Somebody's daughter : the hidden story of America's prostituted children and the battle to save them by Julian Sher( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people believe sex trafficking in the United States involves young women from foreign lands, but the vast majority of teens caught in the sex trade are American girls -- the runaways and throwaways few people care about. Hundreds of thousands of prostituted children walk the Las Vegas Strip, the casinos of Atlantic City, the truck stops on interstates, and the street corners of our cities. The author takes the reader behind the scenes to expose one of the most underreported crimes: the trafficking of American girls on American streets. He meets the teenagers who are fighting to survive, a new breed of cops who are trying to rescue them, and the activists battling to protect our country's most forsaken children. A girl from New Jersey is arrested in Las Vegas and, at great risk to her own life, helps a special FBI squad bring down a million-dollar pimping empire. An abused teenager in Texas has the courage to take the stand in a grueling trial that sends her pimp away for seventy-five years. Survivors of the sex trade in New York, Phoenix, and Minneapolis set up shelters and rescue centers that offer young girls a chance to break free from the streets

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The larger-than-life Russian leader has held power -- with one title or another -- for 15 years, and is set to reign for at least a decade more. Yet Putin remains inscrutable. With only a smattering of biographical details released to the public and his sometimes puzzling public appearances, scholars -- and even many world leaders -- still struggle to understand the man at the helm of the Kremlin. To glean a clearer picture, FRONTLINE took a closer look at some of the most identifiable aspects of Putin's public persona

One child at a time : inside the fight to rescue children from online predators by Julian Sher( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a renowned investigative reporter, the true story behind a horrifying Internet abuse epidemic-and the heroes who are out to stop it. The Internet has helped make child abuse terrifyingly common-it is the new face of crime in the 21st century. There are tens, probably hundreds of thousands of children whose sexual abuse has been electronically recorded and distributed on the Internet. As Julian Sher reveals, the men perpetrating these crimes include lawyers, priests, doctors and politicians. They pick their victims from the streets of Bangkok to Boy Scout troops in England, while the police-from a crack image analyst with the Toronto police to an FBI agent who poses as a 13-year-old girl online-work desperately to nab the predators. One Child at a Time goes behind the headlines to show how law officers are fighting back against this tide of abuse, from daring rescues in homes to the seizures of millions of dollars in the offshore bank accounts of the porn merchants. In riveting detail, Julian Sher shows how clue by clue, and image by image, investigators are using cutting edge tools, turning the technology of the Internet against the perpetrators as they race to find and rescue the victims-children who otherwise have no voice. This important book explores the ramifications of a worldwide struggle, from the need for updated legal powers to the unexpected effects the Internet has had on our social fabric. It also includes a full list of resources for concerned parents. Though sometimes harrowing, One Child at a Time is also inspiring-and never less than absolutely relevant
Battle for the arctic( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arctic is under siege as never before. The Russians send submarines deep below the North Pole. The Americans dispatch surveillance planes to monitor new threats in the north. And Canada is now forced to scramble to defend territories it has ignored for too long. Global warming is turning the Far North into a resource hotspot. The fabled Northwest Passage could become a new super highway for cargo and cruise ships. And beneath the rapidly melting ice lies much of the world's undiscovered oil and gas reserves. Canadian scientists are now joining the soldiers on the front lines of this new frontier, as they race to chart Canada's Arctic claims under the looming deadline of an international treaty. The Battle for the Arctic takes us from the far reaches of the North Pole to the waters of Alaska for a look into a struggle for sovereignty that could change the very face of Canada

Afghanistan : [hidden treasures from the National Museum, Kabul] by James A Helis( Visual )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Canada the stakes are unprecedented. More than a billion dollars in aid has been promised to Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime. And with close to 100 Canadian soldiers killed, the military mission in the war-torn country has exacted a considerable human toll. As the mammoth task of rebuilding Afghanistan continues, it's time to address a contentious question: is all of this effort making a difference to the lives of Afghans? Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear takes viewers into the heart of a country that has been the subject of such intense debate and asks whether or not the lives of ordinary citizens are improving. In order to gain unique access to Afghans living in remote and particularly dangerous areas, the CBC engaged local journalists and camera crews. Through a series of intensely personal stories delving into a range of topics, the program examines the big issues: is the country descending into further instability? Or is real progress being made?

He casts a long shadow over the globe. Russian leader Vladimir Putin has outlasted three American presidents and is on track to stay in power until 2024. His incursions in Georgia, the Crimea and Ukraine have rattled the West, while his crackdowns inside Russia have riled his democratic opponents. But a joint investigation by The Fifth Estate and PBS' Frontline reveals an even darker side to one of the most powerful leaders in the world: Allegations of criminal activity dating as far back as his early days as a top official in St. Petersburg; ties to organized crime and money-laundering activities; and a secret personal fortune said to be in the billions

Love, hate & propaganda( Visual )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love, Hate and Propaganda is a series that explores the psychology of war. Why did some enthusiastically follow while others bravely resisted? How could a young shop owner in Berlin come to believe that murdering civilians was a necessary part of asserting German pride? Why did a teenage girl in Japan believe her country had a divine mission to 'civilize' all of Asia at the barrel of a gun? Why did Hollywood believe it was necessary to demonize the Japanese in order to persuade Americans to fight? And, in the darkest days of WWII, how did so many manage to keep faith and fight evil when all seemed hopeless?

Angels of death : inside the bikers' empire of crime by William Marsden( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The award-winning authors of The Road to Hell: How the Biker Gangs Are Conquering Canada bring us a definitive, up-to-the-minute account of the Hells Angels and the international biker network. Marsden and Sher explain how the expansion of America's foremost motorcycle gang has allowed this once ragtag group of rebels, outcasts and felons to become one of the world's most sophisticated criminal organizations. While the media has continued to toast the Hells Angels California leader, Sonny Barger, as an American legend, the facts tell another story - they are America's major crime export. With an estimated 2,500 full-patch members in 25 countries, the Hells Angels have inspired a global subculture of biker gangs that are among the most feared and violent underworld players. Angels of Death takes readers to Arizona, inside the biggest American police undercover operation to infiltrate the bikers; to British Columbia where wealthy bikers dominate the organized crime pyramid; to Australia where the "bikies" shoot it out with police; to Curacao where terrorist organizations funnel drugs to Dutch bikers; and to the streets of Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki where a murderous biker war saw rocket attacks and bombs turn Scandinavia into a war zone. For the first time, police officers who have infiltrated biker gangs tell their secrets - revealing the challenges, fears and horrors they've discovered going undercover. Sher and Marsden take the reader behind the latest headlines to tell the story of how the Hells Angels became so powerful, and how the police - with only a few successes - have tried to stop them. Excerpt from Angels of Death: Three murderous evenings, three different continents, three faces of the Angels of death: the killing of innocents, the killing of fellow bikers, and the killing of cops. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of lives ruined, brains fried, bodies withered by the methamphetamines, cocaine and other drugs pushed by the bikers. And yet while the body count kept mounting, Sonny Barger, the Californian patriarch and international leader of the Hells Angels, was being feted by the international media as he promoted his latest bestselling book. Even the usually thoughtful British press fell for the rebel Yankee. The Times called him, "affable, big-hearted, warm." The Independent labelled him an "American legend." And in many ways he is.
