Summary

For this unique gift title, the history of the Premier League is told through the words and quotations of its players, managers, their contemporaries and the media. This is the English Premier League in the words of the people who helped shape it into the world's most exciting league competition. 
  
From Alan Hansen's infamous “You can't win anything with kids” and Roy Keane's “prawn sandwich” rant to Kevin Keegan's “I will love it if we beat them…” meltdown and Sir Alex Ferguson's famous “[It's] squeaky bum time”, this beautifully packaged book captures the highs and lows as well the fun and theatre of 24 seasons of the Premier League. 
  
Branded by the National Football Museum, the world's leading football museum, the oral history approach makes for a fun and accessible book, telling the story of all of the important Premier League moments – as well as the outcome of each of the seasons – in a unique and absorbing way.

    Lord of the Flies, written by Nobel Prize-winner William Golding, is a story about a group of boys stranded on a deserted island, who must establish order amongst themselves. Shortly after crashing onto a deserted island, a group of  pre-adolescent boys form a community, electing Ralph to be their leader. As his first act, Ralph proclaims the boys will have fun and keep the signal fire going. All is well until thirst for power draws one boy to form his own tribe of "savages". Armed with the fear of a fictitious beast, this group of boys descend into further savagery with sacrifice and death. The story reaches its climax as the beast is revealed to be within each boy's heart, and Ralph is forced to flee for his survival.

    While supervising a small group of interns at a major New York medical center, Dr. Robert Marion asked three of them to keep a careful diary over the course of a year. Andy, Mark, and Amy vividly describe their real-life lessons in treating very sick children; confronting child abuse and the awful human impact of the AIDS epidemic; skirting the indifference of the hospital bureaucracy; and overcoming their own fears, insecurities, and constant fatigue. Their stories are harrowing and often funny; their personal triumph is unforgettable. 
    This updated edition of The Intern Blues includes a new preface from the author discussing the status of medical training in America today and a new afterword updating the reader on the lives of the three young interns who first shared their stories with readers more than a decade ago.

    World History - A Concise...

    This book provides a brief history of the world, focusing on major civilizations while employing a few strong interpretive themes. It could be used as a world history text for students and the ordinary public who are sometimes intimidated or overwhelmed by the detailed content of available history textbooks, or as a complementary book for world history classes. It could also benefit educated and intellectually inclined people by opening a stimulating topic of discussion. Upper division or graduate courses in historiography or philosophy of history might benefit from it as a review of world history, but also in the study of historiography as well. Ultimately, the book is didactic in nature and its goal is to teach history to students of history. In general, it presents an optimistic, if cautious, and realistic view of history in a coherent and meaningful narrative. It is hoped that through the understanding of history a new global ethic can ideally be envisioned and thereby achieved.
     
    The main underlying premise in this book is that successful civilizations—ones providing safety, prosperity, and room for individual growth and creativity—have from ancient times to the present flourished when responding creatively to the major challenges of their time and their environment. Second, many successful civilizations appear to have a life span of about two hundred years or some multiple of that number (e.g., the Greek’s Golden Age, the Romans, the Persians, the Chinese Han Dynasty). This number might be a consequence of the life span of individual human beings, about thirty years, with two hundred years constituting about six generations. These six generations might be divided into two first generations (father and son) of visionaries, two second generations of benefactors, and then two generations of critics. This hypothesis assumes the father-son relationship to be more direct, stronger, and more real than ideal. Third, throughout the dialectical process and cycles of integration and disintegration (or centralization and decentralization), societies tend to move toward expansion of greater human intellectual and political unity.
     
    About the author: 
     
    Born in Tehran, Iran, Ali Parsa came to the US to study architecture, biochemistry, and philosophy. He then received a double masters at UCLA in history and Islamic/religious studies, followed by a Ph.D. in history. He has been teaching world history, comparative religions, humanities, architecture, philosophy of religion, and gender and religion at universities and colleges in California since 1998.
     
    As a young man, Parsa returned to Iran in 1979 to join the revolution against the shah, and though he had to escape back to the US after Khomeini came to power, he continued his political activities against the Iranian regime to promote religious freedom, equality, and women’s rights.
     
    Dr. Parsa seeks ways for people to appreciate different points of view that go beyond political correctness. To that end, he calls for a paradigm shift to encompass new sciences—quantum, relativity, new cosmology—and a corresponding reinterpretation of human history.
     
    His last book, The Mind of the Historian: Causation on Philosophy of History, which reveals unavoidable biases of historians, is used in graduate-level classes in historiography.
     
    Dr. Parsa lives in Southern California with his wife and three children.

    We all have a story.
     
    This is a journal for you to write down all that matters to you. My hope is that through the quotes taken from my books and the short prompts, you will see all the beauty, triumph, love, and uniqueness you hold and may be inspired to uncover and pursue endeavors and treasures that may have been hidden in your heart.
     
    The world needs your story. The world needs you.
     
    I believe all our stories matter, and I believe that a key way to find the story is to ask yourself specific questions. My hope is that this journal will be filled with your stories. Introducing each section, you will read quotes from my books, but that’s where my input ends and yours begins. You’ll get to know my stories a little bit in this journal, but these pages aren’t about me. They’re about YOU!
     
    This book is your creative space.
