This book is about Edward Ted Ray who was born in the village of Gorey, on the east coast of the island of Jersey near Grouville, which was the nursery of many famous golfers, including the legendary Harry Vardon. Ted was one of the biggest stars in professional golf, considered a mighty driver of the golf ball and a prince of putters. He won the Open Championship in 1912, the US Open in 1920, and many other prestigious tournaments in Great Britain and mainland Europe. He played for Great Britain against the USA in 1921 at Gleneagles and in 1926 at Wentworth. He was the player captain of the Great Britain team in the first ever Ryder Cup match of 1927. Ted would also represent England against Scotland on nine occasions in their annual team matches, as well as Englands nonplaying captain in the 1930s. Ted Ray toured the USA, along with Harry Vardon, in 1913 and 1920 to promote and popularize golf in the Americas. He, like many of the greats of the game, is one of the forgotten men of golf. The book endeavors to spotlight a golfer who is now a distant memory and one that has inexplicably never been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

With only a short time to live, Foran s has been a lone voice against the establishment for 40 years before suppressed evidence emerged to prove his innocence. After two false convictions and spending over 19 years locked up for crimes he did not commit, Foran s second conviction was quashed in 2013 but, alarmingly, compensation was refused and is still being fought for. Continuing his fight against his first conviction, it was eventually referred to the Court Of Appeal and this too was quashed on October 3rd, 2014. In their determination to convict him, the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad resorted to an unprecedented level of corruption and fraud. This corruption became endemic right to the top of the Force and into heart of the justice system until Lord Justice Leveson ordered the disbandment of the Squad. The events are written in candid detail and reveal disturbing evidence of corruption at the highest level.

Down and Out in the Great Depression is a moving, revealing collection of letters by the forgotten men, women, and children who suffered through one of the greatest periods of hardship in American history. Sifting through some 15,000 letters from government and private sources, Robert McElvaine has culled nearly 200 communications that best show the problems, thoughts, and emotions of ordinary people during this time. Unlike views of Depression life "from the bottom up" that rely on recollections recorded several decades later, this book captures the daily anguish of people during the thirties. It puts the reader in direct contact with Depression victims, evoking a feeling of what it was like to live through this disaster. Following Franklin D. Roosevelt's inauguration, both the number of letters received by the White House and the percentage of them coming from the poor were unprecedented. The average number of daily communications jumped to between 5,000 and 8,000, a trend that continued throughout the Rosevelt administration. The White House staff for answering such letters--most of which were directed to FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt, or Harry Hopkins--quickly grew from one person to fifty. Mainly because of his radio talks, many felt they knew the president personally and could confide in him. They viewed the Roosevelts as parent figures, offering solace, help, and protection. Roosevelt himself valued the letters, perceiving them as a way to gauge public sentiment. The writers came from a number of different groups--middle-class people, blacks, rural residents, the elderly, and children. Their letters display emotional reactions to the Depression--despair, cynicism, and anger--and attitudes toward relief. In his extensive introduction, McElvaine sets the stage for the letters, discussing their significance and some of the themes that emerge from them. By preserving their original spelling, syntax, grammar, and capitalization, he conveys their full flavor. The Depression was far more than an economic collapse. It was the major personal event in the lives of tens of millions of Americans. McElvaine shows that, contrary to popular belief, many sufferers were not passive victims of history. Rather, he says, they were "also actors and, to an extent, playwrights, producers, and directors as well," taking an active role in trying to deal with their plight and solve their problems. For this twenty-fifth anniversary edition, McElvaine provides a new foreword recounting the history of the book, its impact on the historiography of the Depression, and its continued importance today.

Though his writings are not spoken of as frequently as they once were, William G. Sumner was a prominent voice in the laissez-faire economic and social philosophies of the late 19th century. This 1919 volume collects some of his most significant essays and lectures, including: . "Protectionism, the -Ism which Teaches that Waste Makes Wealth" (1885) . "What is Free Trade?" (1886) . "Prosperity Strangled by Gold" (1896) . "The Delusion of the Debtors" (1896) . "The Philosophy of Strikes" (1883) . "Trusts and Trade-Unions" (1888) . "Shall Americans Own Ships?" (1881) . "The Science of Sociology" (1882) . and others. Students of modern politics continue to find fascinating parallels-and intriguing disconnects-with 21st-century realities in Sumner's work. American academic and author WILLIAM GRAHAM SUMNER (1840-1910) was an influential professor of sociology and politics at Yale College and president of the American Sociological Association from 1908 to 1909. He wrote numerous and varied books including Andrew Jackson as a Public Man (1882), What Social Classes Owe to Each Other (1883), and Folkways (1906).
