The Way the Wind Blew - A History of the Weather Underground (Paperback): Ron Jacobs The Way the Wind Blew - A History of the Weather Underground (Paperback)
Ron Jacobs
R462 Discovery Miles 4 620 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Bombing its way into the headlines of the early 1970s the Weather Underground was one of the most dramatic symbols of the anger felt by young Americans opposed to the US presence in Vietnam. Mauled in street battles with the Chicago police during the Days of Rage demonstrations, Weather concluded that traditional political protest was insufficient to end the war. They turned instead to underground guerrilla combat. In this highly readable history, Ron Jacobs captures the hair-raising drama of a campaign which planted bombs in banks, military installations and, twice on successive days, in the US Capitol. He describes the group's formation of clandestine revolutionary cells, its leaders' disavowal of monogamous relationships, and their use of LSD to strengthen bonds between members. He recounts the operational failures of the group - three members died when a bomb they were building exploded in Greenwich Village - as well as its victories including a successful jailbreak of Timothy Leary. Never short-changing the fierce debates which underpinned the Weather's strategy, Jacobs argues that the groups eventual demise resulted as much from the contradictions of its politics as from the increasingly repressive FBI attention.

WINNER - Sports, 2016 Best Books Award BECAUSE NOT ALL KRAV MAGA IS THE SAME TM Israeli krav maga is the official self-defense system of the Israel Defense Forces. Krav maga training shares the same principles for civilians, law enforcement, and military personnel alike to deliver them from harm's way. Goals however, are different for law enforcement and military personnel. This book is designed for security-conscious civilians, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and security professionals alike who want to improve their chances of not just surviving an armed attack, but increase the odds of prevailing without serious injury. Krav maga's popularity in professional law enforcement, military, and security circles is attributable to its practicality, simplicity, quick retention, easy learning curve, and brutal effectiveness. This effectiveness is built on a few core tenets and simple building blocks. General principles are applied and customized to suit the needs of a dynamic violent situation. Contents include: *Mind-sets, reactions, and tactics in response to violence*The highest-level counters against multiple armed attacks and threats*Core kick, clinch, and tackle defenses*Core ground survival tactics*Multiple-opponent strategies and tactics*Impact weapon defenses*Edged weapon defenses*Firearm disarms and retention*Includes 954 detailed photographs The most up-to-date tactics presented in this book focus on the most common violent scenarios. These techniques derive from the author's translation of the Israeli Krav Maga Association (IKMA) curriculum. The IKMA is the governing body for krav maga, recognized by the Israeli government and headed by Grandmaster Haim Gidon. Responsible people seek krav maga training as a shield against violence.

Faithful Exit - My journey to the edge of suicide and back (Paperback): Ron Jacobs Faithful Exit - My journey to the edge of suicide and back (Paperback)

Today, there is an ever growing demand for control over the time, place and means of dying. Many governments are passing laws which allow people to choose death once it appears that their life will end soon anyway. It is hard to argue with their logic. Why shouldn't we have the option of death with dignity rather than the desperate struggle of the suffering in their last days? This book is not an attempt to argue the legality or morality of assisted suicide. It is birthed from my own encounter with the desire to escape from incredible pain. In my struggle, I came to the place where I wanted to die, I prayed for death, I longed for it to come but it remained at a distance. I read books on suicide, made plans on how I could do it and ensure success and walked right up to the edge of that chasm. Few people really understand the kind of pain that can drive a person to that place. My encounter with a very rare, untreatable and painful disease brought me to that place. As a Christian, I met God there and he taught me some valuable lessons that I want to share with you. Some of you may feel guilty for even having the feeling that you want to end your life. Others are even at this moment making a plan to finish it. I'm not here to condemn you. Please just take a moment and listen to my story before you do anything.

1975. America has lost its war in Vietnam and Cambodia. Racially-tinged riots are tearing the city of Boston apart. The politics and counterculture of the 1960s is disintegrating into nothing more than sex, drugs and rock and roll. The Boston Red Sox are on one of their improbable runs toward a postseason appearance. In a suburban town in Maryland, a young couple is murdered and another young man is accused. The couple are white and the accused is black. It is up to his friends and family to prove he is innocent. This is a story of suburban ennui, race, murder and injustice. Religion and politics, liberal lawyers and racist cops. In Short Order Frame Up, Ron Jacobs has written a piece of crime fiction that exposes the wound that is US racism. Two cultures existing side by side and across generations--a river very few dare to cross. His characters work and live with and next to each other, often unaware of the other's real life. When the murder occurs, however, those people that care about the man charged must cross that river and meet somewhere in between in order to free him from (what is to them) an obvious miscarriage of justice.
