16. No Place Like Home    No Place Like Home.
There is often a gap between how we see ourselves and how we really are. You might come to the glum conclusion that the Jewish Community in Britain is hostile to the outside world and driven by discord on the inside. Yet, as Judah Passow shows, British-Jewish life hardly feels like that today. While once Jews whispered their identity, today they are much more out and proud. Though antisemitism is a continuing presence, it is not the connective issue that binds the British Jewish community together. This collection explores the shared values which shape the cultural and political identity of the Jewish community in modern Britain. There are many forms of Jewish life, including religious life, in these islands, and Judah Passow's photographs document this plurality and variety in its many forms, with an extraordinary level of artistry and human perception. The introduction is written by Jonathan Freedland, eminent author, broadcaster and long time Guardian journalist.

18. The Rape of Europa    The Rape of Europa.
`The Rape of Europa' is one of Titian's great masterpieces, a work charged with eroticism and classical mystique behind which lies a tale as compelling as the painting itself. Here Charles FitzRoy weaves a unique account of its history and the painting's movement following the rise and fall of the countries in which it has been housed. The story ranges from its place at the court of King Philip II of Spain, through French revolution and English intrigue, to its final move to America, engineered by the brilliant but devious art historian Bernard Berenson. This is the tale of how Titian's masterpiece has captivated kings, nobles, artists, and lovers alike for over four centuries since its conception and continues to do so today.

19. Don'ts for Cricketers    Don'ts for Cricketers.
Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives were republished by A&C Black in 2007 and have sold more than one million copies to date. The advice contained in Don'ts for Cricketers was originally printed in 1888 and 1906 and contains hundreds of snippets of entertaining, timeless and amusing advice for cricketers of all abilities. The advice, ranging from technique and equipment to etiquette on the field, provides an entertaining snapshot of life in early twentieth-century Britain. On batting mentality: 'Don't be in two minds about how you are going to play the ball, for that way madness lies.' On batting technique: 'Don't fail to keep the ball down in driving, for you run great risk of being caught. Of course, the high drive is an extremely pretty stroke.' On bowling mentality: 'Don't be sulky or sad if your bowling is punished or your captain takes you off bowling when you want to continue.' On bowling technique: 'Don't bend your elbow; it is not pleasant to be called for throwing when you are bowling in a match.' On fielding: 'Don't forget the old story of the famous cricketer who scored 125 for the Gentlemen of England, but dropped so many catches that at the end of the day he was adjudged to owe his side 95 runs!' On the essence of the game: 'Don't forget the motto of that famous old cricket club, I Zingari: Keep your promise, keep your temper, keep your wicket up.'

26. Getting the Little Blighters to Eat    Getting the Little Blighters to Eat.
Does your child decide they don't like a food before they've even tried it? Do they say 'Yuk' to foods they used to eat happily? Would they live off chips and ice-cream and never touch a vegetable again if given the chance? Are mealtimes driving you nuts? It's easy to think that children are naturally just fussy eaters. Yet, without realizing it, we are actually creating many of the problems ourselves with the things we do and say to our children around food. The right thing to do isn't always as obvious or as instinctive as you might think. Common habits like using pudding as a reward for eating the main course, or pestering them to eat their vegetables, actually encourage - not discourage - fussy eating! This little book tells you how to start again. It won't give you complicated child-friendly recipes or clever ways to sneak vegetables into meals - just easy-to-follow, easy-to-remember rules to help re-programme your child into a happy, healthy, adventurous eater. Recommended by a leading NHS Specialist Paediatric Dietician.

29. Tales of Remarkable Birds    Tales of Remarkable Birds.
Throughout the bird world, examples of strange and seemingly inexplicable behaviours abound. For example: Why do Male Fairywrens bring flowers to females as a nuptial gift in the pre-dawn darkness? Especially when the gift-givers are not the official mates of the females concerned, but visitors, and furthermore they may give these gifts in full view of the official mate. Why do gangs of White-winged Choughs 'kidnap' their neighbours' fledglings and then keep them in their 'gang'. Which bird is so big, strong and fierce that stories abound of it killing humans? This book looks at accounts of murderous Cassowaries and explains just what might have happened. What happens in an albatross 'divorce'? This book divides the world by continent and takes a series of extraordinary stories from each to illustrate a great diversity of bird behaviour. Each continent will have around five or six stories, each described in 1500 to 2000 words and examining the truths and the mythology behind each example. An intriguiguing book from an author with an ability to engage with his audience.
