Martin Luther King’s classic exploration of the events and forces behind the Civil Rights Movement–including his Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963. “There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no longer willing to be plunged into the abyss of despair.” In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, was perhaps the most racially segregated city in the United States. The campaign launched by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Civil Rights movement on the segregated streets of Birmingham demonstrated to the world the power of nonviolent direct action. In this remarkable book–winner of the Nobel Peace Prize–Dr. King recounts the story of Birmingham in vivid detail, tracing the history of the struggle for civil rights back to its beginnings three centuries ago and looking to the future, assessing the work to be done beyond Birmingham to bring about full equality for African Americans. Above all, Dr. King offers an eloquent and penetrating analysis of the events and pressures that propelled the Civil Rights movement from lunch counter sit-ins and prayer marches to the forefront of American consciousness. Since its publication in the 1960s, Why We Can’t Wait has become an indisputable classic. Now, more than ever, it is an enduring testament to the wise and courageous vision of Martin Luther King, Jr. Includes photographs and an Afterword by Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr

  • The Innocent Man : Murder and Injustice in a Small Town


    In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Ron’s home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death–in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a man’s already broken life…and let a true killer go free. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with eleventh-hour drama, John Grisham’s first work of nonfiction reads like a page-turning legal thriller. It is a book that will terrify anyone who believes in the presumption of innocence–a book no American can afford to miss.

  • 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
