Dracula Unearthed takes the lid off Stoker's most famous novel. With the aid of 3,400 textual endnotes and annotations, new light is shed on its sources, characters and structure. Stoker never went to Transylvania, so how could he describe it so graphically? Prior to Dracula, he had never written about vampires, so how could he make them so believable? Contemporary critics seemed oblivious to Dracula's sexual undercurrents, so how did he disguise its eroticism? These and many other questions ...

The resonant and awesome figure of Count Dracula. his Transylvanian lair, and his powers of supernatural evil, have imprinted themselves on the popular imagination, largely through the medium of the cinema.

This is the first in-depth critical study of Stoker's many-faceted novel, which has so...

Take an elegant, stately cruise ship ... Add 800 cantankerous pensioners ... Send them off to the Amazon for six weeks ... Ask the passengers to keep diaries ... Then publish those diaries! And what do you get? Murder on the Marco Polo - Well, Not Quite. On 10 January 2011 the cruise ship Marco Polo sailed from Tilbury for six weeks to the Amazon and the Orinoco.

The story of Wimbledon FC is among the most astonishing Cinderella tales in the history of the English game. The clubs achievements have no equal. Winning the FA Amateur Cup in 1963, they were elected to the Southern League and promoted to the Premier Division at the first attempt. Championships followed in 1975, 1976, and 1977. These, coupled with headline-grabbing performances in the FA Cup against Burnley, Leeds, and Middlesbrough, opened the door to admission to the Football League. So...

Priscilla Wong had had six boyfriends. Because she did not marry the first or second, her classmates called her a prostitute. Yet she was still a virgin. A virgin whore. Perhaps the contradiction could only exist in China. I grew fond of the idea, for it seemed a perfect caricature of China as a whole - rich history coexisting with drab modernity, corruption with innocence, membership of the nuclear club while burdened with poverty. Clive Leatherdale found himself caught up in the student ...

The scariest place on earth.' So said President Bill Clinton on his visit to the no-man's land between South and North Korea. The minefields and barbed wire mark the jagged edge of world peace. If the world is to see a nuclear war, Korea is the likely flashpoint. The contrast between the two Koreas - the dynamism of the South confronting the oppression of the North - could not be more stark. Yet, as the author reveals, Koreans from both sides exhibit similarities of thought and perception....

The recent history of Aberdeen FC is among the most eye-catching of any British club. It was not always so. Created in 1903, Aberdeen FC were for many years dismissed as provincial under-achievers. By 1966 when this book takes up their story the Dons had won the Scottish championship just once in 63 years. The dramatic rise in Aberdeens fortunes is due partly to a succession of dynamic managers and partly to the widened horizons provided by European competition. Aberdeen became formidable o...
