Lord Digby Banks and his crony Lord Rupert Crook-Smith, excolonial governors, decide to assassinate a few corrupt individuals in Africa. A hit team is organized in London, and targets are selected in Kenya using the media. Things go wrong, and the lords are caught. But capital punishment prevents extradition, and in England, political expediency saves them embarrassment. Encouraged by their apparent immunity, a second mission is launched by the lords to deal with corporate crime in America. People start dying, and the causes are traced to them. The US attorney general seeks extradition, but in the final analysis, an American citizen is prosecuted, and an unusual verdict is reached.

Even in an age of economic prosperity, there are young people who live on the edge of western societies and who are held accountable for their every indiscretion, sometimes even for those of others. This book employs a sociological imagination to make connections between the public issues and private troubles of youth living on the street. The narrative is pedagogical in intent, seeking to make sense of seemingly antisocial behavior, understood in the context of broader social, political, and economic concerns. In particular, it speaks to the -helping- professions of education, law, social work, nursing, psychology, and medicine."

Rough Justice recounts the experiences of victims of police and criminal justice failings through the stories of some who fought back, often with amazing commitment and courage. Their feelings encompass frustration, confusion, helplessness and anger. Their encounters affected their trust, certainty and confidence in British justice, sometimes for a lifetime. "An extraordinary book to remind us all that our 'social contract' comes with some frightening downsides" Professor David Wilson (From the Foreword). In 2006 Prime Minister David Cameron declared the police the 'last great unreformed public service' but Governments have dodged fundamental change. Police still investigate and often 'clear' themselves, and avoid prosecution more than Joe Public. A minority practice deception and dubious tactics to obscure what is happening. At a time when the Home Office is reviewing police integrity and discipline, the book also looks at the manipulation of crime statistics, argues that the Independent Police Complaints Commission is unfit for purpose and points to unfairness underpinning a crisis of legitimacy. As former Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer commented, 'Britain's criminal justice system fails the vulnerable'. It lets down law-abiding people too (including MPs) through free-style policing and a 'because we can' approach. It could it happen to you. Will anything ever change? When will politicians face up to the need for action? Roger Williams wrote Rough Justice as an ordinary citizen caught-up in a highly professional and impenetrable criminal process. He then discovered others with the same sense of inadequacy when faced with the might of the state. He hopes their stories and his suggestions might make a difference.

In this deeply researched prequel to his 2006 study Rough Justice: Lynching and American Society, 1874–1947, Michael J. Pfeifer analyzes the foundations of lynching in American social history. Scrutinizing the vigilante movements and lynching violence that occurred in the middle decades of the nineteenth century on the Southern, Midwestern, and far Western frontiers, The Roots of Rough Justice: Origins of American Lynching offers new insights into collective violence in the pre-Civil War era. Pfeifer examines the antecedents of American lynching in an early modern Anglo-European folk and legal heritage. He addresses the transformation of ideas and practices of social ordering, law, and collective violence in the American colonies, the early American Republic, and especially the decades before and immediately after the American Civil War. His trenchant and concise analysis anchors the first book to consider the crucial emergence of the practice of lynching of slaves in antebellum America. Pfeifer also leads the way in analyzing the history of American lynching in a global context, from the early modern British Atlantic to the legal status of collective violence in contemporary Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa. Seamlessly melding source material with apt historical examples, The Roots of Rough Justice tackles the emergence of not only the rhetoric surrounding lynching, but its practice and ideology. Arguing that the origins of lynching cannot be restricted to any particular region, Pfeifer shows how the national and transatlantic context is essential for understanding how whites used mob violence to enforce the racial and class hierarchies across the United States.

The Flanagans, the Tanners and the Lovells all live on the top floor of the Turnbury Buildings - a crumbling Victorian tenement in the heart of London's East End. Nell Flanagan is a decent, hardworking woman, married to Stephen, a tough, heavy-drinking brute of a man, who works as a casual in the docks - when there's work available. Nell has hidden the abuse she has suffered at his hands from her young children, although most of the neighbours realise what's going on. The Tanners think she must be asking for it, but Martin Lovell has always admired Nell. When he sees Stephen actually attacking Nell, he can stand back no longer, but his actions have repercussions for all the families... Set in 1936 against a backdrop of civil war in Spain, the threat of fascism in western Europe, and the privations of the Depression at home, Rough Justice is the first novel in a dramatic new series about the lives, loves and losses, the fears, hopes and desires, the failures and triumphs of the families who live and work in and around Turnbury Buildings.
