This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt's Norfolk, part of the distinctive 'Slow travel' series of guides to UK regions, remains the only full-blown standalone guide available to this county of contrasts, from the fine medieval city of Norwich to the watery wilderness of the Broads and the sweeping beaches of the superlative north Norfolk coast. As well as featuring all the main sights, Bradt's Norfolk covers places and aspects of the region not detailed by other guidebooks and has a special emphasis on car-free travel, walking, local food and pubs. It also includes personal anecdotes and the views of local people as well as tapping into the Norfolk-based author's considerable knowledge of the region. Making a virtue of being selective, the guide points visitors to the cream of the area, but includes the whole of Norfolk from Great Yarmouth and the Broads in the east to the Fens of the far west, from the iconic north Norfolk coast to the Breckland region to the south. Places to eat and drink are selected by the author based upon long-standing knowledge of the area, in particular delving into aspects of local distinctiveness and character. Flora and fauna are also covered, detailing the many wildlife sites within the county that are home to rare species, including the iconic Swallowtail butterfly, and information is provided on many of the best birdwatching spots. Hiking and biking, literary and artistic connections, canoeing and water-based activities, local food and drink, and all the practical information you could need are included, helping to make this the must-have guide for all visitors to this beguiling county. Written in an entertaining style combining personal narrative with authoritative information, Bradt's Norfolk has all the most up-to-date information you could need for a successful visit.
Beer is widely defined as the result of the brewing process which has been refined and improved over centuries. Beer is the drink of the masses – it is bought by consumers whose income, wealth, education, and ethnic background vary substantially, something which can be seen by taking a look at the range of customers in any pub, inn, or bar. But why has beer became so pervasive? What are the historical factors which make beer and the brewing industry so prominent? How has the brewing industry developed to become one of the most powerful global generators of output and revenue? This book answers these and other related questions by exploring the history of the beer and brewing industry at a global level. Contributors investigate a number of aspects, such as the role of geographical origin in branding; mergers, acquisitions, and corporate governance (UK, European and US perspectives); national and international political economy; taxation and regulation (including historical and contemporary practice); national and international trade flows and distribution networks; and historical trends in the commercialisation of beer. The chapters in this book were originally published as online articles in Business History.
Large industrial enterprises are an important phenomena in advanced Western economies. They control large percentages of total industrial assets, employ millions of workers and together with their dependent satellite firms produce their own spatial patterns of employment, location of production capacity and flow of material and information, and thus dominate the economic base of whole towns. This study, first published in 1980, surveys a massive amount of work on large industrial firms, and features an in-depth study of the growth of large industrial enterprises in the UK brewing industry from 1951-76. This illustrates many of the themes discussed in the book.
