Peter Jones - Author

About the Author

Peter Jones spent several years working as a consultant in credit card banking, fixing various issues in high-profile organisations. (And thereby most likely causing the credit crisis and global recession.) Peter's outlook on life changed dramatically when Kate, his wife of 2 years and 3 months, passed away due to a brain haemorrhage. He left his job in finance to follow his passions: now he has written both fiction and non-fiction, and currently runs workshops and talks on his subject of expertise: How To Do Everything and Be Happy. Peter lives just a few miles outside London. He doesn't own a large departmental store and probably isn't the same guy you've seen on Dragons' Den.

Eureka! Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Ancient Greeks but Were Afraid to Ask

Eureka! Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Ancient Greeks but Were Afraid to Ask

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 02/07/2015

The ancient Greeks gave us our alphabet and much of our scientific, medical and cultural language; they invented democracy, atomic theory, and the rules of logic and geometry; laid the foundations of philosophy, history, tragedy and comedy; and debated everything from the good life and the role of women, to making sense of foreigners and the best form of government, all in the most sophisticated terms. But who were they? In Eureka!, Peter Jones tells their epic story, which begins with the Trojan War and ends with the rise of the Roman Empire, by breaking down each major period into a series of informative nuggets. Along the way he introduces the major figures of the age, including Homer, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Euclid and Archimedes; explores the Greek myths and the role of the gods;provides fascinating insights into everyday life in ancient times; and shows us the very foundations of Western culture.

How to Do Everything and be Happy Your Step-by-step, Straight-talking Guide to Creating Happiness in Your Life

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 17/01/2013

Do you ever feel that you could be - well - just that little bit happier? This simple book reveals how you can be happy every day, through these surprisingly easy tips and advice. Whoever you are, whatever you do, and whatever is holding you back, you can do it AND be happy. How To Do Everything and Be Happy is a book for ordinary people, with ordinary lives. People who have been ambling along and wondering if things would be better if they were just a little different. It's a book for most people. It's a book for you. Peter Jones was once a normal guy. Sometimes frustrated, often dissatisfied, but always working hard towards a 'happily every after' he would share with his wife Kate. But when Kate died in Peter's arms after just 2 years and 3 months of marriage, he realised his days had been spent working towards a fantasy, instead of making every hour count. Alone, at rock bottom, Peter discovered that the secret to happiness is simple: it's about filling your time with the things that make you happy. If you've got a brain in your head, if you can pick up a pen, if you've got half an idea about what makes you smile, this book will show you how to do that. Peter's ideas are born from hard-won experience. Like Boxing Day: originally a day Peter and Kate spent together, without plans or restrictions, as an antidote to the chaos of Christmas. When Kate passed away, Peter continued the tradition by himself, doing whatever came to mind: it turned out to be the most refreshing, relaxing and fulfilling few hours he'd ever had. And its effects could be felt throughout the month.

This is Hip The Life of Mark Murphy

This is Hip The Life of Mark Murphy

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/03/2018

When Mark Murphy died in October 2015, the world lost one of the greatest jazz singer in history. Murphy was the last of his kind, a hipster of the Kerouac generation, who rejected the straight life of prosperity and numb consumerism. With a catalogue of more than 40 albums under his own name, Mark Murphy was a consummate improviser, who never sang a song the same way twice. He could have enjoyed a successful mainstream career in the vein of Mel Torme or Jack Jones. But his ambition was greater - to be an artist, to rebel against the commercial music industry and to carry the jazz vocal flame wherever it led him. Murphy was a master of scat and vocalese, of songwriting and the spoken word. He expanded the jazz singing repertoire, adding his own lyrics to instrumentals like John Coltrane's Naima, Freddie Hubbard's Red Clay, and Oliver Nelson's Stolen Moments. Unrivalled as an interpreter of ballads, he was able to express longing and regret to a degree lacking in any other jazz singer. For years he roamed the world, playing thousands of gigs. Rediscovered in the Eighties by a new audience of jazz dancers, and again in the 21st century by a digital generation who invited him to guest on their recordings, he remains a crucial though unjustly neglected figure in vocal jazz. This Is Hip is more than a biography: it also explores Murphy's innovative approaches both to singing and to the teaching of singers. Based on numerous interviews with those who knew him best, the book delves into a performing and recording career that spanned 60 years and earned him five Grammy nominations.

From Virtue to Venality

From Virtue to Venality

Author: Peter Jones Format: eBook Release Date: 16/05/2016

From virtue to venality examines the problem of corruption in British urban society and politics between 1930 and 1995. It is not a conventional study of the politics of local government since it seeks to place corruption in urban societies in a wider cultural context. The accounts of corruption in Glasgow - a British Chicago - as well as the major corruption scandals of John Poulson and T. Dan Smith show how Labour-controlled towns and cities were especially vulnerable to corrupt dealings. By contrast the case of Dame Shirley Porter in the City of Westminster in the late 1980s reveals that Conservative-controlled councils were also vulnerable since in London the stakes of the political struggle were especially intense. This book will be of special interest to students of history and politics and those who are concerned about the growth of corruption in British political culture.

Track Two Diplomacy in Theory and Practice

Track Two Diplomacy in Theory and Practice

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/09/2015

Track Two diplomacy consists of informal dialogues among actors such as academics, religious leaders, retired senior officials, and NGO officials that can bring new ideas and new relationships to the official process of diplomacy. Sadly, those involved in official diplomacy often have little understanding of and appreciation for the complex and nuanced role that Track Two can play, or for its limitations. And many Track Two practitioners are often unaware of the realities and pressures of the policy and diplomatic worlds, and not particularly adept at framing their efforts to make them accessible to hard-pressed officials. At the same time, those interested in the academic study of Track Two sometimes fail to understand the realities faced by either set of practitioners. A need therefore exists for a work to bridge the divides between these constituencies and between the different types of Track Two practice-and this book crosses disciplines and traditions in order to do just that. It explores the various dimensions and guises of Track Two, the theory and practice of how they work, and how both practitioners and academics could more profitably assess Track Two. Overall, it provides a comprehensive picture of the range of activities pursued under this title, to provoke new thinking about how these activities relate to each other, to official diplomacy, and to academe.

Open Skies Transparency, Confidence-Building, and the End of the Cold War

Open Skies Transparency, Confidence-Building, and the End of the Cold War

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/07/2014

This book recounts and analyzes the history of one of the best-kept diplomatic and security secrets of the last half-century-the Open Skies Treaty: a treaty that allows the U.S., the Russian Federation, and over 30 other signatories to fly unarmed reconnaissance aircraft over one another's territory. First proposed by President Eisenhower in 1955, shelved by succeeding administrations, re-launched by President George H. W. Bush in 1989, and finally ratified in 2002, the Treaty has been one of the most important security instruments of the 21st century-with over 1,000 flights logged to date providing confidence for the governments, intelligence communities, and militaries of former and potential adversaries. Written by a professor and former diplomat who was deeply involved in the negotiations of the Open Skies Treaty from 1989 to 1995, this book is a meticulous work of political history that explores how Open Skies affected, and was affected by, the extraordinary times of its negotiation-during which the Cold War ended and the Soviet Union collapsed. But it is also a potential blueprint for future applications of the Open Skies concept by providing insights into the role that cooperative aerial monitoring can play in helping to transform other difficult relationships around the world. As such it will serve as a negotiation handbook for diplomats, bureaucrats, and politicians and as a case-study textbook for IR students and students of diplomacy.

Veni, Vidi, Vici Everything you ever wanted to know about the Romans but were afraid to ask

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/05/2014

Fusing a lively and entertaining narrative with rigorous research, Veni, Vidi, Vici breaks down each major period into a series of concise nuggets that provide a fascinating commentary on every aspect of the Roman world - from plebs to personalities, sauces to sexuality, games to gladiators, poets to punishments, mosaics to medicine and Catullus to Christianity. Through the twists and turns of his 1250-year itinerary, Jones is a friendly and clear-thinking guide. In this book he has produced a beguiling and entertaining introduction to the Romans, one that vividly brings to life the people who helped create the world we live in today.

The Reception of David Hume In Europe

The Reception of David Hume In Europe

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/01/2013

The intellectual scope and cultural impact of British writers cannot be assessed without reference to their European 'fortunes'. These essays, prepared by an international team of scholars, critics and translators, record the ways in which David Hume has been translated, evaluated and emulated in different national and linguistic areas of Europe. This is the first collection of essays to consider how and where Hume's works were initially understood throughout Europe. They reflect on how early European responses to Hume relied on available French translations, and concentrated on his Political Discourses and his History, and how later German translations enabled professional philosophers to discuss his more abstract ideas. Also explored is the idea that continental readers were not able to judge the accuracy of the translations they read, nor did many consider the contexts in which Hume was writing: rather, they were intent on using what they read for their own purposes.

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/04/2011

This approach means you have to follow rules and instructions which are easy to forget or misunderstand. A complementary approach is to understand why plants respond to pruning, why only some plant shoots produce roots when taken as cuttings and why crop rotation can help manage disease in the vegetable garden.

Group Rights

Group Rights

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/03/2009

Nowadays, rights are frequently ascribed to groups distinguished by their nationality, culture, religion or language. Rights are also commonly ascribed to institutionalised groups, such as states, businesses, trade unions and private associations. Yet the ascription of rights to groups remains deeply controversial. Many people reject the very idea of group rights. Amongst those who do not, there is radical disagreement about which sorts of group might possess rights and why. Some believe that group rights threaten the freedom and well-being of individuals, while others argue that the rights of groups can complement them. Some claim that group rights can also be human rights; others find that claim incoherent. The contributions making up this volume wrestle with these and many other of the issues that surround group rights. This volume brings together twenty-four of the journal articles that have contributed most significantly to contemporary thinking on group rights.

A Surgical Revolution Surgery in Scotland, 1837-1901

A Surgical Revolution Surgery in Scotland, 1837-1901

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/10/2007

This is the story of some pioneers who, during the nineteenth century, transformed the practice of surgery. In the earlier years, an operation was a dreadful experience for both patient and surgeon, but by the 1840s the arrival of general anaesthesia offered relief from the agonies of surgery. However, the discomforts and dangers of infection in surgical wounds persisted until the 1860s, when Joseph Lister in Glasgow and Edinburgh began his life's work. He established the Antiseptic Principle which soon led to great advances in surgical practice. To this transformation surgeons in Scotland made outstanding contributions: Lister himself, Alexander Ogston in Aberdeen who discovered the cause of wound sepsis, William Macewen in Glasgow, who revealed previously unrecognised possibilities in orthopaedics and the surgery of the brain, and many others. In the sixty-four years of Queen Victoria's reign, these pioneers laid the foundations of safe, painless surgery. Today, we directly benefit from their dedicated work. A Surgical Revolution includes vivid descriptions of the patients treated, as well as the charismatic surgeons themselves. Drawing on a wealth of sources, its stories and anecdotes will appeal as much to the general reader as to historians, medics and scientists.

Liberty and Locality in Revolutionary France Six Villages Compared, 1760-1820

Liberty and Locality in Revolutionary France Six Villages Compared, 1760-1820

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 19/07/2007

This book examines the interface between the old and the new France in the period 1760-1820. It adopts an unusual 'comparative micro-historical' approach in order to illuminate the manner in which country dwellers cut themselves loose from the congeries of local societies that made up the Ancien Regime, and attached themselves to the wider polity of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic state. The apprehensions and ambitions of six groups of villagers located in different parts of the kingdom are explored in close-up across the span of a single adult lifetime. Contrasting experiences form a large part of the analysis, but the story is ultimately one of fusion around a set of values that no individual villager could possibly have anticipated, whether in 1750 or 1789. The book is at once an institutional, a social and a political history of life in the village in an epoch of momentous change.

Rediscovering mixed-use streets The contribution of local high streets to sustainable communities

Rediscovering mixed-use streets The contribution of local high streets to sustainable communities

Author: Peter Jones, Marion Roberts, Linda Morris Format: Paperback Release Date: 25/04/2007

Local urban high streets have frequently suffered from neglect in comparison to town centres and out-of-town retail. Yet they have the potential to meet contemporary policy aspirations with regard to sustainability, social inclusion and place making. Rediscovering mixed-use streets is the first in-depth investigation of local mixed-use high streets. Drawing on case-studies in three different locations in England, the report provides a wealth of data and findings produced from a variety of sources, both quantitative and qualitative. In particular, the report offers a comprehensive view of local high streets, from the point of view of transport, local residents, visitors, businesses and practitioners; provides a series of suggestions for their improvement and demonstrates how local high streets belong to future sustainable communities. Providing a significant contribution to current interest in mobility, urban design and social inclusion, the findings have particular relevance for 'Sustainable Communities', 'Cleaner, Safer, Greener', and 'Place Matters' policies. The study will be of interest to policy makers and practitioners involved in the making and managing of streets and those with an interest in regeneration.

The Reception of David Hume in Europe

The Reception of David Hume in Europe

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/12/2005

The intellectual scope and cultural impact of British writers cannot be assessed without reference to their European 'fortunes'. These essays, prepared by an international team of scholars, critics and translators, record the ways in which David Hume has been translated, evaluated and emulated in different national and linguistic areas of Europe. This is the first collection of essays to consider how and where Hume's works were initially understood throughout Europe. They reflect on how early European responses to Hume relied on available French translations, and concentrated on his Political Discourses and his History , and how later German translations enabled professional philosophers to discuss his more abstract ideas. Also explored is the idea that continental readers were not able to judge the accuracy of the translations they read, nor did many consider the contexts in which Hume was writing: rather, they were intent on using what they read for their own purposes. The Reception of British Authors in Europe series includes literary and political figures, as well as philosophers, historians and scientists. Each volume provides new research on the ways in which selected authors have been translated, published, distributed, read, reviewed and discussed in Europe.

Imagist Poetry

Imagist Poetry

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 29/03/2001

Imagism was a brief, complex yet influential poetic movement of the early 1900s, a time of reaction against late nineteenth-century poetry which Ezra Pound, one of the key imagist poets, described as `a doughy mess of third-hand Keats, Wordsworth ... half-melted, lumpy'. In contrast, imagist poetry, although riddled with conflicting definitions, was broadly characterized by brevity, precision, purity of texture and concentration of meaning: as Pound stated, it should `use no superfluous word, no adjective, which does not reveal something ... it does not use images as ornaments. The image itself is the speech'. It was this freshness and directness of approach which means that, as Peter Jones says in his invaluable Introduction, `imagistic ideas still lie at the centre of our poetic practice'.

Status Quo!Still for those who enjoy a challenge, the puzzles do get harder as you work your way through the book, ending up with some really fiendish ones. There are still lots of jokes along the way.

An Intelligent Person's Guide to Classics

An Intelligent Person's Guide to Classics

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/10/1999

Peter Jones argues in this book that it is the power, scope and intrinsic fascination of their ideas that makes the Greeks and Romans so important and influential. For over 2,000 years these ideas, many formulated by them (as far as we can tell) for the first time, have gripped western imagination and been instrumental in the way we think about the world. The book gives a succinct account of what is meant by the term 'Classics' and how knowledge of the Greeks and the Romans has been transmitted to us today, before launching out onto a wide-ranging selection of topics spanning the millennia which give some indication of the astonishing intellectual, political and literary achievements of the classical world. The book ends with a brief scream at those responsible for the education of our young today.

America and the British Labour Party The Special Relationship at Work

America and the British Labour Party The Special Relationship at Work

Author: Peter Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/12/1997

Anglo-American relations have long been discussed in terms of there being a special relationship between the two countries. Peter Jones examines this relationship since 1945 with regard to the functioning of the Labour Party. Since the end of World War II, some elements in the British Labour Party were ideologically opposed to a special relationship. A leading question now is whether Labour's anti-Americanism of the 1980's will be submerged by New Labour? This work examines the policies of Labour governments, the points of agreement and difference since 1945 between party leaders, activists, workers and supporters, and looks at the future policies the Labour government might pursue in relation to the United States.

The French Revolution in Social and Political Perspective

The French Revolution in Social and Political Perspective

Author: Peter Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 02/08/1996

Every year no fewer than 2,000 items are published on the French Revolution. Anyone approaching the subject has immediately to confront the difficulty of choosing what to read. This is exacerbated by the shifting contours of the subject itself. Traditional political and diplomatic history has faded under the pressure from social and economic historians, but now they are challenged, in turn, by the rapid growth of intellectual, cultural and gendered history. The purpose of this Reader is not to impose order where there is none but, rather, to capture the range of activities in which historians are engaged. Constructed according to a broadly 'social' and 'political' perspective, it tries to identify those books and articles that may come to be seen as key contributions to the subject. There are five thematic sections: Interpretations and Debates; Socio-Cultural Approaches; Gender in the Public Sphere; Revolutionary Politics; The Crowd, Terror and Counter-Terror.
