Riotous Assembly

by Tom Sharpe, Riotous Assembly Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Riotous Assembly books, When Miss Hazelstone of Jacaranda Park kills her Zulu cook in a sensational crime passionel, the gallant members of the South African police force are soon on the scene: Kommandant van Heerden, whose secret longing for the heart of an English gentleman leads to the most memorable transplant operation yet recorded; Luitenant Verkramp of the Security Branch, ever active in the pursuit of Communist cells; Konstabel Els, with his propensity for shooting first and not thinking later - and also for forcing himself upon African women in a manner legally reserved for male members of their own race. In the course of the strange events which follow, we encounter some very esoteric perversions when the Kommandant is held captive in Miss Hazelstone's remarkable rubber room; and some even more amazing perversions of justice when Miss Hazelstone's brother, the Bishop of Barotseland, is sentenced to be hanged on the ancient gallows in the local prison. Not a 'political' novel in any previously imagined sense, Riotous Assembly provided a completely fresh approach to the South African scene - an approach startling in its deadpan savagery and yet also outrageously funny.

Riotous Assemblies

by Adrian Randall, Riotous Assemblies Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Riotous Assemblies books, Riotous Assemblies examines eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century England through the lens of popular disorder. Adrian Randall shows how conflicts and tensions in 'high' politics contributed to a potent national sense of freedom and right, giving ordinary people the confidence to respond vigorously to any threat to their customary liberties. He demonstrates how the rulers of eighteenth-century England were forced to manage disorder through a mixture of judicious theatre and periodic repression, and how economic and social transformation led to fundamental changes in the nature of popular protest.

The Bedside Ark

by David Muirhead, The Bedside Ark Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Bedside Ark books, This riotous assembly of unrespectable creatures comprises 42 short accounts of southern Africa’s vibrant collection of wild animals. From the one-of-its-kind aardvark to the wilfully ignorant ostrich; the Houdini-like honey badger to the precariously specialised klipspringer; and from the curvaceous, sports-model springbok to the recklessly insensitive hyaena – this book airs the dirty laundry (and shares the trade secrets) of some of our wackiest, most eccentric fauna. Many of the stories are illustrated with delightful line drawings. Basing his accounts on accurate, true-to-life detail, but always looking on the light side, author David Muirhead captures the weird and wonderful lives of his subjects, investigating their often exaggerated reputations, their habits, weaknesses, armouries and modi operandi. At once informative and hugely entertaining, this riotous assembly will appeal to anyone with the slightest interest in wildlife.

Riotous Roscommon

by Anne Coleman, Riotous Roscommon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Riotous Roscommon books, Roscommon was a land hungry county. The landless rose in large numbers and declared they would rather be shot than starved. Their opposition and brutality was directed against those evicting their tenants or ëtaking-upí land from which another had been evicted. By depleting the ranks of the landless labourers, the famine eased the pressure on the land supply and broke the resolve of the ëdisaffectedí.
