Knife-on-Knife and Multiple Opponent Knife Defense Strategies (Knife Training Methods and Techniques for Martial Artists, #8): Martina Sprague
Nabokov’s third novel, The Luzhin Defense, is a chilling story of obsession and madness. As a young boy, Luzhin was unattractive, distracted, withdrawn, sullen — an enigma to his parents and an object of ridicule to his classmates. He takes up chess as a refuge from the anxiety of his everyday life. His talent is prodigious and he rises to the rank of grandmaster — but at a cost: in Luzhin’s obsessive mind, the game of chess gradually supplants reality. His own world falls apart during a crucial championship match, when the intricate defense he has devised withers under his opponent’s unexpected and unpredictable lines of assault. One of the 20th century’s master prose stylists, Vladimir Nabokov was born in St. Petersburg in 1899. He studied French and Russian literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, then lived in Berlin and Paris, where he launched a brilliant literary career. In 1940, he moved to the United States and achieved renown as a novelist, poet, critic, and translator. He taught literature at Wellesley, Stanford, Cornell, and Harvard. In 1961, he moved to Montreux, Switzerland, where he died in 1977. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mel Foster. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/002611/bk_brll_002611_sample.mp3.

Everything you´ve been taught about the World War II ´´internment camps´´ in America is wrong: They were not created primarily because of racism or wartime hysteria They did not target only those of Japanese descent They were not Nazi-style death camps In her latest investigative tour-de-force, New York Times best-selling author Michelle Malkin sets the historical record straight - and debunks radical ethnic alarmists who distort history to undermine common-sense, national security profiling. The need for this myth-shattering book is vital. President Bush´s opponents have attacked every homeland defense policy as tantamount to the ´´racist´´ and ´´unjustified´´ World War II internment. Bush´s own transportation secretary, Norm Mineta, continues to milk his childhood experience at a relocation camp as an excuse to ban profiling at airports. 1. Language: English.

It is 1982, and assistant prosecuting attorney Renee Steele works for the Sex Crimes Unit of the Akers County Prosecuting Attorney´s Office in Sparrow´s Crossing, Michigan. In her latest case, Renee prosecutes wealthy businessman Kurt Bochner, who is accused of raping a young woman during a date. Alice Prescott, a cocktail waitress and aspiring model, claims the former local college star quarterback date raped her. The case hits close to home for Renee, who was the victim of date rape 13 years earlier while in law school. She never pressed charges against her assailant, but the crime has affected both her professional and personal life. She is currently dating corporate attorney Lawrence Quinn, but finds herself attracted to Sparrow´s Crossing police detective Paul Kelly, an investigator for her current rape case. Renee is thrown for a loop when Paul´s separate investigation into an international escort service operation yields unexpected results that lead to a shocking betrayal. In the meantime, she is pitted in court against a formidable opponent, defense attorney Deana Krane, who has never lost a case and is determined to win an acquittal for her client Kurt Bochner. In Fractured Trust, date rape and prostitution are put under the microscope. The results are anything but certain, and there is a stunning climax. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carmen Beaubeaux.

Reciprocal Representation in a World´s Assembly:International Bonding and Reciprocity Defense Army (International), Suggestions for the Advocates of and Opponents to the League of Nations (Classic Reprint) Emil G. Beck
Every action in Martial Arts and self defense aims at discovering the opponents weak points, exploiting them and finally disabling him/her without injury or to bring him/her under control. Although our knowledge about the build-up of the human body has multiplied, in many books on the subject of Martial Arts an explanation concerning the effect of various striking and pressure techniques has reduced to mentioning merely causes pain, paralyzes, death . Explanations are missing or are left in the realm of the esoteric. However it would be appreciated very much, if not simply from a standpoint of personal responsibility, if the followers of Martial Arts delved more into the possible medical outcome of their actions.

From best-selling crime novelist (and deputy district attorney) William P. Wood... A killer so savage (and so sly) that the brutal frenzy of his crimes makes an unassailable insanity defense - such is the opponent facing Tony Fraser, a young district attorney willing to risk anything, everything, for a sentence of death. Plotted against by court psychiatrists, tormented by vanishing evidence and fugitive witnesses, his own wife a target, Fraser finds himself checkmated by the accused - until he seizes an opportunity to go beyond the letter of the law. To experience the final, stunning climax of Rampage is to thrill to the tensions of a high-stakes capital case, to go behind the scenes of our justice system, and to find a dark and terrifying clockwork there. 1.
