SCOOTER MANIA! Recollections of the Isle of Man International Scooter Rally

SCOOTER MANIA! Recollections of the Isle of Man International Scooter Rally

Author: Steve Jackson Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/05/2014

At last! A year-on-year account of the Isle of Man International Scooter Rally, the brainchild of WWI veteran-turned-politician, James Mylchreest Cain. Following a fact-finding mission to Dusseldorf, accompanied by Peter Agg from Lambretta, the second Rally went International for 1958, and was to grow in popularity throughout the 1960s, attracting competitors from countries as far and wide as Australia, USA, Rhodesia, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Poland, Czechoslovakia and India. In addition to gymkhana and endurance events, closed-road and circuit racing attracted fast men such as Neville Frost, John and Norman Ronald, Ray Kemp, Andy Smith, and Norrie Kerr. In 1971, the then chairman of the Tourist Board, Bill Quayle, declared that the annual Scooterist week was the most important cog in the mosaic of Manx tourism. The author's access to personal photographic archives, and Manx Press pictures, combined with period reports and interviews with competitors, builds a unique reconstruction of a hugely successful event on the scootering sporting calendar: an event that was to endure for 20 years and attract thousands of spectators.

FOUR GUYS, A DOG, AND A BOAT... ... and 26,000 miles of high seas between Hong Kong and Miami. THE YEAR WAS 1960. William Holden was the latest cinema heartthrob and his movie "e;The World of Suzie Wong"e; was all the rage. It was also the year four young men hatched a plan to sail halfway around the world. Never mind that they weren't sailors or that one of them couldn't swim. These four young men jumped at the chance to prove something to the world and to themselves. Armed with not much more than a forty-one-foot Sparkman & Stephens wooden sailboat, a Chinese Chow puppy, and all the gumption needed to survive dysentery, monsoons, and equipment failures, Steve, Walter, George, and Paul christened their newly-built vessel the Suzy Wong and set sail for the adventure of a lifetime. "e;Voyage of the Suzy Wong"e; is the true story of four young men who relied on the kindness of strangers, their own resourcefulness, and just plain luck to survive a world-embracing journey and live their dream.

Theorizing Sexuality

Theorizing Sexuality

Author: Steve Jackson, Sue Scott Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/11/2007

This book surveys and evaluates the sociological contribution to the study of sexuality. It not only maps major theoretical shifts and debates, but also offers a unique examination of the topic that emphasises the sociality of sexuality. In particular, it considers the institutional, biographical and interactional contexts of our sexual lives as well as the cultural significance and everyday practice of sexuality.The authors contest not only popular understandings of sexuality as natural, but also psychoanalytic explanations and forms of analysis that privilege the cultural construction of sexuality over its everyday social accomplishment. In particular, they challenge the 'specialness' of sexuality within contemporary culture, arguing that sexuality is better understood as a routine part of everyday social life. The book confronts the anxieties associated with sexuality in the late modern, western world and engages with wider debates on social transformations in late modernity. As such, it provides both an overview of the field of sexuality as well as setting an agenda. Theorizing Sexuality is key reading for students, researchers and academics interested in theories of sexuality, gender and intimacy and anyone concerned with the social conditions that inform our sexual identities.
