Ausgehend von den unterschiedlichen Entwicklungslinien parlamentarischer Öffentlichkeit in Großbritannien und Deutschland analysiert die Untersuchung "Brennpunkt Plenum" typische Muster der Parlamentsberichterstattung im Fernsehen. Neben der unterschiedlichen Rolle von Unterhaus und Bundestag im politischen Prozess wird die Struktur der Fernsehsysteme und die politische Kultur berücksichtigt, denn die Differenz in der televisuellen Präsentation von britischem "House of Commons" und Deutschem Bundestag hängt entscheidend von den in der politischen Kultur gespeicherten und im Parlamentarismus praktizierten Kulturmustern ab. Parlamente sind nicht nur abstrakte oder imaginierte Institutionen innerhalb des Geflechts politischer Systeme, sondern ausdifferenzierte Symbolgefüge, in denen die Körperlichkeit von Politik in ihrer zeit-räumlichen Dimension inszeniert wird. Insbesondere durch die Fernsehpräsenz von Bundestag und Unterhaus werden Facetten der politisch-kulturell geformten Symbolik demokratischer Herrschaft sichtbar - ob nun parlamentarischer Streit oder eine über die Fraktionen hinausreichende Konsensfindung. Neben politiktheoretischen Überlegungen, die die zunehmende Televisualisierung von Politik zum Gegenstand haben, beinhaltet die empirisch aufwändige Studie einen Fundus an Analysen der Nachrichten-, Magazin- und Live-Berichterstattung und schließt sowohl die britischen Unterhauswahlen von 1997 als auch die Bundestagswahl von 1998 mit ein.

Key Topics is a short, easy-to-read text that provides basic information about twelve key topics in public health, such as diabetes, cancer, smoking and teenage pregnancy, and how prevention and health promotion should be tackled at community and one-to-one levels. The twelve topics are the 'must-dos' of public health action. They have been selected because they are those addressed in current national public health strategies such as Saving Lives: our healthier nation , and comparable strategies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Many are the subject of National Service Frameworks and other national policies and plans; they are often accompanied by targets which health workers are expected to meet. Accessible and useful, in clear plain English. Provides a foundation for further study, planning a work programme, or planning a strategy to meet targets. Practical focus: on health inequalities and how to tackle them, and on help for practitioners who work at a community and one-to-one level. Explicit links to national current public health policy and targets. Reflects recommendations based on best practice and evidence of effectiveness. Focuses on a topic framework (except for the last two chapters) in contrast to other frameworks for health promotion and public health. Attractive layout making full use of bullet points and boxes. Simple line diagrams or tables to illustrate each chapter.

Deviant Knowledge

In this important and original book, Reece Walters examines the politics of criminology and the ways in which criminological knowledge is generated. It includes an overview of the politics and practice of conducting criminological research (drawing upon material from Britain, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the USA), and the ways that regulatory and governing authorities set research agendas, manipulate the processes and production of knowledge and silence or suppress critical voices through various techniques of neutralisation. The book argues for 'knowledges of resistance' - a position that promotes critique, challenges concepts of power and social order, wrestles with notions of truth and adheres to intellectual autonomy and independence. It provides invaluable insights into the relationship between the criminological researcher, public officials and corporate representatives. Drawing upon a wide range of interviews with academics and administrators from government and business, the book provides rare insights into the ways that knowledge about crime and criminal justice is produced and consumed, revealing why certain topics of criminological enquiry are rarely funded and why others receive ongoing political and governmental support. The book will be essential reading for anybody interested in the development of criminological theory and research, and the context and influences that shape it.
