We know William Shakespeare matters but we cannot pinpoint, precisely, why he matters. Lacking reasons why, we do our best to involve him in others, or involve others in him. He has been branded many times over-as Catholic, Protestant, Materialist, Marxist, Psychoanalytic, Feminist, Postcolonial, Popular, Cultural, and, even, Popular-Cultural. In many ways, Shakespeare is overwrought. Why one more 'approach' to Shakespeare? One reason is because whatever these approaches say about tragedy in particular, none of them help us to feel tragedy. Or, rather, they subordinate tragedy to something else-to considerations of, say, class, race, or gender. What these approaches manage to do is explain tragedy away. What this book does is to help us feel tragedy first and foremost-hence to perceive it better. The aim of Amir Khan's counterfactual criticism of Shakespeare's tragedies, Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, A Winter's Tale and Othello, then, is precisely to reanimate the tragic effect, long since lost in some deluge of explanation.

Third in the “memorable series that will captivate fans of police procedurals and complicated sleuths,” following Murder in Retribution (Library Journal, starred review). While Acton and Doyle, two of Scotland Yard’s finest, pursue a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner, Acton’s own questionable methods may prove their undoing . . . The victims are all criminals who eluded justice—until they ran afoul of an avenger whose modus operandi is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante’s identity lies in connecting the cold cases to an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years. Meanwhile, Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he’s in contact with Acton’s nemesis, she fears she’s being used in a plot against her husband. The stakes are high, and both Doyle and Acton must work independently to outwit the players—before their lives are brought crashing down like a house of cards . . . “Cleeland writes with a light and witty touch, and there’s never a shortage of clever banter and interesting characters.”—Publishers Weekly Praise for the New Scotland Yard Mysteries “It’s been a long time since I encountered two characters this charming and engaging. I look forward to more of their adventures.” —David Morrell, New York Times–bestselling author of Ruler of the Night “Thrilling . . . will keep you guessing until the very last page!” —Victoria Thompson, USA Today–bestselling author of the Gaslight Mystery series

Dear readers, When I wrote What Really Happened I was still very raw from the firestorm that my life had become due to my unwise decision to have an affair with John Edwards, a married man. I realize now what I have never admitted before. I behaved badly. That may strike you as obvious, but it's taken me a long time to admit this, even to myself. I was attacked so often, and so viciously, that I felt that I was the victim. I felt hurt, and betrayed, and somehow that justified my actions. But of course all of the attacks and all of the betrayal were beside the point. The point is … I behaved badly. And the release of What Really Happened didn't help. When I look back at this book that I wrote, I want to throw it out and start again. But instead of attempting to erase my mistakes, I am now owning them. I've annotated the original book. Typos have been corrected but not a word has been changed, not even words that cause me to cringe when I reread them. Instead I have put notes throughout—notes that acknowledge what I couldn't when I wrote the book. Best, Rielle

There s a lot to be said for The Clarity of Hindsight and for making it to age 50! Author Julie L. Kessler has crammed a lot of living into those years, and she shares them in her insightful new book Fifty-Fifty, The Clarity of Hindsight. This compilation of lessons learned by the 50-year-old lawyer, wife, mother and world traveler contains 50 chapters that describe her fascinating travel, work and life adventures around the globe and at home. She has lived and worked abroad, speaks several languages and writes in wonderful Clarity about her often hilarious, yet sometimes heartbreaking experiences. The daughter of immigrant parents, the author notes that her mother traveled right up to the end of her life, which came just three months following her 51st birthday. In her honor, and to mid-centurions everywhere, I devote these writings. The very best is right now and exactly where you are headed. Wherever that may be.

Serrailler must confront his demons as Lafferton experiences a series of shocking crimes in this 10th book in Susan Hill’s shattering crime series Susan Hill stuns readers once again in The Benefit of Hindsight, the 10th book in her celebrated mystery series. Now recuperated after the violent incident that cost him his arm—and nearly his life—DCS Serrailler has returned to work, though he prefers to spend his spare time sketching the medieval angels being restored on the cathedral roof. With crime rates down, Lafferton has been quiet, until one night when two men open their front door to a distressing scene. Serrailler makes a serious error of judgment when handling the incident, and the stress of this, combined with the ongoing trauma of losing his arm, takes its toll. In the tradition of the fabulous mysteries of Ruth Rendell and P. D. James, The Benefit of Hindsight is Susan Hill’s best work yet—a chilling new addition to a highly acclaimed series.

Three years after the UK’s momentous EU referendum vote, multiple Brexit Secretaries and three rejected deals, the question remains: what exactly does the UK want? The UK’s financial services sector is deemed to be one of the most vulnerable to the impact of Brexit, and the consequential effect on the rest of the UK economy could be devastating. Despite benefitting from access to the Single Market, a significant proportion of the financial services industry voted ‘leave’. But rather than being driven by anti-immigration or xenophobic sentiments, research indicates it was based on a rational assessment of the cost and benefit of the EU membership, influenced by the post-crisis regulatory reform. The industry is disproportionally impacted by Brexit due to the divergence of business models within the industry, based on the relative reliance on domestic, international or European trade. Brexit – The Benefit of Hindsight analyses a number of economic indicators to answer the unanswerable question: what does the UK want? Will the UK economy suffer in the uncertainty surrounding our future or will we emerge stronger? “This short and useful book about the potential impacts of Brexit focuses on the possible effects upon financial services. It succinctly brings together evidence from a wide range of sources” David Miles, CBE, Professor of Financial Economics and former member of the Monetary Policy Committee “Overall, a fascinating read - the Founder’s Dilemma, in my opinion, added some extremely effective and fascinating psychological depth”. Paul Roberts, Business consultant and author of The Economist Guide to Project Management.

You Wonder How Someone Can Let Things Get So Extreme. In Hindsight, So Much Is Clear. Lisa and Sharon are sisters who grew up together in what appeared to be a typical suburban family. After their parents divorced, they lived with their mother in the same house throughout their childhoods and visited their father every other weekend. From the outside, everything looked fine. But by their twenties, their lives diverted radically. While Sharon moved into a career, started a family, and embarked on her adult life, Lisa tumbled in a downward spiral of lying, addiction, depression, and shame. In this woven memoir, the sisters share the memories of their childhoods and examine the differences between their personalities and perspectives that led them down such different paths. Through it all they shared a bond that kept them connected and allowed them not only to overcome trauma and challenges, but to achieve overwhelming success. It's their hope that with this book, you too can see that it's possible to not only overcome your situation, but ultimately thrive and become the person you want to be.

How should we think about these radical technologies? Too often our social reactions to new technologies occur only in hindsight, after a technology has penetrated the marketplace. However, recent experience teaches that much may be gained by practising forethought and foresight. Emerging Technologies addresses the ethical, legal, and social dimensions of emerging technologies and assesses their social and policy implications. Contributors examine the development, impact, and governance of new technologies emerging from a variety of fields, including biotechnology, genetics, stem cell research, pharmacology, and nanotechnology.

The Role of Empathy in Hindsight Bias

Hindsight bias has been operationally defined as “...the tendency for people with outcome knowledge (hindsight) to believe falsely that they would have predicted the reported outcome of an event” (Hawkins and Hastie, 1990, pg. 311). The role of empathy in hindsight bias has not received systematic attention. Previous research has shown that giving participants prevention information increased hindsight bias (Kubany, 2005). Thus, the current study hypothesized that hindsight participants placed in empathic situations should show greater probability judgments for the outcome than hindsight participants in no empathic conditions, and both should be greater than participants in foresight conditions. Participants were 166 male and female college students recruited from Introductory Psychology classes at a Midwestern university. For the current study, the empathy manipulation did not produce significant results. This could be due to the story content, the empathy induction method, or the time of the empathy assessment. Overall, no effect for hindsight bias was demonstrated. The empathy manipulation was not shown to be effective nor did the prevention information appear to increase levels of Hindsight Bias/Responsibility. These results, which contradict previous research, indicate need for further exploration of hindsight bias, which could impact therapist effectiveness and the symptom severity of mental health diagnoses.
