After Life Imprisonment: Reentry in the Era of Mass Incarceration (New Perspectives in Crime, Deviance, and Law)

One out of every ten prisoners in the United States is serving a life sentence-roughly 130,000 people. While some have been sentenced to life in prison without parole, the majority of prisoners serving ‘life’ will be released back into society. But what becomes of those people who reenter the everyday world after serving life in prison? In After Life Imprisonment, Marieke Liem carefully examines the experiences of “lifers” upon release. Through interviews with over sixty homicide offenders sentenced to life but granted parole, Liem tracks those able to build a new life on the outside and those who were re-incarcerated. The interviews reveal prisoners’ reflections on being sentenced to life, as well as the challenges of employment, housing, and interpersonal relationships upon release. Liem explores the increase in handing out of life sentences, and specifically provides a basis for discussions of the goals, costs, and effects of long-term imprisonment, ultimately unpacking public policy and discourse surrounding long-term incarceration. A profound criminological examination, After Life Imprisonment reveals the untold, lived experiences of prisoners before and after their life sentences.

Constitutional Law in Malaysia and Singapore 3rd Edition

This book established itself as the standard casebook in Constitutional Law for law schools in Malaysia and Singapore. To truly appreciate the disposition of constitutional law, a sound understanding of a c ountry’s history, economy, sociology and politics is needed. This book offers the student and casual reader, a wide range of readings covering these areas. Appropriate relevant introductions, notes, questions, commentaries and references have been provided. The chapters in this book have been re-ordered to reflect a more current view on how the subject should be approached, with the caveat that each topic is still self contained and may be used on its own in a more fragmented context. The number of cases and secondary material on the subject has also grown dramatically over the years and the jurisprudence of the Malaysian and Singaporean courts have diverged to the extent that this may well be the last edi tion that can practically accommodate such divergence in a single volume. A culmination of the authors’ knowledge based on their combined teaching experience of almost 40 years, this book is an authoritative reference on the subject matter.

Criminal Law for the 21st Century: A Model Code for Singapore

In this book, the authors propose a set of improved and modernised provisions expressing the general principles of criminal responsibility. This set of principles will comprise a “General Part” which, it is proposed , will form part of Singapore’s Penal Code. The key objective of devising and enacting the General Part is to significantly revitalise the Penal Code and restore many of its original technical attributes. Each chapter of this book comprises: (a) a carefully considered and drafted provision on a general principle of criminal responsibility; (b)a summary of the existing law in Singapore pertaining to that principle; (c) a selection of recent formulations of that principle from other jurisdictions to benchmark Singapore’s law (both current and proposed) with international best practices; and (d) a comparison of these formulations with the provision proposed in this book for inclusion as a General Part in Singapore’s Penal Code.

Detaining the Immigrant Other: Global and Transnational Issues 1st Edition

This edited text explores immigration detention through a global and transnational lens. Immigration detention is frequently transnational; the complex dynamics of apprehending, detaining, and deporting undocumented immigrants involve multiple organizations that coordinate and often act across nation state boundaries. The lives of undocumented immigrants are also transnational in nature; the detention of immigrants in one country (often without due process and without providing the opportunity to contact those in their country of origin) has profound economic and emotional consequences for their families. The authors explore immigration detention in countries that have not often been previously explored in the literature. Some of these chapters include analyses of detention in countries such as Malaysia, South Africa, Turkey and Indonesia. They also present chapters that are comparative in nature and deal with larger, macro issues about immigration detention in general. The authors’ frequent usage of lived experience in conjunction with a broad scholarly knowledge base is what sets this volume apart from others, making it useful and practical for scholars in the social sciences and anybody interested in the global phenomenon of immigration detention.

Rich Furman, MSW, PhD, is Professor of Social Work at the University of Washington, Tacoma. Douglas Epps, MSW, is a former immigration detention officer who spent several years working at one of the largest private detention facilities in the US Greg Lamphear works as an English teacher, and a freelance editor and writer.
