  • Children of Catastropheby Jamal Kanj

    Garnet Publishing (UK) Ltd 2010; US$ 12.99

    A great deal has been written over the years addressing the Palestine-Israel conflict, and the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem. However, few works on the subject really present the personal aspect: What is it like to be a refugee? What propels a decent human being to take up arms, to become a freedom fighter or a terrorist? This book tells... more...

  • Mafia and Organized Crimeby James O. Finckenauer

    Oneworld Publications 2012; US$ 7.99

    Ruthless, cruel, and irresistibly cool: the Mafia has always appealed to the darker side of the imagination. But just what is the Mafia, how does it operate, and what can be done to combat it? James Finckenauer debunks the romantic notions and mystique surrounding the Mafia to reveal the harsh realities of global organized crime in countries spanning... more...

  • Refugee Women, Representation and Educationby Melinda McPherson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Even with increased attention to refugee women’s issues in the late 20th century, post-colonial discourses have nurtured limiting representations of refugee women, predominantly as subjects of charity and as victims. Adding to a growing body of work in the field, the author challenges this preconception by offering an opportunity for women’s voices... more...

  • The Triangleby Kevin Deutsch

    Lyons Press 2014; US$ 15.99

    The Linden Triangle: Linden Avenue and Linden Place, Hempstead, Long Island. At this blighted intersection, seemingly forgotten by the middle and upper class communities that surround it, the dream of suburban comfort and safety has devolved into a nightmare of flying bullets and bloodshed. Here, a war between the Bloods and Crips has torn a once-peaceful... more...

  • The Milwaukee Mafiaby Gavin Schmitt

    Barricade Books 2015; US$ 9.99

    Milwaukee's Sicilian underworld is something few people speak about in polite company, and even fewer people speak about with any authority. Everyone in Milwaukee has a friend of a friend who knows something, but they only have one piece of a giant puzzle. The secret society known as the Milwaukee Mafia has done an excellent job of keeping its murders,... more...

  • Crime Incorporatedby William Balsamo; George Carpozi

    New Horizon Press 2015; US$ 15.99

    Based on previously unavailable information and nearly two decades of research, Crime Incorporated reveals for the first time all the unsavoury facts of the Mob's bloody evolution from a gang of uncouth, bumbling killers into the highly organized, smoothly running 'corporation' it is today. William Balsamo, great-nephew of the first godfather,... more...

  • SAFEby Martha Baer; Katrina Heron; Oliver Morton; Evan Ratliff

    HarperCollins 2009; US$ 17.99

    If our society is the most technologically sophisticated on Earth, then why can't we protect ourselves from terrorists and other threats to our safety and security? This is the question that frustrates—and scares—all of us today, and the answers have proved maddeningly elusive. Until now. Through dramatic, enlightening, and often entertaining narratives,... more...

  • Dealing with Terrorism: Stick or Carrot?by B. S. Frey

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00

    Coercion or negative sanctions to deter terrorism have little effect and in some important instances are even counterproductive, claims Frey (economics, U. of Zurich), and it is time to consider alternatives to the anti-terrorist policy undertaken by major powers throughout the world. more...

  • The Youth Gang Problemby Irving A. Spergel

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 45.00

    Every day there are new stories of gang-related crime: from the proliferation of illegal weapons in the streets and children dealing drugs in their schools, to innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire of never-ending gang wars. Once considered an urban phenomenon, gang violence is mermeating American life, spreading to the suburbs and bringing the... more...
