The Consequential Frontier: Challenging the Privatization of Space Audiobook

The Consequential Frontier: Challenging the Privatization of Space

Author: Peter Ward Narrator: Gary Galone Release Date: February 2020

This in-depth work of reportage dares to ask what's at stake in privatizing outer space. Earth is in trouble-so dramatically that we're now scrambling to explore space for valuable resources and a home for permanent colonization. With the era of NASA's dominance now behind us, the private sector is winning this new space race. But if humans and their private wealth have made such a mess of Earth, who can say we won't do the same in space? In The Consequential Frontier, business and technology journalist Peter Ward is raising this vital question before it's too late. Interviewing tech CEOs, inventors, scientists, lobbyists, politicians, and future civilian astronauts, Ward sheds light on a whole industry beyond headline-grabbing rocket billionaires like Bezos and Musk, and introduces the new generation of activists trying to keep it from rushing recklessly into the cosmos. With optimism for what humans might accomplish in space if we could leave our tendency toward deregulation, inequality, and environmental destruction behind, Ward shows just how much cooperation it will take to protect our universal resource and how beneficial it could be for all of us.

Identity Crisis: The Murder, the Mystery, and the Missing DNA Audiobook

Identity Crisis: The Murder, the Mystery, and the Missing DNA

Author: Jefferson Bass Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: February 2020

Renowned forensic anthropologist Bill Bass-founder of the Body Farm-tackles one of his most baffling cases ever in this real-life spellbinder. In 1978, fifty-six-year-old Leoma Patterson left a bar in Clinton, Tennessee, and was never seen again. Six months later, a female skeleton was found on a wooded lakeshore in a neighboring county. The bones were consistent with those of the missing woman, and one of Patterson's daughters recognized a ring found at the death scene as her mother's. The bones were buried, and six years later, a relative of Patterson's-one of the men she was last seen alive with-confessed to killing her. Case closed. But the tentative identification-made years before DNA testing was available to confirm it-failed to convince some of Patterson's relatives. And so it was that in 2005 Dr. Bass found himself winding around hairpin curves to the mountainside grave, where he would unearth the disputed remains and collect DNA samples. The forensic twists and turns that followed would test the limits of DNA technology . . . and of Dr. Bass's half-century of forensic knowledge.

The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against a Criminal President Audiobook

The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against a Criminal President

Author: Jill Wine-Banks Narrator: Cassandra Campbell, Jill Wine-Banks Release Date: February 2020

This program includes a prologue and epilogue read by the author. Obstruction of justice, the specter of impeachment, sexism at work, shocking revelations: Jill Wine-Banks takes us inside her trial by fire as a Watergate prosecutor. It was a time, much like today, when Americans feared for the future of their democracy, and women stood up for equal treatment. At the crossroads of the Watergate scandal and the women’s movement was a young lawyer named Jill Wine Volner (as she was then known), barely thirty years old and the only woman on the team that prosecuted the highest-ranking White House officials. Called “the mini-skirted lawyer” by the press, she fought to receive the respect accorded her male counterparts—and prevailed. In The Watergate Girl, Jill Wine-Banks opens a window on this troubled time in American history. It is impossible to read about the crimes of Richard Nixon and the people around him without drawing parallels to today’s headlines. The book is also the story of a young woman who sought to make her professional mark while trapped in a failing marriage, buffeted by sexist preconceptions, and harboring secrets of her own. Her house was burgled, her phones were tapped, and even her office garbage was rifled through. At once a cautionary tale and an inspiration for those who believe in the power of justice and the rule of law, The Watergate Girl is a revelation about our country, our politics, and who we are as a society. A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company

To Serve the Enemy: Informers, Collaborators, and the Laws of Armed Conflict Audiobook

To Serve the Enemy: Informers, Collaborators, and the Laws of Armed Conflict

Author: Shane Darcy Narrator: Roger Clark Release Date: January 2020

A constant yet oftentimes concealed practice in war has been the use of informers and collaborators by parties to an armed conflict. Despite the prevalence of such activity, and the serious and at times fatal consequences that befall those who collaborate with an enemy, international law applicable in times of armed conflict does not squarely address the phenomenon. The recruitment, use, and treatment of informers and other collaborators is addressed only partially and at times indirectly by international humanitarian law. In this book, Shane Darcy examines the development and application of the relevant rules and principles of the laws of armed conflict in relation to collaboration. With a primary focus on international humanitarian law as may be applicable to various forms of collaboration, the book also offers an assessment of the relevance of human rights and considers how the phenomenon of collaboration has been addressed post-conflict.

The Affirmative Action Puzzle: A Living History from Reconstruction to Today Audiobook

The Affirmative Action Puzzle: A Living History from Reconstruction to Today

Author: Melvin I. Urofsky Narrator: Dan Woren Release Date: January 2020

A rich, multifaceted history of affirmative action from the Civil Rights Act of 1866 through today's tumultuous times   From acclaimed legal historian, author of a biography of Louis Brandeis ("Remarkable" -Anthony Lewis, The New York Review of Books, "Definitive"-Jeffrey Rosen, The New Republic) and Dissent and the Supreme Court ("Riveting"-Dahlia Lithwick, The New York Times Book Review), a history of affirmative action from its beginning with the Civil Rights Act of 1866 to the first use of the term in 1935 with the enactment of the National Labor Relations Act (the Wagner Act) to 1961 and John F. Kennedy's Executive Order 10925, mandating that federal contractors take "affirmative action" to ensure that there be no discrimination by "race, creed, color, or national origin" down to today's American society.  Melvin Urofsky explores affirmative action in relation to sex, gender, and education and shows that nearly every public university in the country has at one time or another instituted some form of affirmative action plan--some successful, others not.     Urofsky traces the evolution of affirmative action through labor and the struggle for racial equality, writing of World War I and the exodus that began when some six mil­lion African Americans moved northward between 1910 and 1960, one of the greatest internal migrations in the country's history.     He describes how Harry Truman, after becoming president in 1945, fought for Roosevelt's Fair Employment Practice Act and, surprising everyone, appointed a distinguished panel to serve as the President's Commission on Civil Rights, as well as appointing the first black judge on a federal appeals court in 1948 and, by executive order later that year, ordering full racial integration in the armed forces.     In this important, ambitious, far-reaching book, Urofsky writes about the affirmative action cases decided by the Supreme Court: cases that either upheld or struck down particular plans that affected both governmental and private entities. We come to fully understand the societal impact of affirmative action: how and why it has helped, and inflamed, people of all walks of life; how it has evolved; and how, and why, it is still needed.

The Prime Ministers with Nick Robinson: The Complete BBC Radio 4 Series 1-2 Audiobook

The Prime Ministers with Nick Robinson: The Complete BBC Radio 4 Series 1-2

Author: Nick Robinson Narrator: Nick Robinson Release Date: December 2019

In the Complete Series 1 and 2 of this fascinating and absorbing Radio 4 series, the BBC's Nick Robinson explores how Prime Ministers have used their power and responded to the great challenges of their time. In the first series he explores the premiership of Sir Robert Walpole; the first and longest-serving prime minister; Lord North; remembered as the prime minister who lost America; Sir Robert Peel; who put national interest before party; Lord Palmerston; who cultivated a cavalier image and dominated mid-Victorian politics; Benjamin Disraeli turned his skills as a novelist to politics and became Britain's first Jewish-born prime minister; David Lloyd George, Welsh radical who set up the early welfare state, became a presidential PM in the First World War and split the Liberal party; and Stanley Baldwin, the first prime minister to master radio broadcasting, his notion of Englishness shaped inter-war Britain.Clement Attlee, who lacked any charisma, but created the modern welfare state and managed the big political beasts in his Cabinet. In the second series he takes a look at William Pitt the Younger, who became Prime Minister aged only 24 and held the post for almost 19 years in total; Earl Grey, who passed the Great Reform Act and abolished slavery in the British Empire; William Gladstone was our oldest ever premier and finally left Downing Street for the last time aged 84.Herbert Asquith, who had the longest uninterrupted spell in office among twentieth century prime ministers until Margaret Thatcher; Ramsay MacDonald, who became the first Labour Prime Minister in 1924, but seven years later came to be seen as a traitor by his party; Harold Macmillan took over from Eden after Britain's humiliation in the Suez crisis, and whose upbeat approach earned him the nickname of 'Supermac'; Harold Wilson captured the mood for change in the 1960s, but his two terms at Number 10 were increasingly dominated by Britain's economic problems; and Edward Heath, who took Britain into the EEC (now the European Union) in 1973, which still divides opinion.

Drugs, Money, and Secret Handshakes: The Unstoppable Growth of Prescription Drug Prices Audiobook

Drugs, Money, and Secret Handshakes: The Unstoppable Growth of Prescription Drug Prices

Author: Robin Feldman Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: November 2019

In the warped world of prescription drug pricing, generic drugs can cost more than branded ones, old drugs can be relaunched at astronomical prices, and low-cost options are shut out of the market. In Drugs, Money and Secret Handshakes, Robin Feldman shines a light into the dark corners of the pharmaceutical industry to expose a web of shadowy deals in which higher-priced drugs receive favorable treatment and patients are channeled toward the most expensive medicines. At the center of this web are the highly secretive middle players who establish coverage levels for patients and negotiate with drug companies. By offering lucrative payments to these middle players (as well as to doctors and hospitals), drug companies ensure that inexpensive drugs never gain traction. This system of perverse incentives has delivered the kind of exorbitant drug prices-and profits-that everyone loves except for those who pay the bills.

The End of Roe v. Wade: Inside the Right's Plan to Destroy Legal Abortion Audiobook

The End of Roe v. Wade: Inside the Right's Plan to Destroy Legal Abortion

Author: Jessica Mason Pieklo, Robin Marty Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: November 2019

In the past decade, right-wing efforts to end legal abortion in the United States have reached a fever pitch, with anti-abortion legislation being introduced in several 'red'-and even some 'purple'-states. This war on abortion has had a chilling effect on women's reproductive health, making abortion accessible in name only in multiple parts of the country due to a lack of clinics, high cost, extensive waiting periods, and other issues. And if Roe v. Wade is overturned, which is now quite possible with a conservative Supreme Court, half of the states in the US will likely make abortion completely illegal within their borders. The End of Roe v. Wade examines the systematic destruction of legal abortion on a state by state basis, as well as detailing the Trump administration's unprecedented efforts to end access to abortion and contraception on a federal level. This timely and urgent book also offers a harrowing glimpse into what a post-Roe America will look like, previewing the next major battle over abortion rights-pitting those who chose to end their pregnancies outside of the legal medical system against those who will prosecute them.

Banned: Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump Audiobook

Banned: Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump

Author: Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia Narrator: Siiri Scott Release Date: November 2019

Within days of taking office, President Donald J. Trump published or announced changes to immigration law and policy. Banned examines the tool of discretion, or the choice a government has to protect, detain, or deport immigrants, and describes how the Trump administration has wielded this tool in creating and executing its immigration policy. Banned combines personal interviews, immigration law, policy analysis, and case studies to answer the following questions: (1) what does immigration enforcement and discretion look like in the time of Trump? (2) who is affected by changes to immigration enforcement and discretion?; (3) how have individuals and families affected by immigration enforcement under President Trump changed their own perceptions about the future?; and (4) how do those informed about immigration enforcement and discretion describe the current state of affairs and perceive the future? The story of immigration and the role immigrants play in the United States is significant. The government has the tools to treat those seeking admission, refuge, or opportunity in the United States humanely. Banned offers a passionate reminder of the responsibility we all have to protect America's identity as a nation of immigrants.
