Download and read online Indentured in PDF and EPUB “How can the NCAA blithely wreck careers without regard to due process or common fairness? How can it act so ruthlessly to enforce rules that are so petty? Why won’t anybody stand up to these outrageous violations of American values and American justice?” In the four years since Joe Nocera asked those ques­tions in a controversial New York Times column, the National Collegiate Athletic Association has come under fire. Fans have begun to realize that the athletes involved in the two biggest college sports, men’s bas­ketball and football, are little more than indentured servants. Millions of teenagers accept scholarships to chase their dreams of fame and fortune—at the price of absolute submission to the whims of an organiza­tion that puts their interests dead last. For about 5 percent of top-division players, college ends with a golden ticket to the NFL or the NBA. But what about the overwhelming majority who never turn pro? They don’t earn a dime from the estimated $13 billion generated annually by college sports—an ocean of cash that enriches schools, conferences, coaches, TV networks, and apparel companies . . . everyone except those who give their blood and sweat to entertain the fans. Indentured tells the dramatic story of a loose-knit group of rebels who decided to fight the hypocrisy of the NCAA, which blathers endlessly about the purity of its “student-athletes” while exploiting many of them: The ones who get injured and drop out be­cause their scholarships have been revoked. The ones who will neither graduate nor go pro. The ones who live in terror of accidentally violating some obscure rule in the four-hundred-page NCAA rulebook. Joe Nocera and Ben Strauss take us into the inner circle of the NCAA’s fiercest enemies. You’ll meet, among others . . . ·Sonny Vaccaro, the charismatic sports marketer who convinced Nike to sign Michael Jordan. Dis­gusted by how the NCAA treated athletes, Vaccaro used his intimate knowledge of its secrets to blow the whistle in a major legal case. ·Ed O’Bannon, the former UCLA basketball star who realized, years after leaving college, that the NCAA was profiting from a video game using his image. His lawsuit led to an unprecedented antitrust ruling. ·Ramogi Huma, the founder of the National Col­lege Players Association, who dared to think that college players should have the same collective bargaining rights as other Americans. ·Andy Schwarz, the controversial economist who looked behind the façade of the NCAA and saw it for what it is: a cartel that violates our core values of free enterprise. Indentured reveals how these and other renegades, working sometimes in concert and sometimes alone, are fighting for justice in the bare-knuckles world of college sports.

Download and read online Indentured in PDF and EPUB For more than half a century, the NCAA has been one of the most powerful, and impregnable, institutions in America, a cartel that acted to prevent the athletes from receiving any money from their labors, while enriching everyone else involved in college sports. The athletes had signed up for indentured servitude to chase their dreams of pro glory, with the NCAA as their overlords. Wrapping itself in the mantle of "amateurism," the NCAA was ruthless in its application of its rules that prevented players from receiving anything for their talents aside from their scholarships. A scholarship that didn't necessarily guarantee an education or a diploma. But in 2000, three West Coast economists decided to take on this cartel, and laid the groundwork for a major lawsuit. At around the same time, a former UCLA football player named Ramogi Huma began an organization to help and represent college athletes. A college quarterback decided to try to unionize his team. And a former sneaker marketer, Sonny Vaccaro, who was the first to pay college coaches to get their teams to wear his sneakers, quit his job and began to crusade against the NCAA. Indentured is the story of how this small band of renegades, working sometimes in concert and sometimes alone, took on the NCAA, nearly bringing it to its knees.

Download and read online Emigrants to America in PDF and EPUB In the record office of the City of London is a register containing the names of 3,398 servants bound out for service in the American colonies and the West Indies. Details concerning nearly 2,000 of these indentured servants, taken from the original indenture forms, were published over twenty years ago. Yet information on 1,544 additional servants, whose names appear in the register but for whom no indentures survive, had never been published. With this present work, however, we now have a published list of these missing servants as well as a digest of associated data. In addition to the servant's name and the name of the transporting agent, the tabulation includes the name of the colony to which the servant was shipped and the date--either the date of the indenture form itself or the Assize at which it was registered. The majority of these servants were destined for Maryland, Pennsylvania, or the West Indies.

Throughout the eighteenth century the British rented such armies from the Landgraves of Hesse-Cassel under the auspices of the so-called subsidy treaties. Forced to defend the liberties of English elites, Hessian conscripts were themselves subjected to a harsh authoritarian rule. In this engaging book, Peter K. Taylor reconstructs the world of these peasants and their families." "Taylor examines the political economy of the international trade in military units and shows how Hesse's notorious system of military conscription was in fact nourished by England's demand for armies for hire. Drawing on tax records, muster lists, and parish registers, he then determines who served in the Landgraves' army, what this service required, and how the subsidy system transformed peasant families and the rural economy. Hessian soldiers, he shows, began their military life in their own villages and often spent most of their terms of service there, but as outsiders to the communities of their childhood. Providing readings of three folktales collected in Hesse-Cassel by the Brothers Grimm, Taylor considers how the conditions of conscription and military taxation in the Hessian state affected peasant kinship networks. In vivid detail, he demonstrates that peasant soldiers - and their sisters, lovers, wives, and families - helped pay for eighteenth-century advances in English liberty with their own lives and culture."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Download and read online Indentured Servitude Revisited in PDF and EPUB Gaines Bradford Jackson is a man with a goal of informing the public that it appears the democracy idea of the American founding fathers seems to be crumbling into a seedy oligarchy, which is robbing the average citizen of his/her civil liberties. He has compiled and written a provocative book in his latest creation entitled Indentured Servitude Revisited. He has cleverly written about honesty, the objectives of the original founding fathers, and a historical overview of how the US Constitution evolved. Slavery founded America, and it was supposedly done away with, but its ugly head has resurfaced time and time again in gradually eroding the individual freedoms supposedly guaranteed by the US Constitution. Jackson builds a good case of describing the original sin of our founding fathers when they made the judiciary self-regulated. This out-of-control system has allowed for democracy to be eroded in America and has allowed the old axiom of the greed for money to rule the ones in power to cause the existing oligarchy (rule by select extremely wealthy individuals only) to come about in its ugly plan of stealing the citizens' civil liberties and attempting to commit everyone to become a slave of big money. The book is fully documented to support the premises being made. All Americans should read this book and begin to push for the twenty-eighth amendment with the inclusion of the JAIL amendment proposals to put a check on the runaway legal system before it is too late. Jackson offers a solution, only if enough Americans become fully informed and begin to question everything government does and push to remove the career politician--another one of the roots of evil that has oozed into our government and ruined it along with the lifetime appointments of the "good old boys" known as the Supreme Court justices. Read this book and get mad, as you have a full right to get angry for what has been going on, and inform your neighbors and all others you know (in particular your state representatives and senators); let us change America together before something really awful happens. The plain truth is revealed in this book as a hallmark read for anyone that does not like or accept what our central government is attempting on every law-abiding citizen in the continental United States of America.
