In this charming and poignant memoir, the 13th Earl Ferrers - 'a farmer who got caught up in the slipstream of politics' - reflects on a life very well lived. Alongside contemplative musings on politics, religion, relationships and the meaning of life are humorous anecdotes - on his aristocratic upbringing at Staunton Harold in the 1930s, high jinks at Winchester and Cambridge, national service in the jungle of Malaya and his time as minister in every Conservative Government from Macmillan to Major. Drawing on nearly sixty years of public service, Whatever Next? recounts captivating tales of the ups and downs of Westminster life - including choice nuggets of original correspondence, cartoons and poems - from a peer with a real twinkle in his eye.

After a sickly start to his life, Tony Porter certainly made up for it – he started his career selling paint for ICI, who later sent him to Nigeria. There he married Beatrice and they had three children. Brought home 8 years later following the outbreak of the Biafran war, he left ICI and immersed himself in the swinging 60s, painting his convertible Citroen brown and selling high fashion for the Kensington Biba store, founded by his sister-in-law Barbara Hulanicki. Subsequently, Tony left Biba to start his own fashion PR business in the West End of London, and was also part of the group that set up the British (later London) Fashion Week. With the help of Beatrice, their PR Company prospered, enabling them to buy a yacht, and in due course even tiny Burgh Island, lying off the South coast of Devon. Having restored its Art Deco hotel, they sold the island and Tony is concentrating on his new career as a writer. Punctuated by his laugh-a-minute style, Whatever Next? is a unique biography of a life spent at the forefront of British fashion. This book will be enjoyed by those interested in the fashion industry, but more broadly by readers looking for an entertaining narrative of an unbelievable life.

A city of tropical heat, sweat, ramshackle beauty, and its very own cadence--a city that always surprises--Havana is brought to pulsing life by New York Times bestselling author Mark Kurlansky. Award-winning author Mark Kurlansky presents an insider's view of Havana: the elegant, tattered city he has come to know over more than thirty years. Part cultural history, part travelogue, with recipes, historic engravings, photographs, and Kurlansky's own pen-and-ink drawings throughout, Havana celebrates the city's singular music, literature, baseball, and food; its five centuries of outstanding, neglected architecture; and its extraordinary blend of cultures. Like all great cities, Havana has a rich history that informs the vibrant place it is today--from the native Taino to Columbus's landing, from Cuba's status as a U.S. protectorate to Batista's dictatorship and Castro's revolution, from Soviet presence to the welcoming of capitalist tourism. Havana is a place of extremes: a beautifully restored colonial city whose cobblestone streets pass through areas that have not been painted or repaired since long before the revolution. Kurlansky shows Havana through the eyes of Cuban writers, such as Alejo Carpentier and José Martí, and foreigners, including Graham Greene and Hemingway. He introduces us to Cuban baseball and its highly opinionated fans; the city's music scene, alive with the rhythm of Son; its culinary legacy. Through Mark Kurlansky's multilayered and electrifying portrait, the long-elusive city of Havana comes stirringly to life.

How is it that, half a century after Brown v. Board of Education, educational opportunities remain so unequal for black and white students, not to mention poor and wealthy ones? In his important new book, Five Miles Away, A World Apart, James E. Ryan answers this question by tracing the fortunes of two schools in Richmond, Virginia--one in the city and the other in the suburbs. Ryan shows how court rulings in the 1970s, limiting the scope of desegregation, laid the groundwork for the sharp disparities between urban and suburban public schools that persist to this day. The Supreme Court, in accord with the wishes of the Nixon administration, allowed the suburbs to lock nonresidents out of their school systems. City schools, whose student bodies were becoming increasingly poor and black, simply received more funding, a measure that has proven largely ineffective, while the independence (and superiority) of suburban schools remained sacrosanct. Weaving together court opinions, social science research, and compelling interviews with students, teachers, and principals, Ryan explains why all the major education reforms since the 1970s--including school finance litigation, school choice, and the No Child Left Behind Act--have failed to bridge the gap between urban and suburban schools and have unintentionally entrenched segregation by race and class. As long as that segregation continues, Ryan forcefully argues, so too will educational inequality. Ryan closes by suggesting innovative ways to promote school integration, which would take advantage of unprecedented demographic shifts and an embrace of diversity among young adults. Exhaustively researched and elegantly written by one of the nation's leading education law scholars, Five Miles Away, A World Apart ties together, like no other book, a half-century's worth of education law and politics into a coherent, if disturbing, whole. It will be of interest to anyone who has ever wondered why our schools are so unequal and whether there is anything to be done about it.
