1. Morris, Robert G.. "By Any Means Necessary: Using Alternative Data Gathering and Analysis Strategies to Explore America’s Fastest Growing Crime – IDENTITY THEFT" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Nov 01, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <>

Abstract: This exploratory study addresses the reality of identity theft offenders and offenses stemming from reports delivered by the news media at the national level. Currently, empirical inquiry toward this multifaceted crime is sparse due to the difficulty of gathering data on identity theft offenders in general as many different crimes fall under the umbrella of identity theft. This problem has limited the use of official statistics for inquiry of identity theft offenders. A content analysis of newspaper articles that report on particular identity theft incidents serve as data for this study. Manifest data was collected on each incident and offender, or group of offenders, in order to establish a solid database that consists entirely of identity theft offenders and their crimes; based on the macro level conceptualization of identity theft, rather than the many individual crimes that fall beneath. The messages and symbols, as reported by the news media, regarding identity theft offenses serve as a foundation for the development of exploratory theoretical themes of identity theft offending. Also addressed is a comparative analysis of reported sanctioning and recent policy initiatives. This research will hopefully set the pace for future inquiries to this important topic.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This essay will introduce a unique theoretical framework to explain how power and status may influence the process of meaning-making in interpersonal relationships. The characteristics of Necessary Convergence of Meaning [NCM] are presented along with the antecedent conditions and a-priori assumptions linked to this theoretical framework. The essay ends with five suppositions of this theory that may be tested empirically. The author argues that theory development is as important as theory testing in the social sciences, and contends that NCM has utility to generate additional knowledge about the role of power and connection in interpersonal communication.

Abstract: In the 1990s, a bloody and savage civil war racked the
failed-state of Sierra Leone. What turned the tide in 2000 was the
intervention of a robust and effective contingent of British troops
that helped stabilize the country and restore order. While their goals
were limited and
not open-ended, military intervention by the UK, not the performance of
UN peacekeepers, was the decisive factor in ending the violence in
Sierra Leone. In complex humanitarian emergencies, the
lack of security greatly hampers the ability of NGOs to fulfill their
missions. To succeed, NGOs operating in countries like Sierra Leone
must have the backing of credible military forces
such as those deployed by the British in Sierra Leone, or those
provided by Australia in the East Timor intervention of 1999. In both
of these interventions, UK and Australian troops were perceived by all
parties as reputable, professional, lethal, effective, and fair-minded.
Unfortunately, many UN peacekeeping forces often lack these crucial
prerequisities. The quality,
not just quantity, of peacekeepers deployed in humanitarian
emergencies, is the critical ingredient
that provides secure environments in which NGOs can perform their

5. Marin, Victor. and Valeriano, Brandon. "Steps to War and Qualitative Comparative Method: The Necessary and Sufficient Conditions of Interstate War" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISA's 49th ANNUAL CONVENTION, BRIDGING MULTIPLE DIVIDES, Hilton San Francisco, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, Mar 26, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <>

Abstract: The Steps to War theory (Vasquez 1993) suggests that war is brought on by a series of steps that increase hostility and the make then issues under contention more intractable. Power politics strategies, including coercion in the face of territorial disputes, rivalry or repeated crises, escalating bargaining demands, hardliners in power, alliances, and arms races, are all important steps to war. This paper will evaluate the steps to war research program using the qualitative comparative method. With this method, we can delineate the paths to war, rather than the steps to war. Territorial issues, rivalry, hardliners in power, and alliances are all probabilistic necessary conditions for interstate war.
