Beyond A Boundary
Beyond A Boundary
'To say "the best cricket book ever written" is piffingly inadequate praise' Guardian

'Great claims have been made for Beyond a Boundary since its first appearance in 1963- that it is the greatest sports book ever written; that it brings the outsider a privileged insight into West Indian culture; that it is a severe examination of the colonial condition. All are true' Sunday Times

C L R James, one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century, was devoted to the game of cricket. In this classic summation of half a lifetime spent playing, watching and writing about the sport, he recounts the story of his overriding passion and tells us of the players whom he knew and loved, exploring the game's psychology and aesthetics, and the issues of class, race and politics that surround it.

Part memoir of a West Indian boyhood, part passionate celebration and defence of cricket as an art form, part indictment of colonialism, Beyond a Boundary addresses not just a sport but a whole culture and asks the question, 'What do they know of cricket who only cricket know?

Black Boots NZs Rugby Legends
Black Boots NZs Rugby Legends
Over 180 great images of New Zealand's legendary rugby heroes, both on the field and behind the scenes, from a classic era of amateur rugby in New Zealand. Barry Durrant's photographs and Phil Gifford's captions capture the nostalgia of that wonderful time, when the All Blacks were just like us - they were the pig farmer down the road in Inglewood, the bank clerk who stamped our savings account book in Hawera and the freezing worker on the bus with us in Otahuhu - and all they got for pay was glory.

Black Jersey  Silver Fern Tom Ellison
Black Jersey Silver Fern Tom Ellison
Tom Ellison is the man behind the black jersey and silver fern of the All Blacks. He was the "Mr Rugby" of his era, a tremendous player who captained the All Blacks in 1893 (the first Maori to do so), captained, coached and selected teams, developed the role of the wing-forward which was to give New Zealand an enduring advantage and wrote one of the fifi rst instructional books on rugby. His views were respected nationally and he was widely quoted. His story is rich in individuals and incident. His great-grandfather was chief Taiaroa of Ngai Tahu, his grandfather Edward Weller the whaler of Otakou and his father Raniera the discoverer of gold at Maori Point on the Shotover River. Tom Ellison went from Te Aute College to Wellington to become one of the fifi rst Maori lawyers. He had a myriad of interests and brought energy and fresh vision to them all. This is the story of his life.

Chasing Glory Twelve Months with the All Blacks
Chasing Glory Twelve Months with the All Blacks
The 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign is shaping up to be the most intriguing World Cup campaign ever for the All Blacks, because they're going for their third title in a row. It will cap a decade of dominance for the team, who broke their 24-year drought in 2011 and then breezed through to win the 2015 edition.

This year will be a much tougher challenge, though.

The signs are there that most of the other test playing nations have gained some serious ground on the All Blacks in the last couple of seasons. This was seen in the results against England and Ireland late last year.

Chasing Glory focuses on the lead up and World Cup campaign itself, which very much started in October 2018. The All Blacks went to Japan for a couple of tests and then on to Europe for three more, which was seen as a dry run for what would happen in a year's time. The tour itself was a hard slog, with the team clearly feeling the effects of a long season. Notably, coach Steve Hansen and captain Kieran Read came under considerable scrutiny throughout.

Jamie Wall covers the year leading up to the cup, including Super Rugby and the Six Nations, the test season in New Zealand (and the games that will be played in Buenos Aires and Perth), then the final preparations that lead up to the squad being named. Then, a blow-by-blow account of the All Blacks' games, trainings, press conferences and dramas throughout the World Cup as Jamie follows the team through the campaign in Japan.

All of which will lead to either a triumphant final victory on 2 November. . .or a crushing defeat that will signal a new era in world rugby.

Dynatomy Dynamic Human Anatomy
Dynatomy Dynamic Human Anatomy
This title deals with the wonders of human movement and applied anatomy. "Dynatomy: Dynamic Human Anatomy with DVD" is intended for students of human performance who have an understanding of human anatomy and need a strong text in functional anatomy. This entertaining and easy-to-understand book considers fundamental movements such as posture, walking, running, jumping, throwing, kicking and lifting, together with selected exercise and sport movements. The emphasis of Dynatomy is on dynamic muscular motions rather than structural anatomy.

The text also introduces the muscle control formula and explains how to identify the ways in which muscles contract during movement. Completing the text is the "Primal Pictures DVD-ROM Essentials of Interactive Functional Anatomy". This software will help students thoroughly review components of structural anatomy through the use of 3-D interactive computer-graphic models of human anatomy derived from MRI scan data.
