 A FIERY AND FURIOUS PEOPLE


This late summer season is always exciting as finished copies of autumn books begin to arrive. The first of these is the utterly magnificent magnum opus by Emeritus Professor James Sharpe A FIERY AND FURIOUS PEOPLE; A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE IN ENGLAND.

The book is the culmination of thirty years work as a leading social historian with a particular interest in crime and covers seven centuries of the brutal underside of our national life in all its variety. It is a work that I predict will be one of the most reviewed of the autumn and is an utterly transfixing read.

 RICHARD VAN EMDEN AT BBC'S SOMME ANNIVERSARY TRIBUTE


Leading historian of WW1 and bestselling author Richard van Emden was so impressive during the three hours the BBC devoted to the anniversary yesterday. He and Shirley Williams were the guests in the local studio with Huw Edwards and Richard's astonishing range of  knowledge and deep respect for those who fought and died were remarkable and very moving. His latest book THE SOMME is the bestselling title on the subject as I write. May the futility of war and  the jingoism that leads there be lessons learned by everyone.

Richard's new book, MEMORIAL about the incredible efforts made to locate and bury the dead of the Great War has just been signed to Bloomsbury for publication in 2018

 AS THE POLLS CLOSE......


IF WE AWAKE TO A COUNTRY THAT HAS CHOSEN TO ABANDON THE EUROPEAN PROJECT, 96% OF THOSE OF US IN THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES WILL BE IN MOURNING FOR A GREAT BRITAIN THAT HAS LOST ITS SENSE OF HISTORY, OF GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY AND OF HUMANITY. ANYONE READING THIS WHO IS UNCERTAIN HOW TO VOTE SHOULD LOOK AT SHEILA HANCOCK'S WONDERFUL SPEECH ON PAXMAN'S C4 SHOW LAST NIGHT AND BE INSPIRED...
