They captured the mounting excitement as the ice was prepped, the sticks taped, the microphones checked and as 18 teams prepared both mentally and physically for nine games across North America: They also covered the eight other teams as they traveled, practiced and prepared for their games in days ahead. The resulting visual celebration, with over 300 photographs created both on and off the ice, presents a never-before-seen look at A Day in the Life of: The National Hockey League.

- The Other Side of Israel: My Journey Across the Jewish/Arab Divide
The pioneering autobiographical story of a British Zionist in her fifties who moves to Israel and chooses to live among 25,000 Muslims in the all-Arab Israeli town of Tamra, a few miles from Nazareth.
Susan Nathan's revelatory book about her new life across the ethnic divide in Israel is already creating international interest. At a time when Middle Eastern politics (in many ways central to the current world disorder) have become mired in endless tit-for-tat killings, Susan Nathan is showing - by her own daily example - that it is perfectly possible for Jews and Arabs to live peacefully together in a single community, recognising their common humanity.
The author's familiarity with the former injustices of apartheid South Africa enables her to draw telling comparisons with the state of Israel. The increasing segregation of, and discrimintation against, the million-strong Arabic population of Israel is something she witnesses at first hand, but in describing her experiences in Tamra she is as observant of Arab frailties as of Jewish oppression.
Written with warmth, compassion and humour, 'The Other Side of Israel' is one courageous woman's positive life-enhancing response to a situation in which entrenched attitudes lead only to more violence and bloodshed.
