Description: The landscape has had a huge impact on the history of Liverpool and Merseyside. The ice age glaciers carved out the Rivers Mersey and Dee; the Sefton coast provided a perfect place for the earliest humans to hunt and gather food; and the Pool and the Mersey, and England's position on the coast gave King John the perfect base from which to launch his Irish campaigns. This book explores the landscapes from these earliest times, and charts the changing city right through to the present day. It explains why Liverpool looks the way it does today, and how clues in the modern landscape reveal details of its long history. You'll see how the landscape created Liverpool, and how in turn Liverpool recreated the landscape. Waterstones Liverpool: A Landscape History - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

  • Waterstones The Greek Community of Liverpool

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Liverpool is a cosmopolitan city populated by people and communities from all over the world. One of the least known components is the Greek community. Greek people have created colonies and communities around Europe and the wider world since ancient times. This book describes two hundred years' history of the Greek community in Liverpool, a story that has not previously been told. The community was originally developed by merchants fleeing appalling persecution and massacres on one island, Chios. These people built incredibly successful trading companies in Liverpool. Over time, they were joined by other Greeks. Since World War Two, the community has been based mainly on Cypriots, who came to run fish and chip shops and then went on to many other enterprises. This book features people such as Constantine Cavafy, perhaps the most famous Greek poet since Homer. It tells the stories of people who went on to have great influence in high politics, in introducing Buddhism to the UK, in cracking the Enigma code, and in science, the arts and business. This book will appeal to anyone interested in Liverpool local history, maritime and commercial history, Greek history, Cypriot history, and the history of ethnic and minority communities in the UK.

    Description: Kenny Dalglish's relationship with Liverpool Football Club is one of the great love stories of sport. From the moment he first set foot in the Anfield dressing room, Dalglish felt a passion for Liverpool stir within him. After joining from Celtic in 1977, the supremely gifted striker was embraced by Liverpool fans, for the goals and the glory, and most especially for the three European Cups. The Kop's adoration of King Kenny has never ebbed. Liverpool fans have never forgotten how Dalglish held the club together through two tragedies, the first at the Heysel stadium in Brussels in 1985 and then at Hillsborough in 1989. Both disasters are explored in emotional detail in My Liverpool Home. For the sake of his health and his family, Dalglish eventually resigned and Liverpool have not won the title since. However, in his heart he never really left and he has now returned, playing a pivotal role, following the departure of Roy Hodgson, in this turbulent period in the club's history. My Liverpool Home is the story of Dalglish's epic love affair with Liverpool, tracing the highs and lows, the characters, the laughter, the tears, and the many triumphs.

  • Waterstones The The Story of Liverpool

    Price: £16.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: There is something special about Liverpool. From its earliest beginnings it has always been associated with the ups and downs, the triumphs and tribulations of the rest of the country, acting like a mirror to the events that have shaped the country we now think of as Great Britain. As one of the major ports in the land, Liverpool has witnessed the comings and goings of people from all corners of the world who, over the centuries, have constituted the melting pot of nations which has given rise to what we now think of as a typical scouser. In The Story of Liverpool the author has tried not to present the reader with facts and figures, diagrams and statistics that usually form an integral part of an academic history, but to concentrate on the story or romance of Liverpool's evolution over the years. Uppermost in his mind was an attempt to bring history to life, to give it a plot and characters and to convey to the reader and idea of what it would have felt like to be alive at various stages in the city's evolution. The first popular history of Liverpool for many years, this is a comprehensive and revealing account of the city's development from it's earliest days to modern times. Lively, readable and well-illustrated, this is a tremendous book for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. Waterstones The The Story of Liverpool - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: OUR LIVERPOOL is an oral history about the real Liverpool - about the city before its slick transformation to European City of Culture and about the spirit that remains at its heart. Here, at last, is Liverpool's grievous and glorious past. And here, through the people's voices, we find old Liverpool, without the gift-wrap. Its stories pulsate with the rhythms of an alternately funny, flippant, belligerent, stubborn and warm heart, and they broadcast the values of a community, which are the city's true legacy to the modern world. Piers Dudgeon has listened to dozens of people who remember the city as it was, and who have lived through its many changes. They talk of childhood and education, of work and entertainment, of family, community values, health, politics, religion and music. Their stories will make you laugh and cry. It is people's own memories that make history real and this engrossing book captures them vividly. Waterstones Our Liverpool - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
