Recent auction results indicate a growing interest among collectors in plastic toy cars made during the 1950's and 1960's in Britain, mainland Europe, the USA and Hong Kong. This book is the first to take a systematic approach to a neglected area of toy collecting, providing valuable background information on the companies that made these toys and enabling collectors to identify many previously unknown items. Among the many famous toy companies examined are Tri-ang and Brimtoy (Great Britain); Norev and Minialuxe (France); Gama and Siku (Germany); Ingap and Politoys (Italy); Rico and Paya (Spain). In addition, light is shed for the first time on the history of many smaller and more obscure brands of plastic toy cars. More than 250 photographs of rare and unusual plastic toy cars are included, together with an indication of the prices these items are currently fetching on the antique toy market.

Forza Minardi!

The Inside Story of the Little Team Which Took on the Giants of F1

After 20 years of glorious ‘failure’, the best-loved team in Formula One is consigned to the history books, and it deserves one of its own. Minardi had a successful time in Formula Two until the tiny Italian outfit was ready to hit the big time in 1985. It somehow survived in F1’s shark-infested waters as bigger teams (Lotus, Arrows, Tyrrell) were dragged under. They have a truly international fan-base and are the ‘second team’ of most F1 devotees. Minardi is held in such affection as everyone loves the plucky underdog – Minardi’s annual budget would have lasted one month at the other Italian team up the road. Yet, from its plant in Faenza near Bologna, Minardi has produced cars that qualify, sometimes score points and often lead the way in their technology. Gian Carlo Minardi also developed a reputation as a fabulous talent-spotter – Fisichella, Trulli, Webber and the youngest ever World Champion Alonso all started their F1 careers with Minardi. For the last five years, Minardi was owned by controversial Australian tycoon Paul Stoddart. Cast as David against the Goliath of F1’s governing body, Stoddart constantly hit the headlines as he tried to get a more equal share of the sport’s billions. Ultimately, he failed and Red Bull has now bought the team. Despite a petition of 15,000 names, the Minardi name has vanished from the F1 grid and true motorheads miss it. This is the one and only inside account, with exclusive, comprehensive interviews with bosses, drivers and engineers. 140 unique photos complete this revalationary tale.

Die erschütternde Geschichte des 22-jährigen Irakers Zaid, der vom Studenten zum Widerstandskämpfer gegen die US-Streitkräfte wurde Jürgen Todenhöfer traf Menschen im Irak, über die wir kaum etwas wissen: Menschen wie den jungen Zaid, der in seinem Leben vor allem Not und Krieg kennengelernt hat. In bewegenden Worten erzählt er seine Geschichte, wie er und seine Mitstreiter sowohl gegen die alliierten Besatzungstruppen als auch gegen den Terror von Al Qaida im eigenen Land kämpfen. Im Krieg hat er fast alles verloren. Seine Brüder wurden von GI’s erschossen. Dann schloss sich der junge Student einer Widerstandsgruppe an und hat selbst Menschen getötet. Jürgen Todenhöfer zeichnet ein lebendiges, authentisches Bild des Irak und der islamischen Welt wie wir es aus der Berichterstattung nicht kennen.
