Books, Articles, and Merchandise

The inaugural edition of Christus Cultura: The Journal of Christianity in the Social Sciences was published in April 2019, and an article of mine was published in the inaugural edition! The title of my article is ” Labeling Theories and Sex Offender Registries: The 21st Century Scarlet Letter.”

I recently published a collection of e-books via Amazon’s “Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).” Each is part of a collection of graduate level academic research that I have completed during my Master’s and Ph.D. coursework in criminal justice and forensic psychology. All are currently available on Amazon’s website: http://www.amazon.com, and several reading options are available. If you have an active membership in Amazon’s “Kindle Unlimited,” you can read each of these for free. Each of these books are also available for purchase as an e-book for a modest price. I also have an “author” page on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/author/tarimcneil

Here are the titles, as well as a brief description, of each e-book:
