Featured Resource List

Sandra Simkins. When kids get arrested : what every adult should know. Rutgers University Press, c2009. KF9779.S54 2009


This book discusses one of the lesser known facts about the juvenile system. With millions of children arrested across the country every year, most adults do not know is that the juvenile justice system has become much more punitive in the last fifteen years. No longer is juvenile court a place where regardless of what happens you get a clean slate when you turn eighteen. Today almost every adjudication of delinquency is accompanied by adult-style fingerprinting, prior record score points, and DNA tests that can stay in a state repository for years. For every stage of the justice system, from arrest to expungement, When Kids Get Arrested gives “top tips” to help adults make the best choices to protect children from long-term negative consequences.



Helen Nissenbaum. Privacy in context : technology, policy, and the integrity of social life. Stanford Law Books, c2010.

KF1262.N57 2010

This book discusses privacy, which is one of the most urgent issues associated with information technology and digital media. This book claims that what people really care about when they complain and protest that privacy has been violated is not the act of sharing information itself—most people understand that this is crucial to social life —but the inappropriate, improper sharing of information. Arguing that privacy concerns should not be limited solely to concern about control over personal information, the authors counters that information ought to be distributed and protected according to norms governing distinct social contexts—whether it be workplace, health care, schools, or among family and friends. She warns that basic distinctions between public and private, informing many current privacy policies, in fact obscure more than they clarify. In truth, contemporary information systems should alarm us only when they function without regard for social norms and values, and thereby weaken the fabric of social life.
