BRUTAL NORTH is the first photographic exploration of modernist and Brutalist architecture across the North of England. During the post-war years the North of England saw the building of some of the most aspirational, enlightened and successful modernist architecture in the world. For the first time, a single photographic book captures those buildings, in all their power and progressive ambition. Over the last few years acclaimed photographer Simon Phipps has travelled and sought out the publicly commissioned architecture of the post-war North. From Newcastle's Byker Wall Estate, voted the best neighbourhood in the UK, to the extraordinary Park Hill Estate in Sheffield, from Preston's sweeping bus station and Liverpool's Royal Insurance Building, these structures have seen off threats to their survival and are rightly celebrated for the imprint they leave upon the skyline and the cultural life of their cities. This inspiring invitation to explore northern modernism includes maps and detailed information about all the architecture photographed. ‘Captures the most aspirational and enlightened architecture of the north’s postwar years.’ Guardian Please note this is a fixed-format ebook with some colour pages and may not be well-suited for older e-readers.

The principles of creativity in stunningly simple words and pictures by the man behind the world's most successful advertising agency How did two wheels emancipate women? How can a pie save thousands of lives? How can a useless piece of fabric determine social status? How can you make night day? Simplicity looks easy. It's not. It's easier to complicate than simplify.

In the gripping sequel to the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, one woman undertakes a desperate journey to rescue the future. Etta comes from Nowhere, a village of survivors of the great plague that wiped away the world that was. In the world that is, women are scarce and childbearing is dangerous...yet desperately necessary for humankind's future. Mothers and midwives are sacred, but Etta has a different calling. As a scavenger. Loyal to the village but living on her own terms, Etta roams the desolate territory beyond: salvaging useful relics of the ruined past and braving the threat of brutal slave traders, who are seeking women and girls to sell and subjugate. When slavers seize those she loves, Etta vows to release and avenge them. But her mission will lead her to the stronghold of the Lion--a tyrant who dominates the innocent with terror and violence. There, with no allies and few weapons besides her wits and will, she will risk both body and spirit not only to save lives but also to liberate a new world's destiny.

Award-winning professor Stanley K. Ridgley, Ph.D. is a staunch defender of Individualism and Enlightenment values in the university as the best defense against the seduction of authoritarians, charlatans, political poseurs, and noxious ideologues of every sort. In BRUTAL MINDS, Dr. Ridgley takes on the topics of radicalization, cancel culture, and suppression of free speech and rise of socialism on campuses in the US. In the tradition of the seminal and influential classic Closing of the American Mind, Ridgley's book is a call-to-action to halt the left-wing takeover of higher education, bringing this important topic to a new generation. Much of American academia constitutes a dark world. It is populated by subsidized paranoiacs, amateur psychotherapists, neo-Marxist totalitarians, "student affairs professionals" imbued with Stormtrooper mentality, and thought reformers who violate federal law against human subject experimentation as they assault young students in "workshops" destroying family ties to clear the way for new relationships grounded in racialist ideology. These are the university's "brutal minds." The American university is a sanctuary where brutal minds find purpose, protection, camaraderie, subsidy, anonymity, and power. All of this occurs behind an educational façade that masks their activities and ideology. BRUTAL MINDS strips away the façade of the modern American university to reveal the power inside the institution -- the largely anonymous authoritarians who constitute the coercive gears and cogs of the machine; they turn the crank on the ideological grinders that process young people into a prefab conception of the Good Citizen, a 21st century version of the Soviet-style "New Man," who is transformed with the proper application of "education" and coercion.
