Stigma Revisited: Implications of the Mark
edited by Stacey Hannem and Chris Bruckert was reviewed in Blacklock's Reporter Issue No. 019.
"The animal kingdom enforces a hierarchy in which members deemed inferior are put in their place….Stigma Revisited
is an arresting account of this same sort of thing in human-kind, in which individuals are marginalized for the gratification of the rest of us. They are “risky” people, write the authors; the kind who “somehow threaten the social order” – foreigners, the homeless, the mentally ill, the morally weak. Stigma Revisited
is not an account of bullying or hurt feelings. It is the documentation of society’s need to peck away at “individuals who carry discreditable characteristics," explain editors Stacey Hannem and Chris Bruckert, both criminologists."

Life, Fish and Mangroves: Resource Governance in Coastal Cambodia
, by Melissa Marschke, was reviewed in Fauna & Flora International, Oryx
, 47(1), 153-155.
“Life, Fish and Mangroves
is a decade-long research endeavour by Marschke, showcasing her attempt to understand (1) how livelihoods shift, evolve and adapt in resource-dependent coastal communities in Cambodia, (2) the role of decentralized resource governance in such situations, and (3) the potential for multiple forms of governance in situations where decline of resources has severe livelihood implications. Such questions are clearly important in a context such as Cambodia, a country ranked 139 on the Human Development Index and where an estimated 75% of all protein consumed in rural areas comes from fish. I found the case study in Koh Sralao absorbing.”
