Henry E White was born in 1876 in Dunedin NZ, had only primary school education, became a carpenter, then a self-taught engineer, calling himself "architect" in 1912. He designed engineering and architectural works in New Zealand and from 1915, in Australia. He designed the Bunnerong Power Station, a number of high-rise office buildings but was best known for his theatre designs such as the State Theatre, Sydney. His life style was flamboyant with large house at Point Piper (Sydney), large yacht, expensive cars, and a female "companion" who supplanted his wife in 1936. In 1941 he transformed himself into a mining engineer with a loss-making business. He lost his house and his yacht, moving to a small flat at Kings Cross (Sydney) four years before his death in 1952. He died with nothing except an old Rolls. Royce

Despite myriad popular and journalistic expositions, up to this point there have been virtually no academic discussions of the Manchester United phenomenon. This anthology represents the first concerted academic examination of Manchester United F.C. in its current guise as a widely followed and highly emblematic sporting institution. Bringing together respected academics from an array of disciplinary backgrounds these essays each interrogate various related dimensions of the Manchester United world. The primary aim of this collection is to illustrate how the structure and experience of Manchester United is implicated in broader societal shifts, within which the boundary between cultural and commercial concerns have become increasingly indivisible. The chapters are presented within five thematic sections: 1 Becoming United 2 Economy United 3 Embodied United 4 Local United 5 Global United

King Ryons has led his tiny army into the heart of the Thunder King's dominion. Ahead lies the impregnable fortress of the enemy, defended by the destructive powers of the ancient world. The First Prester, Lord Orth, continues his missionary work among the Heathen: for God has commanded him to establish a new Temple, one not made with human hands. But in the great city of Obann, they reject Orth's vision and seek to rebuild the old Temple with tainted gold amassed for the Thunder King by crime and violence. In Ryons' absence, his enemies work to abolish his kingdom and restore the defeated Oligarchy. They now control a vast treasure in gold, to be used against the king, and no scruple hinders them. Can the boy king's few remaining loyalists stop them? Can they protect the kingdom until the king returns to claim it? That is, it the king returns at all: for the way to the Thunder King's fortress is perilous beyond measure.
