A History of British Elections since 1689 represents a unique single-volume authoritative reference guide to British elections and electoral systems from the Glorious Revolution to the present day. The main focus is on general elections and associated by-elections, but Chris Cook and John Stevenson also cover national referenda, European parliament elections, municipal elections, and elections to the Welsh and Northern Irish assemblies and the Scottish parliament. The outcome and political significance of all these elections are looked at in detail, but the authors also discuss broader themes and debates in British electoral history, for example: the evolution of the electoral system, parliamentary reform, women's suffrage, constituency size and numbers, elimination of corrupt practices, and other important topics. The book also follows the fortunes not only of the major political parties but of fringe movements of the extreme right and left. Combining data, summary and analysis with thematic overviews and chronological outlines, this major new reference provides a definitive guide to the long and varied history of British elections and is essential reading for students of British political history.

Drawing on original empirical data with men who buy sex, this book takes a fresh look at the relationships clients have with female sex workers. The core questions that form the backbone of the research are not only the expected inquiry into 'why men buy sex', but also into the sociological and psychological processes that men encounter in order to enter an assumed 'deviant' sexual behaviour as part of their everyday lives. These sociological processes of finding, negotiating and buying sexual services are complicated by the stigma directed towards men who buy sex. Exactly how do men behave with sex workers; what are their relationships like; what emotions are involved and can intimacy be bought? Questioning the dichotomy made between commercial and non-commercial relationships, the data suggests that intimacy and commerce are compatible. Managing secrecy, stigma and the consumption of intimacy takes this book into some of the more challenging theoretical areas of masculinity and emotional consumption in contemporary society. Drawing some parallels from the author's earlier book Sex Work: A Risky Business, the book offers insights into why engagement in commercial sex is prolific as sexual culture is transformed in late modernity.

An unorthodox history of baseball told through the enthralling stories of the game's objects, equipment, and characters. No sport embraces its wild history quite like baseball, especially in memorabilia and objects. Sure, there are baseball cards and team pennants. But there are also huge balls, giant bats, peanuts, cracker jacks, eyeblack, and more, each with a backstory you have to read to believe. In The 34-Ton Bat, Sports Illustrated writer Steve Rushin tells the real, unvarnished story of baseball through the lens of all the things that make it the game that it is. Rushin weaves these rich stories -- from ballpark pipe organs played by malevolent organists to backed up toilets at Ebbets Field -- together in their order of importance (from most to least) for an entertaining and compulsive read, glowing with a deep passion for America's Pastime. The perfect holiday gift for casual fans and serious collectors alike, The 34-Ton Bat is a true heavy hitter.

"I have no time for lies and fantasy, and neither should you. Enjoy or die..." --John Lydon Punk has been romanticized and embalmed in various media. An English class revolt that became a worldwide fashion statement, punk's idols were the Sex Pistols, and its sneering hero was Johnny Rotten. Seventeen years later, John Lydon looks back at himself, the Sex Pistols, and the "no future" disaffection of the time. Much more than just a music book, Rotten is an oral history of punk: angry, witty, honest, poignant, crackling with energy. Malcolm McLaren, Sid Vicious, Chrissie Hynde, Billy Idol, London and England in the late 1970s, the Pistols' creation and collapse...all are here, in perhaps the best book ever written about music and youth culture, by one of its most notorious figures.

This murder mystery and psychological novel tells of the tangled lives and loves of powerful figures in 1970s post-Watergate Washington. Catherine Lafitte has made peace with her past and with her husband, Hamilton "Hap" Lafitte, the philandering, hard-drinking US Senator from Lake City, Florida. She has a big house in the country and a lover in town, and has pushed herself to the top level of Washington society. Arthur Bernardi, Catherine's lover and famous sculptor, lives in an old house that overlooks Rock Creek Park with his alcoholic musician friend Cal Canoun. At a raucous party featuring the music of 91-year-old jazz musician Benny King, we meet Harold Smith-Green, Catherine's former lover, known in the media as "The Shadow Tycoon", Niki, the beautiful spoiled brat from horse country, Chloe the scheming left-wing columnist, Abilene Dooley, Washington's favorite courtesan, and Buck Reston, psychiatrist to the rich and famous. Two days later their world is blown apart by the early morning discovery of two dead men in Rock Creek Park. Agents Richard Kuprovic and Joe Geraghty, the "Mutt & Jeff" of the FBI, conduct a frustrating murder investigation lightened by Kuprovic's bantering relationship with girlfriend Cass Alexander, society girl turned fashion photographer. Two mysterious poisoning deaths occur, a delightful May afternoon drive to Maryland's Eastern Shore ends tragically and streetwalker Willa Hodges tells a frightening story. The solution of the mystery, inadvertently given away but unnoticed in the middle of the book, is bizarre and completely unexpected.
