VSB15-003 The Routledge International Handbook of Violence Studies
  Walter S. DeKeseredy/ 9781138283442/ Price:¢G 165.00
 
Violence is a serious public health problem. The number of violent deaths tells only part of the story, and many more survive violence and are left with permanent physical and emotional scars. Violence also erodes communities by reducing productivity, decreasing property values, and disrupting social services. In recent years, scholars have broadened their definitions of violence beyond the realm of interpersonal harms such as murder, armed robbery, and male-to-female physical and sexual assaults in intimate relationships, to include behaviors often ignored by the criminal justice system, such as human rights violations, racism, psychological abuse, state terrorism, environmental violations, and war. Guided by this broader definition of violence, this handbook offers state of the art research in the field and brings together international experts to discuss empirical, theoretical, and policy issues.

  DeKeseredy, Walter S./ 9781138656192/ Price:¢G 175.00
 
Book Cover The main objective of the second edition of the Routledge Handbook of Critical Criminology is twofold: (1) to provide original chapters that cover contemporary critical criminological theoretical offerings generated over the past five years and (2) to provide chapters on important new substantive topics that are currently being studied and theorized by progressive criminologists. Special attention is devoted to new theoretical directions in the field, such as southern criminology, queer criminology, and green criminology. The diverse chapters cover not only cutting-edge theories, but also the variety of research methods used by leading scholars in the field and the rich data generated by their rigorous empirical work. In addition, some of the chapters suggest innovative and realistic short- and long-term policy proposals that are typically ignored by mainstream criminology. These progressive strategies address some of the most pressing social problems facing contemporary society today, which generate much pain and suffering for socially and economically disenfranchised people. The new edition of the Handbook is a major work in redefining areas within the context of international multidisciplinary critical research, and in highlighting emerging areas, such as human trafficking, Internet pornography and image-based sexual abuse. It is specifically designed to be a comprehensive resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and policymakers.

VSB15-002 The Routledge International Handbook on Fear of Crime
  Lee, Murray/ 9781138120334/ Price:¢G 165.00
 
Book Cover The Routledge International Handbook on Fear of Crime brings together original and international state of the art contributions of theoretical, empirical, policy-related scholarship on the intersection of perceptions of crime, victimisation, vulnerability and risk. This is timely as fear of crime has now been a focus of scholarly and policy interest for some fifty years and shows little sign of abating. Research on fear of crime is demonstrative of the inter-disciplinarity of criminology, drawing in the disciplines of sociology, psychology, political science, history, cultural studies, gender studies, planning and architecture, philosophy and human geography. This collection draws in many of these interdisciplinary themes. This collections also extends the boundaries of fear of crime research. It does this both methodologically and conceptually, but perhaps more importantly it moves us beyond some of the often repeated debates in this field to focus on novel topics from unique perspectives. The book begins by plotting the history of fear of crime¡¦s development, then moves on to investigate the methodological and theoretical debates that have ensued and the policy transfer that occurred across jurisdictions. Key elements in debates and research on fear of crime concerning gender, race and ethnicity are covered, as are contemporary themes in fear of crime research, such as regulation, security, risk and the fear of terrorism, the mapping of fear of crime and fear of crime beyond urban landscapes. The final sections of the book explore geographies of fear and future and unique directions for this research.

The objective of this handbook is to stimulate a ¡¥new¡¦ interdisciplinary take on the study of crime, to show how both forensic and criminological theories and knowledge can be combined to analyse crime problems and to open new methodological perspectives. It will be essential reading for students and researchers engaged with forensic science, criminology, criminal behaviour, criminal investigation, crime analysis and criminal justice.
   
VSB15 Routledge Handbook of Crime Science
  Richard Wortley/ 9780415826266/ Price:¢G 175.00
 
Crime science is precisely what it says it is: the application of science to the phenomenon of crime. This handbook, intended as a crime science manifesto, showcases the scope of the crime science field and provides the reader with an understanding of the assumptions, aspirations and methods of crime science, as well as the variety of topics that fall within its purview. Crime science provides a distinctive approach to understanding and dealing with crime: one that is outcome-oriented, evidence-based and that crosses boundaries between disciplines. The central mission of crime science is to find new ways to cut crime and increase security. Beginning by setting out the case for crime science, the editors examine the roots of crime science in environmental criminology and describe its key features. The book is then divided into two sections. The first section comprises chapters by disciplinary specialists about the contributions their sciences can make or have already made to crime science. The second section of the book comprises a series of exemplary case studies in crime science, showing a wide range of the kind of work that crime scientists do. The editors conclude by drawing on the preceding contributions, as well as germane areas of research, to offer a thoughtful consideration of future directions for crime science. This book is essential reading for social scientists and scientists alike and marks a new phase in the study of crime and its detection and prevention.

  Sam Scott/ 9781447322047/ Price:¢G 24.99
 
Labour exploitation is a highly topical though complex issue that has international resonance for those concerned with social justice and social welfare, but there is a lack of research available about it.

Mapping out a new sub-discipline, this innovative book aims to shift power from employers to workers to reduce levels of labour exploitation and work-based harm. It is relevant to academics from many fields as well as legislators, policy makers, politicians, employers, union officials, activists and consumers.

Demonising The Other: The criminalisation of morality
  Philip Whitehead/ 9781447343417/ Price:¢G 45.00
 
Book Cover Throughout history there has always been an ¡¥other¡¦, often based on culture, race, gender or class, that has been demonised by the majority. This attribution of negative features onto others affects everyone, but Whitehead challenges the idea that this is an inevitable fact of life. While looking at the historical criminalisation of the ¡¥other¡¦ and the subsequent modernising transformations in criminal justice and penal policy, such as ¡¥Big Society¡¦, Whitehead also questions if this is the most effective way to dismantle the conditions of existence responsible for ¡¥othering¡¦. This important book not only looks for the origin of the ¡¥other¡¦ but also offers insights for a resolution that benefits society as a whole rather than just the powerful few.
   
Official Secrets: Child sex abuse from Cleveland to Savile
  Beatrix Campbell/ 9781447341147/ Price:¢G 12.99
 
Three decades ago doctors in Cleveland, a county in the north-East of England, identified sexual abuse in 121 girls and boys. Their average age was eight. Official Secrets reveals that the enquiry that followed was a cover-up. Confidential documents and correspondence in the National Archive prove that the government knew that most diagnoses were believed to be correct, but ministers withheld the explosive evidence. Parliament and the people were led to believe that there had been a scandal and that scores of children had been wrongly seized from innocent parents. Doctors were discouraged and social workers disempowered - a legacy that leads all the way to the current Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. The response to Cleveland controversy defined an era of scepticism and blame, and not the protection of children.
   
Regulating police detention: Voices from behind closed doors
  John Kendall/ 9781447343516/ Price:¢G 45.00
 
Book Cover When suspects are arrested, they spend their time in police custody largely in isolation and out of public view. These custody blocks are police territory, and public controversies about what happens there often only arise when a detainee dies. Custody visitors are volunteers who make what are supposed to be random and unannounced visits to police custody blocks to check on the welfare of detainees. However, there is a fundamental power imbalance between the police and these visitors, which calls the independence and effectiveness of custody visiting into question. Investigating this largely unexplored part of the criminal justice system, this timely book includes the voices of the detainees who have a unique insight into the scheme. It offers detailed proposals for radically reforming custody visiting to make it an effective regulator of police behaviour, with an explanation of the political context that could make that a reality.
   
The Economic Geographies of Organized Crime.
  Tim Hall/ 9781462535194/ Price:US$ 35.00

This incisive, innovative book examines the spatial dimensions of hidden economic practices and asks how organized crime can be understood empirically and conceptually through a geographical lens. Going beyond stereotypes about gangsters, the book explores the role of spatially distant corporate, state, and criminal actors in such activities as trafficking and smuggling of drugs, people, and goods; counterfeiting; cybercrime; corruption; money laundering; financing of terrorist groups; and environmental crime. It suggests ways that a geographical analysis can contribute to improving policies and practices to curb organized crime at the regional, national, and global levels.

Prison Suicide: What Happens Afterwards?
  Philippa Tomczak/ 9781447347897/ Price:¢G 45.00
 
Book Cover Although prison suicide is a global problem, there is little knowledge about the investigations occurring after prison suicides. Addressing this gap, this book provides the first detailed case study of the investigations that follow prison suicides: using England and Wales. Despite the large range of institutions that monitor English and Welsh prisons, suicides reached a record high in 2016, with the rate having doubled since 2012. These deaths represent the sharp end of a continuum of suffering, self-harm, despair and distress within prisons, which affects prisoners, their families and prison staff. This book details and critiques the lengthy and expensive police, ombudsman and coroner investigations that follow prison suicides. Drawing on extensive document analysis, including analysis of over 100 Prison and Probation Ombudsman fatal incident investigations, and original semi-structured interviews with stakeholders undertaken between 2016-2017, this book provides a novel analysis of prison oversight.
   
Revisiting the 'Ideal Victim': Developments in Critical Victimology

Book Cover Each chapter celebrates and commemorates his work by analysing, evaluating and critiquing the current nature and impact of victim identity, experience, policy and practice. The collection expands the focus and remit of ¡¥victim studies¡¦, addressing key themes around race, gender, faith, ability and age while encompassing new and diverse issues. Examples include sex workers as victims of hate crimes, victims¡¦ experiences of online fraud, and recognising historic child sexual abuse victims in Ireland.

The Right Amount of Panic: How Women Trade Freedom For Safety
  F. Vera-Gray/ 9781447342298/ Price:¢G 14.99
 
Book Cover Have you ever thought about how much energy goes into avoiding sexual violence? The work that goes into feeling safe goes largely unnoticed by the women doing it and by the wider world, and yet women and girls are the first to be blamed the inevitable times when it fails. We need to change the story on rape prevention and ¡¥well-meaning¡¦ safety advice, because this makes it harder for women and girls to speak out, and hides the amount of work they are already doing trying to decipher ¡¥the right amount of panic¡¦. With real-life accounts of women¡¦s experiences, and based on the author¡¦s original research on the impact of sexual harassment in public, this book challenges victim-blaming and highlights the need to show women as capable, powerful and skilful in their everyday resistance to harassment and sexual violence.
   
Gender-Based Violence in University Communities: Policy, Prevention and Educational Interventions in Britain
  Sundari Anitha/ 9781447336594/ Price:¢G 28.99
 
Book Cover Until recently, higher education in the UK has largely failed to recognise gender-based violence (GBV) on campus, but following the UK government task force set up in 2015, universities are becoming more aware of the issue. And recent cases in the media about the sexualised abuse of power in institutions such as universities, Parliament and Hollywood highlight the prevalence and damaging impact of GBV. In this book, academics and practitioners provide the first in-depth overview of research and practice in GBV in universities. They set out the international context of ideologies, politics and institutional structures that underlie responses to GBV in elsewhere in Europe, in the US, and in Australia, and consider the implications of implementing related policy and practice. Presenting examples of innovative British approaches to engagement with the issue, the book also considers UK, EU and UN legislation to give an international perspective, making it of direct use to discussions of ¡¥what works¡¦ in preventing GBV.

A Handbook of Food Crime: Immoral and Illegal Practices in the Food Industry and What to Do About Them
  Allison Gray/ 9781447336013/ Price:¢G 85.00
 
Book Cover Food today is over-corporatized and under-regulated. It is involved in many immoral, harmful, and illegal practices along production, distribution, and consumption systems. These problematic conditions have significant consequences on public health and well-being, nonhuman animals, and the environment, often simultaneously. In this insightful book, Gray and Hinch explore the phenomenon of food crime. Through discussions of food safety, food fraud, food insecurity, agricultural labour, livestock welfare, genetically modified foods, food sustainability, food waste, food policy, and food democracy, they problematize current food systems and criticize their underlying ideologies. Bringing together the best contemporary research in this area, they argue for the importance of thinking criminologically about food and propose radical solutions to the realities of unjust food systems.

Femicide across Europe: Theory, Research and Prevention
  Shalva Weil/ 9781447347132/ Price:¢G 12.99
 
Book Cover Femicide, the killing of women and girls because of their gender, was until recently included in the category ¡¥homicide¡¦, obscuring the special features of this social and gendered phenomenon. However, the majority of murders of women are perpetrated by men whom they know from family ties and are the result of intimate partner violence or so-called 'honour' killings. This book is the first one on femicide in Europe and presents the findings of a four-year project discussing various aspects of femicide. Written by leading international scholars with an interdiscplinary perspective, it looks at the prevention programmes and comparative quantitative and qualitative data collection, as well as the impact of culture. It proposes the establishment of an European Observatory on Femicide as a new direction for the future, showing the benefits of cross-national collaboration, united to prevent the murder of women and girls.

VSB15-002 The Routledge International Handbook of Life-Course Criminology
  Blokland, Arjan/ 9781138813663/ Price:¢G 185.00
 
Book Cover Since its introduction in the latter half of the 1980s, the meticulous study of distinct criminal career dimensions, like onset, frequency, and crime mix, has yielded a wealth of information on the way crime develops over the life-span. Policymakers in turn have used this information in their efforts to tailor criminal justice interventions to be both effective and efficient. Life-course criminology studies the ways in which the criminal career is embedded in the totality of the individual life-course and seeks to clarify the causal mechanisms governing this process. The Routledge International Handbook of Life-Course Criminology provides an authoritative collection of international theoretical and empirical research into the way that criminal behavior develops over the life-span, which causal mechanisms are involved in shaping this development, and to what degree criminal justice interventions are successful in redirecting offenders¡¦ criminal trajectories. Drawing upon qualitative and quantitative research this handbook covers theory, describes and compares criminal career patterns across different countries, tests current explanations of criminal development, and using cutting-edge methods, assesses the intended and unintended effects of formal interventions. This book is the first of its kind to offer a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art developments in criminal career and life-course research, providing unique perspectives and exclusive local knowledge from over 50 international scholars. This book is an ideal companion for teachers and researchers engaged in the field of developmental and life-course criminology.

VSB15-001 The Routledge Handbook of Criminal Justice Ethics
  Jacobs, Jonathan/ 9780415708654/ Price:¢G 185.00
 
Book Cover The enormous financial cost of criminal justice has motivated increased scrutiny and recognition of the need for constructive change, but what of the ethical costs of current practices and policies? Moreover, if we seriously value the principles of liberal democracy then there is no question that the ethics of criminal justice are everybody¡¦s business, concerns for the entire society. The Routledge Handbook of Criminal Justice Ethics brings together international scholars to explore the most significant ethical issues throughout their many areas of expertise, anchoring their discussions in the empirical realities of the issues faced rather than applying moral theory at a distance. Contributions from philosophers, legal scholars, criminologists and psychologists bring a fresh and interdisciplinary approach to the field. The Handbook is divided into three parts: ¡EPart I addresses the core issues concerning criminal sanction, the moral and political aspects of the justification of punishment, and the relationship between law and morality. ¡EPart II examines criminalization and criminal liability, and the assumptions and attitudes shaping those aspects of contemporary criminal justice. ¡EPart III evaluates current policies and practices of criminal procedure, exploring the roles of police, prosecutors, judges, and juries and suggesting directions for revising how criminal justice is achieved. Throughout, scholars seek pathways for change and suggest new solutions to address the central concerns of criminal justice ethics. This book is an ideal resource for upper-undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in criminal justice ethics, criminology, and criminal justice theory, and also for students of philosophy interested in punishment, law and society, and law and ethics.

VB01-99 Madness and Crime, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bean, Philip/ 9781138962002/ Price:¢G 885.00
 
Book Cover Madness raises intriguing¡Xand complex¡Xcriminological questions, not least the famous trio of ¡¥triability, responsibility, and punishability¡¦. Furthermore, law-enforcement agencies frequently face a choice between invoking the criminal law or using mental-health remedies. And if and when sentences are passed, not all mentally disordered offenders receive treatment. That prompts a number of additional questions, such as: how effective are institutions to which these offenders are sent?

VB01-98 Cultural Criminology, 4-Vols/Set.
  Hayward, Keith/ 9780415812887/ Price:¢G 900.00
 
Book Cover Cultural Criminology is a theoretical, methodological, and interventionist approach to the study of crime and deviance that places criminality and its control in the context of culture; that is, it views crime and the agencies and institutions of crime control as cultural products¡Xas creative constructs. Cultural criminologists focus relentlessly on the continuous generation of meaning around interaction: rules created, rules broken, a constant interplay of moral entrepreneurship, political innovation, and transgression. Indeed, Cultural Criminology is now a well-established¡Xif heterogeneous and contentious¡Xfield of study. The work of cultural criminologists supports numerous international journals, regional organizations, and global conferences. As the field continues to flourish as never before, this new title from Routledge, edited by a distinguished scholar with an international reputation, meets the need for an authoritative, one-stop reference work to make sense of the wide range of approaches, theories, and concepts that have informed Cultural Criminology. In four volumes, the collection assembles the best and most influential contributions made by cultural criminologists from around the world. The gathered works cover not only the history and antecedents of Cultural Criminology and cutting-edge theories, but also explore a variety of research methods used by leading scholars in the field and the rich data generated by their rigorous empirical work.
   
VB01-107 Hate Crime, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bean, Philip/ 9781138962101/ Price:¢G 885.00
 
Book Cover In the United Kingdom, an official definition of hate crime is ¡¥any criminal offence which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards someone based on a personal characteristic¡¦, but this critical criminological concept is increasingly recognized, theorized, and researched beyond British and North American jurisidictions. The archetypal hate crime is a racist offence, but the category can also include religiously motivated, homophobic, disablist, and transphobic crimes, and may extend to other types of victimization such as ¡¥gendered hostility¡¦, ¡¥elder abuse¡¦, and even attacks on alternative subcultures and violence against prostitutes and the homeless. Hate crime is widely recognized as a particularly wicked form of behaviour, not least because of the especially deleterious impact it can have upon its victims, their families, and wider communities. Now, to enable users to make sense of a complex and contested corpus of international scholarship, Routledge announces Hate Crime, a new title in its Critical Concepts in Criminology series. This four-volume ¡¥mini library¡¦ enables users to consult influential texts, both old and new, and to trace the development of this important area of research and study. With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Hate Crime is an indispensable work of reference. It is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource.

  Pangod, Kirstein P. P./ 9781680945959/ Price:US$ 145.00
 
Book Cover This book concerns many topics and theories, including those concerning prisons (prison reform, prisoner abuse, prisoners¡¦ rights, and recidivism), as well as theories of the purposes of punishment. Penology is concerned with the effectiveness of those social processes devised and adopted for the prevention of crime, via the repression or inhibition of criminal intent via the fear of punishment. The study of penology therefore deals with the treatment of prisoners and the subsequent rehabilitation of convicted criminals. It also encompasses aspects of probation as well as penitentiary science relating to the secure detention and retraining of offenders committed to secure institutions. Contemporary penology concerns itself mainly with criminal rehabilitation and prison management. The word seldom applies to theories and practices of punishment in less formal environments such as parenting, school and workplace correctional measures.

Designing Prostitution Policy: Intention and Reality in Regulating the Sex Trade
  Hendrik Wagenaar/ 9781447324249/ Price:¢G 75.00
 
Book Cover While the debate on regulating prostitution usually focuses on national policy, it is local policy measures that have the most impact on the ground. This book is the first to offer a detailed analysis of the design and implementation of prostitution policy at the local level and carefully situates local policy practices in national policy making and transnational trends in labour migration and exploitation. Based on detailed comparative research in Austria and the Netherlands, and bringing in experiences in countries such as New Zealand and Sweden, it analyses the policy instruments employed by local administrators to control prostitution and sex workers.

The Rise of the Right: English Nationalism and the Transformation of Working-Class Politics
  Simon Winlow/ 9781447328483/ Price:¢G 12.99
 
Book Cover The shock Brexit result highlighted a worrying trend: underemployed white men and women who have seen their standard of living fall, their communities disintegrate and their sense of value, function and inclusion diminish, desperately want a mainstream political party to defend their interests. However, no such party exists. These men and women cannot connect their declining fortunes and growing frustrations to their true cause. Instead, immigrants are scapegoated and groups like the English Defence League (EDL) emerge. This book is the first to offer an accessible and uncompromising look at the EDL. It aims to alter thinking about working-class politics and the rise of right-wing nationalism in the de-industrialised and decaying towns and cities of England. The rise of the right among the working class, the authors claim, is inextricably connected to the withdrawal of the political left from traditional working-class communities, and the left¡¦s refusal to advance the economic interests of those who have suffered most from neoliberal economic restructuring. Incisive, contentious and boundary-breaking, it uses the voices of men and women who now support far-right political groups to address the total failure of mainstream parliamentary politics and the rising tide of frustration, resentment and anger.

Indigenous Criminology
  Chris Cunneen/ 9781447321767/ Price:¢G 21.99
 
Book Cover Indigenous Criminology is the first book to comprehensively explore Indigenous people¡¦s contact with criminal justice systems in a contemporary and historical context.

Written by leading criminologists specialising in Indigenous justice issues, the book argues for the importance of Indigenous knowledges and methodologies to criminology, and suggests that colonialism needs to be a fundamental concept to criminology in order to understand contemporary problems such as deaths in custody, high imprisonment rates, police brutality and the high levels of violence in some Indigenous communities.

Labour Exploitation and Work-Based Harm
  Sam Scott/ 9781447322030/ Price:¢G 70.00

Mapping out a new sub-discipline, this innovative book aims to shift power from employers to workers to reduce levels of labour exploitation and work-based harm. It is relevant to academics from many fields as well as legislators, policy makers, politicians, employers, union officials, activists and consumers.
   
Solitary Confinement: Lived Experiences and Ethical Implications
  David Polizzi/ 9781447337539/ Price:¢G 45.00

Using Merleau-Ponty¡¦s concept of embodied subjectivity, it provides first-hand accounts of the inhumane experience of solitary confinement to provide a better appreciation of the relationship between penal strategy and its effect on human beings. Drawing on his own experiences as a Psychological Specialist in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and on those interviewed as part of the Guardian 6x9 project (http://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2016/apr/27/6x9-a-virtual-experience-of-solitary-confinement), the author focuses on the phenomenology of solitary confinement to consider what the intentional aspect of this almost uninhabitable type of confinement says about a democratic society that continues to justify its use as a correctional strategy. Aiming to influence policy, the book fills the gap between the practice of solitary confinement and its implications, as well as the social attitudes that uncritically condone its use.

Responding to crime explores criminal justice responses to crime, including crime prevention, restorative justice, approaches to policing and trial as well as post-conviction issues such as imprisonment, community sanctions and rehabilitation. 3. Contexts of crime investigates the social, political and cultural contexts of the policymaking process, including media representations, politics, the role of the victim and the impact of gender. 4. Emerging ideas focuses on innovative ideas that prompt a reconsideration of received wisdom on particular topics, including sexual violence and ethnicity. Charting the key contours of the criminological enterprise on the island of Ireland and placing the Irish material in the context of the wider European and international literature, this book is essential reading for those involved in the study of Irish criminology and international and comparative criminal justice.

Book Cover Described by the learned editor of this new Routledge collection as ¡¥both a subfield and a fundamental approach to criminological inquiry¡¦, theoretical criminology is concerned with debates about foundational analytical concepts: what is crime? What is punishment? It also seeks to explain outcomes: what causes crime? What is the effect of punishment? What makes a criminal? As theoretical criminology continues rapidly to develop, this new four-volume ¡¥mini library¡¦ meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the major works that have contributed to its growth. The gathered pieces¡Xassembled by a distinguished scholar from the University of Oxford¡¦s Centre for Criminology¡Xexplore the nature of ¡¥theory¡¦ and ¡¥explanation¡¦ within criminology, and the sometimes fraught relationship between the two. Moreover, the collection maps the chronological development of criminology theory to provide a clear sense of its evolution, as well as to enable users to understand and explore the links between criminological analysis and general social, political, and cultural theory. The fully indexed collection is also supplemented by the editor¡¦s new introduction which provides a critical overview and analysis, and places the collected materials in their historical and intellectual context. Indeed, for researchers and students, Theoretical Criminology is an essential one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
   
VB01-94 Crime II, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bean, Philip/ 9781138015043/ Price:¢G 940.00
 
Book Cover A new title from Routledge, Crime II is an essential successor to the editor¡¦s earlier collection, published to acclaim in 2002. Bean¡¦s Crime (978-0-415-25264-5) (2002) was the first comprehensive anthology of the field¡¦s canonical and cutting-edge research, and this new four-volume assembly of major works now takes full account of the many important developments that have taken place since its appearance. For example, in many jurisdictions, crime prevention has become a more dominant theme. The reduction in crime rates, alongside a similar fall in the extent of drug abuse, has also required a reappraisal of many earlier theories of the links with crime and selected social factors. Crime II reflects these and other changes, as well as anticipating those not yet fully formulated in the academy. With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Crime II is an indispensable work of reference. Alongside its predecessor, it is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource. * * * Philip Bean is Emeritus Professor of Criminology at the University of Loughborough, and was formerly Director of the Midlands Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice. He was president of the British Society of Criminology (1996 to 1999) and from 2000 to 2006 he was an Associate of the General Medical Council. Bean is the author of many essential Routledge books, including Drugs and Crime, 4th edn. (forthcoming, 2014). His other publications include Madness and Crime (Willan, 2007) and Legalising Drugs (Policy Press, 2010).

SB15-450 A Philosophy of the Social Construction of Crime.
  Polizzi, David/ 9781447327325/ Price:¢G 40.00
 
Book Cover It is well known that the social definition of individuals and ethnic groups helps legitimize how they are addressed by law enforcement. The philosophy of the social construction of crime and criminal behaviour reflects how individuals, such as police officers, construct meaning from the perspective from which they emerge, which in turn influences their law enforcement outlook. In the field, this is generally viewed through a positivist frame of reference which fails to critically examine assumptions of approach and practice. Written by an international specialist in this area, this is the first book which attempts to situate the social construction of crime and criminal behaviour within the philosophical context of phenomenology and how these constructions help inform, and ultimately justify, the policies employed to address them. Challenging existing thinking, this is essential reading for academics and students interested in social theory and theories of criminology. - See more at: http://www.policypress.
   
State Crime and Immorality: The Corrupting Influence of the Powerful.
  Monaghan, Mark/ 9781447316749/ Price:¢G 70.00
 
Book Cover This is the first book to examine the activities of UK and international ¡¥role models¡¦ through the lens of state crime and social policy. Written by experts in the field of sociology and social policy, it defines the ideal state as a single, functioning whole which ensures uniformity in the name of legitimacy. It then details the ways that states do not constitute the ideal in terms of the dangers associated with the maintenance of legitimacy and state power. Anti-democratic measures, such as the invasions of other nation states, the idea that the media can both reinforce and influence the state and the problems of over-zealous policing of a state¡¦s own populace, are covered. Using the topical example of Rupert Murdoch and the activities of his media organisation to show how powerful individuals and corporations can and do exert political influence, the book provides a comprehensive discussion of state immorality and deviance generally and state crime in particular. It will appeal to range of academics and practitioners in broader disciplines such as criminology, sociology, politics and political science.

Coercion and Women Co-offenders: A Gendered Pathway into Crime
  Charlotte Barlow/ 9781447330981/ Price:¢G 40.00
 
Book Cover This is the first book to explore coercion as a pathway into crime for co-offending women. Using newspaper articles and case and court files, it analyses four cases of women co-accused of a crime with their partner who suggested that coercive techniques had influenced their involvement in the offending. Based on a feminist perspective, it highlights the importance of gender role expectations and gendered discourses in how the trials were conducted, and the ways in which the media framed the trials (and the women). Considering the legal and social construction of coercion, this fascinating book concludes by exploring the implications for public understanding of coercion and female offending more broadly.

Tactical Rape in War and Conflict: International Recognition and Response
  Brenda Fitzpatrick/ 9781447326700/ Price:¢G 26.99
 
Book Cover The use of rape as a deliberate tactic of war is a serious human rights issue that needs to be addressed as a threat to human and international security. This ground-breaking book is the first to analyse its use as an act of war against civilians and international progress away from tacit acceptance toward active rejection of this violation of international law. Exploring international responses to sexual violence in war, it introduces the main historical facts, theoretical terms and legal developments behind UNSC resolutions on women, peace and security and the emerging practice of international law in this area. It identifies best practice in moving beyond accepting rape in war as inevitable to the recognition of tactical rape as a security concern for women, men, states and the international community. Powerful testimonies of victims are included to bring the issue alive, making this a much-needed volume for academic and professional communities.

Indigenous Criminology
  Chris Cunneen/ 9781447321750/ Price:¢G 60.00
 
Book Cover Indigenous Criminology is the first book to comprehensively explore Indigenous people¡¦s contact with criminal justice systems in a contemporary and historical context. Drawing on comparative Indigenous material from North America, Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, it addresses both the theoretical underpinnings to the development of a specific Indigenous criminology, and canvasses the broader policy and practice implications for criminal justice. Written by leading criminologists specialising in Indigenous justice issues, the book argues for the importance of Indigenous knowledges and methodologies to criminology, and suggests that colonialism needs to be a fundamental concept to criminology in order to understand contemporary problems such as deaths in custody, high imprisonment rates, police brutality and the high levels of violence in some Indigenous communities. Prioritising the voices of Indigenous peoples, the work will make a significant contribution to the development of a decolonising criminology and will be of wide interest.

VSB15-001 The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration.
  Pickering, Sharon/ 9780415823944/ Price:¢G 185.00
 
Book Cover The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration is concerned with the various relationships between migration, crime and victimization that have informed a wide criminological scholarship often driven by some of the original lines of inquiry of the Chicago School. Historically, migration and crime came to be the device by which Criminology and cognate fields sought to tackle issues of race and ethnicity, often in highly problematic ways. However, in the contemporary period this body of scholarship is inspiring scholars to produce significant evidence that speaks to some of the biggest public policy questions and debunks many dominant mythologies around the criminality of migrants. The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration is also concerned with the theoretical, empirical and policy knots found in the relationship between regular and irregular migration, offending and victimization, the processes and impact of criminalization, and the changing role of criminal justice systems in the regulation and enforcement of international mobility and borders. The Handbook is focused on the migratory ¡¥fault lines¡¦ between the Global North and Global South, which have produced new or accelerated sites of state control, constructed irregular migration as a crime and security problem, and mobilized ideological and coercive powers usually reserved for criminal or military threats. Offering a strong international focus and comprehensive coverage of a wide range of border, criminal justice and migration-related issues, this book is an important contribution to criminology and migration studies and will be essential reading for academics, students and practitioners interested in this field.
   
VSB15-001 The Routledge International Handbook of Biosocial Criminology.
  DeLisi, Matt/ 9780415722131/ Price:¢G 160.00
 
Book Cover Biosocial criminology is an interdisciplinary field that aims to explain crime and antisocial behavior by exploring both biological factors and environmental factors. Since the mapping of the human genome, scientists have been able to study the biosocial causes of human behaviour with the greatest specificity. After decades of almost exclusive sociological focus, criminology has undergone a paradigm shift where the field is more interdisciplinary and this book combines perspectives from criminology and sociology with contributions from fields such as genetics, neuropsychology, and evolutionary psychology. The Routledge International Handbook of Biosocial Criminology is the largest and most comprehensive work of its kind, and is organized into five sections that collectively span the terrain of biosocial research on antisocial behavior. Bringing together leading experts from around the world, this book considers the criminological, genetic and neuropsychological foundations of offending, as well as the legal and criminal justice applications of biosocial criminological theory. The handbook is essential reading for students, researchers, and practitioners from across the social, behavioural, and natural sciences who are engaged in the study of antisocial behaviour.
   
VSB15-001 The Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Criminology.
  Copes, Heith/ 9780415659703/ Price:¢G 160.00
 
Book Cover Despite illustrious origins dating to the 1920s, qualitative crime research has long been overshadowed by quantitative inquiry. After decades of limited use, there has been a notable resurgence in crime ethnography, naturalistic inquiry, and related forms of fieldwork addressing crime and related social control efforts. The Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Criminology signals this momentum as the first major reference work dedicated to crime ethnography and related fieldwork orientations. Synthesizing the foremost topics and issues in qualitative criminology into a single definitive work, the Handbook provides a "first-look" reference source for scholars and students alike. The collection features twenty original chapters on leading qualitative crime research strategies, the complexities of collecting and analyzing qualitative data, and the ethical propriety of researching active criminals and incarcerated offenders. Contributions from both established luminaries and talented emerging scholars highlight the traditions and emerging trends in qualitative criminology through authoritative overviews and "lived experience" examples. Comprehensive and current, The Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Criminology promises to be a sound reference source for academics, students and practitioners as ethnography and fieldwork realize continued growth throughout the 21st Century.
   
VSB15-001 Routledge Handbook of Transnational Organized Crime.
  Allum, Felia/ 9781138909441/ Price:¢G 41.99
 
Book Cover Transnational organized crime crosses borders, challenges States, exploits individuals, pursues profit, wrecks economies, destroys civil society, and ultimately weakens global democracy. It is a phenomenon that is all too often misunderstood and misrepresented. This handbook attempts to redress the balance, by providing a fresh and interdisciplinary overview of the problems which transnational organized crime represents. The innovative aspect of this handbook is not only its interdisciplinary nature but also the dialogue between international academics and practitioners that it presents. The handbook seeks to provide the definitive overview of transnational organized crime, including contributions from leading international scholars as well as emerging researchers. The work starts by examining the origins, concepts, contagion and evolution of transnational organized crime and then moves on to discuss the impact, governance and reactions of governments and their agencies, before looking to the future of transnational organized crime, and how the State will seek to respond. Providing a cutting edge survey of the discipline, this work will be essential reading for all those with an interest in this dangerous phenomenon.
   
VSB15-001 The Routledge Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime in Europe.
  Erp, Judith van/ 9780415722148/ Price:¢G 155.00
 
Book Cover The study of white-collar crime remains a central concern for criminologists around the world and research concentrates on its nature, prevalence, causes and responses. However, most books on white-collar crime tend to focus on Anglo-American examples, which is surprising given the amount of rich data and research taking place in mainland Europe. This new handbook seeks to reset the balance and, for the first time, presents an overview of state-of-the-art research on white-collar crime in Europe. Adding to the existing Anglo-American body of knowledge, the Handbook will discuss specific European topics and typical European features of white-collar crime. The Routledge Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime in Europe consists of more than thirty chapters on topics ranging from the Icelandic Banking Crisis, to the origins of the study of white collar crime, to contemporary topics, such as white-collar crime in countries post-transition from communist regimes; the illegal e-waste trade and white-collar crime in professional football. Furthermore, the book contains extensive case study analyses of landmark European cases of white-collar crime. The editors have gathered together the leading voices in the field and a final section offers commentaries on white-collar crime in Europe from eminent criminologists David Friedrichs and Hazel Croall. This Handbook will thus serve as a work of reference for all scholars and students engaged in the study of corporate and white-collar crime and will also set out directions for new research in the future.
   
VSB15-001 The Routledge International Handbook of the Crimes of the Powerful.
  Barak, Gregg/ 9780415741262/ Price:¢G 160.00
 
Book Cover Across the world, most people are well aware of ordinary criminal harms to person and property. Often committed by the powerless and poor, these individualized crimes are catalogued in the statistics collected annually by the FBI and by similar agencies in other developed nations. In contrast, the more harmful and systemic forms of injury to person and property committed by powerful and wealthy individuals, groups, and national states are neither calculated by governmental agencies nor annually reported by the mass media. As a result, most citizens of the world are unaware of the routinized "crimes of the powerful", even though they are more likely to experience harms and injuries from these types of organized offenses than they are from the atomized offenses of the powerless. Research on the crimes of the powerful brings together several areas of criminological focus, involving organizational and institutional networks of powerful people that commit crimes against workers, marketplaces, taxpayers and political systems, as well as acts of torture, terrorism, and genocide. This international handbook offers a comprehensive, authoritative and structural synthesis of these interrelated topics of criminological concern. It also explains why the crimes of the powerful are so difficult to control. Edited by internationally acclaimed criminologist Gregg Barak, this book reflects the state of the art of scholarly research, covering all the key areas including corporate, global, environmental, and state crimes. The handbook is a perfect resource for students and researchers engaged with explaining and controlling the crimes of the powerful, domestically and internationally.

Values in Criminology and Community Justice.

This collection of writings considers values in crime theory, criminal justice and research practice, uncovering the many different 'sides' ¡V to echo Howard Becker's famous phrase ¡V that criminologists, policy makers and researchers take. It spans Marxist, postmodernist and feminist perspectives on criminology, analyses of the dynamics of race, gender and age, research methods and ethics, the working of the criminal justice system and engages with current debates about new challenges for criminology, such as the green movement and Islamophobia. This is a timely and thought-provoking collection which will be of interest to academics and students in criminology and criminal justice, and on professional courses, such as probation and youth justice practice.

Female Serial Killers in Social Context: Criminological Institutionalism and the Case of Mary Ann Cotton.
  Yardley, Elizabeth/ 9781447326458/ Price:¢G 40.00
 
Book Cover o date, approaches to understanding serial murder have focused on individual cases rather than the social context in which they occurred. Written by leading criminologists and world experts on serial murder, this book marks a departure by situating nineteenth century serial killer Mary Ann Cotton within the broader social structure. Using archival records of her court appearances, local histories and newspaper articles, it uniquely explores how institutions such as the family, economy and religion shaped the environment she inhabited and her social integration through the roles of wife, mother, worker and criminal. Acknowledging that it takes a particular type of individual to commit serial murder, the book shows that it also takes a particular type of society to enable that murderer to go unseen. As the first work to analyse serial murder through the theoretical framework of institutional criminology and institutional anomie theory, it will equip criminologists with a methodological toolkit for performing institutional analysis.

Competition for Prisons: Public or Private?
  Le Vay, Julian/ 9781447313229/ Price:¢G 24.99
 
Book Cover A quarter of century has passed since Margaret Thatcher launched one of her most controversial reforms, privately- run prisons, and the role of the private sector in delivering public services continues to be one of the big political issues of our time. This book, by a critical professional insider, re-assesses the benefits and failures of competition, how public and private prisons compare, the impact of competition on the public sector¡¦s performance, and how well Government has managed this peculiar ¡¥quasi-market¡¦. Drawing on first person interviews with key players, including Chief Executives and prison managers in both sectors and Chief Inspectors, Julian Le Vay uses his former role as Finance Director of the Prison Service to give a wholly new analysis of comparative costs and of the impact of constant changes in competition policy.

Concluding with a critique of the future shape of competition, he also draws some general conclusions on the way government works. This is vital reading for anyone interested in the role of competition in public services, implementation of public policy, or the state of our prisons.

VSB15 The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration
  Pickering, Sharon/ 9781138303522/ Price:¢G 39.99
 
Book Cover The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration is concerned with the various relationships between migration, crime and victimization that have informed a wide criminological scholarship often driven by some of the original lines of inquiry of the Chicago School. Historically, migration and crime came to be the device by which Criminology and cognate fields sought to tackle issues of race and ethnicity, often in highly problematic ways. However, in the contemporary period this body of scholarship is inspiring scholars to produce significant evidence that speaks to some of the biggest public policy questions and debunks many dominant mythologies around the criminality of migrants. The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration is also concerned with the theoretical, empirical and policy knots found in the relationship between regular and irregular migration, offending and victimization, the processes and impact of criminalization, and the changing role of criminal justice systems in the regulation and enforcement of international mobility and borders. The Handbook is focused on the migratory ¡¥fault lines¡¦ between the Global North and Global South, which have produced new or accelerated sites of state control, constructed irregular migration as a crime and security problem, and mobilized ideological and coercive powers usually reserved for criminal or military threats. Offering a strong international focus and comprehensive coverage of a wide range of border, criminal justice and migration-related issues, this book is an important contribution to criminology and migration studies and will be essential reading for academics, students and practitioners interested in this field.

The Street Casino: Survival in Violent Street Gangs.
  Harding, Simon/ 9781447317173/ Price:¢G 77.99
 
Book Cover Gang violence is on the increase in certain neighbourhoods. There is an urgent need for a fresh perspective that offers insight into gang structure, organisation and offending behaviour to explain this increase. Using the findings from an extensive ethnographic study of local residents, professionals and gang members in south London, and drawing on his vast experience and knowledge of the field, Simon Harding proposes a unique theoretical perspective on survival in violent street gangs. He applies Bourdieu¡¦s principles of social field analysis and habitus to gangs, establishing them as a social arena of competition where actors struggle for distinction and survival, striving to become ¡¥players in the game¡¦ in the ¡¥casino of life¡¦. Success is determined by accruing and retaining playing chips ¡V street capital. Harding¡¦s dramatic and compelling insights depict gang life as one of constant flux, where players jostle for position, reputation, status and distinction. This perspective offers new evidence to the field that will help academics, students, practitioners and policy makers to understand the dynamics of gang behaviour and the associated risks of violence and offending. Simon Harding is currently a senior lecturer in criminology at Middlesex University, UK. He draws on 25 years of experience in research, public policy and project delivery as a crime reduction and community safety practitioner.

Unleashed: The Phenomena of Status Dogs and Weapon Dogs.
  Harding, Simon/ 9781447316206/ Price:¢G 16.99
 
Book Cover This is the first book in the UK or US to set on record the recent cultural phenomenon of the use of certain dog breeds - both legal and illegal - to 'convey status' upon their owners. Such dogs are easily visible on social housing estates throughout the UK and in projects in the USA and provide acquired authority, respect, power and control. However they are increasingly linked to urban street gangs as 'Weapon Dogs' and present a danger to the ordinary public especially those using parks and open spaces with increased injuries being presented at UK hospitals.

It considers a complex mix of urban and social deprivation, social control of public space and the influence of contemporary media imagery and 'gangsta' culture. It will make essential reading for academics and policy makers in criminology and criminal justice and those working with animal rights/animal welfare groups.

This exciting new book outlines the state of practice now in flux within structures created by New Labour but moving in a different direction under the Coalition Government. With a loosening of rules and prescription, it explores opportunities for a fresh orientation that places young people at the centre and works collaboratively to nurture strengths, competences and capital. The chapters build a picture of the risks and problems that modern society creates for young people, while acknowledging that society must respond when their behaviours legitimately cause risks and problems for others. The burning question is how we do so and this book proposes a critical perspective that leads into a bold, but realistic remodelling of practice. It will be ideal for students of youth justice and criminal justice on foundation, post-qualifying or professional (CPD) courses.

VB01-78 Encyclopedia of Street Crime in America.
  Ross, Jeffrey Ian/ 9781412999571/ Price:¢G 105.00
 
Book Cover Anyone living or working in a city has feared or experienced street crime at one time or another, whether it be a mugging, purse snatching or a more violent crime. In the United States, street crime has recently hovered near historic lows; hence, the declaration of certain analysts that street life in America has never been safer. But is it really? Street crime has changed over past decades, especially with the advent of surveillance cameras in public places - the territory of the street criminal - but at the same time, criminals have found ways to adapt. This encyclopedic reference focuses primarily on urban lifestyle and its associated crimes, ranging from burglary to drug peddling to murder to new, more sophisticated forms of street crime and scams. This traditional A-to-Z reference has significant coverage of police and courts and other criminal justice subdisciplines while also featuring thematic articles on the sociology of street crime.
   
VA05-134-2 Encyclopedia of White-Collar and Corporate Crime, 2-Vols/Set.
  Salinger, Lawrence M./ 9781452225302/ Price:¢G 320.00
 
Book Cover Since the first edition of the Encyclopedia of White Collar and Corporate Crime was produced in 2004, the number and severity of these crimes have risen to the level of calamity, so much so that many experts attribute the near-Depression of 2008 to white-collar malfeasance, namely crimes of greed and excess by bankers and financial institutions. Whether the perpetrators were prosecuted or not, white-collar and corporate crime came near to collapsing the U.S. economy. In the 7 years since the first edition was produced we have also seen the largest Ponzi scheme in history (Maddoff), an ecological disaster caused by British Petroleum and its subcontractors (Gulf Oil Spill), and U.S. Defense Department contractors operating like vigilantes in Iraq (Blackwater). White-collar criminals have been busy, and the Second Edition of this encyclopedia captures what has been going on in the news and behind the scenes with new articles and updates to past articles.

SB15-428 Criminalisation and Advanced Marginality: Critically Exploring the Work of Loic Wacquant.
  Squires, Peter/ 9781447300007/ Price:¢G 28.99
 
Book Cover This book represents the first full-length critical and interdisciplinary assessment of Loi"c Wacquant's work in English. Wacquant's challenging critique of the neo-liberal government of crime and the punitive culture to which this is related has shaken criminology to its foundations. In a bold political analysis he describes how the US-led revolution in law and order has dismantled the welfare state, replacing it with a disciplinary and penal state. Wacquant's analysis also details the spread of neo-liberal crime control measures and the underpinning 'pornographic' discourses of crime across the developed world, although critics have questioned the extent to which this model of criminal justice really is gaining the worldwide dominance alleged. Written by criminologists and policy analysts, Criminalisation and advanced marginality offers a constructive but critical application of Wacquant's ideas. The contributors welcome the opportunity presented by Wacquant's work to re-engage with a radical politics of law and order, criminalisation and marginality, whilst raising issues of gender, resistance, conflict and history which, they argue, help to enrich and further develop Wacquant's analyses. The book concludes with a chapter from Professor Wacquant himself responding to the commentaries upon his work. It fills an important gap in the existing literature and will be exciting reading for academics and students of criminology, social policy and the social sciences more broadly.

Values in Criminology and Community Justice.
  Cowburn, Malcolm/ 9781447300359/ Price:¢G 77.99
 
Book Cover The way we think about crime and the way that society responds to it are imbued with values that can determine what is considered important and what gets attention. Sometimes values that are claimed may not be the values expressed in practice, as we see in the multiple and confusing discourses about victims and offenders, punishment and protection, rights and responsibilities. This collection of writings considers values in crime theory, criminal justice and research practice, uncovering the many different 'sides' - to echo Howard Becker's famous phrase - that criminologists, policy makers and researchers take. It spans Marxist, postmodernist and feminist perspectives on criminology, analyses of the dynamics of race, gender and age, research methods and ethics, the working of the criminal justice system and engages with current debates about new challenges for criminology, such as the green movement and Islamophobia. This is a timely and thought-provoking collection which will be of interest to academics and students in criminology and criminal justice, and on professional courses, such as probation and youth justice practice.
   
Environmental Harm: An Eco-justice Perspective.
  Rob White/ 9781447300403/ Price:¢G 77.99
 
Book Cover This unique study of social harm offers a systematic and critical discussion of the nature of environmental harm from an eco-justice perspective, challenging conventional criminological definitions of environmental harm. The book evaluates three interconnected justice-related approaches to environmental harm: environmental justice (humans), ecological justice (the environment) and species justice (non-human animals). It provides a critical assessment of environmental harm by interrogating key concepts and exploring how activists and social movements engage in the pursuit of justice. It concludes by describing the tensions between the different approaches and the importance of developing an eco-justice framework that to some extent can reconcile these differences. Using empirical evidence built on theoretical foundations with examples and illustrations from many national contexts, ¡¥Environmental harm¡¦ will be of interest to students and academics in criminology, sociology, law, geography, environmental studies, philosophy and social policy all over the world.

Risk and Rehabilitation: Management and Treatment of Substance Misuse and Mental Health Problems in the Criminal Justice System.
  Pycroft, Aaron/ 9781447300212/ Price:¢G 26.99
 
Book Cover Substance misuse (including alcohol) and mental health problems constitute a significant proportion of the work carried out in the criminal justice system. Approaches to these often intractable problems have seen the rise of a dominant risk paradigm concerned with public protection and the use of coercion through court orders to access treatment. This original and valuable book considers notions of risk and rehabilitation in detail within the practice of those court orders, whilst contextualising them within a wider comparative literature and research base. The efficacy of these approaches, practice issues and innovations including for example therapeutic jurisprudence are analysed. Risk and rehabilitation also includes discussions of the implications for partnership working and the importance of reconfiguring the nature of rehabilitative relationships. This is a timely book as probation practice in the UK and elsewhere moves into a post 'what works' era, providing opportunities to review the evidence base for effective interventions.
   
Myths And Realities Of Crime And Justice: What Every American Should Know.
  Barkan, Steven E./ 9781449691080/ Price:US$ 85.95
 
For all their interest in crime, most Americans know relatively little about the reality of crime and the criminal justice system in the United States and most of what Americans do know is a loose collection of haphazardly accumulated truths, half-truths, and outright falsehoods. The American public's perception of crime is out of line with crime reality. One consequence of such misinformation on the prevalence of violent crime is that many people are more afraid of being the victim of a violent crime than they realistically should be. Myths and Realities of Crime and Justice: What Every American Should Know, Second Edition provides reader with an accurate and up-to-date picture of crime and justice in America. It presents many recent findings from criminologists and criminal justice practitioners and debunks common misconceptions.

Hidden Stories of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry.
  Stone, Richard/ 9781447308485/ Price:¢G 10.99
 
Book Cover Young people who come into contact with police officers on the streets today have little idea of the significance of the stabbing to death of Stephen Lawrence in a racist attack in 1993. Only their parents or grandparents remember the daily exposures of police incompetence and indirect racism which were given high profile in the media for six months. The repercussions of the case are still on-going with the long overdue conviction in 2012 of two of the original suspects, and in the same year a number of racist assaults by police. This unique book provides an insider's view of the seminal inquiry into Stephen Lawrence's murder. Dr Richard Stone OBE was a panel member of the Inquiry as Adviser to the judge, Sir William Macpherson. This accessible and engaging book includes analysis of hitherto inaccessible transcripts. These dramatically show how the Inquiry was undermined to the point of failure to produce the desired results. Dr Stone also discusses contemporary issues and the relevance of the Inquiry today. He says "I have written about my experience because I feel a degree of obligation to tell, from my position at the centre of the Inquiry, just how difficult issues were dealt with." Hard-hitting and full of insightful detail, this book makes essential reading for academics, students, researchers and anyone interested in institutional racism, particularly in the police.

Investigating Sexual Assault Cases.
  Chancellor, Steve/ 9781449648695/ Price:US$ 67.95
 
Book Cover Not all crimes are committed equally and therefore not all investigations can be conducted equally. Each crime type requires unique investigative techniques - from first response, to evidence collection, and interviewing the victims and suspects - every crime type necessitates distinct investigative procedures and reporting. Written for criminal investigation courses and specifically sex crime investigation courses, Investigating Sexual Assault Cases presents the basic responsibilities of first responders and highlights specific demands for investigators and prosecutors. Part of the Jones & Bartlett Learning Guides to Law Enforcement Investigation series, this comprehensive resource provides future law enforcement professionals with the information necessary to accurately investigate and analyze sexual assault crimes, improve clearance rates, increase rape and sexual assault reporting, and reduce the number of wrongful incarcerations.

VB01-76 Encyclopedia of Transnational Crime and Justice.
  Beare, Margaret E./ 9781412990776/ Price:¢G 105.00
 
Book Cover Transnational crimes involve border crossings as an integral part of the criminal activity. They also include crimes that take place in one country with consequences that significantly affect other countries. Examples include human trafficking, smuggling (arms, drugs, currency), sex slavery, non-domestic terrorism, and financial crimes. Transnational organized crime refers specifically to transnational crime carried out by organized crime syndicates. Although several encyclopedias cover aspects of transnational crime, it is this encyclopedia's emphasis on transnational justice, as well, that differentiates it from the pack. Not only does it define, describe and chart the crimes and criminal activity, it also includes significant coverage of policing those crimes and prosecuting them within domestic and international court systems. Accessible and jargon-free, the one-volume Encyclopedia of Transnational Crime and Justice will contain such entries as arms smuggling, art fraud, charity fraud, hacking and computer viruses, copyright infringement, counterfeiting, drug smuggling, extradition, human trafficking, intelligence agencies, international banking laws, Internet scams, Interpol, money laundering, pollution and waste disposal, price fixing, prosecution, sanctions, sex slavery, tax evasion, terrorism, war crimes, the World Court, and more.

The four volumes focus on the nature of the feminist challenge and the criminological response to it. The collection is organized thematically. Volume I (¡¥Sex and Crime or Gender and Crime?¡¦) traces the emergence and development of the gender agenda within criminology, identifying its strengths and weaknesses, while Volume II (¡¥Gender, Crime, and Criminal Victimization¡¦) brings together the best thinking on the various ways in which different crimes¡Xand experiences of crime¡Xmight be informed by a gendered perspective. Volume III (¡¥Gendered Experiences of the Criminal-Justice Process¡¦), meanwhile, focuses on the criminal-justice system and the professionals engaged within it. Does the question of gender help to make better sense of how it does its work? The final volume in the collection (¡¥Gender, Crime, and Punishment¡¦) collects the key literature on the extent to which prisons, community penalties, and restorative justice reflect gendered presumptions.
   
VA05-395 The Social History of Crime and Punishment in America, 5-Vols/Set.
  Miller, Wilbur R./ 9781412988766/ Price:¢G 560.00
 
Book Cover Several encyclopedias overview the contemporary system of criminal justice in America, but full understanding of current social problems and contemporary strategies to deal with them can come only with clear appreciation of the historical underpinnings of those problems. Thus, this four-volume work surveys the history and philosophy of crime, punishment, and criminal justice institutions in America from colonial times to the present. It covers the whole of the criminal justice system, from crimes, law enforcement and policing, to courts, corrections and human services. Among other things, this encyclopedia will: explicate philosophical foundations underpinning our system of justice; chart changing patterns in criminal activity and subsequent effects on legal responses; identify major periods in the development of our system of criminal justice; and explore evolving debates and conflicts on how best to address issues of crime and punishment. Its signed entries provide the historical context for students to better understand contemporary criminological debates and the contemporary shape of the U.S. system of law and justice.
   
VA05-389 Encyclopedia of Community Corrections.
  Barton-Bellessa, Shannon M./ 9781412990837/ Price:¢G 105.00
 
Book Cover In response to recognition in the late 1960s and early 1970s that traditional incarceration was not working, alternatives to standard prison settings were sought and developed. One of those alternatives-community-based corrections-had been conceived in the 1950s as a system that might prove more progressive, humane, and effective, particularly with people who had committed less serious criminal offenses and for whom incarceration, with constant exposure to serious offenders and career criminals, might prove more damaging than rehabilitative. The alternative of community corrections has evolved to become a substantial part of the criminal justice and correctional system, spurred in recent years not so much by a progressive, humane philosophy as by dramatically increasing prison populations, court orders to "fix" overextended prison settings, and an economic search for cost savings. Although community correction programs have been in place for some 40 years now, to date no comprehensive reference resource has tackled this topic. Accessible and jargon-free, the one-volume Encyclopedia of Community Corrections will explore all aspects of community corrections, from its philosophical foundation to its current inception.

Unleashed: The Phenomena of Status Dogs and Weapon Dogs.
  Harding, Simon/ 9781447300274/ Price:¢G 77.99
 
This is the first book in the UK or US to set on record the recent cultural phenomenon of the use of certain dog breeds - both legal and illegal - to 'convey status' upon their owners. Such dogs are easily visible on social housing estates throughout the UK and in projects in the USA and provide acquired authority, respect, power and control. However they are increasingly linked to urban street gangs as 'Weapon Dogs' and present a danger to the ordinary public especially those using parks and open spaces with increased injuries being presented at UK hospitals. Though initially slow to react, local and statutory authorities are now seeking to address the issue through action plans and interventions. Written in a fresh, engaging and accessible style, this unique book contextualizes the phenomenon in terms of sociology, criminology and public policy. It considers a complex mix of urban and social deprivation, social control of public space and the influence of contemporary media imagery and 'gangsta' culture. It will make essential reading for academics and policy makers in criminology and criminal justice and those working with animal rights/animal welfare groups.

Criminalisation and Advanced Marginality: Critically Exploring the Work of Loic Wacquant.
  Squires, Peter/ 9781447300014/ Price:¢G 77.99
 
This book represents the first full-length critical and interdisciplinary assessment of Loi"c Wacquant's work in English. Wacquant's challenging critique of the neo-liberal government of crime and the punitive culture to which this is related has shaken criminology to its foundations. In a bold political analysis he describes how the US-led revolution in law and order has dismantled the welfare state, replacing it with a disciplinary and penal state. Wacquant's analysis also details the spread of neo-liberal crime control measures and the underpinning 'pornographic' discourses of crime across the developed world, although critics have questioned the extent to which this model of criminal justice really is gaining the worldwide dominance alleged. Written by criminologists and policy analysts, Criminalisation and advanced marginality offers a constructive but critical application of Wacquant's ideas. The contributors welcome the opportunity presented by Wacquant's work to re-engage with a radical politics of law and order, criminalisation and marginality, whilst raising issues of gender, resistance, conflict and history which, they argue, help to enrich and further develop Wacquant's analyses.The book concludes with a chapter from Professor Wacquant himself responding to the commentaries upon his work. It fills an important gap in the existing literature and will be exciting reading for academics and students of criminology, social policy and the social sciences more broadly.

VB01-67 Encyclopedia of Criminological Theory, 2-Vols/Set
  Cullen, Francis T./ 9781412959186/ Price:¢G 280.00
 
In discussing a criminology topic, lecturers and course textbooks often toss out names of theorists or make a sideways reference to a particular theory and move on, as if assuming their student audience possesses the necessary background to appreciate and integrate the reference. However, university reference librarians can tell you this is often far from the case. Students often approach them seeking a source to provide a quick overview of a particular theory or theorist with just the basics - the who, what, where, how and why, if you will. And reference librarians often find it difficult to guide these students to a quick, one-stop source. In response, SAGE Reference is publishing the two-volume Encyclopedia of Criminological Theory. This serves as a reference source for anyone interested in the roots of contemporary criminological theory. Drawing together a team of international scholars, it examines the global landscape of all the key theories and the theorists behind them, presenting them in the context needed to understand their strengths and weaknesses. In addition to interpretations of long-established theories, it also offers essays on cutting-edge research as one might find in a handbook. And, like an unabridged dictionary, it provides concise, to-the-point definitions of key concepts, ideas, schools, and figures. Coverage will include: contexts and concepts in criminological theory the social construction of crime policy implications of theory diversity and intercultural contexts conflict theory rational choice theories conservative criminology feminist theory.
   
VB01-64 Encyclopedia of Victimology and Crime Prevention, 2-Vols/set.
  Fisher, Bonnie S./ 9781412960472/ Price:¢G 280.00
 
Victimology and crime prevention are growing, interrelated areas cutting across several disciplines. Victimology examines victims of all sorts of criminal activity, from domestic abuse, to street violence, to victims in the workplace who lose jobs and pensions due to malfeasance by corporate executives. Crime prevention is an important companion to victimology because it offers insight and techniques to prevent situations that lead to crime and attempts to offer ideas and means for mitigating or minimizing the potential for victimization. .In many ways, the two fields have developed along parallel yet separate paths, and the literature on both has been scattered across disciplines as varied as sociology, law and criminology, public health and medicine, political science and public policy, economics, psychology and human services, and more. The Encyclopedia of Victimology and Crime Prevention provides a comprehensive reference work bringing together such dispersed knowledge as it outlines and discusses the status of victims within the criminal justice system and topics of deterring and preventing victimization in the first place and responding to victims' needs. Two volumes containing approximately 375 signed entries provide users with the most authoritative and comprehensive reference resource available on victimology and crime prevention, both in terms of breadth and depth of coverage. A representative sampling of general topic areas covered includes: interpersonal and domestic violence, child maltreatment, and elder abuse; street violence; hate crimes and terrorism; treatment of victims by the media, courts, police, and politicians; community response to crime victims; physical design for crime prevention; victims of nonviolent crimes; deterrence and prevention; helping and counseling crime victims; international and comparative perspectives, and more.
   
VB01-58 Organized Crime, 4-Vols/Set.
  Varese, Federico/ 9780415460743/ Price:¢G 860.00
 
The systematic study of organized crime dates back to John Landesco¡¦s classic of ethnography, Organized Crime in Chicago (1929). Since then, the field has grown considerably and, as well as criminologists and sociologists, the topic has been embraced by researchers from a broad range of disciplines, including political science, anthropology, economics, as well as literary and film studies. While at first attention was principally devoted to the study of ¡¥traditional¡¦ organized-crime groups, such as the Sicilian and the American mafias, since the 1980s, serious scholarly work has also emerged on, for example, the Russian mafia, the Japanese Yakuza, and the Triads in both Hong Kong, China, and the USA. Furthermore, researchers have recognized that the behaviour and structure of ¡¥traditional¡¦ organized-crime groups, and their role in both legal and illegal markets, can be fruitfully compared and contrasted to new forms of organized crime in places as varied as Africa, Columbia, Northern Ireland, and Asia. The study of organized crime has also attracted researchers interested in popular representations of the phenomenon, mainly in films and novels. Furthermore, after the events of 11 September 2001, the intersection between organized crime and terrorism, and the ability of organized-crime groups to operate transnationally and expand to new territories, has gained a new significance.

VB01-43 Library of Drug Abuse and Crime, The., 3-Vols/Set.
  Natarajan, Mangai/ 9780754627777/ Price:¢G 485.00
 
Many countries around the world find themselves grappling with problems of drug abuse. International collaborative efforts and policies have been mostly geared to obstructing the supply of drugs, while efforts to control demand have been left to national governments. Meanwhile, extensive programmes have been funded in recent decades to research the etiology and epidemiology of drug abuse as well as the drugs-crime relationship. The increase in drugs-related research is reflected in this series which collects the most significant articles and papers on the sociology and criminology of drug abuse. The journal articles are culled from a variety of relevant disciplines including economics, sociology, psychology, criminology, criminal justice, medicine and social work, and are all peer reviewed. The articles provide a thorough review of recent literature, an intellectual critique of the relevant studies and identify gaps in research and policy relating to drug abuse and crime. Taken together the three volumes offer an invaluable resource to students and scholars interested in all aspects of drug abuse and crime.

SB15-391 Terrorism and the Internet: Threats-Target Groups-Deradicalisation Strategies.
  Dienel, Hans-Liudger/ 9781607505365/ Price:EUR 135.00
 
This is the first book to analyze the abuse of the internet for terrorism and crime purposes under two new perspectives: (1) The persuasion and involvement of women and children as specific target user groups, and (2) The development of new strategies to use extremist web forums as an open book in order to understand and gain insight into terrorist thinking. Web2.0 can be even more: an open door for dialogue, deradicalisation and ultimately a way out of the cocoon of terroristic isolation. This book presents the results of a unique cooperation between Israeli and German research centers with outstanding contributions to innovative security research. Two international conferences in Berlin in 2008 brought together worldwide leading authors both from academia and government. Most recent research results challenge the actual treatment of terroristic web forums by governmental agencies. This remarkable publication will open your eyes both on the real risks of terroristic web activities and new counter strategies from analysis to dialogue.

Shoot To Kill: Police Accountability, Firearms And Fatal Force.
  Punch, Maurice/ 9781847424723/ Price:¢G 21.99
 
The shooting of Jean-Charles de Menezes at Stockwell tube station in 2005 raised acute issues about operational practice, legitimacy, accountability and policy making regarding police use of fatal force. It dramatically exposed a policy, amounting to "shoot to kill", which came not from Parliament but from the non-statutory ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers). This vital and timely book unravels these complex and often misunderstood matters with a fresh look at firearms practice and policy in a traditionally "unarmed" police service. It is essential reading for all those interested in the state's role in defining coercion and in policing a democracy.

Legalising drugs: Debates and dilemmas.
  Bean, Philip/ 9781847423757/ Price:¢G 16.99
 
Government policy has steadfastly been against drug legalisation, but increasingly critics have argued that this is unsustainable. This book is a timely examination of the issues this raises.Numerous suggestions have been offered. Some seek complete legalisation, others a more modified form, yet still others want an increasing commitment to harm reduction policies.Philip Bean examines the implications of these proposals for individuals, especially juveniles, and for society, when set against crime reduction claims. He concludes with the necessary questions a rational drug policy must answer.

VB01-61 Corporate Crime, 3-Vols/Set.
  Croall, Hazel/ 9781847874016/ Price:¢G 475.00
 
Corporate Crime involves issues of ever increasing significance, such as the environment, occupational health and safety, consumerism, and globalization. In these areas and many others, inadequately regulated corporate activity can cause considerable harm to numerous victims - many indeed would argue that the total costs of corporate crime exceed those of so called conventional crime. Yet it is not widely regarded as part of the crime problem and not subject to the same forms of policing and punishment. While many corporate activities are subject to criminal law, many are dealt with under ¡¥regulatory¡¦ law, prosecution is rare, and sanctions have generally been regarded as lenient. Looking at how corporate crime is defined, patterned, and controlled therefore raises many issues of contemporary importance. Corporate Crime examines key themes in the study of corporate crime, exploring how it is defined, legally constructed, researched, and controlled. It also looks at case studies of its many forms. It contains a selection of the classic literature on the subject along with a range of contemporary writing. Volume 1: looks at the definition of corporate crime, and how it is legally constructed and publicly represented. Volume 2: focuses on research on the many different forms of corporate crime, and how it has been analyzed by criminologists. Volume 3: concentrates on issues of controlling corporate crime, involving an exploration of regulation and sanctioning along with new approaches. Each volume is prefaced by an introduction which sets out the main themes and contextualizes the selections.
   
VB01-59 Hate Crimes, 5-Vols/Set.
  Perry, Barbara/ 9780275995690/ Price:¢G 310.95
 
Rather than an "individual" crime, hate crime is, in fact, an assault against all members of stigmatized and marginalized communities. With respect to hate crime, at least, history does repeat itself as similar patterns of motivation, sentiment and victimization recur over time. Just as immigrants in the 1890s were subject to institutional and public forms of discrimination and violence, so too were those of the 1990s; likewise, former black slaves risked the wrath of the KKK when they exercised their newfound rights after the Civil War, just as their descendants risked violent reprisal for their efforts to win and exercise additional rights and freedoms in the civil rights era. While the politics of difference that underlie these periods of animosity may lie latent for short periods of time, they nonetheless seem to remain on the simmer, ready to resurface whenever a new threat is perceived - when immigration levels increase, or when relationships between groups shift for other political, economic, or cultural reasons, or in the aftermath of attacks like those on 9/11. Yet, understanding the scope of hate crimes is impossible without examining the victims, the offenders, the consequences and harms of hate crimes, and the actual definitions of just what hate crime is. This comprehensive five-volume set addresses these areas in careful analyses that take into account the variety and incidence of hate crimes and the impact they have on the broader realm of crime, punishment, communities, society, and the security of a pluralistic society that seeks to remain peaceful even in the face of change. This set includes attention to cutting edge topics such as hate crime in the internet age, hate rock, anti-Latino hostilities, Islamaphobia, hate crimes in the War on Terror, school-based anti-hate initiatives, victim services and counseling, and more.

Securing Respect: Behavioural Expectations and Anti-social Behaviour in the UK.
  Millie, Andrew/ 9781847420947/ Price:¢G 72.99
 
Over recent years, the Government focus on anti-social behaviour has been replaced by a focus on respect. Tony Blair's 'Respect Action Plan' was launched in January 2006, Gordon Brown has spoken of "duty, responsibility, and respect for others", and the Conservatives have launched their 'Real Respect Agenda'. Within government, the respect agenda has a cross-departmental influence, but like anti-social behaviour before it, 'respect' has not yet been tightly defined. And what is it about the contemporary UK that sees respect as lacking, that in order to tackle anti-social behaviour we first need to 'secure respect'? Until now, there has been little attention in the academic and policy literature on the Government's push for respect. Securing respect contains ten essays from leading academics in the field that consider the origins, current interpretations and possible future for the Respect Agenda. The contributors explore various policy and theoretical discourses relating to 'respect', behavioural expectations and anti-social behaviour. The book follows the five key themes of: respect in context; young people and children; communities and families; city living; and issues of identity and values. Securing respect is inter-disciplinary, linking theory and practice, and will be of value to practitioners, academics and students with interests in criminology, socio-legal studies, social policy, urban geography, housing, social history, sociology and landscape.

Regulating Sex for Sale: Prostitution policy reform in the UK.
  Phoenix, Jo/ 9781847421050/ Price:¢G 25.99
 
Recent years have seen a 'quiet revolution' in the way that the sex industry is regulated and governed. The consensus around what the problems of prostitution are has broken down and in its place a plethora of contradictory themes has emerged. "Regulating sex for sale" examines the total package of reforms and proposals that have been introduced in this area since May 2000. Bringing together some of the most well-known writers, researchers and practitioners in the field, it provides a detailed analysis and critical reflection on the processes, assumptions and contradictions shaping the UK's emerging prostitution policy. What are the unintended consequences of recent policies and how do they impact on the populations that they regulate? Do they contain any possibility for radical intervention and/or new ways of governing prostitution? The book describes the impact these policies have on indoor sex workers, street-based sex workers, young people, men or those with drug misuse issues. It also looks at the assumptions made by policy makers about the various constituencies affected, including the communities in which sex work takes place. This is the first book to address the contradictions in current policy on prostitution in England and Wales and will be of interest to academics, postgraduate students and policy makers in criminal justice, as well as in other areas, including children and young people, community safety and urban studies.

Street Capital: Black Cannabis Dealers in a White Welfare State.
  Sandberg, Sveinung/ 9781847421203/ Price:¢G 72.99
 
Street capital' introduces the worlds of young black men dealing cannabis at a drug scene called The River in Oslo, Norway. The lives of these men are structured by a huge and complex cannabis economy and they are involved in fights, robberies and substance abuse. They lack jobs and education, and many of them do not have family or close friends, yet they do have 'street capital': the knowledge, skills and competence necessary to manage life on the streets.Centred on this concept of 'street capital', this unique book presents a new theoretical framework - inspired by and expanding on the work of Pierre Bourdieu, the French sociologist - for understanding street cultures. It is based on extensive fieldwork and repeated in-depth interviews with dealers aged between 15 and 30, which explore themes including marginalisation, discrimination, cannabis dealing and drug use, violence, masculinity, hip-hop culture, experiences with the welfare system, and issues of immigration and racism. The book also analyses the discursive practice of marginalised people on the street and identifies the narratives by which these young men live. 'Street capital' is aimed at postgraduates and academics in criminology, race and ethnicity, sociology, social theory and methodology. It will also be of interest to a wider social science audience, particularly those interested in using Bourdieu as a theoretical model.

VB01-57 Surveillance, 4-Vols/Set.
  Goold, Benjamin/ 9780415458191/ Price:¢G 835.00
 
Over the past fifty years, the apparatus of surveillance in modern societies has expanded to such an extent that almost every aspect of our public and private lives is now open to scrutiny and analysis. Each time we walk down a city street or pass through a shopping centre, CCTV cameras record our every move. Credit card and online purchases are logged and used to construct ever more detailed profiles of our consumption patterns and preferences. Personal information held by a bewildering array of state and private organizations is becoming increasingly centralized and searchable. As a result, modern life and citizenship is now intimately bound up with surveillance and the construction of data profiles, profiles that are largely beyond our power to alter or amend, and which may bear little resemblance to how we see ourselves (or want to be seen). Combining fear of crime and a desire for social control, surveillance is an inescapable fact of modern life. Research on surveillance¡Xconducted by governments, academics, and the private sector¡Xhas exploded in recent years and this new title in the Routledge series, Critical Concepts in Criminology, addresses the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of this rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of interdisciplinary scholarly literature. Edited by Benjamin Goold of Oxford University¡¦s Centre for Criminology and organized into three principal parts, Surveillance is a four-volume collection of the foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship. Surveillance is fully indexed and includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. An essential reference collection, it is destined to be valued by scholars and students of criminology¡Xas well as those working in the allied fields of sociology, politics, and urban studies¡Xas a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
   
VB01-55 Icons of Crime Fighting, 2-Vols/Set.
  Bumgarner, Jeffrey/ 9780313341298/ Price:¢G 120.95
 
otorious criminals have captured our imaginations for years and years. But we don't forget, either, the many people and organizations who fight back. J. Edgar Hoover and Eliot Ness have entered into the American psyche as two of our most aggressive and successful crime fighters. Still, there are others who have risen to the occasion, combating crime in all its manifestations. From the U.S. Marshals, FBI agents, and Secret Service to Rudy Giuliani, John Walsh-- host of America's Most Wanted--and Joseph Pistone (aka Donnie Brasco), this set highlights some of the nation's bravest crime stoppers. Icons of Crime Fighting will enlighten the curious mind with a comprehensive overview of the most successful, the most well-known, and the most important crime fighters in recent American history. Part of our national culture, these figures represent all that is good about the American justice system. Moreover, they exemplify how individuals in the criminal justice system have made a real difference in law enforcement. These titans of law enforcement are profiled in this important and timely set. Those covered in the set include: Gun Fighters: U.S. Marshals of the Old West; Allan Pinkerton; The Texas Rangers; August Vollmer; J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI; Thomas Dewey; Robert Kennedy; Jim Garrison; Buford Pusser; Eddie Egan and Sonnie Grosso; Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein; Francisco Vincent Serpico; Joe Pistone, aka "Donnie Brasco"; Vincent T. Bugliosi; John Walsh; FBI Profilers; Sheriff Joe Arpaio; Mark Fuhrman; Rudolph "Rudy" Giuliani; Curtis Sliwa; Dr. Henry Lee; and Dr. Bill Blass.
   
VB01-53 Crime Reduction, 4-Vols/Set.

Across the globe, challenging and contentious issues about community safety and security increasingly exercise governments and police forces¡Xas well as, for example, town planners and car-park designers. Consequently, as a specialist area within the wider discipline of criminology, crime reduction has never before enjoyed such prominence in public and scholarly discourse. With research on and around the subject flourishing as never before, this new title in the Routledge Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Criminology, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subdiscipline¡¦s colossal literature and the continuing explosion in research output and practice. Edited by Kate Moss, a prominent academic in the field, Crime Reduction is a four-volume collection of foundational and cutting-edge scholarship.
   
VB01-49 Prisons and Punishment, 3-Vols/Set.
  Jewkes, Yvonne/ 9781847870230/ Price:¢G 475.00
 
Prisons and Punishment provides a critical introduction to the main debates and dilemmas associated with prisons, imprisonment and punishment, and will acquaint readers with the most interesting and influential literature that has shaped the field. The three-volume set of original classic and contemporary readings is designed to introduce readers to the history and development of prisons, to contemporary theories and issues relating to prison populations, to sociological and psychological literature on the 'effects' of imprisonment, to debates about the management and privatisation of the prison estate and to controversial issues and emerging trends in punishment across the globe. Prisons and Punishment is particularly timely because of the exponentially growing prison populations in many countries and because of new cultures of control which are criminalizing increasing numbers of people and creating a crisis in the penal system.

Hate Crime and the City: Lessons from London.
  Iganski, Paul/ 9781861349392/ Price:¢G 25.99
 
The impression often conveyed by the media about hate crime offenders is that they are hate-fuelled individuals who, in acting out their extremely bigoted views, target their victims in premeditated violent attacks. Scholarly research on the perpetrators of hate crime has begun to provide a more nuanced picture. But the preoccupation of researchers with convicted offenders neglects the vast majority of hate crime offenders that do not come into contact with the criminal justice system. This book, from a leading author in the field, widens understanding of hate crime by demonstrating that many offenders are ordinary people who offend in the context of their everyday lives. Written in a lively and accessible style, the book takes a victim-centred approach to explore and analyse hate crime as a social problem, providing an empirically informed and scholarly perspective. Aimed at academics and students of criminology, sociology and socio-legal studies, the book draws out the connections between the individual agency of offenders and the background structural context for their actions. It adds a new dimension to the debate about criminalising hate in light of concerns about the rise of punitive and expressive justice, scrutinizing the balance struck by hate crime laws between the rights of offenders and the rights of victims.

VA09-229 Handbook of Offender Assessment and Treatment.
  Hollin, Clive R./ 9780471988588/ Price:US$ 360.00
 
There is a growing consensus that offender rehabilitation, prison regimes, and the treatment of offenders with special needs must be based on research, methods and experience that are effective, humane and related to individual, organisational, and social considerations. This authoritative, comprehensive and international handbook will fill this need, as a resource for advanced students and professional courses and for researchers and practitioners. The Handbook provides an up-to-date review of current knowledge and best practice in the rehabilitation and treatment of offenders, in coomunity, prison and secure hospital settings. Major sections cover the rationale and objectives of treatment, risk assessment, the whole range of approaches to treatment (including behavioural/cognitive, family work, reasoning, rehabilitation, and anger management), and the assessment and treatment of various categories of offenders and problems (with detailed chapters that include child abuse, violence, mentally disordered offenders and sex offenders). A final section of the Handbook deals with different types of treatment settings - maximum security hospitals, residential settings, and in the community. This important volume will be essential for prison and correctional services, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists and mental health nurses working with offenders, and probation and coummunity workers, and also for libraries serving academics and professionals in criminology, law and penal policy.
