The Police Identity Crisis by Book Resume:

This book provides a comprehensive examination of the police role from within a broader philosophical context. Contending that the police are in the midst of an identity crisis that exacerbates unjustified law enforcement tactics, Luke William Hunt examines various major conceptions of the police—those seeing them as heroes, warriors, and guardians. The book looks at the police role considering the overarching societal goal of justice and seeks to present a synthetic theory that draws upon history, law, society, psychology, and philosophy. Each major conception of the police role is examined in light of how it affects the pursuit of justice, and how it may be contrary to seeking justice holistically and collectively. The book sets forth a conception of the police role that is consistent with the basic values of a constitutional democracy in the liberal tradition. Hunt’s intent is that clarifying the police role will likewise elucidate any constraints upon policing strategies, including algorithmic strategies such as predictive policing. This book is essential reading for thoughtful policing and legal scholars as well as those interested in political philosophy, political theory, psychology, and related areas. Now more than ever, the nature of the police role is a philosophical topic that is relevant not just to police officials and social scientists, but to everyone.

Meanwhile, each day another public figure confesses to having ‘misspoken’ and prostrates themselves before the judgement of Twitter. Begging for forgiveness, assuring the public “that is not who I am”. But if nobody is who they are anymore - then who the f##k are we? Ben Elton returns with a blistering satire of the world as it fractures around us. Get ready for a roller-coaster thriller, where nothing - and no one - is off limits.

Identity Crisis by Scott A. Campbell Book Resume:

“The woman looked at her, staring face-to-face. Adrienne grasped the candy machine, fumbling for a knob to hold onto, immediately vertiginous: it was the dead woman, the corpse, Andie Shipley. Locking eyes, boring straight into her, and then the dead woman moved from the pillar and walked toward her. “Adrienne released the candy machine, grabbed tight to her suitcase, and ran for the train. With a low metallic groan it was already moving. She dashed for the door Earl had disappeared into, still open, and from the edge of her vision saw the woman change course to follow. She sprinted the last few yards and jumped up into the doorway, but her suitcase smacked against the side of the train and wrenched out of her hand. “Clutching the handrail she spun around, went to her knees, and stretched her free arm out for her bag. But the train slid away, speed growing, and a second set of hands clasped her luggage instead. Andie Shipley on her knees beside the bag met eyes again with Adrienne, watched her and the train move out of reach, watched till Adrienne thought both their heads must explode. Then Andie stood with Adrienne’s suitcase, turned, and vanished back into Betws-y-Coed station.” Newly unemployed soap opera actress Adrienne Simpson is having some trouble figuring out who she is ... and who everyone else is as well. She’s witnessed a murder from the battlements of an ancient Welsh castle, and when she sees the body up close she finds it disconcertingly reminiscent of herself. In the night she is visited by a ghost, but it’s not the murder victim — it’s Allison Minor, the character she has played on television for the past four years, whose death scene she came to Wales to film. For years Adrienne has felt the character of Allison has held her back from becoming the person she might be, and now she discovers Allison, freed by her death, has felt the same way about Adrienne. And the next day, leaving Wales with the seductive and mysterious man she met at the murder scene, her luggage is stolen from the train station by Andie Shipley, the woman everybody agrees is dead. After a wild night with her new lover Earl, who has an uncertain connection with Andie Shipley, Adrienne flees to Manhattan. But Earl follows, Allison reappears, and Andie — dead or alive — takes over Adrienne’s apartment and identity in Los Angeles. There is no running from the weirdness that has invaded her life, so Adrienne heads for home to confront the truth, and the corpse, head-on. Full of thrills, romance, and laughs, Identity Crisis takes us into a world where nothing can possibly be what it seems. ... Can it?

Identity Crisis by Sally E. Dalglish Book Resume:

No mother has endured four children with the manic-depressive gene for 36 years, and, in league with one of her offspring, written about the lack of inhibition, horror and vigilance accompanying extreme moods. This is a candid study from insiders of the communication breakdowns, medication, red tape, misunderstandings and suicide of one family member. Sally and Simon are survivors, and Charles, though suffering highs and lows is too quick-witted by far to get entangled with the medical world. Mum's mother, Dandan, "e;never approached anything directly. She was feline in her inconsequential tangent-like approach to something upon which her mind was set like a vice."e; Alex was often mistaken for a doctor at the nurses' parties where he worked and was much admired as an artist. Deranged, he was unable to admit himself to a mental hospital and wrought havoc in his dream house. "e;Mum awoke to a thunderous racket. All the doors in the house were forcibly banged and torn open and banged again. There was a noise of shattering glass and china and heavy footfalls pounding on the stairs. Mum's heart beat loudly. She breathed heavily. She knew Alex would not hurt her when he was himself. He was a gentle being. Now he was certainly not himself. She cowered under the bedclothes."e; Mum, who had to contend with her indomitable mother and innumerable harrowing experiences could still, aged 98, say, "e;I've had many happy days in my life."e;

Identity Crisis by Daniel Day Book Resume:

A train with 184 passengers derailed and crashed high in the Colorado mountains on a cold December day in 2001. No one survived but one young man. He had been thrown across a ravine and landed on a flat rock, unconscious. When he regained consciousness, he discovered he had amnesia. He didn’t know where he was, where he came from, or where he was going. He didn’t know his name and had lost all of his identification and money during the wreck. During the next couple of days, he worked his way down the mountain until he found a small town. He tried to get work at different businesses in town but was unsuccessful. During the months that followed, as he struggled to survive and search for his identity, he encountered people of many different backgrounds. He punished some people, destroyed a drug ring, exposed the Mob, dealt with street thugs, and helped police catch a gang of thieves. He helped many other people: an old lady with little money, an abducted and abused girl, two mothers living in a homeless shelter, a destitute woman, and a distraught special-needs girl. He also saved one man’s company and another man’s ranch. All the people who met this unknown man were amazed at the deeds he preformed, the people he helped, and the crooks he destroyed, all while going through an identity crisis. Who was this man?

Becoming American? The Art and Identity Crisis of Yasuo Kuniyoshi by ShiPu Wang Book Resume:

"A few short days has changed my status in this country, although I myself have not changed at all." On December 8, 1941, artist Yasuo Kuniyoshi (1889-1953) awoke to find himself branded an "enemy alien" by the U.S. government in the aftermath of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The historical crisis forced Kuniyoshi, an émigré Japanese with a distinguished career in American art, to rethink his pictorial strategies and to confront questions of loyalty, assimilation, national and racial identity that he had carefully avoided in his prewar art. As an immigrant who had proclaimed himself to be as "American as the next fellow," the realization of his now fractured and precarious status catalyzed the development of an emphatic and conscious identity construct that would underlie Kuniyoshi’s art and public image for the remainder of his life. Drawing on previously unexamined primary sources, Becoming American? is the first scholarly book in over two decades to offer an in-depth and critical analysis of Yasuo Kuniyoshi’s pivotal works, including his "anti-Japan" posters and radio broadcasts for U.S. propaganda, and his coded and increasingly enigmatic paintings, within their historical contexts. Through the prism of an identity crisis, the book examines Kuniyoshi’s imagery and writings as vital means for him to engage, albeit often reluctantly and ambivalently, in discussions about American democracy and ideals at a time when racial and national origins were grounds for mass incarceration and discrimination. It is also among the first scholarly studies to investigate the activities of Americans of Japanese descent outside the internment camps and the intense pressures with which they had to deal in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor. As an art historical book, Becoming American? foregrounds broader historical debates of what constituted American art, a central preoccupation of Kuniyoshi’s artistic milieu. It illuminates the complicating factors of race, diasporas, and ideology in the construction of an American cultural identity. Timely and provocative, the book historicizes and elucidates the ways in which "minority" artists have been, and continue to be, both championed and marginalized for their cultural and ethnic "difference" within the twentieth-century American art canon.

The Retrieval of Liberalism in Policing by Luke William Hunt Book Resume:

There is a growing sense that many liberal states are in the midst of a shift in legal and political norms - a shift that is happening slowly and for a variety of security-related reasons. The internet and tech booms that are paving the way for new forms of electronic surveillance predated the 9/11 attacks by several years, while the police's vast use of secret informants and deceptive operations began well before that. On the other hand, the recent uptick in reactionary movements - movements in which the rule of law seems expendable - began many years after 9/11 and continues to this day. In The Retrieval of Liberalism in Policing, Luke William Hunt provides an account of how policing in liberal societies has become illiberal, in light of both internal and external threats to security. Hunt provides an examination of the moral limits on modern police practices that flow from the basic legal and philosophical tenets of the liberal tradition, arguing that policing in liberal states is constrained by a liberal conception of persons coupled with particular principles of the rule of law. Part I lays out the book's theoretical foundation, beginning with an overview of the police's law enforcement role in the liberal polity and a methodology for evaluating that role. Part II addresses applications of that theory, including the police's use of informants, deceptive operations, and surveillance. Hunt concludes by emphasizing how the liberal conception of persons and the rule of law constrain policing from multiple foundational stances, making the key point that policing in liberal societies has become illiberal in light of its response to both internal and external threats to security. Overall, this book provides an account of what it might mean to retrieve policing that is consistent with the basic tenets of liberalism and the limits imposed by those tenets.

Secret Identity Crisis by Matthew J. Costello Book Resume:

What Cold War-era superheroes reveal about American society and foreign policy Physicist Bruce Banner, caught in the nuclear explosion of his experimental gamma bomb, is transformed into the rampaging green monster, the Hulk. High school student Peter Parker, bitten by an irradiated spider, gains its powers and becomes Spiderman. Reed Richards and his friends are caught in a belt of cosmic radiation while orbiting the Earth in a spacecraft and are transformed into the Fantastic Four. While Stan Lee suggests he clung to the hackneyed idea of radioactivity in creating Marvel's stable of superheroes because of his limited imagination, radiation and the bomb are nonetheless the big bang that spawned the Marvel universe. The Marvel superheroes that came to dominate the comic book industry for most of the last five decades were born under the mushroom cloud of potential nuclear war that was a cornerstone of the four-decade bipolar division of the world between the US and USSR. These stories were consciously set in this world and reflect the changing culture of cold War (and post-cold War) America. Like other forms of popular entertainment, comic books tend to be very receptive to cultural trends, reflect them, comment on them, and sometimes inaugurate them. Secret Identity Crisis follows the trajectory of the breakdown of the cold War consensus after 1960 through the lens of superhero comic books. Those developed by Marvel, because of their conscious setting in the contemporary world, and because of attempts to maintain a continuous story line across and within books, constitute a system of signs that reflect, comment upon, and interact with the American political economy. This groundbreaking new study focuses on a handful of titles and signs that specifically involve political economic codes, including Captain America, the Invincible Iron Man, Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD, the Incredible Hulk to reveal how the American self was transformed and/or reproduced during the late Cold War and after.

Identity Crisis by Jefferson Bass Book Resume:

Renowned forensic anthropologist Bill Bass—founder of the Body Farm—tackles one of his most baffling cases ever in this real-life spellbinder In 1978, 56-year-old Leoma Patterson left a bar in Clinton, Tennessee, and was never seen again. Six months later, a female skeleton was found on a wooded lakeshore in a neighboring county. The bones were consistent with those of the missing woman, and one of Patterson's daughters recognized a ring found at the death scene as her mother's. The bones were buried, and six years later, a relative of Patterson's—one of the men she was last seen alive with—confessed to killing her. Case closed. But the tentative identification—made years before DNA testing was available to confirm it—failed to convince some of Patterson's relatives. And so it was that in 2005 Dr. Bass found himself winding around hairpin curves to the mountainside grave, where he would unearth the disputed remains and collect DNA samples. The forensic twists and turns that followed would test the limits of DNA technology … and of Dr. Bass's half-century of forensic knowledge.

Handbook of Police Administration by James Ruiz,Don Hummer Book Resume:

As figureheads of the most visible segment of criminal justice, today’s police administrators are forced to tackle challenges never faced by their predecessors. Heightened local and global threats, advanced technologies, and increased demands for procedural transparency require new levels of flexibility, innovative thinking, and the ability to foster and maintain relationships within the community. It is more crucial than ever to recruit and retain capable leaders to guide law enforcement agencies at this pivotal time in history. Covering areas such as leadership in policing, use of force, and understanding how the law shapes police practice, Handbook of Police Administration examines the key topics that must be considered by law enforcement professionals. Recognizing that police leaders need the skills and traits of a politician, accountant, attorney, field lieutenant, and futurist, the authors cover a variety of contemporary issues surrounding police administration and management. Divided into five thematic sections, it considers the legal aspects of overseeing a public sector organization, as well as how research, technology, and training can assist modern police leaders in performing their duties more effectively and efficiently. The book covers problematic issues such as officers accepting gratuities, undercover work, and the time criteria required for promotional consideration. It concludes with a chapter comparing administrative issues in Australia with many of the subjects previously addressed with regard to U.S. protocol. Using a range of perspective, differing viewpoints, and controversial issues, Handbook of Police Administration provides a springboard to stimulate discussion at the cutting-edge of debate in the dynamic field of policing.
