Leeds is the UK's third largest city and is home to a community rich in history, ambition and achievement. As the financial, cultural and commercial heart of West Yorkshire, Leeds is a city essential to the global economic system. Although only a small borough for much of its existence, in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries Leeds became a key centre for the production and trading of wool. As the Industrial Revolution progressed, Leeds developed into a major industrial hub, extending its reach into engineering, printing, commerce, health and education. Iron foundries were among other industries of extreme importance. The city then expanded, absorbing many of the surrounding villages and townships to become the urban centre we see today. Secret Leeds is a historical journey through this rapidly changing city, unearthing nuggets of its early history and spectacular development into the 'Capital of the North'. The book reveals and unravels scores of fascinating and little-known details about Leeds that will intrigue and inform its many visitors as well as its current inhabitants, many of whom probably thought they knew it all.

Against the Jews and the Gentiles - Books I?IV (Hardcover): Giannozzo Manetti Against the Jews and the Gentiles - Books I?IV (Hardcover)
Giannozzo Manetti; Edited by Stefano U. Baldassarri, Daniela Pagliara; Translated by David Marsh
R679 R553 Discovery Miles 5 530 Save R126 (19%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Giannozzo Manetti (1396-1459) was a celebrated humanist orator, historian, philosopher, and scholar of the early Renaissance. Son of a wealthy Florentine merchant, he participated actively in the public life of the Florentine republic and embraced the new humanist scholarship of the quattrocento, oriented to the service of the state and the reform of religion. Mastering not only classical Latin but also Greek and Hebrew, he gained access to a whole library of sources previously unknown in the Latin West. Among the fruits of his studies is his treatise Against the Jews and the Gentiles, an apologia for Christianity in ten books that redefines religion in terms of "true piety," and relates the historical development of the pagan and Jewish religions to the life of Jesus. The present volume includes the first critical edition of Books I-IV, together with the first translation of those books into any modern language.

An introduction to one of the premier humanists of the Italian Renaissance, whose extraordinary work in biography, politics, religion, and philosophy has been largely unknown to Anglophone readers. A celebrated orator, historian, philosopher, and statesman, Giannozzo Manetti (1396-1459) was one of the most remarkable figures of the Italian Renaissance. The son of a wealthy Florentine merchant, he was active in the public life of the Florentine republic and embraced the new humanist scholarship of the Quattrocento. Among his many contributions, Manetti translated from classical Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, bringing attention to great works of the ancient world that were previously unknown. He also offered a humanist alternative to the Vulgate Bible by translating into Latin the Greek text of the New Testament and the Hebrew Psalms. His other works included biographies of Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio; A Translator's Defense, an indispensable treatise on the art of translation; and Against the Jews and the Gentiles, an apologia for Christianity. Manetti is most remembered for his treatise On Human Worth and Excellence, a radical defense of human nature and of the new world view of Renaissance humanism. In this authoritative biography, the first ever in English, David Marsh guides readers through the vast range of Manetti's writings, which, despite growing scholarly interest, are still largely unfamiliar to the English-speaking world. Marsh's fresh appraisal makes clear why Manetti must be considered among the great expositors of the spirit of his age.

The Euro - The Battle for the New Global Currency (Paperback, Revised edition): David Marsh The Euro - The Battle for the New Global Currency (Paperback, Revised edition)

R377 Discovery Miles 3 770 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

On the tenth anniversary of the Euro, a look at its tumultuous history-and its future prospects This book is the first comprehensive political and economic account of the birth and development of the Euro. Today the Euro is the supranational currency for sixteen European countries and the world's second-largest reserve currency. David Marsh tells the story of the rivalries, intrigues, and deal making that brought about a currency for Europe, and he analyzes the achievements and shortcomings of its first decade of existence. While the Euro represents a remarkable triumph of political will, great pressures are building on the single currency. Drawing on more than 100 interviews with leading figures associated with the Euro, and scores of secret documents from international archives, Marsh underscores the Euro's importance for the global economy, in particular for U.S. and British economic and political agendas. Hidden facts and fresh insights from The Euro: How the legacy of France and Germany's tortuous relations affects the Euro Why the United Kingdom is unlikely to accept the Euro before 2025 The impact on the Euro of the U.S. credit crisis How the Euro has rebounded against the aspirations of its founders How Italy and Spain have massively lost competitiveness Why radical changes must be adopted to prevent a European upheaval

Studies on Alberti and Petrarch (Hardcover, New Ed): David Marsh Studies on Alberti and Petrarch (Hardcover, New Ed)
David Marsh
R3,096 Discovery Miles 30 960 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472) was the most versatile humanist of the fifteenth century: author of numerous compositions in both Latin and Italian, and a groundbreaking theorist of painting, sculpture, and architecture. His Latin writings owe much to the model of Petrarch (1304-1374), the famed poet of the Italian Canzoniere, but also a prolific author of Latin epistles, biographies, and poems that sparked the revival of classical culture in the early Italian Renaissance. The essays collected here reflect some thirty years of research into these pioneers of Humanism, and offer important insights into forms of Renaissance 'self-fashioning' such as allegory and autobiography.

New Science (Paperback, Reissued 3rd Ed): Giambattista Vico New Science (Paperback, Reissued 3rd Ed)
Giambattista Vico; Introduction by Anthony Grafton; Translated by David Marsh
R371 R304 Discovery Miles 3 040 Save R67 (18%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Although Vico (1668-1744) lived his whole life as an obscure academic in Naples, his New Science is an astonishingly ambitious attempt to decode the history, mythology and law of the ancient world.

It argues that the key to true understanding lies in accepting that the customs and emotional lives of the Greeks and Romans, Egyptians, Jews and Babylonians, were utterly different from our own. In examining these huge themes, Vico offers countless fresh insights into topics ranging from physics to (poetic) politics, money to monsters, and family structures to the Flood. Deeply influential since the dawn of Romanticism, the New Science even inspired the framework for Joyce’s Ulysses. This powerful new translation makes it clear why it marked a turning point in humanist thinking as significant as Newton’s contemporary revolution in physics.

Invectives (Hardcover): Francesco Petrarca Invectives (Hardcover)
Francesco Petrarca; Translated by David Marsh
R576 R506 Discovery Miles 5 060 Save R70 (12%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374), one of the greatest of Italian poets, was also the leading spirit in the Renaissance movement to revive ancient Roman language and literature. Just as Petrarch's Latin epic "Africa" imitated Virgil and his compendium "On Illustrious Men" was inspired by Livy, so Petrarch's four "Invectives" were intended to revive the eloquence of the great Roman orator Cicero. The "Invectives" are directed against the cultural idols of the Middle Ages--against scholastic philosophy and medicine and the dominance of French culture in general. They defend the value of literary culture against obscurantism and provide a clear statement of the values of Renaissance humanism. This volume provides a new critical edition of the Latin text based on the two autograph copies, and the first English translation of three of the four invectives.

For Who the Bell Tolls - The Essential and Entertaining Guide to Grammar (Paperback, Main): David Marsh For Who the Bell Tolls - The Essential and Entertaining Guide to Grammar (Paperback, Main)
David Marsh 1
R255 R209 Discovery Miles 2 090 Save R46 (18%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

For Who the Bell Tolls is a book that explains the grammar that people really need to know, such as the fact that an apostrophe is the difference between a company that knows its s*** and a company that knows it's s***, or the importance of capital letters to avoid ambiguity in such sentences as 'I helped my Uncle Jack off his horse.' David Marsh's lifelong mission has been to create order out of chaos. For four decades, he has worked for newspapers, from the Sun to the Financial Times, from local weeklies that sold a few thousand copies to the Guardian, with its global readership of nine million, turning the sow's ear of rough-and-ready reportage into a passable imitation of a silk purse. The chaos might be sloppy syntax, a disregard for grammar or a fundamental misunderstanding of what grammar is. It could be an adherence to 'rules' that have no real basis and get in the way of fluent, unambiguous communication at the expense of ones that are actually useful. Clear, honest use of English has many enemies: politicians, business and marketing people, local authority and civil service jargonauts, rail companies, estate agents, academics . . . and some journalists. This is the book to help defeat them. 'A splendid and, more importantly, sane book on English grammar.' Mark Forsyth, author of The Etymologicon

Policy is not made in the electoral arena or in the gladiatorial confrontations of Parliament, but in the netherworld of committees, civil servants, professions, and interest groups. This collection explores the private world of public policy. It provides a survey of the literature on the concept of policy networks and demonstrates its importance for understanding specific policy areas. The case studies cover policy-making in agriculture, civil nuclear power, youth employment, smoking, heart disease, sea defences, information technology, and exchange rate policy. Finally the editors attempt an overall assessment of the utility of the concept, focusing on such questions as why networks change, which interests dominate and benefit from networks, and the consequences of the present system for representative democracy. To describe policy networks is not to condone political oligopoly. Britain has witnessed the substitution of private government for public accountability. The analysis of policy networks draws attention to this erosion of representative democracy and exposes the private government of Britain to public gaze.
