9 Addison, Paul Churchill on the home front 1900-1955
UK Jonathan Cape 1992 Hardcover Very Good Very Good 24cm 
ex-InterClyde lib - those library users must be among the most careful in the world as the book's in great order. 493pp, several photo sections & just over a kilo for posting. A masterly chronicle of Churchill as a domestic figure rather than as the bulldog wartime leader, and one of the most subtle portraits of him as a politician. Addison (History/Univ. of Edinburgh, Scotland) revises the view of Churchill as uninterested and out of his depth in domestic affairs, painting instead a nuanced picture of a canny parliamentarian. Churchill changed parties twice but managed to accomplish the change, writes Addison, ""with exceptional dexterity,"" making it appear as if he were maintaining his principles while the parties changed theirs. Most impressively, Addison doesn't settle for easy classifications, admitting that ""Churchill...is a man of whom almost everything that can be said is true in part."" Innovative and thought-provoking. A tour de force. Well, what more can I say, sounds a great bio indeed.

11 Alder, Garry Beyond Bokhara, The Life of William Moorcroft, Asian Explorer and Pioneer Veterinary Surgeon 1767-1825
UK Century 1985 Hardcover Very Good-good Very Good/Good 23.5cm 
417pp, a kilo to post. ex-Wilmslow lib (Cheshire), usual indicators/tickets. In the India office library there is a letter addressed to w. moorcroft edq., samarkand or elsewhere'. It is a tribute to this astonishing man that letter reached him, 1,000 miles away across the mountains and deserts of central asia. Yet today few people have heard of him or of his pioneering achievements as a surgeon and explorer. this long overdue and fascinating biography at last gives moorcroft the recognition he deserves. According to Bill Buxton > "This is the only biography of William Moorcroft, one of the great early explorers of the region north west of India. He was a veterinarian who came to India in 1808 as Superintendent of East India Company's horses. He traveled widely, ostensibly in search of breeding stock, but this was clearly more of a pretext than fact. He undertook a journey into western Tibet in 1812, across the Garhwal Himalaya to Lake Manasarowar, Mount Kailas region, the Rakas Tal, and Gartok. Moorcroft and Hearsey were the first Englishmen in the area. "His next major trip was to Bokhara. He left British territory in 1820, for a trip that would last until 1825. Due to civil unrest in Afghanistan, he decided to go via Ladakh and Chinese Turkistan. He waited in Leh for permission from Kashgar, during which time he traveled and explored the greater part of Ladakh, the Karakoram Pass, the head-waters of the Yarkand River, the Western Himalaya, the Karakoram and the NW Frontier. In 1824, after deciding that permission would never come , he decided to go via Afghanistan, regardless of the civil conflict there. Traveled through Kashmir and Punjab, over the Khyber Pass, across the Oxus, and got to Bokhara. He died during the return trip."

19 Alexander, Stephanie A Cook's Life
Lantern (Penguin) 2012 Hardcover Excellent Very Good 24 Cm 
362pp, 2 photo sections, 800g to post. With the Cook's Companion front and centre in half a million kitchens, Stephanie Alexander is the very definition of a household name. Each day thousands turn to her 'food bible' for the most reliable recipes and advice. But before Stephanie Alexander penned a word for the emerging food media, let alone for the Cook's Companion, she had spent decades avidly documenting food experiences. Shaped by her mother's dedication to good food and her father's love of reading, she trained as a librarian and all the while observed, assessed and re-created the dishes she loved. Her monthly university allowance rarely lasted more than a week - all spent on pan-fried flounder and chestnut Mont Blanc. She was seduced over pain Poîlane while working as an au pair in Paris, and later over ackee and saltfish in London. In 1966, with no formal culinary training and a newborn baby, but brimming with confidence and sheer determination, she opened Jamaica House with her first husband. the personal toll was great and it was many years until she emerged on the restaurant scene again. Stephanie's Restaurant would become part of Melbourne food folklore, permanently raising the bar for restaurant dining in Australia. At the time of its opening, in 1976, a salad to most people meant iceberg lettuce, no-one had heard of goat's cheese and ginger came in a tin. Over the next twenty-one years, in her quest for the sort of produce she had enjoyed while living and travelling in Europe, Stephanie championed small local suppliers or grew it herself. Her indefatigable determination and single-minded vision have influenced - and sometimes intimidated - a generation of chefs, cooks and diners. and now her Kitchen Garden Foundation is inspiring tens of thousands of primary school children across Australia to grow and cook their own food. A Cook's Life is a very personal account of one woman's uncompromising commitment to good food, and of how it shaped her life and changed the eating habits of a nation.
