Creating Language Crimes: How Law Enforcement Uses (and Misuses) Language by Roger W. Shuy (£23.00)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0195181662]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Small personal monogram to the first blank. Description: FROM THE COVER: “THIS BOOK by Roger W. Shuy, the senior figure in forensic linguistics, is the first to explain in an accessible way the vital role that linguistic evidence and its proper analysis play in criminal investigations.

Shuy provides compelling case studies of how language functions in investigations involving, among others, wired undercover operatives, and the interrogation of suspects. He makes the point that language evidence can be as important as physical evidence, but yet does not enjoy the same degree of scrutiny by investigators, attorneys, and the courts. Beyond this, however, his more controversial thesis is that police frequently misuse or manipulate language, using various powerful controversial strategies, in order to intentionally create an impression of the targets’ guilt or even to get them to confess.

This book makes its case by analyzing a dozen criminal cases involving a variety of crimes, such as fraud, bribery, stolen property, murder, and others. About half involve co-operating witnesses who do the tape recording, and the other half undercover police officers. These cases demonstrate how undercover operatives use different conversational strategies, such as overlapping conversation, ambiguity, interruption, refusing to take “no” for an answer, and others to create a negative impression of the targets on later listeners.

Creating Language Crimes provides a fascinating window into a little-known and discussed facet of law enforcement. It will appeal to anyone concerned with language (particularly sociolinguists and discourse analysts), as well as to those involved in law enforcement and criminal cases.”

West and East of Tito by Harry Hodgkinson (£9.50)Publisher: Victor Gollancz — 1952Binding: Hardback First Edition. Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the preface: “THIS BOOK DOES not attempt to tell yet again the story of the quarrel between Tito and Stalin; that has already been done adequately and often. Instead, I have tried to use their dispute to illuminate the motives and intentions of the Soviet rulers.

We need above everything else in politics some general workable theory about Soviet aims and methods; in particular how far war enters into their calculations. Without it, Stalin’s policy is an uncharted sea; his actions spring up like unexpected, inexplicable storms threatening to involve our own craft in disaster.

The quarrel between Tito and Stalin, though at first sight a local incident, does in fact offer valuable evidence from within on the true springs of action of modern communism. In that incident and in the apparently unrelated publication of Stalin’s articles on Linguistics and his revival of the doctrine of ‘Coexistence’ we have I believe an important clue to explaining the nature of the general crisis of world communism and socialism and of the Soviet Union’s own appreciation of its relations with the rest of the world.”

Machiavelli: A Dissection by Sydney Anglo (£4.00)Publisher: Paladin — 1971Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0586080546]Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Was Machiavelli a devil incarnate, a political genius — or neither?Few figures of the Renaissance have suffered such distortions of historical interpretation as Niccolo Machiavelli. Damned during and after his lifetime as a statesman of positively Satanic subtlety, praised as the first man to recognise and formulate the rules of Realpolitik, the real Machiavelli has become buried under an almost impenetrable mass of conflicting and biased political and historical opinion.

Tn this refreshingly objective book, Sydney Anglo has gone back to the writings of Machiavelli himself (examining everything from his official reports on his diplomatic missions to his more famous discourses like The Prince) and come up with a detailed analysis of his thought that should lay to rest forever the somewhat hysterical picture hitherto current. If Machiavelli emerges as something less than a demon of cynicism or a genius at reasoned political argument, at least his insights into why politicians think and act as they do are seen to be as disturbingly relevant today as in the more circumscribed but no less hazardous world of the 16th Century in Europe.”
