23/7: Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long-T...

Originally meant to be brief and exceptional, solitary confinement in US prisons has become long-term and common. Prisoners spend 23 hours a day in featureless cells, with no visitors or human contact for years on end, and they are held entirely at administrators' discretion. Keramet Reiter tells the history of one "supermax", California's Pelican Bay State Prison, whose extreme conditions recently sparked a statewide hunger strike by 30,000 prisoners. This book describes how Pelican Bay was created without legislative oversight, in fearful response to 1970s radicals; how easily prisoners slip into solitary; and the mental havoc and social costs of years and decades in isolation. The product of 15 years of research in and about prisons, this book provides essential background to a subject now drawing national attention. 1. Language: English. Narrator: C.S.E Cooney.

Montego Bay, Jamaica: an illustrious career on the criminal bench has created no shortage of enemies for Jamaican Supreme Court Judge Everton Wrenn. When the judge is found murdered at his seafront villa the investigation falls into the hands of intrepid Detective Raythan Preddy. The return from Glasgow of Detective Sean Harris means that Preddy - while needing the assistance - cannot afford to drop his guard. As the Pelican Walk officers narrow down their list of suspects, a gun goes missing from police custody, resulting in the death of a man who is either a prime suspect or a potential witness. With the judiciary threatening an island-wide strike and the court system heading for chaos, can Preddy identify the murderer? 1.

Louisiana During World War II
33,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While the impact of World War II on America and other countries has been exhaustively chronicled, few historians have investigated the experiences of individual states during the tumultuous war years. In his study of Louisiana's home front from 1939 to 1945, Jerry Purvis Sanson examines changes in politics, education, agriculture, industry, and society that forever altered the Pelican State. The war era was a particularly important time in Louisiana's colorful political history. The gubernatorial victories of prominent anti-Huey Long candidates Sam Jones in 1940 and Jimmie Davis in 1944 reflected shifting sentiments toward politicians and heralded a changing of the guard in the statehouse. This created a system of active dual--faction politics that continued for the next decade. The war also transformed the state's economy: agricultural mechanization accelerated to compensate for labor shortages, and industries increased production to meet military demands. Louisiana's educational system modified its curriculum in response to the war, providing technical training and sponsoring scrap--metal collections and war--stamp sales drives. Sanson explores the war's effect on the everyday lives of Louisianians, showing how their actions at home provided them with a sense of personal participation in the titanic effort against the Axis powers. He also points out that, while many found their lives limited by war, two groups--African Americans and women-- experienced increased opportunities as they moved from low--paying jobs to more lucrative positions vacated by white males who had departed for the service. Now condensed for easy and efficient access, Sanson's historical account provides a wide--ranging yet intimate look at how the war was brought home to the people of the Bayou State.

I Will Open My Mouth in Parables is a collection of fictional short stories recounting events that take place in or near the small town of Quick, West Virginia. The stories are set in the 1950's and are told in the first person by "Richie Smith." Within each taradiddle you meet the interesting people for whom the story is named – Joshua, the unborn child whose mother is a Disgrace; Johnny, who encounters the Devil's Assistant; Lefty, a prophet of the True Religion; Uncle Ron, who shunned the chance of being a Debonair; and Robby, the Prodigal Peacenik come home. The stories are told so vividly that you may believe you actually were there, that you met these people, and that you lived through the experience. These tales will make you laugh and make you cry, and make you wish you had known the people who appear in the true-to-life parables – if only they had been real. The audio book is narrated by Paul Morella, a prominent Washington, DC, actor, who, for 35 years, has appeared at about every major theatre in the region, as well as in films, and on TV and radio. Paul, a multiple Helen Hayes award nominee, created and presented two highly acclaimed one-person shows – A Passion For Justice: An Encounter with Clarence Darrow and A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas. Film credits include The Pelican Brief, The Replacements, That Night, The Hunley and Diner, and he has had roles in The Wire, Homicide, The Corner and The District. He also starred opposite Julie Harris and James Farentino in All My Sons, and Marsha Mason and Fred Thompson in The Best Man, both for LA Theatre Works. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Morella.
