This is the first full-colour history of the world-famous toy soldiers to chart the whole story of their development from Victorian table toy to 21st Century collectable. Prior to 1893 the family toy business of the Britain family was struggling as the toy industry was dominated by German manufacturers and importers. Then came the fateful decision first to import, then to design and manufacture, toy soldiers, an area the German firms were particularly strong in. Britains Toy Soldiers were born and soon their boxes stamped with the slogan 'Best Quality English Make' were being eagerly opened by little boys across Britain and then around the world. The rest, as they say is history and it is all captured here by James Opie, the world's leading expert on the subject, as he lovingly traces the varying fortunes of arguably the most famous British toy company. Illustrated with lavish colour photographs, many of them featuring items from the author's own collection, the book includes feature sections such as collectors' favourites and prices, high-value and famous sets, artistic highlights, quirks and mysteries. It is without doubt the most authoritative book on the subject and will be welcomed by the thousands of devoted collectors world wide as well as many more with fond memories of childhood battles with these beautiful toys.

Design for a Vulnerable Planet

Author: Frederick Steiner

Publisher: University of Texas Press

We inhabit a vulnerable planet. The devastation caused by natural disasters such as the southern Asian tsunami, Hurricanes Katrina and Ike, and the earthquakes in China's Sichuan province, Haiti, and Chile—as well as the ongoing depletion and degradation of the world's natural resources caused by a burgeoning human population—have made it clear that "business as usual" is no longer sustainable. We need to find ways to improve how we live on this planet while minimizing our impact on it. Design for a Vulnerable Planet sounds a call for designers and planners to go beyond traditional concepts of sustainability toward innovative new design that fosters regeneration and resilience. Drawing on his own and others' experiences across three continents, Frederick Steiner advocates design practice grounded in ecology and democracy and informed by critical regionalism and reflection. He begins by establishing the foundation for a more ecological approach to planning and design, adopting a broad view of ecology as encompassing human and natural, urban and wild environments. Steiner explores precedents for human ecological design provided by architect Paul Cret, landscape architect Ian McHarg, and developer George Mitchell while discussing their planning for the University of Texas campus, the Lake Austin watershed, and The Woodlands. Steiner then focuses on emerging Texas urbanism and extends his discussion to broader considerations beyond the Lone Star State, including regionalism, urbanism, and landscape in China and Italy. He also examines the lessons to be learned from human and natural disasters such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the BP oil spill. Finally, Steiner offers a blueprint for designing with nature to help heal the planet's vulnerabilities.

The Art of Race Car Design

After building his first race cars out of southern Louisiana junkyards, Bob Riley quickly established himself as a leading light, if not genius, when it came to race car design. His first major suspension design helped Henry Ford II make good on his vendetta to beat Enzo Ferrari at Le Mans. Riley's first radical Indy car designs with its ingenious center hub mounted suspension resulted in A.J. Foyt's landmark fourth victory at the Indianapolis 500 in 1977. Since then, Riley has continued to be at the heart of the world of motorsports, working with its most famous drivers at the biggest events, including the Daytona 500, where his engineering helped Dale Earnhardt finally win NASCAR's marquee event. Americans love the "genius" angle like everyone else. They love winners. Sports stars are overtaking Hollywood these days in popularity. Racing readers are a small but predictable group and suspect the generation familiar with Bob's exploits at Indy would be keen on a book like this. They're the same age group pumping up the vintage magazine market and the collectible car market.

John Strawson describes joining the 4th Hussars in the Middle East in 1942 and serving with them until amalgamation with the 9th Hussars in 1958 as The Queen s Royal Irish Hussars. He commanded the Regiment during the Borneo campaign and was Colonel from 1975 to 1985. His account of war in Italy and of operations in Malaya and Borneo are of special interest.This light-hearted memoir reveals devotion to his family, friends, Regiment and to horses. His adventures with horses and hounds, whipping-in to the legendary Loopy Kennard, and during his time as Master of the Staff College Draghounds are particularly diverting. Addiction to reading and writing led to authorship of twelve military history books.Military appointments included command of a brigade, two years at SHAPE and finally Chief of Staff, UK Land Forces. He then describes working as Westland Aircraft s Military Adviser, mainly in the Middle East and gives a vivid account of life in Cairo in the latter 1970s.In sum General Strawson shows how enjoyable, how varied, sometimes how demanding a soldier s life can be, above all how rewarding, made so by the priceless quality of the regimental system and the comrades with whom he served."

This official history of the FIM Grand Prix motor cycle racing World Championship, since its formation in 1949, records the action from a sport that has seen massive changes during the last 50 years with Japanese manufacturers eclipsing their European rivals, purpose-built race circuits replacing true road courses and a reduction in the number of Grand Prix classes. In other respects it has enjoyed remarkable continuity, as motor cycle racing has remained the domain of the major manufacturers anxious to promote the awareness of their road machines. Contemporary Grand Prix designs are clearly descended from the bikes raced in the 1950s. This book traces the major trends and developments during the last 50 years and it profiles the legendary riders, teams and innovators that have dominated the sport during this period. Concluding the history is a comprehensive and detailed results section which provides an invaluable source of reference for any motor cycle enthusiast.

Whilst rivals come and go, The World's Leading Grand Prix Annual reaches its 63rd year of publication as the indisputable leader in its field. The 19-race Formula 1 World championship season is covered with its usual meticulous attention to detail. This year, the much-respected Tony Dodgins takes over the editor's role, supported by the award-winning author Maurice Hamilton. The vastly experienced pair, both long-time paddock insiders, bring you all the drama and intrigue that is Formula 1 in their reportage. Supporting their exhaustive race reports are the traditionally detailed result spreads that include specially prepared and easy to follow lap charts. Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel's charge towards a fourth consecutive title against his perennial challenger Fernando Alonso, has been enlivened by the arrival of Mercedes-Benz as title contenders with the newly-arrived Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg both claiming race victories during the 2013 season. Adding Ferrari-bound Kimi Räikkönen to this heady mix merely spices up an already fascinating championship year that ebbed and flowed across a punishing 9-month race calendar.Mark Hughes once more analyses the successes, frustrations and failures of each of the eleven teams in his Team-By-Team review, which includes team personnel and technical specifications of the F1 cars showcased in the beautiful illustrations by Adrian Dean. Special features for the 2013 edition include the marking of two special milestones, as Williams reached 600 race starts, and McLaren celebrated their 50th Anniversary as a racing team from their humble beginnings back in 1963. The sport's other leading categories are also given lavish coverage in this comprehensive review. The single-seat ladder from Formula 3 up to GP2 showcases the rising talent pool, all aiming to make their way into Formula 1. Meanwhile Audi continued their domination of Le Mans in Sports Car Racing, whilst Touring Cars, in all their respective categories, continued to provide door-to door banging combat. Veteran scribe Gordon Kirby continues to give his no-holds barred assessment of the racing year in the United States, as NASCAR continues to dominate, despite welcome signs of a revival of Indy Car racing, highlighted by an emotional victory in the Indianapolis 500 by the enormously popular Brazilian veteran Tony Kanaan. AUTOCOURSE traditionally wraps up the year with the most complete results record supplied anywhere in a single volume. This lavish yearbook continues to be essential reading for all fans of global motorsport.
