Scotland's Secret History (Paperback)

4. Scotland's Secret History (Paperback)

Ref: 9781780273037

Scotland's Secret History: The Illicit Distilling and Smuggling of Whisky

Illicit distilling in Scotland was seen as a 'right of man' at the end of the 17th century. Attempts to enforce excise duty on the spirit were therefore met with resistance, ranging from riots to more and more ingenious ways of avoiding paying tax.

In this book and Charles MacLean and Daniel MacCannell give a fascinating insight into the day-to-day struggles that led to the increase in illicit distilling from the mid-1600s, then to its eventual demise in the early twentieth century. The Cabrach, a wild and sparsely populated part of Aberdeenshire, became renowned for its production of illicit whisky. Local inhabitants mixed farming and distilling with great skill, creating a network of stills and distribution to evade customs. Using new research first-hand historical accounts and official records, the authors show how spirits from this small parish were made and travelled far and wide, across the border to England and across the North Sea to France, firing up revolution and lending solidarity to the struggles of the Jacobites.

Features: Making Whisky (Dennis McBain), The Jacobite Legacy (Murray Pittock), The Bard and the Bottle (David Purdie), The Dram In Folklore (Tom McKean), A Smuggler's Paradise (David Ferguson); Banff The Smuggler's Royal Burgh (Jay Wilson), Scotland's Lost Distilleries (Brian Townsend).

The School of Hard Knox: The Autobiography of Archie Knox (Hardcover)

5. The School of Hard Knox: The Autobiography of Archie Knox (Hardcover)

Ref: 9781909715554

The School of Hard Knox chronicles the life and career of one of the most admired and respected coaches ever to grace Scottish football, Archie Knox.

After his early days at Forfar Athletic, Archie became a key ally for Alex Ferguson at Aberdeen and Manchester United. Together they won the Scottish league title, Scottish Cup and, of course, on a never to be forgotten night in Gothenburg in 1983, they led the Dons to European Cup Winners' Cup glory against the mighty Real Madrid.

FA Cup success followed with United as Archie played a vital role in resurrecting the fortunes of a sleeping giant at Old Trafford. On his return to Scotland, he assisted Walter Smith - a one-time teammate at Dundee United - to historic triumphs at Rangers. They clinched Nine in a Row, won the Treble and came within 90 minutes of reaching the first-ever Champions League final.

After moving to Everton, Archie also had spells with the Scotland national team as well as Motherwell and an emotional return to Aberdeen with Craig Brown. From Willie Miller and Alex McLeish, Bryan Robson and Ryan Giggs, Paul Gascoigne and Brian Laudrup, Archie has worked with some of the greatest players ever to grace British football. Through his own words and those who witnessed his wit, his work and his wisdom, this is the untold story of a remarkable career.

The Four Horsemen (Paperback)

10. The Four Horsemen (Paperback)

Ref: 9781846973840

After saving the Venetian Republic in Ascension, reluctant spy Alvise Marangon returns in this second adventure, played out once again in the carnivalesque atmosphere of eighteenth-century Venice.

After Alvise is arrested in a tavern brawl, he is summoned to meet the Missier Grande, head of the city's powerful secret service. Rather than being expelled from the city, he is coerced into a top-secret investigation of the mysterious death of one of the service's agents. This death seems to be connected with a mysterious secret society - The Four Horsemen - whose roots go back to the fall of Constantinople, or perhaps even earlier.

But as he oversteps the bounds in his investigations, Alvise finds that he has not only The Four Horsemen against him but also the authorities of the Republic itself. And so he is forced to go on the run, becoming both the seeker and the sought, amid the tangle of Venice's back-streets and canals and the outlying islands of the lagoon.

Whiskies Galore (Hardcover)

11. Whiskies Galore (Hardcover)

Ref: 9781780274423

But Whiskies Galore is not your average whisky book. It is not simply a catalogue of distilleries, but a story of discovery and adventure. Join Ian Buxton on a personal journey across Scotland's islands, where he learns to fish with high explosives, ends up hurling his dinner into the sea, and comes face to face with a basking shark. Combining an expert's knowledge of whisky with a travel writer's fondness for anecdote, and with a keen description of place, he provides a special treat for all who love the islands' magical drams.

Storm in the Desert (Hardcover)

13. Storm in the Desert (Hardcover)

Ref: 9781780274522

Storm in the Desert: Britain's Intervention in Libya and the Arab Spring.

In this remarkable book, Mark Muller tells the story of British intervention in Libya and the Arab Spring from a unique civil society standpoint: he was there in Benghazi two weeks after the UN No-Fly Zone Resolution was passed, meeting with Rebel leaders to discuss how Western civil society might help them stabilise the country and resolve difficult legacy issues such as victim claims over Lockerbie and the supply of IRA Semtex.

In an age when Western governments have become risk averse and distrusted in the Middle East, Muller documents how non-state mediators, non-governmental organisations, journalists, artists and like-minded diplomats, such as assassinated US Ambassador Chris Stevens, explore ways to support democratic movements and promote human rights in one of the world's most turbulent regions.

Storm in the Desert describes a dramatic story of revolution and also the murky but sometimes inspiring role successive British governments have played in trying to contain conflict in the region. It gives a unique insight into the world of diplomacy and power politics and the way they impact upon ordinary human lives, suggesting that it is civil society not government that ultimately stabilises countries and unearths the truth about conflict and the ill-treatment of civilians at the hand of state forces.

Matt Tighe - Matt Tighe (CD)

14. Matt Tighe - Matt Tighe (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX395

Matt Tighe was born in South London, with an Irish and Trinidadian background. He first discovered his love of traditional music and the fiddle, listening to his parents' album collection: The Chieftains and Tom McConville & Pauline Cato, in particular, made a lasting impression.

After attending Cambridge Folk Festival and listening to traditional music live, he decided to learn the fiddle in earnest. Eight years on Matt is an active member of the folk scene in the UK, playing at festivals, clubs, and in sessions on a regular basis. He has been a finalist in the Danny Kyle Open Stage, at Celtic Connections in Glasgow and a semi-finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards.

Matt's style of fiddle playing is greatly influenced by the music of County Clare and his teachers Declan Crehan and Brendan Mulcaire, as well as the Scottish music gathered at Cambridge Folk Festival and on visits to Glasgow. He is currently studying Classical Performance with John Crawford at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.

This is a stunning album by a hugely talented fiddler, blending well with his invited session musicians. Brian McNeill described the final mixes as 'Brilliant' and coming from someone of his calibre, that is some recommendation.

In recording this his debut album at Watercolour Music in Ardgour, Matt was accompanied by some outstanding session musicians: Tad Sargent (bouzouki, guitar, mandocello, bodhran, piano & harmonium); Chris O'Malley (piano & harmonium); James Lindsay (double bass); Luke Daniels (melodeon); Jock Turner (shaker) and Brian McNeill (concertina). Brian also produced the album which was recorded and mastered by Nick Turner.

After the Dance: Selected Stories of Iain Crichton Smith

As a child Iain Crichton Smith was raised speaking Gaelic on the island of Lewis. At school in Stornoway he spoke English. Like many islanders before and since, his culture was divided: two languages and two histories entailing exile. His divided perspective delineated the tyranny of history and religion, of the cramped life of small communities, and gave him a compassionate eye for the struggle of women and men in a world defined by denials.

After the Dance proves that big themes - love, history, power, submission, death - can be addressed without the foil of irony and acquire resonance when given a local habitation and a voice that risks pure, humane, impassioned speech.

This new edition contains the story 'Home'.
