Hell's Angels: Taking Care of Business is the ground-breaking book that launched Yves Lavigne's investigative series into the Hell's Angels. This book traces the growth of the Hell's Angels organization from the early, rowdy "club" to the insidious, far-reaching superstructure that now exists. Today's Angels still value the grinning death's head, but they keep it for funerals, runs, initiations, and laying heavies. Angels, like the undercover policemen who tail them, prefer street clothes to blend with their surroudings. In a world of drugs, prostitution and pornography, the shadow the Angels' wings falls on all of us. Hell's Angels: Taking care of Business is a fascinating and startling read.

Hells Angels at War

Author: Yves Lavigne
Publisher: Harpercollins Canada
ISBN: 0002000245
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Political Science

In his bestselling Hells Angels: Taking Care of Business, Yves Lavigne blew the lid off an organization that few knew anything about beyond the romanticized image of tough guys, their Harleys and their women. His equally successful sequel, Hells Angels: Into the Abyss, got up close and personal with the Angels, on an exclusive ride with an FBI informant inside the gang. Now, in this third book in his trilogy, Lavigne exposes the slick, technology-savvy new breed of Hells Angels and how they're becoming a very real threat to society in Canada, the US and throughout the world. Even more importantly, he reveals just how powerless law enforcement agencies are to stop what is equivalent to a multi-million dollar corporation that just happens to have the number-one market share in the illegal drugs industry. In 1998, Hells Angels turned 50, doubling in size in the last decade. Yet, most politicians, police officers and the public still haven't responded to the fact that the gang has evolved into a major organized crime force, capable of manipulating both the legal system and the media with deadly professional ease. With his usual meticulous research and insider's knowledge, Lavigne reports on the latest from the Angels' front lines: the purchase of hotels, real estate and businesses for the express use of laundering money; the growing global network of chapters; and the ineffectual response of law enforcement agencies to the escalating violence, gang rivalry and crime. Featuring new and dramatic photographs, maps of club locations and Hells Angels documents, "Hells Angels at War" is both a revealing expose and a not-to-be ignored wake-up call to eliminate this evolving and even deadlier evil, now.

Death Dealers

Author: Yves Lavigne
Publisher: Harpercollins Canada
ISBN: 0006385389
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Political Science

When Good Guy, Bad Guy was first published in 1991, it revealed a shocking picture of a drug underworld operated by vicious gangs, a world where the mob had been shoved aside by a deadly proliferation of ultra-violent ethnic gangs. Seven years later, as headlines scream of innocent people murdered by Hells Angels in Montreal and Asian Triad gangs in Toronto, the drug battle has become an all-out war. Completely revised and updated with frightening new information on the current state of the illegal drug trade in North America, Good Guy, Bad Guy is now Death Dealers, a hard-hitting front-line expose from foremost criminal gang expert and bestselling author, Yves Lavigne. Death Dealers is a gritty, street-level view of how gangs are willing to stop at nothing to grab their cut of the world's $500-billion-a-year illegal drug market -- and who pays the price for their greed. Using his extraordinary connections and years of investigative journalism experience, Yves Lavigne hunts the hunted, from an increasingly violent Chinatown in Toronto to the lair of New York's most successful heroin dealer and beyond to the shark-infested waters on the Florida coast. Black street gangs in Los Angeles, Colombians, Vietnamese street gangs, Jamaican posses, prison gangs and the ever-present biker gangs are all part of Lavigne's world, where paranoia, terror and human carnage are the norm. At the same time, he reveals the high-tech world of the crime fighters, former Green Berets and Vietnam vets, who would like to even the score. A gripping chronicle that draws chilling conclusions, Death Dealers is a masterful work of true crime.

Business Ethics Case Studies and Selected Readings

Author: Marianne Jennings
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9780324657746
Release Date: 2008-02-25
Genre: Business & Economics

The #1 text on the market, BUSINESS ETHICS: CASE STUDIES AND SELECTED READINGS, 6th Edition adeptly approaches the difficult subject of ethics by getting behind the decision-making process of business leaders today -- from the most prominent players to everyday professionals. Professor Jennings demonstrates that business leaders often express an internal struggle about questionable decisions and behavior, but then sometimes choose the path that proves most costly for them and their companies. In this decision-making process, Jennings reveals what may have gotten in the way of what -- in hindsight -- would seem like a clear choice: Sometimes business leaders are exploring pure personal gumption; sometimes they ignore or miss the analysis of the long-term effects of their decisions; and sometimes they are giving in to pressures such as compensation, a tough boss, or a culture that does not support dissent. Through real-world examples, Jennings helps students dissect what makes people cross lines they would not ordinarily cross. A combination of short and long cases, readings, hypothetical situations, and current ethical dilemmas, BUSINESS ETHICS provides a thorough training and thought-provoking experience on business ethics. Applying theory to real-world practice, it reinforces a vital sense of values in future business leaders.
