THE MOST FATAL DISTEMPER
Typhus fever is known as a historical scourge in times of war, famine and population upheaval, but this is only one of four types; the other three, each carried by a different insect, are still important causes of human disease in many parts of the world. The history of each type is described, and the intriguing recent discovery that the responsible bacteria are close cousins of the mitochondria which provide energy inside every living cell on the planet is discussed. About the Author George Cowan is a retired British Army physician with interests in tropical medicine who has worked on four continents and often cared for local people. His inquiry into typhus fever was stimulated by military cases of 'scrub typhus' in Malaysia and Singapore in 1970 and has since embraced the history of all four varieties of typhus. In 2008 he received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, the University of St Andrews, after graduating with an honours degree in Humanities from the Open University in 2007.

IMMORTALITY FOR YOU
Immortality for You is the only book to put forward a treatment or ‘cure’ for old age. The book explains how to become ‘undead’ and immortal, giving details of how to perpetuate life in a post-resurrection future.

A W Hill
Throughout his book the author seeks to condemn all forms of obscenity and to promote the original innocence of sexuality, which he analyses psychologically, metaphysically and physiologically; explicit language and explicit images are used in order to convey the Anglo-Saxon concepts of sex in their original form, and by taking the reader back in time Hill hopes to reintroduce to a decadent society the initial reality of love. Perhaps the ultimate purpose of so doing is to create life in the world where until now there has been none, for throughout history man has been asleep, contained in the womb of nature’s unity; despite the separation of opposites in ancient times, the state of unity has persisted in man, and unconsciousness still rules civilisation. By using explicit terms and references the author intends to shock humanity into consciousness—and thus life—for the first time. In addition, the age-old problem of Good and Evil is examined, analysed and resolved.
THE STORY OF ELECTRICITY
T. S. M. MacLean
The Story of Electricity was written to tell people how our present knowledge of it grew up. Prospective readers may fall into three categories. First those with an Arts background and no knowledge of Science. Secondly those with a background of Science outside Physics. And thirdly those with a background of Physics, but have no knowledge of the history of electricity. To accommodate all three of these categories the book has been written with no mathematics. The order of presentation is chronological. Thus in B.C. times the effects of magnetism were of commercial importance for sea voyaging. But today the ubiquity of radio has emphasised the greater importance of electricity. Since historically advances have been made largely by individuals, their family and religious backgrounds have been recorded as important factors in their contributions. Following World War II this situation has been reversed, because of the funding requirements of global markets. But future progress may again revert to individuals.
