In this gripping story, Ralph Robb gives an insight into the training methods and philosophy of the Wolverhampton YMCA karate club - which was once the top club in Britain. The YMCA won innumerable tournaments, and amongst its greatest achievements were two All-styles British Clubs championships, five UK Wado team titles and one Shotokan national team championship (1976 GB Shotokan Karate International). This book is as much about karate as it is about love, friendship, mental illness, the National Front - and in the end, death. The author is a former Wado Ryu karate champion (UKKW 1982) and a European all-styles silver medallist"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------hardcover, a Near Fine/Fine copy in a Near Fine/Fine dustjacket, looks new, signed without inscription by Salman Rushdie, 636 pages, ---"On February 14, 1989, Valentine’s Day, Salman Rushdie was telephoned by a BBC journalist and told that he had been “sentenced to death” by the Ayatollah Khomeini. For the first time he heard the word fatwa. His crime? To have written a novel called The Satanic Verses, which was accused of being “against Islam, the Prophet and the Quran.” --So begins the extraordinary story of how a writer was forced underground, moving from house to house, with the constant presence of an armed police protection team. He was asked to choose an alias that the police could call him by. He thought of writers he loved and combinations of their names; then it came to him: Conrad and Chekhov—Joseph Anton. --How do a writer and his family live with the threat of murder for more than nine years? How does he go on working? How does he fall in and out of love? How does despair shape his thoughts and actions, how and why does he stumble, how does he learn to fight back? In this remarkable memoir Rushdie tells that story for the first time; the story of one of the crucial battles, in our time, for freedom of speech. He talks about the sometimes grim, sometimes comic realities of living with armed policemen, and of the close bonds he formed with his protectors; of his struggle for support and understanding from governments, intelligence chiefs, publishers, journalists, and fellow writers; and of how he regained his freedom. It is a book of exceptional frankness and honesty, compelling, provocative, moving, and of vital importance. Because what happened to Salman Rushdie was the first act of a drama that is still unfolding somewhere in the world every day."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

She has seen two world wars and 97 years of the most rapid progress in mankind's history completely alter her world (and the royal family's place in it), yet she retains the old-fashioned charm, elegance and dignity that epitomised the Edwardian Lady. And, more significantly, she has successfully continued to live the Edwardian lifestyle: Her five-storey London house contains some 40 servants; she does not like to eat alone so dinner is seldom for fewer than sixteen people; her summer migration to her two castles in Scotland involves two army lorries transporting over 200 pieces of luggage. And it costs the queen two million pounds a year to maintain the slow Edwardian existence she loves. Using her unique insight to the Royal Family, Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chef of Majesty magazine, has written not only a fascinating, perceptive account of the life of Britain's best loved Royal, but also a powerful, important account of the twentieth century"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

This moving memoir paints life in WWII Japanese concentration camps from Bambi's three-year-old eyes. Near-death experiences there, as interpreted by her Buddhist nanny, formed the foundation of Ms. Shen's philosophy of living in gratitude and being of service to others.

----------softcover, about 6 x 9 inches, a Very Good+ copy with a wee bit of light rubbing, 289 pages, b&w photos, an advance uncorrected proof copy, ---"Long before she became the renowned author of the best-selling Schmecks cookbooks, an award-winning journalist for magazines such as Macleans, and a creative non-fiction mentor, Edna Staebler was a writer of a different sort. Staebler began serious diary writing at the age of sixteen and continued to write for over eighty years. Must Write: Edna Staebler's Diaries draws from these diaries selections that map Staebler's construction of herself as a writer and documents her frustrations and struggles, along with her desire to express herself, in writing. She felt she must write-that not to write was a "denial of life"-while at the same time she doubted the value of her scribblings. --Spanning much of the twentieth century-each decade is introduced by an overview of key events in the author's life during that period-the diaries vividly illuminate both her intensely personal experiences and her broader social world. The volume also presents four key examples of Staebler's public writing: her first published magazine article; her first award-winning publication; the opening chapter of her book Cape Breton Harbour; and her lively account of the Great Cookie War. Must Write: Edna Staebler's Diaries portrays an ordinary woman's struggle to write in the context of her lived experience. "All my life I have talked about writing and kept scribbling in my notebook, as if that makes me a writer," wrote Staebler in 1986. This volume argues that the very act of writing the diaries, with all their contradictory accounts of writerly ambition, success, and conflict, made Staebler the writer she yearned to be.

Originally published in 1976, A Man Called Intrepid sold over 2 million copies and quickly became a New York Times bestseller. However, readers will be just as fascinated by his life’s story and adventures. Stevenson chronicles the major events of his life, beginning with his daring and dangerous time as a naval pilot during WWII flying a multitude of new aircraft -Stringbag, Tiger Moth, Seafire, Hellcats -and learning various maneuvers in the skies over England, Canada, Scotland, and the Pacific. After the war, still yearning for adventure, he returns to Canada to write for The Toronto Daily Star, where he first meets William Stephenson (aka Intrepid ) on assignment and develops a lifelong friendship. Stevenson travels the globe, visiting Hong Kong, Delhi, Kashmir, Kenya, Kuala Lumpur, Moscow, Thailand, and many other exotic locals, where he meets iconic figures, such as Ian Fleming, Prime Minister Nehru, Ho Chi Minh, Chiang Kai-shek, Mao Tse-tung, Zhou Enlai, Tito, Khrushchev, and the King of Thailand among others. Privy to confidential information, full of international intrigue, Stevenson is a living embodiment of Twentieth Century history. Past to Present, with story after amazing story to tell, will leave the reader breathless."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
