Irish History from Contemporary Sources (1509-1610) by Constantia Maxwell (£68.00)Publisher: George Allen & Unwin — 1923Binding: Hardback First Edition. Condition: Good. Gently faded at the spine, darkened at the extremities. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Endpapers browned. Text bright and tight.Description: From the author’s introduction: “This book is intended primarily for students and teachers of Irish History, to whom it is hoped the extracts given will be of service, whatever generalisations they may base upon them. Most of the selections have been made to illustrate English rule, and are largely, though not by any means entirely, drawn from English sources and official State Papers. It should be borne in mind that almost all writers of the period were animated by a certain amount of religious and political bias.”Notes: Size: 9" x 5¾". 400 pages.

An Ageing Population: A Reader and Sourcebook by Edited by Vida Carver & Penny Liddiard (£56.50)Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton — 1978Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0340233737]Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “At the beginning of this century, approximately seven per cent of the population was aged sixty or more. Today, the proportion is twenty per cent and is likely to rise still further, bringing with it an increased demand for the provision of services for the elderly, and placing new emphasis on the problems — personal, social, medical, economic — associated with old age. An Ageing Population examines these problems and the ways in which they affect the elderly individual, his family, the caring professional and the community as a whole. The papers in this book have been drawn from a variety of sources to provide a broad perspective on the needs and circumstances of the elderly. Thus extracts from the literature of sociology, psychology, medicine, social work and nursing appear side by side with personal accounts of ageing, disability and the activities of voluntary workers. Together, they reinforce the view that the problems and challenges associated with longevity require a community response matched with inter-professional understanding and cooperation. An Ageing Population, a set book for the Open University post-experience course of the same title (P252), will be invaluable to all those professionally responsible for the care of the elderly, as well as the concerned general reader.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 434 pages.

Compulsory Mass Medication: A Factual Guide to the Fluoridation Issue Which Touches the Personal Health and Well-Being of Every Man, Woman and Child by P. [Patrick] Clavell Blount (£48.00)Publisher: The Clair Press — 1964Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with creasing to both the panels and sunning to the spine. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the front pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Compulsory Mass Medication shows that the fluoridation of the public water supplies is not a medical/dental issue and never has been despite the fact that millions of sincere and honest people believe that it is, just as millions of people once believed that the world was flat, but that did not make it so. Compulsory Mass Medication shows that the issue is a political/ethical one and that no person or group has the right to promote changes in the bodies of others without their consent. That is the issue and it has nothing whatever to do with the choice of medicines.

Compulsory Mass Medicationmaintains that once fluoridation has been accepted by the nation, we shall have given the State the right to interfere with the functioning and development of people’s bodies without the consent of the owner. Fluoridation is the first real attempt to make people surrender their existing right to think for themselves and to follow the dictates of conscience. If this attempt succeeds there is no knowing where it will end.

The author criticises in detail the British Ministry of Health booklet advocating fluoridation and the false ethics behind it. There are also important chapters giving verbatim extracts from Parliament and Congress and the views of leading medical and religious authorities.”

with the Carriers in Korea: The Fleet Air Arm Story 1950-1953 by John R. P. Lansdown (£44.00)Publisher: Crécy Publishing — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0947554645]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper front flap slightly creased otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Although within living memory of those who took part, and their families, the Korean war has been largely neglected in publishing. There have been only a small number of books available and these have tended to detail the actions of the British, Commonwealth and US Armies. The fact that the British and Commonwealth navies, and particularly the Fleet Air Arm, were heavily involved has been largely overlooked.

This imbalance has at last been redressed by an author who, as a Lt. Commander, served with the Fleet Air Arm (FAA) in Korea on board the aircraft carrier HMS Glory. In this book, John Lansdown has produced the definitive record of this era, including a historical perspective of the period leading up to the conflict and a full and detailed history of sea and air operations in South East Asia from 1950-1953. All Royal Navy and United States Navy ships involved in the conflict are mentioned, and all the carriers which saw action are detailed in the text. This vital work of reference is enlivened by a stunning photographic content and extracts from the Squadron Diaries and Line Books, covering every day that aircraft flew into battle. A unique and absorbing book.”

U.S. Destroyer: An Illustrated Design History by Norman Friedman (£42.00)Publisher: London, Melbourne: Arms & Armour Press — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0853685215]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily bruised at the head, tail and corners of the boards with damaged to the dust wrapper which has a tape repair to the bottom corner of the upper panel. Front hinge starting. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise and a good reference copy of an uncommon title. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “For almost a century, the destroyer has been the image of sleek, aggressive power. This hook explains how the U. S. Navy developed its destroyers. It also describes the naval and civilian forces that determined the design and operation of these ships. In the past two decades, U. S. destroyer design, now typified by the Spruance and Perry classes, has become increasingly controversial: for example, nuclear vs. conventional power, endurance vs. speed. Norman Friedman, a highly regarded authority on U. S. warships, discusses the reasoning behind the designs of these ships — this reasoning, he believes, will continue to dominate U. S. warship development for the remainder of this century.

From their torpedo-boat forebears onward, all destroyer classes are illustrated and described in detail. Many designs that were never carried to construction are also discussed because of their significance in the development of the ships actually built. These designs range from the large “destroyer leader” of 1919, through the 40-knot Seahawk of the sixties, to those that preceded the current Spruance and Ticonderoga.

The author also describes the destroyer escorts (DE, now frigates, FF), the large post-war frigates (DL/DLG, now redesignated cruisers), and the Perry-class FFGs. They are all interrelated, all part of the destroyer story.

An entire chapter is devoted to destroyer combat experience in World War II, as this had a major influence on ship design and development. Extracts from battle reports made at that time are included. Separate chapters describe destroyer weapon systems for antiaircraft and antisubmarine warfare as they have evolved since the beginnings of the destroyer force.

Friedman’s detailed descriptions and illustrations of ships and of their modifications in service should be of great interest to naval historians, model-builders, and to all ship lovers. Most classes are illustrated by detailed profiles drawn by renowned draftsman Arthur D. Baker III, and in many cases inboard profiles showing the internal arrangements of the ships are included. Detailed photographs of World War II ships alter relit should be invaluable to ship model-makers. As a monument to the men of the destroyer force and to their ships, the book is unsurpassable.

This is the only history of U. S. Destroyer development based entirely on the internal, formerly classified papers of the U. S. Navy. For all who would like to understand the origins of the present Navy, and for all who hope to shape the Navy of the future, U. S. Destroyers is vital reading.”

The Blitz Then and Now Volume 1: September 3, 1939 to September 6, 1940 by Edited By Winston G. Ramsey (£40.00)Publisher: London: Battle of Britain Prints International — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0900913452]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Diagrams; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Volume 1 of a trilogy spanning the air war on Britain, The Blitz Then and Now, this book covers the first year, the period from phoney war to total war: September 3, 1939 to September 6, 1940. Beginning with endless air raid warnings and a sense of unreality, it was a phase which was to culminate in Hitler threatening to raze Britain’s cities to the ground.

As a direct source of the day-to-day effects of Luftwaffe operations over Britain at the time, the book utilises extracts from the 24-hour log compiled by the Ministry of Home Security, and this provides a contemporary diary of events as they affected the Home Front. These entries ideally form the setting for a detailed record of the losses sustained by the Luftwaffe over Britain and within sight of land: a barometer of the air war, showing clearly the changing climate of hostilities. Until the summer of 1940 these were mainly reconnaissance flights and attacks on shipping, which gathered pace after Dunkirk as the air attack on Britain and the Royal Air Force escalated through its several stages as a prelude to invasion. Every German crash on land is listed with its crew, and footnotes are included on all those which are known to have been investigated or excavated since the end of the war, together with photographs of some of the more interesting discoveries.

Features and special articles by historians and eyewitnesses intersperse the daily happenings, illustrating life at the time on both the civilian and service fronts, and contrasting descriptions by German airmen give us an insight into just what it was like to be on the other side.

Even now, within a single generation, it seems another world… a part of history… yet the link with the present day is depicted by the comparison ‘then and now’ photographs which are a central feature of all After the Battle publications.

For its unique photographic coverage, and its contribution to the literature of the period, this book is likely to serve as an incomparable record in the years to come.”

William Morris by Himself: Designs and Writings by Edited by Gillian Naylor (£21.00)Publisher: Boston, New York, London: Little, Brown & Company — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0316855073]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this edition. [First: MacDonald & Co, 1988] Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Through his own work and in his own words, the book traces the fascinating progress of William Morris, pre-Raphaelite poet and architectural student into designer, writer and pioneer socialist. His youthful enthusiasm for the Middle Ages and Gothic architecture fired him with the conviction that he must dedicate his life to Art .

Later letters written to friends explain how in the industrialised nineteenth century Morris become preoccupied with the loss of traditional skills and pride in work and during the last ten years of his life he became increasingly involved in political agitation, and his stories, poems and lectures all reflect his commitment to the socialist cause and his ideals for art and society.

Other extracts from his letters and poems reveal more intimate aspects of Morris’s life and personality, reflecting the despair and isolation he felt over the breakdown of his marriage and his reliance on the friends who helped him through his personal crisis. William Morris by Himself is a tribute to an exceptional man, whose work and reputation have survived for more than a century.”

A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a nick to the top corner of the upper panel which has a 4" scuff across the front. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Told in the words of those who fought the war and those who reported on its happenings, THE VIETNAM WAR DIARY provides a startling, inside look at the war that left a scar on the American soul.

The longest conflict in American history, the Vietnam War arouses more contradictory feelings than almost any other experience — a complicated range of emotions that are still strongly felt today. To the people of Southeast Asia, it is a continuing tragedy, for their country has endured years of foreign occupation, and suffered irreparable damage. To many Americans, it is comfortably remote, a source for Hollywood films, or for concerned television documentaries highlighting the problems of the unsettled veteran. But to the millions of ex-servicemen who served in Southeast Asia, it remains one of the most important and unforgettable experiences of their lives.

THE VIETNAM WAR DIARY takes the form of a month-by-month diary of the US forces’ war in Southeast Asia. Hundreds of news stories, personal accounts and extracts from official reports are accompanied by photos that cover the range of the serviceman’s experience in Vietnam.”

Stella Tillyard's completely new text (the series Aristocrats is based on her highly acclaimed book of the same name), breathes intelligence and accessibility. Divided into themed chapters: Beginnings and Marriages; Town Life; Country Life; Travel and Endings, Aristocrats is gorgeously illustrated with informatively captioned paintings, photos of artefacts and stills from the television series. Helpfully, the book kicks off with a Dramatis Personae section, which explains who everyone is, tells us how they relate to each other, what they were like and fits them snugly into their context like the elegant, idiosyncratic pieces of a lavish three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Cobwebs to Catch Flies: Illustrated Books For the Nursery and Schoolroom, 1700-1900 by Joyce Irene Whalley (£10.50)Publisher: London: Elek Books — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0236154648]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with slight fraying to the top edge. Price Clipped. Top edge of the text block tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates; Black & White Plates;

From the cover: “Before education was universally available, it was thought proper for young children to be taught at home, in the nursery or schoolroom. From the early years of the 18th century, more and more picture books for this purpose were published on both sides of the Atlantic, often crossing the ocean to appear with little or no revision in an English or American edition. They were designed to teach a child, outside the school classroom, not only reading, writing and arithmetic but the correct interpretation of the scriptures, of history, the natural world and life in other lands.

Most texts were written with a high moral and didactic purpose, but to us the books, adorned with charming illustrations to match the verses and instructions underneath, provide a fascinating glimpse of the changing fashions and attitudes of society and the part children were expected to play in it. The pictures ranged from simple anonymous wood cuts and engravings, often hand-coloured, to signed work by such outstanding book illustrators as Thomas Bewick, George Cruikshank and, later, Walter Crane and Kate Greenaway. Over 150 of these illustrations are reproduced, . Often with extracts from the books themselves, in this showcase of educational children’s literature, here arranged according to subject — the alphabet, grammar, geography and so on. Many of the titles alone make enchanting reading: Marmaduke Multiples Merry Method of Making Minor Mathematicians; Punctuation Personified by Mr Stops; and the original Cobwebs to Catch Flies by Lady Fenn. Others, like Alice in Wonderland and Struwwelpeter, take their place as internationally recognized classics. An extensive bibliography and indexes of publishers and titles complete this revealing study, which is a treasure trove for the social and educational historian and a delightful recreation of a past world of childhood.”

D-Day: Piercing the Atlantic Wall by Robert J. Kershaw (£10.50)Publisher: Ian Allan — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711021767]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “D-Day is a brilliant collection of German and Allied eyewitness accounts of what it was really like to parachute by night into Normandy, to defend the beaches from within the German bunker, to splash fearfully ashore under machine-gun and artillery fire, to be a victim of the relentless Allied air attacks or to struggle from a burning tank brewed-up by the deadly 88s.

Many books have been written about the Normandy landings, but Robert J Kershaw brings a new perspective by drawing heavily on German and Allied sources little used in the standard accounts. The actual landings and the subsequent few days of battle to consolidate them often resolved themselves into a multitude of desperate small-scale struggles — for the next few yards of beach, to cross the next field, or to reach the next hedgerow. By looking at the battles at precisely this level, Robert Kershaw is able to develop new insights into the failures and successes of both sides, and to show why the battle for Normandy developed into the long and bitter struggle that has become so well known.

He features extracts from the German telephone log for Omaha Beach, bringing the landings to life. He analyses the failure by both sides appropriately to balance tank and infantry forces in the difficult Normandy terrain, and examines why the Allies, with local superiority in the early days, were unable to break out earlier, or form a larger bridgehead.

He shows how the D-Day struggle was not concluded in a single ‘longest’ day but was in fact a 10-day battle for the Normandy foreshore to decide whether the Allied lodgement would hold, or the Germans push the invaders into the sea.”

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Allergies have become something of an obsession in the 1990s: press reports talk of ‘an allergy to life’; and scientists tell that the extraordinary increase in allergy cases over the last century can be put down to environmental pollution as a result of the increasing industrialization of society. This book shows allergy sufferers that there are other ways to reduce the risk of provoking an allergic response and of treating one if it occurs. First, it cuts through the jargon, using clear no-nonsense language to explain what allergies are and what causes them, before discussing the pros and cons of conventional medical treatment. Then it discusses the various types of allergy, from food allergies to allergic skin conditions, with cross-references to the various types of natural treatment that follow. Next the book shows how natural remedies — from herbal medicines, elimination diets and homeopathy to stress-management techniques — can help by both alleviating the symptoms of an allergic response and prevent one from occurring.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7".

Lord's & Commons: Cricket in Novels and Stories by John Bright-Holmes (£9.50)Publisher: André Deutsch [Andre Deutsch] — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0233982841]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper snagged at the head of the spine. Description: From the cover: “Cricket is unique among sports in that it has inspired a whole range of literature and, above all, has been more fully described in fiction than any other game.

Those who maintain that cricket is a metaphor not only for life in England but life anywhere, will find countless episodes in novels and stories to bear out their thesis. But most readers do not have the time to seek out the cricket episodes in writing that has dealt with the game more or less since cricket became a national pastime.

Therefore John Bright-Holmes’s selection is a must for the cricket lover. He has ingeniously divided the subject into three sections. ‘Lord’s and other first-class occasions’ deals with the first-class game, concentrating on Test and County cricket, and has a dramatic opening with stories by Jeffrey Archer and lan Peebles, and classic extracts from Ted Dexter and Clifford Makins, the Frys, and George Macdonald Fraser.

‘Willingly to school’ has the inevitably heroic games of childhood and adolescence, perhaps the most moving of them all, ranging from Talbot Baines Reed and P. G. Wodehouse to E. W. Hornung, the mordant wit of Brian Glanville and the touching innocence of R. K. Narayan’s rural Indian “M. C. C.”

‘The village green and other commons’ deals with the very roots of the game and includes J. L. Carr, the Australian Dal Stivens, the completely un-omittable A. G. Macdonell and Hugh de Selincourt, and the work of such novelists as L. P. Hartley, George Meredith and Charles Dickens.

The book concludes with Gerald Brodribb’s invaluable checklist of cricket in fiction so that Lord’s and commons combines the value of a reference book with superb reading matter for the summer game (particularly when it’s raining) and the winter days and nights when one dreams of watching and playing but has to take up a good book instead.

John Bright-Holmes has previously compiled The Joy of Cricket, described by the Listener as ‘a complete pleasure1 and by the Mail on Sunday as ‘a gem of a book as leisurely and full of drama as a five-day Test’.”

Memories of the Ford Administration: A Novel by John Updike (£9.50)Publisher: Hamish Hamilton — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0241133866]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is a little lightly scuffed in places. Top edge of the text block spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First British Edition. [First Published: 1992, U.S.A.] From the cover: “John Updike’s superb new novel mirrors two American eras — the most sexually liberated time in recent history (the Ford years) and the critical period leading up to the Civil War (the Buchanan era).

Under the guise of contributing to a symposium on the Gerald Ford Administration, Alfred Clayton, a history instructor at Wayward College, New Hampshire, reviews his life as it was in those years. Amid the chaos of his current domestic desolation it gives him the opportunity to review the halcyon days of his youth. He describes his attempt to leave his wife, ‘the Queen of Disorder’, for his mistress, ‘the Perfect Wife’, as well as some of the stray sexual contacts almost obligatory in the promiscuous seventies. He also provides extracts from his biography of President Buchanan. This magnum opus, a somewhat perverse piece of historical research resurrecting America’s only bachelor President, has never been completed, let alone published.

As Clayton’s personal memoirs reveal a man incapable of fidelity even to his mistress, the tantalizing question emerges — what has drawn him to Buchanan with such devotion? What does Clayton have in common with this quaint but unremarkable President? As the two stories interweave, the nature of fact itself is called into question.”

[ISBN: 0718148428]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Dust wrapper a little ruffled at the edges.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Caron Keating was forty-one when she died, leaving behind two young sons, Charlie and Gabriel. A few weeks after Gabriel was born — and her own father died — Caron found a lump in her breast. Gloria knew, at that moment, that all their lives would change for ever. The next seven years of Caron’s life, and her family’s, became a quest for recovery that ultimately took them across the world. They became experts in dealing with the illness and its treatment, both conventional and alternative. All the while Caron was living in the public eye and keeping her own, devastating secret. The loss of a loved one is the most terrible thing to contemplate. But all of us will have to face it at some point in our lives. Although Caron lost her battle with cancer, this isn’t a sad book. Told by Gloria, with extracts from Caron’s own diaries, it’s an inspirational and honest account of how Caron, Gloria and the whole family faced and coped with illness; it’s a celebration of an unbreakable mother daughter relationship and how that relationship withstood the strain of Caron’s illness. And above all it’s a book to commemorate a spirited, magical woman. A woman who loved life and fought to hold on to it.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

A copy for reading rather than admiring, generally shabby but text complete and acceptable. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the covers and spine. Upper wrapper slighty curled, both wrappers have light creasing. Light reading creases to the somewhat faded spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Physicians direct the course of medical treatment, but it is the nurses who are in constant contact with the patient and whose care and professional skill most directly affect the course of recovery. Now there is a new dimension to nursing, profoundly influencing not only the patient’s fight with illness but his or her lifetime health — nutrition.

Whatever the medication or treatment, optimum nutrition will enhance it, strengthening the immune system to resist disease and fortifying the body against the stress of surgery or injury, and sustaining the patient through the debilitating experience of illness. An outstanding nutritional educator and an experienced nurse and teacher present in this book the essentials of nutrition and how it applies to nursing patients — including a clear-sighted examination of the “political” and professional considerations necessary in applying this knowledge in settings where it is new.

Deeply informed and informative, Nutrition in Nursing is a landmark book and a means of enlarging the scope of the most intimately involved of the health professions.”

Ex-library with the first blank removed and a stamp to the reverse of the title page. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Contains a glossary of terms. From the cover: “The book provides students of the earliest stage of our literature with a selection of texts for a complete introductory course. All the principal poems and prose works in this literature are represented, including more generous extracts from Beowulf than are common in anthologies of this type. By omitting texts of primarily philological and historical interest it has been possible to include enough literary texts to satisfy all but the advanced student, who will follow this volume with the specialised editions available. A departure from the traditional design of Old English anthologies is the provision of full critical and annotative apparatus. In the past it has been necessary for students to go beyond their Readers, to specialised editions or to learned articles, in order to discover even the most basic information about the extracts or their content. Here each text is accompanied by an introduction which gives brief details of (where known) date, authorship, manuscript situation, character and critical interest. Line-by-line explanatory notes are also provided, and a bibliography of books and articles for further study. The glossary aims to be more explicit about form and meaning, and easier to use than those of earlier selections..”Notes: Size: 9" x 5¾". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. [IX] 234 pages.

He was a man who enjoyed life hugely and shared that enjoyment with millions. Summers will never be the same’.

From the introduction: “The Guinness Chronicle of the 20th Century in Quotations is essentially a narrative of events as they unfold, told in the context of the words of the people who were involved in them. While the quotations themselves form the framework of the hook, it is first and foremost a chronicle, and not just another dictionary of quotations with unusually long footnotes; it is this that makes it unique, usefully entertaining and informative. The inclusion of songs, slogans, catchphrases, lines from films and plays, extracts from radio and television shows, and quotations from novels and poems will help to evoke and enhance the flavour of the times.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 256 pages.

A Galaxy Not So Far Away: Writers and Artists on Twenty-Five Years of “Star Wars” by Edited and Introduced by Glenn Kenny (£6.50)Publisher: Allison & Busby — 2003Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0749006609]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Leans heavily otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “In 1977, Star Wars burst onto our screens and quickly became the cultural phenomenon for an entire generation.Today, as audiences tremble in anticipation for each new episode in the saga, Star Wars is still a major cinematic event. The children who watched in 1977 have today grown up to become writers, film-makers and journalists and in this dazzling collection of original essays they explore the massive impact that George Lucas’s cinematic space opera has had on the world.

Edited by Glenn Kenny, a senior editor and critic a Premiere magazine, this is the first collection of essays of its kind on the Star Wars films. Jonathan Lethem writes of the summer he saw Star Wars twenty-one times as his mother lay dying of cancer. New York Timesfilm critic Elvis Mitchell meditates upon the mysterious figure of Lando Calrissian, and Todd Hanson, head writer of The Onion, parades his homemade Jedi costume and struggles to come to terms with Jar Jar Binks. The likes of director Kevin Smith and critic Joe Queenan offer their unique, personal experience and affinity with Star Wars; a chance to anatomise, criticise, celebrate, and sometimes simply riff on the prismatic after-effects of an unparalleled international phenomenon.

A classic assemblage of pop writing at its best on a classic series of popular movies at their very best, A Galaxy Not So Far Away is a book for everyone who loves the Star Wars films and seeks to understand just what it is about these films that has so entranced generations of filmgoers.”
