Robinson in Space is a visual, satirical record of a journey made by a fictional character called Robinson, narrated by his traveling companion and researcher, through the increasingly unknown space of present-day England. Robinson quotes Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible. . ." His assumptions about economic failure, especially in manufacturing industry, are gradually challenged by the discovery of an industrial economy that employs few people but still generates most of the wealth of the fifth-largest economy in the world. Robinson in Space incorporates material from the award-winning film of the same name that was released just before the British 1997 General Election. The book juxtaposes the narrative and over 200 intriguing, strange-yet-familiar images from the film to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the landscapes of present-day England.

Italy The Places In Between by Kate Simon is not a tourist guide to the major cities of Italy like Milan, Venice, Florence, Naples, and Rome; it's a valuable and elegant source to the historical, topographical, architectural, and cultural riches of Italy beyond those big cities. In this reissue of her 1984 classic, Kate Simon reveals the special charm of places like the Umbrian hill towns, the enchantments of the Etruscan tomb paintings of Tarquinia, and the watery grace of Treviso. Incomparably well-written, Italy The Places In Between will captivate both the novice and the seasoned traveler and most likely become an excellent travel companion.
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.
