Montgomery, Bernard Law
Montgomery commanded the Eighth Army from 13th August 1942 until the 31st December 1943, and the 21st Army Group from 1st January 1944 until the German surrender on 5th May, 1945. These 2 accounts (concerned with the victorious campaigns of both Armies during the periods they were under his command) were written by him shortly after the end of the war, when they were published as separate books. The texts are taken from his personal war diaries and are distinguished by his incisive style. The whole strategy and course of these two campaigns are presented to the reader with great clarity and accuracy. There are 80 pages of 2-colour maps and diagrams. El Alamein was the turning point in the war: from that momentous battle the tide against Germany turned. During the time the Eighth Army was commanded by Monty it lost not a single action, and when Monty was transferred to Europe in December 1943, Winston Churchill wrote to him: 'The immortal march of the Eighth Army from the gates of Cairo along the African shore, through Sicily, has now carried its ever victorious soldiers far into Italy towards the gates of Rome.' In the second account: Normany to the Baltic, the Field Marshal unfolds that greater task - the planning and implementation of the greatest invasion the world has ever known - Operation Overlord. He describes the whole plan behind D Day and the Battle of Normandy. He continues with the battle for Caen and the capture of Cherbourg, the closing of the Falaise Pocket and the crossing of the Seine - through into the Low Countries and the battle of Arnhem and the famous Battle of the Ardennes. He concludes with the battle of the Rhineland, the crossing of the Rhine and the rush across northern Germany to the final surrender. N.B. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine bumped.

Burns, Kathryn
In "Colonial Habits" Kathryn Burns transforms our view of nuns as marginal recluses to one of central actors on the colonial stage. Beginning with the 1558 founding of South America's first convent, Burns shows how nuns in Cuzco, Peru played an active part in reproducing an Andean colonial order in which economic and spiritual interests were inextricably fused.Based on unprecedented archival research, "Colonial Habits" demonstrates how nuns became leading guarantors of their city's social order by making loans, managing property, containing 'unruly' women, and raising girls. The study also reveals, however, their active part in subjugating Incas and creating a Creole elite. Coining the phrase 'spiritual economy' to analyze the intricate investments and relationships that enabled Cuzco's convents to thrive, Burn explains how, by the late 1700s, this economy had faltered badly, making convents the emblems of decay and a focal point for intense criticism of a failing colonial regime. The book concludes with the nuns' post colonial retreat from their previous roles, marginalized in the construction of a new republican order. "Colonial Habits" will engage those interested in early modern economics, women in religion, Latin American studies, and the history of gender, class, and race. 307pp. N.B.

Vogler, Stephen
Consistently voted the number one ski resort in North America, Whistler - situated at the top of a narrow pass in the Coast Mountains 120 kilometres from Vancouver - sees two million visitors each year, even though the town itself only boasts a full-time population of 10,000. World attention has been increasingly focused on Whistler since 2003, when it was chosen to host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. "Top of the Pass" is the incredible story of how a cluster of modest log cabins called Alta Lake mushroomed into the glamorous year-round recreation Mecca known as Whistler. Stephen Vogler gives a rare glimpse of a mountain community and the lifestyles of its locals and visitors. Brimming with stunning colour photographs by Toshi Kawano and Bonny Makarewicz, this spectacular coffee-table book shows why Whistler is one of the most visited destinations in Canada.144pp.
