"Where did you get those eyes so blue?" "Out of the sky as I came through." Christmas week a good many years ago. Not an "old-fashioned" Christmas this year, for there was no snow or ice; the sky was clear and the air pure, but yet without the sharp, bracing clearness and purity that Master Jack Frost brings when he comes to see us in one of his nice, bright, sunny humours. For he has humours as well as other people-not only is he fickle in the extreme, but even black sometimes, and he is then, I can assure you, a most disagreeable visitor. But this Christmas time he had taken it into his head not to come at all, and the world looked rather reproachful and disconcerted. The poor, bare December world-it misses its snow garment, so graciously hiding all imperfections revealed by the absence of green grass and fluttering leaves; it misses, too, its winter jewels of icicles and hoar frost. Poor old world! What a great many Decembers you have jogged through; no wonder you begin to feel that you need a little dressing up and adorning, like a beauty no longer as young as she has been. Yet ever-young world, too! Who, that gazes at March's daffodils and sweet April's primroses, can believe that the world is growing old? Sometimes one could almost wish that it would leave off being so exquisitely, so heartlessly young. For the daffodils nod their golden heads, the primroses smile up through their leafy nests-year after year, they never fail us. But the children that loved them so; the little feet that trotted so eagerly down the lanes, the tiny hands that gathered the flower-treasures with such delight-where are they all? Men and women, some in far-off lands, perhaps; or too wearied by cares and sorrows to look for the spring flowers of long ago. And some-the sweetest of all, these seem-farther away still, and yet surely nearer? in the happier land, whose flowers our fancy tries in vain to picture.


Crime, Risk And Excitement

Crime, Risk and Excitement examines the changing ways in which risk-taking and excitement have appeared as motives for crime, and as problems for both criminology and government. The rise of consumer society has produced major shifts in risk-taking. The 19th century ushered in a culture of risk avoidance for the masses: prudence and self denial were central, while excitement was a problem. Many traditional working class pleasures and a ~excitementsa (TM) - notably gambling, drinking and associated activities - came to be criminalised or condemned in the name of moral order. By the 20th century, however, the rise of an urban mass consumer culture began to challenge this, gradually making excitement a valued part of the good life for more than a tiny elite. As such, tensions have emerged, particularly as the easing of moral restraints has created new opportunities for risk-taking. Some of this has been normalised. Other innovations -such as street racing, bike gangs, rave parties and binge drinking - have been reframed as subterranean expressions of mainstream pleasures. At the same time, moreover, cultural diversification and gender equalisation have created new ways in which risk taking can be imagined and performed. In Crime, Risk and Excitement, Pat O'Malley explores these shifts, along with the developments in criminology that have attempted to come to grips with them. Risk, he concludes, has to become the centre of a new politics: as a source of excitement and pleasure, and so as an expression of new a ~freedomsa (TM), rather than new pathologies.
