Webster, Richard:
The Secret of Bryn Estyn: The making of a modern witch hunt. [Included is a copy of the 2008 'Sampler' booklet with the same title, which includes a postscript about the Haut de la Garenne inquiry, 'Jounalism, Jersey and the idea of evil'.]

Oxford: The Orwell Press, 2005. First edition. xx, 722pp: with maps and a few pages of illustrations. New copy: contents completely fresh and unmarked, in the original black cloth-textured binding titled in gilt, and with the unclipped pictorial dustjacket. *** A landmark study, rigorous, brave, and compassionate, which brought to light and detailed the terrible miscarriages of justice which have ensued from the hunt for paedophiles in children's homes across the UK, and examines the social and psychological background to the phenomenon. ['The gulf between the official version of events and the version uncovered by Webster's investigation is so wide as to be incredible. So urgent is our need to rid the world of anyone who might conceivably be a paedophile, that the requirement for evidence has all but disappeared. His book is about the consequences for individuals and society when a large number of false allegations encouraged and borne forward by a wave of moral outrage are taken to be true and ratified by the courts. It takes a book like Webster's to force us to think what has become the unthinkable: that not every residential care worker is a paedophile just waiting to get caught.' (a collage of quotes, without permission, from Gerald Haigh of the TES, Jennie Bristow of Spiked, and the author.)] More copies available. For further information visit Richard Webster's website. *** Fine in fine dust-jacket.
