The Russian Federation has one of the largest prison populations in the world. Women in particular are profoundly affected by the imprisonment of a family member. Families and Punishment in Russia details the experiences of these women-be they wives, mothers, girlfriends, daughters-who, as relatives of Russia's three-quarters of a million prisoners, are the "invisible victims" of the country's harsh penal policy. A pioneering work that offers a unique lens through which various aspects of life in twenty-first century Russia can be observed: the workings of criminal sub-cultures; societal attitudes to parenthood, marriage and marital fidelity; young women's quests for a husband; nostalgia for the Soviet period; state strategies towards dealing with political opponents; and the social construction of gender roles.

Austerity has reconfigured and scaled back the governance and delivery of public services and negatively affected society’s most vulnerable groups. This book opens up the closed world of English prisons to examine its impact on prison health governance and healthcare delivery. It argues that austerity has been a decade-long, large-scale political experiment that has caused debt to balloon, eroded the prison health system and perpetuated a cycle of punishment resulting in sicker prisoners. In short, austerity has violated prisoners’ human rights. Drawing on interviews and data from existing longitudinal and economic analyses, the book demonstrates how austerity has resulted in high rates of recidivism, diminished what remains of the welfare state, and increased inequality and punitiveness. Despite a decade of failure, there is a marked political reluctance to dispense with austerity, and the governmental juggernaut continues to produce the same result. As the spectre of recession increases, caused in part by Brexit and COVID-19, these failures are ever more perilous. This book blends the interdisciplinary perspectives of criminology, public health, sociology, law, social policy, politics, and economics to enable greater understanding of the impact of austerity on health governance, prison healthcare, the prison workforce, and prisoners’ health and safety. It challenges current policy, practice and thinking, and is a must read for anyone who wants to reflect on how the political economic structure can affect the governance and delivery of healthcare services in marginalised settings, beyond prisons, and indeed beyond England.

Built on the premise that all public policy is ultimately grounded in the philosophy of governance, Christopher A. Simon's second edition continues to approach policy by combining normative and empirical perspectives. This deeply revised second edition continues to expose students to the basis of preferences, policy-making processes, policy history, and current policy decisions and outcomes. Chapters conclude with a case studies engaging students in the application of their theoretical knowledge to the real world, and encouraging them to be informed and active citizens. Key Features: Alternate tables of content are included to provide professors and students with flexible, easy-to-implement options for approaching and assigning public policy. Case studies provide real-world examples that concretely illustrate theoretical concepts. End-of-Chapter questions reinforce key concepts and encourage students to think critically about the chapter topics. Each chapter ends with a two-part summary that offers a review of the major chapter concepts ("Lessons Learned") and puts them in context ("The Big Picture").
