JOHN DILLINGER: Public Enemy: Americas Most Notorious Gangsters

JOHN DILLINGER - Public Enemy: Americas Most Notorious Gangsters In the period following World War 1, America enjoyed a period of extreme prosperity. The “Roaring Twenties” saw a boost in industry and production, as well as a new, more relaxed lifestyle. Americans indulged in hot jazz music, illegal speakeasies, and reckless spending. America could not go on giving credit to people who bought over-inflated stocks for companies that were over-producing their products. The bubble had to burst. London’s stock market crashed on September 20th, 1929, leading to a panic in America. Stocks were shaky, and the economy was on the verge of tanking. Despite numerous attempts to inject capital into stocks to save the economy, as was done during the 1907 crisis, the market still fluctuated uneasily. Individuals and companies alike began to sell their stock at a rapid rate. Outlaws like Bonnie and Clyde, and “Pretty Boy” Floyd became heroes in the eyes of the American people. These people rolled up to banks and demanded money; a feat that many destitute Americans dreamed they could do. The robbers were considered Robin Hood type characters; giving the evil, rich banks what they deserved after treating their customers so poorly. However, these thieves weren’t stealing from the rich ...

SUICIDE FOREST: The Mystery of Aokigahara: True Crime Stories

SUICIDE FOREST: The Mystery of Aokigahara: True Crime Stories

At the base of Mount Fuji lies a location with such a dark history that many people consider it too forbidden a topic to discuss. For over 70 years, Aokigahara, Japan has been a source of mystery for both investigators and paranormal researchers. This beautiful stretch of unkempt woodland, while maintaining the illusion of beauty, harbours a secret which few people are willing to acknowledge. Aokigahara, known to many as the Sea of Trees, is the suicide capital of Japan. Every year, hundreds of people visit the forest with no intention of ever leaving. People who no longer wish to be a part of this world find solace in the isolation of Aokigahara, and willingly take their own lives against its backdrop of chaotic forestry. However, the legend of Aokigahara goes a lot further that simply being alluring scenery for suicide. Its lore is rooted in ancient legend, literature and a historical association with death. Its impact on Japanese culture has been so prominent that Japanese officials rarely acknowledge the forest’s existence in an effort to disassociate it from its macabre infamy. But despite this, Aokigahara’s prominence in not just Japanese culture, but world over, cannot be understated.

Introduction to Electromagnetic Engineering (Dover Books on Electrical Engineering)

Introduction to Electromagnetic Engineering (Dover Books on Electrical Engineering)

This study of electromagnetic theory introduces students to a broad range of quantities and concepts, imparting the necessary vector analysis and associated mathematics and reinforcing its teachings with several elementary field problems. Based on circuit theory rather than on the classical force-relationship approach, the text uses the theory of electric circuits to provide a system of experiments already familiar to the electrical engineer; a series of field concepts are then introduced as a logical extension of circuit theory. Virtually unobtainable elsewhere, this text was written by a prominent professor whose recognition includes the prestigious IEEE Electromagnetics Award. It is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a background in calculus and circuit theory. 176 Figures. 9 Tables.

PABLO ESCOBAR: NARCOS KING: The World’s Most Infamous Gangster

PABLO ESCOBAR: NARCOS KING: The World’s Most Infamous Gangster

PABLO ESCOBAR: NARCOS KING The city of Medellin is the second-largest in the South American nation of Columbia. It is nestled in the Aburra Valley in the Andes ranges. On December 2 1992 citizens of the district of Los Olivos heard gunshots from the rooftops. They saw two men running across the orange – tiled roofs, pursued by a group of armed and uniformed men. A short gunfight ensued. Soon eight armed men, officers of the National Columbian Police, posed for photographs, brandishing weapons and smiling over the bloody corpse of a 44 year old man. That man was Pablo Emilia Escobar Gaviria, known in the annals of infamy simply as Pablo Escobar. He had been the most powerful drug lord in Colombia and one of the most notorious in the world. He was so pernicious that for a time he was number one on the hit list of the United States. He controlled the cocaine trade in the United States. He used wealth and terror to dominate Columbian politics and destroy his enemies. He openly flaunted his fantastic wealth, believing that he was untouchable. But there he was, a bare-footed, bloody corpse, his executioners shouting ‘Viva Columbia! Viva Columbia!’ But who was this man, and what was his story?

THE INNOCENCE PROJECT: The Search For Truth

THE INNOCENCE PROJECT: The Search For Truth

The Innocence Project - The Search For Truth Founded in 1992, The Innocence Project is an organization like no other. The Innocence Project is a declaration of understanding that the United States legal system is far from perfect. Innocent until proven guilty, right? What if there are some who are “proven” guilty, but may still be innocent. That is what the Innocence Project was created to discover. A non-profit that seeks to exonerate those criminals who are wrongly convicted mainly through the use of DNA evidence, The Innocent Project has served dutifully over the years. Since its founding, The Innocence Project has had 351 wrongful convictions overturned. 20 of these convictions overturned were for people serving time on death row. Along with this, the Innocence Project has helped to find 150 actual perpetrators of the crimes they investigated. In 1992, the United States Senate received information from a study that they had commissioned in which they learned that over 70% of wrongful convictions came from incorrect eye witness identification. The Innocence project was originally created within the government in conjunction with the Benjamin N Cardozo School of Law. In 2003, The Innocence Project transitioned to a 501c3 non profit organization status, but they still work v...

THE YORKSHIRE RIPPER: Britain's Most Notorious Serial Killer: Crimes of Pure Evil

THE YORKSHIRE RIPPER: Britain's Most Notorious Serial Killer: Crimes of Pure Evil

Not since the crimes of Jack the Ripper in 1888 has a British murderer made such a lasting impact on the world. The Yorkshire Ripper holds one of the highest body counts in recent memory; 13 murders and a string of other attacks which would later yield additional deaths and tragedy. The frequency at which Peter Sutcliffe mercilessly took lives is something which few modern serial killers will ever surpass. What makes Peter Sutcliffe a figure of terror is the fact that he is simply a working class everyman, but one who harboured a violent compulsion he was unable to control. The fact that the Yorkshire Ripper evaded capture for six years, despite being at the forefront of investigations, is a testament to his ability to hide in plain sight. It is Peter Sutcliffe’s banality which adds an additional layer of fear to an already terrifying character. The Yorkshire Ripper: Britain's Most Notorious Serial Killer is part of the Crimes of Pure Evil Series, which looks at the dark truth of some of the world's most horrific serial murderers. "An uncomfortable but fascinating read" "A must-read book for anyone interested in criminal psychology" "A portrait of pure evil..."
