In the world's most dangerous trouble spots, a small band of men risk their lives to fly in desperately needed aid. But they are not heroes. Their giant ex-Soviet cargo planes are also riddled with secret compartments, which they fill with drugs, guns, money or people. They deliver anywhere, and they rtake their cut. But they pay a heavy price, many losing their lives to gun-toting pirates, terrorists, hostile state forces, jealous competitors and alcohol. In Outlaws Inc. Matt Potter follows their incredible story around the world. He discovers a secret society of mercenaries, dictators, agents, gangsters, businessmen and real-life Bond villains. Updated for the paperback edition, this story is the stuff of spy thrillers and action movies, but all the more terrifying for being true. 'Outlaws Inc. is an explosive read, full of heart-thumping excitement and brilliant detective work which shines a light into the darkest corners of the world' Sean Rayment, author of Bomb Hunters

He aquí una furiosa historia de amor y desamor, de imposturas y violencia, de lealtades y traiciones, de enigmas sin resolver y venganzas inesperadas. En el verano de 1978, cuando España no ha salido aún del franquismo y no termina de entrar en la democracia y las fronteras sociales y morales parecen más porosas que nunca, un adolescente llamado Ignacio Cañas conoce por casualidad al Zarco y a Tere, dos delincuentes de su edad, y ese encuentro cambiará para siempre su vida. Treinta años más tarde, un escritor recibe el encargo de escribir un libro sobre el Zarco, convertido para entonces en un mito de la delincuencia juvenil de la Transición, pero lo que el escritor acaba encontrando no es la verdad concreta del Zarco, sino una verdad imprevista y universal, que nos atañe a todos. Así, a través de un relato que no concede un instante de tregua, escondiendo su extraordinaria complejidad bajo una superficie transparente, la novela se convierte en una apasionada pesquisa sobre los límites de nuestra libertad, sobre las motivaciones inescrutables de nuestros actos y sobre la naturaleza inasible de la verdad. También confirma a Javier Cercas como una de las figuras indispensables de la narrativa europea contemporánea. ** Premio Mandarache 2014 La crítica ha dicho: «Una obra maestra de la narrativa.» Alberto Manguel, La Repubblica «Decir que esta novela va de delincuentes juveniles es como decir que Guerra y paz va de Rusia. Se bebe como agua, pero la digestión es lenta.» Enric González, Jot Down «Una novela nítida y compleja, trepidante y melancólica.» José Carlos Mainer, El País «Una novela excelente.» JM Pozuelo Yvancos, ABC

Soft-spoken, cheerful, handsome, and well dressed, George West Musgrave “looked more like a senator than a cattle rustler.” Yet he was a cattle rustler as well as a bandit, robber, and killer, “guilty of more crimes than Billy the Kid was ever accused of.” In Last of the Old-Time Outlaws, Karen Holliday Tanner and John D. Tanner, Jr., recount the colorful life of Musgrave (1877-1947), enduring badman of the American Southwest. Musgrave was a charter member of the High Five/Black Jack gang, which was responsible for Arizona’s first bank hold-up, numerous post office and stagecoach robberies, and the largest Santa Fe Railroad heist in history. Following a decade-long hunt, he was captured and acquitted of killing a former Texas Ranger. After this near brush with prison or execution, he headed for South America, where he gained fame as the leading Gringo rustler. It wasn’t until the 1940s that Musgrave’s age and poor health brought an end to a criminal career that had spanned two continents and two centuries. Incorporating previously unknown facts about the career of this frontier outlaw, the Tanners thoroughly document Musgrave’s half-century of crime, from his childhood in the Texas brush country to his final days in Paraguay.

This eBook (Part One) is the first half of the hardcover book, and contains approximately 99,000 words and 80 color photos. “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is a slang term for banishment which is used by all 1%er outlaw motorcycle clubs when a member leaves the club of his own volition or is expelled, and the remaining members are not happy with the actual reason that the member left the club. In the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, the term “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is their version of being banished to motorcycle club member hell, for an ex-member that has been deemed “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is no longer allowed to associate with any member of the Bandidos nor attend any Bandido function. In this expose of his life as a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, Edward “Connecticut Ed” Winterhalder allows the reader a rare look into how major decisions were made by Bandido leaders all over the world, how the Bandidos expanded into the worldwide dynasty they are today, and how the Bandido machine operates on a day-to-day basis. While a member of the largest 1%er motorcycle club in the world, Connecticut Ed was privy to much information about the inside workings of the club and what the future held for it. Regularly assigned projects by the club’s international leader, he was responsible for defusing the war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine in Canada, establishing new Bandido and support club chapters worldwide, organizing the club into a well-oiled machine, and mediating internal power struggles between club members. As founder, President and Secretary of the Bandidos’ Oklahoma chapter, for the first time in history, Connecticut Ed is your personal guide as you learn what it takes to establish a new Bandidos chapter and keep it running for the first few years of its life. In his thirty years of riding and/or associating with various 1%er outlaw motorcycle clubs, he gives the reader a unique inside look into the world of today’s 1%er motorcycle clubs. In his last few years with the Bandidos, Connecticut Ed realized that the club’s ideology was changing due to the fact that methamphetamine use was now becoming an accepted part of everyday club life. After failing to alter the destructive course the club was on, he left the Bandidos Oklahoma chapter in September 2003 “OUT IN GOOD STANDINGS”. But because of the wealth of information he possessed about the inner workings of the club, Connecticut Ed’s “out” status was changed to “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” by the world President of the Bandidos just before Thanksgiving 2003. Was he that much of a threat to the worldwide leadership of the Bandidos? Find out for yourself by reading this book……

This is a major new edition of the bestselling practical guide for managers in the new Europe. It has been expanded not only to cover the three new members of the European Union - Austria, Finland and Sweden - but has also been generally revised and updated to reflect international developments, including a new section of Russia. In addition, John Mole has provided a new toolkit to enable readers to test their own cultural responses. Managers working in a multicultural environment often make two mistakes; they misunderstand the behavioural and cultural differences, or are over-sensitive and defensive. Both can lead to reduced effectiveness and alienation - even confrontation. Mind Your Manners addresses such crucial issues as communication, leadership, decision making, formal and informal meetings, teams, and networking.
