All white people understand cultural differences from a platform of relative privilege, affecting their personal and professional interactions. How should they respond when confronted with this knowledge? This book looks at the concept of whiteness, and shows how individuals can 'unmask' their own whiteness and take meaningful steps to break down systematic and structural racism. Exploring how colonial history resulted in white privilege, this book examines how that privilege manifests today in a culturally diverse world, and the links between the rise in far-right politics and anti-immigration rhetoric that led to Brexit and Donald Trump's election. It looks at the pressures on privilege and white populations, with candid reflections on how even well-meaning white people may project unconscious bias in their everyday lives, including the author's own experiences. There are also dedicated chapters on training to raise awareness of white privilege in professional organizations.

Building on the success of the second edition, Criminology: A Sociological Introduction offers a comprehensive overview of the study of criminology, from early theoretical perspectives to pressing contemporary issues such as the globalization of crime, crimes against the environment and state crime. Authored by an internationally renowned and experienced group of authors in the Sociology department at Essex University, this is a truly international criminology text that delves into areas that other texts may only reference. This new edition will have increased coverage of psychosocial theory, as well as more consideration of the social, political and economic contexts of crime in the post-financial-crisis world. Focusing on emerging areas in global criminology, such as green crime, state crime and cyber crime, this book is essential reading for criminology students looking to expand their understanding of crime and the world in which they live.

»Ein Meisterwerk des investigativen Journalismus. Ein kluges, fesselndes Buch!« The Guardian Timbuktu ist ein Mythos – einst so reich, dass angeblich sogar die Sklaven Goldschmuck trugen, verfügt die abgelegene Stadt am Niger über einen ganz besonderen Schatz: eine der größten Bibliotheken mittelalterlicher Schriften. Als im Jahr 2012 die Stadt in die Hände von Islamisten fällt, droht die Vernichtung der Bücher. Doch eine Gruppe von Bibliothekaren und Archivaren schmuggelt die Bücher unter Lebensgefahr aus der Stadt. Eine große, meisterhafte Reportage über Menschen, die sich mutig der Vernichtung eines Wissensschatzes und Erbes der Menschheit entgegenstellen – und eine Zeitreise zu einer sagenumwobenen Stadt.
