The Rise and Fall of Imperial Japan, 1894-1945 by Edited by S. L. Mayer (£16.00)Publisher: Bison Books — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0861241428]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, short closed and tape-reinforced to the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. [First: 1984 thus, previously published as ‘The Japanese War Machine’ in 1976] Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In 1868, Japan emerged from feudalism and civil conflict as a comparatively undeveloped industrial state in an age of European imperialism in East Asia. Within a generation, Japan had risen to the ranks of the foremost industrial and military powers in the Western Pacific. A generation later, Japan had become the paramount power in East Asia, and her naval and air forces spread Japanese power across the Pacific. The formidable weapon built in the name of the Emperor swept across China and Manchuria; her air forces pummelled Pearl Harbor and Darwin; her armies marched to Singapore and the gates of India. Her navies seized some Aleutian islands and strafed the California coast. By 1942 the world had come to know the power of the most devastating force in the Pacific — the Japanese War Machine.

The force and power of the Japanese War Machine is told here by some of the world’s leading experts in guns, tanks, planes, and ships of World War II. The drama of Japan’s seizure of Manchuria, the take-over of the State by the Army, the invasion of China, the simultaneous attack on Malaya, Hawaii, the Philippines and the oil-rich Dutch East Indies is told in all the horror and shock the Japanese invader placed before Western eyes. The fall of Singapore and Hong Kong, the conquest of Burma and Indo-China took place within a hundred days. The flag of the Rising Sun ruled a maritime empire from the Russian border to the gates of Australia, from Burma to Midway.

But the strength of the Japanese War Machine depended on Japanese industrial power, which in the end, was no match for the United States and its Allies. The Japanese soldier, infused with the warrior code of Bushido fought hard and long in New Guinea’s jungles; as the struggle was brought closer to Japan’s home islands, the Japanese soldier fought on tenaciously in the Philippines and on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The air forces began suicide missions, thekamikaze, which drove into Allied aircraft, heroically and fanatically.. .but all too little, too late. The nuclear holocaust, which ended World War II, left a ruined Japan and a wrecked Japanese War Machine.

THE RISE AND FALL OF IMPERIAL JAPAN is the tragic and noble history of a gallant people led into a misguided war. The millions who suffered in Asia and the Pacific in the wake of the Japanese War Machine bear silent tribute to its folly.”

[ISBN: 0297846442]Condition: Near Fine — in Near Fine Dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Following the great success of the best-selling Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Max Arthur has found and interviewed the last twenty-one British veterans of the conflict. The oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

This book brings together for the first time in one volume a thorough history of the Amish people. From their beginnings in Europe through their settlement in North America, the Amish have struggled to maintain their beliefs and traditions in often hostile settings. Atlantic crossings, westward migration, military conscription and compulsory school laws were just a few of the many challenges to the Amish church through the years. Caught in the currents and conflicts of national life, the Amish have remained a distinct people in America’s melting pot. Authoritative, thorough and interestingly written, A History of the Amish presents the deep and rich heritage of the Amish people. Includes a substantial bibliography for further reading and study.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 5½". 318 pages.

Elizabeth Taylor: The Obsessions, Passions and Courage of a Hollywood Legend by Ellis Amburn (£9.50)Publisher: Robson — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 186105369X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Frequently the target of scandalous tabloid headlines, Elizabeth Taylor’s love affairs and failed marriages have captured the attention of the world’s press for almost half a century. Just when we thought we knew everything about this screen siren, Ellis Amburn blows the lid off some of Hollywood’s best kept secrets. This compelling new biography poignantly recounts the successful removal of a golf-ball-sized brain tumour; her courageous recovery after breaking her back twice within two years; the exciting launch of her fragrance line, which became an instant success; and her loving relationship with Rod Steiger, who nurtured her back to health after a nervous breakdown. Amburn also reveals Taylor’s tragic and heartbreaking affection for Montgomery Clift and James Dean and explores Taylor’s disastrous marriage to the abusive and philandering Nicky Hilton, who abandoned Liz on their honeymoon to be with another woman. And then there is the infamous and cunning Eddie Fisher, who forced Liz to appear at his Las Vegas shows in order to bring in capacity crowds, as well as accounts of Richard Burton’s homosexual activities and his exploitation of Taylor.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Don't Look at the Camera by Harry Watt (£7.50)Publisher: London: Paul Elek — 1974Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0236177176]Condition: Poor. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the covers and spine. Light reading creases to the spine. Leans. Description: Uncorrected book proof. Contains: Black & white photographs;

From the cover: “‘Writers on British documentary make it sound like one of the more solemn research foundations,’ writes Harry Watt. ‘No one ever seems to have recorded that we were just a bunch of enthusiastic kids, accepting the basic theme of the dignity of man from our brilliant but erratic boss, learning our job by trial and error, bubbling with ideas but making thousands of mistakes. No one has ever suggested we were happy, that we laughed. And we had a million laughs’.

The bunch of enthusiastic kids included famous names of the film world like Humphrey Jennings and Basil Wright, as well as W. H. Auden, Benjamin Britten, William Coldstream and John Betjeman; the brilliant but erratic boss was John Grierson, father of the British documentary movement, who went on to found the National Film Board of Canada; and the ideas, the mistakes and the laughs are all hilariously recorded here by Harry Watt, who stumbled almost by accident into a fellow Scot’s office in Oxford Street in 1931 and went on to be one of the most important of all realist film directors.

After some basic grounding with the Empire Marketing Board Film Unit he had the luck to go to Ireland to work with Robert Flaherty, already famous for his film accounts of life among the Eskimos and Samoans, on Man of Aran. Documentary was then an assemblage of visuals tied together with a commentary and music. Watt felt immediately that there was scope for a more realistic and yet dramatised approach. His first film Night Mail was a masterpiece of exact detail, including brilliant sound, using the postmen working on a mail train as the actors. This was followed — after a spell with Hitchcock — by other dramatised documentaries using fishermen (such as North Sea), and when war broke out, airmen and soldiers (Squadron 992, Target for Tonight) and civilians under stress (London Can Take It, Christmas Under Fire). Watt was the man who ‘put the sweaty sock’ into an over-refined medium. The success of his wartime films showed how warmly people responded to his down-to-earth approach. His experiments led him inevitably into feature film making (The Overlanders, Where No Vultures Fly), where he showed other film makers how to exploit the drama of real life.”
