Improving Psychiatric Care for Older People: Barbara Robb’s Campaign 1965-1975 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Claire Hilton

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book tells the story of Barbara Robb and her pressure group, Aid for the Elderly in Government Institutions (AEGIS). In 1965, Barbara visited 73-year-old Amy Gibbs in a dilapidated and overcrowded National Health Service psychiatric hospital back-ward. She was so appalled by the low standards that she set out to make improvements. Barbara’s book Sans Everything: A case to answer was publicly discredited by a complacent and self-righteous Ministry of Health. However, inspired by her work, staff in other hospitals ‘whistle-blew’ about events they witnessed, which corroborated her allegations. Barbara influenced government policy, to improve psychiatric care and health service complaints procedures, and to establish a hospitals' inspectorate and ombudsman. The book will appeal to campaigners, health and social care staff and others working with older people, and those with an interest in policy development in England, the 1960s, women’s history and the history of psychiatry and nursing.

Proletarian Peasants: The Revolution of 1905 in Russia's Southwest

by Robert Edelman

In this book, conceived and written for the general reader as well as the specialist, Robert Edelman uses a case study of peasant behavior during a particular revolutionary situation to make an important contribution to one of the major debates in contemporary peasant studies. Edelman's subject is the peasantry of the right-bank Ukraine, and he uses local and regional archives seldom available to Western scholars to give a detailed picture of the ways in which the inhabitants of one of Russia’s most advanced agrarian regions expressed their discontent during the years 1905–1907. By the 1890s, the landlords of Russia’s Southwest had organized a highly successful capitalist form of agriculture, and Edelman demonstrates that their peasants responded to these dramatic economic changes by adopting many of the forms of political and social behavior generally associated with urban proletarians.

Strategy Six Pack 5 (Illustrated): A Treatise on Tactics, The English Civil War, Genghis Khan, The Boer War, Morgan's Raid and More

by Elbert Hubbard

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”― Sun Tzu, The Art of WarStrategy Six Pack 5 presents a smart sextet of tactical texts:A Treatise on Tactics by Francis J. LippittA Tale of the English Civil War by G. A. HentyGenghis Khan by Jacob AbbottThe Boer War by Arthur Conan DoyleMorgan's Raid by Basil W. Duke, Orlando B. Willcox & Thomas H. HinesGaribaldi by Elbert HubbardFrancis J. Lippitt’s A Treatise on Tactics is a detailed, sophisticated mid-Victorian survey delineating trends in military thinking as relates to the three branches of Infantry, Artillery and Cavalry. Morgan’s Raid by Basil W. Duke, Orlando B. Willcox & Thomas H. Hines – three participants of the famous Civil War skirmish – is a forgotten military classic and includes the raid, capture and escape of Confederate general John Hunt Morgan and his troops, known as Morgan’s Men. Evidently Sherlock Holmes’ creator Arthur Conan Doyle had a lot to say about the Boer War. By the end of hostilities in 1902, his book The Boer War (originally published as The War in South Africa, Its Cause and Conduct) had been published 16 times, with each edition revised by Doyle. The mystery maestro brings the same analytical skills displayed in his fiction to this definitive look at the 1899-1902 conflict. There is also G. A. Henty’s richly descriptive novel A Tale of the English Civil War, Garibaldi, a biography of the Italian general, and Genghis Khan by Jacob Abbott, a look at the life of the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire.Illustrations include:King Charles I of EnglandThe Battle of Marston Moor, 1644Oliver CromwellThe 1st Khagan of the Mongol EmpireGenghis Khan entering BeijingJohn Hunt MorganThomas H.

Revolutionary Acts: Amateur Theater and the Soviet State, 1917-1938

by Lynn Mally

During the Russian Revolution and Civil War, amateur theater groups sprang up in cities across the country. Workers, peasants, students, soldiers, and sailors provided entertainment ranging from improvisations to gymnastics and from propaganda sketches to the plays of Chekhov. In Revolutionary Acts, Lynn Mally reconstructs the history of the amateur stage in Soviet Russia from 1917 to the height of the Stalinist purges. Her book illustrates in fascinating detail how Soviet culture was transformed during the new regime's first two decades in power.Of all the arts, theater had a special appeal for mass audiences in Russia, and with the coming of the revolution it took on an important role in the dissemination of the new socialist culture. Mally's analysis of amateur theater as a space where performers, their audiences, and the political authorities came into contact enables her to explore whether this culture emerged spontaneously "from below" or was imposed by the revolutionary elite. She shows that by the late 1920s, Soviet leaders had come to distrust the initiatives of the lower classes, and the amateur theaters fell increasingly under the guidance of artistic professionals. Within a few years, state agencies intervened to homogenize repertoire and performance style, and with the institutionalization of Socialist Realist principles, only those works in a unified Soviet canon were presented.

Five Letters of Cortes to the Emperor: 1519-1526

by Hernando Cortes

“In the letters of Cortés we have a clear picture of Mexico through the simple eyes of the conqueror who admires his enemies. . . . He could write a masterly report. The second and the third letters are the clearest piece of narrative that we can ask for. We see the advance into the country, the conscientious determination to penetrate by peace, diplomacy or the sword to Montezuma’s capital, leading up to the final dramatic meeting with Montezuma himself.”―New StatesmanThese five letters by the Spanish conqueror, Hernando Cortés, were written to the Emperor Charles V of Spain between 1519 and 1526. They describe the earliest discoveries of the mainland, the perilous trek into hostile country, the capture of the Aztec capital, the extension of Cortés’ power throughout Mexico, the expedition to Honduras, and the organization and ordering of the Spanish empire in the new world.

The Governor of England

by Marjorie Bowen

Oliver Cromwell was first and foremost an English soldier.

But he was also a statesman of outstanding gifts and a forceful character, becoming Lord Protector of the Republican Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1653 to 1658.

One of the leading generals on the parliamentary side in the English Civil War against King Charles I, he was indispensable in the campaign to the overthrow of the Stuart monarchy.

In his position as Lord Protector, he raised his country’s status back to being one of leading European power, something it had not experienced since the death of Queen Elizabeth I.

Cromwell was one of the most remarkable rulers in European history; he believed deeply in the value of religious toleration.

At the same time his victories at home and abroad helped to enlarge and sustain a Puritan attitude of mind, both in Great Britain and in North America which has continued to influence political and social life right up until the present day.

In this historical novel the whole story of Cromwell’s dealings with Parliament and the King is played out before you in thrilling excitement and vivid action.

'The Governor of England' is a thrilling historical saga that is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell.

'Takes you right to the heart of one the greatest stories in English history'. - Robert Foster, best-selling author of 'The Lunar Code'.

Born in 1885, Marjorie Bowen (pseudonym of Margaret Gabrielle Vere Campbell Long) was one of Britain’s most prolific authors of the twentieth century. Writing was more than just a hobby: her works were the primary source of financial support for her family. Between 1906 and her death in 1952, Bowen wrote over 150 books, garnering much acclaim for her popular histories and historical and gothic romances. Alongside masterful descriptions and concise, efficient prose, she deftly rendered larger-than-life subjects in the minds of her readers. To this day, aficionados of the genres covet Bowen’s work.
