  • Publisher : Rutgers University Press
  • Release Date : 2002
  • Genre: Architecture
  • Pages :
  • ISBN 10 : 0813529816


The Pursuit of Pleasure Book Description :

Until recently, architectural historians have focused their attention on buildings financed by wealthy patrons and designed by prestigious architects. Historical analysis has centered on the politics of this architecture and how social class has contributed to the design. Feminist historians have explored the role of women architects, and they have examined how gender difference informs architectural design. Developing these areas of research, Jane Rendell discusses how gender theory can inform the study of architecture in early nineteenth-century London. She considers the gendering of public space as a complex and shifting series of moves between men and women, constructed and represented through spatial and social relations of consumption, display,...

Police Pursuit Driving Book Description :

Police pursuits, often receiving a lot of media attention, have become a topic of concern and priority for both law enforcement and the communities they serve.

In this brief, we summarize what is known about police pursuits, from both legal decisions and criminological research. We then discuss the impact of this research on police pursuit policy, court decisions, and media reports. We offer suggestions about the need for more development and use of research, and the challenges for research to be integrated into police policies, training, supervision and accountability systems....
