Saints and Scholars by David Knowles
Book DescriptionThis collection transports us into the monastic age - the thousand years between the sixth and sixteenth centuries, when the monasteries were the treasure-houses of Europe's social, cultural and religious heritage. The men we encounter are each representative, in differing ways, of their own historical setting and of the strengths and weaknesses of mankind. Professor Knowles portrays outstanding spiritual leaders, such as St Bernard and St Francis; the powerful intellects, the writers and artists, such as St Anselm, Bede and Matthew Paris; some of the noblemen, politicians and magnates; and those, like Gerald of Wales or John Wyclif, who were fierce and not always just critics of the monastic way of life; some lesser figures whose interests were limited to farm administration or country pursuits; and those almost forgotten men who died for their faith under the shadow of the Reformation. Each study is remarkable for its balance, sympathy and understanding; this is a collection by a great scholar who is an artist in words.

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.
