In Making Trouble leading scholars in criminology, sociology, criminal justice, women's studies, and social history explore the mediated cultural dynamics that construct images and understanding of crime, deviance, and control. Contributors examine the intertwined practices of the mass media, criminal justice agencies, political power holders, and criminal and deviant subcultures in producing and consuming contested representations of legality and illegality. While the collection provides broad analysis of contemporary topics, it also weaves this analysis around a set of innovative and unifying themes. These include the emergence of ""situated media"" within and between the various subcultures of crime, deviance, and control; the evolution of policing and social control as complex webs of mediated and symbolic meaning; the role of power, identity, and indifference in framing contemporary crime controversies, with special attention paid to the gendered construction of crime, deviance and control; and the importance of historical and cross-cultural dynamics in shaping understandings of crime, deviance, and control.

Robert Manne has twice been voted Australia's leading public intellectual. This book will show you why. Making Trouble takes aim at the new Australian complacency. This is a book that will enlighten and challenge, as it traces the ideas and events that have recently changed the nation. It covers much ground - from Howard to Gillard by way of Rudd, from Victoria's bushfires to the Apology, from Wilfred Burchett to Julian Assange. Making Trouble also includes an exchange of letters with Tony Abbott, critical appraisals of the 'insider' Paul Kelly and the 'outsider' Mark Latham, an insightful discussion of the political and moral issues surrounding climate change, appreciations of W.E.H. Stanner and Primo Levi, a reflection on ways of remembering the Holocaust, and incisive and original essays about the question of reconciliation and the treatment of asylum seekers. As this eloquent and important book shows, no one in Australia makes a better argument than Robert Manne.

What happens when angry young rebels become wary older women, raging in a leaner, meaner time: a time which exalts only the “new,” when the ruling orthodoxy daily disparages everything associated with the “old”? Delving into her own life and those who left their mark on it, Lynne Segal journeys through time to consider her generation of female dreamers, the experiences that formed them, what they have left to the world, and how they are remembered in a period when pessimism pervades public life. Searching for answers, she studies her family history, sexual awakening, and ethnicity, as well as the peculiarities of the time and place that shaped her political journey, with all its urgency, significance, pleasures and absurdities.

Fair trade jewellery has been around for a while - but while those crafting it worked under Fair Trade principles, the gold, silver and precious stones they were using came from some very murky places. Small scale mining is the second biggest global employer, and many of those mines pay a pittance, forcing their workers to labour long hours in dirty and dangerous conditions - for a pittance. Informed by those in the jewellery trade that this would never change, Greg Valerio set out to prove them wrong. Fairly traded gold is now available in the UK, although the battle continues for other metals and products.

Anti-prostitution campaigns and attempts to regulate the sex trade in Canada have been made over the past few decades to no avail. Sociologist Deborah Brock argues that the public views prostitution as a social issue, whereas the prostitutes consider it employment. Brock's critical survey should become a standard source in Canadian criminology.

Thoroughly updated to include events that have occurred in the decade since it was originally published, this second edition of Making Work, Making Trouble re-establishes this work as the pre-eminent study of prostitution in Canada. Detailing the various forces that have presented prostitution as a social problem, Deborah R. Brock examines anti-prostitution campaigns, urban development, new policing strategies, and the responses of the media, the courts, and governments, as well as feminist, rights, and residents' organizations. Paying particular attention to rights and the means of economic survival within global and local realities, this edition includes new material on recent discourse on sex trafficking, migrant sex work, ex-worker rights organizing, and considers the potential impact of the Robert Pickton trial on the practice of sex work. A comprehensive overview of the crucial debates on prostitution, Making Work, Making Trouble is a welcome addition to twenty-first century sociology and criminology.

So what if you have talent? Then what? When John Waters delivered his gleefully subversive advice to the graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design, the speech went viral, in part because it was so brilliantly on point about making a living as a creative person. Now we can all enjoy his sly wisdom in a manifesto that reminds us, no matter what field we choose, to embrace chaos, be nosy, and outrage our critics. Anyone embarking on a creative path, he tells us, would do well to realize that pragmatism and discipline are as important as talent and that rejection is nothing to fear. Waters advises young people to eavesdrop, listen to their enemies, and horrify us with new ideas. In other words, MAKE TROUBLE! Illustrated with slightly demented line drawings by Eric Hanson, Make Trouble is a one-of-a-kind gift, the perfect playbook for gaming the system by making the system work for you.
