After the Civil War, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad took the lead among southern railroads in developing rail systems and organizing transcontinental travel. Through two world wars, federal government control, internal crises, external dissension, the Depression, and the great Ohio River flood of 1937, the L&N Railroad remained one of the country's most efficient lines. It is a southern institution and a railroad buff's dream. When eminent railroad historian Maury Klein's definitive History of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad was first published in 1972, it quickly became one of the most sought after books on railroad history. This new edition both restores a hard-to-find classic to print and provides a new introduction by Klein detailing the L&N's history in the thirty years since the book was first published.

For decades, the banking industry seemed to be a Swiss watch, quietly ticking along. But the recent financial crisis hints at the true nature of this sector. As Simone Polillo reveals in Conservatives Versus Wildcats, conflict is a driving force. Conservative bankers strive to control money by allying themselves with political elites to restrict access to credit. Barriers to credit create social resistance, so rival bankers—wildcats—attempt to subvert the status quo by using money as a tool for breaking existing boundaries. For instance, wildcats may increase the circulation of existing currencies, incorporate new actors in financial markets, or produce altogether new financial instruments to create change. Using examples from the economic and social histories of 19th-century America and Italy, two decentralized polities where challenges to sound banking originated from above and below, this book reveals the collective tactics that conservative bankers devise to legitimize strict boundaries around credit—and the transgressive strategies that wildcat bankers employ in their challenge to this restrictive stance.

How bad was Kansas State football when Bill Snyder took over as head coach? The story goes, once upon a time... if you got caught speeding in Manhattan, you didn't get a speeding ticket--you got a football ticket. If you got caught twice? They made you go to the game. While that may be an exaggeration, it's only a slight one. K-State was the worst college football program in the country and hadn't won a game in two years. Oh, how things have changed. Snyder's Wildcats now are regarded as one of the top programs in the country. The Wildcats are regulars in the national rankings, share the best overall record in Big XII Conference history and own the conference's best record on the road. Through the rise to prominence since Snyder's arrival in 1989, the constant has been change. There have been four athletics directors, five sports information directors, three "Voices of the Wildcats," and well over 30 assistant coaches. But there's been only one color analyst for Wildcat football--Stan Weber. The former K-State starter at safety and quarterback has seen every play of the Bill Snyder era. And who else, besides Snyder himself, can say that? Stroll through the pages of Stan Weber's Tales from the Kansas State Sideline, and learn the stories behind the stories. Weber will tell first-hand experiences of the events that took K-State football from "the outhouse to the penthouse." You'll hear Weber's recollections of some of the great games, like the Wildcats' first victory over Oklahoma in 23 years and the first KSU victory in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 35 years. And, he will share his insights into the personalities of many of K-State's heroes of the Snyder era. Sit back, relax and enjoy StanWeber's Tales from the Kansas State Sideline by Stan Weber with David Smale. Purple attire is required.

The Western Wildcats are in trouble. About the only good thing you could say for their goalkeeper, Smokin (so called because he’s never without a Chupa Chup in his mouth!), is that he’s got a newish pair of gloves. He keeps taking off for the toilet or he’ll go to the canteen or home—right in the middle of a game! But he’s got a lot on his mind, what with his father building a blue and yellow (Go the Eels!) Chinese junk in their backyard and planning to sail off down the local creek and head for Hawaii. So do they really expect Smokin to keep for the entire game? Of course he’s not the only problem: some of Throw-in’s clearances are adding to the rings around Saturn, and Own-goal keeps scoring hat-tricks for the opposing team. Brazilian methods don’t seem to be working so far, but their coach is still trying. Is it any wonder, though, that people are saying the Western Wildcats suck?
