Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Evil Beyond Belief - How and Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People by Wensley Clarkson Book Summary:

This is the story of a man who was addicted to murder; a man who wickedly abused the trust of his patients with horrifying results. Dr Harold Shipman was a pillar of the community, serving on local committees, donating prizes to sports clubs and organizing charity collections. His patients saw him as kind, attentive and never too busy to chat. Yet behind this charming facade lay a prolific serial killer with at least 300 suspected victims. Small, bespectacled Dr Shipman was making house calls - and then committing murder with bloodcurdling expertise and professionalism. This book looks behind the man and reveals how Shipman continued to be a doting husband and father, trusted and liked by most of his patients. It looks at how he was able to get away with murder for so long and why he was driven by a lust for death.

Monsters, Law, Crime

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Monsters, Law, Crime by Caroline Joan "Kay" S. Picart Book Summary:

Monsters, Law, Crime, an edited collection composed of essays written by prominent U.S. and international experts in Law, Criminology, Sociology, Anthropology, Communication and Film, constitutes a rigorous attempt to explore fertile interdisciplinary inquiries into “monsters” and “monster-talk,” and law and crime. This edited collection explores and updates contemporary discussions of the emergent and evolving frontiers of monster theory in relation to cutting-edge research on law and crime as extensions of a Gothic Criminology. This theoretical framework was initially developed by Caroline Joan “Kay” S. Picart, a Philosophy and Film professor turned Attorney and Law professor, and Cecil Greek, a Sociologist (Picart and Greek 2008). Picart and Greek proposed a Gothic Criminology to analyze the fertile synapses connecting the “real” and the “reel” in the flow of Gothic metaphors and narratives that abound around criminological phenomena that populate not only popular culture but also academic and public policy discourses. Picart's edited collection adapts the framework to focus predominantly on law and the social sciences.

Harold Shipman - Prescription For Murder

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Harold Shipman - Prescription For Murder by Brian Whittle,Jean Ritchie Book Summary:

He was a pillar of the community, serving on local committees, donating prizes to the rugby club, organising charity collections. His patients thought the world of him: he was attentive, kind, never too busy to chat. Yet Dr Harold Frederick Shipman was also the most prolific serial killer the world has ever known, with between 200 and 300 victims. Quietly, for many years, the small, bespectacled GP was making unexpected house calls - and walking out leaving a dead body behind. The murderous career of Dr Shipman only came to an end when police in Hyde, Greater Manchester, were called to investigate a forged will. Overnight, they found themselves embroiled in the biggest murder case in British history. Substantially revised and updated since Shipman's suicide in prison, this is a compelling account of these monstrous crimes and of the man who committed them. The authors have had unparalleled access to friends, colleagues and patients. Their in-depth and authoritative investigation looks at how he killed, how he was able to get away with it for so long, and - most important of all - why.

Planning in Divided Cities

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Planning in Divided Cities by Frank Gaffikin,Mike Morrissey Book Summary:

Does planning in contested cities inadvertedly make the divisions worse? The 60s and 70s saw a strong role of planning, social engineering, etc but there has since been a move towards a more decentralised ‘community planning’ approach. The book examines urban planning and policy in the context of deeply contested space, where place identity and cultural affinities are reshaping cities. Throughout the world, contentions around identity and territory abound, and in Britain, this problem has found recent expression in debates about multiculturalism and social cohesion. These issues are most visible in the urban arena, where socially polarised communities co-habit cities also marked by divided ethnic loyalties. The relationship between the two is complicated by the typical pattern that social disadvantage is disproportionately concentrated among ethnic groups, who also experience a social and cultural estrangement, based on religious or racial identity. Navigating between social exclusion and community cohesion is essential for the urban challenges of efficient resource use, environmental enhancement, and the development of a flourishing economy. The book addresses planning in divided cities in a UK and international context, examining cities such as Chicago, hyper-segregated around race, and Jerusalem, acting as a crucible for a wider conflict. The first section deals with concepts and theories, examining the research literature and situating the issue within the urban challenges of competitiveness and inclusion. Section 2 covers collaborative planning and identifies models of planning, policy and urban governance that can operate in contested space. Section 3 presents case studies from Belfast, Chicago and Jerusalem, examining both the historical/contemporary features of these cities and their potential trajectories. The final section offers conclusions and ways forward, drawing the lessons for creating shared space in a pluralist cities and addressing cohesion and multiculturalism. • Addresses important contemporary issue of social cohesion vs. urban competitiveness • focus on impact of government policies will appeal to practitioners in urban management, local government and regeneration • Examines role of planning in cities worldwide divided by religion, race, socio-economic, etc • Explores debate about contested space in urban policy and planning • Identifies models for understanding contested spaces in cities as a way of improving effectiveness of government policy

Malpractice and Medical Liability

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Malpractice and Medical Liability by Santo Davide Ferrara,Rafael Boscolo-Berto,Guido Viel Book Summary:

Medical responsibility lawsuits have become a fact of life in every physician’s medical practice. However, there is evidence that physicians are increasingly practising defensive medicine, ordering more tests than may be necessary and avoiding patients with complicated conditions. The modern practice of medicine is increasingly complicated by factors beyond the traditional realm of patient care, including novel technologies, loss of physician autonomy, and economic pressures. A continuing and significant issue affecting physicians and the healthcare system is malpractice. In the latter half of the 20th century, there was a major change in the attitude of the public towards the medical profession. People were made aware of the huge advances in medical technology, because health problems increasingly tended to attract media interest and wide publicity. Medicine is a victim of its own success in this respect, and people are now led to expect the latest techniques and perfect outcomes on all occasions. This burst of technology and hyper-specialization in many fields of medicine means that each malpractice claim is transformed into a scientific challenge, requiring specific preparation in analysis and judgment of the clinical case in question. The role of legal medicine becomes more and more peculiar in this judicial setting, often giving rise to erroneous interpretations and hasty scientific verdicts, but guidelines on the methodology of ascertainments and criteria of evaluation are lacking all over the world.The aim of this volume is to clarify the steps required for sequential in-depth analysis of events and consequences of medical actions, in order to verify whether, in the presence of damage, errors or non-observance of rules of conduct by health personnel exist, and which causal values and links of their hypothetical misconduct are involved.​

Written by leading authorities, it discusses the practical issues involved in reducing errors in health care - for the clinician, the health policy adviser, and ethical and legal health professionals.

Potentiating Health and the Crisis of the Immune System

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Potentiating Health and the Crisis of the Immune System by A. Mizrahi,S. Fulder,Nimrod Sheinman,N. Sheinman Book Summary:

With all the enormous resources that are invested in medicine, it is sometimes a mystery why there is so much sickness still in evidence. Our life span, though higher than at any time in history, has now leveled off and has not significantly increased in the last two generations. There is a one-third increase in long-term illness in the last 20 years and a 44% increase in cancer incidence, which are not related to demographic issues. In some modern countries, the level of morbidity (defined as days off work because of sickness) has increased by two thirds in this time. Despite $1 trillion spent on cancer research in 20 years, the "War On Cancer" has recently been pronounced a complete failure by the u. s. President's Cancer Panel. Evidently we still have a long way to go. The goal of "Health for All by the Year 2000" as the World Health Organization has put it, is another forgotten dream. As ever, the answer will be found in breaking out of the old philosophical patterns and discovering the new, as yet unacceptable concepts. The problems of medicine today require a Kuhnian breakthrough into new paradigms, and new ways of thinking. And these new ways will not be mere variations of the old, but radical departures. This book, and the conference upon which it was based, is part of a search for these new pathways.

The Reception of Darwinism in the Iberian World

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Reception of Darwinism in the Iberian World by T.F Glick,Miguel Angel Puig-Samper,R. Ruiz Book Summary:

This book provides both for academic historians and the general reader a broad perspective on Darwin's impact in the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. In Latin American countries with black and Amerindian populations, evolutionary theory was quickly mobilized for theorizing racial differences, while in Spain attention was focused on class differentiation, explained by a series of Darwinian, Social Darwinist, and Eugenic hypotheses. The wide variety of approaches to evolutionary and social theory in countries whose culture was very similar points illuminates those issues thought to be of particular significance for national identity, whether political, ethnic, or racial.

Kohlberg Revisited

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Kohlberg Revisited by Boris Zizek,Detlef Garz,Ewa Nowak Book Summary:

“I could easily say, what a timely book, but the truth is that Kohlberg is for the ages, which means any time is worthwhile to revisit his work. So, in that sense, let us ask, what aspects of his work in Moral Development and Moral Education are timely today? One answer can be found in the Kohlberg Lounge on the sixth floor of Larsen Hall, which I have the privilege to visit every day. Placed there in 1987, a plaque in his honor states: In memory of Lawrence Kohlberg: In this room where ideas are born through discussion and tested through debate Let us listen and speak with the same respect that he gave to all In 2015, the emphasis on discussion and debate has reached beyond moral development to all aspects of pedagogy, from literacy to history education and beyond. And, in an era of fast and slow thinking, this book reminds us that ethical reflection, self-awareness, and a social conscience are the three malleable developmental skills that allow us all to be truly human. Kohlberg then, Kohlberg now, Kohlberg forever.” – Robert L. Selman, Harvard University (Roy Edward Larsen Professor of Education and Human Development, Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry) “This book about one of the giants of psychology is very timely. There is a whole generation of students and scholars that is growing up with a knowledge about moral development without learning about the roots of the field. This is not a matter of nostalgia or ‘attributional justice,’ but one of missing out on a fountain of knowledge and insight that has not been surpassed in its depth and breadth. This book should become required reading for students in the social sciences that should begin to ask the questions that would require their teachers to ‘read up.’” – Gil Noam, Harvard Medical School (Founder and Director of the Program in Education, Afterschool & Resiliency (PEAR)) “Kohlberg’s theory of moral developmental might be more relevant today than ever, given increasing worries about the fragmentation and declining solidarity in modern Western society. But does the theory hold up in light of old criticisms and new questions and methods? The chapters, by leading scholars in the field of moral development, introduce new generations of moral psychologists, philosophers, and educators to Kohlberg’s work, by addressing strengths and weaknesses and suggesting ways to move forward. A must read for anyone interested in moral education.” – Jan Boom, Utrecht University (Chair of the Kuhmerker Dissertation Award Committee)

Enterprise and Heritage

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Enterprise and Heritage by John Corner,Sylvia Harvey Book Summary:

The phenomena of `enterprise' and `heritage' might at first thought seem unrelated: this book sets out to show that the two concepts are not only related but deeply interdependent. If `enterprise' can be used to define the official encouragement of the values of the market society, then the growth of the heritage industry can be seen as a manifestation of the entrepreneurial spirit - marketing the past so that it is accessible to the man or woman in the street. Using case studies, commentary and critique, the contributors to this lively volume discuss the importance of `enterprise' and `heritage' in British social and cultural life, with examples drawn from film, television, literature, urban planning, architecture, government advertising, information technology and tourism.

Fire Mountains of the Islands

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Fire Mountains of the Islands by R. Wally Johnson Book Summary:

Volcanic eruptions have killed thousands of people and damaged homes, villages, infrastructure, subsistence gardens, and hunting and fishing grounds in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The central business district of a town was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in the case of Rabaul in 1994. Volcanic disasters litter not only the recent written history of both countries—particularly Papua New Guinea—but are recorded in traditional stories as well. Furthermore, evidence for disastrous volcanic eruptions many times greater than any witnessed in historical times is to be found in the geological record. Volcanic risk is greater today than at any time previously because of larger, mainly sedentary populations on or near volcanoes in both countries. An attempt is made in this book to review what is known about past volcanic eruptions and disasters with a view to determining how best volcanic risk can be reduced today in this tectonically complex and volcanically threatening region.

It describes the state of evolution education in different countries that are representative of geographical regions around the globe such as Eastern Europe, Western Europe, North Africa, South Africa, North America, South America,Middle East, Far East, South East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.Studies in evolution education literature can be divided into three main categories: (a) understanding the interrelationships among cognitive, affective, epistemological, and religious factors that are related to peoples’ views about evolution, (b) designing, implementing, evaluating evolution education curriculum that reflects contemporary evolution understanding, and (c) reducing antievolutionary attitudes. This volume systematically summarizes the evolution education literature across these three categories for each country or geographical region. The individual chapters thus include common elements that facilitate a cross-cultural meta-analysis. Written for a primarily academic audience, this book provides a much-needed common background for future evolution education research across the globe.

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Private Security Trends, 1970 to 2000 by William Clay Cunningham,John J. Strauchs,Clifford W. VanMeter,Hallcrest Systems, Inc Book Summary:

This report describes the growth and changes in the private security industry between 1970 and 1990, discusses emerging and continuing issues and trends in private security and its relationships with public law enforcement, and recommends measure and research to improve cooperation between private security and law enforcement. Data came from a review of previous research, individual and focus group interviews, and an analysis of market data. Results indicated that the increased use of locks, security lighting, and other private and public security measures reflect a growing fear of crime, even while statistics show stable or declining crime rates. In addition, the frequency and cost of business crime are increasing. Additional crime problems include breaches of business ethics, drug abuse, computer crime, and terrorism. The primary responsibility for protective measures has also been shifting from public law enforcement to private security, indicating the need for greater cooperation between the public and private sectors. In addition, contract security companies are growing, while proprietary security organizations are decreasing in number. Major issues include the privatization of police support tasks, false alarms, police moonlighting, and the growing use of private adjudication.

A Reader in Health Policy and Management

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Reader in Health Policy and Management by Ann Mahon,Kieran Walshe,Naomi Chambers Book Summary:

"I enjoyed leafing through this collection, and seeing some of the 'modern classics' in the sociology of health excerpted - the excerpts being almost impossibly brief, although understandably so. It is good for academic-jockeys to lead practitioner-horses to the edge of heady intellectual waters- as long as they don't end up the infamous creek without a paddle. Enough mixed metaphors... I enjoyed it - really." Calum Paton, Professor of Health Policy, Keele University, UK "This book introduces the reader to many of the most important debates in health policy today through a judicious selection of contributions from a range of disciplines. It will be invaluable in helping students find their way in to a diverse and complex field of study, and should also whet their appetites to go to the sources to explore these debates in greater depth." Chris Ham, Professor of Health Policy and Management, Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham, UK "This book shows the great benefits of expert selection of the best writings on the subject. Our starting point for the future is what we inherit - the ideas and structures from the past. This book shows us how we got here, and the choices for the future. In an age of Kindle and downlodable PDFs, this selection of the best in one place is invaluable to researchers, practitioners, and leaders of learning programmes. We are shaped by history, but unknowingly. Knowing our history, can free us from it. We can build on the best and avoid repeating old mistakes." Dr John Ovretveit, Director of Research and Professor of Health Innovation and Evaluation, Medical Management Centre, The Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden "The authors have collected a good range of papers with some going back to establishment of the NHS and others drawing on healthcare in other countries to provide comparison and contrast. A few of the articles will be familiar to anyone engaged in formal learning about healthcare, but there is plenty of new material and the favourites sit well with the more unfamiliar work. All of the papers are of high standard and the reader will need to pay attention to get the most from them – there's no 'Healthcare for Dummies' here." Andrew Palmer, Student, Queens University Belfast, UK This reader offers instant access to fifty classic and original readings in health policy and management. Compiled by experts, the editors introduce a framework setting out the key policy drivers and policy levers, giving a conceptual framework that provides context for each piece. Ten key themes are covered that are relevant to managers and practitioners working in healthcare systems throughout the world and reflect much of the content of postgraduate programmes in health policy and management. These are: The role of the state in healthcare The policy making process The allocation and distribution of resources Markets and choice in healthcare Accountability and regulation Quality and safety General management and governance Evidence based health policy and management The social context of health Cultural critiques of formalised healthcare systems Each section containing a set of readings has an introduction and a summary of key points, references and further reading so readers can explore areas of interest in more depth. A Reader in Health Policy and Management is an ideal companion text to Healthcare Management (edited by Kieran Walshe and Judith Smith) and is key reading for postgraduate students, managers, leaders and clinicians working in healthcare. It will also be of interest to those working in partnership with healthcare organisations and located in the public sector, independent and voluntary sectors.

The Christmas Truce

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Christmas Truce by Terri Blom Crocker Book Summary:

In late December 1914, German and British soldiers on the western front initiated a series of impromptu, unofficial ceasefires. Enlisted men across No Man's Land abandoned their trenches and crossed enemy lines to sing carols, share food and cigarettes, and even play a little soccer. Collectively known as the Christmas Truce, these fleeting moments of peace occupy a mythical place in remembrances of World War I. Yet new accounts suggest that the heartwarming tale ingrained in the popular imagination bears little resemblance to the truth. In this detailed study, Terri Blom Crocker provides the first comprehensive analysis of both scholarly and popular portrayals of the Christmas Truce from 1914 to present. From books by influential historians to the Oscar-nominated French film Joyeux Noel (2006), this new examination shows how a variety of works have both explored and enshrined this outbreak of peace amid overwhelming violence. The vast majority of these accounts depict the soldiers as acting in defiance of their superiors. Crocker, however, analyzes official accounts as well as private letters that reveal widespread support among officers for the détentes. Furthermore, she finds that truce participants describe the temporary ceasefires not as rebellions by disaffected troops but as acts of humanity and survival by professional soldiers deeply committed to their respective causes. The Christmas Truce studies these ceasefires within the wider war, demonstrating how generations of scholars have promoted interpretations that ignored the nuanced perspectives of the many soldiers who fought. Crocker's groundbreaking, meticulously researched work challenges conventional analyses and sheds new light on the history and popular mythology of the War to End All Wars.

Place Names of Hawaii

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Place Names of Hawaii by Mary Kawena Pukui,Samuel H. Elbert,Esther T. Mookini Book Summary:

How many place names are there in the Hawaiian Islands? Even a rough estimate is impossible. Hawaiians named taro patches, rocks, trees, canoe landings, resting places in the forests, and the tiniest spots where miraculous events are believed to have taken place. And place names are far from static--names are constantly being given to new houses and buildings, streets and towns, and old names are replaced by new ones. It is essential, then, to record the names and the lore associated with them now, while Hawaiians are here to lend us their knowledge. And, whatever the fate of the Hawaiian language, the place names will endure. The first edition of Place Names of Hawaii contained only 1,125 entries. The coverage is expanded in the present edition to include about 4,000 entries, including names in English. Also, approximately 800 more names are included in this volume than appear in the second edition of the Atlas of Hawaii.

Neo-scholastic Essays by Edward Feser Book Summary:

"In a series of publications over the course of a decade, Edward Feser has argued for the defensibility and abiding relevance to issues in contemporary philosophy of Scholastic ideas and arguments, and especially of Aristotelian-Thomistic ideas and arguments. This work has been in the vein of what has come to be known as "analytical Thomism," though the spirit of the project goes back at least to the Neo-Scholasticism of the period from the late nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth. Neo-Scholastic Essays collects some of Feser's academic papers from the last ten years on themes in metaphysics and philosophy of nature, natural theology, philosophy of mind, and ethics. Among the diverse topics covered are: the relationship between Aristotelian and Newtonian conceptions of motion; the varieties of teleological description and explanation; the proper interpretation of Aquinas's Five Ways; the impossibility of a materialist account of the human intellect; the philosophies of mind of Kripke, Searle, Popper, and Hayek; the metaphysics of value; the natural law understanding of the ethics of private property and taxation; a critique of political libertarianism; and the defensibility and indispensability to a proper understanding of sexual morality of the traditional "perverted faculty argument.""--

What is a Disaster?

Evil Beyond Belief How And Why Dr Harold Shipman Murdered 357 People [Pdf/ePub] eBook

What is a Disaster? by Ronald W. Perry,Enrico Louis Quarantelli Book Summary:

What is a Disaster? Addresses the most basic question in the field: that of defining the phenomenon of study. For theoretical advancement, it is important that researchers begin to develop a consensus about the meaning of disasters and related phenomena. With the rise in international terrorism, one must clarify whether these events are disasters and if so, what kind of disasters. Similarly, in addition to natural disasters, do we include riots, explosions, nuclear power plant accidents, damn collapses, and land subsidence under the same conceptual umbrella? What practical and theoretical differences does it make if the same label is used or not used for such different situations? What is a Disaster? Brings together twelve social scientists representing eight disciplines and seven countries to share their definition and vision of disasters. In the process, a wide range of views are expressed and issues raised regarding the relationship of academic versus practical definitions, the impact of grouping types of disasters in different ways, and the epistemologies on which theoretical growth should rest. The forum provided involves the presentation of each author's views, followed by a discussant's critique, and closed with a response from the author. The editor's close the volume with discussions of the theoretical framework of disaster research and an agenda for disaster research in the twenty-first century.
