Courtesans
Hickman, Katie,
ISBN: 9780007174171
Harper Collins Publishers, London, United Kingdom, 2003. 1st Edition
 Soft cover Soft cover. Very Good/. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 363 pages. This book is in very good or better condition. It has no tears to the pages and no pages are missing from the book. The spine of the book is in strong condition. The front cover has some very minor bumps and marks indicating previous use but overall is in really nice, tight condition. Items are in stock and will be shipped same day or next business day directly from our Australian address. SYNOPSIS: During the course of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries a small group of women rose from impoverished obscurity to positions of great power, independence and wealth. In doing so they took control of their lives - and those of other people - and made the world do their will. Men ruined themselves in desperate attempts to gain and retain a courtesan's favours, but she was always courted for far more than sex. In an age in which women were generally not well educated she was often unusually literate and literary, courted for her conversation as well as her physical company. Courtesans were extremely accomplished, and exerted a powerful influence as leaders of fashion and society. They were not received at Court, but inhabited their own parallel world - the demi-monde - complete with its own hierarchies, etiquette and protocol. They were queens of fashion, linguists, musicians, accomplished at political intrigue and, of course, possessors of great erotic gifts. Even to be seen in public with one of the great courtesans was a much-envied achievement. In Courtesans Katie Hickman, author of the bestselling Daughters of Britannia, focuses on the exceptional stories of five outstanding women. Sophia Baddeley, Elizabeth Armistead, Harriette Wilson, Cora Pearl and Catherine Walters may have had very different personalities and talents, but their lives exemplify the dazzling existence of the courtesan.

SYNOPSIS: In this boldest book since Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, Bishop John Shelby Spong offers a compelling view of the Gospels as thoroughly Jewish tests.Spong powerfully argues that many of the key Gospel accounts of events in the life of Jesus-from the stories of his birth to his physical resurrection-are not literally true. He offers convincing evidence that the Gospels are a collection of Jewish midrashic stories written to convey the significance of Jesus. This remarkable discovery brings us closer to how Jesus was really understood in his day and should be in ours. Quantity Available: 1. Category: General, General; ISBN: 0060675578.

SYNOPSIS: From the Civil Wars to the Second World War, the British army proved to be the most successful and effective throughout the world. This is an original and chronological insight into the full history and role of the regimental British officer. Clayton describes how evolving national history, developments in battlefield technology, and changing concepts in leadership theory and practice all contributed to the changing attitudes and triangular relationship of the officer, soldier and the nation which pays. The British Officer further explores the world of the 'professional' officers engineers, intelligence, doctors, veterinary surgeons, chaplains, transport and logistics, and looks at how these were all critical support to the battle. The personal memoirs and biographies, and autobiographies of officers concerning their regimental service years and record, shed light onto who these officers were, where they came from and what motivated them to join the British army. This is an original, compelling and personal account of British Officers. Quantity Available: 1. Category: General, General; ISBN: 0582894093. ISBN/EAN: 9780582894099.

Bruised in love by her faithless Irish husband, Isabel Dalhousie is a connoisseur of intimate moral issues: she edits a philosophical journal and spends a great deal of her time considering how to improve the lives of those around her. There is her housekeeper Grace, whose future she must secure; her niece Cat, who is embarking on a new relationship with a dubious workaholic mummy's boy; and even an American couple newly arrived in Edinburgh on a tour. And then there is Jamie, Cat's ex-boyfriend, a handsome, gifted musician fourteen years Isabel's junior, with whom she is slowly and hopelessly falling in love. Intensely thoughtful and consistently entertaining, THE RIGHT ATTITUDE TO RAIN is shot through with compassion and unassuming intelligence. Quantity Available: 1.
