    Pro dignitate legis et maiestate iustitiae : księga jubileuszowa z okazji 70. rocznicy urodzin Profesora Witolda Kuleszy

    2020
    Wydanie I.
    Summary: "W maju 2020 roku Profesor Witold Kulesza obchodził 70. rocznicę urodzin. Z tej okazji postanowiliśmy skierować zaproszenie do wybitnych przedstawicieli najważniejszych ośrodków naukowych w Polsce i za granicą, by wspólnie uhonorować Jubilata. Efektem naszej współpracy jest prezentowana księga jubileuszowa, zawierająca pięćdziesiąt artykułów o szerokiej tematyce. Zostały one pogrupowane w obrębie czterech rozdziałów - O sprawiedliwości, O prawie karnym w ogólności, O prawie karnym w szczególności, O kryminologii i polityce kryminalnej - by nawiązać do najistotniejszych wątków dorobku naukowego Jubilata. Wśród nich znajdują się prace z pogranicza prawa karnego oraz filozofii państwa i prawa, a także dotyczące poszczególnych typów przestępstw. Autorzy artykułów zarówno sięgają wstecz, jak i odnoszą się do współcześnie wprowadzonych rozwiązań z zakresu prawa penalnego. Pro dignitate legis et maiestate iustitiae, żywiąc głęboki szacunek wysokie uznanie dla Profesora Witolda Kuleszy, składamy tę księgę Jubilatowi w hołdzie i darze."

  3. Those who know don't say : the Nation of Islam, the black freedom movement, and the carceral state

    • Ebog

    Those who know don't say : the Nation of Islam, the black freedom movement, and the carceral state

    2020
    Summary: "Challenging incarceration and policing was central to the postwar Black Freedom Movement. In this ... political and intellectual history of the Nation of Islam, Garrett Felber centers the Nation in the Civil Rights Era and the making of the modern carceral state. The book examines efforts to build broad-based grassroots coalitions among liberals, radicals, and nationalists to oppose the carceral state and struggle for local Black self-determination. It captures the ambiguous place of the Nation of Islam specifically, and Black nationalist organizing more broadly, during an era which has come to be defined by nonviolent resistance, desegregation campaigns, and racial liberalism"

  4. The umbrella movement : civil resistance and contentious space in Hong Kong

    • Ebog

    The umbrella movement : civil resistance and contentious space in Hong Kong

    2020
    Revised edition
    Review: This volume examines the most spectacular struggle for democracy in post-handover Hong Kong. Bringing together scholars with different disciplinary focuses and comparative perspectives from mainland China, Taiwan and Macau, one common thread that stitches the chapters is the use of first-hand data collected through onsite fieldwork. This study unearths how trajectories can create favourable conditions for the spontaneous civil resistance despite the absence of political opportunities and surveys the dynamics through which the protestors, the regime and the wider public responses differently to the prolonged contentious space. The Umbrella Movement: Civil Resistance and Contentious Space in Hong Kong offers an informed analysis of the political future of Hong Kong and its relations with the authoritarian sovereignty as well as sheds light on the methodological challenges and promises in studying modern-day protests. This new edition includes a preface on Hong Kong’s ‘summer of dissent’ in 2019, arguing that the movement’s dynamics and resilience cannot be detached from the learning curve of the protesters and the hidden networks developed after the Umbrella Movement

  5. Ending gender-based violence : justice and community in South Africa

    • Ebog

    Ending gender-based violence : justice and community in South Africa

    2020
    Summary: "Since the 1994 democratic elections, South Africa has been celebrated internationally for the remarkable advances of women in political office. The country continues to be near the top of global rankings for the number of women in parliament, and women are increasingly serving in local government, provincial parliaments, and educational institutions, which has inspired sweeping and progressive legislation dealing with women's advancement. Yet, despite these gains, South Africa continues to fall short, as the country is plagued by remarkably high levels of sexual assault, rape, and intimate-partner violence. This gendered violence is acted out time and again in public forums, like the trials of Jacob Zuma, the then-deputy president of the ruling party, who was accused of rape, and later Oscar Pistorius, the Paralympic track star who shot and killed his girlfriend. Hannah Britton argues that the discrepancy between women in political power and gendered violence illuminates the limitations of carceral approaches to feminism, which attempts to solve social problems like gender-based violence by arresting, prosecuting, and punishing perpetrators. Based on fieldwork conducted over twenty years in nine South African communities, Britton has identified accelerants of gender-based violence, traced how gender-based violence is part of larger social inequalities, and delineated what policies are working and what are failing. The book analyzes how street-level bureaucrats, community activists, feminist advocates, traditional leaders, and religious leaders are working to build networks to address the gender-based violence in their communities. She finds several key characteristics that enable communities to engage with anti-gender violence politics: police, as leaders and partners; people, as individual leaders who will break with patriarchal norms; points of contact, which provide victim services; and place, or the proximity to these services. These characteristics illustrate that the ultimate success or failure of the movement to end gender-based violence starts with communities"

  6. Punished for aging : vulnerability, rights, and access to justice in Canadian penitentiaries

    • Ebog

    Punished for aging : vulnerability, rights, and access to justice in Canadian penitentiaries

    2019
    Summary: "Built around the experiences of older prisoners, Punished for Aging looks at the challenges individuals face in Canadian penitentiaries and their struggles for justice. Through firsthand accounts and quantitative data drawn from extensive interviews, this book brings forward the experiences of federally incarcerated people living their "golden years" behind bars. These experiences show the limited ability of the system to respond to heightened needs, while also raising questions about how international and national laws and policies are applied, and why they fail to ensure the safety and well-being of incarcerated individuals. In so doing, Adelina Iftene explores the shortcomings of institutional processes, prison-monitoring mechanisms, and legal remedies available in courts and tribunals, which leave prisoners vulnerable to rights abuses. Some of the problems addressed in this book are not new; however, the demographic shift and the increase in people dying in prisons after long, inadequately addressed illnesses, with few release options, adds a renewed sense of urgency to reform. Working from the interview data, contextualized by participants' lived experiences, and building on previous work, Iftene seeks solutions for such reform, which would constitute a significant step forward not only in protecting older prisoners, but in consolidating the status of incarcerated individuals as holders of substantive rights."

  7. Women before the court : law and patriarchy in the Anglo-American world, 1600-1800

    • Ebog

    Women before the court : law and patriarchy in the Anglo-American world, 1600-1800

    2019
    This book offers an innovative, comparative approach to the study of women's legal rights during a formative period of Anglo-American history. It traces how colonists transplanted English legal institutions to America, examines the remarkable depth of women's legal knowledge and shows how the law increasingly undermined patriarchal relationships between parents and children, masters and servants, husbands and wives. The book will be of interest to scholars of Britain and colonial America, and to laypeople interested in how women in the past navigated and negotiated the structures of authority that governed them. It is packed with fascinating stories that women related to the courts in cases ranging from murder and abuse to debt and estate litigation. Ultimately, it makes a remarkable contribution to our understandings of law, power and gender in the early modern world

  8. Men on trial : performing emotion, embodiment and identity in Ireland, 1800-45

    • Ebog

    Men on trial : performing emotion, embodiment and identity in Ireland, 1800-45

    2019
    Men on trial explores how the Irish perform 'the self' within the early nineteenth-century courtroom and its implications for law, society and nation. Drawing on new methodologies from the history of emotion, as well as theories of performativity and performative space, it emphasises that manliness was not simply a cultural ideal, but something practised, felt and embodied. Men on trial explores how gender could be a creative dynamic in productions of power. Targeted at scholars in Irish history, law and gender studies, this book argues that justice was not simply determined through weighing evidence, but through weighing men, their bodies, behaviours, and emotions. Moreover, in a context where the processes of justice were publicised in the press for the nation and the world, manliness and its role in the creation of justice became implicated in the making of national identity

  9. The umbrella movement : civil resistance and contentious space in Hong Kong

    • Ebog

    The umbrella movement : civil resistance and contentious space in Hong Kong

    2019
    For 79 days, the Umbrella Movement staged Hong Kong's most spectacular struggle for democracy. Sparked by disgruntlement over Beijing's denial of universal suffrage elections, the protests first began with class boycott along the largely-scripted Occupy Central, but later morphed into a spontaneous, resilient street occupation, transforming roads and pavements into protest sites and tent villages. Although the movement failed to bring any tangible political changes, it has transformed Hong Kong politics in many ways. Not only has it catalyzed the emergence of new movement agency, repertoires and claims, it has also defined a new era for Hong Kong, its relations with China and its identity in the world. This emerging political landscape merits thorough examination. This book is a collaborative attempt to examine this unprecedented and watershed event. It brings together 13 essays written by scholars with different disciplinary and research focuses. The chapters probe the political origins of the movement; identify new participants, protest forms and action repertoires; analyze protesters' strategies and regime responses; and also bring in comparative perspectives from mainland China, Taiwan and Macau. One common thread that stitches the chapters together is the use of first-hand data collected through on-site fieldwork across the protest sites

  10. Justice and mercy : moral theology and the exercise of law in twelfth-century England

    • Ebog

    Justice and mercy : moral theology and the exercise of law in twelfth-century England

    2019
    This book examines one of the most fundamental issues in twelfth-century English politics: justice. It demonstrates that during the foundational period for the common law, the question of judgement and judicial ethics was a topic of heated debate - a common problem with multiple different answers. How to be a judge, and how to judge well, was a concern shared by humble and high, keeping both kings and parish priests awake at night. Using theological texts, sermons, legal treatises and letter collections, the book explores how moralists attempted to provide guidance for uncertain judges. It argues that mercy was always the most difficult challenge for a judge, fitting uncomfortably within the law and of disputed value. Shining a new light on English legal history, Justice and mercy reveals the moral dilemmas created by the establishment of the common law
