Andrew Clark and his family moved to a new community in Knoxville, Tennessee with the hopes of being in a more secured area. He picked what seemed to be the perfect gated community where no one had access to get in or out without using a gate key card. The moment he and his family moved in, a cute little girl from the neighborhood would come knocking on his door every day asking for dog food. Being who he was, he would give it to her, but something wasn´t adding up as his mind wondered. Why was this cute little girl allowed to roam the neighborhood and knock on doors alone? Why did she need dog food every day? Where were her parents? The closer Andrew got to the answers of those questions, the more we wish he never asked. Welcome to Community Terror, where things aren´t what they seem. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cee Scott. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/067956/bk_acx0_067956_sample.mp3.

When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a ground-breaking work. In the intervening years, Herman´s volume has changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims. In a new afterword, Herman chronicles the incredible response the book has elicited and explains how the issues surrounding the topic have shifted within the clinical community and the culture at large. Trauma and Recovery brings a new level of understanding to a set of problems usually considered individually. Herman draws on her own cutting-edge research in domestic violence as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism. The book puts individual experience in a broader political frame, arguing that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. Meticulously documented and frequently using the victims´ own words as well as those from classic literary works and prison diaries, Trauma and Recovery is a powerful work that will continue to profoundly impact our thinking.
Rescuing a naked woman lying in a geranium bed or investigating mysterious murders are not the usual calls for first responder Jim Hart. He expects slip and fall accidents or low blood pressure emergencies in his retirement community of Citrus Ridge Senior Community and Golf Resort. The ghastly crime scenes turn the winter time fun into a terrifying season of death and mystery when the authorities cannot track down the predator responsible. Jim and his wife Gloria could escape the horror and grief by returning to their northern home, but concern for their friends and residents keep them in Florida. With the entire community in a dither over the deaths, the Harts participate in the normal winter activities of golfing, dancing, and pool parties with their friends to distract them from the sadness and loss. Can Jim and Gloria work with the authorities to discover who or what is killing the seniors on Sunshine Boulevard and stop the increasing body count?

For 10 years, Senator Bob Graham served on the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he had access to some of the nation´s most closely guarded secrets. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Graham co-chaired a historic joint House-Senate inquiry into the intelligence community´s failures. From that investigation and his own personal fact-finding, Graham discovered disturbing evidence of terrorist activity and a web of complicity. As a result of his Senate work, Graham has become convinced that the attacks of September 11 could have been avoided, and that the Bush administration´s war on terror has failed to address the immediate danger posed by al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. His book is a disturbing reminder that at the highest levels of national security, now more than ever, intelligence matters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Freed.

Terror Cops is a white-knuckle ride into the battle against extremism; the story gives unprecedented insight into what it´s like to fight terrorism in Britain today. In his two-decades-long career with the Metropolitan Police, Detective Sergeant Harry Keeble has hunted child murderers and child abusers, drug dealers and hit men. And then, in response to the call to arms in the wake of the July 2005 London bombings, he transferred from Hackney´s Child Protection Team to S-Squad, an elite counter terrorism unit. From day one he was thrown into the front line of a number of heart-stopping operations that involved deadly armed hunts for suicide bombers and bomb factories. As Harry won respect for his bravery and commitment, he was asked to lead increasingly complex and sensitive missions. Terror Cops covers, among other subjects, the Haymarket bomb, the Glasgow airport attacks, the liquid bomb plot, how terrorist cells are created, the use of terrorist training camps in the UK, and working in tandem with the Muslim community. 1.

At a time when Israel is under persistent attack - on the battlefield, by international organizations, and in the court of public opinion - Alan Dershowitz presents a powerful case for Israel’s just war against terrorism. In the spirit of his international best-seller, The Case for Israel, Dershowitz shows why Israel´s struggle against Hamas is a fight not only to protect its own citizens, but for all democracies. The nation-state of the Jewish people is providing a model for all who are threatened by terrorist groups - such as ISIS, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram. Having himself been in one of the Hamas terror tunnels, Dershowitz explains why Israel had no choice but to send in ground troops to protect its civilians against Hamas death squads. Dershowitz wrote this book to warn the world that unless Hamas´ strategy of building terror tunnels and firing rockets from behind human shields is denounced and stopped - by the international community, the media, the academy, and good people of all religions, ethnicities, and nationalities - it will be coming soon ´´to a theater near you´´. Covering all the hot-button issues - from the BDS movement, to the rise of anti-Semitism, to the charge of war crimes, to the prospects of peace - Terror Tunnels: The Case for Israel´s Just War Against Hamas is a must-listen for all who care about Israel, peace in the Mideast, human rights, and fairness. 1.
