When Chicago private investigator Anni Koskinen takes on a new client, she finds herself working on an impossible case. After spending twenty years in prison, a black man convicted in a notorious rape case has had his sentence overturned. The victim wants to know who was really responsible for the crime that scarred her life. But even if Anni can find out who committed the brutal crime decades ago, a conviction will be impossible---unless the rapist has struck again. The resourceful victim has uncovered evidence indicating that a serial rapist may still be at work, attacking women with ferocious anger. But as Anni digs deeper, the politically ambitious state's attorney who prosecuted the original rape case insists that the conviction was solid. He believes there was no miscarriage of justice---other than that a violent felon has been released on a technicality. As Anni's cold case heats up, her friend Dugan, a CPD detective, is involved in a heater case of his own. An undocumented Mexican gang member has been arrested for the murder of a missing woman, and his uncertain fate has gripped the city and fueled anti-immigrant sentiment. As both investigations unfold, the impact of racial prejudice radiates cracks through the criminal justice system, and it is through those cracks that Anni must try to glimpse the truth.

Julio Ricci, one of Uruguay's most important and prolific writers, lives in the capital of Montevideo where, until his recent retirement, he taught linguistics. This collection, his first volume of work published in English, includes stories from several of his books. His stories portray characters, often social outcasts and misfits, who live at the edges of society in the Uruguayan capital, where the absurd is often a way of life. Ricci views this absurdity with a mixture of black humour and delight.

The problems and special needs of black women are still given inadequate attention in social science analysis. Too often black women are subsumed under the category of "blacks" or "women," with little consideration for their unique needs. This volume focuses on black women as a special group. It includes chapters on employment, educational attainment, and job training programs which originated as papers given at a symposium on the economic status of black women, co-sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and The Review of Black Political Economy.

Within educational research, the pipeline metaphor is often used to describe how students move through the primary, secondary, and postsecondary levels of educ. The pipeline for Latina/o students, however, does now allow this group of students to flow smoothly through the various levels of educ. and yield a fairly proportionate number of high school and postsecondary grad. For ex., out of every 100 Latina elementary students in the U.S., 54 will graduate from high school; from these, 11 will graduate from college, 4 will graduate from grad. or professional school, and less than 1 will receive a doctorate. This report discusses this problem as well as areas of concern that must be addressed if current educ. outcomes for Latina/o students are to improve. Illus.

Psychodynamic theory and practice are often misunderstood as appropriate only for the worried well or for those whose problems are minimal or routine. Nothing could be further from the truth. This book shows how psychodynamically informed, clinically based social care is essential to working with individuals whose problems are both psychological and social. Each chapter addresses populations struggling with structural inequities, such as racism, classism, and discrimination based on immigrant status, language differences, disability, and sexual orientation. The authors explain how to provide psychodynamically informed assessment and practice when working with those suffering from mental illness, addiction, homelessness, and cognitive, visual, or auditory impairments, as well as people in prisons, in orphanages, and on child welfare. The volume supports the idea that becoming aware of ourselves helps us understand ourselves: a key approach for helping clients contain and name their feelings, deal with desire and conflict, achieve self-regulation and self-esteem, and alter attachment styles toward greater agency and empowerment. Yet autonomy and empowerment are not birthrights; they are capacities that must be fostered under optimal clinical conditions. This collection uses concepts derived from drive theory, ego psychology, object relations, trauma theory, attachment theory, self psychology, relational theories, and intersubjectivity in clinical work with vulnerable and oppressed populations. Contributors are experienced practitioners whose work with vulnerable populations has enabled them to elicit and find common humanity with their clients. The authors consistently convey respect for the considerable strength and resilience of the populations with whom they work. Emphasizing both the inner and social structural lives of client and clinician and their interacting social identities, this anthology uniquely realizes the complexity of clinical practice with diverse populations.

Four-year-old Nathan Fisher disappears from the bank of a rocky creek. Did he drown or was he taken? The search for the missing boy grips the nation. A decade later, young teen Adam Vander has grown tall enough, strong enough, to escape his abusive father. Emerging from behind the locked door of their rambling suburban home, Adam steps into a world he knows little of. In the days that follow, with the charismatic and streetwise Billy as his guide, Adam begins to experience all that he's missed out on. And he begins to understand that he has survived something extraordinary. As the bond between the boys grows, questions begin to surface. Who is Adam really? Why was he kept so hidden? Was it just luck that Billy found him, or an unsettling kind of fate? Unearthing the shocking truth of Adam's identity will change the lives of many and put at risk a cast of flawed, desperate people. It's a treacherous climb from the darkness. For one boy to make it, the other might have to fall through the cracks.

We are a white South African family who left the country due to the political climate and due to the fact that South Africa has the highest rape statistics in the world. We want our children to grow up in a society where race is not the deciding factor when it comes to education and jobs. We witnessed and experienced crime and were afraid that it was just a matter of time before our children would fall victim as well.
