Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine.Toy 4269. "Few innovations in rowing have caused such widespread debate as the modern style developed by the Ratzeburger Ruderclub in Germany. On the International level this style has almost complete dominance, but in club and college competition it has had mixed fortunes because coaches do not understand its basic principles. This book contains a complete analysis of this style - the principles behind it, its appearance when done properly, andits performance characteristics — as well as chapters on faults in rowing, fitness training, psychology, and rig and equipment. It is an indispensabl e guide for any active oarsman. Paul Wilson did the formative coaching of the brilliant 1967 First and Third Trinity crew, which, was Head of the River in the Cambridge Lents and Mays, won the Ladies Plate at Henley, and beatthe Cambridge University crew in the Cambridge Regatta." - from the dj. Co ntents : 1. Introduction; 2. The International Modern Style; 3. Faults; 4. Training for technique; 5. Training for strength; 6. Psychology of rowing; 7. Rig and equipment.

WILSON. Angus. The Middle Age of Mrs. Eliot. London : Secker & Warburg, 1958. First UK Edition. Pp. (6),7-430. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

This novel won James Tait Black Memorial Prize for 1958.

Stape & Thomas, Angus Wilson : A Bibliography A9a.

"In her early forties, attractive, intelligent, gifted with humour and a sense of social responsibility, Meg Eliot is happy in her marriage to Bill, a brilliant barrister, a marriage which is still a living thing after twenty years; in her small eighteenth-century house near Westminster Abbey; in her circle of close friends; in her work for a volunteer organisation. Life in fact is good, and she looks forward to accompanying her husband to Singapore, where he he has been retained in an important law suit, and to the trip round the world which they have planned after the case is over.

Then on the voyage east disaster strikes. The structure of Meg's existence collapses. The Middle Age of Mrs. Eliot tells of her response to the changed circumstances of her life. Shall she take the advice of her friends to accept what life still offers? Her brother, David Parker, the stoic introspective, urges on her a quietist view. Or shall she respond to her real nature, to that zest and curiosity which impel her to build anew?

Mr. Wilson's novel explores new territories of the contemporary world, a commercial nursery garden near the South Downs where much of the action takes place; the seedy run-down lodging houses of Bloomsbury; the Gassington Secretarial College. It creates a new and rich series of characters - Lady Pirie, one of the new-poor aristocracy; Mr. Darlington, the professional social worker; Mr. and Mrs. Marriot, the consul and his wife in a difficult Middle-eastern post; "Climbers", the good-hearted, blundering amateur gardener; and her foil, the competent, ambitious, professional Tim Rattray; Donald Templeton, a pompous Edwardian bachelor; Miss Jones, the lesbian assistant in an art shop; Jill Stokes, widow of the naval officer in whose menory she lives, and a score of others.

Sombre, but shot through with humour, The Middle Age of Mrs. Eliot is a study of the sources of human will. it analyses the complex relationship between a siste and her brother, each faced with the terrifying problem of loneliness, and shows the different solutions discovered by each. Indeed, it digs deeper still and attempts to trace the fundamental but elusive energy, existing between good and evil, ehich proels the individual on his or her voyage through the world and which may rightly be described as the life-force." - from the dj.

WINCHESTER, Jim. Lockheed Constellation. (St Paul, MN) : MBI Publishing Company, (2001). Pp (5),6-128. Illustrated. Index. Double Column. 4to, illustrated brown card covers. "To many, the Lockheed Constellation epitomises airtravel in the piston-engined era. Few transport aircraft before or since h ave matched the dolphin-like, triple-tailed Constellation for sheer design elegance. The Constellation became the flagship of the great US airlines, and established the post-war international air routes for many of today's mega-carriers such as Air France, Lufthansa and QANTAS. The parallel militarycareer of the C-121 military Constellations could fill volumes by itself. As transports, they served the US Air Force and Navy, and a few other nations on missions all over the world, but in the new and specialised roles of early-warning, command-and-control, and electronic intelligence (FLINT), they were the ancestors of today's AWACS aircraft, an essential part of the modern battlefield. Only a few of the 856 Connies and Starliners that rolledoff the production lines between 1943 and 1958 remain today, and only a ha ndful of them still fly. These are almost all in the hands of wealthy collectors and enthusiasts' groups, and they can be guaranteed to attract a crowd wherever they go." (from the back cover). Contents : 1.

"For Peter Sinclair, a life at sea is in the blood - as he discovers when he takes the advice of his sailor father and leaves his job ina factory to join the Merchant Navy. In the Blood is the story of Peter Si nclair's first three years in the Merchant Service. His adventures in a round-the-world voyage and in tankers of the present day make exciting reading. They also give a fascinating record of the contrasts to be found at sea today between the fast disappearing and worn-out ocean-going cargo ships andthe superb technical vessels that comprise the modern cargo carrier. John Wingate has done a great deal of research at sea amongst the seafarers and in the ships of the British Merchant Navy and has talked freely to many members of ships' crews. In the Blood - the seventh book in the Submariner Sinclair series - is based on those experiences and is essential reading for anyone interested in a mercantile career. " " -from the dj.

Pp (4),v-xv,(1),1-255,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, copper lettering to front board and spine. "What is a city, and what forms did urbanization take in different times and places? How do peoples and nations define themselves and perceive foreigners? Questions like these serve as the framework for The Ancient Mediterranean World: From the Stone Age to A.D. 600. This book provides a concise overview of the history of the Mediterranean world, from Paleolithic times through the rise of Islam in the seventh century A.D. It traces the origins of the civilizations around the Mediterranean--including ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt,Israel, Greece, and Rome--and their interactions over time. The Ancient Me diterranean World goes beyond political history to explore the lives of ordinary men and women and investigate topics such as the relationships between social classes, the dynamics of the family, the military and society, andaristocratic values. It introduces students not only to the ancient texts on which historians rely, but also to the art and architecture that reveal how people lived and how they understood ideas like love, death, and the body. Numerous illustrations, chronological charts, excerpts from ancient texts, and in-depth discussions of specific art objects and historical methodsare included. Text boxes containing primary source materials examine such diverse subjects as warfare in early Mesopotamia, sculpting the body in classical Greece, the young women of Sappho's chorus, and early descriptions of the Huns. Combining excellent chronological coverage with a clear, concise narrative, The Ancient Mediterranean World is an ideal text for undergraduate courses in ancient history and ancient civilization."

60397 WINLAND, Daphne N. We Are Now a Nation : Croats Between 'Home' and 'Homeland.'. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2007, ISBN:9780802093462 
WINLAND, Daphne N. We Are Now a Nation : Croats Between 'Home' and 'Homeland.' Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2007). First Edition. Pp [i]-x,(2),[1]-224,(4). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. “The Yugoslav War of Succession had untold ramifications for those living in the embattled region. What often goes overlooked, however, is the impact that the war had on people from the former Yugoslavia who were livingabroad. We are Now a Nation considers the effect that the war and the inde pendence of Croatia had on Croatian diaspora-homeland relations. In doing so, it confronts complex questions of ideology, nostalgia, social suffering,nationalism, and identity politics as manifested in the relationship betwe en diaspora and homeland Croats. Daphne Winland draws upon extensive, multi-sited ethnographic research in both Toronto and Croatia from 1992 to the present, exploring the problematic nature of Croatian identity. The occasionof Croatian independence, she suggests, resulted in the emergence of a pol itics of 'desire' and 'disdain,' which further complicated efforts to define 'Croatness' (Hrvatstvo) both at home and abroad. The idea of the Croatianhomeland has become, therefore, an ambiguous space of identification, a so urce of either conflict and tension or unity and pride, a place to remember, to forget, or to return to. The first book-length examination of North American Croatian diaspora responses to war and independence, We are Now a Nation highlights the contradictions and paradoxes of contemporary debates about identity, politics, and place.” (from the dj). Contents : Introduction:On the Meaning(s) of Hrvatstvo – Croatness. 1. Locating Croatia in Diaspor a. 2. 'The War Made Me Croatian': Independence, War, and Identity. 3. 'We Are Not Fascists!' Toronto Croats and the Making of Croatia and Croats. 4. Ten Years Later: Siting Croatness and Home. 5. 'Going Home': From Longing toBelonging. Conclusion: Croats at a Crossroads.
