Thrillers that race from the very first page ´Felix Francis´ novels gallop along splendidly´ Jilly Cooper ´From winning post to top of the bestseller lists´ Sunday Times Harrison Foster is a lawyer by training but works as a crisis manager for a London firm that specializes in such matters. Summoned to Newmarket after a fire in the Chadwick Stables slaughters six very valuable horses, including the short-priced favourite for the Derby, Harry (as he is known) finds there is far more to the ´simple´ fire than initially meets the eye. For a start, human remains are found amongst the equestrian ones in the burnt-out shell. All the stable staff are accounted for, so who is the mystery victim? Harry knows very little about horses, indeed he positively dislikes them, but he is thrust unwillingly into the world of Thoroughbred racing where the standard of care of the equine stars is far higher than that of the humans who attend to them. The Chadwick family are a dysfunctional racing dynasty, with the emphasis being on the nasty. Resentment between the generations is rife and sibling rivalry bubbles away like volcanic magma beneath a thin crust of respectability. Harry represents the Middle-Eastern owner of the Derby favourite and, as he delves deeper into the unanswered questions surrounding the horse´s demise, he ignites a fuse that blows the volcano sky-high, putting him in grave jeopardy. Can Harry solve the riddle before he is overcome by the toxic emissions from the eruption and is bumped off by the fallout? ´As usual with a Francis, once I opened the book, I didn´t want to put it down... Felix´s resolution is darker and more shocking than his father would ever have contemplated, but reflects grittier times and changing tastes in fiction. Now, what am I going to do for the next 12 months until the next one?´ Country Life ´The latest annual offered from Felix Francis shows he has largely escaped from the shadow of his late father... He has become his own man as a purveyor of murder mysteries´ The Racing Post Praise for Felix Francis´s novels: ´The Francis flair is clear for all to see´ Daily Mail ´From winning post to top of the bestseller list, time after time´ Sunday Times ´The master of suspense and intrigue´ Country Life ´A tremendous read´ Woman´s Own
Thanks to environmental pollutants Iodine deficiency has become a worldwide epidemic. Everybody knows pollutants cause cancer. What they don´t know is that these pollutants cause a deficiency that can make us sick, fat and stupid. Iodized salt--supposedly a solution to iodine deficiency-- is actually a nutritional scam which provides a false sense of security. The Iodine Crisis explains how we became so deficient, then shows the time-tested solution to reversing many conditions. Lynne Farrow reveals how she and thousands of other patient-activists changed their lives by researching and using iodine. Frequently Asked Questions cover everything you need to know about iodine. The proof of iodine´s benefit is demonstrated by the dramatic case studies shared in this book. The Iodine Crisis has been translated into seven languages and changed millions of lives. People are learning that the current iodine deficiency crisis corresponds to a dramatic rise of breast, thyroid and prostate cancer.
The debates that began at St Mary´s Church, Putney on 28 October 1647 pioneered the liberal, democratic settlement in England: a written constitution, universal suffrage, freedom of conscience and equality before the law. Four centuries later, the 2016 Brexit referendum raised fundamental questions concerning the constitution of the United Kingdom. Following the High Court ruling that the government, under a centuries-old Royal Prerogative, does not have the power to trigger Article 50 to leave the EU, MPs have claimed that we are entering a full-blown constitutional crisis. The parallels between 1647 and 2017 are striking. Government has been toppled, a new leadership has emerged, and the two main parties are in a state of internecine warfare. Parliamentarians do not understand how to reconcile their duty to act for the common good and the result of the referendum. The people are divided and the four nations comprising the United Kingdom are at odds. This volume brings together some of the greatest public intellectuals of their generation to debate the constitutional crisis at the heart of today´s politics. Featuring contributions from A.C. Grayling, Joshua Rozenberg, Onora O´Neill, Will Hutton, Timothy Garton Ash and Michael Mansfield, this book provides important new perspectives on the most important political debate of the twenty-first century.
Nancy Fraser has acquired international reputation by her powerful integration of feminist issues into the critique of capitalist society. She has corrected, thus, some shortcomings of the Marxist tradition and the School of Frankfurt. The present volume documents a workshop at the University of Wuppertal dedicated to the recent developments of her thought. Her analysis of the actual crisis of Capitalism focusses the interrelation of economy, ecology, polity and society. Colleagues from various disciplines are taking a stand on crucial topics and texts of Fraser´s oeuvre in the last decade. Fraser is responding to each paper.
