Petroleum Collectables by Mike Berry

Book Description

In 1967 Beaulieu held the first autojumble in the United Kingdom and collectors of anything remotely connected with motoring found they had a huge market place. Early petrol pumps look very attractive, as do the globes that go on top. Enamel advertising signs are a popular collector s item and the petrol companies produced many of these. Petrol sold in two-gallon cans for many years; hundreds survive and, like stamps, are closely scrutinised by collectors for variation from standard. Now anything to do with petrol retailing is a collectable item and in this book Mike Berry outlines some of the thousands of pre-Second World War items which now come under the title of petroleum collectables or petroliana . About the authorMike Berry started collecting petrol cans in the early 1980s and now has Britain s largest collection. He then went on to collect oil cans, petrol pumps and enamel signs and now anything to do with petrol will find a place in his collection."

Affluent Society Revisited by Mike Berry Affluent Society Revisited, Paperback (November 2015)

This book revisits John Kenneth Galbraith's The Affluent Society from the perspective of the background to, and causes of, the 2008 global economic crisis. Each chapter takes a major theme of his book, distils Galbraith's arguments, and then discusses to what extent they cast light on current developments.

Terrorism, Elections, and Democracy by Mike Berry Terrorism, Elections, and Democracy, Hardback (February 2010)

This book examines the influence of terrorist threat in the recent elections in the US, Great Britain, and Russia to analyze the influence of post-9/11 fears on voting behaviour in comparative perspective. It is in these different countries that warnings about terrorism find the most resonance with candidates, journalists and voters alike.
