Alle meine Freunde haben wen umgebracht

Author: Curtis Dawkins
Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag
ISBN: 9783518757383
Release Date: 2018-03-12
Genre: Fiction

Curtis Dawkins schreibt aus ungewöhnlicher Perspektive. Den Weg des Schriftstellers hatte er eingeschlagen, in namhaften Magazinen veröffentlicht, geheiratet, drei Kinder bekommen. Dann tötete er auf Crack einen Mann. Jetzt sitzt er lebenslänglich im Knast. Und dort schreibt er Literatur, die taumeln lässt. Zwischen Härte und Schönheit, zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Liebe und Hass. Dieses Buch ist die kraftvolle literarische Anverwandlung eines Schicksals, es erzählt von Männern hinter Gittern und ihren Versuchen, etwas von dem zurückzugewinnen, was unwiderruflich verloren ist. Es spricht von Freiheit, Liebe und Familie aus der Sicht derer, die ihr Recht darauf verwirkt haben. Curtis Dawkins findet dafür eine massive Sprache, einen Sound voller Sehnsucht, Humor und Tragik. Alle meine Freunde haben wen umgebracht wird so zu einem neuen und streitbaren Meisterwerk amerikanischen Erzählens.

The American Prison

Author: Lynne Goodstein
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781468456523
Release Date: 2013-03-08
Genre: Psychology

Despite the dire forecasts of others who had themselves edited books, we proceeded with the project of an edited volume on the American prison, although with more than a little trepidation. We had heard the horror stories of authors turning in their chapters months or years late or never at all, of publishers delaying publication dates, of volumes that read more like patchwork quilts than finely loomed cloth. As if to prove the others wrong, our experience in editing this volume has been mar velous, and we think the volume reflects this. Most likely, the success of our experience and of the volume stems from two elements: first, the professionalism and commitment of the authors themselves; and second, the fact that early in the life of this volume, most of the authors convened for a conference to critique and coordinate the chapters. This book brings together an illustrious group of criminologists and correctional scholars who wrote chapters explicitly for this volume. Co hesiveness was furthered by the charge we gave to each author to (1) present the major issues, (2) review the empirical research, and (3) dis cuss the implications of this work for present and future correctional policy. The goal of this project was to examine the major correctional issues facing prison systems. The chapters scrutinize the issues from the perspective of the system and the individual, from theory to practical and daily management problems, from legal to psychological concerns.

The New Jim Crow

Author: Michelle Alexander
Publisher: Antje Kunstmann
ISBN: 9783956141591
Release Date: 2016-10-19
Genre: Political Science

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.

The American Spectator s Enemies List

Author:
Publisher: Open Road + Grove/Atlantic
ISBN: 9781555847111
Release Date: 2007-12-01
Genre: Humor

Written with the same acerbic wit and infectious humor that has made P. J. O'Rourke one of the most popular political satirists of all time, The Enemies List will keep you howling and his enemies scowling. From Noam Chomsky to Yoko Ono, from Peter, Paul, and Mary (yes, they're still alive) to all the people who think quartz crystals cure herpes, from Ralph Nader to the entire country of Sweden, P. J. O'Rourke has created a roster of the most useless, politically disgraceful, and downright foolish people around. Although a rating system of S=Silly, VS=Very Silly, SML=Shirley MacLaine was ultimately cast aside, the distinguishing feature of the cluster of dunces presented here is silliness, not political subversion. The Enemies List began as an article in the American Spectator and, as readers contributed their own suggestions, quickly grew into a hilarious and slashing commentary on politicians and celebrities alike. Now they have been named, we just need to figure out what to do with them. "To say that P. J. O'Rourke is funny is like saying that the Rocky Mountains are scenic—accurate but insufficient."—Chicago Tribune

Strange Highways Reading Science Fantasy 1950 1967

Author: John Boston
Publisher: Wildside Press LLC
ISBN: 9781434447463
Release Date: 2013-01-15
Genre: Literary Criticism

Science Fantasy blends science fiction AND fantasy, so it tends to be bolder and more highly colored than pure science fiction. In the middle of the last century, the British magazine SCIENCE FANTASY created its own distinctive strains of fantasy narrative, most famously by such writers as Brian W. Aldiss, J. G. Ballard, John Brunner, Michael Moorcock, and Thomas Burnett Swann, among others. This book looks closely at the whole trajectory of that lost magazine, from its birth in 1950 through 1967, when it was briefly called (SF) Impulse. John Boston provides a brilliantly insightful and often every funny account of the rise, evolution, and final fall of SCIENCE FANTASY, its writers, and its quirky editors. Boston is joined by writer and critic Damien Broderick, adding his own waspish and nostalgic comments. This volume, the first of three dealing with the history and development of the major British SF magazines, is a compelling night journey into the past, where the future took a turn down paths not often explored. It's a trip not to be missed.
