M. R. James was born in Kent, England in 1862. James came to writing fiction relatively late, not publishing his first collection of short stories – Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (1904) – until the age of 42. Modern scholars now see James as having redefined the ghost story for the 20th century and he is seen as the founder of the 'antiquarian ghost story'. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions with a brand new introductory biography of the author.

Beginning with Toya Indian dances in Florida and the Matachines dance-drama in the Southwest, and moving to ordination balls, pantomimes, Black election celebrations and country dances called Burgoyne's Surrender and Washington's Resignation, this study presents dance in the North American lands that would become the United States of America as a powerful yet ephemeral medium of communication and social dynamics. It integrates the history of dance and its music into cultural, commercial, and aesthetic aspects of life in the New World, both for established native societies and newcomers. Special topics include dance as a metaphor and preparation for battle, Yankee peddlers of dance and their publications, French connections, Spanish influences, dance on board ships, in religion and in the military, and Negro jigs, the Virginia Reel, and mumming traditions. Included is the colorful history of theatrical dancers who performed on the boards from Portsmouth to Charleston and competitive dancers in early versions of today's Scottish games. The core of the book is a state-by-state narrative of dance and dance music in each colony or territory from Maine to California. Thoroughly documented with extensive period quotations, illustrations, footnotes, bibliography and a detailed index, this study integrates much new information with a new way of looking at dance as a phenomenon that was both re-creative and manipulative, commercial and personal, and pleasurable and painful to those who participated.

A not quite sixteen-year-old Alfred Pickup is declared healthy, and after a simple written exam, joins the Royal Navy as a Junior Electrical Mechanic 2nd class in 1961. Pickup would serve on numerous ships from the HMS Wakeful, a decaying WW II era Destroyer to the HMS Cardiff, a brand new destroyer in 1979. Before joining any ship, a sixteen-year-old must learn many new skills. From minor obstacles of embroidering his name on his uniforms to learning to use a rifle, Pickup is readied for duty in strict Navy tradition. He puts together a string of first round knockouts as a member of the boxing team before seemingly meeting his match in a local ranked amateur. He would see incredible storms, on board fires, mechanical breakdowns, and the threat of war when the Falklands conflict began in 1982. Different ports-of-call would offer a range of shore leave possibilities. Strict navy regulations would not deter some crew from overindulging, nor would it protect them from unscrupulous individuals looking to separate them from their pay. While in foreign ports, Pickup would meet a remarkable number of Navy-friendly locals happy to show him the sights or take him into their homes for a home cooked meal. Raising a family of four on a meager Navy pay would see Pickup and his wife running a bed & breakfast, and later a fish and chips shop. Pickup worked odd jobs ashore and during a lengthy station in Gibraltar, operated a booming automotive repair and paint shop. Fish and Ships chronicles with humour and fine detail a twenty-five year career in the RN that would see Pickup rise to the rank of Chief Petty Officer and retire from service in his early forties to life as a restaurateur.

Arthur Peters was born and raised in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, attended University of King's College in Halifax and ministered six parishes before being elected Bishop of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and then Archbishop and Metropolitan. He retired in 2002, after 40 years in the clergy, 20 years as bishop and archbishop. A Deeper Imprint recounts Peters' life from his humble beginnings through the experiences of parish life in Nova Scotia, of raising a family on the move and of Peters' acumen dealing with diocesan matters during exciting, sometimes controversial, times for the Anglican Church: ordination of women, accusations of abuse, Residential Schools. Growing up in a humble and hardworking environment in wartime Cape Breton left an undoubtedly deep imprint on Peters, who, in turn, left his own imprint in numerous parishes, the diocese and the Anglican communion as a whole.

At one time during the first half of the twentieth century, Marcus Garvey was the most famous black man on the planet. Hailed as both the 'black Moses' and merely 'a Negro with a hat', he masterminded the first International Convention of the Negro Peoples of the World, began the Universal Negro Improvement Association and captivated audiences with his powerful speeches and audacious 'Back to Africa' programme. But he was to end his life in penury, ignominy and friendless exile, after serving jail time in both the US and Jamaica. With masterful skill, wit and compassion, Colin Grant chronicles Garvey's extraordinary life, the failed business ventures, his misguided negotiations with the Ku Klux Klan, the two wives and the premature obituaries that contributed to his lonely, tragic death. This is the dramatic cautionary tale of a man who articulated the submerged thoughts of an awakening people. WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION FOR THE PAPERBACK EDITION

Nazi Organized Recreation And Entertainment In The Third Reich

This book explores the activities of the Nazi regime's vast leisure programme. Shortly after coming to power in Germany, it began a large-scale undertaking to bring happiness and a good life to so-called 'Aryan' Germans, carried out by the Nazi leisure organization Kraft durch Freude. Julia Timpe traces Kraft durch Freude's practices and propaganda from 1933 through the Second World War, and analyses Nazi-organized sports classes, entertainment events, and beautification campaigns for industrial sites and the countryside, as well as Kraft durch Freude's activities in entertaining German soldiers and concentration camp guards. Contributing to newer scholarship which focuses on the integratory force of the Nazi promise of a unified 'racial community' of all 'Aryan' Germans, this book highlights that Kraft durch Freude's 'everyday production of joy' was central to Nazism, closely connected to the destructive side of the Third Reich, and ultimately a major reason for Nazism's success among the German population.
