    For close to half a century after World War II, Marty Glickman was the voice of New York sports. His distinctive style of broadcasting, on television and especially on the radio, garnered for him legions of fans who would not miss his play-by-play accounts. His vocabulary and method of broadcasting left an indelible mark on the industry, and many of today's most famous sportscasters were Glickman disciples. In Marty Glickman, Jeffrey S. Gurock showcases the life of this important contributor to American popular culture.In addition to the stories of how he became a master of American sports airwaves, Marty Glickman has also been remembered as a Jewish athlete who, a decade before he sat in front of a microphone, was cynically barred from running in a signature track event in the 1936 Olympics by anti-Semitic American Olympic officials. This lively biography details this traumatic event and explores not only how he coped for decades with that painful rejection but also examines how he dealt with other anti-Semitic and cultural obstacles that threatened to stymie his career. Marty Glickman is a story of adversity and triumph, of sports and minority group struggles, told within the context of the prejudicial barriers that were common to thousands, if not millions, of fellow Jews of his generation as they aimed to make it in America.

    Thoughts of disaster have flashed across the mind of every rugby player at some stage in his playing career - whether as a full-back standing in terror beneath a 'garryowen' or as a young prop facing the chilling smile of a seasoned campaigner before the first set scrum. Luckily most disasters happen to others and this book makes no apologies for taking pleasure in the misfortunes that have befallen rugby players around the world and at all levels of the game. Nor does this book end with the final whistle but, as with the game itself, continues well into the evening where disasters occur with even more alarming frequency and bizarre records are established and broken by a fraternity always prepared to rise to a challenge.
