Paperback. New. Thurrock is an area of South Essex which displays strong individuality, despite its contrasting mixture of quiet countryside to the north and intensive industrial development along the Thames Bank. Apart from its own, fascinating, local history, many strands of the rich tapestry of England's story are woven into its past, including involvement in the Peasants' Revolt, the famous Armada speech of Queen Elizabeth I and other headline events. Its appeal to early man is becoming ever more evident from archaeological excavation and chance discoveries; while the Saxon site at Mucking is world famous and has provided Europe-wide scholars with new information about the Saxon immigration period by the cart-load - still being studied years after the main dig. Tilbury was an ancient river port, but the construction of a gigantic chain of docks in the 19th century perhaps opened up a new chapter, putting Thurrock on the world map and encouraging the rapid growth of factories and oil installations, revealing the area to the outside world. Strangely, up to the middle of the 20th century, foreigners arriving at Tilbury or involved with Thameside industries were often more aware of Grays Thurrock than English people from elsewhere. This began to change with the building of the huge post-war London overspill estate of Belhus, then the completion of the Dartford-Purfleet Tunnel in 1960 and, later, the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, linking Thurrock with the south and the Continent. Making Thurrock even better known to the outside world were scenes in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral shot at St Clement's Church, West Thurrock, some with the great new bridge in the background. But for those who live in and know the area, Thurrock still retains secrets revealed only by research, especially into its past, and in this new book a well known local historian will intrigue them with his very readable narrative account, illuminated by a profusion of carefully chosen and fully-captioned old p, History Press (SC).

This is Philipa Gregory the queen of royal fiction .Pages 415The #1 New York Times bestselling author presents the first book in a new series set amidst the tumult and intrigue of england's passionate family feud, The War of the Roses. Meet the Plantaganets. Like the Tudors, they live high and love passionately, but this family story is set against the backdrop of The War of the Roses, a long war, pitting brother against brother, for the throne of England. Now Philippa Gregory, master chronicler of British royal history, brings this family drama to life through the lives of its women, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen. The White Queen tells the story of a common woman who ascends to royalty by virtue of her beauty, a woman who rises to the demands of her position and fights tenaciously for the success of her family, a woman whose two sons become the central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the so-called missing princes in the Tower of London. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores the most famous unsolved mystery of English history, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills. Timed to publish in the English language simultaneously around the world-and heralded by a global online event followed by author appearances in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and Australia-The White Queen ushers in the dawn of a great new era for Philippa Gregory. For the first time, one of our most beloved authors will have one exclusive English language publisher-Simon & Schuster-the perfect platform from which to launch what is sure to be another bestselling, classic series., Books, 2009
