Think you know the beautiful game? What would YOU do if you were the man in black? 1) A keeper jumps to punch a corner clear, but fluffs it completely, knocking the ball into his own net. He screams that a laser was shone into his eyes - and as you look round you do see a laser pen in the crowd. What now? 2) A striker has his shirt repeatedly pulled by his marker. Angrily, he takes his shirt off and sarcastically hands it to his opponent. What do you do? 3) In the half-time break after a stormy first forty-five minutes, your assistant calls you over and points out that the home side´s star striker has been using the interval to tweet offensive remarks about you. How do you react? Legendary Roy of the Rovers artist Paul Trevillion here presents 160 tricky new footballing dilemmas from his cult classic strip. Pit your wits against the distinguished referee Keith Hackett in his toughest scenarios yet. Interspersed with a wealth of facts and stats about the ´World Cup titans´, and giving an insight into the sometimes bizarre and unpredictable challenges a referee can face, this book puts YOU in the hot seat.

The Prison Letters of Nelson Mandela
€ 22.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arrested in 1962 as South Africa´s apartheid regime intensified its brutal campaign against political opponents, forty-four-year-old lawyer and African National Congress activist Nelson Mandela had no idea that he would spend the next twenty-seven years in jail. During his 10,052 days of incarceration, Mandela wrote hundreds of letters to unyielding prison authorities, fellow activists, government officials, and most memorably, to his wife Winnie and his five children. Painstakingly researched, authenticated and catalogued by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the letters have been drawn from the Foundation´s archive as well as from public and private collections held by the Mandela family and South African government archives. Mandela´s letters are organised chronologically and divided by the four prisons in which he was incarcerated. Each section opens with a short introduction to provide a historical overview of each of these periods and the collection features a foreword by Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela.Im Kampf gegen die Rassentrennung in Afrika nahm Nelson Mandela alles in Kauf. Auch 27 Jahre in Haft. In der Gefangenschaft konnte er nur noch durch Briefe Kontakt zur Außenwelt halten. Diese Briefe, die nun erstmals veröffentlicht werden, zeigen Mandela so nah und menschlich wie niemals zuvor. Aus ihnen spricht ein Mann, der seine Frau und seine Kinder zärtlich liebt, der das Leben in Freiheit bitter entbehrt und den doch keine Macht der Welt zu beugen vermag. In einer Zeit, in der die Welt ihren moralischen Kompass verloren zu haben scheint, erinnern uns Nelson Mandelas atemberaubende Briefe daran, dass Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit nicht verhandelbar sind. Nelson Mandelas Haftzeit begann am 5. August 1962 und endete am 11. Februar 1990. Nach seiner Entlassung und dem Ende der Apartheid wurde er zum ersten schwarzen Präsidenten seines Landes gewählt und trug entscheidend durch seine Politik der Versöhnung dazu bei, Südafrika vor einem blutigen Bürgerkrieg zu bewahren. In den langen Jahren seiner Haft hat Mandela zahlreiche Briefe geschrieben: an seine Frau und seine Kinder, seine Anwälte, den Gefängnisdirektor und den Premierminister. So unmittelbar wie nirgendwo sonst sprechen in diesen Briefen seine Gedanken und seine Gefühle zu uns - doch zugleich schildern sie auch höchst anschaulich das Leben und den Alltag im Gefängnis. Aus Anlass des 100. Geburtstages von Nelson Mandela am 18. Juli 2018 erscheint nun erstmals eine Auswahl von 250 Briefen aus dem Gefängnis, herausgegeben von der Nelson-Mandela- Foundation, von denen mehr als 90% bislang unveröffentlicht sind. Sie sind ein ergreifendes Zeugnis der Humanität und der menschlichen Größe, das kein Leser ohne Bewegung zu lesen vermag.

Heretic
€ 17.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Continuing her journey from a deeply religious Islamic upbringing to a post at Harvard, the brilliant, charismatic and controversial New York Times and Globe and Mail #1 bestselling author of Infidel and Nomad makes a powerful plea for a Muslim Reformation as the only way to end the horrors of terrorism, sectarian warfare and the repression of women and minorities. Today, she argues, the world´s 1.6 billion Muslims can be divided into a minority of extremists, a majority of observant but peaceable Muslims and a few dissidents who risk their lives by questioning their own religion. But there is only one Islam and, as Hirsi Ali shows, there is no denying that some of its key teachings-not least the duty to wage holy war-are incompatible with the values of a free society. For centuries it has seemed as if Islam is immune to change. But Hirsi Ali has come to believe that a Muslim Reformation-a revision of Islamic doctrine aimed at reconciling the religion with modernity-is now at hand, and may even have begun. The Arab Spring may now seem like a political failure. But its challenge to traditional authority revealed a new readiness-not least by Muslim women-to think freely and to speak out. Courageously challenging the jihadists, she identifies five key amendments to Islamic doctrine that Muslims have to make to bring their religion out of the seventh century and into the twenty-first. And she calls on the Western world to end its appeasement of the Islamists. ´´Islam is not a religion of peace,´´ she writes. It is the Muslim reformers who need our backing, not the opponents of free speech. Interweaving her own experiences, historical analogies and powerful examples from contemporary Muslim societies and cultures, Heretic is not a call to arms, but a passionate plea for peaceful change and a new era of global toleration. In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo murders, with jihadists killing thousands from Nigeria to Syria to Pakistan, this book offers an answer to what is fast becoming the world´s number one problem.

The Modern Pirc, DVD-ROM
€ 24.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Victor Bologan: The Modern Pirc Viktor Bologan has played the Pirc all his life and explains why he likes this opening: ´´Strong Grandmasters, International Masters or amateurs often ask me what they should play with Black against 1.e4 if they want to play for a win. Sometimes I say ´Just play your opening and play it good´ but sometimes you need to or want to get your opponent out of his comfort zone, out of his preparation. This often happens in open tournaments where you have to play for a win with both colors. I have played the Modern Pirc all my life and it has brought me a lot of success. For example, in the New York Open 1997, the strongest open of that time, I won four games with Black in the Modern Pirc which helped me to win the tournament. The Modern Pirc is actually a mixture of the Caro-Kann and the Pirc. In many lines Black combines the ideas of the classical Pirc in which the fianchettoed bishop is important with the Caro-Kann idea to fight for the center with c6-d5. The Modern Pirc is a very flexible and rich opening. By studying The Modern Pirc you will definitely refresh your chess brain and get a lot of new ideas.´´ The DVD offers Black a complete repertoire against e4 and is useful for players of all levels. - Video running time: 4 h 42 min (English) - With interactive training including video feedback - Extra: Database with 50 model games - Including ChessBase Reader Victor Bologan is a pupil of the top Moldovan trainer Vecheslav Chebanenko.
