In 1984, "The People" newspaper branded Ian Bone 'the most dangerous man in Britain'. They weren't far wrong. From the inner city riots of 1981 to the miners' strike and beyond the butler's son and founder of Class War was indeed a greater thorn in Margaret Thatcher's side than the useless blatherings of the Official Opposition. Class War were the real opposition! It was Ian Bone who linked the inner city rioters of Brixton and Handsworth with the striking miners. It was Bone who "The People" spotted rioting with miners in Mansfield, attacking laboratories with the Animal Liberation Front and being fingered by the "Guardian" as the man behind the 1985 Brixton Riot. But that was only the half of it...from 1965 to 1985, from Swansea to Cardiff and London the mayhem spread countrywide. In "Bash The Rich", Ian Bone tells it like it was. From The Angry Brigade to The Free Wales Army, from the 1967 Summer of Love to 1977 anarcho-punk, from Grosvenor Square to the Battle of the Beanfield from the Stop the City riots to Bashing the Rich at the Henley Regatta, Ian Bone breaks his silence.

London is under siege. A banking scandal has filled the city with violent protests, and as the anger in the streets detonates, a young homeless man burns to death after being caught in the crossfire between rioters and the police. But all is not as it seems; an opportunistic killer is using the chaos to exact revenge, but his intended victims are so mysteriously chosen that the Peculiar Crimes Unit is called in to find a way of stopping him. Using their network of eccentric contacts, elderly detectives Arthur Bryant and John May hunt down a murderer who adopts incendiary methods of execution. But they soon find their investigation taking an apocalyptic turn as the case comes to involve the history of mob rule, corruption, rebellion, punishment and the legend of Guy Fawkes. At the same time, several members of the PCU team reach dramatic turning points in their lives - but the most personal tragedy is yet to come, for as the race to bring down a cunning killer reaches its climax, Arthur Bryant faces his own devastating day of reckoning. ‘I always said we’d go out with a hell of a bang,’ warns Bryant.

Japan and the Culture of the Four Seasons

Elegant representations of nature and the four seasons populate a wide range of Japanese genres and media—from poetry and screen painting to tea ceremonies, flower arrangements, and annual observances. In Japan and the Culture of the Four Seasons, Haruo Shirane shows how, when, and why this practice developed and explicates the richly encoded social, religious, and political meanings of this imagery. Refuting the belief that this tradition reflects Japan's agrarian origins and supposedly mild climate, Shirane traces the establishment of seasonal topics to the poetry composed by the urban nobility in the eighth century. After becoming highly codified and influencing visual arts in the tenth and eleventh centuries, the seasonal topics and their cultural associations evolved and spread to other genres, eventually settling in the popular culture of the early modern period. Contrasted with the elegant images of nature derived from court poetry was the agrarian view of nature based on rural life. The two landscapes began to intersect in the medieval period, creating a complex, layered web of competing associations. Shirane discusses a wide array of representations of nature and the four seasons in many genres, originating in both the urban and rural perspective: textual (poetry, chronicles, tales), cultivated (gardens, flower arrangement), material (kimonos, screens), performative (noh, festivals), and gastronomic (tea ceremony, food rituals). He reveals how this kind of "secondary nature," which flourished in Japan's urban architecture and gardens, fostered and idealized a sense of harmony with the natural world just at the moment it was disappearing. Illuminating the deeper meaning behind Japanese aesthetics and artifacts, Shirane clarifies the use of natural images and seasonal topics and the changes in their cultural associations and function across history, genre, and community over more than a millennium. In this fascinating book, the four seasons are revealed to be as much a cultural construction as a reflection of the physical world.

The backdrop for the first excerpt (from chapter one of The Celtic Code) is the turbulent confrontations, often deadly and destructive, occurring in Northern Ireland between pro-Irish and pro-British factions who want to determine the future of the disputed territory. Look at those flags, would you? Patrick said disgustingly, referring to the national flags of Great Britain and Ireland hanging conspicuously outside the Victorian style masonry building. The bloody Brits want us to think that the sides are equal and that progress will be made at this meeting. When Patrick saw the police shut the main door of the guildhall and close ranks around the building, he knew that all of the participants were present. He patiently waited a little longer, looking at his watch. Our people should be out of the meeting room by now. May God be with them if theyre not. He pulled a cigarette and a book of matches from his shirt pocket and, at the same time, he withdrew the remote control, concealing it in the palm of his hand. He grabbed Timothys shirt and pulled him closer, hiding his hand and remote detonation device between them... . This one is for you, Sean, Patrick said under his breath, referring to the deceased founder of the SLC (Shamrock Liberation Council). Sean had been a militant Irish patriot who had died for their sacred cause. May God bless your soul. When his somber dedication was complete, Patrick slid the cover from the remote control and pulled on Timothy, forcing him to take cover behind the stone wall. Protected, Patrick pressed the red detonation button without hesitating. Momentarily, a horrendous blast erupted inside the guildhall. The deafening noise was followed by pieces of glass and chucks of masonry showering virtually everything within blocks. Thick clouds of smoke filled the air along with the distinctive odor of burning wood. As the last of the fragments of the building pelted to the ground, the sounds of painful screams and sirens filled the air. A few people, those who could, began staggering out of the building, injured and dazed by the explosion. People who were not injured were running about aimlessly, not knowing where to go, or what to do. Fire was roaring from the busted windows, masonry rubble was strewn over the street, and bodies, some with smoldering clothing, were crumpled on the sidewalk. Patrick and Timothy stood to survey the devastation they had caused, then casually began walking away while frantic people ran past them, scurrying in every direction. They returned to their car and slowly drove from the city to report the success of their mission. The SLC had delivered an ultimatum to the British government, violently announcing that the small, dedicated army of patriots was prepared to do whatever was necessary to secure the independence of Northern Ireland. The British Prime Minister determined to end the terrorism, calls for a secret Celtic summit. The PM invites several leaders of the free world to develop a hard-line solution for dealing with the fanatical organizations that are determined to free Northern Ireland from Great Britain. An American, Byron Coulter, accompanying his wife, Hillary, on a business trip to London, becomes involved in the PMs secret meeting. Byron unknowing obtains a cryptic code detailing the particulars about the secret Celtic summit meeting; a coded message that was intended for the SLC, an ultra militant splinter group of the IRA. The SLC uses several subtle methods to recover the code, but all of them fail. Determined to destroy the Celtic summit, the SLC leadership employs more sinister means to recover the code, ultimately resorting to intimidation, kidnapping, and murder. Byron, disguised with his wifes blind ambition to become a corporate executive, decides to return to the states. In the London airport, he meets a charming woman, Mary Kate, who manage

From the founders of the international health-care behemoth Johnson & Johnson in the late 1800s to the contemporary Johnsons of today, such as billionaire New York Jets owner Robert Wood "Woody" Johnson IV, all is revealed in this scrupulously researched, unauthorized biography by New York Times bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer. Often compared to the Kennedy clan because of the tragedies and scandals that had befallen both wealthy and powerful families, Crazy Rich, based on scores of exclusive, candid, on-the-record interviews, reveals how the dynasty's vast fortune was both intoxicating and toxic through the generations of a family that gave the world Band-Aids and Baby Oil. At the same time, they've been termed perhaps the most dysfunctional family in the fortune 500. Oppenheimer is the author of biographies of the Kennedys, the Clintons, the Hiltons and Martha Stewart, among other American icons.
