Die Autorin widmet sich aktuellen Formen des Erinnerns an die stalinistischen Repressionen, insbesondere an die Arbeitslager der Stalinzeit. Zunächst untersucht sie drei Produktionen, die auf kanonischen Texten der sowjetischen Lagerliteratur basieren: die 2009 uraufgeführte Oper „Ein Tag im Leben des Ivan Denisovič“ nach der gleichnamigen Erzählung Aleksandr Solženicyns, die 2007 auf „Rossija“ erstausgestrahlte TV-Serie „Das Erbe Lenins“, die Leben und Werk Varlam Šalamovs inszeniert, sowie den internationalen Spielfilm „Within the Whirlwind“ (2009), der Motive aus Evgenija Ginzburgs Biografie bearbeitet. Hinzu kommen Texte, die neue literarische Zugänge zum Thema suchen: Sergej Lebedevs Roman „Der Himmel auf ihren Schultern“ (2011) sowie eine Reihe von Kriminalromanen (2008 ff.) angelsächsischer Autoren, deren Sujet in der Sowjetunion der Stalinzeit angesiedelt ist. Neben den inhaltlichen analysiert Nina Frieß dabei auch die sozialen Dimensionen des jeweiligen Mediums.

"Im Gefängnis San Pedro wurde man nicht von der Polizei belästigt und hatte leichten Zugang zu billigem, reinem Kokain. Einer der besten Orte in Südamerika, um wilde Partys zu feiern." Marschpulver ist ein atemberaubender Bericht über das Leben im bolivianischen Gefängnis San Pedro, in dem Insassen ihre Zellen von Maklern kaufen, Shops und Restaurants führen und Hunderte Frauen und Kinder gemeinsam mit verurteilten Familienmitgliedern innerhalb der Gefängnismauern leben. Korrupte Politiker und Drogenbarone wohnen in Luxusappartements, während die ärmsten Insassen Überfällen und Elend ausgesetzt sind. Teile des Gefängnisses, in denen tagsüber Kindergeschrei zu hören ist, beherbergen nachts Boliviens florierendste Drogenlabors. Doch inmitten von Korruption, Gewalt und dem täglichen Kampf ums Überleben ist Marschpulver auch die Geschichte einer ungleichen Freundschaft, entstanden unter kuriosen Umständen, zwischen Thomas, einem Drogenschmuggler, und dem jungen Anwalt Rusty. Dieser besticht die Wachen, lebt drei Monate lang gemeinsam mit Thomas in einer Zelle und schreibt dessen Erlebnisse auf – entstanden ist die zugleich ungewöhnlichste und spannendste Gefängnis-Story aller Zeiten.

Forensic Analysis of Tattoos and Tattoo Inks is the single most comprehensive resource on the analysis of tattoo inks and use of tattoos as a tool in forensic investigations and criminalistics. The book begins with a history of tattoos and tattoo inks, and covers the use of tattoos throughout time as aids in the identification of individuals. It presents identification methods of identification through tattoos on charred, decomposed, mummified, or otherwise unidentifiable remains in both criminal investigations and mass disasters. This book provides an understanding of the process of tattooing and the roles of tattoos in criminological inquiry and legal matters. It scientifically evaluates tattoo inks, documenting the physical properties of the inks both macroscopically and microscopically as well as spectroscopically—identifying the optical and chemical properties of the various pigments found in these inks. A thorough analytical method is developed to conform to current laboratory accreditation standards and the satisfaction of legal standards such as Frye, Daubert and the Federal Rules of Evidence. Forensic Analysis of Tattoos and Inks shows how routine scientific inquiry can be applied to tattoo evidence by adding an objective component to interpretation, identification, and individualization of tattoos and tattoo inks in investigations. It presents the science and chemistry of tattoos and tattoo inks as a reliable tool in forensic casework and other related criminal and legal matters.

Something happened in the 1990s; a group of people who were perceived as radical and unmentionable were transformed into a group of people who deserved human rights, and, if you looked close enough, were normal, just like everybody else (John DOCOEmilio (2002). Had a post-gay era (Ghaziani, 2011) begun? And if so, how might this impact on the meaning of sexual identity and a political movement steeped in identity politics? Have the LGBT youth of today been duped into conformity because..."

Prisons are on the increase from the United States to China, as ever-larger proportions of humanity find themselves behind bars. While prisons now span the world, we know little about their history in global perspective. Rather than interpreting the prison's proliferation as the predictable result of globalization, Cultures of Confinement underlines the fact that the prison was never simply imposed by colonial powers or copied by elites eager to emulate the West, but was reinvented and transformed by a host of local factors, its success being dependent on its very flexibility. Complex cultural negotiations took place in encounters between different parts of the world, and rather than assigning a passive role to Latin America, Asia, and Africa, the authors of this book point out the acts of resistance or appropriation that altered the social practices associated with confinement. The prison, in short, was understood in culturally specific ways and reinvented in a variety of local contexts examined here for the first time in global perspective.

Text in English & German. The opulently illustrated volume "Tattoo in Japan" is an impressive book about the high art of tattooing in Japan. Not solely for fans of tattoos, it's equally appealing for people who are interested in Japanese culture and art. This book will likewise delight graphic artists, fashion designers and visual artists. The art of creating long-lasting body decorations has an age-old tradition in Japan. Many parallels can be drawn between this traditional genre and classical ink paintings and woodcuts by Japanese masters. The grand master of an art is known in Japan as a "sensei": this book contains works by many of the finest and most prestigious master tattooists. These virtuosos provide inspiration and serve as role models for a younger generation of tattoo artists in their Asian homeland and abroad. Included are rare and beautifully documented works by traditional masters with their delicate and impressive full body suit tattoos, the style of which has changed very little since the Edo Period, when this art form first became popular. The art works are splendidly depicted in intimate photojournalism, where they provide silent testimony to months spent under the needles of these unparalleled masters, who explore the possibilities of their métier on and in their clients' skin. Tattoo aficionados will be familiar with the names of artists such as Horitoku, Horiyoshi III and Horiyasu, but this comprehensive book also features the diverse styles that are prominent in contemporary tattooing. The spectrum ranges from old school, to neo-traditional and contemporary styles. The volume's generously large format provides ample space for impressive photographs which artfully capture the diversity and lively creativity of Japan's contemporary tattoo scene. The visual interest is further enhanced by a successful mix of studio shots and photographs taken onsite. This lavishly illustrated book prioritises excellent printing and the best colour reproductions. Join us on a visual journey and indulge your senses in incredible imagery and colours. The book is divided into four chapters: Tokyo, Chubu (the region between Tokyo and Kyoto, with Nagoya as its capital city), Kyoto and Osaka. Tattooists in each metropolis have their own distinct styles and trends, spanning a wide spectrum from classically conservative to totally eccentric and extreme. Readers who are eager to delve more deeply into the subject will appreciate the numerous, well-researched texts about the history and background of tattooing. Rounding out the volume are interviews with grand masters, who offer exciting insights into their lives and work, as well as into the tattoo scene in general. "Tattoo in Japan" is a very special book that could only have been created thanks to a unique combination of much love, intense dedication and the utmost efforts by all its contributors. We sincerely hope you'll feel and share our enthusiasm.
