    "Recent movies on slavery, Twelve Years A Slave, Django Unchained, Lincoln and documentaries, The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross by Henry Louis Gates, Unchained Memories by Oprah Winfrey and Slavery By Another Name, have created a renewed interest in the series SLAVE NARRATIVES; A Folklore History of Slavery in the United States with interviews with former Slaves. The SLAVE NARRATIVES were collected in the 1930s as part of the Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The SLAVE NARRATIVES provides a unique and unsurpassed collective portrait of African-American population during slavery. SLAVE NARRATIVES thus constitute an illuminating and invaluable source of data about antebellum and post-Emancipation Southern life, the institution of slavery, and, most important, the reactions and perspectives of those who had been enslaved. The moving text yields great insight into the impact of slavery upon human lives. State and local historians and genealogists use the Slave Narratives as a valuable research tool. The SLAVE NARRATIVES are published by state, so if your library cannot afford the entire set of nineteen volumes you may purchase individual volumes on the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

    "This book continues the discussion of new processes and developments in ionic liquid technology introduced in the first volume. Written by an international group of key academic and industrial chemists, this next book in the series includes eleven overviews of specific areas of ionic liquid chemistry including: physicochemical properties of ionic liquids, a patent survey, ionic liquid membrane technology, engineering simulations, molecular simulations. The goal of this volume is to provide expert overviews that range from applied to theoretical, synthetic to analytical, and biotechnological to electrochemical, while also offering consistent abbreviations of ionic liquids throughout the text. The value of Ionic Liquids Further UnCOILed: Critical Expert Overviews lies in the authors’ expertise and their willingness to share it with the reader. Included in the book is insight into typical problems related to experimental techniques, selection of liquids, and variability of data—all of which were overseen by Professor Ken Seddon, one of the book’s editors and a world leader in ionic liquids. This book is a must read for R&D chemists in industrial, governmental, and academic laboratories, and for commercial developers of environmentally sustainable processes. It offers insight and appreciation for the direction in which the field is going, while also highlighting the best published works available, making it equally valuable to new and experienced chemists alike."

    « Known as the 'Edgar Allen Poe of cinema', Tod Browning is truly the dark master of filmmaking. However, despite the commercial success he enjoyed during his lifetime, he has never received the critical acclaim his work deserves. Studying under the great master, DW Griffiths, Browning employed a unique cinematic style, involving cross-cutting between scenes, dark noir-ish shadows, and macabre subject matter. Best known for his films "Freaks", "The Unknown", "Mark of the Vampire", "The Devil Doll and Dracula", his dark, gothic style has influenced such filmmakers as Sam Raimi, David Lynch and Tim Burton. »

    « Evelyn Waugh was described by Graham Greene as 'the greatest novelist of my generation', yet reckoned by Hilaire Belloc to have been possessed by the devil. Fifty years on from his death, Philip Eade takes a fresh look at this famously complex character and tells the full story of his dramatic, colourful and frequently bizarre life; his formative homosexual love affairs at Oxford; his disastrous first marriage and subsequent conversion to Roman Catholicism; his unrequited love for the brightest of the bright young people; his complex interest in the aristocracy and what the aristocrats made of him ; his insane bravery yet chequered wartime career; his drug-induced madness; his strangely successful second marriage; his unconventional attitude to his six children; his sharp tongue; his devastating wit; the love, fear and loathing that he variously inspired. »

    « Thomas and Mary have been married for thirty years. They have two children, a dog, a house in the suburbs. But after years of drifting apart, things – finally – come to a head. In this love story in reverse, Tim Parks recounts what happens when youthful devotion has long given way to dog walking, separate bed times, and tensions over who left the fridge door open. "Mordantly amusing, deeply sad novel, a blackly comic study of a 30-year-old marriage. A cautionary tale for couples heedless of the care and kindness a good relationship requires, and a horror story for those who discover they are simply but irreparably mismatched." »

    « With a landslide in the first round, this unassuming antiwar socialist crushed the opposition, dealing a huge blow to the Blairite opposition. For the first time in decades, socialism is back on the agenda - and for the first time in Labour's history, it defines the leadership. This book tells the story of how Jeremy Corbyn's rise was made possible by the long decline of Labour and a deep crisis in British democracy. And finally it asks, with all the artillery that is still ranged against Corbyn, and given the crisis-ridden Labour Party that he has inherited, what it would mean for him to succeed. »
