Richard Owen

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/richard-owen...
In the mid-1850s, no scientist in the British Empire was more visible than Richard Owen. Mentioned in the same breath as Isaac Newton and championed as Britain's answer to France's Georges Cuvier and Germany's Alexander von Humboldt, Owen was, as

John Owen, Richard Baxter and the Formation of Nonconformity

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/john-owen-richard-ba...
John Owen (1616-1683) and Richard Baxter (1615-1691) were both pivotal figures in shaping the nonconformist landscape of Restoration England. Yet despite having much in common, they found themselves taking opposite sides in several important debates, and their relationship was marked by acute strain and mutual dislike. By comparing and contrasting the parallel careers of these two men, this book not only distils the essence of their differing theology, it also offers a broader understanding of the formation of English nonconformity. Placing these two figures in the context of earlier events, experience and differences, it argues that Restoration nonconformity was hampered by their strained personal relationship, which had its roots in their contrasting experiences of the English Civil War. This study thus contributes to historiography that explores the continuities across seventeenth-century England, rather than seeing a divide at 1660. It illustrates the way in which personality and experience shaped the development of wider movements.

The Adventures of Richard Rat

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-adventures-of-richard-r...
Richard Rat, a young orphan rat, is sentenced to Prudence Prison for the crimes of breaking and entering, and drinking stolen goods. But Richard's stay in prison proves short-lived. He escapes for the simple reason that he is a ratoholic and desperately needs a drink! Drifting aimlessly, Richard ends up squatting in the ceiling of a building, which, as fate would have it, turns out to be a private rat's school. From his hole in the ceiling, Richard begins to take notes and soon becomes the schoolmaster Mr Potts' most diligent student. When Potts' English School closes down, Richard moves into City Library and continues to educate himself. Yet out in the big, wide world, the philosophical Mr Rat is repeatedly put on the back foot in the school of hard knocks. Determined not to be defeated by his circumstances, a stronger and wiser rat emerges. "Richard Rat accidentally grew out of another book I was writing…" says the author. "I was writing this book about a boy who received a series of rather wacky comics for his birthday, called, The Adventures of Richard Rat. When I began to describe the comics, Richard quickly stood up an

Sudan Days

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/sudan-days...
Sudan Days gives a grass roots picture of British colonial rule in Africa in the second quarter of the twentieth century. In 1926, at the age of twenty-three, the author was posted to the Sudan, which was then an Anglo-Egyptian condominium, administered jointly by Britain and Egypt. Over the next 25 years, he rose through the ranks to become Governor of Bahr al-Ghazal, the province in the far south-west, and he grew to love the local tribes, who went about (as he put it) 'starko' and fought each other with spears and sticks. He himself moved freely among them, trekking on his camel, George, as he visited Government outposts, police stations and so on, apparently impervious to the pulverising heat, which was often 40°C in the shade. He describes many extraordinary scenes, not least that of watching Dinka tribesmen enlist the help of hippos in their fishing. In the 1950s, however, he became disillusioned by international plans to create a single state when the country achieved independence, believing that South Sudan should have special status - which it did not achieve until 2011 - and in 1953 he resigned. He wrote these reminiscences during the 1960s, but they have remained unpublished until now - perhaps because he was so disappointed at seeing all the work the British had done thrown away, and the Sudan descend into a maelstrom of revolution and war. Sudan Days will appeal to those with an interest in Sudanese history, and the way in which the country was shaped by colonial influence in the 1920s-1950s.
