During the years following World War II debates about the British landscape fused with questions of national identity as the country reconstructed its sense of self. For better or for worse artists, statesmen, and ordinary citizens saw themselves reflected in the landscape, and in turn helped to shape the way that others envisioned the land. While landscape art is frequently imagined in terms of painting, this book examines the role of landscape in terms of a broader definition of visual culture to include the discussion not only of works of oil on canvas, but also prints, sculpture, photography, advertising, fashion journalism, artists' biographies, and the multi-media stage of the national exhibition. Making extensive use of archival materials (newspaper reviews, radio broadcasts, interviews with artists, letters and exhibition planning documents), Catherine Jolivette explores the intersection of landscape art with a variety of discourses including the role of women in contemporary society, the status of immigrant artists in Britain, developments in science and technology, and the promotion of British art and culture abroad.

In the late nineteenth century, at a time when women were still denied the vote, Rachel Beer defied convention to take the helm first of The Observer, and then the Sunday Times, becoming the first woman ever to edit a national newspaper. It was to be over eighty years before Fleet Street would see the like again. Barred from the London Clubs and the Press Gallery of the House of Commons, Rachel nevertheless managed to make her formidable voice heard on both national and international political issues - including the notorious Dreyfus Affair. In public she was a rebel and a pioneer, yet behind the closed door of her study, Rachel's life was marked by strife. Her family, the Sassoons, had made their fortune in Indian opium and cotton and Rachel's marriage to Frederick Beer should have brought together two wealthy dynasties. Instead, it resulted in a deep family rift and years of heartbreak. Drawing on a wealth of original material, The First Lady of Fleet Street not only provides an important history of two venerable families, their origins and their rise to eminence, it also paints a vivid picture of a remarkable woman and of the times in which she lived.

Fodor’s See It Britain is perfect for travelers who want to understand English history and culture before they arrive, and experience the country like a native Brit while they’re there. Overflowing with brilliant color photography, this is the only illustrated guide that provides the practical information that you need while traveling—complete restaurant and hotel reviews with exact prices for lodging and dining (not ranges), plus time-saving tips and how to avoid crowds, exact admission prices to key sights, great photo stops, and special notes on “kid-friendly” attractions throughout. Hotels Our detailed reviews represent the best accommodations in Britain, in all price ranges. From five-star luxury hotels to low-budget pubs (if you can stand a little late night noise), we’ll tell you what to expect in terms of price and quality through extensive coverage of hotels and their surrounding neighborhoods, exact prices of double-occupancy rooms (including breakfast), plus pictures of hotel facilities and guestrooms. Restaurants If you want to experience the best that Britain has to offer, pay particular attention to our outstanding restaurant coverage that will help you choose from the 5,000 local eateries that cater to every budget and dining experience. From affordable, fish and chips at local pubs to places where you can splurge on a romantic, candlelit dinner—like Midsummer House Restaurant in Cambridge—you’ll find it in See It Britain. Each review covers house signature dishes, ambiance, actual prices for a two-course lunch and a three-course dinner (for two people), hours of operation, and what transportation will get you there. The Sights Whether you want to relax at a spa in Bath, watch the sun set from a deserted Pembrokeshire beach, see a city from the top deck of a double-decker bus, or go clubbing at Fabric in London, See It Britain will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way. Sights are also rated for their “value”, “walkability”, “historic and cultural interest”, plus we suggest fantastic “photo stops” and entertaining and age-appropriate “kid-friendly” attractions throughout the book. What to Do? Our shopping walks will lead you to cutting-edge fashions to fit all budgets, from hip streetwear to expensive fashions for your feet. But, Britain has much more to offer than just sight-seeing and shopping. Fodor’s See It Britain provides insider information on classical, theatrical, and cinematic performances, Britain’s music scene (live jazz to underground youth centres), nightlife, spectator and activity sports, and festivals and events. Atlas and Maps Detailed neighborhood maps are incorporated throughout the book to help you navigate on historic walks, shopping tours, or to find a restaurant. Plus, a 16-page atlas details each road and path with highlights of important landmarks, parks, metro stations, and car parking areas. Fodor’s See It™ A brand-new series that shows you before you go, guides you while you’re there, and makes the perfect keepsake on your return.
