From 1993 to 1996 L.J.K. Setright contributed 10 articles to the Dutch car magazine GranTurismo. In these witty, erudite articles Setright, one of the 20th century's most influential motoring journalists, wrote about historic GP races, racing cars, contemporary cars, automotive history and the people in the automotive industry. Setright’s writings have to be savoured, they are not always easy to read (let’s call it an acquired taste), but anyone with a heart for the motoring scene will enjoy reading them, as Setright turned motoring into a romantic matter. After the first article (after which this book was titled, A day to remember, about the British Grand Prix of 1951, won by Froilan Gonzales from Ferrari), the copy kept arriving in our offices every three months, ten writings in total. Surely many people will enjoy reading them more than twenty years after they were originally published in Gran Turismo. Setright’s texts are very much like good wine or cigars, the older they get the better they become. ​ L.J.K. Setright (1931 – 2005) was a renowned motoring journalist and author who wrote articles and books about motorcycles, cars and automotive engineering. His articles were published in several magazines, the British magazine Car being the most well-known. Between 1993 and 1996 he contributed to the Dutch car magazine Gran Turismo. The articles in this book are the result of those contributions. Setright's writing style was very erudite and considered to be slightly over the top by some (he didn’t hesitate to put Latin phrases through his reasonings). However, everybody agreed that his engineering knowledge was formidable. He had a strong enthusiasm for Bristol Cars and for Japanese engineering, especially Honda. Setright was also known for his love of smoking tobacco, in particular Sobranie Black Russian cigarettes, and for his elegant sartorial style. He spent the last 25 years of his life in London.​ Availabel as, Ebook (€ 9,95) ​ISBN 9789491737299 Hardcover with dustjacket (€19,95) ISBN 9789491737305.

Marking the renaissance of social geographies in recent years, this major textbook showcases the breadth of conceptual and empirical approaches that scholars now utilize to understand contemporary social issues through a spatial lens. The book is collectively authored by one of the largest groups of social geographers in the world. It develops a vision of social geographies that is rooted in the commitments that have characterised the sub-discipline for at least half a decade (e.g. society-space relations, justice, equality), while incorporating new approaches, theories and concerns (e.g. emotions, performance, and the more-than-human). Embracing the increasing porosity of our work with neighbouring economic, cultural, political and environmental geographies, the book provides a round-up of the state of the sub-discipline, capturing recent directions and charting new questions and challenges for theory, research and practice. It makes sense of the bewildering variety of contemporary social geographical interests, from longstanding topics (e.g. race, class and gender) to more recent interests (e.g. sustainability, digital worlds and social change). Above all, it makes clear the relevance and contributions of social geographies not only to understanding a wide range of global and local issues, but to social change alongside communities, policy-makers and social movements. Each chapter offers an introduction to current work in social geographies, providing an overview and in-depth examples. The book has these key features that make it an essential resource for any social geography course: An accessible and engaging style that is ideal for entry level students Definitions of key terms and carefully explained concepts and ideas A range of exciting contemporary examples from a wide variety of geographical settings, including those drawn from the authors’ recent research Cross-referencing between chapters to help students expand learning Illustration with photos, tables, diagrams and other material Suggestions for further reading in each chapter “Real world research” and “real world theory” textboxes providing examples of research projects and theoretical perspectives, bringing topics alive and exploring challenges on the ground

Words to Remember Great Eulogies Through the Ages

Some eulogies stick in the mind's of generations and remain for future generations. I can still recall the eulogy of Ted Kennedy in 1968 of his slain brother Bobby Kennedy..My brother need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life; to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it.Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world.As he said many times, in many parts of this nation, to those he touched and who sought to touch him:"Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not."
