Feminist ideology has seeped into every aspect of our society. This book is a sobering true story of tragedy, suicide, and murder directly caused by feminism. It not only chronicles true stories that show feminism's discrimination against men, it's backed by peer-reviewed research. Additionally, it includes investigative journalism that proves feminism was never about equality. The reality is that feminism doesn't just victimize men. It also victimizes women, children, families, and communities.

Hat unser Sicherheitsapparat die lückenlose Aufklärung der NSU-Mordserie verhindert? Trägt auch der Verfassungsschutz Verantwortung für die Verbrechen der Neonazis? Und haben Polizeibehörden jahrelang in eine falsche Richtung ermittelt, weil ihr Denken zum Teil rassistisch durchsetzt ist? <br /><br />Diese und andere Fragen thematisiert Mehmet Daimagüler, Opferanwalt der Nebenklage, in seinem Plädoyer zum NSU-Prozess. Sein Fazit: Unser Staat hat versagt. Mit seinem Buch appelliert Daimagüler an uns alle, unsere Demokratie nicht für selbstverständlich zu nehmen, sondern sie gegen Hass und Extremismus zu verteidigen.

<h3>"Scarsella spices [his tale] with saucy language when needed and street lingo where appropriate. He keeps the suspense at high level until the answers unfold." - The Buffalo News (May 31, 2015)</h3><p></p><p> <b>Lawyers Gone Bad</b> is the story of beleaguered attorney disciplinary counsel, Dean Alessi, and his trusty investigator, Stu Foley, in their fight against lawyers gone bad – that is, lawyers who commit ethical and criminal wrongs. In this case they’re investigating the local District Attorney, who may have committed the ultimate ethical wrong - murder.</p><p>Novelist Vincent Scarsella draws on his over 18 years of real life experience as head of the Eighth Judicial District Grievance Committee in Buffalo, New York to craft a gripping, suspenseful novel about lawyers gone bad.</p><p>But the story is more than a crime novel. It concerns friendship, loss, unrequited love, and ultimately, justice. It seeks to answer the question, does what goes around, come around? "Lawyers Gone Bad,” follows on the success of Vincent Scarsella’s debut crime novel, “The Anonymous Man”, about which The Buffalo News said: "’The Anonymous Man’ gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy...it's a fast read that runs through familiar local settings to a satisfying conclusion. Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller...he and [Jack] Fox could go places."</p><p></p><br /><h4>★★★★★ I am really enjoying reading this book so far. - Krystal H.

During the onslaught of legal actions during the Savings and Loans crisis of the 1980s, John Smith came to realize the extent of his employer’s wrongdoing, and that he too had been one of many deceived. He discovered that you don’t have to commit a crime to be convicted of one, and after years of turmoil, he discovered the relief when the FBI finally informed him fifteen years after his sentencing that he should never have been prosecuted in the first place. <br /><br />If it can happen to me, it can happen to you. This story is your warning, your red flare. But also, I have learned a deeper lesson: there is much more to this world than we can see or feel or even comprehend. The Abyss is not something you recognize right away. It's a part of you that you don't come in touch with very often. It's the place where you engage in the ultimate struggle for truth, where you ache for a lasting answer. When you touch the Abyss you gather the breath from deep within you, grasp it, embrace it, and hold on for dear life.

An unforgettable journey through the daily lives of the brave men and women who have made saving lives their profession.<br />Dennis Smith, author of <i>Report from Engine Co. 82</i>, traveled across the country talking to dozens of America’s firefighters to put together this powerful collection of their own descriptions of their most dramatic and intense experiences on the job. Their stories, compiled here, are timeless testimonies to the human capacity for heroism and nobility.<br />Focusing on the most courageous firefighters, from those who have been decorated for heroism to those who have been seriously injured, <i>Firefighters</i> presents the extraordinarily rich and rugged voices of men and women who fight urban building fires, who battle sweeping forest fires, who perform emergency rescues, and who face extreme danger and risk as part of their everyday lives. Sometimes brave, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet or filled with anger, these voices combine to make <i>Firefighters</i> both a riveting adventure drama and a moving chronicle of American heroism at its finest.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

<p><b>"A groundbreaking book . . . revealing the systemic, everyday problems in our courts that must be addressed if justice is truly to be served."—Doris Kearns Goodwin</b></p><p>Attorney and journalist Amy Bach spent eight years investigating the widespread courtroom failures that each day upend lives across America. What she found was an assembly-line approach to justice: a system that rewards mediocre advocacy, bypasses due process, and shortchanges both defendants and victims to keep the court calendar moving. </p><p>Here is the public defender who pleads most of his clients guilty with scant knowledge about their circumstances; the judge who sets outrageous bail for negligible crimes; the prosecutor who habitually declines to pursue significant cases; the court that works together to achieve a wrongful conviction. Going beyond the usual explanations of bad apples and meager funding, <i>Ordinary Injustice</i> reveals a clubby legal culture of compromise, and shows the tragic consequences that result when communities mistake the rules that lawyers play by for the rule of law. It is time, Bach argues, to institute a new method of checks and balances that will make injustice visible—the first and necessary step to reform.</p>

<b>They Had No Fear Of The Cops Because They <em>Were</em> The Cops</b><br /><br />NYPD officers Mike Dowd and Kenny Eurell knew there were two ways to get rich quick in Brooklyn's Lower East Side. You either became drug dealers, or you robbed drug dealers. They decided to do both. <br /><br /><em>“I promised my wife that we would make a lot of money, and that she had nothing to worry about. I LIED!”</em><br /><br />Dowd and Eurell ran the most powerful gang in New York’s dangerous 75th Precinct, the crack cocaine capitol of 1980s America. These “ Cocaine Cops” formed a lucrative alliance with Adam Diaz, the kingpin of an ever-expanding Dominican drug cartel. Soon Mike and Ken were buying fancy cars no cop could afford, and treating their wives to levels of luxury not associated with a patrol officer's salary. They Were Daring, Dangerous and Untouchable Until ...Then “ the biggest police scandal in New York history” exploded into the headlines with the arrest of Mike, Ken, and their fellow crooked cops. Released on bail, Mike offered Ken a long shot at escape to Central America—a bizarre plan involving robbery, kidnapping, and murder—forcing Ken to choose between two forms of betrayal. <br /><br /><em>“When you lie, you steal the truth. Once you have stolen the truth, you can justify stealing anything from anybody.”</em><br /><br />Adapted from Ken Eurell's shocking personal memoir, plus hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with the major players, including former international drug lord, Adam Diaz, and Dori Eurell, revealing the truth behind what you won't see in the hit documentary THE SEVEN FIVE. Edgar Award winner Burl Barer once again teams with award-winning journalist Frank C. Girardot, Jr, and Eurell to bring you an astonishing story of greed and betrayal.

<b>An Official Junior Library Guild Selection, Adult Crossover Nonfiction</b><br /><br /><br /><br />"A shocking tale of wrongful conviction . . . that brings general conditions into cruelly sharp focus." —<i>Kirkus Reviews</i></b><br /><br /><br /><br /><i>Justice Failed</i> is the story of Alton Logan, an African American man who served twenty-six years in prison for a murder he did not commit. In 1983, Logan was falsely convicted of fatally shooting an off-duty Cook County corrections officer, Lloyd M. Wickliffe, at a Chicago-area McDonald’s, and sentenced to life in prison. While serving time for unrelated charges, Andrew Wilson—the true murderer—admitted his guilt to his own lawyers, Dale Coventry and Jamie Kunz. However, bound by the legal code of ethics known as the absolutism of client-attorney privilege, Coventry and Kunz could not take action. Instead, they signed an affidavit proclaiming Logan’s innocence and locked the document in a hidden strong box. It wasn’t until after Wilson’s death in 2007 that his lawyers were able to come forward with the evidence that would eventually set Alton Logan free after twenty-six years in prison.<br /><br /><br /><br />Written in collaboration with veteran journalist Berl Falbaum, <i>Justice Failed</i> explores the sharp divide that exists between commonsense morality—an innocent man should be free—and the rigid ethics of the law that superseded that morality. Throughout the book, in-depth interviews and legal analyses<br />give way to Alton Logan himself as he tells his own story, from his childhood in Chicago to the devastating impact that the loss of a quarter century has had on his life—he entered prison at twenty-eight years of age, and was released at fifty-five.
