Despite myriad popular and journalistic expositions, up to this point there have been virtually no academic discussions of the Manchester United phenomenon. This anthology represents the first concerted academic examination of Manchester United F.C. in its current guise as a widely followed and highly emblematic sporting institution. Bringing together respected academics from an array of disciplinary backgrounds these essays each interrogate various related dimensions of the Manchester United world. The primary aim of this collection is to illustrate how the structure and experience of Manchester United is implicated in broader societal shifts, within which the boundary between cultural and commercial concerns have become increasingly indivisible. The chapters are presented within five thematic sections: 1 Becoming United 2 Economy United 3 Embodied United 4 Local United 5 Global United

Gerardo Molina explica las variables estratégicas del marketing deportivo como un proceso, de manera simple para comprender la gestión integral de comercialización, aplicada por el gigante de la Premier League de Inglaterra, siendo el auténtico reflejo de la creatividad e innovación permanente en el fútbol mundial.

En 1974, el brillante y controvertido Brian Clough tomó las riendas como entrenador del Leeds United, que la temporada anterior había ganado la Liga liderado por su anterior Míster, Don Revie, el eterno rival de Clough. El fugaz y fatídico periplo de Clough en el Leeds duraría tan solo cuarenta y cuatro días. El relato intercala estas funestas jornadas con la narración de la trepidante trayectoria de un joven Clough, que, tras sufrir una temprana lesión que lo apartó prematuramente de los terrenos de juego y de dirigir al Hartlepool, logró que un Derby County por el que nadie daba un duro fuera campeón de Segunda División en la temporada 1968-1969 y se coronara campeón de Primera en 1972, gesta que convirtió a Clough y a su segundo entrenador, Peter Taylor, en leyendas. Con una prosa adusta y obsesiva que reinventa el "stream of consciousness" joyceano y bebe del particular estilo de Thomas Bernhard, Peace erige el retrato de un hombre enloquecido por una ambición desmedida, iracundo y crápula, despótico y vengativo, que conmocionó y fascinó a partes iguales a los ingleses desde los banquillos, los platós de televisión y las columnas de la prensa deportiva. A partir de un exhaustivo proceso de documentación, Peace reconstruye en esta sobresaliente obra de ficción documentada algunos de los días más aciagos e intensos del fútbol británico. Maldito United está considerada una de las mejores novelas jamás escritas sobre el fútbol.

Six cases of US intervention are highlighted - Guatemala in 1954, Cuba in 1961, the Dominican Republic in 1965, Grenada in 1983, Nicaragua in 1985, and Panama in 1989. In each case the US violated international law and the sovereignty of the states involved, but claimed it had a right to intervene to protect the lives of its nationals or to defend its national security against an external threat. These cases amply demonstrate the conflict between international law on the one hand, and regional norms, power politics and political doctrines on the other. They also illustrate how international law can be manipulated to advance the foreign policy goals of a major power.

The United Nations has been called everything from "the best hope of mankind" to "irrelevant" and "obsolete." With this much-needed introduction to the UN, Jussi Hanhim?ki engages the current debate over the organizations effectiveness as he provides a clear understanding of how it was originally conceived, how it has come to its present form, and how it must confront new challenges in a rapidly changing world. After a brief history of the United Nations and its predecessor, the League of Nations, the author examines the UN's successes and failures as a guardian of international peace and security, as a promoter of human rights, as a protector of international law, and as an engineer of socio-economic development. Hanhim?ki stresses that the UN's greatest problem has been the impossibly wide gap between its ambitions and capabilities. In the area of international security, for instance, the UN has to settle conflicts--be they between or within states--without offending the national sovereignty of its member states, and without being sidelined by strong countries, as happened in the 2003 intervention of Iraq. Hanhim?ki also provides a clear accounting of the UN and its various arms and organizations (such as UNESCO and UNICEF), and he offers a critical overview of how effective it has been in the recent crises in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, for example--and how likely it is to meet its overall goals in the future. The United Nations, Hanhim?ki concludes, is an indispensable organization that has made the world a better place. But it is also a deeply flawed institution, in need of constant reform. About the Series: Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects--from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, Literary Theory to History, and Archaeology to the Bible. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume in this series provides trenchant and provocative--yet always balanced and complete--discussions of the central issues in a given discipline or field. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how the subject has developed and how it has influenced society. Eventually, the series will encompass every major academic discipline, offering all students an accessible and abundant reference library. Whatever the area of study that one deems important or appealing, whatever the topic that fascinates the general reader, the Very Short Introductions series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.

This fully up-dated, third revised edition of Conforti's thought-provoking and challenging textbook, The Law and Practice of the United Nations, provides a comprehensive legal analysis of problems concerning membership, the structure of UN organs, their functions and their acts, taking into consideration the text of the Charter, its historical origins, and, particularly, the practice of the organs. Its main focus is on the practice of the Security Council. In particular the action of the Security Council under Chapter VII has been taken into account. The legal literature on Chapter VII - a literature which has grown enormously in recent times - has also been considered. The fact that the legal aspects of the action or the inaction of the Security Council have been discussed to an unusually large extent by ordinary people at the time of the war against Iraq and even later is worth noting. The importance of the role of the United Nations, and the content of the rules governing it, has become a leitmotiv of all debates on international politics. Consequently, the opinion often held in the past, according to which it was useless to deal with the legal aspects of the United Nations activity, can be considered as obsolete.
