Our Times - The Age of Elizabeth II, A. N. Wilson
2 A. N. Wilson Our Times - The Age of Elizabeth II
Arrow Books 231090 Great Britain 2009 0099492466 / 9780099492467 Softcover Near Fine Condition When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, many proclaimed the start of a new Elizabethan Age. Few had any inkling, however, of the stupendous changes that would take place over the next 50 years, in Britain and around the world. In "Our Times", A.N. Wilson takes the reader on an exhilarating journey from that day to this. With his acute eye not just for the broad social and cultural sweep but also for the telling detail, he brilliantly distils half a century of unprecedented social and political change. Here are the defining events and characters of the modern age, from the Suez crisis to Vietnam, The Beatles to Princess Diana, the miners' strike to the Cold War. Here are the "Angry Young Men", the satirists of "Beyond the Fringe", Ruth Ellis and the abolition of hanging, the rise of pop culture and celebrity, industrial unrest and the "Winter of Discontent", the Thatcher era and the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union. This book will propel you from post-war austerity - an age of deference in which men wore hats and women wore gloves - through the alterations in our social landscape to the multi-cultural Britain of today. Despite the appalling tyrannies that have taken place in the world, Wilson argues that in the last fifty years Britain has known a period of prosperity and peace without precedent in its history. 481 pages. Light foxing to outer page edges. With colour and black and white illustrations . Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; History; ISBN/EAN: 9780099492467.

Persia and The Greeks - The Defence of the West c.546-478 B.C., A. R. Burn
3 A. R. Burn Persia and The Greeks - The Defence of the West c.546-478 B.C.
Gerald Duckworth 231542 1970 Second Edition 0715617656 / 9780715617656 Softcover Very Good Condition In this volume the writer concludes a program of work undertaken many years ago, attempting to produce a readable account of the early age of Greece, from the age of the Trojan War (in Minoans, Philistines and Greeks, 1930) and the late prehistoric (in The World of Hesiod, 1936; both long out of print, and the former largely out of date), through The Lyric Age of Greece (1960), to the eve of the rise of the Athenian Empire. The rise of Greek civilisation was described in the last-named book; in the present work we begin with that of the Persians, one of the great imperial peoples of history, who deserve more sympathetic treatment than, from our inevitably and rightly phil-Hellenic point of view, they have sometimes received. The Persian Wars themselves, too, embrace much more than the great culminating episode of Xerxes' invasion, which Thucydides dismissed as 'settled by two battles at sea and two on land'. He would have been more just if he had compared that, not to the whole length of the Peloponnesian War, but to the one episode of the Sicilian expedition. The Persian wars too, together with the simultaneous struggle against Persia's allies, the Phoenicians, were a prolonged though intermittent series of campaigns, ranging in time from Cyrus' conquest of Ionia in 546 to Kimon's last campaign in Cyprus in 450, and in space extending throughout the whole length of the Mediterranean. To trace the course and connections of these campaigns, together with the rise, just in time to be the decisive factor, of the democracy of Athens and of its sea-power, is a task the more worth attempting for the fact that it has not been the subject of a full-length study since that of Grundy, published in 1899. With a postscript by D. M. Lewis. 612 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; History; ISBN: 0715617656. ISBN/EAN: 9780715617656. Inventory No: 231542.

By Permission of Heaven - The Story of the Great Fire of London, Adrian Tinniswood
9 Adrian Tinniswood By Permission of Heaven - The Story of the Great Fire of London
Pimlico 231291 Great Britain 2004 0712668470 / 9780712668477 Softcover Good Condition There had, of course, been other fires, Four Hundred and fifty years before, the city had almost burned to the ground. Yet the signs from the heavens in 1666 were ominous: comets, pyramids of flame, monsters born in city slums. Then, in the early hours on 2 September, a small fire broke out on the ground floor of a baker's house in Pudding Lane. In five days that small fire would devastate the third largest city in the Western world. Adrian Tinniswood's magnificent new account of the Great Fire of London explores the history of a cataclysm and its consequences. It pieces together the untold human story of the Fire and its aftermath - the panic, the search for scapegoats, and the rebirth of a city. Above all, it provides an unsurpassable recreation of what happened to schoolchildren and servants, courtiers and clergyman when the streets of London ran with fire. 330 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History::Great Britain; History; ISBN: 0712668470. ISBN/EAN: 9780712668477.

Jefferson & Madison - The Great Collaboration, Adrienne Koch
10 Adrienne Koch Jefferson & Madison - The Great Collaboration
Galaxy / Oxford University Press 226502 New York 1964 Softcover Good Condition This book is an important and original interpretation of the half-century friendship between Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. It shows how the two philosopher statesmen jointly worked out the philosophy of democracy in the clash of contending interests. It is a contribution to the history of ideas and to a fuller understanding of two political realists who founded their faith on the people and envisaged the American republic as an experiment in liberty. Miss Koch goes behind formal statements and outward events to reveal Jefferson and Madison in their fight for democratic but strong government, free of religious ties, unafraid of political criticism, protective of civil liberties, and dedicated to learning. She recreates the personal drama and re-evaluates the political and philosophic significance of their views on federal authority, the French Revolution, the two-party system, the Alien and Sedition Acts, the public debt, the Supreme Court, the Louisiana Purchase, the location of the federal capitol, and the support of education in a free society.
