Transgender survivors of violence tell their stories Transgender people face some of the highest rates of violence in the US and around the world, particularly within romantic relationships. In Transgressed, Xavier L. Guadalupe-Diaz offers a ground-breaking examination of intimate partner violence in the lives of transgender people. Drawing on interviews and written accounts from transgender survivors of intimate partner violence, he sheds much-needed light on the dynamics of abuse that entrap trans partners in violent relationships. Transgressed shows how rigidly gendered discussions of violence have served to marginalize and silence stories of abuse. Ultimately, these stories of survival follow their unique journeys as they navigate—and break free—from the cycle of abuse, providing us with a better understanding of their experiences. An emotionally compelling read, Transgressed offers new ways of understanding the complexities of intimate partner violence through the eyes of transgender survivors.

Легендарные речи от великого адвоката! Федор Никифорович Плевако – выдающийся адвокат рубежа XIX – XX веков. Его выступления изменили представление о ходе судебного заседания, а его речи стали примером непревзойденного мастерства. Он быстро сыскал славу лучшего и самого знаменитого адвоката Москвы. Защищал бедных и обездоленных, зачастую бесплатно, а порой и оплачивал все их расходы, связанные с судебными тяжбами. Адвокатская деятельность Ф. Плевако прошла в Москве и наложила свой отпечаток на его речи. Звон московских колоколов, ее архаичность, богатое событиями прошлое и современные адвокату нравы и обычаи находили свое отражение в выступлениях адвоката. Именно поэтому его речи интересны не только с юридической, но и с литературной точки зрения. © Плевако Ф.Н., 2020 © & ℗ ООО «Издательство АСТ», «Аудиокнига», 2020

[i]'He was scared shitless every minute he was in there. And he knew. He knew you lot was after him.'[/i] Tommy Anderson was born in a prison, and he died in one too. The last moments of his life are recorded on CCTV, and yet no one can answer the simple question: whose fault was it? His mother Anne blames Marcus, the guard who was supposed to be looking after him. Marcus, acquitted by the courts but tormented by his part in Tommy's death, wants the family’s social worker to admit to the role she played. And social worker Sue can’t work out when it was she stopped caring. Piecing together a boy’s life and death in care, Carthage asks who should raise our children when the systems designed to protect them can be as abusive as the situations from which they were rescued.

Case seen on Inside Edition, Good Morning America, and 48 Hours Accident, Suicide. . . Or Murder? On November 6, 2000, paramedics answered a call to find Kristin Rossum, 24, sobbing. Her husband, Greg de Villers, wasn't breathing and she claimed he had overdosed on drugs after learning she was leaving him. But family and friends who knew of Greg's distaste for drugs weren't buying Kristin's story–particularly the idea that he would take his own life. American Beauty The daughter of a well-to-do California family, Rossum was a brainy blonde beauty whose talent for toxicology had won her a post at the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office. But her sweet smile masked a dark side. She'd developed a taste for methamphetamine in high school, and six months after her marriage to Greg, she'd begun seeking secret trysts with other men. Toxic Passion At the time of her husband's death, Rossum was engaged in an illicit affair with her married boss. Investigators found that the Medical Examiner's Office was missing supplies of meth and fentanyl, the narcotic that had killed her husband. With each clue discovered, another piece of Rossum's «good girl» façade fell away. What the world would eventually see was the true face of a murderer–and the hand of justice. . . 16 Pages Of Shocking Photos

Greedy schemer. Family Slayer.  It was a night of celebration for the Whitaker family. Their son Bart was graduating from college. But when Bart’s brother Kevin opened the door to their house, a masked intruder shot him point blank. His mother took the next bullet, followed by Mr. Whitaker and Bart. Blood was everywhere, but somehow Bart and his father survived . . . To the cops the story didn’t add up, and their investigation discovered a stunning web of lies. Bart was living a double life.

Instead of attending classes, he’d spent his days playing video games with his friends—while planning to murder his family to inherit their million-dollar estate . . . Bestselling author Corey Mitchell takes us inside this chilling murder case to reveal the twisted motives of a seemingly All-American Boy-Next Door who turned into a cold-blooded killer now residing on Death Row . . .  “Corey Mitchell empathized with crime victims in a unique and personal way. That empathy is evident in every true crime book he wrote.” —Suzy Spencer  INCLUDES 16 PAGES OF HAUNTING PHOTOS

"The defendant told the jury that he did not kill girlfriend. He did , however, admit to dismembering her, boiling her bones, and hiding them in the Port Authority locker." At the heart of countless crimes lies the mystery of the human mind. In this eye-opening book, Dr. Cheryl Paradis draws back the curtain on the fascinating world of forensic psychology and revisits the most notorious and puzzling cases she has handled in her multifaceted career. «Out it all came, a slew of bizarre comments about the electronic chips implanted in his brain.» Her riveting, sometimes shocking stories reveal the crucial and often surprising role forensic psychology plays in the pursuit of justice. Sometimes the accused believe their own bizarre lies, creating a world that pushes them into frightening, violent crimes. «My client is charged with murder and tells me he is a descendent of kings. He says he is of royal blood. Can you evaluate him for an insanity defense?» Join Dr. Paradis in a stark concrete cell, with the accused handcuffed to a chair opposite her, as she takes on the daunting task of mapping the suspect's madness–or exposing it as fakery. Have a front-row seat in a tense, packed courtroom, where her testimony can determine an individual's fate. The criminal mind has never been so intimately revealed–or so darkly compelling."A forensic psychologist reveals the dark and troubling human mind. Fascinating."–Robert K. Tanenbaum
