 Synopsis 

The truth is, the full story of sex and society in 20th-century Ireland has never been told.

In Occasions of Sin, acclaimed historian Diarmaid Ferriter provides for the first time a complete account of the public and private worlds of Irish sex, covering: abortion, gregnancy, celibacy, contraception, censorship, infanticide, homosexuality, prostitution, marriage, popular culture, and more.

 Synopsis

The police stars, CPD clothes, and cop cars we see every day.

The Chicago Police Department is a mythical and legendary law enforcement unit as well as a closed-door society. In On the Job: Behind the Stars of the Chicago Police Department, Daniel P. Smith draws the curtain to reveal the officers and their personal stories. Smith, an award-winning journalist and the product of a Chicago Police family, explores the work/life juxtaposition of the men and women--mothers and fathers, realists and idealists, cynics and consolers--who don the Chicago Police star.
