            Was Governor FitzRoy the man popular history would have us believe? Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy's tenure as Governor of New South Wales and Governor-General of Australia between 1846 and 1855 was plagued by rumour. Mention FitzRoy and he is either not remembered at all, remember...ed as the Governor who caused his wife's death or as a shameless womaniser. Are these damning comments justified? It was the time of Wentworth, Parkes and Lang, giant political figures in New South Wales' early history. FitzRoy's administration oversaw matters such as settlement of the contentious crown land issue and squatters' rights, discovery of gold, education and introduction of the railway. A man of the British Empire, he served firstly his King, then a young Queen Victoria as the Crown's Vice Regal representative at Prince Edward island, the Leeward Islands and finally, New South Wales. This commissioned biography portrays FitzRoy in a light not previously considered, from a personal, family oriented aspect, stretching from childhood to the battlefields of Waterloo. Going beyond the rumours set in motion in 1847, it reveals a worldly diplomat, a Governor who encouraged those around him to act on their beliefs.

            The Truth About French Women
             

            The Truth About French Women (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In France, criticizing oneselves is a national sport, even more important than football. But there's one thing every foreigner does need to understand if they ever plan to spend some time with a French person. Or even more dangerously, marry a French person. Or, pure madness, liv...e in France with lots of French persons. French people hate it when foreigners do criticize them. Immediately this provokes a strange physical phenomenon. The heart starts pumping a little bit faster, reminiscences of the Marseillaise are heard by their gallic ears, and they reach mentally for the sword. For years now, French women have become a target for all sorts of representations. In fact, the number of books written about French women is becoming a publishing market in itself. No year goes by without a new book about them. And yet, in spite of her reserves in differentiating French women from other women, Marie Le Moel found some aspects can't be so easily dismissed. Of course, women, and men, all around the world, share similarities. And yet, they remain a product of their environment. French environment, culture and rich history, has produced a certain type of men and women. It has produced, too, a certain type of relationship between the two genders, where seduction and games play, still now, an important part. And in order to better fight the stereotypes, one has to try to put the finger on what constitutes a modern French woman, and why she has become, for many, an example.
