'A powerful and moving book - it's quite a battle he has faced' Nick Robinson, BBC Radio 4 Today Programme 'It really is an interesting read' Dan Walker, BBC Breakfast *INCLUDES A FOREWORD BY SIR ALEX FERGUSON* __________ 'I'm not sure whether life prepared me for football, or football prepared me for life.' Misconceptions have stalked Andy Cole like a hatchet-man defender determined to cut him down to size. Now, in his candid and inspirational autobiography, Cole finally puts his side of the story. In the world of modern-day football, Andy Cole's reserved demeanour, combined with belief in his own ability, was often interpreted as an attitude problem that overshadowed his natural aptitude for goalscoring. Throughout his glittering career, he scored 187 Premier League goals, won 5 Premier League titles and 1 Champions League trophy. Now, two decades on from United's historic Treble, he not only gives the inside track on Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Dwight Yorke and other members of that illustrious side, but also opens up about his fractious relationship with Teddy Sheringham and reveals the prejudices and preconceptions he had to contend with in his twenty years in the game. Compelling in its honesty and frankness, Fast Forward is the thought-provoking story of one man's determination to succeed and survive against all the odds.

British Rail operated thousands of different shunt engines during its time, many being built by private companies and others by BR themselves. Sadly, most have now been withdrawn; however, a large number have been saved for posterity by many different preservation groups and sites. Here, Andrew Cole shows many of these saved shunters, capturing them in varying states from abandoned wrecks through to gleaming masterpieces. Many are still invaluable at the sites at which they are based. The book covers classes 01 to 14 and shows them in a wide variety of different liveries and at a wide variety of locations around the country. It also gives a brief outline of how the locomotives ended up in preservation. It is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the organisations responsible for the upkeep and restoration of these valuable shunt engines, allowing future generations to enjoy and appreciate them.

In March 2020 scientists reported that it was possible to translate thoughts into words and sentences, in real time. Or more correctly, to translate the brain activity used in speech into words, sentences and text, then into speech. This is the first time such a clear revelation that this landmark technology exists and openly revealed in the public arena. Other exciting research continues into this technology including Mind to Machine and Mind to Mind communication, with some major companies investing heavily in this area. All these facts have been widely reported in the media. However, the author holds that such technologies have been in existence for many years and Memories of a Synchronistic Gap Year reveals one such example. It is a true story of a field trial that took place during the years of 2005 and 2006. Then the technology may have been referred to as Mind Reading or Remote Telepathy but nevertheless it allowed thoughts to be intercepted, interpreted and understood by others. First written in 2008 but not published for fear of not being believed, it is now published, unaltered and hoped that the reader will understand the book for what it is, an early example of the work, research and testing being done in the field of thought translation. This would of course also be confirmed by the release of any classified documents relating to this trial. It is a story that spans the globe, Europe, India and Australia and has a strong spiritual element which allows the writer some comfort at the most distressing and traumatic times. Finally, it offers an insight into how this technology could have been used, rather than for the human good, which is now its likely end purpose.

Fast Forward is a thought-provoking and gripping autobiography about Andrew Cole’s determination to succeed against all the odds.

Misconceptions have stalked Andrew Cole like a hatchet-man defender determined to cut him down to size. In the world of modern-day football, his reserved demeanour was often interpreted as surly intransigence. Alongside an aptitude for goalscoring, it was widely believed, ran an attitude problem. In Fast Forward, a candid and inspirational autobiography, Cole finally puts his side of the story. The son of a Windrush-generation Jamaican miner from a humble background in Nottingham, he was viewed as a one-man awkward squad by George Graham and Jimmy Hill before Kevin Keegan identified him as the man to bring goals to Newcastle. However, only when Alex Ferguson, his ‘second father’, took him to Manchester United did Cole begin to belie his image, amassing goals, medals and England caps. Two decades on from United’s historic Treble, he reveals the inside track on Eric Cantona and David Beckham, Roy Keane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer .

After a career spent challenging assumptions and adversity, he had to summon fresh reserves of resilience to battle illness and depression.

R1,715 Discovery Miles 17 150 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Piers Plowman has long been considered one of the greatest poems of medieval England. Current scholarship on this alliterative masterpiece looks very different from that available even a decade ago. New information about the manuscripts of the poem, new historical discoveries, and new investigations of its literary, cultural and theoretical scope have fundamentally altered the very meaning of Langland's art. This Companion thus critically surveys traditional scholarship, with the aim of recuperating its best insights, and it ventures forth into newer areas of inquiry attuned to questions of social setting, institutional context, intellectual and literary history, theory, and the revitalized fields of codicology and paleography. By proceeding through chapters that offer cumulatively wider views as well as stand-alone analyses of topics most crucial to understanding Piers Plowman, this Companion gives serious students and seasoned scholars alike up-to-date knowledge of this intricate and beautiful poem.

In the early 1990s, British Rail introduced the 182-strong Class 158 fleet, followed by the 22-strong Class 159s. These units heralded a new era in long-distance travel at the time, replacing 1950s-designed locomotive-hauled coaches on long secondary and inter-city routes With all 204 units still in service today, this title aims to examine their varied operations, from Scotland to the south-west, from Wales to East Anglia, where they can still be found all across our rail network.

The Electrostar is a collective name given to the hugely successful class of EMUs produced by Bombardier at its Derby factory. There have been seven different classes that come under the Electrostar umbrella, all working mainly in the south-east of the country. The first unit was delivered in 1999 to replace the Class 302 units on the London, Tilbury & Southend route. Over the following eighteen years, a total of 480 sets were produced for a variety of operators. The different classes are all configured to their specific routes, with most making up a standard four-car train, although some of the later Class 377 units were delivered as five-car train. The Class 376 units are high-density units, and were the only members of the Electrostar family delivered without gangway doors on the front. The fleets were introduced to eradicate the earlier slam-door stock that was in use widely in the south-east at the time. Some classes are also fitted out for AC operation, and can be seen working as far north as Peterborough on the East Coast Main Line, and also Milton Keynes on the West Coast Main Line. The design was also used on an export order, with twenty-four sets being used by Gautrain in South Africa. Today the whole fleet is still in use, and this book aims to show the different classes in their everyday use.

Literature and Heresy in the Age of Chaucer (Paperback): Andrew Cole Literature and Heresy in the Age of Chaucer (Paperback)
Andrew Cole
R816 Discovery Miles 8 160 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

After the late fourteenth century, English literature was fundamentally shaped by the heresy of John Wyclif and his followers. This 2008 study demonstrates how Geoffrey Chaucer, William Langland, John Clanvowe, Margery Kempe, Thomas Hoccleve and John Lydgate, far from eschewing Wycliffism out of fear of censorship or partisan distaste, viewed Wycliffite ideas as a distinctly new intellectual resource. Andrew Cole offers a complete historical account of the first official condemnation of Wycliffism the Blackfriars council of 1382 - and the fullest study of 'lollardy' as a social and literary construct. Drawing on literary criticism, history, theology and law, he presents not only a fresh perspective on late medieval literature, but also an invaluable rethinking of the Wycliffite heresy. Literature and Heresy restores Wycliffism to its proper place as the most significant context for late medieval English writing, and thus for the origins of English literary history.

The Birth of Theory (Paperback): Andrew Cole The Birth of Theory (Paperback)
Andrew Cole
R844 Discovery Miles 8 440 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Modern theory needs a history lesson. Neither Marx nor Nietzsche first gave us theory - Hegel did. To support this contention, Andrew Cole's The Birth of Theory presents a refreshingly clear and lively account of the origins and legacy of Hegel's dialectic as theory. Cole explains how Hegel boldly broke from modern philosophy when he adopted medieval dialectical habits of thought to fashion his own dialectic. While his contemporaries rejected premodern dialectic as outdated dogma, Hegel embraced both its emphasis on language as thought and its fascination with the categories of identity and difference, creating what we now recognize as theory, distinct from systematic philosophy. Hegel also used this dialectic to expose the persistent archaism of modern life itself, Cole shows, establishing a method of social analysis that has influenced everyone from Marx and the nineteenth-century Hegelians, to Nietzsche and Bakhtin, all the way to Deleuze and Jameson. By uncovering these theoretical filiations across time, The Birth of Theory will not only change the way we read Hegel, but also the way we think about the histories of theory. With chapters that powerfully reanimate the overly familiar topics of ideology, commodity fetishism, and political economy, along with a groundbreaking reinterpretation of Hegel's famous master/slave dialectic, The Birth of Theory places the disciplines of philosophy, literature, and history in conversation with one another in an unprecedented way.

Since their introduction in 1984, the Class 150 series of 'Sprinter' diesel multiple units have plied their trade across the UK - from Cornwall to Scotland and many places in between - replacing large numbers of aging 1950s-built rolling stock. The backbone of many regional and rural services in the UK, the 'Sprinters' are a common sight on the modern railway network. Lifelong railway enthusiast and photographer Andrew Cole takes a look at the 135-strong fleet and the routes they operate in a series of rare and unpublished images, covering a broad geographical area.

With construction beginning in 1997, the Turbostar family of diesel multiple units are by far the most numerous design of such units introduced to the privatised railway. Over the next fourteen years, over a hundred units belonging to this family have been built at the Derby Litchurch Lane works of Adtranz/Bombardier Transportation to operators across the country. They have become a recognisable sight across the network, sharing many design similarities with the Electrostar family of electric multiple units. Today they can be seen from the north of Scotland to the south coast, conveying passengers on many local and long-distance services. This book takes a look at the varied services undertaken by Turbostars, covering both past and present operators.

Subject Lessons - Hegel, Lacan, and the Future of Materialism (Hardcover): Russell Sbriglia, Slavoj Zizek Subject Lessons - Hegel, Lacan, and the Future of Materialism (Hardcover)

R2,258 Discovery Miles 22 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Responding to the ongoing "objectal turn" throughout contemporary humanities and social sciences, the eleven essays in Subject Lessons present a sustained case for the continued importance-indeed, the indispensability-of the category of the subject for the future of materialist thought. Various neovitalist materialisms and realisms currently en vogue across a number of academic disciplines (from New Materialism and actor-network theory to speculative realism and object-oriented ontology) advocate a flat, horizontal ontology that renders the subject just another object amid a "democracy of objects." By contrast, the dialectical materialism presented throughout Subject Lessons maintains that subjectivity is crucial to grasping matter's "vibrancy" and continual "becoming" in the first place. Approaching matters through the frame of Hegel and Lacan, the contributors to this volume-many of whom stand at the forefront of contemporary Hegel and Lacan scholarship-agree with neovitalist thinkers that material reality is ontologically incomplete, in a state of perpetual becoming, yet they do so with one crucial difference: they maintain that this is the case not in spite of but rather because of the subject. Incorporating elements of philosophy, psychoanalysis, and literary and cultural studies, Subject Lessons contests the movement to dismiss the subject, arguing that there can be no truly robust materialism without accounting for the little piece of the Real that is the subject.

R389 R323 Discovery Miles 3 230 Save R66 (17%) Ships in 10 - 20 working days

British Rail introduced thirty-one Class 91 locomotives from 1989 onwards. They were built at Crewe Works for use on passenger services on the East Coast Main Line out of London King's Cross. They were designed with a sleek cab at one end, while the other was fitted with a blunt cab, as it was envisaged that they would work parcels and freight traffic overnight, thus not requiring the high-speed running. With their maximum speed of 140 mph/225 km/h, they became known as the InterCity 225s and No. 91110 currently holds the speed record for a British locomotive. The end is now in sight for this class of locomotive on the East Coast, with the introduction of the Virgin Trains Class 800 Azuma units, but hopefully a use can be found for these distinctive looking and sounding electric locomotives. The Class 91s have served the East Coast for nearly thirty years, and this book looks at their careers from the start. There have been a couple of high-profile accidents and incidents involving the class, but all are still in use today. They have had many different operators, and this book sets out to chart the different liveries, and also one-off special liveries carried by the class.

The Class 43 locos were first constructed from 1975 onwards at Crewe Works. At the time, the design was revolutionary, and it would go on to become the most iconic of British Rail locomotives. Their sleek design would become world famous and, when introduced, they were known as the High Speed Train, or HST, due to their top speed of 125 mph. 197 power cars were built, with the last into traffic in 1982. When built they were all fitted with the distinctive Paxman Valenta engine, but they have all been replaced with either Paxman VP185, or MTU engines. They have operated over all the former British Rail regions, although they were scarce on the Southern. The main operators currently are Great Western, East Midlands Trains, Virgin Trains East Coast, Grand Central and Cross Country Trains. The Great Western and East Coast trains already have their replacements on order, and it remains to be seen how long they will remain in service. Just three power cars have been scrapped, and only then following high-profile accidents; a testament to how well the design would stand the test of time. Class 43 Locomotives pays tribute to this iconic class in a comprehensive series of photographs alongside detailed captions and annotation.

Who were the Lollards? What did Lollards believe? What can the manuscript record of Lollard works teach us about the textual dissemination of Lollard beliefs and the audience for Lollard writings? What did Lollards have in common with other reformist or dissident thinkers in late medieval England, and how were their views distinctive? These questions have been fundamental to the modern study of Lollardy (also known as Wycliffism). The essays in this book reveal their broader implications for the study of English literature and history through a series of closely focused studies that demonstrate the wide-ranging influence of Lollard writings and ideas on later medieval English culture. Introductions to previous scholarship, and an extensive Bibliography of printed resources for the study of Wyclif and Wycliffites, provide an entry to scholarship for those new to the field.

The Class 08/09 was to become the main diesel shunter of the British Railways era. Just over a thousand of the two classes were built from 1952 onwards at five different British Rail workshops over a ten-year period. Just about every corner of the UK would be home to one or more of these shunting locomotives. They were ideal for yard and depot shunting, and also acted as station pilots at nearly every major station. The main difference between the two classes was that the Class 09 had a different maximum speed, and most were also fitted with extra air pipes to work with Southern Region EMUs. With the constriction of UK freight workings, a lot of yards were taken out of use, and the trip workings that these locomotives performed soon ceased. With the advent of multiple unit trains, the need for them as station pilots also ceased. A large majority of the two classes have been withdrawn and scrapped, but a fair number still survive, doing what they were built for over fifty years ago. A large number have also entered preservation, and the classes have carried a multitude of different liveries over the years.
