Although the subject of federally mandated Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) has been extensively debated, we actually do not know much about what takes place when they convene. The story of how IRBs work today is a story about their past as well as their present, and Behind Closed Doors is the first book to meld firsthand observations of IRB meetings with the history of how rules for the treatment of human subjects were formalized in the United States in the decades after World War II. Drawing on extensive archival sources, Laura Stark reconstructs the daily lives of scientists, lawyers, administrators, and research subjects working—and “warring”—on the campus of the National Institutes of Health, where they first wrote the rules for the treatment of human subjects. Stark argues that the model of group deliberation that gradually crystallized during this period reflected contemporary legal and medical conceptions of what it meant to be human, what political rights human subjects deserved, and which stakeholders were best suited to decide. She then explains how the historical contingencies that shaped rules for the treatment of human subjects in the postwar era guide decision making today—within hospitals, universities, health departments, and other institutions in the United States and across the globe. Meticulously researched and gracefully argued, Behind Closed Doors will be essential reading for sociologists and historians of science and medicine, as well as policy makers and IRB administrators..

As I drive along the streets of residential neighborhoods, looking at the dim lights from windows and seeping under the doors of homes, thoughts go through my mind regarding the type of things that occur behind closed doors. I think to myself, love, warmth, and family are what happen behind closed doors. I can picture a child sitting on her father’s knee after he has worked all day or maybe a single mom going over homework with her child, a young married couple sitting together after supper watching a movie or maybe a grandparent and their dog on the couch snuggled together for companionship. In my imagination, love is what goes on behind closed doors. But on the contrary, serious issues such as child abuse, incest, murder, and extramarital affairs happen behind closed doors. Grief, pain, sorrow, and heartaches cross all cultural barriers. Crisis happens!.

Behind Closed Doors - Maria Messina Preview:

Ten stories of impoverished Sicilian women in the early 20th century—“honed, polished, devastatingly direct . . . verismo at its unsentimental best” (Kirkus Reviews). The Sicilian writer Maria Messina’s captivating and brutal stories of the women of her home island are presented in a “lyrical and immediate” English translation by Elise Magistro (Publishers Weekly). Messina, who died in 1944, was the foremost female practitioner of verismo—the Italian literary realism pioneered by fellow Sicilian Giovanni Verga. Published between 1908 and 1928, Messina’s fiction represents the massive Sicilian immigration to America occurring at that time. The individuals in these stories are caught between the traditions they respect and a desire to move beyond them. Women are shuttered in their houses, virtual servants to their families, left behind while working men immigrate to the United States in fortune-seeking droves. A cultural album that captures the lives of peasant, working-class, and middle-class women, “Messina’s words will leave their mark. Their power makes them impossible to forget” (The Philadelphia Inquirer)..

Doors are fascinating, from the normal house door, hiding its multitude of secrets from the neighbours, through the elegant crafted doors of high flying businesses in tower blocks, where who knows what wheeling-dealing goes on, to the solid ancient lost-in-antiquity doors of churches behind which are hundreds of years of prayers and confessions and acts that are beyond the imagination of the average churchgoer. Doors that say KEEP OUT and doors that invite you in. Countless thousands of them - all have their own reasons to be there and their own secrets to conceal.

Four children by her father. Thirty years of horrific sexual abuse. Now updated with a new epilogue, detailing Katherine’s brave stand at the Royal Commission In March 2009, Joseph Fritzl was sentenced to life in jail for the systematic imprisonment, torture and rape of his daughter Elisabeth over 24 years, fathering seven children. The case shocked the world. But just a month before, the story of Australia’s own house of horrors was emerging in a Victorian country town. Under a blanket of suppression orders, a man in his late sixties was quietly arrested, charged – and later convicted – for the systematic rape, abuse and imprisonment of his only daughter, ‘Katherine’, which spanned decades. He fathered four of her children. Until recently, this shocking story had been buried under a complex legal web and Katherine’s insistence on silence so that she could rebuild her shattered life and protect her children. In Behind Closed Doors, Katherine speaks out and tells the story of how she survived – and how such degrading abuse went unnoticed for so long. Now, a new epilogue reveals the evidence Katherine gave at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, detailing the betrayal she felt at having been ignored for so long..

Behind Closed Doors - B. K. Chum Preview:

A riveting volume that paints politics and politicians in their true colours! A candid, hard-hitting and incisive work that throws light on crucial events in post-independence India – focusing on Punjab, Haryana and the Emergency – that had serious repercussions for the nation . . . As a seasoned journalist, B. K. Chum, who was a witness to history-in-the-making for more than six decades, has gone ‘behind closed doors’ to unearth secrets that politicians prefer to keep hidden. Beginning with Punjab in the early 1950s, when the Akalis demanded a separate Punjabi-speaking state, Chum recounts how the resultant turmoil led to the state being split on the basis of language. He moves on to describe the terrorism years, which had disastrous consequences for the nation. In the process, he reveals how an unholy nexus between the Congress leader Giani Zail Singh and the Sikh preacher-turned-extremist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, to counter the Akalis, led to indiscriminate killings and widespread bloodshed and also to the marginalization of the moderate Akalis such as Sant Harchand Singh Longowal, Parkash Singh Badal and Surjit Singh Barnala. Chum details how the extremists took control of the Golden Temple at Amritsar, necessitating Operation Bluestar, which resulted in the subsequent assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. He details the efforts made to root out terrorism and how it was eventually wiped out after Beant Singh, who took over as Punjab chief minister in February 1992, appointed K. P. S. Gill to tackle the menace. Coming to the sleazy politics of Haryana that gave the country’s political lexicon the term ‘Aya Ram Gaya Ram’, Chum traces the vicissitudes of this state in the political sphere right from its coming into existence in November 1966. He also provides fascinating sketches of some of the shrewdest politicians of the state such as Bansi Lal, Devi Lal, Bhajan Lal, Om Prakash Chautala and Bhupinder Singh Hooda. The author gives a round-up of the various developments in Punjab and Haryana in the 1990s and in the new millennium, which include, apart from the positive aspects, shady land deals, money-related scams, sex scandals and the pivotal role played by dynastic politics. The author’s behind-the-scenes revelations of the murky goings-on during the Emergency make for enthralling reading. He discloses how the main perpetrators of the Emergency – led by Sanjay Gandhi – were planning to take over the country and run it according to their whims and fancies..

For readers of Jodi Picoult, Heather Gudenkauf, and Elizabeth Flock comes a spellbinding tale of a girl gone missing—and the detective who will risk everything to find her. Detective Sergeant Andrea Lawrence is reluctant to take this emotionally charged case, but she can’t help herself. In a small British seaside community, a fourteen-year-old girl has vanished. Sophie Monroe hasn’t been seen since she fought—loudly, miserably—with her stepmother and father more than a week ago. But her frantic parents seem to be the only people concerned about Sophie’s disappearance. Everyone else just assumes that an angry teenager is acting out by hiding for a while. Did someone help Sophie run away, or abduct her? Either way, Detective Andee is certain something bad has happened. As Andee investigates, two men jump to the top of the list of suspects—but neither of them can be located. And the deeper Andee delves into Sophie’s life, the more she struggles to keep her own darkest fears at bay—because Andee knows all too well what happens when young girls are lost and never found.

Open Hearts, Closed Doors - Nicholas T. Pruitt Preview:

A history of mainline Protestant responses to immigrants and refugees during the twentieth century Open Hearts, Closed Doors uncovers the largely overlooked role that liberal Protestants played in fostering cultural diversity in America and pushing for new immigration laws during the forty years following the passage of the restrictive Immigration Act of 1924. These efforts resulted in the complete reshaping of the US cultural and religious landscape. During this period, mainline Protestants contributed to the national debate over immigration policy and joined the charge for immigration reform, advocating for a more diverse pool of newcomers. They were successful in their efforts, and in 1965 the quota system based on race and national origin was abolished. But their activism had unintended consequences, because the liberal immigration policies they supported helped to end over three centuries of white Protestant dominance in American society. Yet, Pruitt argues, in losing their cultural supremacy, mainline Protestants were able to reassess their mission. They rolled back more strident forms of xenophobia, substantively altering the face of mainline Protestantism and laying foundations for their responses to today’s immigration debates. More than just a historical portrait, this volume is a timely reminder of the power of religious influence in political matters..

Behind Closed Doors - Amanda Vickery Preview:

From the award-winning author of The Gentleman’s Daughter,a witty and academic illumination of daily domestic life in Georgian England. In this brilliant work, Amanda Vickery unlocks the homes of Georgian England to examine the lives of the people who lived there. Writing with her customary wit and verve, she introduces us to men and women from all walks of life: gentlewoman Anne Dormer in her stately Oxfordshire mansion, bachelor clerk and future novelist Anthony Trollope in his dreary London lodgings, genteel spinsters keeping up appearances in two rooms with yellow wallpaper, servants with only a locking box to call their own. Vickery makes ingenious use of upholsterer’s ledgers, burglary trials, and other unusual sources to reveal the roles of house and home in economic survival, social success, and political representation during the long eighteenth century. Through the spread of formal visiting, the proliferation of affordable ornamental furnishings, the commercial celebration of feminine artistry at home, and the currency of the language of taste, even modest homes turned into arenas of social campaign and exhibition. The basis of a 3-part TV series for BBC2. “Vickery is that rare thing, an…historian who writes like a novelist.”—Jane Schilling, Daily Mail “Comparison between Vickery and Jane Austen is irresistible…This book is almost too pleasurable, in that Vickery's style and delicious nosiness conceal some seriously weighty scholarship.”—Lisa Hilton, The Independent “If until now the Georgian home has been like a monochrome engraving, Vickery has made it three dimensional and vibrantly colored. Behind Closed Doors demonstrates that rigorous academic work can also be nosy, gossipy, and utterly engaging.”—Andrea Wulf, New York Times Book Review.

Closed Doors, Opportunities Lost - John Yinger Preview:

"Yinger writes as if four decades of protest and progressive legislation have barely altered the terrain upon which minority Americans struggle for equality. He's right....Yinger figures that housing discrimination costs black homebuyers $5.7 billion and Hispanic homebuyers $3.4 billion every three years." —Washington Monthly Nearly three decades after the passage of the Fair Housing Act, illegal housing discrimination against blacks and Hispanics remains rampant in the United States. Closed Doors, Opportunities Lost reports on a landmark nationwide investigation of real estate brokers, comparing their treatment of equally qualified white, black, and Hispanic customers. The study reveals pervasive discrimination. Real estate brokers showed 25 percent fewer homes to the minority buyers, and loan agencies were 60 percent more likely to turn down minority applicants. Realtors and lenders also charged higher prices to minority buyers, withheld or gave insufficient financial and application information, and showed them homes only in non-white neighborhoods. Residents of minority neighborhoods faced further difficulties trying to sell their homes or obtain housing credit and homeowner's insurance. Economist John Yinger provides a lucid account of these disturbing facts and shows how deeply housing discrimination can affect the living conditions, education, and employment of black and Hispanic Americans. Deprived of residential mobility and discouraged from owning their own homes, many minority families are unable to flee stagnant or unsafe neighborhoods. Two thirds of black and Hispanic children are concentrated in high-poverty schools where educational achievement is low and dropout rates are high. The employment possibilities for minority job-seekers are diminished by the ongoing movement of jobs from the cities to the suburbs, where housing discrimination is particularly severe. Altogether, these effects of housing discrimination create a vicious cycle—discrimination imposes social and economic barriers upon blacks and Hispanics, and the resulting hardships fuel the prejudice that leads whites to associate minorities with neighborhood deterioration. Closed Doors, Opportunities Lost provides a history of fair housing and fair lending enforcement and joins the intense debate about integration policy. Yinger proposes a bold, comprehensive program that aims not only to end discrimination in housing and mortgage markets but to reverse their long-term effects by stabilizing poorer neighborhoods and removing the stigma of integration. He urges reforms to strengthen the enforcement powers of HUD and other agencies, provide funding for poor and integrated schools, encourage local housing and race-counseling programs, and shift income tax breaks toward low-income homebuyers. Closed Doors, Opportunities Lost provides valuable insight into the causes, extent, and consequences of housing discrimination—undeniably one of America's most vexing and important problems. This volume speaks directly to the ongoing debate about the nature and causes of poverty and the underclass, civil rights policy, the Community Reinvestment Act, and the plight of our nation's cities..
