Elizabeth Taylor and Tom Jones: The Spring Ranche Incident takes place in Nebraska in the 1880's at a time when the Oregon Trail was the main freeway to Oregon and California. It guided the travelers in their quest for gold, land, and religious asylum. Nearly a half million immigrants of various nationalities traversed along the trail and suffered from many hardships, diseases, thievery, and violence to reach their goals. A fair number never made it. However, traveling to the west coast was never the intention of thousands who disembarked from the trail. Many followed their dreams that would take them off the trail hundreds or thousands of miles from Oregon and California. These were the pioneers who would become the farmers of the most fertile lands on earth. Their descendents, over the decades to come, would later be responsible for feeding the world. Amid the disappearing desolation of the central plains in the 1880's, life for the new residents was placid and one dominated by hard work. But in a small corner of Clay County, Nebraska, an emotional pot was brewing and about to boil over horribly. Armed with nothing but their dreams aspirations, and the grubstakes of the family, a pair of twins, a brother and sister, migrated to the U.S. from Wales and eventually to Missouri. From there, they took their vision of prosperity to the virgin lands of an area once known as the Spring Ranche Precinct, Clay County, Nebraska, which was originally settled in 1864. They arrived in Spring Ranche in 1870 and availed themselves of the Homestead Act of 1862. Land, at the time, could be purchased from Uncle Sam for $1.25 an acre. They laid claim to the maximum anount of land allowed by law. Elizabeth Taylor, who married a fellow Welshman, James Taylor, at the early age of 15 in 1869, was a woman ahead of her time. With the limited skills of farming and ranching that she had learned from her father, and with the help of her beloved twin, Tom Jones, her dream of becoming a successful rancher came to fruition. In a time when women were not much more tha unpaid servents, her path to success was understandably difficult. With her brother's help, she was able to cast aside the unspoken societal roadblocks that had always been set before a female and those that rose before her purposely. She was a woman who did everything within her driving nature to sidestep these barriers in reaching her goals. But during those times, which may seem unfathomable to our younger generations of men and women, Elizabeth Taylor and Tom Jones were not welcome to pursue their dreams and goals simply because of their strong wills, work ethics, and because of Elizabeth's sex. The means and underhanded actions that were directed at the twins by their neighbors to thwart their efforts were questionable and at best, unfair, unlawful, and brutally horrific.

The novels and stories of Elizabeth Taylor (1912-75) have always had an enthusiastic following among the general reading public, and have been greatly admired by fellow-writers. This study aims to introduce her work, to trace some of its recurrent preoccupations - with memory, dispossession and bereavement, and with her generation's experience of wartime as both disruption and opportunity - and to highlight the ruthless wit with which she assaulted all forms of egotism and self-satisfaction.

In 1946 many Jewish soldiers returned to their homes in England imagining that they had fought and defeated the forces of fascism in Europe. Yet in London they found a revived fascist movement inspired by Sir Oswald Mosley and stirring up agitation against Jews and communists. Many felt that the government, the police and even the Jewish Board of Deputies were ignoring the threat; so they had to take matters into their own hands, by any means necessary. Forty-three Jewish servicemen met together and set up a group that tirelessly organised, infiltrated meetings, and broke up street demonstrations to stop the rebirth of the far right. The group included returned war heroes; women who went undercover; and young Jews, such as hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, seeking adventure. From 1947, the 43 Group grew into a powerful troop that could muster hundreds of fighters turning meetings into mass street brawls at short notice. The history of the 43 Group is not just a gripping story of a forgotten moment in Britain's postwar history; it is also a timely lesson in how to confront fascism, and how to win.
