    Hugh Johnson on Wine

    By Hugh Johnson
    Authors:
    Hugh Johnson
    'On Wine-which brings together dozens of "articles, reviews, and introductions," from titles as various as Vogue, Decanter, The Sunday Times Wine Club newsletter Wine Times, and the journal you have in your hands, as well as snippets from Johnson's bestselling books-has many moments where the writing transcends the ostensible subject matter.'The World of Fine WineOne of the world's great authorities on wine, Hugh Johnson has been writing on the subject (among others) for almost six decades. This selection chronicles his personal take on developments that have revolutionised the industry for half a century and more.Johnson's prose describes as no one else can the endlessly fascinating characters and landscapes of the wine world. He tells of setting sail with sybarites and braving the perfect storm, he debates at length the Pleasure Principle, lip-smacks through decadent dinners, teaches and learns in Tokyo and files breathless dispatches from Beijing. He bids a poignant farewell to the loveliest vintages, decries peremptory judgement and urges the Slow Food philosophy; falls in love (again), this time with Tokaji, tells warm winter tales through a vintage port and sets out a summer picnic at the source of the Seine - all the while dryly annotating the scribbles of his younger self with contemporary marginal hindsights.This thoughtful, illuminating collection will delight not only lovers of wine, food, history and travel but also anyone who enjoys the intoxicating power of words.

    By John Hughes-Wilson
    Authors:
    John Hughes-Wilson
    A History of the First World War in 100 Objects, now reissued in paperback, narrates the causes, progress and outcome of the First World War by telling the stories behind 100 items of material evidence of that cataclysmic and shattering conflict.From weapons that created carnage to affectionate letters home and from unexpected items of trench decoration to the paintings of official war artists, the objects are as extraordinary in their diversity and story-telling power as they are devastating in their poignancy. Each object is depicted on a full page and is the subject of a short chapter that 'fans out' from the item itself to describe the context, the people and the events associated with it. Distinctive and original, A History of the First World War in 100 Objects is a unique commemoration of 'the war to end all wars'.
