Religious Orders by David Knowles
Book DescriptionThis book covers a period (1336-1485) neglected by historians, when many features of the modern world were germinating under the surface of medieval institutions: the age of Chaucer, Langland, Bradwardine and Wyclif, of the new Nominalism and the Conciliar Movement. David Knowles devotes part of his book to narrative, and part to analysis. The great abbeys are at their height of outward splendour, we see the building schemes of Ely and Glouster, the impact of the Black Death, and the recovery from it; we see the monks and friars in controversy at Oxford, the attacks of Wyclif and the Lollards, helped by the satire of the poets; the conservative reaction, and the foundations and reforms of Henry V, followed by the Indian summer of the feudal aristocracy.

Triumph TR6, Hardback (April 2016)
Tells the life story of Triumph TR6 in detail. Covering the design, development and manufacture of the car as well as its motorsport history, this title shows how this last bastion of traditional British sports car motoring went against the grain of troubled automotive times, outstripping its predecessors in sales and popularity.
MG V8, Hardback (February 2013)
Tells stories of some of the most powerful and exciting cars ever to wear the evocative MG octagon badge.
MGF and TF, Hardback (September 2010)
In the wake of the demise of the MG Midget and MGB, there seemed little prospect for the MG badge beyond being used as a kind of 'GTi' badge for various Austins and Rovers. However, thanks to the determination of a few people, and an enduring affection in public hearts, the tale has had a happier ending. This title tells the story of that journey.
