Terror grips the city… In a series of brutal murders, three young women have been killed on the subway, and panic spreads through the transit system. To make matters worse, one of the investigating detectives is considered a suspect. Detective Inspector Ian McBriar and his team need to track down the real killer before more lives are lost. The one thread that links the deaths together is a thin one, and the only thing the murders have in common is something that makes no sense. This may be Ian’s last case: ghosts from his past, and a chance for a better future, could change his life. Death Never Lets Go is the fourth exciting installment in the Ian McBriar Murder Mystery series, set in Toronto in 1978, the story of a Metis police detective who conquered bigotry, prejudice, and his own personal tragedies to succeed.

White-Jacket; or, The World in a Man-of-War is the fifth book by American writer Herman Melville, first published in London in 1850. The book is based on the author's fourteen months service in the United States Navy, aboard the frigate USS "Neversink"(actually the USS United States). Based on Melville's experiences as a common seaman aboard the frigate USS United States from 1843 to 1844 and stories that other sailors told him, the novel is severely critical of virtually every aspect of American naval life and thus qualifies as Melville's most politically strident work. At the time, though, the one thing that journalists and politicians focused on in the novel was its graphic descriptions of flogging and the horrors caused by its arbitrary use; in fact, because Harper & Bros. made sure the book got into the hands of every member of Congress, White-Jacket was instrumental in abolishing flogging in the U.S. Navy forever.

Today, personal privacy is becoming a thing of the past due to the information revolution, the intrusive gossip hungry media, and other social and technological developments making everyone's life an open book. As a result, individuals and organized groups have been fighting to create more privacy protections from those seeking to invade their privacy and learn information about them, which can quickly be spread worldwide due to the power of the Internet. The Death of Privacy raises intriguing questions about an individual's desire for the right to privacy versus Big Brother's "right to know". For example: May an employer inquire about an employee's personal history beyond details that may affect job performance? Just how far can the press go in revealing anything about anyone? Can the police demand to search your home or car as part of an official investigation in your neighborhood? What privacy protection exists if your name and address are obtained by marketers and mailing list companies? How do the "new technologies"-cellular phones, faxes, e-mail, computer bulletin boards-influence the overall future of privacy? Dr. Gini Graham Scott, a nationally recognized expert on personal privacy and other related issues, gives a thoughtful overview of privacy battles in and out of the courtroom that have directly influenced what can remain private. In addition, this book shows the growing impact of print and broadcast media from the early privacy skirmishes generated by the press back in the late 1800s through the mid1990s, which turned today's media into tabloid journalism. The Death of Privacy steers an objective course in explaining the varying views on both sides of the battles, while advocating the right of individuals to maintain as much personal privacy protection of possible. This book will be of importance to anyone who wants to understand the decline of personal privacy today, and will be of special interest to sociologists, legal and medical professionals, politicians, historians, and individual rights' advocates, still fighting for personal privacy today.

"The book's thrust conjoins four-field anthropology (biological, cultural, archaeological, and linguistic) and a rigorous evolutionary framework to a postmodern dialogic, reflexive stance - that is, it views humanity as inescapably a product of nature without sacrificing the interpretive social constructions that "turn a primate into a poem."" "General readers, anthropologists, and students of Latin American and southern culture will be enthralled by Richardson's combination of ethnographic detail and religious insight that speaks to the question of what to do about death within the construct of human evolution."--BOOK JACKET.
