America's First- A History of America's Oldest Continuously Operating Sheriff's Department
1 America's First- A History of America's Oldest Continuously Operating Sheriff's Department
United Book Press 2017 First Paperback New 
“America’s First”, begins when the colonists landed in March 1634; and not until 1637/8 was a sheriff appointed. The book delves into the next 378 years, and explores the history of how a sheriff was selected, weapons and punishments administered during those times, and how the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office has evolved into the entity it is today and the pride the agency has in being “America’s First”. For law enforcement enthusiasts, history lovers, current and former residents of St. Mary’s County, this book will carry you through the years and show just how this small office evolved into the progressive and modern agency it is today.

Some notes, underlining and highlights throughout. 227 pp. including index. Brown covers with orange titling. Strong binding. "The Professional Stranger introduces an ethnographic perspective on the study of human life. Ethnography's goal is defined as the acquisition of an ability to interpret events as do members of some group. The perspective is further explored by contrasting ethnographyu with more traditional hypothesis testing approaches in the social sciences. Numerous examples are used, drawn for the most part from the author's field experiences in South India and with urban U.S. heroin addicts. While not intended as a methodological cookbook, several problems in ethnographic interfviewing and observation are discussed. Throughout, there is a concern with the difficult task of providing systematic documentation of key ethnographic conclusions."Trade Paperback. Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall..
