Do you know a budding historian? Do you want to give the gift knowledge and history? Look no further than this newspapers of the 1950s book, which collates genuine newspaper coverage from the LA Times throughout the 1950s. This book uses reportage to plot a fascinating history to offer unrivalled insight into years gone by. After World War II’s upheaval, this book focuses on post-war Germany as occupation troops leave the nation and a new government is selected. The book covers the conflict in Korea in extensive detail, up to the eventual July 1953 truce. It also contains various reports on the Cold War and charts the death of Stalin in March 1953. Rising Cuban tensions and Suez Crisis are also documented in unrivalled detail.

On a brighter note, the book covers the monumental coronation of the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. On the political side, there is plenty on Eisenhower’s two terms, including the landslide election victory over Adlai E. Stevenson in 1956. You can also read about the creation of the H bomb, and the Russians launch of their satellite to orbit the earth, along with a second satellite with a dog on board. For added charm, personalise this book with a name and presentation message.

Not only the quality of the product but the superb customer service. The accessibility, the care and promptness I experienced with Yvette is laudable. Thank you Yvette, I am happy you replied to my inquiry. I would use and recommend the company In The Book without hesitation.

If you've seen or used a Haynes car…

If you've seen or used a Haynes car manual, then you'll appreciate the humour im this one!! A great gift for any car person/people, who've just got married or not!! Well worth it as a present, as it is quite funny......or at least the parts that I quickly read before wrapping it up as a present. It was delivered quickly, within a few days too.

Smaller than a Hayes manual

Lovely book. Only personalised on the front cover & on one page inside. A smaller size than the original Haynes manual. It’s ok for the money. Nice enough gift

Very good quality, had a very personalised feel.....others have that 'squeezed a name in and it still looked out of place' feel. Would recommend.
