In 1901 Buffalo was the national symbol of the country's optimism, pride, and braggadocio. Toward the close of the century, it epitomizes the sense of economic and demographic crisis prevalent in American industrial cities. High Hopes analyzes and interprets the historical forces--external and internal-- that have shaped New York's second largest city. It examines the historical shifts that have served as a catalyst in Buffalo's growth, charting the city's evolution from a small frontier community through its development as a major commercial center and its emergence and eventual decline as a significant industrial metropolis. Mark Goldman looks at the detailed patterns of local daily life from the settlement of the village in the early nineteenth century to the tragedy of Love Canal. In the process, he covers a wide range of topics, including work, ethnicity, family and community life, class structure, and values and beliefs. By bringing to bear on the events and developments that have shaped Buffalo a broad range of subjects and ideas, Goldman helps readers to understand the vast array of complex forces at work in the historical development of all American cities.

As the 20th century reached mid-point, two undergraduates with “high hopes” and a dash of hero worship for things literary dream of setting the post-war world on fire. One hops into an MG roadster and drives expectantly across North America to meet his idol Christopher Isherwood; soon after, he crosses the Atlantic to attend Balliol College, Oxford. The other fights his way up McGill's student ladder to edit their literary magazines, helping to earn his tuition by bruising labour in BC's Forestry Service. In this collection of their letters (including unpublished correspondence from Christopher Isherwood, Sean O'Casey, Patrick Anderson, and other contemporary writers) Paul Almond and Michael Ballantyne have woven journal entries, photographs and other memorabilia together with their present-day reflections to open a bright window on our collective past.

Billly Hopkins' delightful novel HIGH HOPES is based on his own experiences as a young teacher in Manchester in the aftermath of war in the 1940s. From the author of OUR KID. It's September 1945 and Billy Hopkins is off to London to train as a teacher, with only ten bob in his pocket. Despite his dad's gloomy warnings that he'll pick up bad ways from the toffs down South, Billy survives two years in the Big City, and returns to take up his first teaching job in Manchester - on £300 a year! The catch is his first class, Senior Four, who bitterly resent the raising of the school leaving age, and are all set to take it out on their teacher. Luckily the kid from Collyhurst has some tricks up his sleeve. And then Billy meets the beautiful Laura. But is she, as his dad says, 'too good for the likes of us'?
