Perfectly Awful

Perfectly Awful
By Charley Rosen

Starred Booklist review:
“The literature of sport usually focuses on championship teams and players. But the road to the top is littered with vanquished foes. The ‘72–’73 76ers are the ultimate vanquished foe. Great reading”
Wes Lukowsky

Fu-goFu-go
By Ross Coen

Unshelved review:
“This is the kind of history that I want to know. How had I not heard of this weapon? Was it successful? For me, this ranks right up there with training dolphins to destroy enemy ships at sea.”

Rozelle

Rozelle
By Jerry Izenberg

Philly.com review:
“Izenberg is from the old school, answering questions, questioning answers. It’s good to read about Rozelle and the NFL’s growing pains. It’s even better because Izenberg did the reporting and the writing.”
-Stan Hochman

Downwind

Downwind
By Sarah Alisabeth Fox

High Country News review:
“In addition to illuminating the past, this book also sheds light on the present, challenging us to wonder what “official fictions” are being constructed today.”

Winning in Both Leagues

Winning in Both Leagues
By J. Frank Cashen

-Henry D. Fetter

Antiwar Dissent

Antiwar Dissent and Peace Activism in World War I America
Edited and with an introduction by Scott H. Bennett and Charles F. Howlett

History News Network review:
“Every generation needs to be reminded of and taught the heavy price exacted by war. Antiwar Dissent would be a fine gift to high school students before their generation is called on to once again fight some new and pointless war.”
