The killer strain : anthrax and a government exposed by Marilyn W Thompson( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lethal germ is unleashed in the U.S. mail. A chain of letters spreads terror from Florida to Washington, D.C., from New York to Connecticut, from the halls of Congress to the assembly lines of the U.S. Postal Service. Five people die, and ten thousand more line up for antibiotics to protect against exposure. The government, already outsmarted by the terrorist hijackers of 9/11, leaves its workers vulnerable and a diabolical killer on the loose. Based on hundreds of hours of interviews and a review of thousands of pages of government documents, The Killer Strain is the definitive account of the year in which bioterrorism became a reality in the United States. Revealing the little-known victims and unsung heroes in the anthrax debacle, investigative reporter Marilyn Thompson also examines the FBI's slow-paced investigation of the crimes and the unprecedented scientific challenges posed by the case. The Killer Strain, more than just a thrilling read, is also a clarion wake-up call. It shows how billions of dollars and a decade of elaborate bioterror dress rehearsals meant nothing in the face of a real attack -- and how we may still be at risk
Strom : the complicated personal and political life of Strom Thurmond by Jack Bass( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First elected to public office in 1929, Strom Thurmond was a pivotal figure in the nation's politics for more than seven decades, particularly when it came to issues of race: the Dixiecrat presidential candidate in 1948, originator of the 1956 "Southern Manifesto" against the Brown vs. Board of Education ruling, holder of the record for a Senate filibuster for his opposition to the 1957 Civil Rights Bill. Yet as a young man Thurmond had secretly fathered a daughter with the family's black maid, and quietly supported her through college and beyond. Journalists Bass and Thompson both covered him for years and broke the big stories. In this book, they tell us a great deal about power and politics in our nation and race's twisted roots in the 20th century South.--From publisher description
