Illustrated. 8vo, brown clo th with silver lettering to spine. "The Mediterranean has nurtured three ofthe most dazzling civilizations of antiquity -- Egypt, Greece and Rome. It has witnessed the birth or growth of three of our greatest religions -- Ju daism, Christianity and Islam. It links three of the world's six continents-- Europe, Asia and Africa. To the peoples living around its periphery, it has served at various times as a cradle and a grave, a bond and a barrier, a blessing and a battlefield. It has inspired writers from Homer and Virgi l to Norman Douglas and Patrick Leigh Fermor. Geographically, it is unlike any other sea in the world; in historical importance also, it stands alone.[... Norwich] tells the story of the Middle Sea itself -- a story that beg ins with the Phoenicians and the Pharoahs and ends with the Treaty of Versailles after the First World War. He takes us through the Arab conquests of Syria and North Africa; the Holy Roman Empire and the Crusades; Ferdinand and Isabella and the Spanish Inquisiton; the great sieges of Rhodes and Malta by the Sultan Syleyman the Magnificent; the pirates of the Barbary Coast and the Battle of Lepanto; Nelson and Napoleon; the Greek War of Independence and the Italian Risorgimento.

OICKLE, Vernon. Busted : Nova Scotia's War on Drugs. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing Ltd, (1997). First Edition. Pp (7),viii-x,1-213,(1). Illustrated with 15 b&w photos and a map in the text. 8vo (150 x 227 mm), photo-illustrated purple cardcovers, with white, yellow, red and metallic red lettering to spine.

Vernon L. Oickle, (b. 1961, Liverpool Nova Scotia).

"Behind the pastoral beauty and serenity of Nova Scotia's numerous coastal communities a war is going on. On one side are the smugglers and dealers in narcotics, an illegal billion-dollar trade; on the other the province's law enforcement officers supported by an international network of drug-law enforcers. Caught in the middle are the drug addicts, their families, and an assortment of ordinary people who become embroiled in a deadly trade that destroys people's lives, and breaks their hearts.

Historically, the jagged coastline of Nova Scotia has been a haven for smugglers, a safe place to land and store illegal loot until it could be filtered overland to Canadian and American markets. But never have the stakes been so high or the consequences of being caught so severe. And never have so many innocent people's lives been affected by the products being smuggled, or so many local livelihoods been dependent on the spoils of the war.

In Busted, Vernon Oickle, a newspaper reporter on Nova Scotia's South Shore, traces the involvement of one man who got caught in the crossfire. His story focuses on the players in this war that threatens the fabric of our society, as they carry on their dirty business despite the concentrated efforts of the law." - cover.

Vernon L. Oickle, (b. 1961, Liverpool Nova Scotia).

Jane Hurshman Corkum (b. January 25, 1949, Brooklyn, Queens County, Nova Scotia – d. February 22, 1992, Halifax).

The unfortunate end to a disturbing story about the Nova Scotia woman convicted of murdering her abusive husband.

"On March 11, 1982, Jane Hurshman-Corkum took the life of her abusive common-law husband; ten years later, she took a second life: her own. During the time btween these tragic events, Jane insisted on two things: that murdering Billy Shatford was her only escape from a situation of unspeakable abuse, and that victims of abuse can be free from their past. Her suicide proves that escape from domestic violence is far more difficult than even she realized.

For almost a decade, Jane Hurshman-Corkum tried courageously to erase the effects of her dehumanizing life with Billy Shatford. She bravely accepted the verdict of two juries - one that absolved her of murder and one that found her guilty of manslaughter; she went back to school, found work in her chosen field, made a stable home for her sons. She remarried. Most of all she devoted her time and energy to helping other victims of domestic abuse. For many, she became their symbol of freedom This book describes the events of Jane Hurshman-Corkum's life between the day she shot Billy Stafford and the day she shot herself. It is an intimate look at a life in turmoil and a valiant attempt at self-healing through service to others. It is also a strong reminder that violence breeds violence and that the circle can only be broken by coming to terms with the fundamental causes of abuse - and by changing the conditions that allow it to continue." - from rear cover.
