****The nation's favourite cartoonist - Express**** Giles enthusiasts will be thrilled with this latest collection of classic cartoons. Capturing Giles's trademark style and British humour, the 2021 annual takes a look at the biggest names of the 20th century, from politicians such as Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher to members of the royal family such as Princess Margaret and Queen Elizabeth. Giles also brilliantly details the celebrities whose names and stories were swept up by the national press during the 20th Century. From Christine Keeler, an English model who was at the centre of the Profumo Affair during the 1960s to Michael Fish, the BBC weather correspondent, who was lampooned for underestimating The Great Storm of 1987. Fans of Giles will be delighted to receive the latest annual compilation featuring 150 cartoons to enjoy from the archives of one of the most celebrated cartoonists of the once biggest selling daily newspaper in the world, the Daily Express, whose work led to him being voted the best cartoonist of the 20th century.

This volume explores how the visual arts are presenting and responding to Christian theology and demonstrates how modern and contemporary artists and artworks have actively engaged in conversation with Christianity. Modern intellectual enquiry has often been reluctant to engage theology as an enriching or useful form of visual analysis, but critics are increasingly revisiting religious narratives and Christian thought in pursuit of understanding our present-day visual culture. In this book an international group of contributors demonstrate how theology is often implicit within artworks and how, regardless of a viewer’s personal faith, it can become implicit in a viewer’s visual encounter. Their observations include deliberate juxtaposition of Christian symbols, imaginative play with theologies, the validation of non-confessional or secular public engagement, and inversions of biblical interpretation. Case studies such as an interactive Easter, glow-sticks as sacrament, and visualisation of the Bible’s polyphonic voices enrich this discussion. Together, they call for a greater interpretative generosity and more nuance around theology’s cultural contexts in the modern era. By engaging with theology, culture, and the visual art, this collection offers a fresh lens through which to see the interaction of religion and art. As such, it will be of great use to those working in Religion and the Arts, Visual Art, Material Religion, Theology, Aesthetics, and Cultural Studies.

Cutting a wide east-west swath from the Appalachian foothills to the heart of the western Kentucky coalfields, the Green River valley extends from below the Tennessee border in the south to the Ohio River in the north. The Green River of Kentucky presents a picture of the unity and diversity of the people living in the Green River valley. Helen Bartter Crocker finds that each generation of its people approached the river in a distinctive way. Early settlers used the river simply as it was -- crooked and narrow with an unpredictable water flow, and navigable only under high-water conditions. The sons of these pioneers were interested in bringing steamboats to the valley; until they succeeded in persuading the state legislature to improve the Green River and its tributary, the Barren, by a series of locks and dams, however, volunteers would work -- often up to their necks in water -- until they cleared the river sufficiently to allow steamers to reach Bowling Green at high water. When the locks and dams were reopened following the Civil War, a local private corporation gained a near-monopoly of the river trade. Public outcry against this private ownership caused the federal government to take control, and through the Corps of Engineers, to undertake extensive river improvements. After the Great Depression, when trade was almost at a standstill, additional federal funds were appropriated for flood-control dams in the upper river and modern locks in the lower river to harness the valley's industrial potential. These opened up coal barging and recreational facilities, which ensured the future economic well being of the Green River valley.

Chatsworth, a small village in the New Jersey Pinelands, was known as Shamong until 1901. The community traces its beginning to the early 1700s, when settlers mined and forged bog iron to make cannonballs for the American Revolution, and farming was the primary source of income. In the mid-1800s, Chatsworth was a popular stopping point for stagecoach travelers to the Jersey Shore. The arrival of the railroad removed the remoteness of the village and captured the attention of people throughout the country. Prince Mario Ruspoli de Poggio-Suasa, an attach of the Italian embassy in Washington, D.C., built an elegant villa at the lake. Soon after, the exquisite Chatsworth Country Club was built and counted among its membership a sitting vice president of the United States. It was during this period that Chatsworth played a dominant role in the development of the cranberry industry and began attracting hunters and others seeking recreational opportunities in the Pinelands. The cultivated blueberry industry also had its beginnings in Chatsworth in the 1930s.

Myra Stevenson, an Anglo Indian teacher and single mother to Thomas, faces her worst nightmare when she discovers Thomas’s father has visited him without her knowledge. As he belongs to the echelons of British society in India, she fears he will claim their son who looks European. Giles Cottrell, owner of a tea plantation and an officer in the Indian Army reserves, had no idea he fathered a son until his grandmother (Jessie) informed him of the fact in a letter after her death. He informs Myra that his grandmother left them each a letter. His letter sets out directives, one being that they must marry for Thomas to bear his name in accordance to the Legitimacy Act, 1926. Myra refuses to allow Giles to read her letter. Conflicts arise between the pair as a result, especially as Jessie left her property in Delhi to Myra. The couple marry and embark on a train journey to Darjeeling to await the decree that makes Thomas legally a Cottrell. However, their married life is fraught with issues of mistrust and outside interferences. Myra once again faces her past fears of ostracism. How she wins her husband’s love and stands tall amidst racial misconceptions and discrimination is the story she relates.

Wine and Cincinnati were once a perfect pairing, so much so that the "Queen City" nickname was inspired by Sparkling Catawba Wine, the delectable libation that sparked the Catawba Craze of the mid-1800s. Longworth's Golden Wedding Sparkling Catawba was the most celebrated, but Werk's Golden Eagle and Red Cross, Corneau's Cornucopia, Thompson's Hillside, Bogen's Diamond, Mottier's National Premium and Schumann's Queen Victoria also bolstered the city's reputation as the American Rhineland. These winemakers passed their knowledge on to Lake Erie, the New York Finger Lakes, Pennsylvania, Missouri and California. Today, that knowledge has returned home, as Henke, Skeleton Root, Meier and Vinoklet hope to make the city a wine haven once again. Food historian Dann Woellert leads a tour through Cincy's storied past and promising future with the grape and the vine.

The Da Vinci Code meets Get Shorty in this thrilling debut. “A very clever and intricately woven story of greed and the lust for power.” —Promoting Crime Fiction An LA screenwriter is killed shortly after completing his latest script, Fall Out, a thriller destined to be a blockbuster. But is there more to the script than meets the eye? Echoing past events, the screenplay is sent to a very specific group of people whose lives will be changed forever. All recipients are connected to a movie that had abruptly stopped shooting years before. Follow Producer Marcus Riley, who teams up with designer Melinda (Mako) de Turris and sets out on an increasingly dangerous quest to get Fall Out made, while they and the other recipients of the screenplay are pursued by an assassin from the past. With clues cleverly concealed in the screenplay, Marcus and Mako unravel a lethal puzzle that for some will bring death, others the truth and ends in a mysterious cave with a shocking revelation . . . “If you want a fast-paced stand out different thriller, I can’t recommend Fall Out enough. I loved it.” —Emma Forbes, broadcaster “Amazing . . . I agree with all the other reviews that have stated if you like Dan Brown or James Patterson, then this book is for you.” —Joyful Antidotes “And, action! Plenty of it and super nasty bad guys and stories so outrageously crazy they can only be true . . . Fall Out is inventive and, at times intentionally filmic . . . The fun doesn’t stop for 440 pages.” —Booksplainer

A remarkable new book providing unique insight into Tate's collection through the depiction of plants and flowers With their delightful colors, incredible natural beauty, and fascinating "otherness," it is no surprise that flowers and plants have long captivated artists. They have come to symbolize a gamut of complex human emotions, including hope, delight, love, compassion, gratitude, grief, and loss. The fragility of flowers is a poignant reminder of the fleeting nature of life. Their sensory appeal--to our sight, smell, touch and even, sometimes, taste--brings us into the present moment, and they can affect our well-being in surprisingly healing ways. Bloom is a compendium of 100 of the most beautiful floral works from Tate's collection. Designed to encourage slow, mindful looking, it will bring reflection, restoration, and joy.

History of Construction Cultures Volume 1 contains papers presented at the 7ICCH – Seventh International Congress on Construction History, held at the Lisbon School of Architecture, Portugal, from 12 to 16 July, 2021. The conference has been organized by the Lisbon School of Architecture (FAUL), NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Portuguese Society for Construction History Studies and the University of the Azores. The contributions cover the wide interdisciplinary spectrum of Construction History and consist on the most recent advances in theory and practical case studies analysis, following themes such as: - epistemological issues; - building actors; - building materials; - building machines, tools and equipment; - construction processes; - building services and techniques ; -structural theory and analysis ; - political, social and economic aspects; - knowledge transfer and cultural translation of construction cultures. Furthermore, papers presented at thematic sessions aim at covering important problematics, historical periods and different regions of the globe, opening new directions for Construction History research. We are what we build and how we build; thus, the study of Construction History is now more than ever at the centre of current debates as to the shape of a sustainable future for humankind. Therefore, History of Construction Cultures is a critical and indispensable work to expand our understanding of the ways in which everyday building activities have been perceived and experienced in different cultures, from ancient times to our century and all over the world.
