Sentenced to seven years in prison for aggravated assault, twenty-three year old Heather Compton is faced with the single most difficult choice of her life. Spend her time in the misery of solitary confinement and hopefully be out in five years for good behavior, or live every second of those seven years in luxury in exchange for a life of servitude. Doing what any self-preserving young woman with a fear of confined spaces would do, she opted for the latter – setting into motion a string of events that would see someone she loved deeply brought into the lifestyle as well.

An innovative volume of fifteen interdisciplinary essays at the nexus of material culture, performance studies, and game theory, Playthings in Early Modernity emphasizes the rules of the game(s) as well as the breaking of those rules. Thus, the titular "plaything" is understood as both an object and a person, and play, in the early modern world, is treated not merely as a pastime, a leisurely pursuit, but as a pivotal part of daily life, a strategic psychosocial endeavor.

John and Elizabeth Newson were well known for their studies of child rearing, which have combined a rigorous research methodology with sympathetic insights into family life and a lively approach to scientific reporting. ‘Path-breaking’, ‘brilliant’, ‘seminal’, ‘outstanding’, ‘fascinating’, ‘enthralling’ and ‘enchanting’ are some of the adjectives used by critics to describe their previous books. They now turn their attention to toys, the ‘pegs on which children hang their play’, a study for which they are uniquely qualified. Not only had they long experience in normal child development: they had been actively involved for many years in research and training in remedial play for disabled children, their research unit was a major influence in the phenomenal development of the toy libraries self-help movement, they designed for and advised the toy industry, and they had their own family-run specialist toyshop. With this background, it is not surprising that their book on toys and playthings is both informative and entertaining on many different fronts. Richly observant, it follows the child’s development in play from using the mother or father as the ‘first and best toy’, through the exploratory and manipulative sequences, to the use of toys in ritual, symbolic or contemplative ways. Against this detailed understanding of ‘ordinary’ children’s growth points in play, the Newsons and their collaborators examine the special needs of disabled children, with a firm emphasis on how parents can help. What is more, in providing an intensely practical guide for the parents and teachers of the disabled child, they draw out comparative insights which are enlightening and absorbing for those whose children do not have such urgent problems. Once again the Newsons share with the reader the viewpoints and preoccupations of research workers in the field. There is indeed a continual sense of ‘work in progress’, and nowhere more than in the chapter on using toys for developmental assessment, where the reader is given a hot line to a laboratory (i.e. playroom) notes used in their own research unit at the time in a welcome move away from the rigid test-bound assessment of ‘special’ children. The book is enriched by the authors’ sharp awareness that the history of playthings has a far longer perspective than the history of child psychology. They are not basically interested in educational toys as such, but in all the objects, made or found, on which the child hones his skill, his reasoning powers, his imagination, his emotions or his sense of humour. Fairground baubles, joke toys and poppy-head dolls are as much a part of this book as bricks, sorting boxes and teddy bears. In the Newsons’ own words: ‘We hope that people who simply like toys as objects will find something in this book to interest them; we suspect, indeed, that liking toys will be what all readers, whatever their reason for opening the book, have in common’.

WARNING: This is not a traditional love story. This book is fiction and contains material readers may find offensive. This is the updated version that contains the happily ever after epilogue. Ruby Jacobson wanted a new life, but it seems fate gives her a twisted version of it. Taken from her bed, and sold like an object, Ruby believes death is a far better outcome then what fate has in store for her. Or so she thought. Gavin Darris has always desired the darker pleasures in life. Normally not one to purchase his playthings, he needs a woman who will bend to his will, and derive pleasure from it, too. He sees Ruby, one of the many women for sale, and he wants her as he's never wanted anything else before. She has a fire in her eyes and a determination not to yield. She looks like a fighter and is exactly what he is looking for. Making her submit will be almost as pleasurable as finally sating the darkness inside of him. He is ruthless in what he wants, and what he wants is Ruby. The dark desires Ruby has felt inside of her are about to be tempted in the most horrifying of ways. She should hate Gavin and fear everything he represents, but she can't deny that her body aches for his touch. He tells her she is his; that he owns every part of her, and everything inside of her knows that is the truth. Faced with the ultimate decision, Ruby must choose to escape and gain her freedom, or stay with Gavin, the monster whose delicious punishment makes her yearn for more. Both are frightening.

Prison is a dark satire exploring themes of confinement and free will. In a hall-of-mirrors Britain, malcontents are held in the ancient, city-sized penitentiary known simply as Prison. Edwin Norris, a dissatisfied showbiz reporter, tries to launch a serious career by investigating the place, only to become a captive himself. Journeying through the grotesque dominions of Prison, Edwin is subject to re-education, joins a protest that becomes a riot and narrowly escapes being tortured to death. His injuries are healed only for him to be used in a medical experiment. Later, he witnesses the prostitution of inmates, tastes prison work and prison privilege. In the course of these episodes he encounters crooks and chancers, sadistic gaolers, evil scientists, drag queens, a mysterious helper, a lover and more. As his ordeal threatens to engulf him, Edwin questions the worth of his own existence. At the last, with an amnesty within reach, he makes a discovery that forces him to decide what to make of his life.
