Dock Boss: Eddie McGrath and the West Side Waterfront is the fascinating account of one gangster´s ascension from altar boy to the leader of New York City´s violent Irish Mob. Eddie McGrath´s life and crimes are traced through the tail-end of Prohibition, the gang warfare of the 1930s that propelled him into the position of an organized crime boss, the sordid years of underworld control over the bustling waterfront, McGrath´s involvement in dozens of gangland murders, and finally the decline of the dock mobsters following a period of longshoremen rebellion in the 1950s. Like walking into the backroom of a smoky West Side tavern, the book also features all the other unsavory characters who operated on the waterfront, including McGrath´s brother-in-law, John "Cockeye" Dunn; the gang´s hitman of choice, Andrew "Squint" Sheridan; racketeers such as Mickey Bowers, Timothy O´Mara, Charlie Yanowsky, Joe Butler, and Albert Ackalitis; as well as a plethora of corrupt union officials, robbers, enforcers, shakedown artists, loan sharks, boss loaders, and bookies. This is the real-life story of the preeminent racketeer on Manhattan´s lucrative waterfront and the bloodshed that long haunted the ports of New York City. 1. Language: English.

Learn about the process of German Reunification with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Reunification in Germany was a slow process. The country was divided between the communist East and the capitalist West from the end of World War Two in 1945 until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. To understand how momentous a step reunification in Germany was, it is necessary to go back to the start of the division in 1945. When World War Two ended, the four Allied powers of the US, Britain, France and the Soviet Union divided Germany between themselves. This was to share the load of helping a war-ravaged country rebuild itself. The US, Britain and France were given land in the west of Germany and the Soviet Union was given land in the east of Germany. Due to the influence of the occupying forces, over time West Germany developed into a capitalist state and East Germany developed into a communist state.

Roads bind our world—metaphorically and literally—transforming landscapes and the lives of the people who inhabit them. Roads have unparalleled power to impact communities, unite worlds and sunder them, and reveal the hopes and fears of those who travel them.With his marvelous eye for detail and his contagious enthusiasm, Ted Conover explores six of these key byways worldwide. In Peru, he traces the journey of a load of rare mahogany over the Andes to its origin, an untracked part of the Amazon basin soon to be traversed by a new east-west route across South America. In East Africa, he visits truckers whose travels have been linked to the worldwide spread of AIDS. In the West Bank, he monitors highway checkpoints with Israeli soldiers and then passes through them with Palestinians, witnessing the injustices and danger borne by both sides. He shuffles down a frozen riverbed with teenagers escaping their Himalayan valley to see how a new road will affect the now-isolated Indian region of Ladakh. From the passenger seat of a new Hyundai piling up the miles, he describes the exuberant upsurge in car culture as highways proliferate across China. And from inside an ambulance, he offers an apocalyptic but precise vision of Lagos, Nigeria, where congestion and chaos on freeways signal the rise of the global megacity.A spirited, urgent book that reveals the costs and benefits of being connected—how, from ancient Rome to the present, roads have played a crucial role in human life, advancing civilization even as they set it back. 1.
