Everyday Evils blends psychoanalytic concepts with sociology, history, anthropology, philosophy, theology and studies of violence to look at the evils committed by “ordinary” people in different contexts. Ranging from discussion of Nazi atrocities and the horrors of Islamic State to the consequences of Stockholm Syndrome, this book will appeal to scholars from across disciplines as well as anyone who has ever asked the question:"How could anyone do something like that?" Coline Covington is a Jungian analyst in private practice in London.
Luther’s 95 Theses begin and end with the concept of suffering, and the question of why a benevolent God allows his creations to suffer remains one of the central issues of religious thought. In order to chart the processes by which religious discourse relating to pain and suffering became marginalised during the period from the Renaissance to the end of the seventeenth century, this book examines a number of works on the subject translated into English from (mainly) Spanish and Italian.
When there are high crimes to be covered up, mysteries to be wrapped in enigmas, or a murderer to be liquidated - literally - there is only one man in England who can be trusted with the task: Felix Culpepper, tutor in Classics at St Wygefortis' College, Cambridge, and assassin-at-large for the British Establishment.
The year is 1678 AD. Simon Maddox, a graduate student at Christ’s College Cambridge, receives from his tutor a subject for his thesis in History: “A Century through the Eyes of One Unusual Man.” That man, his uncle Thomas, is also a graduate. He has disappeared but may still be alive, and has left Simon with his research material in a cottage in Grantchester. He must make sense of a Phoenician Symbol described by Ptolemy a thousand years earlier and its connection to the Welsh Prince Madoc who sailed to America three hundred years before Columbus in his ship ‘Gwennan Gorn’.

1 July 1969. The Investiture of the Prince of Wales.
When Arianwen Hughes is arrested driving with a home-made bomb near Caernarfon Castle, her case seems hopeless. Her brother Caradog, her husband Trevor, and their friend Dafydd are implicated in the plot, the evidence against them damning. Ben Schroeder's reputation as a barrister is riding high after the cases of Billy Cottage (A Matter for the Jury) and Sir James Digby (And is there Honey Still for Tea?). But defending Arianwen will be his greatest challenge yet. Trevor may hold the only key to her defence, but he is nowhere to be found. . .
The book nostalgically flashes back on my memories of residence at Fitzwilliam College in the mid-sixties. It was a time when the College had just moved into the Huntingdon Street building. I remember my stay at digs owned by a Greek landlady married to a World War II veteran. I remember my friends, my rides to the Sidgwick Avenue, visits to other places like Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, London and Paris but most importantly I remember my teachers in English, who were world icons.
