Flavin, Michael
December 2004 marked the bicentenary of Benjamin Disraeli's birth. "The Novel as Political Discourse" examines Disraeli's novels in order to construct a portrait of the man, his context and enduring reputation. Disraeli's literary career ran from 1826 to 1880. Within this time he became an M.P., Leader of the Opposition, Chancellor and Prime Minister. His novels can be read as the breeding ground for his ideas, gestated away from the pressure cooker of Parliament. From his first novel, "Vivian Grey", about the formation of a new political party, through to the overtly political 'Young England' trilogy (named after a faction of the Conservative Party with which Disraeli was aligned) and beyond, Disraeli's novels expose the development of his thinking while also reflecting the anxieties of his age. This book will appeal to those fascinated by Disraeli and Conservatism and anyone interested in the development of Britain in the Victorian era. The book enhances our understanding of this charismatic figure who continues to cast a formidable shadow across the nation's politics and culture. 221pp.

Marcus,Jon
This is both an exciting history and a tour guide, illustrating the fascinating development of the lighthouses of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Long Island. Marcus and Kelly explain and show the technological evolution of lighthouses, the development of lights and lenses, the architecture of lighthouses, their construction and maintenance on remote sites, the life of the Lighthouse Service keepers, and the movement today to preserve and restore lights. Also included are excerpts from original logs and a descriptive tour of the last manned lighthouse in America, Boston Light, with its three resident Coast Guardsmen and their dog. The stunning photography includes intriguing images of lights in all kinds of weather -- plus photographs that bring readers inside the structures, showing the curling stairways, lenses, the keeper's homes, and more. A comprehensive appendix lists all the current New England lighthouses. 160pp.
