Racism and Anti-Racism in Football
Jon Garland
0333730798
Oct 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book explores the key issues of racism, anti-racism and identity in British football. It relates the history of black players in the game, analyzes the racism they have experienced, and evaluates the efficacy of anti-racist campaigns. The efficacy of the policing of racism is also assessed. The nationalism and xenophobia evident in much of the media's coverage of major tournaments is highlighted in the context of the way that English, Scottish, and Welsh identities are constructed within British football.


Almost Midnight: An American Story of Murder and Redemption
Michael W. Cuneo
0312936753
August 2005
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Darrell Mease, the Ozarks-born convicted murderer who got a death row intervention from Pope John Paul II in 1998 (the execution was to take place on the day the Pope visited St. Louis), is at the center of this true crime saga. Cuneo (American Exorcism) follows Mease from his religious upbringing in the backwoods of Missouri, through his tour in Vietnam and baptism into the crystal methamphetamines trade to his love affair with Mary Epps and brutal murder of a drug kingpin, his wife and disabled grandson. Cuneo looks closely at Mease's time in prison, where he rediscovers religion and, while professing "God is my lawyer," is miraculously delivered from lethal injection just as he predicted he would be. Cuneo's detailed descriptions of the virtues (loyalty, self-reliance, faith, family) and negatives (violence,...

Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Gr. 2-4. In this book from the Road to Reading series, Stanley discusses wild horses around the world. Laid out with fairly large type and illustrated with attractive, soft-focus paintings in warm colors, the book begins with the horses of prehistoric times and ends with a heartening message of people working together to save wild horses in many locales. In between, short chapters focus on the wild horses of the Camargue in France, wild ponies on Virginia's Assateague and Chincoteague islands, the wild horses in the mountains "between France and Spain," the Exmoor horses of Britain, the yellow horses of Mongolia, the brumbies of the Australian outback, and the mustangs of Colorado, Nevada, and Wyoming. Though more (and better) maps and more precise information (where in Britain? what are the mountains called?) would have...

"A coming-of-age story and a thrilling chronicle of a remarkable era in U.S. history." --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The relationship between the homeless and the social service community marks a border where the disenfranchised meet the mainstream of society. Crossing the Border, the first book-length study of outreach work to the mentally ill homeless, uses ethnographic tools to examine encounters at this border. Michael Rowe provides a rich picture not only of a particular group of homeless people, but also of the complicated interactions between the marginalized and those who try to help them.

The Mammoth Book of Ancient Roman Whodunnits
Mike Ashley (Editor)
0786712414
August 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A host of totally new stories written by some of the most popular writers of historical mysteries brings to life the glorious and nefarious world that for nearly a thousand years—from the founding of the Republic in 510 B.C. to the deposing of the last emperor, Romulus, in 476 A.D.—was ancient Rome. Events from the turbulent reigns of Julius Caesar, Augustus, Caligula, and Nero provide the colorful background to tales ingeniously contrived by contributors like Paul Doherty, Gillian Bradshaw, and Richard Butler. While John Maddox Roberts offers a new SPQR story, Steven Saylor, Marilyn Todd, Rosemary Rowe, Darrell Schweitzer, and Michael Kurland challenge their sleuths Gordianus the Finder, Claudia, Libertus, Pliny the Younger, and Quintilian with baffling new cases. Mary Reed and Eric Mayer conjure new...

When the Tuna Went Down to Texas: How Bill Parcells Led the Cowboys Back to the Promised Land
Mike Shropshire
0060572116
August 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"Are you kidding me?" asked a Sports Illustrated story in early 2003, shortly after autocratic Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hired equally autocratic Bill Parcells ("The Big Tuna") as head coach of his NFL franchise. It was a sentiment repeated throughout the world of professional football, a world in which the fortunes of the Cowboys had declined after three consecutive 5–11 seasons, and a world Shropshire seeks to expose in this uneven examination of the Cowboys' 2003 season. Shropshire (Seasons in Hell; etc.), a writer for Playboy, Sports Illustrated and Slate.com, takes a magnifying glass to the Cowboys' amazingly improbable 10–6 record in Parcells's first season. He plumbs coaching philosophies, quarterback controversies and locker-room gossip, seeking to understand the reason for the team's...

Southampton Row

Compact Disc
·
 
Book Review
Thomas Pitt prefers the grim routine of murder investigations to the riskier probing of Victorian governmental intrigues. Yet Anne Perry's Southampton Row again finds him displaced from his police command, this time to foil the political ambitions of a ruthless republican.

Charles Voisey, leader of a powerful secret society known as the Inner Circle, was defeated by Pitt when he tried (in The Whitechapel Conspiracy) to abolish the British monarchy. Only months later, though, he's back on top, running for a seat in Parliament. Under the auspices of the newly created Special Branch, Pitt is charged with learning whether Voisey has any "unguarded vulnerabilities." The odds against Pitt succeeding are high; Voisey may be "shallow, self-important [and] condescending," but he impresses voters as more charismatic and...



Cal Ripken, Jr.: Play Ball!
Cal Ripken Jr.
0141301848
March 1999
Paperback

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4This beginning chapter book about the Baltimore Orioles hero who broke the record for playing the most games in a row is sure to be a hit with young baseball fans, but its appeal will not be limited to them. Adapted from Ripkens autobiography, The Only Way I Know (Viking, 1997), the text is nicely balanced with portrayals of both slumps and streaks, anecdotes and statistics. The combination of first-person narration with full-color photographs and realistic paintings that depict both the drama of baseball and ordinary childhood moments will pull kids into the life and thoughts of this hardworking player. The books greatest strength is Ripkens unflappable persistence and philosophical approach to rough times, whether personal or professional. A one-page list of career highlights is included....
