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.

Why and how America’s defense strategy must change in light of China’s power and ambition—A Wall Street Journal best book of 2021 “This is a realist’s book, laser-focused on China’s bid for mastery in Asia as the 21st century’s most important threat.”—Ross Douthat, New York Times “Colby’s well-crafted and insightful Strategy of Denial provides a superb and, one suspects, essential departure point for an urgent and much-needed debate over U.S. defense strategy.”—Andrew F. Krepinevich, Jr., Foreign Affairs Elbridge A. Colby was the lead architect of the 2018 National Defense Strategy, the most significant revision of U.S. defense strategy in a generation. Here he lays out how America's defense must change to address China's growing power and ambition. Based firmly in the realist tradition but deeply engaged in current policy, this book offers a clear framework for what America's goals in confronting China must be, how its military strategy must change, and how it must prioritize these goals over its lesser interests. The most informed and in-depth reappraisal of America's defense strategy in decades, this book outlines a rigorous but practical approach, showing how the United States can prepare to win a war with China that we cannot afford to lose--precisely in order to deter that war from happening.
