Summary

Traditionally, far-right terrorism has been the black swan of terrorism studies—receiving less attention than Jihadi extremism. In this book, William Allchorn takes a deep dive into multiple geographical locales and the online space of far-right movements, uncovering the crisis narratives that are animating violent far-right extremist milieus and presenting solutions on what we can do to stop them. 

Using eight country case studies and the results of an online pilot project, this is the first book-length presentation and discussion of counter techniques to far-right narratives—exploring their effectiveness, the ethics of such techniques, and their ability to disrupt pathways from radicalism towards violent extremism. Coming at a time of a renewed global wave of far-right violence, this book is of use to scholars as well as practitioners in the fields of far-right studies, terrorism studies, and strategic communications.

    Play like a girl! A female golf writer offers tips, inspiration, and laughs for women who want to excel at the sport.   Golf blogger Patricia Hannigan has a driving ambition: to get each of her thousands of female followers to play like a girl. That, she insists, is just the way for a woman to excel at golf—and, every bit as important, to have a lot of fun doing so.   A witty and wise departure from oh-so-predictable instructional guides, Golf Girl’s Little Tartan Book doesn’t focus only on technique. Hannigan also writes about attitude and the mental game, demonstrating how a gal who’s passionate about golf can use her womanly style to her distinct advantage on the course. From teeing off (don’t be coy about using those red tees) to getting teed off (don’t be timid about throwing the occasional tantrum), Hannigan entertainingly dispenses advice that’s sure to be useful to any woman intent on securing membership in the “boys’ club” called golf.

    Since the Victorian period, it has been understood that the story of Noah, iconic in the Book of Genesis, and a central motif in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, derives from a much older story that existed centuries before in ancient Babylon. But the relationship between the Babylonian and biblical traditions was shrouded in mystery. Then, in 2009, Irving Finkel, a curator at the British Museum and a world authority on ancient Mesopotamia, found himself playing detective when a member of the public arrived at the museum with an intriguing cuneiform tablet from a family collection. Not only did the tablet reveal a new version of the Babylonian Flood Story; the ancient poet described the size and completely unexpected shape of the ark, and gave detailed boat building specifications. Decoding this ancient message wedge by cuneiform wedge, Dr. Finkel discovered where the Babylonians believed the ark came to rest and developed a new explanation of how the old story ultimately found its way into the Bible. In The Ark Before Noah, Dr. Finkel takes us on an adventurous voyage of discovery, opening the door to an enthralling world of ancient voices and new meanings.

    The US Bureau of Justice Statistics estimates that law enforcement agencies have access to more than 100 million names stored in criminal history databases. In some cities, 80 percent of the black male population is registered in these databases. Digitize and Punish explores the long history of digital computing and criminal justice, revealing how big tech, computer scientists, university researchers, and state actors have digitized carceral governance over the past forty years—with devastating impact on poor communities of color. 
    Providing a comprehensive study of the use of digital technology in American criminal justice, Brian Jefferson shows how the technology has expanded the wars on crime and drugs, enabling our current state of mass incarceration and further entrenching the nation's racialized policing and punishment. After examining how the criminal justice system conceptualized the benefits of computers to surveil criminalized populations, Jefferson focuses on New York City and Chicago to provide a grounded account of the deployment of digital computing in urban police departments. 
    By highlighting the intersection of policing and punishment with big data and web technology, Digitize and Punish makes clear the extent to which digital technologies have transformed and intensified the nature of carceral power.

    Successful team building that exists in any workplace is involved with more than simply the creation of a successful team that has been given, instead of creating or building an entire ideal team from the beginning. There are particular core principles that are linked to effective team building that can help any organization or work situation get the best outputs out of any team that has to be managed. 
    By adopting the effective methods of team building, one can learn the processes of applying these principles towards: 
    A project-based team wherein even though the members are not expert in each of the given technical areas of the project, the members are still believed towards coordinating in the efforts of the team. 
    A proper support team wherein there exist problems with proper motivation as well as high level of staff turnover. 
    High-standard strategic team wherein the team members do not have the right to impose any direct forms of authority over other members in the team.
