Joe Cocker and the clubs: Pigs Can Fly - With a little help from my friends is a Special 50th anniversary edition book to mark the very peak of life at Club 60 & the Esquire during the exciting early 1960s. The book explains how Joe Cocker first began his sensational musical career under the guidance of his first manager and club owner Terry Thornton. And it also takes you behind the scenes with the stars at two of Terry's former Northern clubs, Club 60 & the Esquire, which were both owned and run by the late entrepreneur in the 1960s. It is a unique account of life within the industrial city of Sheffield when a musty old beer cellar first helped to stage a remarkable revival of popular live entertainment and encouraged an extraordinary new wave of live music to thrive and develop the talents of home grown stars and introduce a wealth of international performers. In addition to Joe Cocker, it also features: - Dave Berry & the Cruisers, Zoot Money, Frank White, Jimmy Crawford & the Coasters, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Alan Price & the Animals, Georgie Fame, Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages, Long John Baldry, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Frankenstein & the Monsters, Johnny Dark & the Midnighters, the Walker Brothers, the Kinks... and many more. Included too are several dozen black and white rare photographs of the stars performing at the two new venues, together with a wealth of interesting pictures of many of the regular club members and supporters. At the back there is also a unique mystery section where readers are asked if they put a name to some of the bands or singers... * Also listen to Joe Cocker's original LIVE demo tape on Youtube: https: //youtu.be/ASKPdRcU_MU
?This book presents an up-to-date portrait of the characteristics of sport clubs in various European countries and their role in society and the national sport system. Furthermore, it offers a cross-national comparative perspective of sport clubs in twenty European countries. Containing both empirical data and information on the political and historical backgrounds of sport clubs, the book is organized in three parts. First, the authors provide an overview of the theoretical approach of the book and a description of the framework used for the country chapters. Second, the country chapters, written by experts within the field, provide a systematic overview of the available information on sport clubs in each country. These chapters are structured to answer the following questions: (1) What is the position of sport clubs within the national sport structure? (2) Which role do they fulfil in policy and society? (3) What are their basic characteristics and what factors influence the development of sport clubs? The book is concluded with a systematic comparison of the participating countries with the purpose of forging a clear link between the functioning of policy systems, observed problems, and possible solutions, and with a future research agenda on sport clubs. In an era of increased collaboration between European states, sport provides a natural vehicle through which to compare changes in culture, economics, and policy across nations. Sport Clubs in Europe will appeal to scholars of nonprofit management, sports management and sports sociology as well as administrators and policy makers in the international sports community.
India's struggle for independence was arguably the most momentous of the twentieth century, and central to it was the generation of powerful nationalist forces. In a series of detailed studies Anthony Low shows how the ambiguity of the British position conditioned the distinctive character of this struggle: how the British determination to hold fast their Indian empire (unlike the Americans in the Philippines) prior to 1942 was nonetheless complemented by a reluctance to resist their nationalist opponents in the unyielding ways of the French in Vietnam and the Dutch in Indochina. Much that Gandhi did, Professor Low concludes, would have been unnecessary in the Philippines and impossible in Indonesia and Vietnam, but astutely fitted the peculiar conditions of the nationalist struggle against the British in India. Published on the fiftieth anniversary of Indian independence, Britain and Indian Nationalism makes a major contribution to the historiography of modern India, to Britain's relations with its empire, and to the history of decolonisation in the twentieth century.
