A 1950s Childhood: From Tin Baths to Bread and Dripping

Paperback
by Feeney, Paul
Do you remember Pathe News? Taking the train to the seaside? The purple stains of iodine on the knees of boys in short trousers? Knitted bathing costumes? Then the chances are you were born in or around 1950. To the young people of today, the 1950s seems like another age. But for those born around then, this era of childhood seems like yesterday.

Hardback
by Sauder, Eric
Lost to a German torpedo on 7 May 1915, Cunard's RMS Lusitania captured the world's imagination when she entered service in 1907.

Lusitania is now sadly remembered for her tragic destruction, sinking in eighteen minutes with the loss of around 1,200 souls. Through never-before-see...

The Little Book of the London Underground

Hardback
by David Long
With 980 million passengers a year, more than 250 miles of track, literally hundreds of different stations and a history stretching back nearly 150 years, the world's oldest underground railway might seem familiar, but actually, how well do you know it? Do you know, for example, who the Queen sat next to when she first went on the Tube in 1939? Or what they did with all the earth dug out to make way for the...

In the Footsteps of William Wallace

Paperback
by Young, Alan
For nearly 700 years debate has raged over the true nature of William Wallace and his role in Scotland's turbulent history. Was he the 'Braveheart' of Blind Harry's legendary account, the bold, but savage hero of the Scottish wars? Or, as some contemporary chroniclers attested, nothing but a villainous thief and vagrant fugitive? This book draws on a wide range of contemporary and modern sources to look beh...

Paperback

Richard III and the Murder in the Tower

Paperback
by PETER HANCOCK
Richard III is accused of murdering his nephews (the 'Princes in the Tower') in order to usurp the throne of England. Since Tudor times he has been painted as the 'black legend', the murderous uncle. However, the truth is much more complicated and interesting. Rather than looking at all the killings Richard III did not commit, this book focuses on the one execution for which we know that he was responsible....

The Wall

Paperback
by Christopher Hilton
For almost three decades, the Cold War was focused on Berlin, where the two (nuclear-armed) sides were kept apart by a twelve-foot wall, which had appeared almost overnight in August 1961. For a generation, until its fall in November 1989, it not only divided the city of Berlin, but also symbolised the confrontation between capitalist West and socialist East. In this astonishing book, journalist Christoph...

Bagels and Bacon

Paperback
by Rozelaar/1
"Bagels & Bacon" is a rites of passage story that will appeal to both young and old. It attempts to shed a largely humorous, but sometimes serious light, on the relations between an ethnic minority and the wider community. Its attitude to Judaism, in particular, and religions in general, is irreverent. The work is also a nostalgic record of growing up in the East End during the postwar period, and attem...
