    The Vogue For Russia: Modernism And The Unseen In Britain, 1900-1930
    Caroline Maclean - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    How did the British fascination with Russian arts, politics, and society at the start of the 20th century lead to a renewed interest in mysticism? How did ideas of Russianness and 'the Russian soul', prompted by the arrival in Britain of the Ballets Russes and the rise of revolutionary ideals, attach themselves to the existing British fashion for theosophy, vitalism, and occultism? In answering these questions, this study explores the overlap between Slavophilia and mysticism in Britain during a time of phenomenal social, political, and cultural change.

    The British Nationality Test: How British Are You?
    Cameron McPhail - Paperback - Black & White Publishing
    The deadpan but hilarious 'British Nationality Test' marks a truly new direction for the genre and is well removed from those insipid and often rather base joke books. Fast forward to the time when global warming has kicked in and Britain has been transformed into a Mediterranean paradise. Faced with waves of immigration, the government is forced to bring in a challenging nationalality test in an attempt to stem the human tide of aspiring citizens. The twist is that this is a test with a difference. Out goes Latin and biology and in comes the likes of gender studies and sports studies, with hilarious results.
