BONUS: This edition contains a reader's guide.<br /><br /> The extraordinary tale of a refugee youth soccer team and the transformation of a small American town<br /> <br /> Clarkston, Georgia, was a typical Southern town until it was designated a refugee settlement center in the 1990s, becoming the first American home for scores of families in flight from the world’s war zones—from Liberia and Sudan to Iraq and Afghanistan. Suddenly Clarkston’s streets were filled with women wearing the hijab, the smells of cumin and curry, and kids of all colors playing soccer in any open space they could find. The town also became home to Luma Mufleh, an American-educated Jordanian woman who founded a youth soccer team to unify Clarkston’ s refugee children and keep them off the streets. These kids named themselves the Fugees.<br /> <br /> Set against the backdrop of an American town that without its consent had become a vast social experiment, Outcasts United follows a pivotal season in the life of the Fugees and their charismatic coach. Warren St. John documents the lives of a diverse group of young people as they miraculously coalesce into a band of brothers, while also drawing a fascinating portrait of a fading American town struggling to accommodate its new arrivals. At the center of the story is fiery Coach Luma, who relentlessly drives her players to success on the soccer field while holding together their lives—and the lives of their families—in the face of a series of daunting challenges.<br /> <br /> This fast-paced chronicle of a single season is a complex and inspiring tale of a small town becoming a global community—and an account of the ingenious and complicated ways we create a home in a changing world.

Protestant v Catholic, unionist v nationalist, east versus west, their team against my team. This is the story of Northern Irish football and so much more besides: the tournaments, the near misses, the unsung heroes and unlikely tales of triumph amid adversity.<br /><br />Benjamin Roberts casts his eye over the last 140 years of football in Belfast, Derry and beyond in the first wide ranging look at the game in this part of the world. George Best, David Healy, Peter Doherty and all the heroes throughout the eras are traced back to their roots ‘back home’ as Roberts shines a light on the human dimension to some of Ulster’s most famous ninety minute sons.<br /><br />Exploring sectarianism, shipbuilding or sliding tackles, Roberts has finally provided a definitive account of the the beautiful game in this often troubled land.<br /><br />'[A] thoroughly researched history, peppered with anecdotes… a book which gets that the relationship between football and politics is nowhere more keen than in the Northern Irish game.' - Tim Marshall, Author of ‘Dirty Northern Bastards - A History of Britain’s Football Chants'<br /><br />'Ben has put together the finest tapestry of history associated with Northern Ireland in recent times...' - Paul Breen, The Football Pink<br /><br />'Anyone interested in Irish football, North or South, should read this. Ethnic rivalry, religious prejudice and recurring violence - the Beautiful Game as played out against the background of bitterly divided Northern Ireland' - Paddy Agnew, Author of Forza Italia, Irish Times in Rome Correspondent, writer for World Soccer

When we think of martial arts, we think of self defense, but for the true practitioner it is so much more than that. It is a mindset, a form of mental discipline that enables the warrior to face any challenge with grace and strength. In The Warrior Mind, Jim Pritchard, a disciple of legendary Ninjitsu and Taijitsu masters, reveals how we can adopt this mindset whether or not we practice the physical components of the martial arts. Pritchard describes six mental principles: <br />* Attentive curiosity: slow down, observe calmly <br />* Undulation: move side-to-side to build strength <br />* Clear intent: know when and how to act <br />* Grappling: engage the issue or opponent with confidence <br />* Rolling waves: demonstrate persistence and the will to triumph <br />* Whirlwind: when necessary, unleash an all-out onslaught <br />Using colorful anecdotes, insightful examples, and inspiring stories, Pritchard shows how these six principles will help readers maintain focus and balance -- no matter what obstacles await them.

THE TRADE! Over 25 years later, in the annals of professional hockey, no incident has resulted in such furor, such angst among Canadians as did the decision by team owner Peter Pocklington to trade Edmonton Oiler Wayne Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings. This book consists of seven chapters as they were originally published in Peter Pocklington's biography "I'd Trade Him Again: on Gretzky, Politics and the Pursuit of the Perfect Deal." These select chapters tell the fascinating story of the flamboyant entrepreneur's tenure of the Edmonton Oilers, from its origins as a WHA team to its heights as an NHL powerhouse.
