The All-Time Biggest Sports Jerks is short, sweet, and on-point—the skewering and roasting of the biggest hot dogs in baseball, boxing, golf, football, basketball, hockey, auto racing, media, and other fields of athletic play and extended adolescence. With a sardonic sense of humor that is befitting some of the more infamous characters in sports history, this collection is not simply a depressing recital of the pitfalls of the athletic rich and famous, but the careful documenting of the infamous 100 jerks is complemented by the interesting stories, rich anecdotes, weapons-grade one-liners, and stories that focus on some of the oddballs, weirdos, and even the oh-so-few good guys (and gals) in sports history.

The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt is the only book available providing detailed historical coverage of Egypt from the early Stone Age to its incorporation into the Roman Empire. The lively essays and beautiful illustrations portray the emergence and development of the distinctive civilization of the ancient Egyptians covering the period from 700,000 BC to ad 311. The authors - each working at the cutting edge of their particular fields - outline the principal sequence of political events, including detailed examinations of the three so-called Intermediate Periods previously regarded as 'dark ages'. Against the backdrop of the rise and fall of ruling dynasties, this Oxford History also examines cultural and social patterns, including stylistic developments in art and literature. The pace of change in such aspects of Egyptian culture as monumental architecture, funerary beliefs, and ethnicity was not necessarily tied to the rate of political change. Each of the authors has therefore set out to elucidate, in both words and pictures, the underlying patterns of social and political change, and to describe the changing face of ancient Egypt, from the biographical details of individuals to the social and economic factors that shaped the lives of the population as a whole.
