PAUL M. BARRETT I'm an assistant managing editor and senior feature writer at Bloomberg Businessweek. I've written two other books: American Islam: The Struggle for the Soul of a Religion and The Good Black: A True Story of Race in America. I'm currently writing my 4th book about the fascinating legal battle in Ecuador pitting big oil against indigenous people and campesinos, not to mention a one of a kind American plaintiffs lawyer. Coming from Crown in winter 2014.

I live in Brooklyn with my wife Julie and our excellent dachshund Beau.

“One of the largest problems in getting a new design accepted by an established manufacturer is not just the ‘not invented here’ syndrome, but also the ‘we don’t have the tooling’ syndrome. Why invent something new when you can simply modify what you have?”
Paul M. Barrett, Glock: The Rise Of America's Gun

“Today the Glock is on the hip of more American police officers than any other handgun.”
