Woking is a mixture of the very old and very new. What is now known as 'Old Woking' was mentioned in the Domesday Book but it now forms a suburb of Woking. The modern town grew up around the Basingstoke Canal and the railways that arrived in the nineteenth century, including a line from London to Brookwood cemetery built by the London Necropolis Company to accommodate the city's dead. Today Woking is one of the largest towns in Surrey and is known among other things as the landing place for the aliens in H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds, the country's oldest mosque (the Shah Jahan), McLaren Racing, the innovative Lightbox art and heritage centre built by the architects of the London Eye and the home town of the The Jam. A-Z of Woking delves into the history of this fascinating town, revealing interesting and significant moments in the story of Woking. It highlights well-known landmarks, famous residents and digs beneath the surface to uncover some of the lesser-known facts about Woking and its hidden gems. This A-Z tour of Woking's history is fully illustrated and will appeal to all those with an interest in this town in Surrey.

Also featuring a Select Bibliography and full Chronology to aid learning, this wide-ranging, clear and authoritative text is an essential reference for students, scholars and anyone with an interest in British America.

Unlike all previously published southern African bird guides, this new edition will be scattered with informative photographs that are incorporated in the text pages and each plate illustration is augmented with an introduction. Apart from the approximately 240 plate spreads, the guide also has 12 photographic and illustrated double spreads that show head enlargements and other details. Plates are annotated far more definitively than other guides – highlighting key identification features, especially for difficult-to-identify species.
