How does the way in which a democratic polity mourn its losses shape its political outcomes? How might it shape those outcomes? American Mourning: Tragedy, Democracy, Resilience answers these questions with a critical study of American public mourning. Employing mourning as a lens through which to view the shortcomings of American democracy, it offers an argument for a tragic, complex, and critical mode of mourning that it contrasts with the nationalist, romantic, and nostalgic responses to loss that currently dominate and damage the polity. Offering new readings of key texts in Ancient political thought and American political history, it engages debates central to contemporary democratic theory concerned with agonism, acknowledgment, hope, humanism, patriotism, and political resilience. The book outlines new ways of thinking about and responding to terrorism, racial conflict, and the problems of democratic military return.

A new perspective on the roles of psychopathology, confirmation bias, false confessions, the media and internet (amongst other causes) of unjust accusations. Putting lack of empathy at the fore in terms of police, prosecutors and others, it considers a wide range of other psychopathological aspects of miscarriages of justice. By looking at three high profile cases, those of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito (Italy), Stefan Kiszko (UK) and Darlie Routier (USA)—the authors show that motive forces are a mind-set in which psychopathy (what they term ‘constitutional negative empathy’) may be present and the need to reinforce existing supposition or lose face plays a large part.

Reminiscent of The Silence of the Lambs, Kiss the Girls Goodnight is a frightening story of a wealthy real-life collector of girls. Everyone who knew him understood he was strange, but even his wife and three sons thought he was just a harmless eccentric who collected empty bottles and junk. No one was especially surprised when he built a bomb shelter attached to his basement. How could anyone, even his faithful wife, dying a slow death from cancer in the house above--imagine that the shelter was really a bleak dungeon where he imprisoned and raped the girls that he kidnapped? Even more chilling was the skill with which he selected his victims, enticed them into his house, and methodically enslaved them so that they were too frightened to defy him or try to escape. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Mark Gado was a detective with the city of New Rochelle Police Department in New York for 29 years as well as a federal agent assigned to a special DEA task force between 1997 and 1999. During that assignment, Gado received the International Award of Honor in New Orleans, LA. He was also named Investigator of the Year in 2000 and received dozens of other awards and special commendations during his career as a police officer. Gado’s first book, Killer Priest: The Crimes, Trial, and Execution of Father Hans Schmid was published by Praeger in March 2006. Killer Priest is the terrifying true story of the only Catholic priest in U.S. history to be executed for murder. Gado’s second book, Death Row Women: Murder, Justice, and the New York Press was also published by Praeger in November 2007. His 2011 short true crime eBook “MOM: The Killer” was a Kindle bestseller. Gado has been a writer for more than 20 years, and his award-winning work has appeared in numerous publications and on websites, among them Time Warner’s Crime Library. ABOUT THE SERIES From the best true crime authors in the business, many of whom have seen their books made into major motion pictures, comes CrimescapeTM--a new collection of compelling short nonfiction crime eBooks from leading independent eBook publisher RosettaBooks.

Interesting characters, an engrossing plot, situations that often teeter between life and death. But here’s the MacGuffin about true crime: What you’re reading actually happened. Sometimes truth really is more compelling than fiction. And that’s why you will enjoy reading Crimescape’s true crime series.” —Paul Alexander, # 1 bestselling author of the Kindle Singles Accused, Murdered and Homicidal

Gig Harbor, WA, a quiet Tacoma suburb, knew little of tragedy and scandal—until April 26, 2003. On that day David Brame, distraught over his impending divorce, shot his wife to death in a busy public parking lot. Then, with the couple’s two children only feet away, he turned the gun on himself. It was a horrific event, but Tacoma residents had special reason to be shocked. Many would have considered Brame their city’s least likely murderer. He was, after all, the chief of police. . . . But as the investigation unfolded, another side of Brame and his marriage came to light. Bizarre behavior. Years of abuse. Liaisons with multiple partners—and constant death threats. Here, in chilling detail, is the full story of Gig Harbor’s most violent and disturbing crime, meticulously pieced together by an award-winning newsman. Every secret is revealed—even the most confidential.
