Spain Rodriguez is a legend in comix, whose life story was as exciting as the adventures of his comic book protagonists. Mentored by an artist mom, drawn to comic books and juvenile delinquency, a motorcycle outlaw, an influential artistic force in the underground press, and one of the original seven samurai of Zap Comix, this is the first volume in another historic landmark series from Fantagraphics. His alter ego Trashman, Agent of the Sixth International, sworn to fight the oppressor with his brothers and sisters… especially the sisters (ahem). The 170 pages of Trashman stories that Spain drew throughout his career form the backbone of this volume, along with his first hand accounts of riding with the Road Vultures Motorcycle Club (a gang once considered so dangerous that the police chief of Buffalo, New York, declared war on them) and his 1969 East Village Other series about cop corruption, Manning. This first volume is rounded with an informative inside account of Spain’s life and loves in the emerging counterculture of New York’s Lower East Side.

The reign of Elizabeth I will always be remembered for the Armada. But it was the Irish, not the Spanish, who came closest to destroying the security of the Elizabethan state. Between 1560 and 1602, only superior military force -- allied with ruthless subjugation -- preserved England's throne against a succession of rebellions and uprisings throughout Ireland. This classic work by renowned military historian Cyril Falls is the crucial account of the half century that changed the course of Anglo-Irish history. The Elizabethan wars in Ireland involved the collision of two civilizations. Falls's critical work gives a vital perspective to the broad sweep of Anglo-Irish relations.

Men and Women Writers of the 1930s is a searching critique of the issues of memory and gender during this dynamic decade. Montefiore asks two principle questions; what part does memory play in the political literature of and about 1930s Britain? And what were the roles of women, both as writers and as signifying objects in constructing that literature? Montefiore's topical analysis of 1930s mass unemployment, fascist uprise and 'appeasement' is shockingly relevant in society today. Issues of class, anti-fascist historical novels, post war memoirs of 'Auden generation' writers and neglected women poets are discussed at length. Writers include: * George Orwell * Virginia Woolf * W.H. Auden * Storm Jameson * Jean Rhys * Rebecca West
