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.


Arbitration Under International Investment Agreements

RRP $349.95

Investor-state arbitration is a relatively new dispute settlement mechanism that allows foreign investors the opportunity to seek redress for damages arising out of breaches of investment-related treaty obligations by the governments of host countries. Claims are submitted to independent, international arbitration tribunals, which are called upon to interpret the treaty at hand. Because of the public interest involved in these cases, the awards of these tribunals are subject to much scrutiny and debate. Thus, it has already generated hundreds of cases and created new legal disciplines, inspiring a continuous string of legal writings.

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the main issues that arise in investor-state arbitration. It accompanies the reader through the phases of such a procedure, starting with an examination of the instruments, which provide, in the overwhelming majority of the cases, the legal basis for the requests for such arbitration. It then continues with the launching of the arbitration procedure, followed by the analysis of the main jurisdictional and substantive issues that the tribunals are confronted with, and the review procedures, when there is a request for setting aside of the award. It finally looks at the post-award phase and concludes with a reflection on the role of precedent in investment arbitration.

Arbitration under International Investment Agreements: a Guide to the Key Issues contains in one volume what everybody needs to know on this evolving topic. Calling on the most renowned experts in this field, private practitioners, academics, government and international organization officials, it describes the process in all its phases from A to Z, providing a comprehensive insight in the way investor-state arbitration works from the perspective of the main actors involved. Its analyses of all key aspects of the topic are pragmatic and reliable.

'The clubs epidemic breaks out in March like a giant nit plague. It spreads through our class 'til practically everyone's infected. Not me. I must be inoculated.'
Lolly Leopold has a divine teacher called Ms Love. She has a cat called Laughing Stock but he won't qualify her for membership of the Kitten Club. The Harry Potter Club excludes girls, the Lego Club's too violent and she's disdainful of the Barbie Club beauty contests. Will Lolly find a Club to truly belong to?
Clubs was the Book of the Year and Picture Book of the Year in the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, 2005.
'The wonderful homemade illustrations and text of Clubs describe perfectly the tough, complicated world of primary school, and Lolly's spunk and intelligence give hope to lonely kids everywhere. I love this book. I wish I'd had Ms Love for my teacher.' - Alison Lester
'Pure brilliance' - John McIntyre, Radio New Zealand
'Jacqui Colley's pictures are a revelation ... something of the flavour of Lauren Child but more sophisticated. The news that it's the first of a series is very, very welcome.' - David Larsen, New Zealand Listener
