Product Description: This is Oswald Sickert's delicate examination of two middle-class, late-Victorian characters – an ambitious writer and his wife, a freshly liberated woman — and their rather modern relationship. It has been more than a century since this book first appeared (in 1894, in Unwin's 'Pseudonym Library' — where Sickert's pseudonym was simply ‘Oswald Valentine') but the anxieties of modern lives lived in a period of transition will be quite familiar to most twenty-first century readers...read more

The original sportsman's bible, originally published in 1913, now finally available to the modern-day hunter and fisherman. An absolute gem of a book, The Complete Sportsman's Encyclopedia offers the reader a no-holds-barred education in every aspect of the sporting life - from bait fishing and fly casting to big game hunting. In 1913, Francis H. Buzzacott, renowned trapper, hunter, and guide, put down what he hoped would be a portable and "practical volume containing much information one in the 'Woods' would like, or ought to know." The result is a book as essential today to the sporting man as it was at the turn of the century. With sections that include The Complete Camper's Manual, The Complete Fisherman and Angler's Manual, The Complete Hunter's & Sportsmen's Manual and Trapper's Guide, and The Complete Big Game Hunter's Manual or the Rifle-Man's Guide, The Complete Sportsman's Encyclopedia covers a vast terrain of information in a concise, no-nonsense manner. Here Buzzacott explains: - outfitting properly and thoroughly for fishing, hunting, or camping trips - reliable weather signs and how to read them - troubleshooting for fishermen and anglers - leaders, snells, floats, hooks, and flies - ducks, decoys, blinds, and dogs - trapping and tanning - loading, reloading, and cleaning rifles, pistols, etc. - hunting deer, bear, and moose - invaluable hints and pointers for hunters - and much, much more The splendid photographs and illustrations that adorn its pages render this volume as much a cherished fireside reader as it is a valued companion in the field. The Complete Sportsman's Encyclopedia is a wise compendium of good old-fashioned knowledge that will bring satisfaction to sportsmen for decades to come.

French anti-Americanism has recently gotten our attention, and caused an equal and opposite reaction. As Denis Boyles writes in the introduction to Vile France, 'What we mistakenly see as a craven, anti-Semitic, hypocritical, hysterically anti-American, selfish, overtaxed, culturally exhausted country bereft of ideas... is actually worse than all that. It's vile.' In this funny and insightful polemic, Boyles, who has lived and worked in France for several years, examines the internal crises--a falling birthrate, an expanding Muslim minority, economic stagnation, a lessening of international prestige--that have changed what was once 'La Belle France' into a nation afflicted with status anxiety. He explains how a country that endlessly repeats its credentials as America's oldest ally has become one of our most resolute enemies, wielding the biggest weapon in its arsenal--the European Union--against the interests of an America that it fears and envies.
