Review: Gideon is a high-concept political thriller by Russell Andrews (the pen name of a partnership between book editor Peter Gethers and mystery novelist David Handler). n nWhen a promising New York writer named Carl Granville is paid a quarter of a million dollars to produce a novel called Gideon, he thinks it's his lucky break. The book is to be based on the material of an old diary--which Carl is allowed to look at, although certain dates and names have been blacked out. The diary and novel involve a 10-year-old Southern boy who killed his brain-damaged baby brother. Carl, baffled but glad of the huge payoff, gets on with translating the diary into a bestseller. But when the editor who commissioned the book is murdered, and nobody at the publishing house knows anything about the Gideon project, the writer realizes that sinister forces are at large. Just to add to his troubles, Granville is accused of the editor's murder and is forced to go on the run to escape the FBI and an assassin. His only chance for clearing his name is to reveal who wrote the decades-old journal. n nGideon is an invigorating read with a remarkably fresh plot and a highly likable and believable protagonist.

King Arthur's Round Table: An Archaeological Investigation
Mint condition. The Boydell Press, 2000. First paperback edition. Paperback(two small nicks on the edges of the cover) in mint condition. Illustrated with many colour, b/w plates, drawings, plans, diagrams. 564pp including list of colour plates, abbreviations, figures and tables, Appendices 1 & 2, index. Heavy book(approx. 1, 4 Kg). First paperback edition Product Description: The vast wooden disk known as King Arthur's Round Table has hung on the wall of the great Hall of Winchester Castle for six hundred years. But what is it? Was it ever a table? When was it made? Why is it hanging on the wall? When was it painted with the famous image it now bears? And why at Winchester? In 1976 the Round Table was taken down from the wall and thoroughly examined by a team of historians and scientists assembled by Martin Biddle, and its history began to emerge. Built in the reign of Edward I, it was probably the centrepiece of a feast held at Winchester after a forgotten tournament celebrating marriage plans for the king's children; Edward III, founder of the Order of the Garter, had the top hung up in the castle hall as a symbol of his interest in the chivalric idea of the company of Arthur's Round Table; Henry VIII had it painted and used the figure of Arthur to support his claim to be arbiter of European power. This most enigmatic of objects at last yields up these and other secrets to scientific analysis and historical deduction. Fine. ISBN: 9780851156262

VGC. Victor Gollancz, 1974. First edition. Large format green hardback(gilt illustration on the front cover, gilt lettering to the spine, small nick on the edge of the back cover) with Dj(very small tear, a couple of creases and nicks on the edges of the Dj cover), both in VGC. Illustrated inside the front and back cover, full colour, b/w photos, maps, drawings. Nice and clean pages but with a pen mark on the outer edges, two small creases on the edge of the pages. The book is in VGC with light shelf wear on the Dj cover. 240pp including List of colour plates, maps of crusades, bibliography, index. Price un-clipped. Heavy book. Product Description: For nearly two centuries, from 1096 until 1291, a tide of pilgrims, knights, men-at-arms, priests, traders and peasants swept from Western Europe to the Levant - Crusaders whose common aim was to recover the Holy Place of Christendom. The Sword and the Scimitar is a saga of one of the most fanatical religious wars in world history. It is a story abounding with highly distinctive personalities - popes, saints, kings, sultans and heroes like Saladin and Richard Coeur de Lion, of the encounter of two great cultures and their cross-fertilization. It tells of the three great Military Orders, the Knights Hospitaller of St John, the Teutonic Knights and the Knights Templar. It does not disguise the savagery that accompanied the capture of Jerusalem by the Crusaders or the scenes of fire and carnage when the Kingdom of Jerusalem fell nearly two centuries later, and the markets of the East were so flooded with Christian slaves that a young Frankish woman might be sold for one silver coin.

Montgomery of Alamein
VGC. Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1976. First edition. The book is accompanied with an old photo of Montgomery of Alamein, with a message and his printed signature. Brown hardback(gilt lettering to the spine) with Dj(small tear on the edge of the back Dj cover, a couple of nicks, creases and scratch on the Dj cover), both in VGC. Illustrated with b/w photos, maps. Nice and clean pages with two small ink marks, nick and slightly tainted on the outer edges, small ink mark on the edge of the pages. Nice and clean book with light shelf wear. Price un-clipped. 375pp including list of illustrations, maps, selected bibliography and index, A collectable first edition. Review: A timely and judicious biography of Bernard Montgomery, the British WW II commander, written without recourse to Monty's private papers but providing astute appraisals of the man's character and his modus operandi. The battle descriptions per se are least notable: Chalfont points out the material superiority of the British in North Africa and Montgomery's failure to destroy Rommel as the Germans retreated, while the Overlord invasion of occupied Europe is discussed chiefly by way of the bickerings within the Allied command. Full due is given to the troops' affectionate respect for the otherwise loutish general; after his WW I experiences, Chalfont suggests, Montgomery was determined to waste no manpower and to imbue the lower ranks with full understanding of each operation. Montgomery's exceptional grasp of modern logistics and technology is also stressed, though not elaborated. Chalfont further denies that Monty was overcautious or inflexible in war; and after all, he never lost a battle from North Africa on. Monty's psychological history is elaborated with relish (the book caused something of a sensation in Britain, where it was generally thought harsh but just). After a straitened Fundamentalist boyhood spent at war with his mother, he was disgraced at Sandhurst for his exceptional sadism. Along with a late and devoted marriage ended by the shattering death of his wife, he preserved a certain epicene quality and austere love of young men. Impregnably self-righteous, he was also surpassingly skilled and dedicated: Chalfont conveys all these dimensions in a disarming, convincing fashion. (Kirkus Reviews). Very Good/Very Good.

HALE, JOHN.
The Civilization of Europe in the Renaissance.
Fine condition. HarperCollins, 1993. First Paperback edition-first printing(1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2). Paperback(two small nicks and a crease on the edge of the cover and spine)in fine condition. Illustrated with many b/w photos, drawings. Nice and clean pages with a small nick on the outer edges, small creases and nicks on the edges of the pages, small pencil mark impression on the edge of the first page of the book. Nice and clean book. 672pp including:notes, bibliography, list of illustrations and index. Please note: Thi is very heavy book. Synopsis: This is a rich portrait of Europe and its civilization in the 16th century - the moment when Europe first became an entity in the minds of its own inhabitants. It does not simply survey high culture, but paints a gigantic portrait of the age, enlivened by a mass of detail about the lives of often obscure figures who Hale brings to life to give point to his multiplicity of arguments. What precisely is meant by civilization? How usefully descriptive of the period as a whole is Renaissance? What, indeed, did Italy (for example) mean to contemporaries? These are some of the questions which Hale addresses in this challenging book. Fine. ISBN: 9780002153393
