Biographies of Law Enforcement

A behind the scenes look into the New York City Police Department!

Whoever said, “There are eight million stories in the naked city,” was never a New York City Police officer. For America’s largest city, eight million stories is a drop in the bucket. To keep law and order in a city with nine million people crammed into a concrete jungle, you’ll need a highly trained police department. However, things do not always go as planned. In a world where customer service puts you on hold, the police are minutes away when you need them in seconds. From the minute I took an oath to protect and serve, my head was on a swivel. Creative criminals, backstabbing bosses, and a turnstile criminal justice system are just a few of the many obstacles NYPD members face on a daily basis.

Reconstruction History of the U.S.

The friendship between Mark Twain and Secretary of State John Hay is strained by the horrors of the Spanish-American War in this compelling dual biography.

In The Statesman and the Storyteller, documentarian Mark Zwonitzer presents a compelling dual biography of writer Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain) and statesman John Hay (who served as secretary of state under presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt). Covering the last ten years of their lives, Zwonitzer provides an intimate look into the friendship—and rivalry—of these influential men, as well as an elucidating portrait of the United States on the verge of emerging as a world power.

It was the era of the Spanish-American War, a controversial conflict in which the United States would eventually wrest control of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. In what many consider one of the most shameful periods in American history, Filipinos who believed they had been promised independence were instead violently subdued in a brutal war.
