SPIRIT OF THE WILDERNESS Paul Dutton and Ian Player

Currently Available Paperback | $34.95 978-0-99465-615-5 320 pages | 6 x 9

This is an autobiographical account of a career in conservation and of an abiding love affair with Spirit of the Wilderness, a Piper Super Cub, two-seater, light aircraft. It tells of a partnership between man and machine, which proved invaluable in countless campaigns to support and conserve wildlife and wilderness areas in southern Africa. A chance encounter in 1953 with the late Dr Ian Player, South Africa's greatest name in conservation led to a career in that field which still continues after nearly sixty years. There are detailed and absorbing accounts of stewardship during the 1960s and 1970s of some of South Africa’s best loved and most beautiful reserves; Lake St Lucia, iMfolozi, Ndumo, and later the Gorongosa National Park, Zinave and the Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique. There are tales of hair-raising episodes and some serious mishaps at the wheel of Spirit of the Wilderness, and on the ground, the author records what he was privileged to learn from the knowledge, experience and wisdom of indigenous game guards and local communities in South Africa and Mozambique. We encounter a huge diversity of flora and fauna, both terrestrial and marine, some of it now perilously endangered, and also a remarkable cast of fellow eminent conservationists, filmmakers, writers, sangomas, soldiers and bandits from two wars in Mozambique, and we are introduced to that country's then president Samora Machel, with whom Paul came to have an intriguingly cordial relationship.

Paul Dutton was born in Johannesburg in 1933, and began working in the family's plastics engineering firm before moving into conservation in 1958. He took possession of his Piper Super Cub in 1964. After a few flying lessons, he took to the air to carry out much of his work. His two stints in Mozambique were some of the most rewarding years of his life. These memoirs were compiled over a period of more than twenty years and he is still active as an ecological consultant.

CAN YOU SMELL THE RAIN? A Memoir of Mozambique: From communism and war to democracy and peace - From boardroom intrigue to private islands John Hewlett

Currently Available Paperback | $34.95 978-1-92835-902-9 192 pages | 6 x 9

This is a true African tale of persistence and tenacity. The story of a farmer and pilot raised in colonial Kenya who went on to play an active role in Mozambican politics while leading Lonrho’s foreign investment in that country. This unique memoir describes life during Mozambique’s transition from communism to democracy, from poverty to an investor’s choice. It has been a life creating farms, gold mining and operating hotels through war and peace. Then supporting peasant farmers and developing the conservation of a private tropical island. It is proof that nothing is impossible and Africa offers opportunity to those who persist. It is a personal record of the changes in modern Africa and Mozambique in particular an investor’s destination. It should also be an enjoyable read.

John Hewlett moved to Mozambique in 1985 from Zambia. Mozambique was a Marxist-Leninist poverty stricken lost paradise. This was a life during a vicious civil war which led to democracy and peace. After a Lonrho boardroom coup he left the company. Hewlett went back to basics to invest in small scale farmers and develop a luxury private island. CASEMATE | IPM NEW BOOKS CATALOG  FALL 2017

Navigating the aftershocks still felt of revolution and restoration, and the uneasy relationship between the Puritan settlers and native Indians, proves complex.

MICHELLE L. ELMORE: COME SEE ABOUT ME Michelle L Elmore This collection is titled “Come See About Me,” which has nothing to do with the Holland-Dozier-Holland hit made indelible by the Supremes and everything to do with a line from “I Ate Up the Apple Tree,” the title song of a 1975 album by Dave “Fat Man” Williams, who was once the Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s pianist. You can hear that song at many parades, as Elmore did. But she first learned it from trumpeter James Andrews, who has been called the Satchmo of the Ghetto, in reference to the Tremé neighborhood that Elmore called home for two years.

MICHELLE L. ELMORE: YA HEARD ME Michelle L Elmore “Ya Heard Me,” the third collection in Elmore’s New Orleans trilogy, contains the most recent of her New Orleans photographs. These focus on a rap and bounce scene that extends a rhythmic revolution which began more than a century ago in New Orleans and defines anew the beat for this country’s cutting edge. Elmore focuses squarely on the grills of gold teeth these rappers and bounce artists flash— outlandish and defiant declarations of style within a hostile and threatened environment.

MICHELLE L. ELMORE: LET'S GO GET EM Michelle L Elmore From the start of her photographic journey in New Orleans, Elmore searched for Mardi Gras Indians, those feathered and beaded icons of the city’s African American identity, and perhaps the most mysterious and elemental of all the city’s culture bearers. “Let’s Go Get ‘Em”—the cry of battle in which Indians compete to be the prettiest, and a chant within the ritual enacted whenever they “mask”—denotes the collection of Elmore’s photographs that trace what began as pure fascination with Mardi Gras Indians and grew into lasting friendships that inspired her own artistic ideals.

Elmore began traveling to New Orleans in 1989, fresh from personal loss. A decade later, she was living in the city with her young son Jack Marley, their lives centered around the people and places, the sounds and sights, the rituals and rhythms captured in these frames. She left New Orleans in 2005, after the flood that resulted from the levee failures that followed Hurricane Katrina. She had $69 in the bank, and had lost many of her personal possessions.

EGON ZIPPEL 1987 - 2017 Egon Zippel “When you live in New York it’s unavoidable to see things like graffiti and graffiti stickers,” Zipple says. I noticed his collections of objects and stickers found around New York’s walls and streets. Zipple’s habit of collecting street culture reminded me of artist Dieter Roth. “I keep lots of notebooks of things I see and I apply this research to my work, it’s ever-evolving,” Zipple states. He keeps hundreds of pages of ballpoint pen drawings on small format paper, with text scrawled upon them. “I’m painting logos and I work with them on computers and manipulate them in different ways,” he announced. Currently Available | Paperback | $60 | 978-0-99874-844-3 | 8.5 x 11 Egon Zippel was born in Timişoara, Romania, in 1960 to German parents. When Nicolae Ceauşescu rose to power in 1964, the Zippels presciently left for the Mannheim-Heidelberg region, Germany, to begin life anew. After being a drill sergeant in the German Bundeswehr 1979-1981, Egon studied graphic design at the University of Mannheim, and received a Fulbright Scholarship comprising an introductory month at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and the academic year of 1984-85 at the University of Texas in Austin. Over the next few years, he studied computer graphics at the New York Institute of Technology, and continued with postgraduate studies at the Institute for New Media at the Staedel Art Academy in Frankfurt 1993-1994 under Peter Weibel. During the early '90s Egon also lived part-time in Milan, Italy, until eventually settling again in New York City in 1996. Currently he maintains studios in New York and Berlin. Egon believes in predetermination as well as free will and everything in-between. Wrestling with these contradictions makes life playful and infinitely more complex.

The Unearthing of Sylvia Plath

Trevor Yorke

Gail Crowther and Peter K. Steinberg

From the black and white Tudor cottage with contorted timbers to the colorful Victorian town hall with patterned brickwork, older buildings often inspire investigation and query. Who built them and why, who lived there and what events were witnessed from their windows? Perhaps the first question, before the others can be put into context is ‘how old is the building?’ A lot of key information about age and date can be gleaned from just observing the exterior. By recognizing dateable features it is not hard to begin piecing together a building’s history, and then understand how it developed over the centuries.

Keith Dockray

September 2017 Paperback | $22.99 978-1-78155-624-5 96 pages | 6.50 x 9.25


These Ghostly Archives offers a groundbreaking and unique look at Sylvia Plath studies. Focusing on previously un­ published material found in archives from all around the world, These Ghostly Archives aims to reconstruct the ghostly figure of Plath within our culture via unseen letters, manuscripts, photographs, places and poems. This book approaches archival studies exploring both the practical and experiential work carried out in the archive highlighting the ‘detective’ type work that it involves and the traces left behind from history.

The Sexual Offences Act of 1967 was groundbreaking in the UK and this book marks the fiftieth anniversary of its successful path to the statute book. The act was not without controversy and was fiercely fought over by the likes of Mary Whitehouse and right-wing reactionary Tories who in typical style fought to impose their narrow-minded blue-rinse views. Now, in 2017, Western Europe leads the way in LGBT rights. Keith Dockray charts in a short and pithy manner the difficult path the Bill followed and records those who supported it and were against it.

The Knights Templar did not write about themselves, or keep diaries, so you would be forgiven for thinking there would not be much to know about their everyday lives. However, the records of the Templars’ estates tell us how they lived—Drawing on these records, along with archaeological evidence and the Templars’ own regulations, Helen Nicholson sets out to reconstruct how the Templars lived from day to day, in both the Middle East and Western Europe. The result is a fascinating insight into the everyday lives of these pious men, who were not powerful nobles or churchmen, yet held great influence in medieval Europe.

ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA Song by Song John Van der Kiste ELO (The Electric Light Orchestra) were devised by Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne of The Move as a fusion of rock and contemporary classical-style music, combining orchestral instruments, guitars, keyboards and drums in the same lineup. This book provides a comprehensive examination of all the group’s studio albums. Their aim was to continue from where The Beatles’ ‘I Am The Walrus’ left off. After the release of their debut eponymous album in 1971 and a few live dates at home and in Europe, it became increasingly apparent that both leaders’ objectives were incompatible. Wood left Lynne in charge of the group to refine their sound, gradually giving way to a more accessible style. July 2017 | Paperback | $24.95 | 978-1-78155-600-9 | 144 pages | 6.15 x 9.25

WE CAN SWING TOGETHER The Story of Lindisfarne John Van der Kiste When singer-songwriter Alan Hull joined the group Brethren in 1969, and they were renamed Lindisfarne shortly afterwards, nobody could have foreseen that the name would still be around more than forty years later. It has been a chequered saga for them, from their origins in the beat and folk boom of their teenage years, to their swiftly won reputation as one of Britain’s most popular live attractions and the remarkable success of the chart-topping second album ‘Fog on the Tyne’. This tells the story of the ups and downs of their long and colorful history, and the singles, albums and concerts that made them a unique name in popular music history.

PINK FLOYD Song by Song Andrew Wild

Pink Floyd Song by Song takes a fresh look at the songs which led to Pink Floyd becoming the third best-selling band of all time. From ‘Arnold Layne’ to ‘Louder Than Words’, Pink Floyd wrote about anger, isolation, regret, dismay, and fear. These themes, not always obvious starting points in popular music, were married to a rare dynamism in rock music. Pink Floyd’s most successful period critically and musically—the eight albums from 1970 to 1983—combine the pithy lyrics of Roger Waters, the soulful voice and breathtaking guitar solos of David Gilmour and, until 1979, the jazz influenced piano and keyboard abilities of the late Richard Wright. These three together wrote the band’s best work, usually in combinations of twos and threes but also individually. When working together as equals, the three principals of Pink Floyd were significantly more than the sum of their individual strengths. July 2017 | Paperback | $24.95 | 978-1-78155-599-6 | 144 pages | 6.15 x 9.25 Andrew Wild first heard Pink Floyd as an impressionable sixteen-year-old in 1983 and cites the lyrics of Roger Waters as one of his earliest influences as a writer.

Hélène was a strong-willed princess, raised in France but closely connected with the court of Queen Victoria. After the premature end to a romance with Victoria’s grandson, she married into the royal family of Italy. Her taste for adventure led her around the world, though her strong Italian nationalism brought her back in support of Mussolini. When the country voted to become a republic in 1946, Hélène was the only member of the royal family allowed to remain in Italy with her second ‘secret’ husband.

Edward Hanson trained and worked as an historian in his native Boston, Massachusetts, before moving to England, and taking ordination in the Church of England. Now retired, he has turned to his historical work.

Evelina van Millingen Pisani was a modern woman in the age of Queen Victoria. While visiting Venice, this striking beauty of twenty-two met and married the wealthy Count Pisani. Evelina became an exotic star in the firmament of wealthy American and English socialites, artists, and writers, for whom the artistic decadence of Venice was an antidote to the factories, materialism, and homophobic laws they saw at home. When her husband suddenly died, the grieving countess unexpectedly found herself saddled with his mortgage debts, forcing her to take life into her own hands, building an English garden and creating a model farm for hundreds of tenant farmers.

Judith Harris is the author of Pompeii Awakened, A Story of Rediscovery, and of The Monster in the Closet. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, she is a graduate of Northwestern University, Evanston.

This is a much-needed analysis of how women behaved in Greek society, how they were regarded, and the restrictions imposed on their actions. Given that ancient Greece was very much a man’s world, most books on ancient Greek society still tend to focus on men; this book redresses the imbalance by shining the spotlight on that neglected other half: women had significant roles to play in Greek society and culture—this book illuminates those roles. Chrystal asks the controversial question: how far is the assumption that women were secluded and excluded just an illusion?

A vibrant, accessible social history of Rome, from 753 BCE to the fall of the Empire some 1300 years later. To support its findings the book features hundreds of translations of inscriptions and graffiti from original authors—Roman, Greek and Jewish—and evidence culled from the visual arts, curse tablets, official records and letters both private and official. Each comes with detailed commentaries, placing them into social and historical context. The result is a fascinating survey of how Roman men, women and children lived their lives on a daily basis taking in marriage, slavery, gladiators, country life and city life.

Covering most of the railways of Shropshire and following the River Severn down to the Bewdley area, this evocative book largely uses the photographs taken by the author and his father on their travels from the late 50s until the end of Steam in the late 1960s. Compiled here for the first time, these rare photographs have largely never been seen before.

This book features photographs taken by researcher/author Dr B. W. L. Brooksbank and captions by railway author Peter Tuffrey. The photographs span the last years of steam traction c. 1946 to c.1962 and the book uses the M25 motorway as a as a perimeter to define the London area. 250 photographs have been selected for inclusion to give a real indication of this last gasp of steam.

A Thames Estuary Sailor's View


Nick Ardley

Garth Cameron

Many people say that Nick Ardley is a bit of an eccentric, or an anachronism from a simpler age, for the way he sails his clinker sloop around the Thames estuary, wending among the tide-riddled marshes to drop anchor where the fancy takes him. Here he offers a reflective journey between the Pools of Rochester and London, a path once of commerce, but now pleasure.

After a much anticipated expedition to the Arctic, the Italia was to disappear on its return from Greenland on 25 May 1928. The expedition had geographical and scientific aims, but the political environment was also an important motivator. This is the story of the search for Nobile, the Italia, and the crew, and the many men from many countries who searched for them.

A Tradition of Cornish Boatbuilding


Peter Bodle

Elizabeth Rees

Pasco’s Boatyard started in 1771. When it was sold to new owners Craig Brown and Chris De Glanville in 2013, one of their aims was to preserve the traditions of wooden boats in the St Just Creek, and to foster the shipwright skills required to build and maintain them. This book traces that committment and follows the build of the new P23.

Most books about Celtic saints are based on their legendary medieval lives. This book, however, focuses on the sites where these early Christians lived and worked. Archaeology, combined with early inscriptions and texts, offers us important clues which help us to piece together something of the fascinating world of early Christianity.

West Ham United in Europe

Ralph Oates

Brian Belton

The only British-born boxer to have won the world heavyweight crown was Bob Fitzsimmons, who reigned from 1897–1899. Since then, a host of challengers had unsuccessfully attempted to duplicate Fitzsimmons’success and bring the championship. When Frank Bruno emerged, followed later by Lennox Lewis, it appeared that Britain finally had two fighters who could compete with the elite in the division, succeed where others had failed, and win the big prize. Bruno and Lewis: The Boxing Years gives an account on how these two fighters changed the global image of British heavyweights by their respective successes inside the square ring. The road to the top was not always easy, and both men had to overcome setbacks along the way. The pair eventually clashed in an exciting historical contest in 1993—a fight which pitted two Britons against each other to contest the world heavyweight crown for the first time.

From the earliest days of West Ham United the club sought out competition from outside the British Isles. Building on this, the Hammers, led by England captain Bobby Moore, won their way into top class competition in Europe to become the first side made up entirely of English players to win a major international trophy: the European Cup Winners Cup in 1965 at Wembley. Although this was to be the zenith of the team’s performance on the international stage, there were to be further exciting and intriguing campaigns and games—great goals, magnificent victories, and defeats fought to the finish. Belton brings us the compelling story of their path to glory.

KARL HAGEDORN (1889-1969)

November 2017 Paperback | $35 978-0-99308-847-6 176 pages | 8.5 x 10.6

Originating from Berlin Hagedorn moved to Manchester in 1905 to train in textile production. Having studied art under Adolphe Valette at the local Manchester School ofArt and then The Slade School of Art, his training was completed by a period in191213 where, working under Maurice Denis, he absorbed a range of avant-garde styles. On his return to England, he made a consciously pioneering attempt to introduce Modernism into Manchester through his work as both painter and designer, exhibiting at the Manchester Society of Modern Painters, RA, RBA, RSMA and with the NEAC.. He became a British subject in 1914 and served as a Lance-Corporal in the Middlesex Regiment during World War I. In 1925 he received the Grand Prix at the International Exhibition of Decorative Art, Paris and in 1935 he was elected RBA. He exhibited at a number of leading galleries in London and the provinces, and was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, the Royal Society of Marine Artists, the New English Art Club and the NS. Hagedorn has only been the subject of one exhibition and publication: ‘Manchester’s First Modernist’, a catalogue produced by the Chris Beetles Gallery on the occasion of the retrospective organized in conjunction with the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.

DAVID EVANS (1929-1988) Paul Liss, Pete Gage and Alistair Hicks

September 2017 Paperback | $35 978-0-99308-846-9 192 pages | 8.5 x 10.6

David Evans’ death in a road accident in 1988, at the age of 59, bought to an abrupt end the career of one of the most distinguished watercolorists of his generation. The recent discovery of pictures remaining in his studio, nearly thirty years after the memorial tribute staged by the Redfern Gallery in 1988, provides the opportunity for a new generation to discover his work, though the publication of this first ever book on David Evans and the accompanying touring exhibition. Evans’ strikingly large watercolors, (typically they measure over one meter in height or breadth), span two decades from the late 1960s to the late 1980s, evoking a vision that is still surprisingly potent today. They have all the period charm of the glam rock era they so powerfully evoke but at the same time they are highly charged with the political energy of the period and mirror Thatcher’s Britain, with its Industrial unrest, its towns and country undergoing transformation, the Faulklands war and threat of the Evil Empire, the building of nuclear power stations and the dawn of awareness about Climate Change as a political issue. Evans was an ardent campaigner and environmentalist. The landscapes, (a homage to his native Suffolk) are peppered with industrial plants, landfill, scrap heaps, and encroaching roads and army maneuvers. Urban subjects, similar in some ways to the compositions of Lowry, show factory plants, spectators’ sports, cafeterias, the interiors of museums, city centers and beach scenes.

Born in Stafford in 1965, Paul Liss is a fine art dealer and exhibition organiser. He joined Sotheby’s as a Bursary student prior to working for Hazlitt, Gooden & Fox. He has created numerous catalogues/exhibtions such as Stanley Lewis (Cecil Higgens, 2010), Alan Sorrell (John Soane Museum, 2013) Evelyn Dunbar (Pallant House, 2015), WWI and WWII (Morley Gallery London, 2014 and 2016).

Stuart Laing

Primrose Arnander, MarieHelene Claudel-Gilly and Katherine Lamb Continuing the popular series of proverbs from around the world, each paired with an English equivalent, Don’t Toss Granny in the Begonias sheds an amusing and often intriguing light on the rivalry between the French and the English: an odd couple who, from time immemorial, like to dislike – or is it dislike liking? – each other. How curious that the French say, ‘Filer à l’anglaise’, while the English insist on taking French leave. Fortunately, old enemies make the best friends, and Don’t Toss Granny in the Begonias highlights the many similarities between the cultures. Witness ‘Porter l’eau à la rivière’ and ‘To carry coals to Newcastle’, or ‘Quand le chat n’est pas là, les souris dansent’ – dancing mice as opposed to their English rat counterparts, who play in the cat’s absence.


Academics hail it as the beginning of modernism, but to readers around the world-even those daunted by MobyDick--Bartleby the Scrivener is simply one of the most absorbing and moving novellas ever. Set in the mid-19th century on New York City’s Wall Street, it was also, perhaps, Herman Melville’s most prescient story: what if a young man caught up in the rat race of commerce finally just said, “I would prefer not to”?

Tippu Tip, notorious to some, intriguing to others, was a Zanzibari Arab trader living in the turbulent and rapidly changing Africa of the late 19th century. This biography transports the reader into his extraordinary world, describing its exotic cast of characters and the principal factors that shaped it. His colorful life culminated in his engagement as governor of a province in the ‘Congo Free State’ of the Belgian King Leopold, and in his involvement in Stanley’s astonishing expedition to relieve Emin Pasha, governor of the Egyptian southern province of Equatoria. This book is the first thorough investigation in English of this significant figure. The lucid narrative unfolds against the political and economic backdrop of European and American commercial aims, while allowing the reader to see the period through African and Arab eyes.

For many, the business agenda is so all-consuming and modern creature comforts so extensive that they can spend months, even years, in the UAE without understanding anything about the region’s history and culture. But that attitude may be about to change. The government is vigorously promoting its culture and heritage, encouraging Emiratis, residents and tourists to visit cultural sites. Historic buildings are being renovated and opened up to the public. Meanwhile, international students are becoming increasingly interested in the region, and not just for its record-breaking buildings and economic success. Lavishly illustrated with photographs of people and places not on the tourist trail, the book offers younger audiences a wealth of information in an easy, accessible manner, and an invaluable resource to schools and teachers.

Francesca Affleck is a teacher who has lived in Dubai since 2007, and has two children who have spent four years each in UAE schools and has previously lived in India, Hong Kong England, Pakistan and Oman.

DEEPER THAN INDIGO Tracing Thomas Machell, forgotten explorer Jenny Balfour Paul

August 2017 Paperback | $12.99 978-1-90933-956-9 326 pages | 5 x 8

The author’s quest begins when the word ‘indigo’ draws her to the illustrated journals, now in the British Library, of Victorian explorer Thomas Machell. She finds her life to have striking echoes of his, not least his travels to and within India, a career in indigo, and a passion for journal writing. He spent most of his adult life in India; the author follows him to indigo plantations of rural Bengal and Bangladesh, to coffee estates in Kerala’s Malabar Hills, to unexplored regions of central India and to the city of Calcutta. This remarkable tale of East-West connections brings to life the untold story of a spirited outsider at the height of the British Raj. Serendipity, intuition and an enchanting relationship, as well as the author’s quest to uncover the missing years of Machell’s life, give this book its magical extra dimension.

Jenny Balfour Paul is a writer, artist, international lecturer and intrepid traveller, she is the author of two books on Indigo, and numerous other writings.

Emirates Diaries tells the story of how Peter came to love the Emirates and its people. He got to know Abu Dhabi sheiks and Dubai merchants and people at every level of society. The country was on the cusp of enormous economic expansion and this book is an affectionate picture of the Emirates when it was still like a chain of large informal villages. Emirates Diaries tells of opera in Ras Al Khaimah, how Shakespeare was brought to large audiences of young people, how to organize a royal visit, an outbreak of foot and mouth disease among the oryx in the Al Ain zoo, the culture of camel racing and an unpaid bill left by Margaret Thatcher. The diaries sparkle with mischievous humor and acute observation. This book is a prequel to Peter Clark’s Damascus Diaries: Life under the Assads, described by The Economist as ‘quirky, digressive and indiscreet’.

Dr Peter Clark obe is a writer, translator and a travel and cultural consultant. He has known, travelled, worked and lived in the Middle East for over 50 years, and has translated eight books from the Arabic. 24

Many remember this festival as a magical, life-changing experience, encapsulating the sixties trip of sex, drugs, rock’n’roll and a political yearning for a better world.

William Henry Hunt was one of the most admired watercolorists of the 19th century. Better known as ‘Bird’s Nest Hunt’ for his intricate still lives of flowers, fruit and birds’ eggs, he exhibited prolifically at the Old Water Colour Society. His works were sought after by collectors, notably John Ruskin, a serious champion of his work.’ This book accompanies an exhibition that will be the first to investigate the depiction of rural figures by one of the most admired British watercolorists of the 19th century, William Henry Hunt.

His ability to capture in paint the character, humanity and emotion of his sitters is the hallmark of Soutine’s greatest work. This publication will bring together the most comprehensive group of these portraits. It will be a unique opportunity to experience the power and profound emotion of Soutine’s art.

If nature is understood to be original, then the garden is an ordered but un-orderly condition; a re ordered vision of the natural order, a vision of nature disciplined by human action in a attempt to advance and yield control.

Dick Kirby

September 2017 Paperback | $19.99 978-1-47389-476-1 208 pages | 6 x 9

The 1950s and 1960s saw a changing of the guard in London’s gangland. A new and even more ruthless breed of criminal emerged to replace the aging generation of likes of Sabini, Mullins and Hayes. Protection rackets on bookies, club owners and shops were commonplace. Prostitution and drugs offered rich pickings. Police corruption was all too commonplace. For a thrilling and shocking story London’s Gangs at War is in a class of its own. What makes it so chilling is that the murders, torture and mayhem actually happened.

Daughter of Charles I

Theatrical Gossip

Melanie Clegg

Nell Darby

Henrietta Anne Stuart, youngest child of Charles I and Henrietta Maria, was born in June 1644 in the besieged city of Exeter at the very height of the English Civil War. The hostilities had separated her parents and her mother was on the run from Parliamentary forces when she gave birth with only a few attendants on hand to give her support.

The expansion of the press in Victorian Britain meant more pages to be filled, and more stories to be found. Life on the Victorian Stage: Theatrical Gossip looks at how the everyday lives of Victorian performers and managers were used for such a purpose, with the British newspapers covering the good, the bad and the ugly side of life on the stage during the nineteenth century.

With a perceptive approach, Ribbons Among the Rajahs considers all aspects of women’s lives in India, from the original discomfort of traversing the globe and the complexities of arrival through to creating a home in a tight-knight settlement community. It considers, too, the effects of the subservience of women to the needs of men and argues for the greater fusion of European cultures that existed prior to imperial times.

1 July 1997 marked the end of British rule of Hong Kong, whereby this territory was passed into the hands of the People’s Republic of China. In 1992, Chris Patten, former chairman of the Conservative Party, was appointed Hong Kong's last governor. Drawing on the insights of a host of senior figures, the author places the crisis in both its human and historical contexts, and presents some startling arguments about the conduct of British foreign policy on Hong Kong before and during Patten’s tenure.

The Epic Struggle for Justice and Freedom

Julian Whitehead

Alan Gallop

Dangerous Treasons describes the sinister and murky world of espionage, plots and treason in the Restoration period, with former intelligence officer and security adviser Julian Whitehead telling the darker side of the Merry Monarch’s reign. Charles survived plots and rebellions with a mixture of guile, espionage, propaganda, covert operations and military oppression.

GOD’S CITY: BYZANTINE CONSTANTINOPLE Nic Fields Byzantium. Was it Greek or Roman, familiar or hybrid, barbaric or civilized, Oriental or Western? In the late eleventh century Constantinople was the largest and wealthiest city in Christendom, the seat of the Byzantine emperor, Christ’s vice-regent on earth, and the center of a predominately Christian empire, steeped in Greek cultural and artistic influences, yet founded and maintained by a Roman legal and administrative system. Despite the amalgam of Greek and Roman influences, however, its language and culture was definitely Greek. Constantinople truly was the capital of the Roman empire in the East, and from its founding under the first Constantinus to its fall under the eleventh and last Constantinus the inhabitants always called themselves Romaioi, Romans, not Hellênikés, Greeks. October 2017 | Hardback | $39.95 | 978-1-47389-508-9 | 288 pages | 6 x 9 Dr Nic Fields started his career as a biochemist before joining the Royal Marines. Having left the military, he went back to university and completed his doctorate in Ancient History at the University of Newcastle. He was Assistant Director of the British School at Athens, then a lecturer in Ancient History at the University of Edinburgh. He is now a freelance author and researcher based in southwest France, specializing in ancient military history.

KINGS AND KINGSHIP IN THE HELLENISTIC WORLD 350 - 30 BC John D Grainger Between c.350 BC and 30 BC the Mediterranean world was one in which kings ruled. The exceptions were the Greek cities and Roman Italy. But for most of that period neither of these republican areas was central to events. For the crucial centuries between Alexander the Great and the Roman conquest of Macedon, the political running was made by kings, and it is their work and loves and experience which is the subject here. Rome's expansion extinguished a series of monarchies and pushed back the area which was ruled by kings for a time, but the process of building a republican empire eventually rebounded on the city, and the Romans empire came to be ruled by an emperor who was in fact a facsimile of a Hellenistic king. John Grainger takes a thematic approach, considering various aspects of Hellenistic kingship in turn. This allows him to highlight the common features as well as the differences across the various dynasties. November 2017 | Hardback | $44.95 | 978-1-47386-375-0 | 272 pages | 6 x 9 John D Grainger is a former teacher and historian of great experience, with a particular interest in the Classical and Hellenistic Greek periods. His works include: Hellenistic and Roman Naval Wars (2011), The Wars of the Maccabees (2012), Traditional Enemies (2012); Roman Conquests: Egpyt and Judaea (2013).

RELIGION & CLASSICAL WARFARE Archaic and Classical Greece Matthew Dillon, Christopher Matthew and Michael Schmitz Religion was integral to the conduct of war in the ancient world and the Greeks were certainly no exception. No campaign was undertaken, no battle risked, without first making sacrifice to propitiate the appropriate gods (such as Ares, god of War) or consulting oracles and omens to divine their plans. Yet the link between war and religion is an area that has been regularly overlooked by modern scholars examining the conflicts of these times. This volume addresses that omission by drawing together the work of experts from across the globe. The chapters have been carefully structured by the editors so that this wide array of scholarship combines to give a coherent, comprehensive study of the role of religion in the wars of the Archaic and Classical Greek world. Aspects considered in depth will include: Greek writers on religion and war; declarations of war; fate and predestination, the sphagia and pre-battle sacrifices; omens, oracles and portents, trophies and dedications to cult centers; militarized deities; sacred truces and festivals; oaths and vows; religion & Greek military medicine.

EMPEROR ALEXANDER SEVERUS Rome's Age of Insurrection, AD222-235 John S McHugh

September 2017 Hardback | $39.95 978-1-47384-581-7 336 pages | 6 x 9

Alexander Severus' is full of controversy and contradictions. He came to the throne through the brutal murder of his cousin, Elagabalus, and was ultimately assassinated himself. The years between were filled with regular uprisings and rebellions, court intrigue (the Praetorian Guard slew their commander at the Emperor's feet) and foreign invasion. Yet the ancient sources generally present his reign as a golden age of just government, prosperity and religious tolerance. Not yet fourteen when he became emperor, Alexander was dominated by his mother, Julia Mammaea and advisors like the historian, Cassius Dio. In the military field, he successfully checked the aggressive Sassanid Persians but some sources see his Persian campaign as a costly failure marked by mutiny and reverses that weakened the army. When Germanic and Sarmatian tribes crossed the Rhine and Danube frontiers in 234, Alexander took the field against them but when he attempted to negotiate to buy time, his soldiers perceived him as weak, assassinated him and replaced him with the soldier Maximinus Thrax. John McHugh reassesses this fascinating emperor in detail.

John S McHugh has a BA and MA in Ancient History. His love of the ancient world has led him to travel to many classical sites. He is currently an Assistant Headmaster at a secondary school in Bolton. He is the co-author of a text book on Boltons connections with the slave trade and is currently assisting Bolton Museum with a project to record the oral history of the local populace with the aim of promoting understanding between people of different generations or ethnic and social backgrounds.

GAIUS MARIUS The Rise and Fall of Rome's Saviour Marc Hyden

September 2017 Hardback | $39.95 978-1-52670-233-3 344 pages | 6 x 9

Gaius Marius was one of the most remarkable and important figures of the late Roman Republic. At a time when power tended to be the reserve of a restricted clique of families, he rose from relatively humble origins to attain the top office of consul. Better yet, he went on to hold the post an unprecedented seven times. This political career was built on military success. First serving in the Numantine War in Spain, he rose to high command and brought a long-running war in North Africa to a successful conclusion, bringing the Numidian King Jurgurtha back in chains. His return was timely as Germanic tribes threatened Italy and had defeated several Roman armies. Marius reformed and retrained the Roman forces and decisively defeated the invaders. His subsequent career was dominated by his rivalry with his erstwhile subordinate, Sulla and led ultimately to Sulla’s bloody coup. Marius, once hailed as the savior of Rome, became a desperate fugitive, literally running and hiding from his pursuers until he was eventually hunted down and ignominiously slain.

Marc Hyden is a professional lobbyist (for reform of the death penalty) and media spokesman. He has a longstanding personal obsession with ancient Rome and has had numerous articles published on various aspects of its history.

Many 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. In Post-War Childhood, Simon Webb examines the facts and figures behind the myth of children’s carefree lives in the postwar years, finding that such things as the freedom to roam the streets and fields came at a terrible price.

Simon Webb is the author of a number of non-fiction books, ranging from academic works on education to popular history. He works as a consultant on the subject of capital punishment to television companies and filmmakers and also writes for various magazines. 36

What image does the word ‘orphanage’ conjure up in your mind? A sunny scene of carefree children at play in the grounds of a large ivy-clad house? Or a forbidding grey edifice whose cowering inmates were ruled over with a rod of iron by a stern, starched matron? In Children's Homes, Peter Higginbotham explores the history of the institutions in Britain that were used as a substitute for children’s ‘natural’ home, from the Tudor times to the present day.

Peter Higginbotham is an established author, best known for his work on the workhouse through six books (The Workhouse Encyclopedia, Grim Almanac of the Workhouse, Workhouse Cookbook etc.). His website is

SAME SEX LOVE 1700-1957 A History and Research Guide Gill Rossini

October 2017 Paperback | $19.95 978-1-47385-423-9 256 pages | 6 x 9

Family history is often seen as the stories of people who were part of a traditional family unit, married to someone of the opposite gender, had children and lived their lives as 'normally' as possible. But what of the relatives who could not accept that this was the life for them, and were attracted to same-sex partners? Was it possible for them to live their life as they wished to, with their chosen partner and without hindrance, ridicule or attack? Would they be breaking the law in doing so, and how would family and society react if they were found out? Some of those concerned married and had children, like the majority, and buried their feelings in the bustle of everyday life; others stayed single but abstained from relationships altogether, as a way of keeping safe. A number managed to live openly and proudly as themselves, challenging the prejudices and misconceptions of the day. This is the story of all those people, the brave, the discreet, the frightened, the loving and the loved, as well as love against all the odds; more than likely, it is a story that can be found in every family history. Told in an empathetic and clear-sighted way, this is the first history of same-sex relationships aimed specifically at family historians and offers valuable insights into the lives of those who were often seen as outcasts. It includes research guidance for genealogists researching this often-neglected aspect of family history, and offers invaluable insights into the families, society and culture they lived in.

MALADIES AND MEDICINE Exploring Health and Healing, 1540 - 1740 Jennifer Evans and Sara Read

October 2017 Paperback | $24.95 978-1-47387-571-5 224 pages | 6 x 9

Maladies and Medicine offers a lively exploration of health and medical cures in early modern England. The introduction sets out the background in which the body was understood, covering the theory of the four humors and the ways that male and female bodies were conceptualized. It also explains the hierarchy of healers from university trained physicians, to the itinerant women healers who traveled the country offering cures based on inherited knowledge of homemade remedies. It covers the print explosion of medical health guides, which began to appear in the sixteenth century from more academic medical text books to cheap almanacs. The book has twenty chapters covering attitudes towards, and explanations of some of, the most common diseases and medical conditions in the period and the ways people understood them, along with the steps people took to get better. It explores the body from head to toe, from migraines to gout. It was an era when tooth cavities were thought to be caused by tiny worms and smallpox by an inflammation of the blood, and cures ranged from herbal potions, cooling cordials, blistering the skin, and of course letting blood. Case studies and personal anecdotes taken from doctors notes, personal journals, diaries, letters and even court records show the reactions of individuals to their illnesses and treatments, bringing the reader into close proximity with people who lived around 400 years ago. This fascinating and richly illustrated study will appeal to anyone curious about the history of the body and the way our ancestors lived. F17 | PageNumber 37 | Placement B | Template J

FATAL EVIDENCE Professor Alfred Swaine Taylor & the Dawn of Forensic Science Helen Barrell A surgeon and chemist at Guy’s Hospital in London, Professor Alfred Swaine Taylor used new techniques to search the human body for evidence that once had been unseen. As well as tracing poisons, he could identify blood on clothing and weapons, and used hair and fiber analysis to catch killers. Taylor is perhaps best remembered as an expert witness at one of Victorian England’s most infamous trials – that of William Palmer, ‘The Rugeley Poisoner’. But he was involved in many other intriguing cases, from a skeleton in a carpet bag to a fire that nearly destroyed two towns, and several poisonings in between. Taylor wrote widely on forensic medicine. He gave Charles Dickens a tour of his laboratory, and Wilkie Collins owned copies of his books.

CRIME, CLEMENCY AND CONSEQUENCE IN BRITAIN 1821 - 1839 A Slice of Criminal Life Alison Eatwell From the woman who steals a cloak, to the highwayman and the middle-class forger, this book allows us a glimpse of the rich mix of criminals, their crimes and sentences, in early 19th Century Britain. With no statutory right of appeal against either the verdict or sentence at this time, the prisoner's only hope for relief was to petition the Crown for mercy via the Home Office. As cases are followed in this book, some far beyond the Home Secretary’s decision, the criminals, supporters, prosecutors and judiciary are brought to life, occasionally with surprising results. Read as individual cases, each subject is fascinating; viewed together, the collection reveals a unique, intimate and vivid insight in to life in 1820s and 1830s Britain. December 2017 | Paperback | $24.95 | 978-1-47383-031-8 | 192 pages | 6 x 9 Educated at both Warwick and London University (Bedford College), Alison spent many years working for BBC Television before becoming a writer.

MORTAL WOUNDS The Human Skeleton as Evidence for Conflict in the Past Martin Smith Martin J Smith argues that the study of human remains is the purest, most reliable and unbiased source of evidence for the reality of conflict in the past. He outlines its value to the new science of Battlefield Archaeology and the wider understanding of historical conflict. He outlines the processes used in examining osteological remains to unlock the clues about what the combatants endured. Drawing on case studies spanning the millennia, the author shows how skeletal remains can often tell us, in chilling detail, exactly what a warrior suffered in his final moments. This enriches our understanding of the human experience of battle as well as providing scientific data on the data on the effects of various weapons on the human body.

Ninety percent of the worlds megafauna – its larger creatures – has disappeared since humans migrated from Africa and fanned out across Eurasia and the rest of the world. The human tide triggered extinctions and massive habitat destruction across every continent and island – with one exception: Africa. This book describes the history and extent of human impact on the world’s wildlife (marine included) and the roles played by hunters, past and present, good and bad. In particular it examines the status of wildlife in Africa, the world’s last great megafaunal sanctuary.

A book that outlines the top 50 birding spots in Kenya. Each site is structured in the same way according to key headings: overview ; location; visitor info; habitat; key species; where to see what at that site, and other wildlife. The book will appeal to local birders and tourists. For the very first time, local and international birders will have a detailed guide to Kenya’s best birding sites, which will help them to locate the key species in each area, including sought-after ‘specials’ and endemics. It offers a map for each site with specific guidance on where to look for particular birds.

Elephants are arguably Africa’s most charismatic animals, and among the biggest drawcards to our game reserves. While the burgeoning game-park industry may be increasing our access to these magnificent creatures, rising human-elephant encounters are an inevitable outcome – sometimes, sadly, fatal. Such encounters could likely have been avoided had those involved understood elephant behaviour. This is an essential guide for those planning visits to reserves: aside from the interest factor, being able to read the tell-tale signs may just save lives.

The true story of a Great White Shark’s journey into history

George Branch and Margo Branch

Richard Peirce

Living Shores is a pivotal work on southern Africa’s shores and oceans, published originally in 1981. This comprehensively revised edition will now be published across two volumes. Volume 1 deals with coastal habitats – sea; rocky shores; sandy beaches; kelp beds; estuaries; open sea – and with marine management. Volume 2 will deal with the numerous animal and plants groups that inhabit these different ecosystems. Highly regarded and widely used in the academic and scientific worlds, this book, with its lively, fascinating text and multiple colour images will also appeal to lay enthusiasts.

On 7 November 2003 a female 3.8-metre great white shark was tagged near Dyer Island in South Africa. On 28 February 2004, her tag released itself 37km south of the Exmouth Gulf in Western Australia. The shark, which would later be named Nicole after Nicole Kidman, had swum an epic 11,000 km on her transocean journey. This story incorporates a mix of science and actual events with conjecture as to what might have happened on the shark’s journey.

Richard Peirce is best known as a shark conservationist – his main focus for over 20 years. Chairman of the Shark Conservation Society and the Shark Trust, he has authored several books on the topic. He has also authored books on rhino poaching (Poacher's Moon) and elephants kept in captivity (Giant Steps). 46

Softness of the Lime is a captivating love story about a Dutch slave owner, Geert, and his slave, Lena, set in the 1700s in the Cape Colony. This is a compelling account of degrees of love in a hostile landscape. It captures the appalling losses, isolation and scarred hearts of slaves, and it tells of traditions old and emerging, at a time when competition for ownership of almost everything in the Cape was at its peak. Spanning more than eighty years, the novel concludes in 1854, twenty years after the abolition of slavery in the Cape Colony.

Cheetah boasts that, because he can run faster than any other animal, he is the real king of the beasts. Winning a race against the other animals only reinforces his posturing. He boasts that he can even run faster than the wind. The wind takes up the challenge, leading to an outcome that keeps cheetah’s tears running down his cheeks as a permanent reminder of his place in the natural world. This is a story that warns of the perils of boasting, yet shows that the capacity to accept defeat with grace and humility can lead to reconciliation and acceptance.

THE LONG WAVE Tom Dreyer In the wake of his father’s death, Gilbert du Toit begins to see rays of light and schools of fish streaking through the air. He believes that these visions are sending him a message, and sets off to follow his peculiar guides across the vastness of the Great Karoo. But a journey that begins with a sense of purpose soon deteriorates into a manic and unpredictable expedition. When Gilbert’s path crosses that of the Howlers, a trio of ex-convicts touring the country armed with violin, trumpet and guitar, he is steered to dinosaur parks and backroad bars in the South African hinterland. Yet, as his travels continue, it becomes clear that his past cannot be outpaced so easily. A love affair in Kuils River offers respite, but in the end Gilbert must confront the question: what is the message of the signs he sees all around him? In glimmering prose infused with humour and pathos, Tom Dreyer’s The Long Wave is a tale of transformation, friendship and the mystery at the heart of ordinary life.

THE QUIET MAVERICK Daryl Ilbury On 5 February 2014, world-renowned scientist Tim Noakes fired off a tweet allegedly dispensing dietary advice to a young mother into a highly volatile media space; the fallout threatened to destroy his career.

It looks at his views on liberalism, apartheid, socialism, sanctions, trade unions, education, geopolitics, the press and the legacy of Cecil John Rhodes.

THE MAN WHO FOUNDED THE ANC A Biography of Pixley ka Isaka Seme Bongani Ngqulunga It is well known that the African National Congress was formed in 1912 and is considered the oldest political organisation on the African continent. What is often not widely known is that the person who founded it was one Pixley ka Isaka Seme, a thirty-yearold black South African from Inanda outside the city of Durban. What is remarkable about Seme’s achievement in founding the ANC is not only that he succeeded where most had failed at forging black political unity. It is also the speed at which he did it. He had just returned to South Africa from the United Kingdom and the United States of America, where he had been a student since he was a teenager. In slightly over a year the founding conference of the ANC was convened and he was at its helm.

After working at the Policy Unit in the Presidency, he currently serves as the chief of staff and spokesperson of the President of the Republic of South Africa.

DREAMS, BETRAYAL AND HOPE Mamphela Ramphele Systematically since 1994 the ANC government has betrayed the dream of democracy. A dream that imagined equality, the end of poverty, a thriving economy, and a just and prosperous future for all. Most devastatingly this betrayal can be seen in the failure of educational institutions to develop the talents and skills of the young generations. The country needs to hope again. In this searing critique of what’s gone wrong in the public and private sectors, Mamphela Ramphele turns to the tenets of black consciousness and argues for an ‘emotional settlement’ to heal the trauma of colonialism and apartheid that still ravages both black and white communities. Emotional settlement would unlock empathy for others and unleash the potential of all citizens to work together for a ‘socio-economic settlement’ to promote social justice and equality for all. It is time,’ she says, ‘to reimagine the country and its future. We owe this to our children’s children. We dare not fail.’ F17 | PageNumber 49 | Placement C | Template I

JOHN GOLDING Finding the Absolute Dr Charlotte de Mille

John Golding: Finding the Absolute, focusing on Golding’s abstract paintings from the 1960s, offers a unique opportunity to appreciate Golding at the outset of his lifelong pursuit to realize the ever-elusive promise of the absolute through abstraction. These works, most of which have not been seen for nearly half a century, are dynamic, youthful, brimming with the influences of the great exponents of abstraction – Mondrian, Malevich, Pollock, Newman – and palpably created through the artistic language of the 1960s, the decade of swinging Pop and artistic revolution. First published to accompany Piano Nobile's exhibition, John Golding: Finding the Absolute, which ran in conjunction with the Kings Place music program focusing on Minimalist music, curator and author Dr Charlotte de Mille addresses the overlaps between music and art in Golding's early works. John Golding’s paintings from the mid 1960s focus on questions of form, scale and materiality and illustrate the excitement of innovation and exploration of the mid 1960s.

PETER SALTER: DRAWING WALMER YARD Peter Salter and Fenella Collingridge Published to accompany the exhibition Peter Salter: Drawing Walmer Yard at Piano Nobile marking the launch of Peter Salter's first residential building in Britain, this fully illustrated catalogue presents a selection of Salter's extraordinary drawings for the project. With a new essay by Peter Salter on his drawings and an introduction by architectural associate Fenella Collingridge, the catalogue reveals the intrinsic importance of Salter's drawings to the process of his architectural practice. Salter’s drawings oscillate between place and detail, idea and representation, strategy and materiality. Persuasively imagining a lived environment, Salter effortlessly shifts between high level planning and intricate detail – an overarching idea is formulated through the exposition of detail. One sheet of tracing paper might encompass scales of 1:100, 1:20 and 1:1 as a problem is worked through; controlled struggle to enable critical development resides on the surface of the tracing paper. The integrity of the idea manifests through the removal of extraneous information, variation in stress and weighting of pen lines.

After ten years of travelling abroad, Alex returns to his childhood home in Melbourne: a big old house with a tower overlooking a creek where his mother cousin still live. Alex discovers that his cousin and his mother share a secret. Both had known the hidden occupant of a shack shrouded in blackberries and bushland on the opposite side of the creek. Alex had been forbidden from crossing the creek as a child and had spent years wondering who lived in the hut. He learns that the secret man had not been seen for many years. Mick tells Alex he never knew the man’s full name or where he came from. Alex enters the hut, drawn by the childhood mystery. What he uncovers leads him to revisit his family's dark history.

TRANSFORMATION AND CHANGE IN THE GAROS COMMUNITY OF BANGLADESH A Study of Residence, Gender and Power in Mandigaon Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury Transformation and Change in the Garos Community of Bangladesh: A Study of Gender and Power in Mandigaon is a study focusing on the Garos (Mandi), a small matrilineal ethnic community of Bangladesh, particularly, about the changes in their residence pattern and its implications on gender roles and male and female power in the society. The central concern of the study is an exploration of the relationship between post marital residence, gender relations and power among the Garos of Bangladesh. Since change in residence pattern has been associated with other considerations, the study also focuses on social, political, economic and environmental consequences of the changes in the kinship system of the Garos. It is hoped that the wealth of information presented here will be added to the anthropological literature related to Garo affairs of Bangladesh, and contribute to the understanding of the process of social, political, economic and environmental changes in the kinship system of the Garos.
