Northern Ireland's '68: Civil Rights, Global Revolt and the Origins of the Troubles

Paperback, 01/08/2018, £17.99
£16.19
The Troubles may have developed into a sectarian conflict, but the violence was sparked by a small band of leftists who wanted Derry in October 1968 to be a repeat of Paris in May 1968. Like their French comrades, Northern Ireland’s ‘sixty-eighters’ had assumed that street fighting would lead to political struggle. The struggle that followed, however, was between communities rather than classes. In the divided society of Northern Ireland, the interaction of the global and the local that was the hallmark of 1968 had tragic consequences. Drawing on a wealth of new sources and scholarship, Simon Prince’s timely new edition offers a fresh and compelling interpretation of the civil rights movement of 1968 and the origins of the Troubles. The authoritative and enthralling narrative weaves together accounts of high politics and grassroots protests, mass movements and individuals, and international trends and historic divisions, to show how events in Northern Ireland and around the world were interlinked during 1968.

‘The only badgers I ever get to see are dead ones.’ ‘Well, if you keep seeing dead ones, their family can’t be far away.’ This throwaway conversation niggled, leading Caroline Greville to seek out her own neighbourhood badgers near her Kent home. She found them and was soon well-acquainted – so too were most of her family. A sense of interconnectedness developed as they had more badger contact than they could have hoped for. Badger Clan charts a simple quest that turns into a full-blown obsession. From loitering near a sett to working as local contact for a regional badger group, this memoir tells of wild encounters and gradual, intimate knowledge of the local clan. The story is rooted in rural village life, while the family are honestly depicted and relatable. A feel-good read in which enthusiast and elusive creature become inextricably bound.

Typology of British Cherry Blossom

£50.00
£45.00
Published May 2019 130 x 185 mm 256 pages Hardback clothbound, foil debossed front and spine Printed in a limited edition of 323 copies, on oldmill archival paper There are 323 indiginous cherry trees to the UK and so we are printing 323 copies of this book. Each will include a cherry blossom petal, dried and pressed. With 323 varieties, each book will be a unique – signed and numbered by Sam Vale Every year people around the world celebrate the arrival of spring with the blooming of the cherry blossom. The Japanese tradition of hanami, gathering in great numbers underneath the flowering trees, dates back to the eight century and even today it has its own cherry blossom forecast to predict when the flowers will open. Kent also has a long association with cherries. The cultivation of the county’s famous cherry orchards under the orders of Henry VIII, along with other fruit, was the reason why the county became known as The Garden of England. british-cherry-blossom-celebrated-and-recorded-for-the-first-time-in-text Kentish Morello Now for the first time, images of all 323 UK varieties of the fruit’s white flowers have been recorded. Canterbury Christ Church University academic and artist, Dr Sam Vale, has produced the complete collection of images that catalogues all the varieties in a new book. Complete and comprehensive records of cherry blossom have historically been difficult to reproduce in books as the delicate flowers are considered too uniform for traditional illustration to capture the slight differences between varieties. Sam, a Senior Lecturer in the University’s School of Media, Art and Design, explained: “A popular and well-recorded form of botany, the scientific study of plants, has been practised for over 200 years in books and catalogues. Pomology is the study of fruit trees, examining the cultivation of different and related varieties of tree, with the aim of improving and developing attributes such as taste, longevity and yield of popular fruits. “Historically, pomological books were drawn up to differentiate types of fruit using a classification process that can be used to identify different varieties and types. These beautifully and carefully illustrated books would include diagrams of the fruit, the leaves, branches and commonly the blossoms (particularly in apples, peaches and plums). In examining these historical sources, it came to my attention that the cher­ry, a tree that is revered for its blossom, was mainly represented by drawings of the fruit and leaves, rarely its delicate blossom. After some careful investigation, I discovered that cherry blossom was seldomly recorded because it was considered too uniform to recognise differences, and traditional illustration could not reveal the nuances and insignificant details that distinguished between cherry blossoms.” british-cherry-blossom-celebrated-and-recorded-for-the-first-time-in-text2 Archduke Using photography Sam has been able to accurately record and showcase the flowers’ subtle yet distinct differences to fill this void in the history and study of the cherry blossom. Sam was granted access to the National Fruit Collection, at Brogdale in Kent. This collection was designed to keep a pair of each variety of cherry available in the United Kingdom, with the aim of keeping an accurate record for scientific purposes and to retain some of the heritage variety that have fallen out of favour. Dr Matthew Ordidge, Scientific Curator for the National Fruit Collection, based at the University of Reading, said: “As a genetic resource collection, we make a wide range of material available to users, mainly graftwood and fruit samples, as well as leaves for analysis and pollen for breeding. I would have to say that Sam’s study of the collection was one of the more eclectic uses, and it is relatively rare for anybody to study the flowers on cherry in such fine detail. We were very pleased that the collection could be available to make this work possible.” Sam added: “Collecting is driven by two opposing ideas, the similarities of the items being acquired which connect under a scheme devised by the collector, for example stamps, clocks or books. Yet, simultaneously, the objects within the collection need to also have differences to distinguish them for each other and hold the interest of the collector. The joy of collecting is driven by noticing what is overlooked and cherishing the connected items for their individual characteristics. In the presentation of this collection it is hoped that the beautiful qualities and patterns of the project can come to the fore and demonstrate the value of looking again at things that might at first seem indistinguishable. Copies of the book will be donated to reference libraries and collections. Sam’s book, A Typology of British Cherry Blossom: Containing Coloured Images of the Most Esteemed National Fruit Collection at Brogdale will be published in May 2019 by GOST. Each book will include a unique pressed, dried cherry blossom petal.

TAM's Journey: The Beginning - Book 1

Paperback, 18/03/2019, £6.99
£6.29
Having worked with Children, young people and families for over 20 years, Amanda has used her extensive knowledge and training to create TAMs Journey. Her passion is to make all children and young people able to understand and accept rather than be fearful of FEELING. All collaborators on the books are local to Swale, Kent and I am immensely proud of their hard work to help me make this dream a step closer. TAM’s Journey – An Adventure 'Tams Journey - The beginning' introduces, through storytelling and endearing characters, how we process emotions and how this is the most NORMAL and one of the oldest bodily functions, now over stimulated’ As we move into an Era of increased awareness of our Emotional wellbeing and the impact on ourselves and society as a whole, it becomes clear that more ways of encouraging children to manage their emotional state in a much more effective and understandable way is needed. This first book in an ongoing series, introduces the Physiological process as part of a Journey of discovery for TAM and his new friend Hetty. Teaching Children and Young People the ‘how and why’ of emotions can remove stigma and calm some of the worry around reactions. By sharing a learning experience like a story they can develop their understanding of why we as a species respond to stimulus the way we do. This leads a greater self-awareness and in turn an opportunity to challenge some of those reactions. This book is the first in a series and is based upon my successful primary programme ‘The TAM Project’. “The story of Tam and Hetty clearly gives the reader an understanding of the many responses we have when we are afraid, confused or scared, beautifully written and illustrated and is a joy to read’. excerpt from the foreword.
