Markham, Leonard
York is one of the most visited cities in Europe, and in this book well-known Yorkshire author Len Markham explores many different facets of its long and extraordinary history - characters, institutions and achievements. We meet a Swiss confectioner who came to England to seek his fortune; on arrival in London, unable to speak a word of English, he was directed to the wrong station, boarded the wrong train and found himself in Yorkshire - where he founded the best-loved teashop in the country. We uncover the far from holy antics of York's former archbishops. We discover what prompted Hitler to order York's destruction. We shiver at the most haunted city in the world. And we learn all about 'Charlie Artful' - a detective who solved more murders than any other officer in the Murder Squad. This really is history with the boring bits left out - and anyone who lives in or visits the beautiful city of York will enjoy the tales that Len Markham tells. 151pp.

Schama, Simon
"Rough Crossings" is the astonishing story of the struggle to freedom by thousands of African-American slaves who fled the plantations to fight behind British lines in the American War of Independence. With gripping, powerfully vivid story-telling, Simon Schama follows the escaped blacks into the fires of the war, and into freezing, inhospitable Nova Scotia where many who had served the Crown were betrayed in their promises to receive land at the war's end. Their fate became entwined with British abolitionists: inspirational figures such as Granville Sharp, the flute-playing father-figure of slave freedom, and John Clarkson, the 'Moses' of this great exodus, who accompanied the blacks on their final rough crossing to Africa, wher they hoped that freedom would finally greet them. 447pp.

Thomas, Norman
Previous owner's signature on ffep.This volume is a reflection on some of the changes that have taken place in primary education over the last 20 years or so and that are likely to take place during the next few years. For the most part, the changes considered are those touching on the curriculum and methodology. Some important developments, like the changing relations between schools and parents, the changing roles of governing bodies and the local management of schools are considered only in passing.187pp.
