Professor Bellamy places the theory of treason in its political setting and analyses the part it played in the development of legal and political thought in this period. He pays particular attention to the Statute of Treason of 1352, an act with a notable effect on later constitutional history and which, in the opinion of Edward Coke, had a legal importance second only to that of Magna Carta. He traces the English law of treason to Roman and Germanic origins, and discusses the development of royal attitudes towards rebellion, the judicial procedures used to try and condemn suspected traitors, and the interaction of the law of treason and constitutional ideas.

In this meticulously researched classic of the JFK conspiracy genre that Library Journal calls "sensational," Mark North argues convincingly that President John F. Kennedy died as the result of a plot masterminded by Louisiana Mafia chieftain Carlos Marcello—and, more importantly, that FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover learned early on about the plan but did nothing to stop it. Hoover warned no one—not the Dallas police, not the Secret Service. His motives, North suggests, stemmed from a fervent hatred of Kennedy and fear that the President would eventually fire him. He is documented as a close confidant of Vice President Lyndon Johnson—a man Hoover "controlled" due to blackmail and scandals. Hoover’s day–to–day running of the FBI, his strange personality, and his backroom dealings are brought to life using an extensive collection of press clippings, government documents, and other original sources. Act of Treason is a must–read for any citizen who believes the Warren Commission failed miserably in its attempt to solve one of modern America’s most pressing mysteries: Who killed JFK?

Edinburgh has become a hotbed of violence. Hate crimes are at an all-time high. The streets are awash with class A drugs and girls trafficked for prostitution. Affluent and middle-class homes are getting turned over by psychotic, gun-wielding thugs. The city's leading crime boss has recently been gunned down alongside his top lieutenants, and nobody knows who has filled the power vacuum, taking over Edinburgh's seedy underworld - a world that the tourists, and most of the locals, never see. With police numbers cut to the bone and victims, witnesses, and informants too afraid to talk, the city is in a state of perpetual fear. Detective Inspector Carson, a former Royal Marines Commando, finds himself once again on the battlefield. Only this time, it's on home ground, and the stakes have never been higher. As Carson investigates the deaths of a local politician and his family, he finds himself in the cross hairs of a sinister organisation with far-reaching tentacles. His family taken, and left for dead himself, Carson enters into a fight against the odds. He must do whatever it takes to save his family and stop his adversaries from seeing through their nefarious plan. A plan that will bring the nation to its knees.

This title, first published in 1979, was ground-breaking in its exploration of the understudied area of the Tudor law of treason. Bellamy first examines the scope of that law, noting the inheritance from the Middle Ages, the effectiveness of the new statutes and interpretation of the law by the judiciary. Mining the archives for official, legal and literary accounts, the following parts consider how the government came to hear of traitors, the use of evidence and witnesses in trials and finally the fate of the traitor at the gallows and beyond. This is a full, useful and interesting title, which will be of great value to students researching Tudor and late medieval statute law, the Tudor concept of treason and the mores of Tudor society.
