M. Forbes: Beattie and his Friends
Though James Beattie (1735-1803) was not a philosopher of the first rank, he was a prominent figure in the Scottish Enlightenment. He held the chair of moral philosophy at Marischal College Aberdeen from 1760 until 1797 and also enjoyed some reputation as a poet. This standard biography was written by his great-grand-niece, who inherited his papers.

J. Martin Stafford: Ched Evans Vindicated
In April 2012, Sheffield United and Welsh International footballer Ched Evans was wrongly convicted of rape on the most tenuous and controversial evidence. He served 2½ years of a five-year sentence. He consistently maintained his innocence. After four long years, his conviction was overturned, and at a retrial in October 2016 he was speedily and unanimously acquitted.
The author discusses the many issues raised by this case. He criticises the Crown Prosecution Service, the first jury, and the Court of Appeal for their roles in this long-running miscarriage of justice; castigates the media for promoting a hostile climate of near-hysteria; and reproves politicians for their unprincipled attitude.
