Pinkerton's sister by Peter Rushforth( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sprawling stream-of-conscious novel set primarily in the head of Alice Pinkerton at the dawn of the twentieth century. Alice isn't yet ready for the new age; she's a vestige of Victorian times, a "madwoman" living on the third floor (not in the attic, she insists) of her family's home. "No one was as close to her as words on a page," Alice muses, and indeed, she relates more to characters from the novels of George Eliot, Charlotte Bronte, and Charles Reade than to the people who surround her, especially the thoroughly modern socialite Mrs. Albert Comstock, who represents everything Alice hates. Alice's doctor, who seeks to cure her of her "malady," proclaims, "Imagination is an impediment to progress." For Alice, there's no more chilling sentiment

A dead language : a novel by Peter Rushforth( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of one man's struggle to reconcile his past in order to make way for his future. Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton - the faithless young naval lieutenant who abandons Madam Butterfly - was glimpsed fleetingly in Peter Rushforth's previous novel, Pinkerton's Sister. Now Ben steps out of the shadows and into the centre of the stage, a young man haunted by the desolation of his boyhood years, unable to show or respond to love. He's about to sail for Japan. But his imminent departure conjures up the life he and his sister have led, and the monstrous act for which he is most remembered: the rejection and destruction of a pure and loving heart. What happened to him then will mark his whole life. He is his own man, but he is also his sister's brother. Once again, in his mastery of language, his extraordinary imagination, his superb sense of time and place, Peter Rushforth has given the world a second masterpiece, ranking alongside, or surpassing, his earlier triumph."--Publisher's website
Surveying and engineering : principles and practice by Paul Watson( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Construction is a complex industry, operating with ever changing legislative needs, new materials and technologies, and constant demands on resources. This textbook brings together the key principles and operating practices of surveying and building engineering. It will enable the practitioner or the future to appreciate the interlace between both technical and procedural requirements, identifying barriers and conflicts." "The textbook is ideal for final year undergraduates in building surveying, construction management and quantity surveying, and will provide a core resource for the BSc(Hons) degree in building engineering developed in conjunction with the Association of Building Engineers. It will also provide a handy quick-reference for practitioners, drawing as it does on a wealth of experience, both academic and professional, from the author team."--Jacket
