Gang Busters Collection Vol 1 -...
Black Eye Entertainment
In 1935 when Phillips H. Lord created Gang Busters, the crime rate was high and confidence in law enforcement was low. Crimes were highly publicized, and their perpetrators were sometimes glamorized in Hollywood movies. With most radio crime programs dramatizing pulp-fiction stories, Lord decided to portray the procedure and practices of real-life law enforcement officers, basing his dramas on court records and police files.Quite often, at the close of the program, nationwide “clues” consisting of descriptions of suspects and contact information for the relevant police force or FBI, where given out. By May 1942, more than 250 criminals had been apprehended as a result of the clues on Gang Busters, reinforcing the series’ central message — the futility of crime! Later, popular TV programs, such as America’s Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries would make use of this same device. Enjoy 12 exciting Gang Busters episodes in this “true crime” collection!“The Case of John K. Giles, Escape Artist”“The Case of the Rumbold Vault Robbery”“The Case of the Kidnapped Paymaster”“The Case of the Horse-race Hijackers”“The Case of the Mound City Safe-crackers”“The Case of the New York Narcotics King”"The Case of the Quincy Killer”“The Case of the Park Avenue Pilferers”“The Case of the Tennessee Trigger-men”“The Case of the Cincinnati Narcotics Ring”“The Case of the Bandits Brothers”“The Case of the Appointment with Death”Show book
All Things Must Fight to Live -...
In All Things Must Fight to Live, Bryan Mealer takes readers on a harrowing two-thousand mile journey through Congo, where gun-toting militia still rape and kill with impunity. Amidst burnt-out battlefields where armies still wrestle for control, into the dark corners of the forests, and along the high savanna, where thousands have been slaughtered and quickly forgotten, Mealer searches for signs that Africa's most troubled state will soon rise from ruin. At once illuminating and startling, All Things Must Fight to Live is a searing portrait of an emerging country facing unimaginable upheaval and almost impossible odds, as well as an unflinching look at the darkness that continues to exist in the hearts of men. It is non-fiction at its finest-powerful, moving, necessary.Show book

“A feminist aesthetics text which bridges aesthetic theory, art and popular culture and acknowledges the evolving character of standards of beauty” (Teaching Philosophy). Emphasizing the human body in all of its forms, Beauty Unlimited expands the boundaries of what is meant by beauty, both geographically and aesthetically. Peg Zeglin Brand and an international group of contributors interrogate the body and the meaning of physical beauty in this multidisciplinary volume. This striking and provocative book explores the history of bodily beautification; the physicality of socially or culturally determined choices of beautification; the interplay of gender, race, class, age, sexuality, and ethnicity within and on the body; and the aesthetic meaning of the concept of beauty in an increasingly globalized world.Show book
