Schoffel Oakham Fleece Gilet - Palomino - 38
Schoffel Oakham Fleece Gilet - Palomino - 38

2.0 out of 5 stars nothing like the illustration here, 22 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately, this item was a very strange - in my opinion - brown, nothing like the illustration here. It was a much lighter brown, that would go with very few items of men's clothing at least. The illustrated colour as it appears on my screen would have been fine. The supplier - Allcocks - were very efficient in handling the return


Rule Britannia
Rule Britannia
by Daphne Du Maurier
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Set in the 1970s!, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rule Britannia (Hardcover)
Out of the usual scope of Du Maurier novels in being set in modern times, this work is also fascinating in suggesting some nationalistic attitudes which were unfamiliar to me from her life.


The Nature of Economic Thought: Selected Papers, 1955-1965
The Nature of Economic Thought: Selected Papers, 1955-1965
by G.L.S. Shackle
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding work by one of our most brilliant 20th century economists., 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
George Shackle's work and thinking was of the most profound as he considered uncertainty and 'unforeknowledge'. Almost his last work ('To Cope with Time' F.H. Stephen ed.) brings together his ideas and Shell's approach to these issues through multiple scenario development.

Brancaster Staithe: The Story of a Norfolk Fishing Village
by Maurice de Soissons
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worthwhile - a pity his earlier book is out of print., 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sound and interesting content. A further book is anticipated, and this may provide an opportunity for a more comprehensive survey.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nearly half of tne reprint is missing, 2 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This edition of a book published in 1895 is supposed to be a reproduction, and it states it "may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages." In fact the copy I received was originally published with 211 pages. The present reprint has 101 faulty (blurred, mising passages or pages)in the copy I received. Apparently produced by Lightning Source UK Ltd, of Milton Keynes, this edition should never have been issued and Amazon should stop its further distribution immediately. I will in due course be returning my copy, when I can find the time and the 12 mile car journey this will entail. To charge £16.14p for a book nearly 50% faulty is a disgrace.

4.0 out of 5 stars A romping good read, 1 April 2009
Not only is this book a romping good read, it reminds us all of the failures and excessive ambitions of government in Britain over the past 12 years. We probably knew it all, at some point, but everyone can gain value from a refresher course. Reading this book may not yet be chargeable as "handling terrorist material" (p.108), and justification may still be a suffcient defence in "the rotten state", but Dr. Butler could have gone further in some fields. His coverage of renewable energy "scams" (to use James Lovelock's term) could have been both more extensive and more detailed than the coverage on pps. 181/182; the true nature of the PFI (so redolent of Enron and more recent 'off-the-books' accounting) could also have been developed further (touched on in pps. 222/223), but these are minor points on an excellent wide-ranging review of governmental absurdities in recent years.
