Sir John Bowring in Europe and Asia, Reformer, intellectual, colonial governor, Sir John Bowring was the archetype of the ambitious men who made Britain a leading global power in the nineteenth century. Born to a modest trading family, he showed an aptitude for languages which led him to literature, then to radical politics in the struggles for liberty in France, Spain and Greece. Taken up by the philosopher Jeremy Bentham, he became a figure in the literary world. But his emphasis was on action rather than theories. He became a high-profile advocate of free trade and a liberal foe of Karl Marx. As member of parliament he supported full suffrage and other radical causes. He modernized Britain's public accounts, invented the florin as a first step to decimalization, and became an industrial entrepreneur. Losing his money in the 1848 slump, he took a job as consul in Canton, which led to the governorship of Hong Kong. As Britain's Plenipotentiary in East Asia he negotiated a key treaty with the King Mongkut of Siam but also started a war with China. His term as governor of Hong Kong was plagued with problems. But there as elsewhere he left a legacy of liberal ideas.Bowring's impact was spread over so many fields that his name has been eclipsed by those with a narrower focus. This book brings his life and disparate achievements together, with a particular emphasis on his role in promoting free trade and his much criticized career in Asia.

Jamie Cooks ItalyJamie Cooks Italy
Jamie Oliver's first job as a chef, years before the television cameras found him, was under Antonio Carluccio's famous mantle, and he's still passionate about the flavours of Italy - so this all-Italian cookbook, Jamie Cooks Italy, is a natural progression for him. Written to accompany an eight-part TV series that will be shown in the run up to Christmas 2018 and two years in the making, Jamie has taken time to learn the authentic, time-served tastes, techniques and skills of rustic Italian cookery directly from Italian grandmothers - at a pace that suited them.Bursting with beautiful photography of the food and the landscapes, Jamie's latest family-friendly cookbook will transport you to Italy. Penned in Jamie's usual easy-to-follow style, Jamie Cooks Italy is filled with delicious recipes that offer a good mix of fast and easy suppers and slow-cooked weekend feasts - 140 recipes arranged in 11 chapters that cover everything from Basics and Antipasti to Desserts. There are well-known classics like Carbonara with a Jamie Oliver twist, simple everyday dishes such as Nonna Teresa's pasta or Sausage, Beans and Greens, and indulgent choices that are sure to thrill guests at family occasions and dinner parties alike... Limoncello Tiramisu anyone?Known as 'nonna' to their grandchildren, these venerable Italian ladies absorbed their impressive culinary knowledge from their own mothers and grandmothers as they grew up - family recipes were never written down and Jamie feared that they'd be lost if no-one stepped in as the younger generations are leading busier lives in the towns and cities, with the same supermarket ready meal temptations that we're beset by in the UK.All the recipes have a photograph and full nutritional information, so if you're managing an especially healthy diet for someone in the family, you can be sure exactly what you're putting on each plate. Viva Italia!Hardback, 408 pages. 140 recipes.
