FOUR DEAD IN OHIO: WAS THERE A CONSPIRACY AT KENT STATE?
ISBN 0-937813-05-2, $15.95

Based on almost two decades of exhaustive investigative study, this book is the most authoritative account of the May 4, 1970 killings at Kent State University. Choice Magazine called the book "as entertaining as the best detective fiction and as analytical and well documented as the best journalism or scholarship." The North Ridge edition is an expanded edition of the book, originally published by Prometheus Books. It has been used at nine universities.

SHOT ON THIS SITE: A TRAVELER'S GUIDE TO THE PLACES AND LOCATIONS USED TO FILM FAMOUS MOVIES AND TELEVISION SHOWS
ISBN 0-8065-1647-X, $15.95

The Chicago Tribune felt "there's enough material here to keep even the most jaded movie and trivia buffs occupied for hours." "Actually," the Atlanta Constitution demurred, "you don't even have to be a film buff to get a kick out of leafing through the entries." "This welcome book," opined the Los Angeles Times, "gives specifics about where some 900 movies and 90 TV shows were filmed." The book is published by Kensington Books, and available through North Ridge Books.
