The BBC satirical sitcom "Yes Minister" was not only one of the most successful and fondly remembered television comedies of the 1980s, it was also a slyly radical critique of the politics of its day. At a time when Thatcherite ideas were challenging vested interests in government, industry and society, the depiction of the hapless and self-deluding minister, Jim Hacker, and the wily civil servant, Sir Humphrey, seemed, to many, to sum up an Establishment out for little more than its own gain. Now, acclaimed entertainment historian Graham McCann goes behind the scenes to reveal the curious origins of Margaret Thatcher's favourite television show.

This volume offers an empirical and diachronic investigation of the foundations and nature of metaphor in English. Metaphor is one of the hot topics in present-day linguistics, with a huge range of research focusing on the systematic connections between different concepts such as heat and anger (fuming, inflamed), sight and understanding (clear, see), or bodies and landscape (hill-foot, river-mouth). Until recently, the lack of a comprehensive data source made it difficult to obtain an overview of this phenomenon in any language, but this changed with the completion in 2009 of The Historical Thesaurus of English, the only historical thesaurus ever produced for any language. Chapters in this volume use this unique resource as a basis for case studies of semantic domains including Animals, Colour, Death, Fear, Food, Reading, and Theft, providing a significant step forward in the data-driven understanding of metaphor.

Little attention has been paid to the murky, ultra-business of gathering intelligence among and forming estimates about friendly powers, and friendly or allied military forces. How rarely have scholars troubled to discover when states entered into coalitions or alliances mainly and explicitly because their intelligence evaluation of the potential partner concluded that making the alliance was, from the originator's national security interest, the best game in town. The twentieth century has been chosen to enhance the coherence of and connections between, the subject matter of this under-explored part of intelligence studies.
