by Jack Rosewood and Rebecca Lo

Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris, the Toolbox Killers, brought a level of terror that changed the way people carried out their daily lives. It was a time of innocence in California, where young girls could walk the streets or hitchhike along the freeways without a care or concern for their own safety, day or night.

They knew the type of victims they wanted, how they were going to abduct them, and what they were going to do to them.

Mein Side of the Story: Key World War 2 Addresses of Adolf Hitler

by Adolf Hitler and King, M

*145 Pages / 100 Illustrations*
Our system of justice grants 'prima facie' murderers, rapists and serial killers the opportunity to speak, does it not? Indeed, convicted killers like Charles Manson, David ‘Son of Sam’ Berkowitz, Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer and others have done televised interviews. Even the erroneous and dangerous ranting of Karl Marx is taught, no, glorified, in American Universities.

So, what is so gosh-darn dangerous about merely presenting the opinion of Hitler’s Germany? If that opinion is as evil and as fallacious as it is said to be, then why not present the full story, and then logically refute it? Truth is its own defense, so what is there to fear about simply hearing “the other side”? Do we really believe in “free speech” and ...

World War 1: A History From Beginning to End

Rhodes

by Antony Thomas

‘My ‘special relationship’ with Cecil Rhodes dates back to the late 1940s, when, as a small child growing up in Cape Town, I would be taken by my grandparents to the botanical gardens in the city centre to spend a few reverential moments before the statue of Cecil Rhodes.’So begins Anthony Thomas in a personal but objective account of a modern tragedy. Today the only monuments to the man are the scholarships awarded at Oxford University that bear his name and a civic centre in Bishop’s Stortford, the place of his birth.Thomas was prompted to work on his eight-part BBC documentary by African events in 1980, when the new nation of Zimbabwe was formed out of Southern Rhodesia, sixteen years after Zambia had reverted to its new name from Northern Rhodesia. The show aired in the month...

Christopher Columbus The Hero: Defending Columbus From Modern Day Revisionism

by Rafael

Once upon a time, Columbus was a hero...Sadly, that’s not the case today: Some people don't even know who he was, or what he did; while others claim he was a villain, and are advocating for the abolition of Columbus Day and everything he represented. Accusations vary from Columbus being a racist, a rapist, a genocidal maniac, and even that he ran a child sex slave ring. The question is, are these allegations true? And, where are the scholars correcting Columbus’ record? Unfortunately, some of the misinformation out there comes from “scholars;” and even those who defend Columbus, won't address the actual story either. In this book, the reader will learn who modern history revisionists claim Columbus was, and what he did, vs. the actual historical accounts, coming from the mouths of ...

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Chris Millard

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization an...

Interview with Hitler: An Educational Parody

by King, M

206 Pages / 500 Illustrations
The following "interview", though obviously a fictional event, accurately portrays what the ghost of Adolf Hitler would say in his defense if he could be interviewed today. His "answers" to WCBC talk-show host Ogre Winfield’s questions are mostly based upon an extensive and careful reading of his writings and speeches from 1921-1945, as well as those of his inner circle and others who knew him and survived the war.

One is at liberty to reflexively dismiss the veracity or accuracy of Hitler's version of events if one so chooses. However, what cannot be disputed is this: Hitler's responses to Ogre’s questions truly represent what he would say if such an interview could take place. Indeed, some of Hitler's answers are direct quotes taken f...
