Epilogue by Michael Moritz, Sir Alexander Chapman Ferguson CBE (born 31 December 1941) is a Scottish former football manager and player, best known for managing Manchester United from 1986 to 2013. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time and has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of football. Ferguson is often credited for valuing youth during his time with Manchester United, particularly in the 1990s with the "Class of '92", who contributed to making the club one of the most successful in the world. Ferguson played as a forward for several Scottish clubs. Towards the end of his playing career he also worked as a coach, then started his managerial career with East Stirlingshire and St Mirren. Ferguson enjoyed a highly successful period as manager of Aberdeen, winning three Scottish league championships, four Scottish Cups and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1983. He was appointed manager of Manchester United in November 1986. In his 26 years with Manchester United he won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles. He was knighted in the 1999 Queen's Birthday Honours list for his services to the game. Ferguson is the longest-serving manager of Manchester United, having overtaken Sir Matt Busby's record on 19 December 2010. He retired from management at the end of the 2012–13 season, having won the Premier League in his final season.

David Halberstam (April 10, 1934 – April 23, 2007) was an American writer, journalist, and historian, known for his work on the Vietnam War, politics, history, the Civil Rights Movement, business, media, American culture, Korean War, and later, sports journalism.[ He won a Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 1964. Halberstam was killed in a car crash in 2007, while doing research for a book. Halberstam's journalism career began at the Daily Times Leader in West Point, Mississippi, the smallest daily newspaper in Mississippi. He covered the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement for The Tennessean in Nashville. John Lewis later stated that Halberstam was the only journalist in Nashville who would cover the Nashville sit-ins, organized by the Nashville Student Movement which Halberstam focused on in his 1998 book The Children. Halberstam's fiery, rebellious streak first came out when covering the civil rights movement as he protested against the lies of the authorities who portrayed the civil rights protesters as violent and dangerous. Later in his career, Halberstam turned to sports, focusing on the relationships among several members of the Boston Red Sox in the 1940s; and The Education of a Coach, about New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Much of his sportswriting focuses on the personalities of the players and the times they lived in as much as on the games themselves.

Edna Dean Proctor (September 18, 1829 – December 18, 1923) was an American author and poet. Although she occasionally wrote short sketches and stories, poetry was her field. Proctor was characterized as a master of pathos. Her early environment left a vivid impression and was a moulding force in her writing. Early in life, Proctor was a writer of poetry, but not until the Civil War —which aroused the patriotic element within her— were her verses known around the country when her national poems sounded like a bugle. Her name became dear to loyal soldiers, and her appeals were read beside the camp fires as they were repeated in the New England homes and schools. No battle songs did more to sustain the sentiment of patriotism in the soldiery than those of Proctor, which were found in her volume of collected poems. "The Stripes and Stars," written in April, 1861; "Compromise," inscribed to Congress, July 4, 1861; "Who's Ready?" written in July, 1862, were really national anthems. A volume of her poems was published by Hurd & Houghton in 1867. A later collection was also published. Proctor never hastened the publication of anything she wrote, and being so fortunately situated in life as to be independent of circumstances, she wrote only when inspired to do so, hence the world received her best work.

Leningrad: Aurora Art Publishers, 1973. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover in slipcase. The format is approximately 7.75 by 11.25 inches. Decorative front illustration. Plain cardboard slipcase (worn and soiled). Minor wear to exposed spine. 179,  pages. Illustrations (color). Appendix: From the History of National Art Glass. Appendix: Soviet Artists of Glass. Biographical Notes. Bibliography. List of Abbreviations. Text is in English with abbreviated versions in French and German. The history of glass in Russia is non-linear and tragic: in each new era, it began from scratch, with the revival of closed industries and the restoration of the continuity of schools. After the revolution, large factories that represented glass at the World Exhibitions were actually destroyed or repurposed for the production of cheap mass products. However, even it was not enough to meet all the needs of a vast country. In the 1930s, the plight of the industry attracted the attention of the authorities and restoration began: the glass industry department Glavsteklo was created, and the construction of factories was launched. For example, an experimental workshop was opened on the basis of the Demino Mirror Factory in Leningrad under the guidance of sculptor Vera Mukhina. The rapid recovery of the industry was interrupted by the Great Patriotic War. After 1945, the history of glass production actually began anew.

Inscribed by the author on the title page. Inscription reads For Douglas with best wishes, Charles Murray. DJ has some wear and soiling. Charles Alan Murray (born January 8, 1943) is an American political scientist. Murray earned a BA in history from Harvard University in 1965 and a Ph.D. in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1974. He is the W.H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. Murray's work is highly controversial. His book Losing Ground: American Social Policy, 1950–1980 (1984) discussed the American welfare system. In the book The Bell Curve (1994), he and co-author Richard Herrnstein argue that in 20th century American society, intelligence became a better predictor than parental socioeconomic status or education level of many individual outcomes, including income, job performance, pregnancy out of wedlock, and crime, and that social welfare programs and education efforts to improve social outcomes for the disadvantaged are largely counterproductive. Murray has indicated that he believes that the government is over regulated and has expressed support for disobeying regulations he considers to be unjust. Murray supports having simpler tax codes and decreasing government benefits, which could incentivize childbearing. In June 2016, Murray wrote that replacing welfare with a universal basic income was the best way to adapt to "a radically changing U.S. jobs market"

Charles Robert Mowbray Fraser Cruttwell JP (23 May 1887 – 14 March 1941) was a British historian and academic who served as dean and later principal of Hertford College, Oxford. His field of expertise was modern European history, his most notable work being A History of the Great War, 1914–18. Cruttwell gained first-class honours at The Queen's College, Oxford, and was elected a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, in 1911, and he became a lecturer in history at Hertford College the following year. His academic career was interrupted by service in the First World War during which he suffered severe wounds; he returned to Oxford in 1919 and became dean of Hertford, and then principal of the college in 1930. Cruttwell's term as Hertford's principal saw the production of his most important scholarly works, including his war history which earned him the degree of DLitt. Beyond his college and academic duties Cruttwell held various administrative offices within the university, and was a member of its Hebdomadal Council, or ruling body. In private life Cruttwell served as a Justice of the Peace in Hampshire, where he had a home, and stood unsuccessfully for the university's parliamentary seat in the 1935 general election, representing the Conservative Party.

Sir Basil Henry Liddell Hart (31 October 1895 – 29 January 1970), commonly known as Captain B. H. Liddell Hart, was a British soldier, military historian, and military theorist. He wrote a series of military histories that proved influential among strategists. Arguing that frontal assault was bound to fail at great cost in lives, as proven in World War I, he recommended the "indirect approach" and reliance on fast-moving armored formations. His pre-war publications are known to have influenced German World War II strategy. He also helped promote the "clean Wehrmacht" argument for political purposes, when the Cold War necessitated the recruitment of a new West German army. His experiences on the Western Front affected him for the rest of his life. He wrote several booklets on infantry drill and training, which came to the attention of General Sir Ivor Maxse, commander of the 18th Division. After the war, he transferred to the Royal Army Educational Corps, where he prepared a new edition of the Infantry Training Manual. He retired from the Army in 1927. He spent the rest of his career as a theorist and writer. In 1924, he became a military correspondent for The Morning Post. He was the military correspondent of The Daily Telegraph from 1925 to 1935 and of The Times from 1935 to 1939. In 1954, Liddell Hart published his most influential work, Strategy.

Gerszi’s scholarship in the field of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Netherlandish and German art, with a focus on the influence of Pieter Bruegel, and on Rudolfine art around 1600 continues to inspire generations of art historians. Her monograph on Paulus van Vianen and two complete catalogues raisonnés on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Netherlandish drawings in the Budapest collection are point of reference for researchers. Her articles on Jan Speckaert, Lodewijk Toeput, Jacques de Gheyn, Hendrik Goltzius, Joos de Momper and Jan Brueghel, among others, are important contributions. Gerszi was elected a member of the Royal Academies for Science and the Arts of Belgium. She won the Széchenyi Prize–the Hungarian State’s highest award for scientific achievement.
