A collection of groundbreaking investigations by Wayne Barrett, the intrepid, muckraking Village Voice journalist who exposed corruption in New York City and beyond. With piercing moral clarity and exacting rigor, Wayne Barrett tracked political corruption in the pages of the Village Voice fact by fact, document by document for 40 years. The first to report on the scams and crooked deals that fueled the rise of Donald Trump in 1979, Barrett went on to expose the shady dealings of small-time slum lords and powerful New York City politicians alike, from Ed Koch to Rudy Giuliani to Michael Bloomberg. Without Compromise is the first anthology of Barrett's investigative work, accompanied by essays from colleagues and those he trained. In an age of lies, fog, and propaganda, when the profession of journalism is degraded by the White House and the industry is under financial threat, Barrett reminds us that facts, when clearly accumulated, are our best defense of democracy.

The author presents a study of the political leadership of the Southern states during the three decisive years immediately after the American Civil War. This era was crucial - it was a moment when the terms and shape of the post-war sectional settlement were being deliberated and determined. The process of reunification, and whether it would be carried out smoothly, depended on the policy pursued by the Federal government towards the leaders of the Confederacy, as well as on the Southerners' response to whatever course was adopted.--adapted from publisher's description.

Combining 24 years of research and insight from her columns in Communication Arts magazine, artist, educator, and writer Wendy Richmond challenges artists to investigate their work through multiple lenses in her newest book, Art Without Compromise*. Her commentaries, exercises, and wide-ranging references to contemporary thinkers will inspire artists to change the way they think about their creative landscape, from personal goals to cultural influences to technological realities. Her insights about major cultural figures, from Roland Barthes to Susan Sontag to Walker Evans, introduce their philosophies into the context of contemporary art making. Like a Malcolm Gladwell for artists, Richmond helps artists to look closely at what they see every day--in their own art making and in the world around them. In the process, she helps artists to develop an uncompromising commitment to finding and protecting their own unique process for making their strongest and most relevant art. This thought-provoking and inspirational book covers such topics as: developing a solid creative process through “Visual Reflection Notebooks” and “Bring Play to Work”; understanding the artist’s unique identity in relation to the larger culture; building systems of support and collaboration; explaining how an artist’s needs and passions can lead to innovation and authenticity; using language to inspire visual creativity; responding to the Internet and changing concepts of what is public and private; and accepting digression as a creative necessity. Through the exercises and techniques outlined in Art Without Compromise*, the reader will develop new confidence to pursue individual goals and inspiration to explore new paths, along with motivation to overcome creative blocks. With a revised understanding of the relevance in their own work within the sphere of contemporary culture, the artist will come away with a clearer perspective on his or her past and future work and a critical eye for personal authenticity.

Dr. Michael Milton . . . deals with the subject head on . . . a must read . . . it is what is needed at this time! Chaplain (COL) David Peterson, US Army-R, Coordinator, Presbyterian and Reformed Joint Committee on Military Chaplaincy Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? asked the psalmist (Psalm 2:1ESV). Yet in the postmodern city, the divergent voices find unity in opposition of the one who said, I am the way, the truth and the life . . . So how do we conduct faithful gospel ministry in this setting? As pastors? As chaplains? As church planters? As Christians in the workplace? In Cooperation without Compromise Dr. Michael A. Milton answers this timely question through coming to terms with pluralism, finding a working model to deal with it, testing the model against Scripture, and applying it in real life ministry settings. Originally presented to the Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society in Washington, D.C., in November 2006, the publisher is pleased to now make it available to a wider audience.

Educating with Love and Without Compromise is the stirring, heart-wrenching tale of educating children in one of the most impoverished and crime-ridden communities in the nation. It is one educator's story of returning home to provide hope, education, and leadership to a school, a community, and children who far too many people and even the system itself had given up on. Faced with challenges ranging from children forgotten by society and neglected at home, to teachers and bureaucrats who question the investment of time and resources in certain schools and communities, Educating with Love and Without Compromise is the story of one man's struggle to prove that children can succeed in struggling schools and rise from troubled communities. This easy-to-read, enjoyable tale is sure to both inspire and empower everyone that cares about and loves children. Among immense poverty, incompetent and uncaring teachers, an apathetic system, and an ever expanding, deadly drug turf war, Darryl Gilliam has come back "home" to lead the education of over 1,000 elementary school students. Faced with these challenges, he is armed with two core beliefs about the education of children. First, they must always have expressions and examples of love in and around their lives. Second, that under no circumstances should educators and adults ever compromise high expectations when it comes to the learning and lives of their students. Armed with these two core beliefs, boundless energy, and a focused plan for educational change, Gilliam works to inspire the same sense of passion and commitment around those around him as he embarks on a personal and professional journey that will take him beyond the walls of the school. Educating with Love and Without Compromise is a heart-wrenching, uplifting tale that will bring its readers into the real, often unglamorous work of educating children who often sit on the margins of classrooms, schools, and society. Dr. Steve Gallon III is a native of Miami, Florida. A graduate of Florida A & M University, he holds a degree in English Education, as well as a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and a Doctoral Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from Florida International University. Dr. Gallon has risen through the administrative ranks as a public school educator serving as a teacher, assistant principal, elementary and senior high school principal, and central office administrator in Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the nation's 4th largest school district. He has also served as a Superintendent of Schools. At every level of his service as an educator, Dr. Gallon has improved student performance, accountability, and overall educational quality. In addition to his work in public education, he has also serves as an adjunct professor in the area of Educational Leadership at Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University.
