"Poor Joshua!" lamented Justice Harry Blackmun in his famous dissent. "Victim of repeated attacks by an irresponsible, bullying, obviously cowardly, and intemperate father, and abandoned by respondents who placed him in a dangerous predicament and who knew or learned what was going on, and yet did essentially nothing...." Even so, the Supreme Court, by a 6-to-3 margin, absolved Wisconsin officials of any negligence in a case that had left a young child profoundly damaged for the rest of his life. Does the Constitution protect children from violent parents? As Lynne Curry shows, that was the central question at issue when Melody DeShaney initially sued Wisconsin for failing to protect her battered son Joshua from her estranged husband, thus violating her son's constitutional right to due process. The resulting case, DeShaney v. Winnebago County (1989), was a highly emotional one pitting the family against the state and challenging our views on domestic relations, child abuse, and the responsibilities--and limits--of state action regarding the private lives of citizens. The Supreme Court's controversial decision ruled that the Constitution was intended to limit state action rather than oblige the state to interfere in private affairs. It viewed the Due Process Clause as a limitation on the state's power to act, not a guarantee of safety and security, not even for children who depend on the state for their survival. In this first book-length analysis of the case, Curry helps readers understand how considerations of "what should be" are not always reflected in legal reasoning. Curry brings to light details that have been ignored or neglected and covers both the criminal and civilproceedings to retell a story that still shocks. Drawing on legal briefs and social work case files, she reviews the legal machinations of the state and includes personal stories of key actors: family members, social workers, police officers, child advocates, and opposing attorneys. She then clearly analyzes the majority and dissenting opinions from the Court, as well as reactions from the court of public opinion. Joshua DeShaney depended on the state for protection but found no satisfaction in the courts when the state failed him. The DeShaney Case offers a much-needed perspective on the dilemmas his predicament posed for our legal system and fresh insight into our ambivalent views of the role that the state should play in our daily lives.

Sport ist überall und nirgends in Schule und Hochschule, im Alltag und im Gesundheitswesen. Bisher war die Ausbildung von Experten und Sportlehrern in den verschiedenen Berufszweigen sehr heterogen. Mit dem Bachelor-Studium und dem Memorandum des deutschen Sportlehrerverbandes stabilisieren sich Kernmodule der sportdidaktischen und sportwissenschaftlichen Studiengänge an deutschsprachigen Hochschulen. Dieses umfassende Lehrbuch Sport setzt hier an. Es bietet alle wesentlichen Themen und Inhalte für ein erfolgreiches Sportstudium. In diesem Stil ist es das erste auf dem Markt, das den gesamten Kerninhalt des Sportstudiums in einem Band anbietet. Vom Schulsport über den Freizeit-, Breiten-, Fitness- und Gesundheitssport bis hin zum Wettkampf- und Spitzensport enthält es alle wesentlichen Themen und Inhalte für ein erfolgreiches Sportstudium. Die Autoren sind renommierte Experten der führenden Hochschulen. Sie sind Trainingswissenschaftler, Mediziner, Sozialwissenschaftler und Pädagogen, die die wesentlichen Inhalte aus Theorie und Praxis des Sports speziell für das Sportstudium kompetent und knapp zusammengestellt haben. Der Text ist lesefreundlich aufbereitet, die wichtigsten Inhalte sind in prägnanten Merksätzen hervorgehoben. Zahlreiche praktische Beispiele und ca. 400 farbige Abbildungen und Grafiken veranschaulichen die Inhalte aus Theorie und Praxis. Übungsfragen zur Lernkontrolle helfen dem Studierenden, sich die Inhalte besser einzuprägen. Dieses voll vierfarbige, abbildungsreiche und didaktisch gut aufbereitete Lehrbuch vermittelt somit das gesamte relevante Grundwissen, ohne das man im Sport nicht auskommt. Obwohl es sich auf die Inhalte der neuen Bachelorstudiengänge konzentriert, bietet es darüber hinaus zentrale Grundlagen für die verschiedenen Masterstudiengänge, Fort- und Weiterbildungen von Sportlehrern und Sportexperten in den vielfältigen Berufsfeldern wie auch für den Leistungskurs Sport.
