Review for Vols 1 & 2. An easy to read, in depth account of Parliament through the ages. Notably, the scandals of today are mittors of the scandals of yester year! Chris Bryant is to be congratulated on issuing this comprehensive work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it Correct., 7 April 2015

I have used an earlier edition of this in my day to day work and bought this for my step-grandson who excels in English at Secondary School. An essential reference tome for those interested in preserving 'good' English.


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: £11.89

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.'


Hanns and Rudolf: The German Jew and the Hunt for the Kommandant of Auschwitz
Hanns and Rudolf: The German Jew and the Hunt for the Kommandant of Auschwitz
by Thomas Harding
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Perseverance over all., 7 April 2015

Everyone should read this fascinating account of perseverance. Two boys of fairly similar backgrounds develop in completely opposite sides in the days of the Third Reich. Not only that but it is a history on a personal level of how choices in that time can affect life. An in depth account of the schizoid life of the Commandant of Auschwitz, brutal to his prisoners yet maintaining family life 'over the wall.' How the hierarchy at the end tried to pass blame on to further up the line and hide behind 'orders.' The determination of the other man to track down the perpetrator of events at Auschwitz is a tale in itself of dogged determination.
