Has A Child Been Molested?

Has A Child Been Molested? Lowest new price: $197.71
Lowest used price: $62.53
List price: $29.95
Author: Lee Coleman
Brand: Brand: Berkeley Creek Productions

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN are sexually abused, but the system created in the 1970's by a few mental health professionals and adopted by law enforcement and child protection agencies is making things worse. In this book, psychiatrist Lee Coleman and attorney Patrick Clancy describe how and why this is happening. By explaining the history of the child sexual abuse prevention movement, and exposing the fatal romance between mental health and law enforcement, the authors show how caring and intelligent people, including police officers, social workers, child therapists, teachers and even parents, may unwittingly create false accusations of sexual abuse.

The result is a new form of state-sponsored abuse of both children and those unjustly accused. Analysis of real investigations, such as the notorious McMartin Preschool case, makes it an indispensable guide for attorneys, judges, investigators and all those who seek the truth of sexual abuse accusations. The book's importance does not end there: it also calls for legislative reform of our currently misguided child protection system. As such, Has a Child Been Molested? Is important for anyone who believes that child protection and justice need not be incompatible.

Neither Fear Nor Favor: Deputy United States Marshal John Tom Sisemore

Neither Fear Nor Favor: Deputy United States Marshal John Tom Sisemore Lowest new price: $18.95
Lowest used price: $59.32
List price: $18.95
Author: Wesley Harris

True story of the exploits of one of the U.S. Marshals' greatest "unknown" deputies. John Tom Sisemore enforced the law with "neither fear nor favor" in the Western District of Louisiana in the 1890's. One newspaper in 1896 reported, "John T. Sisemore has the reputation of being one of the best and most efficient officers in the service of the government; in fact his superiors say there is no better, braver, or more zealous deputy in the United States." The author uses court documents, old newspapers, and interviews of Sisemore's descendants to paint a compelling history of life--and death--at the turn of the century.

Dead Silence: Fear and Terror on the Anthrax Trail

Dead Silence: Fear and Terror on the Anthrax Trail Lowest new price: $1.50
Lowest used price: $2.00
List price: $25.00
Author: Bob Coen
Brand: Brand: Counterpoint

Dead Silence—the first in-depth look into the new biological arms race—tells the inside story of the U.S. anthrax attacks and their connection to the existence of a frightening global germ warfare underworld.

Dead Silence follows a journalist and a private eye as they pursue leads that take them across four continents, inside classified labs in the U.S., and to an off-limits Russian military compound. In South Africa they track down “Doctor Death,” the apartheid army scientist who—using the expertise of his U.S. and U.K. intelligence contacts—worked on an array of germ weapons, including one targeting black people, a weapon that may be for sale on the black market today.

Their investigation intensifies to include the mysterious deaths of some of the world’s leading germ war scientists in the wake of 9/11, including that of Bruce Ivins—the man the tabloids called “Doctor Doom” and the FBI controversially insists is the lone perpetrator of the anthrax attacks.

Real Justice

Real Justice Lowest new price: $14.90
Lowest used price: $1.80
List price: $15.00
Author: Ted Wachtel
Brand: Brand: Piper's Press

From Wagga Wagga, Australia, to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, a revolution is taking place in how police, courts, schools and workplaces respond to wrongdoing. Instead of just doling out punishment to offenders, we are changing our criminal justice and disciplinary systems to address the harm done to victims and the community. Based in ancient tribal practices, REAL JUSTICE involves victims, offenders and their families and friends in a face-to-face process called "restorative justice conferencing." In his book, REAL JUSTICE, Ted Wachtel offers a moving and powerful account of the growth and development of restorative justice conferencing in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States through true stories of victims and offenders in real life encounters. In vivid testimony, we see victims confront shoplifters and vandals, bullies and arsonists with their emotions. Offenders usually shed their "tough guy" images and come away with empathy and understanding for those they have harmed -- not only their victims, but their own families as well. Restorative justice conferencing holds offenders accountable and satisfies victims more effectively than our courts and school disciplinary processes. REAL JUSTICE brings us hope for a better future. "During Terry O'Connell's presentation I was seized by an epiphany, a sudden intuitive realization that I had just encountered an essential universal truth. Restorative justice conferencing was so simple that it was elegant, so basic that it was complete. Nothing in my experience with young offenders could match the positive outcomes being described by this Australian police officer. I wanted to bring restorative justice conferencing to North America, where we lead the world in escalating juvenile crime and school misconduct." -- Ted Wachtel, founder of Real Justice and president of the International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP) Graduate School
