The Killing of Karen Silkwood: The Story Behind...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Karen Silkwood, an employee of the Kerr-McGee plutonium processing plant, was killed in a car crash on her way to deliver important documents to a newspaper reporter in 1974. Silkwood was a union activist concerned about health and safety issues at the plant, and her death at age 28 was considered by many to be highly suspicious. Was it Kerr-McGee's revenge on a troublesome whistle-blower? Or was it part of a much larger conspiracy reaching from the Atomic Energy Commission to the FBI and the CIA? Richard Rashke leads us through the myriad of charges and countercharges, theories and facts, and reaches conclusions based solely on the evidence in hand. Originally published in 1981, his audiobook offers a vivid, edgy picture of the tensions that racked this country in the 1970s. However, the volume is not only an important historical document. Complex, fascinating characters populate this compelling insider's view of the nuclear industry. The issues it explores - whistle-blowers, worker safety, the environment, and nuclear vulnerability - have not lost relevance today, 26 years after Silkwood's white Honda Civic was found trapped in a concrete culvert near Oklahoma City. For this second edition, Rashke has added a preface and three short chapters that explore what has been learned about Silkwood since the book's original publication, explain what happened to the various actors in the drama, and discuss the long-term effects of the events around Silkwood's death. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Karen White. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/020745/bk_adbl_020745_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Richard Taus Story Part One, to Be a Hero; ...
26,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

In Richard Taus' biography, it is evident that from an early age, Richard Taus knew he wanted to be a hero, a real American hero. However, he never imagined that he would be his son's hero. In Elliott's article, Richard says of his son: 'He was almost four then and on the orphanage's 'death list.' He weighed 20 pounds, boils covered his body, and he was coughing up blood.' Richard had saved David's life. Covering a dramatic period in American History, this boyhood memoir is the story about Richard in his earliest experiences, from childhood to adulthood. This story concerns the experiences and influences, both positive and negative, that shaped his life and the lives of others during a turbulent period in the Twentieth Century. To Be A Hero is about an American family, reflecting what so many families had to endure while serving this great nation in wartime and in peacetime. It tells of the sufferings all endured as a consequence of circumstances and mistaken, if not prideful, decisions made by the American government. This story should surely ring true to many Americans whose lives were affected by manmade disasters and tragic accidents. The Richard Taus Story Part One is the prequel to The Richard Taus Story Part Two, An American Hero: Stolen Honor, which tells the true story of corruption and CIA/FBI intrigue. Has whistle-blower Richard Taus been railroaded? Has this decorated army officer and FBI agent been a casualty of FBI and CIA intrigue? Many believe this to be the case for Taus who questioned unlawful Intelligence agencies' operations. Investigate the life of this man who is serving what amounts to a life sentence and decide for yourself. Keywords - Taus, Adoption, Tet Offensive, Military, Vietnam, Hero, FBI, CIA, Whistle-Blower

To Be A Hero, Stolen Honor
12,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This the true story of an FBI agent, a US Army Colonel, a decorated hero of the Vietnam War, and a true patriot, working to protect the country against enemies from outside and inside the US government. It is a chilling and disturbing tale of corrupt activities, tragic consequences, and sinister individuals, who fostered decades of nefarious operations that only served to betray and harm all Americans. The purpose of this book is to make the American public aware of information from insiders about the serious misconduct in the three branches of government. This misconduct involves people of both political parties who have inflicted devastating injuries to countless innocent people and upon American national security interests. This book focuses on political corruption and government complicity, organized criminal activities and operations, and United States involvement in foreign wars and the suppression of citizens' civil liberties. Keywords - FBI, CIA, Corruption, Richard Taus, Mob, Drugs, Americans, War, Army, Enemies, Vietnam, Politics, South America, Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Israel, Columbia, Mexico, Guerrilla, William Sullivan, Mafia, Narcotics, Iran Contra, 9-11, Whistle Blower
