Paperback: $13.03
Prints in 3-5 business days
This (large-print edition) book is the memoir of Kieran James, and details his experiences as co-founder of West Perth Football Club’s unofficial cheer squad from 1984 to 1986. The book details... More > “traditional”, “hot” support for West Perth Football Club among teenaged supporters from middle-class and working-class backgrounds. The book shows how, because of neo-liberal ideologies and the corporatization of football, the new national league (the “expanded VFL” / AFL) relegated the WAFL to a second-tier league in 1987. This move took place over the heads of ordinary football supporters and two WAFL club presidents. Moves to bring the game closer to the people in 1984, such as holding the best-and-fairest award count night at Perth Entertainment Centre, should be seen in this light. This book will allow supporters to relive great teams, great players, and great matches from a wonderful era in WA football 1984-86 before West Coast Eagles joined the expanded VFL.< Less

This book is the memoir of Kieran James, and details his experiences as co-founder of West Perth Football Club’s unofficial cheer squad from 1984 to 1986 (Western Australian Football League /... More > WAFL). Using Marsh’s theory of the “illusion of violence”, the author links the cheer squad to the academic literature on British soccer hooligans, Italian ultras, and other soccer supporter groups from around the world. The book details “traditional”, “hot” support for West Perth Football Club among teenaged supporters from middle-class and working-class backgrounds. The findings conform to Armstrong and Hughson’s idea of fluid “post-modern” “neo-tribes” where affiliations are very loose and people can easily adjust their degree of commitment to a group and / or leave the group when their personal priorities change. The book also allows the reader to relive great WAFL matches and meet again key players from the era.< Less

Metallica By Kieran James & Christopher Tolliday
Hardcover: $15.11
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book was written mostly in calendar year 2008 either before the Death Magnetic album had been released or after it was released but before we had heard it. It reflects the anger and betrayal... More > many fans of our generation, who had supported Metallica since Ride the Lightning days or even earlier, felt because of the Napster incident of 2000-2001 and the abysmal St. Anger album of 2003. We don’t have this level of anger towards the band anymore. Maybe writing the article (as it was then) was a cathartic process. We admit that it was somewhat enjoyable bashing Lars Ulrich over the head with a weighty copy of Karl Marx’s 1,100 page opus Capital Volume 1. Like Marx’s Capital, our book was a product of its time. Please enjoy this book because it reflects the real anger towards Metallica which many older fans of the band were feeling in that time between the releases of St. Anger in 2003 and Death Magnetic in 2008.< Less
Money Doctrines – Traditional versus Word of Faith Teaching By Kieran James & Christopher Tolliday
Paperback: $7.07
Prints in 3-5 business days
There has been a significant volume of scholarly work conducted recently within the accounting literature on the role of money, investment and accounting within religious organizations. However,... More > scant attention has been paid to modern Pentecostal understandings of money, investment and accounting. In this book we study the major money-related doctrines of American husband-and-wife televangelist Faith Teachers Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. We find the unique Copeland interpretation of “Treasures in Heaven” (Matthew 6:20) to be a complete inversion of the traditional or Anglican theological interpretation. While the traditional interpretation is that this verse refers to future rewards available after death, the Copelands argue that it refers to rewards existing now in the heavenly places in what they refer to as the believer’s “heavenly bank account”. The Copelands also believe in a literal “hundredfold return” on monetary and other gifts made “for the gospel’s sake” (Mark 10:29-30).< Less
