Amelia Hartliss is used to seeing the worst of human nature, but even she is shocked to see that unscrupulous criminals have made it their business to rip off the most generous charity in Salford....

Mike and Jane were lucky to be there when a new social movement swept England from Canada. It was called 'Living the New Economy'. But what's so 'new' about these ideas? Jane and Mike have come... More > across them before. Firstly, while living in Fallowfield, Manchester, and struggling to bring up young children. They found they couldn't manage without the help and support of their neighbours. Then, when they moved to Salford, they found that this way of life had been taken for granted over the last few generations. Money was tight and work uncertain; the people of Inner City Salford had to find ways to cope, and that meant helping each other. In some ways, they had invented the 'sharing economy' on their own, building on traditions of close-knit families and neighbourliness. Jane and Mike heard these stories when recording contributions for their weekly show on Salford City Radio. In this book they discuss what they've learned and think about what life could be like in a world that takes such things seriously.< Less
Sit Down! Listen to This! By Bill Sykes
eBook (ePub): $9.22
Roger Eagle was a towering figure in British popular music. Uniquely his influence straddled the cultural divide separating Manchester and Liverpool. The task of unifying the musical talents of these... More > two cultural hubs has proved beyond almost everyone. The sole exception is the subject of this book -- a man whose influence can still be felt today. In any scene there needs to be a personality capable of leading a generation towards a new sound and consequently new tastes and fashions. What is unusual about Roger Eagle is his formative role in the development of at least three and arguably four such music scenes that altered the course of music in Britain between the mid sixties and early nineties. From the Blues explosion of the mid sixties, via the birth of Northern Soul to the pioneering Beatles defying spirit of Merseyside's New Wave and the re-birth of Manchester music, close friend and former neighbour Bill Sykes charts Roger's continued influence on the music scenes in both cities.< Less

Amelia Hartliss is called 'Heartless' by her friends and foes alike, and with good reason. But at least she has always had the assurance, up to now, that she was doing wrong for the right reason. Now... More > she isn't so sure: she has been forced by her boss to infiltrate a conspiracy at the top level of local government, development organisations and health bodies in the North of England, and the depths of depravity sicken her, despite her many years of experience and a feeling she had that she had 'seen everything'. Not quite; human beings have an unlimited capacity to disappoint, as one victim puts it, and Melia has to use all her determination and ingenuity to foil a dastardly terrorist plot to poison the water supply of a major city. But worse, the conspirators are poisoning the minds of the local population too, and turning them against the weakest members of society. It's truly sickening.< Less
World War One - Memories By Ordsall Trust
Hardcover: $25.69
Prints in 3-5 business days
The people of Ordsall in inner city Salford paid out of their own money to commemorate their relatives and neighbours who suffered and fell in The Great War, 1914-18. But this monument was moved in... More > 1988 when the area around Regent Park was being partly demolished and regenerated. A generation later, the new residents got together and arranged to put the Memorial stone back in its original place, proudly in the middle of Regent Park, in time for a ceremony for Armistice Day in November 2015. Meanwhile members of Ordsall Trust were grateful to have received a grant from the Heritage Lottery to research the names on Ordsall War Memorial and look into whether there were any surviving relatives still living locally. This quest took them further afield, across the whole of Salford and beyond, but people were discovered who had stories to tell and memories to share. A film was made and a book prepared. This is the book.< Less
