On Suicide Bombing
Like many people in America and around the world, Talal Asad experienced the events of September 11, 2001, largely through the media and the emotional response of others. For many non-Muslims, the suicide bomber quickly became the icon of an Islamic culture of death --a conceptual leap that struck Asad as problematic. Is there a religiously-motivated terrorism? If so, how does it differ from other cruelties? What makes its motivation religious ? Where does it stand in relation to other forms of collective violence? Drawing on his extensive scholarship in the study of secular and religious traditions as well as his understanding of social, political, and anthropological theory and research, Asad questions Western assumptions regarding death and killing. He scrutinizes the idea of a clash of civilizations, the claim that Islamic jihadism is the essence of modern terror, and the arguments put forward by liberals to justify war in our time. He critically engages with a range of explanations of suicide terrorism, exploring many writers' preoccupation with the motives of perpetrators. In conclusion, Asad examines our emotional response to suicide (including suicide terrorism) and the horror it invokes. On Suicide Bombing is an original and provocative analysis critiquing the work of intellectuals from both the left and the right. Though fighting evil is an old concept, it has found new and disturbing expressions in our contemporary war on terror. For Asad, it is critical that we remain aware of the forces shaping the discourse surrounding this mode of violence, and by questioning our assumptions about morally good and morally evil ways of killing, he illuminates the fragile contradictions that are a part of our modern subjectivity.

The Death Penalty: A Worldwide Perspective
The 4th edition of this authoritative study, now written jointly with Carolyn Hoyle, brings up-to-date developments in the movement to abolish the death penalty worldwide. It draws on Roger Hood's experience as consultant to the United Nations for the UN Secretary General's five-yearly surveys of capital punishment and on the latest information from a wide range non-governmental organizations and the academic literature. Not only have more countries abolished capital punishment, but amongst those that continue to retain it, the majority have been carrying out fewer executions. Legal challenges to mandatory capital punishment have been successful, as has the movement to abolish the death penalty for those who commit a capital crime when under the age of 18. This edition has more to say about the prospects that China will restrict and control the number of executions 'on the road to abolition'. Yet, despite such advances, this book reveals many human rights abuses where the death penalty still exists. In some countries a wide range of crimes are still subject to capital punishment, and the authorities often fail to meet the safeguards embodied in international human rights treaties to safeguard those facing the death penalty. There is evidence of police abuse, unfair trials, lack of access to competent defence counsel, excessive periods of time spent in horrible conditions on 'death row', and public, painful forms of execution. The authors engage with the latest debates on the realities of capital punishment, especially its justification as a uniquely effective deterrent; whether it can ever be administered equitably, without discrimination or error, and what influence relatives of victims should have in sentencing and public debate. For the first time it also discusses the problem of devising an alternative to capital punishment; especially, life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

Sex and the Supreme Court: Obscenity and Indecency Law in Canada
Recalling the Canadian laws pertaining to pornography and bawdy houses that were first developed during the Victorian era, this study recollects how the period perceived non-normative sexualities as a corruption of conservative morals, portraying them as harmful to society as a whole. The volume traces the sociolegal history of contemporary obscenity and indecency laws, contending that these policies continue to claim to protect society from harm. The analysis acknowledges how the court presently sees non-normative sexualities as a potential threat to liberal political values rather than conservative ones. Recognizing that reforms have been made--especially in light of feminist and queer challenges--this reference utilizes Foucault's governmentality framework, demonstrating that the liberal harm strategy for governing obscenity and indecency continues to disguise power.

Sentencing in the Netherlands: Taking Risk-Related Offender Characteristics into Account
The sentencing decision of the judge might be the most important decision in the criminal proceedings, not only because of the impact the punishment has on the offender, but also because the sentencing decision is a cornerstone of the legitimacy of the entire criminal justice system. Nonetheless, there still are questions about the factors judges take into account when making their sentencing decision. This study aims to improve our understanding of the sentencing decisions judges make. The developments in criminal justice practices as regards the emergence of 'actuarial justice' have directed the focus of this study to risk-based sentencing: are offenders with a high risk of reoffending more likely to be sentenced to imprisonment and to longer prison terms than low-risk offenders? To what extent do judges take information into account on the risk-related personal characteristics of the offender, such as unemployment, ties to family or friends, or drug usage, when making their sentencing decision? Using uniquely detailed data on risk-related social circumstances of the offender, and advanced quantitative and qualitative research methods, this study provides in-depth insight into sentencing.

Understanding Deviance: A Guide to the Sociology of Crime and Rule-Breaking
Downes and Rock's popular textbook, Understanding Deviance, provides the reader with an indispensable guide to criminological theory. It sympathetically outlines the principal theories of crime and rule-breaking, discussing them chronologically, and placing them in their European and North American contexts, confronting major criticisms that have been voiced against them, and constructing defences where appropriate. The book has been thoroughly revised and brought up-to-date to include new issues of crime, deviance, and theory in the early twenty-first century. It includes new studies in the areas of gang and subcultural theory, further discussion of post-modernism and the 'risk society', and assessment of how different approaches address the lengthy fall in crime rate across most democratic and developed societies.
