Chicago Blues by Mike Rowe
Book DescriptionChicago has always had a reputation as a "wide open town" with a high tolerance for gangsters, illegal liquor, and crooked politicians. It has also been the home for countless black musicians and the birthplace of a distinctly urban blues--more sophisticated, cynical, and street-smart than the anguished songs of the Mississippi delta--a music called the Chicago blues. This is the history of that music and the dozens of black artists who congregated on the South and Near West Sides. Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, Tampa Red, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, Otis Rush, Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells, Eddie Taylor--all of these giants played throughout the city and created a musical style that had imitators and influence all over the world.

Books By Author Mike Rowe
Policing Beyond Macpherson, Paperback (February 2007)
Explores the impact of the Lawrence Report since it was published in 1999. This work assesses the extent to which, in retrospect, the Macpherson Inquiry has led to significant changes to policing, and highlights areas where efforts ought to be concentrated.
Policing, Race and Racism, Paperback (May 2004)» View all books by Mike Rowe
An investigation into why race has become a significant issue facing the British police. The author argues that the police response to race has led to a consideration of fundamental issues about the relation of the police to society as a whole and not just minority groups who might be most directly affected.
