How much do we actually know about liaison officers, their work, their dilemma's, and the politics surrounding their deployment? How do policies and budget developments affect liaison officers schemes? What can be said about their preparation and professionalization? This book presents rich and illustrative empirical material on the use of liaison offices in police cooperation. The authors, both eminent academics and seasoned practitioners (and in some cases from a dual academic-practitioner background), present their findings from a wide range of geographical and functional viewpoints. Students and law enforcement professionals are made familiar with the blue web of policing across the world. This book offers them a considerable variety of perspectives, ranging from academic to professional, from institutional to informal, and from sociological to psychological.

The Nazi regime in Germany was terrible enough without even accounting for the policy of collaboration. So what extra does collaboration say about Hitler and his plans for Europe? Peter Davies explores the mindset and political attitudes of Hitler and also many other controversial pro-Nazi leaders in Western Europe, Scandanavia, Central and Eastern Europe, and also beyond. Delving into four different "types" of collaboration: political, financial, the Holocaust, and collaboration at a social level, he asks some difficult questions. The story of collaboration is brought up to date, assessing both the legacy and its contemporary parallels.

Chelsea and Anthony were elated when they adopted Sugar and Spice, a male and a female retriever. The shelter attendant assured them that the female had been spayed, but the male needed to get neutered. When Sugar went for a checkup, they discovered otherwise; Sugar was pregnant. So, when Sugar actually gave birth, finding the perfect owner for each puppy was arduous, but on that warm summer afternoon, the seemingly perfect couple fit the bill. With tears in her eyes, Chelsea handed them the last pup, the one she loved as if it were her own daughter. Two years later, she received a phone call from a veterinarian that left Chelsea with a choice to make. One that would make things right, as they should've been from the beginning. One that would change their lives forever. A moving love story of sorts that demonstrates the unbreakable bond and sustainable love between dogs and humans. A fictional novella.

The first collection to emphasize the complex interaction between gender and postcoloniality. Most people in the world, from Africa to Asia and beyond, live in the aftermath of colonialism. Their day-to-day lives are defined by their past history as colonized peoples, often in ways that are subtle or hard to define. In Dangerous Liaisons, eminent contributors address the issues raised by the postcolonial condition, considering nationhood, history, gender, and identity from an inter-disciplinary perspective. Among the questions they address are: What are the boundaries of race and ethnicity in a diasporic world? How have women been so effectively excluded from national power? What have been the historical aftermaths of different forms of colonialism? What are the cultural and political consequences of colonial partitions of the nation-state? Representing an essential intervention, Dangerous Liaisons is a crucial guidebook for those concerned with understanding postcoloniality at the moment when it is becoming more and more widely discussed.

‘I resolved to write a book which would create some stir in the world and continue to do after I had gone from it.’ - Choderlos de Laclos A great sensation at the time of first publication, Les Liaisons Dangereuses reads as much the most 'modern' of eighteenth-century novels. Viewed by some critics as a morality tale and others as a subtle inquiry into libertinism, it brilliantly depicts the foibles of the French aristocracy on the eve of the French Revolution. Renowned for its exploration of lust, revenge and human malice, and still carrying a tremendous power to shock, its adaptations for screen and stage have made its central characters notorious for their sophisticated and ultimately tragic games of seduction and manipulation.

Western Window in the Arab World

Since November 8, 1942, when American troops in Operation Torch first landed on the beaches of North Africa, almost a million Americans—military personnel and their dependents—have lived in Morocco. Their impact on the political and social evolution of Morocco has been significant, but historians and political scientists before this book had made little effort to chart its course or to assess its outcome. The naval base at Port Lyautey in Morocco was the first foreign base captured by American troops in World War II, and United States objectives in Morocco continued to be primarily military. In 1942, as the price for French support against the Axis, the United States pledged its support for the restoration of the prewar French colonial empire. In 1950, faced with the threat of Soviet aggression, the United States negotiated an agreement with France and built four United States Air Force bases in Morocco without consultation with or notification of the Moroccan government. In spite of its sterile diplomatic policy and both Communist and Moroccan nationalist demands for evacuation of United States military bases, the United States retained essential military facilities in Morocco for many years. Leon Blair concludes that American military personnel and their dependents favorably conditioned Moroccan public opinion. By their egalitarianism, humanitarianism, and evident interest, they reinforced the idealistic image of the United States that was held by the majority of Moroccans. These Americans were neither individually nor collectively conscious agents in a campaign to modify Moroccan public opinion; they were simply a Western window in the Arab world, through which two civilizations might view one another. In the long run, they made a greater contribution in peace than in war.

A Social History of Venereal Disease in Twentieth-century Scotland

Author: Roger Davidson

Publisher: Rodopi

Category: Medical

This book explores the role of Venereal Disease in shaping perceptions of sexuality in twentieth-century Scotland, and in defining the response of the Modern State to patterns of sexual behaviour. It examines how civic, medical and political authorities reacted to the 'Hideous Scourge' in times of peace and war and how far policy was informed by anxieties surrounding social change and public morality as much as by the incidence of disease and developments in medical knowledge. It focuses in particular on the moral assumptions underpinning epidemiological debate, and the various dimensions of stigmatisation and control within VD discourse, including gender, generation and class. This study also highlights the protracted campaign in Scotland for legal controls over those suffering from VD, and the enduring problem, resurrected by the threat of HIV and AIDS, of balancing the demands of public health against those of civil liberties in the regulation of 'dangerous sexualities'.

An Introvert in an Extrovert World: Essays on the Quiet Ones is a multi-disciplinary anthology about introversion in the world of extroversion. Susan Cain’s book, Quiet, recently addressed the complexities of an issue that was initially raised by Carl Jung, and this anthology expands the analysis of the challenges faced by those who are considered to be introverts – those who prefer reading to partying, listening to speaking – living in a world of people who cannot understand their quieter ways. Introverts are innovative and make significant contributions, but dislike self-promotion. They derive their energy from quiet rejuvenation, as opposed to acquiring renewed energy from being surrounded by, and interacting with, multitudes of people. That they are typically labeled “quiet” often suggests negative connotations. However, from Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer, the contributions of the “quiet ones” have made an immeasurable and invaluable impact on our society. An Introvert in an Extrovert World contains analyses of popular culture, literature, television, film, and social media, as well as poignant personal narrative examples of the lives of these two contrasting personality types. Examples of the pain, conflict, repression, and even humor related to introversion in everyday life are manifested in this collection of articles that span the spectrum of human nature. The volume looks at the unlikely professions that the populace would attribute to the introvert: from teacher/professor and actor to politician and even gladiator. The reader is given an understanding of different characters in literary works and their connection to introversion, visits the spectrum of social media and the pluses and minuses therein, and is provided with examples of how to promote one’s writing for publication whilst being an introvert. Within the pages of this book, there are many and varied topics and intuitive insights traversing several situations that relate to the “quiet” world of introversion.
