Dietz, Helversen, Nill. This is an utterly brilliant book that covers all the bat species and many of the sub-species found across Britain, Europe and Northwest Africa with easy to read text and some stunning photographs (including one of a Greater Horseshoe that I am particularly partial to!). Dietz et al. introduces bats in the first few chapters, giving a superb insight into their biology and behaviour and their evolution and use of echolocation.
The issue of Britain’s relationship with the Continent has convulsed British politics for over fifty years
The issue of Britain’s relationship with the Continent has convulsed British politics for over fifty years. In 1963, President de Gaulle’s veto of Britain’s first application severely and perhaps fatally damaged Harold Macmillan’s Conservative administration. David Cameron’s administration too has been threatened by divisions over Europe, and that is one important motive for his proposal of renegotiation to be followed by an in/out referendum. The Labour Party also has been riven by conflict over Europe since Hugh Gaitskell broke with many of his supporters in 1962 by opposing British entry into the EEC.

Britain was part of the continent of Europe until the end of the last Ice Age (6,000 BC). It became an island when the lower-lying land under the present-day English Channel was flooded. The island was covered by dense woods full of wild animals and birds. The peoples known as the Celts had originated in central Europe, to the east of the Rhine in the areas now part of southern Germany, Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. From around 3,400 years ago, these proto-Celtic peoples expanded across the Continent. Establishing their bases in what is now Kent, through a series of battles the Romans subdued much of Britain in the short space of forty years.
