Set in Southern Scotland among a time of religious turmoil in the 17th century, Old Morality depicts a young soldier, Henry Morton, as he becomes involved with the armed struggle between two religious groups—the Covenanters and the Cavaliers. While the Cavaliers supported the church of England, Covenanters wished for Scotland to convert to pure Presbyterianism. With neither group accepting their differences, social tensions ran high in Scotland. This all comes to head at a competitive event hosted by Lady Margaret Bellenden, who is a loyal Covenanter. Described as a wapenshaw, a group of soldiers from varying backgrounds assembled to compete against each other. When Henry, the son of a Covenanter, defeats a Cavalier favorite, trouble follows. Though Henry is soon introduced to Lady Margaret Bellenden and her lovely daughter, Edith, his victory is short-lived as the competition arouses unhealthy and aggressive feelings among the opposing groups. After Henry stands up for a man being bullied by the Cavaliers, the two become friends. However, when Henry discovers a secret about his new friend, he is forced to become an outlaw, fleeing from the vindictive Cavalier patrols. Centered around true events of an uprising in 1679, Old Morality is praised as one of Sir Walter Scott’s best novels. Written in with a whimsical fashion, fascinating Scottish dialect, and flowing prose, critics appreciated the characters and descriptions featured in Old Morality, along with its delightful elements of romance, action, and adventure. Though published over two-hundred years ago, Old Morality depicts a serious struggle between religions, portraying themes and ideology that remains to be relevant to modern society, while simultaneously offering invaluable insight on the intriguing social and religious history of Scotland. This edition of Old Morality by Sir Walter Scott now features a striking new cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of Old Morality crafts an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original mastery and drama of Sir Walter Scott’s literature.

Old Mortality (1816), which many consider the finest of Scott's Waverley novels, is a swift-moving historical romance that places an anachronistically liberal hero against the forces of fanaticism in seventeenth-century Scotland, in the period infamous as the `killing time'. Its central character, Henry Morton, joins the rebels in order to fight Scotland's royalist oppressors, little as he shares the Covenanters' extreme religious beliefs. He is torn between his love for a royalist's granddaughter and his loyalty to his downtrodden countrymen. As well as being a tale of divided loyalties, the novel is a crucial document in the cultural history of modern Scotland. Scott, himself a supporter of the union between Scotland and England, was trying to exorcise the violent past of a country uncomfortably coming to terms with its status as part of a modern United Kingdom. This novel is in itself a significant political document, in which Scott can be seen to be attempting to create a new centralist Scottish historiography, which is not the political consensus of his own time, the seventeenth century, or today. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

"Fascinating.... Lays a foundation for understanding human history."—Bill Gates In this "artful, informative, and delightful" (William H. McNeill, New York Review of Books) book, Jared Diamond convincingly argues that geographical and environmental factors shaped the modern world. Societies that had had a head start in food production advanced beyond the hunter-gatherer stage, and then developed religion --as well as nasty germs and potent weapons of war --and adventured on sea and land to conquer and decimate preliterate cultures. A major advance in our understanding of human societies, Guns, Germs, and Steel chronicles the way that the modern world came to be and stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science, the Rhone-Poulenc Prize, and the Commonwealth club of California's Gold Medal.

*Winner of the Pulitzer Prize* A New York Times Book Review Top Ten Book* A National Book Award finalist * From Anthony Doerr, the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning author of Cloud Cuckoo Land, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).
