Tim Blanning depicts the lives of ordinary people and the dominant personalities of the age (Louis XIV, Frederick the Great, Napoleon), and explores an era of almost unprecedented change, growth and cultural, political and technological ferment that shaped the societies and economies of entire countries.

Bradley Wiggins is a British sporting legend. Not only has he won seven World Track Championships and a record-equalling seven Olympic medals, including double-gold in Beijing in 2008 and gold in the time trial in London in 2012, he is the first Briton to have won cycling's ultimate prize, the Tour de France. He is an immensely talented and dedicated endurance athlete with a gritty, down-to-earth persona - cool, outspoken, respected, inspiring - and he has helped to bring track and road cycling to a new audience in the UK. With new material by Brendan Gallagher, co-author of the original edition, this is the story of a boy with bikes in his blood, of a son abandoned by his father and of the journey from council estate to the very pinnacle of the sport.

The Oil and the Glory

Remote, forbidding, and volatile, the Caspian Sea long tantalized the world with its vast oil reserves. But outsiders, blocked by the closed Soviet system, couldn’t get to it. Then the Soviet Union collapsed, and a wholesale rush into the region erupted. Along with oilmen, representatives of the world’s leading nations flocked to the Caspian for a share of the thirty billion barrels of proven oil reserves at stake, and a tense geopolitical struggle began. The main players were Moscow and Washington–the former seeking to retain control of its satellite states, and the latter intent on dislodging Russia to the benefit of the West. The Oil and the Glory is the gripping account of this latest phase in the epochal struggle for control of the earth’s “black gold.” Steve LeVine, who was based in the region for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Newsweek, weaves an astonishing tale of high-stakes political gamesmanship, greed, and scandal, set in one of the most opaque corners of the world. In LeVine’s telling, the world’s energy giants jockey for position in the rich Kazakh and Azeri oilfields, while superpowers seek to gain a strategic foothold in the region and to keep each other in check. At the heart of the story is the contest to build and operate energy pipelines out of the landlocked region, the key to controlling the Caspian and its oil. The oil pipeline that resulted, the longest in the world, is among Washington’s greatest foreign policy triumphs in at least a decade and a half. Along the way, LeVine introduces such players as James Giffen, an American moneyman who was also the political “fixer” for oil companies eager to do business on the Caspian and the broker for Kazakhstan’s president and ministers; John Deuss, the flamboyant Dutch oil trader who won big but lost even bigger; Heydar Aliyev, the oft-misunderstood Azeri president who transcended his past as a Soviet Politburo member and masterminded a scheme to loosen Russian control over its former colonies in the Caspian region; and all manner of rogues, adventurers, and others drawn by the irresistible pull of untold riches and the possible “final frontier” of the fossil-fuel era. The broader story is of the geopolitical questions of the Caspian oil bonanza, such as whether Russia can be a trusted ally and trading partner with the West, and what Washington’s entry into this important but chaotic region will mean for its long-term stability. In an intense and suspenseful narrative, The Oil and the Glory is the definitive chronicle of events that are understood by few, but whose political and economic impact will be both profound and lasting.

Do you desire a deeper worship encounter with God ? then The Relentless Pursuit of the Glory of God is a must read. Today there's a lot of talk about the glory of God when the truth is, most people are not really ready for a real sovereign encounter with God because of the selfless sacrifice it will cost them. True contenders of God's presence will always discover the high cost of pursuing heaven's atmosphere. Many want to conquer the heavens but have not yet learned to be spiritually disciplined and conquer areas in their own lives.The price of glory is of great value. When God manifests his wonders then sustaining the experience will require sacrifice, commitment and great brokenness. Brokenness is the condition of being completely subdued and humbled before the Lord, completely yielded to Him

In Pursuit of His Glory is a journey into Gods plan to restore His glory to the temple in this end time hour. Is the glory of God the answer to the question of how God will birth end time revival? Has he promised that the end time glory will exceed the former glory experienced in the Old Testament temple? Could national revival be birthed in a single day? Is it possible that man will once again hear the audible voice of God? In this book, we will explore these possibilities as we endeavor to birth within each reader a fresh and renewed hunger for the manifest presence of the Lord. Since he personally experienced the presence of Gods glory, Pastor Hurst has been on a quest to once again enter this most holy place. His quest was heightened in January of 2003 after he experienced a most unusual visitation from the Holy Spirit.

Originally preached as part of a 40-sermon series shortly before his death, Jesus, Our Man in Glory, by A. W. Tozer covers the first half of the book of Hebrews. Tozer told his congregation in Chicago before preaching this series that he would show the eternal glories of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in every message, and after reading this book and its follow up volume, Jesus, Author of Our Faith, you will likely feel that A. W. Tozer accomplished what he said he would. These first twelve messages show how Christ is glorified and exemplified in all things and now sits at the right hand of His Father. Each chapter is about glory and role of Jesus in the book of Hebrews, as we see in this listing of the chapters: Jesus, Our Man in Glory Jesus, God's Final Revelation Jesus, Heir of All Things Jesus, God's Express Image Jesus, Lord of the Angels Jesus, Standard of Righteousness Jesus, the Eternal Word Jesus, Keeper of God's Promises Jesus, Like Unto Melchizedek Jesus, One Face of One God Jesus, Mediator of the New Will Jesus, Fulfillment of the Shadow

In warfare God wants His people to move strategically and not haphazardly. Having the knowledge of Christ, but denying His power is like electricity that powers a house being cut loose and its power becoming deadly to everyone it meets. The house still has its power, but the power cannot effectively be used for its purpose, because it lacks direction. Every situation in our lives can have a beneficial end and if we use strategy to overcome the trials of life by functioning skillfully, it's possible to actually miss the bumps in the road, but moving haphazardly we are sure to be snared in every one of them. Elder Sarina D. Hardison is a single mother of one son who was called to the ministry at the age of twenty-three. In August of 2003, she was ordained as an Elder of Works of Deliverance Fellowship International Ministries in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. She was later ordained as Associate Pastor. Elder Hardison is determined to please the Lord in all that she does, and by writing this book she is hoping to impact the lives of many by encouraging them to follow the Father no matter what the cost.

"[A] beautifully written novel that depicts the true conflict men and women feel when they are serving our country, protecting us while they are breaking inside. Heartfelt and brilliantly written." - Rabia Tanveer for Reader's Favorite Jack Keller had never in his entire life been farther than fifty miles from the small mining town of Gilmore, Idaho. For twenty-one years it was all that he had known. But now the Spaniards have sunk the USS Maine in Havana Harbor and America is going to get even. Teddy Roosevelt is looking for volunteers - Rough Riders they are called. Jack's mundane life of hauling ore with his father pales in comparison to the promise of adventure--a temptation that he can't resist. But, as he soon finds out, it is a decision with consequences he'd never even imagined. Then again, young men in search of glory don't always think straight.

It began in November 1896 when football was still in its infancy. About 500 people turned out on a soggy field in Worcester, Massachusetts to watch Holy Cross battler Boston College. That game initiated one of the great rivalries in football history. Itinvolved some of the most famous players and coaches to ever step on a football field. In its 91 years, the rivalry spawned controversy, contention, fierce competitiveness, elation, gloom, and great moments. It was also linked to heart-breaking tragedy. In the end, the rivalry of the two Jesuit colleges, Boston college and Holy Cross, would prove to be a microcosm of intercollegiate sports.
