The English Country House takes a look at the architecture and interiors of sixty-two stunning houses in a range of architectural styles spanning seven centuries—from the medieval Stokesay Castle to the newly built, Lutyens-inspired Corfe Farm—brought to life through the world-renowned photography library of Country Life. More than four hundred color and black and white illustrations provide an insight into the architecture, decoration, gardens, and landscape settings of these houses, which are set into their architectural and historical context by the accompanying text and extended capti

Scotland has always been a popular destination with American visitors, who are attracted by the dramatic scenery, warm hospitality, the finest malt whiskies, and world-renowned golf courses. Many also come to trace ancestors and to investigate the history and traditions of the clans. Information on all this and more can be found in this 7th edition of the Cadogan guide to Scotland. The author guides readers on a tour through Scotland region by region, taking in ghost-spotting at Glamis Castle, a stroll in the celestial gardens at Finlaystone, a chilly swim in the waters of Loch Ness, and a vis

This collection explores how Chinese women and girls have been transferred, bought and sold for marriage, concubinage, domestic service and prostitution, and the avenues of escape open to them, over the century from 1860 to 1960. The issues that it raises are of immediate interest today. The trade in women and girls has reappeared in China on a large scale since the mid-1970s, and in the last few years more than 65,000 people have been arrested for trafficking. Based on original documents, oral testimony and personal experience, the book is enriched by the eye-witness accounts of the women con

"I wonder if the new year is to bring us new miseries and sufferings," seventeen-year-old Emma LeConte wrote in her diary on December 31, 1864. In fact, the worst was yet to come. Her later entries portray the city of Columbia, South Carolina, like much of the South, under the grip of Sherman’s army. No reader of this diary is likely to forget the defiant, well-bred Emma, who describes a family’s anxieties and brave attempts to get on with life while the Civil War rages around them.

The literature on women enslaved around the world has grown rapidly in the last ten years, evidencing strong interest in the subject across a range of academic disciplines. Until Women and Slavery, no single collection has focused on female slaves who—as these two volumes reveal—probably constituted the considerable majority of those enslaved in Africa, Asia, and Europe over several millennia and who accounted for a greater proportion of the enslaved in the Americas than is customarily acknowledged. Women enslaved in the Americas came to bear highly gendered reputations among whites—as
