When Paul Singh left India to flee a land filled with corruption, he chose America to make his home, a country he admired for its freedom and justice. Decades after his arrival, his idealistic vision of our nation died while being targeted and framed by the very government he trusted. Assured by the FDA that the most widely used IUD in Europe was approved for use here, he continued using it for two years while the FDA and DOJ tracked his every move to build a case against him for using the device. Singh knew nothing about this until a team of armed agents raided his office and expelled undressed female patients from their exam rooms. The FDA then fabricated documents, destroyed and suppressed evidence, intimidated witnesses, and coerced him into signing a plea deal by threatening to imprison his wife, as well, giving him two hours to sign it...or else. Singh has since learned how widespread corruption in our criminal justice system is, with prosecutors who will lie and incarcerate innocent citizens without due process, to further their careers. Singh cites various statutes, case laws and books by top-level insiders to prove how laws were broken by corrupt prosecutors. He shows how our vision of America based on ideals of our founding fathers, and the reality of American justice are no longer aligned. Guilty at Gunpoint with its Companion Guide book, The Death of the Rule of Law should be required reading for every law student and anyone interested in the way justice is administered in the United States.

From Guilt to Shame

From Guilt to Shame

Why has shame recently displaced guilt as a dominant emotional reference in the West? After the Holocaust, survivors often reported feeling guilty for living when so many others had died, and in the 1960s psychoanalysts and psychiatrists in the United States helped make survivor guilt a defining feature of the "survivor syndrome." Yet the idea of survivor guilt has always caused trouble, largely because it appears to imply that, by unconsciously identifying with the perpetrator, victims psychically collude with power. In From Guilt to Shame, Ruth Leys has written the first genealogical-critical study of the vicissitudes of the concept of survivor guilt and the momentous but largely unrecognized significance of guilt's replacement by shame. Ultimately, Leys challenges the theoretical and empirical validity of the shame theory proposed by figures such as Silvan Tomkins, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, and Giorgio Agamben, demonstrating that while the notion of survivor guilt has depended on an intentionalist framework, shame theorists share a problematic commitment to interpreting the emotions, including shame, in antiintentionalist and materialist terms.

The 'Lincoln Lawyer' grapples with a haunting case in a gripping thriller from bestselling author Michael Connelly. Mickey Haller gets the text 'Call me ASAP - 187', and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Suddenly, Mickey's not just trying to get his client off a murder charge, but there is a more personal connection: the victim was Gloria Dayton - his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow. Far from saving her, Haller may have been her downfall. Haunted by the ghosts of his own past, and with his own guilt or redemption on the line, he desperately needs to find out who Gloria really was and who, ultimately, was responsible for her death.

Is it ever truly possible to atone for killing someone? How far would you be willing to go to try? After the death of his son in a freak accident, DI Harlan Miller's life is spiralling out of control. He's drinking too much. His marriage and career are on the rocks. But things are about to get even worse. A booze-soaked night out and a single wild punch leave a man dead and Harlan facing a manslaughter charge. Fast-forward four years. Harlan's prison term is up, but life on the outside holds little promise. Divorced, alone, consumed with guilt, he thinks of nothing beyond atoning for the death he caused. But how do you make up for depriving a wife of her husband and two young boys of their father? Then something happens, something terrible, yet something that holds out a twisted kind of hope for Harlan – the dead man's youngest son is abducted. From that moment Harlan's life has only one purpose – finding the boy. So begins a frantic race against time that leads him to a place darker than anything he experienced as a policeman and a stark moral choice that compels him to question the law he once enforced. Praise for Ben Cheetham: 'Fast-moving action and lots of twists' The Times. 'An enthralling page-turner!' Relax and Read Reviews. 'An absolutely fantastic read!' Best British Crime Books.

From his own adolescence, when his allegiance was to punk rock, to his work as one of the essential voices of our time on music and culture at the New York Times and the New Yorker, Kelefa Sanneh has made a deep study of how our popular music unites and divides us. Distilling a career’s worth of knowledge, Sanneh explores the tribes music forms, and how its genres, shape-shifting across the years, give us a way to track larger forces and concerns. He debunks cherished myths, reappraises beloved heroes and upends familiar ideas of musical greatness, arguing that sometimes the best popular music isn’t transcendent: it expresses our grudges as well as our hopes, and is motivated by greed as well as inspiration. Throughout, race is a powerful touchstone: just as there’s always been a ‘Black’ audience and a ‘white’ audience (with some overlap) there is Black music and white music and a whole lot of expropriation. This is a book to shock and awe the deepest music nerd, and at the same time to work as a heady gateway drug for the uninitiated.

Bloodstains provide clues as to how a crime had been committed. When a speck of blood falls on a surface, it leaves a shape and stain. This is called bloodstain evidence. Each individual carries DNA that is unique to him or her, except for identical twins. With the help of bloodstains and saliva, as well as fingernails, an investigator can recover enough evidence to confirm whether a defendant is guilty or innocent of a crime. This book includes sidebars that further expand on the topic, as well as a further reading list and career information for readers interested in this intriguing STEM field.

The death penalty has inspired controversy for centuries. Raising questions regarding capital punishment rather than answering them, Questioning Capital Punishment offers the footing needed to allow for more informed consideration and analysis of these controversies. Acker edits judicial decisions that have addressed constitutional challenges to capital punishment and its administration in the United States and uses complementary materials to offer historical, empirical, and normative perspectives about death penalty policies and practices. This book is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes in criminal justice.

The telltale fingerprint. The DNA traced from a hair. Autopsies to establish cause and time of death. Ballistics to discover what gun was used. Tyre prints, dentals records, body fluids, maggots . . . It’s all the stuff of the modern police drama, of CSI, of twenty-first-century TV private eyes. But forensics is a very real and vital part of solving any crime. And with modern technologies, the science of forensics has never been more relevant. Sandra Mara delves into the fascinating world of the forensics investigator. She describes how the Garda’s Forensic Science Laboratory has cracked some of Ireland’s most notorious crimes, and she also looks at the forensics behind some of the most notorious crimes in the UK and US, such as cases like the Yorkshire Ripper and Harold “Dr Death” Shipman. She writes in – literally – forensic detail about the clues that have led to the high-profile arrests of murderers and criminals such as Gerald Barry, Sharon Collins and the Mulhall sisters. Sandra also speaks to some of the world’s top experts on forensic science to explore the next generation of technologies and techniques. From retina scanning to ballistics, toxicology to handwriting analysis, pathology to criminal profiling, the world of Dead Men Talk will draw you in and leave you breathless.
