We all have dreams of what we want to do and who we want to become. Many of us eventually decide it is too late; we have missed our chances. But is it ever really too late to try?

Don Simpson does not think so. In his memoir, Too Old for Motor Racing, he tells the story of how he became a race car driver at the age of sixty-two. Simpson is an ordinary man from a regular family; he spent his early years living on a council estate in Liverpool, UK. He attended the school at the end of his street, leaving as soon as he could. As a young man with a young family, he could not indulge in his passion for motor racing except as a spectator; racing was simply too expensive and risky for someone with a family to take care of. Later in life, however, Simpson discovered limits are almost always imagined, not real. At the age of sixty-two, he began to race.

Although your passion may be for something other than motor racing, this memoir seeks to inspire you to go after your dreams, because it is never too late to try.

Street Capital

RRP $234.99

'Street capital' introduces the worlds of young black men dealing cannabis at a drug scene called The River in Oslo, Norway. The lives of these men are structured by a huge and complex cannabis economy and they are involved in fights, robberies and substance abuse. They lack jobs and education, and many of them do not have family or close friends, yet they do have 'street capital': the knowledge, skills and competence necessary to manage life on the streets.Centred on this concept of 'street capital', this unique book presents a new theoretical framework - inspired by and expanding on the work of Pierre Bourdieu, the French sociologist - for understanding street cultures. It is based on extensive fieldwork and repeated in-depth interviews with dealers aged between 15 and 30, which explore themes including marginalisation, discrimination, cannabis dealing and drug use, violence, masculinity, hip-hop culture, experiences with the welfare system, and issues of immigration and racism. The book also analyses the discursive practice of marginalised people on the street and identifies the narratives by which these young men live. 'Street capital' is aimed at postgraduates and academics in criminology, race and ethnicity, sociology, social theory and methodology. It will also be of interest to a wider social science audience, particularly those interested in using Bourdieu as a theoretical model.
