Island Story

Island Story by J. D. TaylorWhat is life like on this island? With a tent and a rusty bike, J.D. Taylor set off to find out.

No other subject has spilt so much ink as Britain today. But whilst assuming a monopoly on national identity, a London-based elite has proven a poor forecaster of the political weather around the island.

Skeptical and inquisitive, Taylor instead cycled all round Britain, interviewing and staying with strangers from all walks of life. Without a map and travelling with the most basic of gear, the journey revels in serendipity and schadenfreude.

Island Story weaves histories, experiences and ideas to tell...

Going to the Dogs: Greyhound Racing, Animal Activism, and American Popular Culture

Going to the Dogs: Greyhound Racing, Animal Activism, and American Popular Culture by Gwyneth Anne ThayerNorth American Society for Sport History Book Award

In the 1970s sitcom The Odd Couple, Felix and Oscar argue over a racing greyhound that Oscar won in a bet. Animal lover Felix wants to keep the dog as a pet; gambling enthusiast Oscar wants to race it. This dilemma fairly reflects America's attitude toward greyhound racing.
