Life of Admiral of the Fleet Andrew Cunningham by Michael Simpson
Book DescriptionCunningham was the best-known and most celebrated British admiral of the Second World War. He held one of the two major fleet commands between 1939 and 1942, and in 1942-43, he was Allied naval commander for the great amphibious operations in the Mediterranean. From 1943 to 1946, he was the First Sea Lord and a participant in the wartime conferences with Churchill, Stalin, Roosevelt and the US Chiefs of Staff, deliberating the global strategy for Allied victory. He also led a very active public life for almost twenty years after his retirement in 1946. Cunningham's papers are abundant for the period 1939-63 and are supplemented here by Cabinet and Admiralty records, papers of his service contemporaries and of Churchill, and by memories of his family and friends, as well as extensive US archives and private papers.

A fascinating exploration of the relation of the Modern Olympic Games to the Classical tradition, examining claims of continuity between ancient and modern.
Crossroads in the Black Aegean, Hardback (November 2007)» View all books by Michael Simpson
This is a fascinating study of African rewritings of Greek tragedy. The authors ask why the plays of Sophocles' Theban Cycle are so often adapted by dramatists of African descent, and how plays that dilate on the power of the past, in the inexorable curse of Oedipus and the regressive obsession of Antigone, can articulate the postcolonial moment.
