Pilots and aviation enthusiasts will be captivated by the intriguing investigation of popular myths surrounding the field of aviation safety in Murder in a 172. John A. Shewmaker, DO, uses actual narratives from National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigations of Cessna 172 crashes to debunk commonly held understandings of plane crash fatalities-particularly the belief that few fatalities have underlying medical causes. Shewmaker destroys the myth that very few fatal general aviation accidents have medical causes, exploring over 200 fatal events in the most widespread general aviation class of airframe, the Cessna 172. Drawing from his extensive experience as one of the country's busiest aviation examiners, Shewmaker delves into NTSB case studies, interpreting what the reports actually state-and perhaps more importantly-what the narratives fail to address. Shewmaker demonstrates how many self-styled aviation safety experts continue to misrepresent accident safety data, generating a false narrative about how and why aviation accidents occur, and ultimately doing a terrible disservice to the aviation community-and dishonoring the memories of those who have died doing what they loved.

From the author of Murder in a 172 and Flying under the Weather comes a fact-based expose of the errors of the National Transportation Safety Board in investigating aviation accidents. You hear all about the investigations for the well-publicized plane crashes. The NTSB addresses these cases with aplomb, delving deep into the mechanical issues and even bringing in non-NTSB investigators to cover themselves under the eye of Congress. But what about general aviation-the realm of the highest number of deaths? Flight physician John A. Shewmaker argues in Head in the Sand, Death in the Clouds that the NTSB fails to thoroughly and effectively assess pilot risks, a primary factor in general aviation accidents. Shewmaker uses evidence directly from NTSB narratives to clearly show the organization's failings. In this book, Shewmaker scrutinizes the accuracy of the NSTB's communication to the public, proposes adaptable and cost-efficient changes to the investigation system, and paints a picture of a future in which proper protocols get to the bottom of problems in the aircraft platform. Shewmaker's book will appeal to aviation buffs, those watchful of government mismanagement, and even design professionals or those who enjoy solving serious problem laid bare by hard facts. "

Suggesting that the drop in the percentage of homicide cases solved might indicate that more murders are being planned rationally and carried out with corporate efficiency and power, applies economic theory and empirical analysis to homicides that are committed for the purpose of enhancing profits or wealth. Such theories do not take emotions beyond greed into account nor assume moral behavior. The introduction to choice theory begins small, with the example of speeding, before moving into the big time.

Murder And Politics In Colonial Ghana

In 1943, ritual murder was committed in a large African kingdom in the south of Ghana, then a colony of Great Britain. Palace officials and close kin of a recently deceased king had reputedly killed one of his chiefs in order to smooth the king's passage into the afterlife. This riveting study tells the story of the murder, the trials and appeals of those accused of the crime, and the effect of the case on politics in Ghana and Great Britain. In recounting this fascinating case, the book also provides important insights into law and politics in the colonial Gold Coast, the clash between traditional and modern values, and the nature of African monarchy in the colonial period. Drawing on newly available oral and written evidence from Ghana and Britain, Richard Rathbone builds a detailed picture of the leading characters in the case, as well as of the thirty-year rule of Nana Ofori Atta, the king. He shows how the death of the king destroyed the economic, social, and moral fabric of the kingdom, and how this destruction was further exacerbated by legal proceedings resulting from the murder. The case set the indigenous royal family against the colonial government, challenging the authority of each. Close kinsmen of the accused, hitherto in the vanguard of moderate nationalism, were radicalized by their extended confrontation with the colonial justice system. It was their political initiatives that accelerated the formation of the Gold Coast's first national political party in the late 1940s, and which led in turn to the struggle for self-government and to the achievement of Ghanian independence in 1957.

Felony Murder

The felony murder doctrine is one of the most widely criticized features of American criminal law. Legal scholars almost unanimously condemn it as irrational, concluding that it imposes punishment without fault and presumes guilt without proof. Despite this, the law persists in almost every U.S. jurisdiction. Felony Murder is the first book on this controversial legal doctrine. It shows that felony murder liability rests on a simple and powerful idea: that the guilt incurred in attacking or endangering others depends on one's reasons for doing so. Inflicting harm is wrong, and doing so for a bad motive—such as robbery, rape, or arson—aggravates that wrong. In presenting this idea, Guyora Binder criticizes prevailing academic theories of criminal intent for trying to purge criminal law of moral judgment. Ultimately, Binder shows that felony murder law has been and should remain limited by its justifying aims.

Thousands of books and articles have been written about the murder of JFK, many of which are large in volume and short on facts. Quite often, these works try to reinvent the wheel, attempting to cover every single area of the assassination, as well as many tangential and unessential points, as well. The reader is often left exhausted and confused. The sheer volume of pages, conflicting facts, and theories leaves one unsatisfied and, quite frankly, not sure exactly what did happen on 11/22/63. This book seeks to separate the wheat from the chaff. It is 55-plus years later: it is time for real, honest answers in an easy-to-read and understand format. Proof of a conspiracy; no theories; to-the-point; a perspective on the assassination for the millennial age and beyond. Based on years—decades—of primary source research and having read countless books on the subject.

The identity of Jack the Ripper has consumed public curiosity since he first tormented the East End of London in 1888. Numerous theories have been offered as to his identity, but he remains in the shadows where, it seems, only imaginative literature has been able to elucidate his meaning to the modern world. This work surveys the literary, film, television, and radio treatments of Jack the Ripper and his crimes. The works of fiction are thoroughly analyzed, as are the major nonfiction works that have offered various theories about the Ripper’s identity. Works whose narratives are obviously inspired by Jack the Ripper and his crimes are also discussed.
