Princes at War : the British Royal Family's Private Battle in the Second World War by Deborah Cadbury( Book )
10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
The five sons of King George V and Queen Mary were very different characters, with very different strengths and weaknesses, all of whom were brought up to fulfil different roles within the Royal Family; until the eldest of the brothers rejected his role as King of England and plunged the family into crisis. The personal lives of the British Royals were successfully kept out of the public eye by mutual agreement of the press and royal family, but this all changed in 1936 when King Edward VIII abdicated the throne and spurned his responsibility for the sake of the glamorous American socialite and divorcee, Wallis Simpson. During the Second World War, though the world's press focused on the far more public conflict tearing nations apart, the royal romance provided light relief for the British public. But this relationship had a darker side, and in Princes at War, Deborah Cadbury reveals evidence that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor colluded with Hitler to take back the British throne from Edward's younger brother, King George VI, should Germany prevail in the War. Drawing on new research and recently released files, Deborah Cadbury shows that not only did George VI have to battle to lead his country but battle constantly to keep his brothers, and especially his older brother, in check

The feminization of nature : our future at risk by Deborah Cadbury( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 175 libraries worldwide
"Starting with a single clue, the sharp rise in the incidence of testicular cancer in recent years, this book follows an extraordinary detective trail as scientists uncover disturbing evidence of adverse changes in human reproduction and health. A dramatic fall in sperm counts over the last fifty years has been reported in Europe and America, together with an increase in sex-organ abnormalities of baby boys. In the same time-scale other reproductive cancers have also increased, most noticeably breast and prostate cancer. These alterations to human reproduction are mirrored by extraordinary changes in wildlife: from Florida panthers with undescended testes to male fish in a British river producing high levels of the female egg-yolk protein, there are species showing signs of 'feminization', or even 'changing sex'. The experimental evidence points to a common link between all these changes: alterations in exposure to the female hormone oestrogen." "Recently it has been discovered that many synthetic chemicals can act like weak oestrogens, imitating the female hormone and other hormones. More frightening still, these are chemicals to which we are all exposed, substances which we are eating, drinking and bathing in. Furthermore, unlike the natural hormone oestrogen, which is active in the body for hours at most, some of these hormone-mimicking chemicals can accumulate in our body fat and linger in our tissues for years." "Could there be a connection between these two threads of scientific research? This book examines the compelling evidence and presents the views of leading scientists in the field."--Jacket
Chocolate wars : from Cadbury to Kraft-200 years of sweet success and bitter rivalry by Deborah Cadbury( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
In the early nineteenth century Richard Cadbury sent his son, John, to London to study a new and exotic commodity: cocoa. Within a generation, John's sons had created a chocolate company to rival the great English firms of Rowntree and Fry. All three firms were Quaker family enterprises, and their business aims were infused with religious idealism. As chocolate companies raced to compete around the globe, Quaker capitalism met a challenge that would eventually defeat it. At the turn of the millennium Cadbury, the sole survivor of England's chocolate dynasties, was the world's largest confectionery company. But before long the chocolate wars culminated in a multi-billion pound showdown pitting independence and Quaker tradition against the cut-throat tactics of a corporate leviathan

Seven wonders of the industrial world. the Hoover dam ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
This program, the final in the acclaimed Seven Wonders of the Industrial World series, follows the story of The Hoover Dam, a structure standing sixty stories high with a larger volume than the Great Pyramid at Giza. In 1902, engineer Arthur Powell-Davis dreamed of creating the largest dam ever and taming the Colorado River. With electricity and irrigation, the deserts of the west would bloom and the face of America would change forever. Powell-Davis's dreams turned to nightmares as twenty years passed in legal wrangling until the desperate conditions of the Great Depression revitalised the scheme which became a symbol of hope for thousands. The ruthless and dedicated engineer Frank Crowe took charge and many lives were lost, as the entire Colorado River had to be diverted to make way for the construction. They built four mammoth tunnels through nearly a mile of rock using innovative contraptions called drilling jumbos. These trucks, stacked tall with tiers of 24-30 drills, would back up against the rock face to bore holes for the explosive. Carbon monoxide poisoning and injuries from cave-ins were common as men struggled deep underground with power tools and dynamite. Safety was sacrificed for speed. Work then began on the dam itself. At its base workers removed over half a million cubic yards of mud before reaching the bedrock foundation. Most endangered of all were the "high scalers" who had to swing right out over the sides of the Grand Canyon to blast the canyon walls to create a smooth surface for the concrete. The rock face was a maze of live air hoses, electrical lines and other climbers. The men soon improvised the first use of hard hats by coating cloth hats with coal tar. By June 1933, they began pouring concrete and continued for the next two years, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. On February 1 1935, the diversion tunnels were blocked. The Colorado resumed her natural course and the dam went into operation
