3 ABENDSCHÖN, Simone Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation
ECPR Press / European Consortium for Political Research Press, 2013, ISBN:1907301429 
ABENDSCHÖN, Simone. Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation. (Colchester, UK) : ECPR Press , (2013). Pp (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]- 280. 8vo, blue hardcovers. In the ECPR Studies in European Political Science series. "This book presents up-to-date empirical research on crucial questions of political socialisation. It suggests new approaches and answers to a classic, but still valid question of political socialisation research: 'Who learns what from whom, under what circumstances, and with what effects?' (Greenstein 1965: 13). The volume maintains that political socialisation is no universal or independent phenomenon, but one significantly shapedby the surrounding parameters of the society in which it is embedded. Ther efore, deficits in political socialisation research have become especially clear in light of political and societal changes over recent decades. The book contributes to two important discussions in the study of political socialisation: first, the question of the (relative) importance of socialisation agents and contexts, second - inextricably interwoven with the first - the timing of political socialisation. From a European perspective, articles in the volume shed light on old problems and topics of the field, using newmethodological approaches or dealing with long-neglected perspectives such as young children's democratic learning or political socialisation.. Inclu des quantitative approaches as well as innovative and explorative case studies." from rear cover. Contents : 1. Introduction: Political Socialisation in a Changing World (by Simnne Abendschon). 2.

(6),7-[187],(5). 8vo, green cloth with gilt lettering to spine, top edge dyed green. "to make Graham Greene's real acquaintance it is necessary to look for him in his books. 'I thinkmy books are my children,' he frankly concedes. In his autobiographical wo rks, 'A Sort of Life' and 'Ways of Escape' he does, it is true, lift a corner of the veil. But we have had to wait till the publication of these uninhibited, free-ranging conversations with the young French writer Marie-Francoise Allain to discover the hidden Greene. He discusses his childhood, his travels and encounters, the genesis of his novels and plays, his religion, his inner world with a freedom and candour which overcome his habitual reticence." - from the dustjacket.

14 ALLEN, Charles KIPLING, Rudyard Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. First Edition in dustjacket, signed by author
Little, Brown, London, 2007, ISBN:9780316726559 
ALLEN, Charles. Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. (London) : Little, Brown, (2007). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xix,(3),1-426,+ 16 pp plates. Text illustrations. Maps. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, red lettering to spine, illustrated endpapers. "This is the story of the forgotten Kipling: 'Ruddy' the troubled youth eager to be accepted by Anglo-Indian society but too arrogant for his own good. A boy terrified of heat, darkness, and disease; a teenager who suffered a series of physical and mental breakdowns and turned to opiates for relief. A young man compelled to take dangerous 'night walks' into the native city of Lahore. This is Ruddy the breaker of taboos: who visited prostitutes; who wrote about love across the racial divide and wives who committed adultery in the hill-stations; who wrote sympathetically about the drunks and vagabonds of the British underclass. But when Kipling used his pen to attack figures in the highest tiers of the establishment, he became too scandalous for British India's comfort. At twenty-three, Ruddy left India to make a name for himself in literary London." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: 'Seek not to question.' 1. 'Mother of cities': Bombay and a beginning, 1865-7. 2. 'Youth in the eye of thesun': Bombay and expulsion from Eden, 1867-71. 3. 'A double death': Souths ea and Lahore, 1871-7. 4.
