----------trade paperback, a Near Fine copy, a wee bit of very light wear and rubbing, 384 pages, b&w photos, ---"February 2005 [was] the 125th anniversary of the Donnelly mass murder. Night Justice is the first serious re-evaluation of this crime and features previously unpublished material. Late on the frigid night of February 4, 1880, five members of the Donnelly family were slaughtered in their homes near Lucan, a hamlet outside London, Ontario. The Toronto Globe called it "the blackest crime that ever disgraced and shocked the Dominion." The killers were a mob of neighbours, a vigilante society incited by the local parish priest to take matters into their own hands. Known as "night justice," this practice was all too common in small communities. In fact, the local police constable, Michael Carroll, was a leader of the vigilante murderers. A brutal history of clan violence formed the backdrop for the murders and cover-up. Even with a witness who testified in open court?an 11-year-old boy who hid beneath a bed during the slaughter?and other evidence pointing to the culprits, only one man?the police officer ever faced murder charges, and he was acquitted. Drawing on court transcripts, archival searches, material obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Peter Edwards tells a shocking tale with fresh revelations on the Donnelly family murder and trial"---, ---contents include: THE CRIME: Midnight Massacre; Shots in the Night; Witnesses to Murder --- THE ROOTS OF MURDER: County Tipperary; Greenland; The Roman Line; The Hangman's Noose; Reunited; Leaving the Nest; The Opposition Stagecoach; Arrested Justice; A New and Bitter Enemy; The Vigilance Committee; Boiling Beef; The Final Hours ---POLITICAL CIRCUS: Character Assassination; Devout Killers; Perilous Investigation; Coroner's Inquest; Show of Support; Change of Venue; Digging Deeper; Justice on Trial; Search for Fresh Evidence; Empty Show; Celebration --- AFTERMATH: The Curtain Falls; Confessions; Low Comedy; Donnelly Lawmen; The Final Curtain; The Reckoning, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------hardcover, a solid clean Good exlibrary copy, usual library stamps and marks, some underlining and a bit of marginalia, in a Near Fine dustjacket in a library protector which has been attached to the verso of the boards, library sticker on the spine of the jacket, 208 pages, ---"What personal vendetta motivated a group of men, labelling themselves a Vigilance Society, to enter the Donnelly farmhouse in southwestern Ontario on that night in February 1880 and brutally bludgeon the family to death? According to the author, this is the wrong question to ask. In This Side of Heaven, a phrase he takes from the verse on the Donnelly family gravestone, Norman Feltes suggests that this legendary event cannot be fully understood through conventional narrative, but only as the historical product of the diverse economic, socio-political, and ideological conditions that underlay Biddulph Township during the late nineteenth century. ---Factors such as the way the region was surveyed and settled, the emerging pattern of its canal and railroads in competition with those of the United States, its distinctive wheat trade, and the patriarchal gender relations in its villages and towns, all converged in a unique set of forces that 'overdetermined' both of the murders and the trials at which the vigilantes were acquitted. Using a rigorous marxist structuralist methodology, the book draws the reader into a compelling web of economic, social, and geographical structures, showing how human actions, sometimes murderous, arise from forces larger than the individual"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
