One of the most appealing, as well as one of the easiest, ways of bringing a breath of summer in to the home is to use dried and pressed flowers to make an almost endless variety of attractive arrangements and designs. Pot pourri, made with colorful, fragrant plants and carefully selected herbs and spices, recreate evocative scents to remind us of Nature's fragrance. Carol Petelin, author of the successful The Creative Guide to Dried Flowers, has drawn on her wealth of experience to provide the ultimate guide to drying and using flowers, plants, and herbs in a myriad of creative ways. First, she describes plants that can be most successfully grown, even by those with limited garden space, and explains how to best harvest and dry them. The next section covers the art of dried flower arranging. There is advice on working with different combinations of color and form to create arrangements in containers, bouquets, posies, garlands, and swags. She tells how to gather and press flowers and herbs and offers a variety of imaginative projects for them. The final section is devoted to pot pourri. The author includes recipes for deliciously fragrant mixtures and describes how pot pourri, scented flowers, and spices can be used to make many delightfully fragranced items. There is a list of sources for herbs and essential oils. Lavishly illustrated throughout with Simon McBride's color photographs and decorated with some of Edith Holden's own drawings from The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady and The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady, The Country Diary Book of Flowers will inspire all those who wish to practice the art of dried flower arranging and to make unusual and attractive gifts for their homes and friends.

Over then past fifty years the British countryside has changed out of all recognition. A wide range of wildlife species are disappearing - victims of modern intensive farming, of pesticides and fertilisers and the sheer relentless pressure to maximise output from every hedge bank and field corner. It need not have happened. The loss of our wildlife and countryside has come about through a deliberate and sustained national policy, one that costs the British people 8 billion a year. The Killing of the Countryside is a devastating attack on modern British agricultural policy and practice and a plea for a return to natural cycles, an end to subsidies and the domination of agribusiness, and for a safe, sustainable farming system. Winner of the 1997 BP Natural World Book Award.

The Fiction of Ruth Rendell

Aside from Ruth Rendell's brilliance as a fiction writer, and her appeal to mystery lovers, her books portray a compelling, universal experience that her readers can immediately relate to, the intra-familial stresses generated by the nuclear family. Even those who experience the joys as well as pains of family life will find in Rendell the conflicts that beset all who must navigate their way through the conflicts that beset members of the closest families. Barbara Fass Leavy analyzes the multi-leveled treatment of these themes that contributes to Rendell's standing as a major contemporary novelist. Rendell, who also writes as Barbara Vine, draws on ancient Greek narratives, and on the psychological theories Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung derived from them, to portray the disturbed family relationships found throughout her work. Leavy's analysis considers what distinguishes mysteries as popular entertainment from crime fiction as literary art. The potential for rereading even when the reader remembers "whodunit" will be the basis for this distinction. Leavy also looks closely at the Oedipus and Electra complexes and how they illuminate Rendell's portrayals of the different pairings within the nuclear family (for example, mother and daughter) and considers the importance of gender differences. In addition, Leavy corrects a widespread error, that Freud formulated the Electra complex, when in fact the formulation was Jung's as he challenged Freud's emphasis on the Oedipus story as the essential paradigm for human psychological development.
