Profiling and criminal justice in America : a reference handbook / by Bumgarner, Jeffrey B.;
Includes bibliographical references and index."Seven of ten African American men between the ages of 18 and 34 believe they have been victims of an insidious form of discrimination: racial profiling. Are they right? Or rather, is profiling a legitimate, fair, and effective law enforcement tool? This unique handbook examines the history behind racial, gender, and religious profiling, charts its guiding philosophies, surveys supporting legal doctrines and legislation, and presents the arguments pro and con. It focuses on profiling by police, prosecutors, and judges; federal and state civil rights laws; key legal cases and studies; and more. Whether one wishes to explore racial profiling by state troopers in New Jersey, the identification of serial killers by the FBI, or the screening of potential terrorists by airport security, this is the book to consult. Features: Includes a chronology of key events in American criminal justice including discussions of key court cases, developments in criminal procedure, the development of sentencing guidelines, civil rights milestones, and examples of court-sanctioned profiling such as the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II; Includes brief biographies of key people such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau, John Douglas, Jesse Jackson, and Janet Reno." -- Publisher's website.

A chain of thunder : a novel of the Siege of Vicksburg / by Shaara, Jeff,1952-;
Includes bibliographical references."In May 1863, after months of hard and bitter combat, Union troops under the command of Major General Ulysses S. Grant at long last successfully cross the Mississippi River. They force the remnants of Confederate Lieutenant General John C. Pemberton's army to retreat to Vicksburg, burning the bridges over the Big Black River in its path. But after sustaining heavy casualties in two failed assaults against the rebels, Union soldiers are losing confidence and morale is low. Grant reluctantly decides to lay siege to the city, trapping soldiers and civilians alike inside an iron ring of Federal entrenchments. Six weeks later, the starving and destitute Southerners finally surrender, yielding command of the Mississippi River to the Union forces on July 4--Independence Day--and marking a crucial turning point in the Civil War"--Jacket.

Woody Richman, Alex Meillier, Tanya Meillier, Jessica Brunetto ; original score, Jeff Gibbs.MPAA rating: R for some language.Michael Moore examines the impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). The film moves from Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan. With both humor and outrage, the film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes, and their savings. Looking for an explanation, Moore talks with ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down and tries to get answers Washington, DC. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal, and 14,000 jobs being lost every day. Moore also presents a vision of a more hopeful future.
