Film star. Icon. Agitator. Martyr. Paul Robeson was a prize-winning scholar and the greatest footballer of his era, even before he ascended to global superstardom as a singer, Hollywood actor, and activist. The son of an escaped slave, Robeson stunned audiences with ‘Ol’ Man River’ and Othello, as his passion for social justice led him from Jazz Age Harlem to the mining towns of Wales, from the frontiers of the Spanish Civil War to Stalin’s Russia. Charismatic, eloquent, and handsome, he had everything — and then lost it all for the sake of his principles. Jeff Sparrow traces Robeson’s troubled life and stellar career, in a story that traverses the arc of the twentieth century and illuminates the fissures of today’s fractured world. From Black Lives Matter to Putin’s United Russia, Sparrow visits the places Robeson lived and worked, exploring race in America, freedom in Moscow, and the legacies of communism and fascism in Europe. Part travelogue, part biography, this is a tale of political ardour, heritage, and trauma — a luminous portrait of a remarkable man, and an urgent reflection on the crises that define us now.

“There is no way but gentlenesse to redeeme a Hawke” Edmund Bert, 1619 Born and raised in the South Yorkshire mining village of Hoyland Common, Richard Hines remembers sliding down heaps of coal dust, listening out for the colliery siren at the end of shifts, and praying for his father's safe return. It seemed all too likely that he would follow in his father's footsteps and end up working in the pits, especially when to his mother's horror and his own he failed the 11+, so that unlike his older brother Barry, who had passed the exam to grammar school and who seemed to be heading for great things, Richard was left without hope of academic achievement. Crushed by this, and persecuted by the cruelty of his teachers, Richard spent his time in the fields and meadows just beyond the colliery slag heap. One morning, walking in the grounds of a ruined medieval manor, he came across a nest of kestrels. Instantly captivated, he sought out ancient falconry texts from the local library, and pored over the strange and beautiful language there. With just these books, some ingenuity, and his profound respect for the hawk's indomitable wildness, Richard learned to “man”, or train, his kestrel, Kes, and in the process grow into the man he would become. Richard and his experiences with kestrels inspired Barry's classic novel A Kestrel for a Knave. When production began on what would become Ken Loach's iconic film Kes, Richard found himself training the kestrels that would soar on screen and into cinematic history. No Way But Gentlenesse is a superb, moving memoir of one remarkable boy's love for a forgotten culture, and his attempt to find salvation in the natural world.

Olympic gold medalist. Two-time world heavyweight champion. Hall of Famer. Infomercial and reality TV star. George Foreman’s fighting ability is matched only by his acumen for selling. Yet the complete story of Foreman’s transition from an urban ghetto to global celebrity has never before been told. Raised in Houston’s “Bloody Fifth” Ward, battling against scarcity in housing and food, young Foreman fought sometimes for survival and other times just for fun. But when a government program rescued him from poverty and introduced him to the sport of boxing, his life changed forever. In No Way but to Fight, Andrew R. M. Smith traces Foreman’s life and career from Great Migration to Great Society, through the Cold War and Culture Wars, out of urban Houston and onto the world stage where he discovered that fame wrought new challenges. Drawing on new interviews with George Foreman and declassified government documents, as well as more than fifty domestic and international newspapers and magazines, Smith brings to life the exhilarating story of a true American icon. No Way but to Fight is an epic worthy of a champion.

In the early afternoon of August 14, 1994, in less time than it takes to untie a shoe, an entire life unraveled. Craig Vanderburg, active and talented father of two, added "quadriplegic and brain damaged" to his list of attributes. Until he was forty-one, Craig's enjoyment of Alaska's bounty, fishing, hunting, boating, and snowmachining, had been a solitary endeavor. After he added the love of a woman to his love of the landscape, there followed children, more extensive travels, and the building of a home for his growing family. Nineteen years later, the brain damage had erased neither his memory of his own identity, nor that of his loved ones. While the family members acknowledged the prognosis that recovering physical capability would be impossible, they were unanimous in their resolve to bring him home again. Medical personnel, well-meaning but misguided, united in a campaign of skepticism to discourage the family from such pipe dreams and, it appeared, to destroy even the hope that Craig might live long enough to leave the hospital.No Way But Up celebrates his will to survive in defiance of the odds and attitudes, and revisits the question whether life with a disability is worse than no life at all, and who gets to make that choice. It chronicles an arduous personal and family journey through a waking nightmare, during which every day, sometimes every hour, seems to last a lifetime. It is, above all, a love story. MaryLou Vanderburg recreates the emotional roller coaster of uncertainty, hope and despair that prevailed during the seven and a half months of Craig's hospitalization, which was fraught with endless, if not entirely unexpected, complications associated with spinal cord injury. Integrated throughout are glimpses of the Alaska lifestyle now forever beyond their reach. The family strives, both by bucking the system and trying to work within it, to refashion some semblance of normal life amid the shards remaining from the old one.
