Where Have All the Irish Gone? The Sad Demise of Ireland's Once Relevant Footballers is the hard-hitting, investigative story of how and why it has gone so wrong for Irish footballers at the elite level of the English game since the inception of the Premier League. Before this era, players from the Emerald Isle would often cross the Irish Sea to provide the backbone of the great Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United sides, earning rave reviews across Europe for their skill and value to their respective clubs. They were the kings of the English game, and that was reflected in the success of the Irish national team. But it all came crashing down, eventually leading to Irish players having little more than bit-part roles at the business end of the English game. Where Have All the Irish Gone? carefully maps the grave decline and explains why the demise of Irish players has plunged to a new low--leaving their followers to wonder if they can ever return to the pinnacle in the most popular football league in the world.
Spike Milligan's legendary war memoirs are a hilarious and subversive first-hand account of the Second World War, as well as a fascinating portrait of the formative years of this towering comic genius, most famous as writer and star of The Goon Show. They have sold over 4.5 million copies since they first appeared. 'The most irreverent, hilarious book about the war that I have ever read' Sunday Express 'Brilliant verbal pyrotechnics, throwaway lines and marvelous anecdotes' Daily Mail 'Desperately funny, vivid, vulgar' Sunday Times Back to those haunting days in Italy in 1944, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, with lava running in great red rivulets down the slope towards us, and Jock taking a drag on his cigarette and saying, 'I think we've got grounds for a rent rebate.' The fifth volume of Spike Milligan's unsurpassed account of life as a Bombardier in World War Two sees our hero dispatched from the front line to psychiatric hospital and from there to a rehabilitation camp. Considered loony (and 'unfit to be killed in combat by either side'), he becomes embroiled in his own private battle with melancholy. But it is music, wit and a little help from his friends - including one Gunner Harry Secombe - that help carry him through to his first stage appearances ... 'That absolutely glorious way of looking at things differently. A great man' Stephen Fry 'Milligan is the Great God to all of us' John Cleese 'The Godfather of Alternative Comedy' Eddie Izzard 'Manifestly a genius, a comic surrealist genius and had no equal' Terry Wogan 'A totally original comedy writer' Michael Palin 'Close in stature to Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear in his command of the profound art of nonsense' Guardian Spike Milligan was one of the greatest and most influential comedians of the twentieth century. Born in India in 1918, he served in the Royal Artillery during WWII in North Africa and Italy. At the end of the war, he forged a career as a jazz musician, sketch-show writer and performer, before joining forces with Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe to form the legendary Goon Show. Until his death in 2002, he had success as on stage and screen and as the author of over eighty books of fiction, memoir, poetry, plays, cartoons and children's stories.

Where Have All the Flowers Gone tells the tale of war soldiering and coming home—the story of the Vietnam War as seen by one soldier. Being a soldier in Vietnam left an indelible impression on John Guinane. A Vietnam Vet, John visited a hospital on June 4, 2012, for a checkup. A male nurse was taking his blood. He was about forty years old, a college graduate who had majored in Journalism. He asked John what he was doing with his life. John told him he was writing a book about Vietnam and had just finished a chapter on the My Lai Massacre. The young man had never heard of the My Lai massacre. This was the only incentive John needed to finish the tale about his life. Where Have All the Flowers Gone is an unbiased and concise summary of the Vietnam conflict, written in the hopes that a young reader would gain some knowledge and a better understanding of this tragic period in American history. Why would anybody wish to write about Vietnam? “Because as Santayana has warned: “Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.” And this nation—great as it is—¬cannot afford another Vietnam.

Louis Barfe's elegantly written, authoritative and highly entertaining history charts the meteoric rise and slow decline of the popular recording industry. Barfe shows how the 1920s and 1930s saw the departure of Edison from the phonograph business he created and the birth of EMI and CBS. In the years after the war, these companies, and the buccaneers, hucksters, impresarios and con-men who ran them, reaped stupendous commercial benefits with the arrival of Elvis Presley, who changed popular music (and sales of popular music) overnight. After Presley came the Beatles, when the recording industry became global and record sales reached all time highs. Where Have All The Good Times Gone? also charts the decline from that high-point a generation ago. The 1990s ushered in a period of profound crisis and uncertainty in the industry, encapsulated in one word: Napster. Barfe shows how the almost infinite amounts of free music available online have traumatic and disastrous consequences for an industry that has become cautious and undynamic.
