The result of years of research by its authors, this discography strives to identify and trace the recorded development of the musical style now known as western swing from its early years through World War II. The style developed from the Texas string band tradition, growing from a fiddle and guitar duo into full swing band groups, and along the way, it drew from and absorbed a variety of other musical styles, thus making it one of the most diverse genres in American music. Through exhaustive research and interviews, Ginell and Coffey have provided the most complete and comprehensive listing of pre-War western swing and hot string band recordings to date.

When Pierre Omidyar launched a clunky website from a spare bedroom over Labor Day weekend of 1995, he wanted to see if he could use the Internet to create a perfect market. He never guessed his old-computer-parts and Beanie Baby exchange would revolutionize the world of commerce. Now, Adam Cohen, the only journalist ever to get full access to the company, tells the remarkable story of eBay's rise. He describes how eBay built the most passionate community ever to form in cyberspace and forged a business that triumphed over larger, better-funded rivals. And he explores the ever-widening array of enlistees in the eBay revolution, from a stay-at-home mom who had to rent a warehouse for her thriving business selling bubble-wrap on eBay to the young MBA who started eBay Motors (which within months of its launch was on track to sell $1 billion in cars a year), to collectors nervously bidding thousands of dollars on antique clothing-irons. Adam Cohen's fascinating look inside eBay is essential reading for anyone trying to figure out what's next. If you want to truly understand the Internet economy, "The Perfect Store" is indispensable.
This satirical first novel by Zoompad looks at growing up in the Sixties and Seventies, highlighting the ludicrous injustices of the Pin down system. A young girl is sexually abused, taken into care, and then farcically re-abuse d by the very system that was supposed to be looking after her. Zoompad takes the reader on a refreshingly honest and often very funny journey through small town England from the 1960's first from the eyes of a child, then as a horse-mad teenager. It is a journey that encompasses the very meaning of life, morality, and justice, love and respect. Why are we here and what's the point? It's a book about anger, yet bears no trace of residual bitterness, a book that kicks against taboos in a quest for openness and understanding. The subject matter is distressing, yet this book will leave the reader feeling strangely uplifted and eager to blow the dust off that collection of the sixties and seventies music.

The untold story of Babe Ruth's Yankees, John McGraw's Giants, and the extraordinary baseball season of 1923 Before the 27 World Series titles--before Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Derek Jeter-the Yankees were New York's shadow franchise. They hadn't won a championship, and they didn't even have their own field, renting the Polo Grounds from their cross-town rivals the New York Giants. In 1921 and 1922, they lost to the Giants when it mattered most: in October. But in 1923, the Yankees played their first season on their own field, the newly-built, state of the art baseball palace in the Bronx called "the Yankee Stadium." The stadium was a gamble, erected in relative outerborough obscurity...
