In the Line of Fire by Pervez Musharraf Book Resume:

It is almost unprecedented for a head of state to publish a memoir while still in office. But Pervez Musharraf is no ordinary head of state. As President of Pakistan since 1999, his is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, and he continues to play a crucial role in the global war on terror. A one-time supporter of the Taliban, a general who fought in several wars, President Musharraf took a decisive turn against militant Islam in 2001. Since then he has survived two assassination attempts; rooted out militants in his own government; helped direct countless raids against al-Qaeda both in his cities and in the mountains; and tracked Osama bin Laden with technical and human intelligence. IN THE LINE OF FIRE is astonishingly revealing and honest about dozens of topics of intense interest to the world. Among its many revelations: exactly how Pakistani authorities tracked down and smashed three major al-Qaeda control centres in the mountains; how al-Qaeda's many-layered structure was revealed after the assassination attempts; Bin Laden's current position within the al-Qaeda hierarchy; what it has been like to deal with Bush and Blair; how Pakistan and India have avoided nuclear confrontation; and much more. The terrible earthquake of 2005, killing nearly 40,000 Pakistanis, is just one chapter in a life and career that has been filled with danger and drama. The worldwide launch of President Musharraf's memoir promises to be a sensation.

Into the Line of Fire by Allan Bruce Book Resume:

When he left the New Zealand Fire Service in 1982, author of INTO THE LINE OF FIRE, Allan Bruce, believed the recently fledged nationalised fire service was heading down a 'righteous' path. But in the years that followed reports surfaced of an entirely different nature. Having observed emerging developments in the New Zealand Fire Service, the scope and magnitude of these changes raised red flags. Now in retirement, he began an investigation to understand what had gone wrong and, even more importantly, why. The book title, INTO THE LINE OF FIRE, has two distinct meanings. The first is obvious: Throughout their service, firefighters understand each time they respond to a call-out they enter into the hazardous line of fire. This they accept without question. But while the second meaning is less apparent, it soon becomes clear just how much in the political line of fire frontline firefighters have been - and how significantly it affects morale and efficiency. The men and women who become firefighters should never be forced into the political line of fire. INTO THE LINE OF FIRE is an important reminder with timely warnings and a challenge to government. With practical solutions to ongoing problems it also outlines out what might happen if the core problem issues outlined are not urgently addressed.

Women in the Line of Fire by Erin Solaro Book Resume:

In 2004, Erin Solaro went to Iraq to study American servicewomen — what they were doing, how well they were doing it, how they were faring in combat. In 2005, she went to Afghanistan on the same mission. Having spent time embedded with combat troops and conducting stateside interviews with numerous analysts and veterans, Solaro is convinced that the time to drop all remaining restrictions on women's full equality under arms is now. The Army, the country, the women of America — and of the world — need it. Women in the Line of Fire details why this will not be an easy task. Although 15 percent of the military is female, the Army and Marines still resist acknowledging what is, in fact, already happening — women are fighting, and fighting well. For the Religious Right and the cultural conservatives, women in combat is a hot-button issue in their campaign to “take back the culture.” But for the young men and women on the lines, brought up in an America where equality between the sexes was never second guessed and where making up the rules as you go along comes with the territory, it's the new reality.

In the Line of Fire by Anthony J. Pinizzotto Book Resume:

This study investigates issues relative to assessing and addressing risks to officer safety. The study was conducted over a 3-year period and addressed 40 distinct cases of serious assaults on law enforcement officers. The cases involved 52 victim officers and 42 offenders. Routine, repetitive tasks emerged as a continuing threat to officer safety. Traffic stops, searches, and use of handcuffs are examples of tasks that should be second nature to officers but presented problems to the victims in the cases studied. Officers cited training as critical to the actions they took to protect themselves. Post-assault trauma and recovery proved to be areas that perhaps have not received appropriate attention from the law enforcement community. Many of the victim officers in the study displayed an uncommon "will to survive," an attitude many officers attributed to their survival training. This article reports extensive information on the victims, offenders, and incidents studied, and identifies specific areas where law enforcement training and procedures may be improved. Figures, tables, appendixes, references.

In the Line of Fire by Cheryl Regehr,Ted Bober Book Resume:

In the wake of disaster emergency responders are first on the scene and last to leave. They put concern for the lives of others over concern for their own lives, and work tirelessly to recover the bodies of the missing. Their heroic actions save lives, provide comfort to and care for the wounded and inspire onlookers, but at what cost to themselves? We now know that rescue workers who are exposed to mutilated bodies, mass destruction, multiple casualties, and life-threatening situations may become the hidden victims of disaster. The traumatic consequences of exposure can profoundly impact emergency responders, radiate to their families, and permeate the emergency organization. This much-needed new book, based on the authors' original research and clinical experience, describes the consequences of trauma exposure on police officers, fire fighters, and paramedics. Weaving data collected in large-scale quantitative studies with the personal stories of responders shared in qualitative interviews, this much-needed account explores the personal, organizational, and societal factors that can ameliorate or exacerbate traumatic response. Stress theory, organizational theory, crisis theory, and trauma theory provide a framework for understanding trauma responses and guiding intervention strategies. Using an ecological perspective, the authors explore interventions spanning prevention, disaster response, and follow-up, on individual, family, group, organizational, and community levels. They provide specific suggestions for planning intervention programs, developing trauma response teams, training emergency service responders and mental health professionals, and evaluating the effectiveness of services provided. Disaster, whether large-scale or small, underscores our ongoing vulnerability and the crucial need for response plans that address the health and well being of those who confront disaster on a daily basis. In the Line of Fire speaks directly to these emergency response workers as well as to the mental health professionals who provide them with services, the administrators who support their efforts, and the family members who wonder if their loved one will return home safely from work tonight.

In the Line of Fire by Joseph Francis Sheley,James D. Wright Book Resume:

Their findings confirm the prevalence of firearms in these selected populations, but challenge a number of common stereotypes concerning gun possession and use by juveniles. Fear - rather than the needs of criminal activity, drug trafficking, and gang affiliation - motivates juveniles to arm themselves. The authors urge a policy aimed at reducing such motivation rather than attempting to remove guns from the hands of youth.

In the Line of Fire by R. J. Noonan Book Resume:

In the vein of Lisa Jackson and Julia Maynard, a dark and compulsive mystery about secrets too big for the small town's britches. When secrets are too big to buy, it's worth killing to bury them. Growing up, Laura Mori was constantly overshadowed by her far more successful siblings. She had a tough time appeasing her parents, and now that she's a police officer, recently promoted to detective, they still seem less than fazed. Everyone knows a cop's salary--it's meager, to say the least. But Laura has found her calling--she was born to be a detective and is determined to prove it, if not to her parents, then at least to the boys club that is Sunrise Lake PD. She sticks out like a sore thumb as the only young female minority, but she has resolved to at least seem like an unshakeable thumb. The next case file on her desk turns out to be a bank heist and it should be easy enough, but what starts off as a one-and-done job quickly begins to seem too by-the-book and oddly like a notorious series of deadly bank hits from years past dubbed Twilight. But it's a dead end--Twilight is only ever mentioned in hushed tones, and there's little to no history on it in the department. And then she receives her first sign, of many more to come, that her investigation is not welcome. Alongside her partner Z and stunningly attractive FBI agent Nick Derringer, she begins to pull on the frayed thread, and that's when she sees the bloody writing on the wall: the only other young female cop on the force was KIA during Twilight. With too much on the line to lose, including her own life, Laura must get to the bottom of the case and fast, or she, too, will become history.

In the Line of Fire by Rex Kevin Sadler,Thomas Albert S. Hayllar Book Resume:

Over 100,000 Australians have laid down their lives in the service of their country over the past 100 years. Conflicts including the two world wars, Korea and Vietnam have been fought by young men from every state in the country. In the Line of Fire explores the nature of combat from the point of the view of the men doing the actual fighting. From the heights of Gallipoli to the trenches of the Western Front, from the deserts of North Africa to the jungle POW camps of the Thai-Burma Railway, from the savage cold of a Korean winter to the steamy heat of Vietnam, this book details what it's really like to be in the line of fire. It also reveals the experiences of Australian women at war, as well as the combat photographers who did so much to document the realities of the front line. Using first-hand accounts, contemporary sources, biographies and over 60 classic photographs to create an extraordinarily vivid picture of Australians in combat, this book also provides an incisive overview of each campaign that lends depth and context to each of the individual stories. Compelling, fascinating and informative, it's a must-have for any student of Australian history.
