The battered and exhausted Britain of 1945 was desperate for workers - to rebuild, to fill the factories, to make the new NHS work. From all over the world and with many motives, thousands of individuals took the plunge. Most assumed they would spend just three or four years here, sending most of their pay back home, but instead large numbers stayed - and transformed the country.
Drawing on an amazing array of unusual and surprising sources, Clair Wills' wonderful new book brings to life the incredible diversity and strangeness of the migrant experience. She introduces us to lovers, scroungers, dancers, homeowners, teachers, drinkers, carers and many more to show the opportunities and excitement as much as the humiliation and poverty that could be part of the new arrivals' experience. Irish, Bengalis, West Indians, Poles, Maltese, Punjabis and Cypriots battled to fit into an often shocked Britain and, to their own surprise, found themselves making permanent homes. As Britain picked itself up again in the 1950s migrants set about changing life in their own image, through music, clothing, food, religion, but also fighting racism and casual and not so casual violence.
Lovers and Strangers is an extremely important book, one that is full of enjoyable surprises, giving a voice to a generation who had to deal with the reality of life surrounded by 'white strangers' in their new country.

Описание: This is the story of one of the great outflows of art in history, that is, from China into the collections and museums of the West. Western collectors and international dealers gathered paintings, ceramics, and other art objects during a short period from 1860 into the early years of the twentieth century, and now there is a reverse flow as wealthy Chinese collectors purchase back some of these treasures.

Описание: Set against the glamorous backdrop of the Iranian National Ballet Company in 1970s Tehran, awash with money thanks to the generous patronage of the Shahs wife Farah Pahlavi known as Shahbanu, this is the true story of Clair Symonds, a naive 19 year old Jewish ballet dancer who grew up in South Africa during the era of apartheid and who sets off to Iran without even knowing where that country is, let alone anything about its rich history and culture. Within a few months of her arrival she has met and fallen in love with Arash Alizadeh, a dashing student of architecture five years her senior and whose passion in life, much to his fathers disdain, is classical dance - in addition to being a fierce critic of the Shahs dictatorial regime. Nothing, it seems, can prevent Clair and Arashs romance from moving rapidly towards marriage - even the opposition of their respective fathers. Having been seduced by the charm and allure of her dashing Iranian knight, Clair fails to take a stand against the Alizadeh familys policy of keeping her Jewishness strictly under wraps. There were dark mutterings, even from Arash, of the Holocaust being a myth to justify the existence of Israel and to dampen down sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians. Not that such grand issues are of much concern to Clair - she is preoccupied with dancing the role of Zarema in The Fountain of Bakhchesarai and the great ballet classics which are part and parcel of the companys lavish repertoire. Besides, she is hopelessly in love and any criticisms of Arashs increasingly erratic behaviour fall on deaf ears. But Arash proves to be considerably more charming in courtship and seduction than in wedlock and matrimony - Clair seeing herself thrown into the arms of her new family rather than those of her husband. And in accepting the status quo she reluctantly becomes more sister than wife. Undeterred, Clair decides to marry Arash for a second time. Does love conquer all? Are religious and cultural differences insurmountable, as many would have us believe, meaning that any union between Jew and Muslim is doomed to failure from the outset? Romance and Revolution is the uplifting, eye-opening true story of contemporary relevance of one young womans long, lonely and often painful journey of empowerment as, with the Revolution and the advent of the Ayatollahs in Iran, she begins to search for solutions which, hitherto, have eluded her. Is absolutely any behaviour acceptable relating to romance? Are there any limits at all when it comes to unconditional love?

Christmastime, 1913: Grace Knight's elegant hotel in Cuernavaca is the place to see and be seen. Mexico's native and foreign luminaries flock there to dance to the new beat of ragtime under the ballroom's twinkling electric lights.
Outside the city, violence is looming. Federal soldiers raid the hacienda of Don Miguel Sanchez, hunting for followers of the charismatic rebel, Emiliano Zapata. In a hailstorm of rifle fire, sixteen-year-old Angela Sanchez's life changes forever. She takes her father's Winchester carbine, gathers the survivors, and rides off to join Zapata's army.
Grace and Angela are two very different women. But both will do anything to protect the people--and the country--that they love as they are swept up in a Revolution that almost destroys them.
