Vengeance In Medieval Europe from the Author: Daniel Lord Smail. How did medieval society deal with private justice, with grudges, and with violent emotions? This ground-breaking reader collects for the first time a number of unpublished or difficult-to-find texts that address violence and emotion in the Middle Ages. The sources collected here illustrate the power and reach of the language of vengeance in medieval European society. They span the early, high, and later middle ages, and capture a range of perspectives including legal sources, learned commentaries, narratives, and documents of practice. Though social elites necessarily figure prominently in all medieval sources, sources concerning relatively low-status individuals and sources pertaining to women are included. The sources range from saints' lives that illustrate the idea of vengeance to later medieval court records concerning vengeful practices. A secondary goal of the collection is to illustrate the prominence of mechanisms for peacemaking in medieval European society. The introduction traces recent scholarly developments in the study of vengeance and discusses the significance of these concepts for medieval political and social history.

Vengeance from the Author: George Jonas. In 1972, 11 Israeli athletes were murdered at the Munich Olympics. This is the chilling account of how they were avenged. First published in 1984, George Jonas’s #1 bestseller Vengeance has become a real-life espionage classic. The story of five ordinary young Israelis whose mission it was to hunt down and kill the terrorists responsible for the massacre of eleven athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics, Vengeance plunges the reader into an explosive world of terrorism and political murder. This is an account of what happened when five idealistic volunteer agents were sent to track down and kill the central figures of the PLO's Munich operation, told from the point of view of "Avner," a member of the team chosen to avenge the monstrous crime, and the first Mossad agent to come out of "deep cover" to tell his story. His description of the mechanics, the horrors and the unrelenting suspense of this mission surpasses the wildest fabrications of today’s blockbuster movies and bestselling crime thrillers. As these men moved from country to country, changing identities and risking their lives, they soon became targets themselves—tracked, hunted and even killed. A profoundly human story, Vengeance explores firsthand the revulsion and doubt that came to torment the Israeli agents, inexorably changing their view of the mission and ultimately how they felt about themselves. It is also a stark examination of the timeless concerns that continue to plague our consciousness today: the nature of good and evil, and the difference between right and wrong.

Vengeance from the Author: Carl Bilicska. Vengeance is rooted in the rich legends of the infamous Salem Witch Trials and Dudleytown, Connecticut, the self-proclaimed most haunted spot in New England. Dudleytown was founded in the early seventeen hundreds by the four Dudley brothers who had exiled themselves to escape the legacy of guilt left them by their ancestors. Their disgrace began with their great-grandfather, Edmund Dudley, who was convicted of treason and beheaded, and culminated with their father Thomas Dudley. Thomas Dudley was a persistent Puritan heresy-hunter who proscribed harsh punishments, including the hangings of accused witches in Boston and Salem. It was Thomas's curse that followed the four brothers into this quaint New England settlement deep into the Connecticut woods and almost destroyed them all.For two hundred years Vengeance was imprisoned in a place isolated from the inherent evils of mankind.For two hundred years Vengeance waited until three young men's playful whim brought them to him and unleashed a terror that was two hundred years in the making. It was now too late to hide the evil away as the Dudley's had done, Josh Anson would have to find a way to satisfy the ancient crimes of Salem, or die trying.
