BOOK EXCERPT:

An account that tackles “the Pats’ wilderness years to the current dynasty . . . with fresh insight, bite, and humor from an All-Pro roster of writers” (John U. Bacon, New York Times bestselling author of Overtime). The New England Patriots have become a dynasty, though it didn’t begin that way. Love ’em, hate ’em, the Pats have captured this country’s attention like no other franchise. From two award-winning authors this is the first complete story of a legendary team and its five championship trophies. In the tradition of their celebrated illustrated histories of some of sports’ most iconic franchises, Stout and Johnson tell the history in full and in colorful detail. This is a lavishly illustrated tale full of larger-than-life characters—from founding owner Billy Sullivan, early stars like Syracuse running back Jim Nance and beloved wide receiver turned broadcaster Gino Cappeletti, to Hall of Famers and stars like John Hannah, Russ Francis, and Steve Grogan through to present-day stars like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and owner Bob Kraft. Featuring essays by Richard Johnson, Upton Bell, Leigh Montville, Howard Bryant, Ron Borges, Lesley Visser and more, The Pats is a must-have gift for fans, old and new, and an indelible portrait of the most talked about team in NFL history. “Glenn Stout and Richard Johnson . . . whisk us back in time to old ballparks, long-ago games and the personalities who made Boston a dynamic sports town. What Stout and Johnson did for baseball with Red Sox Century they now do for football with The Pats.”—Steve Buckley, Boston Herald “The book every Patriots fan has been waiting for.”—Bob Ryan, Boston Globe columnist emeritus and ESPN commentator

Entertains with humorous, insightful quotations from players, coaches, executives and owners. Essential reading for fans of Bill Belichick's Patriots and anyone seeking to build a great organization. * "Lavin makes a strong... case that the Patriots 'are a better organization than they are a team.'" (Richard Sandomir, New York Times, Jan. 22, 2005) * "Whether you're a New England fan or not, you'll be fascinated by [this] intriguing new book." (John McClain, Houston Chronicle, Jan. 30, 2005) * "Lavin has melded together fascinating quotes, statistics, and revelations that keep the reader entranced throughout the 350-page tome. A wonderful opportunity to [meet] the players, characters, and team... Lavin's remarkable story provides the recipe for championship stew." (Christopher Young, Boston Phoenix, Jan. 31, 2005) * "Fascinating." (Dave Perkins, Toronto Star, Feb. 5, 2005) * "An impressive look at what drives the team's success... It doesn't read like some wonkish, academic text." (Greg Gatlin, Boston Herald, Feb. 6, 2005) * "Timely, insightful book."

Having read and enjoyed other football-as-a-metaphor-for-life books such as The Packer Way by Ron Wolf, Winning the NFL Way by Bob LaMonte... and Think Like A Champion by Mike Shanahan, I can say that Management Secrets of the New England Patriots is as comprehensive and well-written a book as you can find on this subject. ...It was his intention to merge his studies of high-performance organizations and his obsession with his favorite team. This he has done most admirably." (Doug Farrar, Yahoo! Sports, Dec. 31, 2005) * "Intriguing and exhaustingly researched, Management Secrets of the New England Patriots succeeds at going beyond the headlines into the inner workings of the Kraft/Belichick aura. ...Much more than a look at the Patriots business acumen.

A great read." (Stan Jaksina, PatsFans.com, May 30,2005) * "A stunning compendium on the Patriot Way." (Bob George, PatsFans.com, June 12, 2005)

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book features biographies of 32 of the most notable figures in Latin American history. To the 23 individuals from the first edition, consisting mostly of revolutionary, political, and military figures of the past, are added nine new biographies of contemporary Latin American presidents, providing an updated view of the region’s leadership. Several patterns run through the individual biographies. The concept of native identity is an important aspect in the stories of Malinche, Juárez, Sandino, and Zapata—profoundly affecting the politics of modern Brazil, Mexico, and Nicaragua. One also sees a continuing compulsion to rebel against overwhelming odds in the cases of Manuela Sáenz, Che Guevara and Daniel Ortega.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Patriots and Paupers carefully analyzes a crucial juncture in the history of a great city: Hamburg's passage from the pre-modern into the modern world. Despite the relative wealth of historical literature on Reformation Germany and on Germany after unification, few English-language histories have addressed the events of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Mary Lindemann here details issues associated with poor relief--indigency, mendicancy, public health, labor regulation, social control, and disciplining--then uses these as springboards to broader historical debates. She draws out the subtle yet decisive political shift from the paternalistic dirigismé of a government of fathers and uncles to the socio-economic laissez-faire of early liberalism, and locates this political metamorphosis firmly within the framework of Hamburg's dynamic economic development and dramatic demographic growth. She links these political and social changes to the intellectual, cultural, and prosopographical contexts of the German Enlightenment. Far more than a history of poverty and social welfare policies, Patriots and Paupers explores the critical interconnections between economics, demographics, social change, and government in the closing years of the European Old Regime.
