In flagrante by Christopher Killip( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chris Killip's 'In Flagrante' is often cited as the most important photographic book on England in the 1980s. Published in 1988, this work portrays the steady decline of communities in Northern England - former manufacturing powerhouses that were gradually compromised by the policies of Margaret Thatcher and her predecessors from the mid-1970s onward. Killip's black-and-white photographs provide an unflinching look at these disenfranchised northern towns and the poverty visited upon them by deindustrialization

Translated accounts : a novel by James Kelman( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Set in an unnamed territory that appears to be under military rule. It is narrated in the first person, but the narrators remain anonymous, as do most of the other characters. The language used is atypically English, but akin to the translations that might appear in overseas "foreign offices." Perhaps someone transcribed firsthand accounts of certain incidents, events, and states of mind, as narrated by participants in the struggle, and then passed on the transcription for translation; or perhaps the accounts were simply translated firsthand into English and edited later."--Jacket
