Nick Bentley takes a fresh look at English fiction produced in the 1950s. By looking at a range of authors, he shows that the novel of the period was far more diverse and formally experimental than previous accounts have suggested.

The ‘War on Terror’, State Crime & Radicalization

The ‘War on Terror’, State Crime & Radicalization ebook ISBN: 3030401383

This book examines the ‘war on terror’ and radicalisation from an ontological, non-state centric perspective. Since 9/11, criminology has developed in its study of terrorism, utilising alternative non-state centric frameworks to uncover and make visible state-initiated harm. Although progress has been achieved, criminology has continued to privilege the state, thereby failing to uncover forms of state crime and how such crimes facilitate radicalisation and terrorism. Ahmed aims to rectify this gap by demonstrating how crimes of the state have contributed to the existence of Islamist-inspired terrorism and the emergence of global Jihadist organisations like Al-Qaeda and ISIS. The ‘War on Terror’ abandons the dominant socially-constructed discourse and application of the ‘war on terror’ and instead favours a grounded approach whereby actors, actions and consequences are analysed according to the risk they represent. Ahmed achieves this grounded approach through situating state practices in international human rights law and international humanitarian law. Through documenting the intersectionality of these practices with radicalisation in the emergence of global Jihadist organisations, the book demonstrates how state crimes contribute to terrorism. Although the book sits at the intersections of critical criminology, state crime, international/transnational crime, it is relevant to all disciplines that are concerned with state crime, terrorism and radicalisation.

Ulysses S. Grant faced numerous political challenges during 1874. In the south, the Republican party steadily receded from power. As the year opened, Grant conceded Texas to the Democrats, counseling the recently defeated Republican governor to “yield to the verdict of the people as expressed by their ballots.” Throughout the spring, Grant monitored an explosive situation in Arkansas, where rival governors set up contending governments. And in Louisiana, the emergence of the White League led to a pitched battle on the streets of New Orleans. All over the south, what Grant called “atrocities” led blacks to petition him, as did a group in Louisiana: “Give us peace or give a Territory to ourselves Mr. President.” The nation also reeled from the aftermath of a financial panic. In Congress, so-called soft money men, led by midwestern and western politicians, fought to keep wartime greenbacks in circulation to ease the burdens of farmers and other debtors. Hard money advocates championed creditors who contended for a fair return on their loans. A bill generally considered inflationary passed Congress in April. Indecisive, Grant prepared two messages on the bill. In the first, never sent, he gave grudging approval. His ringing veto sent Congress back to work: “I am not a believer in any artificial method of making paper money equal to coin when the coin is not owned or held ready to redeem the promises to pay.” In June, Grant signed a compromise bill that eased inflation fears. Appointments continued to cause turmoil. He selected the largely unknown Ohio lawyer Morrison R. Waite for chief justice after a revelation from Caleb Cushing's past undermined his first nomination. Unable to persuade Elihu B. Washburne to replace an overwhelmed William A. Richardson as secretary of the treasury, Grant nominated another second choice, Benjamin H. Bristow. A frequently slighted Secretary of State Hamilton Fish stayed in the cabinet only after Grant's special pleading. Despite these difficulties, many discussed a third term for Grant, who remained discreetly silent on the issue. In October, Grant made his first visit to Indian Territory, where he saw “on every side evidence of prosperity.” As he toured, troops completed a four-month campaign against Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne raiders on the southern plains. Further north, Lieutenant Colonel George A. Custer led a party to survey the Black Hills, sacred to the Sioux. Ostensibly scouting sites for military posts, the expedition discovered gold, and the arrival of prospectors by year's end threatened peace in that region. Family and friends had always eased Grant's burdens, but in 1874 the White House seemed a gloomier place after daughter Ellen (Nellie) married in May and left for a new life with her husband in England. Less distressing was the October wedding of eldest son Frederick, who married into an American family. Persistent losses at his farm near St. Louis offset some of this happiness. The year closed with Grant quite conscious of public and private uncertainties looming in his future.

The Criminalisation of Fantasy Material

This book addresses the criminalisation of sexually explicit material depicting or describing fictitious characters who appear to be children. It is the first book of its kind to specifically examine the expansion of the law to include fictional representations of children, focusing on the law in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The author explores the potential criminalisation of comics and subgenres of manga that frequently depict childlike characters in a sexual context. Of course, the need to protect children from harm outweighs freedom of expression and the right to privacy; however, this argument is complicated by the material being purely fictional. Does prohibiting the fictional representation of minors interfere with individual freedoms? Based on a detailed socio-legal study, this book extensively analyses literature and pertinent theories of criminalisation, such as the Harm Principle, Offense Principle, and Legal Moralism. The book will be an invaluable resource for academics and students in various disciplines, including law, criminology, sociology, and psychology. It will also be of interest to fans of fantasy fiction.

This book offers readings of Barker's innovations in narrative form, her revisionist perspectives on history, class and gender, and her preoccupation with themes of trauma, haunting and terror. It also analyzes the reasons for her success and significance as a novelist. The chapters draw on contemporary theories of critical realism, gender and social identities, memory and narrative, in order to outline the debates with which Barker's work has consistently engaged.

Au croisement d'une approche historique, linguistique et littéraire, ce livre porte sur un espace géographique perçu alternativement comme colonial, puis national, par chacun des trois protagonistes : l'Irlande, l'Angleterre et la France entre le Ve et le XVe siècle. Que l'Irlande ait été " colonisée " par des missionnaires passés par la Gaule et par l'île de Bretagne, que l'Aquitaine comme la Normandie aient été des provinces anglaises, que l'Angleterre ait été considérée comme une colonie normande ou française, tous ces avatars n'ont pu empêcher l'émergence de nations souveraines. Et la naissance d'identités nationales s'est accompagnée d'un enrichissement mutuel, comme le montrent les études linguistiques portant sur l'anglais des XIIIe et XIVe siècles. Loin de s'arrêter au Moyen Age, la fertilisation croisée des imaginaires se poursuit jusqu'à nos jours, sous la forme d'écrits mais aussi de films reflétant les perceptions modernes de mythes immortels comme celui du roi Arthur. L'immense succès littéraire de Tolkien doit beaucoup aux Plantagenêt (les premiers à récupérer la figure du Roi-chevalier à des fins " nationalistes "), tout comme aux récits mythologiques irlandais, preuve supplémentaire du rôle essentiel joué par le monde celtique dans la culture occidentale.

Just one month before the end of the First World War, the mail boat RMS Leinster was sunk by three torpedoes fired by the German submarine UB-123 on 10 October 1918. Death in the Irish Sea reveals for the first time the full circumstances of Ireland's greatest maritime disaster. The sinking occurred in sight of Dublin and claimed the lives of 500 of the 771 occupants. The issues of Home Rule and Conscription were extremely sensitive and demands for a public enquiry into the sinking of the RMS Leinster were refused. Very limited investigation followed and the findings were censored.
