Behavioral science has revealed a wealth of information concerning violence assessment in a wide variety of situations, but the challenge confronted by those dealing with potentially hostile populations is the effective application of this knowledge. Now in its second edition, Violence Assessment and Intervention: The Practitioner’s Handbook, Second Edition supplies concrete, practical approaches to applying behavioral science to threats of violence in communities, businesses, and schools, and describes how to effectively intervene to preserve the safety of victims. Grounded in the authors’ experience in successfully assessing and managing thousands of cases in a variety of contexts and environments, this practical handbook provides a precise methodology for analyzing potential threat situations and taking action before tragedy occurs. The book begins by demonstrating the violence risk assessment process from the point of the initial call and proceeds through the steps that quantify the situation and determine the appropriate response. The next section covers information gathering, victimology, and formulas and tools for risk assessment. Finally, the book explores organizational influences, ethics, security and consultation issues, and laws related to violence assessment. New to the Second Edition: Previous chapters updated New case histories Advice on how to obtain additional behavioral information in victim and witness interviews An examination of ethical problems caused by unqualified assessors A chapter on post-secondary education which addresses the problem of school shootings An in-depth look at which assessment tools work and which are ineffective The continued occurrence of terrorist attacks and mass murders in workplaces and schools makes the revision for this book a timely one. The authors’ presentation of practical, effective methods of violence risk assessment and intervention takes a step forward in protecting people at risk from these catastrophic and concerted acts of violence.

Readings in Law and Popular Culture is the first book to bring together high quality research, with an emphasis on context, from key researchers working at the cutting-edge of both law and cultural disciplines. Fascinating and varied, the volume crosses many boundaries, dealing with areas as diverse as football-based computer games, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, digital sampling in the music industry, the films of Sidney Lumet, football hooliganism, and Enid Blyton. These topics are linked together through the key thread of the role of, or the absence of, law - therefore providing a snapshot of significant work in the burgeoning field of law and popular culture. Including important theoretical and truly innovative, relevant material, this contemporary text will enliven and inform a legal audience, and will also appeal to a much broader readership of people interested in this highly topical area.
Little did anyone know, back in 1958 when the first Carry On film, Carry on Sergeant, was produced by Peter Rogers and directed by Gerald Thomas, that 50 years and 31 films later Carry On would have become such a well-loved British comedy institution, and one that continues to have people rolling in the aisles. And what better way to celebrate Carry On’s 50th anniversary in 2008 than to dazzle Carry On fans with this incredibly well-researched treasure trove of information, including technical data about each film, interesting facts about every member of the Carry On team and every conceivable statistic that you could ever imagine. With forewords by Carry On cameraman Alan Hume and actor Jack Douglas, and peppered with photographs and actors’ anecdotes and memories, this book is an absolute must for every Carry On aficionado.
