Few issues in American politics inspire such passion as that of civil rights for gays and lesbians. In this group of original essays, scholars and activists writing from a number of different perspectives provide a comprehensive overview of this heated debate. Contributors thoroughly investigate the politics of the gay and lesbian movement, beginning with its political organizations and tactics. The essays also address the strategies and ideology of conservative opposition groups, such as the Christian Right. They focus on key issues for public policy, including gays and lesbians openly serving in the military, anti-discrimination laws, and the ongoing crisis of AIDS. The book ends with chapters that discuss the ways in which the political struggle for gay rights has played out in various arenas—in Congress, in the courts, in state and local governments, and in electoral politics. Forcefully argued and accessibly written, this collection is an important contribution to the current discussion about civil rights for gays and lesbians.

Close to 60,000 civil lawsuits are filed annually against criminal justice practitioners. This increasing litigation poses a significant problem for law enforcement and other personnel who must ensure they are performing their legal duties within the boundaries of case law. In brief, they not only need a working knowledge of criminal law but a firm grasp on the civil law process as well. Civil Liability in Criminal Justice provides valuable advice and protection to future officers and correctional system employees, introducing them to civil liability generally and the federal law specifically, while indicating steps that can be taken to minimize risks. The text clearly outlines the specific precedents to which both individual staff members and entire agencies must adhere and provides court decisions in common and high-liability areas. This text is one of few on the subject that combines applicable case law and related liability research, a valuable new feature for current and future policy makers and managers. It also provides an overview of current case law in high- liability areas, enhancing student knowledge and practitioner job performance. An enhanced ancillary package now offers support to both students and their instructors as they work to master this complex topic. Exercises based on ethical dilemmas and evidence-based assessments of likely trouble spots in organizational training and policy prepare the reader to avoid costly legal action in the complex worlds of policing and corrections. * Hundreds of cases are referenced throughout the text, including the latest U.S. Supreme Court decisions in civil liability suits against police and corrections officers and their agencies * Provides richly documented research findings regarding recent trends in litigation and financial penalties * Includes current thinking on avoiding lawsuits through training and policy development

There are conflicting theories and opinions about the laws, rules, and customs that regulate everyday life and about how to deal with those who violate accepted standards. Formal punishment of individuals as an organized reaction to lawbreaking prompts serious debates concerning justice versus utility, universality versus particularity, and consensus versus conflict. The problematic nature of punishment has been a major philosophical and practical concern in Western societies for centuries. Who has the right to punish? How should society punish? How much punishment is just? Punishment involves agencies and representatives of government depriving people of their liberty. It is a means of social control intended to cause a measure of "suffering" to those who violate the law and harm others. Punishing a member of society raises serious moral and ethical concerns; it also raises questions about social issues such as equality and discrimination. Punishment is a component of the criminal justice system commonly taken for granted. Most individuals have an opinion about punishment based on their general view of what is right and what is wrong. There are, however, invisible aspects of punishment that affect not only those who break the law and those directly affected by the incarceration of the lawbreaker but also the society that decides what type of punishment is meted out. The theoretical arguments and justifications for punishment reveal the values of society concerning justice, human rights, social equality, and relations between the state and its citizens.

The title of this book The Pain within my Soul speaks for itself, since the author uses real-life stories from personal experience and each story may personally touch the reader's soul. Not by chance, the subtitle of the book is Short Stories about Crime and Life, where it is sometimes hard to divide one from the other. This book introduces a collection of stories about crime and life written in different styles of writing. The author of the book, during her experience as both a journalist and a police officer, would interact with people who committed crime. That's why these stories are based on true events and real people though for ethical norms, the names of the characters and places were changed. The author defines causation of crime through her own perspective. Despite the public's negative perception towards criminals, the author tries to convey the idea that some criminals had no other choice but to commit a crime in order to survive in their tough periods of life. The author shows that a border between understanding criminals and non-criminals might be indecipherable and only one step is enough to move from a non-criminal to a criminal and vice versa. These real stories are examples of particular types of crime and issues in criminal justice system, for example, turf wars among criminal justice agencies (story: Nobody's); disadvantaged families as a major factor which leads adolescents to run away from home (story: Fruit Garden); social demographic characteristics such as: poverty, lack of education as factors which lead to prostitution (stories: On the Corner of Earth; Flower of the Blind Alley; Weeping Blizzard). Other stories provide by itself examples of different types of crimes: group rape (stories: He gave me Up; Valley of Crying Tulips), murder (story: Twisted Vine of Destiny), coerced confession (story: Two Steps into the Past; I Confess). This collection of stories will be of great interest to students of law and criminal justice as well as the general readers.
