What exactly is manhood? How do guys get there? Tim Brown won the Heisman Trophy at Notre Dame and starred in the NFL for seventeen seasons. He left the game as a Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders legend and one of the most respected men in sports. Now "Mr. Raider" shares his amazing journey-the triumphs, the heartbreaks, the struggles with women, Al Davis, and God-as well as the principles and priorities that made him the man he is today. Much more than a sports memoir, The Making of a Man reveals how faith, family, honor, and integrity have everything to do with true manhood and a life well-lived. Whether you are a rabid fan or have little interest in football, a young boy or already facing the fourth quarter of your life, these pages will both challenge and inspire you to become the man you've always known you could be.

The popular image of journalistic life in days gone by may well be of the heaving newsroom, populated by harassed men with press passes stuck in the bands of their trilbies, but what of the life of the roving freelancer, scribing under his own steam? Orphaned Reg Shay began working life in Fleet Street during the second world war as a messenger before moving up to the news desk and later becoming a South London court reporter. He subsequently moved to Rhodesia for family health reasons where he became a respected and sought-after international war and political correspondent writing for, amongst others, the Evening Standard, Time, Life, and the Mirror; broadcasting regularly on America's ABC News (radio) and ITN's News at Ten. From death-defying excursions up the crocodile-infested Zambezi river (he survived a croc attack), to becoming one country's 'most wanted man' for untrue alleged espionage activities; he was directly responsible for saving many children's lives by discovering a Rhodesian concentration camp and then forcing its immediate closure. He covered four African civil wars over an nineteen-year period, from the Congo to Mozambique, Rhodesia and Angola. During the latter, Henry Kissinger relied solely on Shay's Associated Press reports. This is the story of a life, filmic in its intensity and excitement and uncompromising in honesty and principles (he twice resigned in a personal battle against media censorship), rendered all the more amazing for the fact that Shay appears to have more lives than a clowder of cats.

If you lived on the notorious Canterbury Estate in the '40s and '50s, then you knew there was one man you did not want to cross: Charlie Hudson. A solitary man, feared and respected by the gangsters of the time, Charlie was a boxer who never lost a fight, in or out of the ring - the most infamous of The Canterbury Warriors. My Uncle Charlie, the second title in the explosive series unravels a story of debauchery, crime and self-destruction. Charlie Hudson was a born leader. The eldest of eight brothers and four sisters and with a boxer for a father, fighting was in his blood. And as the young protege of local Italian gangster, Mr Cappovanni, Charlie not only learned to knock every opponent out, he also learned the tools of the crime and extortion trade well; emerging into adulthood in the middle of the war years as a natural heir: running cons, illegal books and a band of prostitutes. But when Charlie met Betty, a sweet, caring girl, he was determined to be a better man for her. He'd still deal with 'business' but no more would he bed his working girls, and the birth of their baby girl, Elizabeth, sealed it: he knew life could not get any better. But for a man who had only ever lived in the belly of the Canterbury Estate underworld, it could definitely get worse...Gritty and engrossing, book two of the Hudson family saga delves deeper into history of the infamous Canterbury Warriors; the true story of one man's ascendancy to power, and the tragedy that brought it all crashing down.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'This enthralling saga of crime, passion, and betrayal, is a compelling portrait of one of empire's great, unsung anti-heroes. The book is a scintillating achievement.' - Jean Comaroff, Harvard University Johannesburg was - and is - the Frontier of Money. Within months of its founding, the mining camp was host to organised crime: the African 'Regiment of the Hills' and 'Irish Brigade' bandits. Bars, brothels, boarding houses and hotels oozed testosterone and violence, and the use of fists and guns was commonplace. Beyond the chaos were clear signs of another struggle, one to maintain control, honour and order within the emerging male and mining dominated culture. In the underworld, the dictum of 'honour among thieves', as well as a hatred of informers, testified to attempts at self-regulation. A 'real man' did not take advantage of an opponent by employing underhand tactics. It had to be a 'fair fight' if a man was to be respected. This was the world that 'One-armed Jack' McLoughlin - brigand, soldier, sailor, mercenary, burglar, highwayman and safe-cracker - entered in the early 1890s to become Johannesburg's most infamous 'Irish' anti-hero and social bandit. McLoughlin's infatuation with George Stevenson prompted him to recruit the young Englishman into his gang of safe-crackers but 'Stevo' was a man with a past and primed for personal and professional betrayal. It was a deadly mixture. Honour could only be retrieved through a Showdown at the Red Lion.

On the day following the guillotining of Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange lamented the loss of the man commonly considered the father of modern chemistry. "It took them only an instant to cut off that head," he said, "but it is unlikely that a hundred years will suffice to reproduce a similar one." Although he lived only to the age of 51, Lavoisier revolutionized the field of chemistry. He created the first modern table of chemical elements, recognized the role oxygen plays in the rusting of metals, demonstrated that water-previously considered one of the four fundamental elements-is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen, and asserted that the total weights of the products of a chemical reaction must equal the total weights of the reactants. Yet despite his remarkable importance to modern chemistry, Lavoisier's scientific work was more a hobby than a profession. In fact, because he made his living as a tax collector, his scientific work was relegated to early morning and after-dinner hours. Appropriately, the picture Poirier paints of Lavoisier is that of the whole man-not only a scientist but a successful financier, respected economist, and influential administrator as well.

Flying Hours Fighting High

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Squadron Leader Andrew Patrick Millar's Distinguished Service Order citation attests to his 'superb leadership', and 'excellent example and personal achievements' that were 'largely responsible for the high standard and efficiency' of his squadron. The Flying Hours is Squadron Leader Millar's candid and retrospective personal account of his experiences while serving as a pilot with the Royal Air Force and commanding No. 20 Squadron in the Far East during the Second World War battle against the Japanese. Utilising notes made at the time and his comprehensive logbook Andrew Millar's gripping prose describes the trials and tribulations of mounting combat operations against the Japanese while based in India and Burma, firstly in Westland Lysanders and then piloting Hawker Hurricanes. The No. 20 Squadron motto was facta non verba (actions not words) and Andrew Millar was clearly a well respected man of action. The award of the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Distinguished Service Order are testament to the fact that a young man, who read medicine prior to volunteering for the Royal Air Force, became a highly skilled pilot who led by example. Incorporating previous unpublished photographs The Flying Hours recalls in detail Andrew Millar's operations against the enemy, the strains of combat, and the hardships and difficulties under which his squadron lived, along with the inter-personal relationships, and the minutiae of life. The brutal and uncompromising fighting in Burma has often been described as the 'Forgotten War'. We are fortunate that Squadron Leader Andrew Millar's memoir ensures that one crucial element of the Far East air war is no longer 'forgotten'.

Rastafarian Children of Solomon DEEP BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Tracing their lineage back to King Solomon-the wisest man who ever lived- Rastafarians follow a spiritual tradition of peace and meditation that is more a way of life than an organised religion. During his 15 years living in Jamaica, Gerald Hausman developed deep friendships with Rastafarians and rootsmen, enabling him to experience firsthand the beliefs and traditions of these followers of the Kebra Nagast-the African gospel excised from the King James version of the Bible. He met bush doctors, Rasta preachers, members of the Marley family and respected elders who knew Marcus Garvey, prophet of the Rasta movement and vocal proponent of the Pan-African movement in America. He, also, met elders who were present when Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia and descendant of the House of David, came to Jamaica in the 1960s. Through interviews with fishermen, mystics and wise men, as well as direct encounters with spirits and the spiritual, the author reveals the deep wisdom that underlies the "old ways" of the Rastas. He connects their stories, lives and teachings with important biblical passages as well as reggae songs. He shares their views on the medicinal and meditative powers of cannabis-the sacred herb of Solomon-and explains that while Rastas believe it to be "the opener of the door," they maintain that peace and understanding must be found within. Illustrating the unwavering faith and hope of the Rastafari of Jamaica, Hausman shows them to be a people who, above all, emphasise equality, because the Holy Spirit within each of us makes us all one and the same. * Includes the author's interviews with bush doctors, healers and Rastafarians gathered during his 15 years of living in Jamaica * Reveals the old ways of the Rastafarians and how their beliefs form an unbroken lineage tracing back to King Solomon * Explains the connection of Rasta beliefs to important biblical passages
