              Who Are Ya?: 92 Football Clubs - and Why You Shouldn't Support Them (Hardback)

              Written by comedian and former Match of the Day presenter Kevin Day, Who Are Ya? is a mix of comic observation, (friendly) fan rivalry and quirky anecdote, featuring brilliant celebrity contributions. During his time as a broadcaster, Kevin Day has spoken to thousands of football... fans. He has interviewed countless players and managers from across the generations, and he has spent thousands of hours crossing the country on trains, planes, automobiles and coaches, watching football at all levels. This book is the result of that: a tale of being chased down a railway line at Cardiff, an account of interviewing George Best, a story of an 80-year-old lady getting her first Hull City tattoo - quite simply, a tale of football. Who Are Ya? is partly autobiographical and mildly polemical, but mostly it is laugh-out-loud funny. It's also a snapshot of modern football, exploring all 92 English football league clubs. For instance, the chapter on Manchester City will include an angry and bemused look at modern football finances; Chelsea will include a discussion on foreign owners; Coventry, a hymn to the author's love of football kits; Walsall, a diversion into club nicknames (the Saddlers, since you ask); Spurs will lead to Gary Lineker and the art of TV punditry; and Crystal Palace will lead to superstitions, romance and being padlocked into a train with no toilet on the way to Wrexham. Not only that but there will also be exclusive contributions from celebrity football fans, ex-players and managers, and current chairmen of football clubs. The book will conclude that while there are fan rivalries, football unites more than it divides.

              The three-thousand-year-old rock-cut temples at Abu Simbel and the story of their rescue from the rising waters of Lake Nasser in the 1960s are almost as familiar worldwide as the tale of the gold funerary mask and brief life of the boy king Tutankhamun. Yet although they are amo...ng the most celebrated, visited, and photographed archaeological sites in the world, the two temples are among the least understood by the visitor. In this lucidly written, beautifully illustrated guide, Nigel Fletcher-Jones explains the main features of both temples, discusses what they teach us about ancient Egypt during the reign of Rameses II (1265-1200 BC), and illustrates which gods and goddesses were worshipped here. With over 80 new photographs, drawings, and diagrams, and packed with fascinating insights, The Brief Guide to Abu Simbel is an indispensable companion and souvenir to one of the world's great archaeological sites.

              People, many of whom have already embarked upon that great adventure of genealogical research, and who have encountered their ancestors in the archives and uncovered family secrets, are now turning to the secrets contained within the four walls of their homes and in doing so find...ing a direct link to earlier generations. And it is ordinary homes, not grand public buildings or the mansions of the rich that have all the best stories. As with the television series, A House Through Time offers readers not only the tools to explore the histories of their own homes, but also a vividly readable history of the British city, the forces of industry, disease, mass transportation, crime and class. The rises and falls, the shifts in the fortunes of neighbourhoods and whole cities are here, tracing the often surprising journey one single house can take from elegant dwelling in a fashionable district to a tenement for society's rejects. Packed with remarkable human stories, it is a phenomenal insight into living history, a history we can see every day on the streets where we live. And it reminds us that it is at home that we are truly ourselves. It is there that the honest face of life can be seen. At home, behind closed doors and drawn curtains, we live out our inner lives and family lives.

But a terrorist guru, the Sword of Islam, has other... ideas.

              Language and Strategic Inference is Prashant Parikh's 1987 doctoral dissertation submitted to Stanford University. It combines two powerful mathematical frameworks-situation theory and game theory-and applies them to problems in philosophical semantics of interest to philosophers..., linguists, computer scientists, and cognitive scientists. It contains in embryonic form many of the ideas that appear in the author's later work, and that have in part led to a new field of research and to a growing number of researchers interested in applying these frameworks to problems of communication and meaning.
