Subverting Empire : Deviance and Disorder in the British Colonial World by Will Jackson( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British Empire was never as orderly as its architects would have us believe. Across the British colonial world, rules were broken, norms and social conventions were ignored and boundaries were transgressed. This is the first historical study to probe the colonial history of deviance, bringing to light stories of subversive behaviour that were deliberately covered up. With case studies ranging from the Caribbean to the Pacific, Britain to East and Southern Africa, the book reveals what deviance in a colonial context entailed, as well as the ways in which deviants themselves were categorised, controlled and concealed. Ranging from murder to madness, forgery to fornication, Subverting Empire shows up the diverse ways in which colonial communities attempted to enforce social order - and the ingeniousness of those who undermined it
Madness and marginality : the lives of Kenya's white insane by Will Jackson( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on over 250 psychiatric case files, this book traces the lives of Kenya's 'white insane' to focus not on the 'great white hunters' and heroic pioneer farmers but on those Europeans who did not manage to emulate the colonial ideal. In doing so, the book raises important new questions around deviance transgression and social control
Bonkers Britain : what drives you nuts about modern life by Will Jackson( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laugh-out-loud collection of ludicrous laws, money-wasting council schemes, and ridiculous red tape Have you heard of the country whose schools have banned the use of egg boxes and toilet paper rolls in craft lessons as they pose a health risk (they could be carrying salmonella, don't you know), and removed pear trees from a picturesque lane because they were too dangerous? No? It's Britain! Learn how police community support officers giving talks on cycle safety were banned from cycling to schools to give them until they had passed a test and exam; and, after falling in the prison shower, a career criminal was compensated £248,000, including a substantial amount for lost earnings. If you find yourself grimacing at the stupidity of health and safety gone mad, you'll love this collection of idiotic interventions and ridiculous rules that have come into play to keep us from harm
