Elim, The Determined Athlete is based on a true story and told according to the pup. Elim, The Determined Athlete, reveals the real reason a four month old Alaska village husky joined champion musher, Jeff King's team on the Iditarod trail. Uplifting and motivating, the reader learns about setting goals, working hard, proving oneself, and ignoring peer rebuffs. Jeff King assisted the pup in becoming a real athlete -- a sled dog, instead of just another basketball wanna-be.

A boy looks up. He sees a Cardassian's hand on his shoulder and knows that this is usually a prelude to a beating or, if he is fortunate enough, arrest. The boy knows how many disappeared during the Occupation of Bajor. So he does the one thing he can think of: he bites the Cardassian. Then the nightmare begins. He is ripped from the family that took him in as an orphan, clothed him, fed him, always loved him unconditionally. And no matter how earnest, how caring the commander of Deep Space 9 is, the boy knows this is all a horrible mistake. How can someone from Starfleet judge him by what he looks like, not by what he is? He prays to the Prophets; he is Bajoran. They all keep telling him that the test proves the large Cardassian man is his father, that the other Cardassian -- that oily gul -- took him away from his father. But the boy keeps telling them that he is Bajoran, he only wants to go home with his father. So they send Rugal home -- to Cardassia. On the homeworld of the Cardassian Union where sacrifice and devotion to the state are surpassed only by the government's need to keep its people in check, one very lonely boy discovers that if he doesn't resist, his life -- like those of so many others -- will be added to the tally of the never-ending sacrifice.

The Athletic Crusade is the first book to systematically analyze the role of sports in the expansion of U.S. empire from the 1890s through World War II. Gerald R. Gems details how white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant males set the standard for inclusion within American society, transferred that standard to foreign territories, and subtly used American sports to instill allegedly desirable racial, moral, and commercial virtues in colonial subjects. In the realm of such expansion, sports provided a less harsh, less militaristic means of instilling belief in a dominant system?s values and principles than more overt methods such as war. The process of change, however, had unexpected consequences as subordinate groups adapted or even rejected American overtures. Sport became a means for nonwhites to challenge whiteness, Social Darwinism, and cultural hegemony by establishing their own physical prowess, claiming a measure of esteem, and creating a greater sense of national identity. Gems shows the direct influence of sports in Hawaii, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic and explores their comparatively minimal influence in countries such as China and Japan. Amid increasing globalization, The Athletic Crusade offers a welcome perspective on how the United States has attempted to spread its influence in the past and the implications for the future of indigenous and other societies.

Tailor, soldier, spy ... the enigmatic Garak, Cardassian-in-exile on space station Deep Space Nine, established himself rapidly - thanks largely to his superb portrayal by actor (and now author) Andrew Robinson - as one of the best-loved characters on Star Trek DS9. Garak refers to himself as 'just a simple tailor' - but everyone knows that there's more to him than that. Ex-member of the Cardassian invasion forces; ex-member of the Obsidian Order, the dreaded Cardassian secret police; cynic, wit, epicure, man of mystery: - why WAS he banished from his home planet, and why does he choose to spend his exile on Deep Space Nine? Andrew Robinson, to whom Garak's voice comes as readily as his own, spins an enthralling, twisting yarn in true inimitable Garak style.
