To sleep with the angels : the story of a fire by David Cowan( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If burying a child has a special poignancy, the tragedy at a Catholic elementary school in Chicago almost fifty years ago was an extraordinary moment of grief. One of the deadliest fires in American history, it took the lives of ninety-two children and three nuns at Our Lady of the Angels School, left many families physically and psychologically scarred for life, and destroyed a close-knit working-class neighborhood. This is the moving story of that fire and its consequences, written by two journalists who have been obsessed with the events of that terrible day in December 1958. It is a story of ordinary people caught up in a disaster that shocked the nation. In gripping detail, those who were there-children, teachers, firefighters-describe the fear, desperation, and panic that prevailed in and around the stricken school building on that cold Monday afternoon. But beyond the flames, the story of the fire at Our Lady of the Angels became an enigma whose mystery has deepened with time: its cause was never officially explained despite evidence that it had been intentionally set by a troubled student at the school

The police today by John Kuenster( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maybe for better, maybe for worse life for the average cop has become much less simple than in the old days, and author shows us just how much more complicated life has actually become for him. All in all it's a pretty tough job being a cop. Among other things he's got to be part priest, part sociologist, part lawyer, part arbitrator, part philosopher, and even part politician. At times he has to have the cunning and strength of a lion, while at other times he has to have the gentleness of the proverbial lamb. And while he must work with people who see him as an arm of facist oppression as well as with people who see him as a messiah, all he wants really is to be seen as a man doing, as best as he can, the very difficult job of being a cop in our society
