Kidnap: Inside the Ransom Business Audiobook

Kidnap: Inside the Ransom Business

Author: Anja Shortland Narrator: Henrietta Meire Release Date: October 2019

Kidnap for ransom is a lucrative but tricky business. Millions of people live, travel, and work in areas with significant kidnap risks, yet kidnaps of foreign workers, local VIPs, and tourists are surprisingly rare and the vast majority of abductions are peacefully resolved-often for remarkably low ransoms. In fact, the market for hostages is so well ordered that the crime is insurable. This is a puzzle: ransoming a hostage is the world's most precarious trade. What would be the 'right' price for your loved one-and can you avoid putting others at risk by paying it? What prevents criminals from maltreating hostages? How do you (safely) pay a ransom? And why would kidnappers release a potential future witness after receiving their money? Kidnap: Inside the Ransom Business uncovers how a group of insurers at Lloyd's of London have solved these thorny problems for their customers. Based on interviews with industry insiders (from both sides), as well as hostage stakeholders, it uncovers an intricate and powerful private governance system ordering transactions between the legal and the criminal economies.

Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People Audiobook

Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People

Author: Ben Crump Narrator: Korey Jackson Release Date: October 2019

The president of the National Bar Association and one of the most distinguished civil rights attorneys working today reflects on the landmark cases he has battled-including representing Trayvon Martin's family-and offers a disturbing look at how the justice system is used to promote injustice in this memoir and clarion call as shocking and important as the bestsellers Just Mercy and Slavery by Another Name and Ava DuVernay's film 13th. Benjamin Crump firmly believes in the Constitution and its legal protections-that civil rights legislation covers all Americans, not just those privileged by race, wealth, or pedigree. A fierce and passionate advocate, he has devoted his career to fighting for justice for America's marginalized. Open Season is his inspiring journey working on some of the most egregious cases that have shocked the nation, including those of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. Shaped by his first-hand experience handling civil litigation matters in state and federal courts throughout the country, Open Season reveals the often hidden and systemic injustices minorities face, and illuminates how discrimination in the courthouse devastates real families and communities. Chronicling some of his most memorable legal battles, this brilliant litigator shockingly makes clear how our system is devised for certain people to lose and others to win, and, using evidence and facts, exposes how it is legal to harm-with the intent to destroy-people of color. Crump offers a cogent analysis of legal tenets, including the 13th Amendment, the 1951 Genocide Petition to the United Nations, and controversial Stand Your Ground laws. He compares how race detrimentally influences sentencing, and reveals how police unions protect officers who shoot unarmed civilians. He also makes clear how budget cuts for education, the proliferation of guns, and high unemployment rates all directly contribute to higher crime rates. America must live up to its promise to protect the rights of its citizens equally, Crump maintains. Thoughtful, well-reasoned, and powerfully persuasive, Open Season details one man's life mission preserving the hard-won justice for all.

YOUÆVE BEEN LIED TO BY THE GOVERNMENTWe shrug off this fact as an unfortunate reality. America is the land of the free, after all.

Napolitano reveals how AmericaÆs freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties.ôJudge NapolitanoÆs tremendous knowledge of American law, history, and politics, as well as his passion for freedom, shines through in Lies the Government Told You, as he details how throughout American history, politicians and government officials have betrayed the ideals of personal liberty and limited government.'ùCongressman Ron Paul, M.D. (R-TX), from the Foreword

Misjustice: How British Law is Failing Women

Separated: Family and Community in the Aftermath of an Immigration Raid Audiobook

Separated: Family and Community in the Aftermath of an Immigration Raid

Author: William D. Lopez Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: September 2019

On a Thursday in November of 2013, Guadalupe Morales waited anxiously with her sister-in-law and their four small children. Every Latino man who drove away from their shared apartment above a small auto repair shop that day had failed to return-arrested, one by one, by ICE agents and local police. As the two women discussed what to do next, a SWAT team clad in body armor and carrying assault rifles stormed the room. As Guadalupe remembers it, 'The soldiers came in the house. They knocked down doors. They threw gas. They had guns. We were two women with small children . . . The kids terrified, the kids screaming.' In Separated, William D. Lopez examines the lasting damage done by this daylong act of collaborative immigration enforcement in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Exploring the chaos of enforcement through the lens of community health, Lopez discusses deportation's rippling negative effects on families, communities, and individuals. Focusing on those left behind, Lopez reveals their efforts to cope with trauma, avoid homelessness, handle worsening health, and keep their families together as they attempt to deal with a deportation machine that is militarized, traumatic, implicitly racist, and profoundly violent.

When Should Law Forgive? Audiobook

When Should Law Forgive?

Author: Martha Minow Narrator: Janet Metzger Release Date: September 2019

The potential power of forgiveness in an age of resentment. Crimes and violations of the law require punishment, and our legal system is set up to punish, but what if the system was recalibrated to also weigh grounds for forgiveness? What if something like bankruptcy-a fresh start for debtors-were available to people convicted of crimes? Martha Minow explores the complicated intersection of the law, justice, and forgiveness, asking whether the law should encourage people to forgive, and when courts, public officials, and specific laws should forgive. Who has the right to forgive? Who should be forgiven? And under what terms? Minow tackles these foundational issues by exploring three questions: - What does the international response to child soldiers teach us about the legal treatment of juvenile offenders in the US? - Why are the laws surrounding corporate debt more forgiving than those governing American student and consumer debt, and sovereign debt in the developing world? - When do law's tools of forgiveness, amnesties, and pardons strengthen justice, peace, and democracy (think South Africa), and when do they undermine law's promise of fairness (think Joe Arpaio)?

The Law of the Land: The Evolution of Our Legal System

Author: Charles Rembar Narrator: James Anderson Foster Release Date: August 2019

National Book Award Finalist: 'A learned, thoughtful, witty legal history for the layman' (The New Yorker).
