#1 New York Times bestselling author Arthur Hailey takes readers into the highest echelons of government as two nations’ leaders prepare for a third world war A call from the US president to Canada’s prime minister . . . An intimate reception at the Ottawa residence of Her Majesty’s governor general . . . The arrival of a ship in Vancouver. Three seemingly unrelated events three thousand miles apart upset the balance of global power and alter the landscape of the free world. As Canada’s prime minister, James Howden, works to ensure his nation’s survival in a nuclear war, he faces another threat: a lawyer on a crusade for justice and truth. With two nations struggling to keep a lid on an explosive secret, Howden will undergo a crisis of conscience that leaves him fighting for his political life. At once an electrifying novel of international politics during the Cold War and a cautionary tale about what can happen when men believe they are above the law, In High Places is Arthur Hailey’s personal favorite of all his works.

This book presents the results of two field seasons that the Italian Mission to Oman spent excavating a few tombs located on top of Jabal Salut in Central Oman. A cluster of these tombs was later razed and replaced by a small, rectangular pillared shrine built in stone and mortar that represents a unicum for the whole South East Arabia. The funerary monuments can be dated to the third and second millennium BC (Early to Middle Bronze Age), with evidence for reuse during the first millennium BC (local Iron Age). The small shrine is also datable to the Iron Age. In addition to architectural details, the excavations produced an abundance of pottery and soft stone vessels, which provide important dating information and enable the use of the tombs to be considered alongside evidence obtained from the excavation of nearby Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements. As well as showing the results from the excavations and placing them in a local context, it will be discussed how typical the results obtained from Jabal Salut might be for the rest of South East Arabia. In particular, it is tempting to consider what importance the region's ancient inhabitants gave to high places.

In his own words Dougal Haston covers the years from his childhood in Scotland, where his love of climbing was first sparked, through to his development into perhaps the most formidable climber of his generation; his reputation was forged by his successful ascents of familiar peaks by unfamiliar routes (of which the most famous was the Eiger Direct). Infused throughout with his passion for climbing and his great determination to succeed, In High Places is a compelling and eye-opening portrait of the climber as a young man and a must read for all those with an interest in mountaineering.

Winner of the International Dylan Thomas Prize 2017 'The judges recognised the mastery of form which is present in Fiona McFarlane's unforgettable collection of stunning short stories . . . highly varied in tone and brought the reader to characters, situations and places which were haunting in their oddity and moving in their human empathy.' Chair of judges of International Dylan Thomas Prize 2017, Professor Dai Smith CBE By the author of The Night Guest, a collection of fourteen scintillating short stories: surprising, wise, thought-provoking and superbly wrought. Ranging in setting from Australia to Greece, England to a Pacific island, they focus on people: their hopes, fears, dreams and disappointments, and their relationships - between ill-matched friends, daughters and mothers, fathers and sons, married couples and sisters. Some are eccentric, like the widower who believes his dead wife's mechanical parrot speaks to him, or the research scientist convinced that Charles Darwin visits him on his remote island; others delude themselves, like the mistress of a married man who thinks she's freer than her married sister. All are confronted with events that make them see themselves and their lives from a fresh perspective. It is what they do as a result that is as unpredictable as life itself.
