The Life and Times of Sir Reginald Tubb answers the age-old question: Can a bathtub of noble birth find happiness in a forest populated mainly by nice but not-very-bright bears? At last, a story celebrating that unsung hero of family life, the bathtub! This noble fixture magically comes to life as the central character in this tale set in the topsy-turvy world of the Forest Green. A surprise has been discovered in the forest by a family of bears. They take the wondrous tub-like object home to their lair, but what is it? No one in the forest has a clue but everyone has a firm opinion (not unlike some humans we know). Will Sir Reginald Tubb remain unfulfilled? When misfortune intervenes, will he survive or perish? Or will he be abandoned once again? And what lesson can the reader learn from all this? We're not telling. Told in cleverly rhymed verse and delightful illustrations in a dreamlike watercolour-effect palette, this fanciful tale will appeal to young readers, preschoolers, and the parents and grandparents who read to them. "A must-read for bears and little animals of all ages!" says the Forest Green Gazette.

The Oxford History of the British Empire is a major new assessment of the Empire in the light of recent scholarship and the progressive opening of historical records. From the founding of colonies in North America and the West Indies in the seventeenth century to the reversion of Hong Kong to China at the end of the twentieth, British imperialism was a catalyst for far-reaching change. The Oxford History of the British Empire as a comprehensive study helps us to understand the end of Empire in relation to its beginning, the meaning of British imperialism for the ruled as well as for the rulers, and the significance of the British Empire as a theme in world history. This fifth and final volume shows how opinions have changed dramatically over the generations about the nature, role, and value of imperialism generally, and the British Empire more specifically. The distinguished team of contributors discuss the many and diverse elements which have influenced writings on the Empire: the pressure of current events, access to primary sources, the creation of relevant university chairs, the rise of nationalism in former colonies, decolonization, and the Cold War. They demonstrate how the study of empire has evolved from a narrow focus on constitutional issues to a wide-ranging enquiry about international relations, the uses of power, and impacts and counterimpacts between settler groups and native peoples. The result is a thought-provoking cultural and intellectual inquiry into how we understand the past, and whether this understanding might affect the way we behave in the future.
A consolidated index to biographical sketches in current and retrospective biographical dictionaries.
Keith Douglas enlisted when World War II began, to fight and to try to make sense of history from within its turbulence. Like the major poets of World War I, his art was tried and tempered, and then curtailed. His letters tell the story of a man fully engaged by his art, his times and his loves.
