When eccentric industrialist William Potts and his wife Mildred adopt Rosie, orphaned in a railway crash, they almost rue the day. Born in the East End, Rosie is pugnacious and difficult. But one summer day, standing on a Kentish hillside, she sees a kite rise high into the sky, and knows that in the future she too must fly. William Potts becomes involved in the race to conquer the science of flight, and with his gentle daughter Polly interested only in painting, it is the hoydenish Rosie who works indefatigably alongside him in the workshop. But William will not countenance the idea of a woman flying. The ambitious and skilled Harry Clairville Jones brings further tensions to the venture. By 1906 their flying machine, Pegasus, is almost ready. Into this smouldering situation comes a man with a hard upbringing and bitter-sad memories, who has as deep a love of the air as Rosie herself. Jake Smith's arrival sparks off a deadly rivalry. And the triumph of flight twists inexorably into tragedy and a harrowing world war.

There are numerous examples of how religion and nationalism intertwine. In some cases, a common religion is the fundamental marker of a nation’s identity, whereas in others secular nationalism tries to hold together people of different religious beliefs. This book examines the link between religion and nationalism in contemporary polities. By exploring case studies on India, Russia, Israel, Canada, Chechnya, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Belgium, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sri Lanka, Catalonia and the Basque Country, it seeks to understand the relationship between these two key societal forms of diversity and assess the interaction between religious and nationalist perspectives. Expert contributors examine a variety of phenomena, including secular nationalism, secessionism, and polities in which religious pluralism is evolving. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, religion and politics, nationalism, federalism, secession, political philosophy, racial and ethnic politics and comparative politics.
