Siggi Jepsen, incarcerated as a juvenile delinquent, is one day assigned to write a routine German lesson on the "The Joys of Duty." Overfamiliar with these "joys," Siggi sets down his life since 1943, a decade earlier, when as a boy he watched his father, constable of the northernmost police station in Germany, doggedly carry out orders from Berlin to stop a well-known Expressionist, their neighbor, from painting and to seize all his "degenerate" work. Soon Siggi is stealing the paintings to keep them safe from his father. Against the great brooding northern landscape. Siggi recounts the clash of father and son, of duty and personal loyalty, in wartime Germany. "I was trying to find out," Lenz says, "where the joys of duty could lead a people"

All Day: A Year of Love and Survival Teaching I...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

All Day is a behind-the-bars, personal glimpse into the issue of mass incarceration via an unpredictable, insightful, and ultimately hopeful reflection on teaching teens while they await sentencing. Told with equal parts raw honesty and unbridled compassion, All Day recounts a year in Liza Jessie Peterson's classroom at Island Academy, the high school for inmates detained at New York City's Rikers Island. A poet and an actress who had done occasional workshops at the correctional facility, Peterson was ill prepared for a full-time stint teaching in the GED program for the incarcerated youths. For the first time faced with full days teaching the rambunctious, hyper, and fragile adolescent inmates, "Ms. P" comes to understand the essence of her predominantly black and Latino students as she attempts not only to educate them but to instill them with a sense of self-worth long stripped from their lives. "I have quite a spirited group of drama kings, court jesters, flyboy gangsters, tricksters, and wannabe pimps all in my charge, all up in my face, to educate," Peterson discovers. "Corralling this motley crew of bad-news bears to do any lesson is like running boot camp for hyperactive gremlins. I have to be consistent, alert, firm, witty, fearless, and demanding, and, most important, I have to have strong command of the subject I'm teaching." Discipline is always a challenge, with the students spouting street-infused backtalk and often bouncing off the walls with pent-up testosterone. Peterson learns quickly that she must keep the upper hand - set the rules and enforce them with rigor, even when her sympathetic heart starts to waver. Despite their relentless bravura and antics - and in part because of it - Peterson becomes a fierce advocate for her students. She works to instill the young men, mostly black, with a sense of pride about their history and culture, from their African roots to Langston Hughes and Malcolm X. 1. Language: English.

Flawed Convictions

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The emergence of Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) presents an object lesson in the dangers that lie at the intersection of science and criminal law. As often occurs in the context of scientific knowledge, understandings of SBS have evolved. We now know that the diagnostic triad alone does not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an infant was abused, or that the last person with the baby was responsible for the baby's condition. Nevertheless, our legal system has failed to absorb this new consensus. As a result, innocent parents and caregivers remain incarcerated and, perhaps more perplexingly, triad-only prosecutions continue even to this day. Flawed Convictions: 'Shaken Baby Syndrome' and the Inertia of Injustice is the first book to survey the scientific, cultural, and legal history of Shaken Baby Syndrome from inception to formal dissolution. It exposes extraordinary failings in the criminal justice system's treatment of what is, in essence, a medical diagnosis of murder. The story of SBS highlights fundamental inadequacies in the legal response to 'science dependent prosecution.' A proposed restructuring of the law contends with the uncertainty of scientific knowledge.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Shadow Alpha is the third, and full-length novel, in USA Today Bestselling author Carole Mortimer's HOT new ALPHA series. Sizzling contemporary romance with an added dash of danger. Stories of dark and compelling ALPHA men, who are used to taking what they want when they want it, and the strong and determined women who have no intention of being taken. Unless it's on their own terms... Dair Grayson runs a worldwide security company, and with his military background he's the perfect choice when Gregori Markovic, a boss of London's criminal underworld, needs someone to go and find, and if necessary rescue his sister. Straightforward enough, it's what Dair does, after all. Only trouble is, Dair hasn't seen Kat for 15 years, and his affectionate memories of her as a coltish fifteen-year-old in no way prepare him for the beautiful woman Kat has become. Kat has given up hope of being rescued from the hell in which she's been incarcerated for weeks. The arrival of Dair Grayson changes all that. But Dair is no longer that devil-may-care teenager she remembers from so long ago, but has become a hardened and scarred warrior. A warrior who is determined to rescue her, from herself, if necessary. On the run from Kat's ex-husband, the two of them are thrown together constantly, and Dair finds it harder and harder to resist this hot and sexy grown-up Kat. Except he doesn't do forever, and he learned his lesson long ago when it came to dark-eyed beauties like Katya Markovic, and has the scars to prove it. Kat doesn't want forever either, she's only interested in the here and now. And what she wants now is Dair, and for the two of them to satisfy the hot and explosive sexual tension between them until it's time for her to start running again. The only problem is, Kat's ex-husband is now looking for both of them... Author Note-The novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and stronger language than my other books.
