    Big Jock: The Real Jock Wallace
    David Leggat - Paperback - Black & White Publishing
    Jock Wallace wasn't just one of Scotland's outstanding football managers - he was a legend. A larger-than-life character, a giant of a man and a real-life hero, Wallace lived an extraordinary life. Though only an average goalkeeper who never made it as a player, he lived the football dream when he went on to manage Rangers twice, winning a whole host of trophies, including two Trebles in three seasons in the mid-seventies. But the road to the top was a tough one for big Jock, including a spell as a jungle fighter with the King's Own Scottish Borderers in war-torn Malaya, and in his fifties he was struck down by Parkinson's disease. In the end, the strain proved too much even for Wallace and he died of a heart attack aged only sixty-two. In this biography, David Leggat, one of the few journalists who was close to Big Jock, tells his incredible story.

    Black Diamonds & The Blue Brazil: A Chronicle Of Coal, Cowdenbeath And Football
    Ron Ferguson - Paperback - Saint Andrew
    This is a book about much, much more than football. Cowdenbeath's story is set against the rise and decline of the local mining industry and the life after mining. It is very funny, deeply spiritual, moving and also a little bit political. But what makes it so interesting is the uplifting story of a real community spirit throughout all the ups and downs of the town, and a football club that's at its social heart and core.
