NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In Slaying the Tiger, one of today’s boldest young sportswriters spends a season inside the ropes alongside the rising stars who are transforming the game of golf. For more than a decade, golf was dominated by one galvanizing figure: Eldrick “Tiger” Woods. But as his star has fallen, a new, ambitious generation has stepped up to claim the crown. Once the domain of veterans, golf saw a youth revolution in 2014. In Slaying the Tiger, Shane Ryan introduces us to the volatile, colorful crop of heirs apparent who are storming the barricades of this traditionally old-fashioned sport. As the golf writer for Bill Simmons’s Grantland, Shane Ryan is the perfect herald for the sport’s new age. In Slaying the Tiger, he embeds himself for a season on the PGA Tour, where he finds the game far removed from the genteel rhythms of yesteryear. Instead, he discovers a group of mercurial talents driven to greatness by their fear of failure and their relentless perfectionism. From Augusta to Scotland, with an irreverent and energetic voice, Ryan documents every transcendent moment, every press tent tirade, and every controversy that made the 2014 Tour one of the most exciting and unpredictable in recent memory. Here are indelibly drawn profiles of the game’s young guns: Rory McIlroy, the Northern Irish ace who stepped forward as the game’s next superstar; Patrick Reed, a brash, boastful competitor with a warrior’s mentality; Dustin Johnson, the brilliant natural talent whose private habits sabotage his potential; and Jason Day, a resilient Aussie whose hardscrabble beginnings make him the Tour’s ultimate longshot. Here also is the bumptious Bubba Watson, a devout Christian known for his unsportsmanlike outbursts on the golf course; Keegan Bradley, a flinty New Englander who plays with a colossal chip on his shoulder; twenty-one-year-old Jordan Spieth, a preternaturally mature Texan carrying the hopes of the golf establishment; and Rickie Fowler, the humble California kid striving to make his golf speak louder than his bright orange clothes. Bound by their talent, each one hungrier than the last, these players will vie over the coming decade for the right to be called the next king of the game. Golf may be slow to change, but in 2014, the wheels were turning at a feverish pace. Slaying the Tiger offers a dynamic snapshot of a rapidly evolving sport. Praise for Slaying the Tiger “This book is going to be controversial. There is no question about it. . . . It is the most unvarnished view of the tour—the biggest tour in the world—that I’ve ever read. And it’s not close.”—Gary Williams, Golf Channel “A must-read for PGA Tour fans from the casual to the most dedicated . . . This book is certain to be as important to this era as [John] Feinstein’s [A Good Walk Spoiled] was two decades ago. . . . A well-researched, in-depth look at the men who inhabit the highest levels of the game.”—Examiner.com “A masterfully written account of an important time in golf history.”—Adam Fonseca, Golf Unfiltered “Absolutely marvelous . . . Ryan’s writing flows and his reporting turns pages for you.”—Kyle Porter, CBS Sports “A riveting read.”—Library Journal “Ryan’s fresh look is just what we golfer/readers want.”—Curt Sampson, New York Times bestselling author of Hogan “Ryan does a fantastic job painting a thoughtful and accurate portrait of the new crop of heirs apparent.”—Stephanie Wei, Wei Under Par

Jarenlang was Tiger Woods een onverslaanbare ster. Hij inspireerde miljoenen golfers, won veertien majors en 79 grote toernooien, en verdiende honderd miljoen dollar per jaar. Hij was de eerste sportmiljardair, getrouwd met een Zweeds model, vader van twee kleine kinderen. Hij was de man met het perfecte leven. Dat alles bleek een illusie. Woods hield er al jaren een dubbelleven op na, wat pijnlijk duidelijk werd toen na een nachtelijk auto-ongeluk plotseling zijn buitenechtelijke affaires aan het licht kwamen. Zijn leven stortte in. Voor hun meeslepende inside story over Woods interviewden twee van de beste sportjournalisten ter wereld honderden mensen uit zijn inner circle - familie, vrienden, liefdespartners, coaches, collega-golfers, zakenpartners en anderen - om antwoord te kunnen geven op de vraag die miljoenen sportlieffhebbers al zolang bezighoudt: wie is Tiger Woods? Zij schreven een fascinerend portret van een Afro-Amerikaanse jongen die door een aandachtzieke vader en een overambitieuze moeder gedrild werd tot 'de uitverkorene': Tiger moest niet alleen de witte golfsport openbreken, hij moest ook de wereld veranderen. Maar tegen welke prijs? Tiger Woods is een meeslepend verhaal over de onstuitbare opkomst en de dramatische val van een icoon, een onvergetelijk portret van een gevallen held.

Tyler Hamilton was een van de meest geliefde en snelste wielrenners ter wereld. Zijn jarenlange dopinggebruik heeft hij altijd ontkend. In De wielermaffia vertelt hij voor het eerst zijn verhaal. Hij laat zien hoe de wereld van het professionele wielrennen met de komst van het `wondermiddel EPO midden jaren negentig in korte tijd drastisch veranderde. Om in de Tour met de besten mee te kunnen komen, kon je niet anders dan doping gebruiken. Meer nog dan Hamilton was zijn vriend en ploeggenoot Lance Armstrong een spin in het dopingweb. Hij was het die EPO faciliteerde, contacten onderhield met de meest vooraanstaande artsen onder wie de sluwe Italiaanse dokter Michele Ferrari en zijn mederenners dwong om doping te gebruiken.

Devotional Sovereignty: Kingship and Religion in India investigates the shifting conceptualization of sovereignty in the South Indian kingdom of Mysore during the reigns of Tipu Sultan (r. 1782-1799) and Krishnaraja Wodeyar III (r. 1799-1868). Tipu Sultan was a Muslim king famous for resisting British dominance until his death; Krishnaraja III was a Hindu king who succumbed to British political and administrative control. Despite their differences, the courts of both kings dealt with the changing political landscape by turning to the religious and mythical past to construct a royal identity for their kings. Caleb Simmons explores the ways in which these two kings and their courts modified and adapted pre-modern Indian notions of sovereignty and kingship in reaction to British intervention. The religious past provided an idiom through which the Mysore courts could articulate their rulers' claims to kingship in the region, attributing their rule to divine election and employing religious vocabulary in a variety of courtly genres and media. Through critical inquiry into the transitional early colonial period, this study sheds new light on pre-modern and modern India, with implications for our understanding of contemporary politics. It offers a revisionist history of the accepted narrative in which Tipu Sultan is viewed as a radical Muslim reformer and Krishnaraja III as a powerless British puppet. Simmons paints a picture of both rulers in which they work within and from the same understanding of kingship, utilizing devotion to Hindu gods, goddesses, and gurus to perform the duties of the king.
