More About the Author
I graduated from the University of Florida (BA Pol. Sci. 1962)(Go Gators!) and Georgetown University Law Center (1972, editor, Law Journal). I've followed a wandering career course, practiced law in and out of government, became a journalist and ended up serving six years as assistant managing editor at the very conservative The Washington Times newspaper in Washington. My guru was the former editor-in-chief Arnaud de Borchgrave, a true professional whose passion was and is journalism and truth, not ideology. I also reported from Central America, Russia, India, Pakistan and the first Gulf War before leaving The Times. I then spent two years at a small think tank in Washington studying terrorism and international organized crime, and from there went to work in 1993 (following the first WTC bombing attack) as a Democratic counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives Crime Subcommittee, where I worked on legislation and hearings involving terrorism and firearms.
I currently work part-time at the nonprofit Violence Policy Center in Washington. I sought out this work and center after I was converted from an NRA partisan to a gun control advocate based on what I learned about the predatory American gun industry while serving on "the Hill." The rest of my time I devote to projects involving the study of crime, terrorism, and history.
I used to be a "Scoop Jackson Democrat" politically, but today I am decidely non-partisan---I find little competence, honesty, or source of inspiration in either "organized party."

Mr. Diaz brings all the pieces together in one book that we don't see in the news; the guns, the gangs, the drugs, the border problems.
Alot of books just glance off the topics but it appears that Diaz did some digging.
Having grown up in Texas as the son of a county judge - i've seen some of these firsthand.
Good stuff and well written.

I think that this book should be well read and understood just now in the Old Continent. We Europeans should learn from the American experience much more than we do.Published 1 month ago by Sibiriak
