Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The Holloway Girls is about the power of a kiss—and the power of forgiveness, of siblings, of friendship, and, above all, of love. All wrapped up in a curse and woven through with magic. A page-turner that will charm you!" —Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author When your kiss is good luck, the wrong kiss could change everything... During the kissing season, one kiss from Remy or her older sister Maggie will give the boy—or girl—good luck. Or so it has been for all the Holloway girls before. But this year, Remy's first season, she doesn't follow the rules, dooming the boy she kisses to bad luck that almost kills him and leaving Remy with a cursed kissing season. Now Remy is adamant about keeping her lips to herself. But the new boy in town is making it hard to keep her promise. Especially because he seems to really want to get to know her, and isn't just using her for the Holloway luck. But before she can even think about kissing someone else, she'll have to find a way to fix the curse, or else her family's legacy will be tainted forever.

Download or read book Holloway Falls written by Neil Cross and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2009-12-15 with total page 539 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the acclaimed writer of Luther and Hard Sun comes a compulsive thriller. Meet William Holloway: Family man. Gentle man. Wanted man. Holloway has secrets. Years ago, he witnessed his wife's betrayal and his life fell apart. Now someone's toying with his mind and the life of a missing woman, the prostitute Holloway pays to imitate his ex-wife. When she is murdered, his ex-wife's name scrawled on her abdomen, Holloway is trapped by the consequence of love and sex, of infidelity and violence in a world of his own terrible making. Hunted as a rogue policeman and a killer, he's on the run. And planning retribution. Praise for Holloway Falls: 'A compulsive tale of disappearance, abduction, coincidence, psychotic jealousy and imaginative daring' Guardian 'An ingenious revenge thriller which draws you... then messes with your head as deviously as the dreamers, charlatans and conspiracy theorists who populate it' Time Out 'Distinctive, original... powerfully atmospheric and hypnotically rendered' Literary Review 'In the pantheon of screwed-up detectives... William Holloway is a name to watch' Arena 'Neil Cross's story is carefully told, finely spun, and while it does have the sex, violence and brutality of many of its peers, these men also feel. And cry. And care about their daughters. Which makes them way more interesting to read in an everyday love story gone badly wrong' Stella Duffy, author of the Saz Martin crime series

Book Women   s Imprisonment and the Case for Abolition

Download or read book Women s Imprisonment and the Case for Abolition written by Linda Moore and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-11-20 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 2007, the Corston Report recommended a far-reaching, radical, ‘women-centred’ approach to women’s imprisonment in England and Wales. It suggested a ‘fundamental re-thinking’ about how services to support women in conflict with the law are delivered in custody and in the community, recommending the development and implementation of a decarceration strategy. This argued for appropriate treatment programmes in the community, reserving prison for only those women who commit serious and violent offences. Ten years on, what progress has been made? What is the relationship between Corston’s vision and a more radical abolitionist agenda? Drawing on a range of international scholarship, this book contributes to the critical discourse on the penal system, human rights, and social injustice, revealing the consequences of imprisonment on the lives of women and their families. A decade on from Corston's publication, it critically reviews her report, revealing the slow progress in meeting the reforms it proposed. Identifying the significant barriers to change, it questions the failure to reverse the unrelenting growth of the women’s prison population or to transform state responses to women’s offending. Reflecting the global expansion of women’s imprisonment, particularly marked in advanced democratic societies, the chapters include comparative contributions from jurisdictions where Corston’s recommendations have relevance. It concludes with a critical appraisal of reformism and the case for penal abolition. Essential for applied and theory courses on prisons, punishment, and penology; social justice and the criminology of human rights; gender and crime; and feminist criminology.

Book Borstal Girl

Download or read book Borstal Girl written by Eileen MacKenney and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2011-07-07 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Born into a fog-ridden south London slum in 1931, Eileen Killick quickly learned to look after herself. Her brothers were wayward, her mum had TB and her dad was working all hours on the railways. By the time she was fourteen she had survived the Blitz, a spell in a care home and her mother's death, but she craved excitement, embarking on shoplifting sprees, liberating fur coats and rolling toffs up west with notorious 'queen of thieves' Shirley Pitts. Eileen soon found herself in borstal, put to work building roads like a navvy. Known as 'Kill', she had a reputation as one of the hardest woman behind bars. Then, in the 1950s she met and married career criminal Harry 'Big H' MacKenney, and she was soon fraternising with the toughest, most colourful characters in the London underworld. She went on to have four children, whom she loved and protected, but life was extremely tough and Eileen fell back into her old ways, thieving and fighting to make ends meet. The 1970s brought police corruption and brutality to Eileen's doorstep. When Harry was banged up, Eileen carried on the 'family business' alone and found herself on the wrong side of the law - again. Yet throughout a catalogue of trouble this defiant London bad girl of the old school always kept her defiant sense of humour. Borstal Girlis a true story of shocking violence and survival that pulls no punches, but it is also a secret criminal history of a London long past. There is no other female memoir like it.

Book Maternal Sentencing and the Rights of the Child

Download or read book Maternal Sentencing and the Rights of the Child written by Shona Minson and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2019-12-24 with total page 279 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book brings to life the experiences of children affected by maternal imprisonment, and provides unique, in-depth analysis of judicial thinking on this issue. It explores the experiences of children whose mothers are sentenced to imprisonment in England and Wales and contrasts their state-sanctioned separation from their mothers in the criminal courts (where the court may not even be aware of the existence of a child) to the state-sanctioned separation of children from their parents in the family courts, where the child has legal representation and their best interests are the court’s paramount consideration. Drawing on detailed empirical research with children, caregivers, and Crown Court judiciary, Maternal Sentencing and the Rights of the Child brings together relevant literature on law, criminology, and human rights to provide insight into the reasons for the differentiated treatment and its implications for children, their caregivers, and wider society.

Book A Contemporary History of Women s Sport  Part One

Download or read book A Contemporary History of Women s Sport Part One written by Jean Williams and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-04-24 with total page 408 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is an historical survey of women’s sport from 1850-1960. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of women’s sport has so far been shaped by academic writers. Questions explored in this text include: What are the fresh perspectives and newly available sources for the historian of women’s sport? How do these take forward established debates on women’s place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest? How can our appreciation of fashion, travel, food and medical history be advanced by looking at women’s involvement in sport? How can we use some of the current ideas and methodologies in the recent literature on the history and sociology of sport in order to look afresh at women’s participation? Jean Williams’s original research on these topics and more will be a useful resource for scholars in the fields of sports, women’s studies, history and sociology.

Book English Local Prisons  1860 1900

Download or read book English Local Prisons 1860 1900 written by Sean McConville and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-10-24 with total page 838 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The local prisons of the latter half of the nineteenth century refined systems of punishment so harsh that one judge considered the maximum penalty of two years local imprisonment to be the most severe punishment known to English law: "next only to death". This work examines how private perceptions and concerns became public policy. It also traces the move in English government from the rural and aristocratic to the urban and more democratic. It follows the rise of the powerful elite of the higher civil service, describes some of the forces that attempted to oppose it, and provides a window through which to view the process of state formation.

Book Science and the Construction of Women  RLE Feminist Theory

Download or read book Science and the Construction of Women RLE Feminist Theory written by Mary Maynard and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2012-11-12 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Science and the Construction of Women is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the major questions currently challenging feminist scholars of science. The authors ask key questions: What constitutes science? How have feminists investigated it? How does science ‘construct’ women? How can we create a feminist discourse of science? Are the current developments to women’s advantage or disadvantage? Their answers draw on material from a wide range of natural scientific, humanities and social science sources, critically examining theoretical approaches from the postmodern to the materialist to the cyborgian. A key argument of the book is that there are strong intellectual and pragmatic reasons – the rapid development of information technology, advances in fertility treatment and genetic engineering, feminist concern for environmental issues – why feminism must rigorously engage with issues of a scientific and technological nature. Science and the Construction of Women provides an important contribution to the opening-up and broadening of debate in the field. This book will be an important text for students of gender and women’s studies, and science studies. It is also designed to be read by feminists both inside and outside the academy and to appeal to all those with interests in the sociology of knowledge and the history of ideas.
