"Drawing on a history of both literary and visual representations of Fortune, Elizabeth Campbell argues that Dickens's contribution to both the iconographic and narrative traditions was to fuse the classical image of the wheel with the industrial one. Campbell's close reading of Dickens reveals that, as the wheel was increasingly identified as the official Victorian symbol for British industrial and economic progress, he reacted by employing this icon to represent a more pessimistic historical vision - as the tragic symbol for human fate in the nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.
Football in Fiction represents the most comprehensive historical mapping and analysis of novels related to association football (soccer). It offers a theoretically informed field guide, a scholarly cartography of football fiction’s uncertain – and until now – only partially explored terrain. Combining an extensive search for texts with up-to-date academic research, journals, surveys, catalogues, and reviews the book demonstrates a topographic perspective of the field – one that captures and establishes its breadth, depth, and distinctive identity. The book uses and adapts two distinct reading models of abstraction, in conjunction with closer textual analyses. Together they assist in realising a set of demonstrable conventions, outline a taxonomy of fictive types, establish the genre’s current state of play, and advance the football novel as a form with its own literary history and traditions. This book is a valuable resource for those studying and researching in the areas of the social and cultural aspects of football, sports fiction, sports writing, creative writing, and literary and genre studies. Furthermore, related industry professionals will find this a fascinating read, particularly football writers, fans of the sport, and those interested in sports history and cultural phenomena.

The true story of how Adolf Hitler amassed billions of dollars in wealth, where that money went—and who may be trying to find it for themselves. In 1918 Adolf Hitler was penniless. But within twenty-five years he was probably the richest man in Europe. In this fascinating book, Cris Whetton reveals not only the extent of Hitler’s fortune but how it was amassed and those who helped him. As Whetton demonstrates, the royalties from his book, Mein Kampf, were only a small fraction of the total fortune Hitler possessed before World War II began. Whetton delves into the finances of Hitler’s publishing company Eher Verlag, and his fund Adolf Hitler Spende, to which many people ‘voluntarily’ contributed, as well as newly uncovered evidence of two of Hitler’s personal bank accounts. Also explored is how Hitler’s personal force, magnetism, and attraction to the opposite sex also proved hugely lucrative. Hitler’s Fortune also follows what happened to the property, the funds, the art collection, and other items after the Fuhrer’s suicide in 1945, and reveals who is—and who is trying to—profit in modern times from the evil legacy of Adolf Hitler.
