Ernest Hemingway's masterpiece on war, love, loyalty, and honor tells the story of Robert Jordan, an antifascist American fighting in the Spanish Civil War. In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from “the good fight” and one of the foremost classics of war literature. For Whom the Bell Tolls tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades, is attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain. In his portrayal of Jordan’s love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of a guerilla leader’s last stand, Hemingway creates a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author’s previous works, For Whom the Bell Tolls stands as one of the best war novels ever written.

Presented by Hemingway's grandson Seán Hemingway, with a personal foreword by the author’s son Patrick Hemingway, this new enhanced Library Edition of Ernest Hemingway's masterpiece about an American in the Spanish Civil War features early drafts and supplementary material, including three previously uncollected short stories on war by one of the greatest writers on the subject in history. In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from “the good fight,” and one of the foremost classics of war literature in history. Published in 1940, For Whom the Bell Tolls tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain. In his portrayal of Jordan’s love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo’s last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. “If the function of a writer is to reveal reality,” Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, “no one ever so completely performed it.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author’s previous works, For Whom the Bell Tolls tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. When it was first published, The New York Times called it “a tremendous piece of work,” and it still stands today as one of the best war novels of all time.

David Marsh explains the grammar that people really need to know, covering topics such as syntax, rules, apostrophes, spelling, jargon, the abuse of ironic and iconic, -isms, TXT SPK, and the joy of language.

For Who the Bell Tolls is a book that explains the grammar that people really need to know, such as the fact that an apostrophe is the difference between a company that knows its s*** and a company that knows it's s***, or the importance of capital letters to avoid ambiguity in such sentences as 'I helped my Uncle Jack off his horse.'David Marsh's lifelong mission has been to create order out of chaos. For four decades, he has worked for newspapers, from the Sun to the Financial Times, from local weeklies that sold a few thousand copies to the Guardian, with its global readership of nine million, turning the sow's ear of rough-and-ready reportage into a passable imitation of a silk purse.The chaos might be sloppy syntax, a disregard for grammar or a fundamental misunderstanding of what grammar is. It could be an adherence to 'rules' that have no real basis and get in the way of fluent, unambiguous communication at the expense of ones that are actually useful. Clear, honest use of English has many enemies: politicians, business and marketing people, local authority and civil service jargonauts, rail companies, estate agents, academics . . . and some journalists. This is the book to help defeat them. 'A splendid and, more importantly, sane book on English grammar.' Mark Forsyth, author of The Etymologicon

From its original location in Swansea Castle to its present home on a patch of land still known as Cox's Farm, Swansea Prison has had a long and colourful history. In this accessible and fully illustrated book, author Peter Goodall charts the most dramatic moments in the history of the prison, retelling the stories behind the fourteen executions which took place there between 1858 and 1958. Drawing upon material from local newspapers and eyewitness accounts, this volume offers a highly readable account of this aspect of the prison's history. Beginning with the execution of two Greek sailors for a drunken murder committed while their ship was in port, and concluding with such pitiful tales as that of a local man who threw his small daughter off Swansea Pier, For Whom the Bell Tolls is a gripping read. The text is punctuated by illustrations and text boxes that include especially interesting snippets of extra information. It will appeal to an extremely wide readership among both the tourist and local market, as well as to those interested generally in popular as well as criminal history.

Journeys and encounters with other countries and people play a decisive role in the creative process of many artists. Last year we published The Sense of Movement: When Artists Travel, the first volume commemorating the BMW Art Journey--a joint initiative by BMW and Art Basel that supports artists with travel grants. That inaugural compendium featured iconic artists' journeys through art history. The second volume in the series memorializes the first journey undertaken by a recipient of this unique award. Hong Kong-based artist and composer Samson Young traced the sounds and the complex histories of bells in a two-months-long journey that took him to eleven countries on five continents. The artist's compositions, images, and texts give expression to the relationships of tensions between war and peace, solidarity and strife, and of the political dimension of sound.
