The Beast of Birkenshaw: Life of Serial Killer Peter Manuel (Serial Killers Book 7)

by Jack Smith

Some serial killers seem surreal, as if it's almost impossible to believe that an individual could do such horrific crimes. The Beast of Birkenshaw, a.k.a. Peter Manuel, was such an individual man.

Peter Manuel was Scotland’s first serial killer and certainly the country’s most notorious mass murderer. But he was so much more than that. As well as the horrific nature of his murders, which killed men, women, and children, he possessed a constant arrogance and a swift intelligence that often allowed him to operate right underneath the noses of the local law enforcement. Always happy to embarrass the police in Glasgow and the surrounding area, he waged a lifelong battle of wits which ended with him being hanged.

But the legend of Peter Manuel lives on. He had a...

Solving Cold Cases - Volume 2: True Crime Stories That Took Years to Crack

by Andrew J. Clark

More Chilling Cold Cases Solved! Read the fascinating true crime stories that were solved years later thanks to modern technologies and investigation techniques

Solving a criminal investigation is never as simple as it looks on television. With so many steps between the initial crime and the moment of conviction, the potential for a case to remain unsolved is always dangerously high. As well as those hard-to-solve minor crimes like petty theft, even the biggest and most complicated crimes have the possibility of becoming stuck at some point. So much of the process can depend upon luck that it should be no surprise to see that detectives and investigators often struggle to find that single eureka moment, that one instance of divine inspiration that might help them solve the cri...

Skull and Bones: America's Most Powerful and Mysterious Secret Society

by Conrad Bauer

Skulls and Bones, a secret society that could easily be the most powerful in America
Nobody likes the idea that there are hugely influential powers operating behind closed doors. For centuries, there have been stories about secret societies that control everything we do and dominate the highest echelons of politics and business. Whether it’s the Illuminati, the Masons, or the Knights Templar, it’s not uncommon for people to believe that there might be a cabal of people who conspire together for their own nefarious purposes. But while these earlier societies might be clouded in mystery and intrigue, there are modern equivalents of which we know much, much more.
One of these mysterious societies is known simply as Skull and Bones. A clandestine group who gather at one of the...

The Health of People: How the social sciences can improve population health

by Campaign for Social Science,

As Britain ages amid austerity, more and more people will suffer from long-term health conditions.  Obesity and diabetes are on the rise.  Mental health problems are widespread.  Tobacco and addictions are well-known killers.  Each condition brings high costs, both financial and social.  Meanwhile, budgets for the NHS, social care and public health are being squeezed.  Despite this potential crisis, new opportunities are emerging to support both healthcare providers and the population.  Advances in understanding will change how behaviour can prevent and mitigate ill health.  Our approach to health must become more ‘social’. The Health of People – a report compiled by the Campaign for Social Sciences – investigates a range of ways to cut the cost of health interventions and...

Ten years after the 2008 economic crisis, and amidst a digital revolution that is intensifying the development race, the European Union, and especially Central and Eastern Europe, are ardently searching for their development priorities.Against this background, by relying on a cross-national perspective, the authors reflect upon the developmental challenges of the moment, such as sustainable development, reducing inequality, ensuring social cohesion, and driving the digital revolution. They particularly focus on the relation between the less-developed Eastern part of the EU and its more developed Western counterpart, and discuss the consequences of this development gap in deta...

Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.Unjust Conditions follows the lives and labors of poor mothers in rural Peru, richly documenting the ordeals they face to participate in mainstream poverty alleviation programs.

Looking beyond these statistics reveals a host of hidden costs for the ...

Youthquake 2017: The Rise of Young Cosmopolitans in Britain (Palgrave Studies in Young People and Politics)

by James Sloam

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book investigates the reasons behind the 2017 youthquake – which saw the highest rate of youth turnout in a quarter of a century, and an unprecedented gap in youth support for Labour over the Conservative Party – from both a comparative and a theoretical perspective. It compares youth turnout and party allegiance over time and traces changes in youth political participation in the UK since the onset of the 2008 global financial crisis – from austerity, to the 2016 EU referendum, to the rise of Corbyn – up until the June 2017 General Election. The book identifies the rise of cosmopolitan values and left-leaning attitudes amongst Young Millennials, particularly students and young women. The situation in the UK is also contrasted...

Indigenous Life Projects and Extractivism: Ethnographies from South America (Approaches to Social Inequality and Difference)

by Vindal Ødegaard, Cecilie

Exploring indigenous life projects in encounters with extractivism, the present open access volume discusses how current turbulences actualise questions of indigeneity, difference and ontological dynamics in the Andes and Amazonia. While studies of extractivism in South America often focus on wider national and international politics, this contribution instead provides ethnographic explorations of indigenous politics, perspectives and worlds, revealing loss and suffering as well as creative strategies to mediate the extralocal. Seeking to avoid conceptual imperialism or the imposition of exogenous categories, the chapters are grounded in the respective authors’ long-standing field research. The authors examine the reactions (from resistance to accommodation), consequences (from anticipat...

"Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People": And Other Myths About Guns and Gun Control

by Dennis A. Henigan

Debunking the lethal logic behind the pervasive myths that have framed the gun control debateThe gun lobby’s remarkable success in using engaging slogans to frame the gun control debate has allowed it to block lifesaving gun legislation for decades. But is there any truth to this bumper-sticker logic? Dennis Henigan exposes the mythology and misguided thinking at the core of these pro-gun catchphrases, which continue to have an outsized influence on public attitudes toward guns and gun control. He counters the gun lobby’s messages by weaving together the most compelling current research and insights drawn from the grim reality of deadly gunfire in our homes and communities. Henigan charts a new path toward ending the American nightmare of gun violence.Myths Include:“When guns are out...

Artistry in Bronze: The Greeks and Their Legacy XIXth International Congress on Ancient Bronzes

by Jens M Daehner

The papers in this volume derive from the proceedings of the nineteenth International Bronze Congress, held at the Getty Center and Villa in October 2015 in connection with the exhibition Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World. The study of large-scale ancient bronzes has long focused on aspects of technology and production. Analytical work of materials, processes, and techniques has significantly enriched our understanding of the medium. Most recently, the restoration history of bronzes has established itself as a distinct area of investigation. How does this scholarship bear on the understanding of bronzes within the wider history of ancient art? How do these technical data relate to our ideas of styles and development? How has the material itself affected ancient an...

by Trinidad Rico

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. Offering key insights into critical debates on the construction, management and destruction of heritage in Muslim contexts, this volume considers how Islamic heritages are constructed through texts and practices which award heritage value. It examines how the monolithic representation of Islamic heritage (as a singular construct) can be enriched by the true diversity of Islamic heritages and how endangerment and vulnerability in this type of heritage construct can be re-conceptualized. Assessing these questions through an interdisciplinary lens including heritage studies, anthropology, history, conservation, religious studies and archaeology, this pivot covers global and local examples including heritage case studies from Indonesia, Egypt...

Vikings: Myths, Legends & History

Wildly swinging axes and swords upon majestic boats, Vikings have been a long-appreciated symbol of rage and power. They have been romanticized as overbearingly-manly warriors that plunder, loot and pillage villages all for the sake of dominance.They’ve always been in modern media, but where did they come from? How did they start? What brought them to the apex of influence that still makes them relevant up to this day?Their colorful history starts in the form of a migration. These warriors started out as nomads looking for new places to inhabit to prolong their lineage. Mainly travelling by sea, they’ve been defined as pirates that went from shore to shore, trading and occupying the villages that lived on the patches of land they would visit. Said to have hailed from the countries of S...

Maritime Spatial Planning: past, present, future

Countries across the globe are beginning to implement maritime spatial plans; however the authors of this collection have identified several key questions that are emerging from this growing body of MSP experience.
