by Jeffrey B. Snipes,Alexander L. Gerould,Thomas J. Bernard

Criminology is a booming discipline, yet one which can appear divided and fractious. In this rich and diverse collection of 34 essays, some of the worlds leading criminologists respond to a series of questions designed to investigate the state, impact and future challenges of the discipline: What is criminology for? What is the impact of criminology? How should criminology be done? What are the key issues and debates in criminology today? What challenges does the discipline of criminology face? How has criminology as a discipline changed over the last few decades?The resulting essays identify a series of intellectual, methodological and ideological borders. Borders, in criminology as elsewhere, are policed, yet they are also frequently transgressed; criminologists can and do move across them to plunder, admire, or learn from other regions.

Family secrets and dramas are part of the human condition. It was very interesting when the cultural spin was added. As the next generation of secrets was to be added, I did not want the story to end. I wanted to see how our heroine would step up and handle truthful living. Give me more about her please!
This book was not what I expected but I enjoyed being transported into another culture. I did not expect the ending, that was a total surprise. The characters were people I could identify with and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
A very good read, historical facts intertwined with a family saga of epic proportions. The effect of political decisions make a lasting impression on the generation living through them, and then on the generations that follow, not often reflected on, in such an inspirational narrative.
A young woman with many traditions ready to make a life out of the family guidelines. Good read and some sorpresas
Enjoyed this book immensely. Very fine writing and a very moving story. It's always wonderful to learn more about different cultures and this book did an excellent job in its portrayals.
I am an outsider in the world of mid-Eastern cultures, yet the emotions conveyed in this remarkable novel made me have a simple understanding which is at each of our cores--our differences really are more similar than we could ever guess.
Great book! A fascinating and warm view of the inner workings of a widespread family with an intriguing history. Lots of exploration of personality traits, human weakness, and familial duties as seen through the lens of cultural tradition. A lot of wisdom and a lot to think about!
I enjoy reading the perspective of a different than myself . Also I find the ethnic teachings fascinating.
