The Spirit of the Game

The spirit of the game was first nurtured on the playing fields of the English public school, and in the pages of Tom Brown's Schooldays- this Corinthian spirit was then exported around the world. The competitive spirit, the importance of fairness, the nobility of the gifted amateur seemed to sum up everything that was good about Britishness and the games they played. Today, sport is dominated by corruption, money, celebrity and players who are willing to dive in the box if it wins them a penalty. Yet, we still believe and talk about the game as if it had a higher moral purpose. Since the age of Thomas Arnold, Sport has been used to glorify dictatorships and was at the heart of cold war diplomacy. Prime Ministers, princes and presidents will do whatever they can to ensure that their country holds a major sporting tournament. Nelson Mandela saw the victory of the Rugby World Cup as essential to his hopes for the Rainbow Nation. Mihir Bose has lived his life around sport and in this book he tells the story of how Sport has lost its original spirit and how it has emerged in the 20th century to become the most powerful political tool in the world. With examples and stories from around the world including how the sport-hating Thomas Arnold become an icon; how a German manufacturer gave Jessie Owens a pair of shoes at the Berlin games of 1936 and went on to dominate the world of sport; how India stole cricket from the ICC; how an Essex car dealer become the most powerful man in Formula 1; and who really sold football out. Praise for Mihir Bose: 'Mihir Bose is India's CLR James.' Simon Barnes, The Times. 'Mihir's insider knowledge is unsurpassed' David Welch. 'His Olympic contacts are second to none. He knows everybody.' Sue Mott.

There is nothing quite like The Spirit of the Game - it defies categories. The book offers a unique personal history of the world, integrating the variety of human endeavorr into a coherent world-view. It covers mathematics, philosophy, science, business and economics, politics, linguistics, and art as well as the ultimate questions of value - human creativity in all its forms. The book presents a penetrating critique of Western culture, warts and all, but the author steers clear of fashionable doomsday scenarios. Instead he foresees a major discontinuity - a new hypercycle - which will amount to an unprecedented challenge for mankind. Never have the threats and the opportunities been so great.

Spirit of the Game

Spirit of the Game In the first book, Spirit of Murder, Stella Blake, a tall, lean, redheaded kick-ass woman was forced to face the truth. This truth rocked Stellas world and nearly sent her over the edge. In Spirit of the Game, she has not yet fully come to terms with this crazy deep secret of her family and still fights the idea of it. No longer a cop now but a private investigator, she still solves cases, kicks ass, and faces danger. Stanley Hughes, her accountants genius brother, is in trouble. He and his friends created a lifelike virtual video crime game. Stupidly they put it online to tweak out some glitches while still in the developmental stage. Suddenly those crimes are being committed for real. Stella has to work hard to keep the police from charging the boys with being accessories to the crimes. Once the murder portion of the game is played out, she comes face-to-face with a spirit. This part of the so-called gift of hers is very difficult for her. George finds out that magic is somehow behind the crimes. He convinces her that the family is needed to help form a plan to save the young game makers while keeping the family secret intact. She begins to find out the family secret has certain rules that must never be broken. She also finds herself suddenly agreeing to be engaged, making her world rock, once more, under her feet. Spirit of Romance Spirit of Romance has Stella waking up to find, to her utter amazement and terrifying fear, that she is engaged. She soon begins to think this engagement is the cause for doubting her natural abilities and figures shed have to find a way to get out of this engagement in order to gain back her natural talents. Stellas new case for Manning Financial eventually becomes linked with the Homicide Division and their five cold cases. While working her case, she discovers that Brad Simon was released from prison by mistake. Now she has to save her friend Debra Styles by stopping Brads killing spree as well as solve her case by carefully sidestepping and going around the police. Piled on top of that, Stella is forced to deal with a very angry and determined ghost bent on seeking revenge on the man who killed her. Rita Cassidy was murdered under Stellas watch. George, his squad, and Stella have some very heated arguments as their cases clash and finally get solved. Strange new feelings grow in her for George. Stella finds herself accepting his help to overcome some of her doubts and fears. Once work settles down, Stella decides the best way to deal with her situation with George is to take her time adjusting to being engaged, but George has other ideas in that area.
