"Leon Stein’s gripping narrative of the Triangle tragedy is one of the classics of American history. As the grandson of a onetime Triangle seamstress, I salute the reissue of a book that anyone who cares about labor, past or present, should read."—Michael Kazin, Georgetown University, author of The Populist Persuasion: An American History and other books Praise for the 1962 edition— "Stein recreates the tragic events of the fire in all their dramatic intensity. His moving account is a work of dedication."—New York Times Book Review "With commendable restraint, Stein uses newspapers, official documents, and the evidence of survivors to unfold a story made more harrowing by the unemotional simplicity of its narration."—Library Journal "Stein... suggests that the fire alerted the public to shocking working conditions all over the city and helped the unions organize the clothing industry, but his good taste keeps him from selling the reader any silver lining. A by-product of the careful research that has gone into this excellent narrative is an interesting sketch of the hard lives and times of working girls in the days when the business of America was business."—New Yorker March 25, 2011, marks the centennial of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, in which 146 garment workers lost their lives. A work of history relevant for all those who continue the fight for workers’ rights and safety, this edition of Leon Stein’s classic account of the fire features a substantial new foreword by the labor journalist Michael Hirsch, as well as a new appendix listing all of the victims’ names, for the first time, along with addresses at the time of their death and locations of their final resting places.

This “outstanding history” of the 1911 disaster that changed the course of 20th-century politics and labor relations “is social history at its best” (Kevin Baker, The New York Times Book Review). New York City, 1911. As the workday was about to end, a fire broke out in the Triangle shirtwaist factory of Greenwich Village. Within minutes it consumed the building’s upper three stories. Firemen were powerless to rescue those trapped inside: their ladders simply weren’t tall enough. People on the street watched in horror as desperate workers jumped to their deaths. Triangle is both a harrowing chronicle of the Triangle shirtwaist fire and a vibrant portrait of an era. It follows the waves of Jewish and Italian immigration that supplied New York City’s garment factories with cheap, mostly female labor. It portrays the Dickensian work conditions that led to a massive waist-worker’s strike in which an unlikely coalition of socialists, socialites, and suffragettes took on bosses, police, and magistrates. And it shows how a public outcry over the fire led to an unprecedented alliance between labor reformers and Tammany Hall politicians. With a memorable cast of characters, including J.P. Morgan’s blue-blooded activist daughter Anne, and political king maker Charles F. Murphy, as well as the many workers who lost their lives in the fire, Triangle presents a dramatic account of early 20th century New York and the events that gave rise to urban liberalism.

Zoie has grown up without having to worry about protecting herself in the Big Apple. Her father is Bentley Behr, self-made millionaire and president of the espionage agency Fermata Incorporated, and he has trained her since adolescence to be the best agent in Fermata's ranks. It is this level of skill that attracts the attention of Maximilio Villa, the crooked broker with a penchant for revenge. A mission in the Bermuda Triangle-as well as a failed murder attempt-leads Zoie dangerously closer to the secret involving both this man and a past she was too young to remember. In an effort to keep her out of harm's way, Bentley gives her the head position of Fermata's newly-created Nashville Division, but Zoie isn't about to give up on finding out the truth. Along for the ride are her closest friends and a certain young man by the name of Adrian Phelps, a childhood playmate who is still a mystery to her.

DIVThe Linden Triangle: Linden Avenue and Linden Place, Hempstead, Long Island. At this blighted intersection, seemingly forgotten by the middle and upper class communities that surround it, the dream of suburban comfort and safety has devolved into a nightmare of flying bullets and bloodshed. Here, a war between the Bloods and Crips has torn a once-peaceful neighborhood apart. The book tells the true story of one year in the life of a suburban village-turned-war-zone. Written by Kevin Deutsch, award-winning criminal justice reporter for Newsday, it follows two warring gangs and the anti-violence activists and police desperate to stop them. As the body count climbs and conflict spreads to New York City, young men wielding military grade weaponry wage a prolonged battle over pride, respect, revenge and their legacies. Based on immersive reporting and more than 250 interviews with gang members, their families, drug addicts, police and others, The Triangle is the first insider account of a New York Bloods/Crips gang war from the only journalist ever given access to the crews’ secretive realm. Triangle is a chilling investigation of a world in which teenagers shoot their childhood friends over drug debts; where gang rape is used as a form of retaliation; and once-promising students are molded into cold-blooded assassins. With gang and drug-related violence responsible for as many as half of all non-domestic homicides in the United States, The Triangle will make a significant contribution to the national conversation about gangs, chronicling the effects of armed gang conflicts not just on Long Island and New York City but throughout America. /div

Ronald Fino, one of the FBI's foremost undercover operatives, does not scare easily.That is why he's not afraid to name names in this undercover expose. For years, Fino wanted to write about his experiences, but each time the FBI managed to stop him. Even requests from major authors like Tom Clancy were placed on old. Today, Ronald Fino is retired from his service to the FBI and is ready to tell his story. Because of his unique position as the son of a Mafia boss, Fino got to know the ins and outs of organized crime from the ground up. He learned how they control members of Congress and local officials as well as their ties to presidents, politicians, and law enforcement officials.But working to bring mob members to justice and exposing political corruption wasn't enough for Fino. He also managed to infiltrate the Russian Mafia, made underground contact with Muslim terrorists, and exposed illegal arms smugglers, child porn organizers, arcotics dealers, and international money launderers. It's all here. It's all true. And as Ronald Fino says, "It's not going away anytime soon."

Mike Bara, author of Ancient Aliens on the Moon, takes a hard look at the Bermuda Triangle. For decades, no single place has intrigued the world more than the baffling mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. Hundreds of ships, planes and yachts have disappeared in the dark, mysterious waters between Bermuda and Florida, far more than in any other part of the world. Ships have vanished without a trace only to magically reappear years later in good order but minus their crews, almost as if the intervening years had not even passed–for them. Yachts and ocean liners have gone missing in good weather with no explanation. Pilots have reported bizarre problems with their instruments as compasses and guidance systems have spun inexplicably out of control over the shadowy waters of the Triangle. Entire squadrons of military aircraft have disappeared off of radarscopes in clear weather and with no forewarning. Others have experienced strange magnetic anomalies and otherworldly encounters with mysterious craft and unrecognizable energetic fields. Explanations range from alien encounters to rogue waves to twisting unnatural funnel spouts caused by submerged civilizations left over from the days of Atlantis. New York Times bestselling author Mike Bara investigates these and other mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle in his new book The Triangle. Find out what really happened to Flight 19, the Navy training flight that last reported “they look like they’re from outer space” over the Triangle. Examine the undersea ruins of a lost civilization just off the island of Bimini and the strange stone road that leads directly into the deep waters of the Triangle. Examine the case of the Cotopaxi, the ore ship lost at sea only to reappear decades later off the coast of Cuba, far beyond where it was last sighted in the Triangle’s maritime shipping lanes. These and other enigmatic cases will be stripped open and laid bare before the light of history as the reader is carried on a journey to the world’s most frightening and impenetrable mystery–The Bermuda Triangle.
