The Sheep Book is widely recognized as a classic. Ron Parker brings together a farmer's day-by-day practical experience and a scientist's mind in a gracefully written narrative. In this revised edition, he updates many aspects of sheep stewardship-such as new or newly banned medications, progress in reproductive technology, popular new sheep breeds, and the growing dairy sheep field.

Leadership Secrets and Life Wisdom I Learned While Shepherding
Author: AlBaraa H. Taibah
Category: Biography & Autobiography
There is no prophet who has not tended sheep. So goes a famous phrase in Islamic scripture, words that had long intrigued young MBA student AlBaraa Taibah. How does shepherding awaken one's wisdom? Empower one's leadership skills? Build one's character? Why was shepherding the starting point for great leaders like Mohammed, Moses and Abraham? There must be a reason and lessons in shepherding to take away, he reasoned. So AlBaraa made the decision to become a modern-day shepherd, to spend ten days alone with a herd of sheep in the Sahara Desert, attempting to learn what the scripture was talking about. Confronting the dangers of desert snakes, getting hopelessly lost in the dunes, and suffering from dehydration, on the first day he asks himself, 'Why didn't I just take that leadership course back in Boston?' What transpires is an adventure, a journey into consciousness, that is as poetic and funny as it is profound. The Modern Shepherd is a journal of personal discovery and a leadership textbook unlike any other. Learn and laugh with AlBaraa as he acquires the secret of being an effective leader from a stubborn flock of sheep.
Of all the titles which have been minted for the envoys of the Son of God, that of "shepherd" is the most popular, the most beautiful, and the most ample. Bishop, presbyter, preacher, priest, clergyman, rector, parson, minister, all of these have been long, and are still, in use, but not one of them is so satisfying or sufficient as "shepherd."--Page 1.

On 6 July 2005, the International Olympic Committee awarded the 2012 summer Olympic Games to the city of London, opening a new chapter in Great Britain’s rich Olympic history. Despite the prospect of hosting the summer Games for the third time since Pierre de Coubertin’s 1894 revival of the Olympic movement, the historical roots of British Olympism have received limited scholarly attention. With the conclusion of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the passing of the baton to London, Rule Britannia remedies that oversight. This book uncovers Britain’s early Olympic involvement, revealing how the British public, media, and leading governmental officials were strongly opposed to international Olympic competition. It explores how the British Olympic Association focused on three main factors in the midst of widespread national opposition: it embraced early Olympian spectacles as a platform for maintaining a sporting union with Ireland, it fostered a greater sense of imperial identity with Britain’s white dominions, and it undertook an ambitious policy of athletic specialization designed to reverse the nation’s waning fortunes in international sport. This book was previously published as a special issue of International Journal of the History of Sport.
