Prison Profiteers: Who Makes Money from Mass Incarceration

Prison Profiteers: Who Makes Money from Mass Incarceration Lowest new price: $11.16

List price: $18.95
Brand: Brand: New Press, The

In Prison Profiteers, co-editors Tara Herivel and Paul Wright "follow the money to an astonishing constellation of prison administrators and politicians working in collusion with private parties to maximize profits" (Publishers Weekly). From investment banks, guard unions, and the makers of Taser stun guns to health care providers, telephone companies, and the U.S. military (which relies heavily on prison labor), this network of perversely motivated interests has turned the imprisonment of one out of every 135 Americans into a lucrative business.

Called "an essential read for anyone who wants to understand what’s gone wrong with criminal justice in the United States" by ACLU National Prison Project director Elizabeth Alexander, this incisive and deftly researched volume shows how billions of tax dollars designated for the public good end up lining the pockets of those private enterprises dedicated to keeping prisons packed.

"An important analysis of a troubling social trend" (Booklist) that is sure to inform and outrage any concerned citizen, Prison Profiteers reframes the conversation by exposing those who stand to profit from the imprisonment of millions of Americans.

The Police and Society: Touchstone Readings

The Police and Society: Touchstone Readings Lowest new price: $32.47
Lowest used price: $16.88
List price: $41.95
Author: Victor E. Kappeler
Brand: Brand: Waveland Pr Inc

The articles in this collection reveal fundamental assumptions about the relationship of the police to society. Articles were selected for both their complementary and their competing natures. They serve as touchstones for one another, measuring and questioning the value of previous conceptions about how policing fits into the broader social context. Many of the articles challenge the methods by which information was acquired, how practices evolved from that information, and the background assumptions that drove the construction of practices and theories. The editor s purpose in assembling this provocative volume is to facilitate systematic inquiry to help readers discover connections, to detect mutual influence, and to trace divergences of opinion. Some of the issues raised include: What is the function of the police? What does the public expect of the police institution? How many publics are there? Who benefits from police service? How are public safety and social order secured while maintaining individual rights and freedoms? To what extent do our assumptions about the police and society reflect our values and demands? To what extent do the police generate expectations? Is policing at a critical crossroads? If we analyze the recurring, central themes in policing as informed participants, perhaps our constructions and perceptions will better reflect the dynamic interrelationships between the police and society and the efficacy of those relationships for the future.

Critical Issues in Police Civil Liability

Critical Issues in Police Civil Liability Lowest new price: $25.98
Lowest used price: $19.50
List price: $34.95
Author: Victor E. Kappeler
Brand: Brand: Waveland Press

Building on the strength of previous editions, the fourth edition presents a well-conceived, clearly stated analysis of complex issues confronting law enforcement officers and administrators. Law enforcement duties sometimes place police officers in vulnerable positions regarding their legal obligations and expose them to charges of misconduct. Civil liability is an extremely expensive proposition for police officers, law enforcement agencies, governments, and— ultimately —taxpayers. Although substantial resources are often expended by the justice system to resolve liability cases, there are benefits to citizens. When the government assumes the responsibility to provide service or to protect the public, people injured by inadequate performance of those responsibilities deserve compensation; innocent parties who suffer injury should have an avenue for redress. The potential for litigation has been an impetus for better training and more responsible practices.

Danger, Duty, and Disillusion: The Worldview of Los Angeles Police Officers

Danger, Duty, and Disillusion: The Worldview of Los Angeles Police Officers Lowest new price: $17.56
Lowest used price: $7.50
List price: $23.95
Author: Joan C. Barker
Brand: Brand: Waveland Pr Inc

An insider view of an urban subculture! While much of the literature on police analyzes critically what they do, few works address issues of how police officers feel about their chosen profession, their worldview, or their visions. This refreshingly original and unique ethnographic contribution by anthropologist Joan Barker exposes the human element--one rarely seen by non-police--of officers working for the often-controversial L.A.P.D. During her twenty years of fieldwork, Barker gathered valuable information through formal, indepth interviews and firsthand experiences, distilling her findings into an illuminating, coherent account. She discovers that five phases of occupational socialization normatively mold officers' experiences and perceptions. "Fleshing out" her discussion is the compelling narrative of "Fred," a traditional officer whose authentic voice reveals feelings and attitudes that manifest the essence of the human who does the job of policing. An "insider" view of an urban subculture usually known only from its public presentation.

The Myth of Presidential Representation

The Myth of Presidential Representation Lowest new price: $18.98
Lowest used price: $5.05
List price: $29.99
Author: B. Dan Wood

In The Myth of Presidential Representation, B. Dan Wood evaluates the nature of American presidential representation, examining the strongly embedded belief - held by the country's founders, as well as current American political culture and social science theory - that presidents should represent the community at large. Citizens expect presidents to reflect prevailing public sentiment and compromise in the national interest. Social scientists express these same ideas through theoretical models depicting presidential behavior as driven by centrism and issue stances adhering to the median voter. Yet partisanship seems to be a dominant theme of modern American politics. Do American presidents adhere to a centrist model of representation as envisioned by the founders? Or, do presidents typically attempt to lead the public toward their own more partisan positions? If so, how successful are they? What are the consequences of centrist versus partisan presidential representation? The Myth of Presidential Representation addresses these questions both theoretically and empirically.

Walking Away from Terrorism: Accounts of Disengagement from Radical and Extremist Movements (Political Violence)

Walking Away from Terrorism: Accounts of Disengagement from Radical and Extremist Movements (Political Violence) Lowest new price: $36.51
Lowest used price: $31.01
List price: $43.95
Author: John Horgan

This accessible new book looks at how and why individuals leave terrorist movements, and considers the lessons and implications that emerge from this process.

Focusing on the tipping points for disengagement from groups such as Al Qaeda, the IRA and the UVF, this volume is informed by the dramatic and sometimes extraordinary accounts that the terrorists themselves offered to the author about why they left terrorism behind. 

The book examines three major issues:

  • what we currently know about de-radicalisation and disengagement
  • how discussions with terrorists about their experiences of disengagement can show how exit routes come about, and how they then fare as ‘ex-terrorists’ away from the structures that protected them
  • what the implications of these findings are for law-enforcement officers, policy-makers and civil society on a global scale.

Concluding with a series of thought-provoking yet controversial suggestions for future efforts at controlling terrorist behaviour, Walking Away From Terrorism provides an comprehensive introduction to disengagement and de-radicalisation and offers policymakers a series of considerations for the development of counter-radicalization and de-radicalisation processes.

This book will be essential reading for students of terrorism and political violence, war and conflict studies, security studies and political psychology.

John Horgan is Director of the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at the Pennsylvania State University. He is one of the world's leading experts on terrorist psychology, and has authored over 50 publications in this field; recent books include the The Psychology of Terrorism (Routledge 2005) and Leaving Terrorism Behind (co-edited, Routledge 2008)
