‘A fresh look at the beautiful game’ - NME Welcome back to the inimitable work of illustrator David Squires. Most football fans can only dream of pulling on the shirt of their favourite team and running out in front of thousands of adoring fans. Pitch invaders aside, few of us get to experience that adrenalin rush. Of those who do make it as a professional footballer, even fewer realise the giddy heights of success. In the Illustrated History of Football: Hall of Fame, cartoonist David Squires returns to celebrate those who straddle the game like giants; those talented, determined souls who were juggling tennis balls in the back streets before they could talk. There’s more than one way to attain football immortality though, and Squires also turns his comic eye to the mavericks, the pioneers, the forgotten legends and the anti-heroes. From Pele to Meazza, Maradona to Socrates, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey through the good, the bad and the Hagi.

The theft of the Jules Rimet Trophy in 1966 is one of the most unusual stories in the history of football. The full story of what really happened has never before been told, and those parts that have been told have contained and perpetuated a number of errors. This volume sets out to put the record straight by telling the complete story. It is based on official FIFA and FA files, as well as information drawn from the archives of the German and Brazilian football authorities, police records, complementary newspaper reports, and most importantly, evidence gathered form those involved with the case itself. It presents a factual account not only of the parts that have become public knowledge, but also of the activities that went on away from the glare of publicity and which have never been told in detail before.

Harold Cleaver ist auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere als Fernsehjournalist. Über sein denkwürdiges Interview mit dem amerikanischen Präsidenten spricht man im ganzen Land, nicht nur in London. Man spricht aber auch über das gerade erschienene Buch seines Sohnes, ein kaum verschlüsselter Roman über seinen Vater: "Im Schatten des Allmächtigen". Und plötzlich ist ihm klar, dass er weg muss. Weg von der medialen Öffentlichkeit, weg von seiner langjährigen Lebensgefährtin und den gemeinsamen Kindern. Das Bedürfnis nach Stille ist übermächtig. Er bucht einen Flug nach Mailand und fährt in ein entlegenes Dorf in Südtirol, um dort eine Hütte "über der Lärmgrenze" zu finden, wo er für niemanden mehr erreichbar ist. Wochen später, eingeschneit in dieser abgelegenen Hütte, muss er feststellen, dass die Stille kein Garant für Ruhe ist und dass nichts so verstörend ist wie die Stimmen im eigenen Kopf.

Beautifully designed and carefully curated, a fascinating collection of the things that shaped the way we live and play in America What artifact best captures the spirit of American sports? The bat Babe Ruth used to hit his allegedly called shot, or the ball on which Pete Rose wrote, "I'm sorry I bet on baseball"? Could it be Lance Armstrong's red-white-and-blue bike, now tarnished by doping and hubris? Or perhaps its ancestor, the nineteenth-century safety bicycle that opened an avenue of previously unknown freedom to women? The jerseys of rivals Larry Bird and Magic Johnson? Or the handball that Abraham Lincoln threw against a wall as he waited for news of his presidential nomination? From nearly forgotten heroes like Tad Lucas (rodeo) and Tommy Kono (weightlifting) to celebrities like Amelia Earhart, Muhammad Ali, and Michael Phelps, Cait Murphy tells the stories of the people, events, and things that have forged the epic of American sports, in both its splendor and its squalor. Stories of heroism and triumph rub up against tales of discrimination and cheating. These objects tell much more than just stories about great games-they tell the story of the nation. Eye-opening and exuberant, A History of American Sports in 100 Objects shows how the games Americans play are woven into the gloriously infuriating fabric of America itself.

Purchased in 1925 for $500 by bookmaker and businessman Tim Mara, the New York Giants were New York City’s introduction to professional football. The National Football League was a mere five years old---and for the near-century since, the history of football, the city, and the Giants has been inextricably linked. This thorough and thoroughly entertaining illustrated chronicle of the New York Giants football team tells the full story of the seasons, players, coaches, teams, and moments that have made history decade after decade. From the early years as an upstart sport in a big city heading into financial chaos, to the team’s triumph in the 1930s (including 1934’s famous “Sneakers Game” against the Chicago Bears); its return to glory in the 1950s behind the talents of Frank Gifford, Sam Huff, and Roosevelt Brown; and its pair of championship seasons in 1986 and 1990---these are the New York Giants, moment by colorful moment, right up to their upset victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Crammed with player statistics and team records, and brilliantly illustrated with vintage and up-to-the-minute photographs, the book is a fitting celebration of a team whose name is synonymous with football in America.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

From its beginnings asa small, courthouse town in 1816 to it present-day status as Canada's "Steel City", Hamilton's history is rich and varied. McMaster University historian John Weaver traces the town's evolution from frontier outpost to booming port, traces its emergence as a railway and commercial centre in the 1850s and 1860s, follows its blossoming as a diversified manufacturing centre in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and tracks its economic development in the post-World War Two period. Throughout he is careful to chart the fluctuating struggle between business and labour to influence the city's economic and social growth. Complemented with more than 100 historical photographs, Hamilton: An Illustrated History is the first comprehensive history of this dynamic city, its peoples and institutions.
