White Unwed Mother The Adoption Mandate in Postwar Canada


White Unwed Mother : The Adoption Mandate in Postwar Canada By Valerie Andrews
2018 | 252 Pages | ISBN: 1772581720 | EPUB | 13 MB
In postwar Canada, having a child out-of-wedlock invariably meant being subject to the adoption mandate. Andrews describes the mandate as a process of interrelated institutional power systems which, together with socio-cultural norms, ideals of gender heteronormativity, and emerging sociological and psychoanalytic theories, created historically unique conditions in the post WWII decades wherein the white unmarried mother was systematically separated from her baby by means of adoption. This volume uncovers and substantiates evidence of the mandate, ultimately finding that at least 350,000 unmarried mothers in Canada were impacted.

Crimes of the Powerful White-Collar Crime and Beyond


Crimes of the Powerful: White-Collar Crime and Beyond By Dawn Rothe, David Kauzlarich
2022 | 260 Pages | ISBN: 0367644584 | PDF | 18 MB
As politicians and the media perpetuate the stereotype of the common criminal, crimes committed by the powerful remain for the most part invisible or are reframed as a bad decision or a rare mistake. This is a topic that remains marginalized within the field of criminology and criminal justice, yet crimes of the powerful cause more harm, perpetuate more inequalities, and result in more victimization than street crimes. Crimes of the Powerful: White-Collar Crime and Beyond is the first textbook to bring together and show the symbiotic relationships between the related fields of state crime, white- collar crime, corporate crime, financial crime and organized crime, and environmental crime. Dawn L. Rothe and David Kauzlarich introduce the many types of crimes, their theoretical relevance, and issues surrounding regulations and social controls for crimes of the powerful. Themes covered include: – media, culture, and the Hollywoodization of crimes of the powerful; – theoretical understanding and the study of the crimes of the powerful; – typology of crimes of the powerful with examples and case studies; – victims of the crimes of the powerful; – the regulation and resistance of elite crime. Fully updated and revised, the new edition includes new chapters on occupational crime, crimes against the environment, and further coverage of representations of resistance to crimes of the powerful in popular culture. An ideal introductory text for both undergraduate and postgraduate students taking modules on the crimes of the powerful, white- collar crime, state crime, and green criminology, this text includes chapter summaries, activities and discussion questions, and lists of additional resources including films, websites, regulatory agencies, and additional readings.

White Guys Studies in Postmodern Domination and Difference


White Guys: Studies in Postmodern Domination and Difference By Fred Pfeil
1995 | 290 Pages | ISBN: 1859849377 | PDF | 18 MB
What do men-white straight men in particular-want? In a series of witty and provocative investigations of American popular culture, Fred Pfeil exposes the contradictions in the construction of white heterosexual masculinity over the last fifteen years. White Guys probes such topics as the rock’n’roll bodies of Bruce Springsteen, Axl Rose, and the late Kurt Cobain; the "male rampage" films Die Hard and Lethal Weapon and the films of "sensitive transformation" that followed in their wake; and the curious yet symptomatic activities of the men’s movement whose "rituals" Pfeil has investigated firsthand.
