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. Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes OBE, 3rd Baronet, looks back on a life lived at the very limits of human endeavour.

A book by a leading exponent of work with mentally disordered offenders charting key events in a fifty year career, which will be of particular interest to criminal psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers, social workers, judges, magistrates, criminologists, and all students of crime and punishment. From a relatively modest background, Herschel Prins rose to become a leading authority on forensic work with offenders suffering from mental disorder. In this frank and heartfelt account, he traces his journey from ‘main grade’ probation officer, Home Office civil servant, trainer and 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 and general readers alike - and words of wisdom for the Criminal Justice System as it enters the second decade of the 21st century. Praise for Herschel Prins ‘In a field prone to disappointment and disillusion he continues to stimulate and inspire’: Sir Michael Day OBE ‘I can think of no-one more instrumental at the pivotal meeting point of crime, criminal justice and mental disorder’: Andrew Rutherford ‘A monument to unassertive sanity’: Sir Louis Blom-Cooper QC ‘One of my heroes’: David Wilson From the Foreword 'Herschel has spent his professional life working with the troubled and the troublesome, the unloved (and the often unlovely) where the consistent theme of his work has been to combine the practical with an awareness of what is possible when one works with mentally disordered offenders. Why choose that life and these clients? What demands has that choice made on him, his family, his colleagues? . . . Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know sets out to answer these – and other – questions': David Wilson

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 alarming history of the British, and European, aristocracy - from Argyll to Wellington and from Byron to Tolstoy, stories of madness, murder, misery, greed and profligacy. From Regency playhouses, to which young noblemen would go simply in order to insult someone to provoke a duel that might further their reputation, to the fashionable gambling clubs or 'hells' which were springing up around St James's in the mid-eighteenth century, the often bizarre doings of aristocrats. An eighteenth-century English gentleman was required to have what was known as 'bottom', a shipping metaphor that referred to stability. Taking part in a duel was a bold statement that you had bottom. William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne certainly had bottom, if not a complete set of gonads following his duel with Colonel Fullarton, MP for Plympton. Both men missed with their first shots, but the colonel fired again and shot off Shelborne's right testicle. Despite being hit, Shelborne deliberately discharged his second shot in the air. When asked how he was, the injured Earl coolly observed his wound and said, 'I don't think Lady Shelborne will be the worse for it.' The cast of characters includes imperious, hard-drinking and highly volatile Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, who is remembered today as much for his brilliant scientific career as his talent for getting involved in bizarre mishaps, such as his death as a result of his burst bladder; the Marquess of Queensberry, a side-whiskered psychopath, who, on a luxury steamboat in Brazil, in a row with a fellow passenger over the difference between emus and ostriches, and knocked him out cold; and Thomas, 2nd Baron Lyttelton, a Georgian rake straight out of central casting, who ran up enormous gambling debts, fought duels, frequented brothels and succumbed to drug and alcohol addiction. Often, such rakes would be swiftly packed off on a Grand Tour in the hope that travel would bring about maturity. It seldom did.

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.
