In this fascinating analysis of the development, structure, and strategies of sports, Bell argues that games are an institution that not only reflect society but also mold society. He develops a typology of seven game levels from the primitive to the decadent and examines the history of game development in Western civilization, through the relation of the various game levels to national ambitions and strategies. To Play the Game is both enlightening and entertaining, an original contribution to the growing scholarship on sports.

WHY PLAY THE HIGH STAKES GAME OF SCHOOL? "In this must-read book, Robert Fried shows us that playing the game of school day after day is an intolerable waste of time, and while we are told it will lead to a decent paying job, it actually stupefies us for life's challenges—including being a decent citizen. He shows why we simply cannot keep doing this to our intellectually feisty youngsters, or to their teachers. Fried has it right in theory and detail, and he shows us, in his lively, poignant, often funny stories from the field, how teachers, parents, and, yes, kids, too, can begin to change this dreadful and unnecessary game." —DEBORAH MEIER, founding principal and director, New Ventures, Mission Hill School "This critically important book plumbs the depths of productive vs. unproductive learning and finds a seemingly normal, yet insidious, 'game' at its core. Our schools' failure to engage young minds is explained through vivid portraits of teachers who buck the trend. Fried is not a nihilist who sees only the dark side. Far from it. He has the courage to describe the Game of School such that readers can accept the metaphor as a tool without which educational reform will continue to be ineffectual." —SEYMOUR B. SARASON, professor of psychology emeritus, Yale University and author of And What Do You Mean by Learning?

Louise L. Hay, whose writings and talks have brought inspiration, hope, and healing to millions of people around the world, credits The Game of Life (and the entire body of work by Florence Scovel Shinn) for inspiring her at a key turning point in her early career. Shinn was one of the gifted teachers who profoundly shaped the field of personal transformation and spiritual growth. Her writings are known for their clarity, simplicity, and power. In addition to the original text of the book, included within is a new interpretation of this transformational classic, titled The Game of Life for Women. This second part of the book speaks directly to women about how to own their true power. At the same time, however, it speaks to men who wish to not only understand the women around them, but also embrace their own power by tapping in to the universal principles beneath gender differences. Whether male or female, you will likely reach a similar conclusion: It is a book for the ages, to be treasured and studied and taken to heart.

The Well Played Game

The return of a classic book about games and play that illuminates the relationship between the well-played game and the well-lived life. In The Well-Played Game, games guru Bernard De Koven explores the interaction of play and games, offering players—as well as game designers, educators, and scholars—a guide to how games work. De Koven's classic treatise on how human beings play together, first published in 1978, investigates many issues newly resonant in the era of video and computer games, including social gameplay and player modification. The digital game industry, now moving beyond its emphasis on graphic techniques to focus on player interaction, has much to learn from The Well-Played Game. De Koven explains that when players congratulate each other on a “well-played” game, they are expressing a unique and profound synthesis that combines the concepts of play (with its associations of playfulness and fun) and game (with its associations of rule-following). This, he tells us, yields a larger concept: the experience and expression of excellence. De Koven—affectionately and appreciatively hailed by Eric Zimmerman as “our shaman of play”—explores the experience of a well-played game, how we share it, and how we can experience it again; issues of cheating, fairness, keeping score, changing old games (why not change the rules in pursuit of new ways to play?), and making up new games; playing for keeps; and winning. His book belongs on the bookshelves of players who want to find a game in which they can play well, who are looking for others with whom they can play well, and who have discovered the relationship between the well-played game and the well-lived life.

A highly entertaining anthology drawn from the writings of the founder of the Scout movement, originally published to tie-in with the yearlong celebrations of the centenary of scouting, now available in paperbackDrawing on Baden-Powell's extensive archive, Playing the Game is a rich and evocative selection of his writings, on peace - a major theme throughout his career and the theme of the 2007 centenary celebrations, on his own life, from his wonderfull idiosyncratic anecdotal autobiography and includes a healthy sprinkling of some of BP's more memorable aphorisms, such as 'I don't mind confessing I have a weakness for hippos' and 'The man who holds the average boy's attention for more than seven minutes is a genius', not to mention 'Knowledge without character is mere pie-crust'. Imbued with a strong sense of the splendour and the old-school Empire feel of Baden-Powell's work, Playing the Game offers a dazzling window into a world that's gone, but whose legacy remains alive, not least in the 28 million members of the Scouts Association
