This is a true story of sweat and sacrifice, of triumph over adversity. Professional boxer Bud Taylor became a star in the Golden Age of Sports, when Americans worshipped their sports heroes, and the popularity of boxing ranked second only to baseball. Known as "The Terre Haute Terror," Taylor hit hard and trained hard in passionate pursuit of the world bantamweight title. His obstacles were plenty: the physical, from injuries such as battered hands and broken noses; the emotional: the anguish of watching two men die from his blows; and the practical: a champion who eluded him, wanting no part of The Terror. His story is told from the ringsides, dressing rooms and gymnasiums of the boxer's travels. Meet the fight game's quirky characters, follow the money, marvel at the media frenzy and enjoy anecdotes about the people and places of the 1920s in a first-ever biography of Taylor. The book is part biography and part history lesson of the times, written in the entertaining style of a former sportswriter who became an award-winning investigative news reporter. It is foremost a book about boxing, but it is also about the glitzy, glamorous 1920s, when Americans cherished their diversions-fashion, jazz, auto-mobiles, and above all, sports. This is a story of an underdog, who grew up poor but ideally equipped for his career with the tools of self-discipline and perseverance, who rode the backing of his beloved hometown supporters to the pinnacle of his profession. Along the way, Taylor's reputation for fighting through injuries and his never-quit attitude notched him a reputation as a great boxing ticket, and his show-stopping performances earned him a great fan following in such cities as Chicago and Los Angeles. Taylor was a paradox in many ways: A ferocious predator inside the ring but vulnerable and compassionate outside; So self-focused on a career goal that he trained obsessively, yet generously giving of his time to community causes; A model of fitness and frugality during his fight career who ultimately wound up obese and broke. Bud Taylor fought 166 pro fights in 11 years, an average of about one every three weeks. His classic battles with Tony Canzoneri, Jimmy McLarnin, Pancho Villa and Pal Moore, among others, are recounted. Like many success stories, Taylor surrounded himself with talent: first-rate trainers Jack Blackburn and Barney Furey; his loyal manager, Eddie Long; and the friendship and tutelage of talented boxers of the times-champions Tommy Gibbons, Sammy Mandell, and others. A basher with either fist, Taylor's blows killed two men, ended a third man's career and left others unconscious for tense moments. He was left with the task of reconciling the deaths before he destroyed himself from self-guilt. JOHN D. WRIGHT lives in Terre Haute, Indiana. He has a master's degree from Indiana State University and has worked on the staff of the Terre Haute Tribune-Star newspaper for more than 20 years. As a longtime reporter, he covered news and sports in the Wabash Valley ranging from high-school basketball to murder trials. Among his awards is a state Society of Professional Journalists 1992 first-place award for investigative reporting; and a Hoosier State Press Association 1994 first place for deadline reporting after witnessing in person the execution of mass murderer John Wayne Gacy.Wright's interest in boxing dates from his childhood; his father, "Ren"Wright, boxed amateur bouts out of Sullivan, Indiana, from 1949 to 1951, and often talked about "Bud" Taylor. Wright also knows about one-on-one sports - he is a USPTA-certified tennis instructor and frequently a nationally ranked player in his age division.

Site of the world's busiest and most lucrative harbor throughout the first half of the twentieth century, the Port of New York was also the historic preserve of Irish American gangsters, politicians, longshoremen's union leaders, and powerful Roman Catholic pastors. This is the demimonde depicted to stunning effect in Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront (1954) and into which James T. Fisher takes readers in this remarkable and engaging historical account of the classic film's backstory. Fisher introduces readers to the real "Father Pete Barry" featured in On the Waterfront, John M. "Pete" Corridan, a crusading priest committed to winning union democracy and social justice for the port's dockworkers and their families. A Jesuit labor school instructor, not a parish priest, Corridan was on but not of Manhattan's West Side Irish waterfront. His ferocious advocacy was resisted by the very men he sought to rescue from the violence and criminality that rendered the port "a jungle, an outlaw frontier," in the words of investigative reporter Malcolm Johnson. Driven off the waterfront, Corridan forged creative and spiritual alliances with men like Johnson and Budd Schulberg, the screenwriter who worked with Corridan for five years to turn Johnson's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1948 newspaper exposé into a movie. Fisher's detailed account of the waterfront priest's central role in the film's creation challenges standard views of the film as a post facto justification for Kazan and Schulberg's testimony as ex-communists before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. On the Irish Waterfront is also a detailed social history of the New York/New Jersey waterfront, from the rise of Irish American entrepreneurs and political bosses during the World War I era to the mid-1950s, when the emergence of a revolutionary new mode of cargo-shipping signaled a radical reorganization of the port. This book explores the conflicts experienced and accommodations made by an insular Irish-Catholic community forced to adapt its economic, political, and religious lives to powerful forces of change both local and global in scope.

Covering an exhaustive range of information about the five boroughs, the first edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City was a success by every measure, earning worldwide acclaim and several awards for reference excellence, and selling out its first printing before it was officially published. But much has changed since the volume first appeared in 1995: the World Trade Center no longer dominates the skyline, a billionaire businessman has become an unlikely three-term mayor, and urban regeneration—Chelsea Piers, the High Line, DUMBO, Williamsburg, the South Bronx, the Lower East Side—has become commonplace. To reflect such innovation and change, this definitive, one-volume resource on the city has been completely revised and expanded. The revised edition includes 800 new entries that help complete the story of New York: from Air Train to E-ZPass, from September 11 to public order. The new material includes broader coverage of subject areas previously underserved as well as new maps and illustrations. Virtually all existing entries—spanning architecture, politics, business, sports, the arts, and more—have been updated to reflect the impact of the past two decades. The more than 5,000 alphabetical entries and 700 illustrations of the second edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City convey the richness and diversity of its subject in great breadth and detail, and will continue to serve as an indispensable tool for everyone who has even a passing interest in the American metropolis.

Audubon's history dates from the 1600s, with several deeds showing purchases of land in 1682. Centuries later, in the early 1900s, owners of the seven existing farmsteads incorporated into a borough named in honor of naturalist John James Audubon. Nicknamed "Mudubon" in the 1920s and 1930s, the community is now recognized as "the Most Patriotic Small Town in America," having been the home of three Medal of Honor recipients, two of whom have naval vessels named in their memory. Audubon highlights the history of this unique borough that served as the weekend retreat for heavyweight boxing champion Gene Tunney and was the home of World War II bomber pilot and actor John McKee.

Sports events represent, for many, landmarks for memories, contexts that securely fix moments in past time. And in America, perhaps more than in any other country, they are part of what connects the individual to the multitude. When we add them to our remembrances, they subtly suggest that, like sporting contests, our personal tales are fit for public consumption. How easy and natural it is to add a little referential sidebar to the stories we tell: “I started work in January, I remember because the Bills had just lost the Super Bowl—the fourth one.” On a broader scale, sports have left their imprint on the stony history of the nation. Beginning slowly with a game of bowls (1611), something like miniature golf in New England (1652), horse racing on Long Island, and billiards in Charlestown (1722), the sporting life then gained momentum—and a firmer grip on the national conscience—with the early play of baseball, basketball, and football, games that would come to dominate the sports scene in 20th century America. Organized by day of the year, this volume provides the browser, the trivia buff and the sports historian a record of thousands of frames, matches, series, and championships. Whether it's the day a bases-loaded walk gave the National League its 16th All-Star victory in 17 seasons (July 17, 1979) or the day Harvard defeated Yale and Brown in the first-ever intercollegiate regatta (July 26, 1859), there's something new buried within the tome’s 365 layers for even the most knowledgeable fans.
