Final Innings is the story of five tumultuous years in the life of a successful and internationally admired Indian cricketer, Ramdas Upreti. It explores the depths of human desire and disillusionment, hope and regret, love and longing, and deep passions. Above all it is a story of extraordinary courage in the teeth of danger and adversity. A combination of extraordinary circumstances and coincidences on and off the cricket field conspire to rekindle Ramdas’ obsessions with contemporary global and subcontinental gridlocks. Three complex relationships add their own piquancy: with Anne, his ex-girlfriend, with Pakistani nurse Nargis, and the bond he develops with Nargis’ father, the Pakistani umpire Khalid Azam. Events now begin to overtake him, and his life slowly begins to unravel. These multiple strands eventually converge to create a stirring and memorable crescendo. Final Innings brings to life our world: the reality that subcontinental teams tend to struggle in the SENA countries, the fraught India-Pakistan relationship, the powder keg called Kashmir, terrorism, climate change and the environment. The plot unfolds over four ‘Innings’ like the build-up to the climax of a cliff-hanger Test Match. The action swings across India, Australia, England, Pakistan and the UAE. ‘Final Innings’ is a voyage deep into dark, choppy and uncharted waters. It is not about about the T-20 leagues, nor about corruption and match-fixing. It is a thought-provoking and deeply moving human story which happens to be set in the world of cricket.

This book starts by focusing on Medieval creativity and the first, and later attempts at written music, from the earliest days on into the Ars Nova period, so as to show the eventual evolution to Renaissance triadic counterpoint. The second, more important focus is on an adapted set of Species exercises, with all the benefits of its strict rules. The third focus is on freer creativity within the learned rules. The final focus is on the English Madrigal, and how it bridges to Baroque tonality. A prose Appendix historically orients the student with overview summaries of the Renaissance period.

Jeffrey A. Kroessler's comprehensive and entertaining time line stretches from the pastoral entertainments of the Dutch to the corporate captivity of professional sports. He chronicles events ranging from the truly heroic to the heartbreaking, from moments of municipal greatness to inescapable social change. Through it all he plants the world of sport at the very center of New York's story. Fully illustrated, The Greater New York Sports Chronology covers the spectacle of blood sports like bullbaiting to the birth of baseball, the now-forgotten six-day pedestrian contests, and today's New York City Marathon. Alongside great moments like the Mets' "amazin'" World Series win in 1969, Joe Louis's historic bouts with Max Schmeling, Jackie Robinson's breaking of baseball's color line, and Secretariat's remarkable Triple Crown win at Belmont, we encounter the point-shaving scandals of college basketball and the corrupting influence of organized crime in professional boxing. Beyond immortals like Lou Gehrig and Joe Namath, we also find such once well known figures as Joe Lapchick, Marty Glickman, Gertrude Ederle, and Toots Shor. Year by year, this chronology recounts chess matches, America's Cup races, dog shows, golf tournaments, polo matches, tennis games, and more. Kroessler describes the historic venues, boxing arenas, gyms, stadiums, ballparks, and racetracks that have come and gone, yet made New York the undisputed capital of American sport. Witnessing it all, of course, are the greatest fans in the world.

World War II threatened to ruin Major League Baseball. By 1945, over 500 major leaguers and 3,000 minor league prospects had been enlisted for the war effort, leaving a dearth of talent for the Big Leagues. The St. Louis Browns, like other AL and NL clubs, would be forced to fill holes in their roster with scrubs-4-F players (those dismissed from the military due to physical ailments), retired major leaguers, and youngsters not yet ready to leave the minors. But there were still some top level players to be had, and 1944 Browns manager Luke Sewell assembled the franchise's most successful team ever, taking the St. Louis ball club to its first and only Fall Classic.
