Into the rising sun in their own words, World War II's Pacific veterans reveal the heart of combat by Patrick K O'Donnell( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patrick O'Donnell uncovers the hidden history of World War II by tracking down and interviewing its most elite troops: the Rangers, Airborne, Marines, and First Special Service Force, forerunners to America's Special Forces. These veterans were often the first in and the last out of every conflict, from Guadalcanal and Burma to the Philippines and the black sands of Iwo Jima. They faced a cruel enemy willing to try anything, including kamikaze flights and human-guided torpedoes. Over the course of the war, they had spearheaded D-Day-sized beach assaults, encountered cannibalism, suffered friendly-fire incidents, and endured torture as prisoners of war. By at last telling their stories, these men present an unvarnished look at the war on the ground, a final gift from aging warriors who have already given so much

From the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Jr. and Martin Luther King, Jr., to the FBI crusades against organized crime and the Communist party, to Hoover's disputed sexual orientation and the "secret files" he allegedly kept to blackmail hostile members of Congress, here is the gripping narrative of a government agency caught on a tightrope between presidential administrations and the limits of the law

Murder in Brentwood by Mark Fuhrman( )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop had to be destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grew, so did outrage about the scapegoating of the brilliant detective Mark Fuhrman. Now, the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in this damning expose. Fuhrman takes the reader on a detective's journey through the crucial first twenty-four hours of the investigation. We uncover not only the bloody glove but explosive new evidence, recorded by Fuhrman and his partner at the scene but astonishingly never presented at the trial. 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 set the record straight

8 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 raise grave questions. Where did this rising tide of terror come from? Is it here to stay? And how can it be fought? In this newly revised edition of Fighting Terrorism, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's Likud Party and a noted authority on international terrorism, explores the old and new terrorist threats. Citing diverse examples, Netanyahu demonstrates that domestic terrorist groups are usually no match for an advanced technological society.

Netanyahu concludes by suggesting how democracies can defend themselves against this new threat

The China fantasy how our leaders explain away Chinese repression by Jim Mann( )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist and China expert Mann examines the evolution of American policy toward China and asks, Does it make sense? What are our ideas and hidden assumptions about China? In this vigorous look at China's political evolution and its future, Mann explores two scenarios popular among the policy elite. The Soothing Scenario contends that the spread of capitalism will gradually bring about a development of democratic institutions and a progressive human rights policy. In the Upheaval Scenario, the contradictions between rich and poor, between cities and the countryside, and between the openness of the economy and the unyielding Leninist system will eventually lead to a revolution, chaos, or collapse. Against this backdrop, Mann poses a third scenario: What will happen if Chinese capitalism continues to evolve and expand but the government fails to liberalize? He explores this alternate possibility and offers a startling vision of our future with China
