The Art of War

From the Publisher
Written approximately twenty-five hundred years ago, in a time of political turbulence and great military activity, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has exerted an extraordinary influence on the modern world. People of all persuasions have found inspiration and sound, practical guidance here for any number of activities that require strategy, from sports and normal business affairs to affairs of the heart. They have found the courage to view the world in which they live and work as a network of actual and potential combat zones, where the stakes are high and struggle is the primary mode of being; where no one is to be trusted and survival depends on unconditional victory. This edition, augmented by commentaries and anecdotal material, renders the classic text accessible to the contemporary reader, while maintaining the spare, near-poetic tone of the original.

   
A Warrant to Kill: A True Story of Obsession, Lies and a Killer Cop

She tried to tell her friends. She even went to the police. No one would believe her—and now she was dead.

Problems had always followed Susan White, but when she remarried and moved to Houston's posh suburbs, she thought the past was behind her—until she met a deputy sheriff named Kent McGowen who would soon become her worst nightmare.

McGowen was an aggressive cop with a spotty record. When Susan rebuffed his advances, she claimed he stalked and harassed her, using her troubled teenage son as bait. And then, in an act of arrogance and revenge, he made good on his threats, setting her up for the kill.

In A Warrant to Kill, Kathryn Casey meticulously pieces together the tragic shards of the case to create a riveting story of vengeance, fear, and justice—of the terrifying power a badge can have in the wrong hands.

   
Murder in Brentwood (Mark Fuhrman)

For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop - a brilliant detective - had to he destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson "Dream Team," and it worked. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grows, so does outrage about the scapegoating of Mark Fuhrman. Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in a damning expose. The veteran detective gives the inside story of why and how Simpson's interrogation was bungled; how police criminalists made previously unrevealed errors that torpedoed the prosecution's case; why Marcia Clark foolishly suppressed evidence of an affair between Ron and Nicole; and why Clark refused to call a key police witness who could have corroborated Fuhrman's testimony and blown away the defense team's claim of planted evidence. Fuhrman's own hand-drawn maps of the crime scene and his reconstruction of the murders leave no doubt about what really happened on June 12, 1994. New revelations about the incompetence and corruption that pervaded the "Trial of the Century" will exonerate this decent, loyal detective, the innocent cop who was sacrificed so a rich, guilty celebrity could go free.

   
No Heroes: Inside the FBI's Secret Counter-Terror Force

Synopsis
Danny O. Coulson is the founder of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Hostage Rescue Team, or HRT. In an FBI career that spans three decades, he led the arrest of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, convinced McVeigh's friend Michael Fortier to become the government's star witness, and has helped bring hundreds of murderous extremists and killers to justice - from the Black Liberation Army police assassins to the treacherous white supremacist terrorists of the Order, and the Covenant, Sword and Arm of the Lord. In No Heroes, Coulson opens a long-locked door into the secretive world of the HRT, the civilian equivalent of the U.S. military's elite Delta Force. Coulson takes the reader inside famous cases and provides riveting first person accounts of such high-profile investigations as the Atlanta prison riots - and tense showdowns including the disastrous sieges at Ruby Ridge and Waco. He sheds new light on the deadliest terrorist attack in American history - the Oklahoma City bombing that took 168 lives - with never-before-revealed details of the FBIs massive efforts to locate the conspirators before they struck again. Finally, Coulson exposes the frightening rise of domestic terrorism and its implications for the 21st Century.

   
Copspeak: The Lingo of Law Enforcement and Crime

From the Publisher
From the "git-go" until the case is "cleared," law enforcement officials - and the criminals they pursue - have a language all their own. In CopSpeak, Tom Philbin sets the record straight with a fun, factual, and fascinating compilation that's part dictionary, part encyclopedia, and all entertaining. From "Abe" (five dollars' worth of illegal drugs) to "zombie" (a police officer who works at night), CopSpeak is "phat" (cool). Take a "taste" (sampling):. Shank: A knife or other sharp instrument used by prison inmates. Prisoners are ingenious at making shanks. They have been constructed from everything from a metal bed slat to a toothbrush handle in which a razor is embedded. "At any given time,' said one ex-convict, "there's enough shanks in a prison to open a cutlery factory."

   
Policing Women: The Sexual Politics of Law Enforcement and the LAPD

From The Publisher
Today, we take female police officers and workers for granted. But what is the truth behind the scenes? Author Janis Appier traces the origins of women in police work beginning in 1910, explaining how pioneer policewomen's struggles to gain footholds in big city police departments ironically helped to make modern police work one of the more male dominated occupations in the United States. 12 illustrations. 256 pp.
