* The ultimate insider's guide to Manchester* Features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides* Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 250 titles and 1.5 million copies in print worldwide* Appeals to both the local market (more than 510,000 people call Manchester home) and the tourist market (more than 119 million people visit Manchester every year!)* Fully illustrated with 111 full-page color photographs Manchester is far more than a grey provincial city preoccupied with the business of making money. The bales of cotton goods awaiting export have gone from the grand warehouses styled like palaces, and the cotton mills no longer hum with the sound of machinery. Yet the buildings remain in all their glory of tiles, terracotta and stained glass - converted to hotels, offices, chic apartments, hipster bars, fine eateries or gritty drinking dens. The textile trade may have disappeared, but you can find sustainable fashion in the old rag-trade district, and top quality coats and jackets are still being hand-sewn in the last remaining family-owned clothing factory. This book will also take you to alternative Manchester - Radical Manchester from Peterloo to the Pankhursts, Literary Manchester from Elizabeth Gaskell to Anthony Burgess, and of course to Madchester, the crazy music scene of Morrissey, Tony Wilson, the Hacienda and Factory Records.

Liverpool's unique history as an international port and a cultural melting pot has given it a character all its own. The city has produced music that conquered the world and is home to more historic buildings than any other British metropolis outside London. It features two magnificant cathedrals and many world famous museums. But beyond it's renowned exterior, is a labryinth of places hidden and unknown. This deliciously offbeat guidebook will lead you to a different Liverpool: down tunnels, up skyscrapers, and into secret bars, speciality shops, and disused factories. You will see Balenciaga trainers and football trophies, rolling bridges and disappearing statues, Liver Birds and suitcases, extravagent cakes and cast-iron churchs. Explore Britain's first mosque. Wander a roof garden of wild flowers, where different species bloom each month of the year. Marvel at the world's most expensive book or largest brick building (27 million bricks!). Relax in a hip tea bar with over 50 varieties of tea (loose leaf, naturally); or visit a place where you can drink Dandelion and Burdock with your fish and chips. Think you know Liverpool? Think again! Whether you're a first-time tourist, a repeat visitor, or a longtime local, prepare to be charmed and surprised by 111 eccentric and unusual places you'd never expect to find in the city best known for football and the Fab Four. Liverpool ist einzigartig: Seine Geschichte, der internationale Hafen, die zahlreichen historischen Gebäude und die Musik, die von hier aus die Welt eroberte, geben der Stadt diesen ganz eigenen Charakter. Zwei prachtvolle Kathedralen und viele weltberühmte Museen runden das Bild ab. Aber hinter dieser Fassade gibt es ein Labyrinth von versteckten und unbekannten Orten. Dieses Buch führt Sie zu ihnen: unter die Stadt, auf einen Wolkenkratzer, in geheime Bars, in besondere Geschäfte und in stillgelegte Fabriken. Entdecken Sie rollende Brücken, hippe Tee-Bars und verschwundene Statuen.

London is full of strange sights. Where was a king of Corsica buried in Soho? Which wine dealer has records of its customer's body weight? Can a subterranean cycle route lead to Scotland? And why was a high-rise block designed by James Bond's mortal enemy? London is a vibrant and colourful city full of life where cultural boundaries blur. There are long-standing regal boutiques next to trendy fashion stores, palaces, other historical buildings, exclusive Gentlemen's clubs, and - last but not least - cozy Pubs welcoming both first time visitors and regulars. London ist eine Metropole mit einer unerschöpflichen Vielfalt, eine Stadt für Superreiche, schräge Modedesigner, Garten- und Bierfreunde, Royalisten und Immigranten aus der ganzen Welt. Doch wussten Sie, dass es auch ein Versteck für Polizisten ist? Oder dass hier ein Kriegsschiff zum Kaufhaus recycelt wurde? Und dass selbst Katzen und dem deutschen König von Korsika in dieser ausgeflippten Stadt ein Denkmal gesetzt wurde? Dass die Briten einen Hang zum Skurrilen haben, ist hinlänglich bekannt - doch Sie werden sehen, dass Londons Straßen und Grünflächen selbst Einheimischen fast täglich neue Überraschungen bieten.

A scholar gentleman in the old style; a northern non-conforming radical; an academic steeped in Oxford traditions; a late 20th-century media personality; one of the most outstanding historians of his age: A.J.P. Taylor was all of these. He wrote about traditional historical subjects in a traditional manner and took narrative history to new heights and was equally at home with a critical academic, as with a vast popular audience. This biographical study of A.J.P. Taylor includes details of Taylor's privileged and cosseted childhood, the effect of his close but combative and stimulating family, the dissenting and nonconformist tradition, and his time as teacher, broadcaster journalist and historian. It attempts to evaluate how far he fulfilled his aim and conviction as to the importance of history and its place at the heart of national consciousness.
