Coming from a football family I didn't realise the huge gulf between the preening primadonnas and big money of the modern game of football, and the more gentleman's game of rugby football. Every game I watch reinforces that it's all about the game - not the hype around it. It has been a delight to publish the re-release of 'Rugby Football in the Nineteenth Century' originally published by the Isthmian Library back in the late 1800s when Rugby split...

With over thirty authors in our stable we have a real mix of the academic, the businessperson, the philanthropist and the storyteller. In a decade that will be dominated by online (only one large physical bookstore chain left now in the UK following the demise of Borders) there has never been a greater opportunity for the author to use their book as a marketing tool - for their own name as brand or their company brand. There is much talk about 'the author being the brand' and there is a lot of truth in that though there is plenty of...
