St George's Day has become a topic of debate as more and more organizations promote celebrations on 23 April and more people wave the flag of St George to proclaim their allegiance and identity. But who was St George? How did this Near Eastern martyr become England's patron saint and an icon of English culture? And what is his relevance for today's secular, multicultural England? New research reveals that from the third century St George was revered as a healer, protector of women and the poor and patron of agriculture and metal-working more than a military dragon-slayer. Discover the origin of the cross of St George and the roles of Richard I, Edward III and Henry VIII in making St George the patron saint of England. With a foreword by Professor Emeritus Dan Brown, this richly-illustrated celebration of English culture shows how St George can be reinterpreted for our times while remaining true to our English heritage. St George can be enlisted in the cause of ecology, the campaign against FGM, and the fight to end modern slavery and resettle refugees. English yet international, revered both by Christians and Muslims, St George is a multicultural figure who symbolizes universal values.

An epic of America in the 1960s and 1970s, SAINT GEORGE AND THE DRAGON is the thrilling story of a highly dangerous and illegal domestic CIA operation in the United States. In post-Watergate June 1976, veteran CIA counterinsurgency officer George Oldman Davies is assigned to hunt down and liquidate Justin Wertham, a charismatic student radical leader of the late Sixties turned terrorist.Set against the disillusionment and cynicism of the mid-1970s in the aftermath of the idealistic hopes of the Sixties, SAINT GEORGE AND THE DRAGON is both an exciting action-adventure story and a compelling political thriller about the death of the American Empire. It's told by its protagonist George Oldman Davies--a brilliant, tormented CIA man, terrifying, violent, all too human, and possibly evil, who represents the contradictions inherent in America. While undertaking an audacious Ché Guevara-style manhunt in the wilderness of Pennsylvania, George comes to realize that this test case for a proposed government program of domestic political assassination is certain to doom America just as it did ancient Rome. The intertwined fates of the secret policeman and the revolutionary inevitably collide--with devastating results for both. Wolcott Wheeler is a writer who lives in New York City. Shortly after graduating from Princeton University, he became a screenwriter for Columbia Pictures in Hollywood and later lived in Japan. He is also a historian, journalist, and literary and political essayist who has published academically. A published haiku poet, he is a comic book creator as well. To research SAINT GEORGE AND THE DRAGON, he conducted extensive interviews with major CIA officials such as Ray Cline, the former Director of Intelligence under JFK and LBJ; Robert Komer, ex-ambassador to South Vietnam and architect of the notorious Operation Phoenix; Green Berets; and other members of the U.S. intelligence community.
