Moral panic : biopolitics rising by John Fekete( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author discusses the intersect of biopolitics and moral panic in Canada. Biopolitics is defined as political action resulting from self-identification through groups defined by categories like race or sex. Moral panics, often about sex on the surface, are seen as a fearful reaction to shifting or collapsing boundaries in cherished cultural meanings, values and institutions. The events used to illustrate this interaction revolve around two themes -- feminist politics and the incidence of violence against women, and the impact of gender and ‘political correctness’ on university campuses. The first part of the book examines criminal justice issues such as: the reliability of statistics date rape; the work of, and the reaction to, “Changing the landscape”, the final report of the Canadian Panel on Violence Against Women (Canpan), and the Women’s Safety Project
