Bringing together ground-breaking forensic discoveries - including vital DNA evidence - and gripping historical detective work, Naming Jack the Ripper constructs the first truly convincing case for identifying the world's most notorious serial killer. In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a shawl believed to have been left beside the body of the fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes. He knew that, if genuine, the shawl would be the only piece of crime scene evidence still in existence. It was the start of an extraordinary seven-year quest for Russell as he sought to authenticate the shawl and learn its secrets. He had no idea that this journey would take him so far. After undergoing extensive forensic testing by one of the country's top scientists, the shawl was not only shown to be genuine, and stained with Catherine Eddowes' blood, but in a massive breakthrough the killer's DNA was also discovered - DNA that would allow Russell to finally put a name to Jack the Ripper . . .

This volume contains nine personal essays on six prominent classic authors written for the average reader who is minimally familiar with the authors, probably just heard of them by name, and who would like an introduction to these literary figures and their works. The authors have been carefully chosen to represent the early classical Italian and British tradition, Dante Alighieri, John Donne, John Milton, and the 20th century British and American tradition, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Evelyn Waugh, Flannery O’Connor. The underlying argument of the book is that the authors’ Christian faith gave impetus to their creative output. Although all the observations about the authors and their works are fully researched and based on Professor Fiore’s years as professor and critic, a conscious effort has been made to avoid esoteric research problems, and their consequent footnotes, in an effort to present a readable and intimate approach to the writers. The book is ideal for the general reader, the undergraduate student, and the lover of great literature.

No murderer in history is more enduringly fascinating, notorious, or mysterious than Jack the Ripper. And few are as cinematic, instantly evoking images of menacing alleyways, flickering gaslights and hansom cabs, swirling fog, prostitutes in their tawdry finery, and the cape-shrouded figure of a faceless stalker. In this absorbing guide, Denis Meikle looks at Jack the Ripper on the large and small screen. Close attention is paid to such standards as Baker and Berman's 1958 "Jack the Ripper" and Hammer Studio's 1971 "Hands of the Ripper, " as well as many less familiar examples of the Ripper genre. Meikle brings the story right up to the present with a penetrating account of the filming of "From Hell, " based on the groundbreaking graphic novel by Alan Moore and starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Horror, costume drama, conspiracy theory: all the cinematic angles are explored, as the author uncovers the murky origins of the slasher genre.
