The Creation of the American Soul
By John M. Barry
Roger Williams was the first to describe individual liberty in modern terms - a huge influence on men such as Oliver Cromwell, John Milton and John Locke. His story has a backdrop of intellectual, political, religious and social upheaval which led to the writing of the King James Bible, the civil war, revolution, and the beheading of the king of England. Influenced by the great jurist Edward Coke and his mortal enemy, Francis Bacon, Williams developed concepts of individual rights and limits on state power as well as an understanding of the world through evidence, rather than belief or predisposition. In this way, an 'altogether revolutionary' point of view was produced. At this time America saw efforts to establish a society based upon such beliefs. Award-winning author John M. Barry examines the origins of both the relationship between church and the state, and the balance between rights of the individual versus the power of the state. Williams insisted that there should be a wall of separation between the church and the state and that the government receive its power from and be controlled by its citizens.Banished and threatened by death for such views, Williams founded Providence, a society in Rhode Island, where he continued to shape his ideas - one hundred and fifty years before many of them were realised by Thomas Jefferson.

The British: The National Character Observed
By Pont (Graham Laidler)
A classic collection showing our national foibles, by the celebrated and much-loved cartoonist An assertion of the importance of tea. A keen interest in the weather. A fondness for laughing at your own anecdotes. A weakness for oak beams. A tendency to over-indulge dogs. The British haven't changed much since the 1930s when Pont's first witty and hilarious observations on the national character appeared in "Punch" magazine. Pont's plump rolling-pin wielding cooks and solar-topee'd imperialists capture a distinct moment in British inter-war history, but his observations of character are timeless. In the nursery, at the opera, or in the bath, in tweed or tennis whites or bowler hat, Pont conjures distinct, complete personalities with a few strokes of his pen. Charming, idiosyncratic and - above all - wonderfully funny, this unforgettable collection will bring Pont's extraordinary talent to a new generation in a beautiful single volume.
