With Goliath attempting to replace Thursday at every opportunity with synthetic Thursdays, and a call from the Bookworld to hunt down Pagerunners who have jumped into the Realworld, Thursday's convalescence is going to be anything but restful as the week ahead promises to be one of the Next family's oddest

Social order and the fear of crime in contemporary times by Stephen Farrall( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fear of crime has been recognized as an important social problem and empirical studies reveal that a significant minority of citizens in many countries express a fear of crime. In this book the authors review the literature and argue that old surveys involving intensity questions such as 'how worried are you about ... ' may actually conflate an 'expressive' component of the fear of crime with an 'experiential' component. The authors contend that we can deepen our understanding of the term 'fear of crime' if we distinguish between those who actually fear crime in real sense ('experiential') from those who express a general anxiety about crime without having cause to fear crime in their day-to-day lives ('expressive')." "In a new approach, the authors combine quantitative data over the past decade with new theoretically informed questions to help identify the 'expressive' and 'experiential' groups. The book explores the extent to which these groups have different social attitudes and backgrounds, and whether there is not one, but several social and cultural forms of the fear of crime."--Jacket
A king's ransom by Sharon Kay Penman( Recording )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the New York Times-bestselling author of Lionheart comes the dramatic sequel, telling of the last dangerous years of Richard, Couer de Lion's life. This long-anticipated sequel to the national bestseller Lionheart is a vivid and heart-wrenching story of the last event-filled years in the life of Richard, Coeur de Lion. Taken captive by the Holy Roman Emperor while en route home--in violation of the papal decree protecting all crusaders--he was to spend fifteen months imprisoned, much of it in the notorious fortress at Trefils, from which few men ever left alive, while Eleanor of Aquitaine moved heaven and earth to raise the exorbitant ransom. For the five years remaining to him, betrayals, intrigues, wars, and illness were ever present. So were his infidelities, perhaps a pattern set by his father's faithlessness to Eleanor. But the courage, compassion, and intelligence of this warrior king became the stuff of legend, and A King's Ransom brings the man and his world fully and powerfully alive"--
