Nasser Hussain was acclaimed as England's best cricket captain since Mike Brearley.

With coach Duncan Fletcher he put some steel into the side; they became a difficult team to beat. Hussain wore his heart on his sleeve: railing against complacency, defying critics of his place in the batting line-up and making a principled stand at the last World Cup when the ECB seemed incapable of it. Expect passion, integrity, insight and candour in his eagerly awaited autobiography.

Book Summary :

The last five years have witnessed the birth of a vibrant new group of young scholars who are writing about queer law, politics, and policy--topics which are no longer treated as of interest only to lesbians and gay men, but which now garner the attention of political theorists of all stripes. Playing With Fire--the first scholarly collection on queer politics by US political theorists--opens the intersection of lesbian and gay studies and political theory to a wide audience. It covers a wide range of issues, including: the theory of queer identities; the contrasts among ethnic, racial, and sexual identities; the debate between liberals and communitarians; the right to privacy; and the meaning of equal citizenship.

Book Summary :

"This publication offers the first comprehensive overview of Neoclassical modeling in the years from 1740 to 1840. The catalogue, numbering 142 objects, analyzes modeling at every stage, from the brusque preliminary impulse of the artist to the highly finished statuettes that were regarded as works of art in their own right. Many of the greatest names are represented here: from France, Bouchardon, Pigalle, Pajou, Houdon, Roland, Clodion, Stouf, and Chinard; from Germany, Dannecker and Schadow; from Italy, Canova and Pacetti; from Sweden, the magnificent Sergel. Some artists are examined in considerable depth, with as many as nine works. Lesser-known talents who merit greater attention and emerge heroically are the Swiss Sonnenschein and the Russians Kozlovsky and Martos." "The sections of the catalogue, each preceded by an introductory essay, examine the sculptors' techniques and training and explore prominent themes, such as terracotta's role in the statuary of Great Men and in tomb sculpture, depictions of Arcadia and the loves of the gods, and scenes from the Iliad and Ovid's Metamorphoses. Special attention is paid to the ancient visual and literary sources that motivated these generations of discerning and erudite sculptors. Short biographies of all of the artists are included."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

The population is bursting. High-tech businesses are moving in. And the citizens are getting cantankerous.A proposal to reorganize the fire department quickly escalates beyond a dry policy debate.

A beautiful nurse. A lethal injection. A gruesomely charred corpse. Nothing could have shocked the sleepy community of Morgantown, West Virginia, more than the lurid details that surfaced after a house fire claimed the life of Shelly Michael's husband Jimmy. Local authorities suspected possible arson. Then they discovered that Jimmy had been dead before the fire even started—paralyzed by a fatal dose of muscle relaxant... Did Shelly Michael, a respected nurse and mother, kill her second husband and torch her own home? Were the rumors true that she'd had an affair with her husband's employee only two weeks before the murder? Or did she kill Jimmy simply for the insurance money?

Book Summary :

Playing With Fire is a unique book that explores current issues surrounding the epidemic of smoking among women. This is an extremely important topic today because for the first time in our history, young women are more likely than men to become smokers. Cancer of the lung is now one of the major causes of cancer deaths among women, and women now account for more than half the new cases of lung cancer each year. The future looks bleak, for it is predicted by the World Health Organization that deaths from lung cancer among women will double over the next twenty years. This is in addition to the loss optimum health due to smoking. Playing With Fire helps to explain the reasons for the current pattern of smoking among women. It is the hypothesis of this book that while the lives of women have changed dramatically over the past quarter-century, the advances that women have made economically and socially have not made our world so much a better place, as a more stressful one. New roles and responsibilities are layered on top of the older, more traditional ones and consequently women are suffering the effects of burnout as never before. Cigarette smoking is an effective way of self-medicating to alleviate the pain and stress of our daily lives. Playing With Fire is unique in that it takes a compassionate view of women who smoke and challenges them to explore deeper issues in their lives, something vitally important in long-term smoking cessation. The book validates women's experiences and provides them with a context for why they feel the way they do, which gives meaning to why they smoke. While supporting women in their personal choices--to smoke or not to smoke--it encourages them to seriously consider the risks involved and to consider ways of improving their situation and self-care practices. The beauty of Playing With Fire is that it does not preach or scold, but rather takes readers on a journey of self-discovery that will help women to understand their lives and motives for smoking, as well as the possibility of personal change and power. It is a book that explores the creation of a better world through the individual's acceptance of and love for the self and the adoption of healthy self-care practices.

From Sparking the Fire author Kate Meader comes the second novel in Hot in Chicago, a brand-new, sizzling series that follows a group of firefighting foster siblings and their blazing hot love interests! As the only female firefighter at Engine Co. 6, Alexandra Dempsey gets it from all sides: the male coworkers who think she can’t do the job, the wives and girlfriends who see her as a threat to their firefighter men, and her overprotective foster brothers who want to shelter their baby sister at all costs. So when she single-handedly saves the life of Eli Cooper, Chicago’s devastatingly handsome mayor, she assumes the respect she’s longed for will finally come her way. But it seems Mr. Mayor has other ideas… Eli Cooper’s mayoral ratings are plummeting, his chances at reelection dead in the water.

Riding the wave of their feel-good story might prop up Eli’s flagging political fortunes, but the sizzling attraction between them can go nowhere; he’s her boss, and there are rules that must be obeyed. But you know what they say about rules: they’re made to be broken…
