Dan Stuart is a sporting man from Dallas with a scheme as big as Texas. He plans to stage the prizefight of the century and reap a million-dollar gate. But Stuart finds the path to riches strewn with obstacles. Outraged politicians block him at every turn, and a gang of robbers led by a sharp-shooting beauty have plans of their own--the heist of the century. Stuart has two champion pugilists, give gunmen, Bat Masterson and Judge Roy Bean in his corner. Now, with the robbers set to score and the Texas Rangers hot on his trail, the West's first boxing promoter is desperately searching for a place to hold his fight. And when he finds it, what a hell of a fight it will be!

Bloodsport

The epic battle of the fascinating, flawed figures behind America's deal culture and their fight over who controls and who benefits from the immense wealth of American corporations. Bloodsport is the story of how the mania for corporate deals and mergers all began. The riveting tale of how power lawyers Joe Flom and Marty Lipton, major Wall Street players Felix Rohatyn and Bruce Wasserstein, prominent jurists, and shrewd ideologues in academic garb provided the intellectual firepower, creativity, and energy that drove the corporate elite into a less cozy, Hobbesian world. With total dollar volume in the trillions, the zeal for the deal continues unabated to this day. Underpinning this explosion in mergers and acquisitions—including hostile takeovers—are four questions that radically disrupted corporate ownership in the 1970s, whose force remains undiminished: Are shareholders the sole “owners” of corporations and the legitimate source of power? Should control be exercised by autonomous CEOs or is their assumption of power illegitimate and inefficient? Is the primary purpose of the corporation to generate jobs and create prosperity for the masses and the nation? Or is it simply to maximize the wealth of shareholders? This battle of ideas became the “bloodsport” of American business. It set in motion the deal-making culture that led to the financialization of the economy and it is the backstory to ongoing debates over competitiveness, job losses, inequality, stratospheric executive pay, and who “owns” America's corporations.

Blood Sport

Welcome to the wilderness of masculinity, where anything goes—where women throw themselves unreservedly at men and games are played to the death. This is the outdoor paradise of the Hassayampa, a legendary river whose bank is overrun with prehistoric and mystical creatures prime for hunting and whose water is said to turn honest men into liars. Here a father takes his prepubescent son on an unforgettable adventure, a rite-of-passage quest that starts as an innocent fishing trip and soon turns into a bizarre Homeric journey. In turn comic and brutal, Blood Sport is more than just the ultimate cult outdoor novel: it’s a profound reflection on violence, civilization, and what it means to be a man. Juxtaposing gunfights with philosophy, sensitivity with the surreal, Jones has created a truly unique masterpiece whose poignant metaphors, visionary prose, and imaginative story have placed him in the company of such masters as Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Carlos Castaneda. Blood Sport’s magic has continued to captivate audiences since its original publication in 1974, and it promises to remain a classic in adventure literature for years to come.

Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart takes readers behind the scenes in the Clinton White House as it reels in the wake of the Whitewater scandal, Vincent Foster’s suicide, and Paula Jones’ allegations of sexual misconduct. In July 1993, White House official Vincent Foster wrote an anguished lament: “in Washington...ruining people is considered a sport.” Nine days later, Foster was dead. Shock at the apparent suicide of one of President Clinton’s top aides turned to mystery, then suspicion, as the White House became engulfed in an ever-widening net of unanswered questions. Among the confidential matters Foster was working on when he died was the Clinton’s ill-fated investment in Whitewater, an Arkansas land development. Soon conspiracy theories were circulating, alleging that Foster was murdered because he knew too much. And the Whitewater affair, a minor footnote to the 1992 presidential campaign, was suddenly resurrected in the national media. To a degree that left them sunned and at times depressed, the president and the first lady have been buffeted by a succession of scandals, from the first lady's profitable commodities trading to the sexual harassment allegations of Paula Jones. Like his predecessors, the Clinton presidency son found itself engulfed in allegations of scandal, conspiracy, and cover-up. Drawing on hundreds of interviews, many with people speaking publicly for the first time, James B. Stewart also sheds startling new light on these and other mysteries of the Clinton White House. In a fast-paced narrative that ranges from a backwater town in the Ozarks to the Oval Office, from newsrooms in New York and Los Angeles to offices of conservative think tanks and special prosecutors, the result is an unprecedented portrait of political combat as it is waged in America today.
