Murder Without Death, Birge, Jack E., M.D.
1 Birge, Jack E., M.D. Murder Without Death
(n.p.) Jack E. Birge (c.1981) Unstated edition Softcover Very Good 
[light exterior wear, tiny tear at top of spine; binding solid, internally clean]. Trade PB Self-published account of some miscarriage of justice done unto the author, although in the absence of a summarizing cover blurb, it's a little hard to figure out exactly what it was without actually reading the book. Apparently he ran afoul of the powers that be in Carrollton, Georgia (his introduction refers obliquely -- or is it metaphorically? -- to the "shark" who ran the town and unleashed his "destructive powers" on the good doctor, railroading him and at least one other fellow into the hoosegow). In the last line of his introduction, the author assures his readers that "everything in the book really happened and could happen to anyone who refuses to fit into a pattern dictated by the power structure of the community." (In the cover photo of the author behind bars, the stethoscope is a nice touch.)

After Prison -- What?, Booth, Maud Ballington
2 Booth, Maud Ballington After Prison -- What?
New York Fleming H. Revell Company (c.1903) First Edition Hardcover Good 
(no dust jacket) [worn but still solid copy, some exterior soiling, white lettering on spine and front cover rubbed but still readable, rear hinge cracked but not separated; school library property label (see description) on front pastedown, unused circulation slip affixed to rear pastedown, no other library markings]. (B&W photo frontispiece) An impassioned plea for the humane treatment and rehabilitation of prisoner inmates, the author's attitude pretty much summed up by her dedication: "Lovingly dedicated to our boys in prison by their Little Mother who believes in them and looks with confidence to a bright, victorious future when they shall have lived down the old, sad record, stormed the walls of prejudice, wrested just recognition from the skeptical and answered convincingly the question, 'can a convict be reformed?'" The author (1865-1948) went to work for the Salvation Army as a teenager and in 1886 married Ballington Booth, son of the organization's founder William Booth. The couple was instrumental in organizing the Salvation Army's early efforts in the U.S., but broke with the organization after a rift developed between Booth and his father. They subsequently founded their own organization, God's American Volunteers (soon renamed Volunteers of America), to aid the poor and underprivileged. Maud in particular was a tireless advocate for prison reform, taking her crusade on the road via the Chautauqua circuit. This book presents both an account of her efforts, including the formation of the Volunteer Prison League, and the stories of many of the convicts she met as a result of her work. [NOTE that the label in the front of the book indicates that it was "the property, and for the use of the members of the Sabbath School of the M.E. Church, Slingerlands, N.Y."]

Convicting the Innocent: Sixty-Five Actual Errors of Criminal Justice, Borchard, Edwin M.
3 Borchard, Edwin M. Convicting the Innocent: Sixty-Five Actual Errors of Criminal Justice
Garden City NY Garden City Publishing Co. , Inc. (c.1932) Reprint Hardcover Very Good+ 
(no dust jacket) [good solid copy, moderate shelfwear, some spotting/scuffing to rear cover]. (B&W photographs) "The sixty-five cases, although susceptible of dramatic presentation, are set forth in simple narrative form to indicate how the error occurred and how it was later discovered and unraveled. The cases were taken somewhat at random, for cases of this type are not systematically reported. The research was usually begun from a clue often afforded by a governor's pardon, by the report of a trial, or by a newspaper item, and was then pursued by an examination of the record and by correspondence or interview with the attorneys for the prosecution and defense and sometimes with the presiding judge, governor, or pardon board. An earnest effort has been made to present an accurate account of the facts; after each case in the original edition there will be found a bibliography of the principal sources employed and of the persons to whom special acknowledgments are due." [Note that the bibliography and source notes referred to are NOT present in this edition, which was apparently intended for a less scholarly readership; on the other hand, as stated in an editor's note, the original edition (Yale University Press, 1932) did not contain the photographs which illustrate this volume.]

[nice-looking copy, no significant wear, just a couple of very tiny spots on top edge, slight residue on front pastedown from removed label; jacket shows only faint handling wear, still bright and clean]. (B&W photographs) Story of the two New York cops who brought down Alejandro Lopez, "known as 'The Man,' kingpin of a vast criminal empire extending from the bowels of New York City to the lush coastlines and luxurious mansions of Puerto Rico." In the face of Lopez's threats against them and their families, the two men "plunged into a nationwide manhunt, often using their own time and money. Unmoved by Lopez's bribes and threats, they fought widespread police bureaucracy and interdepartmental turf battles to close in on the man responsible for nineteen known murders and innumerable other counts of human misery."

Deathman Pass Me By: Two Years on Death Row, Brasfield, Philip, with Jeffrey M. Elliot
6 Brasfield, Philip, with Jeffrey M. Elliot Deathman Pass Me By: Two Years on Death Row
San Bernardino CA Borgo Press 1983 0893702641 / 9780893702649 First Edition Softcover Near Fine Illustrated by (cover design) Michael Pastucha 
[a tight, clean, unread copy, with just a trace of edgewear]. (Borgo Bioviews, No. 3) Series Trade PB (B&W photographs) First-person narrative by a man convicted of first degree murder and kidnapping in Wichita County, Texas, in 1978, and sentenced to death by lethal injection -- despite no hard evidence (and what evidence there was containing obvious irregularities), court-appointed attorneys who mounted no defense, witnesses who either refused to testify or could not be positive in their identification, etc. He spent two years on Death Row before his conviction was overturned, during which time he found God and became a published poet and an outspoken advocate for the abolition of the death penalty. (He was subsequently re-tried and again convicted-- apparently on the same circumstantial evidence--and remains in prison today, where he continues to write on prison and death penalty issues for various publications, and to profess his innocence. I suppose he should be thankful that his first conviction didn't come during George W.'s term as governor.)

Off the Straight and Narrow, Colgate, Caroline Bayard
7 Colgate, Caroline Bayard Off the Straight and Narrow
New York Lee Furman, Inc. (c.1937) First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dj 
[good solid clean copy, light shelfwear, tiny tear in binding at top of spine; jacket a bit scuffed, with moderate soiling and light edgewear, vertical crease down middle of spine]. This is "the story of one woman's adventures on the other side of the track." A woman of "wealth and social position," Mrs. Colgate decided to devote her efforts to "befriending some who scoffed at friendship -- wayward men, delinquent children, prisoners, and inmates of various institutions." Her field work, which took her to "juvenile courts, houses of correction, reformatories, state and county prisons, prison farms, and boys' clubs," was mostly done between 1912 and 1923, but she continued to be active in reform efforts until her death in 1940. And lest you think that this is just the sort of woman the term "do-gooder" was invented to describe, however, the jacket blurber hastens to point out that Mrs. Colgate was "an observing realist, not a sentimental uplifter," and that she was neither "a sour-faced reformer or a grim crusader." (She was definitely one of "those" Colgates, though: her husband, Sydney M. Colgate, was chairman of the board of the Colgate-Palmolive-Peet Company at the time of his death in 1930, and was succeeded by their son.)

Ten Thousand Public Enemies, Cooper, Courtney Ryley
8 Cooper, Courtney Ryley Ten Thousand Public Enemies
New York Blue Ribbon Books (c.1935) NO 4th printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dj 
[nice tight copy with only minimal wear, small piece torn away at top corner of one page (no text affected); jacket a bit worn along top and bottom edges, small tear at bottom corner of front panel, a little bit of scuffing to spine]. (B&W photographs) "An inside picture of the underground workings of crime in the United States and a description, with hundreds of hitherto unknown details, of the workings of the forces of law and order seeking to detect and capture our 10,000 public enemies." And of course the anointed head of said "forces of law and order" at the time was FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, who in his Foreword to this volume singles out Cooper as "one of the best informed writers on this subject in America." And indeed he may well have been: a former newspaperman (and before that a circus clown), he published over thirty books during his career, many on criminous subjects. This volume was the first of three that Cooper turned out between 1935 and 1938 that specifically touted the crime-fighting efforts of Hoover's FBI, at a time when the agency had not yet consolidated its position at the top of the domestic law-enforcement heap; it was also rumored that he was Hoover's ghostwriter for various magazine articles and the 1938 book "Persons in Hiding." (Hoover, in his Foreword, calls for "absolute co-ordination of Federal, State and local enforcement agencies." He disingenuously claims that his work "does not signify an attempt to usurp the law-enforcement powers of State, County, or City," while at the same time opining that "day by day, crime is laughing at localities.") Cooper was given unprecedented access to FBI files under Hoover's benevolent eye, and the list of nefarious notables whose mug shots and cards are reproduced in the book reads like a Who's Who of Depression-Era gangsters: Al Capone, "Pretty Boy" Floyd, Clyde Barrow, "Doc" Barker, Alvin Karpis, John Dillinger, "Baby Face" Nelson, and "Machine Gun" Kelly are all here, along with various lesser louts. Cooper died in 1940 under questionable circumstances: he was found hanged in the closet of a New York hotel room, and although his death was ruled a suicide, apparently his FBI file (how appropriate!) contains information indicating that he was murdered.

[brand-new book, tight, clean and flawless except for some extremely light surface wear to the jacket]. Women Then -- Women Now Series (B&W photographs) "The phenomenon of women lawyers is as recent as the women's rights movement that began in the late 1960s, but the struggle of women to obtain equality before the bar is as old as the United States. Beginning with Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams, the history of women and the law is recounted with narrative richness in this book. Women's efforts to gain a foothold in the law are considered in the context of the movements of the times, such as the abolitionist movement in the nineteenth century. Fascinating anecdotes about important though little-known women reveal their many-sided [efforts] to enter the legal profession. The contribution of African-American and Latina women are detailed."

Our Lawless Police: A Study of the Unlawful Enforcement of the Law, Hopkins, Ernest Jerome
10 Hopkins, Ernest Jerome Our Lawless Police: A Study of the Unlawful Enforcement of the Law
New York The Viking Press 1931 NO Reprint Hardcover Very Good 
(no dust jacket) [ex-private library, with three small "call numbers" written in white ink on the spine (keyed to some individualized cataloging methodology); the book itself is solid and clean, with a few interesting "extras" added by its one-time owner: his bookplate (Howard Hamilton Bliss, featuring a photo of himself out rock-climbing), several small summary reviews of the book affixed to the ffep, and a five-line pencilled critique of the book (apparently a quote from an "H.E. Barnes" at the bottom of the page)]. This exposť of police brutality grew out of the acknowledgment of government officials that Prohibition, instituted in 1919, had created huge enforcement problems, was widely evaded by the American public, and had contributed substantially to the rise of organized crime. In 1929, President Herbert Hoover in 1929 created the National Commission on Law Observance and Enforcement to look into the matter and come up with recommendations on how to address the problem through public policy. Generally known as the Wickersham Commission (after its head, former U.S. Attorney General George W. Wickersham), the 11-member group's investigations documented various negative effects of Prohibition on American society (including, surprise surprise, widespread public contempt for the law), but came down hardest of all on the police. On the one hand, they were heavily criticized for their failure to detect and apprehend the criminals (often due to corruption in their own ranks, and at various levels of government), and in addition they were hammered for being too rough on suspects when they DID detain them -- sort of a "damned if you don't and damned if you do" situation. It's this latter aspect that this book focuses on, going into great detail about brutal interrogation methods, the use of false arrest and prolonged detention, etc., and concluding (in the words of the pencil-quoted H.E. Barnes) that "the lawlessness of our law-enforcing officers is greater than that of our criminals." If you've been reading the news at all, much of what is "exposed" in this now-83-year-old book will sound shockingly contemporary, like this quote, picked at random from page 153: "First, a constabulary with too much petty authority over every class of the population will get an exalted notion of itself, [and] will be bound to develop the 'I'm the Law' attitude." Sound vaguely familiar? (It's worth noting that the book's preface is by Zechariah Chafee Jr., one of the authors of the Wickersham Commission's original report and later the author of the landmark 1941 book "Free Speech in the United States.")

Buffalo NY Prometheus Books 1993 0-87975-856-2 / 9780879758561 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj design) JJ Chrystal 
[nice copy, as-new with no discernible wear; jacket similarly nice, only slight blemish being some light creasing to the rear flap]. "In this unusual autobiographical work, imprisoned paraphiliac Ronald Keyes reveals the psychological and societal factors that contributed to his masochistic tendencies and criminal life." Under the spell of his dominatrix "Connie," who could only achieve orgasm by committing crimes, the author participated in nearly two dozen armed robberies in the Baltimore area during a two-month period in 1984 -- until, "as the final act of their sadomasochistic relationship," Connie turned him in to the cops. (Thanks, mistress!) "Caught and imprisoned, Keyes sought to understand the nature of his sexual drives. What led a successful businessman with a wife and child to abandon his family, take up with a prostitute, and go on a bizarre crime spree that wrecked his life?" This book, I guess, is the answer. (Sounds to me like just an extreme manifestation of the same old story -- i.e., guy-with-brains-in-pants.)

"A tape recorder that was being used to record the Rabbi's sermon captured the episode in all its appalling detail [and] the tape was reproduced on news broadcasts coast-to-coast." The book, based on hundreds of interviews with those who had known both Rabbi Adler and his killer, Richard Wishnetsky, is "an insightful, dramatic, and remarkable double portrait of murderer and victim."

I guess that would make this an "association copy, once removed" ( since it refers to a different book than the one actually bearing the inscription).

Fort Lee NJ Barricade Books Inc. (c.2002) 1-56980-238-6 / 9781569802380 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj Illustrated by (dj design) Greg Wilkin 
[bottom front corner of book bumped, no other significant wear; jacket shows light surface rubbing only]. (B&W photographs) The subject of this book, writer Susan Berman, was "reared in the lap of Las Vegas luxury as the daughter of Dave Berman, a notorious casino mogul and mafia leader. It wasn't until college -- well after her father's death -- that she learned what he really did. She ultimately dedicated her life to learning about Vegas and its underworld chiefs, publishing two acclaimed books on the subject." On Christmas Eve 2000, however, Susan Berman became the victim of a horrific crime herself: she was shot in the back of the head, execution-style. The investigation was possibly connected to the then-recent reopening of the case of Kathie Durst, who disappeared in 1982; her husband, Robert Durst (a college friend of Berman's), was questioned in both cases, but never charged. This book appeared just as Durst was awaiting trial in Texas for another murder, of which he was eventually acquitted (although he did later serve a prison term for bond jumping and evidence tampering). Durst's experiences were the basis for the 2010 film ALL GOOD THINGS, which starred Ryan Gosling as his cinematic alter-ego. And this breaking news (well, not quite) just in from our Wikipedia correspondent: "On March 14, 2015, Durst was arrested in New Orleans, Louisiana, on a first-degree murder warrant signed by a Los Angeles judge in relation to the Berman killing. On November 4, 2016, Durst was transferred to California and soon after was arraigned in Los Angeles on first-degree murder charges. A preliminary hearing will be held in October 2017."
