Clarence Darrow was one of the most legendary and influential trial lawyers the world has ever seen. Famous for his ability to turn seemingly unwinnable cases his way through his oratory and his uncanny skill at reading the mood of a jury, he was a man whose work inspired impassioned campaigns against the death penalty as well as lavish Hollywood movies. But, despite his success, he also had a troubled life outside the court, and some of his most famous cases came after he himself had been put on trial. Now award-winning writer Donald McRae revisits the three greatest trials which secured Darrow's near-mythic reputation and brings them vividly to life. The public themes which Darrow confronted still resonate powerfully today: sex and murder, religion and science, racism, the media and the law. Written with great intimacy, drama and immediacy, this is a sweeping story which offers piercing insight into one of the most towering and controversial personalities of the twentieth century.

Women Who Dare Intrigue, Danger and Passion One summer in New Orleans— Madeline Johnson is determined to uncover the truth about her brother. His last words—a cry for help on Maddie's answering machine—contradict what the New Orleans police are telling her. The cops seem in a real hurry to close the case, and the one detective who may be able to help is about to go on vacation. Alex Batiste's vacation plans are set. His daughter's come to stay with him and, along with the usual teenage problems, the girl—encouraged by Alex's ex-wife—has a bad attitude toward her father. So police work is the furthest thing from Alex's mind. But it's not that easy to get the beautiful Maddie out of his mind. Apart from her persistence and her unwavering belief in her brother—traits he admires—she seems to know all the right things to say and do around his daughter. Now helping Maddie is becoming more than simply doing his job.

That Old Devil Called God Again

That Old Devil Called God Again

This book gives us a chance to carry out a thorough virus scan, to discover who we really are, be given the chance to think anew and choose our beliefs.

Religion has brought the world to the brink of meltdown. That Old Devil Called God Again shows how defenceless we are from the invading power of religious indoctrination, to which Jesus fell victim. From childhood, like unprotected computers, the predatory viruses of other people’s beliefs and dogmas invade us until we emerge as adults unaware of how we have been infected. The Rwandan genocide, Omagh, 9/11, suicide bombings, Westgate and the Syrian carnage join the indictments against 'God'. Religion stands charged with contaminating our cultural development and impeding our moral aspirations. This book gives us a chance to carry out a thorough virus scan, to discover who we really are, be given the chance to think anew and choose our beliefs. The toxic nature of religious teaching is exposed and our basic assumptions and ideas are challenged with fresh and radical thinking that empowers and liberates us to become more fully human. While laying siege to religion, this book yet presents a passionate and positive call for a full and creative engagement with life and a vibrant spirituality.

Have you ever experienced the repeated delays, pressures, and disappointment associated with Saturn's transits and cycles? This classic astrology text, revered by both beginning and professional astrologers alike, offers a fresh perspective on how to handle the influence of this much-maligned astrological symbol. World-famous astrologer and Jungian analyst Liz Greene brings her unique psychological approach to Saturn, showing us how the frustrating experiences connected to this planet can be turned into opportunities for greater insight and meaning in our lives. Saturn, she says, symbolizes a psychic process--one that allows us to utilize the experience of pain for self-discovery and greater understanding. Greene traces the character of this most important planet through sign, house, aspect, synastry, and its role in mythology. She offers a brilliant analysis of Saturn to reveal the face of the "Initiator" who, for the price of our honesty, offers us greater consciousness, self-understanding, and, eventually, freedom. This 35th anniversary edition includes a new foreword by leading astrologer and author Robert Hand.

This classic astrology text, revered by beginners and professional astrologers alike, is now available in a Weiser Classics edition. "The most important single contribution of twentieth-century astrology is that astrology is not a map of one's fixed destiny but is a potential map of the unfolding of the authentic, higher self." --Robert Hand, from the foreword Saturn's darker persona is recognized universally in myth and fairytale. In this classic astrology text, renowned astrologer and Jungian analyst Liz Greene offers a fresh perspective on how to handle the influence of this much-maligned astrological symbol. In Saturn, Greene shows us how the frustrating experiences connected to this planet can be turned into opportunities for greater insight and meaning in our lives. Saturn, she says, symbolizes a psychic process--one that allows us to utilize the experience of pain for self-discovery and a more fulfilling and complete life. Greene retraces Saturn's character through sign, house, aspect, and synastry in a brilliant analysis that reveals his other face: that of the initiator who, for the price of our honesty with ourselves, offers us greater consciousness, self-understanding, and, eventually, freedom.
