"Without Mercy reads like a John Grisham thriller."--David R. Dow, author of The Autobiography of an Execution On December 9, 1938, the state of Georgia executed six black men in eighty-one minutes in Tattnall Prison's electric chair. The executions were a record for the state that still stands today. The new prison, built with funds from FDR's New Deal, as well as the fact that the men were tried and executed rather than lynched were thought to be a sign of progress. They were anything but. While those men were arrested, convicted, sentenced, and executed in as little as six weeks---E.D. Rivers, the governor of the state, oversaw a pardon racket for white killers and criminals, allowed the Ku Klux Klan to infiltrate his administration, and bankrupted the state. Race and wealth were all that determined whether or not a man lived or died. There was no progress. There was no justice. David Beasley's Without Mercy is the harrowing true story of the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the violent death throes of the Klan, but most of all it is the story of the stunning injustice of these executions and how they have seared distrust of the legal system into the consciousness of the Deep South, and it is a story that will forever be a testament to the death penalty's appalling inequality that continues to plague our nation
A life in red : a story of forbidden love, the Great Depression, and the communist fight for a Black nation in the deep South by David Beasley( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The true story of star-crossed lovers Herbert Newton, a black communist seeking the end of an oppressive America, and Jane Newton, the white daughter of a wealthy American Legion commander, and their part in the Depression-Era, communist fight for a black sovereign nation. Readers will be introduced to a largely ignored piece of civil rights history that unfolded a quarter century before the mass protests that began in the 1950s. The Newtons' love story underscores the fraught times of a segregated and flailing country, while David Beasley's account of the movement's history creates a full and layered backdrop. Including the attempt to unionize Southern workers, the trial of the Atlanta Six, and other major turning points, the book explores communists' endeavor to utilize the black community's anger and oppression to fuel a deflated movement on American soil. Readers will experience a detailed picture of the friendship between the Newtons and Richard Wright, who wrote Native Son while living with the couple and struggling to find an identity outside of the communist party in New York City. In addition, A Life in Red covers the sanity trials Jane Newton underwent simply for being white, promoting communism, and marrying a black man; delves into The Scottsboro Trial as a crucial foundation for the communist movement's relationship with the African American community; and describes the intimate lives of both black and white communist members of the era trained in the United States and Russia"--Provided by publisher
Dentro de Coca-Cola : cómo convertí coca-Cola en la marca más popular del mundo by Neville Isdell( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neville Isdell ha sido un protagonista clave en Coca-Cola durante más de 30 años. En 2009 se retiró como consejero delegado de la compañía después de haber revitalizado la deteriorada imagen de la marca de bebidas sin alcohol más importante del mundo. Este primer libro de un alto ejecutivo de Coca-Cola relata una extraordinaria historia personal y profesional repleta de acontecimientos reveladores y concluyentes. Isdell puso de manifiesto su iniciativa y responsabilidad empresarial cuando medió con cautela en las relaciones públicas internacionales de la compañía, abrió nuevos mercados y depositó su confianza en Muhtar Kent, el actual director general turcoamericano. Y todo lo consiguió actuando desde la ética, valor aplicable a cualquier tipo de compañía, sin que por ello tuviera que renunciar al éxito. En definitiva esta obra te puede ayudar de manera efectiva en la toma de decisiones a todo aquel que, citando el conocido eslogan de Coca-Cola, se tome "la pausa que refresca", es decir, el tiempo necesario para reflexionar
