This eye-catching book tells the story of World Championship motorcycle racing with particular emphasis on the past 25 years and the role of Dorna, the international sports management and marketing group. Spain-based Dorna became involved in motorcycle racing in 1992 and set about stabilising the ailing World Championship, which had run since 1949, and introducing a new era of direction and harmony, and of sporting and commercial success. The effect of Dorna's efforts is abundantly apparent in the present-day stature of MotoGP throughout the world. In this book the world's best motorcycle-racing authors tell the entire story - of the racing itself and the Dorna backdrop to it - of those 25 years in a lively style that will appeal not only to those involved professionally in the sport but also its millions of fans world-wide. * The Dorna story, written by Dennis Noyes, is a remarkable behind-the-scenes insight, especially into those early days embracing the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme), IRTA (International Road Racing Teams Association) and MSMA (Motorcycle Sport Manufacturers Association). The stories of the battles, the money and the involvement of Bernie Ecclestone are brilliantly divulged by the key players.

Many people are unaware that from 1945 to 1975, downstate lawmakers dominated the Illinois political arena. In TheDealmakers of Downstate Illinois, Robert E. Hartley details the lives and contributions of three influential southern Illinois politicians, Paul Powell, Clyde Choate, and John Stelle. He describes how these “dealmakers” were able to work with Democrats and Republicans throughout the state to bring jobs and facilities to their region. Using a variety of coalitions, they maintained downstate political strength in the face of growing Chicago influence. Hartley traces the personal histories of Powell, Choate, and Stelle, shows how they teamed up to advance a downstate political agenda, and reviews their challenges and successes. Beginning with an account of early experiences, including the battlefield courage that earned Choate the Medal of Honor as well as Stelle’s World War I experience and later entrepreneurship, the book continues with an exploration of the groundwork for their collaborative legislative agenda and their roles in the growth of Southern Illinois University and the passage of income tax legislation. Hartley reviews the importance of Powell’s relationship with Governor Stratton, Choate’s leadership of the 1972 Democratic National Convention and his relationships with Governor Walker and with Chicago interests. The Dealmakers of Downstate Illinois is a vivid, straightforward tale of fighting in the legislative chambers, backstabbing behind the scenes, and trading special favors for votes in pursuit of not only personal gain but also the advancement of a regional agenda.
