  1. Relive the first one hundred years of Germany’s best two- and four-wheeled rides. Established in 1916, BMW is one of the auto and motorcycle industry’s oldest and most-respected car and motorcycle manufacturers. Over the past century, the company went through myriad developments. The BMW Century chronicles this remarkable transportation company through images of the cars and motorcycles it manufactured, from the 1923 R32 motorcycle to sleek electric cars of today. This handsome volume is filled with images, history, and in-depth looks at the incredible machines BMW created year after year. The BMW Century showcases how the company’s new visionary team systematically rebuilt BMW in the post-World War II years into the spectacular success we know today – that is, a company with sales projected to be upwards of two million cars annually by 2016, led by its 3-series, the best-selling luxury-performance car in the world. BMW’s motorcycle division is no less legendary. It began with the 1923 avant-garde R32, which featured a 180-degree, horizontally opposed twin, the engine configuration that would become BMW’s hallmark. Along the way, BMW would use that configuration to power groundbreaking machines like the R90S, R100RS, and R80GS. Beginning in 1983, they would add three- and four-cylinder machines to their offerings, culminating in today’s spectacular S1000RR sport bike. From the pre-war motorcycles to the iconic R-series twins of the 1970s and 80s to the mighty M-series cars and superbikes of today, The BMW Century offers a full review of German engineering at its finest. The book is illustrated with hundreds of historic, contemporary, and racing photographs – many sourced from BMW’s archives – and detailed text relating the BMW’s full history. This is the one volume no BMW aficionado can be without.

  2. Get a close look at every production motorcycle ever built by BMW. The Complete Book of BMW Motorcycles is a thorough year-by-year guide to every production machine ever built by Germany’s leading motorcycle manufacturer. All the classic bikes are here—pre-World War II BMWs such as the R5 that defined performance in that era; the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe; the Earles-forked R69S that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar; the R90S cafe racer; the K1 flying brick; and the GS (Gelande Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution, right up to today’s world- class S1000RR. All of BMW’s bike families are covered—the side-valve machines from the early years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, the four- and six-cylinder touring bikes, the early pushrod singles, the modern overhead-cam singles, the latest parallel twins, and inline four-cylinder sport bikes. From the first model, the R32 that launched BMW’s motorcycle dynasty, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World-Superbike-dominating S1000RR, The Complete Book of BMW Motorcycles captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence with a combination of historic and contemporary photos.Complete technical specifications for each model make this book a must-have for any serious BMW aficionado.

  1. The sign of the white and blue propeller circle has signified BMW since the 1930s: sporty, dynamic, radiating brilliance and timeless elegance. The mention of BMW brings to mind legendary cars like the pre-war 328, the 507 from the 1950s, or the M1 of the 1970s. But the name BMW also stands for attempts to lend mobility to a wide class of buyers, for example with the Isetta and the 700. In an historical overview, this book first tells the legendary history of the Bavarian automobile firm and goes back to its beginning, the traces of which are lost in the darkness of the First World War. This book introduces all car models in chronological order, from the “Wartburg Motorwagen” of 1898 to the Mini Roadster of 2012. it includes the following new models: BMW1 F20; BMW3 F30; BWM5 F10; BMW6 Gran Coupe; BMW X3 F25; BMW X5 E70; Mini Countryman; and, Mini Roadster R59.

  15. In Australia’s rush to commemorate allthings Anzac, have we lost our ability to look beyond war as the central pillarof Australia’s history and identity? Thepassionate historians of the Honest History group argue that while war has beenimportant to Australia – mostly for its impact on our citizens and our ideas ofnationhood – we must question the stories we tell ourselves about our history.We must separate myth from reality – and to do that we need to reassess thehistorical evidence surrounding military myths.Inthis lively collection, renowned writers including Paul Daley, Mark McKenna,Peter Stanley, Carolyn Holbrook, Mark Dapin, Carmen Lawrence, Stuart Macintyre, Frank Bongiornoand Larissa Behrendt explore not only the militarisation of our history but thealternative narratives swamped under the khaki-wash – Indigenous history,frontier conflict, multiculturalism, the myth of egalitarianism, economics andthe environment. `The Honest History group announced its arrival in 2013 with a clear, urgent purpose: to challenge the dominance of the Anzac legend in Australian popular memory. The group also took as its mission to remind Australians of the diversity of our history. The Honest History Book distils this approach in a series of compelling, highly readable essays by some of Australia’s most distinguished historians.’ – Michelle Arrow `An important book, both timely and compelling: timely because it provides a powerful and much-needed riposte to the current practice of elevating military history above all other aspects of the nation’s past.’ – Henry Reynolds `This book not only offers a vital corrective to the flimflams and taradiddles of Anzackery, but also gives us a new collection of fascinating essays on Australian history. Complex, inclusive, balanced, disruptive and – crucially – evidence-based, The Honest History Book is destined to provide a much-needed talking point for teachers, journalists, general readers and, with any luck, politicians and policy makers.’ – Clare Wright
