Crime Wthout Borders examines the globalization of crime and justice in today's contemporary society. It not only discusses the nuts and bolts of international crime and international law enforcement, but also raises abstract, theoretical issues for debate and asks critical questions about the best ways to think about international criminal justice problems. Throughout the book, it places global crime within the context of contemporary politics and current events. Hot topics such as terrorism, drug trafficking, and cybercrime are addressed throughout and connections between globalization, politics and criminal justice reflect the modern realities of international and transnational crime.

The Fifteenth Annual International Police Executive Symposium brought together 65 police executives, government officials, academics, and researchers to discuss issues relating to all aspects of policing in a global community. It focused on policing without borders, the need for national and international cooperation among policing agencies, and the need for cooperation between the police, the academic community, private policing agencies, and the general public. Drawn from the presentations made at this symposium and supplemented with additional input from eminent experts, Police Without Borders: The Fading Distinction between Local and Global reflects the current status of research on this timely and critical topic. Topics discussed include: Policing activity, human rights, and corruption Female policing in India compared to other countries Challenges and obstacles in policing in Slovenia, China, Asia, and the Pacific Strategies for preventing juvenile delinquency in Japan and Hong Kong The threat caused by nonreturnable arrest warrants in Canada An insider’s look at the United Kingdom’s Integrated Special Branch, an intelligence unit Virtual organized crime in cyberspace A successful public housing safety initiative in the Eastern District of New York Highlighting individual differences in police theory, style, and practice around the world, this volume opens a dialogue in which police agencies and academics can learn from other cultures, recognize their similarities, and move towards an improved global policing methodology.

Law Enforcement Networks and the Challenges of Crime Control

Globalization has had a sharp impact on the definition of ‘national security,’ as the interconnectedness of many threats calls for them to be addressed at the national and global level simultaneously. Law enforcement efforts must increasingly include elements of international and transnational communication and cooperation. Police forces in different countries must find common ways to share data and track international crime trends. This timely work analyzes key challenges confronting the law enforcement community, with regards to international crime, particularly illegal trafficking and terrorism. The contributions in this volume are the result of a series of workshops that brought together international law enforcement officials, researchers, and representatives from intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), to examine the need for international police cooperation, the specific challenges this presents, and to propose solutions. This work will be of interest to researchers in law enforcement, criminal justice, crime prevention, and international relations.

Biker Gangs and Transnational Organized Crime

Biker Gangs and Transnational Organized Crime, Second Edition, describes and analyzes a rapidly expanding global problem: criminal acts committed by motorcycle gangs. Thomas Barker, one of the world’s top experts on outlaw biker gangs, offers fascinating details about the Bandidos, the Vagos, the Mongols, and other "one percenters" (criminal biker gangs, as opposed to the vast majority of motorcycle enthusiasts). He combines this data with a strengthened conceptual framework that makes sense of this complicated picture. U.S.-based motorcycle gangs like the Hells Angels have proliferated, especially in Canada and Europe, to the point where these gangs have more members in other countries than in the United States. Increasingly more often in recent years their crimes are not limited to rumbles or drug use—these gangs challenge the dominance of organized crime, leading to violent conflicts between the rivals. Germany, Scandinavia, the UK, the Netherlands, and Canada are particularly hard-hit by this rising violence. One of Barker’s unique contributions is his Criminal Organization Continuum, building on the groundbreaking network approach to organized crime proposed by Klaus von Lampe. Introduced in the first edition, Barker elaborates his continuum tool and makes it more multi-dimensional to help refine the definition of adult criminal gangs. The product of years of research, this book lays the groundwork for further study by offering students, police, and researchers the most thorough account available of outlaw motorcycle gangs.

This book examines the reported criminal behavior of the entire spectrum of 1% biker clubs and members. It identifies the clubs whose members have been involved in criminal behavior and classifies their behaviors as individual, group, or club- sponsored/condoned behavior. While other books examine the criminal exploits of one or more of what are called the "Big Five" biker clubs because of their size and sophistication, or the sensational crimes of lesser known 1% biker clubs or club members, this book pays attention to the criminal activities of individuals, groups and chapters of other clubs as well. The book is based on journalistic accounts and autobiographies of former and present members of biker clubs, academic/scholarly works, law enforcement/government reports, articles from newspapers and biker web sites, and a content analysis of federal and state court cases regarding bikers and motorcycle clubs. Text enhanced with numerous photos and figures.

Trevor Noah kam 1984 im Township Soweto als Sohn einer Xhosa und eines Schweizers zur Welt. Zu einer Zeit, da das südafrikanische Apartheidsregime „gemischtrassige“ Beziehungen weiterhin unter Strafe stellte. Als Kind, das es nicht geben durfte, erlebte er Armut und systematischen Rassismus, aber auch die mutige Auflehnung seiner "farbenblinden" Eltern, die einfallsreich versuchten, Trennungen zwischen Ethnien und Geschlechtern zu überwinden. Heute ist er ein international gefeierter Comedian, der die legendäre "The Daily Show" in den USA leitet und weltweit – ob Sydney, Dubai, Toronto, San Francisco oder Berlin – in ausverkauften Sälen auftritt. In "Farbenblind" erzählt Trevor Noah ebenso feinsinnig wie komisch in achtzehn Geschichten von seinem Aufwachsen in Südafrika, das den ganzen Aberwitz der Apartheid bündelt: warum ihn seine Mutter aus einem fahrenden Minibus warf, um Gottes Willen zu erfüllen, welche Musik er für einen tanzenden Hitler aufzulegen pflegte, um sein erstes Geld zu verdienen, und wie ihn eine Überwachungskamera, die nicht einmal zwischen Schwarz und Weiß unterscheiden konnte, vor dem Gefängnis bewahrte.

In the spring of 2006, millions of immigrants and supporters organized in cities and small towns across the United States to defend their rights following the passage of HR4437, a bill designed to punish unauthorized immigrants. In an unprecedented show of force, tens of thousands of workers marched out of meatpacking plants, factories, restaurants, landscape businesses and stores, while students—many of them the US-born children of immigrants—staged school walkouts. Thousands also observed a one-day national consumer boycott to demonstrate the economic power of immigrant communities. The spring 2006 mobilizations—and the ensuing backlash from anti-immigrant sectors—pushed the topic of immigration to the front and center of U.S. politics. Polls show the public increasingly divided, with the debate framed as a choice between “deport them all” and “give everyone amnesty.” But dialogue is possible when we dig deeper. Why are people leaving their homes? Why are they coming here? What is the impact of our current enforcement policies? What kinds of alternatives exist? Backed with a wide range of cited sources, The Politics of Immigration tackles questions and concerns about immigration with compelling arguments and hard facts, laid out in straightforward language and an accessible question-and-answer format. For immigrants and supporters, the book is an effective tool to confront common myths and misinformation. For teachers, it provides a useful framework on the current debate, and ample opportunities for students to reach out and explore the intersecting issues. Those who believe immigrants steal jobs from citizens, drive down wages, strain public services, and threaten our culture will find such assumptions challenged here, while people who are undecided about immigration will find the solid data and clear reasoning they need to develop an informed opinion.

Dieser Roman gibt dem namenlosen Toten aus »Der Fremde« von Camus ein Gesicht Ein Roman aus Algerien, der um die Welt geht: in Frankreich ein Riesenbestseller, in den USA und England als literarische Sensation gefeiert, jetzt in deutscher Übersetzung. Die Geschichte des namenlosen Arabers aus Camus’ weltberühmtem Roman »Der Fremde« – erzählt von dessen Bruder. Der alte Mann, der Nacht für Nacht in einer Bar in Oran seine Geschichte erzählt, ist der Bruder jenes Arabers, der 1942 von einem gewissen Meursault am Strand von Algier erschossen wurde – in einem der berühmtesten Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts. 70 Jahre später, mit all dem Ärger, der Angst und Frustration eines Lebens im Schatten dieses Todes, gibt der alte Mann seinem Bruder seinen Namen zurück. Der Araber aus Camus’ Roman »Der Fremde« bekommt so eine Identität und eine Geschichte. Eine Geschichte, die untrennbar mit der Algeriens verknüpft ist und doch gleichzeitig so berührend und persönlich, dass man das Buch nicht mehr aus der Hand legen kann. Ein großer Roman darüber, wie die Vergangenheit unsere Gegenwart prägt, und über die ungebrochene Kraft der Literatur, eine tiefere Erkenntnis, eine verborgene Wahrheit ans Licht zu bringen. Das Buch gilt jetzt schon als Klassiker – gleichwertig zu Camus’ Roman: »Ein großartiger Roman. In Zukunft wird man ›Der Fremde‹ und ›Der Fall Meursault – eine Gegendarstellung‹ nebeneinander lesen.« Le monde des livres

The companion text to Occupational Therapy without Borders - Volume 1: learning from the spirit of survivors! In this landmark text writers from around the world discuss a plurality of occupation-based approaches that explicitly acknowledge the full potential of the art and science of occupational therapy. The profession is presented as a political possibilities-based practice, concerned with what matters most to people in real life contexts, generating practice-based evidence to complement evidence-based practice. As these writers demonstrate, occupational therapies are far more than, as some critical views have suggested, a monoculture of practice rooted in Western modernity. Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu captures the ethos of this book, which essentially calls for engagements in the service of a purpose that is larger than the advancement of our profession's interests: "Your particular approach to advancing our wellbeing and health strikes me as both unique and easily taken for granted. Whilst you value and work with medical understandings, your main aim seems to go beyond these. You seem to enable people to appreciate more consciously how what we do to and with ourselves and others on a daily basis impacts on our individual and collective wellbeing. As occupational therapists you have a significant contribution to make [.] allowing people from all walks of life to contribute meaningfully to the wellbeing of others." Links philosophy with practical examples of engaging people in ordinary occupations of daily life as a means of enabling them to transform their own lives Includes contributions from worldwide leaders in occupational therapy research and practice Describes concrete initiatives in under-served and neglected populations Looks at social and political mechanisms that influence people’s access to useful and meaningful occupation Chapters increase diversity of contributions – geographically, culturally and politically Emphasis on practice, education and research maintains academic credibility A glossary and practical examples in nearly every chapter make text more accessible to students

Die Dringlichkeit und die Geduld

"Für die Recherchen zu seinem Roman Die Wahrheit über Marie stieg er sogar zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben auf ein Pferd; für den gleichfalls in dem Buch beschriebenen Herzinfarkt wollte er es dann doch nicht so weit treiben, es auf einen Selbstversuch ankommen zu lassen", schreibt Bernard Pivot, Frankreichs Literaturpapst, in seiner begeisterten Kritik über dieses neue Buch Jean-Philippe Toussaints, das im März anlässlich seiner aktuellen Ausstellung im Pariser Louvre "Toussaint: La Main et le Regard - Livre/Louvre" erschien: luzide Aufsätze über Literatur, Lesen und das eigene Schreiben, eine charmante Hommage an die Literatur, brillante Texte, anekdotisch-unterhaltsame Miniaturen, die mit großer intimer Kenntnis und Wissen über große Literatur sprechen. Wie beiläufig, unterhaltsam und doch so ungeheuer scharfsinnig führt Toussaint den Leser in sein literarisches Universum, erzählt von seinen Lektüren, von seinen ersten Schritten als junger Autor, von den berühmtesten der berühmten Autoren der Literaturgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts und blickt humorvoll-analytisch hinter die Kulissen der Weltliteratur. Die literarischen Begegnungen mit Proust, Kafka und Dostojewski und die Erweckungserlebnisse, die diese Lektüren zur Folge hatten, runden das Bild ab. Und dann natürlich die folgenschwerste Begegnung, die Begegnung mit dem Werk Becketts, dem er dann eines Tages in einem dunklen Flur persönlich gegenübersteht. Jean-Philippe Toussaint lebt in Brüssel und auf Korsika. Zuletzt erschien in der FVA sein Roman Die Wahrheit über Marie. Der 2012 erschienene Band "Die Dringlichkeit und die Geduld" erhielt begeisterte Kritiken und erreichte Platz 2 der Essay-Bestsellerliste von L'Express in Frankreich. "Ich empfehle die Lektüre von Die Dringlichkeit und die Geduld allen, die davon träumen zu schreiben oder gerade damit angefangen haben." Bernard Pivot, Le Journal du Dimanche
