Summary

Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Illustrated Edition)' is a haunting narrative poem that explores themes of redemption, spirituality, and the supernatural. The poem's distinctive poetic style, characterized by its use of archaic language and vivid imagery, has cemented its place as a classic of English literature. Set against the backdrop of the sea, the story follows the Mariner's harrowing journey of guilt and atonement after he senselessly kills an albatross. Through its powerful storytelling and moral allegory, Coleridge's work challenges readers to reflect on the consequences of their actions and the nature of forgiveness. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, a prominent Romantic poet and philosopher, drew inspiration for 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' from various sources, including his own personal experiences and the folklore of the time. His deep interest in the supernatural and the metaphysical shines through in this work, as he explores themes of sin and redemption with profound insight and sensitivity. I highly recommend 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Illustrated Edition)' to readers who appreciate thought-provoking literature that delves into the complexities of human nature and morality. Coleridge's masterful storytelling and imaginative vision make this edition a must-read for lovers of poetry and Gothic fiction alike.

    Aloha Betrayed - Native Hawaiian...

    In 1897, as a white oligarchy made plans to allow the United States to annex Hawai'i, native Hawaiians organized a massive petition drive to protest. Ninety-five percent of the native population signed the petition, causing the annexation treaty to fail in the US Senate. This event was unknown to many contemporary Hawaiians until Noenoe K. Silva rediscovered the petition in the process of researching this book. With few exceptions, histories of Hawai'i have been based exclusively on English-language sources. They have not taken into account the thousands of pages of newspapers, books, and letters written in the mother tongue of native Hawaiians. By rigorously analyzing many of these documents, Silva fills a crucial gap in the historical record. In so doing, she refutes the long-held idea that native Hawaiians passively accepted the erosion of their culture and loss of their nation, showing that they actively resisted political, economic, linguistic, and cultural domination. Drawing on Hawaiian-language texts, primarily newspapers produced in the nineteenth century and early twentieth, Silva demonstrates that print media was central to social communication, political organizing, and the perpetuation of Hawaiian language and culture.

    TV presenter and all-round car nut Ant Anstead takes the reader on a journey that mirrors the development of the motor car itself from a stuttering 20mph annoyance that scared everyone’s horses to 150mph pursuits with aerial support and sophisticated electronic tracking. 
    The British Police Force’s relationship with the car started by chasing after pioneer speeding motorists on bicycles. As speed restrictions eased in the early twentieth century and car ownership increased, the police embraced the car. Criminals were stealing cars to sell on or to use as getaway vehicles and the police needed to stay ahead, or at least only one step behind. The arms race for speed, which culminated in the police acquiring high-speed pursuit vehicles such as Subaru Impreza Turbos, had begun. 
    Since then the car has become essential to everyday life. Deep down everyone loves a police car. Countless enthusiasts collect models in different liveries and legendary police cars become part of the nation’s shared consciousness. 
    Ant Anstead spent the first six years of his working life as a cop. He was part of the armed response team, one of the force’s most elite units. In this fascinating new history of the British police car, Ant looks at the classic cars, from the Met’s Wolseleys to the Senator, the motorway patrol car officers loved most, via unusual and unexpected police vehicles such as the Arial Atom. It’s a must-read for car enthusiasts, social historians and anyone who loves a good car chase, Cops and Robbers is a rip-roaring celebration of the police car and the men and women who drive them. 
    Ant Anstead's Cops and Robbers is a thrilling ride through the evolution of automotive technology and its impact on Britain's police force. It's a top pick for anyone interested in engineering, history, and the adrenaline-fueled world of high-speed pursuits. 
    For fans of Edd China (Grease Junkie), and Colin Breen (A Force Like No Other).
