  4. Recommended by CHOICE Reviews - City Halls and Civic Materialism

    "Contributors offer valuable discussion of the post–WW II German Rathaus as an attempt to deal with an "uncertain" national identity and provide a good examination of architecture in the service of Mussolini’s Fascist state. A welcome global approach that features material on Bombay, Jakarta, Mexico, and Korea is revealing, especially on the influence of colonialism; however, more could have been said about sources of indigenous, pre-European civic engagement. Endnotes and numerous, adequate, black-and-white illustrations are provided but no bibliography. Although this volume shows the inevitable fragmentation typical of such an enterprise, the attention to unfamiliar themes and innovative approaches means that this book will interest serious students of civic architecture.Summing Up: Recommended" --W. S. Rodner, Tidewater Community Colleg, CHOICE Reviews, January 2015

  6. Recommended by CHOICE Reviews - Voices from American Prisons

    'Heretofore, 'voices' from US prisons were usually angry men (white and black) who had axes to grind with whomever they blamed for their imprisonment. It is, therefore, refreshing to see in this small volume by sociologist Stern (Harvard) not angry voices, but rather uplifting, spiritual, and deeply thoughtful words examining the humanity of men and women locked up inside of the many prisons across the US... The author's epilogue explains that education programs alone will not end the inhumanity of punishment, nor will it end mass incarceration. Stern is an advocate of the Project Half initiative, which she believes can offer cost-effective policies that will eventually end both incarceration and recidivism... Especially for graduate students in sociology, criminology and social work, and criminal justice professionals working to rehabilitate prisoners. Summing Up: Recommended' - Earl Smith, Professor Emeritus of Sociology,Wake Forest University, Choice Reviews, January 2015

  7. Highly Recommended by CHOICE Reviews - Gun Crime in Global Contexts

    'Synthesizing five communities of academic interpretation in the gun proliferation and violence debate - criminology of gun violence, conflict studies of failed states, studies of weapon proliferation or trade, ethnography of violence and peacemaking, and the inter/national politics of gun control - Squires concludes that the metaphor of the authoritarian Western game of chance - rock, paper, scissors - may be used to illustrate the concept of the separation of unequal powers in liberal democracies that permit the hegemony of the powerful gun lobby, despite overwhelming evidence that the gun is a defective product that does more harm than good to the social contract...Highly recommended.' - Onwubiko Agozino, Professor of Sociology, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, CHOICE Reviews, January 2015.

  9. Awarded Outstanding Academic Title, 2014 by Choice Reviews - Successful Adaptation to Climate Change

    "This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking volume, with surprising insights. Of the many books on climate change, this one really hits on the essentials of "What are we going to do about it?" and "Why haven't we done anything yet?" … This work will make readers think and realize that although addressing climate change is complicated, achieving workable solutions is even more complicated. Well-written and engaging reading for both social and physical scientists working on or interested in climate change or associated issues. Summing Up: Highly recommended.

  10. New - The Routledge Handbook of Poverty in the United States

    In the United States, the causes and even the meanings of poverty are disconnected from the causes and meanings of global poverty. The Routledge Handbook of Poverty in the United States provides an authoritative overview of the relationship of poverty with the rise of neoliberal capitalism in the context of globalization.

    Key issues examined by the international selection of leading scholars in this volume include income distribution, employment, health, hunger, housing and urbanization. With parts focusing on the lived experience of the poor, social justice and human rights frameworks – as opposed to welfare rights models – and the role of helping professions such as social work, health and education, this comprehensive handbook is a vital reference for anyone working with those in poverty, whether directly or at a macro level.
