An A-Z of over 600 words and phrases from bestselling humour author Allan Morrison. Each term is explained and every example evokes some nostalgic memory of how things used to be when growing up in Scotland between the wars. Some of the terms have been out of use for a generation or more while some are still in use today. Take for example: Auntie Beeny - An old lady you knew who dressed in the style of long ago. Athol Brose - Sweet oatmeal dessert made with cream, honey and whisky. Back green/court - If you lived in a city tenement you probably played in the back court on a shared grassy or paved area. Sometimes called a backie. Baffle wall - Erected four feet away from the close mouths of tenements, just parallel with the pavement. It was a solid brick wall, some six feet high. six feet wide and two feet thick, designed to deflect a bomb blast from a close mouth in case people were sheltering there. Some baffle walls were constructed of corrugated iron sheets held together by a frame and filled with sand. Baikie - The square wooden bucket used to take out the ash from the domestic fire, and also bring coal into the house. Also used for feeding cattle and washing dishes! Baldy Bayne - The name you gave to someone who was bald. This book will have a strong gift appeal at Xmas in Scotland as an ideal family present for grandparents. Morrison's name and Besley's cartoons will only increase this titles appeal.

Millions of Americans have read and been galvanized by A People's History of the United States. But many years before Howard Zinn published that epic saga of exploitation and resistance, he was organizing civil-rights protests and agitating for an end to the Vietnam War--and writing about those efforts in the pages of The Nation. From the Atlanta campus of Spelman College (where Zinn taught in the early 1960s) to North Vietnam (where he facilitated the release of American POWs), Zinn was not only an astute observer of history. As Frances Fox Piven writes in the introduction to Some Truths Are Not Self-Evident, "These Nation essays remind us that for nearly fifty years Zinn himself was deeply involved in the major twentieth-century struggles for social justice in the United States." The book also includes later Zinn articles on George W. Bush's wars--on terror, in Iraq, against the poor--as well as a selection of Nation articles about Zinn, concluding with Eric Foner's 2010 obituary for the historian who "was not afraid to speak out about the difference between right and wrong." Nowhere has Zinn's courage and commitment to speaking out been as evident as in Some Truths Are Not Self Evident: Essays in The Nation on Civil Rights, Vietnam and the "War on Terror."
