Summary

First published in 1903,  H. G. Hutchinson's “Cricket” presents the reader with a fantastic, illustrated history of the game of cricket. It includes a large number of authentic pictures of players from by-gone times, offering a picture-history of the costumes of the game from the old-fashioned players who wore top hats to play, to those heroes of yesteryear clad in conspicuous braces. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the history of the game, and it is not to be missed by collectors of related literature. Contents include: “Some Points in Cricket History”, “Early Developments of the Cricketing Art”, “Batting”, “Bowling”, “Fielding”, “County Cricket”, “Amateurs and Professionals”, “Earlier Australian Cricket”, “English and Australian Cricket from 1894 to 1902”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.

    “Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women—particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as “the enemy”—will find it a real eye-opener.”—Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University 
    Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male—newly reissued. 
    What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?  
    Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood. 
    As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.

    In Architects of Ruin, New York Times bestselling author and conservative historian Peter Schweizer argues that the economic crisis was caused by liberals who used the power of government to create a subprime mortgage bubble that has ravaged the global economy. Rebutting charges that the financial collapse was caused by conservative deregulatory zeal, Schweizer, the author of Do as I Say (Not as I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy, shows that it was actually the result of “do-good capitalism.”

    Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Peter Schweizer | Conversation Starters
    
    The #1 New York Times bestselling book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is about how corruption has been more prevalent in America than ever before. The author Peter Schweizer has been in the war against corruption for many years, and he has many triumphs. In his new book Secret Empires, he tells why the American bank that opened in China was prohibited by United States laws from hiring some family members of the top politicians in China. In contrast, the Chinese bank that opened in America has the freedom to hire whomever it wants. Schweizer also discussed how the media only focused on President Donald Trump's children and their shady transactions while barely questioning the suspicious deals made by the those who are close to Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell, John Kerry, and former President Barack Obama. In different parts of the world, the children of influential and powerful political figures venture in businesses and gain high profits. They may not be good at business, but people want to gain favor from their powerful parents. This phenomenon is relatively new in the United States. However, the relatives of well-known political families may already be dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars. Peter Schweizer's book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is deeply researched and filled with astounding revelations. It identifies the public servants who are not worthy of the trust of the American people. This book provides the path towards a more accountable and transparent government.
