    Description: Between the 1940s and the 1960s the microcar posed a challenge to large companies producing cars in huge volumes to a uniform pattern. The microcar was the opposite, produced by small entrepreneurial start-ups using quirky, unusual design concepts. This book is a beautifully illustrated history of British microcar history from the early days of Bond and Reliant, to the proliferation of micro marques during the 1950s and their demise during the 1960s. It explores many eccentric British concepts, but also includes the influential continental competitors. It examines the social and economic reasons for the disappearance of the type and the return of the microcar in the twenty-first century, showing how, like its mid-twentieth century counterpart, it is challenging the big company orthodoxy.

The British And Cyprus


Category: History
Description: The relationship between Britain and Cyprus over the course of the past 100 years has been a constantly evolving one. Since the First World War, Cyprus has played a key role in British defence strategy, and, after the withdrawal from Egypt, the island became the British Middle East headquarters. Today, Britain retains two sovereign bases in Cyprus and the island has become a popular holiday destination for many British tourists. Using previously unpublished letters and personal interviews, The British and Cyprus is told through the words of the people who served the British Crown on Cyprus - civil and military - and includes fascinating accounts of the dramatic fight against EOKA in the 1950s, who pressed for an end to British rule on the island.

The Military In British India


Category: Other
Description: T. A. Heathcote's study of the conflicts that established British rule in South Asia, and of the military's position in the constitution of British India, is a classic work in the field. By placing these conflicts clearly in their local context, his account moves away from the Euro-centric approach of many writers on British imperial military history. It provides a greater understanding not only of the history of the British Indian Army but also of the Indian experience which had such a formative an effect on the British Army itself. This new edition has been fully revised and given appropriate illustrations.
