The story of Uwe Johnson, one of Germany's greatest and most-influential post-war writers, and how he came to live and work in Sheerness, Kent in the 1970s. Towards the end of 1974, a stranger arrived in the small town of Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. He could often be found sitting at the bar in the Napier Tavern, drinking lager and smoking Gauloises while flicking through the pages of the Kent Evening Post. "Charles" was the name he offered to his new acquaintances. But this unexpected immigrant was actually Uwe Johnson, originally from the Baltic province of Mecklenburg in the GDR, and already famous as the leading author of a divided Germany. What caused him to abandon West Berlin and spend the last nine years of his life in Sheerness, where he eventually completed his great New York novel Anniversaries in a house overlooking the outer reaches of the Thames Estuary? And what did he mean by detecting a "moral utopia" in a town that others, including his concerned friends, saw only as a busted slum on an island abandoned to "deindustrialisation" and a stranded Liberty ship full of unexploded bombs? Patrick Wright, who himself abandoned north Kent for Canada a few months before Johnson arrived, returns to the "island that is all the world" to uncover the story of the East German author's English decade, and to understand why his closely observed Kentish writings continue to speak with such clairvoyance in the age of Brexit. Guided in his encounters and researches by clues left by Johnson in his own "island stories", the book is set in the 1970s, when North Sea oil and joining the European Economic Community seemed the last hope for bankrupt Britain. It opens out to provide an alternative version of modern British history: a history for the present, told through the rich and haunted landscapes of an often spurned downriver mudbank, with a brilliant German answer to Robinson Crusoe as its primary witness.

"Women's History Sources: A Guide to Archives and Manuscript Collections in the United States" is a brilliant 2-volume survey of historical archives which proves the abundance of sources on the female past. Culled from a potential source list of 11,000 repositories, the editor and her associates surveyed the 7,000 replies to their initial questionnaire and identified 2,000 repositories with pertinent collections. The guide offers a state-by-state survey of holdings pertaining to women in a great variety of archives, ranging from large and well-known repositories, and state, county, and local historical societies, to organizational and labor union archives as well as those of educational, religious, and charitable institutions. It is meticulously arranged and was carefully verified. Thousands of entries, which identify hitherto unknown women, provide invaluable biographical sketches, which were checked against a 25,000-name authority file created from the standard biographical guides. The guide is not only an immediately useful reference work, but it is also a compendium of the lives, activities, and experiences of American women. The highly professional Index (vol. 2) is a fine topic guide to every aspect of U.S. social history. It not only enables the researcher to identify thousands of women, state by state and city by city, but it also leads one to the organizations and institutions with which these women were connected. The archives of this nation contain unmined treasures of information on women in their public and private roles-active, organizing, innovating to meet society's unmet needs. The Women's History Sources guide will be an indispensable tool for the scholar, the teacher, the genealogist, and for all those interested in recovering the hidden past of women. -- Gerda Lerner, University of Wisconsin--Madison.

For centuries, blindfold chess—the art of playing without sight of the board or pieces—has produced some of the greatest feats of human memory, progressing to the extent that the world record in 2009 was 45 [and is now 46] simultaneous blindfold games. This work describes the personalities and achievements of some of blindfold chess’s greatest players—including Philidor, Morphy, Blackburne, Zukertort, Pillsbury, Reti, Alekhine, Koltanowski, Najdorf and Fine, as well as present-day grandmasters such as Anand and Kramnik. Including some never before published, 444 games scores are presented, peppered with diagrams and annotations. Hints for playing blindfold, and its practical value, are also included.

Over a 60-year career, Graham Greene was a prolific writer.

The book details archival holdings of unpublished novels, short stories, plays, film scripts, journals, poetry, fragments of writing, and letters, as well as manuscripts and typescripts of published works. Analysing and contextualising the unpublished work, the book is fully cross-referenced throughout and includes a substantial index as well as practical guidance for students, scholars and researchers on accessing and making the most of each of the archives.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 4 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
