E J Rudsdale s Journals of Wartime Colchester

E.J. Rudsdale’s role as a museum curator and air-raid shelter superintendent at Colchester Castle during the Second World War gave him the perfect opportunity to record life on the Home Front in his journals. Seventy years later, the selected extracts gathered here provide a remarkable insight into wartime life. Rudsdale’s writing is characterised throughout by his wry observations of wartime officialdom and his lack of conformity with the prevailing views of the time. He was a pacifist, which gives his journals an unusual perspective. However, even as a civilian he could not escape the conflict, living in a garrison town threatened by invasion and regular bombing raids. His journals, therefore, record anxious and tragic events, but throughout it all his sense of humour is never diminished. This absorbing collection demonstrates Rudsdale’s ability to bring a scene vividly to life and each account highlights the daily pressures that people endured as they valiantly tried to carry on with normal life in spite of the war.

Although means-testing for Social Security transfers is economical, it hasn't proven to be very effective. The Minimum Income Guarantee (MIG) and the Pension Credit initiatives implemented by the Labour Government in the UK have both suffered from low levels of take up amongst entitled pensioners. This book sheds important new light on this pressing problem, examining existing research on take-up and highlighting gaps in understanding. It explores the strengths and weaknesses of the theoretical base, drawing on European theory and applying it to the UK. Socio-economic, demographic and attitudinal trends are analyzed to elucidate the impact they have had, and will have, on the proportion entitled to MIG and its take-up rate. Current policy is also analyzed to explore the importance of take-up for the Labour government and the prospects of improving it. As high take-up would be an important step in combating poverty, this book offers solutions and options to tackle these problems. It is therefore of critical interest to academics and policy makers in the UK and around the world.

A P Bunny Lucas The Best of All My Boys

A late Victorian wag once claimed that all men were ‘cads, aesthetes or trade’. In his time Bunny Lucas (1857-1923) was said to be all three, but David Pracy here uses a wide range of primary and secondary sources to make the case for us to think of Lucas as an aesthete. Yet his was a life full of intriguing paradoxes. A devout churchman, he was the unlikely co-respondent in an Edwardian divorce case. Conservative in character, he entered the risky profession of stock jobber and probably lost thousands of pounds in an ill-advised investment. Famous as one of the most stylish defensive batsmen of his age, he bowled a ball that inspired a short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In a remarkable first-class career spanning 34 seasons, he was for some seven years an automatic choice for England and the Gentlemen but dropped out of top-level cricket to play for his school Old Boys’ side and for the then minor county of Essex, only to help them achieve first-class status and enjoy his own cricketing Indian summer. Born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in a fashionable part of London’s West End, he became a great favourite with the often raucous East London crowds that supported Essex at Leyton. As Robin Hobbs suggests in his foreword, if Bunny Lucas had received the media attention given nowadays to players, he would have been a sporting super star.
