This is a detailed study of the extent to which an increased influx of foreign workers is a threat to law and order in the context of the data-generating process of police statistics and the media coverage of "crimes" committed by foreigners. It shows that a general mood in which foreign workers are viewed as potential danger to Japanese society "protects" the criminalization of foreign "illegal" migrant workers. The work begins by tracing the upsurge of "illegal" foreign workers in Japan. It builds a social profile of these "illegals" showing that because of fear of expulsion, lack of knowledge of the law and over-dependence on employer and workplace, their ability to avail themselves off the protection of the law is neglible, and they are always at risk of becoming victims to multiple exploitation.

Japan's Comfort Women tells the harrowing story of the "comfort women" who were forced to enter prostitution to serve the Japanese Imperial army, often living in appalling conditions of sexual slavery. Using a wide range of primary sources, the author for the first time links military controlled prostitution with enforced prostitution. He uncovers new and controversial information about the role of the US' occupation forces in military controlled prostitution, as well as the subsequent "cover-up" of the existence of such a policy. This groundbreaking book asks why US occupation forces did little to help the women, and argues that military authorities organised prostitution to prevent the widespread incidence of GI rape of Japanese women, and to control the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

This book examines the relationship between women and terrorist activities in the post-World War II era. Utilizing comparative research into 26 terrorist organizations world-wide, the work identifies a dichotomy whereby women are significantly more active in domestic terrorist organizations than in international groups. Women and Terrorism argues that domestic terrorist organisations employ revolution, secession, or other means to change internal aspects of the state and the social and economic structure it maintains. This offers the possibility of change in women’s societal status; therefore, women are drawn to domestic terrorist organizations in much higher proportions and choose a much greater level of activity, entering the ranks of combat, leadership, and policymaking. By contrast, international terrorist groups oppose outside forces, such as imperialism, capitalism, Western culture, or other more nebulous concepts. Gonzalez-Perez argues that female lack of participation in these activities reflects the fact that women will be relegated to the status quo, regardless of the success or failure of the international terrorist movement.

49% of the world’s population lives in small towns, villages and farms, yet until recent years criminological scholarship has focused almost exclusively on urban crimes. The Routledge International Handbook of Rural Criminology is the first major publication to bring together this growing body of scholarship under a single cover. For many years rural criminology has remained marginalized and often excluded from the mainstream, with precedence given to urban criminology: this volume intends to address that imbalance. Pioneering in scope, this book brings together leading international scholars from fourteen different countries to offer an authoritative synthesis of theoretical and empirical literature. This handbook is divided in to seven parts, each addressing a different aspect of rural criminology: Rurality and crime Criminological dimensions of food and agriculture Violence and rurality Drug use, production and trafficking in the rural context Intersections between rural and green criminology Policing, justice and rurality Teaching rural criminology Edited by a world renowned scholar of rural criminology, this book explores rural crime issues in over thirty-five countries including Japan, Sweden, Brazil, Australia, Tanzania, the US, and the UK. This is the first Handbook dedicated to rural criminology and is an essential resource for criminologists, sociologists and social geographers engaged with rural studies and crime.

Mehrfache Reisen oder Pilgerfahrten nach Südindien führten Wolfgang Herbert, den „verspäteten Hippie“, mit Vorliebe an den Fuß des Arunachala, eines heiligen Berges in Tamil Nadu, wo der wohl paradigmatischste Weisheitslehrer des modernen Indien, Ramana Maharishi, gewirkt hatte. Berichtet wird über historische, mentale und leibliche Begegnungen mit Botschaftern des geistigen Indien – stets balancierend zwischen Skepsis und Offenheit. Allerorten wird dabei ausgelotet, wie weit eine – unter den Vorzeichen der Globalisierung – echte Begegnung zwischen Ost und West möglich sein mag. Das Buch ist eine Collage aus Reisejournalen, Reflexionen über orientalische Philosopheme und deren Ertrag qua meditativer Exerzitien. Es erlaubt eine kaprizenhafte Lektüre, querfeldein und nach thematischem Gusto. Indien darf auch als Chiffre für die Suche nach dem wahren Selbst stehen, einer romantischen Sehnsucht nach – wie seit altersher kolportiert – dem Land der Weisen und Seher. Dabei begegnet der Autor einer genauso schockierenden wie befreienden Weltsicht: einer radikal non-dualen Ontologie. Entwickelt in den philosophischen Endnoten zu den heiligen Schriften der Hindus, den Veden, meisterlich entfaltet von Shankara als Advaita-Vedânta, der Lehre der „Nicht-Zweiheit“ und gegenpolig elaboriert in den metaphysischen Spekulationen der mahâyâna-buddhistischen Weisheitsliteratur. Dabei geht es um authentische Mystik – und die gipfelt immer in All-Einheitslehren: im Abendland eher verfemt, aber unterströmig tradiert und weitergeflüstert von Plotin über Eckhart bis Spinoza und Ken Wilber. Sie werden zu Verbündeten im Ringen um eine Synthese oder einer Versöhnung zwischen „okzidentalem“ und „asiatischem“ Denken. Die Exkursionen sind dabei auch stets experimenteller Natur – sie führen ins Labor des eigenen Geistes. Der Autor hat sich viele Jahre mit yogischen und zen-buddhistischen Meditationsweisen befasst und versucht diese auf einer spirituellen Landkarte zu verorten. Dr. Wolfgang Herbert stammt aus Westösterreich und lebt als Professor für Vergleichende Kulturwissenschaften (Universität Tokushima) seit Ende der 1980er Jahren in Japan.
