'Brits in Spain' first achieved notoriety during the 1980s - popularly imagined as a group made up of exiled criminals, drunken hooligans and leathery looking pensioners - welcome to 'Little England'! The British on the Costa Del Sol is the very first book to study this British expatriate community in any great depth and, through use of interviews with members of this community, paints a far more complex picture of its members. In doing so the author explodes the popularly held stereotype of 'Brits in Spain'. What emerges is a rich account of who migrates, their reasons for migration and the day to day realities of expatriate life.

Paul Blair a former Special Forces officer now a Civil Engineer was recruited by the International Court at The Hague and became the Director of the Criminal Apprehension Group of the UN. Apart from other tasks his main occupation is to bring to justice those who have had an international warrant issued for their apprehension and arrest by the Court at The Hague. To carry out any operation Blair has recruited a small very specialist team of former Special Forces. There are other operations his team will perform, especially the rescue of UN personnel who have been taken into custody by rebel forces in the country they have been sent to help. This is about two such operations in South America. The first is concluded without too much drama. It is the second one that turns out to be almost fatal for Blair and his team. The second operation in the same area of South America is a deliberate act to trap Blair and his team and hopefully wipe them out. They survive because of their skill and training, only to find out they have been sold out by rogue directors of the UN. Blair unravels this nest of vipers and brings them to justice. Again Blair and his dedicated team will hunt down these people responsible for not only taking UN volunteers hostage in South America, who have also been using the UN system to transport drugs and firearms around the world, he will have great pleasure in bringing their corrupt lives to a sudden halt. While engaged in these activities Paul Blair is also asked by the President of the US, to be his undercover agent outside the normal Law Enforcement agencies, to perform tasks of a sensitive nature that should not be made public. His first task is to track a prominent Washington Civil Servant, who has been systematically stealing military secrets from the Pentagon. It is the fact that this person is closely tied to the White House that is the problem. None the less Blair will bring him to justice without the knowledge of the other US law enforcement agencies.

First published in 1999, this insightful volume thoroughly explores the issue of migration and social exclusion in Southern Europe. It has a number of distinct approaches, including balancing academic research by including the South, reflecting on migration-related policies and a perceptive exploration of the new challenges which face the South. This accessible book will help readers to identify anomalies that lie at the heart of the European Union. On the one hand, unhindered movement of labour is allowed, yet, on the other hand, external frontiers are protected. Borders with Southern Europe allow entry by specific groups of migrants fleeing from their countries (such as the Polish and Albanians who live in Greece) and other illegal migrants. The rationale behind these processes is analysed while keeping in mind societal procedures, such as policy developments, the growth of new forms of xenophobia, exclusion and racialisation of different migrants. Coming at a time when interior ministry officials of the EU member states are pursuing a policy to cut down on third country migrants, this much-needed research sheds light on current political events.

After years wading through the worst the city has to offer, life as a cop has begun to feel like torture. Assigned to work with slick detective Sonny McCabe and his gang of cowboys, Nick knows he’s gotten in over his head. Sonny believes a gang of Cubans has come to an agreement with the Mafia, trading guns for drugs, and he wants to nip their alliance in the bud. He convinces Nick to get them a warrant for a raid, and the result is tragic. The information given by Sonny’s snitch is wrong, and the raid turns into a bloody mess. With two cops and a host of suspects dead, Nick and his fellow officers are marked for revenge—and their lives are about to get a whole lot worse.
