In The Miracle of St. Anthony Adrian Wojnarowski follows Hurley through a gripping and heartrending season as he struggles to lead a troubled team to glory through his unparalleled understanding of the game and his ceaseless determination to see no more children lost to these streets.

Urbanization is a global phenomenon and the book emphasizes that this is not just a social-technological process. It is also a social-ecological process where cities are places for nature, and where cities also are dependent on, and have impacts on, the biosphere at different scales from local to global. The book is a global assessment and delivers four main conclusions: Urban areas are expanding faster than urban populations. Half the increase in urban land across the world over the next 20 years will occur in Asia, with the most extensive change expected to take place in India and China Urban areas modify their local and regional climate through the urban heat island effect and by altering precipitation patterns, which together will have significant impacts on net primary production, ecosystem health, and biodiversity Urban expansion will heavily draw on natural resources, including water, on a global scale, and will often consume prime agricultural land, with knock-on effects on biodiversity and ecosystem services elsewhere Future urban expansion will often occur in areas where the capacity for formal governance is restricted, which will constrain the protection of biodiversity and management of ecosystem services

In this reissue of Tales from the Maryland Terrapins, fans can relive the most profound memories from more than 100 years of athletics at the University of Maryland in College Park. Authored by David Ungrady, a former two-sport athlete at the school, the book includes a series of first-person anecdotes that reflect the joys and challenges of his athletic career as well as the rich history of collegiate athletics at the school. While it was still the Maryland Agricultural College, the university staged its first intercollegiate athletic competition in 1888, playing baseball games against St. John’s College and the Naval Academy. The first organized competition for football was in 1892. The athletic program began to flourish early in the 1900s. Men’s basketball began shortly after the turn of the century, in 1904, and men’s lacrosse began in 1910. Women’s sports such as basketball, rifling, and soccer started as intramural sports in the 1920s. The women’s rifle team won several titles after it was first organized in 1922. By the 1940s, the men’s intercollegiate program boasted such national-caliber programs as baseball, boxing, football, lacrosse, track and field, and soccer. Women’s teams started competing in intercollegiate competition in 1960 and later blossomed during the last quarter of the 20th century. Now, over 100 years after the athletic program’s inception, Maryland has sent numerous players to professional sports organizations, including the NFL, NBA, and MLB. If you’re a fan of Maryland athletics, you’ll find Tales from the Maryland Terrapins to be the perfect addition to your bookshelf!

As Israel's control of the Occupied Palestinian Territory nears its fiftieth anniversary, The Writing on the Wall offers a critical perspective on the international law of occupation. Advocating a normative and functional approach to occupation and to the question of when it exists, it analyzes the application of humanitarian and human rights law, pointing to the risk of using the law of occupation in its current version to legitimize new variations of conquest and colonialism. The book points to the need for reconsidering the law of occupation in light of changing forms of control, such as those evident in Gaza. Although the Israeli occupation is a main focal point, the book broadens its compass to look at other cases, such as Iraq, Northern Cyprus, and Western Sahara, highlighting the role that international law plays in all of these cases.

This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields - a feminist leader ahead of her times. It is also the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes - even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with 'lunacy and sorrow'; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. It provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line: "In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases."
