The Art of Self Research por Nurit Cederboum (Niv Publishing)

Descripción: "….The subject looking in the mirror is ego. Opposite ego is the self, whose thinking has a different rhythm and order. The initial ‘mirror encounter’ ego observes passively and the encounter offers an opening for ego to use its cognitive understanding, to make decisions and act. Ego observing the image in the mirror illustrates the expression that the ego looks into the depth of the soul. Ego looks at the true self, which resides in the soul, in the head or in the person’s personality. The ‘mirror encounter’ invites the passive, observing ego to become active and look deeply inside…."
This book presents a year's long study, where the researcher-artist engages herself within the activity of self-portrait drawing, facing the products and employing them both as research instruments and theme. The research takes interests in this unique activity, in its significance in an individual’s or an artist’s life, and in psychological, philosophical and artistic implications associated with and deriving therefrom.
The research integrates the artistic activity, which is perceived as a research in itself, combined with a scientific research method, bearing the spirit of a ‘’grounded theory’’. This book introduced the unique research method, which is described as ‘’art-based research", further shedding a new, broad light on the common phenomenon, known as ‘self-portrait drawing’.
Dr. Nurit Cederbaum - a multi-disciplinary artist and researcher, visual artist, poet, researcher, lecturer, curator and writer

He Lost It In The Catskills por Jerry Greenfield (Creative Projects International Inc.)

Descripción: In He Lost it in the Catskills, author Jerry Greenfield takes us back to the final years of the so-called “Borscht Belt” — the area in the mountains just north of New York City that was, for generations, a haven for Jewish summer resort hotels and bungalow colonies.

It was also the region that launched the careers of many famous comedians and singers. As a child, Jerry spent all his summers at the bungalow adjoining Rubel’s Mansion… the hotel once owned by his mother’s family. He came of age as a busboy and waiter in several Borscht Belt hotels over the course of ten years.

This story is based on his experiences, the friends he found, and the innocence he lost coming of age in this legendary (and now bygone) region.

Ford Mustang 2011-2014: How to Build & Modify por Wes Duenkel (CarTech Books)

Descripción: Maximize the potential of your 2011–2014 Mustang with this new book!The Ford Mustang has seen quite an evolution in its 50-plus years of existence. Times change, consumer demands change, and sometimes, you stop and wonder, "How did we get here?" Ford’s designers and its customers were thinking the same thing in the early 2000s. The evolution from the classic original design to the New Edge styling of the 1999–2004 models had some scratching their heads. Ford decided to take a bold turn back to the Mustang’s roots with the fifth-generation model, which made its debut for the 2005 model year and lasted through 2014. Echoing the Mustang fastback design of the 1960s, Ford inspired a path of retro design that the Camaro and Challenger followed shortly thereafter. The move proved incredibly popular with enthusiasts. Of course, with car enthusiasts, the immediate thought was, "How can we make this new Mustang even better?" The big news in 2011 was the introduction of the new 5.0-liter Coyote engine, which was a huge upgrade over the previous 4.6-liter engine. In Ford Mustang 2011–2014: How to Build and Modify, Mustang expert Wes Duenkel takes you through the entire car, system by system, to explore ways to get more performance out the last of the fifth-generation Mustangs. Included are chapters on engine modifications, brake and exhaust upgrades, power adders, chassis and suspension upgrades, cooling system modifications, and EFI and tuning tips. Wheels and tires, differentials, electronic upgrades, and more are also covered.The 2011–2014 Mustangs are finding their way into the affordable category at present with warranties expiring and acquisition costs being very reasonable. Of course, as with all generations of Mustang, there is a robust aftermarket to explore for performance parts and accessories. Ford Mustang 2011–2014: How to Build and Modify covers it all and will help you make your Mustang everything you want it to be.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms: Stories and Essays por Tim McLoughlin (Akashic Books)

Descripción: An enthralling collection of short fiction and nonfiction that draw upon McLoughlin’s three-decade career in the criminal justice system.

In Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, Tim McLoughlin draws upon his three-decade career in the criminal justice system with his characteristic wit and his fascination with misfits and malfeasance. A lifetime immersed in New York City feeds short stories that evoke a landscape of characters rife with personal arrogance and misjudgment; and nonfiction essays about toeing the line when the line keeps disappearing.

An opioid-addicted catsitter electronically eavesdrops on his neighbors only to hear devastating truths. A degenerate gambler stakes his life on a long shot because he sees three lucky numbers on the license plate of a passing car.

In the nonfiction essays, we learn that the system plays a role in supporting vice, as long as it gets a cut. Altar boys compete to work weddings and funerals for tips in the shadow of predatory priests. Cops become robbers, and a mob boss just might be a civil rights icon. McLoughlin shines a light on worlds that few have access to.

A recurring theme in his urban, often New York–centric work is chronic displacement, people standing still in a city that is always changing. These are McLoughlin’s ghosts, these casualties of progress, and he holds them dear and celebrates them.

Police Brutality and White Supremacy: The Fight Against American Traditions por Etan Thomas (Akashic Books)

Descripción: An NBA veteran offers engaging interviews and reflections that explore police brutality, white supremacy, and the struggle for racial justice in America.

ETAN THOMAS, an eleven-year NBA veteran and lifelong advocate for social justice, weaves together his personal experiences with police violence and white supremacy with multiple interviews of family members of victims of police brutality like exonerated Central Park Five survivor Raymond Santana and Rodney King’s daughter Lora Dene King; as well as activist athletes and other public figures such as Steph Curry, Chuck D, Isiah Thomas, Sue Bird, Jake Tapper, Jemele Hill, Stan Van Gundy, Kyle Korver, Mark Cuban, Rick Strom, and many more.

Thomas speaks with retired police officers about their efforts to change policing, and white allies about their experiences with privilege and their ability to influence other white people. Thomas also examines the history of racism, white supremacy, and the prevalence of both in the current moment. He looks at the origins of white supremacy in the US, dating back to the country’s inception, and explores how it was interwoven into Christianity—interviewing leading voices both in and outside of the church. Finally, with prominent voices in the media and education, Thomas discusses the continued cultivation of these injustices in American society.

Police Brutality and White Supremacy demands accountability and justice for those responsible for and impacted by police violence and terror. It offers practical solutions to work against the promotion of white supremacy in law enforcement, Christianity, early education, and across the public sphere.

Featuring original interviews with: Steph Curry, Chuck D, Yamiche Alcindor, Isiah Thomas, Jemele Hill, Craig Hodges, Stan Van Gundy, Mark Cuban, Jake Tapper, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Sue Bird, Kyle Korver, Rick Strom, Cenk Uygur, Tim Wise, Chris Broussard, Breanna Stewart, Rex Chapman, Stephen Jackson, Kori Mccoy, Lora Dene King, Chikesia Clemons, Raymond Santana, Alissa Findley, Amber and Ashley Carr, Michelle And Ashley Monterrosa, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr., Abiodun Oyewole, Marc Lamont Hill, Officer Carlton Berkley, Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr., Officer Joe Ested, Captain Sonia Pruitt, and Bishop Talbert Swan.

City of Incurable Women por Maud Casey (Bellevue Literary Press)

Descripción: In a fusion of fact and fiction, nineteenth-century women institutionalized as hysterics reveal what history ignored

“Where are the hysterics, those magnificent women of former times?” wrote Jacques Lacan. Long history’s ghosts, marginalized and dispossessed due to their gender and class, they are reimagined by Maud Casey as complex, flesh-and-blood people with stories to tell. These linked, evocative prose portraits, accompanied by period photographs and medical documents both authentic and invented, poignantly restore the humanity to the nineteenth-century female psychiatric patients confined in Paris’s Salpêtrière hospital and reduced to specimens for study by the celebrated neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot and his male colleagues.

City of Incurable Women is a brilliant exploration of the type of female bodily and psychic pain once commonly diagnosed as hysteria—and the curiously hysterical response to it commonly exhibited by medical men. It is a novel of powerful originality, riveting historical interest, and haunting lyrical beauty.” —Sigrid Nunez, author of The Friend and What Are You Going Through

“Enlightening. . . . [City of Incurable Women] defies convention and revels in searing, gorgeous language.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Mars Adrift (The Halo Trilogy, #3) por Kathleen McFall (Pumpjack Press)

Descripción: An interplanetary mystery and a searing critique of the contemporary billionaire quest for Mars.
The year is (still) 2188 and Crucial Larsen is officially done with Mars. But just as he’s set to head back to his beloved Earth, meteors crash into the orbital platforms, ravage the luxury domes and knock Halo—the powerful AI running Mars and Earth—offline. And this is no random cosmic event. An invading force has the technology to redirect space rocks at will and intends to level the Five Families. Their first act? Put a bounty on missing Staff Scientist Melinda Hopwire, Crucial’s ex-lover—the only person left alive who can find the back-up servers to introduce the AI empathy hack, the endgame of the beleaguered Resistance. Crucial has to claw his way across the deadly Choke armed with nothing more than a glue gun, expired maple rum and Sanders, a malfunctioning cybanism, to find Mel and her synthetic perma-kitten Wisp. If he fails, it’s the end for both planets. Blending science-fiction with a classic hard-boiled detective story, 

Mars Adrift is the final book in The Halo Trilogy, an interplanetary mystery and a searing critique of the contemporary billionaire quest for Mars. This is the tenth book by Clark Hays and Kathleen McFall.

No Stopping Us Now: A Novel por Lucy Jane Bledsoe (Three Rooms Press)

Descripción: It’s 1974. Title IX has passed two years ago, but Louisa’s high school still refuses to fund an all girls’ basketball team. After hearing Gloria Steinem speak, Louisa learns an important lesson: “The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.” Now what can she do but stand up and fight back?
When Louisa asks her principal to start a girls team, she’s soon viciously targeted by male coaches at her school, lied to by the school board, and dismissed as “out of line” as she fights for a fair chance to be an athlete. No Stopping Us Now is a story about finding one’s own voice through the joys of sports, love, and the power of sisterhood. Based on the author's true story, it is a compelling examination of the courage it takes to stand up for what’s right.
Young adult, LGBTQ historical fiction perfect for the 50th anniversary of Title IX in June 2022.

Japanthem: Counter-Cultural Experiences, Cross-Cultural Remixes por Jillian Marshall (Three Rooms Press)

Descripción: Both personally revealing and informed by years of Fulbright MTVu-sponsored research, JAPANTHEM’s honest vignettes delve beyond the aspects of Japanese culture that have captivated the western world to portray a society’s deep relationship with music, and what it means to listen and understand as a cultural outsider. Following a decade of back-and-forth across the Pacific while researching her doctoral thesis in ethnomusicology, JAPANTHEM author Jillian Marshall reveals contemporary Japan through a prism of magic, serendipity, frustration, unique underground culture, learning life lessons the hard way, and an insatiable curiosity for the human spirit. The book’s twenty vignettes — including what it’s like to be subtly bullied by your Buddhist dance teacher, go to a secret rave in woods near Mt. Fuji, meet a pop star at a basement club while tipsy, and experience a nuclear disaster unfold by the minute — are based off first-hand experience, and illustrate music’s fascinating relationship to (Japanese) society with honesty, intelligence, and humor. JAPANTHEM offers a uniquely nuanced portrayal of life in the Land of the Rising Sun — while encouraging us to listen more deeply in (and to) Japan in the process.

Yippie Girl: Exploits in Protest and Defeating the FBI por Judy Gumbo (Three Rooms Press)

Descripción: “Of the individuals connected with the anti-war movement . . . the subject JUDY GUMBO is considered to be the most vicious, the most anti-American, the most anti-establishment, and the most dangerous to the internal security of the United States.” —from FBI Surveillance Files on Judy Gumbo.
Lifelong activist Judy Gumbo, an original member of The Yippies, a 1960s anti-war satirical protest group, offers an insider feminist memoir of her involvement with the Yippies, Black Panthers, Chicago 7 Conspiracy Trial defendants, and her work in protest, women's rights, environmental actions, and a life of activism.
In 1968, a 24-year-old woman moved to Berkeley, California and immediately became enmeshed in the Youth International Party, aka The Yippies, an anti-war satirical protest group. In the next few years, Judy Gumbo (a nickname given her by Eldridge Cleaver), was soon at the center of counter-cultural activity—from protests in People’s Park, to meetings at Black Panther headquarters, to running a pig for President at the raucous Democratic National Convention in Chicago, a protest that devolved into violent attacks by the police and arrests that led to the notorious conspiracy trial of the Chicago Conspiracy Trial.
In Yippie Girl, an insider feminist memoir, Gumbo reveals intimate details of—and struggles with—her fellow radicals Jerry Rubin, Anita & Abbie Hoffman, Eldridge Cleaver, Paul Krassner, Stew Albert, and more, detailing their experiences in radical protests and her own skirmishes with unwarranted FBI surveillance. This deep dive into her activism includes details of her organization of a national women's rights group, her visit to North Vietnam during the war, her travels around the globe to promote women's liberation and anti-war protest, and her environmental activism, including launching the first-ever Earth Day celebration. It also includes extensive excerpts from illegal wiretaps and surveillance by the FBI.
Yippie Girl explores Gumbo’s life as a protester to show that, while circumstances always change, protesters can stay loyal to the causes they believe in and remain true to themselves. She also reveals how dogmatism, authoritarianism, and interpersonal conflict can damage those same just causes, offering a timeless and strategic guide for activists today protesting against injustice in all its forms.

Ash and Gold por Lydia R. Outland (Black Rose Writing)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: Briar "Buggy" Pierce is going insane. At least, that's what she thinks.

Ripped from her normal life in sleepy Marshall County, California, Buggy fights for control over her mind as a darkness awakens within her heart and splinters her reality. Nightmares fill her dreams with fear and pain. Dreams of evil deaths. Drowning in darkness. Burning alive. But those are the least of her terrors.

An intense power is building inside Buggy, a power she does not understand or know how to control. Just when things cannot get any worse, two mysterious strangers bulldoze into her life, scattering her already weak hold on everything she believes to be true. They show her a world full of psychic cults and dark promises.

They say they want to help her, but can she trust them? And even if they can help her, is there enough time?

Or is it already too late?

Behind the Fourth Wall por Michael Solomowitz (Black Rose Writing)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: New York playwright Noah Miller had it all–a supportive wife, a precocious daughter, a promising career. Than, suddenly, all is lost.

Still mourning his family, Noah reluctantly agrees to oversee the summer production of his play on Cape Cod. There he befriends a woman who sympathizes with his grief. But her true objectives run deeper–into his very soul–and Noah becomes an unwitting victim of her deception.

Immersed in his production, he begins an affair with one of his actors but the guilt from their relationship leads to tragic consequences. Then, on the anniversary of his wife's passing, Noah discovers the harrowing mystery behind her unexpected death and the part he played in it.

Harboring this devastating secret, his show about to open without one of its lead actors, and a dubious figure harassing him, Behind the Fourth Wall is a story of hope and redemption, forgiveness and second chances, and ultimately, the courage to face one's darkest fears.

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: Two hundred years of differing opinions can strain even the seemingly eternal love of the youkai.

Hiro finds comfort in his friendship with Takanori, a vociferous human man he met at a ramen shop and can't seem to keep away from, and when Hide's apathy finally pushes them to the breaking point, it's here he runs. Everything Hiro had to fight for from Hideyoshi, Takanori gives freely, making it all too easy to turn away from his responsibilities—and Hideyoshi—in favor of something sweeter.

But while Hiro is off playing human, danger is brewing among the Youkai. Hideyoshi, still reeling from his breakup with Hiro, struggles to uphold the promise they made to the Hunter leader, Kyo. The Youkai's loyalty has been challenged by Hiro's abrupt disappearance. With Hunters literally banging at the door, Hide must find a way to bring Hiro home or risk igniting the war they've spent the last two hundred years trying to prevent.

Confessions of a Marrano Rocketeer por Daniel Schenker (Black Rose Writing)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: As a young man growing up in early twentieth-century Germany, Arthur Waldmann is introduced to the mysteries of the Jewish Kabbalah by his eccentric grandmother, and dreams of traveling to a Heavenly Academy of ancient sages in a distant galaxy.

When he discovers that he cannot achieve this goal by spiritual means, he decides he will reach for the stars through the emerging technology of rocket propulsion. Waldmann comes to believe that he is the chosen one to lead mankind's conquest of space, but soon discovers he must confront brilliant rivals with equal claim to the title, one of whom is the scion of a renown aristocratic family.

Despite misgivings about the rise of Nazism, he becomes a key figure in the successful development of the V2 rocket. This new weapon arrives too late to change the outcome of the war, however, and as German defeat approaches, Waldmann commits himself to a desperate project that would rewrite the history of spaceflight had not its unforeseen consequences brought about its erasure from the historical record.

For the Murder (The Murder, #1) por Gabrielle Ash (City Owl Press)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: A lone crow is a dead crow.

That’s what Diana Van Doren, exiled crow shifter, has always believed. The last murder of crow shifters known to exist wouldn’t accept her into the flock, leaving her vulnerable. Worse, her kleptomaniacal father’s schemes put them in a demon’s crosshairs. Without the support of the murder, Diana fears death will come all too quickly. So when an opportunity to steal a rare blade that can kill anything—even demons—crosses their path, she decides to play her father’s games one last
time.

However, she isn’t the only one hoping to take the blade. Sasha Sokolov, a clairvoyant, has been forced from childhood to serve the very demon hunting Diana and her family. After two decades of service, his boss finally offers him what he can’t refuse: freedom. All he has to do is bring in the knife and the Van Dorens, and his bloodline will be free from serving the demon forever.

When Diana and Sasha meet at the auction, they strike an uneasy alliance. Diana sees a way to finally be welcomed into the murder. Sasha sees an opportunity to get his freedom. To get what they want, only one of them can walk away with the blade. But when their magic inexplicably links as they reluctantly work together to steal the knife, betraying each other for their own ends may no longer be an option.

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: Jane “Red” Rogers is the daughter of two geologists, so her childhood has been overshadowed by all things having to do with the rock cycle, plate tectonics, and glaciation.

Along the way, Red must navigate around the submerged hazards resulting from the friendship with a local boy and an Anishinaabe man and his grandson—all the while trying to fit in with the rich teen aged crowd at the local hotel.

With each misadventure Red encounters, her mother's journal continues to teach her how the lessons of geology and glaciation are as applicable to human beings as they are to her beloved rocks and ice.

Love, Dance & Egg Rolls por Jason Tanamor (Ooligan Press)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: Jamie Santiago is just an ordinary high school teenager—he has a huge crush on a girl from school, he watches a ton of sitcoms, and he is constantly trying to keep his dad from feeding egg rolls to his white friends. Not to mention he also aspires to be the next Tinikling folk dance master. Okay, maybe he’s not so ordinary.

It's hard enough balancing the demands of high school, but when the last ever Asian Folk Festival falls on the same day as Homecoming, it feels like Jamie's world comes crashing down. He is forced to make an important decision between honoring his heritage and salvaging what's left of his social life. With a racist bully at school and rising protests in Portland, Jamie sometimes wonders if it would be easier to forget his Filipino side entirely instead of trying to embrace it.

[Play the catchy sitcom music]
[Cue the laugh track to numb the serious stuff]

If only life were so perfect.

Tensions will rise in Love, Dance & Egg Rolls as Jamie decides whether it's more important to remain hidden in plain sight or step directly into the spotlight. Jamie will not only come face-to-face with a bully, but also with this thing called cultural identity.

Of Sacrifice and Surrender: America's First Abolitionists por Craig Stofko (Black Rose Writing)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: When Coleman Holyday fought in the first real battle of the Revolution, he risked his life not only for the independence of a nation but for the freedom of his people. Now, many years later, he watches as America betrays the promise of the Founders.

In the company of Steven Brixton, a young Tory boy from a secluded Chesapeake fishing village, they watch as the British are again defeated in the second war of independence. During the celebration the two witness people dancing triumphantly in the streets of Baltimore while others remain shackled and endure the sting of the whip.

The mockery of America's true meaning helps them sieze their opportunity to make a difference in Black America's ongoing struggle for freedom. They will help the tortured slaves of a cruel plantation owner escape through the treacherous wilderness of Dorchester County. But there is a price to pay for seeking justice.

The harrowing walk to the gallows is tempered with the realization that songs and laughter of children not yet born will one day echo across a land free from the stench of slavery, and their sacrifice will be rewarded with one final moment of glory.

Determined to find a way home, Tink doesn’t hesitate to follow the one lead she has, even if that means seducing a filthy pirate to steal precious gems out from under his…hook.
Captain Hook believes he’s found a real treasure in Tink. That is, until he recovers from her pixie dust laced kiss with a curse that turns the seas against him. With his ship and reputation at the mercy of raging storms, he tracks down the little minx and demands she remove the curse. Too bad she can’t.
However, the mermaid queen has a solution to both of their problems, if Tink and Hook will work together to retrieve a magical item for her.
As they venture to the mysterious Shrouded Isles to find the priceless treasure, their shared nemesis closes in. However, his wrath is nothing compared to the realization that achieving their goal may mean losing something they never expected to find—each other.

Descripción: Simone Warner is a mom, a perfectionist, and former CEO. She’s spent her life living up to the expectations of others—which is why she decides to have a one-night stand with a gorgeous tennis player eight years her junior. One wild night of reckless abandon, right?

Not exactly.

After she quits her job as CEO of Warner Hotels, Simone agrees to help notorious tennis player Julian Smoke coach a new top-secret player. Tennis has always been her passion, and Simone eagerly takes the plunge. What she doesn’t expect is for her steamy one-night stand to waltz through the doors with a smirk on his face and a racket in hand.

Alex Wilde can’t seem to get a handle on his game. Obsessed with besting his vile tennis star step-brother, he turns to Julian Smoke and his training center for help. That’s when he sees her—the only woman who has ever left his bed without a goodbye. Simone Warner is his new assistant coach…and his only hope at getting back into the game.

The problem? Alex can’t stop thinking about the woman who holds his future in her hands. And now, he has to play a very different kind of game, one where he has to win the girl.

Everyone knows to never underestimate a wild card—on or off the court.

The Art of Self-Research por Nurit Cederboum (Niv Publishing)

Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

Descripción: "….The subject looking in the mirror is ego. Opposite ego is the self, whose thinking has a different rhythm and order. The initial ‘mirror encounter’ ego observes passively and the encounter offers an opening for ego to use its cognitive understanding, to make decisions and act. Ego observing the image in the mirror illustrates the expression that the ego looks into the depth of the soul. Ego looks at the true self, which resides in the soul, in the head or in the person’s personality. The ‘mirror encounter’ invites the passive, observing ego to become active and look deeply inside…."
This book presents a year's long study, where the researcher-artist engages herself within the activity of self-portrait drawing, facing the products and employing them both as research instruments and theme. The research takes interests in this unique activity, in its significance in an individual’s or an artist’s life, and in psychological, philosophical and artistic implications associated with and deriving therefrom.
The research integrates the artistic activity, which is perceived as a research in itself, combined with a scientific research method, bearing the spirit of a ‘’grounded theory’’. This book introduced the unique research method, which is described as ‘’art-based research", further shedding a new, broad light on the common phenomenon, known as ‘self-portrait drawing’.

Buried alive in Manbij, Syria, like so many before me and so many more to come. "Why now? Please?" There is a deep sadness in realizing I had wasted my whole life not getting to know me before there was no me. Too late! A deep and penetrating sadness of all I wasted when I though I had all the time in the world and I did not. So, like an idiot, I danced right up to the edge of the end without ever even knowing it."

"This is the place where the disappeared aren't missing."

    To Talk of Many Things: Selected Poems por Richard Greene (Jumble Books and Publishers)

    Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

    Descripción: Richard Greene has been writing poetry intensively since he retired from a 38-year career in international development in the mid-1990s. A lawyer by training, he fell into his development career by accident when, after law school, though planning not to practice law but interested in international affairs, he accepted an unsolicited job offer from the U.S. Agency for International Development. After a few years in Washington (or Foggy Bottom, as the location of the U.S. foreign policy establishment is known), he was assigned as legal advisor to the USAID mission in Laos and there discovered that the development business suited his interests and inclinations very well.

    Greene wrote poetry beginning in the 8th grade and continued through college where he studied with a Professor, Henry Rago, who later became editor of Poetry magazine, the leading U.S. poetry journal. However, he wrote few poems after law school as he became absorbed in international development, but turned back to poetry as he neared retirement.

    Operation George: A Gripping True Crime Story of an Audacious Undercover Sting por Mark Dickens (HENDRY PUBLISHING LTD)

    Este libro es un eBook, no un libro físico.

    Descripción: Meet the real Line of Duty ™ undercover team in this previously untold and gripping story of how a Northern Irish terrorist and murderer and one of his followers, were caught in an audacious and brilliantly executed undercover sting on the English mainland, codenamed, Operation George.
    In 2006 at Belfast Crown Court, William James Fulton, a principal in the outlawed Loyalist Volunteer Force, was jailed for life and sentenced to a minimum of 28 years after the longest trial in Northern Ireland’s legal history.

    Fulton was an early suspect in the Rosemary Nelson killing. Following the murder of the prominent human rights lawyer, he fled to the United States and, with help from the FBI in collusion with the British police, he was deported. On his arrival at Heathrow, Fulton ‘walked through an open door,’ a Lewis Carrol-like euphemism for an invitation created by the covert team, only to disappear ‘down the rabbit hole’ on accepting the invitation.

    That ‘rabbit hole’ led to an alternative world: an environment created and controlled by the elite covert team and only inhabited by the undercover officers and their targets. The subterfuge encouraged the terrorist targets into believing Fulton was working for a Plymouth-based ‘criminal firm’ over a period spanning almost two years. In that time, over fifty thousand hours of conversations between the ‘firm’ members were secretly recorded and used to bring the killer to justice.

    This unique story is told by former undercover officer Mark Dickens who was part of an elite team of undercover detectives who took part in ‘Operation George,’ one of the most remarkable covert policing operations the world has ever known. You won’t know him under that name nor the many aliases he adopted as an undercover police officer infiltrating organised crime gangs.

    Together in ‘Operation George,’ with pioneering Operation Julie undercover officer and bestselling author, Stephen Bentley, they have written a gripping account of a unique story reminiscent of the premise of ‘The Sting’ film, and the ‘Bloodlands’ setting, combining a true-crime page-turner with a fascinating insight into early 21st-century covert policing.
