A Different Shade of Blue tells the history of female cops in America through the candid voices of 50 women on the Seattle Police Department. As one of the first cities to hire policewomen in 1912, Seattle provides the perfect backdrop to tell an amazing story - women's ongoing struggle nationwide to fit into the male-dominated police profession. Three generations of women share stories of great heroism, offer surprising views on affirmative action, and tell tales of discrimination and harrassment that reveal how even today men continue to treat their female co-workers as second-class citizens.Adam Eisenberg began his career as an entertainment industry freelance writer, covering extensive behind-the-scenes coverage of such movies as Ghostbusters, The Right Stuff, Terminator and Return of the Jedi, and feature interviews with George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Sigourney Weaver, Oliver Stone, Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise.Mr. Eisenberg spent seven years as a criminal prosecutor for the city of Seattle after graduating from the University of Washington School of Law, where he conducted hundreds of jury and bench trials and successfully argued a case before the Washington state Supreme Court that changed a statewide drunk driving law. Mr. Eisenberg has written freelance articles on homelessness and domestic violence, and produced televised public forums on relationship abuse for the City of Seattle Domestic Violence Council. He currently serves as Court Commissioner of the Municipal Court of Seattle, where he presides over criminal and traffic court.The book's website can be found here. (booksense)
