  • ‘Persons of versatility’: private security officers and private policing in residential estates in Hong Kong

    This study is the result of exploratory research on the daily lives and experiences of private security officers working in Hong Kong housing estates. As the first qualitative investigation of its kind, it examined two case studies of separate estates through the lens of Nodal Governance, which involved interviews with security practitioners and end-users, work practice observations, and documentary analysis. Security officers were found to ‘wear many hats’. Apart from crime prevention, the ...

    'Celebrities of the future’:fame and notability in Henry James’s Roderick Hudson and the American

    Focusing on two of Henry James’s earliest novels, Roderick Hudson (1875) and The American (1877), this essay explores the ways in which James’s initial formulation of his signature ‘international theme’ intersects with nineteenth-century discourses on fame. Roderick Hudson positions the eponymous American sculptor as a lion and notable in Europe, and then shows his fatal attempts to transcend the objectification and commodification that accompany fame. In The American the protagonist, Christo...

    Developing a more effective framework for the investigative interviewing of suspected sex offenders

    Although some research has suggested that the use of a more humane, or empathic, interviewing style with suspected sex offenders is likely to bring about more admissions (Holmberg & Christianson, 2002; Kebbell, Hurran & Mazzerole, 2006; see also Kassin & Gudjonsson, 2004 for a review), much of this research has been conducted with offenders long after they had been interviewed by the police.

    The influence of dislocation climb on the mechanical behavior of polycrystals and grain size effect at elevated temperature

    The mechanical behavior of a polycrystalline aluminum in tension was modeled using a climb-assisted discrete dislocation dynamics (DDD) technique. Special focus was on how dislocation climb influences the flow stress of the polycrystalline aluminum with regard to selected grain sizes at elevated temperature. A periodical representative cell (PRC) consisting of given number of grains was used in the simulations. Results showed that, at the high temperature considered, dislocation climb plays a...
