The Throw-In: The Gaa and the Men Who Made It



Completed in 1947 when the author was but thirty - it's a young man's book he acknowledges in the pre The title of this book is a touch misleading - what Hofstadter actually put together was twelve essays on American politicians - all but one of whom held office - who were present during various instrumental periods in American history, and endeavored to leap astride. Sometimes you just have to throw yourselves on the gears of power, right?. Since the book is over a half-century old, it is in every way dated. Still, Hofstadter's writing ripens with age and his ability to interweave dismissive witticisms with lucid insight is a skill only the most talented writers of nonfiction ever perfect. Doubtless, there are more modern books that fulfill the same role as this one, but equally doubtless, they are far less sagacious.

Bodies lie on both sides of the road and the Scottish Missionaries bury them.

Borman’s book delivers an excellent example of such a study. She follows Henry from birth to death, and the effect of shifting the spotlight once again produces an arrestingly different portrait of the king and his reign, perhaps more different even than Borman herself sees at times. At the onset of her book, she tells readers that the men in Henry’s life shaped Henry into the man - the monster - that he would become, but despite her obvious openness to this possibility, Henry-as-monster makes comparatively few appearances in this narrative

Long ago Horace White observed that the Constitution of the United States is based upon the philosophy of Hobbes and the religion of Calvin.

An exception can now be made in the case of a blood substitute being necessary. A standard hurling helmet. From 1 January 2010, the wearing of helmets with faceguards became compulsory for hurlers at all levels. This saw senior players follow the regulations already introduced in 2009 at minor and under 21 grades. The GAA hopes to significantly reduce the number of injuries by introducing the compulsory wearing of helmets with full faceguards, both in training and matches. This is also known as a "clash".
