BOOK EXCERPT:

The East Sussex volume of The Buildings of England covers an area ranging from the High Weald in the north of the county to the massive ridge of the South Downs and the resort towns and ancient ports of the coast. Its coastal resorts are particularly distinguished, none more so than Brighton and Hove, where John Nash's oriental Pavilion for the Prince Regent sets the tone. Elsewhere castles at Camber, Bodiam and fortified town walls at Rye and Winchelsea attest to its military past and Battle Abbey to its medieval endowments. The towns and villages are especially rich in timber-framed, brick and tile houses for which the county is famous. The twentieth century makes its mark in the exhilarating De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and the uncompromising forms of the 1960s University of Sussex campus.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In 1898, female doctors were a rare species. But, in that year, not one but two young female doctors, Helen Boyle and Mabel Jones, arrived in Hove and set up in general practice. A few years later Dr Louisa Martindale also set up practice in Brighton. By 1920, there were two Women's Hospitals in Brighton and Hove. This fascinating book traces the lives of those pioneering doctors and their work for women and children. It offers a unique blend of social, medial and local history, and uncovers a hitherto neglected story of courage and determination, set against the vivid backdrop of Edwardian Brighton, the First World War and the struggle for women to forge a place in public life. Women's Hospitals in Brighton and Hovewill appeal to readers who have a localised interest in the history of Brighton and Hove, and those who enjoy a heartwarming, historical account of the rise of the female doctor.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Twin towns with a fascinating history, they constitute the Sussex resort that, to mark the Millennium, the Queen declared to be a City. A giant step from the Neolithic camp built on Whitehawk Hill in the fourth millennium B.C. The author, who since 1950 has worked as a planner in Brighton, has now produced the first integrated history of the two towns. His sense of humour is evident on every page of an entertaining and richly illustrated narrative, through prehistoric downsmen to the trippers and the technocrats of today's proud City.

BOOK EXCERPT:

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.
