Drawing on an eclectic range of primary and secondary sources Chaplin examines the development of darts in the context of English society in the early twentieth century. He reveals how darts was transformed during the interwar years to become one of the most popular recreations in England, not just amongst working class men and, to a lesser extent, working class women but even (to some extent) among the middle and upper classes. This book assesses the social, economic and cultural forces behind this transformation. This work also considers the growth of the darts manufacturing industry and assesses the overall effect the growing popularity of darts had on interwar society and popular culture, with particular reference to the changing culture and form of the English public house. This original study will be of interest to sports historians, social historians, business historians, sociologists and sports scientists.

The Second Edition of PDC Darts covers the same details as the original book with current details of tournament winners and runners up on the PDC (Professional Darts Corporation) Tour. Besides the tournament results, analysis of the tournament history is provided. Provides details of players that have thrown the perfect leg, the highest average achieved during the history of the tournament, how many times a player has appeared in the final, and how many times a player has won the tournament. Majority of tournaments were cancelled due to the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020. To keep the tour viable, there were three Home Tour Championships staged until players could attend events in person. The book is to provide the reader and dart enthusiast more information on publications, links to web sites of dart manufacturers, County Darts Organisations, Professional Bodies and Organisations, dart stores, and Country Darts Organisations. This is not a comprehensive list but it begins the work of collating details of darts into one place instead of being scattered around the World Wide Web across many sites and publications. Disclaimer: Links to dart stores is for informational purposes. I have not been contacted by any of the stores to advertise. When I come across a dart store and the link is correct, I have included in list for dart enthusiasts. I hope you enjoy the book.

This book has been compiled to provide details of tournament winners and runners up of tournaments played in Eastern Europe and Baltic States. Every effort has been used to identify winners and runners up of tournaments and in some cases there will be results "missing". If these can be identified they will be included in another edition of this book in the future. There maybe errors with names being mispelt and that ladies surnames may have changed but I've put in an enormous time and effort to correctly record the results of the tournaments. There are probably other tournaments that have been played in these countries but I've only been able to identify these ones. Research that has been completed for this book is to provide the reader and dart enthuiast information on books and links to web sites of dart manufacturers, Professional Bodies and Organisations, dart stores, and Country Darts Organisations. This is not a comprehensive list but it begins the work of collating details of darts into one place instead of being scattered around the World Wide Web across many sites and publications.

Have you ever watched a darts match and wondered what on earth the players and commentator are talking about? Do you have any idea why a score of 26 is called ‘bed and breakfast’ and what being stuck in the ‘madhouse’ means? Darts has its own language and if you are curious to learn the meaning of these and many more terms, this book is for you. Written by ‘King of Bling’ Bobby George, probably Britain’s most popular and recognisable darts player, and Dr Patrick Chaplin, also known as ‘The Professor’, “Scoring for Show, Doubles for Dough” not only explains the hilarious lingo that is peculiar to darts but also how much of this fascinating terminology came into being. So if you want to know what to do if someone shouts ‘wet feet’ during a darts match, make sure that you are not ‘in the wilderness’ and dip into this book. This informative and fun reference book will provide hours of pleasure, making it a must have for fans of the game and anyone interested in finding out more about the light-hearted and humorous side of darts.

Sir Arthur Bryant and National History in Twentieth-Century Britain is a significant new study of the work of the popular historian and journalist, Sir Arthur Bryant (1899-1985). Since his death, scholarly interest in Bryant has focused on his Nazi sympathies in the late 1930s. Julia Stapleton broadens our understanding of the man and the writer. She shows us that Bryant prefigured and sustained a form of romantic nationalism that remained nascent within the British population (though not always its elites) deep into the twentieth century.
