Star Wars Scrapbook : The Essential Collection (Star Wars Ser.) - Paperback

1998, ISBN: 9780811820608

Hardcover, ID: 584759755

Hidden Brook Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 114 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.3in.Tara Kainer is a writer who pulls no punches - deeply self-examining, she takes on the natural world, love, war, and poverty, and insists on a human response, a recognition of meaning. From the beauty of the spun-butter moon to the rages of the welfare office, from the wide prairie landscape to the many storms of mind and heart, these poems ask essential questions of identity, judgement, and the weight of past experience - all those versionsof yourself imposed on you by others. Interpreting crows caws or the cacophony of war coverage, her attempts to know what things are are bracing and beautiful. She invokes David Suzuki, Ezra Pound, and the poetswhose truth seeps throughthe cage of the printed word. Kainers poems articulate a singular, uncompromising voice measuring the light of my mindby the light of those stars, a reminder of human decency and the importance of the place of the poet: both to get at the truth, if its possible and to be such a foolfor beauty.

Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.2in. x 1.2in.When Bill Bratton was sworn in as New York Citys police commissioner in 1994, he made what many considered a bold promise: The NYPD would fight crime in every borough. . . and win. It seemed foolhardy; even everybody knows you cant win the war on crime. But Bratton delivered. In an extraordinary twenty-seven months, serious crime in New York City went down by 33 percent, the murder rate was cut in half--and Bill Bratton was heralded as the most charismaticand respected law enforcement official in America. . In this outspoken account of his news-making career, Bratton reveals how his cutting-edge policing strategies brought about the historic reduction in crime. Brattons success made national news and landed him on the cover of Time. It also landed him in political hot water. Bratton earned such positive press that before hed completed his first week on the job, the administration of New Yorks media-hungry mayor Rudolph Giuliani, threatened to fire him. Bratton gives a vivid, behind-the-scenes look at the sizzle and substance, and he pulls no punches describing the personalities who really run the city. Bratton grew up in a working-class Boston neighborhood, always dreaming of being a cop. As a young officer under Robert di Grazia, Bostons progressive police commissioner, he got a ground-level view of real police reform and also saw what happens when an outspoken, dynamic, reform-minded police commissioner starts to outshine an ambitious mayor. He was soon in the forefront of the community policing movement and a rising star in the profession. Bratton had turned around four major police departments when he accepted the number one police job in America. When Bratton arrived at the NYPD, New Yorks Finest were almost hiding; they had given up on preventing crime and were trying only to respond to it. Narcotics, Vice, Auto Theft, and the Gun Squads all worked bankers hours while the competition--the bad guys--worked around the clock. Bratton changed that. He brought talent to the top and instilled pride in the force; he listened to the people in the neighborhoods and to the cops on the street. Bratton and his dream team created Compstat, a combination of computer statistics analysis and an unwavering demand for accountability. Cops were called on the carpet, and crime began to drop. With Bratton on the job, New York City was turned around. Today, New Yorks plummeting crime rate and improved quality of life remain a national success story. Bratton is directly responsible, and his strategies are being studied and implemented by police forces across the country and around the world. In Turnaround, Bratton shows how the war on crime can be won once and for all. This item ships from multiple locations.

Star Wars Scrapbook: The Essential Collection - used book

You're a collector, all right, a dust collector!" said young Stephen Sansweet's mom, bemused by his horde of spaceship models. We wonder what she thinks of adult Stephen's vast, comprehensive, and... well, obsessive Star Wars memorabilia collection. Chronicle Books has teamed up with Sansweet (creator of the incredible Star Wars Encyclopedia) to give the rest of us a thrill: our own Star Wars stuff, gathered tidily in a sturdy, spiral-bound package. Darth Vader's ominous helmet opens to reveal page after page of reproductions of everything from fan-club newsletters and ticket stubs to your own real stickers and punch-out cards. Why Star Wars? Sansweet explains in the introduction that it "literally changed my life, and I'm far from alone." He sees this collection as a way to share the fruits of his passion with less lucky fans around the world. And really, it's kind of nice to let him buy 50 bags of chips in search of unique Star Wars prizes inside. You'll feel as if you're being shown around a truly unique museum by a slightly wacky but really enjoyable friend. --Therese Littleton antiques and collectibles,children's books,crafts and hobbies,guides and reviews,humor and entertainment,movies,performing arts,science fiction and fantasy Movies, Chronicle Books
