Billericay in Essex was originally a prehistoric settlement. This book tells its story from those times, through the Roman occupation, its eclipse and its subsequent rise in importance. It describes the change from a rural market town in the mid-nineteenth century to a dormitory town for London after the coming of the railway in 1889. This is the first detailed history of Billericay, packed with original research and a multitude of previously unpublished illustrations from many sources. Author Charles Phillips brings the story right up to date, and his book is an ideal introduction for all the town’s residents, as well as anyone interested in the history of Essex.

1970’s Billericay Boy is the story of a boy growing to early manhood in the Seventies and transports the reader slap-bang into the middle of a world of ‘bunking’ off school, getting the ‘whack’, smoking Players’ cigarettes at the top of the school field and ‘getting off’ with ‘birds’ at the back of the Archer Hall disco. The book is as hilarious, moody and sad as the lives of many teenagers of the time were and those who grew up in the era of Raleigh Choppers, Yamaha Fizzies, flared trousers, DM boots and Saturday afternoon football hooliganism will identify with it well. Dripping with nostalgia and peppered with a host of unforgettable characters, the author remembers his first clumsy encounters with girls, the first vehicles he ever owned and the first time he ever got drunk, as well as reliving the pressures and uncertainties of growing up and starting work during one of Britain’s worst economic recessions – all set against a soundtrack of David Bowie, Abba and Johhny Rotten’s Sex Pistols. Peter Jaggs has written many books about Thailand, most of which have reached bestselling status in their own categories. 1970’s Billericay Boy is different in that it revisits the decade he is convinced led him to run like hell to Asia in the first place. Shocking, sobering and side-splittingly funny, his latest book must surely be seen as an important piece of social history in its own right.

In 1914 Billericay was a peaceful compact village of about 2000 inhabitants. There was the High Street, Back Street, which today is called Chapel Street, and Back Lane which is now Western Road. Within half a mile of the High Street there were groups of cottages; Sun Street had some, which are still there today. There were others in Laindon Road at the beginning before you come to the Roman Catholic Church, and Stock Road, along with Norsey Road and Western Road. All of this policed by a couple of local Constables.In London Road there was Hodges Farm and others along Laindon Road where it verges on to Little Burstead, Norsey Road, Stock Road and Jacksons Lane. The roads back then were no more than dirt roads. They weren't flat and smooth and made of tar, but luckily horses were still king of the road.In 1914, between the bottom end of the High Street and the top end at Sun Street, there were only a total of 54 premises including private houses shops, pubs, a bank, Post Office, the Police station, two Blacksmiths, the undertakers, a school and a Church. The war began in August of that year and like the pace of life in the village, it started slowly for the people of Billericay. To start with it was something which they only read about in the newspapers. During the war soldiers started to be billeted in the town. There was an Army camp in Mountnessing Road opposite Station Road for the ordinary soldier, but the officers were billeted in people's houses. Initially there was excitement and enthusiasm about the war but when some of the local men who had gone off to fight in it were getting killed, suddenly it became very real and personal as local families started losing loved onesSeptember 1916 saw a Zeppelin crash in a field at nearby Great Burstead. The burnt and disfigured remains of the German airmen left nobody in doubt just of how real and painful the war was.'February 1918 even saw German soldiers come to the town as Prisoners of war interned in the local Billericay Work House. They were the enemy, but not monsters, just ordinary men like those from Billericay who had gone off to fight in a war that they most probably didn't want to be fighting in. When it was all over some would return to their families to get on with their lives and for the ones who didn't make it back, there would be the commemoration of their names on a war memorial for generations to remember forever more.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 4 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
