University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1982, ISBN:0802055591 
CORNELL, Richard. Revolutionary Vanguard : The Early Years of the CommunistYouth International, 1914-1924. Toronto, Buffalo, London : University of T oronto Press, (1982). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xvi,(2),[3]-353,(3). 8vo, blue cloth with black lettering to front board and spine. "The monolithic nature of the communist movement during the Stalinist period overlay pluralist tendencies. These were suppressed in the 1920s, though they were to re-emerge after Stalin's death. The history of the Communist Youth International is revealed in this volume as an important example of the 'autonomist'tendencies in the communist movement after the First World War. The experi ence of the CYI also demonstrates that differences between the Leninist andStalinist eras were of degree, rather than of kind. Under Lenin, organizat ional principles and practices were introduced that gave to the new communist movement a distinct, authoritarian cast. Cornell considers the relevance, in the development of radical movements among the young, of such qualities as untempered idealism, a predisposition to embrace the most radical alternatives for social change, and a self-assertiveness or rebelliousness directed against traditional adult teachings. He shows how these qualities wereto lead, after the First World War (and more recently), to conflicts betwe en radical, ideologically orthodox youth and more pragmatic adult party leaders. In introducing their new kind of radicalism, the young communists of Europe in 1919 considered themselves to be the most revolutionary element among revolutionaries -- the highest form of 'revolutionary vanguard'. Moscow did not agree." -from the introductory preamble. Contents: 1. A traditionof independence; 2. Factional struggles and the socialist youth; 3. Radica lism and revolution; 4. The Berlin congress; 5. 'Clarity' in the socialist youth movement: the struggle for supremacy; 6. Conflict over the role of the youth movement; 7. Decisions in Moscow; 8.

There were evidently forces at work of which he knew not, nor sought to know. But that a new spirit was abroad, the storm- ing of Zeebrugge and the blocking of Ostend sufficiently demonstrated. Of the Paravane he had once heard the name, when the captain of a convoying cruiser told him that the boatswain complained that the Paravane ' caught fish.' Why the captain seemed to think the circumstance amusing, I did not know, having then no conception of the Paravane, nor did the captain explain. " - from the introduction.

CORNISH, John. A World Turned Turtle. Toronto / Vancouver : Clarke, Irwin &Company Limited, 1969. First Edition. Pp (8),[1]-184. 8vo, green cloth, gi lt lettering to spine. A novel by British Columbia author John Cornish. "In"A World Turned Turtle," John Cornish develops the very topical theme that a man who attempts to act on a moral issue, in opposition to prevailing so cial patterns, invites his own destruction. Enn Koort, a military policemanserving in London during the Second World War, is stirred to compassion by a chance encounter with his old maths teacher, an Estonian who has escaped across Europe to England. In a moment of commitment he appoints himself th e refugee's protector, defying corps discipline and his own personal conservatism to save Aadu Tief from deportation. The desperate game of hide and seek which follows is a traumatic experience for Koort - traumatic, yet at the same time exhilarating. The tragic outcome is inevitable; even the resourcetul Koort cannot control the forces of destiny. Cornish writes in a concentrated and evocative style. The characters of "A World Turned lurtle"are at once original and credible, the plot relentless. The psychoiogical impact of the novel is extraordinary." (from the dj).

Everything he has is gone -- his money, his wife, his children -- allbut his one great love: a 38-foot ketch called Sycorax. But to his horror the looted, vandalized shell of Sycorax lies rotting near Nick's former home, now owned by television star Tony Bannister. Bannister is shocked -- he had no idea! -- and immediately offers to help Nick retore the boat in exchange for a favour. Will Nick navigate Bannister's own yacht, Wildtrack, in a critical race? With trepidation, Nick accepts -- and is plunged into a maelstrom of deceit, corruption, and danger. For beneath Bannister's smooth words lies a web of disturbing questions. [...] As he desperately tries to unravel the tangled secrets that surround Wildtrack and its owner, Nick finds his own life on the line, human treachery battling the raging elements, as high winds sweep him toward a stormy mid-Atlantic 'killing ground' where it will take more than a sailor's skill to survive." - from the dj.

Everything he has is gone -- his money, his wife, his children -- allbut his one great love: a 38-foot ketch called Sycorax. But to his horror the looted, vandalized shell of Sycorax lies rotting near Nick's former home, now owned by television star Tony Bannister. Bannister is shocked -- he had no idea! -- and immediately offers to help Nick retore the boat in exchange for a favour. Will Nick navigate Bannister's own yacht, Wildtrack, in a critical race? With trepidation, Nick accepts -- and is plunged into a maelstrom of deceit, corruption, and danger. For beneath Bannister's smooth words lies a web of disturbing questions. [...] As he desperately tries to unravel the tangled secrets that surround Wildtrack and its owner, Nick finds his own life on the line, human treachery battling the raging elements, as high winds sweep him toward a stormy mid-Atlantic 'killing ground' where it will take more than a sailor's skill to survive." - from the dj.

"Major Sharpe and his men were in mortal danger -- but for once the threat did not come from the French. The Battalion's ranks were seriously depleted and the supply of new recruits from England seemed to have dried up. Unless the South Essex could bring reinforcements from the Second Battalion back in England, the whole regiment would be disbanded and the troops scattered throughout the British army. But Richard Sharpe is determined not to allow his regiment to die, not to let his men be victims of the bureaucrats who run the army from the remote comfort of London. His return to England, accompanied by Sergeant Harper, puts him more danger than he has ever faced at the hands of the enemy. First Major Sharpe is lauded as a hero in London. Then he finds that the men he has come to collect have vanished. To find the missing soldiers, Major Sharpe and Sergeant Harper themselves join the British army, disguised as the newest, rawest recruits. The conspiracy of corruption and deceit they find reaches from East Anglia to Whitehall. The well-bred, high-ranking traitors they are trying to uncover make the French seem easy enemies; any one of the conspirators could destroy Sharpe's whole career with a word, or stroke of thepen. To save his regiment, Sharpe is forced into the most desperate gamble of his life -- and not even the influence of the Prince Regent may be enou gh to save him." - from the dj.

Facing them is a wasted land, stripped of food by Wellington's orders, and Captain Richard Sharpe. But Sharpe is in trouble. Hisjob as Captain of the Light Company is under threat froma better connected officer and he has made a new enemy, a Portuguese criminal known as Ferrag us, who has devised a simple way of ingratiating himself with the French invaders who, he is certain, will be Portugal's new rulers. But Ferragus has not reckoned on Sharpe who, discarded by his regiment, wages a private war against Ferragus, a war fought through and beneath the burning, pillaged streets of Coimbra, Portugal's ancient university city. Sharpe's enemies are numerous but by his side he has Sergeant Harper, the Portuguese officer Jorge Vicente, and a prickly English governess whose first aim is to clean up Sharpe's language. The rivalry will take Sharpe and Ferragus south towards Lisbon, towards the trap that Lord Wellington has set, to the place where the French must be stopped; the massive lines of Torres Vedras. There, beneath the British guns, Sharpe will meet all his enemies in a swirling, bitterskirmish: there the French threat to Lisbon ends." - from the dj.

Gawilghur has never fallen to assault, and bolsteringits defences is the renegade Englishman, William Dodd, who escaped from Sh arpe in 'Sharpe's Triumph'.

Dodd is confident that not redcoat can reach him, but Sharpe is desperate and so he joinsWellesley's troops as they surge across the neck of land that leads to the breaches. There, in the horror of Gawilghur's ravine, dominated by walls a nd guns, he will fight as he has never fought before." - from the dj. Very good in clean, crisp, unclipped dustjacket.

"In the winter of 1814, Wellington's allied forces have finally established a base in enemy France, and preparations are afoot for an assault that will ensure Napoleon's defeat. For Richard Sharpe, however, the future looks as bleak as the January weather. Deprived of his command, he finds himself a minor pawn in the action, reluctantly leading a small force of Riflemen in support of a naval captain's foolish lust for glory. On the Biscay coast stands a formidable but virtually unguarded fort, ideally suited as a landing ground for the British invasion. Sharpe's task is to assist in the capture of the fort, and tolead a foray into the French interior to wreak havoc on Napoleon's supply lines. But behind the lines an old and implacable enemy, Pierre Ducos, is spinning a deadly web of his own, and Sharpe gets caught in it. Abandoned inthe heart of the enemy's country, Sharpe and his small force face overwhel ming odds. In such circumstances, a man must look for help wherever he can find it - even if it takes the dubious form of a charming and unscrupulous American mercenary, Cornelius Killick, who has his own good reasons for taking a hand in the game..." - from the dj.

"Only a year after its stunning victory at Talavera in July of 1809, Wellington's Peninsula army - vastly outnumbered, its coffers empty - was on the brink of collapse. The Spanish government had fallen, the last Spanish armies had been crushed by the French, and all that was left were the peasants fighting the guerrilla, the 'little war'. But Wellington had one hope left. He knew that in the dangerous Portuguese hills lay a fortune of gold, enough gold perhaps to turn the Peninsular War around. And he knew of one fighting man capable of stealing it: Captain Richard Sharpe of the South Essex Regiment. [...Thisis] the gripping story of Sharpe's secret mission, an adventure unlike any form of warfare Sharpe has known in his long and embattled career as a sol dier fighting his way up through the ranks. It pits him not only against the French, but against El Católico, the guerrilla leader waging his own war of terror, and his mistress, Teresa, a woman of wildcat beauty and fierce courage; against his own superiors such as Major Kearsey, a man as brave as Sharpe but governed by a different set of rules; and against the seduction and treachery of the landscape itself. Finally, it leads Sharpe and his men, foremost among them the indomitable Irishman, Sgt. Patrick Harper, to thefortress town of Almeida, to a momentous and ruthless decision, and to an unforgetably explosive climax." - from the dj.

"Richard Sharpe is once again at war, a war against Napoleon that depends not only on military strength and tactics, but on forces of cunning, cruelty, and secret intelligence. In Sharpe's Sword, the fourth novel in Bernard Cornwell's exciting series, and the richest, most surprising and suspenseful to date, the setting is the elegant medieval city of Salamanca in western Spain, and here Cornwell weaves aweb of captivating intrigue, with Sharpe at the center facing enemies know n and unknown. Colonel Leroux, working under direct orders from Napoleon, is a formidable enemy indeed. Trapped within the British-occupied city, thisassassin, a master of disguise and of the sword, is fixed upon El Mirador, code name for the spymaster whose identity must remain a secret even to Sh arpe, the protector. The lowborn Rifleman is thrust into an aristocraic world inhabitated by La Marquesa, an irrestistibly beautiful temptress whose embrace is as calculating as it is passionate; by 'Crazy Jack' Spears, a rakish officer whose dissolute charm masks a deadly corruption; and by Father Curtis, an Irish priest uncommonly active in secular affairs." - from the dj.

"The Gateway of God -- an out-of-the-way pass through the mountains of western Spain. At Christmastime in 1812 its tiny village of Adrados, once a place of religious miracle, becomes an unholy battleground of the Peninsular War, and Richard Sharpe, now a major in Wellington's army, is in the thick of it. Sharpe's enemies range from the vile army of deserters who have seized the convent of the village to French battalions threatening to smash their way through to Portugal; from the cold-blooded Parisian military strategist Pierre Ducos, to Sharpes own superior, the foolish Lord Farthingale. Foremost among the villains, however, is the sallow, twitching, utterly execrable figure of Obadiah Hakeswill, who brings tothe snow-bound, blasted end-game of this novel a knife's edge of tragedy. Sharpe's allies are few, but they include the redoubtable Irish giant Sergeant Patrick Harper, and a one-eyed captain, 'Sweet William' Frederickson, afighting man at once fierce and remarkably civilized. There is also Teresa , Sharpe's wife, the mother of his child, and a key soldier in the guerrilla war against the French.

"It is 1807 and Lieutenant R ichard Sharpe, newly returned to England, now wants to leave the army. One last job is offered to him. Go to Copenhagen, help the Honourable John Lavisser deliver a bribe and so stop a war. it seems very easy. But nothing is easy in a Europe stirred by French ambitions. The Danes possess a battle fleet that could replace every warship the French lost at Trafalgar and Napoleon's forces are gathering to seize it. The British have to stop them, while the Danes, caught between rival armies, insist on being neutral. Sharpe was not sent to Copenhagen to dabble in high politics, but to employ the lowskills he learned on the streets of London's slums. He is ordered to prote ct John Lavisser against the French agents who infest the Danish capital. It is a shadow war of spies and brutality in which Sharpe is a sacrificial pawn. But pawns can change the game and Sharpe, when he discovers a traitor in their midst, makes his own rules. He becomes a hunter inside a city besieged by British troops. A Danish army attempts to raise the siege, but is met by Sir Arthur Wellesley with a force of redcoats and riflemen. Copenhagen is doomed. When the Danes refuse to surrender, the city is subjected to amerciless bombardment that will leave hundreds of men, women and children dead. In a night of horror, as a city burns, Sharpe must protect a woman, hunt his traitor and stay alive." - from the dj. Very good in clean, crisp, unclipped dustjacket.

"It is 1805 and Ensign Richard Sharpe, having secured a reputationas a fighting soldier in India, is on his way home to join the newly forme d Green Jackets. The voyage should be a period of rest but his ship is riven with treachery and threatened by a formidable French warship, the Revenant, which is terrorizing British shipping in the Indian Ocean. An old opponent of Sharpe's is aboard his ship, and the voyage is further disturbed by the Lady Grace Hale, apparently as unreachable as she is beautiful. Sharpe also has friends, notably a captain in the Royal Navy who is hunting the Revenant and who rescues Sharpe when all seems lost. The hunt turns into a stern chase as teh French warship races home, carrying a treaty that could ignite India into a new war against the British. Yet when the Revenant encounters the combined French and Spanish fleets off Cadiz it seems that Sharpe'senemies have found safety, even as his enemies on board appear to have him trapped. Yet over the horizon is another fleet, led by Nelson, and Sharpe' s revenge will come in a savage climax when the two armadas meet on a calm October day off Cape Trafalgar." - from the dj.

February 23, 1944, London). "Paul Shanahan earns half a living as a jack of all the marine trades. The other half is a rish-American living in exile in Belgium, he has been suspected of IRA activity. He's also been accused of being a CIA agent. Shanahan, in short, is a scoundrel. Three weeks after Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, Shanahan is asked to deliver a boat from the Mediterranean to America. Its cargo is gold and his fee will be considerable. Ostensibly the gold has nothing to do with the Gulf War and everything to do with the Irish Troubles, but Shanahan hashis suspicions. He also has his eye a pension fund that will enable him to retire to his beloved Cape Cod, there to catch tuna and watch the sun set across the dunes. It was never going to be easy. Obstacles take the concrete - and murderous - form of the IRA, their Boston supporters, his own country's intelligence services, the British, and Saddam Hussein's Palestinian allies. Shanahan is also defying the ghost of his lost love, Roisin, inconveniently and painfully brought to life in the person of her inquisitive sister, Kathleen. Scoundrel plunges deep into the world of terror and those whowield it - for patriotism, greed or simple despair; a world where no man's loyalty is absolute, where every shadow can kill, and where nothing, not e ven gold, can be trusted."

"The war in Spain is drawing to a triumphant close for Wellington and the forces allied against the French, but in the winter of 1813 Napoleon's guileful intelligence agent, Pierre Ducos, conceives a devious plan that could force Wellington's army out of Spain without amusket being fired. That plot will hatch in the spring, and it will involv e a midnight murder, a shrewd priest of the Inquisition and his monstrous brother, the exiled King of Spain, and fabulous fortune of a widowed whore. The intention of the gambit is to destroy the fragile alliance between Britain and Spain, and its essential pawn will be Major Richard Sharpe, whose ignominious death would give Ducos a fine taste of personal revenge. Condemned as an assassin and sentenced by his own superiors to death by public hanging, Sharpe comes, apparently, to the end of the bloody and glorious career that began in the ranks so many years ago. [...] If he must die, he will die a soldier's death..." - from the dj. A couple of faint soiled spots to top edge, else very good in lightly chipped (rear-panel, bottom edge) dustjacket. 25.00

Facing them is a wasted land, stripped of food by We llington's orders, and Captain Richard Sharpe. But Sharpe is in trouble. His job as Captain of the Light Company is under threat froma better connected officer and he has made a new enemy, a Portuguese criminal known as Ferragus, who has devised a simple way of ingratiating himself with the French invaders who, he is certain, will be Portugal's new rulers. But Ferragus hasnot reckoned on Sharpe who, discarded by his regiment, wages a private war against Ferragus, a war fought through and beneath the burning, pillaged s treets of Coimbra, Portugal's ancient university city. Sharpe's enemies arenumerous but by his side he has Sergeant Harper, the Portuguese officer Jo rge Vicente, and a prickly English governess whose first aim is to clean upSharpe's language. The rivalry will take Sharpe and Ferragus south towards Lisbon, towards the trap that Lord Wellington has set, to the place where the French must be stopped; the massive lines of Torres Vedras. There, beneath the British guns, Sharpe will meet all his enemies in a swirling, bitter skirmish: there the French threat to Lisbon ends." - from the dj.

CORRIGAN, Mark. Bullets and Brown Eyes. London : T. Werner Laurie Ltd., (1948), First British Edition. Pp(4),5-287,(1). 8vo, blue cloth, maroon lettering to spine. Mark Corrigan is the pseudonym of Norman (Harold) Lee (1898-1964), a British film director and screenwriter. Bulets and Brown Eyes was his first book. "Mark Corrigan is a private investigator and sometime agent for the U.S. government. When he isn't globe-trotting about the world, he occasionally makes his home in Philadelphia, the city in which he grew up. As a youth he belonged to a rough Dead-End style gang, becoming its leader before reaching adulthood and giving it up to become a private eye. He worked that profession for a few years until Pearl Harbor and he joined the military. Seeing his former vocation and learning his skills at ferreting out trouble and taking care of it afterwards, Corrigan was assigned to Military Intelligence. For many months he fought with the Maquis in France undercover and then ended the War tracking down spies and sympathizers. When the hostilities ended and he was released from duty, he hung around London doing an odd job or two before heading back to Philly and his former job. For several years/adventures, Corrigan remains a private eye though his assignments, often for the American government, took his around the world. Eventually,an offer of full time employment came and Corrigan, loving the travel and the danger, took it. From then on, he was a fully licensed agent. There would be no way to call him a secret agent, however, because Corrigan had beenmaking it a practice to write about and publish the details (names changed when necessary) of his cases. For much of the adventures, Corrigan shared the danger and excitement with the lovely Tucker McLean, a pint-sized beauty who has the same tenacity as Corrigan. They become devoted lovers even though Corrigan continues to chase every female who comes within reach. The eponymously published Corrigan adventures were written by Norman (Harold) Lee." (from the Spy Guys and Gals website). "Blackmail, mystery, women and sudden death are the ingredients of this quick-fire Mark Corrigan episode. You might imagine that a detective who found himself in the dock at the Old Bailey charged with the murder of a man he never met, was not a very bright detective. But it didn't work out that way in the end. It wouldn't have happened at all if Mark Corrigan had been less of a sucker for glamour - blonde, brunette and coppertop. Four bewildering women - Tamara, Maria, Shirley and Claire - between them, manage to brew him quite a dish of trouble. Fortunately, Mark can take care of himself—and others !" (from the dj).
