Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The English Civil War is one of the most hotly contested areas of English History and John Miller is one of the experts on the period. Amid dramatic accounts of the key battles and confrontations, Miller explores what triggered the initial conflict between crown and parliament and how this was played out in England, Scotland and Ireland in the lead - up to war. As the war developed, personalities and innovations on the battlefield became increasingly important, culminating in the rise of Oliver Cromwell and the radical New Model Army. The wars changed the political, social, religious and intellectual landscape of the country for ever. Using a lifetime's knowledge and study on the period, John Miller brings this extraordinary turning point in British history to life.

9. A Freedom Bought with Blood African American War Literature from the Civil War to World War II (Large Print 16pt) - Jennifer C. James

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 65.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In the first comprehensive study of African American war literature, Jennifer James analyzes fiction, poetry, autobiography, and histories about the major wars waged before the desegregation of the U.S. military in 1948. Examining literature about the Civil War, the Spanish-American Wars, World War I, and World War II, James introduces a range of rare and understudied texts by writers such as Victor Daly, F. Grant Gilmore, William Gardner Smith, and Susie King Taylor. She argues that works by these as well as canonical writers such as William Wells Brown, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and Gwendolyn Brooks mark a distinctive contribution to African American letters. In establishing African American war literature as a long-standing literary genre in its own right, James also considers the ways in which this writing, centered as it is on moments of national crisis, complicated debates about black identity and African Americans' claims to citizenship. In a provocative assessment, James argues that the very ambivalence over the use of violence as a political instrument defines African American war writing and creates a compelling, contradictory body of literature that defies easy summary.

11. A Nice Place to Visit (Large Print 16pt) - Sky Gilbert

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

It's difficult to describe A Nice Place to Visit. Some will say it's not a book of poetry at all - but that's just because it's funny and has reviews of bad movies and advice on things like love. Also, it's a kind of travelogue: you get to go to Costa Rica and look at plants and and stuff and think more about love. And oh yeah, the book tells you who not to sleep with - that's very important. And have you ever heard of John Wildman, the guy who starred in the Canadian hit movie My American Cousin? Well, there's an ode to him. There are memorable lines like ''Lois and Fran gave me a frying pan.'' (But you probably won't like it if you haven't heard of Parker Posey. You have heard of Parker Posey, right?) Mostly it's about things you'll always remember - like that summer when the boys in Montreal were all wearing underwear that said ''Home Of The Brave.'' You know . . . It's a nice place to visit - but I wouldn't want to live there.

15. Accidental Genius Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content (Large Print 16pt) - Mark Levy

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 20.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

When it comes to creating ideas, we hold ourselves back. That's because inside each of us is an internal editor whose job is to forever polish our thoughts, so we sound smart and in control, and so that we fit into society. But what happens when we encounter problems where such conventional thinking fails us? How to get unstuck? For Mark Levy, the answer is freewriting, a technique he's used for years to solve all types of business problems, and generate ideas for books, articles and blog posts. Freewriting is deceptively simple: Start writing as fast as you can, for as long as you can, about a subject you care deeply about, while ignoring the standard rules of grammar and spelling. Your internal editor won't be able to keep up with your output, and will be temporarily shunted into the background. You'll now be able to think more honestly and resourcefully than before, and will generate breakthrough ideas and solutions that you couldn't have created any other way. Levy shares six freewriting secrets designed to knock out your editor and let your genius run free. He also includes fifteen problem - solving and creativity - stimulating principles you can use if you need more firepower - seven of which are new to this edition - and stories of problems he and others have solved through freewriting. Also new to this edition: an extensive section on how to refine your freewriting into something you can share with the world. Although Levy originally taught freewriting as a private brainstorming technique, over the years he and his clients have found that, with some tweaking, it's a great way to generate content for books, articles, and other thought leadership pieces.

16. Against the Hard Angle Poems (Large Print 16pt) - Matt Robinson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The two sections that comprise matt robinson's fourth full - length volume of poetry, Against the Hard Angle, though disparate in terms of form - the first consisting primarily of a long poem; the other a collection of shorter lyrical pieces - nonetheless share a common concern with ideas of relationship and its examination. At their core, these are poems about where we stand in relation to the rest of our various worlds. In the collection's opening section, the eponymous (and 2009 Malahat Review Long Poem Award winning) ''against the hard angle'' steadily develops a grudging momentum, all the while searching for a way to articulate loss, in the end becoming a kind of meditative catalogue of relationship breakdown and divorce. The second section takes as its immediate subject matter a different sort of relationship altogether. Having returned home after nearly a decade elsewhere, these are poems that reference robinson's native Halifax, NS, more specifically and vividly than in his previous work; these are lines with ''the near / magical pull of some deep - seeded magnet now spinning, / we'd guess, completely / and fully out of control - a crazed, elemental / ballet.'' Part extended love song to and for a city and part meditation on what a city can both say to and about us, Against the Hard Angle uses some of Halifax's most and least famous places as jumping off points for a stop - and - start lyrical tour of eastern Canada's largest urban centre, a sometimes fraught journey that leaves us ''all tendon - tensed, / against impact, near white - knuckled to / breakage.''

19. Always Die Before Your Mother (Large Print 16pt) - Patrick Woodcock

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Like an embedded journalist, Patrick Woodcock writes his poetry from the front lines of experience. From cities reeling from the trauma of siege warfare to the stifling heat and politics of the Arabian Peninsula to the darkest corners of the South American rain forest, Woodcock's poems bear witness to a world that is equally immediate and remote... and far more complex than we often imagine. In his new book Always Die Before You Mother, Woodcock takes us around the globe - recording whatever he can. Like a photographer using the changeable lenses of image and idiom, he transforms all that he sees into a searing commentary on human failures both public and private, those of our societies, our politics and our religions, as well as his own failures as a son.
