From Leonard Downie Jr., longtime editor of The Washington Post, an eye-opening novel of corruption, deception, and intrigue in our nation’s capital. Sarah Page, a rising star at the Washington Capital, has been assigned to cover the dark world of politics and money in Washington. But when she begins to investigate an influential lobbyist and his clients, she realizes that little is what it seems. As Sarah digs deeper, one of her sources is murdered and others disappear. She herself is the target of a car bomb, and a late-night caller warns that she is jeopardizing national security. And while she is determined to pursue the story wherever it leads, her own romantic indiscretions leave her vulnerable. Sarah is helped by Pat Scully, an evasive, cryptic source in hiding; Kit Morgan, a ubiquitous presence in the national security community whose employer remains a mystery; and Chris Collins, a cooperative congressman whose motives are obscure. When President Susan Cameron—suddenly thrust into the job when her predecessor dies in the White House—is confronted with what Sarah has found, the scheming of her top aides and her own political survival come into conflict with her duty to the country. No one knows more about Washington, its inner workings and secrets than Leonard Downie Jr. And no novel has better captured the tensions among business interests, politicians, and the press, or the morally ambiguous ways in which all three really work. The Rules of the Game is a riveting and searing debut. From the Hardcover edition.

Sports law is an ever-growing field that requires constant updates, analyses, and research. Rules of the Game: Sports Law provides the most up-to-date information on hot-button issues such as crime in sports—including sexual harassment and assault both on college campuses and in private homes—sports litigation—especially pertaining to concussions—and publicity, privacy, and defamation rights of the athlete in today’s social media-crazed world where reputations can be destroyed in an instant. Rules of the Game is an engaging and informative book written by one of the leading authorities in the field. Michael E. Jones offers readers the basics—such as how contracts are formed, the rights of athletes, labor laws, the NCAA, and copyright and trademark laws—but also covers much more. Jones discusses such essential topics as gender equity in sports, performance enhancing drugs and testing, international competition, and sports liability. The growth of multi-million and even billion dollar sports franchises requires enhanced professionalism in the area of negotiating sports and endorsement contracts, and the major players in the sports agency field are covered in full. Rules of the Game contains appendixes that offer valuable resources, including a sample drug testing consent form, a standard player contract from the NFL, and a National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) representation contract. With key words and discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book is a comprehensive yet highly readable text for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The second volume of Michel Leiris’s hugely influential four-volume autobiographical essay, available to English-language readers in a brilliant and sensitive translation by Lydia Davis One of the most versatile and beloved French intellectuals of the twentieth century, Michel Leiris reconceives the autobiography as a literary experiment that sheds light on the mechanisms of memory and on the way the unconnected events of a life become connected through invented narrative. In this volume, the second in his four-volume epic autobiographical enterprise, Leiris merges quotidian events with profound philosophical self-exploration. He also wrangles with the disillusionment that accompanies his own self-reflection. In the midst of struggling with his own motives for writing an autobiographical essay, he comes to the revelation that life, after all, has aspects worth remembering even if moments of beauty are bookended by misery. Yet what can be said of human life, of his own life, when his memory is unreliable, his eyesight is failing, and his mood is despairing?

Foreword by Admiral Sir John Woodward. When published in hardcover in 1997, this book was praised for providing an engrossing education not only in naval strategy and tactics but in Victorian social attitudes and the influence of character on history. In juxtaposing an operational with a cultural theme, the author comes closer than any historian yet to explaining what was behind the often described operations of this famous 1916 battle at Jutland. Although the British fleet was victorious over the Germans, the cost in ships and men was high, and debates have raged within British naval circles ever since about why the Royal Navy was unable to take advantage of the situation. In this book Andrew Gordon focuses on what he calls a fault-line between two incompatible styles of tactical leadership within the Royal Navy and different understandings of the rules of the games.

Crime & Prison Drama - First in a trilogy * Novels and Screenplays Completed "Rules Of The Game is a dramatically compelling novel, crackling with authenticity, and relentlessly honest in its portrayal of prison life at a time when the U.S. has become a gulag society." - Dr. Clive Leeman, PhD, English and African Literature - Synopsis - Adrian Cabraal viewed himself as a good family man, and in many ways he was. But there was that other side of him, the one that lived life in the fast lane with its big risks, big money, and heavy hitters. Now Adrian has changed, and so have his values. He wants out, but he's waited too long. Betrayed to Federal Agents, he's forced to decide between becoming a government informer and jeopardizing his family - or risking a thirty-year prison term. After choosing the road less traveled, he enters the dark netherworld of a maximum security Federal Penitentiary where he quickly discovers that living between written laws and unwritten codes means walking a fine and dangerous line. On one hand there's mob boss Carmine Ruffino, the friend of an old friend who's supposed to look after Adrian in exchange for his silence. Then there are the prison officials who want Adrian to set up Ruffino, or face an off-the-record execution at the hands of their own henchmen. Finally, there's the murderous convict Adrian crosses, who's committed to making sure Adrian never gets out alive to rejoin the loved ones who refuse to abandon him. Life is difficult in a world with no safe havens, and there isn't even room to breathe. - Endorsements - - Nicholas Pileggi, Author / Screenwriter - Goodfellas, Casino, City Hall, American Gangster "I've known Bruce for a long time, and am familiar with his work. He writes with such conviction because he's been there and done it." - David Black, Award Winning Author / Screenwriter - Law & Order, NYPD Blue, Hill Street Blues, and Former Executive Producer CSI: Miami.
