THE PUNJAB MAIL MURDER
by Roger Perkins

The story of the murder in 1931 of George Ramsay Hext, an officer in the Indian Army, on the "Punjab Mail" - one of India's premier express trains. Politically motivated, the murder was intended to aid the Nationalist movement but served instead the arguments of those who claimed the sub-continent was not yet ready for independence. The murder was noted not only for its savagery but for the extraordinary sequence of events which followed.

COMRADES: PORTRAITS FROM THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR
by Paul Preston

A new interpretation of the course, causes and characters of the Spanish Civil War. Starting at the extreme right of the political spectrum and moving across it to the extreme left, using the lives of ten key individuals, the author builds up a vivid picture of how the War came to pass, and how those who started, suffered and stopped it were coloured by the experience. Here are psychological profiles of the La Pasionaria, Primo de Rivera, Salvador Madariaga, and of the enigma himself, Generalissimo Franco.

INTO THE THIRTIES: STYLE AND DESIGN 1927 - 1934
by Klaus Jurgen Sembach

The late 1920s and early 1930s saw the general acceptance of what are still regarded as the best elements in modern design, and yet this period in the applied arts coincided with the Great Depression, political upheaval and social unrest. Text and illustrations show this era in poster, china and glassware design, in the buildings of Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Gropius, in the furniture of Breuer and Thonet, in the photographs of Cecil Beaton and Edward Steichen and in the Films of Fritz Lange and Rene Clair.

GERNIKA: EL BOMBARDEO
by Imanol Villa

Spanish text. The bombing of Guernica in the Spanish Civil War was the first mass air attack on a densly populated town. It was carried out at the behest of the Spanish Nationalist Government by its allies, the Nazi German Luftwaffe's Condor Legion and the Fascist Italian Aviazione Legionaria. It was a war crime by definition, even before the work of Pablo Picasso brought its full horror to the world's attention. A huge international outcry resulted whose echo continues to shake our consciences. The book includes a Spanish language DVD which tells the story through the eyes of those who were there and well known military historians.
