The Falls area includes the Indiana towns of Clarksville, New Albany, Jeffersonville, and Louisville, Kentucky across the river. This area is rich in history. Before the installation of the locks, riverboats had to stop at the Falls. The passengers and cargo had to be portaged around them. The cities played an important role in this process. Jeffersonville blossomed into an important riverboat-building center and rail hub. The area served an important role during the Civil War.

A mere 8 miles from Piccadilly Circus lies this grand Neo-classical palace, set in an idealised landscape. Osterley Park and House is an astonishing survival, an eighteenth-century country estate on the western flank of London. The faint roar in the distance is the traffic on the M4, and planes fly directly over the imposing pedimented portico as they land and take off at nearby Heathrow. Despite the encroachments of the last century, the park remains one of the largest open spaces in West London, and is much valued by people living locally.

Over the last two decades soccer has become a major institution within the popular culture of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel. They have attained disproportionate success in this field. Given their marginalization from many areas of Israeli society as well as the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, such a prominent Arab presence highlights the tension between their Israeli citizenship and their belonging to the Palestinian people. Bringing together sociological, anthropological and historical approaches, Sorek examines how soccer can potentially be utilized by ethnic and national minorities as a field of social protest, a stage for demonstrating distinctive identity, or as a channel for social and political integration. Relying on a rich combination of quantitative and qualitative methods, he argues that equality in the soccer sphere legitimizes contemporary inequality between Jews and Arabs in Israel and pursues wider arguments about the role of sport in ethno-national conflicts. Ideal for researchers and graduate students.
