The Jowett Bradford: Jowett's Unsung Hero
The Jowett Bradford was rushed into production in 1946 as a stop-gap model pending the launch of the all-new Javelin saloon, which its young designer, Gerald Palmer, had been working on since 1942. It was based on the 1938 8 hp commercial and was basically a pre-war design in every respect. It was, however, very popular with farmers and small businesses such as bakers, greengrocers, fishmongers and drapers etc., as it was economical, cheap, rugged and simple to work on. It was powered by the flat-twin horizontally-opposed 1005 cc engine, which was basically the same as the one fitted to the first prototype Jowett in 1906 with minor improvements, it was so antiquated when compared to the new Javelin saloon Jupiter sports car. The Bradford was expected to be dropped from the range in 1951 but this never happened and remained in production right up to the closure of the factory in 1954 when Jowett's ceased trading. Ironically, it was the largest selling model that Jowett's ever produced with almost 40,000 being built.

The Gulf of Mexico: A Maritime History
The Gulf of Mexico: A Maritime History presents the first such narrative of the earth's tenth largest body of water. In this beautifully written and illustrated volume, John S. Sledge explores the people, ships, and cities that have made the Gulf's human history and culture so rich. Many famous figures who sailed the Gulf's viridian waters are highlighted, including Ponce de Leon, Robert Cavelier de La Salle, Francis Drake, Jean Laffite, Tyrone Power, Richard Henry Dana, Libbie Custer, Elizabeth Agassiz, Ernest Hemingway, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, as well as Charles Dwight Sigsbee, at the helm of the doomed Maine. But Sledge also introduces a fascinating and diverse array of people connected to maritime life in the Gulf, including Mesoamerican pyramid builders, Spanish conquistadores, French pirates, Creole women, Cajun fishermen, African American stevedores, British jack-tars, and Greek sponge divers.Gulf events of global historical importance are detailed, such as the only defeat of armed and armored steamships by wooden sailing vessels, the first accurate deep-sea survey and bathymetric map of any ocean basin, the development of shipping containers by a former truck driver frustrated with antiquated loading practices, and the worst environmental disaster in American annals. Occasionally shifting focus ashore, Sledge explains how people representing a gumbo of ethnicities built some of the world's most exotic cities--Havana, way station for conquistadores and treasure-filled galleons; New Orleans, the Big Easy, famous for its beautiful French Quarter, Mardi Gras, and relaxed morals; and oft-besieged Veracruz, Mexico's oldest city, founded in 1519 by Hernan Cortes. Throughout history the residents of these cities and their neighbors along the littoral have struggled with challenges both natural and human-induced--devastating hurricanes, frightening epidemics, catastrophic oil spills, and conflicts ranging from dockside brawls to pirate raids, foreign invasion, civil war, and revolution. In the modern era the Gulf has become critical to energy Production, fisheries, tourism, and international trade, even as it is threatened by pollution and climate change. The Gulf of Mexico: A Maritime History is a work of verve and sweep that illuminates both the risks of life on the water and the riches that come from its bounty.

American Light Trucks and Utility Vehicles, 1967-1989: Every Model, Year by Year
Long thought of as vehicles for farmers and delivery carriers, the truck's role in American society changed dramatically with the advent of mid-20th century suburbia. Households became accustomed to owning two vehicles, perhaps even having one for fun and adventure, like an off-road International Scout or Ford Bronco. The truck transformed from strictly a workhorse into pickups and vans that could meet any consumer need, from utility to sport to luxury, culminating in a worthy replacement for the family car. This book tracks the development year by year, providing statistical and pricing information and listing features and options available for many light-duty vehicles.

Northern Counties Buses During and After Deregulation
From its formation in 1919 in Wigan, Lancashire, Northern Counties Motor & Engineering Company Limited grew to become one of Britain's most prominent bus builders. From independent operators both large and small, through to the municipal sector, the British Electric Traction and Scottish Motor Traction groups and the large PTE fleets, their coachwork appeared throughout the land. In this book, Howard Wilde focuses on the later years, with photographs from the late 1980s onwards, showing Northern Counties-bodied buses at work in various locations across the country. Some of these show buses as they were when new; others depict the colourfully varied second-hand scene that this deregulated era fostered. The selection provides a fascinating insight into the state of the British bus industry at the time, as well as paying tribute to this well-loved and much-missed coachbuilder.

Range Rover Sport 2005-2013: The Complete Story
When the Range Rover Sport was launched in 2005, it was aimed at a new group of customers who in many cases would never have considered a Land Rover product before. These customers wanted and could afford a luxurious vehicle that was expensive to run; but they also wanted a very personalized vehicle that did not have the rather grand and conservative connotations of the full-size Range Rover. Brasher and more glamorous than its older sibling, the Sport was soon adopted by celebrities and others who expected to be noticed. Range Rover Sport - The Complete Story is the first book devoted specifically to the first-generation Range Rover Sport. It tells the story behind the development and launch of the vehicle; it explains the market reaction, including contemporary press reviews; provides details of each model with technical specification tables and colour and trip options; lists production figures and VIN identification and dating; details prices and sales figures for the UK, USA and Canada and finally, includes a useful chapter on buying and owning.

Leyland Double-Decker Buses
From demonstrating a petrol-engined double-decker at the 1905 Commercial Motor Show to building huge 100-seat Olympians for the overseas market, the Bus and Coach Division of Leyland built thousands of vehicles for markets all over the world. At the forefront of vehicle design and development, Leyland produced ground-breaking vehicles such as the Atlantean, the UK's first production rear-engined double decker bus. Through acquisition and merger, the majority of British vehicle manufacturers ended up under the Leyland banner, resulting in the creation of the mighty British Leyland Motor Corporation, whose fall subsequent from grace has been widely documented elsewhere. This, the third in a series of books showcasing the products of the passenger division of Leyland since 1960, concentrates on double-deck buses and coaches and includes such mythological giants as the Atlantean, Olympian and Titan among others. It contains 180 photographs, most of which are in colour, all with informative text and captured when the vehicles were in their operating heyday.

Storm Over Europe: Allied Bombing Missions in the Second World War
Following the Battle of France in 1940, British Bomber Command launched its response to the then-almighty Wehrmacht. Sadly, its beginnings were not at all promising: its resources were limited and the twin-engined aircraft in service had a very limited load capacity, as well as being vulnerable to the Luftwaffe. The progressive entry into service of the great four-engined planes would change the situation, but the great problem of night time raids, such as correctly identifying targets and a precise launching of the bombs, would never be adequately resolved. Bomber Command's highly controversial bombing tactics, under the firm hand of Arthur 'Bomber' Harris, continued to develop until the very end of the war, creating a weapon of devastation and terror. Meanwhile, in 1942 the Eighth American Air Force began a campaign of day time bombing raids on targets in continental Europe that would last until the end of the war. Flying in increasingly larger formations, initially without any fighter escort, the B-17 flying fortresses and the big B-24 Liberators were up against the aggressive German aircraft, who were forced to develop adequate tactics in order to deal with the enormous defensive firepower of the American planes. It would not be until the entry into service of the long-range escort fighters, especially the formidable P-51 Mustang, that the Luftwaffe finally found itself at a distinct disadvantage. Unlike the devastating and bloody night time campaign launched by Bomber Command, the American bombers were determined to demonstrate that precision bombing was possible on selected, strategic targets, which would stifle the economy and the German war effort, as well as minimizing civilian casualties.

Better Buses, Better Cities: How to Plan, Run, and Win the Fight for Effective Transit
Imagine a bus system that is fast, frequent, and reliable, what would that change about where you live? Buses can and should be the cornerstone of urban transportation. They offer affordable mobility and can connect citizens with every aspect of their lives. But in the UK, and US they have long been an afterthought in budgeting and planning. With a compelling narrative and actionable steps, Better Buses, Better Cities inspires us to fix the bus. Transport expert Steven Higashide shows us what a successful bus system looks like with real-world stories of reform, such as Houston redrawing its bus network overnight, and San Francisco revamping its boarding procedures. Higashide shows how to marshal the public in support of better buses and how new technologies can keep buses on time and make complex transit systems understandable. Higashide argues that better bus systems will create better cities for all citizens. The consequences of subpar transport services fall most heavily on vulnerable members of society. Transport systems should be planned to be inclusive and provide better service for all. These are difficult tasks that require institutional culture shifts; doing all of them requires resilient organisations and transformational leadership. Better bus service is key to making our cities better for all citizens. Better Buses, Better Cities describes how decision-makers, philanthropists, activists, and public agency leaders can work together to make the bus a win in any city.

The book, which offers an analysis of KLM's many ups and downs, is richly illustrated with photos, aviation-related memorabilia and objects that tell a story. This is the official centenary publication for aviation aficionados and everyone else who harbours warm feelings for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. KLM is the world's oldest airline still operating under its original name. Today, with a workforce of 30,000 people, KLM transports 30 million passengers a year. 2019 marks its 100th anniversary. This is a unique milestone in aviation history. But how exactly did the national pride of the Netherlands manage to survive for ten decades? This question and many more are answered in five themed chapters, in which text and images transport readers through 100 years of KLM history. What began with a single route, developed into a global network, but how exactly was this developed? How does a company take on its rivals in an unpredictable economic environment? And how do you keep convincing people to fly KLM? Over the past 100 years, KLM evolved into a dynamic multinational; a major player in the global air transport industry.

Through Adversity: The Story of Life in the RFC and RAF Through Three Operational Pilots
How did the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) 'cavalry of the air' transform into the strategic RAF of the Cold War? The flying lives of these three pilots combine across the years to illustrate how it happened. Trained on Bristol Boxkites in 1912, Major Leonard Dawes helped shape the RFC in its infancy. Posted to France with BE2s, he saw action at the birth of battlefield reconnaissance and air fighting, then activated many new squadrons during the First World War. Joining the RAF in 1923, Group Captain Dickie Barwell became a fighter pilot and respected leader of men. As a Hurricane squadron commander, he routed the first major Luftwaffe air attack of the Second World War and flew with Bader's Wing in the Battle of Britain. While commanding RAF Biggin Hill, he flew combat operations over France before his death in a friendly-fire incident in 1942. Squadron Leader Brian Fern learned to fly at Ponca City, Oklahoma, in 1942, then trained hundreds of RAF bomber pilots during the Second World War. Post-war tours on Canberra bombers and spy flights in Chipmunks were followed by selection to the elite Valiant bomber force, where he became a leading exponent of in-flight refuelling, which finally gave the RAF its global reach. Combining these three stories into a narrative that explores the rise of the RAF through an era of dazzling technological breakthroughs and ever-changing operational requirements, Alastair Goodrum tells the story of a journey through adversity to the stars.

In Turbulent Skies: British Aviation Successes and Setbacks - 1945-1975
In 1945 confidence in British aviation was high, but it wasn't long before problems arose. The Brabazon Committee's ideas for civil aviation proved flawed while enforced cancellations restricted the advancement of military aircraft. De Havilland's audacious attempts to gain commercial advantage over its American competitors resulted in the flawed Comet, while Defence Minister Duncan Sandys turned his back prematurely against aircraft in favour of missiles. British aviation's small domestic market restricted the development of British civilian airliners and so failed to secure vital international sales. The country's indigenous helicopters and iconic Harrier jump jet were not fully exploited, while unrealistic performance requirements brought about the cancellation of TSR2. By the 1960s the gulf between the ideal and the possible was becoming only too apparent. Peter Reese thoughtfully explores how repeated financial crises combined with a lack of rigour and fatal self-satisfaction led British aviation to miss vital opportunities across this turbulent period in Britain's skies.

Hong Kong Buses
For many years a major importer of new British buses, the former colony, with its high-rise living, is dependent on public transport. As well as buses, trams ply the North Shore of Hong Kong Island, with a modern Mass Transit Railway (MTR) below the streets. Buses remain the prime mover with both Kowloon Motor Bus (KMB) and New World First Bus (NWFB) today's main players, with extensive fleets of tri-axle air conditioned double-deckers. In the past, things were very different with fleets of Leyland deckers including rebodied Guy Arabs, former London Fleetlines and other front-engined double-deckers. With space for advertising at a premium any buses act as mobile billboards for both local and major sponsors. Gary Seamarks been lucky enough to visit on several occasions between 1993 and 2011 to view the changing scene, with images all in colour. Some redundant buses exported worldwide also feature.

Preserving Maritime America: A Cultural History of the Nation's Great Maritime Museums
The United States has long been dependent on the seas, but Americans know little about their maritime history. While Britain and other countries have established national museums to nurture their seagoing traditions, America has left that responsibility to private institutions. In this first-of-its-kind history, James M. Lindgren focuses on a half-dozen of these great museums, ranging from Salem's East India Marine Society, founded in 1799, to San Francisco's Maritime Museum and New York's South Street Seaport Museum, which were established in recent decades. Begun by activists with unique agendas -- whether overseas empire, economic redevelopment, or cultural preservation -- these museums have displayed the nation's complex interrelationship with the sea. Yet they all faced chronic shortfalls, as policymakers, corporations, and everyday citizens failed to appreciate the oceans' formative environment. Preserving Maritime America shows how these institutions shifted course to remain solvent and relevant and demonstrates how their stories tell of the nation's rise and decline as a commercial maritime power.

Autogiro Pioneer: The Life of Jack Richardson
'Autogiro Pioneer' is a vivid account of the varied life and adventures of Jack Richardson (1899-1987). The book is based on his memoirs, which have been edited by his son. In the 1930s he worked for Juan de la Cierva, the inventor of the Autogiro (the forerunner of the helicopter), and was the first person to obtain a commercial pilot's licence as an Autogiro pilot. This work involved (among other activities) several hazardous flights across Europe in all kinds of weather. In 1944 he learnt how to fly the new Sikorsky helicopters in the United States, and became the first fully-trained helicopter pilot in the British Army. In his later career with the Army and with Westland Aircraft he helped to develop the military and commercial uses of the helicopter, played a major role in the construction of the Heliport at Battersea, and was Chairman of The Helicopter Association. As a young man he had been a cavalry officer in the Ninth Lancers, and for seven years a successful orange farmer In South Africa. He was a keen racing skier and amateur painter. The book is illustrated with 100 pictures in black and white and in colour.

It seeks to explain the role of finance and the Finance Department in a non-technical way, so staff can appreciate the value of the department and its information resources, and see finance as an active contributor to the airline's operation. It concentrates on practical matters, explaining frequently used financial and accounting terms, how financial strategy works, the uses of various types of financial reporting, as well as what financial risk is and how it can be managed through the co-operation of finance and operating staff. Staff who understand the airline's finances and financial system are more likely to make decisions which align with the airline's strategy and objectives. They will also know how to use the financial information which is available. The book establishes a good foundation of financial knowledge for all staff. This book is recommended reading for new employees in airline finance and related areas, as well as those starting to move up the supervisory ladder in an airline.

Alfa Romeo Coupes & Spiders in Detail since 1945
Few marques inspire such enthusiasm as Alfa Romeo, and among its most celebrated jewels are undoubtedly its coupes and spiders, the sportiest members of an already sporty Alfa family. This book tells the full story of Alfa's two-door cars in the post-war era. It starts with the achingly handsome 6C 2500 and coachbuilt 1900s, followed by the glorious Giulietta Sprint, Spider and SZ. Then comes the host of Giulia models, from Bertone's Sprint GT and Pininfarina's Duetto to the racing GTA and TZ. Add in some rare V8s - 33 Stradale and Montreal - plus the Alfetta GT and the monstrous SZ/RZ, and Alfa's rich heritage is indisputable. It's all clearly detailed by a true authority on Italian cars, Chris Rees, editor of Auto Italia.

Fellow Travellers: Communist Trade Unionism and Industrial Relations on the French Railways, 1914-1939
Fellow Travellers examines the shifting practices and strategies adopted by Communist militants as they sought to build and maintain support on the railways. In a period in which the Communist party struggled to establish a foothold in many French workplaces, activists on the railways bucked the trend and set down deep and lasting roots of support. They maintained this support even through the sectarian period of the Comintern's shift to class against class, deepening their participation within railway industrial relations and gaining the experience of engagement with managers and state officials upon which they would build during the years of the Popular Front. Here France's railway employees joined alongside their fellow workers in shaping a new social contract for workers, extending the principle of democratic representation into the workplace. While the Popular Front experiment proved shortlived, its influence was long lasting. In the post Liberation period, the key tenets of the Popular Front experience re-emerged within the nationalised SNCF, shaping the particular character of railway industrial relations - the peculiar mix of collaboration and hostile confrontation between management and workforce that continues to make the French railways one of the most contested sectors of the modern French economy. An Open Access edition of this book will be made available on publication.

Network Greater Manchester
Greater Manchester covers an area of 493 square miles and is a diverse part of North West England, it is home to 2.8 million people. At its heart is the vibrant and ever-changing City of Manchester, the large conurbation having borders with Lancashire, West Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Merseyside. It has a complex, varied and historic heavy rail network that contains ninety-six stations on a 142 mile network, part of which was the first passenger railway in the World. Greater Manchester is also home to the largest light rail system in the UK - The Metrolink Tram system has a current network of 57 miles and 93 stops, its expansion has aided some traffic reduction in an area that has the highest percentage of Motorway network than any other county in the UK. Network Greater Manchester is a detailed photographic journey over the system that chronicles the constantly changing scene since the late 1970's to the present day and illustrates how the services, rolling stock and infrastructure have changed with the passage of time.

London Routemasters in the Late 1970s and Early 1980s
The Routemaster is the iconic London bus, recognised around the world. This pictorial account features previously unseen pictures of the ubiquitous RM, far and wide throughout the network during the period 1976-83, which included the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee, when twenty-five of the type were specially painted in an all-over silver colour scheme. By the end of this period buses formerly allocated to the country garages had mainly gravitated back to the central area, some of which saw further passenger service while others were converted to driver training buses. It was also around this time that London Transport began to dispose of their RMs in significant numbers.

Buses in Lancashire
The boundaries of the current county of Lancashire were established in 1974 when the Furness district was lost to the newly formed Cumbria. Meanwhile Merseyside and Greater Manchester gobbled up much of the southern portion of the original county. However, some parts of the former West Riding of Yorkshire were gained. The major bus operator was, for many years, Ribble Motor Services. After sale it became part of the Stagecoach Group, though the East Lancashire operations were sold on to Blazefield, which later went to Transdev. Back in the 1970s many municipalities in Lancashire operated their own buses and these provided a great variety of vehicles and liveries. Most of the council-owned companies were eventually sold off leaving just one - Blackpool - with its large bus fleet and a modern tram system. Until the 1986 deregulation of the bus industry, there were very few independents running stage services in the county. There were just Fishwick's smart green buses around Leyland, Preston and Chorley. This company ceased trading in 2015, but others have entered the market, such as Pilkington's in the Accrington area. John Law has been photographing the county's buses since 1974, building up a massive collection of images. He has put together the best and most interesting of these within this book.
