Jan Matzeliger felt anything but welcome in Philadelphia in 1873. As well as being a foreigner, Jan was half African American, which meant that most doors were closed to him. Although the Civil War had been over for nearly ten years, inequality for African Americans still persisted in its aftermath. However, Jan refused to let prejudice keep him from achieving his dream of making a shoe-lasting machine to replace the tedious, time-consuming hand sewing that held up shoe manufacturing processes in his day.

Author: M. Hunt, Alison Maloney
There's nothing quite as expressive as a swear word for those hit-the-thumb-with-the-hammer moments. It helps to relieve the pain in a way that 'Oh, my gosh!' simply can't duplicate. Taking a light-hearted look at profanity through the ages, The Joy of Swearing lays bare the first and most famous instances of swearing - on radio and TV, in film, music and literature - as well as tracing the roots of some of our most commonly used swear words. Along the way, it reveals some surprises, too - seemingly innocent words in everyday use that would shock your granny if she knew what they really meant!
