0684806991 / 9780684806990 Good.  
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1996 Simon & Schuster. SIGNED BY AUTHOR to left of title page. Clean and unmarked; average wear. Jacket is rubbed. 444pp, Index, Notes, Bibliography. Language: English. NOTE: Large size; cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope. '[Burnham] builds a solid case for the reform of the department's structure and of the political considerations governing its appointments and activities. Readers will be fascinated by his revelations of abuse in the service of administrations of both political parties. However, it is the author's application of modern methods of statistical analysis to quantify the department's operation that transform this book from expose to serious study. Above the Law is a balanced, convincing, and well-documented depiction of the Justice Department as an agency in drastic need of oversight and redefinition....--Suzanne Pierce Dyer, Library Journal, 1996.

And Weapons for All , Hartung, William D.
6 And Weapons for All  Hartung, William D.
0060190140 / 9780060190149 Good.  
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1994. Has REMAINDER MARK at bottom page edge. Average wear to jacket. Text clean and unmarked; pages bright; binding tight. 341 pages; Index; Notes. Language: English. 'Hartung, a senior fellow at the World Policy Institute in Manhattan, grapples with a vital question: how did the world's leading democracy become the world's leading arms merchant? He contends that President Nixon's arms-sales policy, President Reagan's support of anti-communist freedom fighters and President Bush's military assistance to Saddam Hussein all contributed to a grotesque boomerang effect in which recent U.S. battlefield opponents--Panama, Iraq, Somalia--have been armed with U.S. military technology. Hartung examines what he calls the permanent arms-supply network (defense contractors, former military and intelligence operatives, foreign brokers and middlemen and influential government officials) and suggests that their collective influence over U.S. foreign policy may exceed that of Congress. There is an urgent need, he warns, to break America's economic dependence on weapons exports, to cease arming potential adversaries and to control arms trafficking that spreads violence and disorder around the globe. A coherent, convincing exposition of a complex and timely subject.'--Publishers Weekly, 1994.

8 Arm in Arm: The Political Economy of the Global Arms Trade  Keller, William W.
0465026672 / 9780465026678 Very Good.  
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1995 Basic Books. REMAINDER MARK at bottom page edge. Very clean; never read. Light-to-average wear to jacket. 222pp, Index, Notes. Language: English. 'Keller, senior analyst and project director for Congress's Office of Technology Assessment, argues that superpower confrontation has given way to sporadic militarism: the rise, that is, of regional powers able to threaten local balances of power by virtue of sophisticated weapon systems. Instead of being distributed as part of coherent national strategies, this hardware is now being sold like any other product. Arms firms of different nations cooperate in transferring militarily useful technology. Many governments seek to create jobs and balance budgets by hawking their arsenals on the open market. The U.S., Keller demonstrates, has become a major participant in this process. His incisive and accessible account concludes that neither the institutions nor the insights to resolve the crisis of arms proliferation currently exist.'--Publishers Weekly.

0415904218 / 9780415904216 Good.  
Paperback. Softcover 1991 Routledge. Clean and unmarked; NOTICEABLE AVERAGE WEAR. 247pp, Index, Notes, Bibliography. Language: English. 'The authors, affiliated with the Wagner Institute of CUNY, seek to isolate and interpret the underlying factors that led to the narrow victory of David Dinkins in the 1989 mayoralty race in New York City; he is the first African American to win that prize. Their research findings, based on voter polling, show that while race may seem the obvious explanation, Dinkins's 47,000-vote victory margin was also based on the support he got from white liberals, Latinos, and even a significant number of white, ethnic Catholics. They find evidence of the reemergence of New York's historic alliance between liberal whites, blacks, and Hispanics, but this time led by blacks. The technical appendixes on polling techniques are useful for research on voter behavior. Suitable for academic urban affairs collections.'--Harry Frumerman, Library Journal, 1991.
