Book Excerpt :

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was probably the best quarterback ever to play for the legendary Messina Spartans. Fifteen years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into an unbeatable football dynasty. Now, as Coach Rake’s “boys” sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him. For Neely Crenshaw, a man who must finally forgive his coach – and himself – before he can get on with his life, the stakes are especially high.

Book Short Summary:

(Steve) Moore's work evokes the bizarre imagery of Gary Larson's The Far Side and Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes. --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Even the most golf-obsessed must admit it: Swatting that tiny dimpled ball around meticulously manicured landscaping makes for one hilarious game. For everyone who appreciates that humor--and especially for those too serious about golf to crack a smile--Dibs on His Clubs! parades the lighter side of this sport enjoyed by millions. Dibs on His Clubs! is AMP's first book with Steve Moore, the cartoonist and creative genius behind the In the Bleachers daily panel, now syndicated to newspapers throughout the U.S. Steve narrows his normal general sports focus to golf, a game that captivates everyone from avid amateurs to those who enjoy watching multimillionaire athletes at work. Steve brings his trademark wacky characters and outrageous situation comedy to every frame of this golf-guffawing collection. Dibs on His Clubs! comes richly illustrated in Moore's sparse but dead-on drawing style. His paunchy duffers are delightful. His players' expressions are outrageous. And no other cartoonist working today finds more ways to inject the timely and the totally-off-the-wall aspects of sports into his work. This book's a humor hole in one for everyone who ever picked up a club, or who simply appreciates seeing a great comedic mind at the top of his game.

Book Short Summary:

Although there have been a number of studies on Black resistance, very few of these have focused exclusively on such a wide range of resistance campaigns and strategies within a single volume. One of the central arguments of this study is that from as early as the sixteenth century, when Europeans attempted to systematically exploit Africans, Black people have engaged in a variety of organised and sustained resistance campaigns to assert their independence and identity. This book examines some of the different strategies employed by Black people in Africa and the Diaspora in response to European domination and exploitation. Drawing upon research from scholars based at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana and the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, this collection of original essays, covers the academic disciplines of African and Caribbean history, literature, politics and psychology. Despite these different approaches, the consistent theme throughout, centres on the strategies employed by Black people to resist European domination and oppression, by fighting for their freedom at every possible opportunity, whether they were in Africa, Britain or the Caribbean.

Book Short Summary:

In American Places, more than two dozen of America's most gifted historians write about their encounters with historic places, bringing a personal viewpoint to bear on a wide variety of sites, ranging from Monticello to Fenway Park. Here James M. McPherson writes about the battlefield of Gettysburg, and how walking the ground of Pickett's Charge inspired one of his books. Kevin Starr visits the Musso & Frank Grill in Hollywood and finds many of the flavors of California history there. Joel Williamson takes a bemused tour of Elvis Presley's Graceland, and David Kennedy tells the story of the "Pig War" on San Juan Island, where a spat between Britain and America over a speck of land in the Pacific Northwest helped determine the shape of the U.S. and Canada. William Freehling compares two places, Charleston's Battery and New Orleans' Jackson Square, showing how each reveals the different spirit of the society that created it. And Edward Ayers talks about spending time in Cyberspace, U.S.A. Other pieces include Robert Dallek on the FDR Memorial, David Hackett Fischer on the Boston Common, and William Leuchtenburg on his native borough of Queens. American Places celebrates the career of Sheldon Meyer, who over his years at Oxford University Press has published some of America's most distinguished historians, including many Pulitzer Prize and Bancroft Prize winners, virtually all of whom have contributed to this volume.

Book Short Summary:

Festival of the Fatapult is a collection of short stories by Nathan G. Sellers. This book pays homage to and brings back the classic form of short story telling made popular by such American authors as Washington Irving, Stephen Crane, Edgar Allan Poe, Bret Harte, Edith Wharton, John Cheever, Raymond Carver, and a host of others. The book goes against the modern convention of short stories by bringing the hyperbolic back to what used to be one of the most popular forms of entertainment. In accordance with traditional short story form, Festival of the Fatapult spans a vast array of literary genres, from a touch of romanticism to a dab of gothic, from mystical and magical realism to fables and folk tales; part fantasy and part satire, this compilation is covered with absurdity and complimented with the Nathan G. Sellers style of literary entertainment. Contained in this book are eight short stories—all strange, thought-provoking, and comedic. There is something for everyone in these pages. Fans of classic short stories will love this book, and those who are not fans will soon become ones.

Book Short Summary:

Merlyn's Mind completes the original trilogy of segmented story-dreams by the sixth century Merlyn, the Scotsman. The Present, real time story-dream brothers, Robert the poet and Richard the writer, continue their theoretical discussions in real time from May 2007 into late February 2008. The Past, with Grandma's Stories begin with Lady Allowyn and Sir Geoffrey in the sixteenth century and works her way into the twentieth century where Grandma Earth ends her genealogical narratives with the nineteen year olds Robert and Richard Graystone and their future wives, Connie and Cindy Bleacher, at the dining room table celebrating the late FDR's January birthday with their respective parents and grandparents, first in 1960, then again in 1961. Thus, old Grandma completes word-filled human snapshots, fruitfully linking the Graystone and Bleacher generations from 12,000 years ago in the first book to the present, 2008, in the third book. Merlyn's suggestive Future, titled 'Pouch Text,' concludes with all the major characters alive but one. The family group ( a mixture of human beings and their physically and mentally human-like marsupial counterparts from HomePlanets across the Milky Way galaxy) focus on raising seven year old Diplomat, a hybrid of both species and cultures, on Earth.

  • Pdf File: skin-bleaching-in-black-atlantic-zones.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book's discussion of skin bleaching, lightening and toning in Black Atlantic zones disengages with the usual tropes of Black Nationalism and global white supremacy such as 'the desire to be white', 'low self-esteem' and 'self-hatred' and instead engages with the global multi-billion dollar market in lighter skins with products from local cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies and entrepreneurs. This practice can be for short-term strategic purposes and the production of bleached lightness and new subjectivities through skin shades across Black Atlantic zones - the UK, USA, Caribbean, Latin America and the Africa continent- is also a simultaneous critique of continuing pigmentocracy and darker skin disadvantage. This book seeks to decolonize skin bleaching, lightening and toning by exploring its racialized gender political and libidinal economies in the Black Atlantic. In so doing it moves past the notion that global white supremacy dynamizes the practice to a position where the interaction of colourism and 'post-race' neo-liberal racialization aesthetics becomes the focus.

Book Short Summary:

The greatest American Indian baseball player of all time, Charles Albert Bender, was, according to a contemporary, the coolest pitcher in the game. Using a trademark delivery, an impressive assortment of pitches that may have included the game s first slider, and an apparently unflappable demeanor, he earned a reputation as baseball s great clutch pitcher during tight Deadball Era pennant races and in front of boisterous World Series crowds. More remarkably yet, Chief Bender s Hall of Fame career unfolded in the face of immeasurable prejudice. This skillfully told and complete account of Bender s life is also a portrait of greatness of character maintained despite incredible pressure of how a celebrated man thrived while carrying an untold weight on his shoulders. With a journalist s eye for detail and a novelist s feel for storytelling, Tom Swift takes readers on Bender s improbable journey from his early years on the White Earth Reservation, to his development at the Carlisle Indian School, to his big break and eventual rise to the pinnacle of baseball. The story of a paradoxical American sports hero, one who achieved a once-unfathomable celebrity while suffering the harsh injustices of a racially intolerant world, Chief Bender s Burden is an eye-opening and inspiring narrative of a unique American life.

Book Short Summary:

Pop music surrounds us - in our cars, over supermarket speakers, even when we are laid out at the dentist - but how often do we really hear what's playing? Switched on Pop is the book based on the eponymous podcast that has been hailed by NPR, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, and Entertainment Weekly for its witty and accessible analysis of Top 40 hits. Through close studies of sixteen modern classics, musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter Charlie Harding shift pop from the background to the foreground, illuminating the essential musical concepts behind two decades of chart-topping songs. In 1939, Aaron Copland published What to Listen for in Music, the bestseller that made classical music approachable for generations of listeners. Eighty years later, Nate and Charlie update Copland's idea for a new audience and repertoire: 21st century pop, from Britney to Beyoncé, Outkast to Kendrick Lamar. Despite the importance of pop music in contemporary culture, most discourse only revolves around lyrics and celebrity. Switched on Pop gives readers the tools they need to interpret our modern soundtrack. Each chapter investigates a different song and artist, revealing musical insights such as how a single melodic motif follows Taylor Swift through every genre that she samples, André 3000 uses metric manipulation to get listeners to "shake it like a Polaroid picture," or Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee create harmonic ambiguity in "Despacito" that mirrors the patterns of global migration. Replete with engaging discussions and eye-catching illustrations, Switched on Pop brings to life the musical qualities that catapult songs into the pop pantheon. Readers will find themselves listening to familiar tracks in new waysand not just those from the Top 40. The timeless concepts that Nate and Charlie define can be applied to any musical style. From fanatics to skeptics, teenagers to octogenarians, non-musicians to professional composers, every music lover will discover something ear-opening in Switched on Pop.

Book Short Summary:

In the summer of 1932, at the beginning of the turbulent decade that would remake America, baseball fans were treated to one of the most thrilling seasons in the history of the sport. As the nation drifted deeper into the Great Depression and reeled from social unrest, baseball was a diversion for a troubled country--and yet the world of baseball was marked by the same edginess that pervaded the national scene. On-the-field fights were as common as double plays. Amid the National League pennant race, Cubs' shortstop Billy Jurges was shot by showgirl Violet Popovich in a Chicago hotel room. When the regular season ended, the Cubs and Yankees clashed in what would be Babe Ruth's last appearance in the fall classic. After the Cubs lost the first two games in New York, the series resumed in Chicago at Wrigley Field, with Democratic presidential candidate Franklin Roosevelt cheering for the visiting Yankees from the box seats behind the Yankees' dugout. In the top of the fifth inning the game took a historic turn. As Ruth was jeered mercilessly by Cubs players and fans, he gestured toward the outfield and then blasted a long home run. After Ruth circled the bases, Roosevelt exclaimed, "Unbelievable!" Ruth's homer set off one of baseball's longest-running and most intense debates: did Ruth, in fact, call his famous home run? Rich with historical context and detail, The Called Shot dramatizes the excitement of a baseball season during one of America's most chaotic summers.

Book Short Summary:

A vivid trip through the mind of the top professional wrestler in the business—a nobody from nowhere who achieved his ambitions and walked away with the gold and the girl of his dreams. Ride alongside Jon Moxley as he retraces some of the highways traveled on his remarkable journey. Revel in the never-before-told stories about his early life in Cincinnati, Ohio; the gritty independent wrestling scene where he cut his teeth; the complicated corporate landscape of the WWE where he bucked against authority; and the rebellious upstart AEW, where he won the championship in 2020 and was finally free to achieve the vision of the wrestler he’d always wanted to be. With plenty of pitstops and revelatory insights, including grisly ultraviolent encounters, crazy characters who became lifelong friends, and his unforgettable matches in Japan, MOX is the riveting account of the life of a brawler. It is a tale written in blood and soaked in debauchery, with a good dose of wisdom accumulated along the way. More than a backstage pass into the arena, MOX is a ticket into the ring. Once inside, you’ll never look at pro wrestling the same again.

Book Short Summary:

The Winds of Fate Micronesian Love Story is an adventurous story about a brave, young, ambitious African American woman and university professor, who accepted the challenge to train teachers in Micronesia during the 1970s on how to educate children with handicaps in their classrooms. The obstacles she faced were enormous and the lessons she learned were immeasurable. She traveled and worked alone in places she had never heard of; each island was very different, undeveloped and undergoing major political changes. She discovered that special education concepts and practices were not part of the natives' cultures, languages, vocabulary or understanding in the societies where she worked. She had to learn how to train teachers using their cultural norms, learning styles, languages and experiences. She learned immediately that the training agenda and materials from the U.S. mainland would not work in Micronesia. She learned that the teachers used storytelling, their ancestral medium, to teach and learn; therefore, she had to change her approach overnight. She created stories every night in her hotel room to be able to train the teachers. During her seven year assignment on the islands, a riveting love story was born between her and a Micronesian man. They were two people from two different worlds, cultures, languages and ways of life but their romance became an enthralling, passionate, powerful love affair that seemed destined to happen.

Jimmy and Lola come up with a variety of ways to prevent the wall from being built, knowing that not only will they miss the view, but their families will be impacted from the loss of income.

Book Short Summary:

In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina pummeled the lower end of Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, a peninsula housing one of the nation's most isolated, vulnerable, and vital counties. A year later several ravaged communities came together to form South Plaquemines High. Kids who were former rivals defiantly nicknamed their football team the Hurricanes and made the 2006 state playoffs. In 2007, South Plaquemines set its sights on a state championship. The Hurricanes used a trailer as a makeshift locker room and lifted weights in a destroyed gym that had no electricity. For the players, many of them still living in FEMA trailers, football offered a refuge. Bestselling author Jeré Longman spent two seasons following the team. In The Hurricanes, the team's journey provides a lens through which to view the legacy of Katrina, the cycle of poverty in rural America, and the attempt to maintain traditions in the face of uncertainty. Football is a familiar remnant of the way things used to be—and a sign of hope in a place of disaster.

But now American fighting men--proven on the bloody beaches of Normandy and in the minefields of Korea--are summoned to help beat back the guerilla forces of Ho Chi Minh. To some, the "secret" war in Indochina was the depth of folly. To others, like the Majors, it pointed to the heights of glory...

Book Short Summary:

More than any other sport, baseball has developed its own niche in America’s culture and psyche. Some researchers spend years on detailed statistical analyses of minute parts of the game, while others wax poetic about its players and plays. Many trace the beginnings of the civil rights movement in part to the Major Leagues’ decision to integrate, and the words and phrases of the game (for example, pinch-hitter and out in left field) have become common in our everyday language. From AARON, HENRY onward, this book covers all of what might be called the cultural aspects of baseball (as opposed to the number-rich statistical information so widely available elsewhere). Biographical sketches of all Hall of Fame players, owners, executives and umpires, as well as many of the sportswriters and broadcasters who have won the Spink and Frick awards, join entries for teams, owners, commissioners and league presidents. Advertising, agents, drafts, illegal substances, minor leagues, oldest players, perfect games, retired uniform numbers, superstitions, tripleheaders, and youngest players are among the thousands of entries herein. Most entries open with a topical quote and conclude with a brief bibliography of sources for further research. The whole work is exhaustively indexed and includes 119 photographs.

Book Short Summary:

The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy is still as relevant today as it was on November 22, 1963. Over the years, novices and experts have poured over evidence, witness testimonies, pictures and film of the covert cover-up and controversial killing of JFK. To date, nobody has been able to penetrate the elusive plot and classified plan that was established 365 days prior to November 22. 1963 Until now. The training, planning and actions leading up to the most infamous crime of the twentieth century is as controversial as the assassination itself. 365 to Dallas is the never before heard confession of one of the ten team members that carried out the execution of President John F. Kennedy that fateful November day in Dallas, TX over half a century ago. Mark, only eighteen at the time, was one out of ten soldiers selected to be highly trained for this forbidden and deeply covert mission. Six shooters and four distractors under the umbrella of the Untied States Intelligence agencies were trained for one mission only: The assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Author John Gold has over a decade of military and civilian law enforcement investigative training. In 2000, John Gold was called to ministry. In the summer of 2013, John’s mentor Mark, while watching the 2007 Movie Shooter, broke down and, over the course of the next year, confessed to being one of a team of ten that assassinated President Kennedy. For five years, John Gold investigated Mark’s claims, trying to disprove the confession. John was unsuccessful. 365 to Dallas is the true tale of Mark’s participation in the murder that occurred in Dallas, TX over half a century ago. You will discover the new proof, evidence and the never before told tale of the 365 days of training, planning and execution leading up to that fateful November day.
