Inside this Book – Rebecca Hoffmann was summoned by the secret police on a rainy Monday in 1961. It began as an ordinary morning. Her husband drove her to work in his tan Trabant 500. The graceful old streets of central Berlin still had gaps from wartime bombing, except where new concrete buildings stood up like ill- matched false teeth. Hans was thinking about his job as he drove. ‘The courts serve the judges, the lawyers, the police, the government – everyone except the victims of crime,’ he said. ‘This is to be expected in Western capitalist countries, but under Communism the courts ought surely to serve the people. My colleagues don’t seem to realize that.’ Hans worked for the Ministry of Justice. ‘We’ve been married almost a year, and I’ve known you for two, but I’ve never met one of your colleagues,’ Rebecca said. ‘They would bore you,’ he said immediately. ‘They’re all lawyers.’ ‘Any women among them?’ ‘No. Not in my section, anyway.’ Hans’s job was administration: appointing judges, scheduling trials, managing courthouses. ‘I’d like to meet them, all the same.’ Hans was a strong man who had learned to rein himself in.

Inside this book –Edge of Eternity PDF Book by Ken Follett – George felt wary when he went to lunch with Larry Mawhinney at the Electric Diner. George was not sure why Larry had suggested this, but he agreed out of curiosity. He and Larry were the same age and had similar jobs: Larry was an aide in the office of Air Force Chief of Staff General Curtis LeMay. But their bosses were at loggerheads: the Kennedy brothers mistrusted the military. Larry wore the uniform of an air force lieutenant. He was all soldier: clean- shaven, with buzz-cut fair hair, his tie knotted tightly, his shoes shiny. ‘The Pentagon hates segregation,’ he said. George raised his eyebrows. ‘Really? I thought the army was traditionally reluctant to trust Negroes with guns.’ Mawhinney lifted a placatory hand. ‘I know what you mean. But, one, that attitude was always overtaken by necessity: Negroes have fought in every conflict since the War of Independence. And two, it’s history. The Pentagon today needs men of colour in the military. And we don’t want the expense and inefficiency of segregation: two sets of bathrooms, two sets of barracks, prejudice and hatred between men who are supposed to be fighting side by side.’ ‘Okay, I buy that,’ said George.
