DEALING WITH THE DEVIL breaks through thirty years of silence to tell the dark side of the Witness Protection Program story. Former U.S. Marshals and FBI Agents detail the difficulties of administering a program that has been hampered from the very beginning by understaffing and low expectations (the government projected that 25 people a year would enter Witness Protection, but 647 people signed up in 1974 alone!). And we'll get an inside view of life in the Program from four former criminals who have since abandoned its protection
Jesse Owens( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most famous athlete of his time, his stunning triumph at the 1936 Olympic Games captivated the world even as it infuriated the Nazis. Despite the racial slurs he endured, Jesse Owens' grace and athleticism rallied crowds across the globe. But when the four-time Olympic gold medalist returned home, he could not even ride in the front of a bus. The story of the 22-year-old son of a sharecropper who triumphed over adversity to become a hero and world champion, Jesse Owens is also about the elusive, fleeting quality of fame and the way Americans idolize athletes when they suit our purpose, and forget them once they don't
