'Hugely insightful and thought provoking . . . I read it from cover to cover in one go' Emilia Fox 'With characteristic brilliance and admirable sensitivity, Wilson illuminates the complex causes of their often horrific crimes' Professor Simon Winlow, Vice President of the British Society of Criminology Professor David Wilson has spent his professional life working with violent men - especially men who have committed murder. Aged twenty-nine he became, at that time, the UK's youngest ever prison Governor in charge of a jail and his career since then has seen him sat across a table with all sorts of killers: sometimes in a tense interview; sometimes sharing a cup of tea (or something a little stronger); sometimes looking them in the eye to tell them that they are a psychopath. Some of these men became David's friends; others would still love to kill him. My Life with Murderers tells the story of David's journey from idealistic prison governor to expert criminologist and professor. With experience unlike any other, David's story is a fascinating and compelling study of human nature.

THE PERFECT COMPANION TO PETER MAY'S LEWIS TRILOGY, AND A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE HEBRIDEAN ISLANDS. The landscape of the Outer Hebrides, with its stark cliffs, ghostly mists and lonely beaches, has become a definitive character of Peter May's Lewis trilogy. In Hebrides, readers will accompany him on an odyssey in prose and images, through a history of the Vikings' 'Long Island' and his own deep personal connection with the islands that influenced his bestselling work. Travelling as if alongside his protagonist Fin Macleod, he describes the island life - as bewitching as it is treacherous - his encounter with the bird-hunters of Sula Sgeir, the savage seas of Ness and the churches of Eriskay. With extracts from the trilogy and specially commissioned photographs, this book places his writing and characters within the land that gave them form. Couldn't get enough of the Lewis trilogy and its extraordinary setting? Check out Peter May's latest bestseller, Coffin Road, in which the million-selling master of crime brings murder back to the Outer Hebrides.

R442 R378 Discovery Miles 3 780 Save R64 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A straightforward discussion of the issues surrounding immigration U.S. immigration has been the subject of furious debates for decades. On one side, politicians and the media talk about aliens and criminals, with calls to "deport them all." On the other side, some advocates idealize immigrants and gloss over problems associated with immigration. Dialogue becomes possible when we dig deeper and ask tough questions: Why are people in other countries leaving their homes and coming here? What does it mean to be "illegal"? How do immigration raids, prisons, and border walls impact communities? Who suffers and who profits from our current system--and what would happen if we transformed it? The Politics of Immigration: Questions and Answers goes beyond soundbites to tackle these concerns in straightforward language and an accessible question-and-answer format. First published in 2007, this updated and expanded edition is an effective tool to confront current stereotypes and disinformation. Those who believe immigrants take jobs from citizens, don't pay taxes, strain public services, and threaten the dominant culture will find their assumptions challenged with compelling arguments and hard data. Ideal for classroom use, The Politics of Immigration provides those who are undecided about immigration with the facts and clear reasoning they need to develop an informed opinion.

Solomon Northup was born a free man in New York State. At the age of 33 he was kidnapped in Washington D.C. and placed in an underground slave pen. Northup was transported by ship to New Orleans where he was sold into slavery. He spent the next 12 years working as a carpenter, driver, and cotton picker. This narrative reveals how Northup survived the harsh conditions of slavery, including smallpox, lashings, and an attempted hanging. Solomon Northup was among a select few who were freed from slavery. His account describes the daily life of slaves in Louisiana, their diet and living conditions, the relationship between master and slave, and how slave catchers used to recapture runaways. Northup's first person account published in 1853, was a dramatic story in the national debate over slavery that took place in the nine years leading up to the start of the American Civil War.

Small Farmers, Big Change - Scaling up impact in smallholder agriculture (Paperback): David Wilson, Kirsty Wilson, Claire Harvey Small Farmers, Big Change - Scaling up impact in smallholder agriculture (Paperback)
David Wilson, Kirsty Wilson, Claire Harvey
R328 Discovery Miles 3 280 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Support for smallholder agriculture is seen as increasingly important, both to boost the food security and incomes of the rural poor and to provide food for urban populations. But to achieve scale in agricultural interventions, NGOs must move beyond a project-by-project approach and instead enable farmers to engage with market players. Small Farmers, Big Change considers learning from the experience of Oxfam's global agricultural scale-up initiative as well as from wider agricultural markets-based programming. This book includes very practical examples of achieving wider change in smallholder agriculture, through influencing policy and investment decisions, linking smallholders into markets and value chains, and innovating service provision for small farmers. The case studies outline what steps were taken to facilitate new types of farmer organization and alliances with an emphasis on promoting equitable livelihoods and developing rural women's economic leadership. Drawn from Africa, Latin America and Asia, the cases include information about challenges faced and what remains to be done in the future. This book should be read by the staff of donor agencies, policy makers, NGO practitioners, academics and students of development studies and the environment.

Mary Ann Cotton - Britain's First Female Serial Killer (Paperback): David Wilson Mary Ann Cotton - Britain's First Female Serial Killer (Paperback)
David Wilson
R457 Discovery Miles 4 570 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

As one of the UK's leading commentators, David Wilson shows how some serial killers stay in the headlines whilst others rapidly become invisible - or "unseen." Yet Mary Ann Cotton is not just the first but perhaps the UK's most prolific female serial killer, with more victims than Myra Hindley, Rosemary West, Beverly Allit or male predators such as Jack the Ripper and Dennis Nilsen. But her own north east of England (and criminologists) apart, she remains largely forgotten, despite poisoning to death up to 21 victims in Britain's 'arsenic century'. Exploding myths that every serial killer is a 'monster', the author draws attention to Cotton's charms, allure, capability, skill and ambition - drawing parallels or contrasting the methods and lifestyles of other serial killers from Victorian to modern times. He also shows how events cannot be separated from their social context - here the industrial revolution, growing mobility, women's emancipation and greater assertiveness. And concerning the reticence of 'human nature', like Dr Harold Shipman, Cotton was allowed to go on killing despite reasons to suspect her. The book contains other resonances to aid understanding of how serial murderers can go undiscovered despite such things as coincidence, gossip, whispers or motives that become more obvious with the benefit of hindsight. It is also a detective story in which the persistence of a single individual saw Cotton tried and executed, events analysed first-hand from the archives and location visits as the author fills the gaps in a remarkable story. By a leading expert on serial killers Meticulously researched and highly readable Fresh interpretations mean this book is destined to be the definitive title on Mary Ann Cotton.

Cities and Race - America's New Black Ghetto (Hardcover): David Wilson Cities and Race - America's New Black Ghetto (Hardcover)
David Wilson
R2,310 Discovery Miles 23 100 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Today, in the shadows of gleaming downtown skyscrapers and showy gentrified neighborhoods, conditions in many impoverished black ghettos in America's Rust Belt have substantially worsened. Leaders and residents in these communities struggle to acquire the resources to upgrade their communities, but contest a formidable obstacle: the accelerated push to make and protect downtown revitalized landscapes of consumption, pleasure, and affluent residency.
"Cities and Race" comprehensively explores this new black ghetto reality and discusses and explains:
- The rise of a new kind of black ghetto termed "the glocal ghetto
- The reality of a new third wave of black ghetto marginalizing since 1945 in public policy and popular discourse in America
- A new political-economic force that triggers the production of this new ghetto, "the global trope
- The ascendant characteristics of this new ghetto: a deepened poverty of its residents, anew denigrating pattern of representation assigned to residents and these communities, and a continued connection of this space to the prison-industrial complex in America
- The bolstered role that local politics plays in producing these new ghetto spaces.
"Cities and Race "concludes, in rich and original detail, that America has now spawned a new kind of ghetto that has become more impoverished and more impugned as the now crystallized zone of human discard in "the global era."

David Wilson
R525 Discovery Miles 5 250 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Serial Killers looks at every serial murder in Britain from the 'gay murders' of Michael Copeland in 1960 to the Ipswich murders of 2006 and from a victim-related perspective. Informed by direct experience of his work with serial killers, David Wilson's investigations identify people from vulnerable groups as being most at risk from Hunting Britons: elderly people, women involved in prostitution, gay men, runaways, throwaways, and children and kids moving from place to place. His book also looks at the phenomenon of serial killing in the context of 40 years of change in social attitudes, public mores and working methods and cultures across the criminal justice process. 'Lifts the lid on the social, institutional, political and economic contexts that make serial killing possible': John Muncie 'Reflects on serial homicides in ways which go beyond the usual focus of ...clinical characteristics. David Wilson paints on a much wider canvas': Keith Soothill 'Tackles the subject ...from a fresh perspective...Serial Killers will undoubtedly stir up a great deal of debate': Roger Hood 'Perceptive and accessible ...and David Wilson offers a new analysis on how to understand the failure ...to stop the Ripper killings': Douglas Sharp 'A timely - and because of its quality - a significant contribution to the field': Homicide Studies

David Wilson
R1,815 Discovery Miles 18 150 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book examines the conflict surrounding the latest redevelopment frontier in Chicago: the city's South Side blues clubs and blocks. Like Chicago, cities such as Cleveland, St. Louis, Boston, Washington D.C., Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia are experiencing a new redevelopment machine: one of tyrannizing and fear. Its actors are adroit at working via the creation of fear to "terror-redevelop" in these historically neglected neighborhoods. The book also discusses the powerful race and class-based politics in Chicago's blues clubs that resist such change. A "leisure as resistance" framework represents the latest innovative form of opposition to the transformation of these historic sites.

This book explores the societal construction of "black-on-black"--"referring to the 1980s when violence among African American perpetrators and victims increased. Massive job losses, debased identities, and rampant physical decay made American blacks seem ripe for explosive behavior. Many people blamed black lifestyle, values, and culture. David Wilson shows how America imbued a process of violence with race and accepted it as one of the country's most vexing ills during the Reagan era and afterward. Based on statistics, ethnographies, anecdotal accounts, and national reportage the findings are hard to dispute. Wilson tells of prominent conservative and liberal writers, reporters and politicians who collectively nurtured this issue, then parlayed it into "truth" in the public mind. Mixing memoirs, critical geographical studies, and race theory, the book shows how vulnerable groups of society can become pawns in an acute process of racial demonization. And how, in America, this allowed blacks to be marginalized.
