Young People and Social Control: Problems and Prospects from the Margins By Ross Deuchar, Kalwant Bhopal
This book explores young people’s experiences of social control and the state, especially those living at the margins of society within the UK. In particular, the book focuses on disadvantaged young people’s experiences in education, in the labour market, with police and within the criminal justice system.
It draws upon insights gathered by the authors in Scotland and England via in-depth interviews with, and observation of, young people in multiple settings and the barriers they come across in terms of justice, equity and inclusion.
Deuchar and Bhopal present a range of creative and engaging case studies that illustrate where barriers have been broken down between young people and the agents of social control and elucidate upon how a sense of justice and inclusion has emerged. With its wide-ranging, multi-perspective approach, this study will be essential reading for scholars and students of sociology, criminology and youth studies, as well as holding appeal for policy-makers and practitioners.

The Magi and the Apartheid Wall by E. Michael Jones
One hundred miles from the hottest place earth, in an oasis named Fasa, E. Michael Jones stumbled into a hall packed with hundreds of people who had waited over an hour to hear him speak. After an hour-long talk, followed by another hour of intense Q&A, a group of young Iranians started shouting at the back of the hall.
Ever Faithful: Race, Loyalty, and the Ends of Empire in Spanish Cuba by David Sartorius
Known for much of the nineteenth century as “the ever-faithful isle,” Cuba did not earn its independence from Spain until 1898, long after most American colonies had achieved emancipation from European rule. In this groundbreaking history, David Sartorius explores the relationship between political allegiance and race in nineteenth-century Cuba. Challenging assumptions that loyalty to the Spanish empire was the exclusive province of the white Cuban elite, he examines the free and enslaved people of African descent who actively supported colonialism. By claiming loyalty, many black and mulatto Cubans attained some degree of social mobility, legal freedom, and political inclusion in a world where hierarchy and inequality were the fundamental lineaments of colonial subjectivity. Sartorius explores Cuba’s battlefields, plantations, and meeting halls to consider the goals and limits of loyalty. In the process, he makes a bold call for fresh perspectives on imperial ideologies of race and on the rich political history of the African diaspora.
Social Rights Under the Constitution: Government and the Decent Life by Cécile Fabre
This book theoretically examines the recent and topical debates over democracy and social rights, arguing that there are four fundamental rights that should be constitutionalized; minimum income, housing, healthcare, and education. The theoretical discussion is explored within an analysis of important legal cases.
