Lady Lamb once said of Lord Byron that he was "mad, bad, and dangerous to know." Not only was Lord Byrons the original rock star, he was also the originator of the dark, brooding anti-hero also known as the Byronic hero. Here, you will be able to read about the origins of the Byronic hero, works by Byron, as well as those influenced by him both during his own time and ours.Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books.

From a relatively modest background, author Herschel Prins rose to become a leading exponent of forensic work with offenders suffering from mental disorders. In this absorbing account, he traces his personal journey - as a 'main grade' probation officer, a UK Home Office civil servant, a trainer, an inspector to top level positions within academic institutions (notably at Leicester University and Loughborough University), with the Parole Board, key nationwide committees, inquiries, and beyond. His reflections - on a life geared to enhancing knowledge and understanding in this sphere - contain unique insights for practitioners, criminologists, and general readers alike. These are words of wisdom for the criminal justice system as it enters the second decade of the 21st century, written by a leading exponent of work with mentally disordered offenders. The book charts key events in a 50 year long career, which will be of particular interest to criminal psychologists, psychiatrists, parole officers, criminologists, judges, and all students of crime and punishment.

Told in alternating narratives that bridge centuries, the latest novel from New York Times bestselling author Samira Ahmed traces the lives of two young women fighting to write their own stories and escape the pressure of cultural expectations in worlds too long defined by men. It’s August in Paris and 17-year-old Khayyam Maquet—American, French, Indian, Muslim—is at a crossroads. This holiday with her parents should be a dream trip for the budding art historian. But her maybe-ex-boyfriend is probably ghosting her, she might have just blown her chance at getting into her dream college, and now all she really wants is to be back home in Chicago figuring out her messy life instead of brooding in the City of Light. Two hundred years before Khayyam’s summer of discontent, Leila is struggling to survive and keep her true love hidden from the Pasha who has “gifted” her with favored status in his harem. In the present day—and with the company of a descendant of Alexandre Dumas—Khayyam begins to connect allusions to an enigmatic 19th-century Muslim woman whose path may have intersected with Alexandre Dumas, Eugène Delacroix, and Lord Byron. Echoing across centuries, Leila and Khayyam’s lives intertwine, and as one woman’s long-forgotten life is uncovered, another’s is transformed.

Ranulph Fiennes has travelled to the most dangerous and inaccessible places on earth, almost died countless times, lost nearly half his fingers to frostbite, raised millions of pounds for charity and been awarded a polar medal and an OBE. He has been an elite soldier, an athlete, a mountaineer, an explorer, a bestselling author and nearly replaced Sean Connery as James Bond. In his autobiography he describes how he led expeditions all over the world and became the first person to travel to both poles on land. He tells of how he discovered the lost city of Ubar in Oman and attempted to walk solo and unsupported to the North Pole - the expedition that cost him several fingers, and very nearly his life. His most recent challenge was scaling the north face of the Eiger, one of the most awesome mountaineering challenges in the world. Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes OBE, 3rd Baronet, looks back on a life lived at the very limits of human endeavour.

'There is something interesting and intriguing to be found on almost every page' Guardian 'A father . . . is a necessary evil.' Stephen Dedalus in Ulysses ____________________________________ In Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know Colm Tóibín turns his incisive gaze to three of Ireland's greatest writers, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats and James Joyce, and their earliest influences: their fathers. From Wilde's doctor father, a brilliant statistician and amateur archaeologist, who was taken to court by an obsessed lover in a strange premonition of what would happen to his son; to Yeats' father, an impoverished artist and brilliant letter-writer who could never finish apainting; to John Stanislus Joyce, a singer, drinker and story-teller, a man unwilling to provide for his large family, whom his son James memorialised in his work. Colm Tóibín illuminates not only the complex relationships between three of the greatest writers in the English language and their fathers, but also illustrates the surprising ways they surface in their work ___________________________________ 'Toibin has a hawk-like eye for literary subtleties, and a generosity towards his subjects that is warm and unacademic.'

The poet Lord Byron became a star overnight, he was the toast of Regency society, adored by women who clamoured to meet him. When he met the married Lady Caroline Lamb, the niece of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, in 1812 scandalous passions were ignited. Regency England bore witness to their public displays of indifference and criticism while privately Byron and Caro carried out an intense affair that led to talk of an elopement. After Lord Byron ended their relationship, Lady Caroline Lamb's obessive behaviour, her improbable but public suicide attempt, substance abuse and questions about her sanity marked the rest of her life. She wrote as passionately as she felt, Glenarvon, was a fictional and melodramatic account of her relationship with the infamous Lord Byron. He wrote about and to her in his poems after his passions cooled, sometimes using hateful comments. Byron went on to marry and have several more lovers, male and female, scandal followed him wherever he went. So, was Lord Byron mad, bad and dangerous to know and when did Caroline coin this phrase? How did Caroline's husband, William Lamb, later Lord Melbourne, Queen Victoria's first Prime Minister, react to such a public embarrassment? Were the rumours about Byron's passions true? Find out in this book about one of the most passionate affairs in English history and the resulting public and literary outbursts between two fiery and larger than life figures. Their compelling story could have been written in a regency romance novel.

Cults Mad Bad And Dangerous To Know

A lavishly illustrated and luxuriously printed large format fold-out poster-guide showing 30 of the most notorious cults active in the US and Canada from the early 20th century to today. Mixing thorough research with lively text, the guide takes in the full spectrum of cult behaviour - sex, death, polygamy, religious mania, beings from Outer Space. We've all seen them: those tight-knit groups of fellow travellers, dressed in matching colored robes, shaking the can or passing out literature on street corners, smiling at some shared and secret observation. Cults are fascinating, even as we try not to look at them too closely. But when we do take a look, we find that like Tolstoy's happy families, cults are almost all alike. Take a big dollop of unresolved daddy (or mommy) issues and shake them up with physical isolation, a leadership hierarchy, mental manipulation, financial exploitation and sexual abuse, and you'll have the standard Cult Cocktail, ready to be garnished with unique beliefs to taste. Often, the first layers of membership are wonderful, providing the deepest sense of belonging that a lonely seeker has ever felt. It's only as the onion is peeled that the real community is revealed, and often then it is too late. We've collected thirty of the more interesting recent cults to stake a claim in North America, and boiled their complex histories down to bite size. Each one is an extraordinary example of how a whole new world can coalesce around charisma and faith, and how mad, bad and dangerous these worlds can be to know.

This book takes a broad perspective and analyses the ways in which the British film industry has dealt with women and their creativity from 1930 to the present. The first part of the book deals comprehensively with different historical periods in British film culture, showing how the 'agency' of production company, director, distribution company or scriptwriter can bring about new patterns of female stereotyping. The second part looks at the input of women workers into the film process. It assesses the work of women in a variety of roles: directors such as Wendy Toye and Sally Potter, producers such as Betty Box, scriptwriters such as Clemence Dane and Muriel Box, costume designers such as Shirley Russell and Jocelyn Rickards, and editors and art directors. This is a polemical book which is written in a lively and often confrontational manner. It uses fresh archival material and takes energetic issue with those explanatory models of film analysis which impose easy answers onto complex material.

The Mad Bad And Dangerous Guide To Dead Or Alive And Pete Burns

Fronted by the androgynous Pete Burns, Dead Or Alive achieved their big break in 1984 with their UK Top 30 single That's The Way (I Like It) and its equally successful parent album Sophisticated Boom Boom. They would be the first two of eleven UK Top 30 records for the band, including following year's Lover Come Back To Me (#11), In Too Deep (#14) and You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) (#1). All three 1985 hits were yielded from their Gold-certified UK Top 10 album Youthquake.1986 saw the band score one of their five hit singles on the US Hot 100, with Brand New Lover (#15) - also a #1 on the US Dance Club Songs Chart - before they achieved further UK Top 20 hit Something In My House. Both were lifted from their Transatlantic hit album Mad, Bad and Dangerous To Know. Pete turned down a chance to tour with Madonna and stepped away from the spotlight to help his mother, who was given just months to live. Meanwhile, compilation/remix LP Rip It Up was issued to become a Top 5 success in Japan - a market which Dead Or Alive saw great success in throughout their career, including next single Turn Around & Count 2 Ten, which spent 17 weeks at #1 on the country's International singles chart. Follow-up Come Home With Me Baby became another US#1 dance hit. Both hits were from their fourth Billboard 200 hit album, and second Japan Top 10 album, 1988's Nude. The 1990's saw Dead Or Alive release just two studio albums, both initially exclusive in Japan: 1990's Fan The Flame (Part 1) was a Top 30 hit, whilst 1995's Nukleopatra eventually became the band's fourth hit album in Australia and yielded three hits there - namely Rebel Rebel, the Top 30 You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) (Sugar Pumpers Radio Remix) and Sex Drive.Dead Or Alive continued to have hits into the 2000's... Hit and Run Lover hit #2 on Japan's International Singles Chart as its parent album Fragile became yet another Top 50 hit in the country. You Spin Me Round 2003 provided the band with another UK Top 30 hit and became their fifteenth hit single in Australia. It was lifted from their Evolution: The Hits collection - their ninth hit on Japan's main album chart. After spending almost all his life-savings and 18 months in Italy to fix a devastating botched lip augmentation, Pete went straight into the UK celebrity Big Brother house in 2006, where much of the UK public witnessed his quick-wit, frankness, unique fashion style, and - during a performance of You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) - his masculine powerful singing voice. Unsurprisingly, a re-issue of the song shot straight into the Top 5 once again.In 2016, the world lost one its most intriguing, mesmerising and underrated music front-men, as, shockingly, Pete Burns passed away at just 57 years old. The Mad, Bad & Dangerous Guide To Dead Or Alive & Pete Burns is the first of its kind: A tribute to Pete Burns. With Pete Burns quotes scattered throughout, the book showcases Dead Or Alive's - and Pete's - career successes with a condensed biography of their musical output, Pete's colourful personal life, and his television successes, before detailing their records a little more with a career-spanning discography from Nightmares In Wax's Birth Of A Nation to Pete's solo Never Marry An icon.
