|A Season on the Brink: A portrait of Rafa Benitez's Liverpool|
When Rafael Benitez was appointed manager of under-achieving Liverpool at the start of the 2004-2005 season, the reaction of many fans was 'Who the **** is Rafael Benitez?'. The Liverpool fans had grown used to French manager Gerard Houllier but he had been a fan of the club himself since his days as a teacher on Merseyside. A Spaniard with admittedly a wonderful record at Valencia was going to take over management of Liverpool's famous Boot Room and try and win over a disillusioned Kop. But in one season, Benitez's importation of Spanish players, coaching methods and diet has led to a revolution, even usurping Jose Mourinho's Chelsea, whereby the team has ended the season winning the ultimate trophy for any European club - the European Champions League. No fan will ever forget the comeback from a 3-0 deficit to a 3-3 scoreline, then dramatic success in the penalty shoot-out. This is the story of Rafa's remarkable success.

|Kennedy's Way: Inside Bob Paisley's Liverpool|
Folk-hero left-back Alan Kennedy - nicknamed 'Barney Rubble' by fans after "The Flintstones" character due to his straightforward, no-frills approach to the game - scored the winning goal in the 1981 European Cup final against Real Madrid, as well as the nerve-twanging winning shoot-out penalty against AC Roma in 1984, a feat which secured his position in European football history. "Kennedy's Way" examines Kennedy's footballing career under manager Bob Paisley (and, later, under Joe Fagan) and provides a retrospective account of Liverpool's dominance during those years. Drawing on Kennedy's memories of the period, as well as those of other players and backroom staff involved with the Reds at that time, it is an irreverent, revealing account of the dressing-room culture at the club while it was at the height of its powers. This book concludes with reflections on Kennedy's post-playing life and on the trajectory of Liverpool since the Heysel and Hillsborough tragedies, in 1985 and 1989 respectively, right up to recent events at the Club, including the exit of Grard Houllier and the team's performance under new manager Rafael Benitez.

|Liverpool in the 1970s|
After a seven year drought following the win of the league title in 1965/66, the Reds, lead by the legendary Bill Shankly, started out on almost a decade's run of success when they claimed the UEFA Cup in 1972/73, followed by the FA Cup again in 1973/74. Shankly then surprisingly called it a day, handing over the managerial role to his right-hand man Bob Paisley. It wasn't long before he won silverware, taking the league championship and UEFA cup in his second season, 1975/76. Next year they just missed out on the treble, winning the League and beating Borussia Moenchengladbach in the European Cup, but losing 2-1 to Manchester United in the FA Cup final. They became the first British club to retain the European Cup, beating FC Bruge 1-0 in the final of 1977/78. Two successive League titles followed in 1978/79 and 1979/80. Written by prolific writer Phil Thomson and illustrated throughout with over 150 iconic images of that decade, this is the story of the heady days of the 1970s, when Liverpool were probably the best in Europe.

|Liverpool's Five Star Hero's: Official Story of the Kings of Europe|
Liverpool's remarkable achievement in winning the UEFA Champions League against all the odds captured the imagination of the whole football world. In a game that has been described as the most eventful European Cup Final of all time, the Reds took their place in history by winning this most famous of club trophies for an historic fifth time. No other British club can match a feat that gave Liverpool the right to keep the Cup forever! An official book is to be published in August to celebrate this achievement entitled "Liverpool's Five Star Heroes." If you were one of the 40,000 who helped make history with the Reds in Istanbul or one of the 500,000 who took to the city streets to welcome the players home, you can already proudly declare: "I was part of something very special." Of course, you might want to dedicate somebody else's name in the book, like a friend or a relative who attended one of the other finals or who is simply a fanatical Liverpudlian. The memories of Istanbul will never fade just as those who tasted the glory that was Rome '77 continue to feel a special sense of pride. "Five Star Heroes" naturally majors on the sensational fightback against AC Milan in the Ataturk Stadium and the remarkable scenes that followed, but it will also become the definite record of Liverpool's European Cup achievements. It all started with the glory that was Rome in 1977 when German champions Borussia Moenchengladbach were vanquished. The following year the legendary Kenny Dalglish helped to overshadow Bruges at Wembley. In 1981 the mighty Real Madrid were the next victims of Bob Paisley's untouchables and in 1984 it was back to Rome's Olympic Stadium where Roma were beaten in their own backyard. "Liverpool's Five Star heroes" tells the inside story of these victories, while saluting Rafa Benitez and the modern Liverpool. It is packed full of interviews with the legends who helped make history. This book, featuring Steven Gerrard on the cover proudly holding the European Cup above his head, will be a must publication for Liverpudlians worldwide.

|The Miracle of Istanbul: Liverpool FC, from Paisley to Benitez|
After 20 years off the major European football stage, Liverpool FC, under new Spanish manager Rafael Benitez, faced utter humiliation at half-time in the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul. Three goals down to the brutally efficient and talented AC Milan, the inexperienced new Liverpool - an uneasy mix of local heroes, young Spaniards and soon-to-be-outcasts - was staring down the barrel of a possible record European Cup final defeat in front of 40,000 of its own fans and a global TV audience of hundreds of millions. That is until six extraordinary minutes of second-half carnage, allied to Red courage and resolve, changed the very course of European football history and mapped a new direction for the future of a club with a magnificent European past. "The Miracle of Istanbul" offers an insight into the many foreign highs and domestic lows of the amazing 2004-05 Liverpool season, as well as mapping out key connections between the great Liverpool European legacy of the 1970s and '80s and the new Benitez era - via a detour of the ultimately doomed Gerard Houllier period of initial Continental Liverpool management. It also looks at some of the key players of the recent successful European campaign - Gerrard, Hamman, Carragher and the erratic Jerzy Dudek among them - and at the music and football cultures in the city that have uniquely shaped what is still known locally as the Liverpool Way. The book compares the new Liverpool manager with his key rivals: his Iberian 'cousin' Jose Mourhino at Chelsea and the fiercely competitive David Moyes at neighbours Everton. But it ends - as it must - on that glorious night of 25 May in Istanbul, with fans' recollections and memories. It also asks: exactly what does the 2005 European triumph mean for the city of Liverpool and for the future direction of Liverpool football club under its modest but impressive new Spanish leadership?

|The Official Liverpool FC Illustrated History|
League champions 18 times, FA Cup winners six times and League Cup winners six times. It's a record that makes Liverpool the most successful English Club. In Europe the tally is also huge: UEFA Cup winners four times and European Cup winners a massive four times. To look at the players that have worn the famous red shirt is to wander through a historical who's who of world football: the story of Liverpool Football Club is rich in success and glory, but it is also rich in tradition: the famous bootroom ethic permeates every corridor of the Club; the Kop, despite its modernisation into an all-seater stand, still offers a fanatical support that, many claim, is worth a goal start.

|The Official Liverpool FC Illustrated History|
If it weren't for one man, Liverpool Football Club would never have been born. When Everton left Anfield in a dispute over rent in 1892, club Chairman John Houlding stayed behind - along with a handful of supporters and just three first-team players. But he was determined to see football continue at the ground. He formed a new club from scratch, chose the name Liverpool...and created a legend. Even John Houlding couldn't have predicted how successful it would become. More than 100 years on, no English club can match the Liverpool FC roll of honour: League champions 18 times, FA Cup winners six times, League Cup winners six times, European Cup winners four times and UEFA Cup winners three times. The Official Liverpool FC Illustrated History charts the rise and rise of the Reds to the very summit of the English game, from the struggles of the early years through to Gerard Houllier's record-breaking treble in 2001 and beyond. It tells the story of a club that is rich in tradition: the famous Boot Room ethic that has permeated through every corridor of Anfield; plus the awesome support offered by the Kop - still a hotbed of fanaticism despite its modernisation into an all-seater stand. It recalls the deeds of legendary managers like Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley, and salutes the achievements of today's inspirational boss, Gerard Houllier. It also celebrates the litany of players whose names are etched in folklore: from Liddell to Hunt and Keegan; through Dalglish, Hansen and Souness; to the present young guns, Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen. Featuring three never-before-published photo archives, this is a fascinating journey through a century of sporting heroics, incorporating both incredible victories and tearful failures. It is a story rich with incident: from the triumphs of Rome and Paris, to the tragedies of Heysel and Hillsbrough. Most of all, it is a story of incredible passion and pride. For Liverpool Football Club somehow manages to inspire not only its own fans, but football followers the world over. To millions, Liverpool FC is an extremely special club - and this is its incredibly special story.
