A Fine Day for a Hanging

The Real Ruth Ellis Story

Author: Carol Ann Lee

Publisher: Random House

ISBN: 1780573693

Category: Social Science

In 1955, former nightclub manageress Ruth Ellis shot dead her lover, David Blakely. Following a trial that lasted less than two days, she was found guilty and sentenced to death. She became the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and her execution is the most notorious of hangman Albert Pierrepoint's 'duties'. Despite Ruth's infamy, the story of her life has never been fully told. Often wilfully misinterpreted, the reality behind the headlines was buried by an avalanche of hearsay. But now, through new interviews and comprehensive research into previously unpublished sources, Carol Ann Lee examines the facts without agenda or sensation. A portrait of the era and an evocation of 1950s club life in all its seedy glamour, A Fine Day for a Hanging sets Ruth's gripping story firmly in its historical context in order to tell the truth about both her timeless crime and a punishment that was very much of its time.

In this book I have taken true life events that have actually occurred in my lifetime. My inspiration was about a real life game of Russian roulette. The last soul survivor of five young teenage boys was the one who told me his story. They did not all die from the actual playing of the game, but it did cause the boys a deep depression that took their lives, one by one. However, they did not all die the way my book describes. In fact, one of the boys death’s was context I used from a real incident that took place when I was growing up. He was my friend. This boy was being bullied by six other teenage boys. After beating him up and ramming his head through a plate glass window of the local paramount theater, he decided to end it all and jump in front of a train. Bullying is a serious matter that can effect young minds in ways that are so horrible, you might not fi nd out what is really going on with them, until it is too late. May Tommy rest in peace. But I could not end this book here. I believe that when something bad happens, there are always good things to fall in its place. So I threw a few twists into my writings. There is a forest on the outskirts of my home town that was declared the historical cottonwoods, in which I use as the setting for this book. Wandering through the forest one day, I discovered a rather large naturally hollowed out cottonwood tree. This is where one lucky boys adventures begin. The boys built a real working elevator inside the tree that would lead to the bottom of a two story tree house they also constructed. But it does not end there. A magical book of secrets reveals itself. In this book it tells the story about an underground city as it really happens. Inside the hollow of the tree and approximately ten feet below the surface, an underground elevator is activated, once the owner of the book comes forward. This will lead to a hallway full of doors, each leading to mystical places beyond your wildest dreams. At the end of the first hallway is a rather large room where all hallways begin. A hidden ceiling door slides open with a thunderous ear deafening screech. It is the glass bottom of the Fraser river, in which you are able to view underwater creatures in their natural habitat. Down one of the hallways there is a door to an ancient library that tells the history of the underground. It is referred to as the spell room. There is also another door that leads to the four seasons. A big wooden door separates the hallways full of doors from an underground city called the Packs. Inside this city is a rather unique arena where there is a hockey game like you have never seen before.

Category: Medical

Page: 666

The spectrum and etiology of liver diseases vary widely between East and West and hence the focus and experience of hepatologists also remain varied at two corners of the globe. Hepatology being perhaps one of the most flourishing and evolving discipline of medical sciences, a book with recent information written by experts from all over the world was much needed. The present book fulfills this need. The book will serve as a useful reference manual to consultants, postgraduate students, and residents of Hepatology, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Pathology, Virology, and Preventive Medicine as well as undergraduate clinical medical students. Liver is a comprehensive book that discusses all aspects of diseases ranging from epidemiology to prognosis. This book is unique in its conception and presentation, as not only it provides new information but also offers a balanced and rational approach to diseases of liver, pancreas, and biliary system. One of the characteristic features of the book is inclusion of diseases of pancreas and separate chapters on important topics like cytokines and chemokines and apoptosis in liver diseases, as a sound background in these is essential for becoming a good specialist. It contains a chapter on evidence-based clinical practice in hepatology, which is the basis of modern clinical practice. It also includes a chapter on preventive aspects of hepato-biliary diseases keeping in mind that prevention of diseases is always preferred to cure. One of the unique features of this book is, it has contributors from all over the world.

Pediatric Andrology

Author: S.J. Kogan,E.S. Hafez

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9401037191

Category: Medical

Page: 232

View: 7322

The subject matter in this volume was derived from papers presented at the Pediatric Andrology session of the 1st Pan American Congress of Andrology held in Caracas, Venezuela in February 1979, as well as from selected additional manuscripts of interest in this field. Prior to this session, identification of a distinct discipline and specialty devoted to pediatric andrology had not occurred, nor had it been conceptualized. Pediatric andrology encompasses many different areas: disorders of sexual development, structural disease of the genital organs, normal and abnormal puberty, undescended testes, genital tumors, gonadal function and its relationship to growth, virilization, fertility and gender identity all represent areas of specific interest, to name but a few. Andrology itself is a unique field, bringing together clinicians and basic scientists with diverse back grounds. It should be noted that between one-half and three-quarters of the clinicians contributing to this issue conduct basic research as well. It has been this unique blend of basic research and clinical medicine which has done much to unravel many of these problems characteristic of this field.
