It was a simple task of buying another house for Pidgley Properties. When two corpses are found, James Pidgley is inadvertently forced to solve the crimes against a background of police prejudices. The first body was buried under the road fifty years earlier at the height of the Queen's Coronation celebrations. The second body is found in the living room of the house while it was still dressed for an amateur film. The deceased was the estate agent who was selling the house. James' father is arrested for the murder only because he once lived in this house as a child. Brian Steel and Dave Lilly, the local wan-a-be drug dealers, fearing their consignment of prescription drugs would be found decide to kidnap James' sister. They hope to distract James from uncovering what really happened the night the Estate agent died. James befriends one of Brian and Dave's cohorts, Trevor. And together they rescue James's sister from near death. Trevor and James trap the drug dealers and get them to confess to the murder. At a family celebration James has second thoughts about the validity of their confession. A life-threatening chase ensues where James uncover a fifty-year-old secret and the identity of the real killers. Coronation Souvenir is the first novel in the James Pidgley series, and the debut of mystery crime author, Edward Arno.

Culinary Landmarks is a definitive history and bibliography of Canadian cookbooks from the beginning, when La cuisinière bourgeoise was published in Quebec City in 1825, to the mid-twentieth century. Over the course of more than ten years Elizabeth Driver researched every cookbook published within the borders of present-day Canada, whether a locally authored text or a Canadian edition of a foreign work. Every type of recipe collection is included, from trade publishers' bestsellers and advertising cookbooks, to home economics textbooks and fund-raisers from church women's groups. The entries for over 2,200 individual titles are arranged chronologically by their province or territory of publication, revealing cooking and dining customs in each part of the country over 125 years. Full bibliographical descriptions of first and subsequent editions are augmented by author biographies and corporate histories of the food producers and kitchen-equipment manufacturers, who often published the books. Driver's excellent general introduction sets out the evolution of the cookbook genre in Canada, while brief introductions for each province identify regional differences in developments and trends. Four indexes and a 'Chronology of Canadian Cookbook History' provide other points of access to the wealth of material in this impressive reference book.

This book explores the recreation and subsequent development of the British Monarchy during the twentieth century. Contributors examine the phenomenon of modern monarchy through an exploration of the establishment and the continuing impact of the Windsor dynasty both within Britain and the wider world, to interrogate the reasons for its survival into the twenty-first century. The successes (and failures) of the dynasty and the implications of these for its long-term survival are assessed from the perspectives of constitutional, political, diplomatic and socio-cultural history. Emphasis is placed on the use of symbols and tradition, and their reinvention, and public reactions to their employment by the Windsors, including the evidence provided by opinion polls. Starting with George V, and including darker times such as the challenge of the abdication of Edward VIII, this collection considers how far this reign was a key transition in how the British royal family has perceived itself and its role through examination of the repackaging for mass consumption via the media of a range of state occasions from coronations to funerals, as well as modernization of its relations with the military.
