William Logan has been a thorn in the side of American poetry for more than three decades. Though he has been called the "most hated man in American poetry," his witty and articulate reviews have reminded us how muscular good reviewing can be. These new essays and reviews take poetry at its word, often finding in its hardest cases the greatest reasons for hope. Logan begins with a devastating polemic against the wish to have critics announce their aesthetics every time they begin a review. "The Unbearable Rightness of Criticism" is a plea to read those critics who got it wrong when they reviewed Lyrical Ballads or Leaves of Grass or The Waste Land. Sometimes, he argues, such critics saw exactly what these books were—they saw the poems plain yet often did not see that they were poems. In such wrongheaded criticism, readers can recover the ground broken by such groundbreaking books. Logan looks again at the poetry of Wallace Stevens, Frank O'Hara, and Philip Larkin; at the letters of T. S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, and Robert Lowell; and at new books by Louise Glück and Seamus Heaney. Always eager to overturn settled judgments, Logan argues that World War II poets were in the end better than the much-lauded poets of World War I. He revisits the secretly revised edition of Robert Frost's notebooks, showing that the terrible errors ruining the first edition still exist. The most remarkable essay is "Elizabeth Bishop at Summer Camp," which prints for the first time her early adolescent verse along with the intimate letters written to the first girl she loved.

Over the course of a decade, a stream of credible scientific reports from various government agencies, congressionally-mandated commissions and federal research organizations have warned of the grave vulnerability of our nation's most important asset: the electric power grid. For millions of us, life in 21st Century America would be all but impossible without access to electricity. As this compendium of the government's own studies makes clear, the protracted unavailability of the power required for all of our critical infrastructures poses a truly existential threat to our country and its people—unless we take practical and relatively low-cost steps to prevent it.

You're a 32-year-old attorney. Five years ago, you had an affair with your boss's daughter. She was seventeen. Though you didn't go to prison, you work somewhere else now. Guilt-ridden, you've managed to put your life back together; then your old girlfriend, now a 23-year-old, dark-eyed beauty, shows up on your doorstep. She's got a gun and a wild tale about the penny-ante drug dealers who are after her. She needs sanctuary. Within days, she will need a lawyer to defend her on a murder charge, and her tales will have only gotten wilder. What will you do? If you're Alan Dougherty, you will take the case, betting everything on the character of the girl you once loved with reckless passion. You will win it all, the case and the girl, or you will lose everything. This time there may be no putting the pieces back together. Guilty Knowledge is a courtroom drama that has everything you expect from a legal crime novel: drug smuggling and money laundering, crime lords and criminal syndicates, and vigilante justice. Alan Dougherty is an idealistic young attorney who must find courage enough to face down the mob, brains enough to solve a brutal murder, and the ingenuity to best an arrogant young prosecutor. The pace and the plotting put it in the ranks of organized-crime fiction.

The Guilty Knowledge polygraph test (GKT) and a variation of the test, the Guilty Actions Test (GAT), were compared in a laboratory setting. 84 men who committed or witnessed a mock crime answered "No", repeated items, or remained silent in response to items on the GKT or GAT. A monetary reward was promised for appearing innocent on the test. An interaction with scores based on skin resistance showed that innocent witnesses tested on the GKT scored more in the guilt direction than subjects in any other groups. Subjects required to say "no" were more reactive to key items than subjects in the item repetition or silence groups. Thoracic respiration scores showed a difference between guilty and innocent subjects.

Gossip-columnist Rain Morgan is dispatched to the French Riviera to interview painter Sabine Jourdain, part of the coterie (and mistress) of the legendary octogenarian artist Marius Durance. Rain is accompanied by her lover Oliver, though their relationship is running far from smoothly, but neither of them suspects that the glamorous world of art dealers and their luxury yacht lifestyle in Antibes could be so firmly based on greed, pride and dubious loyalties. And then the dead body of Sabine Jourdain is hauled from the harbour.... When Guilty Knowledge was first published in 1986, Woman magazine acclaimed 'an outstanding new writer' and the Sunday Times noted that its 'Fine, confident brushwork catches every nuance of fraud and worse'.

Psychological theory and research have much to contribute to the knowledge and skill bases underlying effective policing. Much of the relevant information, however, is dispersed across a variety of different psychological and criminal justice/policing journals and seldom integrated for those applied psychologists interested in policing issues or for police policymakers/administrators and others working in the criminal justice area who are not familiar with the psychological literature. Designed to accommodate the needs of these different groups, this book addresses both operational policing issues and issues relevant to the improvement of organizational functioning by providing integrative reviews of psychological theory and research that deal with effective policing. It illustrates how the theory and research reviewed are relevant to specific policing practices. These include eyewitness testimony, conflict resolution, changing driver behavior, controlling criminal behavior, effective interviewing, and techniques of face reconstruction. The volume's readable style makes it accessible to a diverse audience including undergraduate and postgraduate students in forensic/organizational/applied psychology, criminal justice, and police science programs, and police administrators and policymakers. It will also interest psychologists whose primary focus includes policing and criminal justice issues. The book should draw attention to the often unrecognized and valuable contribution that mainstream psychology can make to the knowledge base underpinning a wide variety of policing practices.
