From the time cars were invented just before the turn of the 20th century, men have loved driving fast in them. It was almost a compulsion of pioneers like Emile Levassor and Karl Benz to make their machines go fast. Racing fever began in Europe, with races happening from point to point, city to city, on existing roads. Open-wheel road racing there evolved into the super high tech, big budget sport of Formula One racing. American open-wheel racing matured on oval tracks, most famously the one at the Brickyard in Indianapolis, home to the worlds most famous auto race, the Indianapolis 500, the crown jewel of the Indy Car circuit. Racing also took on a distinctly American form, with stock car racing evolving into one of the most popular spectator sports in the country, with NASCAR as its multi-billion dollar brand.

Baseball9781422234570$35.64$24.95

Andrew Luke

Baseball is known as Americas national pastime, but its popularity did not happen overnight. The modern game evolved in the late 1800s in the Midwest, and by the turn of the century, Americans were telling stories about heroic exploits on the baseball diamond. Players from Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth to Andrew McCutchen and Albert Pujols have thrilled fans with dramatic late-inning plays and thrilling World Series winning hits. The constant simplicity of baseball over more than a century is a large part of its appeal. More than 70 million people go to the ballpark every season to watch the game unfold during a leisurely summer afternoon or under the stars on a crisp September evening. Although the game has taken root in places like Japan and Latin America, baseball is still a uniquely American experience.

Jump off a cliff. Slide down a mountain. Soar 20 feet above a snowy halfpipe. These are just a few of the things extreme sport athletes willingly do every day, things the average person would never consider attempting. With the overwhelming success of sports network ESPNs X Games, the subculture of extreme sports became mainstream, even becoming part of the Olympic Games. American snowboarder Shaun White became not just one of the most popular extreme athletes, but one of the most popular athletes of any kind in the world when he won the gold medal in the halfpipe event at the 2006 Winter Olympics. From Snowboard Big Air to BMX Vert, and Moto X to Ski Slopestyle, extreme sports have changed the language and culture of mainstream athletics.

The 1958 NFL Championship game is known as The Greatest Game Ever Played, and the nationally televised overtime thriller had the country buzzing about NFL football for the first time, launching the sport into the stratosphere. College football had been the version of choice when it came to football but after 1958, however, stars like Jim Brown and Joe Namath took advantage of the sports newfound exposure to make watching NFL football appointment television every Sunday. Iconic franchises rose to prominence, like the Packers in the 1960s, the Steelers in the 1970s, the 49ers in the 1980s and the Cowboys in the 1990s. Today, NFL football is the most popular sport in America, and its signature championship, the Super Bowl, is the most watched event in the country, and one of the most watched in the world. Each book in the Inside the World of Sports series takes you from the very beginning of a sport to a look at its future.

The game of golf originated, grew and thrived in 18th and 19th century Scotland. Wooden clubs were used to hit wooden balls across the natural dunes and valleys of the Scottish coastline. The game spread across to the United States in the late 1800s. Some of the games greatest players come from America, from Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods to Patty Berg, Kathy Whitworth, and Nancy Lopez. The rest of the world caught up quickly, however, producing legends like South African Gary Player and Australian Greg Norman on the mens side, and female stars like Swedens Annika Srenstam and Australias Karrie Webb. Today, a new generation of players from Jordan Spieth to Inbee Park is leading the way into the future. Golf faces its challenges in modern day America, as it booms in places like Asia

Ice hockey is Canada's game. The modern version was crafted in Montreal, and it spread across the country on frozen ponds and lakes. Most of the games greatest players are Canadians, but even in the early days of the sports, the American influence was felt. Hobey Baker was the first great American player. He was captain of the Princeton hockey team and led his amateur team to a national championship. Baker never played the pro game, however, choosing to serve his country in World War I instead. NHL players compete for the Stanley Cup, the oldest professional sports trophy in North America. Today, 23 of the NHLs 30 teams are U.S. based, and American stars like Zach Parise and international stars like Henrik Lundqvist share the spotlight with stars from Canada like Sidney Crosby.

European settlers were fascinated by the game, and over the centuries, it evolved to the sport with modern rules and modern equipment that is played in high schools and colleges across North America today. Lacrosse is played predominantly in the colleges of the northeast, but this is changing as its popularity grows and the game spreads. The University of Denver Pioneers was the first team outside of the Eastern Time zone to win the mens Division I championship in 2015. Lacrosse is also a popular womens sport, with more than 100 sanctioned Division I programs

Worlds Fastest Human. That is the title bestowed on the man with the best time in the 100 meter dash. This event is the centerpiece of track and field, the collective name for events that are based on running, jumping and throwing. Who is the fastest? Who can jump the highest? Who can throw the farthest? These are the questions men have been challenging each other to answer for centuries. The Worlds Fastest Human was Jamaica's Usain Bolt in 2015, but for nearly 100 years, women have taken up the challenge as well. Female stars like Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Yelena Isinbayeva have inspired little girls to dream of running faster and jumping higher over the decades. Those girls have grown into the stars of today, like Alyson Felix, Genzebe Dibaba and Barbora potkov.

Wrestling 9781422234686$35.64$24.95

The sport of wrestling is quite possibly the oldest athletic pursuit of humankind. It has been depicted or described in one form or another for thousands of years and was especially celebrated by the ancient Greeks at the original Olympiads. In modern times, wrestling has been a part of every Olympic Games since they were revived in 1896. The sport developed two distinct styles: Greco-Roman and Freestyle, both of which are featured prominently on the international stage. In the United States, the sport took on a slightly different style, and high school and college athletes pursue that Folk style variation across the country. These athletes are not only boys anymore. Girls wrestling has grown in popularity in recent years, with more than 11,000 female athletes competing at the high school level. Women now also compete at the World championships and the Olympics.

Opioids and Opiates: the Silent Epidemic

Opioids and Opiates: the Silent Epidemic

The abuse of opiates (a group of drugs that includes heroin and morphine) as well as opioids (synthetic drugs that mimic the effects of opiates, including prescription painkillers like oxycodone, fentanyl, and naloxone) has a devastating impact on public health. The most recent World Drug Report found that 1 in 20 adults (age 15-64)-roughly a quarter of a billion people-had improperly used opioids or opiates during the past year. This series will provide young readers with a greater understanding of this serious public health issue. Books in this series will help readers gain a deeper understanding of the issues and concerns related to opioid and opiate development and use or abuse.

Jodee Redmond

How much do you know about the Dangers of Drug Abuse? The class of drugs known as opioids includes both illicit street drugs like heroin and fentanyl, as well as popular painkillers that are legally prescribed by doctors. All opioids can pose a threat to the user's physical and mental health if abused. Drug abuse also has the potential to affect a person's life in many ways. This book provides the facts about the current opioid epidemic, and it examines the most dangerous drugs-including two new deadly new opioids that are on the street. The book also focuses on the problems and issues that result from drug abuse and addiction. Unfortunately, the opioid crisis shows no signs of slowing down, and greater education is required to make sure it does not impact future generations.

Heroin Crisis, The9781422238257$34.21$23.95

John Cashin

Over the past decade, use of the illicit drug heroin has been rising steadily in the United States. Heroin overdose deaths have also spiked, increasing by more than 50 percent between 2007 and 2016, according to the most recently available data from the Drug Enforcement Administration. Heroin use was once relatively rare in the United States, but drug cartels from Latin America have been steadily shipping large quantities into the country. The demand for heroin has also been fuelled because it is a cheaper alternative to prescription opioid painkillers that provides a similar 'high.' This book examines the facts about the ongoing heroin crisis. It provides information about the drug cartels and their role in supplying this deadly drug, how heroin is distributed in American communities large and small, and the dangerous effects of the drug on its users.

The Vietnam War

The Vietnam War

The Vietnam War constitutes a defining moment in modern history. Starting from 1945 and lasting to 1975, The war pitted the Communists of Vietnam, supported by China and the USSR, against a number of opponents, including first the French and second the South Vietnamese and Americans, the latter supported by a number of allies. U.S. involvement began when the anti-Communist government of South Vietnam sought American aid, and this grew steadily from technical support, weapons, and equipment to the initial limited involvement of U.S. This opened the floodgates, and in the mid 1960s ever-larger numbers of U.S. troops were poured into South Vietnam as U.S. air power struck at North Vietnam. But the Americans could never fully come to grips with the psychology and tactics of the communists.U.S. forces departed Vietnam in 1973. The USA was free of this commitment, but its failure in the Vietnam War was a body blow to U.S. cohesion and belief in itself.

Homelessness and Street Crime9781534500952$53.03$37.12

Peter J Schauer

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are without a home, sleeping on streets or in temporary shelters. Nearly one-fifth of homeless Americans suffer from an untreated mental illness. Due in part to reductions in state and city budgets, many who need assistance are left to live on the street. One natural byproduct of a life on the street is criminal behavior, as adaptation to illegal acts becomes a matter of survival. Could ending homelessness reduce crime? What are ways in which that could be achieved, and whose responsibility is it? Are the homeless being unfairly blamed for street crime? This volume offers a close examination of the issue from a variety of viewpoints.

Political correctness, better known as PC, flourished in institutions of higher learning in the 1990s. With the rise of social media, a second wave of PC culture has emerged that is more aggressive than the first. It seems to many that nearly everyone is a target, at risk of being labeled a racist or misogynist based on one short tweet. The movement, though intended to be inclusive and pluralistic, has its detractors. Is political correctness protective or is it an attack on freedom? Do knee-jerk reactions cancel out the opportunity for thoughtful discourse? And what does this culture mean for our future?

People need relationships-not only to be happy, but also to be physically and psychologically healthy.
