Cinema of Canada by Jerry White
Book DescriptionOften overlooked and overshadowed by its North American cousin, Canadian cinema has nevertheless produced some fascinating films and directors, including Atom Egoyan, Robert Lepage, Denys Arcand, Michael Snow and David Cronenberg. "The Cinema of Canada" contains 24 essays, each on a different film and divides itself into three distinct categories: English-Canadian cinema; Quebec cinema; and Aboriginal cinema. In so doing, it provides a fascinating historical account of the development of film and documentary traditions across the diverse national and regional communities in Canada. Among the many important films discussed are "Le Declin de l'empire americain" (1988), "I've Heard the Mermaids Singing" (1988), "Exotica" (1994), "Dead Man" (1995), "Le Confessional" (1995) and "Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner" (2001).

Mansions of Misery, Hardback (October 2016)
Introduces us to the Marshalsea's prisoners - rich and poor; men and women; spongers, fraudsters and innocents. This book helps to get to know the trumpeter John Grano who wined and dined with the prison governor and continued to compose music whilst other prisoners were tortured and starved to death. It gives us a cross-section of London.
London in the Nineteenth Century, Paperback (October 2016)
London in the nineteenth century was the greatest city mankind had ever seen. Its growth was stupendous. Its wealth was dazzling. This was the London of Blake, Thackeray and Mayhew, of Nash, Faraday and Disraeli. In this book, we witness the city's metamorphosis over the course of the century through the daily lives of its inhabitants.
London in the Twentieth Century, Paperback (October 2016)View all books by Jerry White
In 1901 no other city matched London in size, wealth and grandeur. Yet it was also a city where poverty and disease were rife. In the worlds of work and popular culture, politics and crime, through war, immigration and sexual revolution, this history shows how the city shaped their lives and how it in turn was shaped by them.
