            Why We Need Sex Crime Laws Based on Facts, Not Fear
                      EMILY HOROWITZ
              In this timely and extensively researched book, sociologist Emily Horowitz shows
            how current sex offense policies in the United States create new forms of harm and
            prevent those who have caused harm from the process of constructive repentance or
            contributing to society after punishment. Horowitz also illustrates the failure of criminal
            justice responses to social problems. Sharing detailed narratives from the experiences of
            those on registries and their loved ones, Horowitz reveals the social impact and cycle of
            violence that results from dehumanizing and banishing those who have already been held    January 2023 ,  210pp ,  6 1/8x9 1/4

              Organized Environmental Crime

            Black Markets in Gold, Wildlife, and Timber
                      DAAN VAN UHM
            Organized Environmental Crime explains how and why transnational criminal organizations
            diversify into the illegal trade in natural resources. Daan van Uhm breaks new ground by
            rejecting the classic image of organized crime as specializing in one kind of criminal activity.
            Instead, the rising global scarcity of natural resources increasingly attracts transnational
            criminal organizations, which rapidly shift from “traditional” criminal activities, such as
            drug or human trafficking, to the illegal trade in natural resources.
            The proliferation of this organized environmental crime exacerbates the global destruction    January 2023 ,  285pp ,  6 1/8x9 1/4
