Winner of The Times British Sports Book Award 2014. A fascinating insight into the enclosed world of football scouts in the UK A teenaged boy plays football in a suburban park. His name is Raheem Sterling. The call is made: “Get down here quick. This is something special”. Another boy is 8, going on 28. His name is Jack Wilshere. The referee, an Arsenal scout, spirits him away from Luton Town. A young goalkeeper struggles on loan at Cheltenham Town in League Two. His name is Jack Butland. Within months he will be playing for England. Welcome to football’s hidden tribe. Scouts are everywhere yet nowhere, faceless and nameless, despite making the informed decisions worth millions. Award-winning sportswriter Michael Calvin opens up their hidden world, examining their disconnected lifestyles, petty betrayals and unconsidered professionalism of men who spend long, lonely hours on the road.

This book is an anthology that deals with the problems and challenges of contemporary Indian education. This volume has 20 essays by eminent persons that discuss child-oriented ideas regarding curricula, books and the learning processes. Many writers in this book speak from a lifetime of engagement with education about issues as varied as globalisation and its impact on education to the importance of educational methods that do not discriminate between boys and girls, the disabled and the non-disabled, the rich and the poor. This book does not aim to merely report current educational research and pertinently, seeks to promote debate on difficult issues confronting us in education.

For there was a time during the 20th century after Joshua of Nazareth, where the Evil Empires the United States of America and the Soviet Union had conquered the world and enslaved humanity. (1) For there was a day, where 300 millions of children who had died from hunger during the cruel Cold War came before the Holy Sages. (2) For there was a day, when the Holy and the Wise, the spiritual Lords of Humanity took compassion with the starving and the dying children of the world. Alas, alas the holy sages invoked the justice of the Gods.
