I Think Therefore I Play Paperback – Illustrated, 15 April 2014

UGX 55,000

Pirlo’s profile could not be much higher, having competed in the Champions League final in May 2015 and then embarking on a new career signing with MLS side New York City FC in July 2015. The vibrancy, humor and vivid insight that carry Pirlo’s autobiography along confounds his image as a dead-eyed assassin on the field of play. All the big names are in there: Lippi, Ancelotti, Conte, Maldini, Shevchenko, Seedorf, Buffon, Kaka, Nesta, Costacurta, Gattuso, Berlusconi and Ronaldo (“the real one”). But they’re not always in their work clothes. We hear Berlusconi playing the piano and telling “various types” of joke at Milan’s training ground. We see Pirlo and Daniele De Rossi drawing Nesta’s ire as they take him on a mystery tour of the German countryside in a hire car days before a World Cup semi-final. And we smell the aftermath of Filippo Inzaghi’s graphically described pre-match routine.

  • Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumaism: The Essential Elements of the Ideology for All African People, Those at Home and Those Abroad Paperback

    This work, “Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumaism: The Essential Elements of the Ideology for All African People, Those at Home and Those Abroad”, examines the ideology for African people. An ideology organizes a people, unifies them, and guides them toward collective action in the common pursuit of an objective. The only objective that ensures the complete and permanent liberation of all African people, those at home and those abroad, is Pan-Africanism: a unified, socialist Africa controlled by African people. Nkrumaism is the ideology, the blueprint, that will guide African people and their descendants toward that objective. Nkrumaism takes its name from Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, not because of any hero worship and not because he was the first to articulate a theory of liberation for African people, but because he “synthesized and advanced” the African liberation theory espoused by his Pan-African predecessors. Most importantly, he dedicated himself to ensure that this ideology was put into practice and thus became, unlike anyone before or since him, the foremost practitioner of the ideology for the African Revolution. Based on the history, culture and current reality of African people worldwide, Nkrumaism is “like a light on a dark night showing the way to follow.” This work explores seven essential elements of Nkrumaism: identity, enemy, objective, philosophy, ideology, strategy and tactics. With our understanding of these elements, African people will forge the necessary ideological unity among a majority of our people at home and abroad in order to guarantee the successful building of Pan-Africanism. A Union of African Socialist States (UASS) is not only possible; it’s on the horizon! Forward ever, Backward never!

  • I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic Paperback – 5 September 2013 by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Author)

    I AM ZLATAN – the explosive, critically-acclaimed memoir of Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the world’s most gifted and controversial footballers

    ‘Why be a Fiat when you can be a Ferrari?’

    Welcome to planet Zlatan. This is the story of how a Swedish immigrant rose from poverty to become a football genius.

    In his own inimitable style, Zlatan recalls every struggle, every goal, and every training ground bust-up on his journey to dominate the world’s top clubs, including Barcelona, PSG and now Manchester United.

    Full of wicked one-liners and amazing stories, Zlatan lifts the lid on some of the biggest names in football, including Guardiola, Messi and his new manager, Jose Mourinho.

    Moving, funny and totally frank, I am Zlatan is unlike any autobiography you have ever read.

    ‘Wonderful – nothing less than a revelation. Ibrahimovic is the definitive modern sporting icon’ – Matthew Syed

    ‘The best sportsman’s memoir since Andre Agassi… not just a bad boy’s romp but the rise of a boy from the ghetto to the top of his profession and captain of his country. He is candid, funny and yes, wonderfully nuts’ – The Times

    ‘There’s never a dull moment on Planet Zlatan. This is a snarling, fizzing, unrepentant firecracker of a book; if footballers’ memoirs bore you, make an exception for this one’ – Independent

  • Kwame Nkrumah: The Father of African Nationalism Paperback – 15 December 1998 by Professor David Birmingham (Author)

    The first African statesman to achieve world recognition was Kwame Nkrumah (1909-1972), who became president of the new Republic of Ghana in 1960. He campaigned ceaselessly for African solidarity and for the liberation of southern Africa from white settler rule. His greatest achievement was to win the right of black peoples in Africa to have a vote and to determine their own destiny.

    He turned a dream of liberation into a political reality. He was the leader of Ghana who urged Africa to shed the colonial yoke and who inspired black people everywhere to seek their freedom.

    This revised edition of Birmingham’s fine and accessible biography chronicles the public accomplishments of this extraordinary leader, who faced some of the century’s most challenging political struggles over colonial transition. African nationalism, and pan-Africanism. It also relates some of the personal trials of a complex individual.

    As a student in America in the late 1930s, Nkrumah, shy, disorganized, but ambitious and persistent, earned four degrees in ten years. For political training he then went to England. Nkrumah found writing difficult throughout his lifetime, but once back in his African homeland, with its oral heritage, Nkrumah blossomed as a charming conversationalist, a speechmaker, and eventually a visionary and inspiring leader.

    Nkrumah’s crusades were controversial, however, and in the 1960s he gradually lost his heroic stature both among his own people and among his fellow leaders. He lived his last years in exile.

    This remarkable life story, which touches on many of the issues facing modern Africa, will open a window of understanding for the general leader as well as for graduate and undergraduate classes.

    In this new edition, Birmingham also examines Nkrumah’s exile and provides insight into the image of Nkrumah that has emerged in the light of research recently published.
