Captain Boycott and the Irish by Joyce Marlow( Book )
12 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 532 libraries worldwide
Captain Charles Cunningham Boycott of Her Majesty's Foot is one of the very few individuals whose names have entered the language- we use "boycott" as both a noun and a verb, and the term exists in tongues other than English as well. Boycott himself was a limited man, literal and unbending, of minimal importance. But what he represented, and the action taken against him marked an important stage in the always smoldering, sometimes violent conflict between Ireland and England. In the late 1870s, the Irish question comprised two essential issues: Home Rule, a political movement whose leader was the able M.P. Charles Steward Parnell; and the Irish Land League, a grass-roots organization of tenant farmers with grievances against their absentee English landlords, led by the romantic revolutionary Michael Davitt. When Parnell and Davitt joined forces in 1880, and with the addition of American-Irish financial and moral support, the potential for violence in Ireland increased exponentially. The world's press gathered for the explosion. When the action came, though, it was remarkably tame. In a speech in County Mayo, near the Boycott acreage, Parnell urged the disgruntled tenants to "shun" their landlords, and Boycott's farmers shunned him with a vengeance, while there was a full potato crop to be harvested. An English expeditionary force marched in from Ulster, but torrential rains and the Englishmen's ineptness at digging up potatoes let the whole affair degenerate from threatened violence into farce. Even so, this first "boycott" enabled Prime Minister Gladstone to introduce the first Home Rule Bill in Parliament, and legislation was initiated to improve the land laws for Irish tenants. And, though he hardly understood its significance, Captain Boycott found his surname the label for effective nonviolent action taken against economic or social complaints. -- Publisher description

The Virago book of women and the Great War, 1914-18 by Joyce Marlow( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 267 libraries worldwide
"Women of all ages, classes and creeds describe their lives as wartime surgeons, nurses, foresters, censors, bus conductors, police constables, train drivers, bank clerks and munition workers. They inaugurated concerts for British troops or served with the armed forces; coped with air raids and food shortages; drove temperamental vehicles. Some of the contributors are familiar - Vera Brittain, Millicent Garrett Fawcett, the Pankhurst family - but many have been forgotten or are unknown. Together they make this anthology an indispensable, often very moving, guide to the Women's war."--Jacket
