La Ley Orgánica General Penitenciaria tiene un sitio importante en la historia legislativa española. Fue la primera Ley que, con el carácter de orgánica, aprobaron las Cortes tras la Constitución de 1978, y que ha conseguido pervivir más de treinta años, sin grandes cambios, manteniendo los principios que la hicieron ser aclamada por nuestros parlamentarios, permitiendo que el derecho, en España, no se detuviera en la puerta de las prisiones. Su devenir no ha sido fácil, pues fijó unas metas difíciles para su época y que, incluso a día de hoy, algunas aún están por alcanzarse, si bien no es menos cierto, e injusto sería no reconocerlo, ha permitido que España cuente con uno de los mejores sistemas penitenciarios en el panorama internacional, referente a escala mundial. En este camino ha resultado determinante la labor del Tribunal Constitucional, que ha permitido conjugar la limitación de derechos inherente a la privación de libertad con la depuración de prácticas y situaciones que se sitúan en esa franja de incertidumbre entre lo que es constitucionalmente admisible y lo que no lo es. Esta obra pretende recopilar los textos más importantes que conforman el derecho penitenciario español vigente, con el análisis e interpretación que de su articulado han hecho el Tribunal Constitucional y el Tribunal Supremo, a fin de que investigadores en la materia penitenciaria, profesionales del ramo y estudiantes puedan acercarse a su conocimiento, encontrando en ella una herramienta útil de consulta. En total 8 normas, a las que se han sumado seis apéndices que contienen una tabla de normativa en vigor (se relacionan más de 150 normas), los textos internacionales más importantes, la jurisprudencia del Tribunal Constitucional y del Tribunal de Conflictos, las circulares e instrucciones de la Administración Penitenciaria más importantes y las circulares, instrucciones y consultas de la Fiscalía General del Estado con relevancia penitenciaria. Concluye el trabajo con un índice analítico que facilita su consulta.

Representing a new wave of legal history that has emerged in recent years, Crime and Punishment in Latin America presents unique essays about the relationship between ordinary people and the law. While applying disparate methodological, theoretical, and disciplinary traditions, the contributors share the conviction that law and legal phenomena are crucial elements in the formation and functioning of modern Latin American societies. Influenced by various theoretical developments, including the rise of cultural, subaltern, and postcolonial studies, the new brand of legal history found in this volume rejects assumptions about the normativity of elite privilege and the law's straightforward application of "justice." While disassociating law from a strict and reductionist legalist approach, the volume showcases discussions of a range of cultures by scholars from both North and Latin America who consider, among other topics, the role of law in mediating social conflict and participating in state building. Treating law as an ambiguous and malleable realm of struggle, the contributors demonstrate that law not only produces and reformulates culture but shapes and is shaped by larger processes of political, social, economic, and cultural change. Other topics discussed include the need for more studies on women's shifting legal status and the ways in which legal systems in England, Western Europe, and the United States compares to those in Latin American countries. This volume will appeal to scholars in Latin American studies and to those interested in the social and cultural history of law. Contributors. Carlos Aguirre, Dain Borges, Lila Caimari, Arlene J.

Police Culture

Police culture has for over half a century attracted interest from academics, students, policy-makers, police institutions and the general public. However, the literature of this area has proven to be diverse, sprawling and prone to contradiction which has led to an enthralling yet intricate body of knowledge that, whilst continuing to provoke interest and debate, has largely escaped any wider commentary. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the area of police culture primarily by situating it in the context of the literature of organisational culture. From this starting point, the idea of police culture is developed as an occupationally-situated response to the uniqueness of the police role and one in which our understanding is, at times, hindered by the challenges of definitional, operational and analytical concerns. The book then charts the development of our understanding of the concept, through traditional explanations to the contemporary, highlighting in turn the tensions that exist between the elements of continuity in the police world and those of change. Police culture: themes and concepts draws on research from the 1950s to the 21st century from the UK, USA and elsewhere to show how the historical trajectory of police work from its early origins through to the late modern present have imbued it with a complexity that is undermined by deterministic explanations that seek to simplify the social world of the police officer. This book will be of interest to academics and students studying the sociology of policing as well as criminology.

The Economics Regulation And Systemic Risk Of Insurance Markets

Despite the importance of insurance in enabling individual and collective social, economic, and financial activities, discussions about the macro-economic role and risks of insurance markets are surprisingly limited. The core motivation for publishing this book is to bring together academics, regulators, and industry experts to provide a multifaceted array of research and perspectives on insurance, its role and functioning, and the potential systemic risk it could create. The first part discusses the macro-economic role of insurance and how insurance is different from banking and general finance. Understanding the differences between the balance sheets of insurers and other financial intermediaries is essential to understand the potential differences in risk nature and differences in optimal regulation. The second part of the book focuses on the risks of the insurance sector and the potential for systemic risk. The various chapters discuss the risks both on the asset and liability sides of insurers' balance sheets. The third part of the book covers the impact of regulation on insurance companies. Existing regulation is often complex and has a large impact on insurance companies' decision-making and functioning. The chapters also illustrate the unintended consequences of various forms of regulation. The book concludes with a summary of a survey that has been conducted in collaboration with McKinsey, where insurance executives have been asked about the risks and regulation in the insurance sector. The survey provides guidance for future research on insurance markets.

Prillaman fills a significant gap in the literature on democratic consolidation and challenges the conventional wisdom about Latin American judicial reform. He has developed a coherent list of indicators to monitor whether judiciaries are improving or decaying over time, applied that framework to contemporary case studies, and concluded that prospects for democracy are bleaker than traditionally assumed.
