The US postal service has moved from a largely ignored agency of the government to the frontline troops in the battle with terrorists sending anthrax and other unforeseen threats. This much misunderstood and maligned government agency manages to deliver millions of letters and packages each day through rain, snow and every imaginable kind of weather condition to every nook in the United States. This new book offers in-depth information on the background and the current issues of the Postal Service.
