'If David Lloyd-George was the most charismatic person I ever laid eyes on, Matt Busby was the most charismatic I have known, when he was the manager of Manchester United and I was a reporter travelling with the team.' Keith Dewhurst first saw United play in 1946. Ten years later he was writing about them for the Manchester Evening Chronicle. Half a lifetime later, he looks back on a passion that helped to shaped his life. On his journey from the terraces to the press box and then on to the game's inner sanctums, Dewhurst fell in love with a club and a game. A schoolboy fan when Busby arrived at Old Trafford, he was on the terraces as great teams took shape, and there as a reporter to witness the aftermath of the club's great tragedy - the Munich air crash. He was there too on the road with Jimmy Murphy, United's assistant manager and coaching genius, as the team played on during Busby's long recovery. In Busby, he witnessed both the hero of football legend and the darker side of a master manipulator. But in Murphy, he found his hero. It was Murphy who would tutor him in football and dreams, and Busby's ambiguous nature. The friends Dewhurst made then, the players and the coaches, the lost and the saved, are with him still - in memory, if no longer in life. When You Put on a Red Shirt is Dewhurst's homage to them and to his youth, evoking with vivid brilliance a lost era, and powerfully recapturing a world which is becoming myth.

Henry Lafayette Dodge has long been a familiar name in 19th century American Southwestern history. As one of the earliest and most effective Indian agents to the Navajo, he has been portrayed as a congenial, sympathetic and compassionate advocate for the tribe—a veritable role model. The Navajo knew him as Red Shirt, a man they came to respect, appreciate and trust. Those who knew Dodge admitted, although often grudgingly, that he had unrivaled influence over the tribe. By today’s sensibilities, Henry L. Dodge was hardly a role model. In his youth, he was irresponsible, hot-headed and violent. As an adult, he was sued for assault and battery, land fraud, breach of promises and misuse of public funds. He apparently couldn’t be trusted with money, his own or others’. Finally brought down by scandal, he fled Wisconsin in the dead of night, abandoning his career, his wife and his children, leaving them nearly destitute. How then should history assess him? Honestly: precisely as he was, an ambitious and imperfect man. The honest telling gives a straightforward account of not only Henry L. Dodge, but what became the veritable mythology of the West, from the bawdy old French Missouri river towns to the raucous lead mining districts of southwest Wisconsin, through the slaughter of the Winnebago and Black Hawk wars to the invasion of New Mexico and the chaos of the Indian frontier; it is a gritty personal tale of the true West.
An autobiography by Henry 'Seaman' Dan, which explores his working life as musician, pearl-shell diver, boat skipper, drover, prospector and taxi driver.

Students would submit jokes in a cardboard box, appropriately named the "dry box".Lanehart would choose five jokes from the box to read to his students. They would then judge them on a scale of 1-10, according to the dryness of the joke. The winner of the best joke won a brown paper towel. Lanehart saved nearly all of the jokes, and these have been the source of his books. This is the last of the four book series. Lanehart has previously written The Dry Off Book 1: The Mysteriously Silly Solo Edition, The Dry Off Book 2: The Dynamically Dumb Duo Edition, and The Dry Off Book 3.0 for Smarties. This final book, The Not So Dry Off Book 4: the Critically Ashamed Insensitive Edition is a slight departure from the others. Most of the jokes are similar to those in the other three books. In this book, every joke is illustrated with clip art, and contains some jokes that were never read to students in a middle school classroom. There are long jokes, short jokes, and some that might be offensive to a sensitive reader. Thus the name of the book. The cover resembles the brown paper towels the joke winners would receive! So, enjoy the humor, do not take them seriously, and have some fun with the final book of the series. Lanehart has left his computer and gone fishing!!
Outstanding collection of nearly 200 crowd-pleasing mental magic feats requiring no special equipment. Author offers insider's tips and expert advice on techniques, presentation, diversions, patter, staging, more.
Negotiating Buck Naked examines the accord closely. Why did the violence end? How was the accord reached? What factors enabled it to succeed when numerous other interventions had failed? How did it change the patterns of conflict between the factions? To answer these questions, Cran develops a theoretical framework for understanding the process of dispute resolution, emphasizing that competing discourses are juxtaposed and that it is these different but equally valid narratives that must be negotiated. Using this approach, Cran extracts from the Doukhobor conflict valuable lessons for understanding the nature of both terrorism and hegemonic practices, and traces how we view conflict and intervention from a Western perspective.

This amazing collection of Hilarious Jokes You Can Tell Anywhere has been culled by author Silvio Famularo over a lifetime. The 74-year-old comedian proudly presents the finest of the thousands of clean jokes he has heard over the years, most of which have been embellished by his skill at eliciting the maximum humor from each yarn. A good many of the jokes have been adapted, rephrased and given twists so that they reflect my own personal style. This is particularly the case with the Italian jokes, most of which were not really Italian jokes when first related to me. I turned them into Italian jokes because I thought they sounded funnier told with a foreign accent. Did you hear the one about ...About the Author: Silvio Famularo lives in Wellington, New Zealand.

After the end of Civil War in 1865, more than four million slaves were set free. There were several efforts to record the remembrances of the living former slaves. The Federal Writers' Project was one such project by the United States federal government to support writers during the Great Depression by asking them to interview and record the myriad stories and experiences of slavery of former slaves. The resulting collection preserved hundreds of life stories from 17 US states that would otherwise have been lost in din of modernity and America's eagerness to deliberately forget the blot on its recent past. This edition brings to you the complete collection of first hand experiences and voices from the past that makes one question whether is it safe to forget or keep the memories alive for bigger battles ahead. A must read for everyone who is interested in US History, race relations and authentic historical research.
