Die Wasser unter der Erde

Die Wasser unter der Erde

Author: John Moore Format: eBook Release Date: 15/12/2017

Wie die Gefahr mit dem geheimnisvollen Steigen und Fallen der Wasser unter der Erde von Doddington anschwillt und abklingt, so bestimmt das Auf und Ab der Geschichte zwischen dem Zweiten Weltkrieg und der Suez-Krise das Schicksal der Menschen dieses groangelegten Familien- und Zeitromans. Ob sich Sir Ferdo vor dem Verfall seines Besitzes in den Alkohol fluchtet, ob Lady Janet, seine Frau, in ihrem Tagebuch einer glanzvollen Epoche nachtrauert oder ob ihrer strahlend schonen Tochter Susan der Sprung in eine neue Zeit gelingt - John Moore hat die Gestalten dieses herrlichen Romans mit tiefem menschlichem Verstandnis gezeichnet und in der Schilderung von Gartenfesten, Fuchs- und Fasanenjagden die Weite der englischen Landschaft in unvergelicher Weise eingefangen.

The Age of Treason

The Age of Treason

Author: John Moore Format: Paperback Release Date: 20/06/2016

First and foremost, The Age of Treason examines the political situation in the eastern European nation of Ukraine - exploring how the events of 2013-15 came about; who was involved; why they were involved and how the nature of the conflict and those engaging in it was reported by the Western Media. Away from this centralised analysis, the work investigates the political outlook of Great Britain: the state of its two most popular political parties; whether its ties to the European Union carry any merit; where its present social and cultural makeup may lead it & whether there is any merit in the processes of devolving powers to regional bodies. In positing tough questions such as - Can our media be trusted to present to us a balanced view of events abroad? Is there any worth to voting at elections? Where does multiculturalism lead? Is Scottish Independence inevitable? - tough conclusions are reached. John Moore attended university in Southampton and possesses qualifications in Media and Film Studies.

Together, they present a fascinating insight into how Glasgow has changed and developed over the last 500 years, and will appeal to all those with an interest in Glasgow and Scottish history, as well as those interested in urban history, architectural history, town planning and the history of maps.
