Described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, the Swiss pastor and theologian, Karl Barth, continues to be a major influence on students, scholars and preachers today. Barth s theology found its expression mainly through his closely reasoned fourteen-part magnum opus, Die Kirchliche Dogmatik. Having taken over 30 years to write, the Church Dogmatics is regarded as one of the most important theological works of all time, and represents the pinnacle of Barth s achievement as a theologian. T&T Clark International is now proud to be publishing the only complete English translation of the Church Dogmatics in paperback.
The Velvet Underground, among the most influential bands of all time, are credited with creating a streetwise, pre-punk sensibility that has become inseparable from the popular image of downtown New York. "Discovered" by Andy Warhol in 1966, the VU - with their original line-up of Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Mo Tucker - would soon become the house band of the avantgarde, composing songs simultaneously furious in their abrasiveness and beautiful in their pathos, standing in striking contrast to the prevailing flower power of the era. All Yesterdays' Parties gathers for the first time almost all of the published writings contemporary with the band's existence-from sources as mainstream as the New York Times to vanished voices of the counterculture like Oz, Fusion, and Crawdaddy! The book is a revealing snapshot of an era by trailblazing rock writers such as Lester Bangs, Robert Greenfield, and Paul Williams. With photographs, posters, and other visual evocations of the period throughout, All Yesterdays' Parties is an invaluable resource, a trove of lore for anyone interested in the VU, their roots, and legacy.

‘Wat Napoleon is voor de Franse revolutie, dat ben ik voor de recherche.’ Wanneer rechercheur Duchamp naar de Amsterdamse Pijp wordt geroepen om de dood van een verklede jongen op te helderen, raken zijn assistent Julius Floret en hij verwikkeld in een onnavolgbare affaire. Speurend naar onrecht weet Duchamp zich in de meest penibele verhoren staande te houden. De verdachten lijken zich zo onbeduidend mogelijk op te stellen, en doen een uiterst beroep op het fragiele geduld van de detective. Duchamp zoekt de oplossing van de moord zonder schijnbaar motief in nachtcafés en Ikea-meubilair. Tegels lichten laat hij aan zijn assistent over; zijn handen moeten onberispelijk blijven. Naarmate de intrige zich ontspint, wordt duidelijk dat er meer op het spel staat dan een levenloos slachtoffer.
This is a rare chance to re-discover a contemporary account of a military conflict which took place a Century ago. "The Agony of Belgium", written in 1914 by Frank Fox, a war correspondent veteran of the Balkan Wars, precedes the trench warfare of the Great War. It recounts events that the modern European mind would probably wish to forget. The bravery and resilience of the relatively new and untested Belgian Army, following the rejection of the German Ultimatum by the King, deserves a wider audience. Throughout this account the courageous and noble qualities of King Albert in the dark days come to the fore. Whether at the Front as an active Commander-in-Chief; with his people during Zeppelin raids and artillery bombardments at Antwerp; declining refuge in France after the retreat from Ostend; or rallying his troops for rearguard actions his conduct was of the finest. For these first 4 months of WW1, Fox used a bicycle to travel extensively (up to 75 miles/day- including an escape from Brussels over the border to Holland) to the various fronts admiring the determination of "our" Army against insuperable odds, and lamenting the miseries heaped upon the populace. His account of the "frightfulness" of the events in Louvain against the civilian population- including women and children- and the sacking of cultural treasures was not at first believed by Officials in Antwerp. However his reporting of Zeppelin raids helped to arouse public opinion in the United States. Having been turned over as a spy by civilians to the French cavalry, he prevailed to produce a unique insight into the ebb and flow of the campaign. From reporting the use of civilians as human shields at Alost, to suffering the effects of the final bombardment of Antwerp from which he escaped by boat, and the turning of the tide after the battle of the Yser, Fox provides vivid descriptions of a terrible, and little known, conflict. "A harrowing account of the suffering that Belgium endured from the German invasion in 1914. Sir Frank Fox charts Belgium's heroic stand, and the personal courage of King Albert I that inspired his Army." LORD ASTOR of HEVER - British Defence Minister "As a Belgian citizen, who has lived in two of the martyr-towns, Leuven and Aarschot, I was stunned by this powerful account of the atrocities of war. Fox's reports undoubtedly contributed to the British support of our valiant King Albert I and his Army". Dr. LUDO SCHELLENS - Kasteel Schoonhoven, Aarschot
