"Best known for her novels and longer philosophical works, Iris Murdoch is also a brilliant essayist and critic. Existentialists and Mystics gathers together for the first time in one volume the most influential and inspiring of her essays and shorter pieces." "The selection, by Professor Peter Conradi, starts with an illuminating interview of Dame Iris Murdoch by Bryan Magee, and is organized to illustrate her training and development as a thinker, her rejection of the sterility of Anglo-American and Sartrean philosophers alike, and her journey toward Platonism and a practical mysticism. She negotiates her ideological opponents with elegance and scruple, and draws on a novelist's insight into art and literature to throw new light on philosophy."--Jacket

The red ripper by Peter J Conradi( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The shocking true story of the Russian serial who brutally murdered more than fifty victims-and evaded capture for over a decade. By the time he was brought to trial in 1992, Soviet serial killer Andrei Chikatilo had killed more than fifty women and children, often sexually abusing them and leaving their bodies mutilated beyond recognition. Although he was initially arrested in 1984, the police lacked enough evidence to pin the unsolved murders on him and he was able to torture and kill dozens more before his eventual conviction. Compiling exclusive interviews and trial transcripts, journalist and editor at London's Sunday Times Peter Conradi reveals how the grandfather and former teacher carried out a horrific twelve-year killing spree right under the nose of authority. Based on extensive research into Chikatilo's past and the elements of Soviet society that allowed his crimes to go unsolved for so long, Conradi delves into the life of one of history's most prolific and disturbing serial killers. Interviews with Moscow police detectives detail the fervent hunt for the man who preyed on young children, prostitutes, and runaways-a search that turned up many dead ends and false convictions before a massive undercover surveillance effort ultimately nabbed Chikatilo. A chilling look into the deranged mind of a monster, The Red Ripper is a comprehensive and shocking true crime account-plus photos-of one of the twentieth century's deadliest killers and the manhunt to catch him
