A History of Base Stealing

The stolen base is one of the most fascinating plays in all of sports. In no other sport is the opportunity present for the offense to literally take away what belongs to the defense. In other sports it is the ball (or puck) that must do the scoring; in baseball, however, it is the runner, and base stealing is the runner's greatest weapon. Not just ball games but entire World Series have turned on a steal. This book traces the history of the stolen base and stealing in the major leagues from its humble beginnings through its current status as an indispensable part of a team's offense. Also covered are the players who were synonymous with base stealing: Ty Cobb, Luis Aparicio, Maury Wills, Lou Brock, Rickey Henderson, and others. The most memorable steals in baseball history are also recalled.

Australische Aborigine-Literatur: Kulturelle Identität und literarische Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten der 'stolen generation'

Zwischen 1910 und 1970 verschleppte die australische Regierung schätzungsweise 20.000 bis 25.000 Kinder mit einem aborigenen und einem weißen Elternteil, um sie auf ein Leben in der ‘weißen’ Gesellschaft Australiens vorzubereiten. Erklärtes Ziel der australischen Regierung: schrittweise Assimilierung der aborigenen Bevölkerung. Dabei nahm sie die Zerstörung der Kultur der Aborigines und Torres Strait Insulaner bewusst in Kauf. Lange Zeit wurden die Opfer dieser Politik und die daraus für sie resultierenden Probleme nicht anerkannt oder entsprechend gewürdigt. Erst am 13. Februar 2008 entschuldigte sich der australische Premierminister Kevin Rudd offiziell bei den Betroffenen und ebnete damit den Weg zur Versöhnung. Ein bedeutender Schritt auf diesem Weg ist dabei für die Opfer das Erzählen ihrer Geschichten. Diese Untersuchung widmet sich exemplarisch der Analyse von Sally Morgans My Place, Doris Pilkingtons Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence und Jane Harrisons Stolen. Die Textauswahl erhebt nicht den Anspruch repräsentativ zu sein, liefert aber einen Einblick in die verschiedenen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten der Genres Autobiografie, biografische Erzählung, Roman und Drama.

The sound of the river, ever-present, had finally intruded on his consciousness. If Nate was playing by himself outside, that damn river was too close for comfort. Instantly forgetting everything else, John hurried to the door, pushed it right open, stepped to the edge. John Quarry is on vacation with his small son, Nate, when a tragedy occurs: during an overnight stop in the Fraser Canyon, the child disappears and is presumed lost to the river. The coroner's verdict is death by drowning, although the body is never recovered. While the authorities consider the matter closed, a provocative dream convinces John that his son is not dead, but stolen. With little hope and only a single clue, John sets out on a desperate search. It takes him from B.C. to bustling Calgary where he is arrested, to the Alberta badlands where he is nearly murdered, and to the foothills of the towering Rocky Mountains where he is forced to undertake a final, perilous journey. To find his son and save his own life, John must be more than brave and better than clever. He must have the blind faith found only in a parent in extremes.
