She screamed and rushed to her dead husband lying on the floor. She touched his head for a moment, then turned those cutting eyes on Shag once more. "It's always you.

The names William Bligh, Fletcher Christian, and the Bounty have excited the popular imagination for more than two hundred years. The story of this famous mutiny has many beginnings and many endings but they all intersect on an April morning in 1789 near the island known today as Tonga. That morning, William Bligh and eighteen surly seamen were expelled from the Bounty and began what would be the greatest open-boat voyage in history, sailing some 4,000 miles to safety in Timor. The mutineers led by Fletcher Christian sailed off into a mystery that has never been entirely resolved.While the full story of what drove the men to revolt or what really transpired during the struggle may never be known, Penguin Classics has brought together-for the first time in one volume-all the relevant texts and documents related to a drama that has fascinated generations. Here is the full text of Bligh's Narrative of the Mutiny, the minutes of the court proceedings gathered by Edward Christian in an effort to clear his brother's name, and the highly polemic correspondence between Bligh and Christian-all amplified by Robert Madison's illuminating Introduction and rich selection of subsequent Bounty narratives
Relentlessly suspenseful and disturbingly timely, Bounty summons a chilling vision of our Internet culture gone mad, where freedom, privacy, and the rule of law are demolished by a crisis of nightmare proportions--and the future of justice lies in the hands not of the bravest but the most brutal. When a notorious Wall Street vulture is executed in his high-rise office by a sniper's bullet, it's the kill shot heard around the world. Welcome to Bounty4Justice.com, a rogue website for vigilante assassins, where outraged citizens bid up bounties on corporate crooks and corrupt elites. As the number of targets soars, amateur bounty hunters and professional hit men compete to exterminate the condemned, "proof-of-death" videos become Internet sensations, and the self-styled Robin Hood pulling the strings threatens to plunge the international community into anarchy. Along with other law enforcement agencies across the globe, the FBI and its agents on the case--led by Roman Novak and Rosemary Michaels--are desperately seeking a way to outmaneuver and overpower an all-but-invisible adversary with millions of dollars at its disposal and the ability to cripple the most sophisticated attackers with a keystroke. Following a black-hat hacker extraordinaire down a rabbit hole of firewalls, encryption, and unbreakable codes leads Novak and Michaels into the virtual underworld of the darknet--a seemingly impenetrable haven for the illicit and illegal where Bounty4Justice's mastermind is almost certainly hiding. But just when the agents think they are close to breaching their quarry's digital fortress, they find themselves stalked by an army of cyber outlaws out for blood.Advance praise for Bounty "[Michael] Byrnes fuses science fiction and espionage in this smart, near-futuristic dystopic thriller. . . . The action-packed story line is full of plot twists and explores such topical matters as cyberterrorism and hacktivism. Byrnes raises some serious questions about humankind's increasing dependence on--and assimilation with--the digital world."--Publishers Weekly "Vigilantism goes viral in this thriller about a website that pays bounties for the killing of unpunished child abusers, financial scammers, human rights violators, and other bad actors. . . . Charles Bronson's Death Wish meets the Internet."--Kirkus Reviews "This is a grand-scale spin on the vigilante story. . . . Byrnes's vigilante offers a twist on the theme: he's mastered cyberspace to the point where he can outsource some of his to-do list, offering a cash reward on his website to anyone who will kill the crooked banker . . . and the weasel who bilked Medicare for $127 million. And he's just getting started."--BooklistFrom the Hardcover edition.

FROM THE PUBLISHER "With a stranger's eye and a Texan's gait, Deke Watley makes his way through the riot of color and noise on Bourbon Street to the wrought-iron gates of the hotel Moreau. He is expected; he's come for August Moreau's private game. Deke is a gambler, and he's toted up some good winnings at poker, only the stakes he'll be playing for in New Orleans could cost him his life." "Like decadent, dangerous, lush New Orleans itself, this first novel set in 1958 entangles the wary yet unsuspecting Deke in coils of deceit and revenge. For everywhere, whether he's brooding over a drink at the Ten Spot Bar or hobbling through the house of horrors at a deserted amusement park or jousting with Mardi Gras revelers in the sleepless city's raucous streets, Deke's destiny is stalking him; and often it does not wear a mask." "From the moment Deke enters the plush world of the blinded but still powerful white business magnate August Moreau and his mulatto son - the mercurial, angry, wildly inventive Alexander - no one that Deke encounters is quite what he seems. Not the desk clerk, who hides half his face in a black silk sheath; not the well-spoken bellhop, who carries a loaded pistol in his expensive tailored suits. Not the smart and slutty Stacy or her timid husband, Pritchett. And certainly not the elusive, beautiful Hannah: She once killed a man, although that was some years after the time Deke knew, and abandoned, her in a small town back in Texas." Destiny may have stacked its deck against him, yet Deke has got no choice. He's a gambler, and no matter how perilous his alliances, how deadly the consequences, he can only play out the hand he's been dealt.
Bourgeois Radicals explores the NAACP's key role in the liberation of Africans and Asians across the globe even as it fought Jim Crow on the home front during the long civil rights movement. In the eyes of the NAACP's leaders, the way to create a stable international system, stave off communism in Africa and Asia, and prevent capitalist exploitation was to embed human rights, with its economic and cultural protections, in the transformation of colonies into nations. Indeed, the NAACP aided in the liberation struggles of multiple African and Asian countries within the limited ideological space of the Second Red Scare. However, its vision of a "third way" to democracy and nationhood for the hundreds of millions in Asia and Africa was only partially realized due to a toxic combination of the Cold War, Jim Crow, and die-hard imperialism. Bourgeois Radicals examines the toll that internationalism took on the organization and illuminates the linkages between the struggle for human rights and the fight for colonial independence.
