Ideas Have Legs by Peter Howard (£13.50)Publisher: London: Frederick Muller — 1945Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed with a little loss. Gently faded at the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “Ideas Have Legs is the story of the next twenty years in the making.

In the many-coloured perspective of one eventful life we meet the men and ideas that shape our times — and will shape the future. Churchill, Beaverbrook, Lenin, and a host of others step through these pages. We move with Howard through Fleet Street and farm, Twickenham and Westminster.

And all the time, amid the strengths and frailties of statesmen, the humours and labours of war-time farming, the thrills of international rugger and the world bobsleigh championship, runs an idea which illuminates the world situation and makes plain the British way ahead.

Howard has found a new momentum for his pungent political pen. His diagnosis has the refreshment of hope. He goes beyond criticism to cure.

Peter and Doe Howard have stakes in the future — Philip, Anne, and Anthony, their children.

This book dares to look into the future with realism and confidence. Its pages echo to the tramp of the marching ideologies bidding for the mastery of the world. “Ideas took legs, and the legs began to march,” says Howard.

In Ideas Have Legs, Howard presents the answer — Britain’s Big Idea which is destined to outmarch all others.”

Fighters of the Luftwaffe by Joachim Dressel & Manfred Greihl (£12.50)Publisher: London: Arms & Armour Press — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1854091395]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “In this encyclopedic new work, the combined talents of two leading German aviation historians have produced possibly the ultimate illustrated reference to all German fighter aircraft. Most of the 300-plus original photographs have never been published before and they superbly illustrate all sub-types and development models of more than 30 aircraft.

All types are included: the advanced designs in the rearmament of the 1930s, such as the Heinkel 112, Henschel 121 and Messerschmitt 109, through every wartime fighter, including the FW 190A-D models, Bf 210 and Me 410, Ta 152, He 219 and Do 335, and full coverage of the development of the revolutionary jet and rocket aircraft in which Germany was far in advance of the Allies.

The appeal of this book is also in the range of aircraft photographs, which show special power-plant, radar and weapons developments as well as unusual unit markings, photos of types in manufacture and operational conversions in the field — all rarely seen. The accompanying text emphasises the development of the Luftwaffe fighters, with facts and figures on the huge range of variants and sub-types under testing and of which little is known — for example, the evolution of the standard Bf 109 into the P 1091 Extreme High Altitude Fighter of almost 60,000-feet operational ceiling.

There are numerous books on this subject, but few can boast the number and diversity of new illustrations and the comprehensive nature of the technical data in this superb new study. Restorers, collectors, historians and modellers will relish the wealth of fresh information offered by such a volume which sheds much new light on a subject previously considered incomplete.”

The Decline and Rise of British Industry by David Clutterbuck & Stuart Craine (£11.50)Publisher: W. H. Allen — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1852510307]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: From the flap: “Has Britain really recovered from its decades-long industrial decline? What has to be done to maintain the recovery? And how did our industry become so uncompetitive in the first place? Here are the facts and the statistics behind the collapse of British industrial power and influence between the end of the Second World War and the late 1970s, and the subsequent return to apparent health in the Thatcherite years. Views vary widely on the causes of the decline; yet there is a remarkable degree of agreement as to what needs to be done to continue the recovery. Continue is the key word, for though the patient is off the critical list, he is far from dancing with rude health.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 388 pages.

The World the Dollar Built by Gunther Stein (£11.50)Publisher: Dennis Dobson — 1952Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with slight fraying at the corners and tape reinforcement to the reverse of the head of the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Tanning and light spotting to the pastedowns and blanks. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “Here is a book which will come as something of a revelation even to the informed reader since it shows how the American economy has now become underwritten by the rearmament programme. Certainly it reveals the tragic consequences for the world of America’s departure from Rooseveltian principles which required that the U.S. put her own economic house in order to enable herself to lead the world to peace through plenty.

Despite America’s genuine desire for world-wide peace and progress, her one-sided economic development has led to distortions of her foreign policies which in turn have contributed to the drifting of the world from crisis to crisis. Gunther Stein suggests that America’s business is our business and that we must try, through the United Nations, to help America put a solid floor under the economic risk of disarmament and peace. The alternatives to this policy are war or slump.”

Britain And The Beast by Peter [Dunsmore] Howard (£9.50)Publisher: William Heinemann — 1963Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: From the cover: “Has Britain a future as a great nation?

In this robust book Peter Howard recognizes that Britain may never again be so powerful in arms and wealth as some other countries. But this does not dismay him for he believes that her greatness resides not in bulging banks and bellies, but in the character of her people.

Howard writes with pungent frankness about the present assault on our national character -and the decline which has made many abroad think Britain is finished. The conflict and inefficiency which have made our industrial growth the slowest in Europe, the debunking of patriotism, the campaign to call queers normal and normals queer, churchmen who question accepted morality, philosophers who point man back to the beast, men of Right and Left who fight class war — all come in for stimulating attention.

Howard calls for a revolution of the best of Britain — an uprising of all those who believe the ways of moral straightness and patriotism are best, and that the nation can be rearmed morally in time to arrest decline and give us a new lease of leadership.

This book is a ringing reaffirmation of faith in Britain’s future. Howard holds that the puzzling malaise of our nation is something that we can cure and cure quickly, answering unemployment, stagnation and confusion. He offers hope that Britain may yet by her exertions and example show humanity how to rebuild a broken world.”
