Book Review: Illicit Sex within the Justice System: Using Weak Power to Legislate, Regulate and Enforce Morality

We are happy to share news that Carmen M. Cusack’s book Illicit Sex within the Justice System: Using Weak Power to Legislate, Regulate and Enforce Morality has been reviewed in the 2018 issue of the Journal of Law and Social Deviance by Jessica T. Bracho. The full review is available open access here, and an indicative excerpt from the conclusion is below:

“Cusack’s book is not for the faint of heart or the close-minded. It is a book begging for change; change that is necessary to appreciate each other’s individuality without fear, for government to regain society’s trust, and for our moral compass to be reset. Cusack, so wisely, proposes interaction between the justice system’s members with authoritative power (e.g., officials and agents) and the civilian world to understand each other, identify, and come to terms with the new norm.”

Our May Book of the Month is The Medusa Gaze in Contemporary Women’s Fiction: Petrifying, Maternal and Redemptive by Gillian M. E. Alban.

The Greek monster Medusa is arguably the original stuff of nightmares – countless venomous snakes for hair and a gaze that turned all who looked at her to pure stone. Her legend lives on in fiction, poetry, film, and art. Yet as this book by Gillian M.E. Alban suggests, the figure of Medusa is one that helps reveal much about the contemporary desires and frustrations of women. Continue reading
