Q: What do the following have in common? Frank Sinatra and 50 Cent; Michael Jackson and Vladimir Lenin; Eminem and Malcolm X, Al Capone and Martin Luther King; Sid Vicious and Joseph Stalin; the Kommandant of Auschwitz and Bill Gates...A: Their faces have all been recorded in police mugshots. In "Under Arrest", Giacomo Papi has assembled some 350 mugshots which tell an alternative history of the twentieth century, a compelling mosaic of the faces and the stories of those who have ended up on the wrong side of the law. Some mugshots record the faces of the innocent, the wrongfully imprisoned; others show hardened criminals, renegades, and psychopaths; still others show firebrands, revolutionaries and dictators-in-waiting. From the bleary-eyed celebrity drunk apprehended behind the wheel of his car to the mass-murder's chilling stare, this book invites you to visit a bizarre portrait gallery unlike any you have seen, in which actors rub shoulders with mob bosses, assassins with 'sixties icons, and terrorists with pop stars.
