Tales from the Dugout (Paperback): Richard Gordon Tales from the Dugout (Paperback)
Richard Gordon 1
R242 R194 Discovery Miles 1 940 Save R48 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The dugout can be a fearsome place. When the action heats up on the pitch, emotions in the dugout boil over. Grown men lose control. The normally sane turn into irrational agitators. And every decision, no matter how minor, is hotly contested. Tales From The Dugout is a fantastically entertaining collection of incidents and memories gathered from managers, players, referees, linesmen and broadcasters, which encapsulates the unique environment of the technical area and reveals how even limited exposure to it can transform people unrecognisably. And when the red mist descends, the consequences can be almost unbelievable - and frequently hilarious. With contributions from a host of those who have been at the sharp end and lived to tell the tale, Tales From The Dugout is a unique insight into life in the technical area. There are tales from Scotland manager Gordon Strachan, Craig Brown, Pat Nevin, Kenny Clark, Pat Bonner, Scott Booth, Terry Butcher, Jimmy Calderwood, Billy Dodds, Jim Duffy, Alex McLeish, Alex Smith, Willie Young and Chick Young - amongst many others. And brilliant stories about legends of the game like Tommy Burns, Walter Smith, Martin O'Neill, Ally McCoist, Jim McLean and, of course, Sir Alex Ferguson. And it explains why that small area by the side of the pitch is no place for the faint-hearted.

R192 R155 Discovery Miles 1 550 Save R37 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

On a rainy night in Gothenburg in May 1983 twelve young Scotsmen turned the footballing world on its head. Against all the odds, those players took on the might of Spanish giants Real Madrid, and beat them convincingly. Aberdeen were winners of the European Cup Winners Cup. The manager, Alex Ferguson, would go on to become one of the greats, his team Pittodrie legends. The tale of that season, the remarkable triumph in the Ullevi Stadium and of the men who made it possible has never fully been told - until now. "Glory In Gothenburg" goes behind the scenes, deep into the inner sanctum, and through a series of in-depth interviews with all the main characters reveals what made that side and those players so special and what drove them on to achieve unparalleled success. Thirty years later, the story remains one of the most astonishing in the history of Scottish football.

Scotland '74 - A World Cup Story (Paperback): Richard Gordon Scotland '74 - A World Cup Story (Paperback)
Richard Gordon 1
R286 R226 Discovery Miles 2 260 Save R60 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

For a small footballing nation, Scotland boasts a proud record of having qualified for the World Cup Finals on eight occasions. But this fantastic record is also tarred with the glorious failure of never having reached the latter stages of the tournament. Scotland '74 is a bitter-sweet celebration of the closest Scotland has ever got - so far at least - when a team of superstars managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the dying seconds. Forty years on, it still hurts. For Scotland, the World Cup Finals in West Germany in 1974 promised much. Group 2 had a talented Brazil side with Jairzinho, Rivelino and Cesar, a hard-to-pronounce Yugoslavia line-up and group minnows Zaire. But the Scotland squad boasted household names like Billy Bremner, Kenny Dalglish, Denis Law, Peter Lorimer and Joe Jordan. How could Scotland not get to the second phase of the tournament for the very first time? Well, this is the story of how, astonishingly, it just didn't happen - even though Scotland ended up as the only unbeaten team in the tournament. As history tells us, 1974 was a massive missed opportunity for Scotland, and Richard Gordon now reveals how it all went wrong in the days before the shambles of Argentina '78 and the 3-0 humbling by Morocco in 1998. Drawing on archive reports and the memories of squad members, Scotland '74 relates the story of that big adventure, encompassing a shocking start to manager Willie Ormond's reign (a 5-0 beating by England), frequent player indiscipline, and, ultimately, the on-field heartbreak that left a nation in mourning for a lost opportunity.

This book creates a user-friendly, accessible guide to the complex area of sanctions law. In particular, the book examines how sanctions restrictions work in practice, and what the implications are for multinational businesses operating across numerous sanctions regimes. To this extent, the book considers the interrelationship between sanctions at the supranational and national levels, including the impact of the far-reaching US sanctions regime. The book's aim is not to provide an exhaustive list of sanctions regulations, but rather a framework for engaging with the relevant legislation and the main issues arising therefrom. Reinforcing this practical and commercially-focused approach, each chapter is written in a format that enables easy reading and rapid assimilation. Where there are relevant materials, be they legislative or case-law, these are outlined at the start of each chapter. In addition, the chapters dealing with challenges to sanctions designations each include a section with key principles, providing the clearest possible treatment of the subject.

Repairing British Politics - A Blueprint for Constitutional Change (Paperback, New): Richard Gordon Repairing British Politics - A Blueprint for Constitutional Change (Paperback, New)
Richard Gordon
R528 Discovery Miles 5 280 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In Britain, the constitutional crisis of 2009 - sparked by the 'expenses scandal' - led rapidly to the questioning of the country's entire political order. At the heart of the crisis lay an absence of accountability at the core of government. This book presents a major new constitutional analysis of the way the British are governed. Repairing British Politics presents some key arguments for constitutional reform, focused around a draft written Constitution underpinned by a new principle of constitutional supremacy. This would replace parliamentary sovereignty, which makes accountability more difficult. A written Constitution is not merely desirable, it is a constitutional necessity if Britain is to have true representative democracy. It would change lives for the better by defining the over-arching values which are considered inviolable. The result would be a more rational, humane, and inclusive society based on greater citizen involvement. Without a clear focus, constitutional reform will not happen. The approach taken here is essentially practical and designed to provide a focal point around which a wider debate might be centered. Written in an easily accessible style and including a glossary of essential terms, Repairing British Politics is intended as much for the general reader as for those professionally interested in law and politics. Part 1 of the book sets out a number of arguments in favor of a written Constitution, as well as the most common objections. Part 2 presents a working draft in the form of one possible model for a Constitution. Observations and explanatory notes are attached to each section of this draft Constitution. This model Constitution is intended as the first stage in a public debate, designed to provoke further discussion about the content and method of legislating into law a written Constitution. Part 3 contains the draft of the Act of Parliament that would be needed to introduce any form of constitutional change. The people are currently facing a crisis of trust in British politics. Whichever party forms the government, the questions raised in Repairing British Politics will not go away.

Doctor Crippen's murder of his wife, aided and abetted by his mistress Ethel Le Neve, ranks among one of the most notorious crimes of the twentieth century and has earned Crippen a place in the gruesome Chamber of Horrors. Here, Richard Gordon skillfully recreates the chilling atmosphere of the murder--the remains found under the cellar floor, the head still missing to this day, Crippen's transatlantic capture and arrest--and how it shook respectable society to the core. Using this infamous character as his case study, Gordon also reveals the conflicting suavity and savagery of the Edwardian age.

R4,202 Discovery Miles 42 020 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

EU law applies in a significant range of areas where public bodies take decisions that are susceptible to judicial review and it is an increasingly important element of the treatment of powers and remedies in public law. EU Law in Judicial Review is the only text of its kind to focus specifically on the relationship, both substantive and procedural, between EU law and UK domestic judicial review. This new edition provides comprehensive guidance to practitioners on how to act effectively when encountering an EU dimension in the context of judicial review, and is updated to include all the latest developments in this area. Its three-part structure divides the subject into the distinct areas of procedure, principle, and practice and displays them in a clear and functional layout, allowing for ease of use and reference. Part One takes as its starting point the UK domestic judicial review procedures, grounds, and remedies, and analyses them from an EU standpoint. Part Two turns to the fundamental rights and principles of law which underpin EU law. Finally, in Part Three, the book considers in detail the key areas in which judicial review and EU law interact, including competition law, state aid, public procurement, and the free movement of goods, services, and persons. The new edition has been extensively revised to incorporate significant legal developments, in particular decisions since the Treaty of Lisbon entered into force on 1 December 2009.

All coordination between cells, organs, and organisms depends on successful biocommunicative processes. There are abundant cases of communication in the biological world, both within (intraspecific) and between (interspecific) single-cell and multicellular microorganisms and higher animal forms.Split into two parts, this book first looks at the history, development and progress within the field of biocommunication. The second part presents real-life case studies and investigation into examples of biocommunication in the biological world. Among the organisms covered are bacteria, fungi, plants, terrestrial and marine animals, including bonobos, chimpanzees and dolphins, as well as a new theory of communication between parts in developing embryos (cybernetic embryos). Contributions from international experts in the field provide up-to-date research and results, while in depth analysis expands on these findings to pave the way for future discoveries. As the first comprehensive review of its kind, it is perfect for undergraduates, graduates, professionals and researchers in the field of life sciences.

The greatest mystery of life is how a single fertilized egg develops into a fully functioning, sometimes conscious multicellular organism. Embryogenesis Explained offers a new theory of how embryos build themselves, and combines simple physics with the most recent biochemical and genetic breakthroughs, based on the authors' prediction and then discovery of differentiation waves. They explain their ideas in a form accessible to the lay person and a broad spectrum of scientists and engineers. The diverse subjects of development, genetics and evolution, and their physics, are brought together to explain this major, previously unanswered scientific question of our time.As a follow up on The Hierarchical Genome, this book is a shorter but conceptually expanded work for the reader who is interested in science. It is useful as a starting point for the curious layman or the scientist or professional encountering the problem of embryogenesis without the formal biology background. There is also material useful for the seasoned biologist caught up in the new rush of information about the role of mechanics in developmental biology and cellular level mechanics in medicine.
