Download or read book The experience of suburban modernity written by Michael John Law and published by Manchester University Press. This book was released on 2014-12-01 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The experience of suburban modernity looks at the history of the London suburbs in the interwar years. It shows that, contrary to those accounts that portray suburbia as static and boring, these suburbs were in fact at the heart of the adoption of private transport and new mobilities. Wealthier middle-class suburbanites enjoyed driving at speed on new arterial roads, visiting roadhouses for a transgressive night out, taking five-shilling flights from the local airport, and joining cycling and motorcycle clubs. All this fun came at a price for some in the form of thousands of deaths in road accidents, plane crashes on suburban housing and in the despoiling of the countryside through road development. This book will be welcomed by academics and students working in suburban studies, historical geography and interwar British history and can also be enjoyed by anyone interested in the history of London.
Download or read book Expanding Suburbia written by Roger Webster and published by Berghahn Books. This book was released on 2001-02-01 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the last few decades suburbia has grown enormously and become a phenomenon attracting the attention of scholars as well as practitioners by whom it is seen as an increasingly significant and complex area of modern life. The essays in this volume consider a range of representations of suburban life from the late nineteenth century to the present day, including fiction, film, and popular music, drawn from America and Australia as well as Britain. They explore and challenge traditional views of suburbia so that, rather than a location of conformity and stereotypicality, it can be viewed as a site of social conflict, division, and ambiguity as well as a source of significant creativity across a range of cultural texts. The volume takes a thematic approach, considering the rise of suburbia, imagined and real suburbias, alternative suburbias: all of the essays have a strong historical dimension and the overall approach is characterized by interdisciplinarity.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This groundbreaking book is the first full-length study of British horror radio from the pioneering days of recording and broadcasting right through to the digital audio cultures of our own time.

The volume draws on extensive archival research as well as insightful interviews with significant writers, producers and actors. The book offers detailed analysis of major radio series such as Appointment with Fear, The Man in Black, The Price of Fear and Fear on Four as well as one-off horror plays, comedy-horror and experimental uses of binaural and digital technology in producing uncanny audio.

Download or read book All the Tiny Moments Blazing written by Ged Pope and published by Reaktion Books. This book was released on 2020-10-07 with total page 480 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The London suburbs have, for more than two hundred and fifty years, fired the creative literary imagination: whether this is Samuel Johnson hiding away in bucolic preindustrial Streatham, Italo Svevo cheering on Charlton Athletic Football Club down at The Valley, or Angela Carter hymning the joyful “wrongness” of living south-of-the-river in Brixton. From Richmond to Rainham, Cockfosters to Croydon, this sweeping literary tour of the thirty-two London Boroughs describes how writers, from the seventeenth century on, have responded to and fictionally reimagined London’s suburbs. It introduces us to the great suburban novels, such as Hanif Kureishi’s Bromley-set The Buddha of Suburbia, Lawrence Durrell’s The Black Book, and Zadie Smith’s NW. It also reveals the lesser-known short stories, diaries, poems, local guides, travelogues, memoirs, and biographies, which together show how these communities have long been closely observed, keenly remembered, and brilliantly imagined.
Download or read book Lower Middle Class Nation written by Nicola Bishop and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2020-12-10 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lower-Middle-Class Nation provides an unparalleled interdisciplinary cultural history of the lower-middle-class worker in British life since 1850. Considering highbrow, lowbrow, and middle-brow forms across literature, film, television and more, Nicola Bishop traces the development of the lower-middle-class from the mid-19th century to the present day, tackling a number of pressing, consistent concerns such as automation, commuting, and the search for a life/work balance. Above all, this book brings together ideas about class, nationhood, and gender, demonstrating that a particularly British lower-middle-class identity is constructed through the spaces and practices of the everyday. Aimed at undergraduate, postgraduates and scholars working in media and social history, literature, popular culture, cultural studies and sociology, Lower-Middle-Class Nation represents a new direction in cultural histories of work, labour, and leisure.

Download or read book Something to Crowe About written by E.W. NICKERSON and published by Trafford Publishing. This book was released on 2013-09 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When the British and Canadian governments want the people of the world, particularly France, to be reminded of the French Vichy government's involvement and active participation in the Final Solution during World War 2, a simple plan of communication turns into dangers never anticipated. Special consultant to MI6 Ed Crowe, along with his special friend and CSIS operative Pat W., spend their August 1985 'honeymoon' in Paris in order to communicate the details of the Vichy's proactive involvement. The success of the plan leads to international headlines and the identification of neo-Nazi groups in both France and Britain, including their importation of illegal drugs into Britain. The ensuing activity results in the reluctant involvement of Scotland Yard and the enthusiastic involvement of the CIA. While the work is dangerous and deadly, it only serves to deepen the love between Ed Crowe and Carolyn Andrews, daughter of Lord Stonebridge, the head of the British Secret Service, MI6.
