Michael Sells brand new Imagine That series—short, popular histories of how the past didn't quite happen—launches with four titles this year.
Each book is a flight of imagination that explores how the smallest changes to history could have spiraled out of control.
Would a happy ending to Casablanca have led to a more prejudiced world? Would the death of a cat have been the most costly road accident in the history of technology?
Imagine That . . .

Soccer. Sport. Without football, Nelson Mandela might never have become president of South Africa, and were it not for FIFA's loopholes Africa could be enjoying the fruits of a football-induced windfall.Imagine that. So much rides on 90 minutes of sport. Was one goal really the difference between freedom and brutality for an entire team? Would children be more respectful if the substitutes' bench had never been introduced? In Imagine that Football, young historian Michael Sells reveals the most influential decisions in the history of football and reveals how they might have changed the world.
