After the success of his trilogy of London books, Another Man’s London, London Lives, and London Tales, author, journalist and London guide, Terence Jenkins turns his attention further afield. We follow him from Cumbria to Kent, from Surrey to Suffolk, from Dorset to his home country, Wales, meeting on the way remarkable inhabitants and hearing lesser-known stories. This lively collection of bite-size chunks of our nation’s history will entertain and inform you. Do you know where the smallest town hall in an infamous ‘rotten borough’ is? What is a snotty-gog and what has it to do with Pontius Pilate? How do you test if amber is real? What was the Yangtze Incident and how is it connected to the Surrey village of Tandridge? Would Nelson have had all the ships he needed at Trafalgar if it were not for an early ‘eco-warrior’? Who was ‘ the first person (known) to have introduced inoculation’? What have Whitehall and the Ashdown forest got in common? Who was the inspiration for ‘The Ancient Mariner’? Who played a cello in a wood with nightingales (which was one of the BBC’s first outside broadcasts)?And to whom is the Dickin Medal awarded? The answers to these questions and many more will be found in this fascinating illustrated collection which is a perfect companion for a stroll or post-prandial relaxation in an easy chair.

Further Afield, is a beautiful, unusual collection of photographs depicting Polly Pullar's fascination with the countryside in all its aspects. The diverse chapters illustrate her deep passion and seeing eyes for subjects ranging from the monumental sea stacs of remote St Kilda, to the tiniest details of back-lit floral studies. Polly's sensitivity and artistry shines in each varied image, her tangible affinity with nature apparent throughout. Wildlife subjects include chapters on the Bass Rock, the Isle of May, and the Orcadian Islands, North Ronaldsay. Many other creatures have been taken closer to home. There are amusing views of goats, sheep, ponies, dogs and a wealth of other animals, from deer to owls and domestic fowls. The relationship between the photographer and her subjects will delight. The book's design has been completed by the author's teenage son, Freddy, and shows great creativity with its stunninglayouts. This charming book will appeal to all ages

Already a regional and global centre for business and finance, Dubai’s reputation has been bolstered by the MSCI’s decision to upgrade the UAE from frontier to emerging market status in 2014, while the emirate’s successful Expo 2020 bid is expected to generate myriad opportunities for private investors across a range of sectors. Construction is thriving once again, driven in large part by strong retail sector growth, with various projects, including plans for the world’s largest mall, indicating that the sector will maintain its position as the emirate’s biggest GDP contributor moving forward. The transport and logistics framework is set for major expansion in the coming years as well, furthering cementing the emirate’s status as a leading transport and logistics hub not just regionally, but globally too. The continued development of Dubai’s retail and hospitality offerings, alongside the upgrades to its airports, should help to ensure robust growth in visitor numbers from both the region and further afield.

In Renate's spellbinding story, we're taken along on an incredible journey of survival that spans three countries and one remarkable life. In sun-soaked pages, Renate shows us life on the kibbutz and how a young country experiences the miracle of statehood. Part of Renate's gift is to give us vibrantly real and intimate glimpses of what it's like to be a young mother, nurse and doting wife during turbulent times and in a strange land. She doesn't sugarcoat, but instead shows us both the pleasures and the perils of her life, including the terrifying time when she and her husband, back in Israel, are separated from their children during the Yom Kippur War. Fearlessly honest in her writing, Renate spares no detail. This outstanding book occasionally breaks the fourth wall, allowing the author to talk with readers and reveal to them how freeing it has been for her to write about the traumas in her life. This boldness and strength of spirit give From the Promised Land to the Lucky Country its shining truth and intimacy. “We are meant to enjoy the earth.” Renate says, and in this moving memoir, we experience a woman who has, despite all the odds, found purpose and peace.– Ellen Tanner MarshNew York Times best-selling author
