Description:
'I've seen some bat-witted wheezes in my time but this one takes the certificate of merit,' Darbishire said to Jennings when he heard the plan to rescue the Hibernating Hedgehog. But when Venables told Jennings that foxes ate hedgehogs, there was nothing else for it. All seemed to be going well until Miss Thorpe's puppy got into the changing room, ran over the ants' cattle grid and upset the bottle of Ants' Anti-Escaping Fluid. Would the hedgehog survive? As always Jennings and Darbishire do their very best - and the results are as funny as ever.

Description:
This book analyzes the variety of ways through which Japanese religions (Buddhism, Shintō, and new religious movements) contribute to the dynamics of accelerated globalization in recent decades. It looks at how Japanese religions provide material to cultural global flows, thus acting as carriers of globalization, and how they respond to these flows by shaping new glocal identities.
The book highlights how, paradoxically, these processes of religious hybridization may be closely intertwined with the promotion of cultural chauvinism. It shows how on the one hand religion in Japan is engaged in border negotiation with global subsystems such as politics, secular education, and science, and how on the other hand, it tries to find new legitimation by addressing pressing global problems such as war, the environmental crisis, and economic disparities left unsolved by the dominant subsystems.
A significant contribution to advancing an understanding of modern Japanese religious life, this book is of interest… Read more

Description:
217pp. In 1980, John Bonham, considered one of the greatest drummers of all time, died under tragic circumstances. Two months later, a simple letter signed by fellow band members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones stated that Bonham could not be replaced. After nine multi-million-selling albums and record-breaking world tours, Led Zeppelin came to an abrupt and premature end. This personal account of John Bonham's life was written by the person who knew him best—his brother, Mick. Beginning with his childhood, the book follows Bonham's rise as the internationally acclaimed drummer of one of the most successful rock bands of all time. Featuring interviews and previously unpublished photos, this is a tribute not only to John Bonham, but also to Mick Bonham, who died after completing this book.

Description:
Contents: Edited and with an Introduction by Reginald H. RoyDonald Fraser was in many ways a typical soldier of the Great War. Like thousands of others he enthusiastically enlisted in 1914 to support King and Country in the great European was. Fraser joined a locally raised Battalion at Calgary, Alberta, the 31st (Calgary) Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. His journey from those jubilant days in Calgary led him to the great battlefields of the First World War. Fraser first went into action in September 1915 on the Kemmel front, near Ypres, Belgium. Over the next 2 years he fought in every major battle: St Eloi Craters, Mount Sorrel, the Somme, Vimy, Hill 70, and Passchendaele in November 1917. His experiences of trench life were meticulously recorded, bringing to life a soldier's story. What Fraser inadvertently created was a classic account of the First World War.336 pages, maps, index
