Deradicalisation and Terrorist Rehabilitation by Rohan Gunaratna,Sabariah Hussin Book Resume:

The threat of terrorism, if not adequately managed, is likely to increase exponentially. As terrorist groups’ influence and networks spread globally, a concerted effort in counterterrorism strategy is critical to mitigating the threat they present. Governments facing the threat of terrorism are typically strengthening their law enforcement, military and intelligence capabilities, but more complex initiatives such as deradicalisation and terrorist rehabilitation are more time-consuming and less attention-grabbing and so tend to be neglected. It is all too easy to 'do' rehabilitation ineffectively or to simply ignore it altogether. This is unfortunate, as an effective rehabilitation strategy can yield dividends over the longer term. Every committed terrorist is a potential recruiter, whether in prison or at liberty, for more terrorists. Even in death, they can potentially be presented as martyrs. Conversely, successfully rehabilitated terrorists can be valuable assets in the public relations theatre of battle. There is no single, simple solution to the challenges of deradicalisation and rehabilitation, but this book places examples of best practice within a robust, but flexible, conceptual framework. It gives guidelines for establishing and implementing a successful deradicalisation or rehabilitation programme, derived from a series of empirical case studies of successful projects around the world. It sets out both the necessary and desirable facets of such a programme, identifying which areas to prioritise and where budgets can be best spent if resources are tight. The authors provide detailed case studies of each step to illustrate an approach that has worked and how best to replicate this success.

Legal Issues in the Rehabilitation of Abandoned Housing Projects (UUM Press) by Nuarrual Hilal Md. Dahlan Book Resume:

Abandoned housing project is one of the housing problems in Peninsular Malaysia. Even though there are laws and policies provided by the Malaysian Government to control the housing industry, the abandoned housing project is still an unsettled issue for the Malaysian Government to tackle. The real victims are the purchasers themselves. There is virtually no standard common way to face the problems of abandoned housing projects. Likewise, there is no similar specific method to deal with the rehabilitation of abandoned housing projects. This is due to the fact that in every abandoned housing project and its rehabilitation, the problem and issues faced by the stakeholders vary. Thus different methods are used to deal with the problems, especially to rehabilitate the projects. If the project is not variable for rehabilitation, the project will be stalled forever without any prospects for rehabilitation, to the detriment of the purchasers. This book discusses the law and practice in rehabilitating abandoned housing project in Peninsular Malaysia. Certain suggestions are also provided in this modest book for facing the problems of abandoned housing projects and their rehabilitation in Peninsular Malaysia and for the betterment of the housing industry in Peninsular Malaysia.

Bridge Rehabilitation by Radomski Wojciech Book Resume:

In the last two decades, the rapid deterioration of bridge structures has become a serious technical and economical problem in many countries, including highly developed ones. Therefore, bridge rehabilitation has also become a very essential factor (sometimes even a decisive one) in contemporary bridge engineering. The book covers in synthetic form nearly all the most important problems concerning bridge rehabilitation, such as bridge superstructure and substructure, the typical damage observed in bridges as well as the assessment and evaluation techniques of their technical condition. The book is intended mainly for postgraduate university students. Therefore, all the problems are mostly presented in their physical, chemical and technical as well as economical aspects. The relevant requirements are treated as objective ones, i.e. irrespective of the rules, standards, regulations or guidelines particular to any country. This approach to the subject gives the book a more general character and therefore makes it a useful text for most civil engineering courses./a

Reaffirming Rehabilitation by Francis T. Cullen,Karen E. Gilbert Book Resume:

Reaffirming Rehabilitation , 2nd Edition, brings fresh insights to one of the core works of criminal justice literature. This groundbreaking work analyzes the rehabilitative ideal within the American correctional system and discusses its relationship to and conflict with political ideologies. Many researchers and policymakers rejected the value of rehabilitation after Robert Martinson’s proclamation that "nothing works." Cullen and Gilbert’s book helped stem the tide of negativism that engulfed the U.S. correctional system in the years that followed the popularization of the "nothing works" doctrine. Now Cullen traces the social impact on U.S. corrections policy. This new edition is appropriate as a textbook in corrections courses and as recommended reading in related courses. It also serves as a resource for researchers and policymakers working in the field of corrections.

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation by Anne-Lise Christensen,Barbara Uzzell Book Resume:

In early 1985 a grant from the Egmont Foundation made the establishment of the Center for Rehabilitation of Brain Damage in copenhagen possible. This meant the realization of a plan with which Anne-Lise Christensen had been occupied for years. Through her work in psychiatric and neurosurgical wards she had acquired a deep insight in the problems of the brain damage, and through visits to the leading centers within the field of brain damage rehabilitation she had become inti mately acquainted with the most modern trends in research and practice which was insufficiently devel oped in Denmark. When finally the possibility of establishing the center came closer, it was obvious that Anne-Lise Christensen would be the right person to organize this institution and to become its leader. Two years later, when the building-up of the Center had been finished and the work was running smoothly, it was felt natural to mark this accomplish ment by the arrangement of an international conference on rehabilitation of brain damage. On this occasion, a number of leading specialists gave lectures on many different aspects of the topic. This provided great incentives for those interested in the field in Den mark. The present volume, containing the lectures from the conference, can also be regarded as a tribute to Anne-Lise Christensen and her colleagues, in recogni tion of their accomplishments within the field of neuropsychology and rehabilitation of the brain dam aged.

Deterioration and Optimal Rehabilitation Modelling for Urban Water Distribution Systems by Yi Zhou Book Resume:

Pipe failures in water distribution systems can have a serious impact and hence it’s important to maintain the condition and integrity of the distribution system. This book presents a whole-life cost optimisation model for the rehabilitation of water distribution systems. It combines a pipe breakage number prediction model with a pipe criticality assessment model, which enables the creation of a well-constructed and more tightly constrained optimisation model. The pipe breakage number prediction model combines information on the physical characteristics of the pipes with historical information on breakage and failure rates. A weighted multiple nonlinear regression analysis is applied to describe the condition of different pipe groups. The criticality assessment model combines a pipe’s condition with its hydraulic significance through a modified TOPSIS. This model enables the optimisation to focus its efforts on those important pipes. The whole life cost optimal rehabilitation model is a multiple-objective and multiple-stage model, which provides a suite of rehabilitation decisions that minimise the whole life cost while maximising its long-term performance. The optimisation model is solved using a modified NSGA-II. The utility of the developed models is that it allows decision makers to prioritize their rehabilitation strategy in a proactive and cost-effective manner.

Economic Impact of Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Programs in Virginia by Book Resume:

Virginia has been a national leader in historic preservation for many years. One of the many areas where this is reflected is in the use of historic tax credits in the Commonwealth. As of FY 2012, the most recent year for which such data are available, Virginia ranks third in the nation in total dollar volume of estimated qualified rehabilitation expenditures at project completion, behind only Massachusetts and Missouri. Preservation Virginia retained the VCU Center for Urban and Regional Development to conduct an analysis of the economic impacts of historic rehabilitation, financed in part through the Virginia Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program and the Federal Historic Tax Credit Program, from 1997 to 2013. This analysis builds upon reports and updates completed by VCU for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources in 2007, 2010 and 2012. Like those earlier reports, this study documents the significant economic returns that Virginia realizes from preserving and re-using historic properties. Similarly, a study published in 2012 by Virginia’s Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission concluded that unlike some tax preference programs that do not achieve their stated goals, Virginia’s Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program effectively achieves the goal of promoting the rehabilitation of historic structures. Although this report is able to document only the easily quantifiable returns of economic activity and tax revenues, historic preservation brings many additional benefits to society. These include aesthetic and psychological benefits that help citizens understand their heritage and which improve the attractiveness of places to residents, businesses and tourists. Ultimately, these impacts strengthen the economy and augment the tax base as well. Tax credit usage in Virginia has occurred more often in urban areas, such as Richmond, Hampton Roads, Northern Virginia and Roanoke, than in rural areas. This is understandable, since urban areas have more buildings, as well as a larger percentage of the stock of historic buildings. However, tax credit-financed projects have been completed in most communities throughout the Commonwealth, reflecting both the utility and perhaps the future expansion potential of this program. (See Map ES 1, below.) From 2000 (when the Virginia Historic Tax Credit was raised to 25% of qualified rehabilitation expenditures) through 2011 (the most recent year for which all Virginia tax credit projects have been completed and certified), an average of 174 projects have been certified each year. The number of rehabilitation projects increased steadily from 1997 to 2005, when it reached its peak of 235 projects certified per year. The Great Recession of 2008-09, which had a very significant effect on the construction industry overall, caused a moderate decline in historic rehabilitation activity.

Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting II by Mark G. Alexander,Hans-Dieter Beushausen,Frank Dehn,Pilate Moyo Book Resume:

The Second International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2005) was held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 24-26 November 2008. The Conference followed the very successful First International Conference, also in Cape Town in 2005, and continued as a collaborative venture by researchers from the South African Research Programme in Concrete Materials (based at the Universities of Cape Town and The Witwatersrand) and The Construction Materials Sections at Leipzig University and MFPA Leipzig in Germany. The background, in industry and the state of national infrastructures, continues to be highly challenging and demanding. The facts remain that much of our concrete infrastructure deteriorates at unacceptable rates, that we need appropriate tools and techniques to undertake the vast task of sound repair, maintenance and rehabilitation of such infrastructure, and that all this must be undertaken with due cognisance of the limited budgets available for such work. New ways need to be found to extend the useful life of concrete structures cost-effectively. Confidence in concrete as a viable construction material into the 21st century needs to be retained and sustained, particularly considering the environmental challenges that the industry and society now face. The conference proceedings contain papers, presented at the conference, and classified into a total of 12 sub themes which can be grouped under the three main themes of (i) Concrete durability aspects, (ii) Condition assessment of concrete structures, and (iii) Concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting. The major interests in terms of submissions exists in the fields of innovative materials for durable concrete construction, integrated service life modelling of reinforced concrete structures, NDE/NDT and measurement techniques, repair methods and materials, and structural strengthening and retrofitting techniques. The large number of high-quality papers presented and the wide range of relevant topics covered confirm that these proceedings will be a valued reference for many working in the important fields of concrete durability and repair, and that they will form a suitable base for discussion and provide suggestions for future development and research. Set of book of abstracts (476 pp) and a searchable full paper CD-ROM (1396 pp).

Development-induced Displacement, Rehabilitation and Resettlement in India by Sakarama Somayaji,Smrithi Talwar Book Resume:

Compulsory land acquisition and involuntary displacement of communities for a larger public purpose captures the tension of development in the modern state, with the need to balance the interests of the majority while protecting the rights of the minority. In India, informal estimates of involuntary resettlement are estimated to be around 50 million people over the last five decades, and three-fourths of those displaced still face an uncertain future. Growing public concern over the long-term consequences of this has led to greater scrutiny of the rehabilitation and resettlement process, particularly for large development projects. This book examines a number of new policy formulations put in place at both the central and state levels, looking at land acquisition procedures and norms for rehabilitation and resettlement of communities. The book combines a theoretical analysis of the proposed regulatory framework with detailed case studies that examine the application of these norms in specific geographic contexts across the country. It brings together contributory analysis by some of the country’s most engaged administrators, academics, and activists in the field, and is a useful contribution to Development Studies.

Rehabilitation and Resettlement in Tehri Hydro Power Project by A Amarender Reddy Book Resume:

This book is aimed at exploring the socioeconomic assessment of the project-affected people of the Tehri hydro project. The Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI), Hyderabad, first conducted a socioeconomic study for the THDC in 1993, which aimed at the families to be rehabilitated and those already rehabilitated. The first socioeconomic study carried out a benchmark survey to evaluate the project and its impact and to build a socioeconomic profile of the households to understand the conditions before and after the R and R. The survey also documented the perceptions, views, and suggestions of the rehabilitated households. The present book is a follow up to the previous study, and it compares with the results of the first survey to understand any changes. The main aim of the book is to understand the socioeconomic conditions of the households rehabilitated and resettled up to the year 2008.

Conversion and the Rehabilitation of the Penal System by Andrew Skotnicki Book Resume:

The Cincinnati Penal Congress of 1870 ushered in the era of "progressive" penology: the use of statistical and social scientific methodologies, commitment to psychiatric and therapeutic interventions, and a new innovation--the reformatory--as the locus for the application of these initiatives. The prisoner was now seen as a specimen to be analyzed, treated, and properly socialized into the triumphal current of American social and economic life. The Progressive rehabilitative initiatives succumbed in the 1970s to withering criticism from the proponents of equally futile strategies for addressing "the crime problem": retribution, deterrence, and selective incapacitation. The early Christian community developed a methodology for correcting human error that featured the unprecedented belief that a period of time spent in a given penitential locale, with the aid and encouragement of the community, was sufficient in and of itself to heal the alienation and self-loathing caused by sin and to lead an individual to full reincorporation into the community. The "correctional" practice was based upon the conviction that cooperative sociability--or conversion--is possible, regardless of the specific offense, without any need to inflict suffering, or to use the act of punishment as a warning to potential offenders, or to undertake programmatic interventions into the lives of the incarcerated for the purpose of rehabilitating them. Andrew Skotnicki contends that the modern practice of criminal detention is a protracted exercise in needless violence predicated upon two foundational errors. The first is an inability to see the imprisoned as human beings fully capable of responding to an affirmative accompaniment rather than maltreatment and invasive forms of therapy. The second is a pervasive dualism that constructs a barrier between detainees and those empowered to supervise, rehabilitate, and punish them. In this book, Skotnicki argues that the criminal justice system can only be rehabilitated by eliminating punishment and policies based upon deterrence, rehabilitation, and the incapacitation of the urban poor and returning to the original justification for the practice of confinement: conversion.

Rehabilitation by Tony Ward,Shadd Maruna Book Resume:

Over the last two decades, empirical evidence has increasingly supported the view that it is possible to reduce re-offending rates by rehabilitating offenders rather than simply punishing them. In fact, the pendulum’s swing back from a pure punishment model to a rehabilitation model is arguably one of the most significant events in modern correctional policy. This comprehensive review argues that rehabilitation should focus both on promoting human goods (i.e. providing the offender with the essential ingredients for a 'good' life), as well as reducing/avoiding risk. Offering a succinct summary and critique of the scientific approach to offender rehabilitation, this intriguing volume for students of criminology, sociology and clinical psychology gives a comprehensive evaluation of both the Risk-Need Model and the Good Lives Model. Rehabilitation is a value-laden process involving a delicate balance of the needs and desires of clinicians, clients, the State and the public. Written by two international leading academics in rehabilitation research, this book argues that intervention with offenders is not simply a matter of implementing the best therapeutic technology and leaving political and social debate to politicians and policy makers.

Perio-Esthetics and Implant Prosthodontics in Anterior Rehabilitation by Abhinav Gupta Book Resume:

Esthetics is the prime concern in today's dental care both for the patient and the treatment provider. Esthetic dentistry is just not limited to color matching restorations but soft tissue considerations like position of the lips, color and contour of gingiva around teeth also play a very important role in overall esthetic appearance of face. Providing an esthetic restoration in the anterior region of the mouth has been the basis of peril-implant esthetics. Period esthetics or Periodontal plastic surgeries in its broad term covers various procedures either around natural teeth or dental implant fixtures in the esthetic zone. This may range from crown lengthening procedures, coverage of denuded root surfaces, ridge augmentation, periodontal prosthetic corrections and cosmetic surgical corrections around dental implants. Prosthetics also plays an equal important role in implant esthetics. Various prosthetic parameters like 3 D implant placement, implant abutment interface, provisionalisation during interim period, choice of abutment material, digital dentistry etc. are important factors at the pinnacle of successful outcome. This book is a comprehensive overview of clinical techniques related to Periodontal esthetics and Implant Esthetics.

The Future of Correctional Rehabilitation by Ronen Ziv Book Resume:

In the aftermath of Martinson’s 1974 "nothing works" doctrine, scholars have made a concerted effort to develop an evidence-based corrections theory and practice to show "what works" to change offenders. Perhaps the most important contribution to this effort was made by a group of Canadian psychologists, most notably Donald Andrews, James Bonta, and Paul Gendreau, who developed a treatment paradigm called the Risk-Need-Responsivity (RNR) model, which became the dominant theory of correctional treatment. This approach was more recently challenged by a perspective developed by Tony Ward, Shadd Maruna, and others, called the Good Lives Model (GLM). Based in part on desistance research and positive psychology, this model proposes to rehabilitate offenders by building on the strengths offenders possess. GLM proponents see the RNR model as a deficit model that fixes dynamic risk factors rather than identifying what offenders value most, and using these positive factors to pull them out of crime. Through a detailed examination of both models’ theoretical and correctional frameworks, The Future of Correctional Rehabilitation: Moving Beyond the RNR Model and Good Lives Model Debate probes the extent to which the models offer incompatible or compatible approaches to offender treatment, and suggests how to integrate the RNR and GLM approaches to build a new and hopefully more effective vision for offender treatment. A foreword by renowned criminologist Francis T. Cullen helps put the material into context. This book will be of much interest to scholars and students studying correctional rehabilitation as well as practitioners working with offenders.

Reimagining Rehabilitation by Lol Burke,Steve Collett,Fergus McNeill Book Resume:

This book aims to make the case for and provide some of the resources necessary to reimagine rehabilitation for twenty-first-century criminal justice. Outlining an approach to rehabilitation which takes into account wider democratic processes, political structures and mechanisms of resource allocation, the authors develop a new model of rehabilitation comprising four forms – personal, legal, social and moral. Personal rehabilitation concerns how individuals make their journeys away from offending and towards reintegration and how they can be supported to do so, whilst legal rehabilitation concerns the role of the criminal courts in the process of restricting and then restoring the rights and status of citizens. Moral rehabilitation is concerned with the ethical basis of the interactions between the individual who has offended and the people and organisations charged with providing rehabilitative services. Social rehabilitation explores the crucial contribution civil society can make to rehabilitation, exploring this through the lens of citizenship, community and social capital. Drawing on the conceptual insights offered in the late Stan Cohen’s seminal work – Visions of Social Control – and specifically his insistence that modern social institutions can aspire to doing good and doing justice, the authors argue that these values can underpin a moral pragmatism in designing social interventions that must go beyond achieving simply instrumental ends. Reimaging rehabilitation within the context of social action and social justice, this book is essential reading for students and scholars alike, particularly those engaged with criminal justice policy, probation and offender rehabilitation.

Prisoner Rehabilitation: Success Stories And Failures by Joan Esherick Book Resume:

Russ committed thousands of dollars of damage during a two-hour drunken vandalism spree. He never saw the inside of a jail, yet in the thirty years since his first arrest he remains re-arrest free. He's a rehabilitation success story. Manny stole a car at thirteen years of age, a crime for which he was sentenced to a detention center. That was only the first of what would become dozens of arrests, re-arrests, and convictions in Manny's lifetime. Criminal behavior became his way of life. Russ and Manny represent the best and worst of today's American rehabilitation policies. While a few programs and institutions succeed in helping people with criminal tendencies to turn their lives around, many fail. How are people who commit crimes being successfully rehabilitated? What works? What doesn't? Is there hope for change for someone who finds himself behind bars? The real-life case studies provided in this book offer intriguing answers and observations. They may even raise additional questions. In any case, Prisoner Rehabilitation: Success Stories and Failures provides a balanced perspective of what rehabilitation is and how it can better be accomplished.
