Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) August 7, 2006
The DPPstore, launched just eight months ago, features eBooks by new authors and the best eBooks from self and independent publishers.
The DPPstore (http://www.dppstore.com) continues to build one book at a time and this week is pleased to announce the addition of Unacceptable: The Federal Response to Hurricane Katrina by Walter M. Brasch, Ph.D. (self-published, 2006) to its virtual bookshelves.
In his book, Brasch makes a powerful indictment of bungling at all levels by the United States government. But, says Brasch, “it is also a look at overwhelming excellence by many organizations to respond to the disaster and to help the people.” He especially singles out the Coast Guard.
“With an unofficial motto of ‘Act now, get permission later,’ the Coast Guard knew what it had to do and, against great odds, performed remarkably well,” says Brasch, noting, “Although it’s under the Department of Homeland Security, the Coast Guard seemed not to be bound by the bureaucratic incompetence of its parent organization.”
Walter M. Brasch, Ph.D., a former newspaper reporter and editor, is a university professor of journalism and mass communications, and a syndicated newspaper columnist. He is also the author of 15 other books, most of them focusing upon the fusion of historical and contemporary social issues.
Listed in Who’s Who in America, Contemporary Authors, and Who’s Who in the Media, Dr. Brasch earned an A.B. in sociology, an M.A. in journalism, and a Ph.D. in mass communication/ journalism, with cognate areas in American government and language and culture studies from The Ohio University.
