The tumultuous alley of this rich and intricate novel (first published in Arabic in 1959) is inhabited by a delightful Egyptian family, but is also the setting for a second, hidden, and more daring narrative: the spiritual history of humankind. The men and women of a modern Cairo neighborood unwittingly reenact the lives of their holy ancestors: from the feudal lord who disowns one son for diabolical pride and puts another to the test, to the savior of a succeeding generation who frees his people from bondage. This powerful novel confirms again the richness and variety of Mahfouz's storytelling and his status as "the single most important writer in modern Arabic literature" (Newsweek).

Crime, Justice and the Media examines and analyses the relationship between the media and crime, criminals and the criminal justice system. This expanded and fully updated third edition considers how crime and criminals have been portrayed by the media throughout history, applying different theoretical perspectives to the way crime, criminals and justice are reported. It also includes a new chapter that looks at the influence of film and the cinema on crime and justice. The third edition of Crime, Justice and the Media focuses on the media representation of a range of different areas of crime and criminal justice, including: new media technology, e.g. social network sites; moral panics over specific crimes and criminals, e.g. youth crime, cybercrime, paedophilia; media portrayal of victims of crime and criminals; how the media represent criminal justice agencies, e.g. the police and prison service. This book offers a clear, accessible and comprehensive analysis of theoretical thinking on the relationship between the media, crime and criminal justice and a detailed examination of how crime, criminals and others involved in the criminal justice process are portrayed by the media. With exercises, questions and further reading in every chapter, this book encourages students to engage with and respond to the material presented, thereby developing a deeper understanding of the links between the media and criminality.

Ein großes Epos über die schillerndste Verbrecherszene der Nachkriegszeit. Wien, März 1938, »Anschluss« Österreichs ans Deutsche Reich. Am Tag, als halb Wien am Heldenplatz seinem neuen Führer zujubelt, raubt eine Bande jugendlicher Kleinganoven, die sich darauf spezialisiert hat, Wohnungen zu »evakuieren«, einen stadtbekannten Nazi aus. Sieben Jahre lang müssen die Kleinkriminellen daraufhin als sogenannte Kapos für die »Aufrechterhaltung des Betriebs« in den KZs Dachau und Mauthausen sorgen und wachsen so zu Schwerverbrechern heran, die lernen, dass der Unterschied zwischen Mensch und Tier eine Illusion ist. Zurück in der österreichischen Hauptstadt übernimmt die Bande um Ferdinand Krutzler die Wiener Unterwelt. Mit ungekannter Brutalität nutzt sie ihre Macht nicht zuletzt, um ehemalige Nazi-Widersacher aus dem Weg zu räumen. Aber der eingeschworene Zusammenhalt täuscht. Zunehmend verlieren sie einander in verräterischen Verstrickungen und verhängnisvollen Liebschaften. So lange, bis sie ihren Ehrenkodex aufgeben und aus Freunden unerbittliche Feinde werden. Inspiriert durch wahre Begebenheiten, erzählt mit viel schwarzem Humor und dennoch großer Empathie: David Schalko ist mit seinem Verbrecher-Epos »Schwere Knochen« ein fulminanter, einzigartiger Roman über die österreichische Nachkriegsgesellschaft gelungen – und ein faszinierender Einblick in das Innere von Menschen, deren Seelen durch den Nationalsozialismus zerstört wurden.

It is 1980, and the security of the American Embassy in Bangkok is under threat - from one of its own... Diplomat Axel Trink's career is tainted with wrongdoings and an obsession with gaining revenge on his boss, Josephine Bateman, who years earlier took advantage of him to jump-start her own Foreign Service career. This obsession takes a deadly turn when Trink gets involved with local terrorists and gangsters. His life and career are already at risk when he falls for a beautiful Thai terrorist and absconds with C-4 explosive and a cache of drugs intended to finance a coup d' tat; all in the name of revenge. Will Axel succeed with his revenge plot and flee to paradise or will his misdeeds come back to haunt him? Bangkok provides the ideal backdrop for the unraveling of a man who has sworn to protect the American flag -- but who instead takes the deadly paths of deceit and wrongdoing.

James 'Whitey Bulger is the last of the old-fashioned gangsters. A polished, sophisticated psychopath, Bulger's Boston reign of fear lasted 20 years – he was second only to Osama bin Laden on the FBI's most wanted list. Captured after 16 years in hiding, he now sits in a maximum security prison awaiting trial on racketeering charges and 19 counts of murder. But Bulger will have his payback: at trial he has promised to lift the lid a toxic conspiracy of federal agents, cops, judges and politicians that helped enforce his rule. Combining first-rate reporting and the storytelling of a novelist, T.J. English has been writing about men like Bulger for over two decades. Here, in addition to coming face to face with Whitey, you'll discover hitman Joesph 'Mad Dog' Suliivan's favoured assassination method, you'll meet Eric Vassel, the Jamaican rudeboy who took on the Italian mob, you'll travel deep into the Mexican/American narcosphere as English takes his readers on a bloody but fascinating journey to the dark side of the American Dream.
