This book presents a concept of the role of police in society as basically repressive. The authors give a historical account of the rise of police from early slave patrols to the present to bolster their position that the police are a repressive force. Instances of police brutality and police control of demonstrators are examined. Technological advances and equipment to aid police departments are pointed to as examples in the police arsenal of repression. Police political surveillance is described, and private security police come under fire also for protecting corporate property and investments.

Velvet Glove, Iron Fist takes the reader on a journey from 15th century Cuba to 21st century California, via Revolutionary France, Victorian Britain, Prohibition Era America and Nazi Germany. Along the way, the author finds uncanny parallels between today's anti-smoking activists and those of the past. Today, as the same tactics begin to be used against those who enjoy alcohol, chocolate, fast food, gambling and perfume, Velvet Glove, Iron Fist provides a timely reminder that once politicians start regulating private behaviour, they find it very hard to quit.

Following eight hundred years of political strife and religious hatred, the people of Belfast, Northern Ireland, Catholic and Protestant alike still struggle with their differences. Two young boys, one Catholic, the other Protestant, both fourteen years of age meet and form a friendship; a bond they agree will never separate them. Little do they realize how their friendship will be tested as they become involved in the seething activities of the terrorists on both sides of the ongoing conflict. "This book ranges over Northern Ireland during what everyone hopes is the aftermath of the tormented era known as "the Troubles." Through a large cast of characters and in no uncertain terms, Yeagle shows how a region is haunted by its past and hands down a difficult legacy to the next generation."

A number of police militarization scholars have explored the paradox of the simultaneous emergence of community policing and militarism in the United States. Several researchers have suggested that police militarization and community policing may be cohesive strategies of state control, with community policing being the “velvet glove” that wraps the “iron fist” of militarization in palatable rhetoric. Alternatively, it has been suggested that these two policing strategies are incoherent, having emerged as a result of the state’s disorganized attempts to maintain control in the face of significant societal changes. To date, little research has examined the link between community policing and police militarization specifically. This study uses community policing data from the 2013 LEMAS survey to examine variation in military equipment acquisition data from the Department of Defense’s 1033 Program between the years 2012 and 2014. Results show that departments engaging in certain community policing activities are significantly less likely to acquire general military equipment, firearms, and military vehicles. These findings suggest that these policing strategies are not necessarily coherent and potentially support the argument that community policing efforts can buffer militarization. However, these results also highlight the need for more empirical research on existing theories of militarization, as well as the causes and effects of police militarism and community policing activities.

Lineville, Iowa, is your typical small town: box-lunch auctions, doors left unlocked, and plenty of gossip. So the last thing Lineville's inhabitants expect the summer of 1920 is murder. When snooty Sophia Vander Veen, part owner of the Mineral Springs Resort, is found murdered after the disastrous Fourth of July ball, not many people are upset. But Maude Lovett, a self-styled detective who prides herself in her shrewd observation abilities, vows to get to the bottom of the murder and the malicious pranks that led up to Sophia's death. Maude makes it her duty to determine if the pranks—a snake in Sophia's closet, a headless statue in her bed, and noxious gas in her suite of rooms—and the murder were committed by the same person. With suspects from bootleggers to close acquaintances to waiters at the Mineral Springs Resort, Maude has her work cut out for her and must quickly eliminate suspects in order to squelch rising fear. With help from her niece, Lilly, and her friends; her sister, Nell; and everyone in between, Maude labors to bring justice to her once-safe town. Upon questioning her final batch of suspects, Maude learns the killer's identity and then uses herself as bait in a dangerous trap to snare the murderous perpetrator. Surprising twists, a bit of romance, and humor laced throughout are sure to keep you turning the pages until you too discover the target of Maude's iron-willed persistence.

More than 15 years have passed since Joe Barndt wrote his influential and widely acclaimed Dismantling Racism (1991, Augsburg Books). He has now written a replacement volume – powerful, personal, and practical – that reframes the whole issue for the new context of the twenty-first century. With great clarity Barndt traces the history of racism, especially in white America, revealing its various personal, institutional, and cultural forms. Without demonizing anyone or any race, he offers specific, positive ways in which people in all walks, including churches, can work to bring racism to an end. He includes the newest data on continuing conditions of People of Color, including their progress relative to the minimal standards of equality in housing, income and wealth, education, and health. He discusses current dimensions of race as they appear in controversies over 9/11, New Orleans, and undocumented workers. Includes analytical charts, definitions, bibliography, and exercises for readers.
