'EXCELLENT WRITING AND RESEARCH' - RUTH RENDELLThe Crime Museum of New Scotland Yard - invariably known as 'the Black Museum' - houses a remarkable collection of exhibits, photographs and documents connected with some of the most notorious crimes in this country's history. Although the museum is closed to the general public, Gordon Honeycombe was granted privileged access to its classified records, and his book reveals the stories behind 21 murders committed in Britain between 1835 and 1985.The author's painstaking research, which reaches beyond the Black Museum to other archives, as well as contemporary newspaper and similar reports, allows him to give searching accounts of the murders and manslaughter committed by such infamous characters as William Palmer, Charles Peace, Donald Nielson (the 'Black Panther'), the serial killer Dennis Nilsen, and Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain. Here too are John Lee, the Man They Could Not Hang, George Chapman, a London publican who poisoned his wives, and the murder by IRA bomb of four soldiers of the Household Cavalry in London's Hyde Park, in a work that provides a fascinating, if uncompromising, insight into the minds and methods of those who practise murder.The well-known writer and former ITN newscaster Gordon Honeycombe is also the author of Murders of the Black Museum: 1875-1975 (John Blake Publishing, 2009).

There are nearly 5,000 performers listed here, along with a quarter of a million film titles. The book is divided into two parts; the sound era, which has most of the entries, and the silent era, with about 700 names. Actors listed in this second section made no appearances after 1928. Actors whose careers spanned both talking films (which began in Britain in 1929) and silents are listed in the larger first section. Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Australian, Canadian, South African, and other British Commonwealth performers are included; British-born actors whose films were made outside the United Kingdom (as in Hollywood) and those born in foreign countries who filmed in Britain are also included. Birth and death dates are given when they could be traced. A brief character description is followed by the list of films, in chronological order. Original film titles and the year they were completed are also included.

Lynching In North Carolina

From the end of the Civil War through 1941, there were 168 North Carolinians who lost their lives to lynching. This form of mob violence was often justified as a means of controlling the black population; protecting white wives and daughters; and defending family honor. Legal attempts to deter lynching--including the 1893 law that classified it as a felony and sought to hold a county liable for damages--generally failed because of a lack of local support and ineffectual enforcement by state officials. After 1922, however, in a phenomenon unique to North Carolina, incidents of lynching inexplicably and rapidly declined, prompting the state to head a national movement1to end it. Appendices provide an account of all 168 known lynching occurrences.

The history of London is so important in national and indeed international terms, it seems extraordinary that this is the first general bibliography of the subject to appear. It contains over 22,000 selected references to books and articles on the history of London, from the Dark Ages to the beginning of the Second World War. The whole of the former GLC area plus the City is covered. Arrangement is by subject, and there is a substantial analytical index. Material for the bibliography was collected from specialist libraries all over London and beyond. It is a starting point for any enquiry about London's development over the centuries, whether from the academic historian, the amateur or the general enquirer. A supplement is planned, to cover new material on the period.
