Clive Cussler meets Dale Brown.“Superb!” (Booklist, starred review) “The best military thriller I’ve read in a very long time. Love the female characters.” (Sheldon McArthur, founder of The Mystery Bookstore, LA) A US Air Force C-130 transport plane, bearing top secret cargo, lies shattered in the Nevada desert at Groom Lake. China’s prototype fifth-generation jet fighter goes missing. Far above, a US supersonic stealth drone flies a very lethal black op. The CIA, the US military command, and the secretive National Reconnaissance Office are all locked in a battle for control of the nation’s future. Miranda Chase, the National Transportation Safety Board’s air-crash savant, lands in the center of the gathering maelstrom. Burdened with a new team and a polarizing personality, she must connect the pieces to stay alive. And she must do it before the wreckage of her past crashes down upon her and destroys US-China relations forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: M. L. Buchman.

Sidney Sheldon introduced the glamorous, scheming Blackwell family and its unforgettable matriarch, Kate Blackwell, in his worldwide best seller Master of the Game. Now a generation has passed, and as the world has changed, so too has America's own royal family.

It starts with a routine traffic stop. Moments later, a young man is killed by a rookie cop. Self-defense or murder? As San Francisco descends into chaos, it's up to Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez to prove the cop's innocence. In the ninth installment of New York Times best-selling author Sheldon Siegel's iconic San Francisco series, ex-spouses Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez have come a long way from their days as small-time defense attorneys. No longer working in a converted martial arts studio on the earthy side of Mission Street. Rosie is now San Francisco's Public Defender, and Mike is the head of the Felony Division. Their daughter is in college. Their son is in middle school. For the first time in years, there is a semblance of order in their lives. It doesn't last long. Johnny Bacigalupi is a rookie police officer and fourth-generation cop. His father is an assistant chief. He's also Mike's godson. On a rainy night, Johnny and his partner pull over a Honda with a broken tail light. When Juwon Jones is asked to exit his car, he bangs the door into Johnny and flees. Johnny corners Jones in a parking lot. Shots ring out and Jones is dead. A rookie mistake? Self-defense? A gun is found under the body - did it belong to Jones? Was it planted? No weapon is visible in body cam footage. Johnny and the other cops insist that Johnny acted in self-defense. The D.A. charges Johnny with first-degree murder. Mike takes a leave from the P.D.'s Office to represent his godson. Meanwhile, TV, cable news, Twitter, and social media explode. Police supporters clash with Black Lives Matter. Mike, Rosie, and Mike's private-investigator brother, Pete, face their biggest challenge in a high-stakes case where San Francisco's streets turn violent. Serve and Protect is the ninth book in the legal thriller series featuring Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Campbell.

Modern agriculture is being transformed by the genetic alteration of seeds, animals, and microorganisms, a process that has produced such products as Flavr Savr tomatoes and crops resistant to specific insects or herbicides. Agricultural Biotechnology and the Environment is the first comprehensive overview of the ongoing transformation of agriculture, exploring the impact of genetic engineering from scientific, social, ethical, and ecological perspectives. Sheldon Krimsky and Roger Wrubel detail the impact the new generation of products is expected to have on agricultural practice and the environment and assess the degree to which current trends in biotechnology match earlier expectations. They also analyze the social and political response to innovations resulting from genetic technology.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

An authoritative collection of the most important writings of an influential political thinker Sheldon Wolin was one of the most influential and original political thinkers of the past fifty years. In Fugitive Democracy, the breathtaking range of Wolin’s scholarship, political commitment, and critical acumen are on full display in this authoritative and accessible collection of essays. This book brings together his most important writings, from classic essays to his late radical essays on American democracy such as 'Fugitive Democracy,' in which he offers a controversial reinterpretation of democracy as an episodic phenomenon distinct from the routinized political management that passes for democracy today. Wolin critically engages a diverse range of political theorists, and grapples with topics such as power, modernization, the sixties, revolutionary politics, and inequality, all the while showcasing enduring commitment to writing civic-minded theoretical commentary on the most pressing political issues of the day. Fugitive Democracy offers enduring insights into many of today’s most pressing political predicaments, and introduces a whole new generation of readers to this provocative figure in contemporary political thought.
