Author: Wayne Thurber
Brand: Brand: Maverick Company

John and Martha Herring's assumed success was apparent in their lavish lifestyle - a mansion, a penchant for luxury automobiles, travel, fine dining, and expensive art and jewelry. Not a bad life - if they had earned it, though in the twisted minds of the couple, they had.

The husband-and-wife crime team knew how the Medicare and pension systems worked, and they knew how to work the systems. Through intricate schemes, bogus account statements, fraudulent accounting, and counterfeit investments, the couple bilked millions from Medicare and from their employees' pension plans.

The first installment in the Unjust Enrichment true-crime series by federal investigator Wayne Thurber, Thieves of Highland Road is a picture of what white-collar crime looks like from the inside. The result is an informative read that will appeal to any individual's sense of justice.

Killer on the Loose, The True Story of Serial Killer Raymond Lee Stewart

Killer on the Loose, The True Story of Serial Killer Raymond Lee Stewart Lowest new price: $71.00
Lowest used price: $23.30
List price: $9.95
Author: Greg Kelly
Brand: Brand: Paperboy Pr

In one week, Raymond Lee Stewart went on a killing spree that left four people dead in Rockford, Illinois and two people dead in Beloit, Wisconsin. The murders terrified both communities. He was captured with the help of an F.B.I. profiler.

Just when Rockford and Beloit residents thought it was safe to go out again, Raymond Lee Stewart made a daring escape from jail. Once again, the community was terrified. He was re-captured after a two hour manhunt.

Greg Kelly was 10 years old at the time and living in Rockford. For Kelly, this was the boogeyman of his childhood. Fifteen years after the murders and the daring escape, Kelly was interviewing Raymond Lee Stewart as part of his job as Assignment Editor for WGN news in Chicago.

The book is a look at how the events in this story affected the lives of the people who were involved; the sister of the killer who claims that years of abuse led Stewart to his murderous path, the mother of one of the victims who forgave the killer and fought to get him off death row, the son of a victim who turned into an alcoholic after his father's murder, the police officer who shot and helped capture Stewart during his 1982 escape and an F.B.I. profiler who helped local authorities catch the killer.

Lowest used price: $3.95
List price: $36.95
Author: Peter Jan Honigsberg

Jose Padilla short-shackled and wearing blackened goggles and earmuffs to block out all light and sound on his way to the dentist. Fifteen-year-old Omar Khadr crying out to an American soldier, "Kill me!" Hunger strikers at Guantánamo being restrained and force-fed through tubes up their nostrils. John Walker Lindh lying naked and blindfolded in a metal container, bound by his hands and feet, in the freezing Afghan winter night. This is the story of the Bush administration's response to the attacks of September 11, 2001—and of how we have been led down a path of executive abuses, human tragedies, abandonment of the Constitution, and the erosion of due process and liberty. In this vitally important book, Peter Jan Honigsberg chronicles the black hole of the American judicial system from 2001 to the present, providing an incisive analysis of exactly what we have lost over the past seven years and where we are now headed.

Understanding Peacekeeping

Understanding Peacekeeping Lowest new price: $43.15
Lowest used price: $60.00
List price: $79.95
Author: Alex J. Bellamy
Brand: Brand: Polity

Understanding Peacekeeping provides a comprehensive and up to date introduction to the theory, practice and politics of contemporary peacekeeping. It evaluates the changing characteristics of the contemporary environment in which peacekeepers operate, what role peacekeeping plays in wider processes of global politics, the growing impact of non-state actors, and the major challenges facing peacekeepers in the future.





Drawing on a wide range of historical and contemporary case studies, including: Afghanistan; Cambodia, Cyprus; the Democratic Republic of Congo; East Timor; El Salvador; Haiti, Liberia; Rwanda; Sierra Leone; Somalia; and the former Yugoslavia, this book develops an original conceptual framework to chart the evolution of the role of peacekeeping in global politics, and highlights the unique characteristics of different types of peacekeeping operations. Part 1 examines concepts and issues related to peacekeeping in global politics. Part 2 charts the historical development of peacekeeping from 1945 to the present. In Part 3, separate chapters are devoted to different types of peacekeeping operations: traditional peacekeeping; managing transition; wider peacekeeping; peace enforcement; and peace support operations. Part 4 looks forward and examines developments in global politics that are presenting serious challenges to the concept and practice of peacekeeping, namely, globalization, the privatization of security, preventing violent conflict, and the establishment of protectorates.





Understanding Peacekeeping will be essential reading for students and scholars of peace and conflict studies, security studies, and international relations.

German Idealism and the Concept of Punishment (Modern European Philosophy)

German Idealism and the Concept of Punishment (Modern European Philosophy) Lowest new price: $31.64
Lowest used price: $30.72
List price: $88.00
Author: Jean-Christophe Merle
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Against the background of early modernism - a period that justified punishment by general deterrence - Kant is usually thought to represent a radical turn towards retributivism. For Kant, and later for Fichte and Hegel, a just punishment respects the humanity inherent in the criminal, and serves no external ends - it is instituted only because the criminal deserves it. In this original study, Jean-Christophe Merle uses close analysis of texts to show that these philosophers did not in fact hold a retributivist position, or even a mixed position; instead he traces in their work the gradual emergence of views in favour of deterrence and resocialisation. He also examines Nietzsche's view that morality rests on the rejection of retribution. His final chapter offers a challenge to the retributivist position, and a defence of resocialisation, in the context of current legal theory and practice concerning the punishment of crimes against humanity.
