Dave Courtney, whose autobiography, Stop the Ride, I Want to Get Off, was a huge bestseller, reveals all from another hidden aspect of London's underworld.Notorious in London's criminal underworld, Dave is also a big name in the club and dance scene. Raving Lunacyis the story of this double life, and how one world spilled over into the other. From parties in prisons, sewers, railway arches and aircraft hangers, to legitimacy (Dave and his partner Terry Turbo won 1999's 'Best Large Promotions of the Year'); Raving Lunacycovers the ground that Stop the Ride left out, as Dave details what went on after the doors were shut tight.The clientele that came to the parties was, in Dave's words, 'the most colourful characters London has to offer'. Dave was, as ever, in the thick of it and saw and experienced the explosion, the fallout, the casualties and the successes. Told with characteristic humour and brazen honesty, Raving Lunacyreveals the darker side of the era known as the summer of love.

Robert Hooke (1635-1703) had several attributes which led to his success as a scientist: an inquiring mind, an eye for detail, highly skilled draughtsmanship, and mechanical skill. These attributes were recognised by his patrons, Dr. John Wilkins and Robert Boyle. They led to his being elected unanimously as Curator of the Royal Society, the first professional British scientist, which post he held until his death 40 years later. Today we are still benefiting from the results of many of his inventions, in our cars, clocks, cameras, even our mattresses. Richard Nichols quotes from many sources, including Hooke's diaries and lectures.

This is a two-volume study of the work of 18th-century German philosopher Georg Hegel. When studying Hegel's work it is notoriously difficult to find a starting point. Volume I begins with his views on moral issues and progresses through political and legal theory and property and punishment. Volume II explores Hegel's ideas of logic, freedom and recognition, science, aesthetics, religion and feminism in the 20th century.
