After the Second World War, cars in Britain were very hard to come by. Most new models had to go for export or were reserved for those drivers who needed them the most, such as doctors. Petrol was still rationed, roads inadequate and modern technology lacking.With the arrival of the 1950s, things slowly began to change: Morris, Austin and Ford put increasing numbers of British families on the road, new sports cars from MG, Jaguar, Triumph and Austin-Healey promised a thrilling drive, and innovative motors such as the Land Rover and the bubble car emerged. By 1958, new car buying was leading a consumer boom, and Britain’s manufacturers still had the market to themselves. Giles Chapman investigates the fascinating motoring history of the 1950s.

From the foreword: ". . . these cars aren't rare or unique, but they have other things going for them. Sometimes they were the subject of amazing restorations or rescue efforts. Sometimes, against all odds, they remained in one family for generations, or were babied to extremes and today have ridiculously low totals on their odometers. These are the cars that have stories. They might not have been amazing when they were new, but they are unique now because of the lives they've lived and the owners who have sat in their driver's seats. They've got history, and if they could talk, what amazing tales they could tell us!"

It was brash and it was loud – the 1980s put paid to the glumness of the ’70s and nowhere was that more obvious than in the cars we drove, which took a quantum leap in durability, performance, equipment and style. They had to: Japanese quality and European design were luring away ever more customers. Features such as fuel injection, turbochargers, computer-controlled systems and four-wheel drive became commonplace. This was also the decade that brought us the people-carrier and the off-roader, new classes of car that radically reshaped family transport. Meanwhile, seatbelt-wearing became law, the M25 opened, speed cameras appeared and ram-raiding was the new motoring nemesis. Relive everything car-related in Britain in the 1980s with Giles Chapman.

Im Fokus des Bandes steht die Musikkultur in West- und Ostdeutschland wahrend der Nachkriegszeit - nach dem Ende der nationalsozialistischen Herrschaft, im Zeichen von Entnazifizierung und neuen Ansatzen. Zwischen Kontinuitat und Diskontinuitat von Gedanken und Karrieren beleuchtet der Band die Situation der Musik an der Schnittstelle von Zeit- und Musikgeschichte. Das Dilemma, in das die deutsche Musik durch den Glauben an die eigene Uberlegenheit geraten war, spiegelt der Titel mit dem Aufgriff der Formel von der aDeutschen Leitkulturo. Inhalt: Vorwort I. Ausklang des Nationalsozialismus: Anselm Gerhard: Die aVorherrschaft der deutschen Musiko nach 1945 - eine Ironie der Geschichte Horst Weber: Exil und aLeitkulturo.

Meccano was first on the scene with its die-cast Dinky Toys of 1933. Lesney's Matchbox series arrived twenty years later, at genuine pocket-money prices. And then in 1956 Mettoy's Corgi Toys appeared, packed full of astounding gimmicks. From incredibly humble beginnings - Lesney started life in a derelict north London pub - the British toy car industry grew into a lucrative world-beater, with fierce rivalry developing between the three main brands: Dinky, Matchbox and Corgi. Giles Chapman reveals the fascinating story behind the battle to dominate Britain's toy car industry, and the decline that drove it into history. This new edition benefits from expanded text, while still featuring a nostalgic selection of photographs, looking back over a vibrant and cherished chapter in British cultural memory.
