10. Elevenses [2017]

Book
20 unnumbered pages : color illustrations ; 33 cm
"'Trevor and I had wanted to do a collaboration for Granary for some time. I had fooled around before with a longish, prosy poem in the form of a diary--this one is and isn't--and while Trevor was fashioning his gorgeous images, I did a good deal of writing. The book really came together, and acquired something of a shape, after we hit upon the title. Not only do we both love the word elevenses, which the British use for their late morning pick-me-up; for a number of years Trevor and I have been meeting for coffee (and a walk in good weather) at 11:00 a.m. So the title seemed perfect for our collaborating in print (with no coffee stains marring Steve's beautiful production).'--Charles North"--Publisher's website.

Life in the parched landscape of El Paso is the setting for this book of stories about people navigating their way through dysfunctional lives with the help of friends and family-people like Monica Montoya, a housewife and mother whose affair leaves her pregnant, causing her to revisit the legacy of her father, a man who maintained two separate families on either side of the Mexican-American border. In spite of their bad choices, the characters in this collection never give up.

17. The fire next time [2017]

Book
265 pages, 1 unnumbered leaf, 10 unnumbered pages : illustrations ; 35 cm
  • Ministers of change / John Lewis
  • The fire next time. My dungeon shook : letter to my nephew on the one hundredth anniversary of the Emancipation ; Down at the Cross : letter from a region in my mind / James Baldwin
  • Eyewitness / Steve Schapiro
  • Brother James / Gloria Karefa-Smart.
"First published in 1963, James Baldwin's The fire next time stabbed at the heart of America's so-called "Negro problem." As remarkable for its masterful prose as it is for its frank and personal account of the black experience in the United States, it is considered one of the most passionate and influential explorations of 1960s race relations, weaving thematic threads of love, faith, and family into a candid assault on the hypocrisy of the "land of the free." Now, James Baldwin's rich, raw, and ever relevant prose is reprinted in a letterpress edition with more than 100 photographs from Steve Schapiro, who traveled the American South with Baldwin for Life magazine. The encounter thrust Schapiro into the thick of the movement, allowing for vital, often iconic, images both of civil rights leaders--including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Fred Shuttlesworth, and Jerome Smith--and such landmark events as the March on Washington and the Selma March. Rounding out the edition are Schapiro's stories from the field, a new introduction by civil rights legend and U.S. Congressman John Lewis, captions by Marcia Davis of The Washington post, and an essay by Gloria Baldwin Karefa-Smart, who was with her brother James in Sierra Leone when he started to work on the story. The result is a remarkable visual and textual record of one of the most important and enduring struggles of the American experience"--Publisher's WWW site.

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the 1966 FIFA World Cup, hosted in England. Unlike previous literature, which has tended to focus activities on the field, this book brings an institutional level approach to organizing the 1966 FIFA World Cup and examines the management process in the buildup and execution of the event. This intriguing new volume looks at the first significant UK government intervention in football and how this created a significant legacy as the government started to take a real interest in leisure facilities and stadium safety as policy areas after this competition. Foundations of Managing Sporting Events will be of considerable interest to research academics working on aspects of post war British, Imperial, and World history including sport, social, business, economic, and political history.
