            The sunlight and calm of the French Riviera have been a magnet for writers since the fourteenth century. The Cote d'Azur has provided the inspiration and setting for some of the greatest literature of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The French Riviera: A Literary Guide fo...r Travellers is a reader's journey along this fabled coast, from Hyeres and St. Tropez in the west to the Italian border in the east, introducing the lives and work of writers who passed this way, from distinguished Nobel laureates to new authors who found their voices there. Ted Jones's encyclopaedic work covers them all: writers such as Graham Greene and W. Somerset Maugham, who spent much of their lives there; F. Scott Fitzgerald and Guy de Maupassant, whose work it dominates; and the countless writers who simply lingered there, including Louisa M. Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, J. G. Ballard, Samuel Beckett, Arnold Bennett, William Boyd, Bertholt Brecht, Anthony Burgess, Albert Camus, Bruce Chatwin, Joseph Conrad, Charles Dickens, T. S. Eliot, Ian Fleming, Ernest Hemingway, Aldous Huxley, James Joyce, Rudyard Kipling, D. H. Lawrence, A. A.Milne, Vladimir Nabokov, Dorothy Parker, Sylvia Plath, Jean-Paul Sartre, George Bernard Shaw, Robert Louis Stevenson, Anton Tchekhov, Leo Tolstoy, Evelyn Waugh, H. G. Wells, Oscar Wilde, P. G. Wodehouse, Virginia Woolf and W. B. Yeats - and many others.

            We're doing philosophy now, and that means following the argument wherever it leads, like that time you chased a rabbit and ended up with your head stuck in a hole.' Monty was just like any other dog. A scruffy and irascible Maltese terrier, he enjoyed barking at pugs and sniffin...g at trees. But after yet another dramatic confrontation with the local Rottweiler, Anthony McGowan realises it's high time he and Monty had a chat about what makes him a good or a bad dog. Taking his lead from Monty's canine antics, McGowan takes us on a hilarious and enlightening jaunt through the major debates of philosophy. Will Kant convince Monty to stop stealing cheesecake? How long will they put up with Socrates poking holes in every argument? In this uniquely entertaining take on morality and ethics, the dutiful duo set out to uncover who if anyone has the right end of the ethical stick and can tell us how best to live one's life.

            Taranto to Trieste is an account of the author's fascinating journey to retrace the actual path of the 2nd New Zealand Division in Italy from its arrival in October 1943 until the end of the European war. Although a personal journey with personal reflections, the real story is ab...out the largely off-the-beaten track places which the troops passed through, what they saw and experienced along the way and, in some cases what they missed. To complement the Division's story, the historical context and military actions are explained with many maps as well as war-time photographs and colourful quotations from official military histories. As the author says, "There are many people of the post-war generation, and their children, with direct connections to the Italian campaign, who would like to know more about the small, mysterious places the Division passed through which appear in diaries, letters and on the back of photographs, but many of which do not appear on maps." The author's own photographs, descriptions of the places visited, the landscapes travelled and the roads followed will delight those wanting to follow in the footsteps of the 2nd Division in Italy.

            This book is dedicated to the old sail whalemen. They worked themselves, their ships and their crews very hard in winter in stormy cold seas south of New Zealand and across the Tasman, testing the very limits of sail whaling. Captain Bill McKillop brings Southland's whaling herit...age alive. He is a great writer, direct and simply worded. There is no exaggeration when he describes the dangers of climbing down cliffs to get seals, and the terror of attacking huge whales from a tiny fragile cockleshell boat, just the bald facts from his personal experience. That's enough. He was there, and he speaks with authority, adding a personal flavour not in better known works by Frank Bullen, Robert McNab and other southern writers. Captain Bill McKillop was the last of the sail whalers in Foveaux Strait, Fiordland and the southern islands. He was born at The Neck on Stewart Island in 1865, grew up in Another not-for-profit
