In Search of Lost Frogs

In Search of Lost Frogs

Author: Robin Moore Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/09/2014

On August 9, 2010, 33 teams from 21 countries were dispatched to search for the Lost Frogs identified by Conservation International. On their list were a host of species including, in the top ten most wanted, the Rio Pescado Stubfoot Toad, found only in Ecuador - which was to prove a triumphant rediscovery. Several months, a number of key rediscoveries - such as the Elegant Tropical Frog, last seen in 1937 and the Chalazodes Bubble-nest Frog - last seen in 1874 and two new species later, the Search for Lost Frogs had generated more than 650 news articles in 20 countries and over a billion potential viewers. Author Robin Moore was responsible for spearheading the Search for Lost Frogs and coordinating the teams. He also co-led two expeditions to Colombia and Haiti. In Colombia in search of the Mesopotamia Beaked Toad, the steamy jungles of the Choco yielded not the desired species but a brand new one - the Mr. Burns Toad, so-called because of an uncanny resemblance to the Simpsons' character; the species was selected as one of Time magazine's top ten new species of 2010. In Haiti the team found six frogs last seen 20 years before, including the Ventriloqual Frog, named for its ability to throw its voice. This fascinating new book tells the story of the expedition - its highs and lows, discoveries and failures and the campaign's ongoing work. Despite the campaign, one third of the world's amphibians remain threatened with extinction. Most of the species searched for were not found. But those that were provide a glimmer of hope. Understanding why these species have survived when many others have not should help us understand what makes these species different. In Search of Lost Frogs is a story of perseverance, disappointment, rediscovery, resilience, but ultimately of hope, written with passion and illustrated with the author's superb photographs.

Managing Persistent and Serious Offenders in the Community

Managing Persistent and Serious Offenders in the Community

Author: Robin Moore Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/06/2017

Over the last few years intensive community programmes for both young and adult offenders have become established in the UK as an important new component of penal policy - the ISSP (Intensive Supervision and Surveillance Programme) for persistent and serious young offenders, and the ICCP (Intensive Control and Change Programme) for adult offenders. Expectations of these programmes have been high, but the evidence relating to their effectiveness is mixed, and a number of critical concerns have emerged. This book seeks to address these issues, providing a timely review of the current literature, and presents findings of a recent national evaluation of ISSP. Emerging lessons for future penal policy are presented, and set within a wider theoretical context. The book concludes by stressing the need for greater realism and further evidential support if such programmes are to gain long-term credibility, and also to consider the appropriateness of differing forms of targeting as well as the emphasis placed on the various methods of surveillance.

The Green Berets The Amazing Story of the U.S. Army's Elite Special Forces Unit

Author: Robin Moore, Thomas R. Csrnko Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/02/2016

In Vietnam Robin Moore became on the of the first true embedded journalists, training and fighting alongside America's most elite fighters. Though fictionalized, The Green Berets exposed the American public to the horrors of the ground war in Vietnam, and gave the men of the Green Berets the recognition they deserved. Here is the tale of the courageous South Vietnamese girl posing as an anti-American Communist to capture the Viet Cong officer who murdered her family. Here is the graft and double-dealing of South Vietnamese officers undercutting America's war effort. More importantly, here are America's soldiers showing unimaginable bravery in the face of a determined and deadly enemy. With a foreword by Major General Thomas R. Csrnko reflecting on the history and future of this elite fighting unit, The Green Berets stands as an enduring classic. One of the most exciting war books. --London Sunday Telegraph Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction--novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.

The French Connection

The French Connection

Author: Robin Moore Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2005

'Popeye here. I am being blocked while he takes off in the other car. This is a deliberate act of obstruction! If anybody reads me - HIT that son of a bitch!' The French Connection is the heart-stopping account of an extraordinary true story. One night two New York narcotics detectives, 'Popeye' Egan and 'Cloudy' Grosso, are at the Copacabana Club when they come across a boisterous party. The host is a young pockmarked man named Patsy Fuca, and he behaves like a head gangster. When he pays his bill from a huge wad of money the detectives instinctively decide to tail him, but they are baffled to discover that Patsy is the owner of a lowly newsstand. It seems so odd that Popeye and Cloudy start to investigate, unaware that they are embarking on an eighteen-month odyssey of intrigue and conspiracy that will take them from plush tree-lined suburbs and dark Brooklyn tenements to Paris, Marseilles and Palermo, and that they will break the world's largest heroin network.
