From Cairo to Baghdad : British travel writing on Arabia, 1882-2003 by James Canton( Book )

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

From Cairo to Baghdad explores British travel writing on Arabia, from 1882 when Britain occupied Egypt until the invasion of Iraq by British troops in 2003. The work is a gentle untying of the entanglement of travel writing on Arabia and British imperial history, for the two are intricately linked. As British imperial activity flourished in Arabia from the First World War to the 1930s, so too British travel writing thrived. Britain's departure, commencing in the 1950s, saw a distinct decline in the production of travel texts, and the gradual evolution of the post-imperial travelogue. Eight chapters provide a rich map of British' travel writing across Arabia from 1882 to 2003. Chapter 1 explores religious-based travel texts, including works by Marmaduke Pickthall, Charles Doughty, Arthur Wavell and Eldon Rutter. Chapter 2 details Bertram Thomas and Harry St John Philby's competition to cross the Empty Quarter. Wilfred Thesiger's Arabian Sands (1959) is seen as expressing a form of . imperial nostalgia. Chapter 3 examines imperial wars, viewing T.E. Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom (1926) alongside Keith Douglas's Alamein to Zem Zem (1946) and ending with an observation of the Suez War (1956). Chapter 4 studies the modernising of twentieth-century Arabia: trains, cars, airplanes, oil and petrodollars. In Chapter 5, Gertrude Bell is discussed alongside an impressive array of women travellers including Margaret Fountaine, Rosita Forbes and Freya Stark. Chapter 6 compares British travellers' depictions of Baghdad and the marshes of southern Iraq, while Chapter 7 examines explorations in southern Arabia which ventured beyond Aden, highlighting the travels of Theodore and Mabel Bent, Walter Harris and Wyman Bury. The concluding Chapter 8 uses interviews conducted with William Dalrymple, Colin Thubron, Jonathan Raban and Tim Mackintosh-Smith to investigate the evolution of the post-imperial travel text in the light of the Saidian paradigm

From Cairo to Baghdad : British travellers in Arabia by James Canton( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This] is a major contribution to our understanding of British interest in, and understanding of, the Middle East between the occupation of Egypt in 1882 and the invasion of Iraq in 2003. James Canton deftly probes into ways that travel writing produced during this period was unavoidably caught up and complicit in the twin developments of mass tourism and imperialism. Organized chronologically and thematically, this study reveals a much richer and more complex range of cultural interactions and mutual engagements than the still powerful notion of a clash between civilisations."--

ANCIENT WONDERINGS by James Canton( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Take a journey into our ancient past. Explore a long-lost landscape and gradually discover the minds, beliefs and cultural practices of those souls who lived on these lands thousands of years before you.0Travelling the length and breadth of Britain, James Canton pursues his obsession with the physical traces of the ancient world: stone circles, flint arrowheads, sacred stones, gold, and a lost Roman road. He ponders the features of the natural world that occupied ancient minds: the night sky, shooting stars, the rising and setting sun. Wandering to the furthest reaches of the islands, he finds an undeciphered standing stone north of Aberdeen and follows the first footsteps on the edge of a long-lost Ice Age land in the North Sea.0As Canton walks the modern terrain, slowly understanding the ancient signs that lie within and beneath it, he weaves a gentle tale of discovery, showing how, beyond the superficial differences of life-style and culture, the ancient inhabitants of the British Isles were much closer to the present-day one than we might imagine

Coping with hard times: the role that support networks play for lone mother families in times of economic crisis and government austerity( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : This article describes how lone mother families use their personal relationships to adapt to changing conditions in the wider society and economy. During the period 2007–15, the UK experienced insecurity in the labour market, a rising cost of living, radical welfare reforms and a diminished standard of living for many. Hard times such as these put the spotlight on questions related to how vulnerable groups such as lone mothers experience, cope with, and adapt to socioeconomic crises. This article addresses such questions by drawing on qualitative evidence collected through in-depth interviews with 30 lone mothers. The article documents the experiences of these lone-mother families living through economic recession and austerity. The evidence suggests that whether or not a given lone mother is able to cope with and adapt to hard times is linked to her capacity to create, sustain and mobilise a social support network
