    Dear readers, 
    We write to you with an urgent call to immerse yourself in the pages of "Silenced Voices: Testimonies of Life in Palestine." This book is much more than a set of stories; It is a bridge connecting distant realities and a window to the profound experiences of life in Palestine, a place where voices have historically been silenced. 
    Each page of this book offers a unique opportunity to understand the complexity of Palestinian history, from roots and identity to resilience, childhood, women, memories of the land, and reflections toward the future. It is an invitation to look beyond conventional narratives, to listen to individual voices that have been eclipsed by the noise of conflict and geopolitical tensions. 
    By reading "Silenced Voices," you will help challenge stigmas and prejudices, humanize the experiences of those who have faced unimaginable challenges, and build bridges of understanding. This book is a call to action, a reminder of the importance of empathy and solidarity in building a more just world. 
    We encourage you to share this call to action with friends, family, and communities. Invite them to join this journey of knowledge and understanding, so that together we can amplify these silenced voices and contribute to a more informed dialogue about the reality in Palestine. 
    Let us not allow these voices to remain silent. Let's make "Silenced Voices" a catalyst for change, a tool for education and an inspiration for action. Reading this book will not only enrich your perspective, but will also be an act of solidarity with those whose stories deserve to be heard.

    A railway historian chronicles the pioneering career of Richard Maunsell with a thorough account of the locomotive classes he built for the SE&CR.   As the Chief Mechanical Engineer of the South Eastern & Chatham Railway from 1913 to 1923, Richard Maunsell brought successful innovations to a number of steam locomotive classes. Notably, the D and E 4-4-0s were rebuilt as D1 and E1 locomotives with higher pressure boilers and long-travel valve events. Maunsell also made significant modifications to the L class—designed by his predecessor, Harry Wainwright—just before their delivery in 1914.   In the 1920s, Maunsell designed the L1 class for the 80-minute express line between London Victoria and Folkestone. He then built his masterpiece: the 3-cylinder V class—also known as the Schools class—for express services on all three constituent parts of the Southern Railway.   In this authoritative history, author and civil engineer David Maidment describes the design, construction, operations and performance of these locomotives. Maidment’s expert text is supported by more than photographs illustrating each class from their construction to their final demise in 1962. This volume also includes an update on the three Schools class locomotives that have been preserved and operate on Britain’s heritage steam railways.

    Siberia’s story is traditionally one of exiles, penal colonies, and unmarked graves. Yet there is another tale to tell.
    
    Dotted throughout this remote land are pianos―grand instruments created during the boom years of the nineteenth century, as well as humble, Soviet-made uprights that found their way into equally modest homes. They tell the story of how, ever since entering Russian culture under the westernizing influence of Catherine the Great, piano music has run through the country like blood.
    
    How these pianos traveled into this snow-bound wilderness in the first place is a testament to noble acts of fortitude by governors, adventurers, and exiles. Siberian pianos have accomplished extraordinary feats, from the instrument that Maria Volkonsky, wife of an exiled Decembrist revolutionary, used to spread music east of the Urals to those that brought reprieve to the Soviet Gulag. That these instruments might still exist in such a hostile landscape is remarkable. That they are still capable of making music in far-flung villages is nothing less than a miracle.
    
    The Lost Pianos of Siberia is largely a story of music in this fascinating place, following Roberts on a three-year adventure as she tracks a number of different instruments to find one whose history is definitively Siberian. Her journey reveals a desolate land inhabited by wild tigers and deeply shaped by its dark history, yet one that is also profoundly beautiful―and peppered with pianos.
