Download and read online Undercover in PDF and EPUB 'Undercover lays bare the deceit, betrayal and cold-blooded violation practised again and again by undercover police officers - troubling, timely and brilliantly executed.' Henry Porter The gripping stories of a group of police spies - written by the award-winning investigative journalists who exposed the Mark Kennedy scandal - and the uncovering of forty years of state espionage. This was an undercover operation so secret that some of our most senior police officers had no idea it existed. The job of the clandestine unit was to monitor British 'subversives' - environmental activists, anti-racist groups, animal rights campaigners. Police stole the identities of dead people to create fake passports, driving licences and bank accounts. They then went deep undercover for years, inventing whole new lives so that they could live incognito among the people they were spying on. They used sex, intimate relationships and drugs to build their credibility. They betrayed friends, deceived lovers, even fathered children. And their operations continue today. Undercover reveals the truth about secret police operations - the emotional turmoil, the psychological challenges and the human cost of a lifetime of deception - and asks whether such tactics can ever be justified.

Download and read online Love Works in PDF and EPUB Love Works is a framework for successful leadership. It outlines a counterintuitive but proven path to success through a passionate and motivated workforce. The mainstay of this philosophy is leading with love, which relies on seven time-proven—but unfortunately not-so-often tested—principles that break down the natural walls within corporate cultures, empower managers and employees, disarm difficulties, and cultivate an atmosphere that builds long-term success. The key to leading with love is turning love from an emotion into an action. This shift fosters strong relationships, which in turn builds enthusiastic employees and leads to enthusiastic customers. Using love at work also leverages the undeniable truth that love builds healthy relationship at home, so why not use the same behavior to build healthy relationships at work? The book will explore the seven principles of love, which are patient, kind, trusting, unselfish, truthful, forgiving and dedicated. Joel Manby is proof that leading with love works. He has refined and relied upon this leadership philosophy for more than a quarter-century—first as a highly successful corporate executive at Saturn, then as Saab North America’s CEO, and most recently as president and CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment (HFE). HFE was also featured in the CBS hit show Undercover Boss. Overwhelmed by the response of the 18 million viewers who loved seeing love in action, Manby decided to share these principles.

Download and read online The Other Slavery in PDF and EPUB A landmark history — the sweeping story of the enslavement of tens of thousands of Indians across America, from the time of the conquistadors up to the early 20th century Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. Yet, as Andrés Reséndez illuminates in his myth-shattering The Other Slavery, it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors, then forced to descend into the “mouth of hell” of eighteenth-century silver mines or, later, made to serve as domestics for Mormon settlers and rich Anglos. Reséndez builds the incisive case that it was mass slavery, more than epidemics, that decimated Indian populations across North America. New evidence, including testimonies of courageous priests, rapacious merchants, Indian captives, and Anglo colonists, sheds light too on Indian enslavement of other Indians — as what started as a European business passed into the hands of indigenous operators and spread like wildfire across vast tracts of the American Southwest. The Other Slavery reveals nothing less than a key missing piece of American history. For over two centuries we have fought over, abolished, and tried to come to grips with African-American slavery. It is time for the West to confront an entirely separate, equally devastating enslavement we have long failed truly to see.
