First published in 1992, Public Order and Private Lives is a radical examination of the political forces which shaped the law and order debate in Britain at that time. The authors offer a significant and provoking analysis of Conservative policies on crime, showing that, ironically, they created the very social conditions in which crime flourished. The book argues that the Conservative government undermined basic civil liberties by its increased use of legislation as a means of control and coercion, and as a result of this, crime increased under their governance

The Sociology of Youth Culture and Youth Subcultures (Routledge Revivals) : Sex and Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll? by Mike Brake( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1980, this book argues that subcultures are formed in defence of collectively experienced problems that arise from defects and contradictions in social structures. Mike Brake looks at the development of post-war youth culture in a sociological context and considers the class base of youth subcultures, showing that they generate a form of collective identity from which an individual identity can be achieved, outside that ascribed by class, education or occupation.

Different engines : how science drives fiction and fiction drives science by Mark Brake( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The symbiosis of science and science fiction shapes what we see, do and dream." "Since its emergence in the 17th century, science fiction (SF) has been a sustained, coherent and subversive check on the promises and pitfalls of science. In their turn, invention and discovery have forced fiction writers to confront the nature and limits of reality. Different Engines is the first trade book to explore how this fascinating symbiosis shapes what we see, do and dream." "From Johannes Kepler's Somnium to Arthur C. Clarke's 2001, science fiction has emerged as a mode of thinking complementary to the scientific method, argue Professor Mark-Brake and Reverend Neil Hook SF's field of interest is the gap between the new worlds uncovered by experimentation and exploration and the fantastic worlds of the imagination. Its proponents find drama in the tension between the familiar and the unfamiliar. Its readers, many of them scientists and politicians, find inspiration in the contrast between the ordinary and the extraordinary. Brake and Hook's Different Engines is a unique, provocative and compelling account of science fiction as the arbiter of progress."--Jacket
