Lifting the Cup : the story of battling Barnsley, 1910-12 by Mark Metcalf( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first detailed account of Barnsley Football Club's most illustrious and successful period. Between 1910 and 1912 'Battling Barnsley' won their way through to the FA Cup Final, then the most prestigious football tournament in the world, on not one but two occasions and capped things off by beating West Bromwich Albion in the 1912 final replay at Bramall Lane, Sheffield, when Arthur Fairclough 'lifted the Cup' for the only time, so far, in the Club's long history. This centenary celebration brings the 1910-12 era back to life through match reports, and a wealth of photographs (some never seen before) and memorabilia. It also pays tribute to the extraordinary support of thousands of Barnsley fans. Against a background of major social and political change, this book also examines the careers of legendary players such as Dickie Downs, Bob Glendenning, Wilf Bartrop, Tommy Boyle, George Utley, George Lillycrop - and of course the goal-scoring hero of 1912: the great Harry Tufnell

Over the brink : homeless families in Los Angeles by David Wood( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines homeless families, isolates similarities and differences between homeless and poor but stably-housed families, identifies paths along which families slide into homelessness, and recommends policy changes. The report uses a body of data collected in 1987-1988 on two groups of poor families in Los Angeles (California) half of whom were stably-housed welfare (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) recipients and the other half of whom were currently homeless. The sample consisted of approximately 400 families each with at least a mother and 1 child. Following an introduction in Section I, Section ii compares and contrasts the homeless and stably-housed poor families. In Section iii, the study uses multivariate statistical techniques to address the question of why some poor people become homeless while others remain stably housed. An effort was made to reconstruct the "paths" by which families became homeless. Section iv discusses the policy implications of the findings and suggests several legislative measures to address the plight of homeless families in California. Appendices contain a description of the study design; a summary of the univariate analysis, multivariate analysis, and logistic regression conducted; results of the logistic regression; summary statistics; and an outline of the 1989 homeless-related legislation. Included are 16 tables, 12 figures, and a 72-item bibliography. (Jb)
