              This text makes a primary and informed contribution to a subject that is under-researched in the U.K.-the suicide of those who work in the U.K. police service- by offering an analysis of U.K. case studies of officers and staff who either have completed suicide or experienced suic...ide ideation, and referring to the likely prime suicide precipitators of these situations. This analysis is followed by an examination of literature that discusses general and police-specific suicide. The text then examines intervention measures and support mechanisms that are currently offered to those working in the police service, as well as other measures that might be introduced in the future. Designed for criminal justice professionals and affected laypeople, including the families of those in police service, Police Suicide is a crucial text for any who have an interest in the holistic and psychological welfare of police officers and staff.

              Whilst Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) is perhaps best for his plays such as Uncle Vanya and The Seagull, he was also a prolific author of short stories. Richard, whose interest in the work of Chekhov was sparked by his appearance as Astrov in a stage production of Uncle Vanya, also in...troduces the collection with a brief overview of each of the stories and his thoughts on why Chekhov's short stories are not to be missed. The collection contains the following stories: Ward 6: In a mental asylum, a patient comes into conflict with a director of the institution. The Kiss: During a party, a man becomes infatuated by a woman who accidentally kisses him in the dark. Betrothed: A young woman strives to asset her independence by choosing education over an arranged marriage. The Black Monk: An ageing scholar experiences strange hallucinations. Is he a genius, or is he insane? Neighbours: A beautiful young woman subverts society expectations by going to live with her neighbour, an older, married man. The Student: A depressed young student has his spirits lifted by recounting an religious story to two strangers.

              The Tattooist of Auschwitz

              The Tattooist of Auschwitz (Audio disc / Other, Simultaneous Release)

              By Morris, Heather; Read by Armitage, Richard; Producer Marshall Media, John

              The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews, who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratc...hing numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Lale used the infinitesimal freedom of movement that this position awarded him to exchange jewels and money taken from murdered Jews for food to keep others alive. If he had been caught he would have been killed; many owed him their survival. There have been many books about the Holocaust - and there will be many more. What makes this one so memorable is Lale Sokolov's incredible zest for life. He understood exactly what was in store for him and his fellow prisoners and he was determined to survive - not just to survive, but to leave the camp with his dignity and integrity intact, to live his life to the full. Terrible though this story is, it is also a story of hope and of courage. It is also - almost unbelievably - a love story. Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale - a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight and he determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure that Gita did, too. His story - their story - will make you weep, but you will also find it uplifting. It shows the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances. Like many survivors, Lale and Gita told few people their story after the war. They eventually made their way to Australia, where they raised a son and had a successful life. But when Gita died, Lale felt he could no longer carry the burden of their past alone. He chose to tell his story.

              It is just before the outbreak of World War I and Britain must enlist the aid of Russia. Czar Nicholas's nephew is to visit London for secret naval talks with Lord Walden, who has lived in Russia and has a Russian wife, Lydia. But there are other people who are interested in the ...arrival of Prince Alexei: the Waldens' only daughter, Charlotte - wilful, idealistic, and with an awakening social conscience; Basil Thompson, head of the Special Branch; and, above all, Feliks Kschessinky, the ruthless Russian anarchist. No one could have foretold that Lydia should recognise Feliks, or that she might put her own daughter's life at risk for his sake. As the secret negotiations progress, the destinies of these characters become ineluctably enmeshed. And as Europe prepares for the catastrophe of war, the final private tragedy which will shatter the complacency of the Waldens is acted out.

              The Bloody Chamber is a titillating series of dark, sensual and fantastical stories, inspired by well-known fairy tales and folklore. Dissatisfied with the unrealistic portrayal of women in these legendary fables, Carter turns them on their head, introducing subversively dark, se...nsual and Gothic narratives. Breathing new and unexpected life into favourite childhood characters such as Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard and Beauty and the Beast, Carter shocks, seduces and amuses the listener with her unique, iconic and surrealist re-imagining.
