A painful view of the current state of juvenile justice in the United States is presented in this volume which asks whether the 'children's court' has outlived its usefulness. As pressure builds to handle more children in adult courts and to consign them to adult prisons, the authors explore alternatives to the custodial treatment of juveniles and suggest how the juvenile justice system can, and should, be reformed.

Managing in Developing Countries

As consumers, suppliers, competitors, and capital users, the 142 developing countries in the world are of major and growing importance to more than 140,000 Western managers who do business with the Third World on a daily basis, often as partners in strategic alliances. Yet, other than theoretical articles in the economic development literature, there are few sources to which these managers, faced with a very different and difficult business environment, can turn. Now, building on 25 years as a teacher, researcher, and advisor to companies, governments, and international agencies in developing nations, James Austin presents the most complete and comprehensive analysis of the dynamics of the T...

Zen and the Brain

  • Published: 1999-06-04

  • Publisher: MIT Press

A neuroscientist and Zen practitioner interweaves the latest research on the brain with his personal narrative of Zen. Aldous Huxley called humankind's basic trend toward spiritual growth the "perennial philosophy." In the view of James Austin, the trend implies a "perennial psychophysiology"—because awakening, or enlightenment, occurs only when the human brain undergoes substantial changes. What are the peak experiences of enlightenment? How could these states profoundly enhance, and yet simplify, the workings of the brain? Zen and the Brain presents the latest evidence. In this book Zen Buddhism becomes the opening wedge for an extraordinarily wide-ranging exploration of consciousness. I...

It's About Time: America's Imprisonment Binge

Based on extensive research, IT'S ABOUT TIME: AMERICA'S IMPRISONMENT BINGE, 4e offers a compelling argument illustrating how the U.S. attempts to lower crime by using our correctional system as the primary solution. The book's comprehensive coverage exposes students--many for the first time--to the varying points of view of the corrections system. Personal accounts from prisoners--and one of the authors--spotlight the brutal aspects of prison life and the intent of the U.S. to create a prison industrial complex. The authors, one of whom served 10 years in prison before becoming a noted criminologist in the field, present the material in a powerful but compassionate manner. Completely current, the Fourth Edition includes updated statistics and coverage of such key issues as sex offenders, immigration, the impact of the war on terror, and more. The book's strong research foundation and reader-friendly presentation make it an ideal resource for a wide variety of courses.
