Veteran street cop Loren Christensen explores one of the most frightening yet fascinating occurrences of modern society: riots. In Riot, Christensen leads you deep inside angry mobs and brings you along with the cops who clash head-to-head with them in the streets to show you in riveting detail what a riot is, how and why it happens, who participates and what it feels like to be in the middle of one. You will learn about: the powerful psychological influences that affect everyone involved, from street cop to bottle thrower to business owner typical conditions that set the stage for a major riot, and common triggers that set the violence in motion the many kinds of riots - race, sports, prison, political - and how they are all equally intense, destructive and deadly Through his own experiences as a military and big-city police officer on the front lines of riots; interviews with protestors, cops, reporters, prison guards and a host of other players; and the words of experts on crowd psychology and mob violence, Christensen paints a graphic portrait of the riot experience in the streets of America and around the world.

David Millers expanded third edition makes it the definitive source on collective behavior and collective action. Up-to-date and meticulously researched, this popular volume continues to provide a systematic overview of theory and research. Each topic is meaningfully linked to the appropriate theories of collective behavior (mass hysteria, emergent-norm, and value-added perspectives) and collective action (social-behavioral interactionist, resource mobilization, and value-added perspectives). Rumor, mass hysteria, fads and fashion, UFOs, sports, migrations, disasters, riots, protest, and social movements are among the topics presented in a unique side-by-side presentation of the two disciplines. In an engaging, accessible style, Miller offers detailed discussion of classic sociological studies interspersed with intriguing modern-day examples that students will enjoy reading. His thorough topical treatment effectively reduces the need for outside readings.

Forty-Eight Land by Larry Dudley In June 1940, at the very moment the Nazis are occupying Paris, Roy Hawkins, a young Anglo-American agent working for MI6, receives orders rushing him to 48 Land British Intelligence's slang for the U.S. and its 48 states. Shaken by the fall of France, deeply disillusioned, angered and embittered by the West's failure to head off the Nazis, and fighting burnout, Hawkins learns Britain wants him undercover as an agent in his father's country. Outraged, he initially refuses he will not jeopardize his ability to return to the US but for a friend he agrees to take one temporary assignment. Forced to make himself a stranger in a land he wants to see as home, always on guard, Hawkins finds the America he expected to find is now an alien, topsy-turvey place obsessed with "Fortress America" with a powerful right wing on the rise. His alienation deepens when he trails a Nazi agent to the elite Saratoga racing meet, discovers rot beneath the glamor and glitter, and wonders if there's anyone left who isn't corrupt, including some of the nation's leading financiers and a powerful radio commentator. He's tempted to take a generous offer to join the F.B.I. and walk away. But when he discovers a conspiracy that jeopardizes everything America stands for, he has to act, even though he knows he may lose the great new love he's found.

The basis of the PBS American Experience documentary Stonewall Uprising. In 1969, a series of riots over police action against The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, changed the longtime landscape of the homosexual in society literally overnight. Since then the event itself has become the stuff of legend, with relatively little hard information available on the riots themselves. Now, based on hundreds of interviews, an exhaustive search of public and previously sealed files, and over a decade of intensive research into the history and the topic, Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution brings this singular event to vivid life in this, the definitive story of one of history's most singular events. A Randy Shilts / Publishing Triangle Award Finalist "Riveting...Not only the definitive examination of the riots but an absorbing history of pre-Stonewall America, and how the oppression and pent-up rage of those years finally ignited on a hot New York night." - Boston Globe

-16°C, sunlight, silence. I drove the children to school, then went to see the revolution. I walked between the tents. Talked with revolutionaries. They were weary today. The air was thick with the smell of old campfires. Ukraine Diaries is acclaimed writer Andrey Kurkov’s first-hand account of the ongoing crisis in his country. From his flat in Kiev, just five hundred yards from Independence Square, Kurkov can smell the burning barricades and hear the sounds of grenades and gunshot. Kurkov’s diaries begin on the first day of the pro-European protests in November, and describe the violent clashes in the Maidan, the impeachment of Yanukovcyh, Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the separatist uprisings in the east of Ukraine. Going beyond the headlines, they give vivid insight into what it’s like to live through – and try to make sense of – times of intense political unrest.
