It Isn’t Done

Taboo Among the British Islanders

Archibald Lyall

Originally published in 1930

"An admirably brisk attack on taboos." Observer

"An amusingly provocative little essay." Bystander

A witty and interesting contribution to the study of what may and may not be done in the British Isles.




Or the Press of Today and Tomorrow

David Ockham

Originally published in 1927

"Vigorous and well-written, eminently readable." Yorkshire Post

This volume analyzes the press of the early twentieth century, and what actually constitutes news; to what degree public opinion is manipulated by the press, the rise of the tabloid press and the press of the future.



Nuntius, or Advertising and its Future

Gilbert Russell

Originally published in 1926

"Expresses the philosophy of advertising concisely and well." Observer

This volume discusses the birth of modern advertising, the need for controls within the profession, the effectiveness of advertising and the economics of it.

Contents include:

  1. Advertising Today: An Economic Necessity
  2. Advertising Today: A Social Service
  3. Advertising Tomorrow




Or the Future of Censorship

William Seagle

Originally published in 1930

"Packed with the most useful information and with the most interesting deductions and analysis." Time and Time

"This brilliant and witty book" Times Literary Supplement

This volume attacks the subject of censorship from numerous aspects. It surveys censorship in the past and analyzes the present-day situation. The author prophesizes a neo-Victorian campaign, which like its predecessors will inevitably fail.
