Algeria: The Realities by Germaine Tillion (£17.00)Publisher: Eye & Spottiswoode — 1958Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dustwrapper. Unlaminated dustwrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned. Tanning to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the flap: “This book does not discuss the Algerian problem in terms of the political and military manoeuvrings which have recently embittered and obscured it. It goes far deeper. It considers Algeria as a single but striking example of what happens to a primitive culture when it is brought into contact with a modern industrialised economy. This book is important not only as a brief but cogent treatment of the real problems of Algeria. It has applications to many other under-developed countries, including those in the British Commonwealth. Germaine Tillion is qualified to write it by a long study of the problem and by an intimate knowledge ofAlgeria and her peoples.”Notes: Size: 8" x 5½".

The Khrushchev Pattern by Frank Gibney (£13.00)Publisher: Prentice-Hall International — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with some very small nicks. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “DURING THE HALF DECADE between 1955 and 1960, men watched with dreadful fascination the uncoiling of the Khrushchev Pattern, one of the most startling switches in the history of international politics, and one of the cleverest. The leader of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, used his power to swing his country and the entire Communist movement along a path of “competitive coexistence” that seemed to challenge not only the tactics of Stalin’s past rule but the very premises of the Communist system. Frank Gibney shows how successfully this new tactic operated with the world’s Communist parties and their sympathizers—in the widest variety of circumstances. In some areas it posed great problems for Khrushchev, because its surface friendliness and emphasis on a Popular Front approach threatened the historic unity of Communist discipline. At moments, as in the Hungarian revolt of 1956, the entire approach had to be sacrificed to the ruthless needs of Soviet power politics. But by and large Khrushchev’s “soft sell” version of Communism proved a far more formidable menace to the Free World than Stalin’s rigid line. Although the emphasis in his policy became openly aggressive after the U-2 incident and Khrushchev’s Summit breakup in the spring of 1960, the gains made by the Khrushchev Pattern were substantial. In a world where so many of the new, uncommitted nations appeared so ready to play off East against West, the superficially reasonable Khrushchev Pattern was surely as terrible a threat as Stalin’s more obvious aggression.”Notes: Jacket designed by Robert Jonas.

Wartime Courage: Stories of Extraordinary Courage by Ordinary People in World War Two by Gordon Brown (£9.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747596077]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “In these eleven stories of courage in the Second World War, Prime Minister Gordon Brown pays tribute to the heroism of that great generation of British men and women who took up arms against tyranny and overcame it. Some are accounts of decisive action taken in the searing heat of battle: early in the war Lieutenant Richard Stannard, RNR, showed steely calm and ingenuity during the retreat from Norway in 1940, winning a VC; while on D-Day, Company Sergeant Major Hollis of the Green Howards won his by storming a pillbox alone, paving the way for a crucial advance to higher ground. Other stories tell of great danger faced again and again: Graham Hayes and Geoffrey Appleyard of the Small Scale Raiding Force (forerunner of the SBS) carried out daring and innovative actions over many months off Africa and along the Normandy coast; while John Bridge, a physics teacher turned mine- and bomb-disposal officer, repeatedly practised his nerve-racking skills for six years, always aware that there were no second chances if things went wrong. Behind enemy lines the sangfroid and sheer endurance of clandestine operatives like Major Hugh Seagrim in occupied Burma and Violette Szabo in occupied France showed a daunting, almost mysterious form of courage; and on the home front two railwaymen risked their lives to save a small country town from devastation when their ammunition train caught fire.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Africa Uncorked: Travels in Extreme Wine Territory by John & Erica Platter (£7.50)Publisher: London: Kyle Cathie — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1856264408]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Top edge of the text block lightly marked. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Africa Uncorked is a wonderful collection of colourful stories and adventures chronicling John and Erica Platter’s travels along some very unusual wine routes. Sniffing, spitting and swallowing their way through Africa, using vineyards as their beacons, they’ve bypassed the usual clichés and carved out a new trans-continental road.

Their safari took them off the beaten track to 13 very different wine-growing countries: from Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia on the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean islands of Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion: back onto the East African mainland to Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania; through Zimbabwe and South Africa; and west to Namibia. They made astonishing wine discoveries, sampled amazing food, met extraordinary characters, visited fabulous historical sites, ventured into areas which have been no-go zones for foreigners for decades.

Africa Uncorked is not just another wine book. It’s tougher, more exotic stuff than the usual gentle ramble through the usual vineyards investigating the usual suspects. The wines of Africa are rooted in rugged landscapes, extreme climates and tumultuous histories. They reflect the past and future, the charms and perils of their countries. This is the backdrop to the Platters’ blend of personal travel diary and weird and wonderful wine notes, and it’s splashed with the African flavours they encountered en route. The birds, beasts and beaches; the art, architecture and music; the plants, people and politics. Altogether, this has to be the most original wine publication in years.”
