The Outside Lands from the Author: Hannah Kohler. San Francisco, 1968: Jeannie and Kip are bereaved and adrift, their mother dead under mysterious circumstances, and their father--a decorated World War II veteran--consumed by guilt and losing control of his teenage children. Kip, a dreamer and swaggerer prone to small-time trouble, enlists with the Marines to fight in Vietnam. Jeannie finds a seemingly safe haven in early marriage to a doctor and motherhood. But when Kip is accused of a terrible military crime, Jeannie is seduced--sexually, emotionally, politically--into joining an underground antiwar organization. As Jennie attempts to save her brother, her search for the truth leads her into two dangerous relationships, with a troubled young woman and a grievously wounded veteran, that might threaten her marriage, her child, and perhaps her life. This is the story of a family caught in the maelstrom of sweeping change, where social customs and traditional values are overturned by events that will transform America. An emotionally wrenching and morally complex novel, The Outside Lands is Hannah Kohler's powerful, confident debut and announces her as a remarkable new literary talent.

Sherington from the Author: A. C. Chibnall. First published in 1965, this book is a study of the feudal and economic development of a village from Norman times to the nineteenth century. Dr Chibnall has reconstructed the history of Sherington in north Buckinghamshire from little-known documents in the Public Records Office together with local and private records. After introductory chapters on the pre-Norman period Dr Chibnall gives a chronological account of the village's development. Some of the topics discussed are furlong names, the Domesday return, the impoverishment of the manorial families in late Tudor times, the yeomanry, and the effects on the village's economy of enclosure in neighbouring villages. Dr Chibnall's use of his various sources gives a closely integrated and continuous history of an English village which will be a model for social, agricultural and economic historians.
