The rise and fall of the British nanny by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1972, Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy's The Rise and Fall of the British Nanny became an instant classic of social history - a groundbreaking study of the golden era of an extraordinary and exclusive British institution. Drawing upon extensive paper research and interviewing of former nannies and their charges, Gathorne-Hardy offers 'a study of a unique and curious way of bringing up children, which evolved among the upper and upper-middle-classes during the nineteenth century, flourished for approximately eighty years and then, with the Second World War, vanished forever. The nanny hereby earns her place in the story of the British Empire; also in the histories of psychology, child-rearing and British ruling class mores." --Publisher description

Gerald Brenan : the interior castle : a biography by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1894 to a well-off military family, Gerard Brenan was expected to follow the family tradition. But at Radley school he discovered a love of books and an urge to break the mould, which led him to abscond to Europe for six months. After the First World War he went to Spain, where he found the inspiration for his life's work (and began an affair with Dora Carrington). Come the 1930s his life changed again, with marriage and the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, which inspired his masterpiece The Spanish Labyrinth (1943). Drawing on long personal acquaintance as well as a wealth of unpublished correspondence, Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy looks unflinchingly at the whole of this remarkable man of letters - from his venturesome spirit to his troublesome sexuality to his literary accomplishment

Alfred C. Kinsey : sex the measure of all things : a biography by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfred Kinsey was this century's first scientifically reputable and most influential researcher into sex. His Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (The Kinsey Report), published in 1948, was an explosive bestseller, followed in 1953 by his even more radical statistics on female sexuality - both based on over 18,000 case histories." "But Kinsey's exploration went much further than that. Bisexual, he experimented with many of the behaviours he was hearing about: and his wife and close colleagues experimented too." "This biography describes Kinsey's strict Methodist upbringing, his love of minute observation which he applied first to academic entomology and then to human sexuality, and the obsessive work ethic that contributed to his death." "Kinsey remains, especially in America, a controversial figure. Gathorne-Hardy has interviewed in depth his remaining family, his close colleagues, friends, lovers. He reveals, in this subtle, often witty, penetrating study, not just a series of new revelations, but whole new aspects of this complex, difficult, contradictory, heroic, obsessive and ultimately sympathetic man."--BOOK JACKET
