This book deals with the impact of the sociocultural environment on body-image in Western consumer culture. Based on McCracken’s (1986) meaning-transfer model, the author has created a body-image meaning-transfer (BIMT) model. It suggests how cultural discourse and interactions can shape individual consumers’ understanding of socially ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bodies. It emphasizes the notable impact of mainstream advertising, media, and celebrity culture that commonly promote a thin-and-muscular beauty-ideal, and the process of normalization which implies feelings of guilt, anxiety, public observation, and failure. Both can ultimately lead to negative body-images and body-dissatisfaction among individuals. In contrast, alternative campaigns against the current beauty-ideal and towards healthier body-images are introduced. Two focus group discussions among young adults from the UK and Germany provide insight into the timeliness of the topic concerned.

Dieser Roman gibt dem namenlosen Toten aus »Der Fremde« von Camus ein Gesicht Ein Roman aus Algerien, der um die Welt geht: in Frankreich ein Riesenbestseller, in den USA und England als literarische Sensation gefeiert, jetzt in deutscher Übersetzung. Die Geschichte des namenlosen Arabers aus Camus’ weltberühmtem Roman »Der Fremde« – erzählt von dessen Bruder. Der alte Mann, der Nacht für Nacht in einer Bar in Oran seine Geschichte erzählt, ist der Bruder jenes Arabers, der 1942 von einem gewissen Meursault am Strand von Algier erschossen wurde – in einem der berühmtesten Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts. 70 Jahre später, mit all dem Ärger, der Angst und Frustration eines Lebens im Schatten dieses Todes, gibt der alte Mann seinem Bruder seinen Namen zurück. Der Araber aus Camus’ Roman »Der Fremde« bekommt so eine Identität und eine Geschichte. Eine Geschichte, die untrennbar mit der Algeriens verknüpft ist und doch gleichzeitig so berührend und persönlich, dass man das Buch nicht mehr aus der Hand legen kann. Ein großer Roman darüber, wie die Vergangenheit unsere Gegenwart prägt, und über die ungebrochene Kraft der Literatur, eine tiefere Erkenntnis, eine verborgene Wahrheit ans Licht zu bringen. Das Buch gilt jetzt schon als Klassiker – gleichwertig zu Camus’ Roman: »Ein großartiger Roman. In Zukunft wird man ›Der Fremde‹ und ›Der Fall Meursault – eine Gegendarstellung‹ nebeneinander lesen.« Le monde des livres

Nearly 185,000 homicides since 1980 remain unsolved, yet with limited staff and resources, it is no surprise that law enforcement units place the bulk of their efforts on current cases where victims’ family members and the media demand answers. Cold Cases: An Evaluation Model with Follow-up Strategies for Investigators provides a comprehensive roadmap for digging those cold cases out of the file room and getting them resolved. Practical and concise, the book is an invaluable tool for police officers and detectives attempting to solve crimes that would otherwise be forgotten. Evaluating the Case Divided into three sections, the book begins with a historical perspective on how cases get to the point where it appears all investigative leads have been exhausted. It includes a chapter on understanding the process of homicide and those who kill — critical information for the homicide investigator. Next, the authors explain the evaluation model. They demonstrate the key elements of organization, thoroughness, and the value of the scientific method. This section validates theories of the crime, raises evidentiary issues and concerns, addresses the informational and behavioral aspects relative to the crime and the participants in the crime, and documents investigative strategies for future efforts on the case. Investigating and Solving the Crime The third section discusses the investigation that follows the evaluation. The book considers questions investigators must ask, including what should be looked at beyond the case file itself, and how the growth in technology since the date of the incident might provide new opportunities to uncover clues. This section also explores the choice of interview/interrogation techniques based on the behavioral aspects involved. Finally, the authors suggest how investigators can maximize their efforts and obtain not just an arrest, but a conviction. Useful appendices include sample standard operating procedures from three different agencies to use as a guide for setting up a cold case unit and a list of additional resources a department may look to for assistance. By following the cold cases evaluation model in this volume, those charged with resolving long-forgotten crimes can increase their chance of an accurate resolution, or at least be able to say that everything that can be done has been done.
