Constance Street: Part 1 of 3: The true story of one family and one street in London’s East End

Constance Street can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.

This is PART 1 of 3.

You can read Part 1 two weeks ahead of release of the full-length eBook and paperback.

One forgotten street, 12 unforgettable women.

Through the story of one street - Constance Street - we hear the true life tales of a tight-knit group of working class women in the East End of London set against a backdrop of war, hardship and struggle.

It's a story of matriarchy and deep family ties, of a generation that was scattered away from the street during the blitz bombings, but which maintained the ties of that street for decades afterwards.

Set in an area of East London called Silvertown, a once thriving docking community that at the turn of the 20th century was the industrial heartland of the south of England; the story focuses on the lives of 12 incredible women and their struggle to survive amidst the chaos of the war years.

We have Nellie Greenwood, the author's great grandmother who runs a laundry in Silvertown which becomes the focal point of the community. In 1917 a munitions factory in Silvertown explodes flattening much of the surrounding area and causing extensive damage to Constance Street - Nellie's daughter is blown from her crib but miraculously survives.

Deciding to open the laundry as a field hospital for the injured, Nellie and the women on the street come together to tend the wounded, the sick and the emotionally shattered as they cope with the aftermath of not just one but two world wars.

Through the Great War, the roaring Twenties, the Depression and then the unimaginable - the outbreak of a second world war - Nellie and the street survive with love, laughter and friendships that bind the community together. But just as this incredible group of women live through the worst, the unthinkable happens. On 7 September 1940, Constance Street is no more.

Following in the footsteps of Farewell to the East End by Jennifer Worth and The Sugar Girls, Constance Street is a life-affirming, heart-warming read that reminds us of a time when people pulled together.

Bought and Sold (Part 1 of 3)

A heart-stopping story of lies, brutality and fear. British girl Megan Stephens tells the true story of how an idyllic Mediterranean holiday turned into an unimaginable nightmare when she was tricked into becoming a victim of human trafficking and held captive for six years by deception, threats and violence.

While on holiday with her mother at a popular Mediterranean coastal resort, Megan fell in love. Just 14 years old, naive and vulnerable, she had no reason to suspect that the man who said he loved her would commit the ultimate betrayal of her trust.

When her mother returned to England, Megan stayed with Jak, who said he would find her a job as a waitress and promised they would be together forever. But when Megan travelled to the city with Jak, his attitude quickly changed and instead of finding her work as a waitress, he allowed her to be raped and then sold her to a human trafficker.

Abandoned by Jak but still unable to accept that everything he'd told her had been a lie, Megan was coerced by threats and violence into working as a prostitute in private homes and brothels. Then the trafficker threatened her mother's life and it was Megan's turn to lie: sending her mother the staged photographs that had been taken of her apparently working as a waitress in a cafe, she told her she was happy.

Too frightened and bewildered to trust or reach out to anyone, Megan remained locked in a world of brutality and abuse for six years. In the end, there only seemed to be one way out.

Megan's powerful story reveals the devastating realities of human trafficking and the fear that imprisons its victims more effectively than any cage could ever do.

At the Coalface: Part 1 of 3: The memoir of a pit nurse

A heart-warming story of a woman who devoted her life to helping others. This is the memoir of Joan, who started nursing in the 1940s and whose experiences took her into the Yorkshire mining pits and through the tumult of the 1984-85 miners' strike.

Joan Hart always knew what she wanted to do with her life. Born in South Yorkshire in 1932, she started her nursing training when she was 16, the youngest age girls could do so at the time. She continued working after she married and her work took her to London and Doncaster, caring for children and miners.

When she took a job as a pit nurse in Doncaster in 1974, she found that in order to be accepted by the men under her care, she would have to become one of them. Most of the time rejecting a traditional nurse's uniform and donning a baggy miner's suit, pit boots, a hardhat and a headlamp, Joan resolved always to go down to injured miners and bring them out of the pit herself.

Over 15 years Joan grew to know the miners not only as a nurse, but as a confidante and friend. She tended to injured miners underground, rescued men trapped in the pits, and provided support for them and their families during the bitter miners' strike which stretched from March 1984 to 1985.

Moving and uplifting, this is a story of one woman's life, marriage and work; it is guaranteed to make readers laugh, cry, and smile.

Blood Sisters: Part 1 of 3: Can a pledge made for life endure beyond death?

It's 1983 and best friends Vicky and Lucy swear that they will always be there for each other, that they'll never let anyone come between them. But fast forward 4 years and life on the Canterbury Estate has gotten very messy.

Lucy has fallen for local policeman's son, Jimmy. And Vicky is madly in love with Paddy, the charming but ruthless local bad boy. The boys are bitter enemies and determined to keep the two girls apart. But then Vicky is accused of murder, and even her drug-dealer boyfriend wants her mouth shut, permanently. Maybe Lucy is the only one who can save her...

Love, murder, revenge. Who can you really trust when there's blood on your hands?

In the Skin of a Jihadist: Free Sampler: Inside Islamic State’s Recruitment Networks

FREE SAMPLER FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

When Anna Erelle, a young journalist, goes undercover online to discover how today's most ruthless terrorists use social media to recruit disaffected young women like the girls from Bethnal Green, her investigation spins into a harrowing nightmare.

In this extract, Erelle creates 'Melodie' - a twenty-year-old convert to Islam on Facebook - who is immediately Skyped by a man named Bilel, in Syria. Bilel is the French right-hand man of the most dangerous militant in the world, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Caliph of Islamic State. He offers Melodie a way to fill the boredom in her young life: he cares about her, offers beautiful things, spiritual purpose and, in less an idyllic life. Bilel's seduction is honey-tongued and forceful - and all Melodie must do is join him and ISIS in their Syrian jihad. Every day he gives more detail, telling her how he drives a jeep filled with guns and bottles of the chocolate milk he loves for hundreds of miles on murderous missions of execution. Every night he lures, seduces and manipulates this vulnerable young woman.

A riveting page-turner In the Skin of a Jihadist is a shocking inquiry into how technology is spreading radicalism, the lure of ISIS propaganda, and the factors that motivate young people - including many British teenagers - to join extremist wars in Syria and elsewhere.

The Forgotten Soldier (Part 1 of 3): He wasn’t a soldier, he was just a boy

Bestselling author Charlie Connelly returns with a First World War memoir of his great uncle, Edward Connelly, who was an ordinary boy sent to fight in a war the likes of which the world had never seen.

But this is not just his story; it is the story of all the young forgotten soldiers who fought and bravely died for their country

The Forgotten Soldier tells the story of Private Edward Connelly, aged 19, killed in the First World War a week before the Armistice and immediately forgotten, even, it seems, by his own family.

Edward died on exactly the same day, and as part of the same military offensive, as Wilfred Owen. They died only a few miles apart and yet there cannot be a bigger contrast between their legacies. Edward had been born into poverty in west London on the eve of the twentieth century, had a job washing railway carriages, was conscripted into the army at the age of eighteen and sent to the Western Front from where he would never return.

He lies buried miles from home in a small military cemetery on the outskirts of an obscure town close to the French border in western Belgium. No-one has ever visited him.

Like thousands of other young boys, Edward's life and death were forgotten.

By delving into and uncovering letters, poems and war diaries to reconstruct his great uncle's brief life and needless death; Charlie fills in the blanks of Edward's life with the experiences of similar young men giving a voice to the voiceless. Edward Connelly's tragic story comes to represent all the young men who went off to the Great War and never came home.

This is a book about the unsung heroes, the ordinary men who did their duty with utmost courage, and who deserve to be remembered.

17-year-old Sarah Hill leaves behind her home in Wales and enrols at Hackney General Hospital, where she is due to start her training.

Looking up at the rows and rows of little windows, there was no way Sarah could have guessed just what she was getting herself into...

More than just a hospital, Hackney General was part of the community, just as much as the Adam & Eve pub the staff frequent. A place where the poorly children of Hackney were nursed to health, a place where young nurses would discover just want they wanted from life, fall in love with shy photographers and grow into women. But it's not all smooth sailing in Hackney: for every baby that goes home to its loving family another is abandoned, unloved, or never gets to go home at all.

Funny, warm and deeply moving, Sarah Beeson's poignant memoir captures both the heartache and happiness of hospital life and 1970s London through the eyes of a gentle but determined young nurse.

BUS STOP READS ARE SHORT QUICK READS

17 DEADLY WOMEN THROUGH THE AGES

TRUE CRIME: WOMEN SERIAL KILLERS

Our society can barely account for evil in males, let alone imagine it in females. The female nests, creates, and nurtures doesn't she or is it that we just want to believe in the intrinsic non-threatening nature of women?

Yet, history is full of instrumentally violent women: women who have fought wars and battles throughout the world, with no less ferociousness than men, women such as Dynamis of Bosphorous, who starved her husband to death and took control of his kingdom, or Artemisia, the queen of Halicarnassus in the 5th century, who conducted a brilliant but brutal military campaign against the Greeks. Mary Tudor, Queen Mary 1 of England, in 1553 became known as "Bloody Mary," for her extreme cruelty and willingness to execute people.

In this short book meet 17 less known but equally murderous cold blooded women. After reading it you may find your perception of the gentler sex changed irrevocably. Enjoy.

8th Brigade Original: The World War of Willy Thompson (Their World War Book 2)

This is the story of a strong and quietly determined Australian Digger from World War I.

When the first official Australian casualty lists of the War were released at the beginning of May 1915, William 'Willy' Thompson, from Newcastle, New South Wales, decided to enlist. He was in search of adventure. Willy was allocated to the 30th Battalion of a newly formed brigade in the Australian Imperial Force; he was an 8th Brigade Original.

After training in Egypt, Willy's Brigade fought in the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916, the first major engagement for Australians on the Western Front. Two years later, he was still with the 8th Brigade at the magnificent feat by the 1st Australian Corps at Amiens; Germany's 'Black Day' and the beginning of the end of the War. Willy served as a Driver for his entire time on the Western Front - two years and four months.

Willy got the adventure he sought, and more. He survived the heat and flies of Egypt; German snipers, artillery bombardments, gas attacks and raids; and the mud of Flanders and the Somme. From the day of his enlistment until the end of fighting, Willy's time away from the 8th Brigade amounted to just two weeks.

His is a remarkable tale of endurance.

DOING MY DUTY: Corporal Elmer Dewey - One National Guard Doughboy's Experiences During The Pancho Villa Punitive Campaign And World War I

This is the story in words and photographs of Elmer Dewey who in 1916 at the age of seventeen walked over to the Masten Avenue Armory in Buffalo, New York, lied about his age, and enlisted in the New York National Guard. He soon found himself caught up in two of the most momentous events of the early twentieth century - the Pancho Villa Punitive Campaign and World War I. The book focuses extensively on Dewey's training and ultimate service as an artilleryman with one of the New York Guard's top artillery units - Battery B, 106th Field Artillery Regiment. It recounts in detail Dewey's and the battery's actions and contributions during their service on the Mexican border and shortly thereafter in France during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive - the bloodiest battle in American history and the battle that ended World War I. Using hundreds of sources including family and personal recollections, letters, National Guard and Army records, unit histories, other government records, newspapers, magazines, books, and site visits, the author weaves the story telling of the adventures, the hardships, the sacrifices, and the terror as Dewey and the other Doughboys did their duty.

The Autobiography of Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh

BHAI SAHIB RANDHIR SINGH (1878-1961) was an outstanding freedom-fighter and a great saint and theologian who has made a lasting contribution to the religious and cultural revival in Punjab, and was one of the first few Punjabi revolutionaries who staked their life and career to bring about political awakening and win freedom for their country. Son of a High Court Judge and educated in Govt. College and Mission College, Lahore, Bhai Randhir Singh ushered a moral and spiritual revival which set into motion what later on came to be known as Gurdwara Reform Movement. In the Rakabganj Affair (1913) it was his stern challenge to the British Government and stirring call to the people to organize resistance, which prevented the further desecration of the historic shrine.

In 1914, he was the only non-emigrant Sikh leader who completely identified himself with the cause of the Ghadar Party and suffered imprisonment for seventeen long years. He is known to historians of this period as "Hero of the First supplementary Lahore Conspiracy Case''. He is the only Sikh Leader who, in the last hundred years or more, has been given 'Hukamnamas' and Robes of Honour by the (then) four Takhats of the Panth, in solemn recognition of his sacrifices and impact on his times. His deep and original expositions of various aspects of Sikhism (more than 30 books) are a lasting contribution to Sikh theology, philosophy and mysticism. He distinguished himself in Punjabi prose and poetry by an erudite and powerful grand style of his own.

This autobiography, originally compiled from his letters from the various prisons and published in Punjabi, has been translated by Dr. Trilochan Singh, who was associated with Bhai Sahib during last 20 years of his life. To the translation Dr. Trilochan Singh has added a lengthy introductory thesis, based on through research work, throwing light on Bhai Sahib's early life and giving fairly detailed account of Bhai Randhir Singh's role in Rakabganj Affair and the Ghadar Party Revolution. Some of the facts revealed by him are a significant contribution to the history of this period. They bring to light the achievement and results of the Ghadar Revolution, and its impact on subsequent phases of Freedom Movement.

This is the first electronic publication of this nature by Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Trust UK (Registered Charity No: 1144954). With the blessings of the Almighty and support of the Sangat, we can hopefully publish more of Bhai Sahib's work in this way. Any proceeds and donations will go towards making more work of this nature available and for other charitable causes.

“I Will Only React to Constructive Suggestions": Targeted Individuals

This short ebook describes the most important statement that Targeted Individuals can use. "I will only react to constructive suggestions" - is a statement for self-hypnosis. It is most effective when repeated at bedtime, but can be used anytime an individual feels fear. Most of what the CIA criminals are doing with their illegal and horrific Targeted Individuals program, involves the use of subliminal suggestions. Targeted Individuals can regain their power by using this self-hypnosis statement many times each day, until it becomes part of their core beliefs. It will effectively block negative external influences.

About 20% of the population is immune to personality modification. The reasons for this are not fully understood, but some people appear to have a natural blocking mechanism in their core personality that prevents tampering from the outside. The average person can adopt this blocking capability by using a self-hypnosis procedure. Therefore, a person's best defense against subliminal messaging programs is a statement similar to; "I will only react to constructive suggestions." It can be repeated at bedtime, or during meditative periods during the day. It is extremely effective. Although it cannot stop microwave attacks, it can prevent the personality from becoming vulnerable to alteration. This self-hypnosis statement also has other beneficial side effects.

Dr Doug Rokke is a former government scientist that became a whistleblower. (BiggerThanSnowden.com). He worked on some of the CIA's illegal programs and became familiar with the procedures and equipment that were used on Targeted Individuals and their family members. Dr Rokke has identified the frequencies around 450 MHz as being used for training the brain to respond to specific subliminal messages.

It can take several weeks to several months for the process, but the process can be effectively blocked by using a self-hypnosis statement. Whenever you are feeling fear, is a good time to repeat the statement. Eventually, your subconscious will hold it as a permanent belief, giving you immunity. Another alternative is to modify the statement until it feels right for you, such as, "I will only react to constructive suggestions, for all eternity." In some people, this can offer immediate long-term benefits. Readers are suggested to modify the statement to a wording that you feel will give you permanent benefits. Trust your intuition.

The Microwave Torture of Ed Snowden & Julian Assange: Targeted Individuals

Rev1E- Everything we find horrific about the Nazis, has become the Deep State. The orders come from the Rockefellers & Rothschilds to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), then to the Shadow Government and CIA. But don't take my word for it - read the books and work of Dr Peter Dale Scott, Aaron Russo, Attorney Michael Springmann, Dr Steven Greer, Dr Judy Wood, Dr Morgan Reynolds, Dr David Griffin, Dr Barrie Trower, Dr John Hall, Dr Katherine Horton, Dr Ewen Cameron, Paul Hellyer, Ted Gunderson, and many others. This author has been investigating satellite weapons and the global microwave torture of thousands of people, since January 2016. As a proud Government Whistleblower, I urge others to come forward., as I would gladly do it again. This ebook contains some of my latest research into Targeted Individuals. I have referenced a number of credible sources that have videos on youtube including, Dr Barrie Trower, a retired British intelligence agent and microwave expert; Dr John Hall, M.D. In San Antonio; and Dr Katherine Horton, an Oxford scientist. Based on this research, I can state with complete confidence that Ed Snowden and Julian Assange are microwave targets of this illegal program. I urge them to come forward in support of Targeted Individuals, just like William Binney and Kirk Weibe have done. This is happening to thousands of people all over the world. Their family members are targets of the subliminal messaging program, which is intended to isolate them emotionally and psychologically. These microwave beams are painful and cause permanent damage. It is nothing less than torture, and it is banned under international treaties. It is a serious violation of Constitutional rights, it is defined as a war crime by international treaties, and when conducted against White House cabinets members and top government officials, it is nothing less than TREASON. See my related ebook, "34 Patents on Subliminal Mind Control."

I strongly encourage Ed Snowden and Julian Assange to come forward with their experience as Targeted Individuals and microwave torture.

These satellite frequencies are also being used in a subliminal messaging program against Targeted Individuals and their family members, in an attempt to control their behavior. The CIA is using these same frequencies and subliminal messaging to alter the behavior of top government officials, such as Senators, Congressmen, and even the President and his cabinet. This is TREASON. The microwave and RF technology to alter behavior has been well-documented. I have previously documented the frequencies as follows: Tracking and geolocation: approx. 3600 MHz to 3750 Mhz, and the carrier frequency for the subliminal messaging and harm signals has been measured at 3921 MHz - 3934 MHz. The subliminal messaging is repeated thousands of times each night on the target, until the negative messages "stick." These messages can be simple - "Your husband is crazy," or "You hate him. Avoid him." Recall that CIA Doctor Ewen Cameron bragged about using these subliminal techniques to turn an ordinary person into a vicious serial killer - the real Manchurian Candidate, as part of the CIA's MK-Ultra program. Mike Pompeo, current CIA Director is fully aware of these programs. This is obvious from the reorganization of the CIA's field agents, into remote monitoring of targets, which were exposed with the Vault 7 wikileaks files.

We have learned that the AIr Force Space Command in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is operating the satellites that Target Individuals. Peterson Air Force Base and Schriever Air Force Base comprise the largest satellite operations center in the world, with 175 satellites. See "Treason at the Air Force Space Command."

The best defense is a repeated statement, "I will only react to constructive suggestions."

Cautionary tales for the modern investor: The seven deadly sins of multi-asset investing

Investing is an activity that's rife with opportunity to fall into bad habits, be led astray or make decisions for the wrong reasons. Being aware of the behavioural traps and temptations that lie in wait for the unwary investor is the first step to avoiding them.

The Seven Deadly Sins were formulated in early Christian teachings to make followers mindful of man's natural vices - lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride.

On the following pages, The Seven Deadly Sins are adapted to the world of multi-asset investment, revealing the all-too-common investor tendencies that the authors look to avoid in order to achieve reliable long-term performance.

Ten golden rules of equity investing

A distillation of insights from the world of investing into ten succinct rules - a light-hearted eBook with some serious lessons. A must-read for all investors.

Still Walking

When Bill Moss decided in 1984 to leave a prestigious job and take a salary cut to join the boutique investment firm that later became Macquarie Bank, he faced the challenge of starting a real estate investment business from a small desk in an open-plan office, with just one fulltime employee working for him. In its first year of operations, the business Moss had seemingly crazily agreed to take on made a profit of just $40,000.

Twenty-two years later, when he retired as the legendary head of Macquarie Bank's real estate and banking division and one of Australia's highest paid executives, Bill Moss AM had built a global business in real estate finance, development and funds management that stretched across five continents from Africa to Asia, Europe, Australia and North America, and created thousands of jobs.

Yet up until a few years before deciding to retire from the 'Millionaire Factory', Moss fought every step of the way to conceal a grim personal secret from work colleagues, business associates and friends--and most of all from himself. When he was 27, Moss was told by doctors he had a degenerative and incurable muscle wasting disease, a form of muscular dystrophy called FSHD, which the ambitious, driven young businessman was assured would leave him crippled and in a wheelchair by the age of 50.

These memoirs are the inspirational, moving, blunt and at times very funny account of how a senior and seemingly all-powerful Macquarie banker struggled for years through physical discomfort, pain and the many barriers thrown in the path of people with physical disabilities, not just to rise to the international heights of a notoriously difficult profession but also gradually to face and come courageously to terms with his disability.

A multi-millionaire who began life in a fibro house in a working class suburb of Sydney, Moss is today a committed philanthropist, passionate campaigner for disability rights, and the founder of a global medical and scientific research foundation bringing hope to FSHD and other dystrophy sufferers around the world.

Rho Magna, the Laotian War Dragon (Short Story)

Combat fighter pilot Mark Berent writes of a dragon-shaped karst mountain in Laos along the Ho Chi Minh Trail that bristles with physical and psychological danger.

Bad Apples and Beyond

The true story of a young man aiming for a life in professional sport struck down by serious illness and what followed as his life unfolded through a debilitating progressive illness and the unlikely success of a kidney transplant. At some points the story is upsetting, at other times humorous, but always surprising and ultimately an uplifting tale spanning more than forty years. Following a brief eight page article published locally in a magazine, the author was persuaded by the response it received from other patients, carers, family and friends to write this full story which runs to over 52,000 words and covers a truly remarkable story of life and hope.

Blending her own experiences with an intimate grasp of spirituality, Sue Monk Kidd relates the passionate and moving tale of her spiritual crisis, when life seemed to have lost meaning and her longing for a hasty escape from the pain yielded to a discipline of "active waiting."

Cross Cultural Doctoring. On and Off the Beaten Path.

In Cross Cultural Doctoring you will read about my career as a successful obstetrician and gynecologist in academic medicine at a major university.

You will read why I decided at age 55 to leave my position, jump into the unknown and get off the beaten path. I will relate how my wife Anne and I accomplished this and how I kept working for various lengths of time in a number of different cultural settings around the world and how we travel extensively between assignments.

The book is written as a series of loosely connected anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical. Some are funny and some are not so funny. When appropriate I have added some reflections about our experiences.

I try to convey to the reader the excitement we have felt about our adventure. I hope that the book will inspire readers, medical and non-medical, to consider at some point of their careers to take the step to get off the beaten path. Anne and I certainly have never regretted our choices and have never looked back. Reading this book may also inspire readers to write their own story.

I hope that you will enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

I am not interested in making money from this book. I wanted to make the book available for free, but Amazon does not allow that. Thus the book is priced at the minimum of 99 cents. May I suggest that the reader make a charitable contribution to Hospital San Carlos in Chiapas, Mexico, in lieu of the usually accepted fee for a book of this nature. Their website is given on the first page of the book.

Atiku - The Story Of Atiku Abubakar

As Vice President Atiku Abubakar's media adviser from June 2003 to April 2005, I had the tedious task of going through a steady flow of unsolicited proposals for a biography on him.

Some of these proposals, mostly from people who hardly knew him, were written by adoring fans or worshipful political supporters who genuinely wanted to market his inspiring life story and leadership qualities to the literate public. Others were motivated chiefly, I suspect, by pecuniary gains or the quest for momentary literary fame. The proposals also differed in terms of approach and the medium the would-be authors hoped to use to realize their objectives.Afilm maker in Northern Nigeria wanted to put Atiku's life on video.ASouthwestern author of a proposal wanted to do a television documentary on the Atiku story. A South- South author who had written on many public office holders in Nigeria, wanted to be commissioned to write "the definitive Atiku biography". Someone wrote from Abuja for permission to do a pictorial biography of the Vice President.

I read through these proposals and recommended them, in typical Nigerian bureaucratese, for "Mr. Vice President's kind consideration and further directive". I was directed to politely decline some requests and to open discussion with the authors of other proposals that we considered serious and promising. I did discuss with a few of the authors and reported back. The Vice President was often turned off by the unreasonably huge budget for executing the projects which was expected to be borne entirely by him. One day, he sent a proposal back to me with a note.

"Why don't you do an in-house work?" he scribbled at the bottom of my covering memorandum.

He advised me to liaise with my colleague, Umar Ardo, whose father had adopted him as a son in Kojoli, Adamawa State, to work jointly on his biography. Ardo, a bright historian who had temporarily left a teaching job at the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna to serve as a vice presidential aide on political strategy, had been working independently on the Atiku story but had lost interest and gone into other pursuits. For now he was not interested in dusting up the project, he told me matter-of-factly. It was now my cup of tea - so to speak.

What you are about to read is not a hagiography. I have tried to give a balance and fair portrait of a remarkable life. Although the story of an only child who grew up without a father, learned to take care of himself and to fight his own battles from an early age are not uncommon in Nigeria, many people are likely to be inspired by the subject's rugged determination to overcome the difficulties of being born poor and lonely as well as by his perseverance and humane disposition. It is the tale of a man who has no brother or sister. It is the tale of a humble village boy who, with a combination of handwork and incredible luck, made good both in business and politics.

I have tried as much as possible to track the major events in his life and to retell them in the context of Nigerian and global history. After all, the history of a nation is the sum total of the lives of its notable men and women and the events which shape our world and impinge on our little corners of it are triggered off by the actions of individuals and groups. Lastly, I would like to say that I have tried in this book to simply tell a story without embellishment or over-dramatization. I believe the facts should speak for themselves.

The Story of Prophet Adam In Islam

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and (Prophet) on Earth, in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also refer to his wife, Hawa (Eve), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Prophet Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an states that all the Prophets preached the same faith of Islam (Submission to One God).

The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when Allah (God) informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but he told them that he knew what they did not. He created Adam from clay and breathed life into him. Hadith add that he was named Adam after the clay he was made out of, or the skin (adim) of the earth. Returning to the Qur'an, when God asked all the angels to prostrate before Adam, they all obeyed, except Iblis (Lucifer). He said, "I am made from fire, when Adam is from clay. I am better than him. I am not going to prostrate before him."

Sunni hadith say that while Adam was sleeping, God took a rib from him and from it he created Eve (Hawa); however, while the creation of Adam and Eve is referred to in the Qur'an, the exact method of creation is not specified. The Qur'an then says that God commanded that Adam and Eve not eat from one tree in the garden of Eden, but Iblis (Lucifer) was able to convince them to taste it. They then began to cover themselves because they now knew that they were naked. For this, God banished Adam and Eve to earth; non-canonical Sunni hadith say that fruits were turned to thorns and pregnancy became dangerous. Non-canonical Sunni hadith also say that Adam and Eve were cast down far apart, so that they had to search for each other and eventually met each other at Mount Arafat.

In Islamic theology, it is not believed that Adam's sin is carried by all of his children. Hadith say that once Prophet Adam was on earth, God taught him how to plant seeds and bake bread. This was to become the way of all of Adam's children, Prophet Adam proceeded to live for about 1000 years.

Sea Beast (True Tales of the Supernatural Kind Book 3)

The forecast was gloomy, a stormy Sunday, the kind you should stay in bed for, read a book, cuddle and so on. The seas were riotous, and so I moderately objected to what seemed like a somewhat risky undertaking. But the intrepid skipper reckoned we had a stellar morning of shark breaching ahead of us. I took his word. We left for the open ocean at dusk, heading towards Shark Alley. Six humans on a tiny boat out to find the impressive Great White Shark. Darkness began to evaporate, but the sun was nowhere to be seen. Despite dense clouds, the increasing lightness brought on by daybreak revealed just how rough the ocean really was. Colossal waves assembled and then subsided before they could break. The sea took deep raging breaths followed by violent exhales. Halfway to Shark Alley, we threw out the decoy, hoping to entice the esteemed predator with the promise of fresh meat, all of us wishing we could get the damn shots and go back to shore. Nothing. Not even the tremendous ocean beings were up for the weather, either that or they knew it was a hoax. The skipper reckoned we should go in deeper to where the sea was even more belligerent. So we did...

Targeted Individuals: How to Fight Back

Rev. 2C - This short ebook describes some methods to fight back against the criminals of the Deep State. It does not involve violence of any kind, but has been proven to be very effective. The yard signs shown on the cover are one method, which informs FBI agents. The CIA runs the microwave torture program, and the FBI is in charge of the gangstalking. If we can break down the Deep State, then the microwaves will stop. Wake people up to the serious government corruption, and the microwaves will stop. Just making people aware of the government corruption, can be "domino effect" that will break down the Deep State.

One of the simplest ways to fight back is to inform FBI agents about 9-11, via DrJudyWood.com. There is enough information on the website, so that they can be certain that the CIA and Mossad were involved in the planning and murder of 3000 people. By doing this, you are turning their own agents against the agency. That's a powerful weapon.

This simple yard sign can be a very effective tool. Place it along the public driveways that lead to the parking areas for FBI personnel at FBI buildings. Every major city has at least one FBI office. According to one whistleblower, about 50% of the FBI agents still have integrity and will respond to the obvious corruption. Other places to put up yard signs with DrJudyWood.com, along public streets: Police Stations, Fire Departments, Government Contractors such as GE, Boeing, LockheedMartin, General Dynamics, Raytheon, Honeywell, Stratfor, Pratt & Whitney, SpaceX, and NASA facilities. These are smart people that will realize our government is lieing. And by doing this, you are recruiting whistleblowers that can do the most harm to the Deep State, without violence.

To fight back, it must be done without violence. If you are considering violence as an option, then this ebook will not help you. The CIA criminals want you to commit an act of violence. This helps to drive their propaganda for a greater police state. The ends never justify the means.

The FBI can be the best defense against the Deep State. There are many agents in the FBI that have integrity and an excellent sense of justice, even when their crooked bosses order it otherwise.

For additional details on the Deep State and the Shadow Government, I refer readers to the recent information of CIA Whistleblower, Kevin Shipp. Mr Shipp has provided details on many of the horrific activities of the CIA and how they control all of the other intelligence services. They also control many members of Congress by paying large bribes to them, when they vote the way that the CIA instructs them. Mr Shipp stated that the Big 5 intelligence contractors are:

1. Leidos Holdings

2. CSRA

3. CACI

4. SAIC

5. Booz Allen Hamilton

If you live close to one of these contractors, please put up some signs about DrJudyWood, or something similar.

The Appendix contains a link to Dr Daniel Lebowitz's presentation to the Senate Committee Hearing on Civil Rights abuses, regarding Targeted Individuals.

By publicly sharing his story, Joseph hopes to raise awareness about youth mental health, highlighting key issues that almost every teenager goes through and encouraging them to openly talk to mental health professionals, because at times, an outsider can extend invaluable insight into their lives.

The Problem of Knowledge in Financial Markets

One of the undoubted highlights of the book 'Professional Investor Rules' is the chapter by Paul Jourdan, AAA-rated fund manager and CEO of Amati Global Investors. A highly pellucid and thought-provoking piece, it takes an unflinching look at what it means to be a successful investor engaged in the "living and strangely intelligent organism" of today's financial markets - the importance of self-knowledge, the vital role of history and stories, and the limits of certainty that every investor must come to terms with.

This eBook exclusively reproduces the chapter as a standalone piece. It remains a striking and provocative piece of essential reading for every investor.

My Life

The story of MY LIFE is told in greater detail in the biography titled Atiku: The Story of Atiku Abubakar by Adinoyi Ojo Onukaba (Africana Legacy Press, Abuja, 2006). MY LIFE is based largely on a series of interviews I granted the biographer.

The interviews covered the major events and milestones in my life and they have been distilled here and woven into a personal narrative of struggles and triumph with a hint about the vast unconquered territory that still lies ahead.

I want readers to take note of two points. One, my modest achievements in life have not come to me on a platter of gold. I have had to struggle against uncommon odds to get to where I am today. Success in life requires hard work and sacrifice. Two, personal achievements in life are meaningless in a country where the vast majority of our people still struggle daily to meet their basic needs.

There is, therefore, an urgent need to create a Nigeria of shared exertion and prosperity, a Nigeria where the majority of our people are fulfilled, happy and hopeful about the future.

I hope our young people will find the story of My Life inspiring. It is not the circumstances of our birth that truly count, it is what we make of life itself.

As for me, I will continue to devote the rest of my life to making Nigeria a strong, united, democratic and prosperous country.

What Is Islam Faith?

Among the blessings and favors that God has bestowed upon humanity is that He endowed them with an innate ability to recognize and acknowledge His existence. He placed this awareness deep in their hearts as a natural disposition that has not changed since human beings were first created. Furthermore, He reinforced this natural disposition with the signs that he placed in creation that testify to His existence.

However, since it is not possible for human beings to have a detailed knowledge of God except through revelation from Himself, God sent His Messengers to teach the people about their Creator Who they must worship. These Messengers also brought with them the details of how to worship God, because such details cannot be known except by way of revelation. These two fundamentals were the most important things that the Messengers of all the divine revelations brought with them from God.

The ultimate goal of every Divine Message has always been the same: to guide the people to God, to make them aware of Him, and to have them worship Him alone. Each Divine Message came to strengthen this meaning, and the following words were repeated on the tongues of all the Messengers: "Worship God, you have no god other than Him." This message was conveyed to humanity by prophets and messengers which God sent to every nation. All of these messengers came with this same message, the message of Islam.

How to Identify Microwave Satellites: Targeted Individuals

Rev-1D. This author has been investigating satellite weapons and the global microwave torture of thousands of people, since January 2016. This ebook contains some of my latest research into Targeted Individuals, and is intended to show that these hostile satellite weapons can be located and attacked. I have not covered all of the technical details, but it is clearly possible to assemble a microwave cannon, along the basic ideas provided here. The CIA is operating a program against its own civilians and key government officials that is nothing less than Treason. This ebook describes some of the technical information that can be used to identify and track the microwave satellites that are being used. These satellites were likely designed under the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which is a top secret department within the intelligence agencies. They were launched under President Reagan's Star Wars program. Also, a method for building an inexpensive microwave cannon is described, which might be used to disable some of these satellites. It is hoped that foreign governments around the world can use this information to protect their citizens. The ebook does not answer all of the technical issues, but it is intended as a starting point.

The CIA and FBI are "behind most, if not all terrorism." - Ted Gunderson, former FBI Chief

The Emily Updates (Vol. 1): One Year in the Life of the Girl Who Lived (The Emily Updates (Vols. 1-5))

Seventeen years ago, authors Tom and Vonne Barnett were suddenly confronted with every parent's worst medical "bolt from the blue": their only child, 30-month-old Emily, was diagnosed with an advanced - meaning metastasized - pediatric cancer. At the time, the thirty-something couple was living in northern Virginia.

What followed was the defining crisis of their now 25-year union: an intense 20-month battle to keep their first-born alive. About six months into the struggle, Tom started writing a weekly update on Emily's progress (or lack thereof) for interested parties. Vonne contributed to this blog-like diary, and it was sent out by email, fax and regular mail to several hundred relatives and friends who spontaneously organized themselves into their family's extended support network. Over time, the couple came to view the updates as something more important: a real-time memoir that would someday prove crucial to Emily's understanding of how she became whom Tom and Vonne hoped she would become.

The journey from blog diary to this eBook serial is worth recounting. The original diary ran about 400,000 words, or somewhere in the range of an 800-page book. In the late 1990s, Tom edited the text down to approximately 200,000 words and posted the 45 updates online at a website he created specifically for that purpose. Having received a lot of positive feedback from readers, they sought publication as a regular book, but then fate intervened in the form of a new job for Tom in Rhode Island and the project was - pun intended - shelved.

But the recent meteoric rise of eBooks has convinced Tom and Vonne that now is the time to give publication another try (Vonne, for example, is a Kindle fanatic!). After all, the Emily Updates basically constituted a blog before there were blogs, so eBooks struck the authors as an entirely appropriate venue for the material, especially since they're interested in making it easily available and they know - from first-hand experience - how parents and relatives of patients experiencing medical crises typically turn to the Internet to locate sources of information, comfort and inspiration in their time of need.

What you now have the privilege to read in this series of eBooks are the original weekly updates as Tom wrote them - with Vonne's continuous inputs - across all of 1995 and into early 1996, a period encompassing the last 14 months of Emily's treatment protocol. Those 45 updates constitute Chapters 3 through 9 in the series: Chapter 3, which concludes with the birth of their second child, in included in this volume; Chapters 4 and 5, which cover the difficult summer of 1995, make up Volume II; Chapters 6 and 7, which chronicle the family's final push on the chemotherapy, fill out Volume III; and Chapters 8 and 9, which encompass the post-treatment diagnostics - and Make-a-Wish trip to Disney World, constitute Volume IV.

The first two chapters presented in this Volume I are actually recreations of the events surrounding the initial diagnoses (Chapter 1) and the beginning of in-hospital treatment (Chapter 2) in July of 1994. Tom put these diary-like remembrances together in June of 1995 to mark the one-year anniversary of the diagnosis, and they are based on the voluminous medical records from that time period.

The concluding fifth volume in the series is written from today's perspective, to include that of a grown-up Emily - the girl who lived!

The authors haven't made an effort to "improve" the updates from today's perspective. Tom and Vonne now claim to be wiser on a host of subjects that arise in this family memoir, but a lot of that wisdom stems directly from these experiences, so they felt it made most sense to share them with you, the reader, in this unaltered format.

If this eBook serial helps you better understand an analogous past experience or ongoing crisis in your life, then Tom, Vonne and Emily have accomplished what they set out to do by sharing their intense story.

Excellent Things in Women: A Memoir of Postcolonial Pakistan (Chicago Shorts)





Sometimes, only the most heartbreaking memories possess the capacity--in their elegiac immediacy--to take our breath away. With Excellent Things in Women, Sara Suleri offers the reader a delicately wrought memoir of life in postcolonial Pakistan. Suleri intertwines the violent history of Pakistan's independence with her own intimate experiences--relating the tumult of growing up female during a time of fierce change in the Middle East in the 1960s and '70s. In the two selections presented here, "Excellent Things in Women" and "Meatless Days," we watch as Suleri re-encounters the relationships that inform her voyage from adolescence to womanhood--with her Welsh mother; her Pakistani father, prominent political journalist Z. A. Suleri; and her tenacious grandmother, Dadi, along with her five siblings--as she comes to terms with the difficulties of growing up and her own complicated passage to the West.



Erika and Klaus Mann in New York: Escape from the Magic Mountain (Chicago Shorts)

This is the riveting tale of two brave nonconformists whose dramatic lives open up new perspectives on the history of the twentieth century. Thomas Mann's two eldest children, Erika and Klaus, were unconventional, rebellious, and fiercely devoted to each other. Empowered by their close bond, they espoused vehemently anti-Nazi views in a Europe swept up in fascism and were openly, even defiantly, gay in an age of secrecy and repression. In 1936, they fled to the United States and chose New York as their new adopted home. From the start, the two were embroiled by the literary and intellectual life, political turmoil, and shifting sexual mores of their times. Andrea Weiss engages their struggles, their friendships (Maurice Wertheim and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, among them), and their liaisons, as the siblings try to adapt to their new lives, all while introducing their work to an American audience for the first time.

Song To Kill A Giant (Latvian contemporary)

25 years ago, the people of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania united under broad democratic movements to demand from the Soviet Union the freedom which was taken from them in 1940. One can only admire the courage of these people who, armed only with songs and an urge for justice, challenged the Soviet giant. The world was shaken by this peaceful singing revolution, because it threatened the finely-adjusted bipolar balance of world order. Back then, hardly anyone believed that the Baltic States would even have a chance for greater autonomy in the Soviet Union, let alone their regaining independence.

The success of the Baltic nation's independence movements shook the Soviet Union at its foundation, and in 1991 lead to its collapse. The world as we had known it since the end of the Second World War had irreversibly changed forever. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, for those nations of Eastern Europe and the Baltics, who had been held captive behind the Iron Curtain, World War Two had finally come to an end.

To understand why, it is important to read Sandra Kalniete's book; it tells the story of strategy and tactics, of the difficult choices and compromises which at every step of the way can threatened the ultimate goal in such mass movements. The success story of the people's movements of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia can be used as an example for the many millions of people around the world who still yearn for freedom.

Since writing the book in 2000, Kalniete has gone on to become Latvia's ambassador to the United Nations, France and UNESCO, her country's foreign minister, Latvia's first representative to the European Commission, and, in 2009, a member of the European Parliament. She is the author of several other books.

Where Did My Life Go? A Towering Experience

Author K.D. Sanders is also a drummer who was raised in the Florida Keys. After graduating high school in 1987, he had dreams of becoming a rock star drummer. After a failed attempt in the South Florida area, he moved to San Francisco to live with his older brother. While there, he played in several bands but none brought him closer to rock stardom. One of the bands he was playing drums, decided to move to Los Angeles for a better chance of "making it". He agreed with their decision and made the move with them. He left on a wing and a prayer leaving another bands he played drums for in San Francisco. All he had was a Volkswagen van to transport his drum set down to Los Angeles and a dream of making it in the music business. He didn't have a job or an apartment set up before he left. The band said he could stay with them until he had found both. After about a month of gigs, his welcome came to a screeching halt when he couldn't find a job and as a result, a place to live. He started living in his van still playing gigs with the band, then after some turmoil and a death in his family, the band broke up. Leaving him alone in L.A. still living in his van, as the departing members, moved back up to San Francisco. After being homeless for over a year, in a drunken, out of control, haze, he eventually got a job at Tower Records on the Sunset Strip working there for 3 years, living in his van the whole time until his van was towed and Tower Records went out of business. His experience inspired him to tell his story, "Where Did My Life Go? A Towering Experience"

My name is Bino Byansi Byakuleka: Double essay

,,We must learn to see the stereotypes behind the term asylum seekers. The book is a good start for that." (Susanne Memarnia, taz)

Could you imagine to be a refugee and be treated like a criminal? Not like a human being? How would you like to be welcomed? With Patras Bwansi you can relive this experience. He describes growing up in Uganda with school beatings, tells us about the constant bureaucratic supervision in the German "initial reception facilities", colloquial also called "Lager", as well as his personal outbreak into the protest, calling for humanitarian rights. That this will come only with a political and social rethinking, Lydia Ziemke shows in her text, which is inspired by her artistic work with refugees. This double essay will completely change our thinking about immigrants.

Bino Byansi Byakuleka, formerly known as Patras Bwansi, born in 1979 in Kabale, Uganda is a Textile Artist who currently lives in Berlin. In August 2012 he started a protest tent in Passau Klostergarten and in October he joined the refugee protest camp in Berlin-Kreuzberg at Oranienplatz.

The Current Living Tirthankara Shree Simandhar Swami (Gujarati Edition)

For anyone wondering what is spiritual enlightenment, it is essential to learn the 24 Tirthankaras of the past, and of the present.

In previous era, it was possible to achieve instant enlightenment simply by meeting a Tirthankara. At present, such sudden enlightenment is not possible here on earth.

In the current era, one seeking spiritual awakening can search for spiritual teachers to understand the meaning of spirituality and its transformation, but to attain Self realization one must meet a living Gnani Purush (the enlightened One).

A living Gnani has the spiritual power both to give spiritual enlightenment, and to connect one with Tirthankaras of the present, such as Simandhar Swami of Mahavideh Kshetra.

In the book "The Current Living Tirthankara Shree Simandhar Swami", Gnani Purush offers spiritual guidance about Self Realization, and how to connect with Simandhar Swami for the sake of ultimate liberation (moksha).

The Art of Backscratching in Chicago: Driving with Ed McElroy (Chicago Shorts)

"Ed McElroy, clear of eye, sound of mind, and eighty-three years of age . . . guides his black Cadillac down Halsted Street." So begins longtime Chicago journalist Neil Steinberg's nuanced homage to Ed McElroy: an old-school, behind-the-scenes backscratcher who has driven the rich, powerful, and well-connected around the city, doing favors and calling them in, for decades. Helping a young Steinberg understand the city, McElroy and his take on how a Mayor's son gets to be Mayor and how a wily up-and-comer marries the daughter of a powerful alderman and later becomes governor would enthrall even the most seasoned Chicagoan. In this drive around town and through time, Steinberg ultimately serves up audacious and funny anecdotes about how it helps to stay connected, to know a guy, and to help people out when you can.

Dangal: A Review

Dangal is not just another Aamir Khan movie. More than that, it is a movie that carries a social message - it portrays a responsible father empowering his daughters to realize their dreams through sheer ability and learning. The setting of wrestling serves as a medium for them to realize their aspirations, while Aamir, who plays their father, too gets to realize his own dreams via those of his daughters, who make him proud.

Dangal is much more than a movie. It is a representation of the changing India, a country where women are respected and enjoy equal rights in practice and spirit. Blessed is the home and the family whose women are happy, because they naturally ensure happiness and prosperity for all members. Behind every successful man, is a woman after all. Dangal goes on showcase that with a father like Mahaveer Singh Phogat (superbly played by Aamir), there could be men behind their daughters' successes too.

Pope John XXIII: The Good Pope

Pope John XXIII John XXIII was nicknamed "The Good Pope" because of his humble, loving, and open character and his gracious sense of humor. In possessing those attributes, he is viewed by many to be similar to Pope Francis today. Like Pope Francis, Pope John was wont to stroll about Rome by night and make pastoral visits to sick children and prison inmates. John's secretary, the Italian prelate Loris Capovilla, heard the news from Pope Francis himself and remarked how appropriate it was for the step to be taken by "the successor most similar" to John. Shortly before Pope John's death, the International Balzan Foundation, which is headquartered in Milan and Zurich, awarded P...

Behind the Scenes: Formerly a Slave (Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in The White House)

Behind the Scenes, Formerly a Slave, By Elizabeth Keckley, Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in The White House, Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley (sometimes spelled Keckly; February 1818 - May 1907)[2] was a former slave who became a successful seamstress, civic activist and author in Washington, DC. She was best known as the personal modiste and confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln, the First Lady. Keckley had moved to Washington in 1860 after buying her freedom and that of her son in St. Louis. She created an independent business in the capital based on clients who were the wives of the government elite. Among them were Varina Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis; and Mary Anna Custis Lee, wife of Robert E. Lee. After the American Civil War, Keckley wrote and published an autobiography, Behind the Scenes: Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House (1868). It was both a slave narrative and a portrait of the First Family, especially Mary Todd Lincoln, and considered controversial for breaking privacy about them. It was also her claim as a businesswoman to be part of the new mixed-race, educated middle-class that were visible among the leadership of the black community. Keckley's relationship with Mary Todd Lincoln, the President's wife, was notable for its personal quality and intimacy, as well as its endurance over time.

Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing into Thunderbird

Norval Morrisseau (1932--2007), Ojibway shaman-artist, drew his first sketches at age six in the sand on the shores of Lake Nipigon. By the end of his tumultuous life, the prolific self-taught artist was sought by collectors and imitated by forgers. Critics, art historians and curators alike consider him one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century. Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing Into Thunderbird is an innovative and rich biography of this charismatic and troubled figure. Drawing upon years of extensive research, including interviews with Morrisseau himself, Armand Ruffo evokes the artist's life from childhood to death, in all its vivid triumphs and tragedies. Ruffo draws upon his own Ojibway heritage and experiences to provide insight into Morrisseau's life and iconography from an Ojibway perspective. Captivating and readable, this is a brilliantly creative evocation of the art and life of Norval Morrisseau, a life indelibly tied to art.

Auguste Comte (Key Sociologists)

Auguste Comte is widely acknowledged as the founder of the science of sociology and the 'Religion of Humanity'. In this fascinating study, the first major reassessment of Comte's sociology for many years, Mike Gane draws on recent scholarship and presents a new reading of this remarkable figure. Comte's contributions to the history and philosophy of science have decisively influenced positive methodologies. He coined the term 'sociology' and gave it its first content, and he is renowned for having introduced the sociology of gender and emotion into sociology. What is less well known however, is that Comte contributed to ethics, and indeed coined the word 'altruism'. In this important work Gane examines Comte's sociological vision and shows that, because he thought sociology could and should be reflexive, encyclopaedic and utopian, he considered topics such as fetishism, polytheism, fate, love, and the relations between sociology, science, theology and culture. This fascinating account of the birth of sociology is an unprecedented introductory text on Comte. Gane's work is an essential read for all sociologists and students of the discipline.

Terrace Heroes: The Life and Times of the 1930s Professional Footballer (Sport in the Global Society)

The 1930's saw the birth of the football idol, the 'terrace hero' prototypes for today's powerful media sport stars. The players of the 1930's were the first generation of what we now regard as 'professionals', yet until recently the life and careers of footballers of this generation has been little studied. During 1930's Britain, football became increasingly commercialised, and the rise and development of both local and national media, in particular broadcast media, enabled players to become widely recognised outside of their immediate local context for the first time. Tracing the origins, playing careers and 'afterlives' of several First Division players of the era, Graham Kelly's revealing history explores the reality of living in Britain in the 1930's and draws interesting comparisons with lives of our contemporary 'terrace heroes', the football stars of today.

The O'Dell File

The general public has never heard of Jack O'Dell. But many of those who worked with him in the '50s and '60s consider him the unsung hero of the Black Freedom Movement. Victor Navasky, the longtime editor of The Nation and author of the acclaimed book Kennedy Justice, drawing on secret government files and interviews with O'Dell himself, seeks to correct that historical oversight.

O'Dell, at one time a close confidant of Martin Luther King Jr., was described by J. Edgar Hoover as "the number five Communist in the United States", cited as a reason for the wiretapping of MLK, and was subsequently forced out of King's inner circle. In this compassionate and vivid biography, Navasky reveals O'Dell's unique organizing capacity and brilliant mind while lamenting what American society, obsessed by the so-called Communist menace, lost by disqualifying him from being an open and visible contributor to the civil rights movement.
