In modern industrial societies, the demand for policing services frequently exceeds the current and foreseeable availability of public policing resources. Conversely, developing nations often suffer from an inability to provide a basic level of security for their citizens. Community Policing and Peacekeeping offers a fresh overview of the challenges of community policing in advanced societies and peacekeeping in weak nations, demonstrating how going beyond traditional models of police work can provide solutions in troubled communities. Responding to the needs of the community Featuring contributions from world-class scholars, this volume emphasizes the importance of cultural and political sensitivities in police work. Offering comparative perspectives from the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, South Africa, and China, it explores the paradigm of community policing that involves consultation with community members, responsiveness to their security needs, collective problem-solving to identify the most appropriate means of meeting these needs, and mobilization of police services. Exploring the challenges and pitfalls of these collaborative efforts, the book examines how traditional models of police work have evolved to embrace the needs of communities. Keeping peace at home and abroad The second part of the book focuses on police peacekeeping efforts in countries torn apart by civil strife. It includes chapters on police collaboration with the United Nations, Australian and Canadian efforts abroad, CIVPOL (civilian police peace operations), and programs in Papua New Guinea and Cambodia. The book shows how expanding the role of the police beyond the limits of fighting crime can help contribute to safer, more stable communities.

Sie sind Stoff für unzählige Verfilmungen: die Taten von Serienmördern. Auch wenn oder gerade weil ihre Handlungen immer unbegreiflich bleiben werden, üben sie eine große Faszination auf uns "normale" Menschen aus. Die erste Frage muss wohl lauten: Gibt es überhaupt so viele Serienmörder, dass damit eine ganze Enzyklopädie gefüllt werden kann? Die Antwort: Es gibt sie, wie die sechste ergänzte und überarbeitete Auflage der "Großen Enzyklopädie der Serienmörder" beweist. Und es sind nicht die Unbekanntesten, die in dieser Sammlung vermerkt sind: Jack the Ripper beispielsweise, dessen Treiben im nebeligen London schon so manche Verfilmung erlebt hat. Fritz Haarmann, dem Schauspieler Götz George in der Verfilmung seines Lebens sein kahlgeschorenes Haupt lieh. Oder Edward Gein, um ein Beispiel aus den USA zu nennen, der zum real existierenden und mordenden Vorbild für Alfred Hitchcocks wohl besten Film - "Psycho" - wurde. Jack Unterweger ist ebenso vertreten, wie der "Vampir von Düsseldorf" oder der "Menschenfresser von Duisburg". Die Geschichte der Serienmörder beginnt bereits bei Jeanne d'Arc - einer ihrer Kampfgefährten hatte hunderte Knaben auf dem Gewissen. Leider hat die Geschichte bis heute kein Ende. Zu den aktuellsten Beispielen gehören der BTK-Mörder ("Bind, Torture, Kill") und der Franzose Fourniret, der gemeinsam mit seiner Frau junge Mädchen misshandelte und tötete. Was treibt sie also an? Wir werden es nie verstehen. Aber wir können dank dieser Enzyklopädie ihre Lebensgeschichte nachlesen und gleichzeitig in die wahre Welt der Kriminalfälle eintauchen - eine Welt, die grausamer ist, als es jede erfundene Geschichte je sein kann.
Violence is a complex subject that is rooted in a multitude of disciplines, including not only criminology but also psychology, sociology, biology, and other social science disciplines. It is only through understanding violence as a concept that we can hope to respond to it appropriately and to prevent it. The Study of Violent Crime: Its Correlates and Concerns is a comprehensive text that provides a current analysis of violence and violent crime in the United States. Topics discussed include: The history of violence in Europe and America Whether violent behavior can be predicted Possible correlates of violence, including values, poverty, low education, abuse and neglect, alcohol abuse, and shame Sociological theories surrounding crime causation, including social control, conflict and strain, and anomie Psychological approaches to understanding violence from Freud, Bentham, Skinner, and others Biological theories and the influence of positivism and determinism The role of early exposure to violence on future behavior and programs to counteract these effects Gang activity and hate crimes The history of punishment and its effectiveness Victimology and victimization Organized in logical fashion, each chapter builds on previous ones and makes use of concrete examples to clarify concepts. Action boxes help readers focus on salient points and review questions appear at the end of each chapter, enabling readers to test their assimilation of the material.
Civil-Military Cooperation (CIMIC) is the relationship between militaries and humanitarians. Largely conducted in post-conflict environments, CIMIC has become a key characteristic of military operations in the twenty-first century. However, the field is mostly understood through stereotype rather than clear, comprehensive analysis. The range and scope of activities which fall under the wider rubric of CIMIC is huge, as are the number of differing approaches, across situations and national armed forces. This book demonstrates the wide variety of national approaches to CIMIC activities, introducing some theoretical and ethical considerations into a field that has largely been bereft of this type of debate. Containing several case studies of recent CIMIC (in the Balkans, Afghanistan, and Iraq) along with theoretical analyses, it will assist scholars, practitioners, and decision-makers become more aware of the 'state of the art' in this field. Civil-Military Cooperation in Post-Conflict Operations will be of much interest to all students of military studies, humanitarian operations, peace operations and security studies in general.
