Peter Williams's photographs capture the fantasies and enterprises of the eccentric (or perhaps simply enthusiastic) English . As these nostalgic and stylish pictures show, the seaside clearly hasn't lost its distinctive charm.

English Seaside book. There is a powerful sense of place at the seaside  .

There is a powerful sense of place at the seaside. You know what to expect. Fishing villages usually have a pier, boats, lobster pots, and masses of seagulls while resort towns have esplanades, piers, grand hotels and gardens. Certain seaside towns have just about everything: Weymouth, for example, has a grand parade of hotels, a wide esplanade and a small fishing village. ISBN13:9781848021259.

Format Paperback 208 pages. It tells the story almost entirely in photographs after a foreword, and captures well the atmosphere of seaside towns, whether sedate or raucous, their views, amenities and curious quirks. - Mark Smulian Journal of the Islington Archaeology & History Society, Summer 2014 show more.

As the first glimpse of sunshine warmed some of us this week, what better book to get us in the mood for summer than this bright and breezy collection of the best of the English seaside. From rows of bathing huts to gaudy fairgrounds and tired B&Bs, this will have you longing for a deckchair and a 99 from Henry’s Beach Shop on the Isle of Wight (pictured).

Peter Williams is a bright, young British philosopher and a skilful debater with whom I had the privilege of partnering in our Cambridge Union Society debate in 2011. I recommend his work enthusiastically. ISBN-13: 978-1842277706. In his new book, Peter Williams points out that Lewis has anticipated many of the arguments now being put forward by the "New" Atheists and has already refuted them. Instead of taking on notables, such as Richard Dawkins, in battles over the interpretation of empirical evidence, Williams' book draws upon Lewis to strike at the philosophical roots of the New Atheist worldview.

There is a powerful sense of place at the seaside. You know what to expect. Fishing villages usually have a pier, boats, lobster pots, and masses of seagulls while resort towns have esplanades, piers, grand hotels and gardens. Certain seaside towns have just about everything: Weymouth, for example, has a grand parade of hotels, a wide esplanade and a small fishing village. Blackpool has more of everything - three piers, miles of hotels, the Tower, Winter Gardens, trams, illuminations - but no fishing and no castle! There is something about the seaside that brings out the beating heart of John Bull in the English: doggedly erecting our wind-breaks to capture every vestige of a watery sun; wrestling with deckchairs; wrapping up against the determined wind on the verandas of our beach huts; accepting that 'sand' in 'sandwich' means just that! But we still love it and nowhere else in the world can match its myriad charms and eccentricities. For too long the English seaside has suffered from bad press, accused of being tatty, cold grey and windswept. Peter Williams' evocative photographs in this fully revised edition of his acclaimed book will make you want to rediscover what a fantastic place the seaside is - full of character, charm and 'Englishness'.
