Footnotes to History
Footnotes to History
by Nigel Harris
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £27.73

5.0 out of 5 stars What of the Footnote People?, 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Footnotes to History (Hardcover)
A well constructed account of two intermarried families (the Crokers & Pennels) who mainly featured in 'footnotes' of better known politico/social personages but who had a fantastic history themselves, the author being a descendant of the Pennel family. The layout of the book allows one not to be swamped with 'yards' of descending family trees as Nigel Harris has skillfully presented sections to fit in with whichever family member is being investigated. Nigel Harris is a well known academic publisher in Philosophy but let not that deter the ordinary reader. This book is one of the most readable accounts of Georgian and Victorian family life and society, interestingly researched and presented.
Perhaps not for 'Aunt Agatha' but certainly an adjunct for students of the period, professional or amateur.

The Diary of Lena Mukhina: A Girl's Life in the Siege of Leningrad
The Diary of Lena Mukhina: A Girl's Life in the Siege of Leningrad
by Lena Mukhina
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Personal Account fron the Siege of Leningrad., 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the 'other Anna Frank' tale of WW2 but set in occupied Russia during the Siege of Leningrad. It details the turbulence in the day to day living in that period before the nazis were pushed back west. But it also shows the effect on the developing psyche of a teenage girl as she is eventually left alone to cope. The content of her account swings from 'normal' teenager to problem solving that no teenager should have to face. Inevitably it is somewhat repetitive at times as life day to day was repetitive and as one might find in any teenager's diary jottings. Again worth reading if only to get an account of how it was 'at the coal face.'
