It was also a country on the paths of many invaders. All of these conquerors and peoples left their mark on the land, eventually forming one of the most diverse societies in the world. Modern times ushered in a violent era, from the overthrow of the monarchy in 1973 to the fall of the Taliban almost 30 years later. The experience of mass destruction, death, exile, and tyranny touched every Afghan. Whether the legacy of civic strife can be overcome by the shared experience of suffering is the challenge Afghanistan faces today. A Brief History of Afghanistan provides a clear, concise account of the country's historical and cultural heritage, from 3000 B.C.E. to the present. Comprehensive coverage examines the history of the country, its diverse peoples, its culture, and its political and economic situation. Current events, such as the attempts by the government to improve the country's security and economy and to establish a strong central government, are also included. Coverage also includes • The Rise of Islam to the Afghan State • The Birth of Modern Afghanistan • Twentieth~Century Monarchy • Two Revolutions • Soviet Afghanistan • Afghanistan in Rebellion • Mujahideen Rule • The Taliban Era • The Legacy of the Civil War • The Post~Taliban Era.

About this Item: Mainstream, Edinburgh, 1986, first edition., 1986. 160 pp, large 8vo (9 15/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1851580182 B&w and colour photographs. "This book sets out to celebrate the reign of Queen Elizabeth from a Scottish viewpoint. The throne of England was inherited by the King of Sc ots, and Queen Elizabeth's Scottish pedigree stretches far further back into the mists of time than her English lineage. Through various cousin marriages she descends over twenty times from the ill-fated Mary, Queen of Scots. But for over 200 yea r s no ruling British Monarch set foot on Scottish soil. The Hanovarians resolutely ignored Scotland for four generations, incensed by the Jacobites, although it was through their descent from King James VI of Scotland that they were able to make a l egitimate claim to British Sovereignty. In the nineteenth century it was Queen Victoria's discovery of the Highlands which made Scotland fashionable overnight with Court society. And it is her descendants who have maintained the tradition, holi day ing at Balmoral and participating in the pageantry of Scottish life. The author believes that it is through her royal Scottish descent and from her Scottish mother, Elizabeth of Glamis, that the Queen has inherited the finer qualities of the Sc otti sh character: a sense of purpose and dedication. With an awareness of Scotland's heritage and history, this book examines the Royal Family's involvement with Scotland and pays tribute to a remarkable lady." Previous owner's small Xmas notatio n, da te and signature on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, some areas of very light edge wrinkling, one very small edge tear, a few tiny dints on front panel. Very Good+/Very Good+. Seller Inventory # 25483

About this Item: Macmillan, London, 1978. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 207 pp, 4to (11 1/8" H). B&w illustrations. "There have been few more consistent, or more satisfying, targets for cartoonists over the centuries than Royalty - above all in Britain where for over three hundred years our reigning monarchs have been satirised or flattered, ridiculed or glorified in the public print. (This book) sets out to document this continuing confrontation between the establishment and the caricaturists, from the reign of Elizabeth I to the present day. Political crises, religious schisms, national scandals and passing indiscretions all kindled the fires of contemporary cartoonists' inspiration: Charles I and Parliament, Popish plots and Jacobite invasions, Hanoverian mistresses, the excesses of the Regency, William IV and reform, Victoria and her ministers, Edward VII and his escapades, the Abdication crisis. Here too are the foreigners' views of our kings and queens and royal relatives, and generations of royal courtships and coronations, pomp and patronage seen through the eyes of some of Britain's greatest cartoonists. The work of Gillray, Rowlandson, Cruikshank, Tenniel, May, Beerbohm, Giles, Trog, and many others is testament to freedom of expression in this country and gives a fascinating perspective on the chequered careers of our rulers." Previous owner's initials, place and date in ink on free front endpaper; two tiny soiling marks on free front endpaper; light wear on bottom of boards; light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

First Edition. 2004. vv, 454pp. 16x pages B&W images. "For eleven years, from his defeat at the Battle of the Boyne in July 1690 until his death in 1701, James II lived in one of the most spectacular baroque palaces in Europe at Saint Germain en Laye, holding court as a king in exile. This period is almost completely ignored by those writing about James and yet it was the period which set in train the rise of Jacobitism and allowed James to attempt to fashion the opportunity for his comeback as rightful king. John Callow's book reassesses James's strategy for dealing with his downfall and exile and presents a portrait of a man who planned for himself great political rewards and popular acclaim. That these plans did not materialize was the inevitable result of the changing perception of monarchy in Britain but James left a lasting legacy in the form of Jacobitism on the one hand and a deep suspicion of Catholic monarchs on the other." Unclipped jacket is in very good condition, with minor creasing to bottom of spine. Book has gilt titles to spine. Boards, pages, and contents are in excellent condition with no inscriptions.

CONTENTS: Acknowledgements; Introduction 1 Camillagate 2 Squidgy 3 Dirty Tricks 4 Back to the Beginning 5 The Honeymoon is Over 6 Downfall of a Marriage 7 Spencers at War 8 The Way Forward; Index. SYNOPSIS: The explosive story and full details behind Diana and Charles' relationship have never been revealed.until now. Their breakup sent shock waves around the world, as growing suspicions were officially confirmed: Their fairy-tale marriage was just that - a fairy tale. Not only was the lily-white veil stripped away from their private lives, but the British monarchy itself was suddenly under scathing scrutiny. After all the headlines, the whispers, the rumors, the damaging claims and counterclaims by intimate friends of each, the full inside story of Diana, Charles, and their doomed union is now revealed - by the one person uniquely qualified to tell the lurid and fascinating tale of royal romance, rivalry, and scandal. James Whitaker is famous in England as the authority on the Royal Family - the only journalist to have had access to all the members of the House of Windsor for more than two decades of exclusive reportage. At the same time, he knew the teenage Lady Diana Spencer long before the royal wedding bells. Now he uses his unrivaled experience and privileged sources of information to set the record straight about: The full dimensions of Prince Charles's liaison with Camilla Parker Bowles, including their all-night tryst in the weeks before the wedding, and Camilla's continuing hold on Charles and her power over his married life. The censored sections of the notorious "Squidgy tapes" and their staggeringly sexual content, which detail Diana's affair with James Gilbey, and new candid testimony about her physical relationship with Life Guards officer Major James Hewitt. The blow-by-blow drama of the marriage itself, charged with the hostility of the Royal Family toward the newcomer, the jealousy over Diana's mounting popularity, her concealed eating disorders, her hold on her children's affections, and her perceived threat to the institution of the monarchy. The mistakes, both public and private, made by Charles and Diana, as well as their fatal flaws. Diana's family background, including the new details of Charles's affair with Diana's older sister, Lady Sarah, and Diana's early royal ambitions as frankly voiced in a long-ago conversation with the author. This is but a small sampling of the wealth of fascinating facts and expert analysis in this definitive account of the most sensationally doomed marriage of our time. With vivid personality profiles of an awe-inspiring gallery of characters, with unblushing and authentic depictions of how the Royals live and love, with utter honesty about both the monarchy and the girl now exiled from its charmed circle, Diana vs. Charles offers the most staggering, far-reaching disclosures about the greatest personal crisis ever to shake the Royal Family. James Whitaker has covered the Royal Family for more than two decades for leading English newspapers. In addition, his work has appeared in publications around the world, and his radio and television appearances have won him further popularity and renown as the premier authority on the world of British royalty and aristocracy.

About this Item: Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1976. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. The interior of the book is crisp and clean, showing no marks or wear. The dust jacket is price-clipped, but is also in very good condition, with minor wear, but no chips or tears. The jacket is now in a protective mylar cover. Note: This mystery is set in a parallel version of Britain, where King Victor -- not Queen Elizabeth -- reigns. Synopsis: "The monarchy is not what it used to be. King Victor II may be the great-great-grandson of Queen Victoria, but political and economic realities have intruded even on Buckingham Palace, where family breakfasts center on proposals for tightening the household budget (no, Princess Louise will not be hiring out as a babysitter) and the King - a licensed physician -- fumes at Parliament's refusal to permit him to practice medicine, for fear of lawsuits. Nor has royal dignity been spared. A practical joker has invaded the palace, but his tricks, initially amusing, have turned deadly, and seem increasingly to be focused on the teenage Princess Louise. The trickster, it seems clear, wants her to divulge some secret to the Greater British Public, but which one? With a royal family's worth of skeletons in the closet, there are too many to choose from.". Seller Inventory # 005710

About this Item: U.K / The Folio Society, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. This is a 3 volume set. The 1st book 'The King’s Peace 1637-1641' was originally published in 1955. This volume tells the story of the four eventful years which immediately preceded the Civil War, years which transformed the tranquil dominions of King Charles into a land rent by mistrust and menaced by fire and sword. It tells of the rise of the covenanters in Scotland with such leaders as the gallant Montrose and the mysterious Argyll. It tells of Parliament's opposition to the King under the skilful leadership of John Pym. The tragedy of Strafford is linked with the terrible insurrection in Ireland. This has an Introduction by Richard Ollard. / The 2nd book 'The King’s War 1641-1647' was originally published in 1958 and covers the story of the great rebellion from 1642-1647, from the arrest of the five members to the dramatic moment when the Scots surrendered the captive King Charles to the English. During these years the great battles of Marston Moor and Baseby Wree fought, Rupert emerged as the King's chief general and Montrose conducted his brilliant but forlorn campaign in Scotland. On the parliamentary side the death of Pym was followed by the rise of Cromwell, both in parliament and in the field. / The 3rd book 'The Trial Of Charles I' was originally published in 1964 & in this acclaimed account, the author recreates the dramatic events of the trial and Charles’s final days, to vividly bring to life the main actors in this tragic and compelling story. The reign of Charles I, defined by religious conflict, a titanic power struggle with Parliament, and culminating in the English Civil Wars, the execution of the king, and the brief abolition of the monarchy, was one of the most turbulent in English history. Six years after the First Civil War began, and following Charles’ support for the failed Royalist uprising of the Second Civil War, an act of Parliament was passed that produced something unprecedented in the history of England: the trial of an English king on a capital charge. There followed ten extraordinary weeks that finally drew to a dark end on January 30, 1649, when Charles was beheaded in Whitehall. With illustrations, charts & maps. This is a cloth bound 7th printing of this hardback set with its slip-case in fine condition. (1272 pages & 64 pages of introduction in total). This is a heavy set, over 3.2kg so there will be an extra postage charge. Seller Inventory # 5001
