    In her essay on Jacquetta, Philippa Gregory uses original documents, archaeology and histories of myth and witchcraft to create the first-ever biography of the young duchess who was to survive two reigns and two wars to become the first lady at two rival courts. David Baldwin, established author on the Wars of the Roses, tells the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the first commoner to marry a king of England for love, and Michael Jones, fellow of the Royal Historical Society, writes of Margaret Beaufort, the almost-unknown matriarch of the House of Tudor. The Women of the Cousins’ War will appeal to all.

    Our world today - from the phone in your pocket to the car that you drive, the allure of social media to the strategy of the Pentagon - has been shaped irrevocably by the technology of silicon transistors. Year after year, for half a century, these tiny switches have enabled ever-more startling capabilities. Their incredible proliferation has altered the course of human history as dramatically as any political or social revolution. At the heart of it all has been one quiet Californian: Gordon Moore.

    Mass Motorization and Mass Transit examines how the United States became the world's most thoroughly motorized nation and why mass transit has been more displaced in the United States than in any other advanced industrial nation. The book's historical and international perspective provides a uniquely effective framework for understanding both the intensity of US motorization and the difficulties the country will face in moderating its demands on the world's oil supply and reducing the CO2 emissions generated by motor vehicles.

    Do Not Adjust Your Set is a 60s comedy show comprised mostly of satirical sketches, often presented in a bizarre, surreal and disjointed manner - much like that of Monty Python's Flying Circus, a subsequent show which several of the cast became part of. An important Monty Python predecessor and arguably one of the finest children's sketch comedies ever produced, DNAYS is certainly something you do not want to miss. This volume features a compilation of classic sketches from the show.

    Promising Forecast is the true story of five men who start out on a well-planned and exciting deep-sea fishing trip that quickly turns into a harrowing experience. Without any warning, their boat suddenly sinks 30 miles offshore. Shocked and disoriented, they find themselves stranded and helpless in the water for almost 19 hours with only lifejackets and a strong will to live. Each man reacts as the realities of danger and death confront them.

    Zurich, that decorous Swiss city, is already preparing to celebrate next year the centenary of Dada. A preliminary brochure provides a map showing 80 sites in the city with associations to Tristan Tzara, Hugo Ball and his companion Emmy Hennings, Walter Serner, Hans Arp, and a few more, all of them fathers (and a mother or two) of Dadaism. Who, you ask, who? Forgotten, the whole lot of them, and yet they did their bit to shift contemporary culture.
