The canards were cheap broadsheets and booklets that most often reported sensations, particularly murders. Made by members of the working and lower-middle classes and sold with great success to a vast and diverse audience, the canards deeply influenced and appealed to popular understandings of crime and punishment. Despite their importance in their day and their value to cultural studies, historians have paid them scant attention. In Murder in Parisian Streets Thomas Cragin provides an in-depth study of the production, sale, and content of the canards. He demonstrates their significance to nineteenth-century culture, even their role in determining the emerging tabloid's success. Cragin explores the incremental creation of textual meaning in the canards' authorship, production, distribution, and consumption. He exposes the power of oral traditions as well as modern marketing at work upon this popular news literature. The canards challenge our assumptions about the nineteenth century's revolution in print and reorient our understanding of cultural creation through textual construction.

The history of criminal justice in modern Germany has become a vibrant field of research, as demonstrated in this volume. Following an introductory survey, the twelve chapters examine major topics in the history of crime and criminal justice from Imperial Germany, through the Weimar and Nazi eras, to the early postwar years. These topics include case studies of criminal trials, the development of juvenile justice, and the efforts to reform the penal code, criminal procedure, and the prison system. The collection also reveals that the history of criminal justice has much to contribute to other areas of historical inquiry: it explores the changing relationship of criminal justice to psychiatry and social welfare, analyzes representations of crime and criminal justice in the media and literature, and uses the lens of criminal justice to illuminate German social history, gender history, and the history of sexuality.

In The Trial of H H Crippen, Filson Young compiles the transcript of one of the most famous murder trials of the early 20th century. Young gives us a clear image of the quiet, considerate doctor, and why such a man might be driven to kill his frivolous, unfaithful wife, Belle Elmore. After fleeing the country in disguise with his young mistress Ethel Le Neve, he is dramatically captured by Inspector Dew, and brought back to face justice. Here is clearly laid out all the stages of the trial, from the gruesome act itself, to the final verdict. First published in 1920, The Trial of H H Crippen sheds light not only on the elaborate layers of deceit used to cover up the heinous crime, but also on the intricate details of the trial, the fascinating word-for-word dialogue of the courtroom of 1910, and how, ultimately, a murderer was brought to justice.

Im Sommer 1969 erschüttert eine Reihe bestialischer Morde Los Angeles und die USA. Sharon Tate, die schwangere Ehefrau von Roman Polanski, ist eines der sieben Opfer des Serienmörders Charles Manson. Vincent Bugliosi war leitender Staatsanwalt in diesem spektakulären Fall. In seinem meisterhaft geschriebenen Buch berichtet er, wie es ihm in minutiöser Detektivarbeit gelang, Charles Manson und seine ihm blind ergebene Hippie-Kommune für das Massaker hinter Gitter zu bringen. Die akribischen Ermittlungen, der komplexe Prozess, die kranke Weltanschauung, die Manson seinen Anhängern einflößte ... all dies macht diesen atemberaubend spannenden Weltbestseller aus. Seit 1971 sitzt Manson im Hochsicherheitsgefängnis, doch vergessen ist er noch lange nicht. Er ist zu einer diabolischen Kultfigur geworden, deren apokalyptisches Szenario und verschrobene Weltanschauung auch heute noch eine makabere Faszination ausüben. Dies ist eine Neuausgabe des 2010 erschienen Buchs Helter Skelter - Der Mordrausch des Charles Manson.

Three decades of controversy in Shakespeare studies can be summed up in a single question: Was Shakespeare one of a kind? On one side of the debate are the Shakespeare lovers, the bardolatrists, who insist on Shakespeare's timeless preeminence as an author. On the other side are the theater historians who view modern claims of Shakespeare's uniqueness as a distortion of his real professional life. In Shakespeare Only, Knapp draws on an extraordinary array of historical evidence to reconstruct Shakespeare's authorial identity as Shakespeare and his contemporaries actually understood it. He argues that Shakespeare tried to adapt his own singular talent and ambition to the collaborative enterprise of drama by imagining himself as uniquely embodying the diverse, fractious energies of the popular theater. Rewriting our current histories of authorship as well as Renaissance drama, Shakespeare Only recaptures a sense of the creative force that mass entertainment exerted on Shakespeare and that Shakespeare exerted on mass entertainment.
