A missing girl. Gun toting gangsters. Corrupt coppers. It's all in a day's work for Jerome Cardinal, Sydney's newest private investigator. When Amy Davenport is reported missing by her mother, Cardinal takes the job expecting to follow a truant teenager. As he tracks her down, he is catapulted down one girl's dangerous descent into the seedy underbelly of Sydney's drug scene and violent gangland. Crossing paths with drug addled fiends and trigger happy gangsters, as well as questionable police, Cardinal has to rely on his street smarts, fearlessness and a sense of humour to get to the bottom of this mystery in one piece. The Jerome Cardinal private investigator series A former federal police officer, Jerome Cardinal is toiling away in the sometime exciting but often dull world of private investigations. With a laid back optimism, he's too young to be crusty and jaded, and lives for the opportunity to solve that next challenging case. Living on his wits since he left the force, he squats at the luxurious house of a best friend while he runs his fledging PI business in a pokey Surry Hills studio. The latest addition to the Australian crime and mystery thriller series, fans of Cliff Hardy and Jack Irish will appreciate Jerome Cardinal as the newest upstart in the Australian private detective fiction world.

Every year, in the United States and the third world combined, 13.3 million boys and 2 million girls are circumcised. Whether because of perceived medical, cultural, or religious necessity, most of these parents feel they have no alternative but to allow their children to undergo this surgery. Sparking intense debate, the circumcision of children is a highly controversial and complex phenomenon that touches a variety of sociological areas, such as religious beliefs, identity issues, medical conceptualizations, fear, and superstition. The contributors to this volume comprise an international panel of experts in the fields of medicine, psychology, law, ethics, sociology, anthropology, history, theology, and politics. In 18 chapters they discuss the history of circumcision; document the physical and psychological consequences of circumcision; present the latest anatomical discoveries about the male prepuce; analyze the role of circumcision in various traditions; reveal the medical industry's investment in the practice; describe current legislative efforts to protect children from circumcision; and outline effective, culturally sensitive methods that are being implemented today to safeguard the human rights of at-risk children.
For its insights into this troubling aspect of culture, Understanding Circumcision: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to a Multi-Dimensional Problem is a critically important contribution to the growing body of literature on this subject.
