The Origins of Criminology: A Reader is a collection of nineteenth-century texts from the key originators of the practice of criminology selected, introduced, and with commentaries by the leading scholar in this area, Nicole Rafter.This book presents criminology as a unique field of study that took root in a context in which urbanization, immigration, and industrialization changed the class structure of Western nations. As relatively homogenous communities became more sharply divided and aware of a bottom-most group, the dangerous classes, a new segment of the middle class emerged: professionals involved in the work of social control. Tracing the intellectual origins of criminology to physiognomy, phrenology, and evolutionary theories, this book demonstrates criminologys background in new attitudes toward science and the development of scientific methodologies applicable to social and mental phenomena. Through an expert selection of original texts, it traces the emergence of criminology as a new field purporting to produce scientific knowledge about crime and criminals.
Pyhiinvaellus on Aki Cederbergin syvällinen, humoristinen ja henkilökohtainen kertomus kaukokaipuusta, pyhiinvaelluksesta ja sukelluksesta esoteerisen perinteen maailmaan.Intiassa ja Nepalissa kokemiensa viskinhuuruisten seikkailujen jälkeen Cederberg päätyy magian ja perinteisen joogan alkulähteille, pelättyjen “pyhien hullujen” eli naga-babojen maailmaan. Hän raottaa verhoja tähän länsimaalaisilta useimmiten suljettuun, muinaiseen perinteeseen ja tarkastelee analogian keinoin suhdettaan omaan maahansa, perinteisiinsä ja itseensä. Lopulta hän vastaanottaa initiaation ja osallistuu Kumbh Melaan, maailmaan vanhimpaan ja suurimpaan uskonnolliseen juhlaan. Todellisuus on usein tarua ihmeellisempi, ja pian Cederberg huomaa itse muuttuneensa osaksi suurta tarinan virtaa. Se on tarina vastoinkäymisten sävyttämästä sankarin tehtävästä, joka pohjimmiltaan on jokaisen ihmisen suuri matka.
La magnitud del terremoto que en 1995 asoló la ciudad japonesa de Kobe, y que se cobró más de cinco mil vidas, inspiró a Haruki Murakami seis impactantes relatos que transcurren poco después de la tragedia. Un comercial de equipos de sonido al que su mujer abandona abruptamente tras el seísmo, una adolescente huida de su casa, un chófer que trata de mitigar la misteriosa melancolía que consume a una mujer, un joven huérfano cuya existencia da un giro al descubrir parte de su pasado, un modesto empleado de banco a quien una rana gigantesca le pide ayuda para salvar a Tokio de un segundo terremoto, y un escritor con dificultades para «escribir» su propia vida son los protagonistas de los seis cuentos que componen el volumen. El protagonista omnipresente, sin embargo, es el propio seísmo, que irrumpe sutil o significativamente en las vidas de aquellos que sobrevivieron al apocalipsis. Sólo Murakami podía transmitir en seis historias tantas verdades sobre la compasión, el coraje y el sufrimiento humano
The Kitchen BabyThe Kitchen Baby begins with a live account of how author Angus Kennedy raced to his wifes aid when she unexpectedly went into labor with their fifth child in the middle of the night, forcing Angus to deliver the baby himself, with no medical assistance or even a midwife. In what has been called one of the UKs most moving childbirth stories, the author narrates the dramatic birthing scene, detailing the premature birth on the kitchen floor and the newborn babys struggle for life against the umbilical cord wrapped tight around its neck.An Unique InsightThe Kitchen Baby presents a rare, through-the-mans-eyes look into pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. Angus shares his experiences as he and his wife struggled to conceive, navigated the maze of doctors who said she would never become pregnant and the lessons learned along the way. An unique, personal insight into the feelings and emotions of men as they support their mother-to-be through conception, childbirth and beyond!A Spiritual MessageMore than just a dramatic childbirth story, The Kitchen Baby is a highly-informative book, packed with lessons and heartwarming stories of pregnancy and parenting. In turns both humorous and cynical, it delivers a deeply-spiritual, philosophical message about both the joys and challenges of bringing a child into the world. The authors writes from his experience, having fathered and raised many children, how babies plan for their parents, rather than the parents planning for the baby, and how this has shaped his approach to raising children.Perhaps most important, Angus tells of how becoming a father and learning to be a parent has guided his natural progression toward becoming a real man--one at harmony with a woman!
