Crime, Disorder, and the Risorgimento

Mar 2002
Paperback

Review
"Hughes's work constitutes an important contribution to understanding the process of formation and consolidation of the modern police force..." Journal of Modern History

"...he expands our knowledge of the politics of policing in the nineteenth century and lends empirical support to John Davis' argument about the extent to which the relationship between politics and policing was a casual factor in the making of a united Italy....a welcome contribution beyond the series in which it appears..." Italian Politics and Society

At no point does the wealth of archival material he mined, or his close examination of the style and fluctuating intensity of Bolognese crime and disorder, obscure the core theses he presents....the work is finely written and the chapter-ending conclusions are models of clarity. This monograph...

Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer
Stephen G. Michaud
1928704174
April 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Michaud and Aynesworth spent weeks interwiewing psycho sex killer Bundy before Florida authorities executed him. Bundy's story was detailed by the duo in their chilling volume The Only Living Witness (Classics Returns, LJ 11/1/99). The best portion of that title was the excerpts from those interviews. Originally released in 1989, the book contains the full transcripts from those conversations. Without ever admitting that he performed any of these acts (he maintained his innocence until hours before his execution), Bundy offers a matter-of-fact, third-person account of how "someone" performing kidnappings, rapes, and murders might go about it and how that person might act under these circumstances. His frankness offers perhaps the most unfettered look into the mind of a serial killer, and many of his observations...

Book Review
From the mountains of Southern France where he currently lives and works, pop artist R. Crumb makes a grand entrance back to the publishing world with The R. Crumb Handbook. Part biography, part comic book, and part media critique, the latest Crumb book is a feast indeed. In addition to numerous reprints of Crumb comic hits like Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural, the book also features new works by Crumb, including a hilarious dialogue between the artist and his wife. (Both Crumb's wife and daughter are comic book artists.) Fans already familiar with Crumb’s comic book work will rejoice at the glossy reprints of Crumb oil paintings and sculptures, complete with gallery-owner narratives about working with the artist. There are also record covers reprints that Crumb has drawn over the years, as well as a CD of...

I Was Howard Hughes
Steven Carter
1582343756
August 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Carter offers a cheeky look at the relationship between biographer and subject in his sly debut novel about an unconventional, egotistical author who takes on a Howard Hughes book project and finds himself identifying with his bizarre subject as his own existence begins to crumble in a disturbingly similar fashion. Aldon Reece is the biographer whose agent talks him into doing a book about Hughes, modeled after Reece's unconventional portrait of Herman Melville in Melville and the Whale, an offbeat unexpected bestseller. In his introduction, Reece offers some snide comments about being snubbed for a significant book award, then launches into his account of Hughes's life, using the same strange format he employed with the Melville bio. An odd, ponderous collection of (mostly fictional) quotes by and about Hughes...

From Publishers Weekly
In this volume, Puleo, a contributor to American History magazine, sets out to determine whether the collapse of a molasses tank that sent a tidal wave of 2.3 million gallons of the sticky liquid through Boston's North End and killed 21 people was the work of Italian anarchists or due to negligence by the tank's owner, United States Industrial Alcohol. Getting into the minds of the major players in the disaster-USIA suits, victims, witnesses, North End residents, politicians-he re-creates not only the scene but also the social, political and economic environments of the time that made the disaster more than just an industrial accident. While the collapse's aftermath is tragic, the story itself is not exactly gripping. More interesting are the tidbits of Boston's and America's history, such as the importance of...
