Tyrannosaurus Sue : the extraordinary saga of the largest, most fought over T. rex ever found by Steve Fiffer( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 2,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 65 million years ago in what is now Cheyenne River Sioux territory in South Dakota, a Tyrannosaurus rex matriarch locked in a ferocious battle fell mortally wounded. In 1990, her skeleton was found, virtually complete, in what many call the most spectacular dinosaur fossil discovery to date. And then another battle began--a free-for-all involving commercial dinosaur hunters, gun-toting law officers, an ambitious federal prosecutor, a Native American tribe, jealous academics, an enterprising auction house, major museums, and corporate giants. At stake: not just Sue's wealth of scientific riches, but her grant-drawing power and vast commercial potential as well. Sue is not just another dinosaur, and this is not just another dinosaur book. It is an introduction to the centuries-old history of commercial fossil hunting, a legal thriller, and a provocative look at academic versus commercial science and the chase for the money that fuels both.--From publisher description

Desert diplomat : inside Saudi Arabia following 9/11 by Robert W Jordan( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring of 2001, George W. Bush selected Dallas attorney Robert W. Jordan as the ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Jordan's nomination sped through Congress in the wake of the terrorist attacks on 9/11, and he was at his post by early October, though with no prior diplomatic experience, as Saudi Arabia mandates that the U.S. Ambassador be a political appointee with the ear of the president. Hence Jordan had to learn on the job how to run an embassy, deal with a foreign culture, and protect U.S. interests, all following the most significant terrorist attacks on the United States in history

Jimmie Lee & James : two lives, two deaths, and the movement that changed America by Steve Fiffer( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bloody Sunday"--March 7, 1965--was a pivotal moment in the civil rights struggle. Days earlier, during the crackdown on another protest in nearby Marion, a state trooper, claiming self-defense, shot Jimmie Lee Jackson, a 26-year-old unarmed deacon and civil rights protester. Jackson's subsequent death spurred local civil rights leaders to make the march to Montgomery; when that day also ended in violence, the call went out to activists across the nation to join in the next attempt. One of the many who came down was a minister from Boston named James Reeb. Shortly after his arrival, he was attacked in the street by racist vigilantes, eventually dying of his injuries. Lyndon Johnson evoked Reeb's memory when he brought his voting rights legislation to Congress, and the national outcry over the brutal killings ensured its passage
