Bad Business: Professional Crime in Modern Britain

By Dick Hobbs

London: Oxford University Press, 1995. New copy still in shrink wrap. 152pp illustrated in b/w. Written by a leading commentator on the culture of crime and criminality, this book is a hard-hitting and disturbing insight into the activities and attitudes of professional Criminals. The work is based upon interviews with generations of criminals whose activities range from violence, intimidation, and protection rackets through to drug dealing and car theft. Professional criminals talk in graphic detail about their violent methods and ruthless attitudes to those who stand in their way. The stories show a picture of a community where criminals have an elevated status, where violence is seen as a part of life, and prison is an occupational hazard--not a deterrent. The author spent three years at street level talking to the people whose stories appear in this book, and he presents us with a picture of a world beyond the usual glamorous, media friendly images of the gangster: a place where it is a struggle to thrive in a dangerous and highly competitive environment.. 1st.

Trumping Religion: The New Christian Right, the Free Speech Clause, and the Courts

By Steven P. Brown

United States of America: University Alabama Press, 2002. Trumping Religion provides a detailed analysis of the five major public-interest law firms that have litigated religion cases in the federal courts between 1980 and 2000. Allied with several highly vocal, evangelical ministries, such as those of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robinson, these legal organizations argue that religious expression is a form of protected speech and thereby gain a greater latitude of interpretation in the courts. The long-term agenda of the New Christian Right as illuminated by this study is to shape church-state jurisprudence in a way that permits free course for the Christian gospel. Steven P. Brown presents his research and conclusions from a balanced viewpoint. In filling a distinct void in the literature, this book will be of considerable interest to political scientists, legal scholars, law schools and seminaries, and anyone concerned with the intersection of religion and judicial politics.. 1st. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Political Science.
