In its first 20 years the Premier League has moved football from a state of unprecedented crisis against a backdrop of recession, strikes and hooliganism to a global sport of unimaginable riches. To mark this anniversary Ian Ridley takes stock of a phenomenon that has changed English football and English society forever. Taking in the game at all levels and across the country, There's A Golden Sky is a full picture of the game today with all its glitz and glamour, rags and riches. From Hackney Marshes, clinging on in the shadow of the Olympic park, to the vastness of Old Trafford; from Doncaster Belles women's team to the rebirth of Cornish football in Truro; through to the modern game's relationship with Sky and the big bucks of Abramovich, Ridley takes us on a journey through the English game from grassroots to the topflight. Ian Ridley took a long hard look at the game back in the early 1990s when it was beset by problems both on and off the pitch and seen as the epitome of all that was wrong with our society. There's a Golden Sky examines just how far the game has come since those dark days, sucking in players and money from around the globe and providing fame, fortune and hours of pleasure in return. Examining the changes that have occurred over the last 20 years, Ridley seeks to discover if the soul of the game still exists. Through interviews with larger-than-life characters from around the game managers, referees, administrators, players and fans he has woven together a rich and fascinating story of football's metamorphosis from social outcast to favourite child.

In his memoir Was That Me?, a successful businessman, author, and philanthropist provides an inspirational look into the reasons why he chose the road he did in life. After being repeatedly asked the question, How did you go from not attending high school to becoming the man you are today? Bivonas answer was always the same: lots of luck and fate. But soon, that answer did not seem to be enough; and, as Bivona delved into past experiences in order to discover what truly caused him to reach his current destination, he began to identify the influences that propelled him from a childhood in a rundown neighborhood to a stint in the Air Force to his first jobs at Coney Island Amusement Park and a Wall Street stockbrokerage firm. As Bivona relays how he eventually attended Long Island University and became a certified public accountant, it is evident that self-determination and a thirst for knowledge guided him to attain success. The true story of how Michael Bivonas choices in life helped him become who he is today will inspire anyone to examine their own turning points and learn that sometimes opening the door to the unknown is what leads to true happiness.

Grandma Anna knew Luna would have a special gift. She hoped these gifts would not burden Luna the way they had burdened her life. She prayed that a new generation of acceptance from society would come to embrace Luna, so that she would not need to hide. Anna was committed to help and protect her granddaughter. Anna looked into Lunas deep, dark, almond-shaped eyes. They were wide awake and aware. They were mysterious and mystical. It was as if Luna had come with some great knowledge and wisdom. But there was something almost worrisome about her; the infant had a serious pouty face and a squinty brow. What is Luna bringing to this family? What is she bringing to this world? Only time will tell.

`So you're the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war!' These words, said to have been uttered by Abraham Lincoln, signal the celebrity of Uncle Tom's Cabin. The first American novel to become an international best-seller, Stowe's novel charts the progress from slavery to freedom of fugitives who escape the chains of American chattel slavery, and of a martyr who transcends all earthly ties. At the middle of the nineteenth-century, the names of its characters - Little Eva, Topsy, Uncle Tom - were renowned. A hundred years later, `Uncle Tom' still had meaning, but, to Blacks everywhere it had become a curse. This edition firmly locates Uncle Tom's Cabin within the context of African-American writing, the issues of race and the role of women. Its appendices include the most important contemporary African-American literary responses to the glorification of Uncle Tom's Christian resignation as well as excerpts from popular slave narratives, quoted by Stowe in her justification of the dramatization of slavery, Key to Uncles Tom's Cabin. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

8W8 - Global Space Tribes is a new way to see the world. It is written for everyone who uses the Internet, travels and is interested in any aspect of the world in the 21st century. The Golden Sky is a community comprised of 15 charismatic Internet activists from the worlds of business, finance, media, government, bio sciences, medicine, social and religious activists and environmentalists. They came together to meet on Hawaii in the fantastically beautiful mountain home, EA-RA, of the Chinese Internet billionaire, Winston Chee. There they develop a new world modeling engine, ultimately named, 8W8, which would find the invisible digital elements, i.e. the online population and digital activities, and render them visible to the world stake holding factors they define. Global Space Tribes are the Internet users The Golden Sky is able to identify with 8W8. They exist out of elements that come together in streams and interconnect with other streams around the world and can be visualized and volumized from the cockpit of the 8W8 world modeling engine, which The Golden Skyers dubbed the 8W8 Helicopter for the purpose of entering virtual rides. The pilot of the 8W8 Helicopter, albeit, an Internet user, a marketer, a traveler or political candidate or simply "You" of any background, could virtually ride over the flattened but fragmented world identifying subjectively or objectively new virtual structures, tracking the flow and concentrations of criteria such as: the presence or lack of wealth, trade, interconnectivity, beliefs, environmental conditions, peace record, happiness, and any other factors that are normally invisible for the naked eye. When BridgeMan, Winston's business partner from San Francisco, comes to EA-RA and learns about 8W8, he saw an immediate benefit for himself and the world in general. He extolled the concept as a way of making the invisibilities of the 21st century visible and of improving the state of the world...

In these two short novels, Bahaa Abdel Meguid displays the impressive range of his narrative imagination. Set in the lower-class Cairo district of Shubra, Saint Theresa tells the story of two young women, Budour and Sawsan, childhood friend who come of age following the 1967 war. Budour marries a humble tailor named Girgis, but begins an extended affair with his Jewish employer, Luka. Her friend Sawsan goes off to the university, only to fall in love with a dangerous young Marxist named Salim. From the ghost of a mad grandmother to student protests following Egypt's peace treaty with Israel, Saint Theresa presents a sweeping portrait of Egyptian society through the lives, loves, and jealousies of Sawsan, Budour, Girgis, and Luka. In Sleeping with Strangers, Abdel Meguid turns his lens on the United States - following an Egyptian, Basim, who is drawn to the 'land of opportunity,' only to end up in an American prison. His encounter with a fellow prisoner who preaches of the 'black Messiah,' and his affair with a Russian woman become entangled with Basim's family history of Egyptian official secrets and a pile of stolen documents. Masterfully told, Sleeping with Strangers evokes the conflicting pull of east and west, as Basim is torn between Cairo and Boston, alternately drawn to and repelled by his vision of America.
