READING: 'Community' is one of those words that feels good: it is good 'to have a community', 'to be in a community'. And 'community' feels good because of the meanings which the word conveys, all of them promising pleasures, and more often than not the kind of pleasures which we would like to experience but seem to miss. 'Community' conveys the image of a warm and comfortable place, like a fireplace at which we warm our hands on a frosty day. Out there, in the street, all sorts of dangers lie in ambush; in here, in the community, we can relax and feel safe. 'Community' stands for the kind of world which we long to inhabit but which is not, regrettably, available to us. Today 'community' is another name for paradise lost - but for a paradise which we still hope to find, as we feverishly search for the roads that may lead us there. But there is a price to be paid for the privilege of being in a community. Community promises security but seems to deprive us of freedom, of the right to be ourselves. Security and freedom are two equally precious and coveted values which could be balanced to some degree, but hardly ever fully reconciled. The tension between security and freedom, and between community and individuality, is unlikely ever to be resolved. We cannot escape the dilemma but we can take stock of the opportunities and the dangers, and at least try to avoid repeating past errors. In this important new book, Zygmunt Bauman takes stock of these opportunities and dangers and, in his distinctive and brilliant fashion, offers a much-needed reappraisal of a concept that has become central to current debates about the nature and future of our societies.

Pages 370
ISBN 9781847319296
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Many academic criminal lawyers and criminal law theorists seek to resolve the optimum conditions for a criminal law fit to serve a liberal democracy. Typical wish lists include a criminal law that intervenes against any given individual only when there is a reasonable suspicion that s/he has caused harm to the legally protected interests of another or was on the brink of doing so. Until there is conduct that gives rise to a reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct by an individual, s/he should be allowed to go about his or her business free from covert surveillance or other forms of intrusion. All elements of crimes should be proved beyond any reasonable doubt. Any punishment should be proportionate to the gravity of the wrongdoing and when the offender has served this punishment the account should be cleared and good standing recovered. Seeking Security explores the gap between the normative aspirations of liberal, criminal law scholarship and the current criminal law and practice of Anglophone jurisdictions. The concern with security and risk, which in large part explains the disconnection between theory and practice, seems set to stay and is a major challenge to the form and relevance of a large part of criminal law scholarship.

READING: This study was designed to examine the perceived self-protective function and consequences of safety behaviour use in social anxiety. The research explores how individuals' selection and use of different types of safety behaviours might vary in relation to their specific social concerns and levels of trait social anxiety. It also explores differences between actor and observer interpretations of safety behaviour use and perceived utility, highlighting distinctions between how we view our own safety behaviour use versus how it might be viewed by others. Undergraduates completed self-report measures of social anxiety, specific social fears, and safety behaviour use. They also read vignettes in which they imagined and rated a central character who uses different types of safety behaviours (i.e., avoidance, impression management, or anxiety symptom management) in situations pertaining to different social fears (e.g., social incompetence, showing signs of anxiety, and physical unattractiveness). Results revealed that impression management safety behaviours were viewed as being most socially adaptive, while avoidance safety behaviours were relied upon by particularly anxious individuals, despite them not having as much faith in the usefulness of those safety behaviours. Findings also showed that there was a strong relation between perceived likelihood of using specific safety behaviours and their perceived social utility, but this perception was less robust when observing the safety behaviour use of other socially anxious individuals. By enriching our understanding of how and when specific safety behaviours promote positive or negative social outcomes within specific contexts, the present study lays the foundation for attempting to establish guidelines for more effective and idiographic treatment of socially anxious individuals.

READING: In the current world disorder, security is on everyone’s lips. But what is security from a cross-cultural perspective? How is it imagined and experienced by people on the ground? Crucially, what visions of the future are at stake in people’s potentially divergent concerns with security: what, and when, is the time of security? Exploring diverse notions and experiences of time involved in security practices across the globe, this volume brings together a selection of international scholars who conduct ethnographic research in a broad ambit of securitized contexts – from the experience of Palestinian detainees in Israel or forms of popular violence in Bolivia, to efforts to normalize social relations in post-conflict Yugoslavia and ways of imagining threat in left-radical protest movements in Northern Europe. Interrogating recent debates about the role of "securitization" in contemporary politics, the book paves the way for novel forms of security analysis at the crossroads between anthropology and political science, focusing on the comparative study of the temporalities of securitization in a multi-polar world. Offering a pioneering synthesis, the book will be of interest not only to anthropologists, but also to students and scholars in political science and the growing field of Security Studies in International Relations.

READING: Care of Children Exposed to the Traumatic Effects of Disaster addresses the effects of disaster on children and their families, and explores the various resources that mental health practitioners and others who routinely interact with children, such as teachers, first responders, health care professionals, child care providers, child welfare professionals, and faith-based community members, can use to help them in their hour of need. The three co-authors have had extensive, and intensive, experience working with disaster victims and preparing both professionals and laypeople to intervene effectively in extreme events. Those on the front lines will find the book's practical and insightful observations, techniques, and strategies indispensible. Specifically, the book Explains not only how to provide basic support services and brief interventions but how to recognize children in distress, to actively support positive coping skills, to monitor children's well-being in the aftermath of disaster and to identify those who need more intensive evaluation and intervention. Encompasses a broad range of disasters, from the "natural" (such as earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, and hurricanes) to the human generated (such as wars, civil strife, ethnic conflict, and acts of terrorism). Provides a timeline of psychological responses to disaster, with its impact phase and cascade of secondary adversities in the aftermath of disaster, which establishes helpful benchmarks to those providing support. Includes numerous tables and figures that convey complex information in an intuitive, easy-to-understand way. Care of Children Exposed to the Traumatic Effects of Disaster emphasizes the critical importance of effective therapeutic intervention -- which restores function, enhances recovery, and creates a safe and secure environment -- and explains how to mobilize family and social supports to achieve that goal.

READING: Reflecting a decade’s worth of changes, Human Safety and Risk Management, Second Edition contains new chapters addressing safety culture and models of risk as well as an extensive re-working of the material from the earlier edition. Examining a wide range of approaches to risk, the authors define safety culture and review theoretical models that elucidate mechanisms linking safety culture with safety performance. Filled with practical examples and case studies and drawing on a range of disciplines, the book explores individual differences and the many ways in which human beings are alike within a risk and safety context. It delineates a risk management approach that includes a range of techniques such as risk assessment, safety audit, and safety interventions. The authors address concepts central to workplace safety such as attitudes and their link with behavior. They discuss managing behavior in work environments including key functions and benefits of groups, factors influencing team effectiveness, and barriers to effectiveness such as groupthink.
