St Mary's is back and is facing a battle to survive in this, the fourth instalment of the Chronicles. Max and Leon are re-united and looking forward to a peaceful lifetime together. But, sadly, they don't even make it to lunchtime.

The Jew's Trail through the Ages is translated from the 1937 edition of Die Spur des Juden im Wandel der Zeiten, written by Alfred Rosenberg in 1919 and first published in 1920. Tracing Jewry's interaction with non-Jews from antiquity to the 20th century, Rosenberg discerns a constantly re-occurring pattern. First, the Jews are accepted, or at least tolerated, despite their pronounced desire for exclusivity. Jewish usury results over time in great wealth and influence, often even special privileges. Ultimately, the burden of usury, abuse of power, arrogance and hardly concealed hostility toward everything non-Jewish trigger a backlash, the tables are turned and the Jews suffer persecution. Relying heavily on Jewish sources such as the Talmud and various Jewish authors, Rosenberg examines the Jewish spirit as well as the Jewish role in Freemasonry, the French revolution and communism. Softcover. 180pp.

“History is just one damned thing after another” - Arnold Toynbee A madcap new slant on history that seems to be everyone's cup of tea... Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document - to try and find the answers to many of History's unanswered questions...and not to die in the process. But one wrong move and History will fight back - to the death. And, as they soon discover - it's not just History they're fighting. Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake ...

Step back in time and discover the sights, sounds and smells of London through the ages in this enthralling journey into the capital's rich, teeming and occasionally hazardous past. 'London: A Travel Guide Through Time is easily the most engaging social history of the capital since the books of Liza Picard a decade ago.' - Londonist Let time traveller Dr Matthew Green be your guide to six extraordinary periods in London's history - the ages of Shakespeare, medieval city life, plague, coffee houses, the reign of Victoria and the Blitz. We'll turn back the clock to the time of Shakespeare and visit a savage bull and bear baiting arena on the Bankside. In medieval London, we'll circle the walls as the city lies barricaded under curfew, while spinning further forward in time we'll inhale the 'holy herb' in an early tobacco house, before peering into an open plague pit. In the 18th century, we'll navigate the streets in style with a ride on a sedan chair, and when we land in Victorian London, we'll take a tour of freak-show booths and meet the Elephant Man. You'll meet pornographers and traitors, actors and apothecaries, the mad, bad and dangerous to know, all desperate to show you the thrilling and vibrant history of the world's liveliest city.
