This text poses the question why Americans, beginning in the 1820s and 1830s, simultaneously and confidently constructed prisons, insane asylums, reformatories and almshouses to confine and treat their deviant and dependent population. In his introduction, Rothman examines the reasons that this question is now one of the core concerns of European and American social history; analyzes the many imaginative answers that have been proposed; and evaluates their strengths and weaknesses.

Trust has never come easily to Stefan and Damon, but now that Samuel-- a vampire from Katherine's past bent on revenge--is determined to ruin their lives, the Salvatores must join forces to defeat their foe. Samuel has already ruined Stefan's chances at a normal life, and now he's framing Damon for the Jack the Ripper murders, too. With the help of Cora, a human girl, Stefan and Damon track Samuel from the glittering ballrooms of London to the city's asylum, which Samuel uses for his own nefarious purposes. However, while finding Samuel is easy, Damon and Stefan quickly learn that stopping him may be nearly impossible. Full of dark shadows and surprising twists, the fifth book in the Stefan's Diaries series raises the stakes for the Salvatore brothers as they face unimaginable threats. Fans of the Vampire Diaries series and the hit television show won't be able to put the latest Salvatore adventure down.

Over the last two decades, asylum has become a highly charged political issue across developed countries. This book draws upon political and ethical theory and an examination of the experiences of the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia to consider how to respond to the challenges of asylum. In addition to explaining why asylum has emerged as such a key political issue, it provides a compelling account of how states could move towards implenting morally defensible responses to refugees.

Dramatic scenes of exodus are played out every day on European soil: refugees stream out of Albania, there are displaced populations in the Caucasus & in the former Yugoslavia. Central & eastern Europe, once a land of emigration, has now become a region of both transit & refugee settlement. Guy S. Goodwin-Gill, a specialist in refugee law, appeals for a more effective application of existing international laws & instruments on refugees. Together with the Council of Europe, Mr Goodwin-Gill asks that European countries share the "refugee burden" more equitably, thus assuring decent living conditions for people fleeing from war, persecution & poverty.
