Abstract

In the complicated interaction between sport and law, much is revealed about the perception and understanding of consent and tolerable deviance. When a football player steps onto the field, what deviations from the rules of the game are considered acceptable? And what risks has the player already accepted by voluntarily participating in the sport? In the case of Canadian football, acts of on-field violence, hazing, and performance-enhancing drug use that would be considered criminal outside the context of sport are tolerated and even promoted by team and league administrators. The manner in which league review committees and the Canadian legal system understand such actions highlights the challenges faced by those looking to protect players from the dangers of the sport. Although there has been some discussion of legal and institutional reforms dealing with crime and deviance in Canadian sport, little exists in the way of sports law, with most cases falling into the legal categories of criminal, administrative, or civil law. In Game-Day Gangsters, Fogel argues for a review of the systems by which Canadian football is governed and analyzes the reforms proposed by football leagues and by players. Juxtaposing material from interviews with football players and administrators and from media files and legal cases, he explores the discrepancies between the playersÕ own experiences and the institutional handling of disciplinary matters in junior, university, and professional football leagues across the country.

Abstract

Gandhi est une des figures politiques les plus marquantes du xxe siècle. Alors que sa vie n'a cessé d'alimenter de nombreuses controverses, celles-ci semblent souvent s'être évaporées sous la plume de ses biographes succombant aisément à l'hagiographie. Le présent ouvrage, qui se veut à la fois synthétique et critique, analyse la vie, la pensée et l'œuvre de Gandhi. Dans une première partie, les étapes marquantes de sa vie seront retracées en mettant en exergue la force, mais aussi les ambig...

Abstract

La question de la violence et de son traitement est une préoccupation sociale de plus en plus grande, qui suscite des débats passionnés. À cette question, la psychologie est tenue de répondre. De la violence en effet, on parle de plus en plus, ce qui n'empêche semble-t-il nullement le surgissement de ses diverses manifestations : guerre, tortures, terrorisme, violences de la rue, violences sexuelles, conjugales, physiques et/ou psychiques, violences de la société, violences symboliques, viole...

Abstract

Le massacre de l'École polytechnique à Montréal en 1989 ou bien encore le meurtre de la jeune Marie-Eve Larivière en 1992 ont fait rebondir le débat sur la violence à la télévision au Canada. Plus d'un million de personnes ont signé, à la suite de ce dernier drame, une pétition réclamant un renforcement du contrôle du contenu des programmes. Quelques faits sordides et sanglants ont eu le même impact sur une société américaine déjà ébranlée par les émeutes de Los Angeles et le revisionnement i...

Abstract

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. The extent of violence against women is currently hidden. How should violence be measured? How should research and new ways of thinking about violence improve its measurement? Could improved measurement change policy? The book is a guide to how the measurement of violence can be best achieved. It shows how to make femicide, rape, domestic violence, and FGM visible in official statistics. It offers practical guidance on definitions, indicators and coordination mechanisms. It reflects on theoretical debates on ‘what is gender’, ‘what is violence’, and ‘the concept of coercive control’. and introduces the concept of ‘gender saturated context’. Analysing the socially constructed nature of statistics and the links between knowledge and power, it sets new standards and guidelines to influence the measurement of violence in the coming decades.

Abstract

"The text explores the phenomenon of violence, retracing the sociological theory from the classical paradigms to the frontier of interpretative readings outlined in the digital society age. The aim is to arrive at an interpretation on violence and the possible connections that go from traditional society, in the historiographic sense of action, to the challenges proposed by contemporary society. What is the form that violence takes today? Which are the indicators that allow you to recognize it? Following these reflections, this book raises the question about the social nature of violence in the many forms in which it manifests itself. The analysis that is proposed is therefore that of seeking the widespread dimensions within which the contemporary individual acts, as well as identifying the indicators that, through functional categories, can prevent and combat violence."
