Over 70 authors and veterans share the sacrifices so many of America's veterans have made, in peacetime and in war, throughout the 20th century. You'll read about Duty, Honor, Courage - from the testing of a submarine, to the loss of the Space Shuttle Challenger, to the everyday sacrifice of men and women in uniform, whether serving during peace or war. You'll walk bloodied beaches, soar over enemy turf, pray, crawl in and out of caves, tend the wounded, shoot and be shot at, feel your heart race with fright as flak comes at you from every direction...walk the deck...hit the deck...feel the heat as fire dances across the deck, into the cockpit and into the foxhole you occupy. Your heart will constrict as the man in front of you takes the bullet meant for you. You'll know the painful bite of shrapnel, the gnawing ache hunger brings and red-hot anger as a comrade falls. But most of all, you'll experience total, unabridged fear as you watch the enemy advance through the eyes of the author, and a swelling of pride as you meet America's veterans.

This book explores the interface between intellectual property and human rights law and policy. The relationship between these two fields has captured the attention of governments, policymakers, and activist communities in a diverse array of international and domestic political and judicial venues. These actors often raise human rights arguments as counterweights to the expansion of intellectual property in areas including freedom of expression, public health, education, privacy, agriculture, and the rights of indigenous peoples. At the same time, creators and owners of intellectual property are asserting a human rights justification for the expansion of legal protections. This book explores the legal, institutional, and political implications of these competing claims: by offering a framework for exploring the connections and divergences between these subjects; by identifying the pathways along which jurisprudence, policy, and political discourse are likely to evolve; and by serving as an educational resource for scholars, activists, and students.

Appearance- and performance-enhancing drugs specifically, anabolic steroids (APEDs) provide a tempting competitive advantage for amateur baseball players. But this shortcut can exact a fatal cost on talented athletes. In his urgent book Suicide Squeeze, William Kashatus chronicles the experiences of Taylor Hooton and Rob Garibaldi, two promising high school baseball players who abused APEDs in the hopes of attracting professional scouts and Division I recruiters. However, as a result of their steroid abuse, they ended up taking their own lives. In Suicide Squeeze named for the high-risk play in baseball to steal home Kashatus identifies the symptoms and dangers of steroid use among teens. Using archival research and interviews with the Hooton and Garibaldi families, he explores the lives and deaths of these two troubled young men, the impact of their suicides on MLB, and the ongoing fight against adolescent APED use by their parents. A passionate appeal to prevent additional senseless deaths by athletes, Suicide Squeeze is an important contribution to debates on youth and sports and on public policy. "
