Britain in Revolution: 1625-1660
This is the definitive history of the English Civil War, set in its full historical context from the accession of Charles I to the Restoration of Charles II. These were the most turbulent years of British history and their reverberations have been felt down the centuries. Throughout the middle decades of the seventeenth century England, Scotland, and Ireland were convulsed by political upheaval and wracked by rebellion and civil war. The Stuart monarchy was in abeyance for twenty years in all three kingdoms, and Charles I famously met his death on the scaffold. Austin Woolrych breathes life back into the story of these years, the sweep of his prose buttressed by the authority of a lifetime's scholarship. He captures the drama and the passion, the momentum of events and the force of contingency. He brilliantly interweaves the history of the three kingdoms and their peoples, gripping the reader with the fast-paced yet always balanced story.

Finally back in print and now in audio – David Foster Wallace and Mark Costello's exuberant exploration of rap music and culture.

Signifying Rappers (Audiobook)
Living together in Cambridge in 1989, David Foster Wallace and longtime friend Mark Costello discovered that they shared "an uncomfortable, somewhat furtive, and distinctively white enthusiasm for a certain music called rap/hip-hop." The book they wrote together, set against the legendary Boston music scene, mapped the bipolarities of rap and pop, rebellion and acceptance, glitz and gangsterdom. Signifying Rappers issued a fan's challenge to the giants of rock writing, Greil Marcus, Robert Palmer, and Lester Bangs: Could the new street beats of 1989 set us free, as rock had always promised?

Available again at last, Signifying Rappers is a rare record of a city and a summer by two great thinkers, writers, and friends. With a new foreword by Mark Costello on his experience writing with David Foster Wallace, this reissue cannot be missed.

Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945 by Charles Whiting

In the closing says of World War Two, German resistance to the Nazis was growing. This is the dramatic true story of one act of rebellion.

Werewolf: The Story of the Nazi Resistance Movement 1944-1945
The Werewolves were formed in November 1944, having been recruited and trained by SS Police General Gutenberger.

A team of five men and a woman was chosen for "Operation Carnival", which was a plot to kill Franz Oppenhoff, the new mayor of Aachen, who the Germans saw as an American stool-pigeon and traitor.

‘Werewolf’ skilfully recreates the atmosphere of unease that prevailed on both sides during the final months of the Second World War.

‘Warewolf’ outdoes the best spy novel and demonstrates yet again that ‘fiction’ cannot hold a candle to ‘fact’ when coming from the pen of a master of Charles Whiting’s stature.

'A fascinating insight into the hidden war. I learned something new on every page.' – Tom Kasey, best-selling author of 'Trade Off'.

Charles Whiting is the author of numerous history books on the Second World War. Under the pen name of Leo Kessler he also wrote a series of best-selling military thrillers, including ‘Guns at Cassino’ and ‘Valley of the Assassins’.
