    A Chasm In Time: Scottish War Art And Artists In The Twentieth Century
    Patricia R. Andrew - Hardback - Birlinn
    Patricia R. Andrew examines Scottish artists and their experience of war, and the ways in which they recorded and interpreted Scotland at war.

    The Complete Peanuts 1979-1980
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    This volume of 'The Complete Peanuts' features the long, surprisingly dramatic sequence in which a grievously ill Charlie Brown checks himself into a hospital while his friends worry. But the rest of the stories in this, the final volume from the 1970s, are far less sombre, as Snoopy launches his 'bird scout' treks, Peppermint Patty gets leaked on at school and sues - plus one of the great forgotten romances in Peanuts history!
  • Cover scan of The Complete Peanuts 1981-1982
    The Complete Peanuts 1981-1982
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    'The Complete Peanuts' marches into the 1980s as Snoopy's brother Spike is drafted into the Infantry and a second brother, 'Marbles', takes his bow. Also in this volume, Peppermint Patty witnesses the 'butterfly miracle', Sally gets fat, Charlie Brown's team loses its baseball field, Linus is still not Sally's 'Sweet Babboo', more Beagle Scout adventures with Snoopy, and Molly Volley and 'Crybaby' Boobie return for a rematch.
  • Cover scan of The Complete Peanuts 1983-1984
    The Complete Peanuts 1983-1984
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    This volume of 'The Complete Peanuts' is particularly romance-heavy as the Charlie Brown/Peppermint Patty/Marcie triangle heats up; love blossoms between two of the 'Beagle Scout' birds; and Linus is still not Sally's 'Sweet Babboo'! Meanwhile, Charlie Brown becomes, in his worst baseball-related humiliation to date, a Pelican - and Snoopy's brother Spike is still stuck in Needles, surrounded by coyotes, with a cactus as his only friend.
  • Cover scan of The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986
    The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    'The Complete Peanuts' reaches the go-go mid-1980s with this volume: 'mallies', 'punkers' (Snoopy with a mohawk!), killer bees, and Halley's Comet. The gang go to 'rain camp' and 'survival camp', the World War I Flying Ace comes down with the flu, Charlie Brown poses for a swimsuit calendar, Peppermint Patty gets a crabby tutor plus Molly Volley, the unbearable, licensable 'Tapioca Pudding', and plenty of Spike and his cactus!
  • Cover scan of Depart D'Ecosse
    Depart D'Ecosse
    Douglas Anderson - Hardback - Argyll
    Since its inception, the traditional Monte Carlo Rally format has changed little: crews set off from iconic European venues in the middle of winter to drive almost non-stop to the tiny principality. After arriving in France, the crews then continue over the snow and ice-bound roads of the Alps, then down into the warmth and sunshine of Monte Carlo. As if this test was not enough, most of it is against the clock. 'DeĢpart d'Ecosse' captures in words and images the excitement, drama and colour of this world famous event from its Scottish grand depart to the conclusion in Monte Carlo itself.

    Educating For Insurgency: The Roles Of Young People In Schools Of Poverty
    Jay Gillen - Paperback - AK Press
    All children have a right to a decent education. This belief is paramount to the Algebra Project - an education organisation founded by celebrated activist Bob Moses aimed at delivering maths literacy to youth of colour - whose aims and practices are outlined in this book. Based on his work with this organisation, author Jay Gillen outlines the tools needed to build social, cognitive, and political power in educational settings. He outlines a youth-based educational theory and discusses racial equality issues posed by the de facto segregation of many UK schools.
