Blinded in one eye by a childhood incident, his tormentors called him 'One Eye' or 'Cyclops'; it could have instilled a victim mentality in him, but instead he became a fighter. One by one, those who tormented him would get their comeuppance . . .In his turbulent teenage years, 'Baz' adopted a criminal lifestyle. He went from Rude Boy to Casual and became a leading figure in Birmingham City FC's Zulu Warriors. When not training in martial arts or proving himself as a cage fighter, he also cut a powerful figure in Coventry's clubland where he ran its toughest doors. For all his ferocious reputation, ONE-EYED BAZ reveals a character of great warmth and loyalty, a charismatic figure strong enough to embrace the combat sport of cage fighting and prove himself 'King of the Ring'. ONE-EYED BAZ will surely be lauded as a classic of the hard-man genre.'BARRINGTON IS STILL A PREDATOR, YOU CAN'T REALLY TAME A LION.' - DEV BARRETT - FORMER WORLD W.A.K.O. FULL-CONTACT KARATE CHAMPION.'A LOT OF THE TIME PEOPLE WOULD COME DOWN FOR BARRINGTON WITH WEAPONS AND HE WOULD TAKE THE WEAPON OFF THEM AND BEAT THEM. DON'T GET ME WRONG: HE'S A LOVELY GUY AND HE'S GOT A BIG HEART AND HE'S A VERY GOOD FRIEND TO HAVE. BUT HE'S A VERY, VERY BAD ENEMY TO HAVE.' - TODD - BIRMINGHAM ZULUS

Book Two in the Black Flagged Series A tense alliance between General Sanderson and the CIA narrowly averts an apocalyptic attack by Islamic fundamentalists in Europe, but ultimately fails to recover the virus canisters. With the biological weapons still missing, the specter of an attack against the United States looms dangerously closer. Desperate to stop Al Qaeda, Daniel Petrovich's "black ops" team is sent to investigate the last lead provided by Anatoly Reznikov, the twisted scientist responsible for designing the virus. What they uncover will shake U.S. authorities to the core. Every canister of the Zulu Virus has been shipped to the United States... Back in Washington D.C., this startling revelation is intensified by a grim discovery.

When Special Agent in Charge Ryan Sharpe discovers that Al Qaeda lost possession of every virus canisters in the coordinated attack, he deploys Task Force Scorpion to hunt down a new breed of terrorist and recover the virus. As Sharpe's task force unravels the curious fabric of True America's plot, they start to assemble the chilling details of an impending domestic bioweapons attack--on an unimaginable scale. With time expiring, and his task force running out of options, Sharpe embraces the illicit help of a sworn enemy, whose questionable tactics may be their only chance of stopping an insidious plan to destabilize the United States.

She finds love with Gavin, the handsome first mate, and when they first consummate their love, unbeknownst to them, a family prophecy is fulfilled; a prophecy that holds captive, a family of women who are the keepers of the souls. Terrance, the Captain of the Pegasus, fell in love with Sybil Chandler the first moment he saw her seventeen years before. His mission was to take Sybil and Jillian with him to live as a family. But, when Sybil refused to come, he was left with no choice but to leave without her and take only Jillian. Little did he know that his actions would not only change his life but cause a chain of events that would guide them all on a voyage of enchantment and danger. Evil finds its way into their lives.

The Zulu Army of Birimigham City occupies a unique place in the annals of terrace violence: Britain's biggest multi-racial football firm. BBC Journalist Caroline Gall was granted unprecedented access to the gang and spent a year interviewing Zulu leaders and footsoldiers. She traces how they emerged from a shadowy group called the Apex on the St Andrew's terraces to become one of the "top five" mobs in the country, uncovers their role in some of the worst football-related riots of modern times and looks in-depth at Operation Red Card, the successful police operation against them. Gall also traces the emergence of offshoot gangs such as the Junior Business Boys and chronicles some of their major confrontations, culminating in the infamous Battle Of Rocky Lane.

Years ago, I met a friend in London I had not seen in many years. He posed a very interesting question to me. He wanted me to give him a statement on Jomo Kenyatta, who was then incarcerated as the leader of the Mau-Mau uprising in Kenya. Though I did not have an answer for my friend, I kept his question in my mind. Then, years later, my wife and I decided to visit Kenya on Safari with friends, which I recount here, vividly in this book. They were like two birds set free, hoop the coop, flew away from their prison abode, caged for decades, until Februrary 1990, on that sunny day in Capetown when I saw Nelson Mandella, live on CNN Television with his wife Winnie Mandela. They strolled through the gates of pollsmore Prison, away from 37 years of incarceration by the Apartheid Regime. That experience intrigued me enough that my wife and I decided, with a group of friends, to visit South Africa and see what would happen to us as a group of African Americans; it was while there that I touched yellow, Ebony Gold, as detailed in my book.

"Omudile muua ohapo; epangelo liua ohamba". Freely translated, this proverb of the Ovakwanyama of northern Namibia means: "New leaves produce a good shade; the laws of a king are always as good as new". The proverb paints a picture of wisdom to express the dialectical relationship between continuity and change in customary law. Since royal orders are supposed not to change from one king to the next, they are always as good as new, reads the explanatory note to the proverb by the anthropologist Loeb, who recorded the proverb. Traditional authority is like a tree standing on its roots, rooted in the tradition created by the ancestors of the ruler and the community. These roots remain firm, stable and unchanged, not so the concrete manifestation of authority that changes and responds to changes of the environment. This makes that new leaves are produced by the rooted tree. The new leaves are new and old. They are old, because in structure, colour and their capacity to protect by giving shade, they are more or less like the leaves of last year and the year before; they are new because they react to the challenge of seasons. The Shade of New Leaves emerged out of an international conference on the living reality of customary law and traditional governance held in Windhoek in 2004. The conference was organised by the Centre for Applied Social Sciences and the Human Rights and Documentation Centre, both affiliated to the Faculty of Law of the University of Namibia, in co-operation with the Law Departments of the Universities of Bremen, Germany, and the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. The contributions to this book are grouped into six parts: Part 1: Legal pluralism, traditional governance and the challenge of the democratic constitutional order * Part 2: Traditional administration of justice revisited * Part 3: Ascertaining customary law: prerequisite of good governance in traditional authority * Part 4: Legal philosophy, African philosophy and African jurisprudence * Part 5: Research, training and teaching of customary law * Part 6: Afterthoughts

"The work should be of use to botanists, chemists, ethnopharmacologists, medical workers and anthropologists. Recent research indicates that Zulu traditional medicine is a working, adaptive and self-monitoring system, eminently worthy of further research. With the flora from which it comes, it is a heritage to be highly valued and conserved."--BOOK JACKET.
