Every Dog Has Its Day by Max Cryer Summary

Why has Fido become a generic term for all dogs? Why did hundreds of people collect dog faeces – and sell it?Dogs never eat other dogs, so why is it a dog-eat-dog world? Did any dogs survive the 'Titanic'?What is a Yorkipoo?Do mad dogs really go out in the midday sun? 'Every Dog Has Its Day' pays homage to man’s best friend, telling the stories of famous dogs in history, tracing the origins of some of our favourite breeds, showing how dogs have become a significant part of our language, and describing the amazing range of activities in which dogs are involved. Written with Max Cryer’s characteristic light touch and sense of humour, this is a fascinating – and sometimes surprising – collection of historical facts and eccentricities of language. It will delight all dog-lovers and anyone with a morsel of interest in the world around them.

Agricultural English by Georgeta Raţă,Florin Sala,Ionel Samfira Summary

Agricultural English is a collection of essays on the English of Agriculture. The approach is a linguistic one: the different aspects of the English used in the field of agriculture (agricultural practices, agricultural systems) and in some fields related to agriculture (agricultural zoology, agri-tourism, biology, botany, ecology, entomology, gastronomy, land measurement, plant pathology, zoology) are analysed from a morphological (combination, derivation), syntactical (nominal phrases, verbal phrases), lexical and lexicographical, semantic (homonymy, semantic fields, synonymy, terminology), pragmatic (academic discourse, idiom, metaphor), etymological (etymon, Latin heritage), and contrastive (English–Croatian, English–French, English–German, English–Romanian, Romanian–English) points of view. The book will appeal to agriculturists, animal breeders, professors, researchers, students, and translators from Croatian-, English-, French-, German-, and Romanian-speaking countries, active in their own countries or abroad. The types of academic readership it would appeal to include academic teaching staff, researchers and students in the fields of agriculture and related fields – agricultural zoology, agri-tourism, biology, botany, ecology, entomology, gastronomy, land measurement, plant pathology, and zoology.

The Dogs and the Fleas by Frederic Scrimshaw Summary

Henry Ward Beecher, in a sermon shortly before his death, said America was going through a period of disgrace. This was true; for there had come to pass, what the prophetic Lincoln had foretold, that, as the result of the war, monopolies had been enthroned, that had filled the land with corruption and imperilled the liberties of the people. To-day the period of disgrace is worse than then, for the corrupt tree which was then bearing so luxuriant a crop has had several years more in which to develop its fruit-bearing capacity.

From Brown to Bunter by P. W. Musgrave Summary

Originally published in 1985. This is a fascinating account of the life cycle of a minor literary genre, the boys’ school story. It discusses early nineteenth-century precursors of the school story – didactic works with such revealing titles as The Parents’ Assistant – and goes on to examine in detail the two major examples of the genre - Hughes’s Tom Brown’s School Days and Farrar’s Eric. The slow development of the genre during the 1860s and 1870s is traced, and its institutionalisation by Talbot Baines Reed in, for example, The Fifth Form at St Dominic’s, is described. Many similar works were subsequently published for adults and adolescents, and the author shows how they differ from the originals in being critical in tone and written to a formula in plot and style. This development is discussed in relation to the changing social structure of Britain up to 1945, by which time to life of the genre was almost ended.

The Taming of the Tights by Louise Rennison Summary

Teens who adore Louise Rennison's heroine Georgia Nicolson will love her cousin Tallulah Casey even more! Meg Cabot, New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, raved, "Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson." In The Taming of the Tights, the third book in the (Mis)Adventures of Tallulah Casey series, Tallulah and her mates are back to finish their winter term at the Dother Hall performing arts program. And Tallulah is determined to finally show the world she's a true star of the stage! Out of the spotlight, Tallulah's life is filled with just as much drama. She's distracted by bad-boy Cain and trying her best to keep her accidental snog-session with him a secret. And although she is slowly beginning to think that maybe he's not so bad after all, she also continues to wonder about unavailable Charlie and dreamy Alex. Who would make the perfect leading man?

The Ardlamont Mystery by Daniel Smith Summary

The real-life mystery featuring the two men - Joseph Bell and Henry Littlejohn - who inspired the creation of Sherlock Holmes. December 1893. Arthur Conan Doyle shocks his legions of fans by killing off the world's favourite fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes. Meanwhile, in Scotland, a sensational real-life murder trial is playing out. Alfred Monson, a scion of the aristocracy, is charged with killing a young army lieutenant, Cecil Hambrough, on the sprawling Ardlamont estate. The worlds of crime fiction and crime fact are about to collide spectacularly. Among the key prosecution witnesses that the Ardlamont case brought together were two esteemed Edinburgh doctors, Joseph Bell and Henry Littlejohn. Bell - Doyle's tutor when the author studied medicine in the 1870s - had recently been unmasked as the inspiration behind the creation of Sherlock Holmes (Doyle said of Bell, 'It is most certainly to you that I owe Sherlock Holmes.'). But what the public did not know was that Bell and Littlejohn - a pioneer in the emerging field of forensic detection - had actually been investigating crimes together for more than twenty years. Largely unacknowledged, Littlejohn deserves equal billing as the prototype of Baker Street's most famous resident. In The Ardlamont Mystery, author Daniel Smith re-examines the evidence of the case that gripped Victorian Britain, putting forward his own theory as to why Cecil Hambrough was murdered. Outlining the key roles of the men whose powers of deduction and detection had so inspired Doyle, Smith explores the real-world origins of Sherlock Holmes through the prism of a mystery as engrossing as any case the Great Detective ever tackled. Will Bell and Littlejohn's shared faith in science and reason be enough to see justice win out?

Jordan’s Proverbs as a Window into Arab Popular Culture by Mohammed Farghal Summary

This book offers an insightful account of Arab popular culture through the lens of about four hundred annotated Jordanian proverbs. The collection touches on almost every aspect of daily life (including animals, kinship, religion, weather, generosity, money, food, and love). The proverbs cover a wide spectrum of morals related to competence, appearance, ignorance, naivety, corruption, wisdom, experience, courage, and kindness, among many others. Specialized readers, including linguists, translators, anthropologists, psychologists, diplomats, and military persons, among others, will find significant material and insights relevant to their work in this book. It serves to provide the reader with a better, deeper understanding of Jordanian/Arab mentality and behaviour, which will encourage intercultural communication and help remove several socially-biased stereotypes, in addition to enriching the culture of proverbs in human language.

Outdoor Sports In Scotland: Deer Stalking, Grouse & Pheasant Shooting, Fox Hunting, Salmon & Trout Fishing, Golf, Curling Etc. by Ellangowan Summary

This fascinating book of Scottish field sports was first published in London 1889 and is now extremely scarce in the first edition. We are now republishing it from the original text and illustration. The author, although an expert and experienced shooting man and salmon angler, did not write this book with any intention of teaching his readers "How to Sport.". Rather, its 406 pages are devoted to a comprehensive chronicle of the facts and figures, sporting records and natural history relating to the field sports of that period. Twenty four detailed chapters include: - Scotland's Most Famous Out of Door Sports. - Scotland's Deer and Grouse Grounds. - Deer. Natural History and Stalking. - Hare Coursing. - Rabbits for Sport and Food. - The Grouse Family. - Natural Economy of a Grouse Moor. - Pheasants and Partridges. - Other Birds of Sport. - Poaching. - Gamekeepers. - Supply and Value of Game. - Game in Larder, Kitchen, and Dining Room. - Salmonia. Natural History and Fishing. - Troutiana. - Trout and Sport in the Borders. - Vermin of the Moors and Manors. - The Fox and Foxhunting. - Golf. - Curling. - Patrons and Parasites of Sport. Etc. This unusual and eminently readable book can be thoroughly recommended for inclusion in the library of all true country sportsmen. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

On the way, he is shipwrecked, survives and meets the daughter of a pirate, whose men sell Don Juan as a slave. A young woman, who is a member of a sultan's harem, sees that this slave is purchased. She disguises him as a girl and sneaks him into her chambers. Don Juan escapes, joins the Russian army and rescues a Muslim girl named Leila.

Notorious Murders of the Twentieth Century by Stephen Wade Summary

The word 'murder' has always attracted widespread local and national media coverage. Once known, the story becomes the subject of discussion in a variety of places throughout the land. Some grisly tales become part of a culture that lives on for generations, whilst others, even by some of the worst serial killers, are soon forgotten. In this book experienced crime historian Stephen Wade has gathered together a collection of murders covering the entire twentieth century. Although famous in their own day, most are now forgotten by the general public, apart from the best true crime enthusiasts. The first conviction for fingerprint evidence, the last hanging in England and murderous husbands and wives are included; but there are also mysteries, unsolved killings and peculiar confessions. Meet the man who poisoned his rival's scones, a wrongful arrest and the acquittal of a good wife who shot her man dead. There are even tales from the Isle of Man, whose legislators continued to issue death penalties in the 1990s.

When Le Directeur suggests Le Guide's food inspector Monsieur Pamplemousse take a brief jaunt to sample the gastronomy of Rome, Pamplemousse knows the offer is too good to be true. But when the only string attached seems to be that on the return journey he escourt the Director's schoolgirl niece Caterina from her Rome convent school to her uncle's Paris home, Monsieur Pamplemousse begins to relax. Until, that is, he sees the schoolgirl in question ... and spots her every-present shadow, an Al Capone-lookalike whose hostility Pamplemousse senses even across a crowded restaurant car. However, it is when the Rome-Paris Express pulls into Gare de Lyon and his charge apparently disappears into thin air that Pamplemousse really begins to worry. Especially when he discovers the lustrous Caterina is the daughter of one of Sicily's most powerful mafiosi, a man who will not take the loss of his cherished daughter at all kindly...

His Promised Land: The Autobiography of John P. Parker, Former Slave and Conductor on the Underground Railroad by John P. Parker Summary

"Surpasses all previous slave narratives…Usually we need to invent our American heroes. With the publication of Parker's extraordinary memoir, we seem to have discovered the genuine article." —Joseph J. Ellis, Civilization In the words of an African American conductor on the Underground Railroad, His Promised Land is the unusual and stirring account of how the war against slavery was fought—and sometimes won. John P. Parker (1827—1900) told this dramatic story to a newspaperman after the Civil War. He recounts his years of slavery, his harrowing runaway attempt, and how he finally bought his freedom. Eventually moving to Ripley, Ohio, a stronghold of the abolitionist movement, Parker became an integral part of the Underground Railroad, helping fugitive slaves cross the Ohio River from Kentucky and go north to freedom. Parker risked his life—hiding in coffins, diving off a steamboat into the river with bounty hunters on his trail—and his own freedom to fight for the freedom of his people.

Wedge-tailed Eagle by Penny Olsen Summary

Australia’s Wedge-tailed Eagle belongs to the family of eagles, which together span the world. Eagles are powerful predators, with exceptional powers of flight and sight. They may kill to survive, but they also sleep, play, enjoy a bath, make tender parents, and form lasting relationships. This book gives a comprehensive overview of Australia’s largest true eagle and one of the country’s few large predators and scavengers. First appearing in Aboriginal rock-paintings more than 5000 years ago, the Wedge-tailed Eagle was little more than a curiosity to the early European settlers. The book traces the subsequent changes in perception—from its branding as a vicious sheep killer to an iconic species worthy of conservation—and covers distribution, habitat, hunting, relationships, reproduction and chick development. A final section deals with threats to the existence of this magnificent bird. Winner of the 2006 Whitley Award for Best Natural History of an Iconic Species.

Some Desperate Glory charts the progress of an enthusiastic and patriotic young officer who marched into battle with Palgraves Golden Treasury in his pack. Intensely honest and revealing, his diary evokes the day-to-day minutiae of trench warfare: its constant dangers and mind-numbing routine interspersed with lyrical and sometimes comic interludes. Vividly capturing the spirit of the officers and men at the front, the diary grows in horror and disillusionment as Vaughans company is drawn into the carnage of Passchendaele from which, of his original happy little band of 90 men, only 15 survived.

As Tom drives his team across the plains of the Riverina and northern Victoria, he gets entangled in the fate of others like Rory O'Halloran, the two Alfs (Nosey and Warrigal) and Hungry Buckley of Baroona recreating the humour, the pathos, the irony of life in the bush. His is the tough-talking, law-dodging world of the 1880s, where swagmen and bullockies slept under the stars with 'grandeur, peace and purity above; squalor, worry and profanity below'. These inspired yarns, 'fatally governed by an inveterate truthfulness', are woven into one of the greatest books of Australian literature, combining a genius for story-telling with a wry wit and a deep feeling for the harsh sun-baked land and the people who worked it. Joseph Furphy was born at Port Phillip, Victoria, in 1843. 'Half bushman and half bookworm', Furphy worked as a goldminer, labourer and farmer before coming to the profession that would inspire Such Is Life, bullock driving. In 1904 he settled in Fremantle, Western Australia, to join his children. Such Is Life was originally published in 1903 and was soon regarded as one of Australia's great novels. Furphy's three other books - Poems, Rigby's Romance and The Buln Buln and the Brolga - were all published after his death in 1912.

The Walls of Jericho by Paul Iselin Wellman Summary

The story is set in the fictional town of Jericho, Kansas. David Constable comes to Jericho to practice law. He becomes fast friends with Tucker Wedge, owner of the newspaper. David meets and marries Belle Dunham. The friendship between David and Tucker continues until Tucker returns from Illinois with a wife of his own, Algeria Wedge. The Walls of Jericho is essentially the story of the ambitious Algeria Wedge who breaks the friendship between the two men. Paul Wellman uses no subtleties or shaded comparisons. He has painted a full-bodied canvas of a locale and an era which have been neglected in American fiction. There are many Jerichos in the sunflower state and few better novels have ever been written of them.—The New York Times, February 2, 1947. The book was made into a movie in 1948 and starred Cornel Wilde, Kirk Douglas, Linda Darnell and Anne Baxter.

Nineteenth-Century British Music Studies by Peter Horton,Bennett Zon Summary

Originally published in 2003 and selected from papers given at the third biennial conference on Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain, this volume, in common with its two predecessors, reflects the interdisciplinary character of the topic. The introductory essay by Julian Rushton considers some of the questions that are key to this area of study: what is the nineteenth century, what is British music, and did London influence the continent? The essays that follow are divided into broad thematic groups covering aspects of gender, church music, national identity, and local and national institutions. This collection illustrates that while nineteenth-century British music studies is still in its infancy as a field of research, it is one that is burgeoning and contributing to our understanding of British social and cultural life of the period.

Boys Will Be Boys by E. S. Turner Summary

E.S. Turner's first book, published in 1948, is a wholly original, richly researched and uncommonly insightful study of a somewhat disreputable genre: the 'Boys' Weekly' papers commonly known as 'penny dreadfuls.' 'A classic of its kind... [Turner] ploughed through back numbers of the old blood-and-thunder adventure magazines specialising in cliffhanger serials; the young hero would be left hanging over a cliff in a totally impossible situation, which would be easily resolved in the next issue: 'With one bound Jack was free.' Social history had never been as much fun or, with three extra printings in its first week - such was the demand - as profitable.' Jonathan Sale, Guardian 'Some people felt that E.S. Turner may have invented a new kind of book - the popular social history, very British, very funny, but written with a glistening elegance.' Andrew O'Hagan, London Review of Books
