing on an unprecedented range and variety of original research, Hitler?s Empire sheds new light on how the Nazis designed, maintained, and lost their European dominion?and offers a chilling vision of what the world would have become had they won the war. Mark Mazower forces us to set aside timeworn opinions of the Third Reich, and instead shows how the party drew inspiration for its imperial expansion from America and Great Britain. Yet the Nazis? lack of political sophistication left them unequal to the task of ruling what their armies had conquered, despite a shocking level of cooperation...

The History of the Provincial Press in England

Rachel Matthews

The History of the Provincial Press in England by Rachel MatthewsRegional newspapers around the globe are fighting to survive in the face of challenges to their economic model, due to the constant influx of new technology. At the same time, while studies of the national press have created a continuous narrative on the newspaper, the history of the regional press has been subject to relatively little academic scrutiny, despite being a significant industry in terms of a readership, circulation and profit.

By focusing on provincial English newspapers, Matthews makes the case for the larger issue of the future of local newspapers worldwide. She argues that a...

Post-War Childhood: Growing up in the not-so-friendly 'Baby Boomer' Years

Simon Webb

Post-War Childhood: Growing up in the not-so-friendly 'Baby Boomer' Years by Simon WebbMany British baby boomers are very nostalgic about a supposed golden age; a vanished world when children were generally freer, happier and healthier than they are now. They wandered about all day; only returning home at teatime when they were hungry. Nobody worried about health and safety or 'stranger danger' in those days and no serious harm ever befell children as a result. In Post-War Childhood, Simon Webb examines the facts and figures behind the myth of children's carefree lives in the post-war years, finding that such things as the freedom to roam the streets and fields came at a terrible...

Four Princes: Henry VIII, Francis I, Charles V, Suleiman the Magnificent and the Obsessions that Forged Modern Europe

John Julius Norwich

Four Princes: Henry VIII, Francis I, Charles V, Suleiman the Magnificent and the Obsessions that Forged Modern Europe by John Julius NorwichJohn Julius Norwich-"the very model of a popular historian" (Wall Street Journal)-is acclaimed for his distinctive ability to weave together a fascinating narrative through vivid detail, colorful anecdotes, and captivating characters. Here, he has crafted a bold tapestry of Europe and the Middle East in the early sixteenth century, when four legendary rulers towered over the era.

Francis I of France was the personification of the Renaissance, and a highly influential patron of the arts and education. Henry VIII, who was not expected to inherit the throne but embraced the role with gusto, broke...

Treasures from the Sea: Purple Dye and Sea Silk

Hedvig Landenius Enegren & Francesco Meo

Treasures from the Sea: Purple Dye and Sea Silk by Hedvig Landenius Enegren & Francesco MeoPurple dye is extracted from the glands of the molluscs Hexaplex trunculus, Bolinus Brandaris and Stramonita Haemastoma which, through a chemical reaction of photosynthesis, produces hues ranging from dark red to bluish purple colour. The importance of purple dye since ancient times as a status symbol, a sign of royal and religious power is well documented. Less well known is sea silk, a precious fibre derived from the tufts of the pen shell, Pinna nobilis, a UNESCO protected species, with which the mollusc anchors itself to the seabed. These tufts, once cleaned and bleached, take the aspect...
