"The best book to have been written about the Vietnam War" (The New York Times Book Review); an instant classic straight from the front lines. From its terrifying opening pages to its final eloquent words, Dispatches makes us see, in unforgettable and unflinching detail, the chaos and fervor of the war and the surreal insanity of life in that singular combat zone. Michael Herr’s unsparing, unorthodox retellings of the day-to-day events in Vietnam take on the force of poetry, rendering clarity from one of the most incomprehensible and nightmarish events of our time. Dispatches is among the most blistering and compassionate accounts of war in our literature.

God knows it is hard to make God boring, Stanley Hauerwas writes, but American Christians, aided and abetted by theologians, have accomplished that feat. Whatever might be said about Hauerwas—and there is plenty—no one has ever accused him of being boring, and in this book he delivers another jolt to all those who think that Christian theology is a matter of indifference to our secular society. At once Christian theology and social criticism, this book aims to show that the two cannot be separated. In this spirit, Hauerwas mounts a forceful attack on current sentimentalities about the significance of democracy, the importance of the family, and compassion, which appears here as a literally fatal virtue. In this time of the decline of religious knowledge, when knowing a little about a religion tends to do more harm than good, Hauerwas offers direction to those who would make Christian discourse both useful and truthful. Animated by a deep commitment, his essays exhibit the difference that Christian theology can make in the shaping of lives and the world.

For the past two years, Frank Skinner has written a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches from the Sofa is the brilliant result. Pondering such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is wit and wisdom, and a fine sense of the absurd, all rolled into one.

Horatio Nelson was an extraordinary letter writer - vivid and frank - and his collection of letters has been compared with those of Pepys, Byron and Keats. Yet, incredibly, the one great edition of these letters, edited by Nicolas and published between 1844 and 1846 has never been reprinted despite its crucial importance to our understanding of Nelson and his times. Chatham Publishing is now reissuing all seven volumes of this work in an accessible paperback format. This new edition of the letters will be welcomed by all Nelson scholars, by maritime historians and by the general public who have in the past been so enthralled by the other great compilations such as Byron's letters or Pepys' diaries. No Nelson collection is complete without them. Volume II covers the years 1795 to 1797, including the continuing war with France and Spain in the Mediterranean, the battle of Cape St Vincent, where Nelson's famous capture of two Spanish ships of the line is recounted in his own words, and the disastrous attack on Tenerife which cost the newly-promoted Rear-Admiral his right arm.
