The author defines rules for composing literary texts exhibited in the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek New Testament, reproduced in the Vulgate Latin Bible, and reflected in the Classical and Late Latin prose and verse from the first century BC to the sixth century AD. The transmission of this style to Anglo-Saxon England is illustrated by many Anglo-Latin, Old and Middle English texts from the 7th century to the 12th. By recovering conventions of encoding dates and self-reference the author identifies the origins of texts previously anonymous, including the patron, the poet, the recipient, and the date of presentation of the oldest English epic poem, Beowulf.

Angus & Robertson and the British Trade in Australian Books, 1930–1970

‘Angus & Robertson and the British Trade in Australian Books, 1930–1970’ traces the history of the printed book in Australia, particularly the production and business context that mediated Australia’s literary and cultural ties to Britain for much of the twentieth century. This study focuses on the London operations of one of Australia’s premier book publishers of the twentieth century: Angus & Robertson. The book argues that despite the obvious limitations of a British-dominated market, Australian publishers had room to manoeuvre in it. It questions the ways in which Angus & Robertson replicated, challenged or transformed the often highly criticised commercial practices of British publishers in order to develop an export trade for Australian books in the United Kingdom. This book is the answer to the current void in the literary market for a substantial history of Australia’s largest publisher and its role in the development of Australia’s export book trade.

This book is a collection of references and allusions found in printed works published from the beginning of printing in Britain through 1640. Arranged chronologically, these references augment those first gathered by Paget Toynbee in Dante in English Literature (1909) and Britain's Tribute to Dante in Literature and Art (1921), and others since. Indeed, by his systematic study of works in The Short Title Catalogue, Jackson Boswell more than doubles the number of references previously cited.

Black British Cultural Studies has attracted significant attention recently in the American academy both as a model for cultural studies generally and as a corrective to reigning constructions of Blackness within African-American studies. This anthology offers the first book-length selection of writings by key figures in this field. From Stuart Hall's classic study of racially structured societies to an interview by Manthia Diawara with Sonia Boyce, a leading figure in the Black British arts movement, the papers included here have transformed cultural studies through their sustained focus on the issue of race. Much of the book centers on Black British arts, especially film, ranging from a historical overview of Black British cinema to a weighing of the costly burden on Black artists of representing their communities. Other essays consider such topics as race and representation and colonial and postcolonial discourse. This anthology will be an invaluable and timely resource for everyone interested in cultural studies. It also has much to offer students of anthropology, sociology, media and film studies, and literary criticism.

'Who are these people? Look at what they eat.' Simon Majumdar travels the country to find out what British food -- from Arbroath Smokies to Welsh rarebit to chicken tikka masala -- reveals about British identity. Exploring the history of British food, he celebrates the wealth of fare on offer today, and meets the people all over the country -- the farmers, the fishermen, the brewers, bakers and cheese makers -- who have given the British reason to love their food again. Join Simon as he becomes a judge at the Great British Pie Competition (where, to his sorrow, he ends up judging vegetarian pies), as he learns to make Balti with a true Brummie, hunts for grouse, and sees seaside rock being made in Blackpool. EATING FOR BRITAIN is an impassioned and hilarious journey into the meaning of eating British.

Since its first publication in 1991, New Flora of the British Isles has become established as the standard work on the identification of the wild vascular plants of the British Isles. The Flora remains unique in many features, including its full coverage of all British wild plants, its user-friendly organisation, and its specially compiled keys and descriptions. This new edition includes the addition of more than 160 species, so that 4,800 taxa are now covered in varying degrees of detail. It also incorporates the new molecular system of classification based on DNA sequences. Furthermore, it includes 1600 species illustrations, rewritten distributions and an overhaul of the designation of degrees of rarity, with the introduction of a third, less rare, category. These revisions should ensure that this third edition remains the essential reference source for all taxonomists, ecologists, conservationists, plant hunters and biogeographers, whether they be researchers, teachers, students or amateurs.

British Conservatism and Trade Unionism, 1945-1964

This book examines the a brief period between the end of the Second World War and the election of Harold Wilson's Labour government in 1964, when the Conservative Party adopted a remarkably constructive and conciliatory approach to the trade unions, dubbed 'voluntarism'. During this time the party leadership made strenuous efforts to avoid, as far as was politically possible, confrontation with, or legislation against, the trade unions, even when this incurred the wrath of some Conservative backbenchers and the Party's mass membership. Making extensive use of primary and archival sources it explains why the 1945-64 period was unique in the Conservative Party's relations with the unions, and why, after 1964, things returned to a 'business as usual' confrontational approach.
