2010 Facsimile of 1908 Edition. Robert Baden-Powell was born in 1857 and served in the British Army in India, Afghanistan and, later, West and South Africa. In Scouting for Boys he mixed his love for the outdoors, and delight in play-acting, together with the games ethics of the Victorian public school, and processed these into a newly minted tradition, that is, scouting, which became Britain's most successful recreational export of the twentieth century. This book is the foundation document for scouting. Profusely illustrated.

The study of buildings—whether out of sheer interest or to assist planning decisions—is a branch of archaeology which is distinct from both archaeology and architectural history, yet allied to both. This book begins by providing background information about studying the basic materials used in a building's construction, such as stone, brick, or timber-framing. The author explains how various clues left by the builders can add to the historic background and use of the site, and explains how all these strands of information can be woven together to produce a detailed understanding of how any building has developed over the years. Over 100 illustrations and two invaluable appendices—typical examples of buildings and an illustrated glossary of terms—complete a handbook that has long been needed by professionals and amateurs alike.

Shalom Auslander was raised with a terrified respect for God. Even as he grew up, defying and eventually being cast out of his community, he could not find his way to a life in which he wasn’t locked in a daily struggle with Him. Foreskin’s Lament is a rich and fascinating portrait of a man grappling with his faith, his family and his community. ‘Bracing and witty . . . Never, frankly, can there have been a more blasphemous book . . . Foreskin’s Lament somehow expresses the ideas of Richard Dawkins in the tone of David Sedaris. You can read it for the humour, you can read it as reportage into a secretive and bizarre world, you can read it as a personal tale of triumph over adversity, or you can just read it for the misery. It doesn’t really matter. But do read it’ William Sutcliffe, Independent on Sunday ‘One of the funniest books I’ve ever read, killingly so’ Hilary Spurling, Observer ‘Exceptional . . . very, very funny’ Time Out ‘Painfully poignant and hilariously noir’ Jewish Chronicle ‘By turns hilarious and devastating . . . Few books are laugh-out-loud funny. This one is’ Naomi Alderman, Sunday Times ‘America’s hottest, funniest, most controversial young Jewish memoirist . . . blackly hilarious, groundbreaking’ The Times
