Me and My Dad: A Baseball Memoir
Me and My Dad: A Baseball
Paul O'Neill was the undisputed heart and soul of the four-time World Series–winning New York Yankees from 1993 to 2001. A champion and an icon, he was a dedicated, intense athlete who not only wore the trademark pinstripes with pride, he bled blue and white. O'Neill epitomized the team's motto of hard work and good sportsmanship, traits instilled in him by the man who was his friend, confidant, lifelong model, and biggest fan: his dad, Chick O'Neill.Paul O'Neill has rarely spoken publicly about the significant role his father played in his baseball career. But now, in Me and My Dad, he speaks from the heart about the man who inspired in him a love for the game and a determination to always play his best. For some, baseball is more than a game -- it's a way of life. Chick O'Neill was one of those people. Paul recounts how his father, after serving as a paratrooper in World War II, pitched in the California minor league, until he discovered that his true passion was his family. Later he was devoted to his son's dream of becoming a professional ball player and was always there -- from coaching Little League to being in the stadium when Paul played for the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees.In Me and My Dad, Paul also remembers the highlights of his amazing career: being cal...

The Culture of Curating and the Curating of
How curating has changed art and how art has changed curating: an examination of the emergence contemporary curatorship.Once considered a mere caretaker for collections, the curator is now widely viewed as a globally connected auteur. Over the last twenty-five years, as international group exhibitions and biennials have become the dominant mode of presenting contemporary art to the public, curatorship has begun to be perceived as a constellation of creative activities not unlike artistic praxis. The curator has gone from being a behind-the-scenes organizer and selector to a visible, centrally important cultural producer. In The Culture of Curating and the Curating of Culture(s), Paul O'Neill examines the emergence of independent curatorship and the discourse that helped to establish it.O'Neill describes how, by the 1980s, curated group exhibitions―large-scale, temporary projects with artworks cast as illustrative fragments―came to be understood as the creative work of curator-auteurs. The proliferation of new biennials and other large international exhibitions in the 1990s created a cohort of high-profile, globally mobile curators, moving from Venice to Paris to Kassel. In the 1990s, curatorial and artistic practice converged, blurring the distinction between artist and curat...

How the Yankees Explain New York (How...Explain)
How the Yankees Explain New York
An examination of the unique parallels between New York City’s evolution and that of the New York Yankees, How the Yankees Explain New York illustrates how the storied history of the Bronx Bombers mirrors that of the Big Apple itself. The oldest professional sports franchise in the city, the Yankees have played in front of sold out crowds in the Bronx for nearly a century, and this work explores the relationship between Wall Street high-rollers and the Yankees’ record-setting payroll, describes the “city that never sleeps” through the nighttime antics of Mickey Mantle and Billy Martin, revisits the healing effect of the Yankees’ World Series run in the aftermath of 9/11, and much more. Entertaining and insightful, this book is sure to be popular amongst one of sports’ most passionate fan bases.

Red Rebels: The Glazers and the FC Revolution
Red Rebels: The Glazers and the FC
In 2004, Manchester United was the richest football club in the world, with global commercial success to match its dominance on the pitch. By the end of 2005 the club had been plunged into record levels of debt, as Malcolm Glazer took over and used it as an asset to secure huge loans. To this day, the debt is estimated to be well in excess of £300m.The fans were furious. It was an insult to the achievements of their magnificent club – to the traditions and heritage that United represented. But whilst they were largely unified in concern, one group took matters a step further. They were soon christened the Red Rebels by Manchester Evening News. As the club they loved was being stripped from them, they walked away to build their own – a decision which tore Manchester United's fan base apart and caused ructions that continue to this day.This is the story of FC United of Manchester, the new club born out of a supporter revolution. It is a club built against all odds, with a transparent manifesto designed to protect their passionate fans. But, as generations that have gone before will testify, football today is a very different game. How long can a modern British club stay true to its principles? And in a noble attempt to do so, could it ultimately tear itself apart?
