More than fifty years ago Dallas was under assault from hoards of vicious armed robbers with a penchant for violence. Police Lieutenant H.C. Holloway carried scars from a wild gun-battle with one of those criminals and a consuming hatred for them all. He devised a plan to hide shotgun armed offi cers inside likely targets with orders to shoot them down on sight. For more than two decades the unit he formed for that purpose made war on armed robbers with bloody and brutal effectiveness. They were called "Holloway's Raiders." This is their story.

On a pleasant Monday evening in September of 1969, twenty-six year-old Johnny Lee Thomas excused himself from his familys dinner table, picked up a pump shotgun and announced that he was going huntingalone. Seconds later he stepped out of his house and shot sixteen-year-old Aljewel Wesley in the face as she sat on her own front porch listening to records with her boyfriend and grandmother. That was but the first shot in what would shortly become the biggest gunbattle in the 130 year history of the Dallas Police Department. Johnny Thomas continued to shoot at neighbors, friends, family members and passing motorists until the police arrived, at which point he ambushed and shot the first three officers on the scene. He then retreated to his house and held off an assault by a hundred or more determined police officers in a furious firefight that lasted more than an hour and involved hundreds if not thousands of rounds fired. Before the incident ended, ten persons would be shot, including four police officers and a TV cameraman; two would be killed, including the shooter himself. Authored by a participant and based upon official police documents, original newspaper articles and personal interviews with forty six of the hundred or so officers present, the book details the gunbattle from the first shot to the final barrage of gunfire that ended the shooters life and brought it to a close. It includes a listing of sixty-seven Dallas officers known to have been combatants or otherwise involved in the incident and details their location and participation as far as it is known. Also included is an analysis of the factors that contributed to the spectacular nature of the incident from departmental policies, procedures, equipment and tactics to the culture and tenor of the times. Chapters are also dedicated to the firearms used in the battle and an analysis of exactly who, among the many officers involved, was responsible for putting an end to Thomass rampagesomething that was never addressed in the original investigation. The concluding chapters cover the aftermath of the gunbattle from the neighborhood riots and arson fires to the truncated investigation and include a brief history of the Dallas Police Departments Tactical Division and the fundamental changes in the operation of that unit that were brought about by the affair on Hall Street. The book closes with an epilogue bringing the reader up to date on the major players in the drama.

Since the publication of Guns, Bullets, and Gunfights in 1996, readers have pressed for a follow-up with more information on Jim Cirillo and his service with the New York City Police Department's Stakeout Unit. That book is finally here. Author Paul Kirchner was working with Cirillo on this biography at the time of Jim's untimely death in 2007. Kirchner draws on his extensive interviews with Cirillo, his family, friends, ex-partner Bill Allard and other SOU officers to create a vivid portrait of an affable and gregarious man who nonetheless was "the last man many armed robbers saw on this earth." In previously unpublished accounts, Cirillo describes in detail numerous stakeouts and sets the record straight about what he and the other SOU members actually accomplished on the streets of New York. Cirillo also talks about his early years as a street cop and his service with the NYPD Emergency Service Unit; his successes as a lifelong competitive shooter; his distinguished career as a firearms trainer; his unique relationship with Jeff Cooper; his carry guns and the guns of the SOU; and much more. Cirillo's unique voice and humor enliven every page, resulting in a fitting, lasting tribute to a legendary police officer, shooting instructor, gunfighter and raconteur.

The third and final installment of the JELLY BRYCE Trilogy, The Man in the Mirror follows FBI Special Agent Delf "Jelly" Bryce through the tumultuous war years from 1941 until his death in 1974.Many things changed for Jelly during this time period, as both he and the country he loved matured while dealing with threats both from within and without.This is a story of true courage, amazing physical ability, and personal honor tempered by the inner struggles of a man driven to do the right thing in a world in which that path is not always clear.Inspired by historical events."Ideally, I suppose every writer of history hopes someone will take their work and improve upon it. I cannot praise Mike Conti's Jelly Bryce trilogy too highly. He has breathed life into Jelly Bryce in ways my biography could not; ways in which the dry facts of newspaper articles, police reports, personnel files and even interviews of some friends and relatives have fallen short. I only wish Jelly could have read the trilogy. I believe he would have approved."-- Ron OwensAuthor of "Jelly Bryce, Legendary Lawman"

Behind the Scenes: Contemporary Set Design is a visually rich survey of contemporary set design for the theater, opera and contemporary performance-based work. International in scope, Behind the Scenes presents the imaginative and innovative work of a broad range of designers, including Peter Brooks, Ming Cho Lee, Alison Chitty, Es Devlin, Robert Wilson, Robert Lepage, Romeo Castellucci and Chloe Lamford; and organizations such as Hotel Pro Forma, Ex Machina, Station House Opera and Punch Drunk. Featuring initial sketches, diagrams and photographs, this book provides an understanding of theater design and its methods, that—in contrast with the number of specific ‘how-to’ set design books on the market—appeals to beginners and enthusiasts, alongside students and theater professionals alike. Behind the Scenes: Contemporary Set Design covers a myriad of innovations, from traditional set designs, to those that push boundaries using immersive sets, or pop-up theaters in derelict locations; alongside organizations that use set design to social advantage—for example Cardboard Citizens. The lavishly illustrated work presented throughout the book is punctuated by a number of essays by noteworthy personalities, covering subjects such as the history of set design, technical processes from design to production, and new emerging trends. International in scope Behind the Scenes includes examples from the Prague Quadrennial, BAM in Brooklyn, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the National Theatre and the Royal Opera House in London. Featuring artists whose work has crossed over into the theater—such as, David Hockney, whose imaginative designs have been brought to life in a variety of productions from the Magic Flute to Tristan und Isolde; Behind the Scenes: Contemporary Set Design positions set design within a larger context of visual art, design and culture.
