In this the guard, the police are not there to catch wrong doers, but rather they are there in the ghetto to help maintain the status quo and social order.

Well anyway, guess what dear Reader? Your favorite Travelers have all returned for this immensely intense sequel to the internationally successful Part IV; The Mystery of the Thick Red Socks. Here is a spoiler alert: Patience is back! Passion is back! Desire is back! Gifted is back! And “SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!” as Gomer Pyle would say. The very first Traveler whom I introduced you to, in Part I – The Greatest Touch, has returned. That is correct, my friend. The Ving Rhames lookalike, the incomparable Imagination is in the building! YES! And you will also be blessed by surprise cameo appearances from a few other Traveler “celebrity lookalike” heavyweights who touched your life throughout the prophetic pages of this life-changing 7-Part Series! So if Suspense-Thriller is indeed your preferred genre, then what you are about to encounter between the front cover and this back cover of my latest book – The Traveler’s Touch Saga: Invasion of the Fallen Angels – is a nail-biting, heart-pounding, “Haunted House Rollercoaster Ride,” metaphorically speaking, that will miraculously motivate you to touch lives wherever your travels take you, with the “healing touch of hope” from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ via the Holy Spirit. With that being said, if God is indeed IN you, then after reading this Inspirational Self-Help Chapbook I exhort you, my fellow Christian Traveler, to share the blissful blessings of God by reaching out and touching somebody’s hand, and make this world a better place...if you can.

Triumph is the story of my journey through the fire service and has been a dream of mine since I was promoted to the rank of fire lieutenant in 1974. Writing this story and reliving many events was painful, such as the blatant racism and disrespect experienced on duty the day Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee; and when the firefighters union expelled all the black firefighters from membership when they refused to disband their association as members of the Black Firefighters association; and "Scrotum on the head", the worst scandal in the Miami Fire Department's history, are a few of the most important stories revealed in my book. But this story is not just about pain; it is also about the joy of triumphing over the obstacles and barriers that were endemic for trailblazing black firefighters from the mid 1960's and beyond.

In this fascinating new book, Vincent Henry (a 21-year veteran of the NYPD who recently retired to become a university professor) explores the psychological transformations and adaptations that result from police officers' encounters with death. Police can encounter death frequently in the course of their duties, and these encounters may range from casual contacts with the deaths of others to the most profound and personally consequential confrontations with their own mortality. Using the 'survivor psychology' model as its theoretical base, this insightful and provocative research ventures into a previously unexplored area of police psychology to illuminate and explore the new modes of adaptation, thought, and feeling that result from various types of death encounters in police work. The psychology of survival asserts that the psychological world of the survivor--one who has come in close physical or psychic contact with death but nevertheless managed to live--is characterized by five themes: psychic numbing, death guilt, the death imprint, suspicion of counterfeit nurturance, and the struggle to make meaning. These themes become manifest in the survivor's behavior, permeating his or her lifestyle and worldview. Drawing on extensive interviews with police officers in five nominal categories--rookie officers, patrol sergeants, crime scene technicians, homicide detectives, and officers who survived a mortal combat situation in which an assailant or another officer died--Henry identifies the impact such death encounters have upon the individual, the police organization, and the occupational culture of policing. He has produced a comprehensive and highly textured interpretation of police psychology and police behavior, bolstered by the unique insights that come from his personal experience as an officer, his intimate familiarity with the subtleties and nuances of the police culture's value and belief systems, and his meticulous research and rigorous method. Death Work provides a unique prism through which to view the individual, organizational, and social dynamics of contemporary urban policing. With a foreword by Robert Jay Lifton and a chapter devoted to the local police response to the World Trade Center attacks, Death Work will be of interest to psychologists and criminal justice experts, as well as police officers eager to gain insight into their unique relationship to death.
