EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn is populated by what might be called "external emigrants", the people who in emigrating have changed nothing about their lives but their location. Brighton Beach, the novel about this Jewish immigrant community, is a satiric look at this island of Russian life in New York City. Levine, a well-known Odessa writer, arrives in New York and peddles his single book stories under several titles. There is also Pishonik, who runs the second-hand store and has a thriving under-the-counter business in stolen jewelry, just as in Odessa he'd dealt in produce. A taxi driver who sells drugs on the side and dreams of opening a luncheonette. Seva, who works odd jobs and dreams of buying a taxi. There's even a schoolboy with his own get-rich-quick mail-order scam. The intellectuals: Volodya, sets about beginning a new, healthier life as a housepainter; Aaron, who was a teacher in Odessa, opens a leather-goods factory and tries to run it, but thwarted at every turn. Marat, a would-be writer and too naïve to understand the venality which surrounds him, eventually gives the writer Levine his comeuppance. Faya, Seva's wife, hunts the stairwells in their apartment building in search of Volodya and a more genteel life. Beba and Mina, sisters long to be free of their tyrannical father. There is the Organization of Aid Emigrants, under the direction of the kindly and unsuspecting American Mrs. Welch, and run by emigrants. And throughout the book there is a chorus of emigrants strolling on the broadwalk, lining up for free eyeglasses or cheap apartments, and sending pictures, presents and boastful letters home to their Odessa relative about how good life is in America, This novel gives the reader a colorful picture of this thriving community on the sultry summer streets of Brooklyn.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The town of Brighton was founded by railroad man and real estate developer Daniel F. Carmichael at the junction of the Denver Pacific (now Union Pacific) and Denver and Boulder Valley Railroads. Carmichael determined, "There should be a town here that would do credit to the splendid valley." The junction, originally named Hughes after the first president of the Denver Pacific Railroad, had a long history as a crossroads of the West. The town grew into an agricultural center for the Platte River Valley with a thriving sugar beet industry, dairies, and canning factories, but the changing economy would transform Brighton first into a suburban community and now into one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A look at the dark side of life, Victorian-style, when nothing was quite as it seemed and a public execution could be an entertaining family day out. Murderers, poachers, thieves, pickpockets and vagabonds all went about their business with impunity. Crime took place on the streets, on public transport, in homes, pubs, prisons, asylums, workhouses and brothels - it was all part of everyday life in Brighton and Hove in the late 1800s. Read about the notorious railway murderer, Percy Lefroy, who appeared at his trial in full evening dress and went to the gallows in an old brown suit. Gasp at the audacity of a temptress who fell in love with a doctor and tried to poison his wife, with strychnine laced chocolate. Then there's little Emily, a girl who received imprisonment with hard labour for stealing a few tempting pieces of gingerbread while a gaggle of disruptive young women loved causing a riot, flirting with men and smashing windows. It was madness and mayhem in those weird and wonderful times - and it's brought vividly to life by Janet Cameron in Brighton and Hove - Murder and Misdemeanours.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

How would you feel if your football club was bought by a businessman who saw your ground as real estate? And what if your ground was demolished leaving you with nowhere to play next season? Many fans believe that when Bill Archer, a Blackburn-based entrepreneur, bought Brighton and Hove Albion, he had no passion for the club or the game but rather saw an opportunity to make a profit. If so, he made the fatal mistake of misjudging football fans. In July 1995, Brighton's local daily paper led its front page with the headline 'Seagulls Migrate', announcing that the Goldstone Ground was to be sold to a property developer for £7.4 million and that 'home' games were to be played at Portsmouth. All this without one word of consultation with the fans. What followed was the biggest campaign in the history of football to save a club. Drawing on dozens of interviews with people directly involved - the fans, the FA, the players and the management - Build a Bonfire dramatically traces the progress of the two-year fight with the board: two years of despair, absurdity and solidarity. In so doing, the book not only explores implications for other clubs, in a world where the battle lines between football and money are being drawn ever tighter, but also creates a picture of that strange and wonderful thing: the football fan. And having lived through the crisis and listened to the fans, the authors can offer their Ten Essential Steps to Depose your Club Chairman, should the need arise . . .

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

During the course of the 19th and 20th centuries Brighton grew from a small fishing village on the Sussex coast to a large thriving city, popular with residents and visitors alike. Much building work went on during this time, but sadly many of the theatres, cinemas, dance halls and churches that were such a part of life in these earlier times have either been made redundant or converted for other uses or demolished. One of the iconic buildings of the city is St Peter's Church. When it was first built it stood at the entrance to the main part of Brighton, on the road that goes past the Royal pavilion to the Palace Pier. It was the first important design that Sir Charles Barry created. He later became one of the foremost architects of Victorian times being responsible for the Houses of Parliament and Highclere Castle (now known to millions of television viewers as Downton Abbey). St Peter's is a fine example of Barry's work, but this book will record how a chancel was added to the north of the building seventy-five years after the original structure had been completed. We will also see how the incumbent of St Peter's became Vicar of Brighton which put him at the centre of the building and development of other churches throughout the town. In the twentieth century St Peter's continued to be the spiritual hub for civic life in the town, but there was one occasion when the vicar failed to get to the church for the Sunday morning service. Later on the church suffered an arson attack, and the century ended with an extraordinary impromptu time of reflection in the early hours of 1st January 2000. However as the new century began, it was recognised that falling attendances and failing masonry could lead to St Peter's going the same way as other older buildings in the city. The church authorities did not have the financial resources to cover all the expenses that this grand old building was requiring, and thus St Peter's came under the threat of closure. This horrified the inhabitants of the city who saw St Peter's as being just as much a part of the cityscape as the Pavilion and the Pier. To the great delight of all, the church was eventually saved through the last minute intervention of Holy Trinity Brompton Church in London. This book documents the story of a church that, amid many ups and downs along the way, has come to be much loved in Brighton, Hove and Sussex.
