Two brands with an established pedigree were brought together in 1945 to form Standard-Triumph International by Sir John Black, then chairman of the Standard Motor Company. The inspired use of the Triumph brand, initially on a conventionally designed saloon, and then on a world beating range of sports cars that immediately gained success in competition, created a strong desire for the brand among enthusiastic motorists who appreciated its style and engineering. Changing use of language led to the Standard brand being discontinued with all models subsequently sold as Triumphs. Triumph & Standard Cars 1945 to 1984 looks at every model produced by the company from 1945 until the end of production in 1984 with the Triumph Acclaim, a car sometimes derided by purists, but the car that paved the way for co-operation between the remains of the former British Leyland behemoth and Honda of Japan. Each model is fully illustrated and described with comprehensive technical detail.

A lively and provocative account of the arts in Britain, Building Jerusalem suggests that even after fifty years of state planning of Britain's "leisure industries" the country is nevertheless approaching the millennium in a state of cultural confusion. Drawing on a wealth of historical material from Scotland, Wales, and English provincial towns, as well as the more familiar London story, Pick and Anderton contend that the original meaning of cultural language has been distorted by the fashionable phrase-making of modern government agencies, and by the inaccurate and misleading view of cultural history that is constantly presented to the public. The authors unfold fascinating stories of Britain's cultural past, before state support of the arts. They vividly relate the great changes wrought by the industrial revolution and by the development of the twentieth century media and describe the long history of Church and Royal support for the arts, as well as the long periods when all of the arts
