A Collection of Stories That Demonstrate the Power and Impact of Sports
Author: Megan E. Miranda
If Not for Athletics is a collection of stories about the many ways in which sports impacts our lives. From the excitement of big wins to the agony of gut-wrenching losses, some of the nation's top athletics administrators share the moments when they witnessed the true power of sports and how it can be a vehicle to promote healing, equality and positive change. "There are so many ways in which sports shapes and affects our lives or the lives of others. Rarely do we stop to consider its true impact. If Not for Athletics brings to light the full breadth of sports' influence and provides great insight into what we'd be missing out on if we did not have athletics. A book that will be enjoyed by every sports fan, coach or athlete but a must-read for anyone that works in sports." -Joe Castiglione, Director of Athletics at the University of Oklahoma "I loved reading If Not For Athletics. Zac did a great job capturing the special nature of athletics. So many think that athletics is "only" about games, but Zac shows us the many great life lessons that people learn from participation in athletics. The book is truly inspiring." -Mark Murphy, President of the Green Bay Packers "If Not for Athletics has significant meaning for those of us who have competed in individual and team sports. Those that did will read with understanding! For those that did not, they will enjoy and wish they had." -Barry Switzer, Former Head Football Coach for the Dallas Cowboys and the University of Oklahoma "If Not for Athletics is not a sports book; rather, it is a collection of entertaining and inspiring stories. Similar to ESPN's 30 for 30 series, If Not for Athletics isn't about the sporting event - it's about the people, the traditions, the cultures, the communities. It's authentic." -Rick Hart, Director of Athletics at SMU "If Not for Athletics is tremendous at sharing the true life of everyday events working in the profession of Intercollegiate Athletics. This should be a must read for anyone interested in pursuing our profession. It brings out passionate emotions of the day to day experiences you totally can relate to while shaping the lives of our student -athletes educational bond with their University, community, and alumni." -Kathy Beauregard, Director of Athletics at Western Michigan University "Often athletics seems to be just about winning and losing, but there is another side to athletics which is often overlooked - the human dimension. It is this dimension which transcends time, championships, momentary elation or dejection. Athletics teaches many lessons which are transformative and which stay with an athlete for a lifetime. If Not For Athletics contains many stories which exemplify the uplifting influence of athletics." -Tom Osborne, Former U.S. Senator and Head Football Coach/Athletic Director at the University of Nebraska
The history of clothing begins with the origin of man, and fashionable dress can be traced as far back as 25,000 years ago. Recent scientific explorations have uncovered graves in northern Russia with skeletons covered in beads made of mammoth ivory that once adorned clothing made of animal skin. The Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans each made major contributions to fashion's legacy from their textile innovations, unique clothing designs and their early use of accessories, cosmetics, and jewelry. During the Middle Ages, "fashion trends" emerged as trade and commerce thrived allowing the merchant class to afford to emulate the fashions worn by royals. However, it is widely believed that fashion didn't became an industry until the industrial and commercial revolution during the latter part of the 18th century. Since then, the industry has grown exponentially. Today, fashion is one of the biggest businesses in the world, with hundreds of billions of dollars in turnover and employing tens of millions of workers. It is both a profession, an industry, and in the eyes of many, an art. The A to Z of the Fashion Industry examines the origins and history of this billion-dollar industry. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced entries on designers, models, couture houses, significant articles of apparel and fabrics, trade unions, and the international trade organizations.
