Summary

This carefully crafted ebook: “We (A Dystopian Science Fiction Classic) - The Unabridged Original 1924 Edition” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. 
 
We is a dystopian novel which is set in a dystopian future police state. D-503 lives in the One State, an urban nation constructed almost entirely of glass, which allows the secret police/spies to inform on and supervise the public more easily. The structure of the state is analogous to the prison design concept developed by Jeremy Bentham commonly referred to as the Panopticon. Furthermore, life is organized to promote maximum productive efficiency along the lines of the system advocated by the hugely influential F. W. Taylor. People march in step with each other and wear identical clothing. There is no way of referring to people save by their given numbers. Males have odd numbers prefixed by consonants, females have even numbers prefixed by vowels. Along with Jack London's The Iron Heel, We is generally considered to be the grandfather of the satirical futuristic dystopia genre. 
 
Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884–1937) was a Russian author of science fiction and political satire. Due to his use of literature to criticize Soviet society, Zamyatin has been referred to as one of the first Soviet dissidents.

    ‘A landmark new book’ Daily MailPrince William, Duke of Cambridge, is destined one day to be king. Determined to serve his country as his grandmother, the Queen has so selflessly done for seven decades, William is the epitome of a loving husband to Catherine, and a devoted father to their three children: George, Charlotte and Louis. 
    In public, William appears calm, balanced and determined. He is passionate about safeguarding the environment and helping to protect species under threat of extinction. The Duke and his wife have also worked tirelessly to remove the stigma that continues to mark mental health problems. 
    In private, however, those close to him say that William, while being a dedicated servant of the Crown can defy his calm, family-guy public demeanour. 
    This is the definitive account – insightful and nuanced – of the life of the Duke of Cambridge as he approaches his milestone birthday. Jobson explores the complex character of the man who will one day reign as King William V. It is the story of the making of a king for our times. 
    THE STORY OF THE MAKING OF A MONARCH FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY.

    Weary of her Yorkshire county life of grouse moors and hunt balls, Amelia Dalton threw herself instead into converting a deep sea trawler into a holiday cruiser. Unprepared by her background, she had to deal with the closed community of fishermen in NE Scotland in the '90s, negotiate red tape, oversee shipyards and deal with engineers, while coping with demanding shareholders and wayward employees. What began as a love affair with the romance of the sea became a battle to stay afloat – financially and literally. This is a lively account of an adventure like no other – and a voyage of self-discovery.

    Billy Congreve was an exceptional soldier and an exceptional man. By the time he was killed on the Somme in July 1916 at the age of twenty-five he had been awarded the DSO, MC, and the Lgion d'Honneur, and for his many deeds of gallantry on the Somme, a posthumous VC.Born into a military family (his father General Congreve had also won the VC) he became a regular soldier in the Rifle Brigade before the war, and in France became a staff officer, but one who chose to be in the front line as often as he could. This makes his remarkable diaries all the more valuable since he writes from the thick of the fighting and yet retains an objectivity that enables him to observe all that is going on around him both in the trenches and at headquarters.Terry Norman carefully edited the diary to set his story in the context of the war, and thus provide an exceptional picture of what an officer thought of the conduct of the war side by side with his personal grief at the loss of his friends and the wastage of human life.Out of print for over 30 years, this special centenary edition of this classic work includes a new foreword from esteemed military author Nigel Cave, as well as an expanded introduction from Terry's widow, Joan and a newly designed plate section. Detailing the extraordinary exploits of a truly remarkable man during the first two years of the war, this book is a compulsive purchase for all fans of the period.

    Joseph Lockwood was born in poverty next to his grandfather's mill in Southwell Nottinghamshire; from there he went on to become a world expert and author of the standard textbook on flour milling. In mid-life he turned from managing and designing flour mills to becoming Chairman of EMI, ' The Greatest Recording Organisation in the World'. A much sought after public figure, businessman and government advisor, he played a major role in building the National Theatre, restoring the Royal Opera House, as well as sitting on the Arts Council and becoming Chairman of the Royal Ballet. For twenty years his good friend William Cavendish worked alongside Sir Joe, as he was always known, when Sir Joe was the Chairman of EMI, and the last record company to remain in British ownership. This book is the story of how this relationship developed, as Sir Joe's prestige brought him ever increasing influence in industry and the arts, while William remained by his side, quietly observing in the background.
