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.

Warriors: On Living with Courage, Discipline, And Honor Lowest new price: $62.19
Lowest used price: $4.05
List price: $25.00
Brand: Brand: Paladin Press

In recent years "warrior" has become a buzzword. Most often it's used properly, though sometimes its use is a stretch of the definition. To seek out the true meaning of warrior and warriorhood, Loren W. Christensen - retired cop, war veteran, high-ranking martial artist and prolific author - went to the source, to those who live it. The writers who contributed to this work are some of the finest warrior authors, warrior trainers and warrior scholars today. They have been there and done that. Many have fought on the edge of death's yawning orifice, survived, and now teach others to do the same. Some are still in the trenches. Thirty-seven experts tell what it's like to kill, to sacrifice, to train, to fear, and do what needs to be done. Because that is what a warrior does.

Has A Child Been Molested?

Has A Child Been Molested? Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $63.15
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.

African Americans make up about half of the U.S. prison population, and almost a third of African-American men in the twenties are either incarcerated or under probation/parole supervision.

Chapter topics include: -- the harmful effects of racial profiling; -- the racist application of capital punishment; -- do African-American police make a difference? -- racial characteristics of offenders and victims in television programs; -- corollaries and consequences of "driving while black" policies; -- private prisons and minority incarceration; -- underrepresentation of African-American victims in hate crime research; -- racial bias in the trials of juveniles as adults; -- the myth of black juror nullification; -- affirmative jury selection for racial fairness; -- racial stratification in the academic discipline of criminal justice; and, -- an oppression theory critique of restorative justice.
