Le livre des sigles et des abr viations de la gendarmerie et de la police
Les sigles et les abréviations de la gendarmerie et de la police se retrouvent partout : dans la presse, dans les ouvrages spécialisés, dans les cours des écoles de police ou de gendarmerie, dans les documents officiels... Cet ouvrage est le compagnon idéal pour décrypter tous ces documents : avec plus de 600 entrées détaillées et commentées, il apportera aide et assistance à tous les élèves des écoles de gendarmerie et de police, officiers et sous-officiers, à ceux qui préparent un concours administratif, à toutes les collectivités locales en contact permanent avec les forces de police, à tous les réservistes de la gendarmerie, et enfin, aux nombreux lecteurs d'ouvrages sur le sujet. L'ouvrage est enrichi d'un cahier couleur (reprenant les grades de la gendarmerie et les galons de la police), et d'une dizaine d'organigrammes.
Gendarmerie et crimes de sang
Le crime de sang, parce qu'il porte atteinte à la vie humaine, constitue dans la plupart des sociétés l'une des infractions les plus graves. L'enquête policière sur de tels faits est devenue le modèle de fonctionnement des services spécialisés de police judiciaire. Cependant, les ouvrages faisant référence à cet aspect de la fonction policière sont rares, relevant surtout, au-delà de la multitude des œuvres romanesques, des mémoires autobiographiques ou des enquêtes journalistiques. Au sein même des forces de police française, les enquêtes criminelles de la gendarmerie sont peu connues, alors que, pourtant, celles-ci concernent, chaque année, plusieurs centaines de meurtres et d'assassinats, dont certains ont défrayé la chronique (affaire Grégory, Carole Dickinson...). Comment la gendarmerie s'est-elle organisée pour répondre à ces problèmes ? De quelles manières procèdent ses enquêteurs et à quelles difficultés sont-ils confrontés ? Quels sont les points forts et les faiblesses de son action dans ce domaine ? Comment s'organisent les relations avec les magistrats et les policiers ? Autant de questions d'actualité auxquelles cet ouvrage apporte un nouvel éclairage, en permettant d'appréhender comment s'est réalisée l'évolution d'une institution et d'une fonction confrontées aux changements de la société.
Securing Development: Public Finance and the Security Sector highlights the role of public finance in the delivery of security and criminal justice services. This book offers a framework for analyzing public financial management, financial transparency, and oversight, as well as expenditure policy issues that determine how to most appropriately manage security and justice services. The interplay among security, justice, and public finance is still a relatively unexplored area of development. Such a perspective can help security actors provide more professional, effective, and efficient security and justice services for citizens, while also strengthening systems for accountability. The book is the result of a project undertaken jointly by staff from the World Bank and the United Nations, integrating the disciplines where each institution holds a comparative advantage and a core mandate. The primary audience includes government officials bearing both security and financial responsibilities, staff of international organizations working on public expenditure management and security sector issues, academics, and development practitioners working in an advisory capacity.

Punishment and Social Structure
Why are certain methods of punishment adopted or rejected in a given social situation? To what extent is the development of penal methods determined by basic social relations? The answers to these questions are complex, and go well beyond the thesis that institutionalized punishment is simply for the protection of society. While today's punishment of offenders often incorporates aspects of psychology, psychiatry, and sociology, at one time there was a more pronounced difference in criminal punishment based on class and economics. Punishment and Social Structure originated from an article written by Georg Rusche in 1933 entitled "Labor Market and Penal Sanction: Thoughts on the Sociology of Criminal Justice." Originally published in Germany by the Frankfurt Institute of Social Research, this article became the germ of a theory of criminology that laid the groundwork for all subsequent research in this area. Rusche and Kirchheimer look at crime from an historical perspective, and correlate methods of punishment with both temporal cultural values and economic conditions. The authors classify the history of crime into three primary eras: the early Middle Ages, in which penance and fines were the predominant modes of punishment; the later Middle Ages, in which harsh corporal punishment and capital punishment moved to the forefront; and the seventeenth century, in which the prison system was more fully developed. They also discuss more recent forms of penal practice, most notably under the constraints of a fascist state. The majority of the book was translated from German into English, and then reshaped by Rusche's co-author, Otto Kirchheimer, with whom Rusche actually had little discussion. While the main body of Punishment and Social Structure are Rusche's ideas, Kirchheimer was responsible for bringing the book more up-to-date to include the Nazi and fascist era. Punishment and Social Structure is a pioneering work that sets a paradigm for the study of crime and punishment.
Hell s Angels
Journalist, maverick, rebel and author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Hunter S. Thompson offers another novel of American counterculture in Hell's Angels, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range. 'A phalanx of motorcycles came roaring over the hill from the west... the noise was like a landslide, or a wing of bombers passing over. Even knowing the Angels I couldn't quite handle what I was seeing. It was like Genghis Khan, Morgan's Raiders, the Wild One and the Rape of Nanking all at once.' In September, 1964 a cavalcade of motorbikes ripped through the city of Monterey, California. It was a trip destined to make Hell's Angels household names across America, infamous for their violent, drunken rampages and feared for the destruction left in their wake. Enter Hunter S. Thompson, the master of counter-culture journalism who alone had the ability and stature to ride with the Angels on their terms. In this brilliant and hair-raising expose, he journeys with the last outlaws of the American frontier. A mixture of journalism, story-telling and sheer bravado, Hell's Angels is Hunter S. Thompson at full throttle. 'Excellent documentary non-fiction' Time Out 'The maverick voice of American counterculture' Guardian 'There are only two adjectives writers care about any more - "brilliant" and "outrageous" - and Hunter has a freehold on both of them' Tom Wolfe 'The book that made Thompson's name' Loaded Hunter S. Thompson was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1937. He began his writing career as a sports columnist in Florida and went on to work on newspapers and magazines in New York, San Juan and Rio de Janeiro. His articles appeared in Esquire, Rolling Stone magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle. He is the author of a number of books, including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, The Great Shark Hunt, Generation of Swine, The Curse of Lono, Songs of the Doomed, Better Than Sex, The Proud Highway and The Rum Diary. Hunter S. Thompson died in 2005.
The modes of diffusion of ideas that shape planned environments, and the ways these ideas are realised, have been gaining prominence as subjects of study and discussion among planning historians and others. However, most studies have focused on the diffusion that has occurred within the sphere of the so-called First World, where the participants have been considered as relatively equal partners. On the other hand, where the diffusion took place between the First and Third Worlds, these exchanges have often been projected as one-way impositions where the receivers are silent, oppressed, impotent - if not outright invisible. More recently, some researchers have begun to approach the relations between actors and stakeholders in processes of planning diffusion in a more complex and ambiguous way. To begin with, the natives in developing countries, whether colonial or post-colonial, are being recognised as fully-fledged actors in the shaping of the built environment, with a variety of roles to play and means to play them, even if they frequently face many constraints to their actions. Moreover, the planning influences have started to be acknowledged as going in multiple directions, including back to the source of dissemination. Adaptation, hybridisation, mimicry and appropriation are just some of the forms of diffusion and adoption that are relevant. The specific traits of the indigenous also came to be viewed as something that is not necessarily evident: ultimately, who are the 'locals'? "Urbanism - Imported or Exported?" is the first book to examine the full complexity of these issues in detail. It raises conceptual questions concerning the identities of locals, the roles of relevant actors, and the modes of diffusion, as well as investigating the methodological implications for historians of the city-building process. Using examples from around the world, with a particular emphasis on Mediterranean countries, it offers a bold new approach to the concepts and methods of the study of planning history.
