Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900, Alfred W. Crosby
7 Alfred W. Crosby Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900
Cambridge University Press 246452 USA 1991 0521336139 / 9780521336130 Softcover Very Good Condition People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand. The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in his highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest. 368 pages.

Mary, Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley, Alison Weir
8 Alison Weir Mary, Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley
Jonathan Cape 247435 London 2003 First Edition 0224060236 / 9780224060233 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good On the night of 10 February 1567 an explosion devastated the Edinburgh residence of Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley, second husband of Mary, Queen of Scots. The noise was heard as far away as Holyrood Palace, where Queen Mary was attending a wedding masque. Those arriving at the scene of devastation found, in the garden, the naked corpses of Darnley and his valet. Neither had died in the explosion, but both bodies bore marks of strangulation. It was clear that they had been murdered and the house destroyed in an attempt to obliterate the evidence. Darnley was not a popular king-consort, but he was regarded by many as having a valid claim to the English throne. For this reason Elizabeth I had opposed his family's longstanding wish to marry him to Mary Stuart, who herself claimed to be the rightful queen of England. Alison Weir's investigation of Darnley's murder is set against one of the most dramatic periods in British history. Her conclusions will shed a brilliant new light on the actions and motives of the conspirators and, in particular, the extent of Mary's own involvement. 621 pages. Tanning to pages. Illustrated.
