              Peaky Blinders - The Real Story of Birmingham's most notorious gangs: The No. 1 Sunday Times Bestseller (Paperback)

              The Peaky Blinders as we know them, thanks to the hit TV series, are infused with drama and dread. Fashionably dressed, the charismatic but deeply flawed Shelby family blind enemies by slashing them with the disposable safety razor blades stitched in to the peaks of their flat ca...ps, as they fight bloody gangland wars involving Irish terrorists and the authorities led by a devious Home Secretary, Winston Churchill. But who were the real Peaky Blinders? Did they really exist? Well-known social historian, broadcaster and author, Carl Chinn, has spent decades searching them out. Now he reveals the true story of the notorious Peaky Blinders, one of whom was his own great grandfather and, like the Shelbys, his grandfather was an illegal bookmaker in back-street Birmingham. In this gripping social history, Chinn shines a light on the rarely reported struggles of the working class in one of the great cities of the British Empire before the First World War. The story continues after 1918 as some Peaky Blinders transformed into the infamous Birmingham Gang. Led by the real Billy Kimber, they fought a bloody war with the London gangsters Darby Sabini and Alfie Solomon over valuable protection rackets extorting money from bookmakers across the booming postwar racecourses of Britain. Drawing together a remarkably wide-range of original sources, including rarely seen images of real Peaky Blinders and interviews with relatives of the 1920s gangsters, Peaky Blinders: The Real Story adds a new dimension to the true history of Birmingham's underworld and fact behind its fiction.

              'We will run everything in this country, robbery, drugs, trafficking, in five years' time. I promise you that.' - Vulo, Albanian Gangster 'They're committing outrageous crimes on our manor. They're telling us they can operate wherever they want and we can't do a thing about it. -... Steve Marchmont, Essex Gangster For the past decade European gangsters have been fighting a turf war with homegrown British gangsters for control of the criminal badlands of London, Kent, Essex and throughout the UK. Many of these foreign gangs see Kent and Essex as a stepping-stone to the total domination of the British underworld. In the two years since the Brexit referendum this war has intensified with European gangsters deliberately setting out to win and establish their businesses, both illicit and legit, before the UK leaves the EU. The stakes are worth billions of pounds. On one side are the so-called 'New Kids on the Bloc': Eastern Europeans, who have muscled in and boast that within the next five years they will crush all others and dominate the British criminal underworld. On the other side is the 'Establishment': the old school, British based crime syndicates that have been working this area for decades. They own homes, send their kids to area schools, are known denizens of the local pubs and football pitches - attend weddings and funerals. Kent and Essex are connected by the Dartford Crossing - a transport hub for slave, drugs and arms traders as well killers and fugitives. The Crossing is the crucial piece of real estate in this bloody battle and the chilling setting for this hard-hitting, access-driven, insight into modern day gang warfare that takes the reader behind-the-scenes of a lethal struggle for domination.

              More words have been written about about Muhammad Ali than almost anyone else. And yet, until now, the one voice missing has been the one belonging to the man who knew him best. Muhammad Ali was, without doubt, the world's most-loved sportsman and people. At the height of his cel...ebrity he was the most famous person in the world. And no one was closer to him than Rahaman Ali, his only sibling and best friend. Born Cassius and Rudulph Valentino Clay, the two brothers grew up together, lived together, trained together, travelled together, and fought together in the street and in the ring. A near-constant fixture in his famous sibling's company, Rahaman saw Ali at both his best and his worst: the relentless prankster and the jealous older brother, the outspoken advocate and the devoted family man. From time spent relaxing together behind closed doors, to encounters with kings, presidents and celebrities, he is able to offer an insider's perspective on all the well-known stories as well as never-before-told tales. In The Real Ali, Rahaman paints an evocative, rich and intimate portrait of Muhammad Ali - of both the legend and the man. Full of poignant, moving and surprising memories, it will show readers the icon through a different and more honest lens, painting a portrait of an affable, sweet, proud and yet relentlessly polarizing man. Many books have been written about Ali, but most have focused on a particular period of his life or a key fight. In this extraordinary, unrivalled memoir on life with the great man, Rahaman tells a much bigger and more personal story - that of two brothers, almost inseparable from birth to death. It is the final and most important perspective on one of the most iconic figures of the last century.

              It is 1965, and Swinging London is coming into its prime years. The streets are alive with mods and rockers, playboys and good-time girls, all revelling in the blossoming artistic, creative and cultural energies of the decade. Amid the colour and chaos is a boy sporting drainpipe... jeans, an immaculately tailored sports coat and a half-inch wide tie. A devoted fan of The Who, he looks the part in his pristine mod gear. As the lead singer of the Lower Third, his talent is shaping itself into something truly special. His name is Davie Jones. In ten years, he will be unrecognisable as fresh-faced boy of 1965, and in just over fifty years, his death will be mourned by millions, his legacy the story of the greatest rock star of all time. And, all through the years of the late sixties, Phil Lancaster was by his side. As the drummer in Bowie's band, the Lower Third, Phil was there as the singer's musical stripes began to show, and was witness to his early recording techniques, his first experimental forays into drug-taking, and the band's discovery of his bisexuality in shocking circumstances. In this riveting - and often very funny - memoir, Phil tells the story of life alongside the insecure yet blazingly talented boy who became Bowie, at a critical crossroad of time and place in music history. What follows is an intimate, personal and important perspective on the genesis of one of the most iconic musicians of the twentieth century - one that gets under the skin of the man himself, before the personas and alter-egos masked the fascinating figure beneath them. At the Birth of Bowie is essential reading for anyone who knows what happened on Bowie's journey, but wants to understand how, and why, it ever began.
