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 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.

The future looks bright for Boston couple John Bodine and Ruby Dawes. John’s online gaming business is growing, and they’re planning a family. But when Ruby receives a life-changing diagnosis, and their insurance won’t cover her treatment, John makes a risky move. He steals a customer’s identity and files a false medical claim. It works perfectly—until the customer contacts John with a startling proposition . . . If John and Ruby play a little game he’s devised, he won’t report their fraud. The rules of “Criminal” are simple: commit real crimes. But if they fail, there will be fatal consequences. John assumes it’s a sick joke—until people start dying. Now John and Ruby can’t disappear—and they can’t go to the police. Their only option is to keep playing, while trying to outwit a psychopath who has no intention of letting them leave this game alive. “Tight, twisty and terrific, it further establishes Palmer as a force to be reckoned with.” —The Providence Journal “Unrelentingly suspenseful.” —Publishers Weekly

In the middle of one of the worst civil wars in Syria's history, Louise Monaghan crossed a heavily guarded border to save her six-year-old daughter from the father who had callously snatched her from her home in Cyprus. Not knowing what lay ahead, the Irish mother tricked her ex-husband into believing she still loved him and wanted them to live together as a family, purely so that she could see her kidnapped child again. Once in his homeland, Louise too was held captive, locked inside a run-down house day and night with little food and no hope of being released. Sick from polluted water, severely beaten by her ex-husband and abandoned by the Turkish men paid to rescue her, she took her little girl and made a daring escape. The journey they made through bomb attacks and sniper fire, and across a heavily patrolled mountain range in the dead of night, was a harrowing ordeal. Yet miraculously they both survived, and Stolen is Louise's breathtaking account of events.

But when his past catches up with him, Sean faces an ultimatum: clear his name and help the FBI take down a rogue agent, or go to prison and lose everything he holds dear. With only Agent Noah Armstrong as his back-up and forced to keep Lucy in the dark, Sean steps back into his old world. But the longer he's undercover, the more dangerous the game becomes. More than Sean's future with Lucy is at stake—so is his life. Lucy can't imagine Sean would keep secrets from her—until an FBI agent casts doubt about who he really is...and who he used to be. Why did Sean quit his job with his brother and move to New York? Why hasn't he told her anything about his new job? With more questions than answers, Lucy doesn't know who to believe or who she can trust. All she knows is that Sean is in grave danger, and this time, it's personal.
