The Pazyryk Agenda

The Police Procedural [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Pazyryk Agenda by Edward P. Rich Book Resume:

This is a policewomans career on the streets of Chicago and one of its western suburbs about five years from now. A police procedural it is based on actual current regulations. In the world where Helen Bell worked each day any officers opinions and decisions are shaped by larger inner values no police department can instill. Each cop sees a slightly different version of every situation and each career has different turning points. Turning points can be fortunate or fatal for a career. An incident involving a shooting can be legally very complex. The shooter is not always responsible for his actions. In training a recruit a subject is shot and gravely injured. As the training officer, did she order the recruit to fire? Or did the recruit in his fear and inexperience act on his own? The responsibility of the training officer would have to be court tested. In their careers things police know or hear, the believed good will of their superiors is the factual information they rely on. Otherwise people and events outside their socially limited world can decide their actions. It was at this point and with these emotions that Helen Bell became exposed to The Pazyryk Agenda.

Mirage of Police Reform

The Police Procedural [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mirage of Police Reform by Robert E. Worden,Sarah J. McLean Book Resume:

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit to learn more. In the United States, the exercise of police authority—and the public’s trust that police authority is used properly—is a recurring concern. Contemporary prescriptions for police reform hold that the public would better trust the police and feel a greater obligation to comply and cooperate if police-citizen interactions were marked by higher levels of procedural justice by police. In this book, Robert E. Worden and Sarah J. McLean argue that the procedural justice model of reform is a mirage. From a distance, procedural justice seemingly offers a relief from strained police-community relations. But a closer look at police organizations and police-citizen interactions shows that the relief offered by such reform is, in fact, illusory.

Dick Tracy and American Culture

Since then America's most famous crime fighter has tangled with a variety of protagonists from locations as diverse as the inner city and outer space, all the time maintaining the moral high ground while reflecting American popular culture. Through extensive research and interviews with Chester Gould (the creator of "Dick Tracy"), his assistants, Dick Locher (the current artist), Max Allan Collins (who scripted the stories for more than 15 years) and many others associated with the strip, Dick Tracy as a cultural icon emerges. The strips use of both innovative and established police methods and the true-to-life portrayals of Tracy's family and fellow cops are detailed. The artists behind the strip are fully revealed and Dick Tracy paraphernalia and the 1990 movie Dick Tracy are discussed.

The Police Procedural [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Films of Joseph H. Lewis by Gary D. Rhodes Book Resume:

Joseph H. Lewis enjoyed a monumental career in many genres, including film noir and B-movies (with the East Side Kids) as well as an extensive and often overlooked TV career. In The Films of Joseph H. Lewis, editor Gary D. Rhodes, PhD. gathers notable scholars from around the globe to examine the full range of Lewis's career. While some studies analyze Lewis's work in different areas, others focus on particular films, ranging from poverty row fare to westerns and "television films." Overall, this collection offers fresh perspectives on Lewis as an auteur, a director responsible for individually unique works as well as a sustained and coherent style. Essays in part 1 investigate the texts and contexts that were important to Lewis's film and television career, as contributors explore his innovative visual style and themes in both mediums. Contributors to part 2 present an array of essays on specific films, including Lewis's remarkable and prescient Invisible Ghost and other notable films My Name Is Julia Ross, So Dark the Night, and The Big Combo. Part 3 presents an extended case study of Lewis's most famous and-arguably-most important work, Gun Crazy. Contributors take three distinct approaches to the film: in the context of its genre as film noir and modernist and postmodernist film; in its relationship to masculinity and masochism; and in terms of ethos and ethics. The Films of Joseph H. Lewis offers a thorough assessment of Lewis's career and also provides insight into film and television making in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Scholars of film and television studies and fans of Lewis's work will appreciate this comprehensive collection.
