In this fully revised and updated second edition, David Gero includes the latest information on historic hijackings in all parts of the globe, and a new chapter on the cataclysmic events of 9/11.

In the last quarter century, televised court proceedings have gone from an outlandish idea to a seemingly inevitable reality. Yet,debate continues to rage over the dangers and benefits to the justice system of cameras in the courtroom. Critics contend television transforms the temple of justice into crass theatre. Supporters maintain that silent cameras portray "the real thing," that without them judicial reality is inevitably filtered through the mind and pens of a finite pool of reporters. Television in a courtroom is clearly a two-edged sword, both invasive and informative. Bringing a trial to the widest possible audience creates pressures and temptations for all participants. While it reduces speculations and fears about what transpired, television sometimes forces the general public, which possesses information the jury may not have, into a conflicting assessment of specific cases and the justice system in general. TV or Not TV argues convincingly that society gains much more than it loses when trials are open to public scrutiny and discussion.

In a newly enlarged edition of this eye-opening book, David T. Courtwright offers an original interpretation of a puzzling chapter in American social and medical history: the dramatic change in the pattern of opiate addiction--from respectable upper-class matrons to lower-class urban males, often with a criminal record. Challenging the prevailing view that the shift resulted from harsh new laws, Courtwright shows that the crucial role was played by the medical rather than the legal profession. "Dark Paradise" tells the story not only from the standpoint of legal and medical sources, but also from the perspective of addicts themselves. With the addition of a new introduction and two new chapters on heroin addiction and treatment since 1940, Courtwright has updated this compelling work of social history for the present crisis of the Drug War.

Anatomy of a Plane Crash . . . A few minutes past 7:00 pm., the evening of Nov. 1, 1955, a young man’s fury at having been placed in an orphanage as a child exploded in the night sky over a northern Colorado beet field. As 25 sticks of dynamite erupted in the rear baggage compartment of a DC-6B airliner en route to Portland, Oregon, 44 lives were destroyed instantly in the night sky. Eleven Minutes offers the first and only in-depth account of the crime itself, but also of the perpetrator's murder trial - a trial which posed many challenges not only to the American justice system, but to justice itself.
