Night Train to Lisbon follows Raimund Gregorius, a 57-year-old Classics scholar, on a journey that takes him across Europe. Abandoning his job and his life and travelling with a dusty old book as his talisman, he heads for Lisbon in search of clues to the life of the book's Portuguese author, Amadeu de Prado. As he gets swept up in his quest, he finds that the journey is also one of self-discovery, as he re-encounters all the decisions he has made - and not made - in his life, and faces the roads not travelled.

Lisbon had a pivotal role in the history of World War II, though not a gun was fired there. The only European city in which both the Allies and the Axis power operated openly, it was temporary home to much of Europe's exiled royalty, over one million refugees seeking passage to the U.S., and a host of spies, secret police, captains of industry, bankers, prominent Jews, writers and artists, escaped POWs, and black marketeers. An operations officer writing in 1944 described the daily scene at Lisbon's airport as being like the movie “Casablanca,” times twenty. In this riveting narrative, renowned historian Neill Lochery draws on his relationships with high-level Portuguese contacts, access to records recently uncovered from Portuguese secret police and banking archives, and other unpublished documents to offer a revelatory portrait of the War's back stage. And he tells the story of how Portugal, a relatively poor European country trying frantically to remain neutral amidst extraordinary pressures, survived the war not only physically intact but significantly wealthier. The country's emergence as a prosperous European Union nation would be financed in part, it turns out, by a cache of Nazi gold.

Lisbon: city of the sea is a beautifully written portrait of a much loved city, from its origins in Greek legend to the present day. Malcolm Jack vividly captures the rich and unique history of this haunting and attractive port whose prominent position on the Tagus estuary has inextricablybound its character with the sea. Lisbon is a city of steep inclines and complicated, unsymmetrical streets that criss-cross the hills only in the Baixa area near the river and in the more modern, northern part of the city does any form of a grid system appear. It has enjoyed a political history that has directed Portugal’s focus more overseas than inland towards continental Europe, in part because of Spain’s geographical position. Thus the city has been stretched in one direction toward Brazil and in another toward the Cape of Good Hope and from there to Asia and the East. Beginning with its earliest inhabitants, Jack traces the city’s life through its imperial success in the sixteenth century and the devastating earthquake that humbled the city and shocked Europe in 1755 to its current position as a vibrant and successful European capital. Lisbon’s romantic atmosphere has captured the imaginations of foreigners through the ages._x000D_ Poets, writers and musicians have all drawn inspiration from different parts of Lisbon. This sensitive exploration of the city’s many aspects draws out its cosmopolitan nature, as well as its colourful culture and self-image and brings us closer to understanding its true spirit. Engaging and accessible, this book will appeal to Lisbon’s many visitors as well as anyone interested in European history._x000D_ _x000D_ ‘Malcolm Jack is a surefooted and erudite guide to the labyrinth of historical Lisbon. _x000D_ The city’s Moorish past, the age of discovery when Lisbon was the harbour from which the limits of the world were explored, the architectural splendours of the Manueline age, the desolation of the great earthquake of 1755, the Grand Tours of Beckford and Byron, the weird urban fantasies of Pessoa, the hauntingly nostalgic airs of fado _x000D_ - all are conjured up in this splendid book.’_x000D_ Robert Irwin, Historian, Arabist and novelist_x000D_ _x000D_ ‘A scholarly yet highly entertaining introduction to Lisbon. The author constantly draws on his extensive knowledge of contemporary travel literature but his main source of description and insight derives from his own, direct observation of all _x000D_ the nooks and crannies of old Lisbon and his unique ability to capture the spirit _x000D_ of the place. Recommended as essential reading for Lisbon lovers, prospective travellers, Lusophiles and others.’ _x000D_ Professor João Almeida Flor, University of Lisbon

Chief Warumbee sold Ten Miles Falls in 1678, and a century later, the first Lisbon settlement was established along the Androscoggin River. The water's mammoth power generated thousands of jobs and shaped a way of life for Lisbon's earliest citizens. Near beautiful cascading waterfalls, European immigrants found a magnificent place to share hard work, old-world customs, family traditions, and pride in their new home. Lisbon's history is as intricately woven as its fine Worumbo cloth. The town has suffered ravaging floods and fires, yet it has triumphed with the indomitable spirit of the community. In this volume, vivid photographs tell fascinating stories and carefully preserve the past for future generations.

Centered in the midst of the Columbiana County hills, Lisbon was founded in 1803. High hopes for growth and prosperity were first realized through industries producing iron, coal, and pottery; however, even with modern inventions, fascinating people, and hopes for a successful canal, the dream of becoming a city never materialized. During the Civil War, Confederate general John Hunt Morgan and his raiders threatened the community with invasion, but he ultimately surrendered to Union forces. Many political careers had links to Lisbon, including those of Congressman and Copperhead Clement Vallandigham, Sen. Marcus Hanna, Pres. William McKinley, and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court John Clarke. Intriguing families such as the “Fighting McCooks” added to the community’s history. Victorian homes abound, and today effort is put into the restoration of other Lisbon homes as well as businesses, creating genuine charm and interest while commercial and industrial progress stretches northward.

Before his assignment to the CIA's Cairo office, John worked in Lisbon, Portugal, where he took part in an extraordinary rendition-the apprehension of a wanted individual for interrogation. But from the beginning of the operation nothing goes as planned, and for John, it soon becomes much more than a career-defining moment; how he handles this crisis will define who he is as a person.

This report, from the European Union Committee (HLP 62-I, ISBN 9780104012420) is an impact assessment of the Treaty of Lisbon and seeks to inform the House of the most important aspects of the Treaty by comparing provisions with the status quo and assessing their impact on the institutions of the EU, Members States and on the UK. Divided into 12 chapters, with 7 appendices, the report covers the following areas, including: foundations of the European Union, where the Committee analyses the effects of the changes to the structure of EU treaties and the amendments made to the Union's values and objectives; the simplified treaty revision and how this can alter significantly the provisions on the face of all European Treaties; the impact of the Treaty on European institutions and what changes this will make to the European Council, including a full-time European Council President; the Lisbon Treaty gives the Charter of Fundamental Rights a legally binding status and whether the Charter's rights will create "new" rights in the UK and if the UK's existing labour and social legislation will be effected; the area of freedom, security and justice; how far does the Treaty change fundamental principles of foreign, defence and development policies; the impact of the Treaty on social affairs as well as finance and the internal markets; the impact on environment, agriculture and fisheries; also the new functions the Treaty gives national parliaments and the democratic challenge that poses; a summary of conclusions. The report does not seek to compare the Lisbon Treaty with the now abandoned Constitutional Treaty or the process by which the Lisbon Treaty was produced. Also the report does not address the question whether there should be a UK referendum on this Treaty. For the Committee, ratification of the Treaty is now a matter for Parliament.

'After Lisbon the EU has reached a new precarious stage in its development. New institutions have been created and policies reformed. The different chapters of this book cover the most important innovations, while providing a fresh critical assessment of the shortcomings of the present arrangements. Works are always in progress at the EU site and the authors provide the future architects of this grand building as well as the academic community with much food for thought.' – Roberto Caranta, University of Turin, Italy This comprehensive and insightful book discusses in detail the many innovations and shortcomings of the historic Lisbon version of the Treaty on European Union and what is now called the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. Divided into six parts, the 23 chapters provide 'after Lisbon' perspectives on law and governance of the EU, its powers and nature, the Charter of Fundamental Rights, EU external action and policy, justice and criminal policy, and economic governance. The authors, drawn from eleven EU Member States, offer a uniquely diverse and extensive coverage of the new EU law and policy after Lisbon. The book argues that while the Treaty of Lisbon has to be considered a milestone in the history of European integration, its shortcomings and open questions will make a future major treaty inevitable. The Treaty of Lisbon and the Future of European Law and Policy will appeal to postgraduate students and academics in European law and policy, EU institutions, diplomatic missions, lobbying, NGOs, specialised lawyers and governments.
