By emphasizing how history, political culture, rules, and institutions influence choices that lie at the heart of governing, this book presses the reader to think about how these forces conspire to shape politics today and how they will determine the state of affairs tomorrow. The thoroughly revised fourth edition includes coverage of the political problems raised by the state's persistent drought, the widening of health care access to low-income children and adults, the increase in the state's minimum wage, controversy over legislation for mandatory vaccination of schoolchildren, and the state's precariously balanced budget.

A practical, inside look at the world of corrections Updated with state-of-the-practice information, recent data, and new research and findings, Corrections: An Introduction, 5/e, provides a practical approach to the world of corrections. Richard Seiter focuses on what people do in corrections, why they do it, and what challenges face contemporary correctional staff and administrators. Seiter gives students a first-hand look at corrections, integrating his experience in the field with correctional theory, history, and policy. Coverage of the realities and rationales of actual correctional practices at the local, state, and federal levels allows readers to see how theory is put into practice. Engaging case studies, career tips, and personal insights help students connect with the material and gain a realistic and practical understanding of corrections today. Corrections, 5/e is also available via REVEL(TM), an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. Learn more.

  • The gender of empire: masculinities
  • The gender of empire: femininities
  • The institutions of empire
  • The artifacts of empire
  • The race of empire
  • The end of empire.
Intimate Empires: Body, Race, and Gender in the Modern World offers an interpretive synthesis of recent scholarship on intersections of gender, race, and empire from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries. It untangles the embodied experiences and representations of people all over the world in the era of Europe's global dominance. Studies of intimate experiences complicate narratives of imperialism that have traditionally revolved around political and economic developments and thus obscured the ways in which ordinary people ignored, survived, co-opted, or even subverted imperialists and their institutions. The book discusses the development and coproduction of metropolitan and colonial identities alike, incorporating art, children's literature, cookbooks, and sport in addition to migration, missionary work, and legal trials. Organized thematically, each of the six chapters moves from the mid-eighteenth through the mid-twentieth centuries to unfold an aspect of identity.
