To Sir With Love

To Sir, with Love
by E. R. Braithwaite

When a woman refuses to sit next to him on the bus, Rick Braithewaite is saddened and angered by her prejudice. In post-war cosmopolitan London he had hoped for a more enlightened attitude. When he begins his first teaching job in a tough East End school the reactions are the same. Slowly and painfully some of the barriers are broken down. He shames his pupils, wrestles with them, enlightens them and eventually comes to love them. To Sir With Love is the story of a dedicated teacher who turns hate into love, teenage rebelliousness into self-respect, contempt into consideration for others – the story of a man’s own integrity winning through against all the odds.

To Sir, With Love
by E. R. Braithwaite

This schoolroom drama that inspired the classic Sydney Poitier film is “a microcosm of the racial issues . . . A dramatic picture of discrimination” (Kirkus Reviews).
With opportunities for black men limited in post–World War II London, Rick Braithwaite, a former Royal Air Force pilot and Cambridge-educated engineer, accepts a teaching position that puts him in charge of a class of angry, unmotivated, bigoted white teenagers whom the system has mostly abandoned. When his efforts to reach these troubled students are met with threats, suspicion, and derision, Braithwaite takes a radical new approach. He will treat his students as people poised to enter the adult world. He will teach them to respect themselves and to call him “Sir.” He will open up vistas before them that they never knew existed. And over the course of a remarkable year, he will touch the lives of his students in extraordinary ways, even as they in turn, unexpectedly and profoundly, touch his.
Based on actual events in the author’s life, To Sir, With Love is a powerfully moving story that celebrates courage, commitment, and vision, and is the inspiration for the classic film starring Sidney Poitier.

Honorary White
by E. R. Braithwaite

Acclaimed author E. R. Braithwaite (To Sir, With Love) chronicles the brutality, oppression, and courage he witnessed as a black man granted “Honorary White” status during a six-week visit to apartheid South Africa
As a black man living in a white-dominated world, author E. R. Braithwaite was painfully aware of the multitude of injustices suffered by people of color and he wrote powerfully and poignantly about racial discrimination in his acclaimed novels and nonfiction works. So it came as a complete surprise when, in 1973, the longstanding ban on his books was lifted by the South African government, a ruling body of minority whites that brutally oppressed the black majority through apartheid laws. Applying for a visa—and secretly hoping to be refused—he was granted the official status of “Honorary White” for the length of his stay. As such, Braithwaite would be afforded some of the freedoms that South Africa’s black population was denied, yet would nonetheless be considered inferior by the white establishment.
With Honorary White, Braithwaite bears witness to a dark and troubling time, relating with grave honesty and power the shocking abuses, inequities, and horrors he observed and experienced firsthand during his six-week stay in a criminal nation. His book is a personal testament to the savagery of apartheid and to the courage of those who refused to be broken by it.

To Sir Phillip, With Love
by Julia Quinn

Sir Phillip knew that Eloise Bridgerton was a spinster, and so he’d proposed, figuring that she’d be homely and unassuming, and more than a little desperate for an offer of marriage. Except . . . she wasn’t. The beautiful woman on his doorstep was anything but quiet, and when she stopped talking long enough to close her mouth, all he wanted to do was kiss her . . . and more.

Did he think she was mad? Eloise Bridgerton couldn’t marry a man she had never met! But then she started thinking . . . and wondering . . . and before she knew it, she was in a hired carriage in the middle of the night, on her way to meet the man she hoped might be her perfect match. Except . . . he wasn’t. Her perfect husband wouldn’t be so moody and ill-mannered, and while Phillip was certainly handsome, he was a large brute of a man, rough and rugged, and totally unlike the London gentlemen vying for her hand. But when he smiled . . . and when he kissed her . . . the rest of the world simply fell away, and she couldn’t help but wonder . . . could this imperfect man be perfect for her?


To Miss with Love
by Katharine Birbalsingh

From the whistle-blowing teacher behind the headlines: one inspirational teacher, one extraordinary year, hope and heartbreak on the front lines of an inner-city school, To Miss With Love by Katharine Birbalsingh is the remarkable and eye opening exposé of our education system.

A third of teachers leave within their first term on the job. This one wouldn’t quit for all the world.

Meet Furious – sixteen, handsome and completely out of control. Nothing frightens him and no one can get through to him. Now meet Munchkin – a sweet kid with glasses who’s an easy target and needs protecting. Then there’s Seething and Deranged, two girls who are brimming with bad attitude; Fifty and Cent, who act like gangsters but are afraid of getting beaten up; and Stoic, a brilliant young mind struggling to survive. In the midst of them all, there is a bodyguard and bouncer, a counsellor and confidante, a young woman whose job it is to motivate and inspire them and somehow keep them out of trouble: their teacher. None will make it through the year unscathed. Some may not even make it at all…

Spanning a year of shocking truths and hard-won victories, of fights and phone-thefts, teenage pregnancies and the dreaded OFSTED report, this is the remarkable diary of an inner-city school teacher. Revealing the extraordinary chaos, mismanagement and wrong-thinking that plague our education system, it is a funny, surprising and sometimes heartbreaking journey from the frontlines of the classroom to the heart of modern Britain.

‘The constant frustration, the struggle to hold on to your ideals in the face of a broken system – this book is the story of contemporary state education. It’s both heart-breaking and inspiring’ Toby Young

‘Everyone should read this book and do a bit of re-thinking. Straight from the chalk-face – a book which explains why our kids have been failed by State Education’ Rod Liddle

‘The teacher who laid bare the chaos in the education systems. . . by delivering some brutal home truths. . . articulate and inspirational’ Daily Mail

‘Charismatic. . . .electrifying. . . This remarkable woman has neatly identified the problem with education’ The Times

Katharine Birbalsingh is Britain’s most outspoken and controversial teacher. Educated at a comprehensive school, she earned a degree in philosophy and modern languages at Oxford university and has taught for over a decade in inner-city schools. To Miss with Love was for several years an anonymous blog that exposed the reality of inner-city schools and the problems with the education system. She now writes regularly for the Telegraph and has given evidence at the Commons select committee for education. Her views have sparked a national debate. www.katharinebirbalsingh.com


The Children’s Story
by James Clavell

It was a simple incident in the life of James Clavell—a talk with his young daughter just home from school—that inspired this chilling tale of what could happen in twenty-five quietly devastating minutes. He writes, “The Children’s Story came into being that day. It was then that I really realized how vulnerable my child’s mind was —any mind, for that matter—under controlled circumstances. Normally I write and rewrite and re-rewrite, but this story came quickly—almost by itself. Barely three words were changed. It pleases me greatly because I kept asking the questions…

Questions like, What’s the use of ‘I pledge allegiance’ without understanding? Like Why is it so easy to divert thoughts? Like What is freedom? and Why is so hard to explain?

The Children’s Story keeps asking me all sorts of questions I cannot answer. Perhaps you can—then your child will….”

New Machiavelli

The New Machiavelli
by Jonathan Powell

The New Machiavelli is a gripping account of life inside ‘the bunker’ of Number 10. In his twenty-first century reworking of Niccolo Machiavelli’s influential masterpiece, The Prince, Jonathan Powell – Tony Blair’s Chief of Staff from 1994 – 2007 – recounts the inside story of that period, drawing on his own unpublished diaries.

Taking the lessons of Machiavelli derived from his experience as an official in fifteenth-century Florence, Powell shows how these lessons can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli’s maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair’s time as Prime Minister, The New Machiavelli is designed to be The Prince for modern times.


The New Machiavelli
by H. G. Wells

“The New Machiavelli” is a novel written by H. G. Wells, first published in 1911. The plot was well-known to have been based on Wells’ affair with Amber Reeves and a satire of Beatrice and Sidney web; and, as such, was constituted a veritable literary scandal at the time. An interesting and entertaining story of life and loves, “The New Machiavelli” will not disappoint fans of Wells work and deserves a place on every bookshelf. Contents include: “The Making Of A Man”, “Concerning A Book That Was Never Written”, “Bromstead And My Father”, “Margaret In London”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

The New Machiavelli
by Alistair McAlpine

Ignore the latest buzz about the kinder, gentler world of new age, team-based management. It’s dog-eat-dog out there, and the sooner you realize it, the better. The New Machiavelli mines Machiavelli’s The Prince for the timeless rules and stratagems that can help today’s business rulers survive and prosper in the jungle of greed and treachery that is commerce. Alistair McAlpine enriches Machiavelli’s text with scenarios from modern business, offering keen new insight into what motivates people. You’ll learn the reasons why:
* Loyalty is not a reliable factor in the workplace
* Great power is held by the “little people” in a business
* It is better to spread power than to centralize it
* You should never believe your own publicity

Fail to read it at your peril.

“For most of my lifetime politicians have been trying to tell businessmen how to go about their tasks … Both groups, however, will enjoy this shrewd commentary on Machiavelli’s timeless principles of skullduggery.”-Margaret Thatcher

“Anyone working in corporate America who doesn’t find, read, and master Alistair McAlpine’s amazing new guidebook to the art of politics in business may soon find themselves self-employed.” -Charles Saatchi, Partner, M&C Saatchi

“Written in a style, like Machiavelli’s own, at once didactic and charming… A work which is a standing satirical reproof to the various management manuals which promise corporate success.”-Times Literary Supplement

The New Machiavelli
by Brandon Musk

Few books throughout history have been as controversial as Nicollo Machiavelli’s ‘The Prince.” The ideas that are contained in “The Prince” are as powerful as they are polarizing. The work was originally intended to pass on the acquired wisdom of the one of the most astute political minds the world has ever known. It was never intended for the eyes of the public but found its way into general release following Machiavelli’s death. The principles within The Prince can be used in many more areas of life than simply the political world. Anyone who is looking to get ahead in life and provide themselves with an advantage over others will find a goldmine of valuable information in this new modern version of the book written by author Brandon Musk entitled “The New Machiavelli.” This version presented by Musk represents the power and knowledge of Machiavelli’s original work updated and improved upon for the modern era in which we live. The language has been made understandable and all references have been updated for modern readers. The book is structured in a way which makes it as useful as possible. Each chapter contains a concise collection of key ideas organized in a logical way. The chapters begin by explaining what Machiavelli originally intended by his words and then proceeds to update each concept for the 21st century. Finally, each chapter shows practical and useful ways of applying the Machiavelli philosophy to different areas of life. If knowledge is power, then this book is a nuclear weapon. It contains the most devastatingly effective tactics related to influence ever committed to paper. By reading and applying this work you will become diabolically effective in any area of life you choose.

H.G. Wells – The New Machiavelli
by H. G. Wells

Herbert George Wells was born on September 21st, 1866 at Atlas House, 46 High Street, Bromley, Kent. He was the youngest of four siblings and his family affectionately knew him as ‘Bertie’. The first few years of his childhood were spent fairly quietly, and Wells didn’t display much literary interest until, in 1874, he accidentally broke his leg and was left to recover in bed, largely entertained by the library books his father regularly brought him. Through these Wells found he could escape the boredom and misery of his bed and convalescence by exploring the new worlds he encountered in these books. From these humble beginnings began a career that was, after several delays, to be seen as one of the most brilliant of modern English writers. Able to write comfortably in a number of genres he was especially applauded for his science fiction works such as The Time Machine and War of the Worlds but his forays into the social conditions of the times, with classics such as Kipps, were almost as commercially successful. His short stories are miniature masterpieces many of which bring new and incredible ideas of science fiction to the edge of present day science fact. Wells also received four nominations for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Despite a strong and lasting second marriage his affairs with other women also brought the complications of fathering other children. His writings and work against fascism, as well as the promotion of socialism, brought him into increasing doubts with and opposition to religion. His writings on what the world could be in works, such as A Modern Utopia, are thought provoking as well as being plausible, especially when viewed from the distressing times they were written in. His diabetic condition pushed him to create what is now the largest Diabetes charity in the United Kingdom. Wells even found the time to run twice for Parliament. It was a long, distinguished and powerfully successful career by the time he died, aged 79, on August 13th, 1946.
