When Christopher Ross put on a hi-visibility vest and joined London Underground as a station assistant, he discovered a Plato's cave of reflection and human comedy, populated by streakers, buskers, onanists and angry commuters. A meditation on life, a philosophical enquiry into human nature and a profoundly funny dissection of urban madness. Christopher Ross, philosopher and traveller, decided to cease his journeyings and go underground, working for a year as a station assistant on Platform 6 (northbound Victoria Line) at Oxford Circus. After training school, where he is taught how not to electrocute himself and always to look a member of the public in the eye as they are assaulting you, he faces up to his new duties with a mixture of curiosity and foreboding. `Tunnel Visions' is a delightful mixture of lived experience in the sureal world of London's Underground and the more elevated ideas, thoughts and imaginings that experience provokes. Oxford Circus station, complete with its weeping wall, its streakers, buskers, onanists and cupboard containing one employee whose ideal working day was to sleep soundly 100 feet below ground, is a Plato's Cave of reflection and human comedy. Christopher Ross, a still point in the whirling stream of the bizarre and otherworldly life below ground, has written a profoundly funny book.

He is Risen. Rhapsodic, incantatory, and playful. A mish-mash of history; both real and imagined. An epic poem starring yoga aficionado George "Warshington" who turns both inward and towards a cast of characters who inspire his vision of leadership during the crucial year of 1776-77 in Valley of the Forge: his loyal, loving, and patient wife, Martha; the recovering, lovelorn, drunkard, "Mad" Anthony Wayne; his fellow yogi and personal assistant, Gibraltar and his wife, Rebekah; the mercurial turncoat, General Toothe; the alluring semi-widow, Mary Hughes Cooney; the gifted sculptor Joe and his muse, Felicia; the magical woods-witch, Miss Kitty, and, finally, local Indian Chief Maddywampus; the true spiritual centerpiece for the newly won territory of "America."

On November 25, 1970, the world renowned Japanese writer Yukio Mishima committed "seppuku" with his own antique sword. Mishima's spectacular suicide has been called many things: a hankering for heroism; a beautiful, perverse drama; a political protest against Japan's emasculated postwar constitution; the epitaph of a mad genius. Part travelogue, part biography, and part philosophical treatise, "Mishima's Sword" is the story of Christopher Ross's journey to find a sword and maybe an understanding of Mishima's country. The cold trail the author follows inspires a tale of the most engaging-and occasionally bizarre-sort, with glimpses of the real Japan that is not seen by tourists, with digressions on, among other things, bushido and socks, mutineers and Noh ghosts, nosebleeds and metallurgy-and even how to dress for suicide.

Spain since 1812 is an ideal introduction to the history of Spain. The chapters are arranged chronologically and each begins with an overview of major events and movements in Europe as a whole. Emphasis is placed on understanding major developments, their causes, and the relationships between them. Spanish terms associated with key concepts and figures are introduced and explained throughout the text. Extracts from key Spanish texts, in Spanish and in translation, enable students to see, first hand, the mood of the time. Chapters end with topics for discussion to encourage critical thinking. This new edition has been revised and updated to take account of events since the Socialists' return to power in 2004. It looks at the new government's social reforms, its attempts to end ETA's violence and its response to Catalan demands for further autonomy. Also considered are changes in the country's political climate and external relationships, as well as the crisis facing Spain's economy. Written in an accessible style and assuming no prior knowledge, the books in this series address the specific needs of students on language courses, as well as anyone with an interest in modern history. Approaching the study of history via contemporary politics and society, each book offers a clear historical narrative and sets the country or region concerned in the context of the wider world.

The stunning new book from Christopher Ross, Sunday Times top 10 bestselling author of 'Tunnel Visions'. On 25 November 1970, after a failed coup d'etat, Japanese writer Yukio Mishima plunged a knife into his tightly muscled belly, and was decapitated using his own antique sword. Mishima's spectacular suicide has been called many things: a hankering for heroism; a beautiful, perverse drama; a political protest against Japan's emasculated post-War constitution; the last act in a theatre of death; the epitaph of a mad genius. But which, if any, is correct? And what happened to Mishima's sword? Thirty years later Christopher Ross sets off for Tokyo on a journey into the heart of the Mishima Incident. While searching for Mishima's sword and reassessing the life and anachronistic death of this uniquely complex man, he encounters those who knew Mishima, craftsmen and critics, soldiers and swordsmen, boyfriends and biographers -- even the man who taught him hara-kiri. The cold trail he follows inspires digressions on, amongst other things, bushido and socks, mutineers and Noh ghosts, nosebleeds and metallurgy -- and how to dress for suicide. Like his best-selling 'Tunnel Visions', Christopher Ross has written another unclassifiable blend of travel writing, autobiography and philosophical quest, an insider's mesmeric account of modern Japan and a death that still haunts the nation.

In 1970 Japan's most famous writer, Yukio Mishima, cut open his stomach and was then beheaded with his own antique sword. His anachronistic suicide has been called many things: a desperate heroic gesture; a work of art; a political protest; the antics of a madman. But which is correct? And what became of Mishima's sword? Thirty years later Christopher Ross sets out for Japan on the trail of those who might have answers: craftsmen and critics; soldiers and swordsmen; boyfriends and biographers; even the man who taught Mishima hara-kiri. Like his best-selling 'Tunnel Visions: Journeys of an Underground Philosopher', Christopher Ross has written another unclassifiable blend of travel writing, autobiography and philosophical enquiry to create a mesmeric account of modern Japan and the peculiar death that haunts it to this day.

Platform 6 at Oxford Circus is not an exciting place. Not very much happens there. Thousands of people pass along it every day, noticing nothing. Christopher Ross, philosopher and traveller, decidied it was ideal. The perfect place to watch people – and to think about their lives. But how could he remain a hidden observer? The answer was, he thought, quite simple: put on a hi-visibility vest and join the Underground as a humble Station Assistant. Once he had the required training – learning how to avoid being eletrocuted, and to look members of the public in the eye while they are assaulting you – he was ready. Then down he went.

Tunnel Visions is a delightful mixture of lived experience in the surreal subterrania of London's Underground and the more elevated ideas, thoughts and imaginings that experience provoked. Oxford Circus Station, complete with its weeping wall, its streakers, buskers, onanists and cupboard containing one employee whose ideal day is to sleep soundly 100 feet below ground, is a Plato's cave of reflection and human comedy. Christopher Ross provides a still point in the whriling stream of the bizarre and otherwordly life under London. He's a subversive of the subway, a witness to the urban madness of the Underground platorm, and has written a profoundly funny book.
