Mortal coil : a short history of living longer by David Boyd Haycock( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 621 libraries worldwide
This title explores the medical, scientific and philosophical theories behind the quest for the prolongation of human life. It was something that intrigued Francis Bacon and underpinned the scientific revolution, while ideas of perfectability and indefinite worldly progress fed directly into the spirit of the Enlightenment
Paul Nash by David Boyd Haycock( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
"As a painter, illustrator and critic, Paul Nash (1889-1946) was at the forefront of British art in the first half of the twentieth century. Inspired by Willam Blake, Samuel Palmer and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, he produced some of the greatest paintings of the First and Second World Wars. In the intervening years he helped introduce the British avant-garde to the thrilling potential of European modernism, experimenting with abstraction and helping to establish the Surrealist movement in Britain. In this thoughtful and comprehensive survey, David Boyd Haycock explores the full course of Nash's eventful career, his profound love of the English landscape, and the psychological forces that led him to pursue a lifelong vision of flight."--Jacket
Health and medicine at sea, 1700-1900 ( file )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 297 libraries worldwide
"Maritime medicine, together with its links to the development of empire, is a burgeoning area of historical interest and enquiry. This book, based on extensive original research, explores the history of health and medicine in maritime and imperial contexts in a key period, reflecting the growing professionalization of medicine at sea from the establishment of the Sick and Hurt Board to the end of the Victorian era. The chapters, written by leading experts in the field, are grouped around two central themes: Royal Naval medical policy, administration and practice; and health and mortality relating to the migration of peoples across the globe, including slavery, emigration and indentured migration. The book will be of interest to a wide range of historians, particularly those working in the fields of maritime history, the history of medicine, and the history of colonialism and imperialism."--Jacket
A crisis of brilliance : five young British artists and the Great War by David Boyd Haycock( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
"Dora Carrington, Mark Gertler, Paul Nash, Christopher Nevinson, and Stanley Spencer were five of the most important British artists of the twentieth century. From diverse backgrounds, they met at The Slade in London between 1908 and 1910, in what was later described as the school's "last crisis of brilliance." Between 1910 and 1918 they loved, talked, and fought; they admired, conspired, and sometimes disparaged each others' artistic creations. They created new movements; they frequented the most stylish cafés and restaurants and founded a nightclub; they slept with their models and with prostitutes; and their love affairs descended into obsession, murder, and suicide."--Publisher's description
Framing and imagining disease in cultural history ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 221 libraries worldwide
Sooner or later most of us enter the kingdom of illness. Yet few understand how we translate ourselves into patients and what stories we tell ourselves about our body's maladies. Even if we knew, we harbour little sense of how we compare to the patients of the past, our doctors with theirs. In this book fourteen eminent cultural historians explore this hinterland between health and sickness, reality and fiction. Building on the work of Susan Sontag, Michel Foucault, Sander Gilman, and Roy Porter, they roam over five centuries and many countries to understand how doctors and patients constructed themselves. Included are such canonical figures as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas Mann, great English novelists, as well as dozens of minor figures - including patients and doctors - whose experiences and contributions to the debate have not yet been explored. Figures bordering on madness are probed, the hypnotized and drugged scrutinized, often in relation to their fantasy life, dreams and mesmeric states. And epidemics like cholera and tuberculosis are treated as living - almost breathing - cultural organisms. The authors conclude that the human understanding of illness always requires framing. That is, setting it within boundaries and borders: in the context of society's pressures, politic's demands, around the perimeter of language, narrative, and literary form

Paul Nash : the elements by Paul Nash( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
"This book examines the career of Paul Nash, official war artist and one of the great pioneers of British Modernism. David Fraser Jenkins interprets the artist's work in terms of theme and visual symbolism, bringing together paintings from different periods, and considering how the artist took elements from the visual world and recreated them within the terms of modern art, developing reoccurring themes such as conflict, refuge and harmony. There are additional essays by David Boyd Haycock on the influence of Thomas Browne and by Simon Grant on Nash's legacy in the contemporary art world. "Paul Nash: The Elements" will accompany an exhibition, curated by Jenkins, at Dulwich Picture Gallery, which begins in February 2010. It includes over sixty paintings and watercolours as well as a group of Nash's own photographs, accompanied by descriptions by both the artist and his critics, which are often remarkable in their disparity"--Publisher's description

I am Spain : the Spanish Civil War and the men and women who went to fight Fascism by David Boyd Haycock( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 117 libraries worldwide
George Orwell, Ernest Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn, Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, John Dos Passos, Felicia Browne, John Cornford, Stephen Spender? These were just some of the talented, committed and adventure-hungry men and women who travelled to Spain to join the struggle against General Franco's fascist rebellion. Through their personal letters, diaries and memoirs, David Boyd Haycock brings the experiences of these remarkable individuals? as well as many lesser-known but equally compelling figures? stunningly to life. He describes the mingled excitement and trepidation with which they set out for Spain, and the sheer relief that here at last was a chance to do something against the calamitous threat posed by Fascism. He evokes the glamour and the terror of wartime Barcelona, as Stalin's security forces lethally stifled all dissent and imposed Party orthodoxy. And he charts the painful disillusionment of a generation of men and women as they came to understand their impotence in the face of greater forces

Augustus John : drawn from life by David Boyd Haycock( Book )
2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
In the first three decades of the 20th century Augustus John (1878-1961) was widely considered one of the greatest living British artists, famous almost as much for his extraordinary Bohemian lifestyle as for his outstanding portraits, etchings and drawings. John was born in Wales in 1878 and educated at the Slade School of Art in London in the 1890s, where the onus of teaching was on the daily life class and a close study of the Old Masters. He soon emerged as a wonderfully gifted draughtsman - indeed, the American painter John Singer Sargent would declare that John's youthful drawings were amongst the fi nest seen since the Renaissance. Dividing his life between England, Wales and France, and reaching his prime in the years immediately before the outbreak of the Great War, by 1910 John would be likened to a British Gauguin, a Welsh Post-Impressionist using bold colours and a willfully naive and primitive style to explore the complex combination of romanticism, escapism and alienation engendered by 20th-century life
