Robson Books Ltd, London, 1995. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. It has been estimated that during the First World War 75,000 French soldiers were killed or maimed by 'friendly fire', the euphemism commonly used for being killed by one's own colleagues or allies, presumably in error. As recently as the Gulf War the heaviest British casualties suffered in a single engagement were caused when US forces fired at British armoured vehicles, killing nine of the men inside. A quarter of all American casualties in Iraq in 1991 were caused by other American soldiers. How can this happen? How widespread is it? To what extent is the problem covered up? In this startling and revelatory study, military historian Geoffrey Regan presents a chilling expose of war's most incomprehensible tragedies and attempts to answer these questions. Covering an impressive sweep of history from the days of Alexander the Great to the twentieth century - including Korea, Vietnam, ... Read more

Hamish Hamilton, London, 1982. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Topless bathing was allowed on Sabal Beach, but if any other form of intimate exposure occurred for the barest fraction of a moment, police from the neighbouring city of Calusa, Florida, magically appeared and made an immediate arrest. The first time Matthew Hope, a leading Calusa attorney, saw Michelle Harper was on Sabal Beach one Saturday; he thought her spectacularly beautiful. On Monday she came to him as a client. She had been brutally beaten. Her husband, she said, was responsible. Next day, on another beach, her dead body was found; her hands and legs had been bound and she had apparently been burnt to death. George Harper, her husband, was the blackest black man Matthew had ever seen. Also the biggest, and the ugliest. When George had been interrogated, Matthew found himself representing the husband, rather than the murdered wife. Calusa regards itself as sophisticated. But by the time Matthe ... Read more

privately published, Germany, 2016. Eighth Edition. Softcover. New Book/No Dust Jacket. These memories of J. Krishnamurti - or K, as he would sometimes refer to himself - pertain to the last three years of his life, when the author was in regular contact with him. Many people are familiar with K through his books and recordings or by having attended his public talks, and indeed he often said about himself that it's not the person that is important but rather what he says. But he also asked the people who were near him if they could convey the perfume of what it was like to be around him. The Beauty of the Mountain is Friedrich Grohe’s attempt to do this, as well as being a place to gather some remarkable statements of K's that are not generally found elsewhere.
