This book simplifies the sentences in Book 1 of The Wealth of Nations to make it more concise and readable. It optimizes Smith's content by organizing each idea into bullet points with sub-ideas as sub-bullets, all under topic headings, without losing the original idea. Book 1 introduces the concept of labour or work being the real price of everything, very different from current Economics which sees value in monetary terms only. This price is then made up of the rent of land, the profits of stock, or the wages of labour. This work is suitable for the general public, but is designed more for students and researchers who want to understand or cite Adam Smith's most important ideas. Chapter 11 is especially useful for farmers and land owners as it discusses the pros and cons of different crops.

Nottingham Date Book 1 850 -1800

This is book 1 of a two Volume set. The Nottingham Date Book is a book of the history of Nottingham from 850 to 1884. In particular, after about 1750, it is full of references to every-day happenings in the town and its people. Not just important people, but normal people too. Its fascination for me is not only because I was born in Nottingham and interested in its history, but also as a family historian, as it contains so many references to people and every-day events. It is a particularly rare book, and even more so in its complete edition up to 1884.

More than two centuries after Master’s Mate Fletcher Christian led a mutiny against Lieutenant William Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel called Bounty, the true story of this enthralling adventure has become obscured by the legend. Combining vivid characterization and deft storytelling, Caroline Alexander shatters the centuries-old myths surrounding this story. She brilliantly shows how, in a desperate attempt to save one man from the gallows and another from ignominy, two powerful families came together and began to create the version of history we know today. The true story of the mutiny on the Bounty is an epic of duty and heroism, pride and power, and the assassination of a brave man’s honor at the dawn of the Romantic age.
