The World of Paperbachs


New releases from PIMLICO cover a wide range of subjects. In history there is a reprint of Christopher Hill's Puritanism and Revolution: Studies in Interpretation of the English Revolution of the 17th Century ([pound]l2.50). When first published in 1958 this was a major new analysis of the Civil Wars and it is good to have it in print once again. Another history title in which biography is mixed with analysis is the late Sir Isaiah Berlin's The Power of Ideas ([pound]12.50). This collection of essays has been edited by Henry Hardy. In biography, Pimlico has brought out an edition of John Campbell's highly praised Margaret Thatcher. Volume One: The Grocer's Daughter ([pound]9.99). Other new titles include Michael Davie's Anglo-Australian Attitudes ([pound]12.50), which looks at the 'love-hate relationship' between Australia and the Mother Country, and, finally, Bruno Bettelheim's Freud and Man's Soul ([pound]9.00) which remains one of the most significant studies of Freud ever written.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS has published a paperback edition of Sheila Fitzpatrick's Everyday Stalinism. Ordinary Life in Extraordinary Times: Soviet Russia in the 1930s ([pound]8.99) and two literary titles. The first of these is Stephen Gill's Wordsworth and the Victorians ([pound]16.99) which describes and analyses the reception given to Wordsworth by his fellow Victorians. The second is Lucy Newlyn's Paradise Lost and the Romantic Reader ([pound]15.99), first published in 1993. In this the author examines the unique influence of Milton's epic poem on Romantic writers.

METHUEN has reprinted the Rev. William Taylor's This Bright Field: A Travel Book in One Place ([pound]8.99) in which the young clergyman combines autobiography with a description of life in London's East End.

PAPERMAC has brought out two biographical titles. The first is Alistair Horne's edition of Telling Lives: From W. B. Yeats to Bruce Chatwin ([pound]l2.99), the collection of biographical essays first published last year. The second is R. A. C. Parker's Churchill and Appeasement ([pound]l2.99), which appeared last year in hardback to considerable praise.

PAN, another imprint from Macmillan, has republished Tom Clancy's Every Man a Tiger ([pound]7.99), first published by Putnam in the U.S. in 1999. The book was written in conjunction with General 'Chuck' Homer who commanded the Allied air-forces during 'Desert Storm'. Clancy does not only tell the story of the Gulf War against Saddam Hussein, but describes how the American military recovered from the tragedy of Viet Nam.

Literary titles dominate new releases from VINTAGE CLASSICS with three new reprints in the firm's publication of Graham Green's fiction: The Man Within, A Burnt-out Case and A Gun for Sale, all priced at [pound]6.99. In addition there is a new edition of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf ([pound]6.
