Some crimes shock an entire nation, and in doing so, define us for all time. In Australia the twelve infamous crimes detailed in this book have become part of our cultural landscape - 'Gatton', 'Pyjama Girl', 'Shark-Arm', 'Brown-Out', 'Thorne Kidnapping', 'Backpacker' and 'Snowtown' - each name has become synonymous with our unique criminal heritage. And when normal police methods fail to produce answers, as in the 'Bogle-Chandler' Mystery, the 'Wanda Beach Murders', the disappearance of the 'Beaumont Children' and more recently, the 'Norfolk Island' case, the crimes take on almost an urban mythology where fact and fiction become difficult to separate. But more than that, these events - and our reaction to them - reveal more about Australian society than we may care to know.

What do O. J. Simpson, the Lindbergh baby, and Gary Gilmore have in common? They were all the focus of famous crimes and/or trials in the United States. In this two-volume set, historical and contemporary cases that not only shocked the nation but that also became a part of the popular and legal culture of the United States are discussed in vivid, and sometimes shocking, detail. Each chapter focuses on a different crime or trial and explores the ways in which each became famous in its own time. The fascinating cast of characters, the outrageous crimes, the involvement of the media, the actions of the police, and the trials that often surprised combine to offer here one of the most comprehensive sets of books available on the subject of famous U.S. crimes and trials. The public seems fascinated by crime. News and popular media sources provide a steady diet of stories, footage, and photographs about the misfortunes of others in order to satisfy this appetite. Murder, rape, terrorism, gang-related activities, and other violent crimes are staples. Various crime events are presented in the news every day, but most of what is covered is quickly forgotten. In contrast, some crimes left a lasting impression on the American psyche. Some examples include the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City, and the September 11th attacks. These events, and other significant cases, are immediately or on reflection talked about as crimes of the century. They earn this title not only because they generate enormous publicity, but because of their impact on American culture: they help define historical eras, influence public opinion about crime, change legal process, and focus concern about important social issues. They seep into many other shared aspects of social life: public conversation, fiction and nonfiction, songs, poems, films, and folk tales. This set focuses on the many crimes of the century of the last 100 years. In vivid detail, each crime is laid out, the investigation is discussed, the media reaction is described, the trial (if there was one) is narrated, the resolution is explored, and the significance of the case in terms of its social, political, popular, and legal relevance is examined. Illustrations and sidebars are scattered throughout to enliven the text; print and electronic resources for further reading and research are offered for those wishing to dig deeper. Cases include the Scopes Monkey trial, Ted Bundy, Timothy McVeigh, O.J. Simpson, Leopold and Loeb, Fatty Arbuckle, Al Capone, JonBenet Ramsey, the Lacy Peterson murder, Abu Ghraib, Columbine and more.

America is a nation that's on the move, and so is crime. Mobility makes rape, robbery, and murder easier than ever for the predators who prowl the highways and lonely back roads, the rest stops and roadside motels. Cross-country killers on a high-spree rampage, homicidal truckers, roadside hustlers turned psycho-sex criminals, lust-murderers protected by the anonymity of the open highway--these are just some of the nightmarish figures who turn the nation's roads into horrendous crime scenes. This book explores the chilling truth about the depraved killers who ply the roads, and captures all the pity, fear, and horror of the innocent victims who took a nonstop ride straight to hell.

One of art history’s most notorious crimes is solved in this true caper that reads “like a finely tuned suspense thriller” (Publishers Weekly). In 1961, a thief broke into London’s National Gallery and committed the most sensational art heist in British history by stealing the museum’s prized painting, Francisco Goya’s The Duke of Wellington. Despite international attention and a tireless investigation, the case remained unsolved for four years—until an elderly gentleman named Kempton Bunton confessed to the crime. Shortly after turning himself in, Bunton invoked an obscure law to maintain his innocence. He maintained that stealing the painting wasn’t a crime because he intended to return it—an improbable defense strategy that led to a bizarre courtroom drama and an extraordinary verdict. Over fifty years later, author Alan Hirsch delves into the facts of the case via court documents, National Gallery archives, previously unseen materials, and interviews with people involved in the theft and trial. Here, in this “intriguing addition to the annals of modern art history” Hirsh reveals shocking new evidence and solves the infamous crime that riveted a nation (Booklist).
