    The Lost Railways Of Essex
    Neil Burgess - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    In the popular imagination Essex is associated with the urban and industrial strip of land reaching out from east London along the north bank of the Thames, a place of car factories, oil refineries, warehouses and commuter housing, but Essex is also a county with rolling countryside, small villages and picturesque towns. Although the railway netowrk in Essex has fared better than elsewhere the losses are shown here, together with dates and vital statistics, and include Ongar, Tiptree, Thorington, Canning Town, Halstead, Saffron Walden, Takely, Felstead, Earls Colne and many others.

    The Lost Railways Of Yorkshire's West Riding
    Neil Burgess - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    This area of Yorkshire's West Riding was one of the parts of Britain most affected by the Industrial Revolution and its major towns are still synonymous with manufacturing, mining and the textile industry. The area was densely populated so demand for freight and passenger railway services was immense, resulting in many lines. The network has been cut back hugely in the years since the end of steam, but the glory days are recalled in this book which features 135 period photographs.

    Lost Dundee In Colour
    Brian King - Paperback - Amberley
    Dundee suffered more than most at the hands of developers in the 1960s and 1970s. Much of the city, the fourth largest in Scotland with a population of around 150,000, was changed in the name of development. Today, the city continues to change, as a multimillion-pound master plan to regenerate and reconnect the waterfront with the city centre is expected to be completed in a 30-year period, including the development of a new Victoria and Albert Museum. This fascinating compilation of early Dundee postcards, photographs and lantern and glass slides takes the reader on a tour of one of Scotland's most established cities.

    Landscapes Of Protest In The Scottish Highlands After 1914: The Later Highland Land Wars
    Iain J. M. Robertson - Hardback - Ashgate
    In November 1918, the implementation of agrarian change in the Scottish Highlands threatened another wave of unemployment and eviction for the land-working population, which led to widespread and varied social protest. Those who had been away on war service (and their families) faced returning to exactly the same social and economic conditions in the Scottish Highlands they had hoped they had left behind in the struggle to make 'a land fit for heroes'. Widespread and varied social protest rapidly followed. It argues that, previously, there has been a failure to capture fully the geography, chronology typology and rate of occurrence of these events.
