"Lynne Haney is already an important voice in the sociology of welfare but this book marks her debut as a major figure in the sociology of punishment and the study of governmentality. Offending Women is a fascinating work that combines rich ethnographic detail with a structural account of the changing contours of contemporary governance. Its original contributions to prison ethnography, women's studies, and the sociology of the penal-welfare state will make it a reference point in each of these disciplines."--David Garland, author of The Culture of Control "Offending Women is an exemplary piece of work. Haney's writing is engaging, crisp, and smart. She brilliantly assesses the various intentions of the state and incarcerated women and clarifies how these intentions are based on orientations toward punishment and 'healing' that demand fundamental rethinking."--Rickie Solinger, author of Pregnancy and Power and co-editor of Interrupted Life: Experiences of Incarcerated Women in the United States "Lynne Haney brings together her stupendous skills as an ethnographer and her theoretical insights into how states work to explain how the treatment of imprisoned women has changed over the past decade. An altogether brilliant book."--Myra Marx Ferree, University of Wisconsin

The Essay Connection presents a provocative and timely collection of rhetorically arranged essays by professional and student writers that stimulate critical thinking on ethical, social, and political issues, enabling students to make connections and write with a more informed point of view. The essays range from the personal to the scientific and cover a variety of modes—including narration, process analysis, comparison and contrast, and persuasion—to prompt students' interest in different disciplines and genres. Both the professionally written essays (by scientists, economists, and journalists among others) and the student ones inspire and motivate students who are taking composition as a requirement. Most essays are printed in their entirety, serving as better models for student writing than the excerpts often found in other readers. Throughout the text, Bloom offers practical, clear advice on the art of writing that compliments the essays. In addition, rich visuals, fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction provide a full set of models to bolster critical-thinking, reading, and writing skills. The Eighth Edition offers more than 30 new essays to stimulate students' interest. In addition, an expanded argument casebook as well as new visuals, poems, and works of creative nonfiction and fiction build on the strengths of previous editions, while new material on the Online Study Center for students strengthens students' writing and reading comprehension skills. New! More than one third of the 92 readings are new, including essays by Sherman Alexie, Lynda Barry, Chang-rae Lee, Richard Rodriguez, David Sedaris, Sherry Turkle, and Mark Twain. New! Two new creative nonfiction essays (Amanda Cagle, "On the Banks of the Bogue Chitto" and Meredith Hall, "Killing Chickens") and two new works of fiction (Elizabeth Tallent, "No One's a Mystery" and Tim O'Brien, "How to Tell a True War Story") show how writers use the techniques of these genres to tell stories. New! Six new poems (plus Seamus Heaney's poem in the previous edition, "Horace and Thunder") reflect the rhetorical strategy of the chapters that they begin and also serve as commentaries on the topics of the essays. New! New, engaging visuals throughout the text—including selected new opener photos and in-text pictures; an eight-page color photo essay on "War and Peace" to complement the argument casebook; and new cartoons and graphic essays—stimulate students' motivation to learn and illustrate the complex issues within the chapters. New! A concluding feature in each chapter shows how one rhetorical strategy, such as definition, can be used in conjunction with another strategy, such as process analysis. New! The expanded argument casebook, "Controversy in Context: Implications of World Terrorism and World Peace" now includes nineteen core readings, a portfolio of photographs, and a political cartoon. New! The new book-specific Online Study Center for students compliments the book with additional resources for writing and research, visual literacy activities, annotated student essays, flashcards of glossary terms, and ACE practice quizzes that test reading comprehension. Twelve complete student essays, as well as excerpts from thirteen student writers' notebooks, provide students with real peer models. The author's emphasis on the writing process appears throughout the text, especially in chapter lessons on speaking, reading, writing, and revising. Drafts of a real student paper demonstrate the writing process at work.

Although most Canadians are familiar with surveillance cameras and airport security, relatively few are aware of the extent to which the potential for surveillance is now embedded in virtually every aspect of our lives. We cannot walk down a city street, register for a class, pay with a credit card, hop on an airplane, or make a telephone call without data being captured and processed. Where does such information go? Who makes use of it, and for what purpose? Is the loss of control over our personal information merely the price we pay for using social media and other forms of electronic communication, or should we be wary of systems that make us visible—and thus vulnerable—to others as never before? The work of a multidisciplinary research team, Transparent Lives explains why and how surveillance is expanding—mostly unchecked—into every facet of our lives. Through an investigation of the major ways in which both government and private sector organizations gather, monitor, analyze, and share information about ordinary citizens, the volume identifies nine key trends in the processing of personal data that together raise urgent questions of privacy and social justice. Intended not only to inform but to make a difference, the volume is deliberately aimed at a broad audience, including legislators and policymakers, journalists, civil liberties groups, educators, and, above all, the reading public. http://surveillanceincanada.org/

This book examines the result of the 23 June 2016 UK referendum on leaving the EU where 51.9% of the eligible voters who voted chose to leave. Politicians and media have stressed not only that leave means leave, but also that much of the British voting public was motivated to vote leave by issues of immigration and border control. Guild investigates how the issue of EU citizenship became transformed into a discussion about immigration through four themes: the negotiations between the UK and the EU before the referendum; the nature of and difference between British and EU citizenship; the issue of third country national family members and the fears incited by the referendum in light of the rejection of expertise.

In addition, chapters examine major issues and formidable crime problems, crime prevention, changing agency culture, evaluating problem-solving initiatives, cyberbullying and cybercrime, special populations, and the future of policing.
