In "Wildlife Wars," Terry Grosz serves up fascinating stories-alternately hair-raising, hilarious, and heart-wrenching-from his 30-year struggle to protect wildlife in America. A natural storyteller, Grosz writes about the remarkable characters he met-on both sides of the law-as he matched wits with elk poachers, salmon snaggers, commercial-market duck hunters, and a host of other law-breakers. Best of all, though, these stories are so remarkably entertaining you won't want to put them down. Wildlife Wars is the winner of the 2000 National Outdoor Book Award, Nature and the Environment Category.

In A Sword for Mother Nature Terry Grosz tells tales from his years as a game warden for the State of California, complementing the stories from his first book, Wildlife Wars. The early years of his career were a crucial time of intense on-the-job training. Grosz writes of apparently simple cases turned deadly; he describes his days as an over-eager young game warden who foolishly believed in his own immortality, and the trouble he made for himself because of it.

Criminology has experienced tremendous growth over the last few decades, evident, in part, by the widespread popularity and increased enrollment in criminology and criminal justice departments at the undergraduate and graduate levels across the U.S. and internationally. Evolutionary paradigmatic shift has accompanied this surge in definitional, disciplinary and pragmatic terms. Though long identified as a leading sociological specialty area, criminology has emerged as a stand-alone discipline in its own right, one that continues to grow and is clearly here to stay. Criminology, today, remains inherently theoretical but is also far more applied in focus and thus more connected to the academic and practitioner concerns of criminal justice and related professional service fields. Contemporary criminology is also increasingly interdisciplinary and thus features a broad variety of ideological orientations to and perspectives on the causes, effects and responses to crime. 21st Century Criminology: A Reference Handbook provides straightforward and definitive overviews of 100 key topics comprising traditional criminology and its modern outgrowths. The individual chapters have been designed to serve as a "first-look" reference source for most criminological inquires. Both connected to the sociological origins of criminology (i.e., theory and research methods) and the justice systems' response to crime and related social problems, as well as coverage of major crime types, this two-volume set offers a comprehensive overview of the current state of criminology. From student term papers and masters theses to researchers commencing literature reviews, 21st Century Criminology is a ready source from which to quickly access authoritative knowledge on a range of key issues and topics central to contemporary criminology. This two-volume set in the SAGE 21st Century Reference Series is intended to provide undergraduate majors with an authoritative reference source that will serve their research needs with more detailed information than encyclopedia entries but not so much jargon, detail, or density as a journal article or research handbook chapter. 100 entries or "mini-chapters" highlight the most important topics, issues, questions, and debates any student obtaining a degree in this field ought to have mastered for effectiveness in the 21st century. Curricular-driven, chapters provide students with initial footholds on topics of interest in researching term papers, in preparing for GREs, in consulting to determine directions to take in pursuing a senior thesis, graduate degree, career, etc. Comprehensive in coverage, major sections include The Discipline of Criminology, Correlates of Crime, Theories of Crime & Justice, Measurement & Research, Types of Crime, and Crime & the Justice System. The contributor group is comprised of well-known figures and emerging young scholars who provide authoritative overviews coupled with insightful discussion that will quickly familiarize researchers, students, and general readers alike with fundamental and detailed information for each topic. Uniform chapter structure makes it easy for students to locate key information, with most chapters following a format of Introduction, Theory, Methods, Applications, Comparison, Future Directions, Summary, Bibliography & Suggestions for Further Reading, and Cross References. Availability in print and electronic formats provides students with convenient, easy access wherever they may be.

Pip Beverly left school in England when he was fourteen and went with his family to Kenya in 1924. ‘Under our Double Terais’ is his account of the struggles to make a living on a coffee farm surrounded by large wild animals at Nyeri, 100 miles to the north of Nairobi. His sense of humour is evident in the descriptions of the colourful characters he met and his own adventures and attempts to support himself and his family as a professional hunter before becoming, later in life, a dedicated animal conservationist. The formation of the Kenya Regiment, farming near Nakuru in the Rift Valley after the war, the horrors of the Mau Mau movement and the repercussions of independence are littered with witty anecdotes told by a man, described in the foreword to the book, as having a most delightful sense of the ridiculous. Net proceeds from the sale of this eBook will be donated to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust an organisation established in memory of the founder Warden of Tsavo East National Park and dedicated to the protection and preservation of endangered species in Kenya - particularly elephants and black rhinos. Comments from people who read the manuscript prior to publishing as eBook: A fortune in life ***** I have the great good fortune of being born in Kenya and any account of those early days brings back wonderful memories which Pip Beverly has done very amusingly in ‘Under Our Double Terais’. He has recounted with perception the sad and the funny, the grim and the beautiful and put his own stamp on experiences of people, beasts and surroundings which made up one man’s life in those days of a dearth in material wealth but a fortune in ‘life’. John Cheshire, NSW Australia Fascinating and accurate ***** This memoir is a very readable account of the hard life of the Kenya settlers between the two World Wars. I thought the descriptions of the countryside and wild life were remarkably good. My father and his brother were similar settlers and I found the book to be both fascinating and accurate, the stories of the people and government officials, the roads, shops, hotels and so on are exactly as they were. The book is a true ‘chronicle-history’ of the times as told by a settler not endowed with wealth or a title. It is a well written book that anyone who has the slightest interest in or knowledge of Africa would really enjoy. H.M. Pringle, NSW Australia
