1861, East Anglia. Alone in a first-class carriage, the Swarbricks are robbed at gunpoint, but when the universally admired Swarbrick fights back, the train robber takes more than money and jewellery, killing the man working to unify East Anglia’s tangle of railway networks. Inspector Colbeck is brought in as the only detective in Britain with enough expertise for the job. But as Swarbrick’s glowing reputation begins to crumble, the line of investigation isn’t clear: is this the act of a bungling burglar, a business rival, a disgruntled son, or a jealous lover? Is the Railway Detective following the right track or will he need to switch points to bring the murderer to justice?

With Lord Churchill’s rousing words ringing in his ears, the courageous young Captain Daniel Rawson embarks on a dangerous mission to lead his men into battle against the French enemy. He must succeed at all costs- the future of England is at stake. But Rawson is the target of the murderous General Salignac who will stop at nothing to see his adversary dead. As Rawson and his men march across the continent, he must keep one step ahead of Salignac’s brigands and live to fight heroically at the Battle of Blenheim. The author of the bestselling Railway detective series triumphs with this stunning first book in the Captain Rawson series.

June, 1917. While German Gotha bombers raid London from above, a man’s body is fished from the Thames below. As the killer has taken care to remove identifying items and even labels, Detective Inspector Marmion and Sergeant Keedy struggle to name the victim before they can begin properly with their investigation. As family and business associates are found, the list of suspects grows ever longer, and as Marmion wrangles with the case, he and his family must also contend with their anxieties for his now missing son Paul. With great care, Marmion must pick his way along a twisting path that will lead him towards the killer.

December 1860. Headed for the morning shift at the Swindon Locomotive works is an army of men pouring out of terraced houses built by the GWR, a miniature town and planned community that aims to provide for its employees from cradle to grave. Unfortunately, boiler smith Frank Rodman is headed for the grave sooner than he’d expected, or he will be once his missing head is found. Colbeck, the Railway Detective, finds his investigation into Rodman’s murder mired in contradictions. On the trail of Rodman’s enemy as the season starts to bite, Colbeck finds little festive cheer in the twists and turns of this peculiar case.

While “The Hoax Suite” is an exploration of the dialogue between figuration and abstraction, its themes are manifold, from the contemplation of mortality to faded beauty and lost love—fragrant flowers in full bloom, as if to deceive us, soon decay. Here, Mortimer shines a flashlight on the spectral beauty of death, and reminds us that life is the agonizing yet ecstatic explosion of color that fleetingly fills the void.

Lorien Suárez Kanerva

Alan Singer’s Wheel House is a selection of his paintings and prints from this New York born artist. Singer’s path in the visual arts looks back to graffiti and ahead to sparkling color with a blend of experimentation in new forms bordering on the surreal. WHEEL HOUSE highlights Singer’s engagement with geometric models while charting a new course into abstraction that deals with the physics of deep space.

Lorien Suárez Kanerva reveals worlds within worlds in her art. She proposes vibrant geometric configurations with infinite iterations. Her approach is both graphic and painterly: rhythmic lines are entwined with luxuriant hues to consolidate a compelling visual execution in wh ich reference to the real is unnecessary. The subtleties of her artworks divulge the secrets of the universe with the simple language all beings understand: color, shape and line. Viewers can feel the energy that permeates the natural world, everything that connects living beings. The artist names the unnamable, and visually suggests the invisible routes of the metaphysics of the cosmos.

Portrait of an Artist is an ongoing series that I started in 2008. It’s a collection of correspondence between artists and the documentation of the personal everyday wear of life of these artists through the painting of their personal shoes. Treating these shoes as a representational portrait of each artist and documenting the imprint of the shoes by the wearer.

Home. In My Heart, Beating So Far Away examines Lali’s exploration as an immigrant, grappling with issues of identity, home, family and diaspora. In her photographs taken over a span of ten years, she illustrates complex challenges where she is continually shifting, trying to find out new ways of retaining her identity in an environment of changing ideologies and perspectives. She tries to bridge two ends of a spectrum, the fading past and the vague future. The images do appear simple and direct, but if viewed without a predetermined perception, explain the evolving narrative through the veiled stories imbedded in them.

Shiny Objects showcases the work of New York based artist John LaMacchia. The book brings together a diverse group of photographic and sculptural work. LaMacchia, who is known for his C-prints of everyday individuals or objects distilled from their natural habitats, scrutinizes the fixated dynamics of contemporary routine as well as the fluidity between high and low cultures. Employing firsthand sarcasm as a utilitarian tool, the artist dismantles mediocre perceptions imposed by consumerist narrative and prevalent media.

101 Contemporary Artists Volume 2 features the next wave of visual artists that should be on your radar. Our goal is to introduce artists of merit no matter what their sex, race, age, or religion. Their respective contributions to the landscape of contemporary art is the only criteria. A majority of the artists you discover in this book are either emerging, mid-career, or mature. The connective tissue is that all art is relevant and all voices deserving. Curated by noted artists and publisher Terrence Sanders.

ADAM’S BIG BANG A Novel Bernard Sussman In hindsight, perhaps Adam Grossman should not have retired—at least not so soon. After all, he was a respected heart surgeon and certainly not of diminished skills. Now a year later, he’s adrift, although not always unpleasantly. For his wife Eva it’s a different story. He is disrupting her life to the point that she has jokingly suggested an affair to fill his days. Even their two dogs seem a little agitated with Adam’s current schedule. Adam has hit upon an idea. He will tell the tale of Oscar’s life and career and thus revive the public’s enthusiasm for the musician-songwriter. Then, there is a wonderful coincidence. Attending an Oscar Brown Jr. show at the last minute, Adam is approached by a young woman.

Welcome to the world of the Electroencephalographer. Adam Turner is a middle-aged, married, Washington-based physician. By all appearances, he is a conventional and well-organized neurologist at a university hospital. In truth, he is a fearful man, depressed and tormented by the idea of his death, obsessed by recurring and somewhat paranoid philosophical ruminations of his own wretched condition. Confronted with the impending death of his close friend Jean, his depression deepens; despair made worse by a peculiar lifelong handicap - the inability to cry.

Adam Carter is never quite satisfied that everything is in order. He’s had these obsessive thoughts before, but for Adam, a successful Washington lobbyist, they have in recent years been merely a sometimes annoyance, a quirkiness. Now, the “checking” behaviors threaten to debilitate him. So Adam pays a visit to his old psychiatrist. Adam knows the true cause of his problems is not to be found in a diagnostic manual. It is the Horla, a creature straight out of a Guy de Maupassant tale. Now, the Horla is stronger, more active than ever before and intent on destroying Adam’s world. Adam has met a woman, Miranda. She’s willing to put up with Adam’s eccentricity—to a point. With the help of a new ally, a Doberman named Willie, Adam plans for a final confrontation to vanquish the Horla and regain his life.

THE RADIO A Novel Bernard Sussman Adam Merritt, a successful dermatologist, wakens one morning determined to be, in all things, truthful. The reaction of those around him, however, is less enthusiastic. Adam decides to turn on the old table radio in his bedroom. When Adam’s journey of remembrance becomes contorted, he questions the facts that make up his life and the circumstances surrounding his memories. Will he ever understand reality again? The truth—if it is the truth— threatens to destroy the man that Adam Merritt thought he was.

In his own words, he was a man “for whom there is no place and no refuge among his own brethren...doomed to peregrinate in a spiritual Diaspora.”

Joesph B. Schechtman was a close associate of Jabotinsky for over thirty years.

Arthur Ransome and Brian Hammett

This is Arthur Ransome’s account of Racundra’s maiden voyage, which took place in August and September 1922. This edition uses the original text in its entirety - with the original layout, maps and photographs - and also includes an excellent introduction by Brian Hammett containing a treasure trove of previously unpublished writings, essays and photographs.

Ransome’s account of his first cruise on that boat was his first commercially successful book. The third cruise was special— it was his honeymoon having married Evgenia Shelepina. Ransome clearly intended to publish the account of this cruise, but never finished it. This is a glorious volume which has delighted Ransome enthusiasts, sailors and landlubbers equally. Ransome enthusiast, Brian, compiled this book, adding his own notes from his cruises in the same area.

LET THERE BE JUSTICE The Political Journey of Imran Khan B.J. Sadiq Imran Khan has been in the spot light again. On this occasion not for his cricket but for his defiant presence on the political canvas of Pakistan. Imran’s personal life and character has already drawn a lot of coverage. His opponents hate his guts, and more so the coverage he gets on social media. His contemporaries may despise him for his open stage bluntness and tongue-lashing, but the man undoubtedly possesses tremendous persuasive powers to bring about people to his line of thinking. Rising from the depths, his movement for justice party enjoys a strong voice in the opposition. He has managed to draw huge crowds at voting booths—an uncommon spectacle in Pakistan. He remains a celebrated figure and a serious crowd puller. Imran Khan’s arduous political journey is a territory that deserves to be explored.

Shira Geffen’s beautiful and poetic story follows a little girl, Alona, on her journey home through a windswept park. She rests under a tree and eats an apple and, with each bite, a leaf falls off the tree. One of the leaves is different from the others—it is an enchanted, heart-shaped leaf, and it drops onto Alona’s head and clings to her braid. The magical leaf protects her from the lead and she arrives home completely dry. Shira Geffen’s delicate, vivid and moving fantasy is perfectly illustrated by Polonsky’s intricate pictures, full of movement and drawn from many and varied angles. This is a touching and gentle story, for 4-8 year old readers, with remarkable beauty, gentleness and delicacy. The Heart Shaped Leaf has also been translated into Swedish, Arabic and Persian.

Echo Still is a sports story about refusing to give up on one’s dreams regardless of the obstacles. It’s a school story, about a ordinary 12-year-old boy dealing with the everyday challenges of growing up. But most compellingly, Echo Still offers a moving depiction of the healing power of a grandmother’s love. Infused with Jewish values and affection for Jewish rituals and holidays, this novel will certainly appeal to Jewish communities everywhere, but the deep humanity of Echo Still will resonate with readers of all backgrounds.

AQUAFABA Vegan Cooking without Eggs using the Magic of Chickpea Water Sébastien Kardinal and Laura VeganPower From the Latin aqua (water) and faba (beans), aquafaba is the cooking liquid found in tinned beans and other legumes like chickpeas or the liquid left over from cooking your own. Its unique mix of starches, proteins, fiber and sugars, which are left in the water after cooking, gives aquafaba a wide range of emulsifying, foaming, binding and thickening properties, making it the perfect ingredient in vegan cooking or recipes for those who have egg allergies. It’s amazing to think that this precious liquid that we all threw down the sink could have such incredible properties. It can be used to replace egg whites in many sweet and savoury recipes. The authors give all the secrets of aquafaba; how to make your own at home with just chickpeas and water and then how to use it in a dazzling array of recipes. Sébastien and Laura have thought of everything. Having created your aquafaba there are even a collection of recipes at the end of the book which use those cooked chickpeas to make hummus, falafels and curries.

Denmark’s Great Renaissance King Jens Gunni Busck, Axel Harms and Peter Sean Woltemade

The King Who Seized Absolute Power Jens Gunni Busck, Axel Harms and Peter Sean Woltemade

This book is about Christian IV, who became King of Denmark and Norway when he was only 11 years old. He ruled for 60 years, and was responsible for the construction of a number of Denmark’s most beloved buildings. He has gone down in history as the greatest king Denmark has ever had.

Frederik III reigned from 1648 to 1670 and introduced absolute monarchy in Denmark-Norway. Absolute monarchy established itself in many places in Europe during the 17th century, and in Denmark-Norway it was established unusually quickly and firmly.

The First Heir to the Throne Jens Gunni Busck, Birgit Jenvold and Peter Sean Woltemade

King on His Own Terms Jens Gunni Busck, Birgit Jenvold and Peter Sean Woltemade

Christian V reigned from 1670 until 1699. During his reign, state power became centralized and absolute monarchy was consolidated, and he made a competent but ultimately unsuccessful attempt to reconquer the territories that had been lost during his father’s reign.

This book tells the story of Frederik IV, who reigned from 1699 until 1730 in a headstrong manner. In his love life, he was extremely headstrong; he abducted his beloved Anna Sophie Reventlow, with whom he entered into a morganatic marriage and whom he later made his Queen.

King first of Norway and then of Denmark Jens Gunni Busck, Axel Harms and Peter Sean Woltemade

The Giver of the Constitution Jens Gunni Busck, Birgit Jenvold and Peter Sean Woltemade

Christian VIII ruled Denmark from 1839 to 1848 as the country’s last absolute monarch; in 1814 he was briefly Norway’s first constitutional king, and took the initiative to introduce the constitutions of Norway and Denmark. Christian VIII and Queen Caroline Amalie lived during a time that was characterized by political unrest but also by cultural richness.

Frederik VII ruled Denmark from 1848 until 1863. In 1849 he introduced Denmark’s first constitution. He was an odd individual with a rather unstable temperament, and in many ways was a black sheep within the royal family. In particular, Frederik VII provoked people with his marriage to Countess Danner. Frederik VII has become a royal icon of democracy in Denmark.

This book is part of the Crown Series, a series of small books on the Danish monarchy and related subjects. Since 1920 Amalienborg has been the permanent residence of the Danish monarchy.

This book tells the story of the foremost symbols of the Kingdom of Denmark—the crown, the sceptre, and the orb—which have been kept at Rosenborg Castle since the 1680s.



Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid were the Danish royal couple from 1947 to 1972 and together they modernized. They mastered the art of being both popular and royal in a time when handling the media became increasingly important for the monarchy.

Vibrant and thought-provoking, Mantra Art harnesses the power of an innovative art form to encourage a personal inner journey towards understanding one’s own divine nature. Each meditative painting is imbued with thousands of miniscule, handwritten mantra inspired by the Sikh concept of Oneness—a universal approach to life that is mindful of the Divine presence in everything and everyone, and thus recognizes all people as equal. Accompanying the images are insights from the artist illuminating how each artwork was instrumental in aiding her own personal and powerful experiences of joy, exuberance, peace and self-healing.

DRUG TRIAL SECRETS How drug companies and medical experts dupe you and your doctor David Healy, Joanna Le Noury, Dee Mangin and Julie Wood

November 2018 | paperback | $22.95 | 978-1-45941-310-8 | 224 pages | 6 x 9 | NCR

Drug Trial Secrets tells the story of the most famous clinical drug trial of all time — the only trial to lead to a fraud charge, as well as the biggest drug company fine in history. But perhaps the most important result was that independent researchers were given access to the full, original records of the clinical trial and relating documents. David Healy and his co-authors spent thousands of hours re-analyzing the raw data, and in this book they describe exactly how GSK and the medical professionals who claimed authorship of the journal article manipulated the data to produce the false result they wanted.

The Halifax explosion was unprecedented in its devastation with regards to casualties, force and radius of the blast, and widespread damage to property. This book offers a collection of carefully selected visuals that tell the story of the devastation caused by the explosion and the impact it had on Halifax. Joyce Glasner focuses on the impact of this wartime disaster on the thousands of survivors.

A distinguished Canadian economist is breaking the silence with a compelling and readable account which describes and explains this new age of increasing inequality. Lars Osberg provides new data which will surprise, even shock, many readers. He explains the factors that lead to growing high salaries for corporate executives, managers, and some fortunate professionals. He believes that increasing inequality is bad for the country, and its unfairness is toxic to public life. But there is nothing inevitable about this, and he points to innovative measures that would produce a fairer distribution of wealth among all Canadians.

Lars Osberg is a Professor of Economics at Dalhousie University. 30

BEYOND THAT LAST BLUE MOUNTAIN Harriet Sandys Harriet’s parents hoped that, after leaving boarding school and doing `the Season’, she would meet and marry a suitable young man. But she was to disappoint them. Just after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, she set off for Peshawar to see for herself the plight of thousands of displaced Afghan refugees. Determined to do something about their dire situation, Harriet set up a small silk weaving project for illiterate Turkmen refugees, and was sent by UNESCO to Mazar-i-sharif to work with Afghanistan’s last remaining silk ikat weavers. This is the story of a young woman from a sheltered and privileged background travelling and working alone, in and around war zones, frequently with no financial or practical support, at a time of increasing Islamic fundamentalism. She continues to raise money for charity through her business selling oriental textiles and remains friends with the refugees she helped in Afghanistan.

PATRON SAINTS Collecting Stanley Spencer Amanda Bradley Patron Saints: Collecting Stanley Spencer is a revealing new exhibition at the renowned Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham—Spencer’s spiritual home and major source of inspiration. The exhibition draws together a spectacular collection of loans, including The Centurion’s Servant (Tate); Love on the Moor (Fitzwilliam); John Donne Arriving in Heaven (Fitzwilliam); and one work not seen in the public domain in over 50 years. The exhibition and catalog examine the often complex relationships between Spencer and his patrons and what drove them to collect his work. Spencer was a single-minded genius, but the influence of his patrons on his painting is far greater than has hitherto been realized. Curator Amanda Bradley comments, “Behind Stanley Spencer, one of the greatest Modern British artists, were a group of individuals who enabled his very existence—both artistically and emotionally. It explores the emergence of Spencer as an artistic personality, looking at those who helped him and why he—and his popularity—was a product of the zeitgeist (first half of the twentieth century) characterized by social and economic anxiety”.

THOMAS GAINSBOROUGH Experiments in Drawing Marco Simone Bolzoni William Jackson, one of Gainsborough’s closest friends and biographers, noted that if he had “to rest his [Gainsborough] reputation on one point, it should be on his Drawings”. Gainsborough mixed different kind of media and invented recipes to make drawings in his own personal fashion: he would sometimes immerse his drawing paper in milk, or varnish it to give his landscapes a lucent tint. The exhibition is based on the group of Gainsborough drawings in the permanent collection of the Morgan Library & Museum, one of the richest holdings of Gainsborough drawing in the United States. Additional drawings from private and public collections, among them some borrowed for the exhibition, are included in the introductory essay of the catalog.

ARTISTS AT WORK Deanna Petherbridge and Anita Sganzerla This trans-historical exhibition of drawings is devoted to the subject of the artist at work. Drawn principally from a very fine specialist private collection, this display will focus on the depictions of artists’ studios, their own portraits, models and assistants in symbolic, as well as from life, representations of the métier of drawing, painting and sculpture. Art historians have interpreted these themes variously as the means of elevating the social and economic status of artists; of illustrating the marriage of intellectual knowledge and practical skill proposed by academic theorists, or as sophisticated allegories of the philosophical significance of visual art. This focused exhibition, spanning from the 16th to the 20th centuries, proposes to explore this rich subject matter through a carefully selected group of graphic works.

Most people today think of the Middle Ages as a time when cloistered monks wrote and read only in now-obscure languages. Of course, Latin was the language of those who aspired to literacy, and it was the language of the Church. But what many do not realize is that by the thirteenth and fourteenth century, numerous books became available in the everyday languages spoken “at the court, on the street, and in the bedroom.” This catalog focuses on just such manuscripts, written for people at diverse levels of society, not only the privileged aristocracy, but doctors, artisans, townspeople, women, the clergy, and the lay devout. The manuscript is on paper in simple, yet readable script.

Laura Light is Director and Senior Specialist, Text Manuscript, at Les Enluminures. Christopher de Hamel FSA FRHistS is a Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and Fellow Librarian of the Parker Library.



Meaningful Jewels This book concerns objects that were “meaningful” jewels, a term we choose to designate to a wide range of precious wearable objects that had particular meaning. An Anglo-Saxon glass pendant, a Spanish “magic belt,” a Mexican lantern pendant (once adorned with New World feathers), and an Imperial Memento Mori Skullare are just a few of the remarkable objects included. These intimate meaningful jewels are meant to be opened, touched, manipulated, pinned, gathered and strung.

THE LEGACY OF ANNE FRANK Gillian Walnes Perry From her secret hiding place in wartime Amsterdam, the Jewish teenager Anne Frank wrote heart-wrenchingly about the terrors of a captivity that would ultimately end with her death at the hands of the Nazis. In her world-famous diaries, she described with remarkable honesty her transition from childhood to a deep thinking, opinionated and passionate teenager. The life she longed to live, during which she would help to create a more caring world, was tragically not to be. In August 1944, she and her family were captured and deported to Auschwitz. Two years after her death from starvation and disease in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, her diary was published. It quickly became an international sensation, going on to influence hearts and minds for over seventy years. Although many books and literary analyses have been written about Anne Frank’s life and diary, none have explored the surprising influence she has had on young people in countries all over the world, helping to shape their moral framework and giving them critical life skills. This is due in part to the merits of a travelling exhibition created by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam in 1985 which has so far been seen by over 9 million people. The Anne Frank exhibition, along with its innovative educational and cultural activities, has circumnavigated the globe many times. In this fascinating study, Gillian Walnes Perry explores the various legacies of Anne Frank’s influence. She looks at the complex life of Anne Frank’s father and the motivations that powered his educational philosophy. She shares new insights into the real Anne Frank, personally gifted by those who actually knew her. Global icons such as Nelson Mandela and Audrey Hepburn relate the influence that Anne Frank had on shaping their own lives. This book presents—all in one place and for the very first time—the inspirational stories of a diverse variety of people from all over the world, brought together by the words of one particularly articulate and inspiring teenage victim of the Holocaust.

In 2010, she was awarded an MBE for her work in education.

After 26 years of building the Anne Frank Trust, she retired as the charity’s Executive Director in 2016.

BLACK AMERICANS IN VICTORIAN BRITAIN Jeffrey P Green Black Americans informed the Victorian British and Irish about slavery and repression in the United States. Villages, towns and cities from Dorchester to Cambridge, Belfast to Hull, Dumfries to Brighton, also learned of their ambitions and achievements. Numerous publications were sold everywhere, and lectures were crowded. The refugees settled in Britain. Some worked as domestic servants, others qualified as doctors, wrote books, taught in schools, labored in factories and on ships. The youngsters went to school. This book documents refugees, settlers, and their families as well as pioneering entertainers in both minstrel shows and stage adaptions of the 1850s best-selling novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

A VICTORIAN LADY’S GUIDE TO FASHION AND BEAUTY Mimi Matthews What did a Victorian lady wear for a walk in the park? How did she style her hair for an evening at the theater? And what products might she have used to soothe a sunburn or treat an unsightly blemish? Mimi Matthews answers these questions and more as she takes readers on a decade-by-decade journey through Victorian fashion and beauty history. Women’s clothing changed dramatically during the course of the Victorian era. As fashion was evolving, so too were trends in ladies’ hair care and cosmetics. Using research from nineteenth century beauty books, fashion magazines, and lady’s journals, Mimi Matthews brings the intricacies of a Victorian lady’s toilette into modern day focus. In the process, she gives readers a glimpse of the social issues that influenced women’s clothing and the societal outrage that was an all too frequent response to those bold females who used fashion and beauty as a means of asserting their individuality and independence.

LADY OF THE HOUSE 19th Century Women and their Role in the English Country House Charlotte Furness This book tells the true stories of three gentile women who were born, raised, lived and died within the world of England’s Country Houses. This is not the story of ‘seen and not heard’ women, these are incredible women who endured tremendous tragedy and worked alongside their husbands to create a legacy that we are still benefitting from today. Harriet Leveson-Gower, Countess Granville was the second born child of the infamous Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire who married her aunt’s lover, raised his illegitimate children and reigned supreme as Ambassadress over the Parisian elite. Lady Mary Isham lived at Lamport Hall in Northamptonshire with her family where, despite great tragedy, she was responsible for developing a house and estate whilst her husband remained ‘the silent Baronet’. Elizabeth Manners, Duchess of Rutland, hailed from Castle Howard and used her upbringing to design and build a Castle and gardens at Belvoir suitable for a Duke and Duchess that inspired a generation of country house interiors. These women were expected simply to produce children, to be active members of society, to give handsomely to charity and to look the part. What these three remarkable women did instead is develop vast estates, oversee architectural changes, succeed in business, take a keen role in politics as well as successfully managing all the expectations of an aristocratic lady.

TALES FROM THE BIG HOUSE: NOSTELL PRIORY 900 Years of its History and People Michael J Rochford As long ago as the twelfth century, St Oswald’s Priory at Nostell, near Pontefract, was home to canons of the order of St Augustine, and until it was dissolved during the reign of Henry VIII it was one of the wealthiest priories in the country. In secular times, a grand house on the site was home to the Gargrave family, whose rapid rise had seen Sir Thomas Gargrave attain the offices of Speaker in the House of Commons and High Sheriff of Yorkshire during the days of Queen Elizabeth I. But within a couple of generations the family was ruined. Sir Thomas’s grandson and namesake, into whose hands Nostell had come, was executed in 1595 for committing murder by poisoning, a deed shrouded in mystery and misinformation for centuries—until now.

THE FOUNDING OF ISRAEL The Journey to a Jewish Homeland from Abraham to the Holocaust Martin Connolly ‘Here [In the State if Israel] their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance, and gave the world the Eternal Book of Books.’ David Ben-Gurion, 14 May 1948. Seventy years ago in 1948 the State of Israel came into being amidst great controversy. For many, the Jews did not belong in Palestine and around them many nations sought to eradicate the new state from the map. How did the State arise? What led to the founding of Israel? This book sets out to give a chronological journey of the Jewish people from the time Abraham came out of the land of Ur 3,000 years ago, until 6 million of them died in the horror of the Holocaust under Hitler and his Nazi regime. It recounts the many expulsions from the land in which they lived, the suffering under Babylonians, Greek, Persians, the destruction of their Temple in Jerusalem in 70 AD, and finally, genocide and the expulsion by the Romans in 132 AD creating a diaspora across the world. This book recounts their story to achieve a homeland, using a wide-range of historical documents to tell the story of humiliation, suffering, poverty and death. It tells of religious persecution that would not let them rest, and as their journey enters the twentieth century, gives a behind-the-scenes look at how governments manipulated the Middle East and exacerbated divisions.

THE LAST GOVERNOR Chris Patten and the Handover of Hong Kong Jonathan Dimbleby 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, and was the man to oversee the handover ceremony of this former British colony. Within the last five years of British rule, acclaimed journalist Jonathan Dimbleby was given unique access to the governor which enabled him to document the twists and turns of such an extraordinary diplomatic, political and personal drama. As Governor, Patten encouraged the necessary expansion of Hong Kong’s social welfare system, striving to reconcile the basic rights and freedom of over 6 million people with the unpredictable imperatives of Beijing. 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.

ESCAPING OCCUPIED EUROPE A Dutchman’s Dangerous Journey to Join the Allies Hylke Faber and Pieter Stolk It is 1943, and in occupied Holland the Nazis have declared that all students must sign a Declaration of Loyalty, or face the penalty of forced labor in Germany. Medical student Daniël de Moulin refuses. A member of the Dutch resistance and in danger of being arrested and sentenced to death, he decides to escape to England and join the Allies to fight the Axis occupation of his motherland. Escaping Occupied Europe tells the remarkable story of De Moulin’s journey in his own words. His engaging and authentic style make this a unique document about the journey undertaken by Dutch men and women - ‘Engelandvaarders’ - during the war. ‘When, moments later we turned to look, we saw that the Gestapo was driving slowly behind us. There was no doubt that we were being followed. This realization, although sensational, was anything but pleasant … We were convinced that we had been caught and expected to be arrested at any moment. It was odd, really, that we were so calm and talked nonsense about how we might harass the Nazis during our interrogation…’ October 2018 | paperback | $22.95 | 978-1-52674-122-6 | 192 pages | 6 x 9 | CR CASEMATE | IPM NEW TITLES CATALOG FALL 2018

A Marriage of Unequals Amy Licence

Life and Rebellion Laura Brennan

Henry VI became king before his first birthday, inheriting a vast empire from his military hero father; Margaret was the daughter of a king without power, who made an unexpected marriage at the age of fifteen. Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou have become famous as the Lancastrian king and queen who were deposed during the Wars of the Roses but there is so much more to their story. In this discerning dual biography, Amy Licence leads the way in a long-overdue re-evaluation of their characters and contributions during a tumultuous and defining period of British history.

He was the illegitimate son of a king, a gallant and brave military hero, charming, handsome and well loved both within the court and with women; James Scott, Duke of Monmouth, had the life many would have envied in the seventeenth century. Monmouth lived in an age that was on the cusp of modernity. He lived through some of the biggest events and scandals of seventeenth century British history. James also experienced the political scandal of the Popish Plot; became embroiled in the foiled Rye House Plot, and was at the center of the Exclusion Crisis.

Mother of Richard III John Ashdown-Hill

The Life of Henry VIII’s Sister Melanie Clegg

Wife to Richard, Duke of York, mother to Edward IV and Richard III, and aunt to the famous ‘Kingmaker’, Richard, Earl of Warwick, Cecily Neville was a key player on the political stage of fifteenth-century England. Her story is full of controversy and the few published books on her life are full of guess-work. In this highly original history, Dr John Ashdown-Hill seeks to dispel the myths surrounding Cecily using previously unexamined contemporary sources.

Left widowed at the age of just twenty three after Margaret Tudor’s husband was killed by her brother’s army at the battle of Flodden, Margaret was made Regent for her young son and was temporarily the most powerful woman in Scotland—until she fell in love with the wrong man, lost everything and was forced to flee the country. In a life that foreshadowed that of her tragic, fascinating granddaughter Mary Queen of Scots, Margaret hurtled from one disaster to the next and ended her life abandoned by virtually everyone: a victim both of her own poor life choices and of the simmering hostility between her son, James V and her brother, Henry VIII.

Dr John Ashdown-Hill is a well-known medieval historian, having published extensively on a variety of topics within that period but focussing mainly on the Yorkist era. 40

FORGOTTEN ROYAL WOMEN The King and I Erin Lawless Great women are hidden behind great men, or so they say, and no man is greater than the king. For centuries, royal aunts, cousins, sisters and mothers have watched history unfold from the shadows, their battlefields the bedchamber or the birthing room, their often short lives remembered only through the lens of others. But for those who want to hear them, great stories are still there to be told: the medieval princess who was kidnapped by pirates; the duchess found guilty of procuring love potions; the queen who was imprisoned in a castle for decades. Bringing thirty of these royal women out of the shadows, along with the footnotes of their families, this collection of bite-sized biographies will tell forgotten tales and shine much needed light into the darkened corners of women’s history.

When Mary Tudor, eldest daughter of Henry VIII, succeeded to the throne of England in 1553 it was with wild rejoicing and a degree of popularity rarely seen on the accession of a British monarch. Yet at her death five years later she was almost universally reviled and hated by her people so much so that she was posthumously awarded the sobriquet Bloody Mary. During her brief reign she restored the Catholic faith to England and had over 280 Protestant martyrs burned at the stake. Mary’s brief period in power brought the greatest officially sanctioned religious bloodletting.

SORRY, NOT SORRY Experiences of a brown woman in a white South Africa Haji Mohamed Dawjee Why don’t white people understand that Converse tekkies are not just cool but a political statement to people of color? Why is it that South Africans of color don’t really ‘write what we like’? What’s the deal with people pretending to be ‘woke’? Is Islam really as antifeminist as is claimed? In Sorry, Not Sorry, Haji Mohamed Dawjee explores the often maddening experience of moving through post-apartheid South Africa as a woman of color. In characteristically candid style, she pulls no punches when examining the social landscape: from arguing why she’d rather deal with an open racist than some liberal white people, to drawing on her own experience to convince readers that joining a cult is never a good idea. In the provocative voice that has made Mohamed Dawjee one of the country’s most talked-about columnists, she offers observations laced with acerbic wit. Sorry, Not Sorry will make readers laugh, wince, nod, introspect and argue. October 2018 | paperback | $16.50 | 978-1-77609-266-6 | 224 pages | 6 x 9 | CR

In 1838, Robert Schumann composed a 13-piece piano work which he entitled Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood). He later added individual titles for each movement, after his wife Clara commented that he sometimes seemed like a child himself. These 13 pieces depict the daily life and experiences of a child, as well as his relationship with his parents and with his own world—as seen from a nostalgic adult’s perspective. Philip de Vos was inspired by both Schumann’s music and titles to write verses of his own.

Philip de Vos is an award-winning author, poet and acclaimed photographer and in 2015 received a KykNET Fiesta Lifetime Achievement award for Music, Literature and the Visual Arts in South Africa. Piet Grobler is an award winning illustrator who tells stories with his paintings and illustrations.

A Spritual Manifesto Larry Culliford

Uncovering the UK’s Wildlife Isla Hodgson

A skilled physician and psychiatrist has turned his gifted attention to the ailments of society. ‘Where is humanity heading, towards misery and destruction or a far more glorious future?’ ‘How can people – as individuals – make a difference?’ These are among the timely questions addressed by this boldly reasoned Spiritual Manifesto, which examines the human predicament in terms of both intellectual understanding, and deeply personal yet universal spiritual experiences.

This is a book about Britain’s wildlife; how to discover it, and the adventures we can have with it. Its aim is to show that you don’t have to travel to the nether reaches of the Arctic or the deepest corners of the Amazon rainforest to experience weird and wonderful creatures – they are right here, on our doorstep. Written by a young conservationist who hasn’t quite grown up, it details her small adventures travelling the UK in search of wildlife encounters, often on a shoestring budget.

GUT HEALTH AND PROBIOTICS Jenny Tschiesche A simplified explanation of probiotics and what they can do for and to the human body is long overdue. Despite the fact that people use the term probiotics a lot in the media as well as in everyday life there appears to be some confusion as to whether probiotics are something that occurs naturally in a healthy human gut or ‘biome’, something that is added to your yogurt or whether it’s simply a pot of pills that you need to take when you’re ill. Gut Health and Probiotics will take readers on a quest to understand what both probiotics and prebiotics can do for their long term gut health and how this might affect a broad range of body systems from skin health to mental health. Along the way readers will discover how useful probiotics are in both preventing and curing specific ailments, as Jenny explains just how simple it is to feel great from the inside-out. September 2018 | paperback | $24.95 | 978-1-52672-045-0 | 160 pages | 6 x 9 | CR Jenny Tschiesche is one of the UK’s leading nutrition experts and the founder of www.lunchboxdoctor.com, a hugely popular brand.
