America’s Second Civil War: Law Enforcement in the 1960s and 1970s

From uniformed law enforcement in Oregon in the 1960’s through a one-man ATF outpost in the wild west of Nevada during the 1970’s, this book is a raw and rare look at what dealing with criminals looked like in an age when cops had “throw away” guns and sheriffs could choose not to pay a jailer to keep watch over locked cells. For better and for worse, it was a different time. True stories of murder, bombings, hot car pursuits, burned-down brothels, and arms dealers.
