Politicians from all sides compete to convince us they can fix our immigration ´´problem”, but all the solutions on offer look remarkably similar. Apparently, if we want less inequality at home, we need less immigration from abroad. But what if this assumption is wrong? What if the drive to restrict migration isn’t reducing poverty here, but creating a migration system that is actually exacerbating local inequality? In The Huddled Masses, migration researcher Katy Long shows why we need to rethink the relationship between immigration and inequality, and avoid pursuing policies that pit poor immigrants against poor workers at the expense of both groups. Drawing on cutting-edge research, Long offers an incisive analysis of our migration system that shows how our efforts to restrict immigration are actually widening the gap between wealthy corporation and ordinary citizens. She exposes how companies like G4S and Serco profit from a billion-dollar migration industry while locking their own workers into a low-wage, low-skill economy; how stringent minimum income requirements mean half of Britons no longer have the right to marry a foreigner and bring their spouse to live with them in the UK; and how the UK Government - despite being a vocal opponent of EU freedom of movement - has repeatedly refused to assist the EU in efforts to crack down on the exploitation of cheap ´´posted” migrant labour, citing the need to protect British ´´competitiveness”. The Huddled Masses assesses the real contribution that migrants make to the economy, exploding the myth that migrants ´´take our jobs”. The data presented makes clear that immigration plays a critical role in sustaining the social institutions that offer citizens real protection against widening social and economic inequality. The migration debate is usually presented as a national problem: but as Long makes clear, we need to recognize migration is also a class issue. And 1. Language: English. Narrator: Helen Stern.

From the bestselling author of The Neon Lawyer comes a page-turning thriller about a scrappy lawyer and his fight for justice.Personal injury attorney Peter Game has a reputation: cynical, untroubled by ethics, and willing to take any case, anytime, in his pursuit of the win. He dreams of a sweetheart score that’ll make his name and net him millions. Then comes the lightning rod: a school shooting just outside of Salt Lake City. His client: the devastated mother of one of the victims.What she wants is understandable - just not simple: to sue the manufacturers of the automatic weapon used in the mass killing. Game’s opponent, brilliant lawyer Brennen Garvin, is the least of his problems: the entire legal system, influenced by decades of pressure from powerful gun lobbies, is stacked against him.For Game, this is the case of a lifetime. He’s just not sure his trademark rules will work in his favor. And he’s not sure he wants them to. As Game’s lust for victory gives way to a hunger for justice, he could lose everything - or win back his soul. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Damron.

How to Win an Election is an ancient Roman guide for campaigning that is as up-to-date as tomorrow´s headlines. In 64 BC when idealist Marcus Cicero, Rome´s greatest orator, ran for consul (the highest office in the Republic), his practical brother Quintus decided he needed some no-nonsense advice on running a successful campaign. What follows in his short letter are timeless bits of political wisdom, from the importance of promising everything to everybody and reminding voters about the sexual scandals of your opponents to being a chameleon, putting on a good show for the masses, and constantly surrounding yourself with rabid supporters. Presented here in a lively and colorful new translation, this unashamedly pragmatic primer on the humble art of personal politicking is dead-on (Cicero won) - and as relevant today as when it was written.A little-known classic in the spirit of Machiavelli´s Prince, How to Win an Election is required reading for politicians and everyone who enjoys watching them try to manipulate their way into office. 1.

With Allied armies poised on the banks of the Rhine, Nazi Germany tottered on the brink of collapse. The ensuing battles on German soil - especially those in the so-called Ruhr Pocket - were as fierce and hard-fought as any in the European theater. Going well beyond previous accounts, Derek S. Zumbro chronicles this key military campaign from a unique and fresh perspective - that of the defeated German soldiers and civilians caught in the final maelstrom of the war´s Western front. Best known for his translation of In Deadly Combat, the best-selling World War II memoir, Zumbro chronicles the relentless assault on the Ruhr Pocket through German eyes as the Allied juggernaut battered the region´s cities, villages, and homes into submission. He tells of children pressed into service by a desperate Nazi regime - and of even more desperate parents trying to save their sons from sacrifice at the 11th hour. He also tells of unspeakable conditions suffered by foreign laborers, POWs, and political opponents in the Ruhr Valley and of the mass graves that gave Allied soldiers a grisly new understanding of their enemy. Zumbro also recounts the story of Field Marshal Walter Model´s final hours. His eventual suicide effectively ended the existence of the Wehrmacht´s once-formidable Army Group B after being pursued, methodically encircled, and finally destroyed by US and British forces. Through interviews with surviving members of Model´s former staff, Zumbro has uncovered the attitudes - and harrowing experiences - of beleaguered officers that official records could never convey. Other interviews with former soldiers reveal the extent to which Allied bombing contributed to the rapid deterioration of German combat effectiveness and tell of civilians begging soldiers to abandon the war. Zumbro´s deep research reveals the identities of specific characters discussed in previous works but never identified, describes the final hours of German off 1. Language: English.

In this election caper from a leading political operative and commentator, a cynical campaign manager finds his family skeletons coming out of the closet on the eve of the convention. New Orleans, July 2016: It´s hot and sticky, and JD Callahan is fighting the campaign of his life. His candidate, the sitting vice president, is neck and neck with an anti-immigrant right-wing populist as the Republicans head into their first brokered convention in decades. Callahan, a New Orleans native without much affection for his hometown, is frantically trying to coordinate the convention and round up delegates when his estranged brother shows up, asks for an inconvenient favor, and threatens to reveal embarrassing family secrets if JD says no. Soon after, a series of bombs sets off a mass panic and tilts the convention toward the vice president´s law-and-order opponent. As JD scrambles to contain the damage, he finds himself contending with a sexy, gun-toting local gossip columnist, an FBI agent convinced that JD is cynical enough to set the bombs himself, and a host of family secrets. The Innocent Have Nothing to Fear is a hilarious, sharply entertaining whodunit and a knowing satire of our political culture - the perfect summer listen for everyone who says he´s sick to death of the 2016 campaign but can´t stop reading and listening about it. 1.

A consistently exciting and never predictable series. (Associated Press) When Grace Ozmian, the beautiful and reckless daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire, first goes missing, the NYPD assumes she has simply sped off on another wild adventure. Until the young woman´s body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Lieutenant CDS Vincent D´Agosta quickly takes the lead. He knows his investigation will attract fierce scrutiny, so D´Agosta is delighted when FBI Special Agent A. X. L. Pendergast shows up at the crime scene assigned to the case. ´´I feel rather like Brer Rabbit being thrown into the briar patch,´´ Pendergast tells D´Agosta, ´´because I have found you here, in charge. Just like when we first met, back at the Museum of Natural History.´´ But neither Pendergast nor D´Agosta are prepared for what lies ahead. A diabolical presence is haunting the greater metropolitan area, and Grace Ozmian was only the first of many victims to be murdered...and decapitated. Worse still, there´s something unique to the city itself that has attracted the evil eye of the killer. As mass hysteria sets in, Pendergast and D´Agosta find themselves in the crosshairs of an opponent who has threatened the very lifeblood of the city. It´ll take all of Pendergast´s skill to unmask this most dangerous foe - let alone survive to tell the tale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rene Auberjonois.
