Children are innocent and beautiful. But there are people who use this innocence and their beauty to make them to "real tools of sexual satisfaction". Pedophilia is a terrible thing, but there are more and more organizations who trying to legalize pedophilia, and people were are trying to explain; pedophilia as something normal. Others trying to explain, that "pedophilia is a good thing for children". A terrible development prevails in Europe, because politicians and private organizations are trying to create a new form of society. But the background hides many side effects. And one of the worst side effects is the blind tolerance of all sexual orientations... ...and pedophilia is no exception. That is the reason why an analysis must be presented, who has important information for the police, for child-protection organizations and for parents who truly love their children. This work is dedicated for the protection of children, and it is a work for an international topic. Read more in the book...

Sexual Deviancy in Postwar Ontario

Contemporary efforts to treat sex offenders are rooted in the post-Second World War era, in which an unshakable faith in science convinced many Canadian parents that pedophilia could be cured. Strangers in Our Midst explores the popularization of the notion of sexual deviancy as a way of understanding sexual behaviour, the emergence in Canada of legislation directed at sex offenders, and the evolution of treatment programs in Ontario. Popular discourses regarding sexual deviancy, legislative action against sex criminals, and the implementation of treatment programs for sex offenders have been widely attributed to a reactionary, conservative moral panic over changing sex and gender roles after the Second World War. Elise Chenier challenges this assumption, arguing that, in Canada, advocates of sex-offender treatment were actually liberal progressives. Drawing on previously unexamined sources, including medical reports, government commissions, prison files, and interviews with key figures, Strangers in Our Midst offers an original critical analysis of the rise of sexological thinking in Canada, and shows how what was conceived as a humane alternative to traditional punishment could be put into practice in inhumane ways.

Child Sexual Abuse

Moral Panic or State of Denial?

Child sexual abuse is a major public policy challenge. Many child protection measures were beginning to reduce its occurrence. However, that progress was impeded by online grooming, the downloading of indecent images of children and even their abuse online in real time. This now places major demands on national and international policing. The book brings together groundbreaking case studies from a wide range of settings. As well as family members and those near the home, offenders can also be found in religious, sporting and childcare settings. This extensive picture is drawn deliberately in order to highlight a split in the academic analysis of child sexual abuse. The mainstream or orthodox view, defended by the author, is that child sexual abuse is an under-reported crime. However, a minority view, presented but criticised, is that it is a moral panic created by public hysteria, child protection experts and campaigning politicians. By the end of the book, this division of academic opinion and its implications for public policy are explored in detail. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in preventing child sexual abuse and the dilemmas of responding to both victims and perpetrators. It will be of particular use to practitioners in social work, the police and in the mental health professions.

Männliche Homosexualität

Anhand zahlreicher Fallberichte und unter Einbezug unterschiedlichster Lehrmeinungen läßt Friedman ein Bild von männlicher Homosexualität entstehen, das anschaulich und differenziert Entwicklung und Lebensstile beschreibt - und damit Vorurteilen sowohl der Alltagsmeinung wie auch einigen offiziellen Lehrmeinungen entgegenwirkt. Friedman plädiert für einen interdisziplinären Ansatz: Zwar hält er die psychoanalytische Argumentation stringent aufrecht. Er läßt dabei jedoch keinen Zweifel daran aufkommen, daß sozial- und sexualwissenschaftliche, familiendynamische wie auch neuropsychologische und endokrinologische Kenntnisse für ein umfassendes Verständnis männlicher Homosexualität ganz wesentlich sind und keinesfalls außer acht gelassen werden dürfen. Es ist Friedman gelungen, eine kritische Abhandlung - anschaulich und verständlich geschrieben - zur männlichen Homosexualtät vorzulegen, die mit Gewinn zu lesen ist.

Victimization through the Internet is becoming more prevalent as cyber criminals have developed more effective ways to remain anonymous. And as more personal information than ever is stored on networked computers, even the occasional or non-user is at risk. A collection of contributions from worldwide experts and emerging researchers, Cyber Criminology: Exploring Internet Crimes and Criminal Behavior explores today’s interface of computer science, Internet science, and criminology. Topics discussed include: The growing menace of cyber crime in Nigeria Internet gambling and digital piracy Sexual addiction on the Internet, child pornography, and online exploitation of children Terrorist use of the Internet Cyber stalking and cyber bullying The victimization of women on social networking websites Malware victimization and hacking The Islamic world in cyberspace and the propagation of Islamic ideology via the Internet Human rights concerns that the digital age has created Approaching the topic from a social science perspective, the book explores methods for determining the causes of computer crime victimization by examining an individual’s lifestyle patterns. It also publishes the findings of a study conducted on college students about online victimization. Advances in information and communications technologies have created a range of new crime problems that did not exist two decades ago. Opportunities for various criminal activities to pervade the Internet have led to the growth and development of cyber criminology as a distinct discipline within the criminology framework. This volume explores all aspects of this nascent field and provides a window on the future of Internet crimes and theories behind their origins. K. Jaishankar was the General Chair of the First International Conference of the South Asian Society of Criminology and Victimology (SASCV), held January 15-17, 2011 at the Hotel Jaipur Greens in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

»Arm an geschichtlichen Katastrophen war dieses Jahrhundert wahrlich nicht: zwei Weltkriege, Auschwitz, Nagasaki, dann Harrisburg und Bhopal, nun Tschernobyl. Das zwingt zur Behutsamkeit der Wortwahl und schärft den Blick für die historischen Besonderheiten. Alles Leid, alle Not, alle Gewalt, die Menschen Menschen zugefügt haben, kannt bisher nur die Kategorien der ›anderen‹ - Juden, Schwarze, Frauen, Asylanten, Dissidenten, Kommunisten usw.«

Außenseiter

Zur Soziologie abweichenden Verhaltens

​ „Der Mensch mit abweichendem Verhalten ist ein Mensch, auf den diese Bezeichnung erfolgreich angewandt worden ist; abweichendes Verhalten ist Verhalten, das Menschen als solches bezeichnen“: Es ist einer der klassischen Sätze der Devianzsoziologie in einem der Klassiker des Feldes. Howard S. Becker betont fernab von alten und simplistischen Fragen danach, „warum Menschen Regeln brechen“, welche Situationen und welche Prozesse dazu führen, dass Menschen in Positionen geraten, in denen sie als „Regelbrecher“ betitelt werden, wie sie mit diesen Positionen umgehen und sich auch gegen diese wehren. „Außenseiter“ erschien erstmals 1963 in New York und wurde 1981 bei S. Fischer in deutscher Übersetzung publiziert. Seit den frühen neunziger Jahren vergriffen, liegt hier nun eine von Michael Dellwing überarbeitete und herausgegebene Version vor.

Keine Beobachtung (und auch kein Interview, keine Dokumentensichtung und keine Materialanalyse) ist theoriefrei denkbar. In dem vorliegenden Band wird dargestellt, wie Forschende im wissenschaftlichen „Tagesgeschäft“ zu theoretischen Einsichten gelangen. Konzeptionelle Ordnungen und Abgrenzungen werden mit Bezug auf empirische Gegenstände benannt, verfeinert, aus neuen Blickwinkeln hinterfragt und weitergeführt. Dabei wird erkennbar, dass Theorie und Empirie in aller Regel weit weniger „streng nach Lehrbuch“ als vielmehr unter forschungspragmatischen Gesichtspunkten verknüpft werden.
