Memoirs of a Red Cross Doctor

Our Price
£16.99
As featured by the Daily Mail: ‘War, poverty and disaster through the eyes of a Red Cross doctor: Medic’s 35-year career spanning civil wars, Cambodia’s ‘killing fields’ and the Kashmir earthquake is shown in captivating images’

About the book: Synonymous with conflict and humanitarian aid, the mandate of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is to protect the wounded victims of war, civilians, prisoners and refugees alike.

In Memoirs of a Red Cross Doctor, Frank Ryding recounts the missions he undertook with the Red Cross during a career spanning 35 years. Having worked as a doctor in many of the world’s war zones and natural disasters – from the ‘killing field’ era of Cambodia, to Afghanistan, Chechnya, Somalia, Pakistan and Sudan – his is an account of observation and also personal experience, contrasting the serious, the terrifying, the heart-rending and the heart-warming.

It is also the story of the victims who suffer the consequences of war and disaster. It shows both their courage and that of the aid agencies sent to help them. As Frank recalls from some Somali graffiti: ”It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness’.

Sexuality and Its Impact on History

Our Price
£10.39
RRP: £14.99
As featured in the Mail On Sunday: Queen of the courtesans – Cora Pearl. Read the full article via www.dailymail.co.uk.

About the book: Would you swig a magic potion or plot to kill your husband in order to marry your lover? These are just two of the many romantic and sexual customs from British history that you will explore as eight authors take us through the centuries, revealing that truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to love. From bizarre trivia about courtly love, to techniques and prostitution, you’ll encounter memorable nuggets of provocative information that you’ll want to share.

It’s all here: ménage a trois, chastity belts, Tudor fallacies, royal love and infidelity, marriage contracts (which were more like business arrangements), brothels, kept women, and whorehouses. Take a peek at what really happened between the sheets. Each story provides you with shocking detail about what was at the heart of romance throughout British history.

Sexuality and Its Impact on History – The British Stripped Bare chronicles the pleasures and perils of the flesh, sharing secrets from the days of the Anglo-Saxons, medieval courtly love traditions, diabolical Tudor escapades – including those of Anne Boleyn and Mary Queen of Scots – the Regency, and down to the ‘prudish’ Victorian Era. This scholarly yet accessible study brings to light the myriad varieties of British sexual mores.
